Heroines Of The U.S.S.R - March 6th

Heroines Of The U.S.S.R - Spring Snow
Label: Archaic Horizon
Catalog#: AH023
Format: 4 x File, MP3, 192 kbps
Country: US
Released: 02 Apr 2008
Genre: Electronic
Style: Ambient
Heroines of the U.S.S.R constructed 'Spring Snow' with manipulated field recordings layered upon various instruments including the glockenspiel, guitar, and trumpet, as well as other homemade instruments. The sound of which is then deconstructed into an aged and grainy fury of soft kinetic tones, which wander about the periphery of the stereo field.
Each track posses a living force that is elemental to the operation of its change. This distinct underlying force that drives 'Spring Snow' through its slow and steady transitions is manifested through the degradation of prolonged tones. The weathered sonics thaw in the layers of thermal distortion and freeze into an icy frost after being sheltered from the sun. Cycling through these processes creates a sound enlivened with a chilling mobility that activates the listener's space.

Counterspark - Highways

Counterspark - Existence EP
Label: Archaic Horizon
Catalog#: AH029
Format: 4 x File, MP3, EP, 192 kbps
Country: US
Released: 08 Jan 2009
Genre: Electronic
Style: Electro, Minimal, Ambient
Existence by Counterspark is filled with a warm, rustic color palette and sun-washed sonic atmospheres, which it aptly captures in the cover art. The EP expresses a delicacy in sonic depth, with subtle layering of sounds that provide a rich timbre and offer more thorough listening.
Existence is forward in its celebration of nature with a short and sweet presentation. With simple song titles like "Dawn" and "Highways", Counterspark seems to evoke a common duality of nature in opposition to industry. The critique, sonically, is soft-spoken buried within melody and murky atmospheric ambience. Comprised of four beatless songs, Existence feels like an optimistic outlook across countryside mixed with subtle melancholia from encroaching industry.

Idmonster - The force may be with you

Idmonster - The Force May Be With You
Label: Monotonik
Catalog#: mtk.mp3.051
Format: File, MP3, 128 kbps
Country: US
Released: 15 Apr 2001
Genre: Electronic
Style: IDM, Ambient
Monotonik - Netlabel for IDM, breakbeats and chiptunes.
It was launched in 1996 out of the .MOD/tracker scene and boasts over 350 downloadable releases.
"The Force May Be With You is a truly divine track, starting in a sea of disembodied voice fragments and cosmic chord co-location, before adding layer on layer of pastoral strings, theremin (?), and jittering that percussive speech over and over, like instant transportation between thousands of conversations every second.
And sometimes it sounds a little like the most laidback air-raid siren in the world ever, cranking up. We like that." - Monotonik

Muhr Crucial Opponent

Muhr - Her Fall Themes
Format: CDr, Mini-Album, Limited Edition
Country: Canada
Released: 2010
"At this time last year, i thought Muhr was dead. I thought my last album Farewell Anthology was a fitting end. But then something happened and just staring at my piano wouldn't just cut it anymore. I composed the first 7 songs on this ep last Autumn out of a mix of hope, desperation and melancholy.
I'm re-releasing this album with 3 new tracks on it....
This is the final Muhr album." - Vincent Fugère (aka Muhr).

NCThompson - A Silent Goodbye

A Silent Goodbye; from the NCThompson debut release: Another Quiet Winter. Few thoughts from the artist himself:
“I think the title of this release almost says it all. These songs just seem connected by
the loneliness of looking up and seeing nothing but a cold gray sky; when all that’s left
is a longing feeling for times once passed. And as depressing as that may sound, I think
there’s something to be said for the kind of emotions that such longing can inspire.”

Hopefully the new ep is on it's way!
"My newest track, another venture in the ambient genre. Hopefully this will be released as part of a small ambient EP later this year, if I can get things together." NCThompson:

Bosques de mi mente - Otoño
Released the 29th of November of 2010.
"Otoño is an album of melancholic, intimist, minimalist music for piano. It has been recorded entirely of live improvisations, during 6 days of the fall of 2010, just as the music emerged from the forests of my mind to my fingers. It is an album of direct, sincere, quiet music to linger over." - Bosques de mi mente.

