Rafael Toral
Moon Field

Highly skilled and storied Portugese sound artist Rafael Toral makes a welcome appearance on Lawrence English’s Room40 label. The sound field Toral employs on this latest album is stark and clinical, but the tones vibrating within are etched deep with studious character, whether it’s a measured guitar drone or a clipped sax ramble.

The Residents
Please Do Not Steal It

The 1979 record Please Do Not Steal It was known for simply being left with radio stations all over the USA with only the album art to go off: This is a special DJ record of The Residents’ alleged music. Please Do Not Steal It! Keep it at your station – we need the radio airplay. Both descriptive and assertive, this release originally had 975 copies made, but this specific 180g white coloured vinyl reissue LP is limited to 1000. Get 'um whilst they're hot (well, warm)!

Philip Glass
Low Symphony

Philip Glass took three recordings from the sessions of 'Low' -- David Bowie's most famous collaboration with Brian Eno, and his first foray into kraut influenced rock (the first in his Berlin trilogy) -- and turned them into this symphony. The tracks in question are all instrumentals: "Warszawa", "Subterraneans" and "Some Are". It was performed by the Brooklyn Philharmonic orchestra.

Franco Battiato
Fetus

Exciting times: new reissues of essential rare LPs by Franco Battiato, the Italian electroacoustic composer. His trippy experimental approach to music has plenty of advanced sonics going on, but still displays has trace elements of a pop mind hiding in there somewhere as well. Fetus, released in 1971, is a concept album about genetic engineering (just look at that cover…), that manages to create multiple whole worlds with a flurry of short tracks. Reissued to vinyl by Superior Viaduct.

Franco Battiato
Sulle Corde Di Aries

Exciting times: new reissues of essential rare LPs by Franco Battiato, the Italian electroacoustic composer with a trippy abstract experimental sonic approach that has trace elements of a pop mind hiding in their somewhere. Sulle Corde Di Aries is his 1973 album, and it explores some truly fantastic moods and sounds. Reissued to vinyl by Superior Viaduct.

Mia Zabelka
Cellular Resonance

Mia Zabelka brings intensive and experimental approaches to the archetypally classical sound object of the violin, using both physical and digital extended techniques (prepared objects in the strings, howling, an array of live electronics) to hone her own instrumental language. On Cellular Resonance, she even has processing assistance from Lydia Lunch(!), making this a particularly noisy release of hers. Out on Little Crackd Rabbit.

Isnaj Dui
Poiesis

Isnaj Dui, aka experimental musician Katie English, presents her new full-length Poiesis. True to form, she continues to blend sparse motifs created from all sorts of electronic and acoustic sources. Her trademark Orientalist flute is present, if less so than previously. Slow and artful, English covers a spectrum from playful to quite sinister and tense. Poiesis comes in a hand-stamped sleeve, as with all Rural Colours releases.

raven
the night is dark, the night is silent, the night is bright, the night is loud

New album from Peter Hollo’s (Fourplay, Tangents) solo project Raven. At it’s heart, is his cello, creating loops, drones and ambiences. Backed up with electronics, sampling and piano Hollo doesn’t so much force two worlds together but molds them to fit seamlessly. Neo classical meets breakbeats, noise and glitches. Think Squarepusher meets Arthur Russell.

Aine O'Dwyer
Gallarais

Aine O'Dwyer's attempts to play high and low with drone have led her to such projects as playing organs in a church while the cleaners vacuumed the place. Her new record, Gallarais, sees her scope out yet another unique environmental setting, recorded in the depths of the Brunel tunnel for the sake of focusing in on its acoustics. The record uses both the sounds of the space and those that interweave with it, as incidental sounds from above ground find their way into the sound mass. A fascinating experiment.

Muslimgauze
Return of Black September

There has never been and probably never will be an artist like Muslimgauze. A British experimental musician deeply influenced by the history of the Muslim world who released an enormous amount of music in a very short time.  Return of Black September (the title might sound poetic but it references a notorious Palestinian terrorist organisation) was a brooding 68 minute piece that used soul samples, dub and electronica. This vinyl and CD re-press contains two tracks not on the original release.  

Muslimgauze
Minaret Speaker

The Muslimgauze project is famed for two things in particular: a very high quality of work, and a very high quantity of work. Minaret Speaker is more or less a new release (a few tracks had a 7” in 1996, but other than that, all unheard), and features his trademark digital distortion, clattering breaks, and samples sourced from the Middle East. CD on Staalplaat.

