Scissors and Sellotape - For The Tired And Ill At Ease

Scissors and Sellotape - For The Tired And Ill At Ease

"A young lonely and abandoned man clamming on big cobbles surrounding completely dead ocean. He  know what he get nothing from this, but he still about clamming when stones become bigger and bigger..."

Scissors And Sellotape is the latest alias of john mccaffrey, aka Part Timer, whose work has previously appeared on Moteer, Mobeer, Flau labels.

This album is something very special for me. After the first listening i want to hide this treasure from world and be the one who can look into deep bending of this music. Thats sort of power it have!

This is charming tangle of piano, string, crumb of electronics and sometimes bass embedding with around calm soundscapes.

Sometimes i have a thought what this music has a own fluorescence which is not visible for human eye, but always favorable for ours souls.

Very difficult to describe this music, easier to talk about the taste of very old wine found at the bottom of a deep lake - you just need to hear this by yourself!

It will be a limited edition 180 gm virgin vinyl run with black inner sleeves that includes in the package a letter pressed CD of the music, 16 page photographic booklet, A2 poster that folds down and wraps around the letter press CD, 12 x 12 limited edition bespoke print on heavyweight card along with other quirky little inserts. It will all then be wrapped up in soft black tissue.

Robert Haigh - Notes And Crossings

Do you ever feel your memories? Memories thats does not exist? It's like deja vu. Or maybe is just a something you dream a several times but you always forget this on morning, but one time you wake up and  remember it feverishly like you never forget about it... Some times music can stir this memories and you feel something you can't explain.

Cinchel - Ritual Habitat

Cinchel - Ritual Habitat

Cinchel is a Jason Shanley, artist from chicago, United States.

Ritual Habitat is a three tracks postcard.

His music is mostly electronic with using experimental technique playing on electro guitar like bowed and etc.

The first track is kinda space and deep with sort of machine sounds and far away sound guitar.

The second track in the quickening pace guitar more loaded and a lots of bowed strings sounds.

The track number three is most interesting to me because i think artist made a great job to reproduce the sound of the night in electronic form. Best thing is to listen to this track on your player at night in the woods, but not loudly, but to be able to hear the sound of self steps. Very dark and creepy track.

release at feed back loop label August 2011

Kettel - Volleyed Iron

Kettel - Volleyed Iron

I listen this album when i was in road at 5AM and it's better for this moment. I listen and look in bus window on white from a hight fog field and smooth sun on horizon. the music is very good shows my mood point. My ming was a haze and still not wakeup enough.

Music made a beautiful gray world around me. But this is not the gray that is depressed, it's the gray that makes the work spirit and not the body. 

Music flows on a dream river from unhurried piano play to in anxiety dreams with shadows and voices. Deeper and deeper into a mystic state and slowly come back and wakeup by telephone ringing.

Overall, a very inspiring and melancholy album.
released on u-cover in 2004

Johnny Ripper - Soundtrack for a film that doesn't exist

Johnny Ripper - Soundtrack for a film that doesn't exist

Johnny Ripper is a young compositor from France.

Soundtrack for a film that doesn't exist is a very big album. A 31 track + 3 bonus tracks.

The style of his music easy to call a electro-acoustic, piano ambient.

Almost all tracks on album is a teany piano miniatures with using backwards effects and field records. This tracks are just charming and calming. 

But second style of album is another story. I guess is may called a  jazz trip-hop or something similar to this.
Well i guess every person find some for you self from this album. Very fine and good-looking album.

Inner Place - Substratum (2011)

 Inner Place - Substratum

By now it's harder and harder to find a classic ambient, well maybe only in ethnics shops.

“Inner Place” Is the third music project of IX which has founded in the year 2011, “ Inner Place ” is ambient project, after IX’s work to projects ( Alphaxone, Spuntic, Altitude-X, Monolith Cycle ) .
“Inner Place” is an (ambient) music style. “ Substratum ” is the first album of “ Inner Place ” in 2011 which has composed and produced by IX.

This Project interested me even before release because im never listen net-label scene music from Iran, by this token i never hear any music from Iran until now.

Twelve fine electronics ambient tracks made me breathe deeply. Some time music is dramatical and sometimes is lovely.

Very deep underwater, very deep in space, very deep in soul.

Inner Place - Substratum released at SUBWISE net-label and available for free.

If you miss a good canonical ambient - this is for you.

