Recs For Sputnik Pt. 11

The series returns.
1White Denim
Fits


Psychedelic Rock, Garage Rock | More adventurous and ultimately more interesting than White Denim's more recent material, Fits is a fantastic
modern psych album that is far more unpredictable than what many of the band's contemporaries are doing.
2Bardo Pond
Dilate


Psychedelic Rock, Neo-Psychedelia, Noise | Probably the best release I've heard from Bardo Pond, Dilate sees the band shift through numerous styles
and moods from the slow folky Sunrise to the hard rocking heavy psych of LB.
3Christina Vantzou
No.1


Modern Classical, Ambient | Beautiful ethereal soundscapes from one half of the ambient duo The Dead Texan.
4Coldstream
The Asleep


Ambient, Drone | Excellent EP that allows you to drift off into a dream-like place far away from reality.
5Deep Magic
Closed Eyes


Ambient | A rather adventurous album that focusses a lot on the use of field recordings.
6Javier Miranda / Yellow Flesh
Season of Good Rain / 1991


Ambient | As beautiful and evocative as its cover art.
7James Blackshaw
The Glass Bead Game


Folk, American Primitivism | Deeply emotional instrumental folk dominated by Blackshaw's superb 12 string acoustic guitar playing.
8John Martyn
Bless the Weather


Folk, Singer/Songwriter | In my opinion a better album than the highly praised Solid Air. Bless the Weather is more cohesive as an album and more
consistent in quality than its successor.
9Papir
Stundum


Psychedelic | Excellent instrumental psych and probably Papir's best release to date.
10Rahsaan Roland Kirk
Rip, Rig and Panic


Avant-Garde Jazz, Post Bop | Not as adventurous as The Inflated Tear but arguably just as strong. Definitely one Kirk's best.
11Saturnus
Paradise Belongs To You


Death Doom Metal | If it wasn't for the overabundant use of birdsong this would rank among my favourite Death Doom albums. As it is, it's still not far
off.
12Star of Ash
Iter.Viator


Electronic, Ambient, Avant-Garde | Surprisingly cohesive given the mix of styles, Iter.Viator is a fascinating album featuring notable contributions from
Ulver's Garm who's stamp is all over this.
