And here’s one of my favourite Denovali artists, Dale Cooper Quartet & Dictaphones and their latest full-length “Astrild Astrild”. Actually I missed this totally when it was announced but hopefully I found a copy via Discogs (and got this near original prize). This is my fifth album from this group and still I love their modern-cool jazz-classical music. It’s this atmosphere here on these albums I’m in love. This album was released on green/grey merge (limited to 150 copies), on […]
Breaking the silence with this new one from The Caretaker. This is the second album from the series of six albums. Surely I know that this kind of music ain’t for everyone (dark ambient, classical, experimental) but it’s close to perfect if you ask me. I still remember hearing The Caretaker for the first time, I think it was via Boomkat because I immediately ordered a copy of “An Empty Bliss Beyond This World”. Those soundscapes on that album […]
For you to know, I still love to listen some ambient/modern classical/electronic music even though lately this blog has been full of stoner/doom/psych/space/rock/whatever posts. I have aways been a huge fan of releases by Sonic Pieces, these handmade cardboard/textile packaging & beautiful records from awesome artists. Latest release is this from Christoph Berg (aka Field Rotation). I have been following his recording history since 2011 and still I love these records, still I love to listen to these tunes. My […]
Starting this weekend with latest release by 36 called “Tomorrow’s Explorers”. Smooth modern classical, ambient tunes painting beautiful soundscapes. One of my favourite artist’s when talking about this genre. This twelve-inch is my 11th vinyl release from this artist.. so it’s quite obvious I kinda like these tunes. Tomorrow’s Explorers is limited to 250 copies. I thought this was already sold out but there’s still copies available from hhv.de
This The Eye of Time’s album was released about year and a half ago and I managed to purchase it just about a month ago. Third vinyl release by this french artist, Marc Euvrie. Music on this album embrace the darkness, it’s a mixture of postrocking modern classical with ambient & drone.. I was stoked about his previous album “Acoustic” and I love this one. It is strange to note that, this album reminds me of the movie “The Thin […]
Today is a great day to listen this latest Sonic Pieces’ release, Minor Planet by Midori Hirano. Never heard about this artist before and this is what I love about Sonic Pieces, they always manage to surprise me. This Midori Hirano’s album sounds beautiful, it’s an album filled with ambient elements, some may call it modern classical, experimental electronics is what I say. Anyways, I really hope to hear from this Japanese artist in future just because this album surely […]
Soundtrack for the film, End of Summer. This record arrived few weeks ago but I haven’t had a time to listen it until now. And it sounds.. beautiful, in my opinion. Thing with these soundtracks is that you either like them or not, it’s that simple. I bought this for a reason, and I really like these soundscapes. There is this version on silver-colored vinyl (limited to 200 copies) and regular black wax version available. Boomkat seems to have some black copies available, […]
If you like classical, modern classical played with piano this might be the one you want to purchase. Thanks to retter for this one, once again (I’m spying this gentleman via BandCamp). Really awesome little record from Niels and I’m very, very happy to own this beautiful record (limited to 99 copies according to BandCamp) and I really hope to hear more from this artist. Just check out this one and if you like what you hear, go for it […]
And finally I managed to get a decent copy of this record on my hands (had those problems with damaged packages earlier..). Anyway, this is Chatwin’s first release under his own name (he is better know from his project called Talvihorros) and surprisingly I did not hesitate purchasing this after I listened few tunes from the album. mesmerizing modern classical/drone album indeed. If I remember right this album is limitd to 500 copies (correct me if I’m wrong) and available […]
If you like to listen drone, improvised, experimental modern classic music then you can’t go wrong with this album. These two gentlemen, Davis on clarinet & Smith on guitar, manages to create fascinating soundscapes with their beloved instruments. Beautiful record, limited to 500 copies and still available from alt.vinyl I bought my copy from Discogs seller and if you look closer the picture above, you can see why I was little disappointed when this copy arrived. Top right corner of […]
And another awesome repress from Cinedelic, outstanding “Nucleo Centrale Investigativo” from that same gentleman, Egisto Macchi. Soundtrack from some Italian police TV series from 1974.. Hell yeah! Action music as it says on the label of that seven-inch. Experimental/abstract/classical music.. from 1974 (damn, I wasn’t even born yet). Limited to 400 numbered copies and 100 of those are pressed on white vinyl. Available from Cinedelic (quality release indeed). p.s. Cinedelic also knows how to package records for shipping, I really […]
