Lingua Lustra | Red Shift Silent (DL) Opening with the title cut (or Redshift), this half-hour long recording has an undulating and synthetic quality. Red Shift is Lingua Lustra‘s latest ambient evolution and the Dutch wave bender Albert Borkent’s first release of 2019 (he put out four separate releases last year). This is not your […]

France Jobin | Solitude Silent (DL) Honestly I sit here and wonder how much solitude this lady is getting these days, after spying on social media, what looked as though an all-encompassing trip around the world to down under, only to return to wintery Montreal where she is labouring in her spare time on water […]

Deeper Than Space | Polysun Silent Records (DL) Adam Douglas is Deeper Than Space and this is just his second under this moniker since back in the Bay Area rave days (circa mid 90s), in follow up to 2017’s The Mountain. In three tracks that run over an hour this is a departure from those […]

MAKING (+ Breaking) SOUND BARRIERS + TAKING NAMES!: Compilations are often a dime a dozen, ordinarily they are showcases for a label, and unless the material is exclusive to it, are a bit of a hard sell in general.

This […]

Transportation/Transformation: It’s an aural illusion of sine waves when you first put on this new record from David Lee Myers. Apparitions (digital download from Silent Records) runs about an hour over the course of nine tracks that are at once jarring, and curious (as heard on Phantasm). This eerie disquiet leads a thirsty foraging for […]

Just released this month, Emanate is the latest and twenty-third full-length from Freiband (Frans de Waard), this time appearing on Silent Records. As one of many long-serving side projects for de Waard the hour-long affair is made up of two long tracks billed as Part 1 and Part 2. Similar to past recordings by the […]

From Limerick-based musician 7prs (aka Robin Parmar) comes Division by Zero on the thankfully rebooted San Francisco-based Silent Records. The label was founded back in ’85 and active through the very early 00’s until being revived by sound-bender Kim Cascone in 2016.  Over five tracks that run about an hour the listener is drenched in […]
