MAJEURE – Timespan (temporary residence) – One half of ZOMBI, (the drummer), releases an epic three-song “collaboration of live and electronic sounds” in which “each song uses layers of analogue synthesizers to masterfully craft extended compositions that virtually stop time before speeding it up, culminating in countless moments of genuine majesty”. In other words, it sounds like ZOMBI.
OSSO – Runrabbitrun (asthmatic kitty) – I forgot to post this, which I got a couple weeks ago. Although I am not a fan of Sufjan Stevens, I did enjoy Runrabbitrun, which is a collection of re-assembled instrumental tracks from the Sufjan Stevens’ album Enjoy Your Rabbit. Released October 6th. “Enjoy Your Rabbit” mp3 via Asthmatic Kitty.
SUFJAN STEVENS – The BQE (asthmatic kitty) – The BQE is a bold, unexpected addition to Sufjan Stevens’ catalog. Packaged as a CD/DVD or LP, The BQE is an instrumental score to the film of the same name. Both film and album composed by Sufjan Stevens. Here is a video and mp3 I linked to the other day. Released October 20th. Comes with a stereoscopic View-Master reel too.
