Fallen Metropolis – En våd by falder i sumpen

Kritik March 14 2017 fallen

Anmeldelse af Fallen Metropolis “Revolutionary Faction” (Interzone Tapes, 2017) – af Mads Kjeldgaard.

Der er sgu noget Blade Runner over det her nye bånd fra fynske Interzone Tapes (som Passive/Aggresive tidligere har skrevet om her). Der er store, støjende ambient-repetitioner i statisk forfald. Og der er byens konkrete lyde, tvunget ud i stereobilledets yderligheder. Læs resten

Percy Records – Vogteren på Heimdalsgade

Feature March 7 2017 IMG_20170215_201743_592

Af Sandra S. Borch

Lige i starten af Heimdalsgade bag den Røde Plads i Nordvest har Troels Hastrup åbnet Percy Records, en ny pladebiks dedikeret til det fulde spektrum fra lydkunst til klubkultur. Det var navnet på Troels’ familiehund, titlen på et godt nummer og betyder “personal favorite” på god ‘Glasgow-tale’. Så der var altså alle gode grunde til at døbe biksen Percy. Læs resten

Dedekind Cut ‘$uccessor’ – Liberating ambient music from predictability and whiteness

Kritik January 21 2017 ded004

Dedekind Cut “$uccessor” (NON Worldwide/Hospital Productions, 2016) – Review by Ivna Franić

Having broken off with the Lee Bannon and ¬ b monikers – possibly for good – Dedekind Cut’s Fred Warmsley kicked off 2016 with an interesting although not entirely satifying collaboration with Rabit, followed by the merely solid single “Last”. It wasn’t until this past spring’s “American Zen” EP that the direction in which Warmsley was heading began to take shape. A gorgeous ambient release that could almost pass for a full-length album, “American Zen” signalled not only the sounds that Dedekind Cut would go on further exploring, but also a fresh approach to the topics he had already shown interest in, mostly through mixes and one-off tracks.

As if to make sure he provided us with the right context for his debut LP, in the days before its release Warmsley posted a marathon “Ambient Essentials” playlist which, among other things, confirmed Enya’s newly legitimate influence and served as a welcome reminder of the more and less contemporary ambient touchstones.

Lars Lundehave Hansen – Vrangen ud på ambientskabelonen

Kritik October 19 2016 LLH

På sit første album under eget navn vender Lars Lundehave Hansen (bl.a. Wäldchengarten) mange ting på hovedet. Selv betegner han musikken som ambient, men der er uvant megen dynamik i de punk-korte numre.