Andrea Ferraris/Matteo Uggeri with Mujika Easel & Andrea Serrapiglio - Autumn is coming, we're all in slow motion

Andrea Ferraris/Matteo Uggeri with Mujika Easel & Andrea Serrapiglio - Autumn is coming, we're all in slow motion

Prologue:"...If someone ask me for describe this album by one word, that probably be a "fruitfulness"...

Imagine a picture as you go through hot and barren desert, and you're almost falling, exhausted by thirst and fatigue. But suddenly in front of you there is a wonderful and magical oasis which is like a cloud, where many fountains shed their water on the moss-covered with stone statues and platforms. There are a lot of people light up with happiness and under the same moment they were no longer visible, and only the memories that you see if you're right there.

Whole album will with perfect quality field records, and artist made a great job making it an indispensable part of the music because its mixing with melody just wonderful.
Instruments such as piano, acoustic guitar, accordion, cello, bells, ghost vocals is like a series of hourglass, which gradually spread in their grains melody and effects each other we have "Autumn Is Coming, We're All In Slowmotion".

Album Released October 2010 at Hibernate Records with CD edition of 200, packaged in a lovely digipak made in lomography style.

Talvihorros - Descent Into Delta

Talvihorros - Descent Into Delta

Talvihorros is a one man project based in London by Ben Chatwin.

I very surprised what never discovered Ben's music before. And i already jealousy persons who been on the live show.

Descent Into Delta is a 5 track album.

Music enchants me with its shimmering melodies of post rock into lovely melodies and deep drones and then back to melodies and some sound i can't describe. 

Working with analog recording devices of experimental and innovative guitar techniques, makes music something that influences positively on my mind. It is as if the music has waves that I only understand on an emotional level, but i can not understand this by my logic. And this abundance of music creates a mind for the lost memories and non-existent places that you yourself invented so long ago ...

Anyway, I'm sure this album will be a great event of this summer. Five stars!

Album Descent Into Delta coming up on Hibernate Records in august and be released on both vinyl and CD.

Strangelet - Peccant

Strangelet - Peccant

Strangelet also known as Filip Skubal from Brno, Czech republic.

Peccant is a four track ep released 2011 at Few Quiet People.

I wont to called this music a space drones, it's has a high-frequency waves and space pads but it to worm sound to me a "space" for me. His music creates a narrow space, which envelops you as you listen. One gets the feeling that the sound is recorded on a very old of experimental devices, electronics when in its infancy and was unusual. But is not only pads and drones, i definitely hear king a strings, bells and bowed guitar. 


Shaula - Oneiroi

Shaula - Oneiroi

Shaula is a artist from Japan.
Sinse  2009 shaula whrite a few great album like Haze Non_rem_sleeps And Yona.

This albums is still somethere in top of my favorites. Shaula's music is so personal because it's really unusual sound but very beautiful at the same time. When you listen she's music all weather become a melancholic and all movement going around you begin to be slow mo.

The reason i review today single Oneiroi is because this the one Shaula release you can download totaly for free or if you want a flac you need to pay only 0.50 GBP.

Its very difficult to go into details of song or specific sound. I give you recomendation now you will made a your point of that.

Shaula - Oneiroi released 23 July 2010 on Audio Gourmet Netlabel

Good Weather For An Airstrike - A Summer (review)

Good Weather For An Airstrike - A Summer 

Good Weather For An Airstrike is a Tom Honey artist from Winchester, UK

   This is not my first meeting with gwfa, if you look at my few first reviews you will find my thought for gwfa ep called "A Winter".
   The first thought came on my mind what "summer" is a artistic and meaningful extension of the "whinter".

    One of the interesting features of the album is a titles for a song, it's looks random but is so much more.

    Make sure you listening in order because every song crossing with long transition.

    The intro of the album track "Solid Surroundings Feel Empty" starts with overload guitar (i guess) drones and others one half continuing with lovely chill guitar.
27610 welcome as with very soft and growing moby style strings, and featuring clatching noises like very shaggy vinyl, this noises going through next song called "Clouds Forming In The Lay By" it's very minimalistic with reverse guitar on forward, at the end of the track starting speeches from next theme called "The Beginning Of The Rest Of Our Lives (Revisited)" its definitely trip hop track with nice beat and electro piano chords.
    The middle of the album "Twisted Knuckles" its like short piano intermission for album.
    Second part of album starts with lovely and emotional drone track witch ended by sound of crickets. "The Beginning Of The Rest Of Our Lives (Reprise with Inachus)" is a like mixing drones and trip hop....
    Drone "Light Shines Through The Cracked Window" like prelude for a longest track on album "The Sun Sets Over Us, And We Are Happy"
    Outro track "The Method Was Slow And Probably Dangerous" is good to be Outro sound for me like a picture of end of the gig, when artists standing with guitar and lights it's slowly off...

