Across his experiences in Italy, New York, Senegal etc., Tomasso Cappellato has trained and played with major artists in both the jazz and electronic music worlds (think Michael Carvin, Rabih Beaini, Donato Dozzy). Aforemention brings together Cappellato’s varied and remarkable talents: he plays everything on this album, save the guest vocal parts. Double LP on Mental Groove.
France are a trio with the unusual set-up of bass, drums and (wait for it) amplified, hurdy-gurdy! As you can imagine, that allows them to unlock proper minimal drone transcendentalism, especially given that they only perform unbroken single-piece sets This 45 minute show from Do Den Haag Church (previously issued as a 2009 CDr) is a real treat for those looking to tune in and drop out. LP on Mental Groove.
A delicious wintery cake from Sinner DC. The Sonic Boom Remixes are two major mood swings. "Endless Valley (Sonic Boom's MBC Version)" is an ominous ball, bouncing towards you as a mass of creepy vocals, gloom fueled guitars and throbbing industrial low end. Imagine Trent Reznor making 'dance' music - perhaps you shouldn't. Juxtaposing that to the max, "The Horizon (Sonic Boom's No Crums Version)" has a real sense of hope, a la James Murphy. Filled with synths, vocodered vocals and percussion, that wraps you up in a cotton wool cocoon. Out on 12" vinyl from Mental Groove.
A longform collection of re-imaginings from 2012’s Future That Never Happened LP, The Ambient Mixes is an 80-minute minimalist trip. Geneva-based Sinner DC take cues from their relationship with Sonic Boom to transport the mixes to new psychedelic depths. Out on CD and 12” vinyl from Mental Groove.
