Happy year of the Snake!
B/B/S/ will be heading out on a short tour at the end of the month:
01-23 @ Monarch, Berlin, DE
01-25 @ Christuskirche, Bochum, DE
01-26 @ Plane Ari Home Gigs/L’auréole, Bethencourt, FR
01-27 @ Les Ateliers Claus, Brussels, BE
And in other new project news, Adoran Aidan‘s collaborative project with Dorian Williamson (of Northumbria) will be releasing a full-length album with Consouling Sounds later this year. An unmastered excerpt of the first track from this album is streamable here:
Some of you may recognize Adoran‘s name from the Drone Compendium Series slowly making its way into the world via Beta-lactam Ring Records. I know this series has been long-delayed…but these LPs will eventually get out there! The third in the series, Mnemosyne‘s Air Grows Small Fingers, should be out soon!

As the penultimate month of 2012 nears its end, we’ve a few last shows of the year to announce. Nadja will be performing in Israel (assuming the ceasefire holds) for the first time on December 6 at Uganda in Jerusalem and December 7 at Levontin 7 in Tel Aviv.
Here is a rough mix of one of the tracks from Caudal‘s forthcoming debut on the UK charitable label Oaken Palace Records:
And if anyone might be interested in what we are listening to ourselves these days, we did three mp3 “mixtapes” recently for your downloading pleasure: CVLT Nation: Sonic Cathedrals Vol LXXVIII, Secret Thirteen Mix 034, and
Self-Titled Mag: Needle Exchange #112.

The Drone Compendium is a 6LP series (7 for subscribers) featuring music by me &/or various musical projects with which I am or have been involved. You can read more about it in this earlier post here, in case you missed it.
& you can stream &/or download Pure Drone here:
“In einem perfekten, tief texturierten, bassbetonten Sound; körperlich, fast greifbar. So, dass man sich wünscht, die Platte würde nie aufhören. Egal, welche der beiden Seiten.”

In the quest for online listening opportunities, there are other options besides our respective Bandcamp pages (AB, Nadja, & BSP) which, of course, are linked somewhere over there to the right and easy to find.
So in the interests of expediency, here’s a list of other places for you to find some streaming &/or free music:

This album is a bit of a departure, entirely eschewing the guitar, and exploring a more minimal ‘drone jazz’ approach, with just piano, electric bass, and drums for instrumentation. The album can be streamed and/or downloaded on my Bandcamp page.

We’ve just launched a Broken Spine Bandcamp page for the dissemination of digital downloads (vbr mp3 and lossless formats). We’ve upped a couple pay-what-you-want albums as well, including the vinyl mix of Under the Jaguar Sun which features our mix of the 2 separate cds from the cd release.
Nb: if anyone’s wondering at the flurry of recent activity…we’ve been attempting to take greater control of our output so that we actually see more of the profit from our artistic endeavours (and, accordingly, are better able to continue making art and music)…so if you purchase files from our bandcamp page, the money goes straight to us, unlike downloads via the usual channels (iTunes, Emusic, what-have-you), which more often than not filters through who knows how many number of virtual hands before reaching us (if it ever does).
