Kaminanda - Gateways of Consciousness

I want to share an immediate discovery with you. While listening to a random psybient playlist on Youtube I stumbled by chance on Kaminanda. It was such an intense music that I thought "if only it was free !" and it just happens to be so !

So here's the plan : let's turn down the volume of everything else, download this completely free album on Ektoplazm and then play it any way we like, but on a good sound system. Then let's listen. Of course I could say the same for everything I share here but I know it is quite an act of faith to turn down one's own music to listen to something else, something yet to be known. I trust your musical passion for that.

Here's the link to hear this wonderful piece.

And here's a preview if you're not convinced :

Pretty Lights - Filling Up The City Skies

Pretty Light's vibrating funky electronic music is always a good choice, whatever the situation, be it a party, a birthday, a burial or a farewell drink. Rhythms are intelligent, well crafted, the instrumentals are perfectly executed and above all, it is completely free via Pretty Light's website, putting it out of the commercial music sphere

Here's the plan : there are two CD's worth more than twenty tracks of pure delight, so it would be great to donate, right ? For that you need a Paypal account. You don't have one and you don't want to ? Well I understand, but you can still download the albums, share them a lot, and "show some love" (as some would say it) on his Facebook Page or in the comments on his website, it's always great for the artist to get some feedback on his work.

Here are the secret keys to these little treasures :
- Pretty Lights' Website
- Download and stream the first CD
- Download and stream the second CD
- Pretty Lights' Facebook Page

Beaumont Livingston - Heavens & Fantasies

Seems like the italians like stoner rock and metal, it is very clear now. I recently posted an article about Acid Cosmonaut Records, an italian label specialised in stoner and heavy-psych music ; here is Beaumont Livingston, an italian band not produced by ACR but creating quality heavy psych, very heavy in fact. The walls vibrate, the headphones too. It does what it's meant to do.

Note that this album has been released in 2012, and it's still free, so there is a good chance that it will stay this way, in fact they just confirmed that to me, and they are working on a second album, Cain's Reign, stay tuned !

My Kind of Karma - Sweet, Wild Life

What I like in free music is that you sometimes come across artists who could easily lead a successful international carreer, but prefer to begin slowly with self-produced free music. My Kind of Karma is just like that. You can almost hear their music coming from the radio station on a sunday afternoon, a sweet folk that sometimes crosses with reggae on Shoot Your Man and Disrespect, bits of banjo and ukulele, and wild life.

Press play.

KOGNITIF - MONOMETRIC

Sometimes you just wander here or there and stumble by chance on something made of pure genius. By you I mean me, and by something made of pure genius I mean MONOMETRIC by KOGNITIF. Yes I am yelling a bit, but that is just to be sure that you understand the exceptional artist hiding behind this seemingly simple name. Juicy trip-hop, intelligent rhythmics and little surprising musical details. Coming from the far away land of France, KOGNITIF puts everything you need to tickle the musical cortex lobe (no pun intended) of your friends. I did, lots of times, and it worked perfectly.

I also decided to put lots of new tags on the blog. That will get things altogether more complex and simpler. The connoisseurs will be able to get where they want faster, and there will still be more general terms for the others.


Cheers and hear you next time.
