SubknoT – Moment EP (2015)

  • Ambient 
  • Ambient techno 
  • Electronic music 
  • Chilltronica 
  • Chillstep

Comment: by listening to this 6-notch release and given that the title of the issue it can be assumed the music is about crystallisation of the time and space. Indeed, you cannot separate one from another. Yeah, at the first glance, you can perceive it as an example of easy listening, chilled-out electronic progressions with iterative elements and shuffling sublime techno beats within it. As a listener, it makes me feel comfortable by dreaming of blissful blue lagoons or going back to innocent topics and pleasant personal memories. To those times when the soil was not fallen over your head yet. Of course, the boundaries between such styles as techno, chill out, and some sort of step tagged music can be considered hazy in this case. Maybe the most delineated composition is Breathe with the predominant magic chillstep pace. Another exception is the finishing notch Another with those fine breakbeat cadences and nigh (electronic) shoegaze-y walls. The beatific issue is a part of the discography of a Japanese imprint, On Sunday Recordings.

Narayana – Vacu Sessions 34 (2013)

  • Avant-garde 
  • Black noise 
  • Illbient 
  • Dark ambient 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Power electronics 
  • Leftfield 
  • Neoclassical 
  • Dystopbient

Comment: heavy or light, new and old, predictable or totally unknown: the important here is the dynamic of the music. A continuous exploration of sound. This is a description of the imprint Vacu Sessions of which description is literally relevant to Narayana's whole as well. I could add one more sentence to it – this is blackened and even more blackened, occult and spiritual. Similarly to most of the releases on Vacu Sessions Narayana's one consists formally of one composition of different merged sonic facets. The listener can hear acute noisy outbursts and malicious fadeouts, horrendous reverberations and stealthy serpentine monsters to leap to your backyard. And heartbreakingly wailing women. Tectonic basses with low frequencies are varied with high-pitched sounds as if being vamped up by the debris from an abandoned junkyard. As if a soundtrack for a story of H.P. Lovecraft, a tribute to Ctulhu. I mentioned the word soundtrack and I did suggest it with proper intention because the main course is somehow cinematic, spookily cinematic. Masterfully horrible, skillfully epic.

Shea Bilè – Tzimtzum (2016)

  • Neoclassical 
  • Spoken word 
  • Hip-hop 
  • Rap 
  • Darkwave 
  • Crossover 
  • Neofolk 
  • Apocalyptic folk

Comment: undoubtedly this 7-track issue is one of the most peculiar ones I have encountered within recent months. Given that the issue comes out of the imprint Torn Flesh Records hip-hop as a partial way to create music was a quite huge surprise. In truth, Shea Bilè represents his cryptic, diabolical yet somehow lofty lyrics by rapping and chanting intermittently. At times his side is accompanied by operatic female singing. The rest part of the formula is more conventional if it could be possible to say in this way – neoclassical ornaments and darkwave-esque carvings are up there to veil the whole with the more murky curtain. By listening to it one should admit that a human being is the biggest enemy to herself/himself. One searches for redemption to get rid of nothing. Yeah, it is our obligation to create values and comply our duties but there is a danger to get overstretched for the sake of Nothing.

Los Pilotos – The Process Of Learning (2016)

  • Krautrock 
  • Psych-rock
  • Electronic 
  • Experimental rock 
  • Avant-rock 
  • Improvised music 
  • Motorik

Comment: just discovered that the 4-notch outing was released exactly two years ago. Behind the project are three men, more profoundly, Eric Es, Alex Morales, and Keith Helt (I guess obviously the one and same person who sends announcements and information about coming brand new releases on Chicago-based imprint Pan Y Rosas Discos to your email address if you are subscribed at the site). They play guitars, the bass, the drums, and synths/electronic devices to produce a dizzy rock embodiment with incisive angle toward knee-deep psychedelia, and avant-garde/avant-rock. More detailly, the combo employ many electronic manipulations and sampled spoken word cuts to create both disorienting and somehow lofty feeling as if tearing off the conventional social borders around them. They set themselves and the listeners free. All what we want to be is to be free. Scarf Of Hair is a stoned mix of speed metal and psychobilly. Lemmy would have been proud of it. One of the compositions, We Ooze In All Directions, can temporally be considered the central composition because it will have clocked at a 20 minute. However, musically it is an analogous yet exalting case. I like the trio's approach by crafting rehearsal room tinged raw sound (all that massively tectonic romp at the bottom and keyboard skronking atop). The mentioned track reminds of some anti-establishment bound rock compositions like Velvet Underground's Sister Ray, and Faust's Krautrock. It is followed by the self-titled track based on an electronically, filter-heavy and debris filled storytelling and the whole track as a disturbed composition in overall as if driven by a convulsive interplay between the closed and opened stereophonic channels. In a word, it is a truly overcoming, truly cutting-edge release even in terms of the era of postmodernism. What else could I add? The rest of the albums by Los Pilotos the listener could get from within the site of Pan Y Rosas Discos (and Free Music Archive) should also be listened to.
