Konntinent – Down With Candy


Curly, attenuated synthesizer experiments of Konntinent in the album “Down With Candy” appear to belong to Antony Harrison’s imagination and creativity. However, the first, attenuated sounds, later turn into fat, thick layers of drones, with progressing intensification of lucid and crystallized substances with coarse-grained structure and numerous gaping with inner light fractures. Evident is the presence of implicit melody, or some kind of a narrative or mental line, going through all of the album. There are some rhytmic structures, denoting simultaneously movement and static nature. Also, the album has in some way a “travelling” character with the changing of decorations, landscapes, and points of sight; in this case, rhythmic textures are suitable, as they reveal this “travelling” kind of movement. The album represents a very interesting specimen of experimental ambient, in the aggregate with the cover picture, resembling a real candybox with sweet ambient pieces, though the album’s title shows the antipathy towards this kind of confectionery. So, get some sweets with Konntinent and his work “Down With Candy”.

Sundrips – Just A Glimpse


Sundrips is a duet of Nick Maturo and Ryan Connelly, whose album “Just A Glimpse”, released on Debacle Records, is the subject of the stated below text. Actually the contained tracks are represented by guitar and synthesized sounds, the performance style of which is sure to provoke a listener’s interest and love. There are some trembling, or even wobbling structures, as in the first track “When”, arpeggios, flying to some far away distance, and then coming back, as in the next “Perseids”, as if revealing the glistening nature of the star shower. “Greyscale” is a sublime stratified and warmly phasing piece with straight direction, whereas “Awash” is a bit disbalanced at the beginning, though in the end still coming to harmony. “Suspended” is vigorous and noisy, while “Access Point” is tender and friendly. The last track “Just A Glimpse”, which entitles the entire album, with its solemn and imposing drone, occurs to be the adequate completion, which as if coordinates all the impressions from the previous pieces. So, enjoy “Just A Glimpse” by Sundrips.

Demian Johnston & Kevin Gan Yuen – Keep Your Hands


As if yearning for an accordance with the depicted scene on the cover of “Keep Your Hands”, the collaborative work of Demian Johnston and Kevin Gan Yuen is really able to make your head boil with the consequent eruption of brain, in the finest and most respectful sense of this words. Fat, spreaded, majestic strata of distorted guitar drones, in the aggregate with damped field recordings constitute the wall of multiwatt attack, which surrounds you. It is the great 27 minutes and 33 seconds of aggressive sound, of some kind of heroic mood, and an impulse of inspiration, that instigated the musicians to create this coarse canvas. The sound is kicking, like an unbroken horse, and, if to continue making poetic comparisons – their creation is like a huge, solid dog, which broke loose from its chain. So, make an attempt to override Demian Johnston and Kevin Gan Yuen’s album “Keep Your Hands”.

L.A. Lungs – Cryptic Snuggling


15 June 2010 release on Debacle Records turns to be “Cryptic Snuggling” by L.A. Lungs. Majestic walls of warm, fried sound are appearing you, while listening to it, but these walls don’t restrict, they don’t enclose, but on the contrary, they just show the way to spacial bliss. The structural side of the album is quite understandable, it consists of thick, sometimes heavy moog drones and gentle guitar sweepings, but all these plain means are used in such a successful and stunning manner, that you are sure to stop thinking about mechanical points, you make a step into this thermal spring, plunge into the vesicular solution of not yet crystallized sounds and have a psychedelic bath. “Cryptic Snuggling” has that sort of old-world flavour, which makes you sustain the sweet feeling of nostalgia. So, have a listen to the musical work of L.A. Lungs.
