Sonnet, Stanza, Thine), and long-time student of decay, sustain & release, Rafael Anton Irisarri—guitar-y, synth-y, studio savvy. Previous dronership, solo and duo (Orcas), doesn’t quite […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

ASC :: The Farthest Reaches (Auxiliary)

Tracks on The Farthest Reaches register around 130 bpm, yet create a kind of illusion of movement towards a rolling half-step neo-Schaffel kinesis.
