Dzhavanshir Kuliyev - I'll have you thrown into a tiger's cage!

From the soundtrack "Ashik Kerib" by the director, Sergei Paradjanov in Armenia. I am taken aback by distinctive experimental tribal folk as if it is combined ethnic music in Azerbaijan with tape music.

Yuri Morozov - Human Extinction

The album released in 1979 by a psychedelic guitarist like Jimi Hendrix in USSR is acid electronic music which I can't wholly predict the direction. I'm surprised such free music was created under the communist regime in USSR.

Baccille - Howl, Youth Pigs

From the tape released by the Dutch labe, Zimbo tapes in 1982. Weird minimal music which the distorted percussion as if it is effected like dub is endlessly being beat.

Primal Scream - Screamadelica

The uncommon album which they smoothly took in trendy music, ambient or house at that time, also produced overwhelmingly their originality, and succeeded in being released from the spell of the age. The album of Primal Scream you should listen to is this work and  "Vanishing Point".

Jon Mueller - Hearts

From the album by the percussionist who wandered from Pele to Volcano Choir etc. Minimal like Terry Riley meets Jajouka which combine the continuous beats of the drum which remind us thrash metal with a male chorus like esoteric Buddhism is full of the feeling of trance as if we go mad.

New Nambu (9) “Futo〜 Who was Hirohito Koyama?”


The review of the event organized at <Proto Theater> ( in Shinjuku district Takadanobaba ) 

 不図  is a word we read “Futo”. It means “unintended”. This strange name project was planned to mourn for the person called Mr. Hirohito Koyama. I guess most people can’t remind soon when they hear his name.

He died at 58 years old. He died lonely before 60, we regard it as the cycle completed in one’s life, at his home in Hachiouji. The cause of death was brain infarction, not the first time. Although he wasn’t known well, but known to people who have involved in a part of avant-garde/experimental art activities centered upon Tokyo. He wasn’t a professional artist, and also didn’t make money to live as a critic. However, he had an enough critical eye, which make us to think “It may be really great”, if he appreciated it.

Xeerox - Recuerdo Espectral de un Viejo Decorado Electrico

Cult Spanish junk/industrial released from the label in Barcelona, Anòmia. Although the musicality with a focus on the edgy and noisy guitar, also minimal and hard beats which remind us Glen Blanca appear has a same vector as "No New York" released in the same age, It's more surreal.

Eric Copeland - Logo My Ego

12" by a musician who is a member of Black Dice released from L.I.E.S.. Experimental beat music colored by psychedelia is developing. I'm admired by his will to create music which he breaks the barrier of genre and it is full of originality he only can do.

La Morte Young - Untitled

A French group whose name is like a parody of La Monte Young. The performance isn't drone, but noisy improvisation which seem to be influenced from Fushitsusha or Swans. Also Cyril M., I'm interested in the current improvisation in France.

Ak'chamel, The Giver of Illness - Rebirth

The track by the group from Texas who wear somehow eccentric clothes. Strange ritual music which they continue the primitive and magical performance by a gloomy voice like agony and a really simple stringed instrument. The group I'd like to check them out.

Budamunky - Drop

The ill track which I think the track come to be exciting because he uses funky Sylvia Striplin "You Can't~" in the first, but it keeps the downer mode from beginning to end. I'd like around Wordsound fans listen to.

LL Cool J - Around the Way Girl

One of the representative song of LL who also got in the news by blasted hell out of the trespasser. The way he sampled the chorus of Mary Jane Girls "All Night Long" and span rapidly is like an origin of Kanye West "Through the wire".

Montibus Communitas - Verðandi

From the 100 copies ltd. tape by a Peruvian group. I'd like around Guardian Aliens fans to listen to this musicality which has the originality as if they combined 70's heavy psyche with raga and the feeling of drunknness.

Joanne Grauer - Who I Am

The self-made album released in 1974 by a precocious female pianist who debuted as a professional at 15 years old. This song decorated by Joanne's melancholic voice is the great song of the female vocal number ranks with "Sunday Morning" by Velvets.

Momonjah meets Ras Dasher - Mann Got Dubber

From the first album by a dub band in Morioka Mr.Onnyk who is writing "New Nambu" etc. on this blog also joins by playing the sax and the flute. They introduce the real dub which the winding funky bass is also cool.

