Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Tunnels – On a Body of Nothing But Radiance

The Tunnels is a one man project by Nicholas Samuel Bindeman, known for his participation in Jackie-O-Motherfucker. This cd-r is a re-release of a tape, and to the best of my knowledge, it’s a couple of years old. The disc is self-released in a tiny edition, and is presumably self-labeled by Bindeman in black marker. This is the third artist associated with JOMF that I’ve have the pleasure of listening to, who were also at one time on the YarnLazer cd-r label. Honey Owens, aka Valet, and Adam Forkner‘s White Rainbow both produced very fine and very divergent psychedelic music for the label (and for Kranky Records as well.). Bindeman’s music is slightly more “rock” than the aforementioned artists, yet his music is no less intriguing.

Pee-pee – Catile Jackine Is Vooded At Broonus Mousin:Vol 1
Pee-pee brew up a very quirky, often highly tuneful & addictive cocktail of folk/rock, indie pop & lo-fi electronics. Managing to stay gloriously lop-side and wonky yet surprisingly at the same time highly approachable and basically a hell of a lot of fun.

Steve Roach, Byron Metcalf & Mark Seelig – Nada Terma
Nada Terma is a rich, exotic and mysterious eastern tinged ambient ride that brings together ethic percussionist Byron Metcalf, Bansuri flutist and Dilruba player Mark Seelig and ambient explorer Steve Roach.
