The German Ocean – The German Ocean CD
“Once upon a time, we looked outward”…. The German Ocean formed in late 2020, a partnership between Darren j Holloway of SINNEN and Gavin Martin. It very quickly became apparent that the sounds and shapes coming out of this pairing were a significant departure from those of the SINNEN collective, harking back to Darren’s days as producer of filmic ambient mini-scores but with a fresh, harsher, darker edge. There was something timeless in the mix, something oceanic in the sound, moments and phases reminding the listener of a Great War era submarine chugging ghost-like just below periscope depth. The eight songs on this eponymous debut formed, floated, swam and dived through the cold waters of The North Lands, perhaps hinting at a reminder that things were not always so introspective as they seem now, and that maybe our better futures lie somewhere beyond renamed borders and sea masses. Welcome (back) to The German Ocean.SKU: SBCA078
Greg Nieuwsma – In C: Flea Market CD
Flea markets are magical places. Places where you can watch inanimate reincarnation in action. Objects deemed as useless – discarded, on their way to landfills or incinerators – are given an opportunity to start anew. Terry Riley’s “In C” is a magical piece of music. It is a piece of music with no single definitive version – on the contrary, the rich variety of interpretations echo the smorgasbord of wares on display at the flea market. It is our hope that this broken-down, wabi-sabi laden take on “In C” will be seen as a worthwhile addition to the collection of versions of Terry Riley’s wonderful composition; and that someone may come across it and pick it up with the same curiosity with which they would pick up an exotic trinket at a flea market, examine it closely and, thinking they have found a treasure, say to themselves “Yes!”SKU: SBCA090
Corticem – Planetarium CD
Corticem are an experimental rock trio based in Krakow, Poland formed by former members of Sawak. After losing their rehearsal/recording space, the trio quickly took action and recorded sessions to tape using whatever they could hastily pack up around them: a theremin-like feedback loop from a cigarette pack-sized amp held up to the guitar pickup, multi-tracked bowed cymbals, a single mic on a drum kit running through a broken amp, reversed drums, the walls, anything. The resulting work is a modern kosmische classic that sounds as if it were from another planet.SKU: SBCA063
