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.

S. Araw "Trio" XI
Gazebo Effect

Stoned psych-jammer Cameron Stallones’ Sun Araw project appears here in a new and evolved form, as the S. Araw “Trio” XI. Gazebo Effect presents four sides of their explorations, utilising various synths, computer programs and a ‘midi-guitar’ to produce strange shimmery soundscapes. An odd (e.g. good) collection indeed.

Hand of Stabs
Amphipod Gunvessel

Hand of Stabs fill this c60 cassette with the same improvised ambience that they have used to fill a wide variety of interesting spaces in and around their native Kent. The oddness of some of these places (burial grounds, abandoned schools etc.) seems to have infused into the music, a very positive thing. Amphiphod Gunvessel is released by Kitchen Dweller.

Damian Anache
Capturas del Unico Camino

Oh, there’s a lot going on here. Where to begin? So, there are some acoustic instruments played by Damian Anache and he also makes sounds “generated with his mouth” - it’s kinda like throat singing, or just someone saying “aah” for the dentist. There’s also a computer playing an algorithm of sonic sound. So ye, Capturas del unico camino certainly has a lot going on but it’s a subtle and soothing album of great depth. An box-set limited to 150 with CD, art-prints and musical score.

To help Blackest Ever Black raise the bar yet again they’ve brought in french avantgard trumpeter Jac Berrocal.

Baby Dee
I Am A Stick

Baby Dee finds serial percussionist Alex Neilson (Death Shanties, Trembling Bells) and a band also including Joe Carvell, Victor Herrero and Jordan Hunt working with Dee herself, to bring her piano-led songs to higher levels of intimate-but-grandiose odd-cabaret. I Am A Stick is out on Tin Angel Records.

Petrels
Flailing Tomb

The Petrels sound is a huge one, shooting high into the sky and falling down all around the listener. Flailing Tomb, his latest, is influenced seemingly by a little bit of everything under the sun: sonically, it contains a large choir in addition to the usual Petrels pallette. Released on 180g vinyl and on CD by the Denovali label.

Found sound and drone swamped plucked post rock guitars soundtrack-like album from the aptly(and excellently) named Melanchoholics.

William Basinski
Cascade

‘Cascade’ is the first new album release in over two years from classically trained musician and composer William Basinski. New York based Basinski has been working in experimental media for over thirty years, utilising ancient technologies to create haunting, melancholic soundscapes through tape loop compositions of long forgotten instruments. ‘Cascade’ is an oscillating undercurrent built out of a solitary, broken piano loop which is deconstructed through a process of feedback loops for the bonus track ‘The Deluge’.

Various
Dendrology

The people of Winchester don’t get masses of opportunities to see experimental music, but the occasional series of ‘Ology’ gigs make up for that by being extremely high calibre. This Dendrology CDr showcases one of those great line-ups, with Robert Curvengen, Plurals, Jennifer Allum and Stereocilia.

Bruce Ditmas
Yellow Dust

Progressive pop synthesist Bruce Ditmas began life as a teen prodigy jazz drummer in Miami Beach where he was raised until he was relocated to New York where he eventually met up with vocalist Joan La Barbara (later Mrs Morton Subotnick). La Barbara encouraged Ditmas in his experiments in heavy electronic rhythms and the potential of musical technology. ‘Yellow Dust’ is a compilation from Ditmas’s solo Moog/drum albums from 1977 using a Mini-Moog, an Arp 2600 and a variety of other processed, percussion instruments.
  • Vinyl LP (FKR078LP)

Berangere Maximin
Dangerous Orbits

Available on CD or double vinyl LP on Crammed Discs. Jeeez! Name dropping alone should grab you if you like any kind of drone or sound art. Berangere Maximin studied under Denis Dufour (GRM, and himself a pupil of Pierre Schaeffer), first album released on John Zorn’s Label, and on to collaborations with Fennesz, and Rhys Chatham. Needless to say, this is honed skill in sound collage and other worldly atmospherics.

Tyondai Braxton
HIVE1

Available on CD vinyl LP on Nonesuch. Former Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton is probably fed up of being described as such, after all he has many more “strings to his bow”. Having had many compositions played all over the world he has returned with his first solo outing since 2009. Whilst Central Market and his earlier work were vocal and string arrangement focus, Hive1 is a much more synthetic beast.

Gomila Park
Ununoctium / Gomila Park

Gomila Park, the newest output function for Carl Michael von Hausswolff (who recently also released one hell of a singular record with Leslie Winer) and Martin Rössel, is unpredictable to say the least. This self-titled release on the Ununoctium series is no exception, and the 12”’s three tracks from heavy rock to experimental electronics.

