Dag Rosenqvist
Vowels

Dag Rosenqvist has been something of a serial collaborator over the years, but has recently reverted to droning under his own name. Vowels was made to accompany a contemporary dance performance, but holds onto its power even when played alone. Released as a very fetching clear vinyl LP in a limited edition, on the memorably titled Awkward Formats imprint.

Duane Pitre
Bayou Electric

Academic drone-artist and former pro skateboarder (seriously) Duane Pitre returns with Bayou Electric. Completing the trilogy started by his last two records, this piece is built up around a field recording rich with personal resonance, around which the sonic resonances of the ensemble were built. On Important Records.

Blurt
Beneath Discordant Skies

Blurt is one of the longest-running and highest-profile projects of Ted Milton, an alto-saxophonist and existential poet. The art-rock crew have been highly productive over the years, but Beneath Discordant Skies represents their first full-length collection in half a decade. Plenty of time to brew some powerful experimental skronk numbers. On Salamander.

Various
Ixtab Compilation Series, Volume 1

The first of what is promised to be several compilations, Ixtab Compilation Series, Volume 1 has tracks by Interbrain, Samoln, Idea Fire Company and BRRR, and Empfänger. A wild variety of names and a wild variety of cosmic disco sounds. A groovy, colourful compilation on Monofonus Press, limited to 300 copies.

Anneli Drecker
Rocks & Straws

Anneli Drecker (Bel Canto, Røyksopp) began her prolific music career in the 80s, age 17, when she left her Norwegian hometown of Tromsø with Bel Canto band members Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere) and Nils Johansen. Following a host of high profile collaborations and huge successes in the indie, electro pop scene, Drecker returns to her roots with ‘Rocks And Stones’, an album inspired by her arctic hometown based on lyrics by the North Norwegian cult poet Arvid Hanssen.

Ian Drennan
Flower of Love

Flower of Love is the third in a trio of contemplative albums by Ian Drennan. 2013’s Prelude to Bleu Bird Cabaret and and 2012’s Underwater Peoples make up the rest of the cycle. Drennan creates spacious soundscapes that are more expansive than his previous work. An equal mix of soothing and unsettling that fans of Carl Stone and Coil my find appealing.

Akira Sakata & Jim O'Rourke With Chikamorachi & Merzbow
Flying Basket

Saxophonist Akira Sakata presents a furious five-way assault jam in conjunction with guitarist Jim O'Rourke and Chikamorachi (aka drummer Chris Corsano and double bassist/percussionist Darin Gray) with the added bonus of analogue electronics courtesy of Japanese overlord Masami Akita aka Merzbow.

Grischa Lichtenberger
La Demeure; Il Y A Peril En La Demeure

Grischa Lichtenberger releases La Demeure: Il Y A Peril En La Demeure, a record of fucked-up beat tracks and unusually-structured electronic business. The press release even invokes Kafka, so it has to be having at least one listen right? Released as a CD on the aesthetically firm Raster Norton label.

Aisha Orazbayeva & Tim Etchells
Sleeping Through

This EP is the first fruit of an intimate new collaboration between Aisha Orazbayeva and Tim Etchells, pushing violin and voice into an intense, sometimes uncomfortable space together. Sleeping Through is challengingly minimal but powerfully performed. Vinyl LP released in a limited edition on the Prah Recordings label.

Raccoglimento Parziale
Homoheterogeneity

Haunting, busy and a little bit clinical, Homoheterogeneity is a complex and at times beautiful record from Raccoglimento Parziale. Formed by Stefano Meucci and Andrea Giachetti this dense piece of work bristles with field recordings, electronic pulses and unique touches of guitar. Out on vinyl LP from AUT Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Experimental / Avant-garde / Sound Art / Field

Ricardo Donoso
Machine To Machine

Ricardo Donoso works across a variety of styles, from more conventionally tuneful to out-there experimentalism. With Machine To Machine he tries to meld the two approaches, and he does a great job. These tracks are carefully composed explorations of texture with a rich seam of emotional content running right down the middle. On Denovali Records.

