A sequel to one of last year’s best albums (with easily one of the best album covers of all time), this is the third (as far as I know) installment of the circuit-fried glitch project of the artist otherwise known as Susan Balmar. This one’s on a different Bandcamp than the previous two, the comprehensibility-is-far-beside-the-point Psalmus Diuersae. The label has a penchant for removing material or changing track or release or artist titles without warning (the second /f album seemed to only be up for a few days before disappearing), and of course there’s no way to tell who’s actually creating any of these sounds. Most of the sounds are fascinating, though, going beyond the usual eccojam-muzak cliches of vaporwave into something that sounds more futuristic and, well, not just like taking smooth jazz and slowing it down without altering it much. /pq:c covers a nice range from MIDI lullabys to scrambling glitch collages to Schematic-y IDM to slivers of E2-E4-like melodies. I continue to be totally in awe of this project, I think whoever this artist is, they’re one of the best ones doing crazy glitch stuff right now. Available on Bandcamp.

Dead Hands On A Piano: Walking Around

Dead Hands On A Piano: Walking Around

This one immediately caught my attention because of the artist name, but the music is even way better than that. Really noisy, glitchy, messy, distorted, tape-damaged minimal-synth/industrial with Krautrock rhythms and ambient passages. It’s amorphous and unpredictable and it’s beyond awesome. I can’t wait to hear more from this artist. A must-download (and it’s free!) from Placenta Recordings.

Fabio Perletta: Unseed

This is the type of hypnotic ambient glitch album that immediately catches my attention as soon as it begins (Fourcolor also comes to mind). It seems like it’s standing still but it’s always flickering and slowly weaving in and out of soothing textures and droning notes. There’s natural recordings, it sounds like there’s some dripping or flowing water and the sounds of seeds (the physical CD comes packaged with Japanese cherry tree seeds) but it’s the drones and glitches that hook me. This whole album is seriously lovely.

Twigs & Yarn: Still Forms Drift CD-r (Eilean Rec., 2015)

Twigs & Yarn: Still Forms Drift CD-r

Twigs & Yarn: Still Forms Drift CD-r

Austin-based duo Twigs & Yarn’s debut album on flau caught me by surprise when it came out in 2012. Its glitchy plunderphonic folk-pop sounded fresh and resonant, and non-album single “Yuurei” was even dreamier. Their second album is a limited CD-r release on Eilean Rec. and is a bit closer to pure ambient than their debut, but there’s still plenty of subtle field recordings interwoven with fragile electronically-enhanced folk songs. “In The Valley” is just super lovely. Some of the songs are loopy and rhythmic, and others get swept away into a lush, richly vegetated environment. Really incredible, I recommend this duo highly. The album’s sold out physically but it’s still available digitally on Bandcamp.

Moongriffin: Glimpse of Future LP (Cartilage Osseux Records, 2015)

Moongriffin: Glimpse of Future LP

Moongriffin: Glimpse of Future LP

Debut full-length from a Portland-based artist who has spend time in the Chicago jazz scene and has produced this impressive spacey electronic jazz album. Really fluid and abstract yet tightly controlled. Belongs in the same conversation as Dave Douglas’ recent collaboration with Shigeto or Justin Walter’s album on Kranky, or any of the jazzier excursions affiliated with Brainfeeder and the like. It clearly sounds like jazz, and can be enjoyed by open-minded jazz listeners of old, but it has a modern sensibility and adventurous production, and isn’t afraid to have glitchy electronics (such as “No End”) or hip-hop-influenced rhythms. The title track is the only one with vocals, which are kind of slowed and dirgey. Otherwise, it’s a really intriguing set of instrumental post-jazz explorations. Available on Bandcamp.

soundtrack: Different Drum

soundtrack: Different Drum

No clue about this movie at all, but this soundtrack CD has some decent lo-fi rock, handmade pop, and cinematic indie. Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt’s “The Town Crazies” is gentle, optimistic drum machine pop. The Hardy Tree’s “Around the Steeple” is more post-rock/contemporary classical, with spare layers of violin, acoustic guitars, pianos, electronics, and vocals. The Underground Youth’s tracks are dark solo goth rock. Del Mas Alla’s “Dreams” is hissy, sloppy, atmospheric lo-fi dream pop with alternately serene and noisy guitars and flat smashy drums. Ubi Escalona’s “We’re All Waiting For Something” is a pretty organ instrumental with a soft chiming melody. “Long Gone” by The Hardy Tree is a pretty waltz-time song that feels like tiptoeing through a mystical forest. Of the 3 Xray Eyeballs songs, “Broken Beds” is faster and thrashier and more fun. “Flying With the Swallows” by Ubi Escalona is a haunting instrumental with reversed melodies and birds chirping. Del Mas Alla’s “Our Times” is sloppy Oh Sees-like garage rock. Home Blitz’s “Perpetual Night” is tight Wire-like post-punk pop which ends with a brief “Stairway to Heaven” quote. Likewise, The Underground Youth’s “Crash (BSA Jam)” is slow solo boogie-rock which dips into “Sympathy For The Devil” a bit.

Noise Camp was inside the MOCAD this year instead of outside at the Mobile Homestead because it rained a little bit. Even though there wasn’t a campfire it was still one of the most chaotic Noise Camps yet!
