Lofter – Ulcer CS EP (Cherub Dream Records)

It’s always encouraging to see how some underground record labels are growing rapidly fast. Most artists would have a hard time managing publishing and the logistics of their releases without immense help from these record labels. Cherub Dream Records is one of those independent record labels that are evolving fast without losing on consistency and… Read More Lofter – Ulcer CS EP (Cherub Dream Records)

Here’s another treat for all the admirers of experimental music. Vinylized represents a special edition curated by 4mg Records, a non-profit label that releases underground electronic music on vinyl and cassettes.

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. Since his beginnings, Alexandre participated as a musician in several groups, such as Hourplug, Am I Right, and The Quiet Collective, mainly by being a vocalist or… Read More And The Bear – This Is The Darkness I Used To Tape CD (Valvolare Records)

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)

Here’s another interesting experimental release, which is also one of the latest published by the Unsigned, an avant-garde music label from Budapest, Hungary. Just as the vast portion of their previous releases, Unsigned follow some principles by releasing music on cassettes or compact discs. This time, I am dealing with a split cassette release between… Read More 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)