LabField
Bucket of Songs

Starting with a collection of sounds, Labfield slowly organizes their tracks, throwing in crazy, whispering, stalking, are-they-really-there? vocals over an otherwise pleasant polyrhythmic beat. Bucket of Songs features improv-scene favorites David Stackenals, Ingar Zach as well as new member Giuseppe Ielasi and offers tastes from all over the avant-garde taste pallet.

Nurse With Wound and Graham Bowers
Mutation.. The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum

Steven Stapleton’s wandering band of un-merry weirdoes / wyrdoes are here found collaborating with Graham Bowers. Mutation… The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum (a typical Nurse With Wound album title if ever I saw one) contains the post-industrial mysticism we’ve come to expect from the group, with a particular theme of insanity this time around. On Red Wharf.

Jarboe and Helen Money
Jarboe and Helen Money

Jarboe, formerly the eerie female side of Swans, teams up with Helen Money, the go-to avant-cellist of the out-rock underground. Truly, an exciting combo. Certainly this self-titled debut is heavy: Money’s distorted strings are often enormous. But Jarboe has a powerful way of cutting through noise with her eerie presence… On Aurora Borealis.

Exhaustion w/ Kris Wanders
Exhaustion w/ Kris Wanders

Scrappy no wave punx Exhaustion are friends with a saxophonist, named Kris Wanders, and here lies the inevitable conclusion of their acquaintanceship: a self-titled LP of music that goes slower and more patient. These are carefully considered improvisations, in a way, bringing together different styles and making space they can both exist in.

Group of the Altos
R U Person Or Not

Twelve piece avant-garde rock band from Milwaukee, Group Of Altos make their music by huddling together when drunk or angry or excited about thunder. They build themselves into a frenzy of expression through loud humming, heavy beats and blown out guitars. The result is a an instrumental intensity of beautiful human sound.

Sage Taylor
Parallels & Rhythms EP

New and unexplored territory from Zs. Xe is the new set of noises from the group in it's current 3 person format. Taking ideas of minimalism, the avant-garde, jazz fusion and an assortment of rhythmic concepts - they have woven a tapestry of sorts based around drums, percussion, the guitar and the saxophone. This is for fans of the future - so climb into the sonic space ship with an open mind. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Northern Spy.

Hiiragi Fukuda
Seacide

Two sides of cool improvised jams from Hiiragi Fukuda, one with guitar and one with a monophonic synth. A fun and playful sound, grabbed with whatever equipment was to hand, that also digs deep into spacey vibes. Seacide was first sighted on a limited cassette, so this proper vinyl / CD release on Trouble In Mind is most welcome.

Das Sombreros
The Lamp

Estranging music in all meanings of the word is the forte of Das Sombreros. They specialize in sounds that you may recognize, vaguely, like a bad dream you had last night and forgot about, but can’t quite place. And while you’re trying to figure out what happened and what didn’t, you are surprised by something new. That is The Lamp.

Yannick Dauby
Penghu Experimental Sound Studio Vol. 1

French sound composer Yannick Dauby spent several months in Peng-Hu (located in the Taiwan strait) composing this record which documents the environment using sounds of underwater fauna, waves shortwave radio and sounds collected from harbours. He used analog electronic instruments to create a haunting sketchbook of his time on the island. Like previous records (one where he collected the sound of frogs) it will appeal to fans of unusual sound collages.

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Two: Mississippi Moonchile

The second part of Matana Roberts' projected twelve-part jazz tapestry is an extremely confounding and yet gorgeously structured work, based around four-pronged suites of free jazz, operatic vocals, smooth spoken word narratives and gospel chants. The record rises and falls around these passages of music to show the personal and political implications of civil rights and racism in America.

We could just say Rune Grammofon and let your imagination run wild from there, but that'd be misleading: Albatrosh actually make jazz, and while 'Night Owl' is their second record on the experimental Norwegian label, it's their fifth on a long, steady career built on tenacious compositional structures and a melodic approach to playing.

This group comes together on the orders of one Michael Wertmueller, the part-composer, part-drummer who makes Full Blasts what it is. The & Friends part is thanks to the contributions of saxophonist Peter Brötzmann and e-bassist Marino Pliakas as well as clarinet player Ken Vandermark and additional percussionist Dirk Rothbrust. 'Sketches And Ballads' is equal parts loose and disciplined, moving between more prepared arrangements to lightning-fast blastbeats and moments of free-form.

