Lava Lamp Meditations: Teal Clods from Tim's House by Dark Meat

photo found at http://www.orangetwin.com/darkmeat.html; taken by Laura Carter

A languid, irreverent album, Teal Clods from Tim's House balances between psychedelic and psychotic. With lo-fi vocals, tambourines and steady rhythms to keep things marching on, Dark Meat has released a collection of tracks from various points in their past. Now you, too, can enjoy the fruits of their time spent at Tim's house with a lot of free time and a 4-track recorder. Not for the faint of heart, squares, or anyone offended by strong language. 

According to their liner notes, "In terms of our song-oriented material, that's where we were at our freest, weirdest, most acid-fried and experimental. And shakiest and funniest and most fucked-up too. But, hey, that beans-and-rice combo of fearlessly pushing it and pathetically caving-in was always our thing: musically, socially, financially, psychically. You best believe it was by design, too, Jack."

Tune in below or listen to the whole album here:

Nenormalizm's Melodic Mycelium

Straight from the underground (literally, figuratively and musically), this new compilation is a bit of a head-scratcher but definitely intriguing for its topic alone: fungi! Nenormalizm Records has compiled a 21-track long album and released it into the wild: the Fungi Compilation. Each track, by a different artist, is named after something related to mushrooms - from colloquial names like "Destroying Angel" to the mycelium itself (the 'root system' of filaments that transfer nutrients and where mushrooms sprout from). If you like a micro-dose of science with your glitchy electronic tunes, this is the compilation for you! If it's not your thing, there's a veritable smorgasbord of other music to check out in our collection. If you're curious, take a bite out of the sample tracks below:

Captive Portal's playful EP, Toy Sounds Vol. 1

Toy Sounds, Vol. 1 is like espresso for your headphones (or at least a sugar buzz)! This jaunty electronic album will scratch your mid-tempo itch and sports a few crispy samples here and there to liven it up even more. Build-ups, bouncy beats, and bubbly bass bump along while high-end drips and drops keep things moving at a quick pace. This belongs in every video game enthusiast's collection or anyone looking for fast-paced electronic tracks to keep them company at work or at play.

The latest release to FMA from the prolific Chicagoan, Captive Portal, is the 19th album he's added to FMA - we can't wait to hear what he comes up with next!

Listen below:

Jupiter Freak Show

Ladies and gentlemen, dear listeners and lovers of free music, welcome!

Let me present you my new project in progress: "The New Freak Shows" with a first track freely inspired by "American Horror Story: Freak Show".

This first track is called "Jupiter Freak Show" because the show of Elsa Mars (portrayed by the amazing Jessica Lange) is in the city of Jupiter, Florida.

"Jupiter Freak Show" is composed in the style of the music of the opening theme of this tv series.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, don't be scared and please, listen to "Jupiter Freak Show"!

Thank you for listening!

PS: I'm French so I may do some spelling mistakes...

Boot Magna by Lazy Salon

Boot Magna by Lazy Salon

Now available on FMA, the 2018 'Boot Magna' releases by New Jersey's Lazy Salon (aka Sean Byrne).  Boot Magna is a compilation of new works in progress, remixes of existing Lazy Salon tracks, and unreleased elements from the archives.  All instrumental, all psychedelic and all created through a process of merging recent & older elements to create new music.

The 'Sets' version of Boot Magna presents the music as two seamless 20 minute mix sets, while the 'Tracks' version breaks out each of the 10 pieces for ala carte digestion.

Set 1 (or Tracks 1-5) is a dancefloor-friendly sequence of 120bpm songs and remixes.  

Set 2 (or Tracks 6-10) represent the more ambient and spaced-out aspects of the project.
