With its 21’27” length this is not a full Monty Adkins album, but we will not complain about that – especially since Atkins and Crónica offer this single track EP as a free download (as they call it themselves, but I prefer Name Your Price and suggest to leave a donation to the artist and […]

Simon Cummings’s “間 (ma)” reviewed by Blow Up

Il titolo viene da una parola giapponese (ma) che ha a che fare con parti e intervalli. Cummings in un periodo nero della sua vita ne approfitta per lasciar andare l’immaginazione tra forma e non-forma a partire da alcune registrazioni durante il culto in una chiesa anglicana.
