suffer fools released the gothically beautiful “i am the one” earlier this year. Now we have a visual accompaniment, featuring strange and wonderful found footage.
Brigante (aka Geneviève Bernier) delivers a doomy diva gem, which blends gothic country, noise pop and torch music.
Lauded experimental instrumentalist extraordinaire Colin Fisher (I Have Eaten the City, Caribou, Sing that Yell that Spell) has formally teamed up with talented photographer and electronic composer Ilyse Krivel for their debut as Tikkun Olam. The sounds they concoct together are a heady sonic stew of spirit-stirring jazz saxophone and groovy guitar phrases mixed with psychedelic synths, subtle sound design and detailed beat programming that draws from a myriad of rhythmic and textural influences.
Check out the beautiful and strange album/lengthy EP below and don’t miss “Ion” or “Daughter of the Moon” on your listening adventure.
One of the greatest rappers of all time dropped this impactful comeback single back in late May as part of the docuseries “Cypher”, which discusses the difficult topic of mental health through the medium of music. D-Sisive eloquently and insightfully rhymes about depression, addiction and his six year absence from creating music with his measured flow and natural storytelling charisma. It’s emotionally heavy, it’s clever, and yes, it bops.
Prolific ambient composer Anne Sulikowski presents one of her most beautiful works to date in Tabla Rasa. This soothing, meditative instrumental EP prominently features the titular percussive wordplay, anchoring Sulikowski’s ethereal strains of guitar and/or synth (it’s hard to tell with her chameleon effects wizardry) to hypnotic tabla beats.

Purveyors of Free Will (aka Mark Anthony Brennan) releases his first EP in 3 years. Although primarily an instrumental (electronic) affair, the lyrical content adds a personally expressive dimension to tracks such as “The Day My Sister Ran Into the Sea” and “My God Has No Memory”.
From Montreal, the post-rock capital, comes Yoo Doo Right with their own twist on the genre. Things move faster at a post-punk pace and they don’t shy away from electronic. Dig the track “Presto Presto, Bella’s Dream”.
The startlingly original Jessica Cho (aka Korea Town Acid) goes jazzy trip-hop in this sparkling number.
Electronic/sound artist Andrew Collins Is as creative as ever, presenting a track with a slinky and mysterious vibe.
