+ Free MP3
28
*Much needed new edition of this incredible LP - fans of Arvo Pärt, Deathprod, Bernard Herrmann - take note* Shrouded in the mystery and the opaque, otherworldly quality we've come to expect from the consistently remarkable Miasmah imprint, this beguiling debut album has been wrecking our collective heads here in the office for some time. Pieced together from a plethora of unidentified samples, field recordings and found sounds, Kreng taps into a unique, almost indescribable corner of the musical universe that originates from, and proceeds to completely re-imagine, … Read more

"Monika Enterprise presents the debut album by Cologne artist Sonae: 'Far away is right around the corner'. Containing 10 tracks written between 2012 and 2014 the record deals with reflections about friendship, growing up and everyday life full of hope as far away is right around the corner. Sonae's music is wide, flowery and raw from the very quiet (Ambient) to tiny club moments (Electronica) always embedded in an electronic soundscape."

And this new release - from the largely unknown Jasmine Guffond - really stands out as their best release yet.

Sean McCann completes his transition from ambient to classical & avant-garde musics with these ten breathtaking pieces realised over a four year period. Recorded throughout 2010 and 2011, assembled in 2012 and later committed to vinyl, they can be taken to document his maturation from shepherd of slow moving ambient clouds to an architect of steepled composition who graduated with 2013's 'Music for Private Ensemble', released on his Recital imprint.
