Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is London-based artist Danny Currie's 3rd release of 2017.

Field recordings of his coastal hometown are merged with spectral guitars and washes of electronic noise to create a droning ambient panorama which seems to crest and recede like the Irish Sea heard in those same field recordings.

Released on his own Anschauen Records, Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey follows January's 'Verschollene EP' (Spheredelic Records), and 'Covers 2017' - a Soundcloud release of cover tracks.

Verschollene EP is Shock of Daylight’s 4th and most ambitious release. The tracks stretch longer, spanning more genres than before, with minimal techno, ambient noise, and modern classical influences standing out.

Despite the complex blend of styles the tracks themselves are simple and focused, with often a single figure or concept spun out to its conclusion, clearly drawing inspiration from the ambient work of artists like Brian Eno and William Basinski, as well as proto-electro/krautrockers like Cluster, Harmonia and Neu!

Soundscape Exploration: Binondo by Escuri

2016-10-12 01:00:40 UTC

Sticker

Escuri has been actively producing and performing experimental music in the Philippines.  He released several EP which include Parallel Worlds (2013), a compilation of avant-garde analog sound works which took inspiration from the literary works of Haruki Murakami and Kobo Abe; Coloring Book (2015), a collection of purely digital audio works; and ORBIT21 (2016), a collaborative sound work with music producers from California, UK, Texas, Netherlands and London.  

His musical works has been featured in local radio stations and publication. His current musical project involves performing electronic music in various settings (public, semi-public and private spaces) in an attempt to explore how these physical spaces contribute to and/or affect sound and performance. In addition, the project also explores how synthetic sounds interact with natural sounds and how this interaction affect the binaural perception of the listeners . Other on-going projects include field recordings with visual artists .

He is part of Pixel Collective, a local group of emerging digital/electronic/analog/lo-fi musicians; and Buwan Buwan Collective, a record label dedicated to unearthing substantial electronic art forms. 

A collaboration Purveyr and adidas Originals.

Around August 2016, they roamed around the streets of Escolta, Philippines and did a soundwalk.

This opportunity paved way in exploring field recordings. In the process, they recorded ambient sounds and collaborated with the locals by asking them to do rhythmic beats using familiar objects (coins, hammer, basketball and even coffee machine!)

Like photography, music also has the power to capture a moment, make it eternal and deliver euphoria and nostalgic memories.


Genre : chillwave, hip-hop, electro-math, contemporary

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

2016-10-06 00:00:00 UTC

Patcus

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” is Patkus’ third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015’s “Colors.” Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” mirrors Patkus’ journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
