David Lee Myers: Ether Music

Ether Music CD

The “Darwin of electromagnetic lifeforms”
– Mark Dery

“Dreamier meditations"
The New York Times


– Steve Smith, The Log Journal

The music on this new “David Lee Myers: Ether Music” CD is distinctive and enticing. We hear an hallucinatory trip to a Martian jungle; irregularly accented bongos overlaid with frog-croaked arpeggios; a rapidly sputtering, helium inhaling synthesizer; a demented organ, gasping for life; all concluding with dorsal streaming, which presents a lovely, placid atmosphere, tinged with panpipe-like chuffing.

TOD DOCKSTADER: From the Archives

Guy Klucevsek: Teetering on the Verge of Normalcy CD from Starkland

"Best of the Year List"
– Steve Smith, National Sawdust

“Best of the Year List”
– George Grella, The Big City Blog

“Throughout this 65 minute spyhole into Dockstader’s final thoughts, the fluidity of his technique and poetic vision impresses deeply.”
The Wire

Carefully selected from over 4,200 sound files left behind by this electroacoustic master, who died in 2015, these were the last pieces composed by Dockstader, before dementia stopped his studio work.

The CD completes a long arc starting from Starkland’s initial release of the first two Dockstader CDs: Tod Dockstader: Quatermass and Tod Dockstader: Apocalypse.

Teetering on the
Verge of Normalcy

Guy Klucevsek: Teetering on the Verge of Normalcy CD from Starkland

“A wonderful new CD”
- Brooklyn Rail

“A collection of tunes that feel timeless”
- The New York City Jazz Record

“Nicely accessible but nonetheless extraordinary”
- Gapplegate Music Review

The latest CD from master accordionist Guy Klucevsek abounds in sweetly gorgeous melodies, infectious rhythms, piquant harmonies, and superb musicianship. “Compared to his previous work, this heartfelt album has an especially elegiac quality, informed by the loss of comrades and colleagues,” writes Sarah Cahill in the CD's notes. Performers included violinist Todd Reynolds, soprano Kamala Sankaram, and pianist Alan Bern.
