Julia Kent and Jean D.L. ~ The Great Lake Swallows

It’s been three years since we’ve heard a new Julia Kent album, although the cellist has kept busy as a guest artist (Markus Guentner’s Empire) and remixer (Michael Price’s Diary Reworks).  On The Great Lake Swallows, she teams up with tape manipulator and guitarist Jean D.L. and field

Ólafur Arnalds ~ re:member

If you haven’t yet checked out Norman Records’ review of re:member, we urge you to do so immediately.  It’s quite funny, and underlines the way in which Ólafur Arnalds has conquered the hearts of those who adore lovely music.  But to pigeonhole Arnalds

Michael Lawrence ~ 60 Minute Cities – Philadelphia

What a great concept for an ongoing series!  Bivouac Recording’s 60 Minute Cities is already on its 33rd installment, and the project is but one of three on the site (the others being Social Tapes and Growing Up With Shanghai).  The latest installment comes from Michael

V.A. ~ Notes From the Underground: Experimental Sounds Behind the Iron Curtain

Ever from the Dostoevskian name of this intriguing compilation, there’s a drive to articulate all these avant-garde expressions from beneath the Iron Curtain in the 1970s and 1980s as a form of resistance to the totalitarian utopianism born from the

Masayoshi Fujita ~ Book of Life

Even when played decisively, the vibraphone’s sounds are delicate and diffuse, a far cry from the clarity of its percussive siblings such as the xylophone or the marimba. To these instruments’ strong presence, the vibraphone opposes an absence-in-the-making, a living
