Dave Fuglewicz – Orange Mist Sunrise/Orange Mist Sunset (1996)

  • Synth music 
  • Improvised music 
  • Electronic music 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Experimental electronica 
  • Psychedelic 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Minimal synth 
  • Drone

  • Avant-electronica

Comment: one of the main characters of the blogosphere is to dig out music having been produced many decades ago and having the status of virtually forgotten. Given that many of these blogs used to have a considerable following it will give a refreshing impulse to many projects. One of the most striking categories is music which can be pigeonholed as minimal synth, krautrock tinged experiments most of them following DIY attitude. One of those issues is also Dave Fuglewicz's Orange Mist Sunrise/Orange Mist Sunset consisting of 12 tracks. You can see an impressive analogue synthesiser-based technical park on pictures and your sonic experience probably fits with it. One hears throbbing Moog synths providing the pace and intriguing layered synthesises with different phases on experimentation. You can hear how different layers used to shift against one another, more profoundly, one of the layers is switched off white the other one is switched on for pitch effects, deceleration and acceleration, lots of arpeggio moves. And vice versa. All of that used to happen in a minimal vein and at the same time you obviously figure out it is an example of improvisational music. And at the same time it does not do away with a free flow and psychedelic facets. It might be you start thinking of it as way too lengthy but one should consider the fact it is in concordance with the nature and mind of this kind of music. Remember the works of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, for example. By the way, with regard to contemporary synth wizards like M Geddes Gengras, Steve Hauschildt, Daniel Lopatin you can see the same tendencies to go on. The issue was the tape of a month of The Living Archive of Underground Music curated by Don Campau.

Radikal Satan – Nueva Marginalia (2009)

  • Tango 
  • World fusion 
  • Alternative 
  • Post-industrial 
  • Neofolk 
  • Dark folk 
  • Art music

Comment: Radikal Satan is a combo from Argentina who has produced some suggestive music so far. If tango as a style is of Argentinian heritage then Nueva Marginalia is genuinely Argentinian. Beyond tango which is an adornment on the basis of post-industrial and neofolk music it ebbs and tides between heaven and earth, between an artsy heaven and an artsy hell. Mostly its murky components are concerted into a subtle whole yet at times the anarchy falls down to the ground. It is finely predominated by a deranged mind. If you used to enjoy Einstürzende Neubauten induced desperation and anxiety then such a sort of hell is also presented over there. Just listen to it to cope with your own devils. The aforementioned variety filled with spaced-out breathing attests to the fact the 4-notch issue provides memorable moments. The release is a part of the discography of Discos Buen Pony.

Marcel Pequel – From One To Nine (2012)

  • Modern classical 
  • Contemporary classical 
  • Piano music 
  • Mood music 
  • Art music

Comment: from one to nine by having been illustrated with short compositions on a piano where one dim chord is followed by another in a loose yet refreshing way. It varies at length from a minute to a three minute. I guess the piano is played in a dark room being away from a hot summer day. The mood is being created, the relations between the chords equate the flowing, slowly and a bit hypnotic atmosphere which provides a forward-flowing and purgative impulse. For sure, it is a moody experience yet simultaneously it is an instance of active listening where any chord must be caught with stark seriousness. The outing is a bit of the discography of Headphonica.

[Teaser of the day] Jeremy Messersmith - #5

  • Indie pop/rock
  • Art pop/rock
  • Baroque pop
  • Singer-songwriter
  • Chamber pop
  • Alternative pop/rock

Release: Paper Moon
Label: Self-released/Bandcamp
Year: 2012

Hundra Fåglar – Svågerpolitik (2014)

  • Post-rock 
  • Art rock 
  • Chamber rock 
  • Epic

Comment: the release comes out of Sweden, it is an instrumental release without any possible spoken suggestions yet quite fragmented music provides enough suggestions for. From frozen chamber music and piano tapped induced dreams and iterative effect loaded and shifted guitars to dim synthesised flickers and a glockenspiel driven still life. Indeed, the result is rock music, more profoundly, rock music as a state of art.

The Tinopener's Art – A Mode Of Reward (2017)

  • Electronic pop 
  • EBM 
  • Synth-pop 
  • Post-disco 
  • Rave music 
  • EDM 
  • Dark electro 
  • Trip-hop

Comment: this bunch of 14 tracks is a hefty meal of different styles, some of them are more contemporary, some of them harking back to the past. While stepping back it is sometimes necessary to get a glimpse toward the future. At times it is surprising like entering into a parallel universe. Do you know how would sound Rammstein produced by an electronic body music producer? Here it is. By the way, many songs are backed up by rough German language. The artist has set up some tracks on autotune and deliberately clean digital sounds thereby showing up his wish to take part in a contemporary music scene, more profoundly, entering into the post-rave and EDM scene. For sure, many compositions are vamped up a bit in an exaggerated way and it's a positive approach to shake the frowsty styles. The words are often seductive and loaded with velvety eroticism. The album is finished off with a suggestive trip-hop beauty, called At The End Of The Road which reminds me of Pulp's more seedy tracks like This Is Hardcore, and Seductive Barry. Artsy pop. It is classy to end an issue with a classy track.
