[Music] Fake Plastic Heads – Je Ne Sais Quoi

Fake Plastic Heads hail from Munich, Germany, but their sound brings together a disparate blend of styles. There’s little else out there which blends electronic music genres so well.

[Music] Louis Sclavis Sextet – Réponse à Gavotte

Clarinetist Louis Sclavis was one of my first exposures to this kind of music. It was through a magazine that included a free CD that I first heard his music, and I’ve remained mesmerized ever since.

[Literature] The Known Unknown: On Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky

Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky is a Russian-Ukrainian writer of Polish descent whose works compares favorably to the Argentine polymath Jorge Luis Borges. After picking up two of his works, I can see why.

This article, from The Paris Review, is a great way to be introduced to his life and the themes of his work.

[Music] Tablet Sleep – Inversion

As if I don’t have a number of interesting reasons to visit Russia. The Day Of Life Forgotten is an independent net label operating, it seems, out of Moscow (though if it’s not the case, I’ll update the post). This release, by my friend Alexei Serebreikov under his monicker Скрижали сна, is a great balance of electronic music, mixing elements of psychedelic music and drum & bass, a touch of IDM, all the while keeping everything sounding balanced and rhythmic. Something worth pursuing.
