[Music] Bandcamp Daily: The Best Albums of 2017

Here are this year’s (disappointing, as usual) Bandcamp toppers of 2017. No Santiago Fradejas. No A.M. Ferrari-Fradejas. Nor Jeff Gburek. Nor Marco Lucchi. Nor Noël Akchoté. Nor so many other deserving artists who don’t offer up a plate of decent, non-offensive pseudo-soul, hip-hop or tacky dance music. Ah, well. For your perusal, click on the links …

[Music] Various Artists – Ocean of Sound – The 3rd Annual Report Volumes I & II

Words fail to describe just how important Raffaele Pezzella’s contribution to dark ambient music is. He has singlehandedly curated compilations from artists as far away as Russia, Iceland, Iran and seemingly all points in-between while concentrating on his own venerable work.

[Music] mNIPK – ABYSS / HUNTER (ALRN079)

Philippe Gerber of Alrealon Musique never ceases to amaze me. He has to be one of the hardest working men in experimental music (and perhaps in music in general, given the breadth of his work, running a label, DJing, et cetera). He works under the nom-de-plume mNIPK for this project, which is electronic music that …

I have to thank my friend Yasen Kazandjiev for quite a few upcoming reviews of some of the most intriguing music I’ve heard in some time, starting with this EP by Dresden-based band Subact.

[Music] Simon James – Akiha Den Den

  I think this is a case where the description of Simon James’ latest release speaks for itself: This vinyl and CD package collects electronic music created for an abandoned space: Akiha Den Den, the crumbling amusement park at the centre of a surreal radio drama, and the setting for a story woven from the …
