My review of "Piano Textures 3" CD by Bruno Sanfilippo

The third installment of "Piano Textures" has became a reality during September 2012. I won't say anything new when describing Bruno Sanfilippo, in Argentina born, but residing in Barcelona, Spain, as one of the leading figures of the ambient movement in Europe. Released not only as a solo digipak CD, but also as one…

My review of "Sense" CDr by Radiant Mind

Radiant Mind is a brand new name on the growing roster of sympathetic and supportive US label Periphery, run by highly acclaimed Darren Bergstein and released during July 2012.

My review of "Apeiron" CDr by Proton Kinoun

The sole protagonist behind Proton Kinoun project is Danish psychedelic trance producer Kasper Weensgaard, who is, I suppose, better known under his alias Psylent Buddhi. My knowledges about goa/psy trance movement are non-existing, so most likely "Apeiron" would pass my target, but fortunately I was pointed to…

My review of "Nocturnal Winter" CDr by Stormloop

I was immediately hooked since the very first moments when Kevin Spence aka Stormloop has presented his newest album on his Bandcamp site, packaged in handmade CD wallet and limited to 30 pieces only. And when the album arrived, the reality was even more impressive, because "Nocturnal Winter" CDr looks very…

My First French Review

I think it's a good sign when a 3 year old self released album is still being discovered and talked about.  Recently the 'Have Faith In Sound' blog wrote a review of my debut from way back in 2009.

But it's in French...

Which even though I'm Canadian, and Canada's a bilingual…

My review of "World That Wasn't" CD by Raygun Ballet

My ventures into IDM/downtempo infused electronica are quite limited, but the fact John-Mark Austin is the creator of new project recording under Raygun Ballet moniker immediately raised my eyebrows. Because except newly born Raygun Ballet, he is also the sole protagonist of Immersion Theory and with its "The…

Review: Jack Hertz - Speleo

I’ve wanted to review an album by the prolific Jack Hertz for a while, and the timing of his latest album, “Speleo” is just right. Jack runs the Sound for Good netlabel, where profits from sales of downloads and CDs go to charity. Eagle-eyed readers may recall me talking about Sound for Good on my earlier review of William Spivey and Aos Crowley’s “Absence of Matter“. It’s notable that, in just four months, already the label has reached its sixth release.

The album’s notes state that…

Review: Roberto Massoni - Diter:0

Roberto Massoni‘s “Diter:0″ is the first album to be released on the Docil netlabel, which is based in Argentina. According to the Internet Archive, the label may previously have been named Data. The label also has a SoundCloud page with some additional tracks. The description on this release’s webpage (as translated by Google) describes the music as being “created from the kindness and acceptance of happiness”.

At just over half an hour long, the album moves from one slow, perfect…
