This week I'd like to feature the most recent release from Tangram (composer Peter Fabok from Budapest, Hungary) titled Waning Gibbous. It may be obvious, but the moniker Tangram comes from the popular Tangerine Dream album of the same name. Also, like Tangram's music sounds much like early '80s-era Tangerine Dream, featuring spacey echoing synth lines often backed by a propulsive percussive electronic beat, though he has also made music similar to Brian Eno's ambient works (Waning Gibbous is of the former sort). Basically, if you're a fan of '80s-era Tangerine Dream or well-polished Berlin School type music, then you'll have no problem enjoying Waning Gibbous. Enjoy!

Fraciscus Rebro, under the pseudonym Fennel, is a minimalist composer who works with piano, electronics, and field recordings. This album, Resuming the Trail, is mainly field recordings taken from various places (I'm not sure where, but I'm assuming cities as well as local parks) which are intermittently narrated by a lonely, moody piano. Most of this album reminds me of walking on an abandoned earth, where everything is familiar and homey but unsettlling in its stark emptiness. But, there are human voices present in some portions of Resuming the Trail, even if they have no true context within the sound of the music besides just being recorded organisms caught by chance. All of the elements present on this album make me think of the way legitimately depressed people perceive the world: there is life everywhere and everything is active as always, but everything somehow feels empty or hollow. The lonely, sad, narrative piano acts as the only intermittent glimpse of actual or imagined beauty that compels us to continue, day after day, in what seems to be utter pointlessness.




Also, I'd like to mention that Vompatti has recently released a new recording titled Golden Cliffs Overhang Murmuring Seas, which I along with many others believe is his best work yet. It can be found right here.

I hope you enjoy the music.
