  5. From Boomkat: Chicago-based trumpet player and electronic experimenter Justin Walter makes a lovely debut appearance on Kranky with his rarified first solo album. Sounding uncannily like the results of a secret hook up between Golden Retriever, Arve Henriksen and BoC, on 'Lullabies & Nightmares' Justin employs the Electronic Valve Instrument - a sort of hybrid trumpet and analogue synthesiser created in the '80s - to gorgeous effect, improvising frothy, fizzing loops of languid melody and scorched dissonance overdubbed with blunted drum patter and fractured electronics. It's all miles off Justin's previous work as session player for the likes of Iron & Wine, Nomo, or Sinkane, and much the better for it, allowing his mind to really wander beyond any generic restrictions and frame the instrument and Justin at their most free, intuitively expressive, creating a genuinely lush, naively wide-eyed sound that just happens to dovetail with the sweetest sides of Ghost Box, the sacred forms of Kyle Bobby Dunn or even an energy-depleted Colin Stetson. From Justin: I set out to record an album of completely improvised music that fused my experiments with the Electronic Valve Instrument and my love of held sounds on the trumpet. In recent years I've come to see the trumpet as an instrument that speaks in slow and long sounds, with meaning coming from the shape and inflection of each note. The process for this was fairly straight forward, record lots of improvisations. Of the songs on the album, six are one-take improvisations with the only overdubs being drums. The remaining five are multi-tracked improvisation, meaning all elements of the song were first take improvisations. Nothing was programmed in a computer, everything was sampled live. This was the key part in the process of recording this music, providing the necessary structure needed to follow an idea to its end in real time. Lullabies and Nightmares: 1. Mind Shapes 2. Dream Weaving 3. Awakening 4. Lullabies & Nightmares 5. Western Tears 6. Fears of a Wild Man 7. The Way of Five 8. Plastic People 9. Thoughts 10. Sister Sleeper 11. I Saw Your Face [youtubehd]KL4R8iv0vkE[/youtubehd] I'd never heard of this guy before but I checked it out just because it's on Kranky and this is really good. He creates some really beautiful tunes.
  6. Wasn't aware this album was coming out until this song, 'Margins', came through on my soundcloud feed from Kranky. Sounding very nice indeed. https://soundcloud.com/kranky/benoit-pioulard-margin
  7. From Scott Morgan: “This album gets its name from an odd little ocean side park that borders industry and the Vancouver port authority and lays claim to being the birthplace of the city. “In a way, Sketches from New Brighton it is a continuation of a dialogue with my environment that started with First Narrows (kranky 2004) and continued with the Strathcona Variations EP (Ghostly International 2009). It is not a rigorous "study" per se, but more a series of sketches, loose interpretations of the spaces I inhabit as well as an acknowledgement of their influence on my practice. These are my impressions, a kind of sketch of New Brighton and the surrounding area in an abstract form.” "This sixth full length album from kranky mainstay Scott Morgan sees his pulsing compositions gently unfolding in the understated fashion that has become his trademark. He designs a sonic architecture, slowly constructing, making subtle additions and subtractions, until an almost tactile virtual space is formed. Inside these spaces an aural feng shui is achieved, where less is more, where every element is in its place, and where maximum harmony is attained through the masterly placement of sound." 1.

    Ethernet - Opus 2

    This guy is one of my favourite producers of immersive, meditative electronic music. New album is his best work yet. This cut is the warmest track on the album. From here it feels like you get pulled out into space, through a black hole and emerge into another universe: http://dummymag.com/reviews/2013/01/07/ethernet-opus-2/ http://boomkat.com/#cds/635139-ethernet-opus-2
  9. "Liz Harris / Grouper has collected 12 unreleased recordings from the sessions which yielded her 2008 breakthrough record, Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, for The Man Who Died in His Boat, a new LP set to drop next year via Kranky. In addition to the new album, Harris and Kranky will be reissuing Grouper's aforementioned 2008 full-length, a record that we were rather fond of at the time—even saying of it, "Music this lovely could almost change the world." The Man Who Died in His Boat and the Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill reissue are both set to see a release in February 2013." look http://www.xlr8r.com/news/2012/12/grouper-collects-unreleased-reco
  10. http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/mirroring "Amazing album of diffuse, DIY drone-pop from two doyennes in the field: Liz 'Grouper' Harris and Jesy 'Tiny Vipers' Fortino. The material featured on Foreign Body is every bit as subdued than its creators' respective solo work, but the collaboration is more than sum of its parts: Harris's searching, poetic command of reverb is as distinctive and quietly overwhelming as ever, and she sculpts gorgeously murky, sylvan atmospheres for Fortino to set her more traditionally folk-influenced vocal performances and finger-picked guitar lines in. The song-based compositions are incredibly affecting, but arguably the duo soar highest when exploring more pensive instrumental shades, as on 'Cliffs' and 'Mirror Of Our Sleeping', the latter most strongly reminiscent of the minimalist direction Harris has been taking Grouper has been taking recently, with an elegiac drift that reminds us of both David Sylvian's ambient work and Aphex's SAW II. Really, it's that good: a majestic work from two artists at the top of their game."
  11. Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt has completed his next solo album, Tragedy & Geometry. Hauschildt is best known for his work with Emeralds, the acclaimed electronic drone trio behind last year's Does It Look Like I'm Here?, but he's also put out string of solo releases since 2007 (one under the name Celestial Sprinkle). That said, you'd be forgiven for not having heard of them: all were released on cassette or limited edition CD-R through various underground experimental labels. Tragedy & Geometry will be his first solo release to reach a wide audience. It shows him touching on a number of lofty themes: the title is a reference to the Greek mythological figures Melpomene and Polyhymnia (muses of tragedy and geometry), and the first track is a nod to "Polyhymnia, Muse of Eloquence," a painting by the French artist Charles Meynier that can be seen in Hauschildt's hometown at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Stylistically, the album has much of the same cosmic ambience that defines Emeralds' trademark sound. Tracklist 01. Polyhymnia 02. Batteries May Drain 03. Cupid's Dart 04. Already Replaced 05. Peroxide 06. Arche 07. Music for a Moire Pattern 08. Blue Marlin 09. The Impossible Flower 10. Too Short a Season 11. Allegiance 12. Tragedy & Geometry 13. Overnight Venusian 14. Stare Into Space Kranky will release Tragedy & Geometry on November 14th, 2011. http://www.residenta...s.aspx?id=14826 Surprised that this isn't being released on Editions Mego/Spectrum Spools.

  13. http://www.awvfts.com/ So there are some tour dates set up for the new Adam Wiltzie (half of Stars of the Lid) and Dustin O'Halloran collaboration. Benoit and Ken are going to be playing some music too. Can't say for any other shows, but the San Francisco venue is 21+ so I won't be seeing your lovely faces there. Anyways, thought a fair amount of you would be interested to know this. It should be quite beautiful and enjoyable, considering how fantastic the new album is.
