The documentary (shot over a period of eight months) takes us travelling with Laurent in the field through remote northern Laos and Yunnan Province of Southwest China and invites us into the world of the folk artists he explores. From shamanic rituals to love songs, historical epics to lamentations, his microphones document what he discovers there. Laurent tell… Read more

HAROLD BUDD & JANE MARU - Jane 1-11 (2014 DVD Edition), Darla
"It's simple. I broke out and broke back to my earlier days: A triangle of risk, improvisation and joy -- as I say, very simple. My rules to myself were: No plan, no notes, no ideas, no microphones; except for Jane 1 I stuck to it. My other rule -- the most important one -- was: At least one piece per day, finished, mixed and not to be revisited again. Jane 7, 8, 9 were done in one day... Brad Ellis was my guide through this: An untiring day, ready to go again... To quote a letter to me from Mark Tobey: ... "It fell off the edge of my brush."" -- Harold Budd

Astro:dynamics present quite easily the best material we've heard so far from Sabina Plamenova aka Alis yet, a lovely suite of lo-fi dream-pop sketches recorded during downtime around a show in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia. The music stands in stark contrast to her recent dancefloor moves on Don't Be Afraid and her own Opit label, erring closer to the psychedelic dub tropes of Negra Branca's amazing 'NB' LP, but juxtaposing her tender, soulful vocal loops against colder, minimalist ambient techno space where she lets her voice ring out like the plainsong of Julianna Barwick.

Taking the as yet unparalleled vision of Sergey Bondarchuk's staggering and hugely influential 1967 film rendition of Lev Tolstoy's classic 'War & Peace' novel, Casas annihilates and implodes the narrative with an impenetrable and multi-layered collage intending to redress the way we perceive film and p… Read more

They have spent more time on these new sounds than they had before - which is saying a lot! All Cave music grabs at your ears and the soft tissue within, and yet this time it's just so much more crystalline, bottom-booting and all-consuming than ever before. Threace comes on guitar up and jelly tight, saving the keys for colour commentary among the beats.
