And The Bear – This Is The Darkness I Used To Tape CD (Valvolare Records)

And The Bear is quite an interesting musical outlet, entirely operated by Alexandre Manuel, a French multi-instrumental artist who has been active on the music scene since 1998.

Fixateur Externe – Disco Satan USB (Unsigned)

Here’s another dosage of Hungarian avant-garde experimentations, but this time it comes with a twist. Fixateur Externe are not strangers to these pages, and previously I had a chance to review a couple of their recordings. This material could easily pass as various artist compilation, mainly because this release represents a collection of remixes. Disco… Read More Fixateur Externe – Disco Satan USB (Unsigned)

Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

At first, I thought this was a split cassette release, but after a while, I realized it is a live collaboration between Abattoir and Satori. This material is not their first collaboration, and previously they released the album version of Megaloschemos and another collaborative cassette named Aether. Abattoir is a side project of Lorenzo Abattoir,… Read More Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

Púder & Pormeister Trió / Triste Ensemble / Noisesculptor – Unsigned 3​-​Way Split Series Volume I (Unsigned)

Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Shanyio came a long way from experimental artist to prolific avant-garde composer/multiinstrumentalist. Perhaps this Romanian artist seem like a prolific musician who releases his recordings on a nearly monthly basis, but Shanyio calculates and simultaneously works on several projects at the time. Therefore, it may appear like his albums and collaborations are popping from every… Read More Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

This material is, what I truly believe, a second full-length by this Buffalo, NY-based quartet. Despite being fully aware of all the activities surrounding Swimming Faith, this recording somehow went under the radar, but luckily, now I have a chance to write a couple of lines about it. For those who missed my previous reviews… Read More Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

Fixateur Externe – A Fekete Gong CS (Unsigned / Blastbeat Worship)

Here’s another interesting experimental recording, recently released by Unsigned and Blastbeat Worship. Like many other avant-garde outlets, Fixateur Externe are strangers to these pages, and I previously had a chance to review a couple of their releases. Fixateur Externe is more of a collective than a project, mainly because it gathers various Hungarian experimental artists… Read More Fixateur Externe – A Fekete Gong CS (Unsigned / Blastbeat Worship)

Rovar17 & The Three​-​Brained Robot – Split CS (Alien Seduction)

Here’s another experimental release worth mentioning that would be such a treat for those who’re not looking out for any particular subgenre of avant-garde music. Both outlets are exploring various experimental genres, so this material appears as diverse and unique as possible. Rovar17 is not a stranger to these pages, and I had a chance… Read More Rovar17 & The Three​-​Brained Robot – Split CS (Alien Seduction)

It’s a material that delivers freshness, uniqueness, and entertainment by simultaneously blending various aesthetics with an aim to enhance the listening experience even more. Mirages is the most-advanced recording by Kaouenn, the alter-ego of Nicola Amici, an Italian multi-instrumental artist with residence… Read More Kaouenn – Mirages LP (Various Labels)
