for the elements to carve and shape?
What are bones but oracles?’

clocolan – Daisy Chain (Castles in Space)
The COVID-19 crisis has played havoc with the release schedule for CiS, but we’ve taken the decision to rush release a new super-limited lathe cut 7″ from clocolan. This in advance of upcoming vinyl release of his latest LP.
“Daisy Chain” will be released later in the week.
Electronic devices wired together in sequence—a “daisy chain”—is a useful metaphor for a climatological collapse: just as each device in the series is essential for the next, when a natural system fails, all others that depend on it will fail too. This is the extinction vortex.

Model Home – 15 (Self Released)
Tatsuya Nakatani & Shane Parish – Interactivity (Cuneiform Records)
New Shane Parish music is always cause for celebration!
R. Weis has been composing with manipulated sound for more than 30 years. Now you can hear 3 of his earliest compositions — scores for dance that are among the first of his projects to get attention in New York City. No one has heard these scores since they were originally presented in the early 1990s.
They were created when Weis had one foot in analogue and one
foot in digital: newly using a keyboard sampler but still recording, layering, and assembling on multiple cassette tapes.
Sense – A Slow But Sure Demise… (Self Released)
This was the appropriate soundtrack for listening to the truly 21st century bullshit that is the #HouseDebateonBailout. And that’s a compliment.

Tamikrest – Tamotaït (Glitterbeat Records)
Sometimes music is more than the notes played or the words sung. Sometimes it’s a spirit that catches fire and burns with a dangerous, dazzling flame. On Tamotaït, Tamikrest’s fifth studio album, the music blazes bright and long. With the political situation so volatile and desperate in the Saharan ancestral lands from which Tamikrest comes, this is more than an album. This is resistance.

Dorio – Yesterday The Sky Was Blue (Citrus City Records)
CCR103 /New album for Texas based artist Dorio!
Jonathan Snipes – Mope (Deathbomb Arc)
Composer Jonathan Snipes has the outstanding ability to create music from a few distinct, recognizable audio sandboxes and end up with something that sounds unlike any of the sources. For his soundtrack to the film ‘MOPE’, opera, synth pop, and the classic porno soundtrack are all pulled from. In the end we’re given pure Snipes though.
