Saltings – The May Queen (Wormhole World)
From Irish-born composer Andrew Cooke, Saltings revels in this intrinsic energy, maturing his caliber in a number of different albums, while accomplishing a consistent binaural universe that exhales a language of “pastoral-horror-soundscape,” as Andrew puts it.
Chip Wickham – Blue to Red (Lovemonk)
Been waiting for this one, and it’s worth the wait. He sticks mostly to flute on this new album of spiritual jazz (and one fusion jam).

Tyler Holmes – Nothing (Ratskin Records)
I threw my life away for nothing
For their new two song EP, “Nothing” Oakland, CA based producer and multi-disciplinary artist and Ratskin Records collective member Tyler Holmes offers us two brand new compositions “Nothing” and “ Rinse [Breath Play]” Through intense voice and breath manipulation backed with their minimal yet powerfully presented electronic based compositions, nodding to Holly Herndon, Xiu Xiu, and Cocorosie, Holmes offers two forcefully elegant and haunting tracks both separate from but in dialogue with their upcoming full length LP “Nightmare In Paradise” on Ratskin in Fall 2020.

Tuluum Shimmering – Sister Ray Meets China Cat Sunflower Uptown (Self Released)
The Tuluum Shimmering covers series has been my go-to oasis throughout the pandemic. But with this morning’s Sister Ray>China Cat Sunflower, I’m now fairly convinced I’m trapped in a hologram and the machine is just pulling ideas from my dying brain.

Trium Circulorum – Noise Beach (DT Digital)
Returning from a Portugal holiday in September I had a hard time coping with the fact that I couldn´t hear the ocean waves breaking below our balcony 24/7 any longer. The fine spray, the noise, the breaking and rolling and then after 14 days…no waves, no beautiful organic noise, just the often ugly big city background soundtrack of cars, sirens and dogs and humans and…everything.
So I went into the studio, patched up my rack`s noise generators and some pedals and layed down some intense sessions. There are no field recordings used in this piece, its just improvisation on envelopes and filters.

We’ve released Sokoban’s debut album.
There hasn’t been a record so naturally joining catchy melodies with groovy rhythms and pleasing harmonies since @FlyingBohemian’s Joyrides.

We managed to sell out of tapes during the pre-order period alone, which is wild though I'm not complaining.

The new STONEGRASS duo record from Doc Dunn and Toronto's busiest drummer Jay Anderson is a pleasantly scorched series of wahwah psych blastoffs. Beautiful art by @dnorsen1 pushes it over the top into modern cult classic territory. Don't sleep on this one!https://t.co/PZTFj2vQDH
