Hedflux - In Retrospect

Here's an album that is almost impossible not to like. Just pressing play means that you want to pump up the atmosphere, you want to dance, to move, to wiggle-jiggle, to make light come out of your friends eyes as you say to them "here, listen to this one, I found it on La Mojoteque, it's amazing".

You can also use it to test your sound system, so as to see if it can go the distance.

Hedflux is a london-based producer that specialises in what we'll call psychedelic techno with a touch of electronifying vibes and a twist of technotronic voltage power. To say the least, it moves, it bumps, it goes in all directions, and there is a great probability that you will find yourself doing the same thing in less than a minute.

Best regards.

Aligning Minds - My Heart is Love

My Heart is Love. Is there anything else to say ?

This one sets out very slow, with a track that is almost pure ambient and that will probably deter some non-aficionados, and grapple some others. But it changes pretty quick, as the second tracks plays with deep shifting basslines and heralds the following sounds in a more dubby, downtempo, deep and dreamy, with spacey rhytmics, effects and atmosphere.

Some tracks feel like a Metroid stage theme.

Yayati - 000

It's been three or four weeks since I wanted to post this one, I lost count, and it's raining outside, so I guess now is the time.

The first thing I did when I pressed play was wondering where the hell I was, if it was present, past of future, if I was sitting, laying or standing. It reminded me of a certain period when I used the tag "Mushtronic" for weird tunes with broken rhythms and strange atmospheres.

Feels like a mix between Boards of Canada, Auditive Escape and a certain touch of je ne sais quoi.

Another album that will not please everybody, but what the hell. FAAFWIT.

Torley - Glitch Piano

"Not long ago, in a parallel universe fairly, fairly close... humans imported a master race of sentient pianos through spacetime portals, using the instruments as labor-beasts and war-weapons. Predictably, these magnificent creatures rebelled and bass'ed civilization, enslaving the masses like the un-self-actualized lowminds they broadly are.

The contained aurelics (sonic artifacts) are historical evidence of such a traumatic time, and oddly, we detected halos of rich emotional spectrum — including loveliness and humorosity — amidst the runes".

I wonder, what could I possibly tell or say to broaden the information you now possess on this album ?

Deeply relaxing, while relating strange and terrible events which took place in another dimension, Glitch Piano is an album that must be taken slow, but not lightly. With each tracks the whole canvas evolves.

Take your time, don't rush in, it's long, but consider the album in its entirety.

See you in another world.

Carl Brown - About Time

It has been a while since that album's been lingering in my "to write about" folder. It's just so intricate and special that for a long time I couldn't really decide what to write.

This is a remix album, remixes from the tracks of Time Release, a previous album which, oddly enough, isn't available for the moment.

Partly dream, partly gloomy wanderings in the darkest hour of night, or in a tramway full of zombies, you choose whichever you'd like this album to be.

If you like weird and/or beautiful music, just press play and enjoy. If you don't, well, what are you doing here in the first place ?

See you around.

By the way, happy new year to all of you and to your music-craving friends !

Fellwoods - Wulfram

This album's cover has been my desktop wallpaper for so long... But why the hell didn't I post it here in the first place ?

It is a wrong I'll try to right, today. I love the sound of this album, like a colony of ants where the ants are small but very talented rock bands. This quatuor from Portland, Oregon gives us their own particular blend of psych-rock with a touch of metallic scent and a hint of garage.

Enjoyably nervous, entirely filled with rock'n'roll, Wulfram takes its roots in a strange mystical universe where druids can shapeshift and speak to animals during blood moons, an atmosphere that reminds me of old-school metal albums from the 60's and 70's. Just add some flaming guitar licks and the voice of the lich king's cousin and there you have it.

I'll let you try yourself.

See you around.
