      • Nicola Ratti – The Collection

        Dave Wesley, October 18th 2017

        I agree with this description written by a Bandcamp fan of this release… and I couldn’t have written it better myself: “This is some of the most inventive dub to come out this year. There are affectations of microhouse sound manipulations and an overall level of cosmic weirdness that recalls some of the strange feelings […]

          Movement Building Vol. 3 by Gabriel Saloman Ex-Yellow Swan and all-round interesting man Gabriel Saloman returns with the third (and final) instalment of his ambient ‘Movement Building’ collections.

              Joel Hanson, July 23rd 2017

                  Dave Wesley, July 3rd 2017

                      Wesley Mayhem, June 22nd 2017

                      This album is the real deal.  Instant classic. Growing up in Etter, Minnesota, in the 70s, in the middle of nowhere…  in a house in the middle of a field (which was perfect for UFO landings)…  with a father that cranked outlaw country music on a kick ass quadraphonic hi-fi… even for a rocker like me, […]
