The Slanted City ‘Further’ Reviewed at Here Comes The Flood

Chloe March ‘To a Place’ Reviewed at Fresh on the Net

“This song was a nice juxtaposition against the previous on the list. In another world we are whipped off by the winds to a new environment and already charmed by its surroundings. I felt overwhelmed by the imagery, such was its power. Like finding a fascinating...

Liminal Drifter “Connected” Reviewed at A Closer Listen

Rewilding ‘Home Shore Highlights’ Reviewed at Fingertips

The oddly inviting instrumental “Home Shore Highlights” intermingles the organic and the electronic with idiosyncratic aplomb. Listen, for instance, to how the synthesizer takes the lead at some moments, a homely glockenspiel at others. The overall effect is a singular type of unsophisticated sophistication—it feels both homespun and skillfully assembled. On the one hand, the song is little more than a variety of recurring, related melodies on top of an unhurried tropical beat; on the other hand, things feel ongoingly off-kilter and endearing. As different sounds take turns in the spotlight, one consistent underlying element is the hands-on percussion, mixed with a bashy spaciousness that adds three-dimensionality to the aural landscape.

Markus Mehr “Brief Conversations” Reviewed at ambientblog

“Don’t expect spoken ‘conversations’ on this album: these tracks are reflections of the ‘conversations’ German experimental artist Markus Mehr had exploring different rooms. “Rooms communicate with us, we can listen to them”. For the inexperienced listener, some...
