So here’s a few selections of great new releases you can pick up today while Bandcamp waives its fees and lets the artists and labels keep each cent that they earn.

For a truly one of a kind musical experience, check out the haunting, molten avant-garde sonic typhoon of Kid Millions and Sarah Bernstein’s Forest Park Live. Available through Island House Recordings, this tape captures the adventurous duo conjuring strange moods and eerie atmospheres from New York’s Forest Park Bandshell in 2021. The Oneida drummer attacks his kit with a feverish jazz intensity while Bernstein, a renowned NYC experimental composer and performer, stuns with her primal vocalizations, as she coaxes animalistic shrieks and moans from her reverb-heavy violin. If Yoko Ono, Milford ..read more

Shades of the sensual and the unreal sway and slink throughout the latest single by experimental pedal steel exotica artist, The Far Sound.

You hear all of these influences speaking at an equally loud volume all across this self-titled LP. This is especially true with the record’s new single, the hypnotic “Finding The Temple.” Check it out: The track features a primordial thumping drum beat, waltzing banjo and pedal steel and ..read more

Dorothy Moskowitz, of the pioneering ’60’s experimental rock group, The United States of America, is still pushing boundaries and defining what it is to be an “experimental artist.” Available today from our friends at Tompkins Square Records, Under an Endless Sky is a wholly unique beast. The record finds the legendary Moskowitz combining her creative forces with the equally adventurous electronic composer Francesco Paolo Paladino and composer and writer Luca Chino Ferrari.

If you ever wanted to imagine what it would sound like to put Neil Young in a space rock guitar duo, then Figure/Ground is the record for you. Released in June on Ramble Records, Henry Kaiser and Anthony Pirog’s guitar duo album is a conceptual auditory art piece. Based upon the perceptual grouping of Figure/ground organization, of which, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is the perception “of images by the distinction of objects from a background from which they appear to stand out, especially in contexts where this distinction is ambiguous.” You know, this lady/these ladies.

Grassy Sound – The Sounds Of​.​.​.

Finally, a band that recognizes and appreciates the weird and enigmatic world of exotica records. Grassy Sound is a project lead by Nick Millevoi and Ron Stabinksy of the Meat Puppets that resuscitates life back into the LPs you’ll find in the dollar section of your local record store. Elements of cheap-o surf rock, budget bin ’60s exotica and jazzy mid-century film scores are all fused together and given a post-rock makeover. If you could imagine Dick Dale tunes or laidback Bernard Hermann soundtracks being infected by red-hot shredding and sketchy carnival Hammond C-3 organ work, then y ..read more

You can knock out your drone, ambient and fingerstyle guitar fixes all in one go with Eric Arn’s Misuse live mix. Available through the great Ramble Records, this album is a collage of Arn performing across Europe between 2014 and 2015. Throughout the single 50 minute track, you’ll hear the former Crystalized Movements member slide from acoustic fingerpicking abstractions to shrieking noise and cosmic storms of murky electric guitar meditations. This is the kind of album you’ll want to listen to to escape from the world around you. Just turn off your lights, lay back on the couch and allow you ..read more
