Les Baxter - The Original Quite Village/The Primitive & The Pas
This recent reissue brings together two full albums from Les Baxter’s 1960’s forays into exotica. Along with a handful of tracks from a Don Tiare album, which offers up covers of some of Baxter’s work. Both the Baxter albums are enjoyable rides into topical & mock ethnic tipped easy-listening, but I’m a little undecided about the quality & the addition of the Don Tiare tracks here.
The Dead End Street Band - After The Funeral...

The Dead End Street Band are a three piece project from North East of England who simmer up a decidedly 70’s/80’s focused sound that falls somewhere between synth bound horror soundtrack, subtle noise tone creep-ness, and eerier semi-industrial ambient tinged tone manipulation. After The Funeral is a CDR release from late 2013, and it features four fairly lengthy  tracks that fall between the 15-20 minute mark.


Myrkur - Myrkur
Do you like Deafheaven and Alcest? Do you want to listen to more black metal but the scary screaming is scaring you? Does the idea of one-woman black metal intrigue you? If you answered “Yes” to the following questions, Myrkur may be the band for you!
Hybryds - Mythical Music From The 21st Century
It’s always nice to finally hear material from a band/project you’ve heard mentioned in reference to other acts you like, and that brings us to the Cd in hand Hybryds Mythical Music From The 21st Century.  This was the Belgium bands first release from 1986, and it finds the project mix of ritual ambience, industrial tape loops, weird chanting, and genreal sonic unsettlement at its most primal, strange, disorienting, and surreal.
Arne Deforce & Mika Vainio - Hephaestus
Pan Sonic's Mika Vainio and cellist Arne Deforce have teamed up for an album called "Hephaestus".  On the album, one finds an often tonal yet intensely distorted and abrasive sound which I might describe as "extreme drone".  The digital grit of Vainio's guitar and the emotive, quavering whine of the distorted cello meld together in a crisp, burnt mass.
John Kannemberg - A Sound Map Art Institute of Chicago
This CDR on Hungary’s 3leaves takes us on an hour long sonic journey through the Art Institute of Chicago. And while the idea of a 60 minute sound recording of a Art Institute, museum, or any form of  exhibition may sound like it going to be rather point-less, uneventful, &  pretentious … I’m surprised/happy to say, that this is quite a compelling & interesting little trip .