Muslimgauze
Sulaymaniyah

Sulaymaniyah is album number 92 (yes, 92) from the very prolific ethnic electronic musician Muslimgauze, aka Bryn Jones. Originally released in 2008, nine years after his death, it was one of a number of previously unreleased recordings he’s sent to the Staalplaat label before his untimely death in 1999.

Hogni
Two Trains

Hogni already makes music as GusGus and Hjaltalin, but that just wasn’t enough for him, so here he is with a new outlet. As Hogni, he’s doing something different, crooning in a futuristic R&B style over busy instrumentals that mix classical music and electronic experimentation. Two Trains is very cinematic stuff.

Bruce Russell
Metallic OK

Bruce Russell is one third of the fabulous New Zealand abject noise / unrock band The Dead C, which means anything he does is automatically worth investigating. Metallic OK is a juicy double-size portion of Russell’s solo business, incorporating good old feedback guitar squall but also detailed musique concrete adventures. Double CD on Glass Records Redux.

Rambutan
Crawling in the Margins

Eric Hardiman, owner of the Tape Drift label, has been making his soundscapes under the moniker Rambutan since 2007. Hiding out in an underground shelter somewhere in Albany, New York, Hardiman uses anything that takes his fancy to make recordings that constantly keep the listener guessing. Crawling In The Margins is released on Sonic Oyster and limited to 50 copies.

Mumbles
Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls

A curious creation from Sweden’s Mumbles here. Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls is a little story, telling a year in the life of some 1800s settlers. It is partly scripted, partly performed on instruments like violins, and feels like a wonderful experimental radio play, especially when handmade sound effects are deployed. Limited edition cassette on Leafdog.

Various (Seefeel, Scorn, Timothy Leary, Yanomami)

Utopian Diaries was a short lived series that acted as a sub label under Sub Rosa in the mid 90s which featured unreleased material focused around the faded idea of utopia. Featured artists included DJ Spooky, Coil, Laibach, Scanner, Oval. Here we have the third in the series, released in 1995, with tracks from Seefeel, Scorn, Timothy Leary & DJ Cheb I Sabbah.

WK569
Omaggio a Marino Zuccheri

Founded ten years ago by Federico Troncatti, Ezio Martinazzi and Pier Enrico Villa, WK569 was established as a kind of real-time experiment in sonic architecture and alternative methods of music construction. This single-sided 12” record Omaggio a Marino Zuccheri is a tribute to pioneering sound engineer Marino Zuccheri. 

Various
Lessons

To mark and celebrate 10 years of the Front & Follow label, they present their 50th release as this compilation of a broad selection of artists they have worked with, 25 tracks exercising their eclectic nature. Includes tracks from Leyland Kirby, Pye Corner Audio, The Doomed Bird Of Providence, Ekoplekz and many more.

SAICOBAB
SAB SE PURANI BAB

Traditional Indian modes hybridise with exuberant contemporary experimentation for this luxurious foil-jacketed double vinyl from Japan four-piece SAICOBAB, courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Here, the band’s debut Sab Se Purani Bab comprises highly unusual, highly groovy combinations of sitar, double bass, various percussion and gamelan and the voice of Boredoms / OOIOO member YoshimiO. Sounding like little else on Earth, these are intercultural encounters of a rather nutty kind.

Charlemagne Palestine
Strumming Music

Essential vinyl reissue of Charlemagne Palestine's seminal 1974 LP 'Strumming Music'. A mesmerising work of classic 20th Century minimalism, that originally appeared on the legendary French Shandar imprint (home to Philip Glass, Sun Ra, La Monte Young, Terry Riley etc.) Original copies sell for in excess of £160 so it's a real treat to have this truly transcendent work from this visionary artist once again available on it's original format. At once simple and complex, this profoundly beautiful music still sounds like a magic carpet ride through the heavens. A physically demanding performance recorded in his Manhattan loft - one which yields maximum beauty from the simplicity of his Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano and sustain pedal. A masterclass in the hypnotic beauty of repetition and nuance. This new edition has been licensed from FGL Productions, remastered by Equus, cut by Rashad Becker and includes an insert with liner notes by Julian Cowley.

