Troy Spencer – Phase 6 (2016)



  • Cool jazz 
  • Modal jazz 
  • Improvised music 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Fusion 
  • World fusion

Comment: I am being very lucky because of listening to an outing from the discography of the Netherlands-based imprint 2419 Record Label and at the same time feeling sadness about the label's inability to maintain its website. Unfortunately at Archive.org you can find out some very huge aggregates of sonic files just pigeonholed by genres. For instance, to get one slab a music enthusiast must download a huge volume while it may be choking up his/her computer. Hopefully any album will be set aside over there sometime. In truth, 2419 Record Label has been releasing amazing music in many years like the recent outing used to prove it. More profoundly, this set of 10 compositions embraces lots of chord changes and dodges in mood yet it is way too less to say much enough about it. At times it used to happen to chime in a spasmodic and enraptured way while based on the short fuse of free jazz. Musically it may resemble Miles Davis from the end of the 60s, and at the beginning of the 70s filled in with enormous energy while straddling the border between soothing and wild, between more traditional and vanguard, between sane and mind-provoking. Between cool jazz, and modal complexity. On the other hand, we have to understand the whole as a contemporary release of involving more facade and fads. For instance, one can hear the more steep precipices and angular chords of math/technical rock and even some picturesque Balkan gypsy motives now and then. In a word, it is the fabulous listening session.

Tont – Vaba Vesi (2017)



  • Ambient 
  • Abstract 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Field recording 
  • Alternative 
  • Organic electronica 
  • Musique concrète 
  • World music 
  • Ethnotronica 
  • Spoken word

Comment: Tont (Ghost) is the project of Estonian traveller and musician Siim Kuusemäe whose subsequent outing has been managed grossly in a similar way as his previous ones though there are up some different characteristics as well. So it can be said the artist's physical and mental journey goes on. While I am writing this comment I am not listening to a digital copy of it but an exemplary of the limited edition of 48 tapes entitled Vaba Vesi (Free Water) being released on Tallinn-based underground imprint Trash Can Dance. It starts off with reciting one extraction by the Estonian writer Arvo Valton who states that the thought of travelling can be equalled with the thought of living and the experience of travelling makes one feel more excited about and more empathetic and being an integral part of his/her development. It is the most humanity-related phenomenon. It used to correlate with the thought of Heraclitus, the pre-Socratic philosopher from ancient Greece who stated all is moving around and there is no chance to step into one and the same river twice. Similarly Tont has not done it before and does not do it the recent time either. Or is not allowed to do it. Additionally, by Heraclitus Tont may be standing at a crossroad because additionally those prevalent sultry field recording based sounds and shamanic rhythmic patterns one can also hear a more abstract composition at the self-titled track as if hearing passing by the cars at a remote distance while staying somewhere in the middle of the forest. In another piece called Sume Tont exploits more synthetic, artificial templates to create a clear-cut ambient composition in the traditional sense of this word. In a word, Tont issued a subsequent purgatorial outing which can be admitted a best recording in a year. In 2017, more profoundly. Besides his solo albums I recommend put ear on a project, Allinn (at Bandcamp), he has also been get involved in.

Drunkeninstrumentcorporation – Always The Same 10 Fucking Songs (2016)



  • Shoegaze 
  • Alternative rock 
  • Indie rock 
  • Fuzz pop 
  • Jangle pop 
  • Noise pop

Comment: this 10-track issue clocking in at a 33 minute comes out of from Italy, from the deep Cuneo province in the southwest of the Piedmont region of Italy (nearby the border of France). It is the one-man-project of Marco Abbà whose purpose was to put up a fight against boredom by being imaginative and creative. What does it mean always the same 10 fucking songs? Could it be understood in the same way as the propositions as always having sex with the same woman, always doing the same job, any day visiting and posting the blog? By the way, it could be delightful if your understanding and well-being is closely related to it. In case if the aforementioned sources are bottomless are you still intended to abandon them? In fact, I have been listening to this set of fucking songs five times in a row. The more I listen to it the more appealing it seems to be. In fact, it is the merit of this “always the same”. Distorted galvanized guitars, jangly yet still galvanized guitars, lofty synth-based overdrives and poignant electronic sounds and programmed beats atop and at the bottom respectively and tight, coherent structures of songwriting. The listener could hear certain echoes of Bloody Valentine, Ride, Swervedriver and even more distant echoes of post-punk combos yet Drunkeninstrumentcorporation is not the same. The whole contains a couple of amazing compositions as The AtticSea Of Memories, Happy Like A Hurricane, and Blanket. The solid issue is a part of the discography of In Your Ears. Great success.
