As an interested and curious listener, I feel lost sometimes when I discover new kinds of music. Often I'd like to hear more but don't know where to look further, even in the times of myspace and mp3-blogs and especially for such marginal music as experimental electronica where the web's oversupply of information tends to thin out. That's why I'm grateful to the people at Fang Bomb: They've already done all the digging, filtering and compiling for me to produce "Gothenburg 08", a sampler aimed to showcase Gothenburg's current electronic and experimental scene. The ten tracks presented here span a very wide bridge from Porn Sword Tobacco's almost over-enjoyable post-muzak to Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words' eponymously gloomy and demanding layers of noise. Most of the compilation oscillates between drones and slowly developing ambient pieces though, which creates an almost album-like feel throughout. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in electronic music that is ambitious, complex and accessible at the same time. The compilation's large bandwidth make it the ideal introduction to the different featured artists -- you just have to pick your favorite and look out for their future work.

An ambient journey that evokes Ulrich Schnauss' layered approach, Boards of Canada's peculiar brand of electronic music, and DJ Shadow's slower work, "New exclusive Olympic heights" is an interesting, compelling, and ultimately flourishing piece of music; a soundtrack where hope exists, but has lost its way, and events are explored with the pace and fluidity of a small brook. There is a childlike innocence threaded into the music, though this approach is tempered with the burden of experience, and, in due course, Porn Sword Tobacco's newest effort comes to feel like a daydream or a series of remembrances, all loosely linked with a calm present – an empty field, the noise of a stream and the light cargo it carries along its weak current. If I was a film director, significant sections of "New exclusive Olympic heights" would find their way into the display of moving pictures.
