Jon Mueller – Codex Intueri (Rhythmplex)
Blurs the line between acoustic drumming and more formalized techno music.

Alina Simone covers the music of Soviet punk poet, Yanka Dyagileva.
Bored Lord – Nu Metal Toolz (Self Released)
Ay, @glorbis @aerielist so this is weird, have you heard Bored Lord’s Nu Metal Toolz? They’re breaky edits of nu metal classics, to be honest, they bang.
Bummed I missed these shows of one of my favorite bands Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, they sounded great. Also does Lydia have sheet music?

Topdown Dialectic – Vol. 2 (Peak Oil, 2019)
Sophomore set of illusory software installations by undisclosed North American technologist Topdown Dialectic, sourced from the same vault as 2018’s celebrated self-titled LP
Dunning and Brosamer – Glocken (Invisible City Records)
NP: mechano-goth rumbles, aetheric scuffles
Yummy sound-dust from that there @grahamdunning and Sascha Brosamer on @inviscityrecs
Saariselka – The Ground Our Sky (Temporary Residence Limited)
Saariselka is inspired by the meeting of earth and light, where slowly moving land masses merge with enveloping light fields. This sonic collaboration between composers Marielle Jakobsons (Fender Rhodes, organ, synthesizers) and Chuck Johnson (pedal steel guitar and treatments) is as expressive as it is enigmatic.
M. Grig – Mount Carmel (12k)
Michael Grigoni is a multi-instrumentalist who specializes in dobro, lap steel and pedal steel guitar living in Durham, North Carolina. His songs are beautiful, slow, wistful and lonely. The hazy, sliding sound of the guitars steep the music in nostalgia and mystery as these instruments can so often beautifully do. Mount Carmel is his debut release on 12k, an album close to his heart.
Urban Jazz Ritual – Car Crazy (Zulu Records)
Lost scouse classic.
Mark Jenkin – Bait (Original Score) (Invada)
Was trying to suss out who did the drone pieces on Bait. Found the other bits on IMDb but couldn’t find the drone bits I particularly liked. Turns out it was Mark Jenkin himself and it is released on @invadauk
1987 compilation featuring Due Process, Smegma, Emil Beaulieau, John Zewizz and more
Swimming In Bengal – Collective Elephant (Lather, 2019)
The music is improvised without any overdubs.
Jake Muir – Lady’s Mantle (sferic)
Sunnies on, drop-top down, sferic cruise the best coast with Jake Muir, an artist and field recordist hailing from Los Angeles, California, where he’s previously recorded and released albums under the Monadh moniker for Further Records and Touch, the latter of which on the compilation ‘Live At Human Resources’, where he took part in a beautiful group tribute to Jóhann Jóhannsson along with a number of solo contributions.
Scuba – Expectations (Hotflush Recordings)
Is this what you expected?
