[Music] Manja Ristić – The Nightfall


Manja Ristić is a Serbo-Croatian violinist and experimental music composer whose works have left me captivated.  This latest release, The Nightfall, collects for compositions inspired by the seasons.  From her Bandcamp site:

In haiku poetry, “Kigo” is a seasonal reference, a word or group of words which locates the poem in a season of the year, the seasonal association helping the reader imagine the atmosphere and settings of the poem more vividly.  Kigo evokes memories and feelings which vary depending on the readers themselves: their active role is crucial in haiku poetry as different cultural and historical backgrounds may lead to a different interpretation of the poem.

The release was made available by London-based label Naviar Records yesterday.

[Music] Rauppwar & Sir Edgar Carpenter – Reptilian Abnormalities


Though this is nowhere near easy listening, this collaboration between Brazil’s Rauppwar and Mexico’s Sir Edward Carpenter don’t make mere noise – they add a rather cosmic, psychedelic element to it.

Not for the faint of heart, but rewarding in its own way. It was released by Cian Orbe, out of Santiago, Chile.

[Music] Destruktionsanstalt – Cerebrum Daemonia


Our friends Destruktionsanstalt make their fourth appearance on the blog with one of the most brutal post-Industrial music releases I’ve heard in a while.  Per Najbjerg Odderskov is one of the few composers working in this genre who understand the original Industrial music ethos thoroughly, and it shows in his (very brutal) work.

[Music] NERATERRÆ – The NHART Demo​[​n​]​s


NERATERRÆ is the dark ambient/drone project of Alessio Antoni.  He graces these pages with a release very much reminiscent of early Lustmørd but made on modern equipment.

Though he classifies this under Power Electronics, there’s something more elegant to his compositions than what I normally find in that genre.  This is Power Electronics for the thinking man.

[Music] Richter Scale – A Ripple on the Richter Scale


In 2008, Legendary Pink Dots members Edward Ka-Spel and The Silverman trekked over to Chile where they made a collaboration of Michel Leroy of Un Festín Sagital, Chile’s finest experimental neofolk group.

This hazy, drony, Krauty improvisation is the fruit of their meeting.  Stunningly hypnotic work.

[Music] Throbbing Gristle – The Third Mind Movements

Throbbing Gristle’s 2009 release was something of a swansong for the band before the death of founding member and Coil legend Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson.

Truly, with this release, they went out on top.

[Music] Various Artists – Nostress Netlabel Anniversary Compilation Number 7: The Quantum Differences of Universal Sounds

This is one of the few times you won’t see me share a Bandcamp link for a release like this.  My colleague Andrey Kireyev let me know about this release, and I’m very much thankful he did!

Nostress Netlabel isn’t a one-trick-pony label.  The genres covered include Psychedelic, Post Rock, Avant-garde, Electronic and Electroacoustic music. The breadth of what they are covering is incredible, and the label is offering this compilation as a FLAC file release for free.

This is a great way to acquaint yourself with one of the best netlabels operating today.

[Music] Maurice Pozor – 2056

My friend Maurice Pozor has released an intriguing album.  Though in the Bandcamp tags the album is listed as a noise or experimental album, this has to be some of the most gentle ‘noise’ I’ve heard in some time.  It’s a rather floaty piece, somewhat in keeping with good electronic music from the 1970s and early 1980s, but with a far crisper, cleaner sound.

[Music] God Cancer – Late Night Sessions

God Cancer is a new side project by Per Najbjerg Odderskov, a friend of this blog and the brains behind the stellar Destruktionsanstalt, reviewed here last year as well as in 2016.

This isn’t ambient music, at least not in the fluffy wallpaper sense.  This is harsh, brutal, and reminiscent of something between early Industrial music and a radiophonic opera in the manner of Daphne Oram.

You can say that this is headphone music, but it’s the sort of headphone music which will leave you feeling quite disturbed and covered with goosebumps.  After playing the album several times, I began to realize that this would be appropriate for a stop-motion masterpiece directed by Jan Švankmajer.  Yes, it’s that brutal.

UPDATE: Per let me know that this release will be available on cassette from Splitting Sounds Records out of Serbia in either April or May of 2018!

[Music] A-BELL – Вода моей души

A-BELL is the one-man project of Leonid Churilov out of Minsk, Belarus. There is a dark, creepy, lo-fi soundtrack vibe to his work.
