Nurse With Wound and Graham Bowers
ExcitoToxicity

The third studio album release from Nurse With Wound and Graham Bowers. ExcitoToxicity ... an excess of most things, both mentally and physically, although exciting and pleasurable, can easily accelerate and rapidly become toxic ... on a cellular level, deadly. We have thrown caution to the wind and gone overboard on the quality of the 8 Panel DigiPak artwork design and packaging for this release ... why? ... Graham liked all Steven's proposed paintings for the album ... so Steven decided we should feature them all ... on a heavy board in full gloss, on a matte background.

Ensemble Economique
Melt Into Nothing

“Melt Into Nothing” is Ensemble Economique’s most lucid seance to date. The prolific Humboldt County musician has stripped layers off of his trademark haze but retained the beautiful desolation that’s earned him a rabid fanbase. The solo project of former Starving Weirdos member Brian Pyle, Ensemble Economique has crossed a land bridge from apocryphal world music and dusty soundtracks to gauzy 4AD-style atmospherics. Trellises of guitar embolden Pyle’s whispered, threadbare lyrics. On “Hey Baby”, the itinerant tone feels like an update on Neil Young’s stark and beautiful soundtrack for Jarmusch’s “Dead Man”. “Melt Into Nothing”, like that beautiful film music, evokes the great American expanse. Field recordings slip in and out of the mix. On “Fade for Miles”, Pyle’s adroit effects and backwards tape manipulation make the long trail on his vocals fade into waves on a rocky beach. CD: digipak. Vinyl: thick covers + thick printed inner sleeves, 180g vinyl, different vinyl colours, free download.

Simon Frank
Double Image

Hot & Cold are a somewhat elusive duo operating mainly out of New Delhi and Beijing, and information about this new release by Simon Frank (one half of Hot & Cold) is scarce. All we know is that it was recorded in Toronto and New Delhi, that it will be "intense", and that keen listeners will hear hints of Suicide, ESG and Zhou Shouwang.

Alien Ensemble
Alien Ensemble

Attempting to contact other intelligent life forms with the Alien Ensemble. Their self-titled record is the bands own take on improvised music. Taking ideas and concepts from the history of jazz, their sound blends Gil Evans-ish arranging techniques, Sun Ra harmonic forays and contemporary textures a la Brian Blade et al. This all acoustic group also stray into less abstract sounds of european folk and popular music territory. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Alien Transistor.

Nicola Ratti
Ossario Vol. 2

Through the use of sound generated from modular synthesizer, tapes and samples Ossario is a collection of ten separate and independent songs - in two volumes, available separately - introducing a new and radical composing method. The aim is to build some kind of musical skeletons designed not to be covered in flesh and tissues, but trying to reduce everything to the bone. This double release marks the end of the journey started with220 Tones (Die Schachtel, 2011) and continued with Streengs (Senufo Editions, 2012), focusing the research on the use of well-defined sound to be used now as a rhythmic element, now as en electronic impulse or eventually as a self-standing musical element. Simple sounds generated with magnetic tape saturation or electric pulses match with elements belonging to the language of techno music, shifting the focus away from its usual (and predictable) axis to a new (and eccentric) point of view.

Petrels
The Silver Chimney Club / Wat Tyler

Droning through the British countryside, Petrels has finally remastered and released these two tracks on a physical medium. Clocking in at 17 and 22 minutes respectively, The Silver Chimney Club/Wat Tyler are two songs that tell a noisy story. Recommended for fans of long, slow ambient and intense drone. Pressed on 180gr vinyl.

Deison & Mingle
Everything Collapse[d]

Straight from the Italian drone and noise scene comes a collaboration from Deison & Mingle. Droning onwards, ever onwards, in an unpleasant and paranoid soundscape where no human emotion is safe, these two Italians have taken it upon themselves to share, with us, what is left after Everything Collapse[d]. And it ain’t much.

connect_icut
Small Town by the Sea

Dropping field recordings over simple and pleasant beats, connect_icut’s newest release should be both accessible and enticing to a broad audience. WIth layers and structures slowly peeling away and revealing themselves through the ethereal pads, Small Town is sure to please the existent fans and create a few new ones.

