EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+.cue+log) - 230 MB | Covers - 24 MB
Genre: Electronic, Ambient, Experimental, Tribal | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Ndeya (NDEYA7CD)

A companion piece to 2018’s Listening To Pictures, this second volume in the Pentimento series presents eight new tracks by the music visionary, continuing his lifelong exploration of the possibilities of recombination and musical gene-splicing. Pentimento is defined as the “reappearance in a painting of earlier images, forms, or strokes that have been changed and painted over” and this is evident in the innovative production style that ‘paints with sound’ using overlapping nuances to create an undefinable and intoxicating new palette.
In classic Hassell fashion, the title can be interpreted in a myriad of ways, but perhaps the most pertinent at the moment is the human instinct to sing and play through a rain of difficulties…

Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Spotted Peccary (SPM 1102)

The Storm is an excursion into deep, often un rooted ambience. Stearns can completely transform a space with his swirling layers of sounds. Environments cascade atop each other as the Balinese "Ketjak" chante merges from a white noise of rain and barber-pole glissando, but he also leavens The Storm with welcome respites of minimally drawn melody. The Last Feeling is a techno-tribal trance work of plaintive flute melody and hypnotic hand percussion, while The Light in the Trees illustrates the deep melancholy Stearns can evoke with just a few well-placed chords.

The second Hypnos release by James Johnson (following Entering Twilight from a couple years back), The Butterfly Chamber is a refined, delicate and beautiful piece of work. James Johnson has advanced his art, especially from the standpoint of musicality, and the incorporation of more traditional elements, into an ambient style. Johnson himself describes The Butterfly Chamber as follows: "With a sonic pallet of generative ambient textures, minimal piano, and live acoustic performances from Chris Short (Ma Ja Le) & Susan Johns, The Butterfly Chamber features richly woven textures and sinuous atmospheres."

This UK EM duo is bound to set the scene on fire with their debut disc. Fans of mid 1970s Tangerine Dream will love the pulsing sequences and dense Mellotron which harkens back beautifully to Phaedra and Rubycon.

The album is not just a TD copy, but uniquely original in its own right.

Michael Stearns is an electronic wizard, sound designer and master of analog synth space music. To a certain extent, Michael Stearns can be considered as the founding father of the Californian sacred space music scene next to Steve Roach and Robert Rich. Sacred Site marks the return of Michael Stearns as a solo artist after five busy years creating spectacular soundtrack music. Stearns saw the dawn of the 90's while traveling to Indonesia, Thailand, Egypt, Costa Rica, Brazil and the Galapagos Islands to record indigenous music and sound effects for film assignments. Arriving with an open mind and a finely tuned ear for ambience, he left stimulated - not only by the exotic soundscapes and unfamiliar instruments he heard, but also by the powerful, elemental music of these ancient worlds…

Label: Bedroom Community | # HVALUR 2 | Time: 00:38:42
Experimental Electronic, Noise, Ambient

Blending the current trend for all things noisy with something altogether more 'composed' we end up with a curious concoction of Cliff Martinez and Wolf Eyes, stopping at planet Badalamenti for a strong cup of Joe ("black like midnight on a moonless night"). Frost's primary influence (and sound source…) for the album was Michael Gira's seminal noise-rock band Swans, an influence which bubbles majestically on the album's central piece, cunningly titled 'We Love You Michael Gira'. The track starts simply enough; shifting, moody synthesized tones sitting eerily next to shivering waves of guitar noise before both give way to the sort of glacial blip-work that would make Mika Vainio jealous, and then it hits you; chunks of percussive noise that enter the sound-field like a serial killer bursting into the family home, gritty and abrasive, raw and untamed. The Swans factor isn't lost in this track, it's something that needs to be played so loud that it almost hurts the eardrums for full, visceral effect and proves as if proof be needed that Ben Frost is a rare producer who really knows how to use the loud as it should be used.