Audiokonstrukte (album:City Echos, released in 2010) brings a fine blend of space and urban chillout electronica.Catchy production with many Lo-Fi sounds and a certain IDM touch. Audiokonstrukte creates jazzy, noisy electro awash with dub reggae influences. Beautiful deep synth sounds and bouncy, tight drum beats combine with funky square basslines, with some glitched out echoes and bleeps and blips thrown in for good measure.There are also a lot of simulated natural sounds; sounds you would expect to hear in your backyard just before the sun touches the horizon...

offthesky - Noon Peach

Offthesky is Jason Corder from Kentucky, USA.
As he personally reports on his website, the creative process behind his work is very particular:
"Each album concept surrounds the use of chaos theory and weather patterns to drive the movement, texture, timbres, tone, and dynamic of each recorded instrument (actually, temperature records and collated barometric pressure pattern data as well as fractal mathematics have been mined and interpolated to drive reaktor(vst) or max/msp dsp lfo/parameters).
The methods for creating an album are usually as evolved and random as the sky patterns they are inspired from.
Yet an axiom of offthesky is to keep each album conceptually based upon a theme."
His EP; Dwelling Spells, doesn't break these rules; composed around a specific concept, it evolves from the idea of an old lonely abandoned house that is full of growing things and subtle new organic life, as depicted on the cover which was taken by italian photographer Fulvio Romiti.
The music is evocative yet nostalgic of something past (a place, a room, an atmosphere...) which doesn't exist anymore, yet has become more poetic and fascinating than the untouched state.

Oskar Hallbert (from the Stockholm tape 2)

Oskar Hallbert is a musician who lives in a house in the woods in the north Sweden.
"I'm interested in numbers, and I'm interested in failures. Fibonacci tried to make a number sequence that would show how a population of rabbits grew.
Turns out his number sequence is worthless if you try to show how a rabbit population grows - BUT he unwillingly discovered something far more interesting. Turns out that the Fibonacci numbers appear everywhere in nature, in the proportion of our bodies, in the way that sunflowers organize there seeds, in the way branches grow on a tree and the way leafs grow on the branches, in the way eagles fly towards their preys - everywhere. The Fibonacci numbers are the closest we've got to mathematically understand the laws by which our world is created.
It's a quite personal album. I like my music to be somewhat documentary.
Almost all songs are based on an improvisation, and then digital editing and overdubbing, arranging and more overdubbing and more editing.
Most of the snippets origin from my mp3-player, with which I've recorded stuff that happened and places I've visit. They make a mosaique, that sums up my life during the time I made the songs.
And there is a few samples, a little from the tv show "This is our music", one from the movie "Harrold and Maude" ,..., and of course Sture Dahlstrom, one my favorite authors (who played jazz before he started writing). He goes: "I haven't touch my guitar for 40 years now, guess I wanna know if there's still some music in me."
I was really into Fibonaccis numbers at the time, it's a beautiful sequence. And I just liked the idea of a record with 89 tracks. And I needed something to arrange my music around. The number sequence did it."

The Demo Vault (one): avail at the RAI store until Jan 15. http://rafaelantonirisarri.bandcamp.com/album/the-demo-vault-one

Kabana - Front

Kabana - Front EP
The title track is a study in relentless pads, cyclic bass, clicky minimal rhythms, and the odd ethereal swoosh. On the flipside, Cardiogram is a slightly dubbier affair, bringing the heartbeat-like bass to the foreground and underpinning it with clicks and sporadic pads. Just the kind of understated melodic ambience we know you love so much, with the perfect balance between progression and repetition.

Free and legal download here:

The Inventors Of Aircraft - All, Nothing

The Inventors of Aircraft - Unknown Language.
"These obscure symbols lend themselves well to the music, for 'Unknown Language' has very definite leanings towards the world of science and indeed science fiction. The album has a vast, almost monolithic sound that builds relentlessy. On the track 'Passing' it is not difficult to imagine that the title may be a reference to some gargantuan satellite, a slow paced yet immovable object casting a shadow over some desolate alien landscape far below.
The pieces meld into one another flitting between earthy and organic soundscapes to more overtly electronic and droney pieces."