Pan & Me
Ocean Noise

Pan & Me is in fact Christophe Mevel, a dark ambient artist who has previously made some seriously droning, evil jazz as part of the Dale Cooper Quartet. His solo project takes more from neo-classical than from jazz, bringing in electronic elements more formally to create a variety of sustained sounds, be they ambient pieces, field recordings or guitar abstractions. 'Ocean Noise' is his second record and suggests he's a man of many soundscapes.

Robert Curgenven
They Tore the Earth and, Like a Scar, It Swallowed Them

This vital emotive and academic work, entitled 'They Tore the Earth and, Like a Scar, It Swallowed Them', collects field recordings that document colonialism around Australia over the last twelve years, with instrumental work supplied by Robert Curgenven's arrangements trough pipe organ and guitar feedback. The tensions and violences of Australia's politics and landscapes are brought into full view in this startling experimental work.

Vampillia
Alchemic Heart

A self-described "brutal orchestra", Vampillia collects a noise artist from just about every walk of life you could ask for and chucks them in a single band: you've got members past and present from Boredoms, Swans and Inswarm in this thing, as well as freaking Merzbow. I could describe some of the instruments that actually go into comprising their orchestra, of course, because they are making arrangements -- with piano and strings and all those things -- but Vampillia is very much a noise project, and 'Alchemic Heart' is exactly what you want from these artists. The record is sliced into two twenty-plus minute songs respectively called "Sea" and "Land".

The Ski-A-Delics
Snow Bunny Bobby Katz and the Aspen-Aspirin

Now for something completely different.....a band from late '80's Boston who played ski's. Yup you read that right. Ski's. By stringing piano wire to the ski and mic-ing it up they managed to produce music from their sports implements coming up with a wholly unusual sound that sounds rather electronic in a funny kinda way.

The warmest of warm electronica. Sweet as a nut.

Dalglish
Dorcha Aigeann

Here's something that will sell out quickly. Chris Douglas's Dalglish project has long been a go to for visionary future thinking electronics and as our Ant says in a previous review "Just reading the words Dalglish and vinyl in the same sentence is enough to make hardcore electronic music fans salivate". The label describes this release as  "a web of splintering percussive patterns, arrhythmic textures and amorphous forms, titled in an asymmetrical variant of Scots Gaelic". Run of 300 copies. -On clear vinyl with white label. Enclosed in silkscreened PVC cover containing thumb cut slit.-Includes transparent film insert. -Contains two locked grooves at the conclusion of Side A and Side B.

This lo-fi bundle of joy, also known as 'Dream Boys', collates dream pop chords with droning samples and noisy, clipping distortion. It sounds thoroughly organic in every one of its incarnations.

Greg Gobel
Impermanence

Here is an album of experimental sound art from this Madrid based multi instrumentalist who has produced an ambitious album veering around between genres. He deals with love, death and all that shit across the course of these 14 songs. From the soundclip I'm listening to, he makes a right old racket too. Terrifying stuff.

Hadakanacht
Hadakanacht

A dejected cheese board of unease on this collaboration from Hadakanacht. This self-titled release of one part Merseyside to one part Sweden is pretty grim. It's overflowing with suspense and worry, sounding at times like a twisted nursery rhyme. The pair mix elements of lo-fi aesthetics with an expansive orchestral back drop. Out on cassette tape from Rest Relax Records.

Jozef Van Wissem
It's Time for You to Return

The dark, lute-driven folk of Josef Van Wissem found its place on the soundtrack for Jim Jarmusch's most recent evil vampire movie, but now it steps out on its own on this record where he seemingly thinks it's a good idea to rebrand himself as a vicar. These nine works see him working at a lethargic and mesmerising pace that entrances the listener. While based formally around Wissem as a lutenist, it also sees him as something of a conductor, with Jarmusch joining on guitar and Yasmine Hamdan on vocals.

Tlaotlon / Katie Gately
Split Series #23

These two rising artists share their playful and cerebral experiments with all on a dynamic 12" split for FatCat -- where pop songs go to meet an untimely end. Katie Gately meshes together found sounds with melodic precision, calling to mind the chilling ambience and resounding beauty of Julia Holter's 'Loud City Song'. Meanwhile, Tlaotlon offers bombastic IDM that makes you believe without exposition.

Lviv
Transmission One

Supposedly named after a Western Ukraine town, presumably in affectionate sympathy for the country's ongoing woes and struggle, this is a collaboration between Gareth Hardwick, Dan Layton & David Stockwell and some cinemaphiliac bods Kneel Before Zod. There's not a great deal of information I can muster up about this enigmatic unit other than they are enjoy putting on multi-media spectacles in the live arena and the sounds are of the "dark drone" variety. The only music for the decaying inert mess that is currently this country I suppose?

