Rachel Zeffira
Elizabeth Harvest (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Rachel Zeffira is primarily an oboe player, however, she’s also a soprano and can turn her hand to a number of other instruments. What's more, she was in Cats Eyes with Faris Badwan of The Horrors. Her classical background made her an ideal candidate to take on the score for the Sebastian Gutierrez film, Elizabeth Harvest. Using Erik Satie’s Sarabande as a thematic base, the score becomes less conventional and more experimental as it progresses. Clear vinyl LP on Invada.

Baby Dee
Love's Small Song

Baby Dee’s third LP Love’s Small Song gets reissued courtesy of Tin Angel (Polar Bear, Pick A Piper). The 2002 record remains a uniquely moving piece of avant-garde songwriting. While the first part is made up of delicate baroque pop numbers that preclude the successes of Antony And The Johnsons, Love’s Small Song’s second disc is a 55-minute piece of birdsong recordings.

Machinefabriek
With Voices

Tireless timbral titillator Machinefabriek crackles his way onto Western Vinyl with an album of various human voices variously manipulated and recomposed into a shifting soundscape. Whose various voices, you ask? Those of Peter Broderick, Richard Youngs, Marissa Nadler and Zero Years Kid, for instance.

Jakob Thorkild
Devotional

With his new LP Devotional the Danish composer/guitarist Jakob Thorkild brings the curtain down on half a decade of work. This album completes the Grenzgänger trilogy that began with 2014’s Art Sleaze. Here Thorkild is joined by singer Anna Mose and electric violinist Andrea Rebecca Alsted for a record of potent minimal-classical compositions. The title of the Devotional is an apt one - many of the tracks here hover at the edge of religious and spiritual music in a manner that recalls Arvo Pärt.

Kane Software
dda666

Kane Software’s resident saxophonist and Don’t Drone Alone’s resident pen-pusher is a certain Robin Smith former dogsbody for Norman Records™  - writer of about a billion of these blurbs over the years.  Robin - and your fellow partner-in-Kane Matthew, for that matter - I’m not gonna give it to you how you want. No, I’m not. I’m not gonna spend the whole description referring to your band as Harry Kane Software or wondering why it doesn't sound like Travis. You see, this cassette, full of screeching drones and ghoulish digital meltdowns, is very good value at £4.99. However, we think they have missed a trick at not pricing it at £6.66.

Hugh Marsh
Violinvocations

I bloody love a portmanteau me. Up their with most fun you can have with words so let me say you Hugh Marsh. You have my attention. In how it was made Violinvocations is essentially shoegaze reimagined for the violin, but the result is more abstract than that. Strange sounds merge and swell from gentler ambience to something more distorted. This is long way from his prior work with the likes of Hans Zimmer and Iggy Pop.

Tolley & Dara
Cutheart

Jazz bass, synth and percussion improvisations you say? Well. step right up for Cutheart by Aussie couple, Tolley & Dara. The album has been pieced together from a bunch of live improvised recordings made in 1979. David Tolley is a renowned Australian jazz bassist who has played one album by The Brian Brown Quartet and also formed Ex- with Gong’s Daevid Allen. He also brings a rack of analogue synths to this party. Dure Dara is a percussionist who dabbles in everything hitable from the normal to the exotic. Limited edition reissue LP on The Roundtable.

Tim Hecker
Konoyo

Master sonic architect Tim Hecker returns to Kranky with an album which takes inspiration from conversations with a recently departed buddy. 'Konoyo' was mostly recorded in a Japanese temple just outside Tokyo in collaboration with gagaku ensemble Tokyo Gakuso. Hecker manipulates their source sounds (strings, woodwinds, percussion) and re-shapes and sculpts the raw material into his own vision, focussing on negative space. The resulting sombre mood has a ritual/ceremonial weight - as though he were channelling communications from the great beyond.

MKWAJU ensemble
MKWAJU

Over the past couple of years the We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want label have formed a strong bond with Japanese composer Midori Takada. As well as giving new life to Takada’s Through The Looking Glass and Lunar Cruise LPs the label has also taken a shine to the work of Takada’s Mkwaju Ensemble group. After reissuing the band's 1981 record KI-Motion back in June WRWTFWW have now come through with a new edition of MKWAJU (also 1981). The record sees the group collaborating with a young Joe Hisaishi, an artist you may well know from his work scoring several of the Studio Ghibli films. This music is a busy, rhythmically-driven offshoot of Takada’s vibrant post-minimalist xylophone explorations. Well worth a listen.

François Dufrêne
Cri-Rythmes

From French sound-poet, François Dufrêne, Cri-Rhythmes are recordings of Dufrêne swallowing his recording equipment and then vomiting it back up. It creates a gargled, sinister soundtrack like some of Morricone's darker giallo horror work - although comparing il maestro to swallowing a microphone might be a bit far...

Tom Richards
Pink Nothing

Create an unholy mix between Ryoji Ikeda and Jan Jelinek and you may end up with Tom Richards. Lots of bleeps, abstract beats, every single sound extremely electronic. Probably something you outsider-electronica lovers will eat right up. Pink Nothing is an oddly satisfying safari into an electric wasteland.

