immemorial: Jettisoned on a far away island, rain is pouring down like hell, the sky is dark, and all you hear is a roar. You jump into a whirlpool of static haze and begin to drown. You forget where you're from, where you are - all you know is that you need to keep swimming down; down into the abyss. You keep diving deeper and deeper, and as you finally see the light the last shred of your humanity is torn away and everything goes white. Bells ring your last goodbye.

generative: The aftermath, the absence of senses. You open your eyes and find your daydream anything but. The indescribable surrounds you from all directions. You float out into a vast plain of neither matter nor energy. Constraints are nonexistent and as you're thrust upward by an unknown force; you know that you will keep floating forever.

"the geometrie of our lost cause" - the first release from Tyler Etters, is split into two 15 minutes songs and released on digital and cassette. Listen to the first track and it's easy to understand why the artist chose this imperfect medium for the physical release. The album has a timeless quality to it. It breathes and has a soul. The first piece, "immemorial" is an ever-changing semi-ambient track that feels very introverted, almost like Tyler is searching for something within himself. The second piece, "generative," is an experiment in algorithmically generated music. Tyler meticulously bounced down 100 different versions of "generative" to cassette tape. As cassettes are purchased, the correlating versions of "generative" become unlocked for everyone else to download. Tyler Etters' first release is a beautiful display of how electronic music can still be sincere and uninhibited. Recommended for fans of Brian Eno, Tim Hecker, and GY!BE.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you up for some dark music, dark as in pitch black ambient and obscure analog drift [ Tyler Etters ] might just be the right click. The intense atmosphere of heavy droning, and most of all the soft and dense layers that whips all your senses slowly and achingly, [ The Geometrie Of Our Lost Cause ] is a 30 minutes listen through two movements and is more of a ride through a broken landscape combining mainly elements of ambient and minimal tunes. I never thought I'd say this but released on tapes actually is a bonus point for this music as it makes the sound even more original with a colossal power. Check it out guys this is brilliant one.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
