O​.​H​.​E. [action] b​/​w R​.​I​.​FF. [minox] (Cassingle #33)

Categories: Releases

Multidisciplinary artist Andreas Gogol first caught our attention with his stunning vocal performances on Guido Möbius‘s album ‘Gebirge’ (Karaoke Kalk, 2009), even if he had been present in the experimental music scene way longer, for example with his album ‘Gorymaaz’, released on A-Musik in 2005. 

On this cassette single, Gogol appears under the YOCKO O.NE feat. prinz-ip moniker, offering two quite diverse tracks: 

On O.H.E. [action], Gogol takes his funky, dadaesque vocals one step further by bending time and space and chopping things up while it seems as if at the same time a weird entertainer (Onkel Bepy?) looses control over his organ and its rhythm machine. A feast for the ears. 

R.I.FF. [minox], on the other hand, points more to the other facet of agogol: That of the experimental filmmaker, who here perhaps contributes part of a soundtrack to a neo-noir style film he has not yet released. Supposedly you never heard an accordion that dark.

Soundtrack and Marine (Cassingle #31) by <a href="https://superpolar.bandcamp.com/">Goodparley x Shreddies</a>

Categories: Releases

Goodparley (Oli Richards) is a formerly Cardiff now London (UK) based musician. His sounds are largely based around improvised ambient guitar loops and textures, manipulated in real-time using various modulating effects to create inherently experimental soundscapes. 

Shreddies is the alias and solo project of Welsh musician, Josh Dickins. He also runs the cassette label New Haven Tapes. 

Label maker and SPT COO bleed Air said,”This is Experimental Pop at its best.” 

“While ‘Soundtrack for a Hummingbird’ with its gentle melodies indeed feels like pop, ‘Marine Blue’ shows the more experimental side of the two musicians and producers, from whom we will certainly hear more in the future,” SPT Marketing Assistant Robin Barnick added.

Wholely Moley (Cassingle #32) by Von Heuser

Categories: Releases

While A side Wholely Molely has a rather friendly, almost Stereolab-esque key, the B-side shows the abysses of a Covid Lockdown with its dark, rumbling facets. Two very diverse sides of Ambient.

Etudes Vol. 1 by Petridisch & VI by five Bubble criteria (Release date: 2 Sept 22)

Categories: Releases

Beyond happy to welcome Petridisch to the superpolar Taïps artist roster. Besides his musical output, Thor is known for running the fish prints label and his involvement in Ilya S’s I Heart Noise  ihrtn.net (until 2020). Both are an intrinsic part of the Boston underground. I sincerely hope that you will be as captivated by Petridisch’s (anti-)etudes as much as I am. Contemporary classical? Minimal music? Maybe, but certainly the Petridisch way: 

Etudes Vol. 1 (C-20), a red transparent C-20 EP featuring six tracks, is yours for 6.50 €. Please also do read Petridisch’s extensive and very interesting liner notes.

Today’s other (pre-)release of the day is five Bubble criteria’s VI. It is, or better: has become a side project of bleed Air. VI could actually have been a bleed Air album, but it somehow drifted away from the usually more experimental (vintage) electronic approach during the recording process … and features some rather longform tracks built with experimental guitar (mainly the Fender Jaguar Baritone VI – hence the title), sparse analogue electronics, tape effects and spoken word in various forms, thanks to the always amazing Chip Perkins and a first appearance in this regard by Robin Barnick. Even Modelbau’s there, kindly letting me use one of his recordings for ‘Aether Aleatorica‘.

VI, a beautiful fosfo orange, transparent C-31 album is yours for 7.50 € + postage.

LLWCHほこり – AURՈսկի

Categories: Releases

LLWCHほこり says:

15 slushwave interpretations of Carnedd Aur’s greatest hits, to further examine a long-held belief that everything sounds better when it’s slowed down. 

Original material recorded between 2019 and 2022 and released via superpolar Taïps, Wormhole World and Exotic Spresm. These versions created June 2022, after everyone else had gone to bed. 

This compilation released in conjunction with 773773773.

bleed Air says:

Moreover, Llwch and I had this – admittedly absurd – thought: 

How about – in theory – if people bought four blank C60 cassettes, dubbed them and printed the J-Cards themselves? So just in case someone should have this in mind, print-ready J-Card files + simple instructions are part of the download. 

All income will be donated to  wrexham.foodbank.org.uk
