I listened to 4 releases on Bandcamp. As Bandcamp is a DIY place where a lot of musicians start out I will feature only music I dug on Bandcamp. I will save my negative feelings for the larger, more established labels and musicians.
@@@ You should check out the second tune on this link. It is from works in progress by Von Nohrfeldt. The music is a hybrid of spacious electronic noise with glitched rhythms. Not really a tempo per se, it unfolds at a walking pace with more sounds introduced as the 9-minute piece rolls on until it’s fairly dense. I’d like to hear more from this musician, there’s nothing to buy, just listening but it’s interesting music.
@@@ You can check out a couple of tunes from Le Super Borgou De Parakou (1970’s Benin) over here. Or below. That is some funky shit, and I would love to check out more, but this record is not up on Spotify and I need to check out the whole record before I plunk down cheddar.
