Two identities, one artist. Jönsson Tõll is a composer who is based out of Portugal. This release features some of his own work, plus more under his working monicker, Mauno Koivisto. Of of the most beautifully bleak techno albums I’ve heard in ages.
Jonáš Gruska is a composer out of Slovakia who works in the medium of electroacoustic music, only using updated techniques. Lots of glitch, loops, and drones make for some very engaging compositions.
Finland’s Pan Sonic break out an ultra-minimalist beat that reminds me of a some fine drumming.
Germany’s Fake Plastic Heads have a new, jagged speaker-wrecker of a track for your enjoyment. Pure digital bliss!
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.
Frank Bretschneider is one of the few composers who can make a glitchy racket actually sound like it makes sense. Beautifully recorded and composed.
