Bauri :: Vinkelvolten EP (Firescope)

A sound that many have forgotten but one that deserves to be heard, a style that had little pretense and would inspire modern acts like Kettel or EOD. Firescope gazing back to find Bauri at his vintage best. Nostalgia can be dangerous. The swoon for the past, candied memories of a bygone time. Nostalgia is […]

Metamatics :: Bodypop (Neo Ouija)

From braindance to bodypop, this album carves its own colorful and bumpy melodic pathway.

Autumn of Communion :: Autumn of Communion 2 (Anodize)

Blending post-digital now-voyaging with a hefty hark-back, these sub-genre archaeologists draw on trajectories of early-mid ’90s halcyon days and hybrids of IDM experimentalism and environmental space music, tapping into rich veins fed by cult-classic Namlook-mediated albums of the period. United in a spirit of inquiry into head and ear-space, Lee Norris and Michael Gainford follow […]

V/A :: Cottage Industries 3: Vestibule & Seperate (Neo Ouija, CD)

After the fragile delicacy and intricate construction of Xela’s For Frosty Mornings And Summer Nights, the distorted and disrupted supernatural transmission that was Deru’s Pushing Air and the tintinnabulations of Verbose’s Observe comes Cottage Industries 3: Vestibule & Separate.

Verbose :: Observe (Neo Ouija, CD/LP)

The release of All an Richmond’s debut LP for Neo Ouija has been long delayed (due to the label changing distributors this year) and as such, this album has a lot to live up to after the superlative quality of the label’s last two albums. Sadly, Observe seems to be a slight misstep for the […]

Bauri :: Slacker Journal (Neo Ouija)

At last, after a handful of e.p’s on Neo Ouija, English Muffin, De:Bug and Pitchcadet, Bauri’s debut album is here. Slacker Journal is music for contemplation: beautiful mood music that is subtle, melancholy, en-trancing and hypnotic. Like much of Neo Ouija’s recent output, the complexity, intricacy and construction of each piece is staggering. Bauri’s music […]

Funckarma :: Elaztiq (Neo Ouija, 12inch)

(04.25.02) Complex arrangements which constantly evolve and move in new directions are evident throughout this excellent 12″. “Briq” is a classic example of this. A storming track that bursts from the speakers with frenzied energy. Unpredictable beats and a mutating structure fused with sizzling, sparkling synths merge together to form the complex, multi-layered and cut-up […]
