Emicaeli – PoPs (2016)



  • No Wave 
  • Alternative rock 
  • Indie rock 
  • Experimental rock 
  • Avant-rock 
  • Math rock 
  • Avant-prog 
  • Hardcore 
  • Art rock 
  • Ambient rock 
  • Post-metal

Comment: in principle, it is a sort of punk rock. Something which does have similarities with it. In a refracted and deformed way, though. One can perceive the energy of it, madness of it, compulsion of it though all of that is magnified through powerful lenses of more artsy approaches. More profoundly, hardcore meets math rock meets progressive fragments meets post-metal meets whatever. It chimes like a perfect mirror or ironic comment to reflect the decay and shortsightedness of human kind. It is a final glimpse of a deranged mind. Indeed, it is your pop music, do not hesitate it. It is the group`s fifth issue. In a word, the result is a staggering mind fuck being issued on the Brazilian imprint Sinewave.

Feminine – Lorelei (2016)



  • Indie 
  • Alternative pop 
  • Indietronica 
  • Art pop 
  • Experimental pop 
  • Electronic

Comment: I am very pleased to be back at the discography of La bèl because the Italy-based imprint has always been inclined to surprise with something having never been within its discography. Feminine's Lorelei, the 10-notch issue, is a stunning listening experience due to crystal clear sonic plateaus on one side being saturated with electronic glitches and sublime noises and some oppressed droning on the other hand. A Ghost Too, the composition featuring Laura Loriga, includes the shrieks of seagulls. If you are going across an empty field being surrounded by cold wind and dust you are feeling the impact of the song more remarkably. It is somehow eerie and appealing at the same time. All the whole is epic and artsy at the same time. Make indie great again.

Elbio Barilari and Andy Cohn – Fluid Timescape (2016)



  • Kosmische Musik 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Experimentalism 
  • Synthwave 
  • Electronic music 
  • Live session 
  • Ambient 
  • Improvised music

Comment: the last tenure of mine with regard to Chicago-based pan y rosas discos imprint was dedicated to Dioxadol Borges' outing Siconauta Tourist Class. It was an issue of being heavily keyboard-driven and riveted with different kind of rhythms. The result was quite poppy while flying in the face of some incisive experimental elements. There is another synth-based issue though providing a little bit different tendencies in comparison to it. Andy Cohn is a man of having more than 3000 instruments worldwide in his mythical warehouse. It is his 37-minute session with Elbio Barilari. Elbio was playing a vintage JP-8000 Roland synthesiser, and Andy was playing a Steinway piano, a Roland Juno-D synth, and a Yamaha CP-70M electric piano. The outing is something peculiar and strange and ennobling at the same time and stylistically a drift between Kosmische Musik, wonky improvised music and analogue keyboard-driven synthetic landscapes. Yet the process is punctually controlled – at least it seems to be so. One can hear Tangerine Dream, and Sun Ra to appear sporadically in some snippets, though some more abstract flows may suggest early electronic music pioneers to be sitting on their rough machines. What about the time to be described in conjunction with the music? Does it exist as an entity or is it just an illusion or at least an effect of our perception? By listening to these 2260 seconds all these hypotheses are set up on air to last on. It needs no answers to be answered for. Tension coming out of it it is up there as an instrument. All in all, it is certainly an outstanding outing from the previous year.

Cherushii – Manic EP (2016)



  • Jazz house 
  • House 
  • Club dance 
  • Remix 
  • Electro-house 
  • Deep house 
  • Electronic music 
  • Tech-house

Comment: Chelsea Faith Dolan aka Cherushii was a producer and an electronic musician whose life abruptly ended in the fire of a warehouse in December, 2016. Manic EP is a fine legacy to her doings, more profoundly, consisting of a couple of tracks only though both tracks (Rudy's Party, Manic) involve different kind of mixes thereby resulting in five compositions ultimately. Especially good of these mixes it is the Magic Touch Instrumental version of Manic where smooth jazz vibes on the base of a blaring saxophone by Marcia Miget are represented over there. However, the best tracks are the original ones with truly mind-blowing gears and enchanting transmissions and stunning progressions. It is a top tier to pay tribute to Chelsea Faith's outstanding musicianship. RIP.
