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.

Tim Catlin & Machinefabriek
Whorls

Australian native Tim Catlin and Machinefabriek, aka Dutch sound artist and musician Rutger Zuydervelt have collaborated for the third time to bring Whorls into the world. Whorls is an effervescent and captivating collection of droning guitar and ambient soundscapes. Whorls is available on heavyweight vinyl LP on Low Point.

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.

Dirk Serries & Rutger Zuydervelt

Rutger Zuyderveldt, minimal drone expert extraordinaire, also known as Machinefabriek and Piiptsjilling, once again teaming up with a crazy sound explorer: this time it's Dirk Serries, known for Microphonics. Together they have created Buoyant, four tracks have that deep, all-encompassing heavy slowness we’ve come to love.

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.

Zu
Cortar Todo

‘Cortar Todo’ is the new full length album by Italian, experimental instrumentalists Zu, released on California based, independent label Ipecac Recordings. Recorded in the heart of the Bologna countryside in the summer of 2014 the album features a host of guest artists including Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia, known for his collaborations with Mike Watt, David Grubbs and Rokia Traore and keyboard player Joey Karam of The Locust.

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

‘The Parallels & Rhythms’ EP is Portland composer Sage Taylor’s second release on Dutch label Shimmering Moods Records. The A side is a perfectly flawed and serene work of ambient, blissed out peacefulness while the two B sides are both warm and hazy summer time tracks. Very limited edition with no repress.

Zs
Xe

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.

Ricardo Donoso
Sarava Exu

Available on 180 gram 12” vinyl LP with special 3D print in various colors with download code included, as well as CD digipak. Brazilian composer Ricardo Donoso who currently lives in Boston draws on his disparate compositional projects of Scuba Death and Ehnahre to create these violently evolving dark pieces which you could neatly file alongside Demdike Stare and Raime.

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. 

William Ryan Fritch
Revisionist

Available on CD, and vinyl LP presented in a bound jacket alongside matte printed artwork limited to 300 copies. William Ryan Fritch pushes his highly cinematic blend of modern classical and world music which, in a strange way, is simultaneously pleasant and overbearing. Suits the Lost Tribe Sound label down to a T!

Albatrosh
Night Owl

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.

Plastic Palace People
From The Host of Late-Comers

Jim O’Rourke keeps on slipping them out, sneaking releases like this one out underneath your very nose… Plastic Palace People is the name of his long-term duo with Christoph Heeman, and the two collaborate so well that who’s making which sounds is hard to say… As enigmatic and enticing a piece of audio as that painted cover suggests.

Sonore
Cafe OTO

This is a recording of Peter Brotzmann, Ken Vandermark and Mats Gustafsson all blowing horns at Cafe Oto in April 2011 culminating in a particularly windy night across north-east London. Originally broadcast on Jazz on 3. I wonder if anyone in the audience was shushed as happened to me the last two times I attended Cafe Oto?  

tetema
Geocidal

A high-concept attempt to break down geographical barriers from supergroup of sorts Tetema. A collaboration between Mike Patton and Anthony Pateras, Geocidal looks at the death of place, finding beauty in cacophony and uniquely orchestrated curveballs. Featuring no less than twelve musicians it’s a richly textured work of exotica. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Ipecac.

Full Blast & Friends
Sketches and Ballads

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. 

Maurizio Bianchi / M.B
Untitled 1980 / Untitled 2013

CD on Important Records. Gritty industrial noise produced from a single Korg MS20 synthesizer by Italian pioneer Maurizio Bianchi. Recorded and originally released in 1980 this release contains the original recordings as well as four new compositions, recorded in 2013, based on the original material.

Difficult to pin down debut album from Acolytes. With guest appearances from D. Aird (Vindicatrix) and D. Bolger (The Pheromoans), Acolytes mixes tribal rhythms with 8-bit bleeps and stop-start song structures to intriguing effect. If Ensemble Economique was born in London. Out on Vinyl LP from Alter.

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.

Phil Julian
Trace

Someone let abstract-electronics-expert Phil Julian into the EMS (Elektronmusikstudion) studio in Stockholm! I can only dream of the delicious range of sound machines one might find in a proper electroacoustic music studio like that… This LP on Harbinger Sound is the result of two weeks in residence at the EMS, and it sounds quite frankly gorgeous.

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.

tem
jacktapes

Wow! This is a collection of tracks a father made for his son, each year of his existence from birth onwards. Initially made to commemorate the childs birth, dad kept it going and will presumably keep it going until one of them dies. Thing is, the track I'm listening to is absolutely gorgeous. 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. 

Safer Tropics
Dream Boys EP

Here's a folk from Leeds who knows and love a few different genres and likes to make his own version of a couple of them under the same cover of darkness. 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.
  • Genre(s):

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.

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.

