Report: Sulphur part VIII released on Otium Netlabel
Appearing once more, now in its eight incarnation, is the latest effort in the long running "Sulphur" series from collaborators Etheocles Stevens and Seetyca. Sulphur part eight, subtitled Endless, follows the tradition of deep and dark soundworlds of a colossal and intense mangitude. gterma veterans who took a liking to the Seetyca album The Luminous Deep will find much illumination in this dark eigth episode. If you are not yet familiar with Sulphur I do recommend a visit to the Russian netlabel Otium where you can find the more recent episodes in this series.

gterma listeners can also look forward to a passage from Sulphur part IV on the up and coming Phra Rahu compilation.

Signs of Life...

It is time for our first release of the year, the charming and deep adventure of "Tanuki Dreams". Follow Timothy Gray and the restless Tanuki creature as they dive through recordings made in the years between 2008 and 2012. The Phra Rahu compilation which was originally scheduled to be out by now is currently facing some delays and will unfortunately not be available during the total lunar eclipse which will descend upon us this April. We will have to hold hands in the darkness all the same. Om Dhum Ram Rahave Namah.
[gterma035] : Ethernet - Tanuki Dreams (2014-03-27)

The Tanuki is the much loved but naughty little racoon dog of Japanese lore. It invited us over to the small farmhouse where it has currently taken up residence. telling us of its many pilgrimages through forgotten and slumbering lands far away. In the same manner, we now look back on the Japanese influences on Tim Gray, perhaps better known through his Ethernet name. Nine pieces of hypnotizing and slumbering ambient with drone and dub influences. Comes in a jewel case with 16-page booklet. [gterma035] : Ethernet - Tanuki Dreams by the lost gterma

Hooray... postal charges on the rise.

Starting April 1st the Swedish Post will raise the prices on all letter services. The base multiplier SEK 6 (which is the cost for a regular domestic 20g letter) is upped to SEK 7 which carries with it multiplier effects for all foreign customers as well. Basically the cost of a 100g envelope will be raised from 4x SEK 6 to 4x SEK7, 250g goes from 8x SEK6 to 8x SEK 7 and so on.
