NakedEye Ensemble, Ju-Ping Song ~ Toy

The toy piano is an ambiguous Victorian invention. Is it a tool for learning? A child’s plaything? A novelty for adults? It’s an inherently limited device: with metal tubes instead of strings, it is difficult to tune with precision. It’s

David Watson and Tony Buck ~ Ask the Axes

Take a deep breath. The bagpipe is an ancient achievement: an idealised human lung, which need never pause its exhalation. Its music is legato: it works on an unbroken ground of successive notes, controlled via the tireless “chanter”, emitted through

Odd Nosdam ~ Flippies Best Tape / DEADBEAR ~ World Music Market

Cosey Fanni Tutti ~ Tutti

Cosey Fanni Tutti is best known as one-quarter of the seminal Throbbing Gristle, co-founder of Industrial Records, and pioneer of its eponymous style of music. Hindsight may be 20:20. But it also simplifies, especially when combined with rigid genre categories.

GNOD (R & D) ~ Vol. 3

Experimental art must prevent its experiments from becoming mere formulas. Gnod is a Mancunian psychedelia outfit which has spent over a decade shuttling between kosmische, ambient music, stoner rock, and related genres. Their back-catalogue is bold and varied: on 2008’s

Celer ~ Memory Repetitions

When an artist is as prolific as Will Long, one might assume there is little time for looking back and taking stock. Not only does the artist seem to produce a new ambient album every month, he also releases house