Gri + Mosconi
Between Ocean and Sky

There seems to be a lot of excellent ambient, drone and soundscape coming out of Italy at the moment. Here, Francis M. Gri and Federico Mosconi come together to create Between Ocean and Sky, which is the third in the Slowcraft Presents series. Created between Milan and Verona, the album is an indefinable sound of ethereal beauty and underlying dread.

Oren Ambarchi, Crys Cole, Leif Elggren
Certainly

This unholy alliance between Oren Ambarchi (AUS), Crys Cole (CAN) and Leif Elggren (SWE) took place at a residency in Stockholm’s EMS Studios in 2016. The story goes that the harsh winds blew off the windows, prompting the trio to take desperate measures to stay warm and record. Sounds more like a contact mic passing through a cow’s intestines to me. It’s a good sound.

Mołr Drammaz
Times Before Emojis

The Polish underground is one of the most hyperactive in the world. Mołr Drammaz have been a crucial part of this underground since 1994, in ever-shifting permutations. ‘Times Before Emojis Came’ compiles material from many of the involved artists, it’s a sound genuinely unpredictable, both dank and ecstatic. From entwined rhythmic jams to liquidated electronics, this is experimental without pretence.

Heinali
Anthem

Oleg Shpudeiko has suggested that the existence of this album is linked to a therapeutic journey of recovery from emotional darkness. Given the depth of emotion present in the rich sonic world it presents, this is easy to imagine. The album utilises various methods of production and structuring, blending techniques from Shpudeiko’s modern-classical work with approaches to composition you might find on a film soundtrack. The electronic elements are prominent, with circular repetitions bringing the work close to the very outer reaches of techno and more ambient forms of noise, sat comfortably in the world of soundscape-informed music alongside Abul Mogard or Ben Frost.

Among his solo albums is Radio Wave Surfer, a delightful 1991 release that was all recorded live, in studios and at concerts, with only one stereo mic: none of that Can studio trickery here! Reissued now by Grönland.

Yximalloo
The Best of Yximalloo 1

Yximalloo is a man on a street in Tokyo, who has been busy doing his own thing for many years. ‘His own thing’ tends to equate to weird and warped versions of techno, psych and much besides, but really we should just call his genre Yximalloo music. This self-assembled best of LP collection makes a splendid introduction.

48 Cameras
Chosen Songs

48 Cameras are a musical collective spread throughout Belgium, UK and Netherlands. Their music is varied and due to the way they work, some members have never even met each other. This has been going on since 1984. Martyn Bates of Eyeless in Gaza, Andy Cairns of Therapy? and Swans Michael Gira have all played their part in the project in the past. Chosen Songs looks like it may be a retrospective of their best moments. LP on Stroom.

Brigitte Fontaine & Areski Belkacem
Vous et Nous

The 1977 collaborative LP between avant-garde luvvies Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belkacem gets reissued by Kythibong (The Healthy Boy, Deerhoof). There’s an awful lot going on on Vous et Nous. Everything from French medieval music to post-Reich phasing experiments to North African folk styles get a look in here. No wonder Stereolab cite this record as a major influence.

ElpH vs Coil
Worship The Glitch

More Coil!!! If you like the stuff they do on purpose but feel like you're missing out on their accidents, then this is the release for you. ElpH as it turns out is not another artist, but the name they gave to the spirit causing their equipment to glitch. And on Worship the Glitch, they do just that. Harnessing the mistakes to make something spectral.

Roger Doyle
Oizzo No

The Irish composer’s ultra-rare 1975 debut is a wonderland of head-spinning tape collage, densely dissonant strings, and woozily detuned pianos, where uilleann pipes meet the avant garde. There’s a strong Uncle Meat-era Mothers of Invention flavour in the copious tape-speed manipulation, tricksy melodies and echoes of Edgard Varèse. Though Doyle was signed to U2’s short-lived Mother Records, it’s more useful to note his appearance on the Nurse With Wound list, and their label United Dairies.

Oliver Kearns
Amelioration

Pianist and field recordist Oliver Kearns has spun together a number of different threads to form the 67 minute Amelioration. An album that completely washes over you, before slowly revealing it's depth and variety. The space within its ambience is made real by free jazz inspired drumming. On Aphelion Editions.

Bjarni Gunnarsson
Lueur

Not gonna lie, the heart of this particular description writer sinks when he gets a record in by an ‘Icelandic sound artist/composer’. You can thank the Olafur Arnaldses and Sigur Roses of this world for eroding any confidence he once had in that particular phrase. As such, his hopes weren’t high for Bjarni Gunnarsson’s Lueur LP. So consider him pleasantly surprised when it turned out that the four tracks here were a damn sight better than the self-congratulatory hold music of his peers. This is challenging, unsettling electroacoustic composition that uses every inch of the speakers.

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards more experimental textures with acid/free jazz textures and spoken word narratives. They've been working on this since 1992 so it's about time we all dipped in.
