Mort Garson, "Mother Earth's Plantasia"

E-mail Print PDF has become a well-known record despite a limited initial 1976 release to anyone buying a houseplant from the Mother Earth store in Los Angeles. This was music for plant owners to create an environment of optimal growth - simple haunting melodies composed on a moog.

Spiral Wave Nomads

E-mail Print PDF

cover image Spiral Wave Nomads is the newly formed duo of multi-instrumentalist Eric Hardiman (Rambutan, Century Plants, Burnt Hills) and drummer Michael Kiefer (More Klementines).  As a new duo, their first record is surprisingly a fully formed excursion:  an excellent balance of structure and improvisation, and a sound that never stands still, but also demonstrates consistency and focus from song to song.  The final product is a complex, yet entirely enjoyable suite of enveloping psychedelia that engages without bludgeoning.

cover image While a series of archival live releases have appeared recently, the self-titled BLOODYMINDED is the first new studio material from the legendary Chicago noise/power electronics project since 2013’s Within the Walls.  It also marks the first time that all six permanent members of the international band:  Xavier Laradji, Will Lindsay, James Moy, Isidro Reyes, Pieter Schoolwerth, and de facto band leader Mark Solotroff have recorded together at the same location.  This was heralded by a live performance just before the few crew entered the studio (released as The Struggle of Togetherness, but live BLOODYMINDED is a very different beast.   On stage they are a writhing mass of black leather, cheap plastic synths, and far more microphones than necessary.  The result is the deconstruction of rock show clichés complete with between song banter and dedications, some of which are longer in duration than the song itself, which may be just a five second blast of synth.  In the studio, however, the thematic depth and obsessive attention to sonic detail is much more obvious, resulting in the band's best work to date.
