"David Tagg - Waist Deep Seas of Milk" (review)
New York musician, David Tagg, has seen The Future of Modern Guitar. And 
this sonic seer's astral projections are sumptuously spread across the 
ambient expanses of Waist Deep Seas of Milk, though all trace of twang, 
pluck and strum is dissolved in FX haze and spun out in endless echo

"Favourite Places" (review)
Everyone has a favourite place, whether cosy internal retreat or 
cherished patch of Great Outdoors. Forest, bathtub, museum and alley 
find common cause on this audio-document from Audiobulb, compiling ten 
pieces representing selected artists' Favourite Places. Captured field 
recordings blend with musical treatments to make mementoes enfolding 
inspiring source within inspired composition.

"Hectic Tenuous - Chic Nerve" (review)
Starting with flanged, panned scratching (ala fingernails, not decks), 
this solo CDR from The Caution Curves laptop lady Rebecca Mills, is an 
eleven track melange of textures, echoes, drones, processed field 
recordings and even the occasional bit of singing!
review by Mark Francombe

"La Ciutat Ets Tu - Tomasz Krakowiak" (review)
La Ciutat Et Tu surrounds the listener with evolving percussive 
transformations in timbre. The compositions have a circular unwinding 
quality, never abrasive and utterly hypnotic. Tomasz Krakowiak is a 
Polish-born percussionist now living in Toronto, Canada. Having 
collaborated with the likes of Kaffe Matthews, John Oswald, Phil Minton, 
Otomo Yoshihide, Gert-Jan Prins among others
review by Derek Morton

"Love City by Dsic" (review)
Dsic, also known as Greg Godwin, is a Bristol-based noise artist that 
employs a wide range of influences and sound sources. Love City and the 
miniDsic EP, both released through Lf Records, weave their way through 
noise, drone, glitch, ambient and microsound.

"Nelson Foltz and Tom Lynn - Still Life (series)" (review)
The internally themed Rothko-esque cover art of the Still Life series 
could stand as a semiotic of Nelson Foltz and Tom Lynn’s sound, with its 
slow-shifting tones that spread across a spartan canvas - ostensibly 
static swathes that reveal micro-variativity on deeper insertion.

"Of Memory & Dreams - Bill Thompson" (review)
There is a trajectory that many improvised electro acoustic performances 
reach, which although unique in every given context, often manage to 
take you to a zen like point where you become one with the signal and 
phase in and out of listening to the development of structure or dynamic 
of the work.
review by Roger Mills

"Three Rooms - Steve Peters" (review)
Sound artist Steve Peters' recent CD, Three Rooms documents three of his 
site-specific installations. The three pieces succeed without reference 
to the installations for which the pieces were originally composed, 
capturing the quiet reflection of the original locations.
