What’s that? You want to know what’s been going in our ears this week, reverberating our cochleas and sending broader vibrations throughout our bodies and by extension our audio-addled souls? That’s a coincidence: here’s this week’s Editor’s Choice.~ Photo: Michael Aniser

Men in Burka – Bismillah
I just can’t get enough of Kamran “the Ramadan-Dadaist from Denver” Khan’s “Ethno-Experimental” tracks. His album War/Magic was released earlier this month on Tundra Dubs. Check it out on Bandcamp.
Triad God – I Never Told You
Vinh Ngan aka Triad God just released his album ‘NXB’ on Hippos In Tanks and delivers a suprisingly fresh take on Hip-Hop.

The Cheapers – The Black Bell
My former colleague Nico is in a group. Well, he’s not a rock star or whatever, but he and his buddy Rüde Hagelstein made a quite rock-star-style-career in techno during the past years as The Cheapers. They’ve just release a new 12” only single on Bar25 records, and this is a heavy, dark piece of music. “The Black Bell”, coming straight from hell!

Throwing Snow – Aspera
A taster of the forthcoming EP, coming in December on Ross Tones’ own label Snowfall. One of the few things that I’ve been able to listen to as I wrestle a particularly vile cold, the dampened pads and muted melodies provide an apt tonic against the Lemsip numbness and layers of abject self pity.
