From Musique Machine:
Diskrepant – Into Sleep
Into Sleepâ€™s title is very apt title as youâ€™re lowered into a subtle electronic/noise sound world that seems to exists between realities of dreamscapes and real life. Sound elements and half heard melodies dance by but nothing is ever 100 per clear- giving the whole album a hazy slightly blurred feeling, almost making you feel like you want pinch your self to see if your asleep or awake.
Akercocke – Antichrist
With Antichrist Akercocke have found the perfect balance between brutality,atmosphere and progressive/experimental elements to make an album thatâ€™s enjoyable and surprising from start to finish.
People Like Us & Ergo Phizmiz – Perpetuum Mobile
Perpetuum Mobile is full to its quirky, bizarre and sometimes tiring brim with kids show like looped brass tunes, strummed Hawaiian guitar waltzâ€™s, stuck cracking piano loops and all manner of snatched easy listing audio chesse. With all manner rhythmic elements, plundetronics and surreal advert or stage show singing over the top.
Zonder – Maybe you can live on the moon in the next century
The American trio Zonder (Dutch for ‘without’) presents a version of heavy rock that needs a few spins to grab you. The music is dense with all kinds of influences, performed with a raw energy.
10 – UFO
I previously reviewed an EP by this Korean/Japanese project by the same name, but this is a full album called UFO. Things haven’t changed much since then, but that doesn’t mean this is worth a listen.
Far Corner – Endangered
Rock is serious business. Well, not really, but by getting it out the sweaty clubs or screaming stadiums this so-called ‘chamber rock’ has acquired the more serious air of classical and contemporary composed music. Yet, while listening to Endangered you’ll find a serious amount of fun as well.
