“cover”ed by Locura. :)

Oh well… being so busy writing about this and that (and, most of the time it seems, nothing) these days, I almost forgot something maybe really worth mentioning: A while ago, Australian death metal band Locura has chosen one of my older works still hosted on Flickr to be used as inner-sleeve artwork on their

parallel fronts…

Well, haven’t been writing about music in ages; not that the last weeks were lacking good releases, but… oh well, maybe I was just lazy. 😉 However a while ago some kind soul on last.fm told me to have an eye / ear on the “On The Parallel Front” album, an online sampler obviously created

Neikka RPM: Electronic Serpents…

Thanks to a CD compilation provided by their record company (“Sounds From The Matrix 004”), I just recently got to know the music of New York based electronic / industrial act Neikka RPM. Taking a deeper dive listening to their “Rise Of The 13th Serpent” album, I had to find out that this project does

Celluloide: return of the 1980s synths?

Some days earlier, I just stumbled across ‘words once said’, the debut album by French electronic / synth-pop group Celluloide. And I wonder what’s all the big thing about so-called “future pop”, again: Celluloide perfectly know how to create rather old-school electronic music, mostly using analog synthesizers and sound patterns that might make you remember

free music for free people

Sometimes there’s still hope: Even while nowadays people seem to have agreed upon the idea that web-shops “selling music online” have to lock down content they sell using some sort of DRM to prevent users from “illegally using” music they bought there (which ends up with shops like Apple’s iTunes music store where to buy

electric passengers: Jordan Reyne

Following several deviations through the world of music from various parts of the world, I ended up astoundingly listening to “Passenger” by Jordan Reyne. And still I am amazed by this trip through worlds, through noises and melodies and fragments of both electronic and organic origin, by an incredibly dense release by a very talented

Unearthing Machinery: White Nois Stasis

Music for all those who dare to go beyond what is being sold in (online) music stores: “The Garden Of Unearthed Machines” by White Nois Stasis is another great piece of net audio released under a CreativeCommons license and available on archive.org, another manifestation of original electronic music, yet somewhat different to what you’re probably
