Solilians is a psychedelic drone pop band from Long Island, New York. Appropriately enough, their album is dedicated to the memory of the late, great Leonard Nimoy, and sung in Hebrew. This cosmic crew of Sharon Malkin, Benjamin Malkin, Gabriel Walsh, and Neptune Sweet is very much on their own, special trip and we’re along for the ride.

Whirling Hall of Knives
A collaboration between Magnetize and The Last Sound, Whirling Hall Of Knives’ harsh smoldering circuits and eruptions of panicky white noise have a profoundly unsettling quality, a sense of gnawing paranoia but interspersed with moments of almost euphoric epiphany, as if in the grip of an unshakable 4am psychosis a growing sense that the door will be kicked in at any second and the world outside will come pouring in. Psyche electronics of a particularly greasy and grime-flecked hue.
Airstrip 101 is a one-man project out of Central MA best described as “dystopian psychedelics.” Using bass guitar, effects, synth, field recordings and vocoder to create hypnotic driving soundscapes with elements drawn from Krautrock, space, noise, industrial, and musique concrete.”
