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: Music for Haunted Houses

Halloween is just around the corner, which means it’s time for A Closer Listen‘s first wrap-up chart of 2016! 2016 was a particularly good year for dark music, as these selections are culled from a list many times their size.  The

Valerio Tricoli ~ Clonic Earth

When the sun goes down, Valerio Tricoli comes out.  Or at least that’s what we’re imagining, because this is not daytime music.  It’s far too dark and intricate for that.  Nighttime brings out the nuances of Tricoli’s electro-acoustic works, exposing their tiny

Valerio Tricoli ~ Miseri Lares

Miseri Lares is a hauntingly gorgeous album, the type that would be just perfect for fall ~ yet it’s also perfect for any dark, storm-swept day.  When the weather outside matches the sounds inside, the listener feels at one with the

Antoine Chessex ~ Dust

Sometimes we miss something at ACL.  Not too often, and not for long.  And we are very strict with our rules.  So despite dozens of submissions from 2011, this is only the second we’ve accepted.  The reasons: Dust is exceptional, and it hasn’t
