Shake Appeal#12: Carla dal Forno, Helm, Meddicine, Peter Simpson

All proceeds go to Hestia and All About Trans

CARLA DAL FORNO is an Australian multi-instrumentalist. She is a member of the groups F ingers and Tarcar, and formerly cult Melbourne outfit Mole House.
Her debut solo album, “You Know What It’s Like”, was released on Blackest Ever Black in Autumn 2016:

“psychedelic folk delivered with (post-)punk economy. Drifting in space while still tethered to the ground. Astral tones blurred with earth sounds: wood, bone, breath, skin, dirt. Ending and beginning, dying and becoming. Longing for adventure and an unquiet life. Struggling to get out of bed.”
This year saw the release of new EP “The Garden”, “a compact masterpiece from a remarkable artist who – frighteningly, excitingly – has only just begun to hit her stride.”

HELM is Luke Younger, a sound artist and experimental musician based in London, working with a vast array of revolving instrumentation and abstract sound sources. Younger’s compositions build dense aural landscapes that incorporate elements of musique concrete and industrial music alongside hallucinatory drones and various acousmatic phenomena.

MEDDICINE, aka Monika Krol, is a post-punk synthesist who plays fractured noise pop over a backing track of industrial soundscapes. Clattering, throbbing and oscillating her way through old sounds and new, Meddicine produces some of the darkest, most-damaged and affecting analogue electronic music you are likely to hear on this planet or any other.