Gary Wilson
Music for Piano

Gary Wilson is an experimental musician from Endicott, New York. His best known work is 1977’s You Think You Really Know Me after which he stopped recording and playing live. He started making music again in 2003. His fans are generally attracted to his lyrics which is strange for someone so experimental. Music For Piano, however is mostly instrumental, the closing track, I Love Gary being the exception. It is one of his most avant-garde recordings and was originally recorded around a similar time as You Think You Really Know Me.

Lumisokea
Mnemosyne

Drone time baby! Not just any old drones though: Lumisokea have been working with recordings of such resonant acoustic instruments as gamelan and cello, and have processed and re-engineered them into the pieces you hear on Mnemosyne. Detailed electroacoustic sound caverns, pressed to vinyl on the Alter label.

Lord Real
Bad Code EP

Lord Real is a Norwegian lady who is now resident in the UK. Bad Code EP is a paradoxically focused yet unsettled work that has been likened to an imaginary lo-fi jam session between Aphex Twin, Earth’s Dylan Carson and artist Russell Haswell. The recording will make you question your hearing but Zones, the label responsible for this release, would like to assure you that it’s working just fine. Cassette only, limited to 50 copies.

Loren Connors
Live In New York

The US avant guitarist Loren Connors further consolidates his legendary status with a self-explanatory live outing. As usual, the blues hovers spectrally over proceedings while the guitarist's inventive and diverse technique recalls fellow masters including Robert Johnson, Ry Cooder and Keiji Haino to Robert Fripp, Bill Frisell and John McLaughlin.
  • Genre(s):
  • Experimental / Avant-garde / Sound Art / Field

Jono El Grande
Melody Of A Muddled Mason

Jono El Grande is an unusual artist, creating pieces that straddle modern composition, smooth prog rock, shiny pop and a few other styles without ever settling into any of them. Impressively, this kind of works, El Grande’s extremely complex arrangements all falling tightly into place. Melody Of A Muddled Mason is released by Rune Grammofon.
  • Genre(s):
  • Experimental / Avant-garde / Sound Art / Field

Benedict Drew
Notes On The Anxiety Of A Record Running Out

Benedict Drew is an artist who works across various platforms such as sound, video and associated electronics, sculpture and performance art. Expect experimental and avant-garde sounds on his new 7”, Notes On The Anxiety Of A Record Running Out which is backed with Notes On The Filling Of Gaps.

TVO & Andrew Sharpley
CBK Robots

An interesting record here, with release timed for the announcement of the winner of the Labour Leadership election. There is a reason for that too: CBK Robots warps and manipulates the speech of the candidates into new, slightly spooky forms. TVO & Andrew Sharpley have made a statement both interesting to hear about and interesting to listen to. On Broken20.

Mike Cooper
Light On A Wall

Fancy something a bit different? Well you'd better be quick as there are only 100 copies of this! Light On The Wall is the new album from Mike Cooper. The songs were improvised by Cooper singing and playing electric lap steel guitar and he used the William Burroughs cut-up method to construct the lyrics from the Thomas Pynchon novels, Gravity’s Rainbow and V. It was recorded live on Radio Lebanon. Due to the improvised nature of the songs, there are other recorded versions that sound completely different. The album features one cover that was not improvised, Bob Dylan’s Masters Of War.

  • Experimental / Avant-garde / Sound Art / Field

Natural Snow Buildings
Terror's Horns

Very exciting times as a brand new Natural Snow Buildings announce a new record on Ba Da Bing! Terror's Horns is a relatively brief excursion for the duo, and is a little less droney than most past efforts. The vocals can recall bleak English folk, but the music is a wonderful, multi-faceted blur. Gorgeous stuff.

