Tatiana Alamartine ~ Searching

We tend to roll our eyes whenever we see Nils Frahm name-checked in a press release; but this time, the comparison rings true.  Tatiana Alamartine is the real thing, and while Searching may be more “Ambre” than “Tristana”, her Bosendörfer pieces do share the

Paskine ~ The Shapes of Collapses

Paskine has recorded a ferocious, unstoppable event. Things are falling apart – collapsing – on a massive scale, the universe itself vomiting out intergalactic dust. Dead stars litter a pale sky emitting only a cold, crushed radiance. This isn’t just the

ACL 2016: Top Ten Drone

While ambient music can be surprisingly loud, drone can be surprisingly soft; the genres dance around each other like yin and yang, never separating yet never quite reconciling.  In each genre, the sharpest contrast makes the biggest impact. Drone can

Gaetan Gromer ~ Noise Level

Noise Level sits in a dim, recessed corner as sounds within its mind mechanically spin and hum, turning like the inner wheels of a worn clock. After the field recording has been captured, an infant of sound comes into being – a new

Damian Valles ~ Strand

Two years after Exposure, Damian Valles returns to VoxxoV Records with Strand.  The new cover (a painting by James Whistler) may be a bit brighter than the last, but the music is just as dark.  If anything, it’s gone from bleak to dangerous.

ACL 2015: The Top 20 Albums of the Year

Rich picked Matana Roberts, Chris picked Michael Price, James picked Ian William Craig, David picked Holly Herndon and Joe picked Heroin in Tahiti.  But this year’s #1, one of the longest albums ever recorded, drew support from across the board.

ACL 2015: Top Ten Ambient

We received and reviewed more ambient music in 2015 than any other genre.  Yet conversely, we also received and didn’t review more ambient music than in any other genre.  Ambient is a tricky form, so often eager to melt into the background.
