TFSL - Tales From The Sleeping Land (2014)

/Post-rock, Stoner rock, Space rock, Krautrock, Musique concrète, Psych-rock, Drone rock, Avant-rock, Doom rock, Experimental rock, Improvised music/

Comment: this alignment of heavy punching guitar spawned sounds used to create different emotions and sensations in my head. It is more joyous than most of the combos brought forth from the section of doom rock/spaced-out rock. Relatively I did mean. It might be TFSL`s 7-track issue is a less obsessive and more gliding one dedicated not only to survey the listener`s fucked-up state of mind but also providing a placebo to rise up your mind and soul. Let`s call it “the doom or stoner fusion” if you wish. However, the soundscape is powerful and overwhelming by giving only few moments for breathing and extending your muscles throughout a time span of approximately one hour. It is saturated with spacey guitar overdrives and mighty gong sounds to the extreme extent which used to move across the spectrum and penetrate all the layers being discernible on the scale. By now and then additionally to some more tranquil compositions the sonic brew is accentuated with some concrete sounds and signs reflecting upon the de-escalation at some extent. However, all these sounds are seamlessly related to each other or growing out of one another. All of that creates an immensely pleasurable context for your ears generating and unleashing new connections and associations. I am very glad that for a while after the elimination of the Iron Curtain there appeared solid experimental rock scenes in the Eastern Bloc countries. The recent project comes out of Bulgaria. The issue is a part of the discography of Mahorka imprint.

Tuaiki - 惑星 28 (2013)

/Post-rock, Indietronica, Experimental rock, Noise, Alternative pop, Shoegazetronica/

Comment: first of all, it was quite difficult to find out the albums with Japanese hieroglyphs from Internet (for instance, if you are having one exemplar at your mp3 player before and you are trying to find it out at WWW thereafter). However, finally I got it at Poleporecords site in Bandcamp. Tuaiki`s 5-track issue is a keen blend of post-rock induced panoramic yearning, affective rhythms and emotive layers of indie electronic and shoegaze-y examples and digitally formed noise vamps on the verge of the soundscape building up the welcome contrast to the former mentioned ones. Madness meets sensitiveness, heavenly beauty meets tectonic mud. The title track chimes like a free jazz-esque foray into the guitar drenched feedback noise and boldly stumping programmed beats. 何故、此処に居るのか私には分からない involves a stunning noise torrent with some vibrations within it. Indeed, much bangle is up there carved out with love and caring which used to cut through.

Iris Garrelfs - Breathing Through Wires (2014)

/Experimental electronica, Avant-garde, Micronoise, Electro-acoustic, Spoken word, Live recording, Abstract, Sound-art/

Comment: Iris Garrelfs is an experienced musician/artist who has been active for almost three decades. This compilation involves 5 lengthy live improvisations recorded in the United Kingdom between 2012 and 2014. Her music consists of two elements predominantly – her vowel effects and voice bending is accentuated with minimal electronic components either being separated from her voice or coming out of it. At times she mimics the sounds of animals (duck`s quacks, swine`s belches, evil dog`s snarling), at times the music of her is layered and looped with multiple voices (some of them are slowed down into moaning, some of them are slightly speeded up), at times the listener can perceive more nervous and orgastic syllables juxtaposed against more tranquil, angelic voice appearances as if depicting the life course of someone. Her sound proves that a very minimal, stepwise approach on only one word (as the final track builds up in this way) with some sonic manipulations could essentially be enthralling and convincing. Iris Garrelfs´ music could be examined side by side with the likes of Meredith Monk, Laurie Anderson, Roomet Jakapi, Maja Ratkje, Jaap Blonk, Diamanda Galas, Michael Schiefel. In a nutshell, it is a thought-provoking legacy from the potent voice and sound artist.
