Playlist: 30 July – 5 August 2018

For your con­veni­ence, espe­cially those who don’t stay up to date with social media, here are last week’s blurbs for inter­est­ing albums to check out!

If you’d like to get them while they’re hot, fol­low our updates on Twit­ter, or join the com­munity on our Dis­cord.


Chopped up words and sounds, per­cus­sions, on this exper­i­mental 1980 piece by Jerry Hunt: From “Ground”.

Out this week on Other Minds.


Whaddya know, there’s an actual new Even­ing of Light release!

Dark synths galore on this one…


Utred’s Trib­ute II is a dun­geon synth cover album. His selec­tion is very tight, draw­ing metal, soundtracks, new age, prog together into a remark­ably cohes­ive sound.

Oh, and it has “Africa”. Get in there!


Turns out that I should be dig­ging deeper into Bart Graft’s dis­co­graphy.

Empyr­ean is an aston­ish­ing mix of dream rock, new age, and syn­thy pop.

Dig in!


Oldie. Goodie. Free­bie.

con_cetta’s scler­osis (2008) is a subtle, organic ambi­ent record. soft bells, waves, crackles, beats.

All of Busi­ness Casual’s Digital Office releases are stel­lar, and the fourth one (2016) is no excep­tion.

Funky upbeat elec­tron­ics from start to fin­ish.
