Welcome to a new blog feature! This one is actually quite simple – it’s just a run-down of new releases scheduled for the week. I’m not covering anything released on Jamendo because it’s not scheduled…they kind of just pop up unexpectedly.
Here’s what you can expect for the week of November 8th, 2011:
Beyond Time & Space – Selknam Records Compilation – November 7th, 2011 – Okay, bit of a cheat, but the well was a little dry for tracking down new releases from various netlabels. Selknam Records is a new label, focusing on “progressive psytrance” – whatever that is. Check out more releases at Ektoplazm.
Jorge Saxon – Something Like Jazz (PHONOcast 1) – November 7th, 2011 – I sense a theme here, and that theme is “maybe I should say week of November 7th”. This release comes from Good Netlabels, which specializes in Nujazz, Downtempo, and Hip-Hop. Something Like Jazz looks like it has a little of all of those genres mixed in there. Check out similar releases from Good Netlabels.
Joe Frawley – Curious Perspectives – November 8th, 2011 – This is an interesting-sounding album. It’s a solo piano effort from the Clinical Archives netlabel by New London, Connecticut pianist Joe Frawley. The description from Clinical Archives says it’s an homage to French mathmatician and painter Jean François Niceron. Too much detail to go in here, but suffice it to say his work was all about geometrically distorting images to create something new. Sounds neat! Check out more releases from Clinical Archives.
Dustmotes – None For The Crow EP – November 2nd, 2011 – This offering is from Dusted Wax Kingdom, and the album is described as “a magical ambient, lo-fi, abstract hip-hop sound-therapy medicine, boosting the spiritual energy and turning the state of mind in a lovely hypnotic reverie.” Check it out! Hat tip to Blocsonic for sending this my way on Twitter.
That’s all I have this week. There was a Blocsonic release scheduled, unfortunately there were some technical difficulties involved and it’s delayed until next week. I’m going to try and collect more new releases for next week well before Monday so that I have a better list next Tuesday. Enjoy for now!
