Between Interval: Legacy (Spotted Peccary, 2017)

April 20, 2017 at 8:08 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Between Interval: Legacy

Pretty good deep space ambient/downtempo with a slight sci-fi theme. This artist remixed Sally Shapiro almost a decade ago, but I’d say this is closer to Johan Agebjörn’s solo stuff. Pulsating ambient with touches of sad synth-pop melodies and some dub echoes. There’s light arpeggios, but there’s lots of room for space and reflection. “The Hour Appointed” has rushing water, bird chirps, and bell-like tones. “Fields of Neptune” has a nice synth sequence which drifts in along with nocturnal mist and fog. “Gravity Core” is dub techno with the beats suspended so all that’s left is the echoes into the void (plus some suspenseful pads creeping in during key moments). “Inner Guidance” is the only track to feature voices, and they’re heavily shrouded in echo, resembling the advice of spirits. Between Interval’s style is somewhat minimalist, but the intention is for the imagination to color in the empty space.

Ron Zakrin: One In A Million LP (Equal Recordings, 2017)

April 19, 2017 at 10:43 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Ron Zakrin: One In A Million LP

Detroit-based painter and musician Ron Zakrin used to record electro-punk as Goudron, with releases on ADULT.’s Ersatz Audio and Ectomorph’s Interdimentional Transmissions. This is his first LP under his own name, and it’s closer to stripped-down electro-techno, with brittle, paranoid melodies in the Dopplereffekt/Aux 88 mode, but there’s still new wave/synth-pop elements to it. “Hells Androids” is bouncy and playful, but “Guilty Pleasures” is more of an even tempo and has some guitar-like distortion and a swooping bassline. “Streetwise” injects some 8-bit textures into its suspenseful electro-funk. “Haste to Hastings” and “Midnight Hustle (D Major)” are cosmic disco homages, and “One in a Million” is a chipper new wave tune with a playful Casio-sounding outro. Available from Bandcamp.

Ian Ginsing: Cosmetic Blemish 12″ EP (Equal Recordings, 2016)

April 19, 2017 at 10:08 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Ian Ginsing: Cosmetic Blemish 12″ EP

Solid, steady tech-house from a former Detroiter now living in Portland, and also known as Jerry Abstract. Solid, playful tracks with a snap and a crunch to them. Pretty minimal and groove-based, for the most part. “Wet Yeti” is as slyly cheeky as its title; “Womance” is a bit darker and more pensive, and has lots of cool snips and glitches. “Pattaya Shuffle” is a bit of a nervous rattler, with stammering beats and some weird cartoonish samples poking through near the end. “Seeping Into Film” has an almost dubstep/garage-ish bounce to it, and a filtered vocal sample that reminds me of Hardrive’s “Deep Inside” for some reason (but buried way deep inside). Available on Bandcamp, but “Wet Yeti” only appears on the 12″.

Uton/The Gonk with a Luminous Nose/Roped Off/Sheaf & Froggatt: split tape (Shack in the Barley Productions, 2016)

Uton/The Gonk with a Luminous Nose/Roped Off/Sheaf & Froggatt: split tape

Yet another tape from a while ago that I’m just catching up on. This one starts off with a 20-minute suite from Digitalis alumni Uton. It evokes a lot of the same haunted forest qualities as many of the other Finnish experimental underground artists. It feels like it’s being played by animals under the light of neon stars, then it takes the form of psychoactive bubbles in a luminous pool, then it’s a shortwave radio transmission. The Gonk with a Luminous Nose (more commonly known as The Golden Gonk) follows suit with overdriven hypnotic fuzz. Less prone to shapeshifting or changing form than Uton, he’s more likely to venture hard down one direction, until the location itself morphs into something else. On the tape’s second side, Hausu Mountaineers Roped Off start with throbbing minimalist synths, but then their second track is a noisier and more expansive (but still hypnotic and minimalist in some way) journey through an asteroid belt. Sheaf & Froggatt are the most mysterious act on this tape, and their contributions are titled “Noises Made by Cacti Growing Inside an Alien Hothouse” and “A Ram Sang Under Water”. Those only sound like part of what’s going on, though, but it’s really hard to describe what else is happening. The pieces are much more collage-y and dream-like than the rest of the tape, filled with distant voices and telekinesis and transparency and sudden, alarming shifts. The whole tape is a really good mix of brain-marinating confusion.

Exael: Miche tape (Lillerne Tapes, 2016)

April 2, 2017 at 7:38 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Exael: Miche tape

It starts deep, then it gets deeper. The type of techno that belongs on a tape, not a record. But much of it doesn’t have beats. The drone pieces sound like swimming in three or four rivers at once. Very disorienting, but something still seems to be consistently pulling you along. Evil robot cats purring. Creaking droids spying me from the ceiling. Disappearing into a mirror. Then there’s deconstructed beats flittering away, and bass grinding away in circles. I have a headache right now and I don’t feel like forcing more thoughts out of my head but this is a seriously incredible tape. Still available at Bandcamp.
