VEDAS // Ruin

vedas

They say music is our most personal expression of feeling. Singer Alex Lee’s soaring high falsetto compliment Monborne’s distinct drumming throughout the tranquil and ambient songs displayed here. VEDAS’ debut EP, Exhume, will be released on April 15th.

Tropic Chambers // Nightbreak EP

tropic chambers

This one comes from an ex-pat living in Japan that goes by the name of Jeremy Jacobson. I always dig the Western art form when transplanted in the culture capital of innovation, Japan. This is some of that experimental electronic, which if you have been following the blog lately, you may have noticed I have been posting a lot of. That’s where I am at. Come join me and experience the experimental.

CurseWords // Nature’s First Green is Gold

cursewords

Out of all the shit I had to listen to this weekend, this release by Cursewords made it all worthwhile. These are some mellow ambient productions produced enough to make it palatable by outsiders. You might even be tempted to call this soundtrack music. Any type of music can be a soundtrack though in the right context. This is a whole unit though. It needs to be listened to from start to finish to fully benefit from what it offers.

The St Louis fellow behind Cursewords is working on another release for this summer entitled “Lupine” with a more darker ambient electronic feel to it. Look forward to the next release very much.

Cursewords back catalog featured on the cloud digs deep into witch house stylings like on the track Wintermute. There is so much to be discovered if you are feeling retrospective.

Marie Davidson // Perte d’identité

marie davidson

It has been a gradual battle up a slippery slope of two steps forward 3 steps back. Every now and then I get a glimmer of hope. Sometime I hope to make it there.

MATER SUSPIRIA VISION // The Torture Chamber Of Paganini (BLACK EGG REMIX)

mater suspiria

This remix made my morning especially blackened. This is some really dark ambient from one of the greats being remixed by Black Egg. This is some of the first shit I have heard from Black Egg, but I like what I hear so far. If they are mixing shit this good, then I can imagine that their own offerings are going to be just as tasty.

Kissy Girls // Be Patient

Be Patient

I have been following the trippy-hop offerings of Kissy Girls since they caught my attention with Home Safely. The sky is the limit given their obvious talents which are perfected arrangements and vocal abilities of a higher pedigree. You could even enjoy some of their music with your elders, because there is some adult contemporary crossover here that I am not ashamed to admit I likey because I find this approach somewhat appealing when the mood strikes me. I do have an urge for them to explore more darker edgy offerings with a hint of hard hittingness. I think if they were offering this while keeping faithful to their musical abilities, then we could witness a top artist transform in 2014 to the Top of the Goth. With that said, sometimes my advice might be ill-received and take an artist down a road that they are not prepared to journey down. I say this from the perspective of a fan looking at the artist from afar and looking forward to future releases.

Casey J. Cooper // And I Will Rise

casey cooper ambient

This is some of that pretty cinematic ambient music that I have been aiming to listen to more of but never get to because I never seem to know where my happy place is. Not to say that this is not dark. Some of the darkest shit comes packaged up as mild and not too overbearing which I have to agree is my preference on occasion. This one kind of ended up on my lap – so I applaud the artist for getting my attention. I haven’t been able to move much as of lately, so any help is appreciated. There are so many peaks and valleys on this “And I Will Rise” EP and the instrumentation is accomplished and the variety is something you don’t get much of these days. It is compositional and although I don’t like to use this word so often “beautiful”.

Daniel Klag // Twin Labyrinths

twin labyrinths

Twin Labyrinths, an album inspired by a short story by Borges (1939). Daniel Klag constructs a maze of ambient sounds that some would even be weary of entering, but upon commitment this is a pleasantry of sound that cascades its relaxation properties upon your tired soul. Enjoy my musical travelers.

Old Manual // リング

old manual

This is a worldly sound collage production of sorts that goes by the name of Old Manual via Portugal. I don’t get to do much travel outside of my imagination so its nice when artists bring their worldliness to a zero dollar budget fellow such as myself. I am really digging the unorthodox selection of synths on this one. I like the accented beats, puts my headache to sleep. You see these producers types when they are not producing bullshit pop music for their friends, they go off on these musical odysseys which are essential for discovering new techniques and pondering new directions. I myself like to be right next to them discovering new territory and breaking new ground. Check this shit out! I will also file this in the Rabbit Hole.

▲NDRΛS // Invisible

andras invisible

Some genius samples on this new one entitled Invisible (not to be confused with Invincible — a previous incarnation) from one of my favorite Grave Wave Producers of all time ▲NDRΛS. There is so much cinematic beauty via the instrumentation on Invisble that it feels like a machine gun of synths being shot at you while you stand on the firing line. ▲NDRΛS is taking his craft to higher levels with an almost seamless offering from front to end which makes me likey a lot.
