Ears Have Ears fill-in 27.07.17 (12:51 am)

I had the privilege of filling in for the awesome Brooke Olsen and Scarlett di Maio on Ears Have Ears tonight. Not podcast, but you can stream it on demand here.

T. Morimoto – Ascent [SoundCloud]
Sydney producer Tom Smith has been releasing bent hip-hop and other sample-based music for over a decade as Cleptoclectics, Thomas William and now T.Morimoto. Broken club forms and ambient loops.

Enderie – Stopped Memory [Room40]
Enderie is Brisbane native, now based in Sydney, Andrew McLellan. He’s played in Cured Pink and various other bands, and this solo moniker is using primitive loops and techno cut-ups as a way of exploring the industrial reality of city living. Hi-tech meets lo-tech, taking us into the uncanny…

Fabulous Diamonds – John Song [Chapter Music]
Jarrod Zlatic and Nisa Venerosa made up Melbourne duo Fabulous Diamonds, who made a number of well-regarded experimental pop albums before breaking up. Nisa went on to form Bushwalking with Sydney’s Ela Stiles and Karl Scullin of Kes Band.

Anton Kubikov – Mintnight [Kompakt]
This is the first solo album from Russian producer Anton Kubikov, released on the venerable Kompakt label. He’s best known as one half of SCSI-9, and has an expert ear for ambience.

waterhouse – echoes [SISTER]
Melbourne’s jade foster is no stranger to this show, having contributed a soundtrack to Ears Have Ears in the past. Her track here is from a compilation debuting the SISTER collective. Made of up women and gender non-conforming producers, both professional and enthusiast, it aims to make the music industry a more equal place.

Wolf Eyes – Undertow [Lower Floor Music]
Literally the 100th release from the long-lived noise act Wolf Eyes, now describing their music as “trip metal”. Primitive electronic pulsations and spoken word.

Saira Raza – Ama [SISTER]
Atlanta, Georgia-based artist Saira Raza uses many instruments including vibraphone, guitar, bass dilruba, found sounds, synths and cello in her beautiful ambient music.
This is the second cut tonight from the SISTER Volume One compilation.

Anna Caragnano & Donato Dozzy – Parola [Spectrum Spools]
The album Sintetizzatrice sees the vocals of Rome-based singer Anna Caragnano layered and processed by venerable Italian techno producer Donato Dozzy.

Lifewater Oasis – Facts [Healthy Tapes]
Debut album released on Healthy Tapes from Melbourne duo Faith Bolton and Simon Gardam, making ambient electronic sounds. Look forward to a soundtrack from Lifewater Oasis on Ears Have Ears next week!

phile – Deadzone [Deep Seeded Records]
First track available from the new self-titled album from Sydney duo of Hannah Lockwood and Gareth Psaltis. Available now when you pre-order the album from Bandcamp. Industrial ambient and techno sounds, beautifully constructed.

Siavash Amini – The Dust We Breathe [Hallow Ground]
Epic album on Hallow Ground from Iranian composer Siavash Amini, combining his classical composition chops with drone and experimental electronics. Features two other Persian experimental musicians, Nima Aghiani on violin (to be heard on our next track in his duo 9T Antiope) and Pouya Pour-Amin on electric double bass.

9T Antiope – Prophase [Eilean Records]
Iranian duo 9T Antiope are made up of Nima Aghiani on violin & electronics, and Sara Bigdeli Shamloo on vocals. The experimental nature of the drones, field recordings and electronic noises are juxtaposed with melodic and emotive vocals.

Ekin Fil – Like A Child [The Helen Scarsdale Agency]
Turkish singer & drone-pop expert Ekin Üzeltüzenci has releases on various respected labels like Root Strata, Students Of Decay, and has now released a second album on The Helen Scarsdale Agency. Muted piano, bubbling electronic keyboards, soft vocals and a sense of something under the surface…

Motion Sickness of Time Travel – Let-down [Adversary Electronics/MSOTT Bandcamp]
Georgia, US-based musician Rachel Evans has been releasing cassettes and other limited editions in vast quantities since 2009. Most of it is available from her Bandcamp – arcane New Age-influenced synth explorations and weird-folk, sometimes with vocals. Highly atmospheric and patient stuff. She’s also one half of Quiet Evenings with her husband Grant Evans.

Stellfox – Hatiku Hitam [Tandem Tapes]
20th release for the Indonesian-based cassette label Tandem Tapes run by ex-pat Aussie Morgan McKellar, a 50 track digital compilation full of many gems, raising money for the Australian youth mental health organisation Headspace.
Stellfox is an American musician based in Jogjakarta, Indonesia. You can hear the influence of Javanese gamelan along with the droney industrial electronics.

Adderall Canyonly – Sinner Get Thee Ready [Tandem Tapes]
Mysterious internet noise/electronic artist with a few releases out on cassette labels and the like. This one’s from a split cassette on Tandem Tapes.

Shoeb Ahmad – “unwoven – mp version” [Shoeb Ahmad Bandcamp]
First single from Canberran musician Shoeb Ahmad’s album quiver, set for release early next year, sees them exploring questions of gender and identity. The single also features remixes of album tracks we haven’t heard yet, including the electronically harmonised vocals, drones and drum machines of MP, aka Mino Peric of Melbourne band No Sister.

Dedekind Cut – The Expanding Domain [Dedekind Cut Bandcamp/Hallow Ground]
Having started his career producing for Joey Bada$$ and producing various hip-hop mixtapes as Lee Bannon, Fred Welton Warmsley III then explored his love of drum’n’bass and experimental electronica as well as ambient, and has now settled on Dedekind Cut as the moniker for all his music. He’s been gravitating towards the noisier end of the spectrum, and both Prurient and Zach Hill contribute percussion to this track (Elysia Crampton appears elsewhere on the EP).
