Panjoma
Panjoma: Trixter God
Label: Wonderlust Discs and Digital/ GRID Discs

Pulsing through the dimensions of industrial obliqueness, while elsewhere traipsing through a delirious version of synthpop and it’s affectionate afterbirth, affords the room to spend time congealing in the psycho lounge. Currently a trio and formerly ‘Happy Panjoma,’ this Austin outfit is able to ease the rebellious spirits with plush beats and floaty female vocals.

Omnisquid
Label: CD Baby

Vascilating between intense Tool level prog metal, and ambient electronic glitches this truly IS the Omnisquid! Weaving a path of ever morphing grooves and rhythms occasionally popping into King Crismson level tinkering and tweaking on their guitars, lespecial delivers twists and turns a plenty, but not so many that the music suffers. Bristling with activity and inspiration there is much to absorb and observe here.

Smooth and flowing, mostly instrumental, electronic compositions, free from drops and jagged edges as well as the convulsions of pop music.
