Music post #6: Review of Gamlor’s Atemlos Durch mix on Soundcloud

Let me state right from the start that I do not know Gamlor, I have never met him, and I have never had an online conversation with him. That being said, I have adored Gamlor’s mixes for many years now. Gamlor started off in the late 00’s creating “moombahton” mixes and putting them online.  Moombahton

Guest Post #1 – Eel Six reviews: Cogwheel Dogs

I am listening to “Cycles Repeat” right now. It’s soothing and melodic and yet I want to find meaning. ‘Meaning,’ (ha ha), this could provoke the ramblings of words torn apart by the vicious strings of guitars and double bass. That’s how I feel when I hear Rebecca sing … I see highways (and I

Edwyn Collins and The Heartbreaks

Awesome artists and their music.   Picture the scene:  one of your favourite artists of all time is playing a concert soon in a nearby city.  You really want to go and see the show, but you don’t have transport.  OK, you have a car, but if you drive there you won’t be able to

Music post #2 – Listen, The Snow Is Falling review

Relaxing, interesting, peaceful 12″ vinyl record from Germany Klimek is Sebastian Meissner, who released this lovely music in the year 2005.  He has been fairly prolific in the electro-ambient world, releasing works for Mille Plateaux and Kompakt, two giants of the Teutonic scene which have probably suffered quite a lot since the near-demise of sales of

Music blog post #1 – Yard: Through The Woods (a mix) review

Seventy-five minutes of music by artists I have heard of mixed by someone who I haven’t heard of I like to occasionally browse the online music magazine http://www.igloomag.com, which features very underground and modern electronic and avant-garde music.  I know that this is a little pretentious, as if I am saying I am better than
