Exploring Different Angles : Jakob Skøtt Talks Videodrones’ New Album ‘After The Fall, Bringing The Beat, And Exploring New Sonic Avenues

If you’re a regular here, or even just an occasional reader then you are probably aware of the massive love I have for record label El Paraiso Records. In my opinion they’re as important a label as giants like Blue Note, ECM, Sub Pop, Verve!, and SST when it comes to offering up brain re-wiring […]

Yves Malone : Immortal Death

The musical world of Yves Malone is a dark and slinky one. Heavy synth music with touches of Giallo, 80s slasher scores, and dystopian electronic that brings to mind late night viewings and 80s tube TV video game adventures. If you grew up on NES, USA Up All Night, and caffeinated Friday nights with video […]

Rupert Lally : Maniac’s Almanac

Rupert Lally gifted us an amazing ode to the haunted places of Stephen King’s literary worlds back in October with Where The Dark Speaks. Each track was a sonic imprint of places like The Marsten House, The Overlook Hotel, and of course Derry. Lally wove sonic worlds that brought you into King’s Gothic realm, one […]

Ogre : Gates of Nessus

Ogre’s brand new long player Gates of Nessus, which is the second release from Tom McDowell’s Library of the Occult record label, is described as “ambiences and mood music for deep dungeon crawling, pen and paper RPGs, and cult paperback fantasies of yester-decades.” I’ve never dungeon crawled and was never much of a fantasy dice […]

Premiere : Listen To Dream Division’s “The Power Of Light”; New Album Arrives July 3rd

Tom Mcdowell, aka Dream Division, makes electronic music that sinks into your brain slowly. He works in the world of analog synthesizers and creates sonic worlds that seem to have time traveled from the 70s and early 80s. Taking his cue from darker realms and inspired by the likes of Rizatti, Frizzi, and Carpenter, Dream […]

Michael Dugan’s ‘Mausoleum’

Spoiler Alert!!!  As we roll well into the third month of social distancing and pandemic loneliness there’s one thing I’ve realized: I don’t take advantage of my Shudder subscription nearly enough. I mean, I’ve had it since November of 2018. I grabbed it first and foremost for Graham Reznick’s crazy and most-excellent Dead Wax. That […]
