The Fringes - On the Radar - July 5


A Journey of Giraffes - Spool

Release Date: July 9


This upcoming album will be Baltimore-based A Journey of Giraffes‘ fifth full-length album and this one seems to lean on a little bit more weirdness than previous releases. While still being an ambient album, AJOG utilizes some very odd textures and highly processed keys to create odd and interesting spaces and timbres with difficult to discern tempos. Currently available for pre-order on digital and compact disc with two tracks available for listening now.


Pre-order on Bandcamp

Expose Your Eyes & James Worse - Widdern

Release Date: July 5


Crunchy, garbled, and evolving soundscapes split between two long-running tracks. The sounds contained within range from subdued and droning to the sounds of distant explosions and falling whistles. All of this occurring with a fine layer of bit-crushing and surprising stereo depth. No pre-order is currently available but you can follow Steep Gloss on Bandcamp to be alerted when it is available on digital and cassette tape.

Musk Ox - Inheritance

Release Date: July 9


The third release from Canadian progressive chamber music trio Musk Ox is a dark and moody journey into atmospheric strings. The compositions within have a relaxing and introspective quality, one that is ever so slightly unsettling but won’t allow you to turn away. The inclusion of a classical guitar alongside the expected cello and violin gives the pIckes quality that counterbalances the swell of the strings beautifully. Currently available for pre-order on digital, vinyl, and compact disc with two tracks available for listening now.

Carnivorous Plants & Daniel J. Gregory - FSA Skies Above

Release Date: July 9


This upcoming album is a surprisingly soft trek through ambient sounds and subtle noises. While primarily ambient, these two artists skillfully and strategically introduce the harsher side of the album intermittently. The use of guitars and pads throughout, along with the use and manipulation of wild recordings that range from birds to soft static creates a wonderfully relaxing experience that utilizes harshness to remind you that you are to be listening closer. No pre-order is currently available but you can follow Steep Gloss on Bandcamp to be alerted when it is available on digital and cassette.

Monsieur Pompier’s Traveling Freakshow - Teatime Terrors

Release Date: July 9


This album will mark the first full-length album from Dublin-based Monsieur Pompier’s Traveling Freakshow on Cleopatra Records. Lyrics about earwax, cat guts, and a guy who swallows hedgehogs whole are just a few of the subjects covered over the backdrop of a weird punk-ish sound with the addition of strange carnival sounds and some weird use of sampling. One can only imagine what a live show would be like. Currently available for pre-order on digital and vinyl with all tracks available for listening.
