bubbling under mangled broadcasts and shiny diamond caves, minimal groove & inept yet spirited horn action,
skewed house of mirrored sound and tar pit jazz from planet mud.
could be thought as a kind of parallel tape with LAL DDD release called "Cycles of celebrations" since

JAZZHAND: muuttomatkalainen (HYSTER34, 2022)
*one sided three track C90 that manages to go all over the map, bit like the person behind it. first track is magnificent,
5 dimensional 30 minute whining, meandering piece of kunnon kentta-aanityksia eika mitaan syntikoita which slowly
evolves into a mighty, carefully assembled hissing blizzard of crispy, light noise. sound of nature? second track is nothing
but spacious synth(s) blops, booms and swooshes. slightly galactic. finally, suiting for the confusing whole, third track
is almost folk made with kantele, delay, dripping water(?) and a deep nod towards old 70s lords of modern classic and
maybe a slight tip of a hat to 00s US freak folk masters..? anyway, sun = moon, contact mic water.

*here are three tracks of digital, crepuscular and slightly gallant neofolk with sounds that sound like theres
a moderately conservative preset configurations kept on keyboards and other machines. this might do well
as a soundtrack for a fantasy themed computer game? have to say that at this point in time i really have no
way of knowing if this is any good or not. experts mention its promising. its also prob quite rare since there
are only 33 copies made.

ANOTHER WAY: Az Idő Rövid Története (POSTHUMAN PROD 003)

bit of drone, couple tracks of odd children-song-like structures, some beats etc etc. rather dada.

AUTHARKTOS: carpetscapes (TCD1432017)
*basically a nice experimental tape of droning sine waves and/or keyboards, tiny sounds, garbled tape whine,
confused atmospheres, the usual fare. all good & fine. yet what makes this tape stand out a bit is its way odd
production values and choices - there is really weird digital crap glitch on top of everything through the whole tape,
sometimes it fits almost magically and sometimes its really fucking annoying. its close to a sound you might get when
recording something really loud with cheap earbuds. this tape is edition of 18 copies.. which is probably just fine since
it is clearly not for everyone. file under: annoying, limited, baltic & brilliant.
ps. somehow this tape also reminds me at times of Crochet from UK.. i have no idea why.

BARDO TODOL / DEVID CIAMPALINI: el origen del pensamiento magico (IKASUS-063)
*pretty inspired collaboration between two italians and one argentine. new ageish / ambient, experimental synth /

such, all assembled into an weird, flowing collage. really diverse & really good!

DGR DBBLMN & KUUP: kajalood (TCD1302017)
*quite hypnotic, bit technoish, maybe improvised, duo electronics/synth music from estonia. sounds really nice & pleasant. you might place
this in the middle on a imaginary line drawn from mr. oizo to iltasyntsa. maybe. sounds also seem to slowly disintegrate towards the end of

HUMAN ADULT BAND: T. Penn collections (SAGA HOUSE 3)
*this collection includes: one great droning 17 min neck of a bass vs. amp haze, scuzzy & messy lo-fi recordings of
songs in minimal band setups, some bass / guitar duo situations. lots of noisy improlike, free psych noodling. one T.Rex cover.
i guess these are mostly recorded in live situations at shady houses and basements in new jersey. you can almost hear the mold.

*A side a neat report on a dark dream / vision, flows like an odd radio-play of sorts. B side feels more free-form with nice experimental
ambient scapes drifting around. through the whole tape there is weird and interesting juxtaposition with cleaner, modern sounds and some
older, dirtier and somehow analogier objects.. recorded in somewhere called "ilmestysmaja".. which maybe translates as "vision hut"?
real good one.

*live recording from Italy 2006, it starts with a heartbeat and then inept fluting, humming and wailing, echoed bells, percs, mumbled
statements, slow chance punting, rattle, screech all get involved and then it somehow ends finally in a incomprehensible sing a song
action. its a ritualistic mess, yes.

JORGE VICARIO: broken music (JZK030)
*C40 tape that sounds at times like a skipping cd-player with a bit of soul. could be filed under minimal easy-listening
glitch, maybe? dont know if on purpose or not but anyway well fitting for this release, the liner notes are also written
in very broken english. nice listen.

*two 13+min tracks of very coherent, thoughtful, lively and breathing droning ambient. side A brings to mind certain hissing and
humming NZ sound, without sounding like a copy. Suurpää is a district in Ulvila, Silmarillion is a book by Tolkien, do the math.

JUKKA HERVA: kultainen nauha (IKASUS-115)

LEITMOTIV LIMBO: spiritual disturbance (NO LABEL..?)

MARC BENNER + SICK DAYS: waste of time, waste of money / submit split (VAC-055)
*Benner: real tasty 10 minute of mushy fieldrec, tapehiss and maybe, just maybe, some minimal synth work. excellent and confusing listen!
Sick days: close recording of wind, water or fire and a soothing, meandering plink plonk of a music box / xylophone / electric toy piano or
such + radio / contact mic scrape & hiss.

*weird compilation of electronic/synth onetakes (this prob means improvised?) recorded in Vienna during 2021-2022. its a varied affair of eerie,
oddly darkish and somehow even bit sickly atmospheres. unifying factor between all tracks seems to be that there is a person called Marie Vermont
involved. no idea what it means. interesting comp!

*great, mellow, crisp, heroic, spaceish, concrety, krauty synthmaze music from helsinki. sounds somehow oddly retro & futuristic
at the same time, maybe an google fueled AI that has been tricked into thinking its living in the 60s might come up with similar end product?
strongest track is sidelong "Brahenkentt which sounds bit like soothing new-age music for robots. weakest "Alppikatu", which is luckily
also the shortest one on the tape. so more is more and less is less in robot sphere. 40min, three track tape. middle A in their name should have

"glyptique" shorter instrumental piece with a nice saxophone motif with confused tiny guitar(?) noise. on side B

POST-MATERIALISTS / GARGAMELEK: my jazz - my vibes 7" (PM-002 / 201666)
*REALLY great split 7" from year 2016. first track on side PM sounds like odd and
perplexingly slow, pounding drums / circus-midi take on jazz of sorts. its quite horrible actually. it states on the covers
for this side: "45 or 33 rpm". so maybe with 45 the track makes more sense? i dont know..
luckily the second PM track, "space smile", is a really wonderful tiny collage of mariachi trumpet, some
underwater singing, loop of something from 50s, an guitar and maybe something else. excelent!
on side G one(?) long track of more traditional free jazz sound with instrumentation of alt sax,
percussion, paintings. and its exceptionally good too! raw sax and tiny busy percussions
somewhere underneath the wailing. really great. if i decipher the covers right the players on this side
are called Gargamelek, Maoist mojo and New York 1975. nice.

VALANCE DRAKES & IVAN SHOPOV: unearthing buried chapters (AMEK024)
*real nice beat-oriented, calm LP of ambient and bit glitchy digital sounds from bulgaria. digital tapestry that you could almost gaze onto forever. its not at all complex or harsh, the sound is rather
poppy and minimal at times. disjointed beats, clicks, pleasant ambient sections and mildly skewed atmospheres
add up to a whole that make very enjoyable and durable listening experience.

V.C.O.B.T.: find new homes 7" (BTV-007)
*two quite chaotic noise tracks and one bit more droning cut, all very much looped. at times sounds like there are maybe a lot of distorted guitars used on this? it gets pretty heavy at points. good stuff!
