Amp – Souvenir

Wurlitzer Jukebox, 1996

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”18″]AMP are Richard Walker and Karine Charff, usually joined by several others.  On this album, Matt Jones (Crescent, Movietone, Flying Saucer Attack) and Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation, Flying Saucer Attack) appear.  Very similar to FSA but more spooky, with much noise and distortion, and mantra-like spoken-word vocals by Karine Charff.

Drooping Finger – Arthur’s Hell

Inverted Grim-Mill Recordings, 2018
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”15″]Drooping Finger aka Jonas Halsall has managed to create such a richly textured Final or Jeck-like evolving soundscape in his release Arthur’s Hell that I’m actually dumbstruck. In turns washes of white noise and in others huge roomy string pads. Buy it.[/perfectpullquote]

Zobel – Daedrahedron

LOM, 2018
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”18″]Close to my house where I grew up was a power line that constantly buzzed and sang in the wind. This sound was my all-time companion, it became an integral part of me whether I was sitting in a garden or strolling along muddy lakes. I even heard it while falling asleep. After moving to Daugavpils, I strongly felt its absence. Deadrahedron is an attempt at calling it back, a meditation that helps me come back to the forests surrounding my house or lets me wander through a power line wherever I want. I always listen to it before sleep or when I am filled with longing.[/perfectpullquote]

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”18″]Glockenspiels & reverb sounds like it would be some kind of new age release, but somehow Small Life Form makes it sound aggressive & menacing, just like Christmas.[/perfectpullquote]
