It is not every day that I am speechless in front of new music. However, the mad geniuses behind the French-based band Suess broke my inner mechanisms. 10 der größten Schlagerhits aller Zeiten is the group’s debut album, standing tall with thirty-four minutes that feels like hours. I don’t know how to describe the sounds found therein, other than they are based off of the Schlager music genre in some way.
This is an unlistenable mess… to most, if not all. However, it did strike me, oddly. I thought it was the “so bad it’s good” … Read more
Data Pagan – Data Pagan
The stylized version of Data Pagan‘s self-titled debut album will probably break this page in many wonderful ways: D̷̖͇͇͔͒̑̌̄A̶͍̗̝͎̮̼̩̰̻̙͓̦̟͋̒̎̂̔͆̄̽̽͒́̌͂̑̔͜Ṭ̴̑̊̒̅̎̔̕͝A̶͕̹̮̫̻̲̯͓̿̏́͐̈́ ̸̟̌́̓̕P̶̢̪̫̬̦̺̪͎͇͕̳̠̳̿̓͛̒̌͒̃̒̑͐̾͌̈̕͘͜ͅA̸̢̡̨̛̛̯̫͔͍̺̮͙͓͂͗͆̋͛̓͘̕ͅĢ̷̢̛̜͇̗̻̼͍͕͇̟̯͒́͆̃́̾͊̑͝ͅA̴̧͖̝̬̻̬͍̣̲̐͗̓̋́̓͊̏̃̅́͗̓͌Ņ̷̢̨̪͕͈̹͍̬͑̃͋͘. Coming from the same master brain as Zombieshark!, Data Pagan takes the glitch aesthetics and artificial aspects of cybergrind to impressive heights. I once said that the album sounds like a less gorey, but still as fantastically contorted, as Mulk, which is high praise. This is quite a fun album!

Cécile Cappozzo Trio – Sub rosa
I’ve mentioned it before, but jazz labels need to become modern and stop being so hostile to their customers. In a practice that harms everyone involved—the customer, the label, and the musicians—it’s impossible to listen to the entirety of Sub rosa, in order to make an informed decision before buying it. That being said, Cécile Cappozzo‘s Trio crafted an astonishing album, here. Comprised of the thirty-seven-minute, four-part monster “Chaos” and the relatively short title track, Sub rosa is an incredible free jazz record. Seldom has a title been so descriptive.
