250mg, by Paranerd (seed028)

250mg
250mg
by Paranerd

It’s been too long since we’ve had a release here on Seedsound, so it’s with great joy that we bring you Paranerd’s 250mg album. Paranerd has been a favorite musician of mine for several years, and I’ve been following him since his 2004 release Cold Reflect from the One netlabel. 250mg has only recently seen the light of day since it was originally recorded in 2002. Graciously, Paranerd (aka Paul Goguen) sent it my way after I asked if he wouldn’t mind doing a release on Seedsound. He agreed, and now this album has been brought back to life and neatly packaged for your listening enjoyment. To put it simply and without over-genrefying, Paranerd’s music has been referred to as ‘braindance,’ which immediately makes sense upon listening.

The short and neat “Ponkid,” the album’s first track, is quintessentially Paranerd. This soft intro grounds the listener and is immediately recognizable for the way it represents the likes of an Atari or Commodore game sequence. All the songs contain broken-beat rhythm sections comprised of what sound like old Roland beat boxes being used at their best: a bit bent, clipped, and cut up to create all new instrumentation and sounds. The song “Doloop” foreshadows Paranerd’s Cold Reflect while the last track “Clusps2” brings the album to a close with a more experimental and complex melodic treatment also hinting at the future of Paranerd’s music. Overall, 250mg (re)captures an entire era of netaudio many cherish while reminding us that this music is still as fun and relevant as ever. At barely 20 minutes total, you’ll find it a great listen and a bright gem to add to your netlabel collection.

THE FIRE SEASON
by Observation Point

Always a pleasure, Observation Point produces yet another brilliant album of ambiance. From OP’s website:

Recorded in Wales in 2011, the latest collage of atmosphere, tones and space. Inspired by the Philip Connors book ‘Fire Season’, this is a homage to wilderness, solitude and the dark spirits that haunt our forests.

Bumper Beat Suite Sampler EP, by Eric McIntyre (seed025)

BUMPER BEAT SUITE Sampler EP
by Eric McIntyre
seed025

After a hiatus here on Seedsound, Eric (the mind behind Groovescape Recordings) returns with a proper sonic wallop – the Bumper Beat Suite series. This sampler/EP captures the essence of detail and depth that went into the overall album, which is inspired by the concept of short, captivating audio snippets (bumps). From funky, tripped-out, granular stomps to delicate, dubby mellow vibes – this is a great sampling of what we hope is more to come from this talented Colorado artist. Cover art by by Jake Johanson aka madking.

of PULSES AND DRONES
by Observation Point
seed024

Description from the artist’s website: “Space, tones and rhythm.”

– An accurate (albeit humble) summary of Observation Point’s 5-track release, of Pulses and Drones. The perfect getaway, Pulses is an album for thoughtful daydreaming and playful meditation. This is the unmistakable balance of space, tones, and rhythm that makes OP a favorite here at Seedsound.