Bark Psychosis
Hex

'Hex' formed part of the first wave of post-rock made whilst the likes of Mogwai were in short trousers but it has more in common with the splintered atmospheres of late period Talk Talk, a meticulously conceived masterpiece of mood and emotion. Now expertly re-mastered and re-pressed, this is an essential purchase for fans of exploratory, forward thinking music.

Kink Gong
Tibetan Buddhism Trip

So field recorder Laurent Jeanneau decided it was a good idea to release his recordings of ethnic minorities and their music under the name Kink Gong. He was wrong of course but either way we have a beguiling recording from Tibet and Yunnan in China which has been recomposed by Jeanneau in Berlin to form Tibetan Buddhism Trip.

Francisco Lopez
La Selva: Sound Environments From A Neotropical Rain Forest

Francisco Lopez is a real pro at recording and sequencing field recordings, and rainforests are a particular favourite of his. La Selva: Sound Environments From A Neotropical Rain Forest is a continuous 70-minute piece of amazing scale and detail. Presented on a USB memory stick accompanied, for some unfathomable reason, by a blank LP. On Sub Rosa.

David Grubbs
Creep Mission

David Grubbs, one of the two masterminds behind Gastr Del Sol as well as a superb music writer, presents an album of explorative guitar pieces, sketched out with the assistance of boundary-pushers like Eli Keszler on drums and Nate Wooley on trumpet. Partially composed and partially improvised, but all fascinating and exciting. Creep Mission is released by Blue Chopsticks.

Nino Nardini
Musique Pour Le Future

For the first time in four decades Musique Pour Le Future by the universally infamous sonic experimentalist, cosmic curator and alleged time lord Nino Nardini (a.k.a. Georges Teperino) is available on vinyl. Out on We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records the continuum defying, imagined sci-fi score is presented in an irradiant future-proof cardboard sleeve! A cool collection of compositions and a fitting companion to works by Louis and Bebe Barron.

Object Collection
It's All True

Object Collection are a New York ensemble who bring experimental operatic approaches to the live archives of Fugazi. They’ve used everything from those live recordings apart from the songs themselves, resulting in some really remarkable and strange material. It’s All True is a brilliant example of how to interpret a band’s legacy in a fresh creative way. CD and LP editions.

The Residents
Intermission

Available on 180 gram clear vinyl on Music on Vinyl. Avantgarde and anonymous art collective The Residents Originally released Intermissions in 1982. They made it very clear that it was not the 3rd chapter of the Mole trilogy (which seemed to never actually exist), but a cutting of related materials. Limited repressing of 1000 copies.

Neil Campbell & Richard Youngs
Six Scores

Somewhere in a suburban drawing room two men of advancing years decided on a musical project like no other. Each would write music for the other to play then they would put it all together without the other hearing what the other had done. I think I got that right -- I'm as confused as you are. Anyway anything featuring these two former A Band members is bound to be unique and this may be the most unique of all.

kiKu & Blixa Bargeld & Black Cracker
Eng, Düster und Bang

kiKu & Blixa Bargeld & Black Cracker brings together kiKu who describe themselves as an “avant-garde machine” and Blixa Bargeld, a German singer with the band Einstürzende Neubauten. Together they make Eng, Düster und Bang, an experimental electronic album with spoken word and beautiful brass elements merging into clunking synths.

Mutamassik
Symbols Follow

Mutamassik has always tried to defy description, and has certainly become rather deft at it. Perhaps the label’s descriptor ‘arabified swamp music’ suits Symbols Follow, which hopefully will be as far out as Mutamassik’s previous works. Expect thumping, hypnotizing beats coated in strange sound collages.

Olymphia
Music for a Dance Performance

The latest Posh Isolation release is a collaboration between joint-label-boss Loke Rahbek and Lower / Vår member Kristian Emdal. Using the project name Olymphia, they produce low-slung, sinisterly-reverbed tracks of synth drone and drum machine, apparently designed to represent or suggest Music For A Dance Performance.

Maria Teresa Luciani
Sounds Of The City

Maria Teresa Luciani’s bold electronic album Sounds Of The City, from 1972, is richly deserving of a reissue and some serious attention. Luciani’s array of sound materials and concepts is huge (encompassing tape loops, found sound samples, intuitive and academic approaches, pop and noise) and deeply effective at creating an idiosyncratic sonic world of her own. This rare gem is now reissued by Finders Keepers, hooray!

