ill-list experimental tracks: DJ Haram, Simo Cell, Laurie Spiegel, Giant Swan


genre bending, undefinable and a little WTF. bring an open ear to this ill-list of tracks and be transported to a realm beyond consciousness, no acid drops needed.


on the hunt for alternative sounds, I worked through a Spotify experimental playlist and got exactly what I was looking for.



top finds below.

55 Year Old Daughter - Giant Swan


best description: a giant screaming ball of raging noise that makes you wanna scratch your skin off and eat it...while dancing of course.



May I suggest giving the entire album a listen.



Automatic Ping - Keith Fullerton Whitman


best description: a tune that holds true to it's name and goes places that will either put a smile on your face or make your eyes burst from their sockets.



Ecstasy of St. Teresa - Object Blue


best description: is that the song or is there something wrong with my wifi? get to 3:19 and you'll realize everything is absolutely fine!




Forward Motion - Aril Brikha


best description: put this on if you've got some shit you need to think through; for when you've lost and won at the same time.




Missy Mischief - Tarquin


best description: Trappy, jazzy, funeral-ly.





Stop the Killing - Simo Cell


best description: I don’t recommend this for anxiety suffers, as it’s menacing pace can make your heart race, but I guess that’s the point. Watch out at 1:30 and 2:25.





No Idol - DJ Haram


best description: makes you wanna smoke hookah in a low rider and make it bounce at a red light at 1:57- 2:28 and drive off.






First Flight - Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith


best description: are you from outer space? then this song is calling you home. and it sounds as though it's for something BIG.






Clockworks - Laurie Spiegel


best description: something dark in looming in a far galaxy...and it's on it's way.



Blemtrails - Yamaneko


best description: how many times will I listen to this before I decide whether I like it or not?





Future Goner - Neu Balance


best description: perhaps it’s just the stoner in me but for the last year I’ve been low key obsessed with lo-fi. this is the slow wake up, trying to piece together what happened last night and being grateful that you don't have to do shit today. And if you do, it can wait...but not for too long.





Rikers - Commodo


best description: for the smoke ssshhh, let this rock.
