Todd Tobias “Tristes Tropiques” Reviewed at SpaceRockMountain

Todd Tobias isn’t new to SRM, I have very fond memories of listening to his Calvino-inspired album, Impossible Cities. Therefore, I entered listening to this album with some rather high expectations, which I am glad to report were not dashed in the slightest. The long, winding songs are all sublimely amorphous soundscapes. It is astounding how much weight is packed into every one of them despite their relatively sparse composition. It causes a transformative affect to occur in the diligent listener, altering mundane happenings into something absolutely poetic. For my second listen I sat on my balcony on a cloudy morning, watching birds peck around for food. With the help of Tobias’s music, it was pretty damn epic.

Medard Fischer “Four Songs for the City of New York” Reviewed at Hypnagogue

Whichever point in day you choose to listen to Medard Fischer’s Four Songs for the City of New York will simply be the most beautiful 18 minutes of your day. Moving neo-classical tinted with the soft light of ambient, these are graceful and gorgeous comments that, though brief, come through with strong, human resonance.

The concert was recorded in November 2012 as part of the festival Time Zones Bari (Italy) that will have its 30th anniversary this year.

“Long Range Transmissions” Reviewed at Tome To The Weather Machine

“I am an unabashed Hidden Shoal fan. The Australian label has been pumping out releases of lush, cinematic aspirations of ambient and neo-classical artists for a better part of it’s existence that, at times, is overcome by its eclectic output ranging from...

Kramies “forêts antiques” Reviewed at Luna Kafe

Dutch-American Kramies Windt has presented his romantic, big-and-open-hearted pop songs through a line of fine EPs: The European (2011); The Wooden Heart (2013, promoted by its title track The Wooden Heart); and the splendid The Folklore Sessions (2014). This spring, Kramies launched a brand new single, The Fate That Never Favored Us (produced by Jason Lytle) before he went on tour in France and recorded this live EP called Forêts Antiques.

Markus Mehr “In the Palm of Your Hand” Reviewed at Luna Kafe

The musical world of Markus Mehr is really a place to go explore. I’ve been amazed and chilled by Mehr’s music on several occasions, with albums such as On (2012), Off (2013), and Binary Rooms (2014). This time around some other artists explore Mehr’s music, or song, as they have remixed his track “In The Palm of your Hand” (from his last album, last year’s Binary Rooms).
