Parallel Thought :: ConductHer Releases ‘GEMINI SEASON’

a3379330242_10

After cutting her teeth as a member of experimental duo ChurchCough, 2019 seems to have found ConductHer making major strides in her personal journey of creation.  After closing up 2019 with the releases of the solo venture Female Masturbation and the collective project ChurchCough & FriendsConductHer hit the production and writing vibes heavy.  GEMINI SEASON presents everything you want to see in the progression of the artists you dig : intriguing and thought-provoking writing, lush and vivid production, and the confidence that comes with getting multiple projects under your belt.  GEMINI SEASON, in all honesty, is more of a statement than it is an album, and it’s certainly a statement worth taking in and considering.  Check out the project, share it around and drop ConductHer a couple of bucks for the download if you can spare it.

Ambient Waves :: Epop Nivek’s ‘Second Hand Processing’ Is Experimental Bliss

a3209405340_10

While doing my year-end round up, I stumbled across Epop Nivek on Bandcamp.  Being a fan of experimental composers and songs, I put it on the backburner to check out, and as per usual, 2018 got busy to the point that I overlooked it.  Recently, I rediscovered this project, and now it is imperative that I share Second Hand Processing with followers of this blog.  In a world full of same-y sounding synthesizers and drum sounds, it’s interesting to hear someone take field recordings, ambient noise, instrumental and sonic snippets, and turn this vast array into a statement in the form of an album, let alone a song.  If you’re an open-minded fan of music, this one is definitely worth looking in to.
