Fire! Orchestra
Ritual

Fire! Orchestra are of course the mutated super-version of the mighty Fire! trio, adding up to 21 members on this record. The title Ritual is about right, with this many (mostly Swedish) major musicians grouped together to summon up energetic, elemental power. Heavy and ecstatic, there aren’t many...view item »


Grouper
Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill

Liz Harris’ 2008 album proved irresistible to many and is generally considered her defining release. A woozy fog of guitar and vocal, it’s simultaneously intoxicatingly beautiful, yet dark and unsettling. It’s been in and out of print over the years and often frustratingly unavailable, so here it is aga...view item »


Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld
Never Were The Way She Was

Available on 12” vinyl LP or CD from Constellation. Colin Stetson’s is renowned for his unique style with tenor and bass sax. Melding polyrhythmic blasts and clanks with prolonged and evolving drones as well as simultaneously vocalising through the mouthpiece. Joining forces with violinist Sarah Neufeld ...view item »


Fire
She Sleeps, She Sleeps

Hell of a collab, this one: experimentalist Mats Gustafsson has played sax 'n' reeds as part of The Thing and with Phil Minton, and here joins post-rock minimalist Johan Berthling (fresh from a record with Oren Ambarchi) and Andreas Werlin of the percussive dance crew Wi...view item »


Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Three: River Run Thee

River Run Thee is the third entry in Matana Roberts' so far incredible 12-part musical tapestry (as she called it for part two, "sound quilting") about civil rights and the history of creativity in America. Roberts' discipline is jazz, specifically avant compositions on saxophone, but, as implied with her invo...view item »


Wolf Eyes
I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces

Weird, a Wolf Eyes album on Jack White’s Third Man Records… I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces is the first ‘proper’ Wolf Eyes album to showcase their late-period Trip Metal (sorry John Olson, I mean TR1p Met@L!!1!) style, and while it is pretty dam...view item »


Charlie Ulyatt
Dead Birds

Sparse and haunting solo guitar pieces hailing from Lincolnshire. These delicate pieces have a similar lonely reflective quality as something written Caught In The Wake of Forever. Capturing the area, and the mental state your surroundings put you. Lightly driven guitar rings out into an almost mantra like drone, slowing your th...view item »

Sanjuro77
errorprone

This ‘errorprone’ limited edition cassette self released by the artist is the debut album from Manchester's Sanjuro77 -- but this guy is no newcomer to experimental electronic music. He’s been at it for 25 years and this album really shows he’s certainly no n...view item »


Matt Elliott
The Mess We Made

I don't know what the fuck to make of this new Matt Elliott album. Its sounds like scary circus music. Really sinister. Sounds kind of French which is apt as France is where Mr Elliott currently resides with lady and child. But despite this picture of domesticity this is one of the most dark twi...view item »


James Ginzburg & Yair Elazar Glotman
Nimbes

The art instillation 'Nimbes' was created between James Ginzburg, Yair Elazar Glotman and Joanie Lemercier, a visual undertaking that was projected around a "360 degree dome" in Canada. Seriously, you're gonna have to turn your head a lot if you want to take the whole thing in; the music aims to be as panoramic by reverberating with the same omn...view item »


James Ferraro
Rerex

Former the Skaters chap and actual skater James Ferraro has forged an idiosyncratic path over the last few years producing a dazzling array of musical styles and in fact winning the coveted the Wire Album of the Year in 2011. 'Rerex' is a wildly ambitious three hour extravaganza using cheap casios, loops and found sounds to lull...view item »


Anna Homler and Steve Moshier
Breadwoman & Other Tales

DJ R Tango
Road to Freedom

Road To Freedom is the first time ever that the work of DJ R Tango has been properly released: exciting times. The Hungarian producer conjures some potent landscapes out of what sounds like a shed-full of battered electronics: over the course of the album, brutal distorted beats fall back to allow synth-ambience to shin...view item »


Helm & Decimus
We Will Meet At Other Human Parties

Helm (of Luke Younger and Alter Records) & Decimus (Put Murano, NNCK, Kellipah) sees the two come together for a collaborative album, interestingly called; We Will Meet At Other Human Parties.

Nurse With Wound
Dark Fat

Dark Fat is what happens when Nurse With Wound elect to record all their live performances for a whole decade and then turn their curious eyes to the task of forming some new creature from the audio morass. What we get is a whole new set of compositions: you might catch the ghost of a gig you remember, but don’t b...view item »

Mats Gustafsson
Piano Mating

Fire-blowing saxophonist Mats Gustafsson has been tweaking away at electronics for quite a while now, but this is the first time I’ve heard him step away from the reeds entirely. On Piano Mating he uses an obscure quasi-instrument called the Pianomate to craft two sides of hovering tonal drones: great, and unexpec...view item »


AGF
Kon​:​3p>UTION to: e​[​VOL​]​ution

Kon:3p>UTION to: e[VOL]ution is an experimental album by producer and solo artist AGF. It’s his 9th solo album and his 30th studio album as a producer. It’s a strange, disjointed mix of electronic sounds and samples. It can be quite sinister with a lot of static and gurgling. An uneasy listen.&nbs...view item »


Jon Mueller
Tongues

Terrifying sleeve, terrifying music from the rather intense pen of Jon Mueller. Now we all remember Mueller from last years Death Ensemble record.

Af Ursin
Aura Legato

Auro Legato was initially released in 2005 by Af Ursin’s own private press imprint La Scie Doree. The limited run of 350 copies meant that, even as this album’s reputation grew, few were able to pick up this semi-abstract suite of drones, folk, jazz, and whatever ...view item »


Bruce Russell
Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings

Bruce Russell is of course one of the principal guitar-manglers for New Zealand noise-rock heroes The Dead C!

Val Denham
I Saw Myself in Your Dreams Last Night

Bradford dwelling artist Val Denham is a truly unique proposition. Since Vanity Case issued 'Dysphoria' a couple of years ago she has had a 3LP retrospective of early musical works published as well as lots of artwork type things so it's high time to delve back into her dark, fractured world. "Val Denham is probably the only artist liv...view item »

Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 1: Études for Acoustic Guitar

David First picks up his acoustic guitar for this release, the first in what promises to be a series.

Chris Herbert
Katushki

Chris Herbert is a sound architect with a nice, intuitive approach: he is equally adept dealing with melodic material as he is pure texture, and Katushki holds the ear’s attention throughout.

AJ Cornell & Tim Darcy
Too Significant To Ignore

Exciting stuff here, as Tim Darcy, the lithe frontman of Ought, teams up with improviser AJ Cornell for a tape of abstract atmospheres and paranoid spoken word.
