David Whiting Martin Kennedy pulls out a number of tunes from his musical past and constructs a magical journey which travels through timeless lands. It's a trip worth taking. Favorite track: Rust 1.

Dotsun Moon All India Radio brings melodies and not to lovey atmospheric compositions that are relaxing and tender. Fans of Harold Budd, Brian Eno and others will find something in the catalogue to please the ears.

Anthony Childs "Twisted Metal Mind 3" from Desert Tapes 1984-1994 is an early favorite. Love the tremolo'd guitar and the background sound waves. Doesn't at all recall the popular console game Twisted Metal but takes you on pretty much a completely opposite mood trip (that game was fun though!).

about

These are my lo-fi ‘bedroom’ tape recordings from 1984-1994. Most of these songs were originally recorded on cassette tapes or reel to reel tapes. I have restored them where possible but many of the blemishes remain audible.

**I have previously released this collection a few times under different titles and with different artwork. This is the final, definitive version.

about

All India Radio Hobart, Australia

I play ambient spacey rock music sometimes with a trip-hop vibe. Someone important once said "has mashed the ambient-hop signatures of DJ Shadow, Tortoise & Thievery Corporation with the instantly recognizable guitar soundtracking of Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti.. resulting narcotic musical textures are capable of floating listeners to galaxies far, far away." (wired) ... more
