This record has nothing to do with comfortable music, rock or nearly anything you usually like to listen. It’s electronic, minimal and abstract. Olento is an album that has shaped my music taste more than any other record. Sähkö Recordings released this album by late Mika Vainio first time in 1996 only on CD format (I can still remember where I bought my copy). A few months ago I got a note that this has been pressed on vinyl (finally) […]
One of those artists I have been following for years now. I’ve been fascinated by his music since I bought his second full-length, Memories In Widescreen, about five or six years ago. Few releases I have missed during these years but certainly I’m getting those too, some day. With this one I was little late, didn’t wanted to order this from the states nor from Juno Records so I waited for copies artist himself was going to sell. Surprisingly I […]
Lately I’ve been purchasing releases where Mika Vainio has been involved and here’s one again. Back in the days I had this “Keimola E.P.” by one of Vainio’s aliases, Kentolevi, but I sold it years ago (probably because I needed money for beer or something..). After ordering that Pan Sonic’s latest release I decided to go after other Vainio releases and then I found this “promotional” copy of Keimola E.P. from Discogs. As shown in the picture above, cover has […]
Got this beauty from Further Records yesterday. And as you might guess, this is not hard & heavy nor blackened metal. this is Donato Dozzy and his latest full-length filled with experimental techno/ambient soundscapes. I just couldn’t resist purchasing this one because I really enjoyed his debut album, K. This white colored version is limited to 100 copies and surprisingly sold out but if you are interested of clearing your troubled minds with some twisted techno vibes Further Records is […]
Minimal.. This one I picked up from that usual place, post office, yesterday. Some strange way this release reminds of those times I found Panasonic and electronic music. I came across with this album via OMG Vinyl, blog I have been reading years, and that’s the place you should follow too. This double album on this colorway is limited to 100 copies and there’s some still left on Semantica’s BandCamp site for you to purchase! — —
Then it’s time to return back to the darkness. Latest record from Alessandro Cortini and fifth one I own from this mastermind. There’s a good reason why I keep purchasing his records, these are absolutely stunning!. Dark, abstract, electro-ambient or something like that.. I have praised this gentleman so many times before and will continue doing that in the future. Stunning masterpiece of darkened synth-ambient. Initial copies came on white vinyl and It’s quite obvious that these are already sold […]
I have this strange obsession with Vatican Shadow, I must purchase every damn vinyl release from this artist and I can’t help it (few I have missed though). Some kind of post-apocalyptic (experimental/industrial) electronics is the name of the game here and I really enjoy games like this. Initial copies (300) comes on colored vinyl and sad but true, it seems that this colored version is sold out. Regular copies available for example from Juno Records, Kompakt, Red Eye Records, […]
And today this came, 4th from this ongoing series (that seems to be endless..). And about the record itself.. experimental-droned-weird-techno, hope that was justified description. Maybe I’ll stop purchasing these when we come to “Test Pressing #100”. Initial copies came on this color variation and surprisingly these are sold out. For regular black copy, head to Boomkat, or if you are really after these colored versions go to Discogs but be aware that prizes are what they are..
Number four in a series of limited edition 12″ releases with deluxe art prints by Bleep. Well, well, well.. Now I have stepped out off my comfort zone.. Techno recordings :) Nice, I have to say. This is some kind of deluxe version but I have no idea about limitation. Seems to be also sold out. Standard version is limited to 500 copies and available from Bleep.
Latest release from Donato Dozzy arrived today. I can’t remember where I heard this record for the first time but when this was released I had to have this one. If I’m not totally wrong, this is limited to 500 copies and available for example from the source, Electronique.it Records, and from Boomkat of course.
I decided to try this release just because I haven’t been listening Donato Dozzy’s material since his “K” album. Well, this ain’t that bad release at all :) I bought this from Juno Records and seems that it’s sold out from there. Limited to 300 clear copies.
First one this week. Picked this up from the local post office today. Third “Testpressing” and just wondering how many they are going to release.. For those who do not know this band, it’s just better to listen to yourself. Initial copies came on this color and rest seems to b black copies. I ordered this copy from Boomkat, and seems that they have sold both versions out.. hmm. Experimedia seems to have this for pre-order..
And here is maybe the greatest artist in minimal electronic scene (and this is purely my own opinion). Man behind this is Mika Vainio, other half of Pan Sonic (formerly known as Panasonic). I was totally blown away when I first time heard “Vakio” by Panasonic (Pan Sonic). It was something totally new to me. This is repress of this EP and you can easily find this from Discogs. Sähkö Recordings has sold this out but you can find something […]
I really do not remember when I purchased this one and that is a shame. Brilliant dark ambient recording. Damn. Where was this band when I needed them most? This is sold out from the label, Blackest Ever Black and Boomkat has also sold this out. You can find this dark ambient/industrial flower easily from discogs for very decent prize.
This I bought two years ago randomly and this is one of those records which were positive surprises. Don’t know how many pressed but seems that this is sold out everywhere. You can find this from Discogs.. and it seems that you have to spend quite much to get this one..
