Just a perfect album. Every track is perfectly "orchestrated", every sample finds its place and each slice of rhythm is in harmony with the whole. Thus one of my recently discovered favourite albums. Yes, I could listen to it all day long, while usually I can't stand people doing that kind of blasphemy.

I just love this music. That probably explains why there was so little time between the two releases from KOGNITIF.

I can't wait to hear more, I'll keep you up to date.

Kaminanda - Gateways of Consciousness

I want to share an immediate discovery with you. While listening to a random psybient playlist on Youtube I stumbled by chance on Kaminanda. It was such an intense music that I thought "if only it was free !" and it just happens to be so !

So here's the plan : let's turn down the volume of everything else, download this completely free album on Ektoplazm and then play it any way we like, but on a good sound system. Then let's listen. Of course I could say the same for everything I share here but I know it is quite an act of faith to turn down one's own music to listen to something else, something yet to be known. I trust your musical passion for that.

Here's the link to hear this wonderful piece.

And here's a preview if you're not convinced :

Pretty Lights - Filling Up The City Skies

Pretty Light's vibrating funky electronic music is always a good choice, whatever the situation, be it a party, a birthday, a burial or a farewell drink. Rhythms are intelligent, well crafted, the instrumentals are perfectly executed and above all, it is completely free via Pretty Light's website, putting it out of the commercial music sphere

Here's the plan : there are two CD's worth more than twenty tracks of pure delight, so it would be great to donate, right ? For that you need a Paypal account. You don't have one and you don't want to ? Well I understand, but you can still download the albums, share them a lot, and "show some love" (as some would say it) on his Facebook Page or in the comments on his website, it's always great for the artist to get some feedback on his work.

Here are the secret keys to these little treasures :
- Pretty Lights' Website
- Download the first CD
- Download the second CD
- Pretty Lights' Facebook Page

Beaumont Livingston - Heavens & Fantasies

Seems like the italians like stoner rock and metal, it is very clear now. I recently posted an article about Acid Cosmonaut Records, an italian label specialised in stoner and heavy-psych music ; here is Beaumont Livingston, an italian band not produced by ACR but creating quality heavy psych, very heavy in fact. The walls vibrate, the headphones too. It does what it's meant to do.

Note that this album has been released in 2012, and it's still free, so there is a good chance that it will stay this way, in fact they just confirmed that to me, and they are working on a second album, Cain's Reign, stay tuned !
