Album Leaf – A Chorus of Storytellers

Posted in Electronic, Electronica, Experimental, Mood, Post-classical, Rock on January 21, 2010 by E.N.


A Chorus of Storytellers was recorded by Ryan Hadlock in the frosty month of February 2009 at Bear Creek Studio just outside of Seattle. It was mixed in the decidedly warmer month of June in Reykjavik, Iceland by Birgir Jon Birgisson (of Sigur Ros). For the first time in five albums, The Album Leaf recorded as a whole band. In the past, almost every instrument was performed by principal songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jimmy LaValle. This time the whole band was invited to participate and the result is their best record yet.

This title will be released on February 2, 2010.

The Notwist – Sturm OST

Posted in Electronic, Electronica, Experimental, Modern Classical, OST, Post-classical on September 19, 2009 by E.N.


*LIMITED EDITION FILM SOUNDTRACK FROM THE NOTWIST ON A DELUXE VINYL PRESSING THAT INCLUDES A FREE CD COPY OF THE ALBUM AND A 24-PAGE BOOK OF FILM STILLS* Following up last year’s triumphant The Devil, You + Me album, The Notwist return to their soundtracking activities, once again collaborating with filmmaker Hans-Christian Schmid. These two parties previously worked together on 2003’s Lichter, resulting in an EP length OST from The Notwist, and Sturm is characterised by a similarly intricate blend of modern classical composition and minimal electronic gestures. The band are joined by Alien Transistor labelmates Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra on the introductory piece ‘Vilina Kosa Version’, ushering in the album with ponderous intervals, microtonal string squeals and atmospherically charged two-note piano figures. After this suspenseful, brooding opener the album settles down into the deep, bell-like resonance of ‘Jan’, whose minor-key drones channel various instruments through a pattern of granular loops. Following on in a more rhythmically engaged fashion is ‘Sarajevo 1′, whose miniature jitter-beats combine with elongated tones spun from a small ensemble of woodwind and strings – there’s even some bowed tuned percussion in the mix. These rather abstracted elements become more naturalistic and pronounced over the course of ensuing compositions like ‘Prayer’, ‘Jonas’ and ‘The Hague’, the latter of which takes on a panoramic, subtly dramatised tone thanks to its flooded, ambient orchestration and scrunched beat arrangements. The final piece, ‘Sturm 2′, is a particular highlight, launching into unfettered melodicism with only the mildest electronic smudging interfering with its lyrical strings-vs-piano constitution. Sturm’s combination of electronic treatment with morose, impressionistic acoustic instrumentation makes for a potent soundtrack work and a worthy successor to their Lichter EP, still retaining plenty of that Notwist magic you hear so much of on the band’s ‘proper’ albums. Including both vinyl and CD formats, this release also includes a 24-page book of film stills, giving you a glimpse at the project in its fuller context. Limited copies only – and a must-have item from this exceptional band.

Themselves & WHY? – Canada (iamxl remix)

Posted in Downtempo, Electronica, Promotions on September 5, 2009 by E.N.


The beautiful new collaboration from Themselves and WHY? (anticon records) gets the iamxl remix touch.

Both groups have shifted from their usual hip-hop style to this experimental track which conjures up thoughts of the Postal Service, Air, and Death Cab for Cutie.

iamxl drops in with a club re-touch that retains the downtempo nature of the original.

Themselves & WHY? – Canada (original mix) (mediafire) or Fairtilizer

Labels We Love: Type Records-XLR8R Podcast

Posted in Avant, Dark Ambient, Drone, ElectroAcoustic, Electronica, Experimental, Modern Classical, Post-classical, XLR8R Podcast on August 19, 2009 by E.N.


Whittling down the candidates to make XLR8R’s annual list of Labels We Love is no easy task, but the inclusion of experimental U.K. label Type Records was a no-brainer. In fact, we like the label so much that we commissioned label head John Twells (a.k.a. Xela) to put together a mix encapsulating the imprint’s unique mix of ambient and drone sounds with just enough pop melodies to keep things interesting. Stunningly gorgeous and never lacking in emotional heft, the Type Records podcast not only features some choice rarities and unreleased cuts—it also just might be one of the most beautiful sound pieces to ever grace XLR8R.com.

Labels We Love: Type Records
01 Grouper “Way Their Crept” (from TYPE020 Way Their Crept)
02 Richard Skelton “Greens Within Brook” (from TYPE055 Landings)

04 Goldmund “Ouendake” (from TYPE039 Malady Of Elegance)
05 Sylvain Chauveau “Je Suis Vivant Et Vous Etes Morts” (from TYPE025 The Black Book Of Capitalism)
06 Xela “In Misericordia” (from TYPE043 In Bocca Al Lupo)
07 On “Too Many Demons Still Haunt This Land” (from TYPE050 Your Naked Ghost Comes Back At Night)
08 Sanso-Xtro “Minus Ecki” (from TYPE007 Sentimentalist)
09 Rameses III “Across The Lake Is Where My Heart Shines” (from TYPE052 I Could Not Love You More)
