MP3: Splashgirl - Creature of light

When your bassist is also billed as "drone commander", I'm pretty much sold from the get-go. continues to champion acts that occupy the peculiar space of "drone jazz" -- see also Huntsville or the likewise excellent V. Sjöberg New Jazz Ensemble whose 2010 album "Lover man" was a serious sleeper hit -- and Splashgirl is yet another exemplary example of the genre. Unlike the stereotypical notion of jazz being focused on the individual virtuoso or even the lock-step ensemble arrangements of a big band, this is music that is primarily obsessed with mood and feeling. Dynamics, texture and space are key. More and more I'm finding this to be my go-to music when I can't decide what else to listen to as it's always perfect.

Hubro to release new album from 1982

Coming soon via , "Pintura", the sophomore album from Norwegian improvised chamber act 1982, an ensemble consisting of harmonium, drums and Hardanger fiddle:
Considering 's other stellar recent releases (see: Splashgirl, Huntsville), I have to say that I'm extremely excited to hear this.

MP3: Huntsville - For flowers, cars and merry wars

Love, love love Huntsville and can listen to them pretty much endlessly. Their music lends itself to such applications very easily in fact. In the same way that Vladislav Delay with Moritz von Oswald Trio explores the sounds of minimalist drone/techno as a live band, so does Huntsville; albeit with a slightly more accentuated acoustic/jazz bent and less of the cold dubbiness. While active listening can be quite rewarding, I prefer to turn it up and let it effortlessly drift by. Before you realize it, this song (the title track of the band's latest album) will have passed you by and you'll be left wondering where the last 19 minutes went.

Huntsville - For flowers, cars and merry wars

MP3: Autodafeh - Stompers

I'm kind of obsessed with this song right now. It's not new, but it's new to me and I stumbled across it while falling down an extended EBM wormhole in my possibly misguided attempt to investigate new Swedish music of that genre. I say "misguided" because as much as I enjoy this stuff when it's done well, so so so SO much of it is absolute garbage and I've been let down too many times. Then there's the fact that if you get too self-conscious about how truly goofy this stuff can be -- for instance, I can think of at least three tunes that rip off Front 242's bounty Hunter motif in their classic "HeadHunter" -- it's very easy to write it off, but let's not go there. It's aggressive dance music, you should expect a certain amount of lunkheadedness. Autodafeh go the extra mile by demanding you to MOVE. The rhythmic heavy breathing is the icing on the cake. Turn it up and pretend you're this guy.
