Death and Spring

Together, Agathe Max and Tom Relleen (of Tomaga) are Papivores, the Paper Eaters, the experimental composition duo. These two are both veteran sound explorers with a great range, and this debut collaboration is a perfect match-up, allowing them to work deep into some very interesting areas. On Hands In The Dark.

Extended Play 1

Tomaga are an experimental group that have released a string of well-received studio records that take in primarily cosmic jazz, but also krautrock and minimalism. This new project from them is entitled 'Extended Play 1', but don't let the slightly unimaginative nomenclature fool you, this will surely be a wild foray into new groove territory. 


UUUU are a new group of musicians that have come together to bring a new sound to the world of music. This self titled double Vinyl LP has been released on Valentina Magaletti, and is a complete soundscape of genres that are all layered together to create a number of tracks. You constantly get snippets of rock or classical strings thought out- it really doesn't get boring. 

Memory In Vivo Exposure

Tomaga's new material sees a deepening of their signature rhythmic atmosphere, opening in a chiming hypnosis reminiscent of traditional Balinese gamelan. Stripped back, metallic percussion and subtle musicality follows and makes up the album's bulk, ending in a near ambient, contemplative atmosphere.

Music For Visual Disorders

Multi-instrumentalists Valentina Magaletti and Tom Relleen, aka Tomaga, unleash a 9-track opus of gentle ambient, industrial minimalism and Krautrock-inspired motorik. This is a gentle record, revolving around intuitive pulses and abstract imagery, avant-garde in its approach, contemporary in its execution. 

Greetings From The Bitter End

Excitingly, this new Tomaga release doesn’t only feature brand new material from the mighty duo: it also includes a pair of remixes, one each from Shit & Shine and Cavern Of Antimatter! Extra potent stuff. Tuned marimba percussion is at the core of Greetings From The Bitter End, and it sounds great in the context of the Tomaga whirl. 12” on Kaya Kaya.

TOMAGA & Orlando
Play Time: Music for Video Games

Inspired by but not necessarily bearing any relation to pre-existing video game soundtracks, this previously Bandcamp-only brims with quirk and charm. Yes, there’s a smattering of chiptune, but the collection draws voraciously from basically anything kitsch or kitsch-able - Rumba, lift music and Tron-style muscle-grooves all crop up in the first three tracks alone. A delightful bit of wax.

The Shape Of The Dance

Tomaga are always a fierce prospect live, where their combination of percussion, organ and electronics has been blowing audiences away for years. Happily, they can recreate that power on record too: The Shape Of The Dance is their second full-length album, and takes a minimalist approach that sometimes recalls Oneida (this is the highest of compliments). Released by Hands In The Dark.

Familiar Obstacles

The consistently strong Blank Tapes cassette label releases a new slice of Tomaga, a London-based duo playing on drums, synthesisers and a delicious array of various acoustic and electronic objects. Familiar Obstacles has 2 side-long tracks running to 52 minutes, and there only 100 copies out there, so move fast!

Futura Grotesk

London duo TOMAGA create darkly experimental music on their debut LP, Futura Groteska. It sounds like the soundtrack to some 1970s Italian horror film full of strange psychedelic scenes of lizards eating pigs or something of the like. It’s disconcerting but with a really solid percussive feel which keeps things grinding onward nicely. For fans of bands such as Demdike Stare’s creepy worlds.
