Many Elephants : Human Errors

Just quick musical heads-up for Human Errors by Many Elephants. It’s a bit of an odd one in that it’s not exactly an album, more an OST for an imagined TV show. The tracks are short and unpronounced with nothing you’d point to and say ‘this is the one to listen to’ but together they create a nicely ambient whole. A little trip into a near future dystopia is where I’d place it, but that may just be down to where my head is at.

Good to stick on in the background on a dark night or, I reckon, a long journey looking out at the rain. Anyway, worth a listen.

You can find Many Elephants here and on Twitter.

Dry Land by Baydog

 

Been a while since I’ve done any sonic squirrelling but as I’m laid up with a cold today I took a random nose dive into the ‘newest’ section of Bandcamp. It’s always a joy once you spend the time to do it and there’s inevitably something good to be found if you poke around enough, like Dry Land by Baydog. Very cool Jazz/Electronic stuff, smooth as silk too – a good immersive listen on a miserable day. Grab it here.

YouSir – Hostile Takeover EP

Just a little something I made years and years ago. Recently disappeared from the internet as the site it was on culled their archives, so here it is again on Band Camp. It was a labour of love, although possibly not much talent but I’m still happy to have it out there. And it’s free to stream/download so feel free to have a listen. Electronic noodlings.

Natasha Kmeto : The Ache

Normally I limit myself to frowning disapprovingly at glitchy Electronica for having too many disjointed, discordant beats for my more refined tastes. Add to that the penchant for self indulgent meanderings from the producers who throw themselves into it with more than a handful of releases I come across about which all you can really say is that it’s ‘interesting’ in the tone of voice that whispers ‘crap’ beneath the half hearted compliment. Listening to The Ache though I’m finding myself a bit more amenable to the sonic awkwardness scattered throughout. Continue reading “Natasha Kmeto : The Ache”

Professor Kliq : The Scientific Method, Volume II Experiments in Sound Perspective

Professor Kliq – The Scientific Method, Volume II Experiments in Sound Perspective (Jamendo)

When an album has a title like that I can’t help but naturally assume that it’s going to sound terrible. Words like ‘experimental’ and ‘abstract’ all too often equate in muso language to someone getting carried away with themselves and telling everyone over and over again that 90 minutes of random noises is the future of music as opposed to a simple excersize in audio masturbation with ProTools. But hey, judge not an album by its title for it may well mean fuck all. Or it may mean rather less than your worst assumptions would suggest.
