A drone that seems to go on forever,
echoing through the void,
never modulating in it’s pitch,
never seeming to change in it’s pace.
Where did this droning sound come from,
this seemingly eternal sound that echoes through the void?
I cannot seem to avoid it’s monotone melody,
as it makes it’s way into my mind.
I cannot comprehend where it came from,
this musicality of never undulating pitch,
there is something hypnotic about it,
and I find that now my reaches out for it,
this tone of hypnotic monotony,
a sound that I formerly pushed out of my reach.
“Cult of Personality by Wings of an Angel is a one-piece ambient/drone album of almost one hour playtime. The track is quenched with majestic, almost monumental sound cascades, taking the listener higher and higher into realms of pure sonic light and glory. Sounds too elevated? Not at all! The whole piece allows you to forget your ego and your daily struggle without plagiarizing the shallow meditation CDs from the home shopping channel.
“What a lovely hour of music this is! This is at the pretty, inspirational, light ambient end of things, which I love just as much as dark ambient. In fact, the towering, misty, angelic synths of this piece recall the classic days of early ambient, artists like Iasos as well as Steve Roach’s nineties soundscapes like Darkest Before Dawn and Slow Heat, and also the current work of artists like Phillip Wilkerson. That is very high praise, believe me. I enjoy this to bits and will be investigating this artist’s work further”.
This is the story of a french chanson “Comment fallait-il”, clipped in New York, and then over the years remixed in Brazil, Germany, Italy and France.
The loop is looped, the friendship is global, and the theme universal !
From 1979 to 1983, the Australian Terse Tapes label made cassette compilations. These are in danger of becoming “classics”, a complete betrayal of the energy that made them. There is no better antidote to cloying nostalgia than the corpse getting up and refusing the funeral.
So instead say that from 1979 to 2015, Terse Tapes made compilations, and here is more of the same. You could put it on a cassette if that matters.
I invited a few people I know, and they invited a few people they know, and music started to arrive in my inbox. I refused to listen to any of it until April Fools day. No one curated anything, although some people were nice enough to chase up their friends.
Having heard this music over the last 24 hours I can divide it into some useful ‘sides’, but keep in mind you are able to arrange it however you like in this non-linear wonderland in which we are trapped.
Side A: people who have doubts about music.
Side B: people who do not fear a pretty tune.
Side C: people that make graphs and grids.
Side D: people who could plausibly perform in a public ale house
Side T: time lords

Just a few days away from the conmemoration and annual women’s celebration for their rights’ equity, from the sky falls the new compilation from Modismo label, entitled “Girls Alive”, which draws together music composers and producers of mystical will who explore, amuse and spruce up with a free-download musical offering. It is, indeed, a spectrum of very well achieved and diverse sonorous pieces.
Loaded with defying finesse and neatness these musicians embalm the air via their wavy machinery. There is wisdom behind this musical trip’s jolliest passages. And life, a lot of life in the fertile sequences of this work which, all through its eclectic extent, masterfully demonstrates how to balance experimentation and gamble with a sublime and deferential treatment to the ear. Maybe it is an ancestral and female secret the power music has to interconnect us. But the more you plunge in “Girls Alive”, the more assured you are that this secret is hidden in good hands.
From and towards the most lulling and deep unto the most stimulating and intriguing that this new release from the netlabel Modismo delivers us we cannot do anything but smile and be thankful for each one of the female presences around us, chiefly when they decide to unite and give strenght, love and music.

Deadlines´s first album ” Magical inertia” is Javier´s and Jordi´s first attempt to make a more sophisticated music but without losing their identity as a pop-rock act.
The presence of heavier basses and deeper vocals takes them to a darker side but within a melodic corridor.
The result is a set of songs with a restful style but with the mark of their sound, which they have been playing and developing all over the last years with their parallel formation: Daily Khaos delivery (DKd).
