Mountainhood. Spagyric

Mountainhood. Spagyric (gnome life records, 2013)

"Tracks range between dark woodland psychedelics, tender folk ballads, new age synth instrumentals, musique concrete, and more all channeled through the truly powerful imagination and mystical perspective that is Mountainhood. This tape contains tone-portals, poetic-gateways, song-ships that can transport you far-out to the furthest reaches of a science fiction landscape, or far-in to your own mysterious psycho-spiritual depths." Gnome Life Records

Odessey & Oracle. Odessey & Oracle and The Casiotone Orchestra

Odessey & Oracle. Odessey & Oracle and The Casiotone Orchestra (carton records, 2014)

"Odessey & Oracle are inspired by the freedom that the late sixties represented, and rather than being restricted by revivalism, have appropriated and updated that sense of daring spirit. This allows for a wider range of influences which include artists as diverse as Bach, the Dirty Projectors , Brian Wilson , White Noise , Moondog and Robert Wyatt. Recorded with the help of a dozen musical accomplices (the titular Casiotone Orchestra), the results are an impressively, and often exhaustingly, varied selection of songs which will likely leave your head reeling. One moment it's a gorgeous piece of baroque pop balladry, then it's chamber strings, and a moment later, electro-pop." The Active Listener

Big Blood. Unlikely Mothers

Big Blood. Unlikely Mothers (blackest rainbow, 2014)

"Big Blood's sound is rooted in folk and prime 60s / 70s garage pscyh. This new double LP sees them focus more the electric side of things than on some previous releases with the addition of drummer, Shon. The record was recorded after Colleen spent a lot of time listening to Sabbath, Zepp and Dead Moon, so it definitely has a heavier vibe than some of their past releases." Blackest Rainbow

Sea Oleena. Sleeplessness

Sea Oleena. Sleeplessness (bridgetown records, 2011)

"Montréal multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Oline makes hushed folk as Sea Oleena" but to end the description there is an understatement. Her unique style of folk is lovingly draped in a refined blend of shoegaze and ambient melodies that cradle fragile song structures and lyrical interplay. Seemingly simple songs have layers of textures that swirl, vanish and return like clouds in the wind." Pitchfork

La Ligne Claire. La Ligne Claire

La Ligne Claire. La Ligne Claire (los emes del oso, 2011)

"A new-ish/no-ish French band plunks together unsteady junkshop/Dumpstered songs with a loose togetherness that can only come from practice, but an amateurish sensibility that says otherwise (members hover around the 18-year-old mark). My first instinct was Magik Markers territory, but the strictness of the drumming (played slowly, not an easy feat) and the consistency of themes within tell me otherwise: these two women and two men are in the process of writing their own musical language out of some fairly warped parts. No Wave to the core, but they’ve got better things to do than stand around trying to peel paint. Great effort that’ll appeal to a lot of you looking for something weird." Doug Mosurock
