New Flim EP(s) on Bandcamp! My favorite is probably Dear Ghost; very minimal emotional yet serene, more on the experimental melodic side of things, acoustic sounding electronics (although I honestly couldn't tell you where these sound are coming from) drifting in and out of consciousness, like your home made modem is picking up signals from another dimension... sort of like Nuno Canavaro jamming with Microstoria and drumless French Paddelboat. Name your own price and Recommended.
Minimal remix of Brooklyn's Conveyor from their new album (Gold Robot Records). Free Download!
Excellent write up on Extreme Animals for Vice. I know, i know, why is Vice writing anything thoughtful, meaningful and sincere on art or music? Well, Sean Patrick Carney wrote it, and he's a good writer and evidently he's not completely jaded, so that might have something to do with it.
BTW, I found the las couple Extreme Animals DVD and posted them for sale, just in case.

What Is This Place? is a highly listenable experimental album, painted with broad strokes of tone and percolating with percussive detailed bits, plucked strings, found sound, and moody melodics that take you on a journey, an abstracted adventure in sound.
Set In Sand creates emotional and rambunctious organic electronic music, often sourcing from a variety of musical and real life sounds; saw blades and vacuum tubes, guitars as percussion, deconstructed music boxes, cello, xylophone, chopsticks on snare, a marching band, or a swarm of bees. The sounds are then loosely sculpted into a hybridization of melodic sound collage and dreamy deep-listening soundscapes. A co-release with Abandon Building.
New video for Set In Sand's "Cherish The Moments" from the What Is This Place? album, coming May 15!
