    Santiago Fradejas – Montages, Volume One

    Santiago Fradejas is an experimental musician based currently in Spain, though he hails from Argentina. He is also a friend whose work I have been honored to champion for several years now, along with the work of his wife, A.M Ferrari Fradejas. In this release, the two pair up with Diego Mamani Di Giuseppe and Coco to make bleak, dystopian guitar and moog-scapes. Considering what a horrible year 2020 was, and what disasters wait for us this year, this may well serve as a perfect soundtrack to the mess awaiting us.

    Daniel Thomas Freeman – The Silence After Life (Original Film Soundtrack)

    Soundtrack music is always welcome in my inbox, especially if it is quiet, brooding and sets a heavy mood for an indie film.  I can’t say I know too much about Daniel Thomas Freeman, but now that we are in contact, I look forward to hearing more albums which blend ambient, experimental and soundtrack music together so seamlessly. If you want to delve further into Daniel’s music, consider checking out his Spotify page.  The music here is less atonal, but a pleasure to hear nonetheless.

    Cernichov – The Mold Legacy

    Today’s choice, Cernichov, bear cover art on their album, The Mold Legacy, which would fool one into thinking that this was some sort of black-metal release.  Far from it.  It’s actually a very well-balance pairing of noise and ambient music.  It’s as if a post-punk band were working with the noise and ambient aesthetic, so this sounds far more musical and stable than many of the amateur bands who sound like they’re simply flipping on the vacuum switch.  Quite nice.