Wadada Leo Smith, Jamie Saft, Joe Morris, Balazs Pandi
Red Hill

An impressive quartet of free-expressive outsiders assemble here for an LP of intuitive fluid tranquility and aggressive skronk'n'plink free jazz. Avant-garde trumpet legend Wadada Leo Smith is central here, with Slobber Pup bandmates Jamie Saft, Joe Morris and the remarkable Hungarian percussionist Balasz Pandi fill the rest of the slots on keys, upright bass and drums respectively.

Science Fiction Park Bundesrepublik

'Science Fiction Park Bundesrepublik' offers scuzzy and mysterious ramblings from Felix Kubin inc. This time around he's gone out of his way to curate a compilation of speculatively DIY, amateurish and home-made recordings from Germany in the 1980s. This one's calling out for fans of mangled krautrock.

The American Avant-Garde in the 20th Century

This dual CD collection on LTM gathers together a cross section of the most prominent contemporary composers of the last century in America. Featuring Morton Feldman, Charles Ives and John Cage, the bastions of classical oddballery are showcased in their prime, including Cage's full Sonatas and Interludes.

Human Greed
World Fair

On his fifth record as Human Greed, Michael Begg continues to obsess and fantasize over the cruellest of themes, this time focusing on death, both on a personal and cosmic level. Influenced by 16th century composition, the record experiments with minimal sounds and chilling spoken poems; on "Waiting In A Car", he juxtaposes primitive keys with barely heard chimes and ascending strings which climax around vocal samples.

The Thomas Family
Dub Variations

Daniel Thomas and David Thomas are The Thomas Family, although confusingly they're not actually related. 'Dub Variations' is their first release under this moniker but they've worked together before as Hagman and TST and they also have three record labels between them, which seems a bit excessive for a duo but I'm not here to judge. Dave made some solo sketches on a modular synth, Dan made some field recordings in Hong Kong, and those sounds became the basis for this album of hypnotically rhythmic dub-inspired ambient textures.

Kink Gong
Gongs

Audio archivist Laurent "Kink Gong" Jeanneau is back with a new LP, a companion piece to this year's 'Gongs of Cambodia & Laos' collection which examined the various timbres and tones of gong orchestras of South East Asia. On 'Gongs' he takes this material and manipulates it into warped, deconstructed and distorted shapes, using computer modification alongside his sound collage and acoustic recordings.

Zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino
Live At Jahrhunderthalle Bochum

Avant noisemaker Keiji Haino joins forces with the equally warped visions of Zeitkratzer once more, the group responsible for bringing Lou Reed's 'Metal Machine Music' to life as an on-stage arrangement. On 'Live At Jahrhunderthalle Bochum', Haino ditches his putrid noise extravagances, refusing to use any electronics unless they're amplifying his voice. The music is minimal so that Haino's unique voice can be zoned in on.

The French Avant-Garde in the 20th Century

This ongoing archival project attempts to introduce a new wave of listeners to the composers that helped subvert expectations and show the middle finger to classical norms in France through the 20th century. It compiles artists such as Claude Debussy and Erike Satie (often thought to have produced some of the earliest "ambient" pieces with his piano work), as well as the composers who were only really in it so they could fuck shit up. Mr. Toilet himself -- also known as Duchamp -- is present, along with Desnos and Picabia. 'The French Avant-Garde In The 20th Century' shows how classical music started to metamorphose.

Braen Raskovich
Abnormal Sensations

This full length is the work of a trio of musicians, known by their aliases of Raskovich, Braen and Kema. They banded together back in 1973 to create 'Abnormal Sensations', a record that unitl now has been lost. The record fuses together avant-garde sounds resembling funk that's been abstracted and taken out of context. Kema's contribution is found in performing vocals without lyrics, adding to the uneasy drone aesthetic that permeates 'Abnormal Sensations'. Described as "freak funk", this record is not to be missed for those who enjoy being freaked out by new genres.

Family Fodder
Just Love Songs

‘Just Love Songs’ is a vinyl exclusive featuring 11 love songs by London collective Family Fodder. Often neglected and still existing within a veil of mystery, Family Fodder are perhaps best known for their oddball hit ‘Dinosaur Sex’ which is still considered a post-punk classic today. Limited to 500 copies, the songs have been collected from previous Family Fodder recordings, but with the omission of instrumentals, dubs and solos. This is the first time these songs have been released on vinyl, and you can expect all kinds of love here: from nostalgic love to the love of the unknown and unfamiliar, ‘Just Love Songs’ is essential listening for any loved-up music fan.
