Wonderful ambient music. João Hasselberg’s first album back in 2013 featured highly sophisticated jazz music with a classic jazz lineup including piano, saxophone and trumpet. Over the years his music became more and more electronical and minimalist.
I mentioned the experimental trio Fogh Depot before on this blog. They have released a new song which features singer and piano player Anastasia Minster. This is a slight diversion from their previous work, but great nonetheless. It’s half dream-pop and half glitchy electronica. I’m looking forward to their next album.
The mysterious Invisible Guest mixes Italian B-Movie sounds with Electronica.
No midnight ritual is complete without The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble. This is their remix of Kava Kon’s song Palace of the Tiger Women set to scenes from the Ray Harryhausen movie Jason and the Argonauts.
Take a 30 minute journey to the end of time. The video, based on facts and current scientific concepts, shows the future of our universe.
After 11 years, Pram from Birmingham have released a new album. If you don’t know them, I just quote the Bandcamp blurb which sums up pretty good what Pram is all about:
As with their previous albums, Across the Meridian mixes instrumentals and songs, weaving a gleeful path through the musical territory of film scores, 30s jazz, sun-drenched pop, electronica, and post-punk experimentation. Haunting and wistful vocals are set to a variety of soundscapes, sometimes appearing as a snatched fragment of the subconscious and dreamlike, at others crafting a story of longing or
regret, drawing the listener into Pram’s uncanny world through the mirror.
Newcomers to Pram will find a richly detailed collage of influences ranging from exotica, Krautrock and the forgotten film soundtracks that went on to inspire contemporaries Stereolab & Broadcast.
