Park Jiha
Philos

Park Jiha first came to our attention with 2018's Communion which was a compelling blend of traditional South Korean musicality with genres like jazz and ambient. On Philos she takes this same approach, but creates tracks of such great density that they can't help filling whatever room they're played in. On tak:til.

75 Dollar Bill
I Was Real

Third album from 75 Dollar Bill. There sound is something like ambient blues? The guitar sound is there, but it's sparse and often left to ring out. Everything else creates a gently lulling soundscape. This all makes I Was Real completely beguilingly and heartfelt. An incredibly moving album that offers a moving alternative to what minimalism can be. 

Park Jiha
Communion

Having gained recognition as a member of the Korean neo-traditionalist duo [su:m], Park Jiha broadens her already rich musical vocabulary on her debut solo album. Composing for instruments like the hammered dulcimer and piri (a double-reeded bamboo flute), Park and her ensemble create a quietly intoxicating blend of sounds that skirts between native Korean styles, minimalism, free jazz and contemporary classical composition. To Western ears there are oblique references to Steve Reich and Sarah Neufeld.

75 Dollar Bill
Wood / Metal / Plastic / Pattern / Rhythm / Rock

No, 75 Dollar Bill. That's not how you play Tetris. It doesn't even work on paper. Anyway, this is a duo-plus-quintet of people who got together to play such instruments as wood, plastic, and rhythm, making an interesting music that isn't confined to any singular global scene, but definitely sounds like a chamber version of Goat. Long, dusty jams for your eternal journey.
