Taylor Deupree
Fallen

Fireplace soundartist Taylor Deupree offers more of his bitty but warm experiments on Fallen. With principle photography for the artwork taken in Iceland, land the record sees him restrict his pool of equipment, using primarily piano and then falling into a Moog-shaped hole with smatterings of guitar...view item »

Federico Durand
Jardin de Invierno

Argentine sound artist Federico Durand produced new album Jardin de Invierno simply, using single takes of immediate performances using various quiet instruments, and then assembling and juxtaposing them into the particular shapes we hear here. Jardin de Invierno (or ‘Winter Garden’) is a sweet, sub...view item »


Celer
Zigzag

Celer's torrent of releases seems to have slowed to a trickle of late, but it's no surprise to see Will Long back on my review pile this week with another newie. This is one of two CDs out this week on Spekk which come in beautiful book-like oversized card sleeves. It probably won't surprise you to learn that the disc itself contains beautiful u...view item »

Kazuya Matsumoto
Mizu No Katachi

Kazuya Matsumoto is a Japanese percussionist making his debut full-length with Mizu No Katachi. It seems from listening (and from the descriptive-yet-poetic track titles) that parts of the record were recorded outdoors, Matsumoto using the sounds of the rain falling on his resonant instruments to gorgeo...view item »

The Alps
Jewelt Galaxies / Spirit Shambles

‘Jewelt Galaxies/ Spirit Shambles’ is the first full album release by The Alps that is comprised of their first two releases on CDR. Recorded in 2005 in Scott Hewickers's living room, mostly in one session with just one microphone, The Alps have created a series of beautiful, picturesque soundscapes....view item »

Stephan Mathieu & Taylor Deupree
Transcriptions

This Stephan Mathieu + Taylor Deupree 'Transcriptions' CD is very posh looking in its oversized A5 package. This is a very interesting collaboration which involved Mathieu playing wax cylinders and 78's through portable gramophones then recording into computer via microphone. Deupree than adds vintage synths and guitar. The results are very captiva...view item »

Piiptsjilling
Molkedrippen

Here's a lovely mysterious CD on SPEKK from minimal supergroup Piiptsjilling, who feature two Kleefstra brothers and Rutger "Machinefabriek" Zuydervelt as well as someone I'm not familiar with, Mariska Baars. 'Molkedrippen' is their second album, a seven-piece suite of improvisations for guitar, vocals and ...view item »

Dirac
Emphasis

We got a bunch of tasty stuff in on Spekk this week. Three whole brand new releases! They all come in those lovely oversized cardy sleeve things and I reckon if you had the lot they'd look lovely stacked up all side by side smiling all experimentally at you. Dirac is one of these 3 and they're a name new to me! They're a trio from Austria who make ...view item »

Federico Durand
El estanque esmeralda

Here's the second of these beautifully presented Spekk CDs for the week. I've already tackled the mammoth single-track drone-a-thon from Celer and now I have this spinning disc of prettiness from Federico Durand which is split into eight much more easily digestible fragments. The formula here tends to be a sop...view item »

Opitope
Physis

Those two titans of Japambience, Chihei Hatakeyama and Tomoyoshi Date, have been putting their heads together once more for a new CD of transcendent peace drones and lightly chattering field recordings. After a day of dry and difficult records it's a welcome relief to h...view item »

Peter Wright
An Angel Fell Where the Kestrels Hover

We've had a bunch of smart looking titles in on Spekk... I played the Peter Wright 'An Angel Fell Where The Kestrels Hover' album the other day and was most impressed. Wright is a super talented New Zealand native and everything I've had the pleasure to hear by him has moved me. His approach to the guitar is fantastic with conventional string sound...view item »

Tetuzi Akiyama & Toshimaru Nakamura
Semi-Impressionism

Tetuzi Akiyama & Toshimaru Nakamura are a pair of improv dwelling familiars from Tokyo, Japan and 'Semi-Impressionism' is their first collaborative release. I've no idea how to review the sound of rumbling friction textures picked up by a strategically placed microphone, sparse, deconstructed meandering folk, minimal steel string plucking, inte...view item »
