The Netherlands

Earlier in December I was visiting Netherlands for the first time and was on the sea for the first time in my life. I didn't bring any digital cameras with me for this trip, although, just as always, I had my Praktica L2 with me so I bring some photos to share.

Two People In A Room - Endless Bummer


Two People In A Room - Endless Bummer


"Two People In A Room is the project of Berlin based duo Michelle and Rene, the latter also known as the ambient solo artist Pillowdiver. Formed in 2009, Two People In A Room create their music using guitar which is then manipulated extensively through the use of effects pedals and signal processing. But one of the things that separate them from others is that it's not solely feedback and drone as melodic elements get thread into the music's dense fabric."

It was also released in a severely limited quantity of just ten hand-made editions. New Music From The Delta Quadrant sees the album re-released as a larger edition with the tracks having all been reworked by the Ithaca Trio and remastered by Lawrence English.

Established in 2009, The Colossal Ithaca Trio is the project of Oliver Thurley, a composer based in Leeds, UK.

Koen Daigaku ‎– Phosphorescence/Wind Has Risen

Koen Daigaku.

Couldn't find lot of information about this artist, only clue i have he from Japan somewhere and i don't even sure about it.

After many listens thru Phosphorescence i couldn't wait for more and was really excited after found out about new postcard of him on Twisted Tree Line, so i immediately pres order button and wait for arrive.

Now (few mouths later), i thinks is better to tell you about both release in one review. The reason of that is because i expect and wait from a postcard pretty much the same i heard from hes music before and i am fine with that.

Leastupperbound - domestic tapes Vol. II


Leastupperbound - domestic tapes Vol. II

This album is one of the things that bring me back from my "Winter depression" for now i listened this over fifteen times at least.
Domestic tapes Vol. II is a seven tracks of calmness and reasoning. Music is not pressure and keep free space for a reasoning and thinking, this what i so much loved in this one. And the cover perfectly displays the mood of the music for me.
