akaUno – [Bad Panda 085] (2011)




  • Indietronica 
  • Electronic music 
  • IDM 
  • Alternative 
  • Glitchtronica 
  • Cowbell indie

Comment: this batch of two compositions chimes like having no existence, as if coming from nowhere, as if reflecting upon objects which did exist somewhere uncountable days ago. In an ordinary sense, this invisible flow of sonic waves does not exist yet this configuration is always over there to be activated for one's pleasure if needed. Indeed, it was issued in 2011 by Bad Panda, it is a year which seems to be a bit within our grasp, and a bit beyond it. Much water has streamed within the river bed since then. The opening track Sunday Market is saturated with glistening rays as if a strong, radiant reflection by such combos as Mouse On Mars, Kreidler, Hood, To Rococo Rot who did like to make up love affairs with intelligent dance music, krautrock, indie and post-rock. The composition is intense and tight, all of its slots are filled in with blissful yet a little bit poisonous magic. The other track called Hidden Leaves can be considered just an accompaniment of Sunday Market yet it is a fine sequence. The guitars are less ambivalent, the tempo is more slowed down and restrained and the intensity of the first track has disappeared. It is a reflection of something which slowly fades away after having experienced the apotheosis. It is called cowbell indie, isn't? Nice.

Obasquiat – #Drops (2019)




  • Drone 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Improvised music 
  • World fusion 
  • Field recording 
  • Musique concrète

Comment: it may be the easiest way to describe this album through the examples of other artists' music, through such examples as Ashtray Navigations, Uton, Kemialliset Ystävät, Six Organs Of Admittance, Charalambides, Tont, Sam Shalabi, Natural Snow Buildings, Children Of The Drone, Vibracathedral Orchestra. More profoundly, the common thread of the aforementioned artists is droning. Droning through different aspects and accents, through ethnic and folk music of Asia (from Middle East to Hindustani peninsula), through modern day folk, through post-industrial and psychedelic angles and patches. Another common thread is improvisation. To put together drone and improvised music it can be summoned as experimental. One can see droning as the hard core of this 15-notch issue yet improvisation can be considered as the intention and thought of the whole. One can hear volatile clouds as experiments with concrete sounds and open spaces, voices and vowels which used to rotate inseparably around the hard core. The marvellous outing (the Brazilian Marco Antonio with his guest musicians) is a part of the discography of Sunyatha.

Comment: Bradford Cox was back in his hometown Athens, Georgia, USA to perform at a club on the last day of the 00s. The set embraces 10 tracks within a 83-minute. It is an impressive, even dreamy live through improvised songwriting based on noisy outbursts, loopy ambient and space pop chords and rough guitar-based tour de forces as if backed up by an adept guitar hero. Mellow and rough segments used to collide with one another yet all of that does not create some sort of incongruousness to minimize the effect of the whole set. He searches for silence after a noisy outburst, and vice versa. However, those noisy appearances are the best part of the live because by immersing in it one can find out some sort of oblivion In fact, it reflects very exactly upon a human being`s life experience with intention to get fulfilled with positive impulses and get satisfied based on rejecting negative memories and forgetting adverse experiences. The first song was dedicated to Vic Chesnutt who had committed suicide 6 days before. The live set is presented via Southern Shelter.
