It’s the latest from ex-Sparklehorse musician Adam Wiltzie, and composer Dustin O’Halloran. A Winged Victory for the Sullen out on Erased tapes is just the soundtrack I need for my lying on my back bed, just before you go nuts think about all those things you didn’t do or can’t do, this album came to put me in the right frame of mind and save my aching ass. AS pure as it gets. Sorry for being so minimalistic lately, but its my medical state right now….so enjoy my posts while I can..

We were thrilled to receive the new Luup album from our dear friend Stelios Romaliadis, an album titled “Meadow Rituals” (out on cd/lp by Experimedia). This is a gorgeous album and contains 8 originals and 8 remixes and a cover. We have chosen the cover, an Aaron Martin track, ‘Spiraling‘. The art is on the house as usual, and this is just taste. There is so much more on this incredible record, and we promise to bring you more from project real real soon.
Jacob Faurholt is a trustworthy dude. We simply trust his taste in music. He introduced us to a friend and collaborator, Soren Brothers, a Canadian musician whom he met a couple of years ago in Montreal, and had moved to Berlin around the same time he did. That’s about the only thing we could tell you about SB, but I guess his music speaks for itself. Listen to ‘Carden Plains‘ by ‘Man meets bear’, SB`s psuedonimon.
The Tel Aviv museum has commissioned experimental music from us few years ago for a multimedia show based around Mahler`s 5th symphony. We have titled this project ‘Mahleria’ and used analogue tape only, pretending we stil live in the pre digital sample heaven era. These are pieces of actual analogue audio tape spliced and then taped back together and we are proud to represent you with a flowing soundscape, 3 pieces we have decided to name Mahleria 1-3. Now availavle on Bandcamp as a digital download..
I have been listening to Evan Abeele`s EP this week, titled Lineage, and if you`d follow them roots, you would probably stumble upon an Eno ambient record. Evan Abeele is the mind behind Memoryhouse, and you could download this 6 track gem for the meager amount of $5. I guess I have abused this record during the last couple of days cause it has enabled me to forget the awefull sights of Japan, and closer, the butchered Fogel family in Itamar.

William Basinski is a classically trained musician who has been making experimental music in NYC for quarter of a century now. Have been listening to his music lately, and while listening, made up this illustration.
We are very proud to present LOFILES VOL 1, a collection of tracks and artists that moved us, and we are honored to include all those talents, some are known and some are less known, for your listening pleasure (even if demanding at times). We have chosen artists and music that challenge your ears and mind, and keep you thinking way after listening, like a great movie, that makes a great impression on you and stays with you for a long time.
