[Music] Robert Scott Thompson – Pale Blue Dot

Shame on me for not knowing so much about the work of Robert Scott Thompson. I had the pleasure of hearing his work via samples over on Soundcloud, but it wasn’t until recently that I thought to properly explore one of his albums. There’s nothing quite like hearing these pieces in their proper context. It’s …

[Music] Kayno Yesno Slonce – Mare Verborum

a3441648155_16

There is a gentle beauty in the music that reminds me of Bert Jansch or The Incredible String Band, but one can hear elements of Wyrd Folk like Shirley Collins or the more …

[Music] Cermaque – Neboj (i.e. Don’t Worry)

3534-p_333

Indies Scope Records is one of my favorite record labels in the European continent. Their latest comes from poet, director and songwriter Jakub Čermák (doing business as Cermaque). The album is a wonderfully heady mish-mash of indie folk, alternative pop, elements of hip-hop, all held together by Čermák’s lyrical oeuvre. Check out the album here.

[Music] Destruktionsanstalt – Swedenborg

Screen Shot 2016-09-30 at 1.41.04 PM

Though it must amuse my confessors to no end, I grew up enjoying the bleakest of sounds in early Industrial music and the black ambient music which followed about a decade or so later. The best of the lot seem to be growing out of the calm climes of Scandinavia, and the best of that …
