C_C - Gentianes Et Myrtilles (Cold Moss)
French artist Eduardo Ribuyo aka C_C is known for more than 10 years for his unique blend of bass-heavy, dub-infused industrial breaks and his long several hours hypnotic performances. A quiet strength of the French underground, he released on labels such as Small But Hard, Da! Heard It Records, Zamzam Records, Fougère, Krut, and Thirdtypetapes (which he co-founded). Shortly after moving to the French countryside a few years ago, he found a renewed inspiration using a more restrained setup, whom limitations he uses, to create uncanny landscapes where his craftsman mastership is transcended by the innocence and the freshness of a fierce beginner.
Christine Abdelnour & Andy Moor - Unprotected Sleep (Unsounds Label)
Christine Abdnelnour and Andy Moor have explored the notion of hypnagogia or ‘unprotected sleep’ to drive their process for this improvised album, delving in their own experience and memories. Unprotected sleep is commonly defined as an altered state of consciousness that occurs beyond the proper or intended time of waking up, not sleeping in your own safe bed, or even sleeping without a blanket.
Diane Barbé - A conference of critters (Forms of minutiae)
For its fifth release, forms of minutiae presents "a conference of critters", a collection of field recordings from Thailand by sound artist Diane Barbé. "These pages are wrinkled, curled, soaked in the dense thick air since weeks; the lines of ink smudge a little. The words touch. Nights, storms, warm afternoons: all is said in the tale of terrestrial things. Up in a madan tree, a koel repeats its call, incessant, signalling something. A group of women is planting seeds, laying flowers in the water, hands in the soil. The critters confer; living together in a collective river, floating through the stream of extended time, connected like the organs of the same body. Microphone in hand, I am sheltered under a large banana leaf, witnessing the rain that touches all of us inhabitants of this forest. The critters confer; the water circles endlessly. " - Diane Barbé
Dr Pete Larson - Field Drift 1 (Dagoretti Records)
The last decade or so has found Peter Larson focusing his musical lens on mastering the nyatiti and contorting the dialectical sounds of the African instrument and musical mentality into something psychedelic and forward pushing. Throughout the summer of 2022, however, a growing fascination with Michigan's ongoing techno history led to Larson personally delving into the creation of electronic music. Solitary hours in the practice space spent in contemplation and experimentation eventually resulted in Field Drift 1
, the first in what might be a series of releases collecting the restless, thoughtful, and cathartic sounds of this initial segue into synthesizer music.
Drone Baron - Dusk At Shadow Castle (Lotophagus Records)
In six tracks which comprise the album Dusk At Shadow Castle
, Drone Baron resurrects the brutal Middle Ages of wars, epidemics and power struggles. From feudal Europe to the mysterious Orient, this album offers a medieval drone based on guitars and percussions.
