Derek Hunter the Chaos Riddler // Major Arcana

chaos riddler derek

The Chaos Riddler is back and he riddles us with another beautiful concept album. The 22 tracks represent each of the 22 Major Arcana (Trump) cards in Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot deck. The album is entirely instrumental, with Derek’s voice used instrumentally with a distorted effect. This piece of art here is his most ambitious yet. Get over to the camp for bands and download this shit!

Kzakkttixx // Dark Ambient

dark ambient

Just in case you don’t know what kind of music Kzakkttixx makes, the artist spelled it out for you on this release. This is border-lining on drone. The sound-waves have been slowed down to a running in water pace. Works perfectly for when you want to have a low productivity day. This album will not do you any favors in the short run, it is intended for long distant runners.

LUCIANBLOMKAMP // Post-Nature

Post-Nature

Post-Nature is LUCIANBLOMKAMP’s debut album released through Yes Please / Remote Control. It has that almost ambient acid jazz thing going on throughout. Often refer to this as journey music. This is very palatable.

Zex Model // Rokk

zex model

This new one by Zex Model is from the forthcoming split-release with Statiqbloom coming out on Desire Records. Going to be released in the end of October or early November or what I like to call the “Devil’s Season”.

The Skinny Puppy influence is apparent, but I might even have to say that Zex trumped Puppy on the experimentalism gage that fiddles with a classic industrial atmosphere taking the re-emergence of the genre to new speeds. I would hope that Skinny Puppy would have Zex Model produce some of their forthcoming material. This is a damn good example of how its done right now in the now.

Signs // Bassface EP

SIGNS

This is a pretty much perfect offering via Mischa Glitter of Signs. So many artists stretch themselves to make an LP where about half the songs are phoned in, but Signs focuses like a laser and delivers on 7 nearly perfect anthems. This is one of my favorites so far this year. Much attention is paid to detail here which makes this very easy to listen to over and over. Not a surprise though from one of my favorite artists where each release has been a steady improvement from a beginning born out of excellence.

Starry Eyes Soundtrack

kissing tracy

The thin line between dark cinematic beauty and that provided by the bedroom ambient artist is disappearing with releases like this. Heard the music, now I can’t wait to see the film.

Akasha Experience // Into The Web

akasha

Trust me, it’s paradise. This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven’t tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It’s probably worth it.

Make Haste // Unrest

make haste

Make Haste is the synthpop project of Toronto resident TK Dallman. There is a certain amount of intenseness brought in this dance-friendly album “Unrest”. I am liking the track “Capable”. These cohesive albums always get my attention because of the amount of work required to pull the whole thing off. I see albums like many see a thesis. It questions what was before and attempts to bring a different perspective.
