While Aftershock Vol. 2 is a sequel in name, the sonic terrain is dramatically different from that traveled on last year’s Vol. 1.  The difference is that cellist Henrik Meierkord now joins Mia Zabelka and IcosTech, and their shared journey peels off in a different direction.

Timothy Sawyer Shepard ~ Long Ago Forgotten

Timothy Sawyer Shepard is an artistic polymath, his disciplines stretching from visual art to 8mm video to installation work and now, finally, to an album.  In a way, Long Ago Forgotten is a culmination of thirty years of work; in another, it’s a

Oh No Noh ~ Kanzi

Once again, multi-instrumentalist Markus Rom (Oh No Noh) has delivered a warm, intricate album with an endearing video.  Regular readers may remember the tiny cassette tape brought to life on last year’s stop motion “Alba.”  This year Katharina Huber transforms
