Midday Moon, Ambient and Experimental Recordings from Australia & New Zealand 1980 - 1995

Aussie label Bedroom Suck brings us Midday Moon, an excellent new double-LP comp of ambient and experimental musics out of Australia and New Zealand taken from the period of 1980 to 1995. The recordings have origins on various micro-labels, private pressings and the artists' own personal archives. Melbourne DJ / archivist Rowan 'Sanpo Disco' Mason has delved deep into a largely uncelebrated world of latter twentieth-century Aussie New Age and beyond. And we're glad he did. 

Yoko Ono
Warzone

Warzone by 85 year-old Yoko Ono sees the avant-garde artist stripping back thirteen songs from her career between 1970-2009. The songs carried messages in their lyrics that seem all too relevant now. By stripping the instrumentation back, the lyrics come to the fore and her messages, sometime encouraging, sometimes cautious, are clearer than ever before. LP and Cd on Chimera Music.

Loren Connors
Unaccompanied Acoustic Guitar Improvisations Vol. 10

Loren Connors has been a prolific maker and documenter of guitar music for many years now; across at least a hundred records spanning four decades in fact. Here is the latest volume -- the tenth! -- a continuation of his unaccompanied acoustic guitar improvisations; he made a series of 9 solo acoustic records under the name of Loren Mazzacane between 1979 and 1980. His delta and country blues style is sounding as spectral and distinctive as it ever did. Limited edition LP on Blank Forms with hand-assembled art covers.

Kurt Wagner & Gregor Schwellenbach
Flotus Movements

Flotus Movements features two reworked songs from Lambchop’s album, Flotus. Lambchop’s main man, Kurt Wagner performed the tracks at the Week-end festival in Cologne in 2016 with local musicians. Here, both tracks are collaborations with electronic musician, Gregor Schwellenbach. 7" single on Galerie.

Son Palace
Before The Rapids

Low-profiled UK musician Geoff Cooke emerges from his shed with a second Son Palace full-length. Before the Rapids follows on from 2016’s Accumulations with another playlist of lovely lo-fi instrumentals for mainly guitar, piano, glockenspiel and percussion. Reminds a bit of early The Boats, or the sorts of cosy-tronica you used to hear on labels such as Benbecula.

Thighpaulsandra
The Lepore Extrusion

Originally released on a limited run by Brainwashed Recordings in 2006, Thighpaulsandra’s The Lepore Extrusion gets reissued by Klanggalerie.(Konstruktivists, Nurse With Wound). It’s a typically unusual work from the Coil/Julian Cope collaborator, with main affair ‘The Leport Extrusion’ a single piece that shifts between spacey drones and vocal-led concrete ala Karlheinz Stockhausen. This new pressing comes with a bonus track.

Heinali
Iridescent

A new full-length album from busy Ukrainian sound-worker Oleg Shpudeiko, aka Heinali. Iridescent is mostly crafted out of modular synth improvisations, some of which are then reworked and re-ordered to created the finished pieces we hear here. Sometimes deep in ambient drifts, and sometimes pumping beats, this material is always strong for those who like some electronic adventure.

The Necks
Body

You know how the Necks do. Wake up. Get the coffee on. Simultaneously improvise instrumental gold. Another day. The wonderful and surprisingly dense Unfold was their last record and it came out on LP; now in typical Necks fashion they're releasing a CD only called Body, relying on the usual and ever-so trusty combination of piano, bass and drums -- though percussionist Tony Buck is said to really go out on a limb with some guitar excursions on this one.

Recyclopedia Britannica

People Like Us’ 2002 compilation gets a reissue courtesy of Discrepant sub-label Sucata Tapes (Gonzo, Tomas Tello). The excellently-titled Recyclopedia Britannica chronicles PLU mastermind Vicki Bennett’s zany experiments in sound collaging. It’s often wacky, often weird, and always entertaining. Imagine Oval, Pram and Karlheinz Stockhausen all together and having fun. What a thought.

MKWAJU ensemble
KI-Motion

An unknown classic, KI-Motion is some of the finest percussion work you'll likely hear. Rhythms made meditative and minimalist, the MKWAJU Ensembl explored fertile ground in the world of ambience, influenced by the membership of legendary percussionist Midori Takada. A resonant masterstroke.

Barry Adamson
Moss Side Story

Barry Adamson’s records are getting the reissue treatment thanks to Mute. Adamson is currently a member of Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds and formerly a member of Magazine and The Birthday Party, so major alt-heritage runs through his veins. Moss Side Story offers a taste of his solo craftings, making the soundtrack to film that doesn’t exist.

Holger Czukay
Der Osten Ist Rot

Holger Czukay, core member of the crucial German experimental group Can, went on to produce a considerable quantity of weird and wonderful pop. Der Osten ist Rot (‘The East is Red’ as indeed it was in those days) is his fourth solo album, dating from 1984, and it is awash with humour, grooves, and all-round subversive life energy. Reissued by the Grönland label.

Holger Czukay
Rome Remains Rome

Holger Czukay, core member of the crucial German experimental group Can, also created weird and wonderful pop / krautrock music of his own. On 1987’s Rome Remains Rome, he has assistance not only from Can drummer Jaki Leibezeit, but also from Public Image Limited etc.’s Jah Wobble, plus a well-dropped sample of Pope John Paul II on one track. Fun stuff! Reissued on Grönland.

Muunduja

Estonian violinist and vocalist Maarja Nut joins producer Ruum. Her airy voice and subtle violin create quiet lakes of sound, while Ruum’s electronic soundscapes seem to paint the depths that lie below. Muunduja is a haunting and reflective effort, out on FatCat, one of the finest world-pop/indietronica labels.

