Starboxxx: E02: Addendum 5″ Lathe

Starboxxx – E02: Addendum 5″ Lathe
Empty Space Collective
This is an awesome little serving of cut-up sound oriented trip hop insanity from mysterious Swedish short player Starboxxx. Primarily focusing on the more musique concrete aspects of sample-based composition, these two modest tracks pack in quite a bit of sustenance. Side one fondues itself in a collection of hard fucking drums and knobby noodlings and side two goes skittish and then spooky warping time and space.

Ochu ‎– Tvärsnitt LP
Verlautbarung Label
Ochu is an experimental music group from Sweden that focuses on creating improvised instrumentation not unlike Musique Concrète. Some of it involves samples and loops while other portions revolve around rhythmic clanging and metallic scraping underneath various drones.
Obviously, this type of stuff isn’t for everybody and it could come across as a music conservatory mid-term for some. For me, it does have a concept art mystique about it, as it appeals to my visual senses and appreciation for natural elements used musically. “Der …
