Sean McCann - Chances Are Staying

Ambient, drone,
San Francisco, United States,

Download here!

Debut vinyl from Sean McCann. Beautiful and sometimes (somewhat) melancholic mostly violin-based stretched out ambience. Track two stands out because the drums are used - if I recall correctly, the first Sean McCann track ever to use drums. Fresh!

Chrome Wings - Time Patterns

Chrome Wings — Time Patterns c30 (Stunned no. 82)
Ambient, drone, Portland, United States, 2010

Nothing is exempt from evolution, and Portland’s Chrome Wings are a prime example of that principle when they take simple amoeboid sounds and swiftly sculpt them into electric body parts & sets of hi-fi feathers for the dance floor. With the magic and levity of storm clouds parting way to a rainbow or a kiss from a lover, ‘Time Patterns’ approaches unassumingly, yet leaves the listener breathless and wanting more a half-hour later. It’s a sound that’s taken Chrome Wings personal time & dedicated evolution to arrive at, obvious to all who’ve caught their recent live performances. Rhythms this juicy and soundforms this hypnotic in arrangement offer proof that we higher-primates can ascend toward the very stuff of dreams — in the club, at home, in the car, all of the above.

Tinah Maure - Macabruary

Moscow, Russia,

Download here!

The first track on the EP, "February" bears an uncanny resemblance to Robedoor, with its smokey desert riff accented with simple drumming, almost ritualistic in its nature. The end of first tracks features glacial, proto-Sunn O))) riffs layered upon truly hypnotic loops. The two remaining tracks, "Thief Dies From Lust" and "May (Dead Thief Version)" are way more in the noise territory and are barely (BARELY) recognizable melodies and barely (BARELY) audible drums hidden somewhere in the walls of deafening sounds. Think Goslings, but less melodic.

fuck, now i need to listen to some Goslings
