"Highs from Low Point" (feature)
In this post-everything age, its hard to hear anything shatteringly
new in the experimental ambient universe, even at the most Out-there
reaches of the dronosphere. Yet there's still much to be savoured in
the glut of well wrought music in this vein, among which may be
numbered recent highs from Nottingham's Low Point.

"Yapang Marruma Soundscape - Rod Smith" (feature)
On February 12th 2008 the Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd made an
apology to the 'Indigenous peoples of this land, the oldest continuing
cultures in human history' for the 'mistreatment of those who were
Stolen Generations [...] for the laws and policies of successive
parliaments and governments that have inflicted profound grief,
suffering and loss [...] 'for the indignity and degradation thus
inflicted on a proud people and a proud culture. (excerpt).

"Echoes of Syros by Dempster, Heasley & Rieman" (review)
Stuart Dempster and Tom Heasley have successfully expanded the
capabilities of low brass instruments, once relegated to the back of
the band. Together with keyboard player Erik Glick Rieman, they
present a series of improvisations that exceed the boundaries of their
previous work and highlight potential future explorations.

"Peaceful Protest - Sade Sade" (review)
D Yellow Swans called it quits April 2008. In their 9 years
together, this psych/noise duo consisting of Pete Swanson and Gabriel
Mindle Saloman (GMS) recorded over 50 releases, toured extensively
around the World, and co-ran the Collective JYRK label/art collective.
Gabriel ended up moving to Vancouver, BC to start a new label called
Diadem Discogs with his wife and music collaborator Aja Rose.

"The sincerest form of derivation" (review)
Remora's Derivative is a guitar ambient album with a more aggressive
edge than other drone guitar groups like Stars of the Lid or Mirror,
retaining enough skronk to remove any artificial polish and give the
work the immediacy of a laid-back live performance in his living room,
and enough melodicism to prevent the work from becoming a noise fest.
