Rutger Zuydervelt ~ Astroneer OST

A sense of naïve wonder. A sentimental poetic that reflects upon discovery, whether of new spaces or perhaps even new sensations, as the vantage-point of an adventurous imagination. The music of the ‘last frontier’ that is found among the stars

ACL 2016: Top Ten Experimental

Here’s our fun section; few will be able to predict the contents. Haunted ballrooms, washing machines, stuttered poetry and mythological black dogs all find their place under the experimental umbrella.  Some people may call this “different” or “difficult” music; we

ACL 2016: Top Ten Electronic

The electronic section is where we find the beats, but they’re not always for dancing; in fact, none of these albums is a straightforward club set.  Instead, these artists use beats as a framework on which to hang their wildest

Banabila & Machinefabriek ~ Macrocosms

To date we have heard four full-length collaborations between Michel Banabila and Machinefabriek, each one different in tone.  This one, while intricate and multi-faceted, is their most accessible to date. It all starts with a concept: the micro and the macro.

Machinefabriek ~ Crumble

Many of Machinefabriek’s greatest works are long-form pieces, and the 34-minute Crumble is Rutger Zuydervelt’s finest release since last year’s Sneeuwstorm.  We recall that album because it seems that a piece of that work has snuck into this one: the howl & crunch of

Machinefabriek & Philippe Petit ~ Angry Ambient Artists Vol. 1

The name is incongruous, the concept endearing.  Angry ambient artists?  You betcha.  People expect ambient artists to have ambient personalities as well: floating, drifting, relaxing, calm.  Some may even expect ambient artists to speak in abraded loops.  Yet as Depeche

ACL 2015: Top Ten Drone

Extended tones form the basis of Drone, a category that can be as soft as a refrigerator hum or as loud as the military plane that adopted its name.  But there’s so much more to the genre than simple extension.
