Can feel the weather starting to change, so time to return to this beauty from David Colohan on

Forest Management has become one of my favorite contemporary projects over 2018. John Daniel’s (
@cascadecrash) music is pacifying and contemplative, and moves me in profound ways. Check out his new CD of piano loops on his new imprint After Hours

I paid cash money for this album and you should too
Suggested by Bob Corrigan
Frissk is a project that came to life through conversations between Glitchfield and Adam Hell, a couple of sessions in the studio followed, the material focused on 8bit sounds, acydd, 80s and lo-fi and mostly coming from hardware and handheld gear.

WAKE IN JUNE (
@WasItJoy) has a new 2 song single out now. If you’re not familiar with his kinda New Order inspired, kinda shoegazey but not as in your face songs, you should be. Great subtle builds and layers of guitars that’s never heavy or overbearing.

I’m in an FB group people were slagging off the NPR top 100 2018 list as they hadn’t heard of any of them. I’m not saying it’s a good list. I wrote a response on their lethargy, re being gifted nearly 100 recommendations to try and them not bothering, supporting new artists. Ever more conservative releases etc etc but didn’t post it (certain irony in that somewhere) you just cant tell some people. Anyway I’ve just played the Forgotten How To Live single and feel good about searching out the interesting stuff!

Truly a Northern English album, Belmont Slope is a haphazard car ride across the M62, a love letter to the hills of Yorkshire and Lancashire, a paean to desolate beauty, unattainable love and lost friends.

Adult Swim, 2018
Welcome to hell, well maybe not hell, but a hellish soundscape, produced by Autechre. The revered British duo has released a new song for Adult Swim’s singles program called “sinistrail sentinel” and the title captures the mood entirely. The nearly 12-minute song is dark and menacing, with percussion echoing around the listener, dark, intermittent bass stabs, piercing high-pitched effects and haunting low sounds that come and go like you are walking through a hellish haunted house and they jump out at you indiscriminately with menace.

New York Night Train, 2006 / Groover Recordings, 2007
This song was recounts a (2006) dream about David Bowie’s dead body…but it was really about a girl who dumped me (of course) and David’s body was merely a stand in for the moribund relationship.

Improvisations and interludes; music for repaired piano. All sounds are sourced from a restored 1906 Hobart M. Cable Piano.
Peel Session, 1992
It pays to talk to no one. A life code. Grudge match. This is the summer of malcontent. This is the winter of your mind. This is the spring without end. Free range. Also sprach Zarathustra. In 10 years, a life code. Proliferating across the earth