Offthesky - The Beautiful Nowhere (pre-out review)

 Offthesky: The Beautiful Nowhere

Originally from Kentucky, Offthesky is Jason Corder who currently resides in Denver.

The Beautiful Nowhere is a ten lovely electro-acoustic tracks album.
Leisurely guitar waves with voice play give a clear picture of mood of album. This music in a strange way clean my mind of superfluous thoughts and mentally takes away from the city to better places.
The abundance of instruments, plus high-quality recording and elements of experimentalism - turns out an amazing album. Guess is better listen it on old vinyl player in you country house.

Offthesky - The Beautiful Nowhere coming up on vinyl and CDs in jule at Hibernate Records.

Leaves among ruins - Meera/Ceallagh I (review)

leaves among ruins - Meera/Ceallagh I

Leaves among ruins artist and Sheevra Records admistrator from Ireland.

This is second self-release ep and second release i reviewed.
Meera/Ceallagh serves as inspiration for me during the last week. Disturbing guitar riffs and emotional drum beats with noises and part of speeches sound like soundtrack for "open-eyes" documentary like "Zeitgeist". Very motivational music. Three tracks very good numbered and hole ep going like parts of short film: first intro, then story, and then is titles.

Ex-Confusion - Small Reality (Review)

Ex-Confusion - Small Reality

Ex Confusion is Atsuhito Omori from Japan.

I've long been convinced whats Japanese ambient probably one of the best ambient on Earth.  

Small Reality is a five chapters ep.With deep and stretch guitar constituents and drones noises and pads. This music and others from this genre better listen in doing some think at the same time, crafting or drawing for example.

Released 15.06.11 at Rural Colours mp3 and Cd 3'' in rural colours subscription pack 12

Lyndsie Alguire - Suspended in light (review)

Lyndsie Alguire  - Suspended in light 

... I am very glad that I started writing these little Review for my blog because i starts followings netlabels more carefully. It is very difficult to realize that if I never listened to an album like this ... 

Lyndsie Alguire is a compositor from Montreal Canada.

Is so much soul and life in 14-x themes album "Suspended in light". Very thoughtful and beautiful album contains melancholic piano compositions and romantics electronics waves with parts of speeches and field-records. All together evokes a piece of my soul which is responsible for love. (10/10)

Quinn Walker and Danny Clay - Track A/Track B

leaves among ruins - What they left behind (2011)

leaves among ruins - What they left behind

Leaves among ruins is a project founded by (?) in Antarctica (i guess).

Thats two tracks demo ep i discovered fortuitously. (Yep, just search Antarctica tag in bandcamp). I listen it and it very impressed me.

The first track called Hamylton is a ambient track with good distortion guitar riffs sounds like pads with field records. Two minutes length theme sounding more like a intro for album.

Second track starts as ambient track with pads, noises and clean guitar, then come piano and beats and theme transformed into new-wave post-rock song.

Verdict: to good to be a demo =)

review: Woodworkings - Goodbye Homes 2011

Woodworkings - Goodbye Homes 2011

Woodworkings is a music project of Kyle Woodworth. Gordon Withers plays cello and Samuel Woodworth sings occasionally and plays other instruments. Project from San Diego, California, US.

Goodbye Homes 3-x track ep i guess will be one of the best exhibit in my collection. I'm surprised that I'm only now discovering their music, and i just can't think straight then i listen cello (thats why i chose cello to learning in music school). And whats can be better then combination of stings, unplugged guitar and ambient noises? Thanks Woodworkings for give me a happy weekend.

EP is pay what you want, CDs also available.

review: The Tumbled Sea - Melody Summer

The Tumbled Sea - Melody Summer

the tumbled sea is a one man project from Boston, Massachusetts, US 

For the all piano and modern classics lovers, if you don't listen this music before... well... Listen this! 

Melody Summer is a eleven track album released in 5 may 2009 at Futurerecordings. Hight quality piano and sting music in combination with organs and woodwinds  is really associated me with summer. Watching on the dawn and siting on lake coast with this music in your mp3 player is a best starts of the day.

Digital Album is a pay whats you wont. CD package also available.

review: Visión Armónica del Caos - Impaciencia

Visión Armónica del Caos - Impaciencia

Visión Armónica del Caos is a one man band from San Pedro, Costa Rica.

