191

Happy New Year. We're starting things off in 2019 a little differently. I'm hoping to produce 3 or 4 "special" episodes this year that focus on the the works and careers of specific artists that I've found rewarding to follow, often across several projects over the years. First of these is Austrian drummer/percussionist/vibraphonist/electronic artist Martin Brandlmayr. I don't recall if it was his albums with Radian or Autistic Daughters that first caught my attention, but his ability not only to colour with percussion but also to arrange recording of the sound in a very specific and intimate manner continue to capture my attention (and my dollars quite often). I hope you enjoy the overview here... there are many more recordings to explore should you be similarly rapt.

Trapist - The Golden Years (Staubgold)
Radian - Rec.Extern (Thrill Jockey)
Polwechsel - Traces of Wood (hatOLOGY)
Radian/Howe Gelb - Radian versus Howe Gelb (Radian Releases)
Radian - TG11 (Mego Rhiz)
Autistic Daugthers - Jealousy and Diamond (Kranky)
Trapist - Highway My Friend (hatOLOGY)
Martin Siewert / Martin Brandymayr - Too Beautiful to Burn (Erstwhile)
Radian - Chimeric (Thrill Jockey)
