Music that transcends.

  • I nice sonic memento from the summer of '09 when Pocahaunted went from drone-a-delic to psycho-funky. Don't call it a sellout, but the music on "Island Diamonds" points to a new phase of Pocahaunted that you can dance to.

  • The cover image of Bitte Orca is a splendid illustration of telepathy. And the music is not bad either.

LOVED! 2009 reissue of this ultra-rare and forgotten album from classic Jazz musician Don Cherry. A recording from 1976, Cherry mixes it up with Indian percussionist Latif Kahn to create a mid-blowing set of funky and soulful jams. Five tracks.

The second album from Speck Mountain finds the Chicago-based duo wonderfully stepping into their own. Singer Marie-Claire Balabanian's vowels are all drawly and take their time as they're surrounded by Karl Briedeck's raga-esque guitars. This is music that is not in a hurry to get anywhere, just perfectly content to lay down some atmospheric vibes and while the hours away. A must for fans of Mazzy Star and Spiritualized.

Here's what Other Music had to say: Argentinean singer-songwriter Juana Molina is an originator. A sound pioneer. She's the only artist we know that could somehow justifiably be compared to Animal Collective, Bebel Gilberto, Bjork, Beth Orton, and Red House Painters. On her fifth full-length, "Un Dia," Molina’s voice is carried like a buoy, and her distinct, animated lyrical phrasing contributes a unique percussive element to each song.

  • Free unannounced concerts... now that's just awesome

William Basinski's "Disintegration Loops" is comprised of elegantly beautiful orchestral tape loops that he had recorded in the mid-'80s but as the tapes were being transferred to a digital master, the analogue spool began to disintegrate which ended up further enhancing the already spectral quality of the music. The music uncannily transcends time as the loops swell and fray into seeming infinity.

  • It's been a while since I've heard music like this, reminds me of early Edison Woods.

  • Ever since the soundtrack of"Last King of Scotland" I've been eager to get more African Funk into my music collection. "Nigeria Disco Funk Special: The Sound Of The Underground Lagos Dancefloor 1974-79" is my latest find.

Their music has never disappointed my deep need for quirky, left-field electronics. These two guys are blissfully out of their minds and having fun! On a serious tip, Matmos really knows how to modulate sound. Liner Notes: Arp, Korg, Roland, Waldorf, Moog, Doepfer, Suzuki Omnichord, Coupigny, EVI/Electronic Voice Instrument: all synth brands the very mention of which make vintage gear fetishists salivate. These also happen to provide the sole sound sources for Matmos’ new album. That’s right, no contact mics on scalps, mollusks, or the CNS for these recordings! Not to fear though, the same sensibility is behind the manipulation of these pre-synthesized sounds into a tasty and distinctly Matmosian dish.

Released back in March, 2008, "Beat Pyramid" has been getting played nonstop since I made this purchase last month. Only when something this hot would I buy both the MP3 download and the vinyl album. If i could describe their sound then I would say, Gang of Four meets The Rapture. Their punk-funk sound is genuine and does not reek of themed conventions. Simple. Raw and dance friendly. Buy this!

Other Music Digital Exclusive! A new collaboration between Christopher Willits and Ryuichi Sakamoto, Fennesz fans will find much to enjoy here on "Ocean Fire," but the distinction is that while its movement is still dynamic, there's a slightly less "physical" quality to the sound which brings it a more placid feeling. Each track expresses both the grandness of the ocean and some intimate space within it.

Comprised of ex-militant fighters who formed the band while serving time in Ghaddafi's rebel camps, Tinariwen are purveyors of a music called ishoumar, a trance-inducing style that's a blend of Western-influenced desert blues and traditional Tuareg song. African percussion and lots of handclaps provide an earthy rhythm that seems to sway and roll. Their eerie sound is nothing less than mesmerizing.

Normally I'm a Kim Gordon type, but I've warmed up to the music of Thurston Moore over the years. "Trees Outside the Academy " turns out to be a excellent album, it's got a atmosphere to it which works extremely well for making out during the day, or maybe as a sonic story to take on a bike ride.

Morr Music just released this compilation of unreleased and rare material in celebration of two nights of shows in Iceland. The CD features two songs each from Benni Hemm Hemm, Go Find, ISAN, Seabear, and Tarwater, and makes for a great collection of shimmering electronic pop music. Highlights include Benni Hemm Hemm's collaboration with Swedish crooner Jens Lekman and a surprisingly rocking Pavement cover ("Perfume V") by the Go Find.

This collection of Afro-funk (the 'rock' is a bit of a misnomer) goes beyond the "Africafunk", "Club Africa" and "Ouelele/Racubah" comps, into the dark continent itself (and stays there). Where those had a lot more 'Westernized' tracks (from Europeans and North Americans), "Afro-Rock" has African musicians only, recording in their own countries. Kona must have tapped a major collector of this stuff for the comp, because these tracks never made it onto the shelves of record stores outside Kinshasa, Accra or Lagos.... Re-mastered off of vinyl, mostly, out of pure necessity (most original '60s or '70s African pop master tapes were usually recorded over--the tape itself being worth more than the music [which had ephemeral market value] at the time). These obscure predecessors and followers of Fela reveal the influence of Western soul and funk in 11 tracks of fantastic musical hybrids.
