Apokrifna Realnost - На Рєкахъ Вавл҃нскыхъ

Apokrifna Realnost - На Рєкахъ Вавл҃нскыхъ CD (AnnapurnA)

A much needed CD re-release of this cult 1988 tape from the Yugoslavian experimental underground. Apokrifna Realnost (or rather Aporea as it was known on the initial cassette) was one of the earliest projects of Goran Trajkovski and Zoran Spasovski, the Macedonian musicians who later reached prominence with their Byzantine folk rock as Anastasia and their goth rock / coldwave band Mizar.

This project's sole release was the material presented here, a unique synthesis of religious chanting, arcane ritual experimentation and deep-rooted folk music, all performed with the same characteristic skillfulness and fervor present on their later works.

November Növelet - The World In Devotion LP (Galakthorrö)

Label info: In recompense for the long waiting time, November Növelet is rewarding its dedicated listeners with a carefully created complete work of art, which complements its celebrated precursor Magic, in a splendid fashion. The new album shows a further development – the magical mixture continues: Mrs. Arafna’s unique vocal timbres, a beguilingly resigned performance full of melancholy, couched in deep black analogue electronics embossed with the characteristic Növeletic stamp. Fragile ghostly melodies, with weeping pad sounds together in tried and tested partnership, powered by driving bass figures and thrashing rhythms that strike sparks of divine light through the comfortless darkness of the present European Condition. Let your soul be illuminated from this shining jewel of timeless Synthesizer music, and thus experience – The World In Devotion.

Format: LP, standard unlimited edition in black vinyl
Te/DIS - Interrogation Gloom

Te/DIS - Interrogation Gloom CD (Galakthorrö)

Label info: Following the debut album in 2014, and the first live appearances in 2016, we have now Interrogation Gloom, the second album from Tempted Dissident (Te/DIS). It concerns the clear continuation of the familiar sound, an unmistakeable mixture of highly recogniseable vocals with individually tailored elektroniks. These became more analogue, but remain precise and cold, harking back to early Synth-Pop. A confident feel for songs and refined lyrics, are particular features also on this album. However the tracks are even more varied and cleverly connected, making it easier for the Hits to take centre-stage: On this record are darkling hymns such as Ruin Porn and In The Box, other titles develop an earworm quality. Naturally Te/DIS does not make for easy listening and challenges the listener again and again. Thus certainly keeping faith with the Galakthorrö Heavy Listening-Quality conspiracy.

Format: CD, clear jewel case with 12 page booklet
Da-Sein - Death Is The Most Certain Possibility

Da-Sein - Death Is The Most Certain Possibility LP (Galakthorrö)

Label info: Galakthorrö celebrates the presentation of Da-Sein's first album. Da-Sein continue on the path they've established on their debut EP Tautology: The album is impressive with its musical variety, skilfully arranged without falling to pieces. Minimalistic Angst Pop smashers with driving rhythms alternate with abstract sound sculptures. In certain selected places gloomy melodies drag themselves up from a foundation of organised drones and noises generated by the analogue synth. Deadpan female vocals from the Crypt, embedded in clouds of echo and gigantic reverberations, condense the omnipresent Darkness and Hopelessness. Just as diffuse as the voice, Heidegger's philosophy (used by the Artists as a stimulant) evaporates into the rather personal sounding lines of text. Only the title of the album, and of course the band's name, remain as an unambiguous testimonial. It doesn't matter, because Music opens the soul of both creator, and listener, to an equal extent. That happens here and that's how it should be.

Eric La Casa - Paris Quotidien

Eric La Casa - Paris Quotidien CD (Swarming)

On his latest self-released work, soundscape artist Eric La Casa willfully restricts his field recording methodology to his immediate surroundings, namely the inside of his Paris apartment and all the sounds emanating from within it and outside of its windows.

From the wider angle level of street noises, nearby construction and passing cars to the microscopic perception of electric interference, vacuum motors and ventilation system hums, "Paris Quotidien" is much richer in texture and variety than the initial domestic scope would imply. The 3 long tracks progress as an intimate and fascinating dive into a narrative recollection of the daily sounds that collectively form the audio signature of one's habitation, far from the fatigued stereotypical sonic portraits of Paris.

Format: CD, Deluxe CD book, 60 pages with text in French and English + color photos
Eric La Casa - Soundtracks

Eric La Casa - Soundtracks CD (Herbal International)

Self-explanatory 2015 album of material recorded as soundtracks for films by Luke Fowler, Christian Jaccard and Marie-Christine Navarro, dividing this into three chapters with distinct characters. Frequent collaborator Jean-Luc Guionnet also participates in the latter third with processed organ recordings.

At times utterly alien and disorienting, at others panoramic and naturalistic, but always expertly recorded and edited, Eric La Casa's work here is ultimately threaded by its sharp sense of narration and timing. Best enjoyed with high quality headphones, and a great pick to start with if you're looking for the more composed side of his recent work.

Format: CD, gatefold digisleeve
Eric La Casa - W2 [1998-2008]

Eric La Casa - W2 [1998-2008] 2CD (Herbal International)

Essential compilation of now hard to find material from sound artist Eric La Casa, thematically separated onto two CDs around the themes of wind and water. These pieces are just as much shaped by geography as by time itself, with each track's vocabulary varying according to what was recorded then and there.

As always La Casa masterfully crafts compelling sound stories with these two elements, emphasizing narration over some purely static documentary exercise. The sound of breezes, flowing rivers, wind tunnels, rain drops and other storms are structured but never denatured, retaining all of their organic depth and beauty. Absolutely recommended, especially to those appreciative of G*Park.

Vivenza - Réalités Servomécaniques CD (Rotorelief)

Remastered 2015 deluxe book edition re-release of the seminal 1985 LP by this project from Grenoble, France. Forget "industrial" and whatever exhausted imagery it summons, this is pure machine music, an orchestra of raw factory sounds conducted by a futurist maestro.

Rapoon - Wasteland Raga CD (Aquarellist)

Surprisingly less rhythmic than the opening track would lead you to believe, Wasteland Raga is marked by a strong sense of nostalgic sadness with its bright melodic tones, cloudy drones and exhausted pulse. Dirges for English industrial decline.

First Human Ferro - Heterodox CD (Old Captain)

Introspective and well executed cosmic drift / cinematic dark ambient from Olegh Kolyada, head of the Old Captain label, known for its high quality re-issues of out of print post-industrial releases. File somewhere between Loki Foundation primordialism and glossy Cryo Chamber productions.

In Gowan Ring - The Serpent And The Dove

In Gowan Ring - The Serpent And The Dove CD (Les Disques Du 7ème Ciel)

Label Info: B'ee is a leading figure in psychedelic folk, who has recorded under the pseudonyms In Gowan Ring and Birch Book since the mid-90s. The Serpent and the Dove is his 8th album. It is also In Gowan Ring's 5th album after a 13-year hiatus.

A modern-day troubadour, B'ee makes his own instruments, travels the world and brings back a myriad of musical influences. 60s psychedelic folk and early music remain his main sources of inspiration, though.

"The Serpent and the Dove recounts an alchemical journey through a luminous garden around the Living Tree; there is a serpent… and a dove. A candle flame flickers in the night, illuminating the face of a wandering sage sitting by a stream. He sings a story about a cosmic dancer which he'd heard whispered through the reeds: her rainbow eyes, her bowl of tea, and a field of dreams out of which grew the universe and all that we can see... There are willows; there are masks of leaves; there are thousands of bees." -B'ee

Thirteen years after his previous album, In Gowan Ring continues to enchant and take us back to the essence of what we are.
