On the 5th of August The Inconsistent Jukebox will be releasing the one track plus three remix single Bold Ego Fledgling featuring the vocals of Ang Kerfoot from the USA.

The original version of the track splinters like an out of control lathe sheering shards of hot metal fragments that dart around the room scarring the walls.

Seaside Holiday is an outfit I intend to come back to with a full review in due course, for now a brief introduction.

The second track of the eleven on the approximately fifty minutes running-time of Grand Tours (available on bandcamp) and my pick of the release – gives a decent indicator of their sound. Wartime Recollections is housed in an enclosing wrapping of mossy synth while flickering candles of percussion pace around the room to the accompaniment of the expansive ethereal vocal that is a hallmark of their sound.

Chvad SB – Phenomenalism, Cartesian Doubt and Bomb #20 – Audio

The US experimental-music creator Chvad SB was introduced a couple of years ago.

His latest release Phenomenalism, Cartesian Doubt and Bomb #20 (available on bandcamp), although only a one track single is best heard when you have plenty of time to wrap yourself in the contusions as it lasts for over seventy three minutes.

Created by using feedback loops made, not by computer or human input, rather by a modular synthesiser.  Phenomenalism, Cartesian Doubt and Bomb #20 was a concept first considered back in 2014 and took four months to complete the recording. Despite being randomly generated loops the track has a hauntingly hypnotic organic sound.