Nazoranai
Beginning To Fall In Line Before Me, So Decorously, The Nature Of All That Must Be Transformed

Third long player from the power trio / avant-rock supergroup comprising of Keiji Haino (Fushitsusha), Oren Ambarchi and Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O))). This recording captures these titans in all their electrifying, shredding and meditative glory at at SuperDeluxe in Tokyo. Released on U.S imprint Superior Viaduct's sister label W.25TH, complete with a download card and glorious artwork by Lars Teichmann.

Steve Reich
Drumming

What collection of the great works of Steve Reich would be complete without the mighty Drumming? The piece, scored for a percussion ensemble of marimbas, glockenspiels, tuned bongos etc., moves beautifully through an array of rhythms and counter-rhythms, following Reich’s simple-but-complex patterns. This classic 1987 recording has been remastered for this vinyl reissue on Pure Pleasure.

Soundwalk Collective with Jesse Paris Smith (featuring Patti Smith)
Killer Road

Soundwalk Collective were pleased and surprised to end up working with Patti Smith after a chance airplane meeting. Together with Patti’s daughter Jesse Paris Smith, the ensemble pay tribute to Nico, reinterpreting her lyrics and sonically representing different aspects of the Killer Road on which Nico had her fatal bike accident. An eerie and woozy stretch of semi-ambience and spoken-word, out on Bella Union.

Released by the Float label.

Ferocious performances from all sides. LP on Three Lobed Recordings.

Siavash Amini
TAR

Containing an ocean-sized depth of emotion and meaning, TAR is Tehran-based producer Siavash Amini's 2017 brainchild. Comprised of four offerings, including the mammoth twelve-minutes-plus tracks 'A Dream's Frozen Reflection' and 'The Dust We Breathe', this is a sophisticated take on modern drone and classical genres.

Tony Conrad
Ten Years Alive On The Infinite Plain

Ten Years Alive On The Infinite Plain began with image before sound. Tony Conrad premiered this record way back in 1972 at The Kitchen in New York, and it was seen as a masterpiece of strings and drones that piled up together to create two hours of solid and genuine music. Available on Vinyl double LP and CD.

Esmark

Mara II  contains more hauntingly isolated minimal electronics, groaning out of an array of analogue equipment manned by Alsen Rau (On + Brr/Scheich in China) and Nikolai Von Sallwitz (Karachi Files/Taprikk Sweezee). Think of a minimal, less noise focus Nate Young. LP on Bureau B.

Esmark
Mara I

Esmark is a new collaborative project from Alsen Rau (On + Brr/Scheich in China) and Nikolai Von Sallwitz (Karachi Files/Taprikk Sweezee). Working together on analogue equipment they created a huge catalogue of minimal experimental pieces, enough to cover a two parter debut release. Dark, isolated and hypnotic, there are element of Nate Young esque dread to it.

Eric Chenaux
Skullsplitter

Sometimes you gotta keep the unknowing masses at a distance. That’s what Eric Chenaux must have thought, because Skullsplitter is not filled with extremely hardcore techno. In fact, it’s overflowing with gentle and beautiful soundscapes, straight from his skull to the vinyl. Maybe that’s where the name comes from.

Sebastian Camens
Tan Object

Constructed around a menacing synth drone that threads through the entire album, musician and producer Sebastian Camens hit several emotional peaks and troughs with his Tan Object record. The repetitive yet malleable structures never stay in the same place for long, and the mood is impossible to pin down.

Super Silent

Tout Croche is two gentlemen from Huddersfield dealing in tactile droning and noise, running the gamut from pretty and immersive, to scuzzy and ramshackle. Opener Dead or Fade Away puts a spanner straight in the works with a garagey punked-up number recalling something like Tyvek, or an early, wild Sebadoh. It makes for a intriguing trip - and a limited one, at 300 wax copies on The Silent Howl.

As the third full-length from Andrew PM Hunt, under the moniker of Dialect, Loose Blooms is a idiosyncratic twist of weirdness. Constantly anxious, riddled with paranoia around environmental disaster and human violence - this reaches depths that your run-of-the-mill pop could never reach, this is Hunt's life-affirming work.

Yoko Ono
Fly

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musician’s achievements back into the limelight next to her reputation. Fly is an epic opus of a double album, ably splitting the difference between Yoko’s avant-Fluxus side and her 70’s rock grooving side, with lengthy tracks like ‘Mind Train’ and ‘Fly’ going motorik-chug and full abstract-screaming respectively. Totally vita stuff. CD and vinyl editions available.
