    • Who The Hell Is Caveman LSD?

      Dave Wesley, January 5th 2018

      Was reading Huerco S 2017 chart on Boomkat, which includes hilarious non-music entries to throw you off his scent…  and I dug to find his listed Caveman LSD track…  It rules.  My perfect combo of lo-fi post-dub-techno.  Artist name fits the mood. Only a few out there and nothing in digital form.  I want more.  […]

      • Deep Ambient Vaporwave From Japan: ekoda

        Dave Wesley, January 2nd 2018

        I virtually stumbled upon this great and prolific ambient vaporwave artist on Bandcamp on the first workday of 2018, which I am sure is a great omen for the year.  Googling ekoda produces no relevant results.  Another mysterious and wonderful aural find.  This music is haunting, concise, and specific.  I’m in melancholic love.  Don’t let […]

        • Underground Techno – Pavel Milyakov – Yalta

          Dave Wesley, September 6th 2017

          Bandcamp has emerged as one of the most effective tools for new music discovery.  I follow collections and purchasing habits of some choice taste makers and I’m never disappointed when surfing for new music within their Bandcamp collections.   Pavel Milyakov’s Yalta release, on what seems to be an nameless Russian vinyl and digital label, is […]

          • Underground Find – Basement Revolver

            Maxine Wesley,

            Although Basement Revolver doesn’t have a wide range of songs released, they’re definitely a band that has huge potential and deserves more recognition than they’re currently getting. The dreamy female vocals combined with the slow tempo instrumental make for incredibly easy listening, especially if you’re a fan of artists like Angel Olsen or other female-led […]

              • 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 […]
