Bambara – Stray (Wharf Cat Records)
Pulverising soundscape; by turns, vast, atmospheric, cool, broiling and at time

For Psaronius, Euglossine searches for poetic correlations between contemporary domestic reality and historic technology. The Greek meaning of Psaronius is precious stone and also the name of a prehistoric genus of tree-fern. Slices of the massive fern were petrified throughout time and polished into ornaments of value by people, chosen because of the ancient and complex patterns they displayed.
When I first moved to Columbus OH and would ask people who was doing crazy electronic music there, every single person mentioned Jacoti Sommes. He has been a staple of the music scene as a performance artist in the group Hugs and Kisses and with intense improvised dance music under his own name. Travel Time, his first album with Orange Milk, takes that live drum machine and synthesizer improv energy but channels it through tight compositions.
Out now on Orange Milk Records

Like Weeds – Orgreave (Hostile 1 Tapes)
On June 18th, 1984, police sent 6000 officers to break a picket line at a British Steel Corporation coking plant in Orgreave, South Yorkshire. The ensuing police riot left 100s of strikers injured or in jail. This tape is a fist-clenched trudge through that horrific day and the years of delayed justice that followed. Massive bass blasts blend with samples and harsh noise like only Sanderson can provide. Real union man electronics. Rather be a picket than a scab.

Connive – S/T (Reserve Matinee)
Under the Connive alias, Michael Stumpf (Faithful, Esper Werm, Drosophila, et al) presents cathartic slabs of dense multi-sourced noise straight to your dome.

Modal Plane / Pressurewave Split (Circuit Church)
Starbirthed – Tour Guide (Flower Room)
Expanding on the glimpse of their Summer 2019 tour offered via the “More Messages From Starbirthed” cassette, on “Tour Guide” Starbirthed presents lightly-edited sets performed live in the intimate settings of Brickbat Books in Philadelphia and Trans-Pecos in New York. From tranquil, celestial origins, the two longform pieces flow through sparse, ambient passages of synth tone and acoustic guitar, accumulating live loops until they eventually reach ecstatic release.
