David Grubbs - Act Five Scene One
posted a review of David Grubbs - Act Five Scene One. 3 months ago
By far one of the greatest record ever recorded by David Grubbs and may be the best follow up to Gastr del Sol. The presence of Tony Conrad is perfect here. This is like a weird journey into empty areas and ghost towns. Long instrumental tracks,... See full review

posted a review of Dreaming Together - 4 Edens And A World Of Shells. 8 months ago
Seriously underrated gem of dark experimental music. A peak made out of tortuous paths, screechs, echos of heavy things moving in the distance, stuttering machines, mechanic tensions and electric storms.
Somewhere around the spacial poetry of folks... See full review

I use to have the Psilotripitaka boxset, but except Merzbild Schwet that i love, i always found the two first LPs a bit too long. These shorter edited versions are perfect to me and i prefer listening to this record than the entire original LPs. Plus,... See full review

A really good record of eerie waves of Mellotron tones coming out of silence, returning to silence, followed by a hazy ghostly woman's voice, creating the most dreamy soundscaps you could just excpect. The whole record never fail to keep you in a deep... See full review

A masively cool band, not enough remembered. Their compositions, mood, sound are mesmerizing and clearly announce most of the shoegaze sound to come. Tome Rice's guitar is a large generator of mass and space, drowning you into waves of swirling... See full review
