João Hasselberg – The Great Square Of Pegasus

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.

Mamiffer – All That Is Beautiful

A new song by Mamiffer from the upcoming album. Mamiffer is one the gazillion bands Aaron Turner is involved in, but the band is actually the brainchild of his wife, Faith Coloccia. Mamiffer plays ambient post-rock.

Lost Souls of Saturn – The Awakening

The short film follows the quest to trigger revelations in psychic
entanglement by disrupting transmissions from the malevolent Holoverse – a frequency that is used to enslave minds and generate oppression.

Que? Whether you enjoy this abstract story concept or not, this is an intriguing music video with powerful visuals and hypnotic sound. Reminds me a little of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s movies. Plus, I like it when a music video is a short film.

Kammerflimmer Kollektief – There are actions which we have neglected and which never cease to call us

New Album by the Kammerflimmer Kollektief. Full of creaking and crackling and haunting melodies. Recommended for listeners of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble / The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, Dale Cooper, Earth and the like. This marks the 10th album in their career spanning 20 years.

Pram – Across the Meridian

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.
