Talking about new music that came out in October – one more time! See part 1 of the roundup here, part 2 here and part 3 here.


CLEARED – The Key (Sundry Items)

CLEARED are Steven Hess & Michael Vallera. The Key was assembled and mixed by Vallera at home in the winter of 2019-2020. Chicago’s pale, uncertain winter light, which renders objects with a kind of clarity, shorn of glamour or pretense, may have lent something to the album’s aura of lucidity. Meditative and purposeful, Cleared display a preternatural ability to hover on a suspended moment, at the edge of what is yet to come – a liminal space between anxiety and calm.

Kuma – Time Makes Memory Of Us All (Soundtracking The Void)

‘Time Makes Memory Of Us All’ is the debut release on Soundtracking The Void from Canadian producer/DJ Kuma. His feet firmly grounded in the dubstep community after releases with Bristol’s Immerse and TKG this record marks something of a change in direction.

A selection of drifting ambient pieces recorded throughout May, ‘Time Makes Memory Of Us All’ is a set of invocations to exorcise demons with organic drones and glistening ebbs of sound.

Goldmund – The Time It Takes (Western Vinyl)

Pennsylvania native Keith Kenniff’s output as Goldmund has established him as one of the preeminent composers of minimal piano-based ambient music alongside peers like Hauschka, Dustin O’Halloran, and even Ryuichi Sakamoto, who himself once described Kenniff’s work as “so, so, so beautiful”. His recordings tread sincerely along paths laden with dusty timbres, diffuse synthesizer, and soaring string textures tinted by the muted glow of a cloudy analog sky above

Arturo Stàlteri – From Ajanta to Lhasa (soave)

‘From Ajanta to Lhasa’ is an intense and unique work with mystical and exotic references that sees the light for the first time in 40 years, and find its place among the must-haves artifacts of the Italian experimental/minimalist scene.

Dregs of Zen – S/T (Weird Garden)

A confounding blend of lo-fi electronics, samples and field recordings, pulsing beneath murmured slices of pot-poetry and socially (un)conscious discourse.