Hey, this is a good one (if you like experimental classical stuff). Released by Sonic Pieces and on this double vinyl there actually are two different albums (I + II) combined. This is limited to 350 copies and it seems to be sold out everywhere. I really love this series of records with handmade cardboard/textile packaging that Sonic Pieces is releasing.. beautiful records. Recommended! — —
I picked this from the post office few hours ago. Certainly one of the most interesting artists when talking about modern classical/ambient. Somehow I managed to purchase this ultra limited release (only 55 copies on single-sided white vinyl with print on B-side) from Fauxpas Musik last week and I’m glad that I did because this sold out very quickly. Beauty this is, certainly. Sad thing is that there is already one copy for sale on Discogs, for nearly hundred euros.. […]
This week starts with this one, Retold 2xLP on clear vinyl. This clear version was available for those who preordered this album (I don’t know what was I thinking back then when I skipped that growdfunding thing totally). Well, anyways I now got this clear version here, on my hands. There were few copies available to order few weeks ago on Serein‘s BandCamp site (spotted that via twitter) and surprisingly I couldn’t resist purchasing one. Beautiful modern classical/ambient album in deed, […]
Yep.. at this moment I really believe that my earphones have integrated with my ear canals. Second album from Poppy (known also as a member of Hidden Orchestra) and second one I own. I already know that I’m going to spend numerous hours with this modern “classical” album like I did with the debut one. Yep..this sounds awesome, I suggest that you listen this with your headphones on and you might have this same problem with ear canals as I […]
Hmm.. Now I have to say that here we have a very interesting split album, interesting indeed. Cooper’s Quartet & The Dictaphones have been one of my favorite groups since their first album, Parole De Navarre, and I have enjoyed their dark atmospheric soundscapes since then. With Witxes this split release is near perfection. These tunes would fit perfectly on some of those upcoming Twin Peaks episodes.. Dark, droned, experimental & almost brooding atmosphere on this release (with some hazy jazz […]
Beware, this album is about classical, modern classical. Carlos and piano, what else you need? It’s pointless for me to say anything about this album, anything else than it’s so beautiful.. I could listen this artist playing his instrument for hours and hours and hours.. Few years ago I was amazed about his debut album “The Monarch And The Viceroy” and now this latest.. I like this, I love this. Still available from Denovali (limited to 250 copies on this […]
I admit that it has been little quiet here on my blog recently but there’s obvious reason for that; I haven’t received that much records lately and about my weekly list.. it will continue at this upcoming weekend. But let’s check this nice looking set on the picture above. Brambles – Charcoal LP that I picked up from the post office earlier today. I ordered this one.. hmmm.. can’t even remember when it was. Anyways, it’s finally pressed on vinyl and […]
Candyman, candyman, candyman,candyman, candyman… Picked this up from the post office earlier today. I never ever thought that someday I’ll find myself buying soundtracks.. like I do nowadays. This I had to have just because this film caused me numerous nightmares, sleepless nights and for some time I was afraid of mirrors.. hey, that was years and years ago (here I am trying to convince myself..) Hahaaa :) This is released by Light In The Attic and limitation of this […]
I know that this is a steal but I got this modern classical/experimental/ambient piece for only £4.00 from Under The Spire. What can I say, excellent record for these snow filled days & everlasting darkness. Love the atmosphere on this little black disc and I’m still surprised how in hell I have managed to skip this record so many times before. This is limited to 200 copies and You can get Your hands on this via Under The Spire. Recommended one […]
Now I have to admit that I can’t remember how did I came across with this album.. But am I glad to have this. Awesome classical album played with piano from this Ethiopian composer, Girma Yifrashewa. I love music played by piano and this is truly an amazing piece. Expand your musical universe and give this one a spin, I can assure you won’t be disappointed. This is limited to 300 copies on colored & 300 copies on black vinyl. […]
Haa.. Latest from Thomas Köner, released by Denovali. Beautiful nearly minimalistic modern classical exploration of piano. Headphone-music at it’s best. This is just a third Köner album I own and it means that I have to get familiar with his previous releases too. Beautiful & fragile music to balance this hectic state of surrounding realm. This clear version is limited to 150 copies (there is also 350 copies on white vinyl available) and You can get your copy from the […]
WILLIAM RYAN FRITCH: Revisionist LP (Deluxe 12″ Vinyl Book) Lost Tribe Sound $33.00 (+ shipping) Release date is on February, 2015 I do not usually write anything in advance, now I have to make an exception.This just sounds so amazing.. breathtaking. Even though there is only one song to listen on BandCamp, it’s enough to convince me that this record is worth to own. Awesome mixture of post-something-folk-classical-indie-experimental-drone.. I found this one while surfing around BandCamp and it did not took much […]
