Fail & Hendekagon ~ Rust

Rust is the third in the Adventurous Music Book Series; readers may recall last summer’s Relatives Schoensein, which paired images of weathered street art with the work of 40 sound artists.  Rust operates along the same lines, with an upgrade: this time it’s

GROWING ~ Diptych

The pandemic has given us a break from many things; some welcome, others less so. For a while at least, we lost the pollution and noise of traffic and started to hear an increase in the chatter of birds. We

Eartheater ~ Phoenix: La Petite Mort Édition

Once in a while, an artist wanders from one genre into another, but seldom does a primarily vocal artist release a primarily instrumental album.  As part of PAN’s unique roster, Eartheater is highly original within her primary field; we’re just glad that

Lea Bertucci ~ A Visible Length Of Light

Few images unmistakably capture the American West more than the image on the front cover of Lea Bertucci’s new album, even if this one has been vividly colourised. Sure, there are more distinct rock formations such as the Arches (in

Yuko Araki ~ End of Trilogy

It is common to read about the mind-obliterating qualities of noise and its negative paths towards selfless meditation, but there is another undercurrent in its stark associations with bodily harm and the possibility to access some sort of outside within:

Nonconnah ~ Songs For And About Ghosts

The third full-length from Memphis-area dronegazers Nonconnah, Songs For And About Ghosts sounds rather like the title suggests; the howls of haunted media, fluttery half-recorded-over melodies, an accumulation of memories, the layers of time, a cresting wave of drone, a
