Nick Nightingale – Ambient Guitar Works (2017)



  • Ambient 
  • Ambient rock 
  • Electronic music
  • Alternative

Comment: as the title suggests the 8-track album is about ambient music and guitars. But not only though. Nick Nightingale, an American musician who explores electronics and synths as well. Indeed, more or less extended and lively or restrainedly running atmospheric landscapes are balanced with pure electronic uinversums, vibrant drones somewhere nearby the zero and bold bass synth-based templates here and there. But usually one chord is followed by another in a slow tempo. That`s a very OK issue. His music can be compared with another US-based mastermind Drew Miller aka Brother Saturn.

Les Louise Mitchels/Sex Drugs & Rebetiko – Split (2009)



  • Art punk 
  • World music 
  • Improvised music 
  • Folk punk 
  • Crossover 
  • Surf rock 
  • Drone folk 
  • Avant-folk

Comment: Les Louise Mitchels` 6-notch part is an intense blend of artsy punk, dadaist attitude and Balkan/gypsy brass folk punk. But also surf music allusions are up there to provide a more puzzled soundscape. The France-based artist has managed to set a fast pace through the noodling on hirsute guitars, woodwinds, and drums where one can partake in repetitive patterns, improvised progressions and something else between the approaches.


Sex Drugs & Rebetiko`s 3-track is a different story because it is more subdued and restrained due to slowly progressing drones in the vein of folk music. Furthermore, it seems to  me that some phrases are sung in Greek and beside that distinct characteristic there are up obvious patterns from Greek ethnic music. The interesting split is a part of the Les Diks Qui Sautent (ldqs 068).

Rastr – Tales Of the Druid (2017)



  • Industrial rock 
  • Breakbeat 
  • Alternative rock 
  • Electronic 
  • Alternative dance

Comment: this bunch of 6 instrumental tracks is an instance of industrial rock. More profoundly, it does mean heavily clanging drums and slamming programmed beats which are up there to show direction and provide the back-up to incisive and harsh guitar riff-based attitude. Due to a typical industrial example it is very straightforward and emotion oppressive, it is more about showing off its muscles and power. Due to an atypical industrial rock release it involves lots of torrents of broken beat massacres. Just a couple of sequences are aligned with one another to prevent possible greyish zones and deviations in between. It`s now your turn to decide is it either positive or negative value to go out from the set. The issue is a part of the discography of MNMN Records.
