Ricardo Donoso ~ Re_Calibrate

Re_Calibrate is the counterpart to 2018’s Calibrate, an industrial album that has aged particularly well.  The rounded geometrical shapes on the cover have been replaced by angles, but the sense of drama remains intact; if anything, it’s been amplified.  This is the

Jakob Rehlinger ~ Powehi / Carl Oesterhelt ~ Eleven Pieces for Synthesizer

Ed Carlsen ~ Morning Hour

Morning Hour is a fun and fascinating album.  Multi-instrumentalist Ed Carlsen uses the form of modern composition, yet nearly every track blooms into beat-driven, electronic timbres.  Then just as one is prepared to call it an electronic set, the piano makes
