Beyond Boundaries is a 10-track playlist aiming to feature 10 “out-of-the-box”, outstanding gems! Not exactly unclassified, but certainly unique and uncommon.
“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
(harsh noise wall, noise)
Quick pitch: Tiefling is the solo project of Boston based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer, Jack Salvucci, and ‘Tiefbow’ is a 3-minute, harsh noise wall exploration for fans of Merzbow and early-era Prurient… Wild!
Boy is Princess
(hyperpop, glitch, experimental)
Quick pitch: Adore the way Boy is Princess’ hyperpop gem gets deconstructed after the 2nd minute mark to get back after a while with its moody, noir vibes…. Unpredictable & uncompromising!
Quick pitch: Tavish Crowe’s moniker is tework, and ‘Buoyant Order’ is a ravishing, idm/electronic ambient treasure with stunning sound, out via INTRASET label…
(experimental electronic, idm)
Quick pitch: Experimental electronic made in Japan, and in particular by Kyoto-based dagshenma. Sounds like Autechre on LSD!
We Used to Cut the Grass
(jazz fusion, progressive rock)
Quick pitch: Zappa-inspired ensemble We Used to Cut the Grass, which features members of Thank You Scientist and Cory Wong, couldn’t let us down with their 7-minute jazz fusion, progressive rock magnum opus whose influences range from Frank Zappa to Sun Ra and from John Zorn to Mike Patton’s more twisted projects. Magnifying!
Tired Tape Machine
(downtempo, glitch hop, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Stockholm-based musician and producer Petter Lindhagen, aka Tired Tape Machine’s latest single ‘Stitch’, is a fine taster from his forthcoming LP ‘Thing’; A seductive blend of downtempo, glitch hop mixed with a healthy dose of experimentation!
(indie electronic, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Remaining in Sweden, to meet with Cecilia Kyllinge and her Diamanda Galas-esque, stunning indie electronic single with a powerhouse vocal performance and intriguing electronic soundscapes!
(acoustic, acid folk, post rock)
Quick pitch: Jiminil’s ‘The Killing of the Sacred Buzzard’ is an one of a king instrumental, acid folk treat with post & psychedelic rock flavour, built around a stunning ‘fingerstyle’ acoustic guitar. Brought in mind some great 70s acid folk releases! A “Beyond Boundaries” definitive anthem….
(experimental electronic, hyperpop, rave)
Quick pitch: The lead single off of TOMMY PIXELS’ EP, ‘TOMMY+2’ is an off-the-walls rave & shameless hyperpop hybrid to dance to… Like a mutant!
(math rock, post punk, noise rock, industrial)
Quick pitch: New York’s Cinemartyr’s ‘No Legacy’ is a mind-blowing, genre-bending, sonic extravaganza, combining rebellious math rock, noise rock outbursts, industrial elements and post punk ethos, like The Mars Volta hanging out with Fugazi and later joined by Skinny Puppy… Confused?
