music

as the name implies…

Supruga. Post modern darkness.

I got into more aggressive music in the early 1990s, which was an interesting experience: Labeled both „heavy metal“ or „hard rock“ synonymously from the outside, those who were into this kind of acoustic entertainment used to have quite some nuanced understandings of sub genres and styles that needed to be kept well separated. Back then, as well, music often was about things such as style, attitude and techniques. We

Replicant: Neon dark dreams

Ever since Wave Gotik Treffen 2015 and some of the shows I used to see there, I’m a bit lost to music living somewhere in between post punk, minimal synth and cold wave. Starting out with some particular, incredible bands and browsing similar artists on bandcamp.com, these days my favorite and by far most important way of discovering new music, at some point I stumbled across a band massively remaining

Kalouv: Raindrops and transformations

I then and now have been writing about artists and releases on the Brazilian Sinewave netlabel, and even though I didn’t do so in quite a while, my interest in their doings hasn’t at all vanished as, however they manage to do so, Sinewave folks keep on featuring incredibly dense, interesting releases, appearing to me to be one of the best post-rock / experimental netlabels out to date. Pluvero, the

Team.Radio: post post rock?

I have to admit that somehow, by now, sinewave.com.br starts to make me wonder… I already did put down my enthusiasm about Uppsala Solemne a bit earlier, but, no matter whether listening to latest releases of Ruido/MM, Sobre A Maquina, the incredible This Lonely Crowd and a bunch of others: Most of the recent Sinewave releases are exceptionally strong, not just from a netaudio / netlabel perspective, and definitely all

Uppsala Solemne: an alternative approach to dark ambient

As some readers of this page might have experienced, I just recently happened to mostly be into netlabel music, for a bunch of different reasons, including the inability of most of nowadays „music marketing“ structures to really come up with interesting new acts and styles – which, then again, is not all too surprising in a musical world in which even „alternative“, „post rock“ or „indie“ mostly seem just genre

music to code to, #2: Blame and sounds of water

Depending upon the very mood, I am into different kinds of music throughout my (working) days, and for quite a while, all kinds of electronic stuff has been close to top my my list, including both a couple of more familiar names and stuff which might be considered pretty much „unknown“ these days, for whichever reasons. Blame definitely belongs to the latter kind of artists on my list, a band/project

music to code to, #1: noisy psilosophy

In course of finding music to listen to while working through my evenings recently, a while ago I discovered freemetalalbums.com, an astounding site providing wagon loads of legally downloadable EPs, singles and full length albums mainly featuring more or less unknown bands playing all kinds of music from dark / gothic rock to more extreme metal. And, as I managed to come up with quite some discoveries this way, I

Botany Bay: summer dreams, music noir, trippy ambiance…

Once in a while you tend to stumble across music accidentially, music which seems way out of the genres you usually deal with… and yet, it works. Something like this happened to me when discovering Botany Bay on jamendo.com, a platform I have been frequently using the last couple of years for various reasons. Reading tags like „pop“, „triphop“, „postrock“ or „folk“ weren’t really what I was looking for, but

ghostlike ambient and art: „incubi succubi“

A few days ago, while browsing archive.org I stumbled across „Incubi Succubi“ by Daina Dieva and Svart1. Somehow, this 25-minutes beast of an ambient track has caught my attention and been played quite a couple of times ever since. Initially, this track partially reminded me of Vangelis‘ incredible soundtrack to „Blade Runner“, but „Incubi Succubi“ is way more, way stronger in some respects: The course of a nights worth of
