Drone/ambient favourite Tim Hecker is releasing a new record called Dropped Pianos, a set of “sketch pieces” recorded in 2010 that led to this year’s brilliant Ravedeath, 1972.

Dropped Pianos will be released on October 10 on Kranky and this is a preview clip.


pumped for this album.

Not familiar with Simon Scott until this but sounds great, looking forward to his new record Bunny next month.

Reblogged from squanto.

2010 track from Sean McCann.

New album from the ever prolific avant-folk Maine outfit, Big Blood. Five extended jams, with the standout being the final track, ‘Water’, which is quite lovely.

Listen below and download the album over at the Free Music Archive. You can order a vinyl edition of the record from Phase Mag.

Lil B,
I Forgive You

Straight off the back of his relatively acclaimed I’m Gay (I’m Happy), Lil B has a new mixtape titled I Forgive You. Nothing new here, just more oddball “based” ramblings, but this closing track, ‘Im 2 Real’, stands out with a cool beat.

You can download the mixtape over at DatPiff.

Modeselektor “Monkeytown” (MONKEYTOWN015) OUT BETWEEN SEP27-OCT04 by Modeselektor

Really looking forward to this, sounds like it will be their best yet.

New track from Wolves in the Throne Room, definitely my favourite contemporary metal band, from their forthcoming LP Celestial Lineage.

'Woodland Cathedral' represents a departure from the aggression of their last record, Black Cascade, and a return to the more atmospheric sound of their earlier work, in particular their breakthrough Two Hunters.

The track also marks a return for Jessika Kenney on vocals, who previously guested on Two Hunters and seems to be developing into the go-to choral-vocalist for avant-metal bands. She led the choir on Monoliths and Dimensions by Sunn O))) and Stephen O’Malley has just issued one of her records on his Editions Mego sub-label.

But Kenney is definitely a very talented vocalist and arranger, so I’m looking forward to hearing how this sits within the context of the record.
