Istanbul soundscapist zcan Ertek, aka soundcollage, has just released his second EP Bedroom Spirit to follow up his excellent debut from last year Moon Junk. You may recall an article we wrote on that back in October. Check that out here. Bedroom Spirit builds on the atmospheric and experimental trajectory of Moon Junk with some noticeable departures. Whereas his first release contained a great deal of oscillation where the music was largely the rhythm, Ertek has, in parts, employed electronic percussion here to great effect.

This is no better illustrated than on opening track 'Sudden Bright Suns' which ebbs away underneath a shuffling 4/4 beat that almost feels oddly tropical. 'Silver Weekend' is an unsettling ride that employs an array of drum sounds. The title track sports a hopeful dispostion with an expertly inserted vinyl crackle for good measure that loops in throughout the track. Shades of light and dark alternate on the intense 'The Day We Died' while final track is driven by a spooky loop that marks out the otherworldly feel of the whole EP. This is a release that deserves to be heard - if you're a fan of experimental electronic music, soundcollage is more than deserving of your time. Grab it free here at his bandcamp.
