[Music] DR – Tea Sessions

Much respect to Dominic Razlaff for this album of four sessions which drift off gently into the sea, rather than in space.  I’m not quite sure why, but while relaxing and listening to the album, I feel a sense of calm that I felt in places like the Black Sea, where I’m headed to in […]

[Music] Michael Bonaventure – In Tenebris Ratione Organi

Raffaele Pezzella of Eighth Tower Records continues to show what a magical ear he has for new music artists.  His latest release is by composer Scottish composer Michael Bonaventure, who makes full use out of the organ.  There are bits of sci-fi music, creepy soundtrack clips, electroacoustic music in the style of Pierre Henry’s freakier […]

[Music] Max Corbacho – Echo Of Longing

Ambient music composer Max Corbacho has been producing soundscapes for 21 years now, and in this (free) release, he explores drone in a way that washes over the listener like waves in an ocean.  It’s an all-encompassing release, worth your time and any contribution you can give to it financially.  From Max’s Bandcamp website: Dear […]

[Music] NERATERRÆ – The Substance of Perception

Alessio Antoni is a friend of the blog, having made a previous appearance with his disc The NHART Demo​[​n​]​s in March of 2018.  His latest release surpasses even that dark masterpiece of a debut, partly because he continues to explore the depths of sound, and partly because he was a few guests adding a few […]

[Music] Cousin Silas – Ballard Landscapes 5

Cousin Silas is one of the leading lights of the underground bedroom ambient scene.  Like so many of these characters (whose work I highly regard), he releases a lot of music, but somehow manages to maintain a sense of purpose of each and every release.  These are crafted slabs of spacey, rich music for minds […]

[Music] Radare – Der Endless Dream

There’s always a band that manages to slip into the cracks, no matter how carefully I try to research what’s new.  Take Radare for instance – a band out of Wiesbaden, Germany, who specialize in a noir-jazz (maybe darkjazz?) style that reminds me of Die Haut, who gained fame collaborating with Nick Cave a lifetime […]
