Sleep Clinic – Sleazy Functions: A Tribute To Peter Christopherson
Improvised expressions in regards to the passing of Peter Christopherson. Auditory grief and thanks to a true genius of the arts and its magic.
∆AIMON: a new kind of noise
Hailing from San Diego, California, ΔAIMON are becoming a duo to be reckoned with. Widely recognised as part of the growing Witch House scene, but covering the likes of Swans, and having influences like Throbbing Gristle, Coil and Foetus, amongst many others, they seem to share a close link to both noise and industrial music as well.

Connexion Bizarre Netlabel
Posted on December 26, 2011 | No CommentsWhat makes this release a definite must-have is the same reason why you visit festivals with sounds, music and sound art. Even if you don't know all this artists or there is a track you maybe don't like at the beginning, it fits the release as a whole. Exploration of artistic depths and differences, very well combined by 'His Masters Drone', Stefan Knappe.
Posted on December 26, 2011 | No CommentsCold Graey is a Russian label (or, more precisely, from Novosibirsk, Siberia) which work with extremely limited CD-R releases (57 copies) of noise, dark ambient and experimental music. After selling out, many of the releases are put up for free […]
Posted on December 26, 2011 | No CommentsPerhaps it’s the time in Seattle, or the overall feel of our age that has influenced Dreissk’s work, but one cannot help but draw parallels to post-apocalyptic or dystopian imagery and thoughts when listening to the album. And any record managing to do that is a good record in my book.
Posted on December 26, 2011 | No CommentsIt's is definitely worth the download, but the whole thing should have been recorded better. The choking frequencies on certain moments ruin the flow and atmosphere. It has its charm in some noise music, and certainly when it's recorded on tape, but with a probably laptop-based recording it's a big 'no'.
Posted on December 26, 2011 | No CommentsThe main style under which this should be categorized is a mixture between ethnic, ethereal, ritual, drone and ambient. If you are interested in the aforementioned styles, and are still missing a bit of ethnic, ethereal and ritual music in your collection, this is a great release to get.
Posted on December 26, 2011 | No CommentsTo make a long story short, an absolute 'Do Try This At Home' for ambient lovers who don't mind the progressive use of guitar and other melodic instruments, and who do know where and how ambient music started.
Posted on December 21, 2011 | No CommentsAs a whole, this may be one of the better albums released this year and a great find for those who enjoy industrial/ambient. KNO’s strength comes from their ability to write interesting, multi-layered tracks that evolve throughout their duration and keep the listening experience fresh as the track/album progresses.
Posted on December 21, 2011 | No CommentsThere are no real dull moments and the structures and modulations are impressive enough to listen to the whole composition. But if you reach the end, there is a good chance you will wonder if that was it.
Posted on December 20, 2011 | No CommentsUkkonen creates rounded, mellifluous and pulsing ambience structured (or deconstructed) with understated anomalies. “Erriapo” thaws the gap between minimal techno and deep house, swaying occasionally one direction or the other, but always maintaining a delicate fluidity, nurturing the in-between space it establishes.
