Rob Magill
“Talking: 1”

Rob Magill, born Dreamcolour, is set to release a new tape called Dedicated To Those Who Recently Lived. According to Deep Tapes, the cassette is “an homage to friends & artists past, who have left this dimension.” Since I’m unable to form my own thoughts, I’d like to also mention how spot-on Deep Tapes is when describing Magill’s music as “sweaty, emotional folk sounds subconsciously channeling twisted visions of Captain Beefheart, Wildman Larry Fisher and Albert Ayler.” Check out “Talking: 1” and hear for yourself, and then look for the tape February 28 on the deepest of all tape labels.

Lightning Bolt

“I FOUND A RING IN MY EAR”

OH MY GOD. Lightning Bolt just started a bandcamp, and their first upload? A 20-minute unedited, director’s uncut, free-form mindfuck titled “I FOUND A RING IN MY EAR,” recorded straight to a Tascam cassette 4-track (hey, I still have one of those!). Perhaps it’s an answer to The Flaming Lips’ six-hour “I Found A Star on the Ground”? Maybe! In any case, the track is available for free or as a ‘name-your-price’ at bandcamp, but do the right thing and let me tell u how to spend yr money.

I just listened to the track two times in a row, and I’m ready to go right back to sleep. I fully expect to dream about a new Lightning Bolt album. FEATURING RYAN GOSLING. Yummmmmm.

“Take One Two”

The look of this video reminds me of Gowns’ “Fargo.” Seems fitting as a foreword to the friendship-tribute feel of “Take One Two.” Ohhh, I just watched all this video too. It’s sweet. The song is totes sweet, too. My pal Stephen is going to love this song. Are you in PMS mode? Cause this song maaaaaaay break you right now #WARNING. Oooo, and the “Take One Two” single will benefit the Jamie Issacs Foundation, too. So you should probably $crill up on this one. One last thing: “Take One Two” …take 2012?

Pulse Emitter

“Pangaea”

Portland’s finest cosmic synthesizer musician, who is one of the most established contemporary drone/ambient artists with releases stretching back to 2003 (a veritable lifetime) on every decent label from Gneiss Things to RRRecords, has joined the Aguirre Records ranks this year and will release a new conceptual LP called Aeons, a four-track rumination on different eras in time. The label explains that this track, “Pangaea,” is about ancient Earth, while another, “Immortality,” is about a “distant future where consciousness has been uploaded to computers and people live without bodies.” Big thoughts and not too many notes from this one-man pantheon of new age music. While you’re waiting for your pre-order to queue, hark back to a touchstone of his catalog, the Meditative Music series, compliments of Root Strata. Also note the appropriately nebulous artwork (a fingerprint or a galaxy?) from Tranquility Tapes in-house designer Caroline Teagle.

Mirrorring

“Fell Sound”

Liz Harris (Grouper) and Jesy Fortino (Tiny Vipers) have apparently woken up from incredible cat naps just long enough to yawn out some songs together. They call their project Mirrorring, their album Foreign Body, and its first single “Fell Sound” (but what it has to do with this guy and the sounds he makes I really can’t be sure). This is just another in a long line of collaborations Harris has been busy with lately (see also her work with Lawrence English, Ilyas Amhed, and The Bug), and they’re all worth hearing. So Liz, you need to call that Balam Acab dude, because I hear he would also like to make some music with you and I would like to hear that music.

Look for Foreign Body March 19 on Kranky.