Fire / Failure Soundtrack

Experimental sample-based soundtrack by Abigail Rosa Ghimp. Recorded around 2000, and released at the time only on a small number of cassettes, this album almost never saw the light of day. Then, tragically, Gail Ghimp died of a heart attack in 2012 at the age of just 30, and these unique recordings were finally unearthed. The original vibe has been preserved by releasing this on cassette, just how it was intended. Limited to just 60 copies.

Bang! Bros.
12/12/12

The Bang! Bros are a free and avant and all things nice jazz duo consisting of Mark Johnson and Adam Foam. They made this record as part of the stupidest and greatest deadline ever, touring twelve cities over twelve hours on... you know... the twelth of December, two thousand twelve. This record is a 12". The duo's free jazz is slightly off the grid, focusing on electronics and drum patterns rather than acoustic instruments.

Ingrid Schmoliner
карлицы сюита

Here's a dramatic album of prepared piano pieces by Ingrid Schmoliner, a conceptual suite of pieces inspired by the pagan goddess Percht. The entire piece is presented without any overdubs or electronic manipulation, ranging from heady rhythmic atmospherics to whalesong-aping bowed strings to feverish spiraling and finally some meditative ebow drift.

Dan'l Boone

Dan'l Boone is an experimental outlet for a number of proficient indie and noise musicians: Neil Hagerty of Royal Trux, Nate Young of Wolf Eyes, Alex Moskos of Drainolih and Charles Ballas of Formant. This self-titled record is considered by the band to be their most abstract work, bringing together electronics, acoustic percussion and even some clarinet. 'Dan'l Boone' is a sprawling work from a strange little super-group.

Seth Cluett
Forms of Forgetting

Actual art, but in a record. If that sounds up your alley, this could be the disc for you. Seth Cluett describes himself as an artist, performer and musician. He plays a load of different instruments, some of which he made himself, and he is very heavy on concepts, experimentation and utilizing a variety of techniques to make music. This has to do with losing, then finding attention in music. Or something. Oh I don't know, buy it anyway. The sleeve looks like a wall.

Experimental and deeply unsettling guitar innovators that always play proudly out of tune and sound like they'd like to meet Glenn Branca, Neg Fi have put together a new collection of dissonant nuggets with 'Unmergency'. As always, their instrumental compositions are as understated as they are angular, never stepping much over the three minute maximum. Recommended for fans of post-punk and noise rock, but without any trace of the human element.

Matthew Collings
Silence Is A Rhythm Too

Matthew Collings is a Scottish-based composer. Not only being a solo recording and live artist, he collaborates regularly with artists from all kinds of fields including musicians (Ben Frost, Dag Rosenqvist from Jasper TX, Denovali label mate Talvihorros, Christos Michalakos or Euan Mcmeeken with whom he forms the duo Graveyard Tapes), dancers and filmmakers. His music can be roughly described as 'an elemental whorl of electro-acoustic (de)composition' (Boomkat.com), ranging from tiny delicate moments of intimacy to all consuming noise. Stepping away from song-like structures, which filled his previous record, “Splintered Instruments”, creates more spacious sounds and evokes the impression of time stretched through the three dimensions. Featuring brass ensembles and a string quartet the instruments and sounds are full of cracks, breath, embedding rough materials informed by luscious intentions. Real instruments and real acoustic spaces are used as much as possible during the production such as the electronics, were played out into concert halls and large rooms and re-recorded. “Silence Is A Rhythm Too” keeps an eye on the small textural details as it is about harmony and physicality in the moment where silence and noise meet.   CD:digipak.

Paul Baran
The Other

Paul Baran's brand of politically charged electro-acoustic is on full display with 'The Other', his new record for Fang Bomb. Baran brings together white noise, muffled rhythms and eerie vocal samples together into a peculiar type of avant-garde you could just about dance to. It's terrifying experimental work -- but there are beats, too.

Aeolipile
Glut / Paused Pregnancy

Aeolipile is comprised of three voluntarily underground noisemakers: elusive tape hiss lover Jason Williams playing sax, bassist Tom Roberts and jazz doom maverick Andy Pyne on drums. They play some sort of... genre, but we're not supposed to know what it is. They call it free-jazz, but they might be lying: whatever it is, it's rather chaotic. Would you have it any other way?

Kellar
Sunrise City Flux / Exit via Ocean

Kellar are a trio who make an unholy racket by improvising, largely through guitar compositions backed with a good dosage of fuzz and some idiosyncratic drumming. They bring to mind the best bands who didn't give a fuck and treated their tracks more as loose experimental vignettes than actual structured songs: think Glenn Branca playing made-up chords while Faust do weird things in the backdrop. This 7" shows off Kellar's abstract leanings.

Map 71
Standing / Specimen

Map 71 is the collaborative venture of poet Lisa Jayne and drummer Andy Pyne (Medicine & Duty, Kellar, Black Neck Band). Unsettling and murky, the lyrically nightmarish and musically harsh synth vibe of the A-side is complimented by a quieter and more relaxed flipside. Available on 7" vinyl on Foolproof Projects.
