releasing drone and ambient music since almost forty years, mathias has developed his very distinctive style. long lasting tracks which hum themselves into the listener's subconsciousness, mesmerising angelic overtones mixed with haunting deep drones to forget present space and time. for the cosmic winnetou release, his first one on cassette since the late nineties, mathias encapsuled the essences of his musical magic into pieces with running time between two and fifteen minutes. surprisingly those short tracks makes you even more forget where and who you are and transform your inner selve into some kind of zen saint mode. how he does this? don't know, but make sure to regard the advice of the master himself:
"I’m sure you’ll find answers not in words, but in deep listening with your heart!"

daniel james leznoff is not from this world. to releasetwenty albums in one year is some kind of extraterrestrial achievment. even more so because all of his albums reach an extra high level of quality. early 80s synth lines dancing like crazy with each other, unforgettable melodies over and over on each and every track, moody short pieces crafted withadorable inspiration. the cosmic winnetou release is of course not an exception, even more so it seems that with every release daniel is able to increase his ability to blow us away, out of thisworld, into his space.
be part of this ongoing musical wonder and buy this tape!
dayin letting go of people c34 "letting go of people is an album about humans you wish you never met. their voices are echoing inside, answering words you wish you never had to say. these thirty minutes, sliced into seven pieces are a reminder of not only all wrong choices you have ever made, but also of those mistakes, which are yet to follow. dayin is harsh drone and regret, but mostly a relief." heavenly dronesto pacify your misanthropic feelings. these days everybody's need.

it has never worked: the ghostly loop has always appealed to me so I just kept it in hopes one day it would become something. it has, now. the title is just one of those lines one may say a lot in their lifetimes, no matter how hard they’ve tried, “it has never worked”. if they're running, there's a runaway bus coming: cosmic spasm and a floating tune. it’s all about the atmos. when i fully understood why some people wanna die: a piece of a song I composed when I was in my first band. It just sounded so good when it was pitched down, I had to create something with it.
a heart transplanted twice: did you know a transplanted heart can be transplanted again? I didn’t! And, yes, it can, according to what I learned from watching a very popular soap in brazil many months ago.
i say i am never late but we both know sometimes i am: I grew older being very proud of the fact I was always a very punctual person and then one day I realized I was no more and that made me sad, the feeling of losing everything, even self-control
the next dying generation: or how to use sounds you rip off a song you absolutely love by a band very few know of.
the days off afternoon sleep i truly do hate: the saturday afternoon naps I absolutely love. prematurely aging bones: months ago I found out I’ve got prematurely aging bones and have been taking new pills, more pills (…) ever since. feel it closing in: shortly before my old band died, a guy who could play the accordion came and joined us. we jammed, it was beautiful and it went nowhere. I’ve never met him again. he’d emailed me a file, some seconds of him playing that accordion. one day I found that file and… a piece of it has become “feel it…”. so simple, so beautiful, so touching. gimu's words about each single track of this album.
each single track of this album makes you feel the bittersweet melancholy of this tired planet spinning in the void. go and buy this tape, it'll will make you feel at home, somehow.

gosh. i know this house is haunted. chilling winds out of the nowhere, though i'm sure i've closed the window. my seventh sense tells me there is somebody or something behind the next corner. my cat behaves strange. jumping on my lap, starring into the nowhere.
drones and sounds like out of a different world. so hauntingly beautiful you will never forget.
