Ela Orleans - Tumult in Clouds
Dirty Beaches collaborator Ela Orleans' newest 2LP on Clan Destine is a joy to behold. This video by movies for ears totally nails the mood for this somber piece. Lyrics based on a poem by W.B. Yeats. Good album, make sure you check it out, if you’re into hauntology + lo-fi pieces.

Library Tapes - Sun Peeking Through
"Once again we find Wenngren behind the piano, playing soft and tranquil chords over the poised and placid strings. And it’s just these two instruments (well, really three – piano, cello, and violin), that conceive short, acoustic, meditative pieces within a single harmonized tonality." Headphone Commute

"Rain Drinkers consists of two long-time Madison folks, Xavier Kraal (aka Troy Schafer in one of his numerous musical disguises) and Joe Taylor musically focuses exclusively on Rain Drinkers and, though he has lived in the Madison area for many years now, none but Kraal have actually met him. " Out on Brave Mysteries
"Though short for an album, Yesodic Helixes feels more like a single 30-minute track, perfectly balanced and paced, and definitely on the level of the project’s best releases so far." Evening of Light

MP3: Nicholas Szczepanik - Again, Falling
Now, here’s a newcomer in the “hauntological” way. Drone/ambient artist Nicholas Szczepanik has a twist in his approach, and turned The Caretaker’s hazy nostalgics for inspiration. Out on WEME Records.
"Like we say, there’s an undeniable conceptual allegiance with The Caretaker’s foisty shellac ambience and introverted loop spirals, but like Indignant Senility’s compelling ‘Consecration Of The Whipstain’, the magic herein lies with Nicholas’ ability to breathe extra life into the samples, foregrounding their rich melodic nuance and tactile textures against a murky, lowlit background which draws the ear through the heavy red curtains to a cavernous and dark hollow behind."
