HIGH&DRYs - Lowest Fidelity Demos

Feels like a small psych-rock gig, in a small room with dim lights, a smell of coffee, beer and scratched guitar chords in the air... Lowest Fidelity Demos is a dozen tracks of scratchy lo-fi psych-rock, with ghostly voices losing themselves in outer space, echoing riffs, and a sound that feels like raw wood.

Lo-fi is the opposite of hi-fi and a recording technique all in one. There are people who like listening to their music with the utmost sound quality with super power lord bass booster detecter automatic channel tracking (and I do too), and then there are other, strange people who prefer when the sound coughs and scratches a little, who record their music with old tools and instruments to be able to feel what seems to be impressions from another time, lost to some, ever living to others.

Au moins ça sera plus facile à écouter en live. Allez je vous laisse, il pleut.

Androcell - Imbue

I don't think I have already mentioned Androcell's name on the Mojoblog before, and that is a wrong I'm about to correct. I guess that is because his music has begun being free-priced not so long ago. And I might as well start at the end with Imbue, his fourth and latest album. The other three are really worth a listen I can assure you.

Androcell takes us across the doors of perception, amidst strange valleys covered with divine monoliths, illuminated by an unknown sun through the dimensions, to a circus where neurons show unexpected dance talents, until a sacred encounter with the root of life. No, I did not take anything special, it's just the effect of this music, I swear.

Neon - Transgressive

A little stroll through Ektoplazm's corridors is a good opportunity to learn more about trance, to read for the first time words like "psygressive", "forest-trance" or (more weird and exotic) "suomi-trance". Here is what I would call a good example of progressive deep-trance. Deep because Neon uses deep repetitive beats that hold the music like caterpillar tracks hold their tanks, and progressive not only because the music take its time to develop, but also because it never escalates to a big brutal "drop the bass". Some people like it, some people don't, I do like it.

101 - You Are What You Become

This excellent album seems to be coming from the past, say the 80's, with distorted synths, nervous beats that hit the spot, and an overall atmosphere of a tramway going out of tracks into space to split the moon into two perfect pieces.

This kind of music is called Braindance, because it makes the brain tap its feet.

Yes the Bandcamp link is not free, as usual with CT Records you have to go on their website directly and click on the "free download with" link.
