Starting off the week with some solid post-rock by Italy’s 42DE, out on Fluttery Records.
Fall of the Moon (2018) has the right amount of chillout bits, the crescendos, the wistful atmosphere. And a hint of a hardcore guitar edge.
Bvdub - Born in Tokyo (2013, n5MD)
Solid album from Van Wey’s power ambient period.
Alice Coltrane - Journey in Satchidananda (1971, Impulse!)
The original spiritual jazz. Stellar.
Classic cosmic synth from Egyptology on Sur les autres mondes (Hands in the Dark, 2018).
Otherworldly melodies and pulsations, inspired by the work of French author and artist Lucien Rudaux.
OCA, Preset Music, from Constellation Tatsu’s summer batch. Fuzzy synths, nostalgic feels.
As the title suggests: each track highlights the textures of a particular synth instrument through improvised and possibly aleatory structures.
Primitive Knot - LV 246 (2018)
Pulses from the dark grid.
Yazz Ahmed - La Saboteuse (2017, Naim)
Superb Arabian-inflected jazz from this trumpet mistress. Grabbed me on the first listen, but delving deeper is going to be so rewarding, too.
