skewed house of mirrored sound and tar pit jazz from planet mud.

disjointed, lively, bass-heavy and occasionally raw & minimal dubby atmospherics. while it manages to wander and cover a
lot of ground it never feels discordant yet thought out and planned, working within multifaceted odd inner logic of its own. in
other words: timeless, vast and green.

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!

*side a, collaborative meandering cosmic experimental ambient piece called broken telephone from 2020,
made online during early lock-down by 16 musicians. an calm, mysterious and bit oppressive affair, perhaps
a bit like early Tangerine Dream at points? side b a track called Christies transmission which is compiled from two
live performaces recorded at a park in 2021 by almost the same 16 people who are involved in broken telephone.
its gentle, thoughtful yet bit sombre ambience. flutes, bells, electronics and Maple Leafs baseball game. real nice tape!

*on the tape cover it also states: "NO WORDS FOR THESE KIND OF BIRDS". this is a split tape between Fire moss
and Think of a name, both (maybe) from Canada. side F.M has a four fine minimal pieces made with (mostly scraped
and delayed) violin, bass, keyboards,synth and piano. all is real airy and totally wonderful.
on side T.O.A.N there is a great live recording from year 2018 made in Welland. hard to describe slowly morphing,
meandering, experimental, psychedelic and improvised maze of samples, guitar, bass, loops and such. real good!

DEL STEPHEN: (split) (VAC-068)
*A side excellent, yet very crude, live recording from september 29 2022 at Hotel Wolfe Island. set starts with 5 brief
poems with backing soundtracks that go from tropical moods cassette hiss to weird, atmospheric and tiny trip hop and
onto even a bit intimidating, minimal and very lo-fi light industrial noise. the latter might sound like that due the
wonderful lo-fi quality of the recording. the 2 songs that end the set are long, freeform versions of songs called "heart loft"
and "translation emotion express". its a fantastic document of inspiring and real special live event! side B is titled
"imagine that the sea is on the other side" and consists of 3 tracks of airy, thoughtful, soothing, mysterious and sublime
synth music pieces and one lovely hissing and distant field-recording / audio collage. with the tape comes a lengthy two page A4
where the events around, in and outside the Hotel Wolfe Island concert get described by Del. in the text a term a performer of
secret music
gets introduced and it fits here 100%. very much recommended!!

DUBBLING CRACK MONSTER: radio inside (IN.005)
*the label has a real good description of this, so here it is:
Capture radio waves with an antenna, through a cable, through the drum machine, synthesized by circuits. ... The devices influence and trigger each other.
Radio signals are chopped and channeled through the circuits. Bass fields resound in noise, radio shreds floating in the drones.

i guess these are mostly recorded in live situations at shady houses and basements in new jersey. you can almost hear the mold.

JAZZHAND: verhous (eë editions 05)
*bright, almost neon, green tape in a clean, sophisticated, neat, hand-folded and stamped cardboard box with a typewritten small and blue
info-slip. again, a travelogue of sorts - this time you find yourself in India, Catalonia and San Antonio of Texas. you might be pressed to
ask how i know about this and i would not tell you. carefully assembled confusing cut-up and/or layered field-recordings, rustling of cans,
hitting of pans -TV dialogue, street shouting, street noises, street hiss and ritual chants, Finnish, English, Hindi, all camouflaged so that
even if you know the language it wont make much sense most of the time. verhous is finnish for cladding but that is probably just a
coincidence. the tape starts with a unsuccessful phone call and ends with deep plunge thru wheezing, temple-like tunnels occupied by small
computer-like gadgets and finally arriving into middle of a mass of something sacred. "waltz for lorelai", indeed. its simultaneously an
familiar yet totally alien chapter in the ongoing war against time by one, jazzhand kinda guy. salute the dawn!

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.

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

GRMMSK: one world - nowhere to hide 12" (SPB12026)
*3 older & 4 newer GRMMSK tracks of weird, ambientish, dubbish, electronic things with seriously alienated, disoriented,
paranoid & trapped/tripped feel. cant really think anything that sounds even remotely like this.

HEART STRUCTURE QUARTET: soul horses 10" lathe (VACANCY RECS. 050)
*a companion for the cassette of same name, i guess? a significantly shorter version with one 5 minute song that is not on the cassette. wonderful.

