Portrait is her 3rd full length LP for De Stijl, something quite impressive for anyone let alone of Fohr's age. The press release informs us that it is "Seemingly inspired by something or someone that has pierced her young, little heart". creating an album that is as much about cathartic release as intimate sonic journey.

Last Nights just stumbled upon a video for United Waters "Platetectonics" taken from the recent LP Your First Ever River. Some may already be familiar with Brian Sullivan, the man behind United Waters, & especially his work as 1/2 of the experimental noisniks Mouthus. In this case his new solo work may come as a bit of a surprise, but based upon the leading track heard above there seems to be much to unearth for newcomers & Mouthus fans a like.
Platetectonics is a ramshackled tune that merges beautiful guitar lines, electronic percussion, & fuzz in all the right ways. Along the way Sullivan low voice enters the picture offering a little melancholy & inspiration. While listening I'm constantly reminded of similar songsmiths of recent years. The work of Ben Chasny's Six Organs of Admittance standing at the forefront of my mind & ears. Yet even if briefly obscured by such references the overall composition structure manages to remind the listener of the uniqueness of Sullivan's work.
You can pick up United Waters Your First Ever River via the fine folks at Arbitrary Signs now.

A little Kosmiche -Kraut groove can go a long way sometimes. Lucky for us Jonas Reinhardt have recently dropped a new album via Not Not Fun titled Music For The Tactile Dome. The group have been mining the synth-kraut groove for a bit now, though maybe not as long as their german forefathers, having released their debut on Kranky in 2008.
That is not to say that Jonas Reinhardt are merely rehashing the sounds of some 30 odd years ago. The trio treat the listener to music that harkens back towards the classic sound of greats like Neu, Klaus Schulze, & recently rediscovered legend Harald Grosskopf. After all the comparison's have been depleted what is left over is a contemporary vision of the future past.
