    Blackfilm - Blackfilm
    This stuff simply defines cinematic. Its orchestral nuances and muffled piano, spectral voices and effective interlude transitions, among other elements, serve to elucidate this formative strategy. As the second release for young label Spectraliquid (based in Athens, Greece), "Blackfilm" reflects a promising musical direction and, more significantly, astute artist selectivity.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...lackfilm_b.htm


    Non Ethos - Syk Asfalt
    "Syk Asfalt" contains the intimateness of your own thoughts, interspersed with insidious looped segments of uncertain origin and at times deeply unsettling effects. It is that rare thing: an album that grabs your attention from the first and keeps a slowly tightening grip right through to the end. Bleak, bitter, cold - and brilliant.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...onethos_sa.htm


    Plastic Violence - A Mouthful of Dust (A Soundtrack for the Desertic Soundscapes - Vol. 1)
    "A Mouthful of Dust" manages to maintain an overall unhurriedness or patience about it, from death-march-tempo cadences to ambient crackling and molasses-infused psychedelics. The desert is expansive indeed.

    Reviews


    Feu Follet - FogbankFor its tenth release Triple Bath asked Tobias Fisher - known for his activities for the highly praised Tokafi webzine, as well as his labels Einzeleinheit and Ex Ovo - for a release. Under the name Feu Follet, Fisher creates massive ambient soundscapes built from drones, field recordings, loops and additional instruments.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...eufollet_f.htm


    Oxygenfad - OxygenfadListening to Oxygenfad's self-titled CD is like channel surfing at high speed with the picture off. There really is something for (almost) everyone here. You never know what you're going to get next, and while in lesser hands the quick change from one genre to another (sometimes mid-track) could wear thin pretty quickly, Oxygenfad's assured handling of the material shines through.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...xygenfad_o.htm


    Autopsia - The Berlin RequiemAutopsia have an impressive history of making singular, inspired music that spans genres. In fact, the only common thread binding their massive discography together is the pervading sense of impending doom that typifies this Czech outfit. "The Berlin Requiem" is therefore no surprise in terms of subject matter and atmospheric content.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...topsia_tbr.htm


    Disharmony - XframesAlthough cinematic in nature, "XFrames" is essentially downtempo EBM with ritual ambient influences. Often individual tracks are more iterative than suits the styling, however there is suitable variation between tracks to avoid redundancy.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...sharmony_x.htm


    Numbers On The Mast - Numbers On The MastThematically occultist in nature, the debut by this Austin-based trio is a curious affair. As usual, the armoury is stocked with a variety of synths and a plethora of lord-knows-what mixed into the pot to create a stream of eclectic and ominous absorbing drones teetering along with flashes of organic sounds that seem to be the standard within this genre.

    Interviews


    Squid - Bugs Crawling Out Of People
    Though not remarkably active release-wise, Bugs Crawling Out Of People has consistently released intense material which, despite a wide variety of styles, shares a visceral and deeply cynical vision of existence.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/inte...gscrawling.htm


    Reviews


    Unterm Rad - The Rake's Progress
    A wonderfully experimental release and has the added bonus towards the end of a fair few remixes that add a new level to the journey, giving the tracks some essential edges that a few listeners out there may be craving for midway through the proceedings.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ermrad_trp.htm


    Ultraviolet - The Thin Line Between Love And Addiction
    A pretty good album compared to many artists. Originality is always a problem in pop music, but at least Ultraviolet have taken some of the latest influences to use for their own ends, in quite an effective manner.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...et_ttlblaa.htm


    V/A - ...Where Tattered Clouds Are Stranding
    Certainly this compilation is worth listening to for anyone interested in neo-folk and dark ambient, but the Einar Jónsson connection could have been developed further and there are plenty of higher quality compilations available for those new to the scene.

    Interviews


    Audiotrauma Collective - Audiotrauma
    Though not very active as a label until recently, this young collective has already left an enduring mark in the field of undergroung electronic music, in France and abroad, both because of the pool of talent that makes up the collective and of the events that it organized and which culminated in the still-remembered Noxious Art festivals.

    Fractional - Come Mierda
    "Come Mierda" is, in essence, more like dark IDM than ambient, industrial or drum'n'bass, but will appeal to fans across all these genres for different reasons. Imagine a chimeric creation mingling Squarepusher, Panacea, Ah Cama-Sotz and Haujobb, and you'll have something approximating Fractional in mind.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ctional_cm.htm


    Absent - Children
    A pretty good release that is sure to find adepts among appreciators of precise dark electronica but, in the end, there's a feeling that the relationship between the several media that comprise it isn't somewhat lopsided.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_absent_c.htm


    Electric Colony - Electric Colony
    This album is definitely worth a listen; something you can play at work without drawing the eyebrows or criticism of your co-workers in neighboring cubes or when you're in the mood for something mellow without compromising on depth.

