A cerebral journey lasting 5 minutes, traveling through various audio worlds. This are avant-garde, mama. Why me post it? Cos me likes it. Same reason I post me power pops and such. But this are not pop. This are lovely strange audio adventures. Very peaceful, and unusual. ‘Lectronica? Ambient? Sure, but call it what you like, this is my pick for July 1. Wishing you all a fine and uncommon day. :papercutz “A Secret Search” (mp3)

Here’s a lovely instrumental track from Oakland, CA’s BROOKHAVEN, in their own ambient drone guitar style. It’s as if Joy Division left their angst at home and spent a nice afternoon with Brian Eno and some mild psychedelics. Exceedingly warm and inviting, like a sort of luminescent cocoon. You go in one side as an uncertain caterpillar, to emerge confident and beautiful 6:38 later as a well rested butterfly. Thank you, BROOKHAVEN.

Ah, the Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy, it had to eventually come to this. Bassoons loom whilst chimes jingle and drums bump in Berlin Symphony Orchestra’s adventurous take on the Tchaikovsky classic. Fraught with mystery and intrigue, this gem from the “Christmas Remixed 2” comp capers with a mischievous glee that honors the composition, even as it treads into new forests of sound and wonder.

Blag Dahlia is best known as front man for The Dwarves. Anyone who knows his work and personality would understand this is not a man to be trifled with. But trifle they did, and, well, here is the result of someone asking to license the Dwarves’ recorded music without compensation.
