hypnotic adventures

sabato 16 ottobre 2010

Debut album for this enigmatic trio based in Britain. This music seems to come from the centre of the heart, it burns and smells of sulphur and it will sweep you away like a sonic magma made of fused metal. At the same time Purple Zhro seems to be distant from this planet, and its chants could to be an ode to an alien divinity. One of the best Sturmundrugs album!

The Underwater Beast is back with a second full lenght album, after "Dark as the Sea" on Utech Record. With "The Blyssynge of the Salte" he introduces us to an ancient rite, a purification dance made of gently acid drones, psyched out percussions & voices from and to another dImension.

Architeuthis Rex - Blyssage (from the album: The Blyssynge of the Salte)


Caligine presents its first full-lenght effort in un-folk deconstruction. Distorted fiddles collide with waves of recursive fingerpicking, acid narratives and warm strings interacting; balanced between the idea of song and the opposite calm disorder, struggling against the impossibility of improvisation, filling old folds of frequencies with new content, always unnumbered and unknown, Caligine is a collective based Everywhere and populated by no One.

Caligine - Hastings (Parinirvana Blues) (from the album L'Autunno di Rame)


Explorations of minimal, repetitive themes. slow and spacious sounds. improvisation with analog synth, bamboo saxophone & field recordings. Another great album from Alex Gray.

Deep Magic - Extract Part II (from the album Celestial Communion)

Second record after an EP dating back to last year, for this abrasive art punk trio from Taranto (IT).

domenica 7 febbraio 2010

Primitive percussionism and obsessive sounds will lead you through antique rituals of human sacrifices till the purification, fluttering into a futuristic sabba made of hypnotic drones and spacy flutes. Two long mysterious tracks for a split that smells of stones, blood and bones.

Listen to Alberorovesciato:
"catapultati dalle montagne,
spigoli di pietra nelle costole (sacrifici atzechi)"
Listen to Donato Epiro:"la guerra dei fiori"

After the warped visions of his collaboration album together Kabizdoh Obtruhamchi, Michael Jantz returns to the subtle atmospheres of his solo music with this second album on sturmundrugs records. Acoustic guitar, with touches of accordion, glockenspiel, manipulated voice, piano flute, and scant field-recordings, for a collection of more intimate pieces written and partly improvised over the course of 2009. Blissful.

Listen to Black Eagle Child:
"Days Before"

A 15 minutes piece of quite electronics and psychedelic drones recorded live at Critical Mess Fest @ Tou Scene, Stavanger by the prolific Norwegian experimental duo.

Listen to Bjerga/Iversen:
"Return to Serpent Sky"