Impaciencia - such a lovely indie-rock and for free, i don't listen so good free indie-rock for long time. Release 7.01.2011 on noisnois netlabel. 

Three instrumental tracks combination with nice guitar, a little bit electronics, good drums beat and lovely bass tracks.

This is a first release from this artist i listen, but is a enough to make motivate me for listening another Visión Armónica del Caos releases. 


review: Gimu - Beluga

Gimu - Beluga

Gimu is a artist from Brazil. His earlier music career was based around a pop/electronic band called 'Terrorturbo', in which he was lead singer. As the members of the band went their separate ways over time, Gimu found himself left alone and unsure as to what would be his next move. 

Beluga is a two tracks debut ep released on Audio  Gourmet net label 14 December 2010.

Begula is very depressive and dramatical music, but is a great at the same time. I can't called it ambient because is so much different. Sound like a soundtrack for Arab landscapes. Is not a easy listening but is definitely deserves more attention and i can recommend fans of Sopor Aeternus, Saltillo and  Bersarin Quartett.

review Good Weather for an Airstrike - A Winter

Good Weather for an Airstrike - A Winter

Tom Honey's Good Weather For An Airstrike project began at the beginning of 2009 as a means to relieve the tinnitus issues he was suffering with at the time. His main goal was to create a collection of relaxing sounds that would help induce sleep.

A Winter EP is a three lullaby tracks ambient with post-classic sound. Is easy listening and very calm. Good to fill empty sound place in your home and must be in sleepy play list. 

 Released 14/01/11 at rural colours net label.


review Turnus - valedictions ep

Turnus - valedictions ep

Turnus is Nicolas Engelhardt, born 1977 in Dortmund/Germany.

Valedictions ep is a first and last Turnus release in 2005 on aerotone net label (and like i said before - not exist any more).
Headphones and chair - thats all you need to disappear in his music.
This music is really motivation to work as well as good just for walking or relaxing. Music very melodic and feature all you can imagined: pads, beats, vocal, guitar, even a field records. All six track from ep is my favorite, but best of the best for me is "valedictions II" combination of orchestra and a soft distortion guitar with nice beats.  

Turnus also featured one track on v/a compilation "soundtrack for your wedding" and make one remix on Bobby Baby track.

Electronica Unplugged review

Electronica Unplugged.

I don't completely remember how i open aerotone netlabel and there releases for you self, but remember exactly what feelings they aroused in me...

I am planed to review most of  aerotone releases, and at first i tell you about two beautiful various artists compilation called Electronica Unplugged.

 The first of it was released in 2006 and contains 10 tracks, Second was released in 2007.
 Electronica Unplugged is a best name for this compilation which only can be invented, because i can not accurately describe the genre differently than  electronica unplugged.

There is a few track that very inspired me:

Track "Nunns rd." by "Winterpark" us still my favorite song ever, and i can't explain why. I am just can listen it every time.

 "Talk about you" by "The Banjo Consorsium" very unusual mix of acoustic and electronics gives the whole a very pleasant sounding.

Subgenre as like "Drop" by "Akira Kosemura" i called piano miniatures for my self, usually contain minimal piano track and noise or field records.

 I love every songs made by "Bersarin Quartett" at the same i love every songs made by "Your Hand In Mine" it's just a great artists.

 "Now it´s over" my second favorite track made by "Roll Film", true combination of electronica and unplugged ;)

... and for other tracks i just don't have a good level of my english, so i just recommend listen it and make you own verdict.

Unfortunately after aerotone reboot, those release non exist on label any more. But you can't find on . Have a nice listening!

Here a another and more detail review:

brunk – winter ep review

brunk – winter ep

brunk is the solo-project of Bert Vanden Berghe, homerecording musician, born in 1977 and now living in Ghent, Belgium. Bert started with brunk in 1998; he just wanted to record and experiment with music in a free way, without stylistic restrictions or a predefined direction. 

The “winter ep” contains 4 tracks with a complete duration of 21 minutes, recorded in February 2008 and released at Resting Bell netlabel in 26.03.2009.

"Laika's view" is a seven min track going first on ep, consists of drones waves play and faint guitar and field records. All together fill a great  picture in my mind.

"surrounding" beautiful combination of acoustic and overdrive guitar.

"zon in februari" Very interesting track, if I did not know I would have thought that this live performance at cafe  or something

When i listen "nachtwandeling" the last track on ep, imagine western movie or shots lake man goes through desert.

verdict: winter ep is a good-looking release.
