  • 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 […]

  • C​:​/​NN​/​1

    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

  • Weird and Kind of Cool – Coffitivity

    Dom Fox, January 25th 2017

    Coffitivity is a web destination that has options for streaming cafe and coffee shop noises as ambient aural background for solo freelancers, etc.   I am hoping their ambient environment options expand to include more inane environments as opium den or congressional hearings. Yours truly, Dom

  • Nonkeen – Saddest Continent On Earth

    Dave Wesley, January 24th 2017

    FB posted by very interesting and prolific musician (hammer dulcimer) and music curator, Joel Hanson, who is moving back to USA from Morocco (big move).  Nonkeen is ostensibly (don’t you hate that word) a Nils Frahm side project and extremely good and extremely chill.  So take the pill. PS:  Joel, when are you going to […]

  • Mix – Silk Saw – Secret Thirteen Mix 206

    Dom Fox, January 7th 2017

    This is a crazy experimental dark mix with electronics and improv.  Wonderful stuff. Don’t listen if you can’t handle scary cinema. Also, long live Mixcloud.

  • Dewtone – Super Chilled Streaming Radio and Label

    Dave Wesley, January 3rd 2017

    Dustin Morris curates one of the great pleasures in my life…  Dewtone streaming radio.  This station is instant Valium and a connection with hyper-contemporary electronic music currents and music producers across the globe.  It’s free and easy…     Watch the flickering light…  You’re getting very sleepy…

  • 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 […]

  • Inner Ocean Records

    Dave Wesley, December 9th 2016

    Remember trip hop?  It was my introduction into “deep” instrumental music  and spinning vinyl.  Portishead’s uber economic 40 minute show at Minneapolis’ old Guthrie theater, on Hennepin Avenue, goes down as number one on my list of live shows. Experimental lofi trip hop is alive and well…  and residing at Inner Ocean Records, where you […]
