Review: Meridian Brothers – El Advenimiento Del Castillo Mujer

Bleating clarinets, spindles of plucked strings and clunky mallet percussion prop up little clusters of abstract folk. Originally released in 2006, rightfully repressed on Discrepant.

Review: Stuart Chalmers – Imaginary Musicks Vol. 5

Lonely tape extracts brought into rhythmic and atmospheric unity.

Review: Jessica Pavone – Silent Spills

Simple gestures for viola and FX. An ode to the nourishment of the present tense.

Review: Lärmshutz – Sleepcycles

Loose, often drowsy improvisation from Utrecht, using graphical representations of sleep measurements as a score.

Review: Dan O’Connor – IN/EX

17 short trumpet pieces exploring all the potential pathways of breath.

Review: Franck Vigroux – Rapport sur le Désordre

Industry, biomechanics, ubiquity. An ode to technological extremity.

A compilation of curious and wonderful sound art from across the Middle East, curated by Dubai-centred sound art collective, Tse Tse Fly.

Review: Exhaustion/Wanders – II

Shell-shocked improvisation from Australian trio Exhaustion, in collaboration with saxophonist Kris Wanders.
