King Dude - Love (Dais Records)
Songs of dark love, love of dark songs. This guy is writing and playing music with his heart. Moving!
Le Révélateur - Fictions LP (Gneiss Things)
Fly Pan Am's Roger Tellier-Craig unleashes is new project Le Révélateur. Kosmische musik comes from Montréal too!
Iceage - New Brigade LP (Dais Records)
They are young. They are from the land of the Vikings and fjords. But they rock as hell. Hardcore infused post-punk that links DC sound to the UK early 80s scene.
Mark Hollis - Mark Hollis LP (Ba Da Bing Records)
Reissue of the year! Talk Talk mastermind sole solo album but what a masterpiece. Where you realize that silence is music.
Discipline - En Provence LP (Scum Yr Earth)
Journalist, musician, music freak Joseph Ghosn is releasing his new album under the Discipline moniker on his own label. Ambient-ish drones not dissimilar to Biosphere and LaMonte Young at the same time. Just beautiful!
