February 4th, 2016 / Comments Off on New album from Charming Timur – So Much So Little So Little So Much / by Mog/
Remember those times in your life when you’ve met someone so special or found that place that meant so much to you? What about when you had that second meeting, second date, or second time eating that meal that tasted so wonderful? Can we honestly say that our second meetings meant the same as the first? Had the shine worn off? The first meetings are always wonderful, but the second meetings can be much of the same. When we meet the loves of our lives we feel something. Let’s think about our second dates though. Today we’re having a second date with Charming Timur.
Charming Timur, the one man musical trainwreck from Helsinki is back again. His For The Duration of Psychiatric Treatment was one of the best experimental albums of 2015. It was so delightfully weird and off the wall music very much fitting of its title. There’s always some apprehension when hearing an artist for the second time. The sophomore slump as it were, but in this case, Charming Timur has returned with a solid album that’s every bit as good, if not better, than the previous. To begin with, the songs make no sense whatsoever and that’s just so refreshing. Heavy metal guitars thunder underneath electronica melodies and beats as though that’s how it was meant to be.The drums are minimal, but powerful. The backbone is strong enough to lift a car. The vocals change with the moods. So Much So Little So Little So Much features angry growls, warbling, and straight up vocal singing. If you can picture what it would be like to see inside the head of a high functioning adult, you’ll probably have some idea as to what this album feels like. As someone who can’t shut it down, this album is perfectly imperfect and more than just a little insane.

February 4th, 2016 / Comments Off on First glow by Eensdenkend / by Mog/
Eensdenkend is a one-man-project by Adam Kalamár from Budapest, Hungary . He also has a side project, called Birds of Kosovo. In 2009 he decided to start his own project, The Grey Field Project, where he made ambient, post-rock, drone and some “noise like” songs only. After 5 TGFP albums, he changed the project name.
“This Hungarian act knows how to take over your mind with enveloping walls of sound. That’s how I’d describe this, really — there’s spacious ambient that makes you feel you’re galactic cruising, and then there’s this stuff, pulsing and undulating and cocooning you for a more comforting, close, womblike effect. Things get into the territory of guitar wall-of-sound ambient at times (“We saw the yesterday storm”) and there’s some other post-rock touches (“Daydreams of a black widow”), but to me the main appeal here is the artist’s grasp of great drone sounds (“Amber clouds”, “Deep white”). Some really cutting edge ambient drone sound art is to be found here.”

February 3rd, 2016 / Comments Off on New album from ..::DLRR::.. – Mutacionisme / by Mog/
..::DLRR::.. is a sound artist and experimental musician that enjoys playing around with echos and reverbs and distortions and any other weird sound he might come to find in life. Its first album of the year is titled “Mutacionisme” and explores the fields of ambient, drone, noise, and guitar improvisation following the styles of Fear Falls Burning, Nadja, Final, Fennesz, Aidan Baker, Dirk Serries, Boris, and a million other acts and artists.
Mutacionisme is a failed experiment. A chain reaction generated inside Nuclear Reactor number 4. Mutacionisme is born from a series of unexpected improvisations which, without taking any kind of predetermined context/concept, little by little started to take its own form, its own shape, it’s own meaning, almost like an organic beign, just like its name, like a weird mutation of a quiet echo, stuck deep inside the subconscious of humanity.
