“Wings of an Angel’s recent releases have had both great sadness and great hope in them. Musical essays on the human condition, especially the soul-searching that must necessarily come from conflict, are his focus. The titles all tell stories in themselves, and guide the listener on a kind of meditation of the topic”
aitänna77 is the solo project of Spanish musician Mikel Martinez . At the beginning of last decade he began recording songs in his bedroom. Influenced by folk, lo-fi pop, electronica, ambient and a thousand other things in a declaration of love to master musicians such as Joe Meek, Franco Battiato’s music in the first half of the ’70s or Brian Eno, to name a few
Try as you like, it’s doubtful that you can avoid something along the lines of ‘noir’, ‘heaviness’, and in some cases ‘cyberpunk’ when describing this album. We probably can, though. ‘Paradigm Lost’ is uncertain, but not because this contrast between the almost industrial pressure and the usual kind of Engel’s melancholy isn’t organic, it is. And the album is betting on it. It defines its primary mood as uncertainty and confusion. This is a short but memorable road from the most gloomy to the most aspriring moments of Kai’s music.

Horhos is a two-member ”band” from Hungary. Their music combines ambient, drone, folk and other elements (e.g. natural field recordings) into a unique sound. The band was formed in 2012, their first, untitled album was released in September 2014 via Bandcamp. The album received high publicity in Hungarian internet-based music press and was acclaimed by the critics and listeners. It works best with closed eyes and opened heart!
“What Has Remained: The Lost Teachings Of The Antithesis”
“Если вы потерялись в этом мире, или хотите просто уйти от него, и почувствовать животный страх и непробиваемые стены ТИШИНЫ то это для вас новая работа Wings of an Angel “What Has Remained: The Lost Teachings Of The Antithesis” Никого не должна оставить равнодушным! слушайте и дабы ВЫ устрашились!!!”
Influenced by the genius renegade electrical engineer and teacher Eric P. Dollard who is better known as the modern day living Tesla. “Earth Stereo”by Telegraphy is a sound journey through the mind of this brilliant inventor. If synthesizers could speak of his work – they would sound like this. Speaking in occult mathematics and higher understanding of fundamental electronics, Telegraphy puts in motion the fundamentals of sound. With a full range of dub techno echos and reverb, each track contains hidden aspects of natural math and tonalities. Pushing the boundaries of the low end spectrum with base and plenty of it (just like with Eric’s experiments) Telegraphy opens up a new door to revel a new direction for dub techno to go in.
“In My Darkest Dreams (night diary of a poète maudit in earthly exile)”
Wings of an Angel es un artista envuelto en un halo de misterio; enigmático, quizá como todo verdadero artista, y que crea su obra desde al anonimato. Su concepción del arte va en dirección completamente opuesta a la de la popularidad o el éxito, no digamos ya los fines comerciales, algo que le repugna:
“…proclamo: dejen de vender el arte y de tratarlo como bienes comerciales. ¿Por qué lo hacen? En mi caso, quiero que mi arte llegue a todo el mundo … no soy un artista comercial y no estoy interesado en vender mi música, no tengo que romperme la cabeza con todas esas ridículas leyes de Copyright. Que, por cierto, son un insulto criminal a la creatividad.” (Intangible23)
Su obra no busca entretener sino una comunión espiritual y trascendental con el oyente. Su poesía sonora le habla siempre al espíritu del individuo, a su subconsciente mas profundo, recóndito y escondido. Y es que en la obra de Wings of an Angel, todos los caminos conducen al yo interior, el verdadero, mas allá de convenciones formales o sociales. En este “misticismo postmoderno”, como el mismo lo define, todo termina cayendo por los abismos infinitos del alma.
En esta ocasión lleva al extremo su pasión y predilección por la oscuridad, para aplicarla al sonido; prescinde totalmente del uso de voces (spoken word), referencias Hip-Hop, instrumentos sampleados o mezclas con elementos de música tradicional como ha sólido hacer, de manera magistral, en trabajos anteriores, como por ejemplo en el espectacular (“Requiem For An Anonymous Genius (The Breath Of Life, Carnal Annihilation And Miraculous Resurrection Of The Job Of Art)”).
En este ultimo trabajo usa únicamente drones y sonidos abstractos que generan atmósferas realmente oscuras, intensas y profundas: “Diría que el sonido, en su más pura ausencia de forma, es probablemente la expresión más espiritual de lo divino…” (Intangible23)
En “In my darkest dream”, publicada de nuevo por el netlabel paralucid, Wings of an Angel nos invita a un viaje por sus sueños mas oscuros, que a este nivel son quizá iguales a los tuyos y los míos.
Estos sueños, por los textos que acompañan cada pista, tienen como escenario una ciudad vacía; son recorridos nocturnos por calles recónditas, zonas aisladas, infraestructuras semiabandonadas de ciudades decadentes por cuyas grietas y fallas también se filtra el subconsciente colectivo. En una oscuridad rodeada de lagrimas, con la luz de una tenue luna, son paseos en los que escapar de una soledad elegida, autoimpuesta pero también insoportable; en busca de lo sublime, el infinito trascendental.
We are bringing some soothing ambient waves in these days of autumn sunsets.
Hailing from a suburb outside of Los Angeles, California, Gilbert finds his inspiration in deep calm sounds after taking long night walks listening to the sounds of the world that help him open his imagination for new creative embodiments all the time. After countless hours of producing anywhere from progressive to dynamic underground electronic music Gilbert rest’s his productions in deep ambient dub sounds. Being a unique compelling producer Gilbert has a massive passion in music.
