Dark Territory is a collection of new music from the creative electronic-inspired ensemble High Risk. Following the success of the group’s eponymous release in 2015, this new album continues to explore the intersection of creative improvisation and modern electronic music production to create a unique sound that Pitchfork described as, “simultaneously chill and surprising, it’s the sound of a group discovering a valid language, and then proceeding to push the limits of that new aesthetic”.

Hammock returns with Everything and Nothing, the Nashville duos first full-length album since 2013s critically-acclaimed Oblivion Hymns. With Everything and Nothing, Hammock has entered oblivion a place of personal struggle, doubt, and change and come out the other side; hopeful. The experience is meticulously woven into each song, shared with listeners through intricate melodies, compelling beats, and solemn vocals. In some ways, Everything and Nothing is the spiritual successor to the bands 2006 breakout album Raising Your Voice… Trying to Stop an Echo. It recalls the same mastery of sound and storytelling, destined to spark every listeners imagination.

“Together, As One” is the third album as a leader from British award-winning trumpet player, composer and band-leader Laura Jurd and her debut with newly named band Dinosaur. Featuring Laura’s regular collaborators, friends and creative cohorts Elliot Galvin, Conor Chaplin and Corrie Dick, “Together, As One” is a coherently powerful and bold album that not only confirms her promise as one of the most important young musicians to emerge from the UK jazz scene in recent years but is also a statement that will launch her music into the international jazz world stratosphere.

A modern jazz quartet that masterfully balances strong groove, expressive sophistication, and incredibly rich dynamics. Reminiscent of quality ECM sounding records this music is emotionally charged with delicate musical space and touch.

“I was five years old in 1982. I remember sitting on thick brown carpet, plugging in the joystick, and playing Yars Revenge on the Atari 2600. The music consisted of a single, oscilating drone. Thirty years later technology has granted us the wish of near-infinite possibilities: it’s not uncommon for some games to feature vocal choirs and symphony orchestras. Of course, as Orson Welles famously remarked, “The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.”

I entered the world of MONACO when I caught wind that creator Andy Schatz was on the hunt for licensable solo piano music in the vein of old ragtime-infused silent films. We struck up a conversation and I realized that I simply needed to write this score. When would I *EVER* be exploring that genre of music in a videogame again???

This album connects with me from any number of angles. There’s the project theme: Trombonist Andy Clausen put together the multi-media project Shutter as a way to present the imagery of his travels from 2012 through 2013. How he captures those images is four-fold. First, he views them personally. This is something we, as listeners, can only experience indirectly through later stages of the process. Second, he takes a photo of the scene with an old-school a 1970s Nikkormat FT 35mm camera.