    Flint Glass - Circumsounds
    Flint Glass (Gwenn Trémorin), having built a name in post-industrial dark electronics through various releases, remixes and side projects (notably Tzolk'in), not to mention tireless creativity and production prowess, delivers a natural winner with "Circumsounds."
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...intglass_c.htm


    Bisclaveret - Amalgame
    Calling on the talents of various artists from the dark ambient, industrial and related genres, Bisclaveret compiled an interesting and varied set of reinterpretations of four of their original atmospheric tracks.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...claveret_a.htm


    Critikal - Graphorrhea
    "Graphorrhea" is defined as "the writing of long lists of meaningless words, as occurs in some manic disorders," a confused and volatile state which is very much the order of the day for the forty-minute duration of this offering from Critikal. A true meeting of opposites, "Graphorrhea" is a triumph.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...critikal_g.htm


    V/A - Sonderling
    A curious little release, this one. Fans of much of the output from the Ad Noiseam stable may find something amongst these tracks to keep them happy, and I would presume this is squarely the market this release aims at.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...sonderling.htm


    Everything Goes Cold - Prepare To Be Refrigerated
    While Everything Goes Cold is effectively a comedy act, it is by no means a jokeand the musical delivery is dead serious. A solid and rather enjoyable release, "Prepare To Be Refrigerated" seems to suffer from a certain repetition with not enough original tracks and many remixes of those same tracks.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...scold_ptbr.htm


    Mandelbrot - Thorns
    A sophisticated jaunt of headphone euphoria that has the ability to dissolve useless distractions within the subconscious and allow uninhibited explorations into Mandelbrot's shadowy intentions.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ndelbrot_t.htm


    V/A - Broken Line Remixes
    The first thing that is evident when listening to this interesting collection of remixes is that it is a distinctly experimental and sometimes abstract reinterpretation of the source material that often bears little or no resemblance to the original content.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_va_blr.htm


    Mark Hamn - Je Déchire L'Ongle Aux Criminels
    It would be fair to say that this album is a bit hit and miss and the artist's knowledge and fascination with music in film is very obvious when listening to it. A moderate success and certainly an artist to keep an eye on.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...amn_jdloac.htm


    Freeze Etch - Vessels
    With a mixture of foreboding experimental electronics and carefully modulated, spacious ambiences, Freeze Etch strives to capture a hard sci-fi theme (think of the album title, not to mention tracks like "Soarover" and "Freight Memory"), yet somehow misses its grasp at galactic brilliance.

    Ad·ver·sary - Bone Music
    This isn't a groundbreaking album by any means. It is, however, a deeply personal album made from a masterfully produced mix of genres.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...versary_bm.htm


    Concrete Cookie & the Maggot Farmer - Mondegreen
    An aptly titled aural malapropism, this is an engaging release that nods in the direction of other artists within its chosen genre, whilst keeping something back that marks out its own individuality.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...otfarmer_m.htm


    Thomas Watkiss - Ancestor - Phase 1: Silence
    What is exceptional about "Silence" is its undeniable delicacy of movement. As with many of its peers, this is music of meditation and patience, funereal reverb and thick layers of emptiness. Its power lies in the understated and tentative, the barely audible oscillations, passionate organic textures and rumbling arrays.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...tkiss_ap1s.htm


    Famine - Every Mirror Turns Black
    A particularly painful album to categorize, as it represents somewhere in the vicinity of fourteen years of music production experience coming to a head. But that doesn't mean it's a bad album - on the contrary, Famine deliver something that's difficult to get into, but even harder to stop listening to.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...amine_emtb.htm


    Perfection Plastic - Triomphe de la Matière
    One of those albums to crank out before heading out for a night on the tiles. Fun, without threat, and will not be out of place sat in the collections of the hearts of you out there who simply like letting your hair down and not getting bogged down in technicalities.

    Blaerg - Dysphoric Sonorities
    Blaerg effectively went beyond the breakcore paradigms of 'faster-harder-louder' and insane chaos, creating a truly captivating album - an interesting assortment of intelligent and methodical compositions with definite groove which, despite the title and the occasional harsher track, is actually quite laidback and bound to appeal to more than just the breakcore enthusiasts.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_blaerg_ds.htm


    Majdanek Waltz - Hamlet's Childhood
    A well organized and well recorded album, full of emotional music, beautiful instrumentation and composition, and it will definitely enthrall you and keep you listening. Song after song, "Hamlet's Childhood" evokes grief and still stands out as an amazing industrial folk album.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ekwaltz_hc.htm


    Insane Asylum - Caustic Factory Outlet
    The distorted, discordant initial impression of this EP by Insane Asylum evolves into something more coherent and cohesive as time passes, eventually growing into something pleasantly noisy, rather than the slapdash arrangement it seems to be.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...asylum_cfo.htm


    V/A - Ressonus net vol.1
    Where some ambient music is easily listenable, atmospheric stuff that can enhance or even alter a mood, this is, by and large, flat and lifeless, save for a few hounourable mentions. The intent is above reproach - individual, hand-crafted and unique musical endeavours - but the content fails to live up to it.

    Reviews


    Fractional - Come Mierda EP
    A short, sweet release from Belgian artist Fractional, this EP takes a selection of tracks from the full-length, "Come Mierda," adds a new number and throws in two remixes (from DJ Hidden and Cdatakill) to boot. It EP proves a worthwhile sampler, useful for DJs and collectors alike. A call for alternative remixed tracks than just the one would be the only complaint.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ional_cmep.htm


    Synnack - v2
    With generous extras thrown in as here, and a quality of musicianship outshining some of the minor failings, "V2" is definitely a worthwhile release for anybody interested in the more industrial end of experimental electronica, another good reason to keep buying CDs in this iPod dominated age!
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...synnack_v2.htm


    Alien Skin - Do Not Open Till Doomsday
    So with no complaints other than the occasional cheesy lyric or annoying vocal effect, which accompany most synthpop albums of above average quality these days, Alien Skin's debut offers a maturity and expertise lacking in the majority of similar groups and is recommended.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...nskin_dotd.htm


    Xsoz - Basic Topology
    "Basic Topology" lacks the solid foundation it needs to maintain a perpetual shelf life. With a little more essence added to the core of the Xsoz sound, Raptis may have something that will etch itself into the minds of his potential listeners; regrettably this just isn't that album.