Flip Nunez - See you later

A jazz ballad by a Filipino-American pianist is the number Kellee Patterson also covered. Centering on the emotional vocal like Enka, the mellow guitar or the the cosmic electric piano in unified fashion creates the one universe. I'd like Madlib or Stones Throw fans listen to this song.

Fille Qui Mousse - Se Taire Pour Une Femme Trop Belle

The obscure album which was jammed with from psychedelic rock, drone to all strange music by the French underground group. It reminds us the collaboration album by Pierre Henry&Spooky Tooth or around Cromagnon released from ESP.

Suton - The Sun has Turned to Black

Electric Wizard cover by the new comer from the city called Banja Luka in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The machinery voice which threw away the emotion has a great impact. I'd like to listen to the split ep soon which will be released next year.

Duane Pitre「Section V」

From the album by the artist who was a guitarist in post hardcore band, but  he has turned a composer. Die-hard drone which makes us feel the influence from the pioneer of drone like La Monte Young or Tony Conrad.

Eliane Radigue - Kyema

If the book called drone disc guide was published, one of the 3cd which would be exactly put on that. Although drone which is thoroughly cut the waste, the soft sound just like woman is penetrating.

Battle Trance - Palace Of Wind I

The heavy and aggressive sound which they blow and blow the four tenor sax with circular breathing is as if it is combined Terry Riley with hardcore punk. I'd like fans of Arrington de dionyso to listen to.

v.a. - Hi Fidelity Dub Sessions: Chapter 1

The unknown great omnibus released from Guidance. As if you are listening to mix-cd, you can be satisfied with slow dub related with downtempo or abstract.

Pauline Oliveros & Randy Raine-Reusch - Silence Echoes

The duo which a multi-player who plays ethnic instruments all over the world with a central focus on Asia with a female accordion player who has played even now though she is over 80 years old. I'm drawn into the sound mixed hypnotic drone which makes us fall into a doze with the delicate sonic by Vietnamese one-string zither, dan bau.

Cyril M. - Diffraction


Anachronistic media, cassettes have been now paid attention to again. It is usual we connect sound sources downloaded on the smartphone to speakers or a headphone as tools for enjoying music. It was music players for MP3 use only before. Those have been integrated in tools called palmtop computers. I think the next one will be a wearable tool, it will be implanted in the body in the future. For example, one manipulates tools with biting the teeth by making the ticking.

Pete Rock - Roy Ayers Tribute Mix

The mix starts from Sylvia Striplin "You Can't Turn Me Away"is tribute to Roy Ayers. It is developing smoothly and sexyly with a central focus on hiphop including tracks by himself. The great mix which the craftsmanship is concentrated.

Software - Island-Sunrise

The album released from the label organized by Klaus Schulze in 1988. I'd like Quiet Village fans to listen to balearic/ambient number which is slowly developing with mood.

Rezzett- Yayla

The track by a producer in London whose dj playing in Dommune is great is raw house also related to industrial. The sharp noise is somehow comfortable for my ears.

Hototogisu + Burning Star Core - Untitled

You can lightly hear the melody while dissonance was relentlessly continued to radiate. If My bloody valentine combined with Hijoukaidan and formed "My bloody Kaidan", I imagine they would play such sound.

The Bug vs Earth - Boa

Earth makes the space by the simple guitar riff and drone, The Bug knocks the heavy beats. I remind Techno Animal of yesteryear from the soundscape.

Monday, November 3, 2014

Kellee Patterson - Don't Misunderstand

From the eternal masterpiece "Maiden Voyage" released from the label, Black Jazz which mix-cd by Theo Parrish were in the news. You can be satisfied with the clear voice of Kelly while the fantastic flute or the melancholic electric piano is sounding.

Stoner Dub Trio - Halo Dub

The group which plays rock mixed with dub and stoner as their band's name. I'd like around fans of Blind Idiot God to listen to this.

Bohren & der club of gore - Piano Nights

The sound "unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds" they self described is fulled with the mood and the depth which I should call hard-boiled style music. Although they are inferior to Sunn O))) in terms of the name value, they are the important group as long as them in considering in the current experimental doom/drone scene.
