Sucusauce Vol. 01 celebrates the first birthday of Sucumusic netlabel with a selection of tracks taken from some of the releases by all the bands and artists on its roster.
It is a companion to the Podcast of the same title and intention, featuring the same artists with a different selection of tracks.
In the sampler we go from the pared-down, stripped-down electronics of Art Electronix to the guitar antics of Claudio Quartarone, the idm of Tkns and soundscapes of guitar maestros Gaetano Fontanazza, Cousin Silas and Stephen Briggs, not to forget the improvised musical chasms of Purple Mountain Peal.
A sampler to celebrate but also a door to enter for whoever has stayed on the outside so far. An invitation to come in and discover the, let us say it, musical wonderland that Sucumusic is.
Have a good listening and don’t forget to download the accompanying Podcast, too.
Tetarise returns! After a break of several months since his first release on Kahvi, Tetarise returns with another fantastic five track ep entitled ‘HeadDown Jam’, this time in a more complex psy-chilled style.
The epic feel of the tracks is still apparent, with the addition of guitar in a couple of the tracks. Think of this ep as a cross between Solar Fields and Boards of Canada and you’ll get an idea of how good it is.
Definately an addition to your permanent playlist, tracks of choice for this avid Tetarise fan are Lucid Dream and Red Yellow Green. They just get better and better! Enjoy this autumn EP from Tetarise.
A libertine is one devoid of most moral restraints, which are seen as unnecessary or undesirable, especially one who ignores or even spurns accepted morals and forms of behaviour sanctified by the larger society. Libertines put value on physical pleasures, meaning those experienced through the senses. As a philosophy, libertinism gained new-found adherents in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, particularly in France and Great Britain. Notable among these were John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester, and the Marquis de Sade.
The word “Libertine” was originally coined by John Calvin to negatively describe opponents of his policies in Geneva, Switzerland. This group, led by Ami Perrin, argued against Calvin’s “insistence that church discipline should be enforced uniformly against all members of Genevan society”. Perrin and his allies were elected to the town council in 1548, and “broadened their support base in Geneva by stirring up resentment among the older inhabitants against the increasing number of religious refugees who were fleeing France in even greater numbers”. By 1555, Calvinists were firmly in place on the Genevan town council, so the Libertines, led by Perrin, responded with an “attempted coup against the government and called for the massacre of the French. This was the last great political challenge Calvin had to face in Geneva”. Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand wrote that Joseph Bonaparte “sought only life’s pleasures and easy access to libertinism” while on the throne of Naples.
Wrieuw is thrilled to release a collection of loop music by the wonderful Akane Hosaka. After 4 albums of gleeful, quirky electronica Akane dives headlong into experimental territory whilst maintaining the sound that is uniquely hers, using a Korg MS-20 Mini and a loop pedal. Akane has regularly been posting the results of these experimentations to here soundcloud page, and she has kindly collected together an EP of these for Wriuew. To my mind in places it sounds like a lost soundtrack to an Oliver Postgate program, either way, experimental music doesn’t get cuter than this, bleeps, bloops and joyful melodies abound. Wrieuw loves releasing music it loves and we have been fans of Akane for a very long time, we hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do.
