track for today… sunil sharpe 'cadya'

This is a sampler for the forthcoming Sunil Sharpe release on Trensmat, Cadya, which is available to pre-order here. Classic old-school-ish relentless psychedelic techno. Sounding good.

track for today… cj boyd 'peradora'

Here's a bit of classic-style drone-centred post-rock, dropping the windswept minor key melodies of Godspeed You Black Emperor into a rather abstract, reverb-heavy backdrop a la Rothko. 'Peradora' is from the new CJ Boyd album Precariat, released recently on Joyful Noise Recordings. Apparently, all sounds are created with Boyd's voice, an upright bass, and a bass guitar.

track for today… large unit 'roundabout nothing'

Some outstanding, playful free jazz/improv skronk and double-drumkit sublimity from Large Unit. It's a band led by Paal Nilssen-Love, who is involved in about a billion other outfits and projects including The Thing, Scorch Trio and work with Mats Gustafsson and Lasse Marhaug. Nilssen-Love's website is here.

track for today… energy gown 'overflow for being grown'

After a couple of smaller-scale (and physically smaller) releases - two 7"s, one lathe-cut - Energy Gown have dropped their full-length Evening Molasses and it's totally killer. Think late 1960s psychedelically-altered freakouts, think Red Crayola, think The Calico Wall's 'Flight Reaction', and transpose those thoughts into a 21st century set of outsider drug music. Hear and buy the whole album here.
