Nomadic Female DJ Troupe ~ Mix One

We’re going on a picnic, yay!  Do we have everything?  Walkman?  Check.  Amplifiers?  Check.  Microphone?  Check.  Circuit board?  Check.  Turntable?  Check.  Wires?  Check.  Okay, looks like we’re set!  *walking, walking, walking*  Hey Francine, this looks like a great spot!  *unpacking*

Rokaia ~ See | Dwell

We have a very good feeling about Limerick, Ireland’s Rokaia, whose debut release seems a harbinger of things to come.  See | Dwell may be a short beginning, but it’s a strong one.  Like Ian William Craig, Holly Herndon and Katie Gately,

木目鳥 ~ Mokumedori

Performance artist Mokumedori goes all out.  She creates a distinct persona (actually a pair of personas, big Mokumedori and little Mokumedori), makes her own masks and props, and decorates her stages and songs with fairy tale images and sounds.  She’s an original

Jon Mueller ~ dHrAaNwDn

What a beautiful and elegant release.  This is why I love records ~ not just the fidelity, but the sense of surprise (there’s no fast-forwarding through these grooves!), the possibility of elaborate packaging, the expansive art, and in this case,

Marcus Fjellström ~ Skelektikon

To enter Skelektikon is to enter a world of dark fantasy.  The elegant video for “Hermitage” (directed by Marcus Fjellström himself) is drenched in dark shadows and simultaneously informed by Kafka and Grimm.  Strange creatures and contraptions interact as the moon rises diagonally

Colin Andrew Sheffield & James Eck Rippie ~ Essential Anatomies

Fourteen years is a long break, but that’s how long it took Colin Andrew Sheffield & James Eck Rippie to return to the studio.  Variations first appeared in 2001, followed by two sound installations; then silence.  When one listens to the newly expanded

Antoine Chessex | Apartment House | Jérôme Noetinger

Two long-form pieces, recorded at London’s Cafe OTO, offer a brand of excitement that can only be captured live: edgy, interpretive and unpredictable in all the right ways.  Each piece is composed by Antoine Chessex, although the players vary on each;
