The Black Lodge is a four track EP of ethereal shapes as the electronica folds in to itself like melting wax with a spectral vocal wrapping in to the ears – the vaguely sinister nature of the songs is delivered through both a jagged edge of drum-pad and the menacing bass which give the tracks their darkness.
The first song to be revealed from the EP is the second track – Killer.
The Brazilian electro-lofi project Electric Light Pulp released the LP I’m Not Here on the 13th.
Electric Light Pulp
An eight track album of instrumentation and electronica which has dour air which slowly envelopes the room in a grey shroud like a thick fog, leaving the listener encased in a ghostly soundscape that flickers dark shadowy figures which are never fully revealed.
The fourth of the eight tracks on the LP (available on bandcamp) is Who Am I?.
The Brazilian experimental-electronica creator Vicente Saraiva who performs under the name Spyke, The Boy released the LP TILASIM on the 29th of March.
Spyke, The Boy
It is when you meet musical suggestions such as this that it will remind you why you read the site with a sense of anticipation or remind you why you often find it far more obscure than you recall last time visited.
The sixth track of the seven on TILASIM – New – is a just over six and three quarter minutes of isolated pulse that skips through the ears akin to the visual display of an ICU monitor as it traces arrhythmia.
The Brazilian experimental-lofi project Electric Light Pulp released the LP In Reverse on the 6th.
Electric Light Pulp
Introduced earlier in the year in In Reverse, Electric Light Pulp, takes the compositions to an even more experimental level with an eclectic range of ambient tracks on the six track album (available on bandcamp).
My pick of the release is the penultimate – Nearly Awake On The Analogic Universe which lasts for only just under two and a half minutes, but seems to hold time in abeyance with sounds of dial-up modems and shifting tempos that uncurl through the room.
