The Gate (featuring Tim Dahl and Nate Wooley) “Stench” LP

The Gate is Dan Peck, Tom Blancarte and Brian Osborne. Formed in 2008, and originally named Dan Peck Trio, the band has developed an aesthetic that is unique and uncompromising. Dividing time between improvisation and Dan’s compositions, the music ranges from bleak landscapes of near-­silence to massive, horrifying sound sculptures. The Gate seeks to break down and confuse the conventional roles of a horn-bass-­drums ensemble, revealing the most raw and elemental aspects of organized sound.

Hyena “Outside, The Great Drought” CD

Smeraldina-Rima 18
NY-based multi-instrumentalist Colby Nathan delivers a debut that contains a jumpy and highly neurotic form of outsiderpop combining bebopdrenched rants and surrealistic torchsongs with lush arrangements that constantly test the limits of self-control and good reason. “Outside, The Great Drought” offers baroque exuberance and teenage angst through sixties inspired craftsmanship that keeps spiraling out of this worldly realm. Think Jonathan Richman, Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks.

JOZEF VAN WISSEM ‘A Priori’ CD

“Once some music dropped through my letter-box; let’s summon their sounds into our world now, and deliver their names as Roses or Stations. The picture they imagined was both clear and cryptic: the certainties of the 17th century holding tight the ugly beauty that we now see scattered around us. I loved these CDs by Jozef van Wissem, A Rose by any other Name and Stations of the Cross. And then I received a new album, A Priori, and I immediately played it and heard its stark and repetitive intensity, its stately and glacial march. There is nothing quite like it that I have heard before—it is timeless, breathing deeply and exhaling showers of snow, endless circles, mirrors, spirals, the sea. When Jozef plays the lute, he pours out endless space. What can I say but let the rain come, close your eyes and watch the stars fall and rise and fall again.”
