An adventurous romp though new age enlightenment and extra-terrestrial soundscapes.
This is a great album that I discovered way 10 years ago already when the Netlabel scene was in it’s prime. Two of my favorite netlabels were Test Tube, and Zymogen. Lezrod released this one on Zymogen, and it still really holds up today as well as it did in 2007.
This is a very experimental release firmly nested in ambient. I came across it again today on archive.org when looking for some other material to play on DS Radio. Speaking of DS Radio, we’re now listed in the icecast directory, as well as on tunein radio.

The newest solo project by drummer / multi-instrumentalist, Justin Wierbonski “Manasota” is coming to 180g Vinyl April of 2016. This brand new self-titled instrumental release combines elements of 1970s Krautrock, Clube da Esquina era Brazilian rock, Early ECM sound, and 90s post rock, clean yet natural sounding album that is inspirational, contemplative, mysterious, as well as maturely arranged and produced.
This release is 10 brand new songs that are performed entirely on acoustic drums, acoustic guitar, electric bass, Brazilian hand percussion, exotic stringed instruments, and digital synthesizers.
You can hear two preview songs as well as pre-order the LP here.
Sometime in 2009 or 2010 I downloaded this album from somewhere but can’t remember how and where I got it originally. It kept coming on my random playlist while listening to music on my computer and every time it did, I was like “wow, who is this? it’s really cool” so today I did some binging and found his bandcamp page. Turns out he’s from the Philippines and has a ton of music on his bandcamp! However it looks like his most recent release is from 2011.
I’m currently trying to make contact with him though to see what’s up and if he has any interest in releasing some new music. Until then, I highly recommend “Listen!” It reminds me of what could have happened if Air collaborated with Brian Eno for an LP. Really great stuff, especially the songs “Sorrow” and “Touch The Sky”.
Show this talented musician some support!
