Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 2) 2016-2022

Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 2) 2016-2022 And so we enter part two of our Black Truffle feast… I open part two with a piece of incredible music. Behrman is a wonder and his compositions scratch an itch with me that rarely gets a going over. It’s timeless music that feels like it transcends all around it, yet floats in a fixed position – … Continue reading Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 2) 2016-2022

Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 1) 2016-2022

Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 1) 2016-2022 I have been a fan of the musical works of Oren Ambarchi for a long time.

Details for days are spread across these 14 pieces, adding an enchanting aural realism that … Continue reading Ora Clementi “Sylva Sylvarum”

The Repository #17: Francis Plagne

I’ve been revisiting the excellent collaboration between crys cole and Francis Plagne on Black Truffle in the past week and thought it’d be fun to dig up this interview I did with Francis back in early 2006 right around when his first album came out. He’s done so much incredible work since (speaking of collaborations, the album with Andrew Chalk is obviously wonderful). Anyway. Francis … Continue reading The Repository #17: Francis Plagne

Foxy Digitalis Mix #2: Nick Storring

Nick Storring has released fantastic albums on labels like Orange Milk, Notice, and Scissor Tail among others. Last year’s full-length, My Magic Dreams Have Lost Their Spell, is transportive, taking listeners on an emotional sonic ride through imaginary landscapes and sprawling aural vistas. It’s incredible. Next week, on July 16th, he will release his latest, Newfoundout, on the excellent mappa label. 1. Atrium Musicae de Madrid … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #2: Nick Storring
