Pauline Oliveros, Stuart Dempster, Panaiotis ‎– Deep Listening (New Albion / Important Records)

The Deep Listening Band (DLB) was founded in 1988 by Pauline Oliveros (accordion, “expanded instrument system”, composition), Stuart Dempster (trombone, didjeridu, composition) and Panaiotis (vocals, electronics, composer). David Gamper (keyboards, electronics) replaced Panaiotis in 1990.

Crystal Axis – Nyayo House (Self Released)

straight outta Nairobi. Kenyan punk rockers Crystal Axis

via Arise

Mutilomaquia – 9ml – A familiar void is gazing back / Hypodermic reflection (& Options)

Dark Summer

via Sangam

Forrest Fang – Letters To The Farthest Star (Projekt)

Like messages from a universe without geographic borders, these pieces shift from dark, organic ambient passages to emotional, melodic interludes. In those moments, the tracks are textural, propulsive, expressive, and transparent; Fang’s sound is anchored by an Asian sensibility that reflects his fondness for stringed and percussion instruments from China, Indonesia and Turkey.

Marco Fusinato – Spectral Arrows: Venice (Bocian)

Love this storming noise guitar work

Spectral Arrows: Venice was recorded during Fusinato’s participation in the 2015 Venice Biennale. Where Spectral Arrows: Rotterdam (De Player, 2013) and Spectral Arrows: Sydney (Planam, 2014) presented heavily edited highlight reels, here we get five longer excerpts from the 8-hour performance.

Bettie Serveert – Palomine (Brinkman Records, 1992 / PIAS, 2015)

Bettie Serveert’s “Palomine” (1992, this reissue 2015). What a smasher.

Brokeback – Field Recordings from the Cook County Water Table (Thrill Jockey)

Some say Brokeback’s debut is a continuation of Doug McComb’s post-rock heritage, but I’ve always believed that it is, in fact, a revelatory new age record RELEASED IN 1999. Anyway, it’s one of my favorite albums to write to. It vibrates the senses, etc.

Music For Your Heart – Turning Marvel (Sunday Service)

Some beautiful music on this album by Music For Your Heart (@golden_glades)

On Turning Marvel, Music For Your Heart’s palette ranges from indie anthem to pastoral gem and pays knowing reference to the raw sparseness of early Cat Power, Slint’s aural intensity, Nico’s dark elegance and the welcome transparency of the Radar Brothers. The recordings took place in Glasgow and Hamburg, supervised and coaxed to perfection by Raymond McGinley of Teenage Fanclub and mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac).
