CORIN ~ Enantiodromia

And now, today’s vocabulary word.  Enantiodromia is “the tendency for things to turn into their opposites,” especially when it comes to the mind: despair to hope, sorrow to joy, confusion to resolve.  According to Carl Jung, the mind seeks equilibrium after

Yuting Wu ~ Mindtrick

When presenting a debut release, it’s always helpful to have a striking cover image.  Mindtrick‘s sci-fi photo is a macroscopic image of the slime mold Comatricha. Even more amazing than the optics, the music sounds like the art.  Are our minds

Sedibus ~ The Heavens

The Heavens marks a triumphant reunion for Alex Patterson and Andy Falconer, who last teamed up on The Orb’s Adventures in the Underworld 30 years ago.  It’s also the first release on Orbscure Recordings, an imprint of Cooking Vinyl.  Yet as

Simona Zamboli ~ Ethernity

“Take me somewhere,” sings Simona Zamboli on the song of the same name, the only vocal track found on the immersive Ethernity.  The plea is wobbled, looped, and folded into pulsing pads with an ever-increasing insistency.  While some may perceive the request as

NOMON ~ Card II

Reunited sister percussionists Shayna Dunkelman & Nava Dunkelman are clearly enjoying themselves on Card II, an exuberant EP that passes all too quickly but lifts the mood like a latte.  Nava is familiar to our readers as half of IMA, while the

Current Value ~ The All Attracting

Warning: this album is loud.  There’s no ignoring The All Attracting when it plays; the volume is at least 10% higher than that of the average recording, while the low end is particularly visceral.  This is immediately apparent in the crispy first

Murcof ~ The Alias Sessions

Occasionally, an artist and a label seem inseparable, synonymous even. Amon Tobin and Ninja Tune come to mind, as do John Coltrane and Impulse Records. I could compile an exhaustive list of artist-label marriages forged in the heavens, but that

Back in 2017, we were blown away by Ziúr‘s debut album U Feel Anything?  At the time, the Berlin’s DJ / composer was already mining new territories.  Over the past few years, she’s continued to chart her own path, flirting with the