Nastro
Terzo Mondo

Third album titled ‘Third World’ in Italian from Nastro, Manuel Cascone and Francesco Petricca. Limited edition. This avant-garde album of spastic sound played on a huge range of electronic instruments and voice was recorded live, along with other-worldly percussion create a disjointed but beautiful post-punk, psychedelic and noise infused soundscape.

Graham Lambkin
Came to Call Mine

The godfather of musique concrete -- or some weird relative on its endless family tree, anyway -- is Graham Lambkin. Away from the music, though, he is a proficient artist, and he delivers Came to Call Mine as proof, a book that brings together his detailed sketches with written expositions.  These images conjure both human experiences with those things we keep estranged from our lives.

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Live On Planet Earth

The Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is one of Alien Transistor’s craziest and biggest acts, always going their own path, somehow defining a route between the 18 of them. Known for their work on label buddies the Notwist’s work, they also draw their own weight: Live On Planet Earth was recorded live and is mysterious and catchy.

The Alvaret Ensemble
Skeylja

A collaboration between Dutch Frysians and Icelanders, Skeylja is a soft, haunting collection of songs that all seem to ooze the greyness of the North Sea. With horns that stir memories of ships passing by in the distance, this album will leave you in weary nostalgia for the lonely lighthouse where you spent so many winters by yourself, writing solemn poems in Frysian.

Kronos Quartet
A Thousand Thoughts

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of legendary string quartet Kronos Quartet, A Thousand Leaves is a wide-ranging compilation of works from their vast oeuvre of reinterpretations. Covering a vast geographical range these 15 pieces go a long way to showcasing their talents and eclectic tastes. A fantastic entry point and a boon for fans. Out on CD from Nonesuch.

Lydia Lunch
Retrovirus

Retrovirus is a career-spanning (1977 to present) live set from Lydia Lunch. The tour that spawned the set featured a band made up of Weasel Walter on guitar, Algis Kizys, who has played with Swans and Foetus, on bass and original Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert. Retrovirus is available on vinyl LP and CD.

Chris Connelly
Forgiveness & Exile

The Scottish singer-songwriter drifts ever further from his industrial roots (Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface) with this song cycle concerning the experiences of immigrants in the United States. The album nevertheless retains the confrontational realism characteristic of industrial music, with Connelly turning an unflinching eye on painful reality, even as he swathes the songs in dark blue atmospheres with the aid of co-producers Ben Vida (Town & Country, Bird Show) and Tim Kinsella. Features guest contributions from Current 93 founder and Durtro boss David Tibet and Garbage’s Shirley Manson among others.

Eugene Skeef & Rae Howell
Heavy Forest Air

Eugene Skeef and Rae Howell recorded this collaborative piece live at the Rolston Recital Hall at The Banff Centre, Alberta in Canada. In a room full of percussion instruments, the project began as a three month study of winter musics. Recorded by Jared Miller, the three collaborators have produced something wonderfully unique. CD.

Libbe Matz Gang
Infantilised Britain EP

One of the outfits (along with Hacker Farm and Ship Canal) currently positing an angry, politicised alternative to hauntology. Here they offer a brutish 7” EP of filthy electronics and scabrous polemic railing furiously at a nation gone ga-ga (not Gaga). Wrapped in a fittingly monochrome sleeve that similarly gestures at a Great Britain with all the colour drained out.

Asmus Tietchens
Der fünfte Himmel

Listening to Der Funfte Himmel, or the fifth heaven, makes you wonder what kinda guy wrote this stuff. Based on the collection of weird yet sometimes subliminal minimalist themes that trickle through the noise, you feel a natural born multitasker has released a record that was all about doing exactly what he wanted. And that is exactly what Asmus Tietchens has done.

