  • 80s Bristol Glory – Claytown Troupe

    Dave Wesley, November 28th 2016

    Bandcamp is such a wonderful thing on so many levels.  My email inbox surprised me with a super cool vintage 80s release on repertoire label Bristol Archive Records, that embodies so much of what I love about that period.  Claytown Troupe previously unknown to this author.  Bordering on Goth but more like the Alarm, vocally…   […]

      • R.I.P. Mr. Cohen

        Craig Grossman, November 12th 2016

Our collective good fortunes found us learning the art of […]

                  Dave Wesley, September 21st 2016

                  Robert Henke is a true alt music hero.  Co-inventor of Ableton Live, music producer (Monolake, etc.), and multimedia installation and performance artist.  I attended a super cool small experimental performance in an old church (Viseu, Portugal) recently and it was amazing. Now he’s doing this:  http://cdm.link/2016/09/watch-breathtaking-fusion-laser-light-sound-deep-web/

                    • Vaporwave and Dream Catalogue

                      Dave Wesley, September 15th 2016

                      Are you hip to the vaporwave genre?  If you like BladeRunner and 80s ambient/experimental music…  maybe even Stranger Things soundtrack stuff, you may into Dream Catalogue’s deep collection of vaporwave releases. I’m hooked and it has become routine office/studio ambience in Sursumcorda Recordings’ Porto location.