    Interviews


    Justin Brink - Pneumatic Detach
    Pneumatic Detach is the solo project of Massachusetts-based Justin Brink. Since his debut release in 2001, Pneumatic Detach has gained steady momentum and carved a name for himself as one of the most unique acts in the underground industrial/rhythmic noise scene.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/inte...aticdetach.htm


    Reviews


    Gjöll - Way Through Zero
    Periodically we find albums like Gjöll's "Way Through Zero" which, unlike 75% of the same old, recycled garbage out there that passes for industrial nowadays, album still manages to evoke emotion without reeking of cheesy manufactured angst for angst's sake.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_gjoll_wtz.htm


    Ninth Desert - Different Trouble Experiences Of Twilight
    "Different Trouble Experiences of Twilight" is a confident, well-structured journey, one that requires more than one listen to fully appreciate, and which rewards listeners with a rich, uncluttered soundscape in which to lose themselves.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...sert_dteot.htm


    Maurizio Bianchi & Sparkle In Grey - Nefelodhis
    An enjoyable listen that goes across vast sonic territory, sometimes sounding something akin to dreamy shoegaze music and at other times disturbing noises and bizarre sounds. Although it covers a lot of territory, it manages good transitions so it doesn't have the problem of jumping all over the place.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...leingrey_n.htm


    V/A - D-Trash Records Music Videos
    The diversity of featured artists means there's something for everyone on this release, and the added bonus of the Jukebox feature makes it a very well rounded retrospective of D-Trash's work to date. Looking forward to the next ten years!
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_va_dtrmv.htm


    Somegirl - The Velvet Hour
    Though when listening to "The Velvet Hour" one gets a justified sense of déjà entendu, it remains a solid release. Nevertheless, good as it may be, Somegirl would certainly benefit from being more daring both musically as well as lyrically: the talent and creativity are there, they just have to tap it.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...megirl_tvh.htm


    Kotra - Reset
    If there was such a thing as 'avant-garde/experimental lounge music,' "Reset" could easily fit the description and purpose. In the meantime, "Reset" can feel like a work in progress, the aural version of the artist's notebook: it may be interesting but it's appeal is limited to a small audience and definitely an acquired taste.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_kotra_r.htm


    Nerthus - Urban
    Plodding percussion and glitched-out synth lines whir throughout and are the backbone of the composition. Apt for a restless sleep or in accompaniment to an evening of hallucinogenic introspection, "Urban" will undoubtedly stir your thoughts.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_nerthus_u.htm


    Battery Cage - Forever Never Ends
    All in all, "Forever Never Ends" is a musically diverse recording featuring some enjoyable moments, albeit its lack of focus and a scattering of influences will either enthrall or irk the listener, depending on who is wearing the headphones.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...rycage_fne.htm


    History Of Guns - Acedia
    Overall, "Acedia" sounds almost exactly like what one might have imagined, back in the day, punk rock should be in the twenty-first century. Too bad, most punk rockers never looked beyond their narrow alleys, which History of Guns have clearly done. Maybe because they're not exactly punk rockers.

    Default Connexion Bizarre update 20080901

    After a short hiatus of nearly a month we're back with a massive update!
    As mentioned in the previous mailing, Connexion Bizarre saw some changes with this new mailing. Firstly is a slight redesign to give more overall coherence to the website. Secondly, and most important, is the addition of two new sections, one of online releases and a webstore (which already existed but to which was given greater proeminence).

    The new "Releases" section is, after a fashion the new 'netlabel' arm of Connexion Bizarre. Rather than developing a de facto netlabel, the idea behind this initiative is simply to expand our work of showcasing new music by collaborating with artists and other music enthusiasts in this endeavour. Currently under development are several compilations following the format set with "You Are Here: A Compilation Of Wisconsin Electronics" (curated by none other than Matt Fanale of Caustic), originally released in early 2007, for which artists were selected based on geographical location rather than music genres.

    While not a new addition to the site, the "Store" section was moved to greater proeminence. In addition to time and effort, Connexion Bizarre has its expenses and any revenue from sales will help to offset these. In addition to what is already available (Connexion Bizarre badges), there are plans for a couple of weird additions (which we hope will prove interesting) planned for the near future.

    Anyway, enough blabber and on to the list of updates for the rentrée...

    Webcast: "August 2008" with music selection by http://www.razorgrrl.com/ - DJ Razor*Grrrl and "Fiscal year 2008-2009 (step one)" with music selection by M.
    Reviews: Roughhausen "The Agony of the Beat", Fluorescent Grey "Gaseous Opal Orbs", Junkboy "Three", V/A "nucd#02", Dissamonix "Disharmonic Universe", FT13 "The Great Disaster", Ebola "Mutant Dubstep Vol.1", Logoplasm "Testa Piena D'Orche", Psycho Shop "My Sweet Holocaust"
    Interviews: Dmytro Fedorenko of Kvitnu
    Releases: grouping all past Connexion Bizarre online releases in one 'netlabel' section with more releases to come soon.
    Media: several installments of Business Traveller (yes, it was updated during August...)
    Store: be the envy of your peers by getting a set of exclusive Connexion Bizarre badges!
    Also this week, we announce the winner of the D-Trash Records giveaway (see below for details).

