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.

Night Stories out Jan 15

Joel Taylor’s Night Stories, a full-length album teeming with moving melodies, subtle textures and xenharmonic wonder comes out on Spectropol January 15.

Night Stories is a suite of nine pieces that concerns itself with our love for, and our fear of, Nature, our closeness to each other and to other animals, and the personal experience of loss, love, and community.

The form of the suite is programmatic and informed by Taylor’s experience with Javanese Gamelan, in particular with the beautiful art form Wayang Kulit, or shadow puppet theater.

A plot synopsis, photographs, videos and bonus tracks will accompany the download.
