Inspired by Friedrich Durrenmatt's short 'novel' The Winter War in Tibet, we have some strange and ambient sounds out of Minsk.

Re: Obscure music recommendation (Dark ambient, Noise, Experimental, etc) )

Not sure how I missed this thread.

Here's some songs from one of my favorite bands, Cindytalk. Well, technically, it's a solo project now, but they started out as a kind of ghostly experimental Goth band in the 80s. Cindytalk seems pretty obscure, even by underground music standards. I'm genuinely somewhat surprised by that.

The first two tracks here are from the most recent Cindytalk album, touchedRAWKISSEDsour. I think it might be my favorite of the albums Gordon Sharp made when Cindytalk became a solo project (gives me nice hypnagogic Lynchian vibes when I listen to it late at night). Snowkiss is mid-period (cool fan video), and The Ghost Never Smiles is early period (even the early stuff holds up better than many of their contemporaries, IMO).

Labradford's A Stable Reference might be the album I've listened to more than any other.


I first learned of the word/concept 'Sehnsucht' from a post at Quentin S. Crisp's defunct blog. I think Sehnsucht is what I experience when I listen to this album, and what keeps drawing me back to it.

Re: Obscure music recommendation (Dark ambient, Noise, Experimental, etc) )

Joseph Hammer is an interesting musician who stitches together almost unclassifiable music. His most recent album, Roadless Travel, is particularly recommended.

It's another good one to listen to in the hypnagogic zone. I fell asleep while listening to it in the wee hours of the morning once, and it was maybe the only time something I was listening to while asleep bled clearly over into my dreams.

Shortly after falling asleep, I dreamed I was in my bedroom, sitting on a couch (my room doesn't have a couch) in the moonlight by the window, listening to the track Soda Lake on headphones. I remember feeling like the music was drawing me into a trance, almost like I was under a spell, and I became paralyzed and started feeling very heavy, sinking into the couch. A voice in the music kept repeating the words "sweat, body heat," and I started sweating profusely. After awhile something seemed wrong, like the music was stuck in a loop that seemed like it might go on forever. Something wrong with the mp3 player? I managed to break out of the trance, and pulled off the earphones, but the music was still playing in my head.

Then I was pacing around, with the music and those words still on a loop, and I started becoming increasingly agitated. I tried to press stop on the player, took out the batteries (my mp3 player doesn't use those kinds of batteries, of course), then dismantled it and threw the pieces to the ground and stomped on them. But the music kept playing as loud as ever (some time after I had this dream I watched Black Mirror's Christmas special, and the scene right at the end with the radio reminded me of it.)

Around that time I woke up, and the song ended. I rewound it to see how close the actual music was to what I heard in my dream. It was pretty much identical. "Sweat, body heat..."

Here's a clip from the beginning of Soda Lake to give you an idea of what it's like (the full track is around 20 minutes long):

Anyway, that's probably enough for tonight. Time for me to go to bed. ;)

A trailer for a possibly interesting compilation that comes out this month:

Growing up, I always wanted to visit the skeletal buildings of the leprosarium but I never got the chance.

Werner Herzog visited Spinalonga in 1968 and did a B&W short, centering on the last inhabitant - not a leper - that was forcefully removed, after having lived alone for years. He never said anything about his life there. He was an extraordinary musician, a great lyre-player.

Watch and listen carefully, he is the one with the Charles Bronson-style mustache. I believe this is a reasonably obscure music recommendation.

- From Umberto's collaborative project Law Unit (formerly The Hook & Pull Gang) comes a new song complete with a video made up of clips from Shinya Tsukamoto films.
