Metaphysical Circuits, ‘400/100’ Metaphysical Circuits, 6.12.2015 Earlier this spring, Copenhagen-based Metaphysical Circuits crowdfunded a massive label compilation, 400/100, so named to mark the 400th release that proprietor Christian Kann has worked on, and the 100th on tape.

Week in Review #77 “Had to sweat it out a bit in the sauna-like studio to bring you this episode of the podcast. It felt sort of cleansing though to work through these conditions in order to share a large batch of amazing music that has been occupying every spare minute and every playback device I’ve had access... 

Week in Review #65

April 25, 2015

Week in Review #65 Though the official announcement is now nearly a week out of date, I can’t help but direct attention to Baro Records’ wonderful cassette reissue of Julian Lynch’s 2009 Orange You Glad LP for Olde English Spelling Bee.

Week in Review #56 The new FFFoxy Podcast will be delayed until later today since the stalwart David Perron had to postpone recording until this morning — we’ll point you to the new installment ASAP.

May 31, 2014

Week in Review #21 I wanted to open this week’s review with something a bit more general, the transcript of San Francisco based technologist and artist Maciej Cegłowski’s closing speech at this year’s Beyond Tellerrand web-design conference in Düsseldorf, Germany. Cegłowski looks at the history... 

Side-by-Side: Metaphysical Circuits’ May Batch

May 29, 2014

Side-by-Side: Metaphysical Circuits’ May Batch Jeffrey Scott Mathews’ Roman Ego leads off the new Metaphysical Circuits triptych with Three Pillars Forming, an all-too-brief set of densely elegiac synth suites that haunt the psyche well after the tape’s end. Broken out into a series of nine miniatures of grim but bright kosmische musik,... 

Week in Review #17

May 3, 2014

Week in Review #17 This week was marred right off the bat by the tragic death of DJ Rashad and there’s little comfort to his fans from the knowledge that his legacy will surely grow, proportionate to the misfortune of his unknown condition culminating so suddenly. Juke and footwork have never been so much a part...