Human Greed
Hivernant

Human Greed is a collaboration between sound artist Michael Begg and painter Deryk Thomas. Hivernant is described as a “political statement” in the press release but Begg admits that he doesn’t know what that statement is trying to say. Well, the sounds on the album create great expanses and are both restrained but also epic in how they play to a soundtrack type of aesthetic. Some blissed out sound.

Benjamin Finger
x​-​ray three: Amorosa Sensitiva

Deep, atmospheric ambience here from Benjamin Finger. x-ray three: Amorosa Sensitiva uses synthesisers and a number of acoustic instruments to provide the basis of his compositions, but from that point on, processing and electronics stretch these sounds out into intriguing landscapes. Frosted clear vinyl on the Blue Tapes label.

Johnny Kafta Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra
Johnny Kafta Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra

Johnny Kafta Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra is an unusual project name isn't it? I guess Johnny Kafta really hates vegetarians…? Well, whether he does or not, the self-titled album of this group of his expresses strong vibes of free-rock, honed carefully (through improvisation) in the Lebanon. LP on Discrepant.

Alif
Aynama-Rtama

Alif are a five-person musical collective, combining Oud, Buzuq, bass, keyboards and drums. Oh and poetic vocals as well of course. Aynama-Rtama displays their far-reaching sound to full effect, a highly-rhythmic flurry of Arab-origin sound. The music comes packaged with full English translations of lyrics and poems used. On Nawa Recordings.

Paul Smith & The Intimations
Contradictions

Four years in the making, ‘Contradictions’ is the latest record release by Maximo Park leader Paul Smith. The project, which began life on the road, draws in influences far and wide from the charms of the North East to the gritty sounds of Brooklyn and shows a more vulnerable side to this dynamic lone wolf of pop.

Liberez
All Tense Now Lax

All Tense Now Lax is a busy, tightly plotted work of tough-to-classify sound, piling up acoustic instruments, snatches of human voice, abstract electronics, field recordings and more, all deftly processed by Liberez main man John Hannon. Things get pretty intense. Released as CD or LP, on the Night School label.

Florestano
Noh

Florestano is an Italian producer who combines the modern-day vibing of the traveller with the electroacoustics of the mid-20th century. Most of the work on Noh is electronically produced, but Florestano reportedly begins each composition with a piano, so tune is as highly valued as texture. 2LP on Kowloon Records.

Matthew Atkins
Geometric Decay

Matthew Atkins has been rummaging around at the bottom of a dusty old sonic cupboard and pulled out all manner of bits and pieces of audio detritus (or at least so it seems). The consequences of his processed and re-worked finds are presented on Geometric Decay, as a series of abstract soundscapes. On Minimal Resource Manipulation.

Conrad Schnitzler
Kollektion 05: Compiled By Thomas Fehlmann

Conrad Schnitzler was a vital member of Germany’s kraut / komische exploratory synth generation, playing with Tangerine Dream and forming Kluster, not to mention an ocean of other solo and collaborative works. With so much material, we should be grateful to Thomas Fehlmann for compiling Kollektion 05, which he has montaged into a seamless and remarkable whole.

But now you don’t need to fork out millions for a copy, as Arc Light Editions are reissuing it. Ripe for new discovery.

Vault of Blossomed Ropes
Vault of Blossomed Ropes

Vault of Blossomed Ropes is a rather well named project thoughtfully exploring electroacoustic avenues, but with the rare addition of vocals murmuring (and sometimes gibbering) actual lyrics; although they are, literally, all Greek to me. This self-titled album, with its six tracks, is released by the Triple Bath label.

Ekoplekz / Onme
Split

This CD captures some of the emanations from the studio of Ekoplekz, aka Nick Edwards. As always, the tracks slip through the cracks of various electronic music scenes and manage to sound just like Ekoplekz: dubby, bass-heavy, synthed-up sound explorations for the curious. Plus the nigh-on unknown Onme. Split CD on last Foundation.
