While the new HTRK album is simply lovely, the opening track Kiss Kiss and Rhinestones is my fav. Likewise, with the latest release on Jazz-o-Tech from Morgen Wurde & Tis, the Ambient-leaning Synthese remix of the title track is a tension-melter. The new LP from CiM (aka Simon Walley) on Delsin collects nine tracks from his 90s archives, featuring
fresh clashing beats from tweaked Amiga samples.
In the new Acid face-off EP between Lauren Flax and Posthuman, the US artist's Endless Summer track is subtle and tasteful with a funky edge. First taste of the upcoming album from Eris Drew is Quivering In Time (that's the name of the album too) and it's got a fun and bouncy Electronic Pop sensibility. And finally, on Analogical Force, Spanish artist Diego Cadierno, aka Cadee, aka Promising/Youngster, turns in a fine, melodic, IDM slow burner.Noted, 25 Sep 2021, 13:48
New and recent releases worth investigating: the exquisite HTRK album Rhinstones, the third installment of Martyn-mentored compilations It Was Always There Vol 3 (also Vol 1 and Vol 2), Antiphonals by Sarah Davachi, Ambient and acoustic compilation from New York label RVNG Intl. called Salutations and a massive 100-track Ambient selection from Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet called Sleep Studies (prj. Theta Prism) (name your price too).Noted, 17 Sep 2021, 08:12
Loraine James - Don't You See It ft Jonnine
I started listening to this, the third track from forthcoming Nothing EP by Loraine James, thinking, wow, I hadn't appreciated what a lovely singing voice James had, and she sounds like Jonnine Standish from HTRK to boot... then it dawned on me, guest vocalist! It's lovely.