    Incidentally, Connexion Bizarre is nearing 5 years of existence. That's a long time.



    D-Trash Records giveaway

    We had a set of three releases from the Canadian label D-Trash Records (http://www.dtrashrecords.com/ - www.dtrashrecords.com) to give away: 1 copy of the D-Trash artists compilation "Rising Tide", 1 copy of the Atari Teenage Riot tribute compilation "The Virus Has Been Spread" and 1 copy of the recently released "D-Trash Records' Music Videos" DVD compilation.
    The winner was: Eric G. (us).

    Dmytro Fedorenko - Kvitnu
    Ukrainian label run by Dmytro Fedorenko (Kotra), started at the end of year 2006, with the aim to amplify the electronic experimental outputs from the land of Ukraine and to discover new musical variations from the outer world. Kvitnu concentrates on music and ideas with a high blood pressure in its sound-veins.

    Roughhausen - The Agony of the Beat
    Occasionally, little wonders slip through the cracks and escape the notice of record labels. Roughhausen's "Agony of the Beat" is such a specimen - varied, dynamic, danceable and eminently listenable, all rolled into one, this release is truly a reviewer's joy.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...usen_taotb.htm


    Fluorescent Grey - Gaseous Opal Orbs
    Unlike many bands sheltering under the 'experimental' tag, this guy rarely falls into comfortable predictability, and many of the tracks sound pretty far removed from your intial impressions by the end. The overall result is rather jolly, and reminds you that quirky avant-garde music can be fun, and needn't be listened to on Sennheisers in a darkened room.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ntgrey_goo.htm


    Junkboy - Three
    "Three" might well be called vapid or monotonous by impatient critics looking for something less hermitic and more conspicuous than idle, syrup-dipped compositions. However, it is precisely these jejune traits that lend Junkboy its special, engrossing character. When the mood is right, "Three" fits just fine.

    Numusic Records compiled "nucd#02" to showcase the varied styles of electronic music represented at their music festival. Compiled from a range of international and Norwegian artists, especially those from the immediate Stavanger area of Norway where the label resides, the mix of genres represented is varied and contrasting, representing the diversity of the artists appearing at the event.

    Dissamonix - Disharmonic Universe
    This German duo's sound covers a wide range, from lurching beats and swirly guitar to calm spasms and spaced-out ambience. Often off-kilter and detuned, but routinely interesting, "Disharmonic Universe" stays true to its name as Dissamonix dispatches seven tracks of structured slow-motion mayhem, full of bass frequencies and tripped-out beats.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...samonix_du.htm


    FT13 - The Great Disaster
    A bit heavy on the angst, a bit light on sincerity. Focusing either on a harsher, more stripped-down minimalist sound or opting for depth and technicality, rather than vacillating between the two poles, would improve the end result no end.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_ft13_tgd.htm


    Ebola - Mutant Dubstep Vol.1
    Haemorrhagic reactions abound when listening to this four-track teaser EP that merely hints at what may yet be to come. Overall, excitement levels when confronted by this recording did not match the anticipated response - a breakcore/gabba/dubstep crossover works far better in theory than in practice...
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ebola_mdv1.htm


    Logoplasm - Testa Piena D'Orche
    Logoplasm's realm of feedback and pink noise, voyeurism and mundanity, and comfort and fear challenges listeners to discover significance in the thirty-five minutes of "Testa Piena D'Orche" (meaning "head full of orcas") - a struggle that may well leave some wanting.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...plasm_tpdo.htm


    Psycho Shop - My Sweet Holocaust
    Although Psycho Shop have an impressive collective experience when it comes to making music, this does not translate that effectively when listening to "My Sweet Holocaust", their first studio album. Although the combination of ethereal female with harsh male vocals has been a successful formula for other darkwave/EBM acts in the past, it doesn't gel quite as well here.

    Default Connexion Bizarre update 20080908

    Connexion Bizarre was updated on 2008-09-08 with new content. A couple of new reviews, an interview, new installment of the "Business Traveller" ongoing fiction series, new links and, last but not least, the release of the second volume of the "You Are Here" music compilation series.

    Compiled by NY-based musician/DJ/promoter Ben Dewalt (better known for his alias Terrorfakt and DJ Hellraver), "You Are Here Vol.2: a Compilation of New York Electronics" features a selection of tracks by emerging and confirmed artists from the New York electronic music underground, in styles ranging from Experimental and Industrial to IDM, Power Electronics and Rhythmic Noise. Released under a Creative Commons license, this compilation follows from last year's compilation dedicated to the state of Wisconsin (still available from our releases section) and will soon be followed by others following the same concept. Currently in the works are compilations for the states of California, Illinois and Massachussetts, with other states and countries already being considered. Scroll down for more details and download links.

