Comment: I am back again by digging up in the discography of the Japanese imprint Bunkai-Kei. Some days ago I had listened to an album of being an amalgamation of J-pop, and Western disparate influences resulting in a truly aesthetic entertainment, however, this case of handful of tracks seems to be analogous though revealing its virtue on a bit other premises. It may be a bit less moody and more complicated through its strongly accentuated slamming rhythmic patterns, uncanny samples, glitched-out debris. It is a sort of dance music though standing discreetly apart from well-known styles like house, techno, electro, dubstep. I especially like those string-based samples as if suggestive snatches taken from a cello and woodwind instruments and thereafter magnified and modulated. And of course, it reminds of unforgettable Arthur Russell. All in all, it is a superb selection again. It injects much serotonin into the listener's brain. That's all what we need to get. And the cover print is suggestive for sure.

NAMM – L'Arte dei Rumori (2018)




  • Electronic music 
  • Indietronica 
  • Ambient pop 
  • Post-classical 
  • Modern classical 
  • Synth-pop 
  • Electro pop 
  • IDM 
  • Kosmische Musik 
  • Drone pop

Comment: just before listening to this set of 10 tracks I had listened to GYBE!'s Luciferian Towers (2017, Constellation) which paradoxically introduced L'Arte dei Rumori because the album also involves some orchestrated semi-symphonic post-rock/chamber rock/post-classical opuses yet it is just an angle within the whole (especially a track called La mar). Conversely, predominantly it is driven by adeptly carved synth threads, acidic drones and exuberant rhythmic progressions indicative of lo-fi aesthetics due to those shaggy beats a bit. I guess such a sort of alloy will have been producing for centuries (because it does have a potential on its own) but it is right now and here to be enjoyed. It is a vibrant crossroad for synth-pop, indie electronic and IDM. Saltamontes provides a renewed insight into Kosmische Musik/Krautrock. The issue is a bit in the discography of Ephedrina Records. Very good.
