Winter music is inspired by winter and sounds like winter, yet winter contains a wide range of inspirations and sounds: from ice-locked ships to children’s games, from piano flurries to fronts of drones.  Its variety is its beauty.  Just as

Tim Catlin & Machinefabriek ~ Whorls

Tim Catlin & Machinefabriek‘s third collaboration is also their first in four years.  The gap in time is clearly responsible for a shift in sound.  Whorls is as dynamic and exciting as Patina was soft and calm.  When the latter was released in 2011,

Rutger Zuydervelt ~ Sneeuwstorm

Can a saxophone sound like snow (sneeuw)?  In the hands of Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek), the answer is yes.  On this album, Otto Kokke (soprano saxophone) and Colin Webster (tenor saxophone) find their contributions rumpled, looped, and otherwise manipulated in the service

Esther Kokmeijer + Rutger Zuydervelt ~ Stillness

This stunning project reinforces the adage that good things come in small packages.  Postcard aside, the USB stick is only the size of a tie clip, but it holds some of the loveliest images you’ll ever see, and with the

ACL 2012: The Year’s Best Album Covers

These are times of widespread disconnect, and music is one of the most genuine ways for a person all alone to feel understood. We’re seeing DIY backlashes against this loss of connection everywhere (Just look into the boom on homesteading

Celer & Machinefabriek ~ Hei/Sou

Celer & Machinefabriek are having a great year.  In addition to their separate releases, they’ve toured, released a download set of the tour, and completed a trilogy of fine vinyl singles, of which Hei/Sou is the final piece.  Perhaps the most exciting thing