    Anyway, here's a quick overview of this week's updates:

    Webcast: "AXXY.025.7718" with music selection by :JW: and "Progressive Daily Grind Release" with music selection by M.
    Reviews: Prospero "Folie à deux", Thelmo Cristovam "Thelmo Cristovam - Paisagens Sonoras em Ostro Hyija"

    Pål Asle Pettersen and Helge Olav Øksendal - Zang:
    Managed by Pål Asle Pettersen and Helge Olav Øksendal (known for his solo music work as HOH), this Norwegian record label focuses on experimental electronic and electro-acoustic music and it is also the hub for several initiatives of performative experimental sound-art.

    Reviews


    Prospero - Folie à deux
    Trying to pin down Prospero and slot him into a pigeonhole is pretty much downright impossible, and that's the beauty with this CD; the journey takes in better scenery and the ride is more comfortable and reassuring than before.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ospero_fad.htm


    Thelmo Cristovam - Paisagens Sonoras em Ostro Hyija
    This complex, thoughtful effort is well worth checking out via the Triple Bath website. Personal, engrossing and utterly without pretension, it is a welcome change from the increasing number of mono-toned, featureless soundscapes.

    Reviews

    VortexSoundTech - Fiery Silence
    Throughout the entire album, the listener is presented with introverse, rich, textured industrial soundscapes that mutate and narrow into upbeat electro melodies - only to be blown out into heavy, suppressing basslines, accompanied by atmospheric, minimalistic orchestral pieces that further evolve into dark, psychadelic, multilayered and slightly off-kilter synthlines.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...undtech_fs.htm

    Mangadrive - These.Blades.Will.Never.Rust
    Unapologetic, hi-energy dance music, pure, simple and unadulterated by lofty ideals and messages. Mangadrive bangs out a blistering rhythmic tattoo into the unsuspecting skulls of its listeners, an aural shot of espresso that has the potential to kickstart any dancefloor. And that includes the mainstream.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...rive_tbwnr.htm

    Faux Pride - Slapstick Bitch
    Despite a few ear-grabbing moments "Slapstick Bitch" is not a thrilling listen. While the artist seems quite at ease and competent at creating intense hardcore tracks, that clearly isn't the case when he tries his hand at creating material on a more experimental style; perhaps he should concentrate and develop what he does best before moving on to territory where he is clearly less at ease.

    Interviews

    Aleksey Chechulin - Cold Graey
    Cold Graey is one of those cases which proves that talent and creativity are not the exclusive of established record labels, thriving equally well in a do-it-yourself setting. With a roster of very talented artists, this obscure Russian label is worthy of note for the the care which they put into their extremely limited editions, as each superbly handcrafted release is a work of art on its own.

    Reviews

    Renfro - Mathematics
    Renfro's music in "Mathematics" must be appreciated like a fine wine: with time and without worries. As well as a great soundtrack for moments of solitude it is also something to be enjoyed in the company of a special someone. It is an amazing piece of work, surely bound to become a timeless and unforgetable classic for those who listen to it.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_renfro_m.htm

    Nicholas Szczepanik - Iomicin
    Judging from "Iomicin", mr. Szczepanik definitely is a creative individual and goes about his music in a unique way that keeps you guessing and keeps things interesting.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...czepanik_i.htm

    V/A - Rückwärts Im Uhrzeigersinn
    With sixteen exciting, genre-bending, atom-splitting cuts of the juiciest contemporary electronica this is a fairly laidback release overall but everything is just so damn listenable, you can easily forgive the artists for not kick-drum-blasting your eardrums out of the sides of your head.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_va_riu.htm

    Kiethevez - Non-Binary
    "Non-Binary" offers up eleven tracks of quality synthpop the likes of which the Swedes seem to be born to write, with no confusion about meaning or intent. A very accomplished and mature sounding record, where the years of experience are evident in the skilful combination of subtle synth work, considered guitar playing and clean, melodic singing.

    Reviews

    Tapage - The Institute Of Random Events
    While there are a lot of events in each track, there's an enchanting minimal feel to the whole album. If you've been awake for too long, and require an album to help you think while you slowly pass out from exhaustion on your ugly couch - this is it! Or, if you wanted Hecq to do an album with breaks and click/pops, this might be as close as it gets.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...page_tiore.htm

    Angelspit - Blood Death Ivory
    Angelspit's highly visual methodology makes them stand out and, watered-down anarchic attitude notwithstanding, their music is not bad by any means. It's a lot of fun, something far too many bands overlook in their efforts to be 'dark'. The production quality is top-notch, too, and the lyrics, while not Shakespeare, carry a great sense of apathetic urban disillusionment.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...elspit_bdi.htm

    STROM.ec - Divine Legions Beyond Psyche
    In conclusion, STROM.ec show effortlessly how they can make harsh and aggressive power electronics as effectively as you want, but the important thing is how well they mix that up with dark ambient and experimental industrial passages, trying new ideas and never allowing things to become formulaic or stagnate.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...romec_dlbp.htm

    Murder By Static - Exsits
    Though an enjoyable listen, this album could perhaps benefit from extended track lengths and more events would give each song more character. As IDM it's somewhat enjoyable, but it seems to incorporate the most boring aspects from other (sub?)genres of electronic music.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...bystatic_e.htm

    ReAdjust - Statement
    The main downfall of the album seemed to be a lack of good production/mastering. A stronger snare/clap could have really improved the sound of a few tracks, and all the sounds seemed to get lost in the mix. Remember one lesson that can be taken from cheesy-trance: even if the music is overdone and cliché, if it is produced well, the kids will love it.

