"My favorite piece on the album, “The Attachment”, begins with a distant lo-fi recording of a string phrase warbled over dusty piano keys, captured on a 1940s magnetic recorder, until it slowly comes into focus with its immediately soul crushing melancholy melody. The nostalgic subject, framed by its title, implies moments of self-reflection on things, places and people that we fail to let go." ♫♪ read:// Headphone Commute​ review of Michael Price​'s "Entanglement" now out on Erased Tapes Records​ : http://hcdi.gs/MichaelPrice
Entanglement is a very personal expression of my obsessions: music, love, physics and the inter-connectedness of things. London-based Erased Tapes continues to delight. It's no wonder that some of ...

"Darker pieces slowly swell and envelope you in their entirety, until the black fog breathes down your throat with its distortion, growing in intensity, pressure and force. The latter, is notably is not only accomplished with dynamics and full throttled volume, but rather with a balance of discord, harmonic agitation, and a heart pounding thump." ♫♪ read:// words on Disasterpeace​ - It Follows OST out on Milan Records​ : http://hcdi.gs/ItFollowsOST

I'm extremely excited to announce that my first ever official music release as HC will be appearing on Hibernate Recordings​ benefit compilation, titled "Dayalu / for Nepal" to raise money for the victims of the earthquake disaster in Nepal. My short solo piano piece is appearing alongside my all-time favorite artists, such as Machinefabriek​, Clem Leek​, Autistici​, Field Rotation​, Isnaj Dui​, Antonymes​, Olan Mill​ and many others, so I couldn't be more happier to contribute to this wonderful cause. I hope that you support this compilation (digital + 2xCD edition), and of course, dig my humble composition. Pre-order your copy at the below link, with many more musicians to be announced soon!!!

Introduction
Headphone Commute is an independent resource of candid words on electronic, experimental and instrumental music, featuring album reviews, artist interviews, label profiles, and a somewhat-weekly podcast.

The range of covered genres includes electronica, glitch, idm, drum’n’bass, breakcore, dubstep, trip-hop, modern classical, post-rock, shoegaze, ambient, downtempo, experimental, abstract, minimal and everything in between. 

HC is not associated with any artist, band, record label, promoter, distributor or retailer covered by the reviews. 

There is no hidden agenda behind these words. What you see is what you get. All that means is that we share our love for music because we want to – not because we have to.
