Pizza Beast releases “Suite for Aerial Freefall” by Jorge

Ever experienced freefall? I have not, unless you count a couple nervous flights. Suite for Aerial Freefall is a twenty-eight minute single-track album by Jorge, available through Pizza Beast (f.k.a.

Shima33 – Disgraceful.

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ As with most releases by Shima33, Disgraceful. is abject melancholia expressed as music. This eight-track album was originally released as a semi-official addition to TKX Vault (then known as Tokyo Exchange) in November 2015; the Dream Catalogue imprint further facilitated Disgraceful. in artwork design and promotion.1 It’s a somewhat collaborative work: Shima33 credits HKE (as Hong Kong Express), […]

Most of the tracks hover around the […]
