Steve Pacheco ~ The 4th

If music were ever to become visible to the naked eye, Steve Pacheco’s mesmeric The 4th would sport a pair of soft, silvery wings, a supple skeleton and a crimson heart pumping love, only love, into its veins. The 4th seems to defy

Sonic Entrails ~ The Doxey Boggart Original Soundtrack

“ In English folklore, either a household spirit or a malevolent genius loci inhabiting fields and marshes” The Doxey Boggart is shrouded in a thick, pungent drone-fog and eclipsed by a family of gigantic, aged trees. Indistinct voices swirl around in the depths of the woods – a

Monty Adkins ~ A Year at Usher’s Hill

We’re not sure where Usher’s Hill is located, but based on the look and sound of this set, it’s a beautiful place: bucolic, green, sedate.  One pictures sheep at pasture, blankets spread upon the ground, petals falling slowly in the

Hannu Karjalainen ~ A Handful Of Dust Is A Desert

After a lengthy spell away from music, Finland’s Hannu Karjalainen returns with his third album (and the first to use his full name), A Handful Of Dust Is A Desert. It’s a lush, secluded place, no less than an ambient paradise for those lucky enough to

Enrico Coniglio & Matteo Uggeri ~ Open to the Sea

The first thing one notices is the fabulist artwork of Flavio Parrino (1916-1994).  The cover image implies a Victorian summer at the sea: families walking along a calm shore, encountering an inventor and a strange contraption, the man perhaps remarking

Janek Schaefer ~ Glitter in my tears

Glitter in my tears is an unfulfilled promise, its life cut short time and again by daydreams had deep into the night. It marks the 20th anniversary of Janek Schaefer’s first release, perhaps mired in hopes lost by now, a

The Green Kingdom ~ The North Wind and the Sun

The North Wind and the Sun is a record of deep clarity and calm, looking out at the world with a pair of bright green eyes. By largely abandoning his electric guitar and taking up more traditional acoustic instrumentation, The Green Kingdom (Michael Cottone) reinvigorates and enriches his music,
