Afasia Yuri – Flow.w.w.w (2017) Review

Imagine a multi media artist who can produce a wide variety of atmospheres and styles in the electronic world. One who has compositions ranging from early Tangerine Dream, Gilli Smyth, ancient tribal, ritualistic meditation, and dance.  Not only the audio but Afasia Yuri, a Japanese woman, also performs spectacular visual video as well as physical arm and hand ballet. She uses a large variety of software and devices to adapt to whatever sound she feels at the moment.  In fact what I found more surprising than her numerous skills, was that she loves to improvise. So you may get a modified version of something in the moment of the gig.

Isgaard – Whiteout (2016) Review

A very ethereal , rich,  powerful and moving release with just the perfect amount of melancholy, by this talented German female vocalist. While some of her early work had a style of Euro tech and dance, on this 2016 recording she sounds like a more gentle Kate Bush or Annie Haslam. The territory the music stands in could be described as the progressive folk rock of bands like Clannad, Capercailie, and Iona, in their more lush ballad and aires. Music to lose yourself in, and lyrics to be intrigued by.
