ambient video


HE MAY have entered his sixth decade on this particular rock spinning in space – and don’t even get me started on the passage of time, I mean how can this have happened? – but the good Doctor, Alex Paterson, ambient dub techno genius behind The Orb, is ready to roll with a whole clutch …

BRETON composer Yann Tiersen has shared the mesmerising new video for “Poull Boujer”, the latest track he’s divulged from his August album for Mute, Kerber – you can watch that below; and announced details of a massive worldwide tour, beginning later this year in North America and coming to Europe in 2022. The dates include …

WITH what looks to be another absolutely essential, cartographically-inclined Maps EP out at midsummer, Max Cooper has today dropped a typically jaw-dropping short film – to call it a video is somehow to demean the scale and art of the piece, I feel – for one of that EP’s most outstanding tracks, “Leaving The Place” …

IF YOU consider yourself a fan of great British guitar music and you haven’t investigated the canon of East London-Essex borderlands’ The Wolfhounds, then jeez, do you ever need to put that right – immediatement. Coming out of the C86 wave of bands and featuring on that legendary/infamous tape (please delete according to personal taste) …

It’s gonna be an excellent journey, that album, …

AS YOU can pretty much deduce from the photo, Patrick Belaga isn’t your common or garden cellist. Classically trained, natch, he loves to bust out of convention – whether that’s collaborating with performance artists such as Wu Tsang, or scoring Lady Gaga’s Netflix documentary. Life – and music, and art – are for living. His …

BEN SERETAN, the New York composer whose song-based and folksy album from last year, Youth Pastoral, made massive waves Stateside – earning itself a spot in Pitchfork’s 35 Best Rock Albums of the Year list – and whose 2018 My Life’s Work was 24 hours long, recorded over three consecutive nights from sunset to sunrise, is …

DRAGON WELDING; a great name, redolent of fire and the elements, of flicker and sulphur, things made and remade in heat. A great name.
