Ilyas Ahmed
With Endless Fire

Super tasteful psychedelic gatefold sleeve on this one, and some mystical loveliness on the wax, too! Ilyas Ahmed is back to weave more of his slow-burning spirituals with rock and drone and psych-folk elements, but always beautifully measured and hypnotic. This is music that really takes...view item »


Big Blood/ Micah Blue Smaldone
Split

After a few so-so releases today, it's nice that something finally jumps out of the vinyl and makes me sit up and take notice. I'm so very tired you know. I've been tired and jaded since I took a gulp from a rogue glass of beer at the pub last week and I'm sure the two events are connected...view item »


Jon Porras
Orilla Oscura

I just listened to half this ruddy album before I realised it’s supposed to be played at 45rpm and not 33. I just thought it was really slow pop-drone stuff. That’s what listening to ambient records for a living does to you. Now that I’m listening to it at the correct speed I...view item »

Evan Caminiti
Night Dust

I really enjoy this guy's individual material. I even prefer much of it to the occasionally dull Barn Owl he plays in as he seems to imbue his solo gear with more haunting textures, dark zen moods and earthy sonic exploration to crea...view item »

Cleared
Breaking Day

Well, when I first started spinning this record I thought I was in for a long and uncomfortable ride, since it starts with an almost concretey intermittent static noise and little else, but then that was joined by a fast, regular cymbal to create a rhythmic structure as drones and creaks...view item »

Zelienople
Show Us The Fire

Zelienpole are a four-piece who hail from Chicago. On Show Us The Fire, they use folk and rock as a base, layering textures lifted from jazz and ambient music, bringing each genre's subtleties to the fore and creating a sound unique to them. The music is stoic: the discontented feelings of anxiety and anger are hidden u...view item »

Mind Over Mirrors
The Voice Calling

Mind Over Mirrors is a project led by Chicago resident Jamie Fennelly. In the project’s seemingly endless evolution Fennelly has recently been joined by Haley Fohr from Circuit De Yeux. Using simple acoustic instruments, a more elaborate indian pedal harmonium and their voices fed through leslie speakers, ...view item »

Blood Warrior
Letter Ghost

Blood Warrior are a duo, bringing their combined talents (honed in O’Death and Super Monster) to the folk music they love. Letter Ghost successfully captures the vague eeriness that accompanies the best English folk, and the vocals have a slight tang of Bill Callahan...view item »

Ilyas Ahmed
I Am All Your Own

‘I Am All Your Own’ is experimental, ambience generator Ilyas Ahmed’s first album in three years. Applying techniques inspired by the work of musicians, such as Lawrence English and Fripp & Eno to his songwriter lead guitar music, Ahmed achieves the delicate balance between simple, lo-fi songwriting and modern music making ...view item »

Panabrite
Pavilion

This sounds pretty gorgeous. A lovely tangling of folky acoustic guitarts and weird electronics mixing up folkiness with cosmic synthery. Nods towards Brian Eno, Mountains and early Gastr Del Sol. Beautiful laid back soundscapes are trampled all over by wibbly synths. If you like these two musical forms and wish to see them baked in a pie, try t...view item »

Tom Kovacevic
Universe Thin As Skin

You might have already come across the music of Tom Kovacevic in his bands Fire On Fire, Cerberus Shoal, Olas and Tarpigh, but here he's going it alone with a series of eerie mystical folk songs which draws on Kovacevic's experience studying Arabic music, employing the oud, nay flute, and djembe and tchung drums to provide a sparse earthy b...view item »


Pulse Emitter
Crater Lake

Daryl “Pulse Emitter” Groetsch returns this week with more of his cosmic synth meanderings, and y’all have probably long since realised that he’s got some of the peaciest peace vibes on the scene, and if so you’ve got a fairly solid idea of what this album sounds like. This is a concept record of sorts - Groetsch wa...view item »

Cleared
Drown

Tone-worshipping Chicago duo Cleared are back this week with another LP of their distorto-drone compositions, mixing electronics, guitars, and lots of sounds whose original sources are pretty much anyone's guess. After starting out with a passage which is certainly guitar sounds, they drift into a kind of dystopian ambience that is both deeply...view item »

Steven R. Smith / Ulaan Khol
Ending / Returning

Steven R. Smith has made music in a number of different styles and for each genre he has explored, he has used a different name. His new album Ending/Returning sees him recording sparse, minimal, and quiet guitar work under his own name and the same music in a more fuzzy, psychedelic style as his alter ego Ulaan...view item »


Mind Over Mirrors
When The Rest Are Up At Four

With so many ambient composers out there at the moment it must be hard for someone to create something special and unique in the vast sea of endless drone artists, Jaime “Mind Over Mirrors” Fennelly however has done exactly that, when this album gets straight into the nitty gritty of whirling s...view item »

Micah Blue Smaldone
The Ring Of The Rise

I have to do this review in double quick time, not (as happened earlier today) that I urgently  require the lavatory but because we are quickly running out of time and being good public servants wanted to at least get a review of this up on the site before we retire for the weekend. The opening track reveals that ...view item »

Svarte Greiner / Lakes Of Grass And Gold
Landscape Of Open Eyes

Landscape Of Open Eyes is a real curio of a RSD release for 2013 -- glorious snippets of dark, filmic worlds on a 7” single.  Svarte Greiner of the excellent Deaf Center is here with some familiar cello/guitar treatments. Lakes of Grass and Gold ...view item »

