Dadala – It So Happens (2016)

  • Free jazz 
  • Electro-acoustic 
  • Improvised music 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Ambient 
  • Electronic music 
  • Experimentalism

Comment: I guess it happened sometime in the end of the 00s when I first made acquaintance with the music of Dadala it happened probably via lastfm. The last years and last albums by Dadala are related to Pan y Rosas Discos, an imprint from Chicago, Illinois, USA whose intention is to promote improvised and jazz-related music. Because of that description it can be said the virtual combo (or long-distance combo or not in real time recording combo) has found a proper output for their issues. Richard Dunlap has been the propulsive force behind it who has been involved in recording music since the mid-80s. However, it is not absolutely correct to describe the combo as jazz because its music involves so many facets and styles – more profoundly, at It So Happens from electro-acoustic minimal approach, anti-gravitational and spaced-out improvisation snippets and tickling electronic effects to more tumultuous appearances and compelling progressions; it is an album wherein the compartments are not distinctly separated from each other but incessantly searching for having joint points between them. Very right issue indeed. By the way, one month ago the artist issued another album called The Executive Suite under the record label.

I/DEX – Vapour (2015)

  • Experimental electronica 
  • Glitchtronica 
  • Ambient techno 
  • Kosmische Musik 
  • Space music 
  • Ambient

Comment: this is not the first entry by the Belarusian artist Vitali Harmash aka I/DEX at Recent Music Heroes because a little bit more than 5 years ago I did comments on his great issue Tetrapolar being reissued by Foundamental in 2009. Additionally, I have reviewed an album called Golem (2013, Foundamental) under his own name but it is a little bit different case. Similarly to Tetrapolar Vitali Harmash likes to straddle on borders of volatile ambient, dreamy electronic progressions, silent techno drumming and otherworldly still life. But is does not mean it is only a tamed flow – at Glacier the artist employs outstretched guitar riffs within a glitched-out galaxy as if an alien flying unhurriedly through it. It contains just three compositions (Coral, Glacier, Aurora) clocking in at a 12 minute. It is a pleasant instance of spiritualised experimental electronic music full of imaginable and real creatures who are exploring blissful spherical terrains and the fading of time. Just go out with headphones at a nocturnal hour to glare at the stars and it might be you will see a lonely spaceship over there.

girlsNames – Energy For Genocide (2014)

  • Cybergrind 
  • Grindcore 
  • DIY 
  • Lo-fi 
  • Death metal 
  • Trash metal 
  • Brutal metal

Comment: The Toronto, Ontario,Canada-based girlsNames` 11-track issue is a proper issue of grindcore-related music because of having the end at a 11-minute. Indeed, it is an example of grindcore and involving also death metal and trash metal elements though flirting with rusty electronic sounds and rigid programmed drums shamelessly. And those spoken word samples are to provide more creepy atmosphere to the mix and female voices to add unconventionally angriness to the melting pot. At times those samples are to predominate over slightly deformed song structures and broken volume stability as if the artist does give a heck. However, if either this point is the case or not it is not important though because such a sort of attitude is somehow appealing with regard to this style and approach. Let`s call it lo-fi/DIY grindcore. Bedroom grind? Party Up A Red Cup is an example of deranged madness and that makes really sense. At Bandcamp there represented about 40 albums by the artist. The issue is a part of the discography of Torn Flesh Records.
