Billow Observatory
II: Plains/Patterns

Billow Observatory are a transatlantic (Detroit / Denmark) duo carving out icey slabs of droning ambience with elements of shoegaze and distant techno woven into the mix. II: Plains / Patterns is some of their most rhythmic work to date. Available in an edition of 300 ‘milky translucent vinyl’ LPs and on CD,...view item »

Memory and Matter: Selected Remixes Rarities and Unreleased Tracks 2007-2014

Jonas Munk is a busy chap. Not only has he been releasing gorgeous drifty synth and guitar soundscapes as Manual since 2000, he's also brought out albums and soundtracks under his own name, collaborated with the likes of Ulrich Schnauss, and...view item »


It’s been a while since the last Manual album. In the meantime Jonas Munk has been keeping himself busy rocking out out some more with Causa Sui (those Pewt’r ...view item »

Manual & Orange Crush

Awkward Silence are back with another of those cute 3" CDs. This one is a split by Manual and Orange Crush where Manual does 2 songs, Orange Crush throw us a tune and there's a collaboration featuring both of them doing it together (really hard). The opener by Manual is really smooth sounding shoegazey electronica which I can see the BBC nabbi...view item »

Drowned In Light

Old Morr Music mucker Manual appears to have a new home, the communal DIY behemoth that is MMM; the talented Danes' first outing for this label is an absolute beauty. He kind of blurs the edges between the tentative post-cocteaus sway of early Yellow 6, classic dreampop, the gentler edges of Krautrock & kosmische synth exploration and the ecsta...view item »

Manual & Syntaks
Golden Sun

Manual and Syntaks? Manual I know but who Syntaks? Well together they have collaborated on a new album called Golden Sun on Darla. This is yr electronica along the lines of Ulruch Schnauss and Arovane's Tides with possible hints of later Boards Of Canada in there. It's got a palm tree and ...view item »

Azure Vista

Manual’s 2005 album Azure Vista has been enjoyed by synth-shoegaze fans for years, and now it finds itself released once more, for a hopefully-wider audience. The six original tracks are complemented by a disc of seven previously unreleased live tracks from around the same period. Double CD anniversary reissue on ...view item »


New on the ever consistent Static Caravan a brand new EP by Manual , an artist who, for me, never really topped the sparkling excellence of that first mini LP thingy he did. This is another good effort though it's washed out panoramic electronica which just lacks something in the production. Its like...view item »

Manual, Lullatone, Various
Little Darla Vol 23

Also on Darla we have a new 'Little Darla Has a Treat for You'.  Here, Manual covers 'Crockett's Theme' by Jan Hammer. I'm not sure if he's covered it or just taped it off the radio as it sounds EXACTLY the same as the original. Also has tracks by Momus, Aarktica, The Field Mice, Lullatone, Piano Magic, Darren H...view item »

Until Tomorrow

Manual bring us a new album on Morr Recordings and it's more lovely electronica as you'd expect. I think after 2 listens I prefer this to the last album already. Until Tomorrow is wonderful stuff....view item »

Manual & Icebreaker International
Into Forever

Next on The Sound of a Handshake (Morr offshoot, name taken from cLOUDDEAD slab of genius) we have a collaboration between Icebreaker International (who once did one quite excellent EP on Aesthetics) and Manual (who is a regular Morr guy). The guys in the office descr...view item »
