During the past week, Connexion Bizarre was updated with a few music reviews, our weekly podcast, an interview with Justin Headrick of the label else.product and the release of a new EP by American noise artist Conure.
"Bookend: Left" with music selection by M. (tracklisting | MP3)
Conure "Hidden Blinds"
Conure CDs are usually created as one whole unit before being divided into a few, long tracks. Running a total of 20 minutes, “Hidden Blinds” is an anomaly in that it consists of seven separate tracks recorded at various times from May, 2009 to November, 2010.
else.product: an interview with Justin Headrick
else.product exists for strange, unusual and dark music that doesn't adhere to any musical boundaries. Music that is compelling and might otherwise be lost.
Bella Lune / Hyperbubble / The Sexbots
Three releases with niche appeal, from goth-pop to bubbly synthpop and punky lo-fi experimentalism.
Sky Burial "Kiehthan"
Solitary evenings spent among the dunes and pine forests of the Outer Lands provide the context for this release, and sonic experimentation is the method. Simply put, and to avoid wrangling over problematical categorizations, "Kiehtan" is archetypal stargazing ambient, a soundtrack for the spinning, star-flecked abyss.
And that's about it for this week's update. More to come next week...
All the best,
