Quarantine Hike

Who among you has never strained his ear in the middle of summer to listen carefully to the song of crickets and grasshoppers? Who hasn't listened to the springtime dialogues of the birds? For the urban ear, most of Mother Nature's sounds are all too often just fantasies. To draw attention to the trivial, to make audible what the human eye cannot see thanks to the microphone, this eye eager to see everything, to tell a brief story of the dialogue between the world of the city ... read more

This one comes from the Earth... From its misty forests where dreams come to life, from its gently flowing streams, from its thousand sources that feed them, from its unusual paths that an unholy nature offers to travellers entering its bosom, from its venerable trees that have seen the centuries pass by, from the soil itself, from the roots that cling to it, from the humus, from the bedrock... with this anachronistic medieval village lost at the end of a vaporous marsh. But ... read more

Big year 2020 for Pink Siifu, who in April had already released a little discographic firecracker called "NEGRO"... An incendiary, lapidary, violent record; which mixed politically charged rap, punk rock, power electronics, industrial music, spoken word and rough noise collage. Not necessarily pleasant to listen to, but seminal and traumatic as possible... Here, accompanied by his colleague Fly Anakin, he delivers a much more accessible album, but no less interesting and researched ... read more

The blurred continuity.

The afflicted universe. A wandering guitarist, without money, sad like a stone. He goes from city to city, dressed in grey rags, playing the most desolate music in the whole world. Scattered and dilapidated guitar... a few notes that get lost in the languorous echoes of the dreary, busy streets. No one pays any attention to him. He declaims these few chords in the void, tears in his eyes, his lips cracked with a painful grin... His hands are frozen. The autumn wind is ... read more

Winter & Hate

"Burzum" is the beginning of the mystical (and ultimately tragic) journey of Varg Vikernes through a Black Metal that he was able to adapt to his own imaginary universe inhabited by Nordic deities, pagan legends and especially the magical universe of Tolkien rather than the great reaper or this good old Lucifer. On this debut album, we discover a tortured soul, an atmosphere so dark it is almost indescribable and an extremely basic musical formula but which goes ... read more

Once again, Recollection GRM makes possible these incredible discoveries of these forgotten works of electronic and electroacoustic music. I didn't know about the exceptional french composer Bernard Fort. "FRACTALS / Brain Fever" proves to be a sublime and arid example of sophisticated acousmatic music using variations from a single sound source, in the manner of Pierre Henry's precursor "Variations pour une porte et un soupir". Listening to these ... read more

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. For my next AOTY Icon Interview, I will be interviewing CLJesse. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Charlise. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about them. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

WhatTheFunk ? who is this frog-eater coming from another dimension who, armed only with his magic coat rack (nicknamed "Rico") fights alone against the terrifying pharaoh-vampires, the evil flesh-eating bath mats and their Nazi-Communist allies?! Who is hiding behind the glasses of this hero who defends orphans, pandas and heel fetishists?! Is he a millionaire, a pyromaniac, a fireman or an underpaid sweeper in a Yugoslavian laundry? So many questions and yet so few answers...
