VA - First Light

This album I like. Very much. I've been listening to it in a loop for three days straight. Oh three very unproductive days they were, and I almost went crazy at some times, but First Light helped me get around it. The sun was shining, the chill was chilling and that was all that mattered.

Out at Expansions Collective, this compilation will take you to new heights of hip-hop and urban chill, that style of music that strangely makes me want to live in the city, whereas I thought that thought would never linger in my head. Go figure.

Saxophone, piano, hip-hop, the whole finely blended and beautifully crafted.

Perfect.

Sephira - Monkey Tales

State-of-the-art deep-trance, also called deep-tagada by the true goalords of ancient times. It was made to rumble the soul from the inside with cosmic vibration that go through dimensional planes with ease to get to the one where you're at right now.

If you like that kind of music I can recommend the albums Inner Thoughts by Cabeiri and Random Friday by Solar Fields (but those aren't free mind you).

Foreign Fields - What I Kept in Hiding

I've waited long for Foreign Field's new album (well, it's a year old so not really new, let's say latest) after listening to (and enjoying) the first one, Anywhere But Where I Am. Dim-lit atmospheres, half forest, half cottage. Half river, half mountain. Half small village, half snowy park in a city. Discover here another side of Foreign Fields, a tiny little bit more pop, but in a really enjoyable way.

I can't get tired of it.

The Bandcamp link is not free, and while six dollars for a release of this quality is really almost a gift, you can also download it for free on Noisetrade  and leave a tip (if you want to). Noisetrade is another gold mine of free music, where you can find just about anything.

Special mention to the song "Little Lover", really astounding.

Chronos - Technologia

Here is an absolutely flawless album, perfect, sublime. I just cannot get tired of it although I'm really trying. And I will probably add each and every track that composes it to the psybient/psydub playlist, because they are so... You know.

Chronos is one of the few artists at Mystic Sound Records who puts his albums at a free-price, whereas in fact his talent really has no price.

I'll let you judges.

Special mention to the tracks "Planetarium" and "Swinging Satori" that make my humble mortal soul shiver.

Weekend Cult - Weekend Cult

To end this month of march in a beautiful fashion, I suggest listening to some groovy hip-hop, whaddya think ? I discovered this album when it was suggested to me while I was buying an album by Al Lover, producer of electronic and psychedelic beats. There are always nice discoveries to make when you buy something on Bandcamp, here's the proof.

It's old-school, no gangsta anywhere near here, no fat electronic beats turning our youths into savage warmongers, only rhythms, rimes, flow, poetry, subversive lyrics that do not become a boring course on morals and ethics. It goes up all at once, and it does not come down, even after the end you still feel the heat of the city in the afternoon, watching friends playing football with a tin can.

I hate tin cans.

Fortune Howl - Spectrum Analysis

This is the kind of album that will make you go like "What the hell is going on here ?!", one of the first that made me want to create a tag specially made for albums impossible to classify. Broken rhythms, noises from glasses of whiskey making love, dreamy soundscapes in the back, well, it's kind of hard to describe, so I'll let you try for yourself. Definitely worth three or four listenings before full appreciation is reached.

See you around.
