The Anything-Goes Aesthetic of the Lithuanian Experimental Electronic Scene 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Lithuania may be the most populous of the former Soviet Baltic states, but relatively speaking, it’s still small—its population is about the size of Chicago’s. That’s not all it shares with the Windy City: the music scene in Lithuania’s capital Vilnius is home to artists who like to blur the organic and the electronic, and to explore lengthy hypnotic live jams—which is not too far removed from the Chicago post-rock of artists like Tortoise and Gastr Del Sol.

The Best Experimental Music on Bandcamp: January 2023 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

All kinds of experimental music can be found on Bandcamp: free jazz, avant-rock, dense noise, outer-limits electronics, deconstructed folk, abstract spoken word, and so much more. If an artist is trying something new with an established form or inventing a new one completely, there’s a good chance they’re doing it on Bandcamp. Each month, Marc Masters picks some of the best releases from across this wide, exploratory spectrum. January’s selection includes genre-mashing, shrieking noise-jazz; hydraulic sound submersion; and moving drones played on an instrument made of metal and glass.

The Best Ambient on Bandcamp: January 2023 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Even by January standards, this month was a pretty quiet period for new releases. It forced me to dig deep into corners of Bandcamp that I rarely delve into. Because of this, I was able to grow fond of a number of records I may not have otherwise allowed myself to love. From Phauss’s uncomfortable noise odysseys to Tomoyoshi Date’s long-awaited new album, these are the most compelling records I found uploaded to this website under the ambient tag this month.
