Dirk Geiger – Second Life (2011)

Second life… half life… ain’t life at all? Difficult to be extremely precise, we’re living kind of interesting times and well, interesting is also the music of Dirk Geiger and this collection of remixes by 14 talented electronic artists, so this is quite an opportunity and we’ve got both: the interesting universe of Geiger, but also the reinterpretation of some fellow electronic artists. Even further, you can download also for free – “name your price” (I’m priceless! 😀 ) – this release from the Tympanik Audio’s official web site.
Geiger’s world is gloomy and contorted, subtle dark layers and distorted glitcherings are bring to the surface a dark, but pulsing universe. This is a post-industrial area of the music filled with cinematic soundscapes, post-psychedelia and percussive noises, a world of modern isolation and cold desperation. Still, Geiger is full of colors and life, he’s music is intelligently build and subtly driven, groovy and vibeful merging of hard and smooth counterparts. Read more Dirk Geiger – Second Life (2011)

Skinny Puppy – HanDover (2011)

From the classy industrial area slipping to the post-industrial and more cinematic, dark electronic segment of music, Skinny Puppy, the pioneer Canadian band, remains one of the leading motors of the genre. Al Jourgensen of Ministry was part of the band back in 1989, also Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly, Noise Unit, etc as many other famous figures contributed to this band since their formation in 1982 and till now. The band almost disbanded in 1995 when drugs and internal conflicts and ultimately death strikes the band which moved from the safety of Vancouver to the temptations of Malibu, but they managed to regroup after a five year gap and since 2000 Nivek Ogre (vocals) and cEvin Key (synthesizer, guitar, bass guitar, drums) reunited and performed live extensively.
Mark Walk (keyboards, synthesizer, guitar) joined in 2003 and in 2004 they released the ninth studio album entitled “The Greater Wrong of the Right”, followed in 2007 by the album “Mythmaker”. “HanDover”, the upcoming eleventh studio album of the band will be officially released on October 25, 2011 in the United States and an October 28, 2011 in Europe.

Planningtorock – W (2011)

Janine Rostron, Berlin based, London born, musician/conceptual-artist and record label owner, has been flirting with a wider audience via her LCD Soundsystem opening slot and become a frequent collaborator of The Knife. She’s back now with her second full-length album, “W” and her smooth, but gloomy explorations of tense rhythms and quite particular timbre keyboard, classic instruments and shady, electric and electrifying layers, floating vocals merged into her unique, sparkling sound.
Classically trained on the violin from the age of eight, Janine Rostron developed a passion for strings. That same passion can be heard in her infamous pizzicato bass styles with plucked string production blended perfectly with electric mix of barrelhouse boogie-woogie pianos, xylophone trills, honkytonk horn sleaze, bluesy growls and creepy coos.

The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation – Anthropomorphic (2011)

The improvising alter ego of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble , The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation delivering one hour of diving into the shady, gloomy, suggestive world of neo-jazz and cinematic meltdown.
Gideon Kiers, Jason Köhnen, Charlotte Cegarra, Hilary Jeffery, Eelco Bosman, Nina Hitz, and Sarah Anderson and various interchanging guest musicians including Ron Goris, following “Doomjazz Future Corpse!” and “Succubus”, “Anthropomorphic” is the third released session of TMFDC.
If for some, TKDE may sounds pretty strange, TMFDC it’s one step further. This may be the fourth dimension Doomjazz, a doorway to a dark, but sparking universe made of noises, gloomy textures and vibrating improvisations in the best avant-garde tradition of free jazz. As they describe it: “take a piece of THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA’s cinematic jazz, a dash of THE BROADWAY PROJECT’s dark/noir, a hint of AMON TOBIN’s twisted mutant jazz and a little FREEFORM ARKESTRA orchestral ambience. Throw in a minipinch of DJ SHADOW and MAJOR FORCE WEST, and a good dose of Planet Mu-ism and you’re pretty much there.” Read more The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation – Anthropomorphic (2011)

Moby – Destroyed (2011)

“All unattended luggage will be destroyed.” Moby’s flight was delayed on the LaGuardia Airport, so he decided to explore the airport. On a corridor he saw an electronic sign that said “all unattended luggage will be destroyed”, and since the sign could only fit one word at a time, he waited until the word “destroyed” appeared and took a snap-shot. The tenth studio album by Moby will be released on May 16, 2011 and it contains 15 brand new songs. Some critics already labeled as Moby’s worst album up to date, but I think it’s just once again a different path which Moby chosen to explore. “Destroyed” is like a series of snap-shots of contemporary ambiental/electronic music. Actually I miss myself a few nervous-breakdowns, some hardcore explosions, a few noisy turns, but I’m also realistic enough to don’t expect no more “That’s When I Reach for My Revolver” from Moby.

Buckethead – Spinal Clock (2010)

Tipul ăsta e dus. E irecuperabil. Dacă după accidentul suferit anul acesta cel puţin fizic se recuperează vizibil, la „mansardă” este neschimbat. Şi e bine, e bine aşa. Salvatorul găinilor din Kentucky se joacă şi de cele mai multe ori din joaca aceasta ne alegem şi noi cu câte o călătorie sonoră de calitate.
Anul trecut v-am povestit despre el şi cele 4 (!) albume scoase (vezi AICI), anul acesta a scos un album electro-acustic intitulat „Shadows Between the Sky” lansat în februarie, apoi şi-a făcut revenirea de după accident cu primul set din cele 5 preconizate ale proiectului alături de Bryan “Brain” Mantia şi Melissa Reese, „Best Regards”, un set de 5 CD-uri şi o incursiune într-o lume viu colorată a muzicii experimentale.
„Spinal Clock” este tot un experiment acustic, Brian Carroll alias Buckethead şi-a atârnat chitara-n cui şi a luat banjoul la frecat. A rezultat Read more Buckethead – Spinal Clock (2010)
