PASTEL GHOST // ABYSS

abyss pastel ghost

This is some of that dreamwave that I heard some kids from Northern California talking about just the other day. This is rather synthy and at the same time cute and I am stoked that Pastel Ghost is going almost shoe-gaze in their dreamy journeys. When the keys kick in I am in heaven or is it hell? It just brings the ambient into something more singer/songwriter which makes for a better trip. I am feeling this record a lot. Feeling it on my player for some time to come.

Trust // Slug

As to be expected pretty much anything TRST has released has instantly become gold. This is just one more example of how this artist is unstoppable and how sweet and perfected his sound has become. I am not going to piss all over this though with words.

Faded Lights

fdd lights

Warren, Michigan or Hell on earth as I like to call it has been bringing some darkened magic big time to my attention as of late. Faded Lights or FDD LIGHTS as they sometimes go by have delivered digital experimental odysseys that are mind expanding. Just came back from a trip and these guys were all that I listened to. My mind has been expanded into the minor key. It is now your turn to alter yours.

Unicorn Domination // RMXD

Remixed Unicorn Domination

Unicorn Domination was instantly a classic when I first locked my ears on their debut Drala which catapulted them to the top albums of 2014. The band is back with a remix album enlisting the talent of several Portland producers (Obsidian Mirrors, Moniker, Zak Plum, SHK THT, Nicky Mason, Pipedream, Kid Kross) in addition to other national and international producers (Wasabi Bytes – Bangkok, Dee.f – Hanoi). The studio mastery is coming through in large amounts throughout. The polish is perfect, the luster even more perfect as studio magic is all over this gorgeous album. Each producer has really made each of these tracks their own while keeping Unicorn Dom’s shit intact. I almost like all of these tracks equally. These collaboration projects are either feast or famine for me. RMXD is certainly a fancy feast. Download this shit!

Tangled Memories // Ancient Sorrows

tangled memories

Some major low key-ness going on here from Tangled Memories a project by avant-garde musician Garett Pierre of Mid-Michigan. Or shall I say minor because that is the key that this is in. Dark ambient and atmospheric vibes coming through. Or if you prefer we’ll call it a paradisaical consolidation of Romantic-Gothic/Moody Witch House with ghostly-hazy Trip Hop, and Dark-Ambient Electronic effervesces. I know you bitches like labels, right?

†LOΛΣΓS† // SCARS

†LOΛΣΓS†

Some ghost vibe elements with a Crim3s-esque feel to it coming to you from San Antonio, Texas. The bedroom witch comes at you in full force with this one. It all ends in sweet symphony on the finale “Losing You” which features the likes of DVЯK SE▲ who puts the levels into the red. All for your listening pleasure. Fucking poetic. Now I’m Blue.

Schonwald // Dream For The Fall

SCHONWALD

I like the beats on “Neon” and the way it kind of loops in a wondrous stance delirious of how pleasurable it is to the ears of the listener. It just kind of does its own thing but works very well for the music. This is one of my favorite artists. Schonwald just does not put out dull music. Everything is just where it needs to be which is a little beyond perfection. Schonwald’s music is also delivered in unconventional release formats where I can’t tell what is an album and what is a single. One record over there another track over there – that’s the modern era for you. I love the unconventional approach though and I am not complaining. However, “Dream for the Fall” was put out by Anywave and it is a pretty solid cohesive record. The tracks are leaking in over the cloud. Check it out!

Molly Nilsson // H.O.P.E.

molly nillson

Molly Nilsson always strikes a somber chord with me. Are you lonesome tonight? So asks the song. Even her upbeat songs have a sad meaning behind them. You see I know where she is coming from and if you are going to ever write a sad song you ought to as well.

Lemniscata // Untitled

lemniscata

This album showcases why having a vocalist can help take your experimental instrumental project to new heights where it can be taken seriously by the broader listening community. Fans of music are just hardwired to want to hear vocal instrumentation in play. This one comes via Teapression Waves, where the Russian invasion of this dark sound continues. I think you are going to enjoy this one my insatiable one.
