Extinction Frequency cover

Carya Amara’s retrospective of music from the 1990s, Extinction Frequency, is now a free download via Bandcamp. It is still also available on CD.

Featuring material recorded between 1992 and 1996, Extinction Frequency displays a progression from the more rhythmic material on the companion CD of earlier experiments, Tales of the Unattractive.

“maintains a ruthless and driving energy – as well as a sparkling clarity of sound” – Stone Gnome

“It has an easy, pop-culture humour with a tendency to taking a left-turn into the darker reaches” – The Violet Apple

cover artWe have a new release for you. The exceptional debut album by Norah Lorway is a unique blend of ambience and glitch. Norah says:-

“Most of the sounds you will hear on this album were synthesised using the music programming language SuperCollider, with some custom-made performance interfaces created in Max/MSP.

The music was informed by many genres, including ambient, drone, algorithmic and glitch but it is not constrained to just these. The music is a hybrid of many traditions and I hope it will speak for itself”.

Earthrid-011-cover-250.jpgWe are delighted to announce the release of One Million Corners, the debut by Spill Twins. A lot of the tracks were written with an audience of abandoned robots in mind. It gets stranger from there… Imagine electronic music which is by turns wistful and chirpy… or better still, just download the album now and give it a try!

One Million Corners is available as a free download and as a cheap, but lovingly packaged, CD.

Elliot Smith, the man behind Spill Twins, works as a software developer, specialising in open source applications. His one-man music project reflects this perspective and, although software is used to produce the music, Elliot tries to spend zero money on software and sounds, since he finds that the constraints enforced by a limited set of software helps him to focus on the music.

One Million Corners presents some of the best tracks recorded over the first decade and a half of the project. Elliot says “I try to make moving music. I start tracks from rhythms, and sometimes with a scenario in mind: very often it involves sad robots on forgotten space stations. That’s who I imagine is listening!”.