Yes, what a soundtrack for these first winter days. Drone/dark/ambient, what else can you expect from this duo. Obviously this release is going to have some serious rotation on my headphones. This is a beauty, from cover to waves in the air. Available from Sonic Pieces/Miasmah. You know, just listen.. — —
Hey, this is music played with Piano, music played with Cello. And the point is that this is honey to my ears, beautiful modern classical music.. I’m not an expert of any kind when talking about music, genres, styles but I know when I’m hearing something amazing, something that touches me. This record is one of those, surely. I just wonder how can this album still be available, why it’s not sold out already (least that limited colored version)? This […]
Woah! I didn’t see this coming. I know that Fluid Audio released this on CD last year but I skipped that automatically because of the “wrong” format. Damn I’m happy that I purchased this now on vinyl, released by another awesome record label, Denovali. And once again I gambled, bought this without hearing a note before today (little white lie here, actually I did listen few seconds from the first track before I purchased this) .. I’m in love with […]
I have to admit that I nearly missed this one (nearly). When this came out from Sonic Pieces earlier this month I thought that it will not sell out that fast but oh boy.. I was so wrong. This sold out from the source very fast and I was left empty-handed. Within few days copies of this compilation popped up on Discogs with higher prize tags. I was ready to purchase overpriced copy but luckily enough I found a copy […]
Hmm.. The Alvaret Ensemble collaborated with Icelandic artists hmm.. Different kind of modern classical album with haunting poems. Very intense and ethereal soundscapes with beautiful voices. For some this may be little hard to handle but for me this is one of those reasons why I listen to music. The joy of finding something new, something you have never heard before. Nice. Time to put my headphones on and let the music guide me to sweet oblivion! Limited to 150 […]
Last one from that Denovali treasure package today. Now I have to say that this one I purchased totally blindfolded. But when talking about Denovali releases, you can’t go wrong. This seems to be the debut album from Frederico Albanese and then comes the best part! Piano. There are two instruments I love most of all, piano and banjo. Beautiful record and certainly this one will have heavy rotation within next few days (I might have some kind of fetish […]
Then we have this one. Few months ago I bought Origamibiro’s collection from Denovali, and since it arrived I have been waiting for this one. And.. what can I even say, beautiful record, this floats somewhere beyond modern classical, experimental ambient I do not even know where.. Maybe it’s too early to say but this will certainly be on my top 20 records this year. I like this a lot and it’s purely your choice whether you like it or […]
Carlos Cipa & Sophia Jani with their twelve-inch EP, Relive. And surprisingly there is no doubt about the quality of this release (Denovali). Oh yes, this is music played with piano. I have become very attached of listening music played with this magical instrument. I like, I mean I really like this record. This is limited to 150 copies on silver and 150 copies on black vinyl. Both versions are still available from magical Denovali. Go for it! —
This 5″ I found hiding between Hellacopters and Death Breath seven-inches while I was going through my little 7″ collection. Well, there is a reason I have bought this, this is beautiful. Surprisingly I have grown to like piano music lately and this little one does not make exception in that category. This is limited to 100 copies and you can still purchase this beauty from Stashed Goods. I have to recommend this one, just listen to yourself. —
Here I’m laying on my bed, wearing my beloved Entombed T-shirt eyes closed and headphones on.. Well, it was few moments ago and after writing these meaningless words I’m going to continue my voyage with this beautiful album, Otto A Totland’s Pinô. This came from Boomkat today and I’m very glad that I managed to purchase vinyl copy of this gorgeous piece of music. Within two weeks I have received two awesome record filled with piano sounds, this and Fabrizio […]
Now I have to Thank Own Records for this one! This came along with that David Andree/Josh Mason album, with that post-it sticker “A Gift for You!” written on it! I think that most of us loves free gifts, like I do, but special point with this one is that this was particularly on my “wishlist” on BandCamp. Perfect! And about this album, there is a reason why it was on my wishlist. Love these tunes, warm modern/neo classical ambient […]
Last one of today (what an awesome begin for this week), and I can say that this one is the winner of this week already! Amazing collaboration between these two Sardinian musicians. Within two last years Eugenio Caria (Saffronkeira) has released handful of incredible records on vinyl (thanks to Denovali) and yes, I have them all. If you like modern experimental classic with most beautiful jazz tunes seasoned with some electronics, this one is for you. This could be “The […]
