"Dragon's Eye Fourth Anniversary" (feature)
Over the past 4 years, Dragon's Eye has established itself as a resource for the enquiring listener seeking experimental ambient and sound art. Its 4th anniversary is marked by Flowers, compiling label veterans and newcomers, and which, with five other still fresh releases, prompts a timely mini profile.

"ini.itu : Featuring Anaphoria and Francisco López" (feature)
After two years and a handful of beautifully crafted limited edition vinyl releases in their roster, ini.itu have redesigned the topography of the small independent label rationale. This being, that conceptual sound works can be released on vinyl, and that eclecticism and diversity of output enhance the listening experiences of those who might be more familiar with one particular genre over another.

"" (review)
Loren Dent's recent Infraction release, Anthropology Vol. 1, is a long, drawn out suite of sustained tones and shifting harmonies, a bright and shimmering drift accumulating across an extensive cloudscape. It's very slow moving music, nothing with a clear definition until more than half way through the album, where thin wisps of sound delicately flitter in the spaces around Loss of Eternal Life.

"Dining Needle's Nocturnal Reflections" (review)

"Gears Shifting" (review)
2009 saw the Gears of Sand label quietly compute a half-century of releases over a half decade, shifting through all points north and south of ambient and electronic atmospherica. Ben Fleury-Steiner, enquiring-minded curator, has a knack for snaring interesting newcomers as well as coaxing established acts to his GoS roster. These tendencies are well represented here by recent releases from Chubby Wolf and Drape.

"Magnetic Injuries - TL0741" (review)
The second full length from Pat Gillis’s Washington, DC based TL071 called Magnetic Injuries is a smoldering slab of radiation burnt body parts. As more electronic noise artist jump the fence and concern themselves with propulsive hypnogogic psychedelia, Gillis probes the dark side of electronic anima.

"Seasick Blackout - Matt Weston" (review)
Matt Weston’s Seasick Blackout is his fourth solo EP on his own 7272Music imprint, and I must admit I have been enjoying Mr. Weston’s prolific output of plaintive yet agitated sounds.