    Reviews

    Mono-Amine - Industrial Thought Patterns
    Not since Converter's legendary "Blast Furnace" have I felt quite as happy with my rivethead status. This is, without a doubt, some of the finest industrial/powernoise it has been my pleasure to listen to in a long time.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_monoamine_itp.htm">Read more

    AZ-Rotator - Indefinable Sugar Cube
    "Indefinable Sugar Cube" can be a difficult album to get into initially and is not the best introduction to AZ-Rotator's work for the first-time listener. Nevertheless, it is an excellent piece of work and bound to please those who appreciate well-produced, complex IDM and abstract electronica with a playful twist.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_azrotator_isc.htm">Read more

    Integral - Rise
    "Rise" is definitely an album that's been highly refined, with amazing production quality, and various parts have been worked on for a long time. Aside from a few regressive tendencies, it's an amazing release.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_integral_r.htm">Read more

    Oszillotom - Energetika
    Oszillotom create music that is deep, distorted and chaotic but do so in a perfectly calculated way that results in a collection of superbly realised tracks. Showcasing a range of styles from tense, dark ambient through to heavy multi-layered drones and visiting several points between the two extremes, Oszillotom show there is more to their music than wonderfully executed industrial noise.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_oszillotom_e.htm">Read more

    Myrrman - PorNOsmagoria
    It's a malicious, unpleasant record, likely to scare away most listeners - unless you happen to like the foot-cramping vertigo that comes with an unwilling paradigm shift. For me, personally, it was wonderful, original mood music to accompany my lengthy commutes to and from work, inspiring all sorts of antisocial mental meandering...
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_myrrman_p.htm">Read more

    C/A/T - The Great Crisis
    "The Great Crisis" is both a simple machine and the maddening administrator of melodic crunch. While the classic C/A/T sound is still present, overall, this new album tends to sound a touch more refined than previous releases.

    Reviews

    Autoclav1.1 - Love No Longer Lives Here
    Catharsis junkies, be advised, this is your one-way ticket exiting Purgatory. The music is spacious and panoramic, richly layered and complex, and always reminds its listener of progression and increase and denouement. Unfolding casually, the album soon climbs into a thing nakedly beautiful and kinetic, tangible in its raw intimacy.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...av11_lnllh.htm

    Mort Douce - Locust Dreams
    Mort Douce creates a very nice combination of drones and ambient, and the high quality of the tracks are a mere indication of why it took him five years to finish this album.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...rtdouce_ld.htm

    Moogulator - The Digital Anatomist Project
    On first listen, this album may well be a disconcerting experience, especially for those who are not familiar with fractured rhythmic structures, glitch and seemingly random sound compositions. "The Digital Anatomist Project" is not an easy album to get into but it has definite moments of brilliance which could have been further explored.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...ulator_dap.htm

    Babylone Chaos/Lambwool/Le Diktat - Shi
    A decent album, not brilliant but with flashes of something fantastic here and there. The amalgamations of these artists together fuse some very interesting pieces indeed, but none quite match the individuality of Lambwool and Le Diktat on their own, which is a shame.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_va_shi.htm

    HIV+/Babylone Chaos - Split
    The music isn't what sells this EP - the artwork, the artists' names and, ultimately, the exclusivity of the item unfortunately overshadow the very powerful moods portrayed within the very well constructed sounds delivered by two extremely capable established industrial acts.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_va_split.htm

    Not Half - Radioactive Monster Cats From Planet XLG-5
    A pointless C-division album that will get lost in a scene where there is such high quality control amongst its upper echelons.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...alf_rmcfpx.htm

    Soman - Mask
    All of the songs here shamelessly flaunt the techno blueprint so many have worked from. Each track offers nothing more than simple, mindless Electronic Body Music that will keep your head nodding, whether to the repetitive beats and yawn-worthy synth patterns, or in an effort to keep yourself from falling asleep.

    Reviews

    Displacer - The Witching Hour
    Brace yourself for a hair-raising, ultra-chill experience. Oxymoronic, without doubt, but apt all the same when describing Morton's latest tour de force, "The Witching Hour." Listen to "The Witching Hour" past midnight, if you dare, but keep careful watch on the shadows, and be sure to glance behind once in a while...
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...splacer_wh.htm

    Fin de Siécle - Nine Barns
    This is an engaging release no less of European sounding cinematic music, that is as strange as it gets. Organic instrumentation takes form with the prominent use of violins alongside guitars, female vocals, piano and analogue delay, and adds to the overall raw feel to the release and it's a welcome one at that.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...esiecle_nb.htm

    Bramble - Emergence
    "Emergence", if we are to believe the press surrounding this disc is the result of vocal sound manipulations and nothing more. If this truly is the case then this has been done extremely well as the drones and sub-dark ambient sounds could easily have come from more conventional synthesizer sources.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_bramble_e.htm

    Nwodtlem - Video πR8
    "πR8" is a pretty interesting selection and it is good to see something relatively artistic being made with breakcore, as the genre does tend to be a bit silly and not massively creative - but this has proven to me that breakcore can be artsy and silly all at the same time.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...wodtlem_vp.htm

    Xentrifuge - Light Extinguished
    "Light Extinguished" has girth, drive, and pure adrenaline that successfully injects a much-needed classic Industrial sound back into the harsh EBM genre. This should appeal to fans of Tactical Sekt and notable fellow newcomers such as Wynardtage and Acylum.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...trifuge_le.htm

