[Music] Astral & Shit -XĤ

Though I’m not a big fan of bands who release new music almost daily, there are a handful whose work I enjoy in small doses. One of these is the Russian project Astral & Shit.  Yes, I know, lovely name, but the music is soothing enough to let one drift into the Solaris Ocean when […]

[Music] Bandcamp Weekly December 11, 2018

It’s been a while since I posted, thanks to a heavy work schedule ending in a small vacation for me, so I return with this week’s Bandcamp Weekly, featuring Joseph Malik, who went from suffering debilitating mental illness to making a slew of brilliant albums and having a fire inside him to make much more. […]

[Music] MIKROMATIQUE / Jan-Dirk Platek – Samt | Inner Silence

This particular release by German composers Jan-Dirk Platek and MIKROMATIQUE clocks in at just over five minutes, but it’s a very worthy post-rock, post-ambient, post-modern classical work. Consider following Platek on Bandcamp.  Every now and again, he offers his whole catalog for a very low price, and he tends to release gems.

[Music] Midnight Radio – NOIR JAZZ

I never thought I’d review a Signora Ward release here, namely due to a prejudice I’ve developed against modern noise, as too many releases sound like some idiot kid flipping on the vacuum and then recording it, and THEN having the nerve to expect someone to pay for that garbage.  Thankfully, I was wrong about […]

[Music] Jeton Hoxha – Vowel

I’m tempted to say that this release came from out of nowhere, but that simply wouldn’t be true.  Once again, my good friend Raffaelle from Eighth Tower Records releases a bombshell of a release for those of you who are into drone, especially of the kind made by luminaries like Thomas Köner or the Cold […]

[Music] Reptilicus & Senking – Unison

There are times when bleak post-Industrial music can be absolutely rhythmic and beautiful.  A case in point is the release by Artoffact Records’ of a performance by Iceland’s finest dark-electronics project Reptilicus.  This was a performance done in Toronto, Canada, organized by Praveer Baijal, founder of the seminal Toronto label Yatra-Arts, on the happy occasion of […]

[Music] As JK Flesh, Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick Finds Peace In Solitude and Techno

Justin Broadrick should be a name very familiar to you if you were ever a fan of Napalm Death, Jesu, or my two personal favorites from his oeuvre, Godflesh and Techno-Animal.  Bandcamp Daily references his newest material (which has sat around, in some cases, for nearly two decades), JK Flesh. Brilliant material!