Asmus Tietchens
Nachtstücke

Back when synthesizers were still machines and computers were still guys doing calculations, Asmus Tietches aimed his binoculars through the fourth dimensions across time, to the fertile fields of electronic music. Recorded in the 1970s, Nachtstücke are challenging and reissued as pure as can be.

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz
The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus

You’ll be pleased to hear that The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus by Free Nelson Mandoomjazz sounds pretty much as you’d expect ‘doomjazz’ to. Relatively traditional jazz passages (but with heavy bass) lurch into grinding metal with wild saxophone over the top. I also applaud the group for seemingly interrupting their own band name.

Cabaret Voltaire
Drinking Gasoline

Cabaret Voltaire are up to no good, as per usual. Drinking Gasoline originally surfaced in 1985 and featured four of the industrial ditties that made up the group’s Gasoline In Your Eye cassette. This reissue sees the tunes remastered and beefed up by the inclusion of a DVD that features some promo videos. And what do the songs sound like? Well, they sound like the bloody ‘80s, don't they.

Given
Piano Improvisations / Electrical Interferencies

Very limited (50 copies) CDr release from Given, aka Italian Dona Basile. Basile’s practice is broad, encompassing all manner of musics, up to and including Drum & Bass. Here though, he turns to the piano, for a series of improvisations. Surprisingly melodic, at least in comparison with most of the improvising I usually listen to...

Cabaret Voltaire
The Crackdown

Here we have a reissue of Cabaret Voltaire’s fifth LP The Crackdown. The first full-length the band released after the departure of founding member Chris Watson, this is a disorientating and sinister set of industrial anti-pop tunes. The Normal and Fad Gadget are evoked by The Crackdown’s avant blend of techno, minimal wave, synth-pop and more. It was named the 11th best album of 1983 by the NME, don’t you know. The CD edition also includes the quartet of tunes that made up The Crackdown’s accompanying Doublevision EP.

Cabaret Voltaire
Micro-Phonies

Synth gloomers Cabaret Voltaire originally released the delightfully titled Micro-Phonies in 1984, taking us down the pop route with a record of unapologetic hits -- hey art, you've gotta make money sometimes. No matter: the record delivers on its catchy intent, "Sensoria" features, and the band flies high.

Music for Advertisements is inspired by Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan Province in China. With pipa and erhu as well as piano and beatboxing Li Dai Guo creates the city through music for the listener. 7" on Genjing Records.

Land Of Kush
The Big Mango

Osama Shalabi's project Land of Kush is where esoteric sounds congregate: his mix of free whatever-you-want (as long as its improvised) is met with vocal howls and hums, strangely programmed electronic work in one big sonic ambiguation. The Big Mango uses this lens of odd sounds to consider gendered oppression in his own society, considering misogynistic violence and suppression.

BeMyDelay
Hazy Lights

Experimental, hazy folk stripped bare, with breathy female vocals and a slightly unnerving feel. Much more ambient than the previous release 'To the other side', 'Hazy Lights' is meditative, subtle and minimalistic-sounding. Slow-burning, melancholic and emotional. Vinyl LP on the Boring Machines label.

Is it possible to evoke colour in pure sound? Hide the track titles from you friends and ask what they see to these soundscapes on some dark and peaceful nights this winter. On CD or limited one-sided 12”.

Lonnie Holly
The Sandmans Garden – A Film By Arthur Sloss Crenshaw

This DVD will be a tempter for anyone who swooned over Lonnie Holley’s fascinating couple of albums that came out in the last few years. The Sandmans Garden exposes Lonnie in the grips of his instinctive, boundary-less folk-art. It also traces the sometimes traumatic past of this remarkable artist over the course of this very worthy film by Arthur Sloss Crenshaw.

Mika Vainio
Kilo

In 2013 the late Finnish mainstay Mika Vainio cropped up on Blast First Petite (Pan Sonic, Blood Sport) with the sort of casual masterpiece he made look routine. Kilo was as dense, dank and downright dark as anything Vainio had previously conjured up in his long and distinguished career. The blend of black-hearted electronics and hissing ambiences here are pretty close to Prurient.
