Latitudes: Kaori Suzuki & Joseph Hammer

Armed with a battery of consumer-grade electronics and an unwholesome passion for sci-fi and AM radio, audio plunderer Joseph Hammer assembles found sound detritus into a palace of labyrinthine referents. Kaori Suzuki rewards endurance with transcendence in a set featuring modified melodica and oscillators. [More]

Latitudes: Lubelski & Bassett | Krausbauer & Suzuki

On the next installment of Latitudes, the duo of Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski combine violin and e-bowed guitar in a thick tranquilizing compound. Like a viscous syrup, the slow-moving drones ooze chromatically across their instruments. John Krausbauer and Kaori Suzuki’s existential and ecstatic free drone emanates an intense ritualistic vibe—the kind of music that would make a suitably ominous soundtrack to one of Hermann Nitsch’s notorious aktions.

Latitudes: Andrew Weathers and Amma Ateria

Utopic folk dreamer Andrew Weathers visits the Bay Area from his hideaway in rural West Texas with a set of guitar-driven ambient folk works that drift seamlessly between rigor and flexibility to deliver a message that’s at turns weary and optimistic. AMMA ATERIA presents a dense sonic menagerie of distant and closely mic’d subjects forming an unsteady equilibrium hovering above a bed of luxuriant drones. [More]

Latitudes: Degradient and Receptacles

What if Captain Beefheart had cut his teeth listening to The Fall instead of Howlin’ Wolf and Bo Diddley? The result might have sounded like Receptacles—a joyfully shambolic deconstructionist collision of rhythms and riffs. Kyle Bruckmann’s DEGRADIENT gleefully collides elements of skronk, fried analog noise and dark prog, adding significant heaviness to his signature polyrhythmic clatter, formal complexity, and black humor.

Latitudes: Tongue Depressor & Matsumoto/Sonnet Duo

The New Haven, CT duo Tongue Depressor perform trance-inducing fiddle music that seethes with beating overtones and a high lonesome sound. The unlikely pairing of lap steel dobro and koto makes up the L.A.-based duo of Caspar Sonnet and Kozue Matsumoto. Together they scrape, bow and pluck their way through an investigation of the versatile sound palette and extended possibilities of their instruments. [More]
