best of 2013 :: Favorite Albums

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

Here are 26 albums that I totally loved this year. You can listen to one track from each of these albums all in one handy playlist @ https://soundcloud.com/gimmetinnitus/sets/best-releases-2013 (which unfortunately can’t be embedded here), but I’ve included some sort of streaming media and/or mp3 for all the albums below.

mp3 :: Al Lover > Gnomeadze – II (Headway Remix)

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Alex Gundlach a/k/a Al Lover was recently hands the stems to Asheville, NC-based record label, Headway Recordings which is known for its releases of ambient, experimental and uncommon musics. The result is the 13 track compilation, Headway Remixes, a trippy (natch) exploration of the Headway discography.

We are psyched to share one of the tracks from Headway Remixes with you now. Gnomeadze is an improvisational collaboration between Will Isenogle and David Grubba. Together they combine drone, pulsing rhythms and synth bliss. This here is Mr. Lover‘s remix.

Listen.
