Palmbomen II - Palmbomen II

Palmbomen II - Palmbomen II (Beats In Space Records / RVNG Intl.) Kai Hugo aka Palmbomen II drops one of the most distinctive entries to the proto and lop-sided slo-house discourse with this suite of sidelong, sidereal chuggers. RIYL High Wolf, Danielle Baldelli, Beautiful Swimmers… "Guided by voices hardwired into machines of dance productions past, Kai Hugo redirects the collaborative context of his Palmbomen project and escapes within to create the self-titled debut of Palmbomen II. Possesses the qualities of an artist slipping from one reality to the next, yet welcomes listeners to experience this transcendence in tandem." in boomkat

Luka Lozano & Mr Ho - Dripbox EP


Klasse Recordings label heads Luca Lozano and Mr Ho hook up here with a new EP on Creme Organization. They turn out one solo track each and two collaborative efforts and explore the sort of jacking, mystical house sounds you would expect from this established Dutch label. 

First up, 'Dripbox' - crafted by both producers - is raw and tough, with lots of analogue atmosphere, tripped out synths and muffled vocals. 'Bear Samurai' is then a solo effort from Mr Ho that marries droning sirens with gallivanting, lumpy drums and hiccuping percussive patterns. It's sythentica and metallic, reflective and shiny before the pair hook up again for 'Hot Trak', which is a more serene and bubbly deep house cut. The claps chatter, the cow bells get lively and the drums are super corrugated. Finally, Lozano gets even more raw and prickly, kinetic and textural with his closer 'Autonomika', which also comes complete with sci-fi melodies and a thick, dirty bassline that will destroy dance floors.

Prurient - Frozen Niagara Falls


Prurient - Frozen Niagara Falls ( Profound Lore) Comentários: ‘Frozen Niagara Falls’ is his defining, most exploratory and ultimately rewarding work to date. It’s an epic undertaking too - spanning two discs (the vinyl edition which will follow next month is a mammoth 3LP) and includes over an hour and a half of music, veering from the surprisingly contemplative destroyed-folk of ‘Greenpoint’ and 'Christ Among The Broken Glass’, to painfully blissful, Vangelis-esque night-scapes ('Jester In Agony’), to decimated noise ('A Sorrow With A Braid’, 'Falling Mask’) - and many many points in between. Narrated by Fernow’s own highly-presonalised vocals (arcing from indecipherable screech to startling, almost translucent spoken word), by the end of its 90+ minutes you feel worn out, exhilarated, withdrawn, pummelled and ultimately comforted by the sheer scope and ambition on display. It’s an album that finds Fernow as far removed from an artist resting on their laurels as you could imagine - there are no cheap thrills on offer, nor is the narrative designed to startle. In many ways, it encapsulates the all-too-often suppressed urges of young producers to just go wherever the mood, ideas and technology will allow without compromise - yet bolstered by the experience (musical, and otherwise) of someone who has been at it long enough for us to expect them to have long stopped trying. 2011’s excellent ‘Bermuda Drain’ was a bit of a game-changer for Fernow - embracing more overtly composed, structured electronic signatures with lyrical content and delivery that were at the polar opposite. Further - the Vatican Shadow releases that surfaced around the same time for labels such as Blackest Ever Black, Modern Love, Type and Fernow's own Hospital Productions brought him into the sightline of an audience that was largely made up of people who had never heard a noise record in their life. This slow-easing into Fernow’s unique, conflicted dystopia has laid the ground well for ‘Frozen Niagara Falls’ - an album that will most likely be listened to by a far broader demographic than any in Fernow’s career so far. There is an assured, obsessive, hungry quality to this material that is certain to elicit an obsessive following from both Fernow's long-standing noise worshippers and his more recent, electronically-minded converts - and yet it never feels overly knowing or contrived. On tracks such as ‘Cocaine Daughter’ this confluence is perfectly realised; drawing us in with spacious, warm pads riding alongside a doubled-up and grotesque narrative. It’s majestically beautiful and yet somehow desperately sad. Like the rest of the album, it feels genuinely without compromise - something that on its own would have been enough to have us singing its praises endlessly. As it is, it also happens to be one of the most engrossing and complex albums in recent memory - regardless of genre - so whether you’ve heard any Prurient albums before or not, we urge you to give it some of your time. in boomkat

American Reflexxx

“American Reflexxx is a short film documenting a social experiment that took place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Alli Coates filmed performance artist Signe Pierce as she strutted down a busy oceanside street in stripper garb and a reflective mask. The pair agreed not to communicate until the experiment was completed, but never anticipated the horror that would unfold in under an hour.” The result is a heart wrenching technicolor spectacle that raises questions about gender stereotypes, mob mentality, and violence in America. Directed by: Alli Coates Starring: Signe Pierce Filmed on location in Myrtle Beach, SC.