Foodman
Aru Otoko No Densetsu

Sun Araw’s Sun Ark imprint welcomes leftfield joker-juker Foodman for a new long-player of baffling, sample-shuffling rhythmscapes and a booklet of colourful drawings with the vinyl version. His tendency towards uncrowded layers of rubber-pitched samples plundered from all over and an overall sense of complete carefree delight prevail throughout.

David Sylvian & Holger Czukay
Plight & Premonition Flux & Mutability

The man once dubbed the Most Beautiful Man In The World...and ...er.. David Sylvian collaborated way back in the mid '80s on these two LPs in Can's home place of Koln in bleak midwinter. At the time record companies weren't bothered about such esoteric collaborations so now is a good time to revisit what the pair were up to. These beatless almost airless ambient albums  have now been collected together on a much needed re-issue and remastered for hopefully a more welcoming world.

Arve Henriksen
The Height Of The Reeds

In a work specially commissioned for Hull City of Culture 2017, Arve Henriksen relates to the love-affair-on-the-waves between Scandinavia and the hitherto unheralded Yorkshire port-town on The Height Of The Reeds. Composed alongside Elvind Aarset and Jan Bang, the music accompanied a sound walk last year, to be listened to crossing the Humber; all 15,000 tickets sold out. Jez Riley French's field recordings taken from the site provide added local detail and context and the voices and orchestra of Opera North with Norwegian poetry from Nils Christian Moe-Repstad feature. Available on CD, or LP plus CD from Rune Grammophon.

Arve Henriksen
Composograph

Earlier this year a mere digital download courtesy of Henriksen himself, the tireless Norwegian’s Composograph finds itself bumped into the Rune Grammofon roster proper alongside new album The Height of the Reeds. Comprising material from the same string quartet sessions that yielded The Nature of Connections in 2014, these are similar arrangements, but a touch gloomier, chillier and creepier.

Peter Zummo
Dress Code (Don't Look At My Car)

Arthur Russell collaborator and NYC trombone talent Peter Zummo’s new album is a halfway house between composition and improvisation, with Zummo’s group given plenty of room to explore. The finished results on Dress Code (Don’t Look At My Car) are hybrids assembled from multiple versions of each track, and the whole thing has a strong, strange, woozy feel. Yum. Out on Optimo.

Lonnie Holley
MITH

The legendary Lonnie Holley returns with Mith. It's an album filled with righteous fire aimed at the chaos and injustice of American life. His impassioned spoken word delivery gives topics like Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter the weight they deserve. As does the beefy instrumentation: wild drums, blasting horns, and always his own distinct piano improvisations. From the music to its lyrics, this is vital.

R.S. Pearson
Reality from Childhood Remembered as a Dream

First active in the early 1980s Seattle underground, experimental composer R. S. Pearson finally gets to cross “Get an official release with a label” off his to-do list. Collected for vinyl by Serendip Lab, these various short, charming works of arpeggio sequences and sound design also dabble in algorithmic/generative composition and strange, ambiguous moods. Just what you’d hope for from titles such as ‘Dinosaurs in Water’ and ‘Water Jets of Ancient Disney’.

Air Traffic Control Quartet
Blue Raspberry

A blue raspberry. That'll be the day. What a time to be alive, indeed. Air Traffic Control Quartet is an avant-garde prankster's delight, a chase scene happening in a maze, parkour performed in an MC Escher painting. Using obscured melodies, harpsichords, storm samples and weird film motifs, this record truly has something, a bit broken, for everyone. Collage delirium.

Emergence

Kate Carr’s Flaming Pines (The Boats, Xu) presents an intriguing compilation of experimental fare from Vietnam. Emergence makes a compelling case for more light to be shone on a scene - and a nation - whose music is often passed over by Western listeners. There are compelling piano pieces (Do Tan Si’s ‘The Morning Seems So Strange Today’), droning tape ambiences reminiscent of Yves Tumor (‘Sound Awakener’ by Duskiness), Oval-esque sound experiments from Parallel Asteroid and plenty more on the ten tracks here.

Jean-Luc Guionnet & Daichi Yoshikawa
Intervivos

Fierce collaboration between Jean-Luc Guionnet, working his extended technique saxophone, and Daichi Yoshikawa with his fiery feedback systems. As you might expect, the pair serve up an uncompromising web of sharp-edged improvised sound, packed full of textures, tones, and timbre clash. Intervivos is released on vinyl by Empty Editions.

Heather Leigh
Throne

Editions Mego (Shit & Shine, Oren Ambarchi) drop the latest LP from Heather Leigh (once known as Heather Leigh Murray). Throne is a record of singer-songwriter noir full of dark energy. Leigh commands her tracks with a smouldering intensity that is reminiscent of Wild Beasts’ Hayden Thorpe. The instrumentals also have something of that group about them, though it’s less ‘Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants’ and more the Grouper-ish murk of Present Tense’s ‘New Life’ or Two Dancers’ ‘Underbelly’.

Ipek Gorgun
Ecce Homo

Turkish sound artist Ipek Gorgun signs with Touch for her second LP. Ecce Homo is a record of lush, large, sometimes abrasive electro-acoustic music. It swings from moments of grandiose granular synthesis to experiments with distortion to majestic drones - and that’s all within the space of opener ‘Neroli’. Despite the frequent changes of pace Ecce Homo never feels rushed. Equivalent creators include Yves Tumor and The Haxan Cloak.
