We’re a little late to the game, but don’t take it out on Edamame or his new album Bask, which came out a couple of months ago on Gravitas Recordings. Comparing to the midwesterner beatsmith’s past releases, Bask sounds a bit less like tripping in the forest and more like tripping on the surface of the moon. A delight, nonetheless. Available for (name your price) at Bandcamp.
Stillhead (aka DFRNT aka Alex Cowles) is running an Indiegogo campaign to support his next double-album Copenhagen. Here’s some samples:
For 8 quid you can get a digital download of the double-length album! Or there’s a bunch of other perks like sample packs, 12″ vinyls, or even a custom remix from the artist himself.
Dr. Toast’s Oz So Late is now available for (name your price) at bandcamp! It was originally released on OEM Recordings (that was us!) in 2004 as a limited edition CD.
Another quick entry from Apollo Records, Sebastian Mullaert brings you a 4 track EP entitled All The Keys Are Here. Minimal thumpers underlie Rhodes, piano, and ambient pads that either loom or soar through the numbers.
New stuff from Apollo Records, a brooding affair littered with acoustic–almost jazz–guitar, piano, and drum performances floating atop Marconi Union style ambiences and drones. Marcin Cichy is one half of jazz/downtempo duo Skapel of Ninja Tune fame. This is a beautiful EP worth your attention.
Here’s an amazing ambient & field recordings album to start out your week. Yoyu is the pseudonym of our friend Ali Khan, the Canadian producer of fine ambient and spacy dub techno. This is a delicate album that brings you into its varied territory. We don’t add much pure ambient to the OEM Radio library, and this is a fine example of fresh, deep, slow music.
Fresh from Street Ritual Records–home to weird bass music of all classifications–comes Soulacybin’s latest offering of bass/funk. I mean real funk with guitar and keys. But also with the West Coast style squirbley bass shenanigans.
There’s also something deeply unsettling about the album cover. Well done, friends.