HEDGE MAZE - DYSANIA

HEDGE MAZE - DYSANIA (Lobster Theremin) Untitled is a chattering roller, smothered with a throbbing, wavy bassline and ending in a fuzzy, chord-soaked crescendo, while the slow, drudging rhythms of Dysania give a heavy nod to some of Lowtec's down tempo numbers for the label. The release is rounded out with the glistening, black-sun shower of (slow). All delay-drenched crystal stabs and oscillating soundscapes. A floating, ethereal trip into the afterlife.

Black Zone Myth Chant ‎– Mane Thecel Phares

Black Zone Myth Chant ‎– Mane Thecel Phares (Editions Gravat) Low Jack and Jean Carval’s Gravats label open 2015 with a killer new album from prolific psych-drone artist High Wolf under his Black Zone Myth Chant alias. ‘Mane Thecel Phares’ is a wigged-out trip thru Afro-centric, riddim-driven psychedelia, breaking down the boundaries between Sun Ra, DJ Screw, and Vox Populi! with a smoked-out, blurry vision heightening the effects already felt in his mighty ‘Straight Cassette’ LP for Winged Sun/Laidtbac - listed in many year-end lists for 2014. Mulching the vibes and fibres of celestial jazz, dub and improvised noise into eight papier mãche golems, the session regresses to a headspace of swampy psychedelia from the amorphous synth shapes and primordial pulse of ‘Belshazzar’ to the sub-conscious voices and ancient elegance of ‘If God Is Not Here’. What happens between those pillars remains a mystery, even after you’ve heard it - is ‘In The Arms of The Parcae’ footwork from an alternate dimension? Could ‘Two Stars, No Cross’ possibly be Francis Bebey’s starchild from Andromeda? Are the polytonal chorales of ‘He Evil’ attempting to communicate in a forgotten language? With your help we can begin to unravel this enigma. Please note down and let us know if you experience any irregularities in breathing, vision, appetite or speech during or after consumption…. in boomkat

µ-Ziq - XTLP

µ-Ziq - XTLP (Planet MU) In stark contrast to a large percentage of his previous work, XTLP is joyous all the way through. The twelve compositions abandon the furrow-browed quest for cutting-edge exploration exchanging it for an altogether more carefree and fun approach, with only the footwork-influenced 'Monj2' and exclusive track ‘Forger’ directly referencing any current electronic influences.  'XTEP' is full of nostalgic melody, rave romance and charm... As always, that blend of naif insouciance and eldritch oddness hits the spot like the few others. Recommended!

RAICA - Dose

RAICA - Dose (Further Records) Comentários: Further Records co-boss lady Chloe Harris presents her excellent 2nd solo album of ambient synth drone. On 'Dose' she conducts herself with minimal, uncluttered elegance over eight neatly constructed tracks. Compared with the spooling tendencies of many in the neo-kosmische realm, Reica's pieces are more buttoned up, like bubbling oddities made in a micro-brewery for those with more esoteric tastes. There's still a definite new age tendency, but one reined-in by a DJ's sense of timing and a personal, tactile feel for ambient pop sweetness that displays her great taste in music. The results sit somewhere betwee
n a lo-fi SAW II and the harmonised synth drift of Madalyn Merkey - which is a great thing in our books. Recommended. in boomkat

Paper Dollhouse - Aeonflower


**Sterling dark pop and stark ambient noise somewhere between Grouper and Vatican Shadow. Edition of 500 with tracing paper insert and download code** There's some genuinely dark magick at work in Paper Dollhouse's debut LP for Glasgow's Night School Records. The London-based duo of Nina Bosnic and Astrud Steehouder are in possession/possessed by a gothic, oneiric spirit which has previously been revealed on Jane Weaver's Bird Records - who also present a cassette version of this LP - and alongside Magpahi for Devon Folklore Tapes Vol. IV. But this is arguably their most effective invocation to date. Guided by black light they offer 10 concentric circles crossing dimensions between occult folk, cinematic techno and crushing noise scapes, calling to mind comparisons with everyone from Vatican Shadow or Prurient to Ectoplasm Girls and Grouper, but maintaining their very own silhouette against that backdrop. In a word, it's spellbinding stuff and we reckon a lot of folk are going to fall for them. in boomkat

Cakes Da Killa - #IMF

Following his last full-length, The Eulogy, which was released through Mishka Records in 2013, Brooklyn-based MC Cakes Da Killa spent 2014 dropping two mixtapes under his Hunger Pangs series. Now, kicking off 2015 properly, Cakes comes alive with his EP #IMF, just in time for Valentine's Day. The EP features five tracks of thumping electronic instrumentation that blend with spaced out, near tribal elements, providing a proper platformula for Cakes' hypnotic tales of beauty, lust, and wavey late night vibes.
