V.A. ~ Notes From the Underground: Experimental Sounds Behind the Iron Curtain

Ever from the Dostoevskian name of this intriguing compilation, there’s a drive to articulate all these avant-garde expressions from beneath the Iron Curtain in the 1970s and 1980s as a form of resistance to the totalitarian utopianism born from the

Sculpture ~ Nearest Neighbour

Over the past decade, we’ve become accustomed to experiencing Sculpture (musician Dan Hayhurst and visual artist Reuben Sutherland) as a vinyl/video combo. Nearest Neighbour flips the script with tape and graphic novel.  For those who prefer the old ways, there’s still a video

Dean Valentine ~ Ventricular Beats

With much of the Northern hemisphere sweltering in at times overwhelming heat, an intense electronic set inspired by a desert makes a fitting soundtrack. Oppressive and kinetic, Ventricular Beats is derived from the soundtrack to a 2016 film, Tiger Raid,

Somni ~ Bloom

I’m writing this on a Monday morning.  The sun is out, the breeze is refreshing, and I’ve just returned from breakfast with friends.  I’m wearing a new blue t-shirt that reads, “Life Isn’t Easy ~ Life Isn’t Perfect ~ Life

Forma ~ Semblance

Peter Burr’s cover is a perfect reflection of the music: man and machine, improvisation and code.  In visual terms, this is a stark departure from the prog look of 2016’s Physicalist, although half of those tracks would feel at home here.

Precocious Mouse ~ Virginia Creeper

Virginia Creeper‘s hisses are an invasive presence, souring air and constricting oxygen. Ringing with the shrill clang of an alarm instead of a polite purr, Virginia Creeper‘s continuing hiss is a communion, a slasher in line with the Scream series or Point

Various Artists ~ Solstice/Peaks

Today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, known as the first day of summer and (oddly) midsummer.  We’ve come to know the Archives and Faint labels for their winter music, but their two new compilations stretch
