Sonopictorial - Macrosketching

You like psytrance ? You do ? Me too ! You know, I think that, maybe, everybody actually does like psytrance but some are afraid of what they could find inside... Just maybe...

It's been a while since I wanted to post this album. There are lots and lots of psytrance albums, the richest are usually compilations with different styles and subgenres, but when you find an album from one artist with a style that won't bore you even after dozens of listenings, you know you've found something exceptional.

Sonopictorial's music is upbeat, progressive and bouncy, taking its time to travel through the galaxy.

And yes, it's possible to spend days on Ektoplazm listening to album after album to find small treasures like this one that spend their time waiting for us to lend an attentive ear.

So let's do this, download this album on Ektoplazm.

VA - Down The Fractal Dimension

If you love those hour-long psybient/psydub compilations containing lots of tracks from various artists as much as I do (and I bet you do), you will have the sudden need to download this one and put it in good place in your "must listen daily" folder.

This release is the result of two Greek netlabels, Irrespective Music Minds and Liquid Seed, colliding into one musical rimless cube of psychedelic dark matter. Ten tracks worth of psybient and psydub.

You can get the album on Ektoplazm.
Feel free, feel the music.

The Active Listener - The First Acid Folk Sampler

Here's a compilation that goes really well with the present season. The middle of autumn, leaves falling, beautiful colors, mushrooms popping up everywhere. Time to get the cows in the barn and to listen to a bit of acid-folk.

Acid-folk ? Well it's a blend of musical influences between folk and psychedelic rock. As always, the frontier between those musical styles is very blurry, and we like it that way don't we ? Everything does not hinges on the chords and rhythms used.

A great deal of what defines a music genre also rests on the attitude of the band (during live performances for example), on the lyrics, the influences, the references and the choice of the instruments used (the mellotron is typical of progressive and psychedelic rock, for instance).

What The Active Listener gives to us once more here is a compilation of a great number of quality, whimsical dreamy tracks, in a very specific style.

May they live long and prosper.

Lemon Future - Tin Man

On the Keats Collective netlabel, you can find a bit of everything. And sometimes things so unusual that you don't even know how to tag them to be sure people can find them or know what you mean, well... you know what I mean.

Future Lemon's Tin Man is going in all directions. It will soothe some people, some other will dance, other will just, you know, chill. Prickly beats, synth waves standing between the sublime and the kitsch, it reminds me of a distant past when I used to listen only that kind of music, when I was a little cake.

Be sure to give it two or three chances. At first I wasn't really convinced that it was that good, but now that I've listened to the whole release three or four times, I love it.

Believe, I do.

The Stormalongs - Scherzophrenic

Remember The Stormalongs ?
I've talked about them before with the album They Call Me Destruction. Well here they are back again with another, still a bit short (and when it's good it's even shorter) but a well-crafted blend of crunchy garage-indie rock with a bluesy atmosphere that peeks out its head here and there.

Very good rock'n'roll release if you ask me. And free-priced above all. As I would advise with all the young bands that make free-priced releases, give a little something, even if it's not much, every little bit helps them making more music in the future and keeping it free of the fetters of big labels.

I'll leave you with them now, good listening.

Panda Dub - Psychotic Symphony

Look ! Listen ! This album from Panda Dub is all you ever wanted to end the day with a smile on your lips. In truth be told.

Intelligent rhythms (and they have feelings too), beautiful instrumentals resting on powerful basslines gently tearing the walls apart, a perfect blend of psy and dub, almost an epitome that you can show to your heathen friends asking "psidob ? wadesda psidob ?"

Let yourself go, forget drugs and alcohol. Bask in Panda Dub's enchanting music from beginning to end.

Cya, lol.
