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.

Reid Karris is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, sound enthusiast and improviser hailing from Chicago, Illinois trying very hard to get all the music stuck in his head out for all the world to hear. After spending years as an odd guitarist trying to fit in with the world of rock music, Reid shifted his focus towards improvisation, noise, drone and avant-garde. His primary instruments for doing so are prepared guitar and drum kit sent through electronics. With prepared guitars, he performs solo as well as in various groups including Set Self on Fire, HKM Guitar Trio, The Chicago Scratch Orchesta and Coffin Screws; the later consisting of himself on prepared guitars along with a revolving rhythm section usually consisting of a drummer and bassist who do not regularly play together. He also plays drums in the experimental duo Step Slow and works with an array of found metal percussion. In studio settings, he either records albums of improvised music employing himself on prepared guitars or conceptual abstract compositions. He has released music on Pan Y Rosas Discos, Lungbasket Recordings and Lurker Bias.

Sundaug is the pseudonym for Philadelphia-based composer and performer Steve Bonitatibus.. Steve became interested in percussive fingerstyle guitar early on in his playing days and even studied guitar performance during his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia. While his first two albums — Empyrean Fantasy (2013) and Nocturnality (2015) — featured music that could be likened to contemporary guitarists such as Andy McKee and Kaki King, his latest effort marks a shift towards post-rock.
"To Bloom, To Wither" is Sundaug's third, full-length album. Unlike his previous two works, which featured primarily solo acoustic numbers, this album embraces a heavier, post-rock sound. Using a wide array of eclectic instrumental textures, To Bloom, To Wither attempts to blend the soothing timbres of modern acoustica with the more blaring sounds of rock music. The album was officially released on February 24th, 2017, and is available in music stores and across streaming platforms.