    Mathieu Ruhlmann - The Earth Grows In Each Of Us
    The theme of regeneration of the life cycle was the main inspiration for this new album, contrasted against the ever present threat of death as his sister narrowly survived a serious road accident. A very pleasant listen at bedtime then, but slightly frustrating to the listener demanding more happenings and variation.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...nn_tegieou.htm

    Vladislav Buben - Prayers Of Steel - Prologue
    A lot of the time when passed a purely experimental CD I grit my teeth. There is a hell of a lot of experimental 'music' out there that I appreciate and a hell of a lot I simply deem as 'artistic masturbation', being very polite. Buben come dangerously close to the latter.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...buben_posp.htm

    V/A - A Weevil In A Biscuit
    Overall though "Weevil in a Biscuit" just leaves you feeling a little disappointed and unsatisfied, regardless of the really great tracks. Here's hoping Bearsuit Records focus on the really great material and get some more releases out by those artists, rather than album length releases that are mostly stuffed with fillers.

    Releases

    Various - You Are Here: a Compilation of Massachusetts Electronics (vol.2)
    Free online release showcasing a variety of musical talent from the underground electronic music scene of the US state of Massachusetts. Compiled by Massachusetts-based artist David Dodson alias Deftly-D. Volume 2 of 2.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/rele..._yahacome2.htm


    Interviews

    Thomas P. - Le Diktat
    Nourished with references from the spheres of music (industrial, hip-hop, ambient, noise), politics and visual arts, the politically-charged music of French duo Le Diktat is once again in the spotlight with the release of a second album, inspired by the neo-Luddite movement and the life of American terrorist Theodore Kaczinski.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/inte...m_lediktat.htm


    Reviews

    Mind Necrosis Factor - Morphogenesis
    "Morphogenesis" is a technical term used by biologists to describe the set up of a lifeform's structure, the beginning of its arrangement. Through this record, Pierrick Coupé wanted to recreate a similar process to combine lots of various elements into a coherent whole - and did so very succesfully.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...isfactor_m.htm

    V/A - Fabriksampler v2
    It is rare to find a compilation like this, one that flows so seamlessly and sounds so organic and coherent, gently but effortlessly grabbing the listener's attention from the beginning without any degree of intrusiveness - effectively going beyond the basic premise of a label sampler.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_va_fv2.htm

    Baxter Lilly - Unsichtbare Flecken
    Despite initial misgivings, Baxter Lilly tends to ingratiate itself with repeated listening, eventually becoming a welcome change of pace. Sadly, in today's disposal society, even in the underground fringes thereof, your average consumer may not be willing to devote the required time and effort to the album to discover its finer points.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...erlilly_uf.htm

    [:SITD:] - Bestie:Mensch
    Overall, Bestie:Mensch is a very strong Electro record that not only shows purpose and progress for an already fantastic band, but should also lure in many new listeners as word gets out about this album.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_sitd_bm.htm

    Accomplice Affair - Jezioro Wspomnien
    In summation, Accomplice Affair is the Michael Bolton of dark ambient, the sonic equivalent of British food, like lukewarm softcore porn. Indistinctive grub is better than starving, however, and softcore will do the job on cold winter nights.

    Interviews

    Pierrick C. - Mind Necrosis Factor
    In his second LP, Mind Necrosis factor combines acoustic elements and piercing rhythms, tribal cries and post-industrial atmospheres. More than genesis of a new shape, this album traces the emergence of a mind, from the obscurity of the first moments to the cessation of pain. It invites the listener to look beyond the flesh and to feel the breath of the hidden self.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/inte...osisfactor.htm


    Reviews

    Disharmony - Cloned - Other Side Of Evolution
    With "Cloned - Other Side of Evolution", Disharmony has proven that remix albums can add a whole new lease of life to tracks, and create something entirely different in the process.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...mony_cosoe.htm

    15 Degrees Below Zero - New Travel
    15 Degrees Below Zero take hold of the territory between droning ambiance and noise and meshes it together quite well and in a very pleasing way, while puting their own unique slant on the styles of music they incorporate.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_15dbz_nt.htm

    Matamachete - Tanin No Kao
    Matamachete define their music as a mix between punk, drum 'n' bass and industrial. One could easily be lead to believe that Matamachete is just another one of these digital punk, Atari Teenage Riot wanna-be bands which are often described this way. In this case, just listen and you'll quickly find out that you were wrong...
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...achete_tnk.htm

    Orchestramaxfieldparrish - The Silent Breath of Emptiness
    Listening to "The Silent Breath of Emptiness" it is amazing to think that it was recorded live as it was performed and in a single take as music of this type is often carefully orchestrated in a studio using layering techniques and all manner of electronic effects and gadgets.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...rrish_sboe.htm

    Worms Of The Earth - The Angels Of Prostitution
    "The Angels of Prostitution" is an expression of what is still left to be explored within electronic music today and an imprint which should leave a notable reverberation within those that are paying attention. If this album is a harbinger of things to come for Worms of the Earth, I'm sticking around to find out what happens next.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...eearth_aop.htm

    Voice_Electronic Duo - VED
    Something like experimental pop, wherein jazz elements, electronic loops and curious vocal manipulations stimulate compositions both expansive in their progression and crystalline in their clarity. There are hints of Portishead here, along with facets of Lali Puna, Télépopmusik and Zero 7, though altogether none of these resemblances offer a precise comparison.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...nicduo_ved.htm

    Phallus Über Alles - Les Femmes De La Guerre
    Globally, "Les Femmes de la Guerre" is a pretty well-produced EP, but isn't really enough to satisfy those of us who are waiting for a Phallus Über Alles new album since a while. Let me get this straight: this record isn't going to renew the genre, but without a doubt it's gonna kick some ass.

