Rubio out 4/19 + news & reviews

Spectropol is excited about the release of Marcus Rubio’s “I don’t think I see a difference” next Saturday (April 19). It’s a compelling album of banjo/voice-centered deconstructed pop songs that’s as pleasing as it is challenging.

Here’s a tiny teaser:

‘desolation’ (Bennett/Galloway) is available for download

‘desolation’ is an album of sonic hauntings, a collection of experimental ambient explorations by two longtime collaborators. This release continues Spectropol’s side project of unearthing older gems from the back catalogs of interesting artists, as these tracks were recorded in 1999. Bennett and Galloway have since collaborated many times, recently in the west coast based psychedelic-electroacoustic band Respectable Citizen. ‘desolation’ has aged wonderfully, with composer Bennett putting his considerable synthesis & keyboarding expertise to use against Galloway’s trademark experimental guitar work. It’s full of force and beauty and beckons new listeners in 2014.

Streaming and name-your-price download available at the bandcamp site:

new Ilia Belorukov album is available!

This collection of acousmatic pieces from Saint-Petersburg’s Ilia Belorukov melds electroacoustic, ambient-chill, and free improvisation into a unified whole. Granular soundscapes fuse with hypnotic pads, providing shifting moods and often a calm repose. Processed saxophone enters the picture, weaving insistent loops and beautiful lines through forests of gentle noise.

Check out the album on the bandcamp site where you can stream & download I Did What Was Possible to Quiet Us.

new album from LIL is available

Polish artist Marcin Tomczak has been producing music and sound art for well over 15 years. His early work involved audio collage, as well as programming early drum machines and the Commodore computer. His BRUIT project (late 1990s) mixed spoken word poetry with sound collages. He then began mixing and composing with various sound sources under the alias LIL. The hypnotic, ambient music on THE SPACE BETWEEN was completed in 2013 and combines field recordings with subtle electronic textures and processed voices. LIL frequently collaborates with other artists and has an upcoming solo release on Tom Flesh Records/Sirona Records in the first quarter of 2014.

Stream, download (name your price), or purchase the CDR from the bandcamp link.

“Il y a seulement des apparitions” is available

Another multi-layered journey from Montréal’s Vincent Bergeron, “Il y a seulement des apparitions” continues his exploration of cutup mixing techniques and his own idiosyncratic singing. The result is a rich “spasmacousmatic” experience, a surreal engagement with Bergeron’s musical collaborators and the themes he grapples with.

Download ($7) is available at the Spectropol Bandcamp site.
