Random picks from the sizable ☒ discography:
Chill vapors, weird text-to-speech, something uncanny…
Democracy of Dust appeared on Midira records last year and is a more bass and synth-driven take on thisquietarmy’s rocking drones.
Though instrumental, the album suggests reflection on our political climate, and its future.
Hawksmoor is a synth journey around London’s six Nicholas Hawksmoor churches.
Esoteric, more mysterious than dark. A treat for analog synth lovers!
Mater Natura Excelsa is a 4-way split on Avantgarde, feat. melodic black metal from Sorrow Plagues / De La Nostalgie / Elderwind / Dreams of Nature.
Melancholy, longing, and a touch of 90s era Summoning?
The best stuff is on the first half.
From earlier this year: ProtoU’s The Edge of Architecture (Cryo Chamber) is a brighter record than many of her previous works.
She builds a city, a detached, not-quite-of-this-world place, but somehow warm and familiar. Soft, weighty drones.
Crisp, crackling, warm.
On A Certain Distance, Catherine Debard’s YlangYlang takes us outside as well as inside with organic, partly improvised ambient.
From ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ’s winter solstice batch.
Proper heavy psych doom from Down Under. That’s what we get from POTION on Seven Sorcerers / Gravemaker, and their latest tape Women of the Wand.
This one goes straight for your neck with some weighty magics and mythic themes.
Woke up early, chilling out with the same beautiful sounds I fell asleep to.
Endless Melancholy’s Oceanmixes are soothing and deep. The project’s own opening track is gorgeous, and there are great mixes here by Gamardah Fungus et al.
