Sea Charms ~ Mystery Tapes

I’ve fallen fast for these Sea Charms.  This is a fun, homespun project, with Crystal on synth and Jess on sax.  The first two Mystery Tapes are taken from practice sessions, reflecting free-flowing, semi-improvisational play.  Add some arts and crafts ~ plastic toys,

Various Artists ~ the opposite of aloof vol. 2

Attractive Coincidence (ACR) introduced itself early this year with the opposite of aloof vol. 1, and over the past few months has become a sweet success story.  A dozen artist releases, great promotions and an ear for quality have helped

Gaël Segalen ~ Memoir of My Manor

After 2o years of sound work and field recording, Gaël Segalen finally released her first LP.  2016’s L’Ange Le Sage was melodic and abrasive in equal quantities. Memoir of My Manor continues in this vein, adding a new, nearly club-like sensibility.  The Parisian artist calls

Leila Bordreuil / Zach Rowden ~ Hollow

Hollow is basically a noise record made with acoustic instruments, with Leila Bordreuil playing the cello and Zachary Rowden playing the double-bass, which they proceed to exploit thoroughly in the name of sound production. There is no management in this

Jessica Aszodi ~ Prayer for Nil

The extremes of an instrument such as the voice have been relatively less explored than those of most others that do not potentially involve, well, ruining a part of the self and the body. Thankfully, experimentalists such as Jessica Aszodi

Sontag Shogun ~ Patterns for Resonant Space

Patterns for Resonant Space is ambient in sound, but experimental in design.  The album was composed in reverse fashion, with the piano offering comments on the field recordings and tape loops.  The background becomes the foreground, yielding an appreciation of space

Pan Daijing ~ Lack 惊蛰

Pan Daijing does not sound like anyone else.  This is a rare accomplishment, nearly unheard of for a debut LP.  Even her label (in an unusual confluence, PAN) avoids namedropping, despite the fact that such comparisons have become de rigueur. The sonic
