Saskia
Eeuwig Op Reis

With a background in artistic endeavours via a thriving artistic community in Rotterdam Sacha Vingerhoeds aka Saskia eventually found her muse making improvisational music with friends. The result was the early '80s recording of Eeuwig Op Rei which roughly translates as Endless Travels. Only about ten of the tapes were made for family and friends only but somehow it found its way into the hands of Stroom who release its contents on a limited 7". Heart melting DIY downer pop for fans of HTRK, Tropic of Cancer and Carla dal Forno.

Organized Pleasure / Satin Wall
Tropical Stumble / Dans les profondeurs

The grey, depressing landscape of the early ‘80s. We know what it was like in the UK and the US, and it seems there was little difference in Belgium. What else was there to do for the youth other than start a band? Both Organized Pleasure and Satin Wall were formed by disaffected youths. In 1981, following a few gigs, they got their chance to record. Tropical Stumble and Dans les profondeurs were recorded in 1981 and are a document of two bands keeping punk alive that bit longer.

TRjj
Music Compilation: 12 Dances

TRjj like to keep it mysterious and anonymous, hence their lack of individual biographies and the evocative title of their new release: Music Compilation. To be fair, they aren’t wrong. This LP contains twelve tracks of shuffling moods, with sleepy vocals, ticking drum machines, bass rumbles… Simple, but really quite compelling. Out on Stroom.

Pablo's Eye
Dark Matter

Third part in an anthology series that celebrates the work of Belgian group Pablo’s Eye. ‘Dark Matter’ is a music of hulking grooves buried amidst the haze, connecting multiple strands of the 90s dance explosion. The 12-track archival compilation is being put out by the label STROOM, this trilogy hopefully pulling the project out of historical obscurity.

Benjamin Lew
Le Personnage Principal Est Un Peuple Isolé

In the 80s Benjamin Lew used an analog computer to create a number of miniature sound compositions that had something mysterious about them. Le Personnage Principal Est Un Peuple Isolé is the musical equivalent of looking into your hands at an insect you don't recognise. Created with help from Tuxedomoon's Steven Brown.

48 Cameras
Chosen Songs

48 Cameras are a musical collective spread throughout Belgium, UK and Netherlands. Their music is varied and due to the way they work, some members have never even met each other. This has been going on since 1984. Martyn Bates of Eyeless in Gaza, Andy Cairns of Therapy? and Swans Michael Gira have all played their part in the project in the past. Chosen Songs looks like it may be a retrospective of their best moments. LP on Stroom.

Jason Kolar
Modified PerspectiveS

Perhaps the perspectives in Jason Kolar’s Modified Perspectives are the underlying instruments (vibraphone, guitar, piano etc.) that are modified through the heavy use of deepwater reverb, ambient processing and synthesis? Or perhaps the modification is applied to your own everyday perspectives through listening to Modified Perspectives? Either way, this is a good record.
