Yasuragi Land, the new album by Foodman

Probably contemporary Japanese music is not what we’re listening to every day, but Yasuragi Land by Foodman is the perfect start to get inspired by and fall in love with the contemporary music of Land of the Rising Sun. This album has everything we love Japan for – minimalism, Japanese street food market, neon signs, silent beauty of landscapes and a fabulous combination of classical and modern culture, which is not found in any other country in the world

Duende, the new album by Spyros Polychronopoulos out now via Room4

Athen’s based composer and researcher Spyros Polychronopoulos has been responsible for a series of powerful sound explorations over the past two decades. His LEM edition – a custom made hardware device which performs a never ending sound piece – was a landmark in iterative composition. With Duende though Polychronopoulos turns his ear to composition and the interrogation of electroacoustic and instrumental sound sources. Duende, which draws its title from Federico García Lorca’s lecture of the same name, expands Polychronopoulos’s sonic language merging intense dynamism with concrete structures and deeply textured tonal passages. It is a journey of unwavering experimentation and expansive detail.

Expansive Nothingness by OdNu out now via Audiobulb

OdNu is the musical alias of Michel Mazza. Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina and currently residing in Hudson, NY. Michel’s compositions are a constant experiment and interplay of instruments, different techniques, electronics and his moods and feelings. He often works with repetitive tiny melodies creating a dialogue between them amid textures of grainy decomposed sounds often from his main instrument the guitar but also including synths, (usually triggered using the midi guitar), field recordings and other acoustic instruments, the result is melodic, cinematic and otherworldly.
