1 Old Girl, Old Boy 37:39

Highly limited copies of this cassette release from Austria's Rdeca Raketa. The pairing of Maja Osojnik and Matija Schellander makes an enigmatic blend of delicately abstract digital sound using improvised compositional techniques and a free, exploratory attitude. Through these methods and an array of instruments including sub-bass recorder and E-Bass they deftly manoeuvre themselves through unpredictable and alien soundscapes comparable to Phillip Jeck, or at times, Keith Fullerton Whitman's more intuitive arrangements. 'Old Girl, Old Boy' plays through as one track from start to finish (albeit with a pause to turn the tape), meshing ethereal drones with fragments of avant-classical strings, indecipherable digital textures and blustery white noises. Much of the intimacy and intrigue of their sound comes from the organic sequencing of their sound, summoning vague but detailed sonic imagery from the barest of elements and crafting it into something more interesting with a naturally instinctive finesse. There's shades of Roedelius at his most spectral, or even Wolf Eyes when the pair go more abrasive.

Ras returns from planet X with a six track EP of abstract dub-hop head pressure. With 'El Alyien Part 1' it soon becomes obvious that we've caught Ras at his most esoteric. The first four tracks are a bong-eyed blend of rich field recordings and crackly samples knitted togther with a bed of psychoactively charged subbass. There's almost no telling where each track starts and stops if you weren't looking at the screen, lending an intuitive and expressionist collage feel to the set. GB's remix brings up the rear with a spherical rerub of the second track, sounding a little like the Delia Derbyshire just smoked a blunt with Dilla. Recommended!

Misadventure of a Meaty Machine is Cherly Kacherly's third release following "Drop a 4 Note Soundtrack" and the self titled debut EP.
like its predecessors it was also recorded at home, using a reluctant microphone and a text to speech software that was put in charge of the vocal parts.
Surprisingly, the album is also available in a silkscreen printed board game deluxe edition, immune to future Internet catastrophes and could technically survive a nuclear holocaust if kept in the right conditions.
