Here's something you don't hear everyday! A field recording from the outskirts of Bandung in West Java in Indonesia. "REAK, a ritual from an animistic past clinging to an urban present," according to the liner notes. Music propels the participants into a deep trance, exchanging consciousness for an invisible, wild spirit, a transition from human to animal consciousness. This hour-long sonic journey was captured by Les Cartes Postales Sonores, and this bit of audio ephemera from the other side of the globe is shared below, on its own album page, and on Bandcamp. You can listen to the tracks below, or watch this short documentary about it:

Spettro Records: a small place for experimental music. Celebrating 6 years with its third compilation!
It's been 6 years of Spettro Records. 6 years is a long time, if you want it to be. And at this moment in my life it feels as they've been forever, and I certainly won't be getting them back...
Spettro started more as an outlet for what me and friends were doing and recording ( Salomè Lego Playset, STUFA, Achievements, all of them dead projects... ), then grew into something different, a netlabel sui generis, mostly net / sometimes physical label ( of abysmal sales ), but anyway a home to us, and then to so many artists from everywhere in the world, so many I can't thank enough for trusting me and my instincts and who have allowed me to share their wonderful and unique music. It's still a home for me, for my own work ( SLP, which in the years has become more and more secondary), and of those artists which made up most of 2010's first compilation only few remain. So many have passed by, donated their work and passed on to different, probably better, labels. Some have quit music altogether. Some have moved to bigger things and achieved much deserved success, while some have freely and so generously donated a release even if Spettro was much below their label standards. I'm happy to think that Spettro has been The One, out of so many, that they chose, out of their free will, despite all the other, maybe better, choices around. Spettro can't offer much but a tiny and cozy home of uproaring silence, "a small place for experimental music" indeed.
So many artists are still joining, from everywhere in the world, and it's this fluctuating and stateless nature that makes Spettro so special to me and, hopefully, to you. It is an honor to host your music, and seeing younger people writing and joining Spettro gives me hope and pride.
This third installment offers the best that Spettro has and will have to offer in the years to come. Hopefully, other 3 years, and then another compilation will come, new people will join, and new pages will be written and leafed through. Perhaps at least. Fingers crossed. That's why the title, Chapter 4: Makkuraysmi no Jinsei : La stagione della Notte )", starts with "chapter 4", hence a compilation looking ahead, at another chapter. Then the "season of darkness", "la stagione della notte", 2016 and what remains of these last few years: very little, loss, hardship, confusion and despair, a night never ending, nothing but darkness ahead. Hope and despair.
This sampler is also in memory of Kelly Churko, incredible musician, unpredictable improviser, fierce alchemist of sound and composer of truth who passed away too soon. I'd also like to remember Ryo Tsuchiya of Senseless Records and of so many old and new school punk and rock'n'roll bands, whose path I briefly crossed back in 2008 and whose memory I will cherish.?
This album is for those who know Spettro, those who chose Spettro, and those who never heard of it, and maybe never will. This is for me as much as it is for you.

Bottlesmoker is Anggung Kuy Kay and Ryan Nobie Adzanian, an electronic pop duo from Bandung, Indonesia. When their local record labels didn't know how to charecterize their sound, they turned to the web and Creative Commons to share their music under the belief that "if there are 10 people who hate your music, there will be 100 people or more out there who love your music elsewhere." They were right.
Their unique indietronic instrumental sound is created with self-made instruments and circut bending. Their favorite sounds come from toy musical instruments such as glockenspiel, hand bell, melodica, and pretty much any toy that reminds you of toy phones, radio or Nintendo DS. Inspired by musicians such as Lullatone, Dan Deacon, and Tidy Kid, they describe their music as "a happy place where you do your daily activities" such as sleeping, riding, reading and making art.
Their music first came to us as part of an incredible Indonesian CC Music Compilation brought to us by our curator XEROXED. You can download their full album Hypnagogic here on the Free Music Archive, and check out their website and Soundcloud page for more catchy tunes you'll want to take with you everywhere.