Welcome to our deep music family one more gifted producer that holds a lot to tell us.
My whole life, I’ve marveled at the ease in which so-called charismatic leaders – political, educational, spiritual, therapeutic etc’ – have led their followers and others in their surrounding to total oblivion.
If there’s one and single insight that you are ought to fetch from my ruminations, it is this: THINK AND STAND FOR YOURSELF, DON’T LOCK YOURSELF IN A HELL THAT YOU AND/OR OTHERS CREATE FOR YOU.
In my perception, It’s always better to answer for your own actions, for better or for worse, than to act by proxy and hide behind bullies, real or imaginary. Such is the path of truly brave men and women.
So, are you truly brave or do you prefer to hide behind your chosen dogma and skydive unto an inescapable hell?
Sheep floating in the Dead Sea.
Roborods around ashore.
Life hovering unseen.
Eyal Greengrass’ fulminant debut of amazing melodic electronics sends lovely harmonics and playful seriousness from Israels shores to the interested world. Crispy elements meet beautiful leads. Slower paced tracks go hand in hand with some upbeat tracks.
After several experiments with psychedelic and jazz rock, collaborative projects with different style musicians and poets, Pk Jazz Collective have returned to old rock traditions of making music. “Red-Headed Woman”, released on Southern City’s Lab has became an expression of Pk Jazz’s musicians experience in perception of “how to make simple but impressive rock album.
“Psycho is the third and final installment in the ‘Evils trilogy’ from Adam Radmall aka Plusplus
consisting of eight new tracks that continue on a similar theme to the two previously acclaimed albums‘Evils’ (2010) and ‘Game Over’ (2012).Compared with the first two Plusplus albums, Psycho is more a collaboration with Bryan Styles (Plantman) and Rob Scillitoe contributing on drums and double bass respectively. Producer John Hannon also contributed significantly. The result is much more of an organic sound that reveals another side of the plusplus yet retains a similar mix of brooding atmospheres and circadian rhythms punctuated by playful folk melodies evident on previous work.”
There’s nobody other than yourself to blame for the grave love affairs you conduct on a daily basis with the ghosts of your past…
Ghosts are your past. You are nobody without your ghosts. Forevermore haunting you. ‘Till you or the world will dissolve into infinity in a majestic double exposure moment. Just like that, you will become a transient shadow. And you will forget everything. No… Perhaps you will remember just this: Your eternal loneliness while you were alive.
sometimes, one is required to be a warrior for so long, that you have trouble putting down your sword.
The year Love almost died inside me,
it was a year fraught with trial and tribulation,
elations of successes waylaid by new responsibilities;
and these new responsibilities,
they almost took the joy away.The year Love almost died inside me,
it almost died in all it’s forms;
Love for my fellow brother,
my fellow sister,
relations both amorous and familial,
as all the joys that were supposed to be inside me were almost detained.
The pain inside me almost surmounted all my senses,
as I lost touch with the capacity to feel Love in it’s greatest fulfillment;
I touched the face of the divine in dreams,
this was barely enough to keep my sense of Love sane.
Once again, we are proud to present one of Sweden´s finest pop acts, the Malmö-based indie outfit EMERALD PARK. This is our fifth release by the band and one of their best recordings so far. Enjoy the music!
TWG turns two today! And to celebrate, sleepytimejesse has offered up a highly emotional, broken ambient release teeming with atmosphere, dread and serenity.
Sounding almost like soundtrack to a giallo film crossed with a haunted tape deck, Goblin via Trent Reznor, sleepytimejesse carves out an 18 minute cascade sounding more like tonal poetry than anything else in the chiptune scene today. This release also does a good job of summarising TWG’s long-held mission statement: esoteric music full of emotion, the experimental and the affective glued together.
It’s hard to describe a piece of work that is as much felt as it is heard, so instead, celebrate our anniversary with us by turning off the lights and the music up: it’s definitely a journey worth taking.
Waves and synergies. And if I think ‘bout dancing seasides and hot nites is ‘cause I can’t switch off from my i-pod the debut of the mysterious Nowhere Fast with her Louder EP produced by Sostanze Records. It’s a full piece of work, enterin’ into the electronic music scene on tiptoe, dominating it very fastly. And so Louder takes shape, a beach cocktail, 1/3 chillwave, 1/3 synthpop and 1/3 dreampop. Focusing on the synth component is a way to deeply meet Nowhere Fast, almost partecipating to the born of Louder. There will be a great talk ‘bout her, and this more than a greeting is a firm belief of the net-label. Her core is the underground, future is in evolution. Whenever I’m down, I call one of my friend.
Don’t get fooled by the title of Sucu Music’s new offering, which is Italian for “Morning Mists”. Stephen Briggs is a guitarist from New Zealand whose inspiration seems to be international, judging by the multilingual titles he gives to his tracks. “Nebbie Mattutine” is a very fine example of guitar-oriented ambient and soundscapes album, ranging from quiet, gentle sounds to noisier, darker tracks which add new dimensions to his sound palette.
If Kai Engel’s third album showed his abilities as a composer of cinematic soundtracks for historical films, then his new work gets us back to the neoclassical tone of sound, only with far greater versatility and skill. Once again you’ll hear lyrical melodies born in joys and sadnessess of love, inspired by a melancholy in the night, a light sorrow and urban romantics.
