From Musique Machine:
Government Alpha – Venomous Cumulus Cloud
Venomous Cumulus Cloud kicks up one hell of a dense psychedelic shifting kaleidoscope of noise. Balancing perfectly the need to be brutal and complex in its texture and use of sound. Simply put this is one hell of a ride, its prime noise on the same level as some of Merzbow’s work.
Marhaug/Henrik – Grand Mutation
Grand Mutation is a gothic tinged sound strew collaboration between Norwegian noise master Lasse Marhaug and fellow Norwegian Composer Nils Henrik Asheim. The album conjures up a heady world of improvised church organ, noise and electronic treatments.
Moljebka Pvlse – Sadalsuud
Somewhere on Sadalsuud a woman whispers the mantra: “I have found myself, away from this world”. Probably somewhere near the star in the Aquarius constellation, “The luckiest of them all” from its originally Arabic meaning, after which this piece is named.
Feu Follet & Miina Virtanen – The Icicle Lectures Vol. 1
In a sense this is the antithesis to the Bexar Bexar album I reviewed earlier. That album conveyed the feeling of chilling out on an afternoon, after a burning hot day. This album is more of a chill, but equally soothing.
