Eisuke Yanagisawa - Path of the Wind
The Aeolian harp is a stringed instrument - usually hand crafted - which produces a range of harmonic tones when wind passes across it. It has a long history - imbued with romanticism and mysticism - stretching back to antiquity, from where it derives its name from Aeolus, the Greek God of the wind. For Path of the Wind - Eisuke Yanagisawa's third record for Gruenrekorder - the Japanese film maker and field recordist constructed his own Aeolian harp, mounting two microphones into its sounding board. He then recorded the tones produced at a variety of locations across Japan.


Ecco/The Forbidden - Ecco/The Forbidden(Blu Ray)
Here’s as a joint venture between Severin Films & Something Weird- a doubled headed  region free Blu Ray release bringing together two different sides of the infamous Mondo genre. We have the slightly more classy & varied Ecco, and the more flesh bound & decidedly scuzzy The Forbidden. Both films are presented fairly untouched & pock-marked in their scans, with a few worthy extras.
The Possessed - The Possessed(Blu Ray)
From the mid-1960s The Possessed is a subtle creepy, and at times grimly noir infused Italian mystery- that’s knee deep in atmosphere & dread. On Arrow Video- both in the UK & US- here we have a recent Blu Ray reissue of the film- offering up a new bleakly monochrome print of the film, as well as a nice selection of extras.
Steve Roach - Long Thoughts
As it’s title might suggest here’s a lengthy slice of slowly swirling and gently spiralling deep ambience from American ambient legend Steve Roach. The release appeared late summer 2017- in either the form of a CD, cassette or digital download- I’m reviewing the CD version of the release.
Class Of 1999 - Class Of 1999(Blu Ray)
Class Of 1999 is a decidedly campy yet often brutal action Sci-Fi  flick from the early ’90s. Think a blend of the punky charm of Troma’s school-based movies,  slightly lower-grade Terminator & Robocop action, and more explosion fuelled Warriors gang fighting-  and you’ll get an idea of what we have here.  Here from Lionsgate is a Blu Ray reissue of the film- taking in a good selection of extras.
Necrotik Fissue - Sleeping Above The Dry Grassland
Sleeping Above The Dry Grassland is a nearing three-hour sonic journey into brutal searing- yet unmoving & terminal suffocating walled noise, which has as its title suggests a fairly primal nature-based feel to it. The release appears on British label Void Singularity Recordings- as either a double CDR or digital download- the physical release appeared in an edition of fifteen copies, and as of this review the label still has copies.
