William Stuckey – Love of Mine (1979 -> 2021 re-release)

Jan 疆 Hasker – 城市 – City (2018)

Claire and I met this person on JQBX who goes by Manjuuk and we started jamming to asian music and he played this song that made my jaw drop. The genre blending and the complex rhythms left me astonished. The album was just as interesting as that song. I hope to find more like it.

Ethiopian style jazz all the easy from Belgium, with hints of dub.

Mansfield T.Y.A. – Monument Ordinaire (2021)

Harmonically, no orgasm to be found here. But if you like dark electro pop songs, you could pick this for your emo episode.

Slowtai- Tyron (2021)

First side – YUH, second side – Sad YUH.
In all seriousness , really enjoyed the production on all these tracks . I felt like I was ‘trapping’ through a fuzzy dreamscape and i was about to get an answer I was looking for. Personal favorites were “PLAY WITH FIRE”, feel away, terms, and nhs.

Tradionational Ghanian music filtered through modern styles. The Kologo is a stringed lute.

4 Mars – Super Somal Sounds from the Gulf of Tadjoura (2021)

Fantastic selection of tunes from the Somalian group, with almost a reggae /dub aesthetic in parts. Highly recommended.

Amazing opening piece from his upcoming solo album “Entendre”.

Submitted by Claire

Wau Wau Collectif – Waral Sa Doom (2021)

Multi genre album from the Senegalese group. At times it radiates a fairy or ethereal quality.

Submitted by Hoggy

Lloyd Miller, Adam Terry Michael, Ian Camp – At The Ends Of The World (2020)

CARM – CARM (2021)

On this album trumpetist Camerieri uses horns to play the rolls of guitar, bass and drums, accompanied by electronics.

Submitted by Richard

Myriam Alter – Where Is There (2007)

Cozy Jazz. Clarinett and cello to bring some more smoothness. Nice pieces nicely arranged. Not the most organic but very tasty out of the box.

Submitted by wilmerton

Gooooose – Crater Monde 2 (2021, compilation)

That is good, slightly gloomy electronic. Just weird enough, lots of differences but you can take something home of most tracks; if you don’t like one, you can always skip.

Submitted by wilmerton

Dictaphone – Goats & Distortions 5 (2021)

Is it jazz? Kinda a feels like it from the base experimental vibe that comes of it. It is ambient for sure though. Acoustic, a tad glitchy. A bit dark. A bit light. The kind of mix of complexity and accessibility which will make you come back for a second take.

Submitted by wilmerton

The Gallands – Underlying Truth (2020)

Apparently a first single for the belgium father-and-son duo, although they kinda look the same age on their bio.

Submitted by shroomie
