[Music] Sshe Retina Stimulants – Play Cronaca Nera

This release by Sshe Retina Stimulants is one of the most claustrophobic works I’ve heard in some time.  This is noise, but done with a way that makes the experience almost magical.  I had the feeling of falling down an endless rabbit hole a la Alice in Wonderland.  It’s a harrowing release, and one of the most worthy noise releases I’ve heard in some time.

[Music] Ambient Fields – Ólafsfjörður

A hearty thanks to Geoff Gersh (Ambient Fields) for sending me an album of such spacious, head-filling music that I managed to unwind for the first time in a week.  All the effects created in this work are done with a guitar, some effects and a pump organ.  Taking inspiration from being in Ólafsfjörður, a small town in the north of Iceland, his location seeped deeply into these compositions.  This was a treat to listen to.

[Music] E.E. Engström & The Twin Street Tree Trunk Love Ensemble – Small Town Curse


Darkjazz goes film noir. E.E. Engström & The Twin Street Tree Trunk Love Ensemble provide a gorgeous soundtrack to enjoy a dry martini with. Imagine the aforementioned Darkjazz mixed with something that would make Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (gone instrumental) proud, not to mention having a twang of creepy country. The vibe is dark, unsettling, and hopefully just a taste of what should be an amazing 2019 for the group.

Should you have a Spotify account, I suggest adding the group here.
