Latest (and among the best) release of Ultralyd, this time they went for a catchier take on their style, and while shorter than their previous albums, it makes for a great album. One of my favorites back in 2010, Inertiadrome has a cheerful tone, with a few hints of krautrock repetitiveness here and there, and definitely a perfect starter for these looking to get into this band.
One of the most acclaimed Circle albums, its hypnotic heavy motorik (already a trademark of their style) truly shines in a prominent way. 6 somewhat long songs that will carry the listener for a mind trip that will seem endless.

Currently sold out in Ektro Records.
Second album of this norwegian trio, formed by one of the members of the jazz fusion band Shining (Even Helte Hermansen) on guitar duties, Rune Nergaard on bass, and Gard Nilssen on drums. They've been described as "Black Sabbath meets Ornette Coleman", and it fits like a glove. Combining the heaviness of doom metal with the complex drumming and jazzy guitar typical of their influences, this album is a perfect display of the unique sound of this band.
A free jazz/improv ensemble gathering three prominent figures of the estonian jazz scene. Performing live in several ocassions in Europe, one of their most remarkable features is Anne-Liis Poll's energetic and highly expressive vocals, which is emphasized by the spastic keyboard and incendiary guitar delivery by Anto Pett and Jaak Sooäär, respectively. The improvisation work in this live album (recorded at the Moers Festival in Germany, back in 2008) is excellent, exposing the expressive power of the genre.
Heavy & Experimental Music in general, Movies, Upcoming Shows, personal stuff, and anything I find interesting will be posted here. Taking requests too (comment box down below).
The name of the blog comes from the Nurse With Wound album's subtitle, Shipwreck Radio Vol 1 and 2 (Seven Sonic Structures of Utvær and Eight Enigmatic Structures of Utvær), it's also a small inhabited Norwegian island located to the northwest of the country, in the municipality of Solund.
In most cases I'll provide the best as possible quality I can get, along with a link to order the album(s). Always remember to support the music you enjoy.
