Finding one another in sound: compilations for Palestine

In the face of daily violence and massacres delivered in near real-time to our phones, musical artists are finding ways to find one another and be named. Compilations in solidarity with Palestinians take on a new urgency — as a way to weave threads between people.

Immerse yourself in the raw, vibrating AV world of Temp-Illusion x Amir B Ash

Fling yourself onto a timbral buzz saw, with brutal synthetic surfaces, and then unleash a pounding groove. Temp-Illusion have released a full-length, multi-camera video of their live audiovisual performance Caustic Surfaces with artist Amir B. Ash, and it is punishingly good.

Listen to Gościńska’s full hour of brain-tickling Polish producers, with links

Take your mind, body, and soul on a holiday to a world of sonic invention. I mean, literally Poland in January is not going to be everyone’s #1 holiday destination pick, but Polish music? That’s another story. this full hour from our friend (Kasia) Gościńska represents the bleeding edge of production at its finest, and Bandcamp lovers, oh yes, we have links. it’s IDM, it’s techno, it’s broken bass, it’s electro, it’s leftfield experimental – you’ve seen those dropdowns when submitting music to streaming. It’s just good.