White Hills
Abstractions & Mutations

This is the first vinyl pressing of what started life as a tour CDr way back in 2007 when White Hills came over here with Dogntank while honcho Dave W was in the early stages of transforming the band from a solo studio project to the heavy cosmic psych...view item »


Pulse Emitter / Date Palms / Expo 70 / Faceplant

Well, four-way splits don’t come much more cosmic than this, do they? Immune have put together a stellar line-up for this, with Pulse Emitter, Date Palms, Expo 70 and Faceplant each getting a full side of vinyl to really stretch out and make themselves comfortable. With this type o...view item »

Micah Blue Smaldone
The Red River

I've been thrown an album by Micah Blue Smaldone called 'The Red River' and i'm really hangin' happily with it on first listen. 'A Guest' is of the tradition of that slow, cyclical confessional alt country led by a heavy hearted & yearning male vocal with some stunning cooing backing vocals from the femme's perspective. Bits of BPB, early Lambc...view item »

Ilyas Ahmed
Between Two Skies / Towards The Night

I picked this one up 'cos the cracking sleeve's been jumping out at me on the pre-order pages ever since it was listed up there. I guess I was expecting it to be on a Grails or Muslimgauze type of tip but it's made a complete fool of me because it isn't. Instead it's got more of a guitar-based psychedelic folk thing going that reminds me of some...view item »

Tiago Sousa
Walden Pond's Monk

This CD for Portuguese piano maestro Tiago Sousa is a suite based upon the work of Henry David Thoreau (me neither but an early day environmentalist and abolitionist according to my...ahem... sources). Its a bleak work of deathly piano tinklings like a severly depressed Richard Clayderman considering imminent suicide. Accompanied at times by...view item »

Scott Tuma
Not For Nobody

This Scott Tuma seems like a complicated chap. I think he's a man with a lot of feelings, many of them sad, if this LP is anything to go by. After a really bizarre opening track with almost nothing going on besides a peculiar high-pitched vocal, this album takes shape as a beautiful piece of m...view item »

Expo '70
Journey Through Astral Projection

Expo 70 has been releasing Kosmische style drone for knocking on a decade now. That's ages... seriously that's a long time. 'Journey Through Astral Projection' was recorded at the same time as 'Where Does Your Mind Go?' with the able bodied help of Matt Hill (Umberto) on bass and drum ma...view item »

Cleared
Cleared

This is the work of Steven Hess and Michael Vallera. Hess is a frequent collaborator and has worked with Greg Davis, Robert Hampson, Miles Tillman, Sylvain Chauveau etc. Michael Vallera has had stuff out on Catholic Tapes and Reverb Worship.

Tape & Bill Wells
Fugue

I began writing about this Tape & Bill Wells 'Fugue' record yesterday but I gave up as the words just were not coming to me. I guess that's probably a good sign though as I was just kind of getting into the melancholy zone of the record, which certainly is a thing of beauty. Wells' guitar playing is delicate and magical. The Tape guys really gi...view item »

Expo '70
Where Does Your Mind Go?

Space rock. There's another thing we used to sell loads of and probably still do but I'm so out of touch I don't have a feckin' clue anymore. This is drifty ambience with twiddly guitar added on top. Reminiscent of 70's dreamers such as Ash Ra Temple, Tangerine Dream, Brian Eno and it has to be said Pink Floyd. The ol' synth 'n' twiddle tho...view item »

Minamo + Lawrence English
A Path Less Travelled

I'm liking the new Room 40 stuff. The last few releases have been great and this one sounds pretty smart as well. The album was recorded in Tokyo and Brisbane and it's a beautifully textured listen. The opener 'The Path' has elements of Brian Eno in there in amidst some lush drones and some acoustic guitar. The album has that very twinkly Japane...view item »

Steve Gunn / Ilyas Ahmed
Decline Of The Stiff / Ignored The End

Ultra strong split release here from two heavyweights. Gunn offers up his blues-soaked vision of American folk music with highly skillful guitar playing that becomes really quite hypnotic. Moments recall the likes of Mark Lanegan, Peter Green, John Fahey, Jack Rose etc. I don't recall Gu...view item »

Rafael Anton Irisarri
Hopes And Past Desires EP

I find strings to be the most emotive instrument in the pantheon of orchestral instruments. You don't cry from hearing the sound of a tuba do ya? Rafael Anton Irisarri had an album out on Miasmah in '07 and now the slothlike neo-classical genius has managed to muster up enough new material in 2 years to fill both sides of a 7" single. That's n...view item »

Steven R Smith
Cities

Oh this Steven R. Smith solo record sounds rather good. He's the chap from Thuja and Hala Strana. Cities is really kinda spooked sounding from the off. It makes me imagine a desolate western American landscape with tumbleweeds and blood on the floor. The mood is somber but has a sense of hope in the distance. Smith uses cello, guitar, melodica, ele...view item »

Simon Scott
Traba

This baby has been a long time coming... Pre-sold to us back in May if I recall, but it has very much been worth the wait. Basically this is a 4 track mini-album on virgin vinyl in lovely sleeve by Erik Skodvin. Apparently the tracks missed the deadline for completion of the brilliant 'Navigare' album and were completed at a later date. It's app...view item »
