Klaus Schulze – Timewind

A friend of mine does a lot of work restoring old houses. He often clears them of stuff that's been left behind. Sometimes there's some vinyl left over. If it is not claimed, he gets lucky. One of the albums he got, he passed onto me. That album is Klaus Schulze - Timewind. My word,... Continue Reading →

Halftribe – Backwater Revisited

I can always rely on Ryan Bisset (aka Halftribe) to deliver an album that totally speaks to me. Also, a label (Dronarivm) that includes Brock Van Wey (bvdub), is likely to present a joy.

The release of Verve has not been a straightforward story. 5 years or so ago, his computer and... Continue Reading →

Helios – Veriditas

I was getting a little concerned. Each of the last 4 years have produced an album that I’ve been obsessed with, played almost daily, often daily. Mogwai, AWVFTS, Max Richter, and last year Ben Lukas Boysen and Sebastian Plano with Everything. August was nearly over and there had been albums i'd liked, liked a lot,... Continue Reading →