    V/A - C:\]_THOMAR
    It's not a bad compilation if you've got your 80's head on but fancy a modern twist on it, with some interesting twists in direction from Euthymia and Zentex. Not going to grab much attention from those who aren't familiar with the label already, but it's an interesting introduction none the less.

    Himiko - Himiko
    What is most difficult to reconcile about this album is its apparent emptiness, an impoverishment of craft that occurs despite its passionate methodology, DYI punk sensibilities and creative improvisation. "Himiko" challenges only the senses, as it batters them to porridge. But maybe that's the point?

    Releases

    Various - You Are Here: a Compilation of California Electronics (vol.1)
    Free online release showcasing a variety of musical talent from the underground electronic music scene of the US state of California. Compiled by California-based artist Shane Talada alias The Operative. Volume 1 of 2.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/rele..._yahacoce1.htm


    Interviews

    F.K.L. and Fleur Feijen - Baxter Lilly
    Hailing from Brussels, the three protagonists of this electro-industrial carnival aim to take listeners on a noisy trip to a deranged industrial funfair inhabited by psychotic clowns. Thanks to them, the greatest show on Earth has just reached a new level of derangement.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/inte...axterlilly.htm


    Reviews

    Reutoff vs. Troum - Kreuzung Zwei (Creatura Per Creaturam Continetur)
    Reutoff is working on a series of collaborations entitled "Kreuzung", and after the first one - where they worked with Antlers Mulm - and before the third one (Reutoff vs. Der Blutharsch), there is this brilliant second one in which Reutoff vs. Troum present "Kreuzung Zwei (Creatura Per Creaturam Continetur)".
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...vstroum_kz.htm

    Andrea Marutti - The Subliminal Relation Between Planets (Live in Archiaro)
    A dark but serene journey on waves of low droning sound with cascading chimes, vaguely coherent voices and other miniscule sounds carefully assembled to form a hypnotic sonic bedrock. Often resembling a deep dark ocean bed with an ever present bassy drone, each track holds a certain sub-aquatic charm of tiny chinks of sound, both melodic but strangely distant and unseen.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...rutti_srbp.htm

    Contagious Orgasm & C-drík - Journeys Into Space And Time
    Gritty and noisy, this release also has the ability to pummel the listener, which isn't surprising since one half of the act is Contagious Orgasm. C-drík lifts Contagious Orgasm just when needed gives this album a certain ease of listening when it could get a little too loud. An intriguing and intense listen for those who like their music dark and potent with a fair range of depth.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...drik_jisat.htm

    C-drík/Aluviana - Moje Čelo
    With statements that both artists have done this with a fair share of humour one may wonder if this duo is completely stark raving bonkers. Either way, funny side or not, this is professionally done and a sure-fire winner for fans of proper old industrial and dark ambient purists. A fine, disturbing listen from start to finish.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...luviana_mc.htm

    V/A - Hyperakusis
    A neat little compilation, though not one that's going to set the world alight, and nor is it one for the casual listener. If you are into odd electronics, the organic sound of ambience and approach sound with an extremely alternative ear this is one for you.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...yperakusis.htm

    Laurent Perrier - As Far As
    Saying Perrier writes obscure music is an understatement. It's a risky business producing what he has here, and more credit to him for trying. "As Far As" is by no means brilliant, dangerously teetering on overstating itself, but it's also a decent release if you are after an extremely strange album.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...errier_afa.htm

    Life Towards Twilight - An Eclipse
    Life Toward Twilight are a surprise in that it's most likely the first time anyone heard an ambient act from Detroit (these things are usually confined to the darkest depths of Europe, which has the upper hand generally in these circles). Fair to say though Life Toward Twilight play a strong hand and hold up fairly well in the grand scheme of things from the start.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...wilight_ae.htm

    Niko Skorpio - Half Born In Half Light
    There are certain stages of this CD where a genuine atmosphere is created, giving space to the drones and atmospherics, carried by the reverberation of the odd tribal beat followed by simply crushing guitar sounds. When it's done well it's fantastic, but that is simply too few and far between.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...rpio_hbihl.htm

    RachMiel - Vortex Engine
    It is obvious that RachMiel is a technically competent and well-versed experimental composer and sound designer. A good amount of thought and arrangement has gone into the pieces on "Vortex Engine," however the reward for its audience is dubious.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/revi...achmiel_ve.htm

    tBH - Book of Salms
    It's not often that the cover artwork of an album matches the music quite as well as in the case of tBH's "Book of Salms". The desolate loneliness in the grainy, sepia-toned empty landscapes mirrors exactly the musical entropy enclosed within these five deep, meandering journeys through musical melancholia.
    http://www.connexionbizarre.net/reviews/r_tbh_bos.htm

    Brand New Day - Style
    One can't really t help but think that even synthpop aficionados will turn up their noses at this one.
