Bul-Bul Tarang Gang – Kali



I've posted their second tape four years ago; this is their first one. Hypnotic, elegiac, Arab and raga-inspired psych rock, like a more lysergic, lo-fi Rhyton. 2012 tape on Sloow Tapes.

Arvo Pärt - Kanon Pokajanen (Cappella Amsterdam directed by Daniel Reuss)

Arvo Pärt - Kanon Pokajanen album cover 

I think there are three or four different recordings of Kanon Pokajanen; this is probably the most recent one. It's really one of Arvo's best works, actually many choir melodies on this one could be black metal or d-beat riffs. 2016 cd on Harmonia Mundi.

VYRYV x Morbid Debasement - Split

VYRYV - Split album cover

VYRYV is Lee Stokoe (Culver, etc, regular readers you know my worship) playing Posh Isolation-style synth ambient; Morbid Debasement plays more dark-ambient-ish with organ. Cool stuff. 2019 2X3" cdr.

Shady Glyphs - Meditations On Caligari's Shadow


Amazing devotional fourth-world pagan ambient ritual similar to Vibracathedral Orchestra and Million Brazilians by this unknown Yorkshire project (though I suspect an Ashtray Navigations connection...). 2019 cd on Memoirs Of An Aesthete.

Controlled Death – Music For The Death Cult Church


I don't know if this has been posted online, so here it is. 2022 sold out tape on Advaita Records featuring some of His purest evil/unnerving stuff, this time focusing on church organ on the first side.


PS: He's just released a new one on Deathbed Tapes, so my worries that he had stopped playing as Controlled Death or in general are now gone.

Dom Minasi String Quartet – Dissonance Makes The Heart Grow Fonder


Dom Minasi String Quartet - Dissonance Makes The Heart Grow Fonder album cover

 If Django Reinhardt played improvised this is what it would sound like. An avant-garde improvised - but also "structured" - string quartet with guitar destroying everything. 2009 cd on Konnex Records.
