Erasers “Distance”

At only six tracks and thirty minutes long, Erasers latest release, Distance, has the impressive feel of something altogether much more gatefold length. Simultaneously seeming like it’s being broadcast from the flight of something delicately insectoid that’s pulling back to see the wide shot and still sounding like it’s being played by a selection of the chunkiest synths from the crustiest manual, Distance is the duo’s continuing kosmische … Continue reading Erasers “Distance”

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.40: December 2, 2022

It’s the first Friday of the month, so that means it is BC day, of course. Last one of the year. Last one forever? Who knows. But I’ve got a new Charlatan album out called Earth Games, and it’s a course alteration for the project. It’s a record I’m incredibly proud of, and a little terrified of having it out in the world since it feels … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.40: December 2, 2022

Video Premiere: Matt McBane and Sandbox Percussion “Bathymetry 6 – Surface”

With the latest video from their recent album, Bathymetry, Matt McBane and Sandbox Percussion encase listeners within a crystalline soundworld on “Surface.” Textural movements glide through clear space, the only hints of friction coming in the interactive silhouettes between ASMR-infused scrapes and the bass echoes of a Moog synthesizer. For music so spacious, the detailed interactions become intimate focal points that bring a gentle warmth to … Continue reading Video Premiere: Matt McBane and Sandbox Percussion “Bathymetry 6 – Surface”

Lujo Asiático “After Ashram”

Argentina’s Lujo Asiático thread an interdimensional divide on the lush meditations of After Ashram. Musically diverse but always simmering with one hand touching the cosmos, the group spends the album’s runtime traversing expansive sonic terrain. Sitar, saxophone, synths, vocals, and a 100+-year-old harmonium open a welcoming portal beyond consciousness. Infused with aqueous field recordings, from calming ocean waves to ethereal river flows, After Ashram lifts off from the … Continue reading Lujo Asiático “After Ashram”

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #61: Corntuth

I wrote about Corntuth’s lovely new album, Letters to My Robot Son, in last week’s Capsule Garden, and I highly recommend giving it a listen. His mix for Foxy Digitalis collects music that inspired the album; with the added context, new layers and realizations about it come into view. Here’s what Corntuth has to say about the mix: This is a mix of some of the material … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #61: Corntuth

Video Premiere: loscil // Lawrence English “Violet”

Pulling the curtain back on this fantastic new collaboration from two all-timers reveals a methodic approach to creating restrained grandeur. Using a collection of recordings from a century-old pipe organ in Brisbane, Australia, Scott Morgan (aka loscil) and Lawrence English embark headfirst on a trip of emotive electronic pathways. Geometric patterns in the video move with a calm purpose, drawing shapes around the melancholic swells … Continue reading Video Premiere: loscil // Lawrence English “Violet”

øjeRum “Vågnende Jeg Ser De Døde”

Inside the fragile walls of “Vågnende Jeg Ser De Døde,” midnight is a distant beacon stuck in a world of haze. øjeRum spins a calm facade across the decaying spaces beneath wistful piano arrangements and sonic interference. Strings dance behind glass at the periphery, leaving us wondering if our minds have gone or if these melancholic silhouettes exist? Everything here is held together by gossamer … Continue reading øjeRum “Vågnende Jeg Ser De Døde”
