    • Jesse Osborne-Lanthier – From A Flawed Apex Which Led To The Head

      Wesley Mayhem, May 18th 2017

      This is a rare and fantastic blend of experimental music and techno structures with a striking holism.  Bandcamp showed me that Philip Sherburne purchased these bits and bytes, so I checked it out.  I shot.  I scored. Long live Jesse Osborne-Lanthier. Long live Where To Now? Records, UK. Long live Philip Sherburne. Long live Bandcamp. […]

      • Earth by Means of the Currents

        Adas Butler, May 16th 2017

        Earth by Means of the Currents was a series of ten original artworks by Autumn Richardson & Richard Skelton, collaged almost entirely from Evan Hopkins’s ‘On the Connexion of Geology with Terrestrial Magnetism’, and accompanied by two new recordings of voice, strings, tone generators and field recordings. The book is a little hard to find now […]

        • Corroded Trip-Hop – “GEA” WeMe030 by J.K.

          Dave Wesley, April 18th 2017

          In the 2000’s, trip-hop was my gateway sonic drug to lo-fi deep dark dub techno and related genres… which have ended up as genre quicksand… engulfing my aural foci ever since. J.K.’s “GEA”…  Wo…  I haven’t heard anything as corroded, dark, jarring and cool since some of the earlier DJ Krush releases (before he went […]

          • Repost – Why is this website mixing ambient music with police scanner audio so intensely gripping?

            Dave Wesley, April 3rd 2017

            When I wake up in the morning and find this kind of stuff on Facebook, it literally makes my day.  This is a re-posted from FACT Mag.   “Youarelistening.to is a site that generates strange, endless sound collages by loading ambient tracks from SoundCloud and blending them with police radio chatter from locations across the […]

            • Northern Valentine – Born Yesterday

              Dave Wesley, March 30th 2017

              I discovered this amazing track during a Soma Drone Zone infused meditation session, this morning.  It is was compelling enough to break through my theta trance that I interrupted the meditation to check the track that was streaming.   Born Yesterday is the perfect combination of organic and electronic drone.  It sounds great detuned to […]

                • Vaporwave? New Drugs For Nuclear Families Of The Seventies

                  Dave Wesley, January 27th 2017

                  Although “vaporwave” is not listed in suggested genres for this reissued release, by an alias of Brian Grainger, on the Milieu Label, it’s definitely going to be tagged as such in my collection.  Really amazing music.  If you like Boards of Canada, Tycho, and/or the vaporwave genre, this may be for you.   PS:  Don’t […]

                    Dom Fox, January 26th 2017

                    Chill and interesting music from C​:​/​NN​/​1 who is “An implausible particle and genuine actual human person. Making unpopular music for unpopular people since 2001.”  Their artist alias and Bandcamp tagline make this worth a click and the music is worth the time. C:/NN/1 by Negative Neutron

                    • Demos – Beyond The Underground – Maneek

                      Dom Fox, December 14th 2016

                      An old drummer friend (Joe Jogodka) sent me some fresh demos, from Deep Southern U S and A, for a 20-year project called “Maneek”.  The underground Zappa-esque novelty factor runs very high.  And, I can’t wipe the smile off of my face.  Wish this was on cassette.  Wish I still had a cassette player and […]
