Tunnel Speeches – Self Titled

Intriguing electro-acoustic experiments from avant-garde outfit Tunnel Speeches.

This debut collaboration is a very interesting listen – weaving it’s way between lofi beats, plunderphonic ambience and post-rock.

The interaction between Drums and Guitar are molded together with the help of strangely satisfying samples and atmospherics. Dissonant at times, in the best way possible.

Gritty choppy percussion sits as the foundation for these tracks – stretched over 11 improvisational jams – Tunnel Speeches are not shy with mixing styles together with quite a pleasing outcome. Avant jazz collides with dark ambient and lo-fi hip hop.

Overall it’s a great listen that’s had me coming back again and again – lucky for us it’s available on Cassette tape for now! Snag it or the digital version from the official Bandcamp page today.

Construct, by Bios Contract

Unique Avant-Garde electronics from Indian artist Bio Contrast. Construct is a thoughtful exploratory EP consisting of 3 tracks, gliding from static deconstructions into blissful atmospherics and back again. Though altogether less than 10 minutes long – the sonic expanse is astounding – with the concept truly fleshing out by reaching the 3rd track. It’s textural, emotional, and interesting – one of the more rewarding shortform experimental listens I have had the pleasure to enjoy recently. The project is streaming on all platforms as well as for sale over at bandcamp, so show some support! I am looking forward to digging into this artists back catalog, as this was my first exposure to their creations…..

Drained EP, by Novie

a3833615919_10

I recently stumbled upon this release while poking through strange sounds on Soundcloud. Upon discovering I was immediately taken by the unique and bold style presented on this record. Polish producer Novie creates incredibly unique compositions – a distinct take on experimental modern-classical – utilizing a huge palette of sounds and textures. Several occasions I was reminded of a much mellower BYZ, which was some of my favorite avant-experimental sounds of last year.

The 4-tracks are now available via Bandcamp for Free Download! I highly recommend this one to mix up your listening routine, inject some weird concepts and satisfying sounds into your day and click play!!

Iniciação by Nacional Erudita

a2042467000_10

Deliciously lush and atmospheric new noise from Brazilian artist Nacional Erudita, brought to us by Infinite Sync Studios.

This Side A/Side B of sorts is warm and inviting. Tape sounds being utilized heavily to the point I felt as if I were in a duplication or processing facility – and I loved it. The therapeutic nature of the fuzzy analogue drones does well to build an atmosphere in less than 20 minutes of sonic storytelling. Ominous howls and scraping percussion dominate the first track, like some strange ceremony being dragged-along a few rooms down the hall. Track two is pure dense tape magic, packed with complex and satisfying subtleties.

Available digital only it seems! Head over to the bandcamp page to support! 🌿

Indigenous Mix 2, by SAD MAN

a3061976218_10

After seriously enjoying SAD MANs release last month – UNTITLED ALBUM – I was very much looking forward to this smaller drop that was scheduled on his bandcamp to release June 3rd. What we’ve received is a beautiful 9-track “remix” project in which SAD MAN dives back into some select songs from his latest LP, revisiting the themes to provide entirely new interpretations!

As with his previous release, the songs dwell in the realm of true sonic exploration – where I felt his work was of a deconstructed nature, the vibe is even more potent on this latest project. The sounds more than ever appear to have been sliced out of the air, jumbled around on the floor, and crafted back together into some kind of mosaic masterpiece.

Lots of very satisfying sounds in here as well. I have found myself being lulled into a state of trust and relaxation, with wooden percussion rolling around me and buzzing squelching synths flying past my ears. This time around the Jazz vibes are bigger too – especially with tracks like “Ceep” which features some tender piano noodlings, or “Dog” which feels like an experimental open jazz session led by a slick pocket drummer on the kit.

Another highly recommended listen – digital edition is currently available for download via the artists Bandcamp page and is Pay what you Want! So don’t wait and grab yours today…

Untitled Album, by Sad Man

a0883135841_10

Experimental Electronic + Jazz musician SAD MAN presents us with an epic new release UNTITLED ALBUM, which dropped back at the beginning of May. This beefy 21 track epic is a true experiment in abstract electronics, with a heavy lean towards resonant glitches and deconstructed club sounds.

At times UNTITLED ALBUM steers into quite adventurous territories, adopting flavors from world music, IDM, glitch hop and more to create his own unique electronic flavor. The songs themselves are hearty meals, rarely dipping below 3 minutes in length, leaving plenty of time to explore sonic ideas and freely wander the landscape of sound.

SAD MAN music seems to lean heavily towards dissonant experimentation, with rhythms propelling the vibe forward at a steady tempo. Though the sounds used may not be stranger to club atmosphere, it is the way all the sounds are broken down – stripped to their essence, and repurposed in a way to tell an entirely different story. Grooves appear as quickly as they disappear – percussion being somewhat nebulous, sometimes held by some boom bap drums, other times being completely phased into crushed synths and chopped waveforms. A track can fly from footwork madness to lofi house vibes in a matter of moments, and yet it all works quite well, with SAD MAN never losing footing within each track.

On the whole, UNTITLED ALBUM is a damn good work of art. It’s a rewarding listen, the kind you enjoy time and time again, with and without headphones – at home, in the car, etc. Take it with you in life and see how it morphs the landscape around you – a premium vibe augmentation.

Really strong recommendation on this one – the best word I can use to describe the complete project is Therapeutic. Something about the nature of the sounds, the mystery of where each track leads, it all put me very much at ease. Even the sounds themselves – I often found myself feeling quite entranced, as if my mind was being massaged through the airwaves. Perhaps you will have the same experience, and I encourage you to give it a shot!

The album is available to stream and download via the artists Bandcamp page – as well as a Compact Disc edition (which I will likely pick up in the near future!). SAD MAN has a healthy discography on his bandcamp page too, and with a remix-album set to release tomorrow, anyone who enjoys ought to be excited…

Merge, by Blumt

a2085532750_10

This small project was sent my way a few months ago – a 3 track EP of harsh noise from German producer Blumt. A beautifully dark debut, self released via the artists bandcamp page. Blumt uses a palette of deep ambience and shattering dissonance to paint his work – making a fitting soundtrack for an old horror film. The project finishes massively with what I consider to be a pretty damn amazing track, “Circle Bit” – pure energy packed IDM that leaves you wanting more.

I will be eagerly waiting to hear more from this producer – with Merge dropping back in January, maybe we will get lucky before the years end…

OSEDAX LP, by MOISTBVRP

a4170456653_10

Have really been enjoying this release from Seattle based experimental project MOISTBVRP (excellent name I must say) – OSEDAX LP. A lush 15-track project with massive energy seeming to tear its way through the synthesizers. Fragmented dissonance from a post-apocalyptic FM station, our madman DJs mash together feelings of darkness, darkwave, drone, noise, some witch housey stuff, all folding together with urgency.

Highly recommended listen if you’re looking for something dense and atmospheric yet still packed with energy and rhythm…
