Samantha Grace Edwards :: Graceland (Beartown)

Puntastic title aside, this one-act sound playlet brings down a proper, dirty brick chill onto even the most clement day.

Tangent :: Transience (Tympanik Audio)

Tangent combines dense musical forces that compliment the circular cosmic spot we all inhabit. We wrote about Tangent’s debut 1mk2 (Mindtrick, 2013) described as “…a slice of cosmic detail, broken into ten distinctive fragments that melt together,” and now they’ve reemerged (unsurprisingly) via Tympanik Audio’s conduit for enraptured sonic chaos. Transience doesn’t veer too far […]

3View :: Infraction

Founded around the turn of the millenium, Infraction Records has played an unerring long game since then.

Christian Fennesz :: Aun: The Beginning And The End Of All Things (Ash International)

Fennesz’ score is likely the most accessible music he has ever written, capturing the nexus of nature and civilization—the sea, the city of Tokyo, the grand modernist question mark that is the city of Brasilia, the forest clad in snow—that is the stage for Honetschlager’s story of hope and despair, imagination and the cold, hard […]
