Release of the Day
With help from Karaoke Kalk, Mimsy scavenge & mould sonic fragments into a wayward, yet warm & welcoming world outside reality tunnel constraints & away from human folly, but thoughtfully scatter the route with folk, acid pop & kindly vocal snippets to guide you back in case the endless possibilities are too bewildering.

Latest Label Release
The Slow Music Movement is as much about independent artists and underground music as it is about tempo. OK, so the focus is more on kicking back, deep listening and soundtracking lazy, hazy and more contemplative moments on the whole, for which slower music just makes more sense. Over the years though we've spent more time than most on dancefloors and being major fans of movement to music we're still up for shaking it, so don't be surprised if singles and EPs like this pop up every now and then.
A Few Thoughts on a Few Things:
Women in Ambient Music
After asking for suggestions for women ambient music producers in a Facebook group, I decide to write a blog post listing all the (65+) recommendations proferred, and a few thoughts on why ambient music is such a mail dominated space.
It's a new age of New Age
A brief essay on the history of New Age music from its 60's counter cultural roots to the mood playlists of today. I also have a pop at modern living, neo-liberalism & throw in an overly simplistic solution for good measure.
Drifting, Almost Falling Interview
This is the first in a series of interviews with other music reviewers, bloggers and online magazines that I follow with interest, in an effort to help spread awareness of the poor, unpaid/underpaid, overworked music obsessives shining light into the shadows of the music margins and who provide an essential alternative to the mainstream, largely big indie and major label obsessed media. Please say hello to Drifting, Almost Falling and his horizontal blog of delights.
