I won’t deny that we’re a little taken with this nugget, a debut full length from Bristol bssed singer / songwriter Erica Freas entitled ‘young’. Available as a self-funded limited vinyl pressing sometime March where it’ll be lovingly coloured in a choice of blue or beer, blue being our chosen option, ‘red is’ has for […]
I’ve reviewed releases with short track times before, but when a release, in total, clocks in at about two minutes and twenty seconds, it had better be a commendable release if I am to review it.
Dolores Mondo Stash, a band out of Romania, keep the spirit of No wave alive with these two minuscule, yet punchy, tracks. Shades of DNA, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, and a hint of both early Wire and The Fall make this into something rather enjoyable to check out.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have to be admit to being a bit thrilled to mention this release. Some time ago, I reviewed a band called Flying Hórses, a band Raphael Weinroth-Browne was a member of, and whose stunning work on the cello made the album so memorable for me.
On January 24, he will release a new album which balances post-rock, contemporary classical music and the most tasteful aspects of metal. It would have never occurred to me to blend such aspects together, but Raphael weaves things together masterfully.
We would like to thank all of you who ‘liked’, commented and generally supported the blog. It is because of your interest that we share these charming oddities with you. AMOT… plan to be very busy next year, and will also do more with Hip Priest and A Garden of Earthly Delights, our collective wiki.
We end the year courtesy of Jeff Gburek’s field recording in Romania, a small slice of heaven to end a good 2018 in the hopes that 2019 will be that much better. Consider purchasing the complete album here.
Since the weather has been hovering near the 10-degree Celsius mark this evening, now would be the perfect time to share a chilly, yet inviting, ambient album courtesy of the blog’s friend, Robert Scott Thompson. Though this release is available through Acousmatique Recordings, he also has his own Bandcamp site worth perusing.
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.
It’s time to wrap up things for the end of the year, and the next couple of posts will help me close up shop for 2018. I want to thank Alberto Matsumura for his friendship and for sending me a loud, electro, proggy, Neu!-ish killer of a space-rock/techno mish-mash EP to enjoy.
Paraphrasing the Soul Sonic Force and sorting through today`s releases for tunes that could have graced Alfie & Leo`s Amnesia dance floor. JMS have reissued Henri Texier`s first two LPs. Amir from 1976, and Varech from 1977. The cover of the latter will be familiar to anyone who`s visited the Growing Bin, since Basso has […]

I won’t cry poverty, but I do regret not having the funds to pick this one up!
