Valentina Magaletti & Julian Sartorius ~ Sulla Pelle

Valentina Magaletti and Julian Sartorius’ first collaborative record begins with the frantic, indiscernible rattling of high-frequency objects fighting for space atop a series of damp thumps. Over three minutes these thumps align as the two drummers clack, rattle, and stomp

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma ~ Tracing Back the Radiance

In his new full-bodied release, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma positions himself in a ghostly curatorial role in which the presence of collaboration foregrounds the content. A host of guest musicians lend their relatively definable instruments to a prismatic soundscape that recalls the

Yair Etziony ~ Ingress

Berlin-based drone artist Yair Etziony begins Ingress with a quivering synth and an immediate sense of grandeur. “Throbbing Coldness” introduces the album’s textural world, more concerned with space than mood. The droning bass tones and analog oscillators evoke a glacial landscape

Mike Weis & Matt Christensen ~ Seven Different Places

HRNS ~ Naomi

Rui P. Andrade & Farwarmth’s first album as HRNS (pronounced Harness) glistens and sparkles as though underwater. Industrial synths rub against reverberant crowd recordings, while  pulsing vocals interact with bubbling bass tones. The inaugural release from London label Warm Winters Ltd.,

William Tyler ~ Goes West

William Tyler’s fifth record begins and ends with widescreen focus, evoking the sensation of opening a curtain at golden hour and sinking into pink effervescence. Full of major scale grandiosity and intimate American Primitive finger picking, Go West sounds wholly

Anatole ~ Emulsion

One minute into Emulsion, something unexpected happens. After vibraphone, snare drum, and acoustic bass build alongside a lulling piano motif, a breakbeat groove slices through the arrangement.  In its wake: a choppy piano loop and thumping, gridline percussion. Despite its early