Nice. This came today and I’m really glad that I purchased this even though it was little pricey but this one is worth of every cent. Modern classical and this needs to be listened your headphones on. This beauty is limited to 250 copies and if you like, you can purchase this from Luke Howard’s BandCamp site. Recommended! Oh, and I have to mention this, record came in perfect condition from Australia to Europe. Packaging was awesome, records taken out […]
Came home few hours ago and these two albums were here waiting for me. I’m really glad that these are finally released on vinyl.. I can clearly remember listening “Soon It Will Be Cold Enough” when I was on gym lifting some iron (well, it was few years ago..) but anyways, both of these albums are awesome and I really, really like these. Purchased these from Bandcamp (https://emancipator.bandcamp.com/music) and about limitation, no idea. And the whining part of this post. […]
And the last one for today. Amazingly beautiful package from Facture records (just realized that I have all vinyl releases this company has put out). One of my favorite record company with quality releases. About the music you can hear from this release, breathtaking beautiful, no words to praise enough, You have to listen it to yourself. This is limited to 300 copies and you can lift your little hands and purchase a copy from Boomkat or Experimedia still you can. Recommended!! […]
This arrived today from Experimedia. With this one you can’t go wrong (album from Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Liz Harris). And what can you expect from this beauty? Drone, ambient, modern classical and for the most, ethereal & haunting background vocals. Record for your headphones and lonely moments. Recommended, surprise. Limited to 500 copies and you may find this from Root Strata (US only), Glass, house (US only) or you can try your luck with Boomkat (later).
Surprise, surprise. Once again winner from Denovali catalogue. This Piano Interrupted’s latest album came few days ago and having heavy rotation right now as I’m writing this. Love their debut and I know right now that this love is going to last. Once again have to thank Denovali for releasing this kind of music. If some one is interested about limitation of this record, there are 150 copies on electric blue (here) and 350 copies on black vinyl (here). Choice […]
This beauty came today. Found this one when I was on “treasure Hunt” surfing around BandCamp. Dark and beautiful record this is, modern classical, something beyond everlasting sadness and dreams filled with untouchable sorrow. I have no glue about limitation of this record and seems that this is sold out from their BandCamp page now. Highly recommended.
And another one from Sebastian Plano. Do not need words to describe how good this is. You should listen this for yourself. Limited to 150 on ultraclear and 350 on black vinyl. And where can you purchase this? Denovali is the answer. Run, run.
This artist is a great example how excellent records Denovali puts out. Is this modern classical, I do not know but it sounds amazing. Thank you Sebastian, for your music and thanks to Denovali releasing this! Limited to 150 copies and 350 on black vinyl. Help yourself and get this amazing recording from Denovali!
Well, now I have to admit that I’m not that familiar with Ulver’s music, actually I don’t even remember hearing any of their music before this one (shame on me). The thing is that there are millions of bands and so little time.. Nice to meet you Ulver, I think that today our journey just begun. This is a deluxe lent edition of this record. Limited to 100 copies on purple vinyl included poster, 7″ booklet, CD and card individually signed […]
Yep, this came today, latest from Greg Haines (new artist to me). And surprisingly released by my favourite record label, Denovali. And now I’m going to give this one a good spin. Limited to 150 copies on clear gold and 350 copies on black vinyl, available from Denovali.
And by far, this is winner of this week. Amazing album! And released by.. Denovali, surprise! Modern classical mixed with some jazz etc.. Damn this sounds good! Limited to 500 pieces, 150 on white and 350 on black vinyl. Both versions available from Denovali. here is what you can expect from this album..
And last but not least. Latest from awesome Field Rotation. It seems that I have all vinyl releases from this artist.. These are sounds I would like to hear every single day rest of my little life. Limited to 500 copies (150 copies on clear and 350 copies on black vinyl). Get yours from Denovali, both colorways still available.
And yes, this came also yesterday from Denovali. Lovely one, indeed. As I have said before, these releases from Denovali are getting better and better. Limited to 350 copies, 150 of those came on green vinyl and rest are on black vinyl. Both versions are available from the source, Denovali.
hmm.. Purchased this few years ago and still fascinated with these sounds. Some kind of dark-modern-classical-ambient-folk. I don’t know about pressing limitations but this is random multi-colored vinyl so every record is unique. Available from Experimedia, and it’s on sale there ($10.40). Recommended, highly.