HUMAN ADULT BAND: sonic enlightenment LP (ENO 081)
*A: side long odd, scuzzy, dragging, psychedelic doom garage piece. neon on shirt, leg broken, sitting in a public
laundromat. its ghastly, weird and disjointed yet somehow it feels all right & appropriate.
B: some odd snippets, including atleast: loop of swamp-life, noisy impro free rock, mystic speedy jam, weird almost
collapsing metal, wide & messy guitar duo soloing.

*33rpm from year 2012. on side A two sogs, one odd, dark, lo-fi dubsteppish chiptuneism and other
weird jolly caribean self-improvement electro. on B side one improvised rhythmic electronic music piece.

NOLLS: losing game / here before 7" (LOT002)

and drums and decorated with seemingly random noise scuzz and fieldrecordings from abroad.

PIECE WAR: Apathy (SOA-001)
*excelent, emotional, raw, messy, and fuzzed out lo-fi LP from this NZ guitar, vocals and drums duo.
this is US vinyl reissue of 10" flexi that came out year 2014. just a really good record. for instant proof: piecewar.bandcamp.com

POST-MATERIALISTS: moist rita & glyptique 7" (PMM101)
*one sided, 33rpm single from russia 2012. two tracks on side A, "moist rita" excelent, quite Residentsesque,
airy and pretty minimal weirdly smoky little affair of a song with very muffled vocals in what i suppose is russia.
"glyptique" shorter instrumental piece with a nice saxophone motif with confused tiny guitar(?) noise. on side B
artwork and letters on red. silk screened covers, 8 page booklet informing you whats what + yellow voyerism
themed postcard of sorts. solid.

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.

RENEGADE SCANNERS: hands on future (LAL-31)

SHRINE & MYTRIP: descent 7" (AMEK060 / CRVS022V))
*2022 collab between two bulgarian drone / ambient projects. two tracks of messy, cavernous high octane dark ambient with
slight, weird, almost power electronics undercurrents. it doesnt move at all, just hovers there.
8e + postages

*odd experimental 7" compilation of four quite abstract & somewhat muddy pieces. from norway 2001 - byart, taming power,
obscure tapestries and empy-ass noise. deep bass, typewriter, clanged stringed instruments, synth, field recs etc
taming power cover version.

TAMING POWER: fragments of the theory of general reality 7" (EMR-019)
*A1 cassette recorders in the red and something else - spacious analogue experimental bleeps, screech and minor crunch
thats real hard to specify. at times it sounds like whales singing. its a wonderous thing. B1 is a field-recording, maybe from
africa? B2 continues where first track left, developing into a noisy finale. title of the record is fitting.

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 atmospheresadd 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.

NEW C O M P A C T D I S C S & C D R S:

BLACK BEVY: 8,300 miles (ARPH-0007)
*hard to pin down and surprisingly diverse, quite ambient record made by a duo. there are wide guitars, synths, drones, howl,
distant clicks, tiny rhythms, silent field-recordings, humm, samples, ghostly vocals, long pitched vocals, etc. etc. all cloaked
mysteriously into a nice & odd feel of pop, a very left-field and experimental pop sure but a pop nonetheless! the song The
wind has gather up the vapour
will most likely be a huge retro banger hit at the post-apocalypse discos of 2098.
maybe a very stripped down FSA record "Mirror" can be seen somewhere in the distance, far, far away? I am not sure, but
atleast one thing is clear: buy less - listen more.

HOWLIN MAGIC: the dreaming (LAL-38)
*instrumental, lo-fi, psychedelic rockin´ freak-out blues and more hard to describe fuzzy and soulful avant racket from 2007.
its probably a solo effort so it has a nice one-sided, linear dimension on it. raw, inspired and much better than you think!
10e + postages

*fine, shining balloon shaped and electronically altered guitar scrapings, noodlings and pluckings. overall the whole disc is a
meandering affair of airy atmospherics and thoughtful staring at the window on the wall. at points could also fit as music for ghosts.

MANIACS DREAM: turku hold em (LAL-37)
*two long pieces of very free, abstract and crude 100% in the red noise chaos. there is bass, guitar and drums but most of the time it doesnt matter.
real dense & excellent! from year 2007.
10e + postages

MURMUR: untitled CDR
*neat four track noise CD-R from Canada year 2023. it is not that harsh or fierce or whatever but more subdued, thoughtful, spacey
and calm. slowly collapsing and shifting pieces of obscured audio detritus with a fantastic use of tiny gaps of silence and meandering whine.
CD-R in hand-assembled sturdy cardboard sleeve with three tiny pictures of some.. things. bravo!
