Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is London-based artist Danny Currie's 3rd release of 2017.

Field recordings of his coastal hometown are merged with spectral guitars and washes of electronic noise to create a droning ambient panorama which seems to crest and recede like the Irish Sea heard in those same field recordings.

Released on his own Anschauen Records, Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey follows January's 'Verschollene EP' (Spheredelic Records), and 'Covers 2017' - a Soundcloud release of cover tracks.



Genre : electronic, ambient, drone, guitar, noise, psychedelic

New track HIDE by REIGHNBEAU

Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, REIGHNBEAU is the work of visual and sound artist Bryce Hample. Frequent collaborators include Colleen Johnson (Twig Palace) and Madeline Johnston (Sister Grotto). The act concocts hypnotic tracks that incorporate heavenly, oft-wordless vocal melodies with swelling layers of melodic beauty for a very gripping effect. Middle Boop Mag described the sound as one that "shift and sift like sand between fingers - sinking through with an odd satisfaction and surreal beauty as you interact with thousands of grains of ancient earth and animals, ground into silt after billions of years."

REIGHNBEAU's new EP, Hide, was created alongside Madeline Johnston, who has been a longtime collaborator for several years. In the past two years, Johnston and Hample have performed live and toured together as REIGHNBEAU. Johnson's own project, Sister Grotto, has a new album coming out this year as well (Midwife). Her vocals feature throughout Hide, and the track "I Want Love" specifically is comprised almost entirely of her voice. The duo of REIGHNBEAU will be touring this fall.

As for the EP's self-titled track, Hample explains that - much like most tracks on the release - the song starts with human voice samples. "The title track started with my voice (me recording while improvising in my practice space) and developed fully when Madeline and I started rehearsing live for a tour," Hample elaborates. "The other songs all grew out of sounds from this song. The synths on "Grey" are my voice run through my guitar pedals. The compositions of "I want love" and "I don't want it" started with Madeline's voice."

New track Mysteries of Nature by Mouth Breather

The new track “Mysteries of Nature” speaks for Mouth Breather – politically, socially, passionately, romantically.  A track that, like lighting at a dive bar, illuminates crucial features while still leaving many mysteries to be discovered. Mouth Breather released a new music video to accompany the song on YouTube. 

“Mysteries of Nature” grew out of a funky bass-line I laid down while jamming with some friends last summer. Simple, yet catchy enough that every other part of the song just seemed to naturally fall into place. There wasn’t much planning that went into the video either. The director, William Wilkinson, and I used an old TV zoom lens and a sequin curtain to capture a glossy, zoom-heavy 70s visual accompaniment."

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures.
