I adore artist who actively pursue development and experiments. James Holden is one such artist. With his latest work he leaves the dancefloor behind for the mystical forests of electronic infused tribal trance with some jazzy tones. Sounds interesting? It's because it is. A damn good experiment!

A mesmerizing though unsettling ambient record that really grips the listener. The soundscapes are much like the cover art; seemingly simple yet abstract, but take a closer look and you can see there is all kinds of stuff happening beyond first glance, or apprehension.

A masterfully crafted work of twisting and dark ambient. Using all kinds of apparatus and devices, Ulver crafts twisting melodies and gloomy soundscapes to an artform.

Seeing Skuggsjá (Wardruna & Enslaved) perform live was a real privilege, since it wasn't really supposed to be more then a one time thing. The record that wasn't supposed to be made is here now and it's a proper reflection of the project. Deep folk and roaring folk-black metal.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore is a lovely darkjazz project and their latest release 'Dolores' takes a lighter take on the whole. The sound is less noir, gloomy and a bit friendlier in the keys-department. Nice, but not the depressive darkness I seek here.

This wasn't at all what I expected. The first track 'Made of Metal' on 'Ruins' with a black cover would suggest something heavy. Not a piano-laden, modest singer-songwriter record. That said, it still is a lovely record with a lot of depth and feeling in the sounds.

Khanate is a unique piece of work. It sounds like a band dying in the studio and recording every last bit of it. Prepare to not be swayed away by layers of noise, but rather be thrown into a bathtub of rusty razors and salt. This is meant to hurt.
