Kalpataru Tree - Luminosophy

Here is the fourth album of Kalpataru Tree, an artist whose name you'd do well to remember forever if you like to delve in the vibrating lagoons of psydub. I had already shared his last album Scattered Fragments of The Eternal Dream last year. But I must admit this one is my all time favourite, and fits easily in the very private club of my personal greatest hits of the universe. Each track has its word to say, its story to share... By mixing instrumentals and electronic sounds, Kalpataru Tree once again create a parallel world of vibrations where everything is connected and beautifully evident, sublime.

UK Glitch Hop - This is UK Glitch Hop ! Volume #1

You see what happens when you look for free glitch music on the web of love ? This is what happens !

Compiled by Morbidly Obese Midget (love this name), this release is an extract of what happens every evening from 10 pm to midnight on Glitch FM, a web radio that nicely suggests "saturating our ears with delectable details". Go give it an ear or two, it's free and it hits the spot, like a big bowl of electric fresh air.

While I'm at it, you don't see the UK flag on a pack of fries every day...

Esbe - Bloomsday

A collection of beautiful chilly gems, well-used samples. This is not by chance if Esbe's Bloomsday is already #1 in Bandcamp's hip-hop charts. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this release. It is the work of a master, sharpened to perfection and which will certainly please the everyman as well as the instrumental hip-hop afficionados hiding among you.

Prog Sphere Promotions (VA) - Progstravaganza: Selections I

Avast you lovers of progressive rock, progressive metal, progressists, lovers of music that goes wild, of King Crimson, Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Tool and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Here is something to satiate your needs well and for long.

Prog Sphere Promotion is a label from Serbia and as you may as well have understood already, they specialise in all kinds of music containing the letters "prog" in their names, a musical style that is relatively obscure and hard to grasp, going as well with rock than with metal, infusing itself with influences from jazz-fusion. It is a music that lingers (lots of tracks of more than ten minutes), that stretches itself with long master solos (guitar, drums, organ, synth, bass...) lyrics ranging from melancholy to romantism on the verge of lyric poetry.

But it is also a music that is completely crazy, absolutely not neutral, as you may already understand listening to track 2 (my favourite). I'm saying this for the people using La Mojo to put some music during parties, this won't work with this compilation, unless all your friends are unconditional lovers of progressive music.

I'll leave you to your listening now, and let us hope that 2015 will be a really good year, that will see real change in the system, but that will give birth to a LOT of good free music, always as good and powerful as it was before. Strength and honor.
