Adam Bugaj - Telegraphed

"Telegraphed" by Adam Bugaj Telegraphed is the long-awaited follow-up to Adam Bugaj’s debut album from 2006 which, just as expected, has been destined to a life in obscurity. It was a disc overflowed by chopped underwater ceremonies and melodic fragments that were placed against a tapestry of tape-hiss and polyrhythmic psychedelia. Imagine a rousing but still downcast sound carousel reminiscent of Wilson/Parks as much as Dreamies and you’re in the right sketchy ballpark. This new disc treads over equally fragmentized terrain but at the same time it means a step sideward from the unconventional pop formula of the predecessor to something slightly more introvert. What we get is fragile song fragments interspersed with shimmering waves of warm electronic landscapes and bedroom experimentation. It all sounds like some nearly lost memory, or like being trapped inside a dream that’s all about subtle and beautiful disorientation. Simple melodies are embellished with a suggestive kind of brilliance and a great sense of melancholia, which seems to be grounded in the ordinary world, yet the sounds are otherworldly to say the least. Imagine watching home movies from another world and you’re getting close to what this one is all about.” – Mats Gustafsson. 16 tracks, 33 minutes.

Deep Water releases reviewed by Mr. Atavist

When I hear micro-label, I think of a result that is hand-crafted, something that values process just as much the end product, ingredients that can be as natural as they are modern and a concern for quality over quantity. That fits not only Deep Water Acres, but the sounds they are releasing. ...

Brother Ong - Deep Water Creation

Exotic and hypnotic sounds are looped, tweaked and set free to lure you into a space where you can simply go for the ride and stretch out, or you can get lost in the subtle and subversive details that reveal themselves with repeated visits. ...

Enumclaw - Painted Valley of the Mineral Monks

Enumclaw collapses the modern sounds, and tools, into a gentle cadence of throbs and emanations that are seemingly free of gravity, without meandering or slipping into electro-noodling. ...

Psychic Frost

Cinematic in scope and cosmic in size without the bombast, Psychic Frost manage to steer their sonic exodus into something personal without cutting short the inner and outer voyages. ...
