♫♪  Cruel Diagonals - “Render Arcane”

Spring is breaking, my friends. Despite the warmer, sunnier days, I can still get behind some dark, atmospheric experimental electronics. If you’re reading this far, you are likely in the same boat. Oakland, CA’s Cruel Diagonals (aka Megan Mitchell) unleashes a deep, dark brand of said adventurous sounds. You can dig through her archives and hear one-off tracks, live sets, and mixes that highlight her wide range of noise, classical, drone, and electronic influences (see also her Many Many Women project). The track below, “Render Arcane,” from her soon to be released debut LP, Disambiguation, is perfect for some deep zoning, with light, ethereal vocals wafting around a dynamic rhythm. Keep your eyes peeled for the album, which comes out late spring via Drawing Room Records.
