Luton
Black Box Animals

Lost Tribe Sound had better not rename themselves William Ryan Fritch Records after all - things are getting diverse again. Here Italian duo Luton slip out a little 200-copy run of their brooding new album Black Box Animals. It combines various orchestral arrangements with electric guitar, piano, electronics and other stuff. The effect is a moody series of fragmented classical and ambient phrases in a slow dance.

From the Mouth of the Sun
Sleep Stations

Leftover stuff from the Hymn Binding and Menashe sessions is what we have here, showing a fuller and heavier sound than was appropriate for Menashe especially. Yes, it’s From the Mouth of the Sun, known individually on Earth as indefatigable drone cellist Aaron Martin and fizzy drone laptopist Dag Rosenqvist. If sullen synths and very emotional cello vibrato are your jam, you’re in the right place. But be quick - a hundred copies only.

Hastings Of Malawi
Visceral Underskinnings

It’s only been 35 years since their first album Vibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth, but British dadaist agitators and Nurse With Wound associates Hastings of Malawi are already coming through with the second record. Steady on, lads. As with the 1981 debut, the eclectic, concrète collagism on show here is in complete disregard of all popular music conventions - and all the better for it.

Jean Dubuffet
Expériences Musicales De Jean Dubuffet

Reissue of Jean Dubuffet's legendary Expériences Musicales. The original can cost upwards of €5000 so at £15.49 this is an absolute steal! Dubuffet founded Art Brut (not the band), a movement which he saw as raw emotional expression. His music is definitely raw, noisy and cacophonous. A fascinating artefact of 1960s avant-garde music.

A New Line (Related)
Our Lady Of Perpetual Fucking Succour

A long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed self titled debut (Dead Albatross nominated no less), this is a four track EP of minimal techno repetition from Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer). With roots in the deep dark dub of pioneers such as Terrence Dixon, Johnson has been influenced by recent collaborations with Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and has stripped his sound back to ultra repetitive beats and hypnotic dance floor jams. There are four tracks on the vinyl plus extra remixes on the download (Beppu, Perfume Advert, Maxim Wolzyn, the Humble Bee and Northerner).   **INITIAL COPIES COME WITH BONUS SIGNED POSTCARD**

Sugai Ken
てれんてくだ tele-n-tech-da

Tinkerer of sound first and designer of it second, Sugai Ken recently wowed us with his broken clockwork jams over on RVNG Intl. He here returns for a "radio play" based on the Japanese movement Mingei, further suggesting an almost folk art approach to his sound effect ambience. Sporadic and serendipitous, the record speaks to Sugai Ken's brilliant and uncompromising playfulness.

Bülent Arel
Electronic Music 1960-1973

Bülent Arel is one of those under-appreciate electroacoustic composers that labels like Sub Rosa are so good at unearthing from the dust of history. Arel, who worked on Varése’s piece ‘Déserts’, has an array of his electronic works from the period 1960 to 1973 reissued here in typically neat Sub Rosa style, on CD and vinyl LP.

Chra
On a Fateful Morning

Chra's approach to darker, foreboding electronica gathers far reaching influences together in one pot, transmitting a mysterious yet visceral result to the brain of the listener. Restless circuit chatter is enveloped in shadowy drones which break out into abstract rhythms and bass work, a journey through industry and fog.

UnicaZürn is the imaginative sound collaboration between Stephen Thrower and David Knight, both of whom have participated in some notable experimental musics (with Coil, Lydia Lunch and more). Transpandorem, their new LP for Touch, drifts around some spacey territory with synths, mellotron, guitar, clarinet, leaving behind a music that is hard to pin down.

Experimental ambient trio The Entourage Music & Theatre Ensemble released only two LPs during their active years of 190 and 1983. Tompkins Square have managed to collect 30 unreleased tracks that include alternate takes and early versions, alongside notes from the last surviving member Wall Matthews. Stunningly serene stuff that’ll just wash right over you.

Meadow House
This Should Not Be Happening

For those who didn't bother getting our Meadow House LP on Public House then you'll be even more annoyed to know that there's a further LP on Feeding Tube - an actual professional label that know what they are talking about. Admittedly Dan Wilson's eccentric project is a marmite affair but Feeding Tube liked it so much they scratted through 60 unreleased songs to come up with this example of his wild Syd Barrett indebted creativity.

Noon
Disquiet

Wow ok. This one blows your head off. Noon are a London-based trio that bring together free jazz, free rock and free everything else. They’ve taken seven years since the release of their debut EP in 2011, but Disquiet was worth the wait. The guitar playing recalls Adrien Belew and St Vincent at their very zaniest as well as packing an additional crunch that pretty much consumes the sound. The drums and bass are at once titanically massive and groovily nimble even when operating at sluggish tempos. It's a bit like Zammuto ... a bit.

Ekca Liena
Gravity and Grace

Public House Recordings alumni Ecka Liena offer their follow-up to Graduals in Gravity and Grace, another gorgeous soundtrack to shadows and solitude. Utilising non-musical sound as a structuring device, this record houses some of the band's most ambitious ideas to date. Come for the immense, dramatic soundscapes and stay for the never-ending melancholy.

Laurence Pike
Distant Early Warning

Laurence Pike is the drumming part of PVT (Pivot), Szun Waves and Triosk, but he also has a solo practice, which he is sharing with us for the first time here on Distant Early Warning. These six tracks, which were all recorded live during one day in the studio (very efficient), are played by Pike on drumkit and sampler, and the variety of sounds and textures achieved is impressive. Distant Early Warning is released by The Leaf Label.

Their third collaboration together is Divertissment, which is of course a richly detailed sonic environment, subtle but powerful.

Musique Expérimentale

Finders Keepers bring yet another vital moment of the 20th Century French leftfield to wax with this release of early electroacoustic music and music concrete. After Pierre Schaeffer secured the keys to one of Europe’s first purpose-built electroacoustic studios in 1951, a community began to incubate around the studio which eventually developed into the Groupe de Recherches Musicales de la R. T. F.. This release brings together essential works made by that loose collection of artists, who included Luc Ferrari and Michel Philippot.

Hatis Noit
Illogical Dance

Erased Tapes front four ‘sound sculptures’ from Japanese artist Hatis Noit that had previously only been released in Japan. Using her voice as the core element of the recordings, Noit has created an avant-song-cycle rich in range and emotion. Citing Japanese classical music and Gregorian chants as influences, Illogical Dance also recalls Holly Herndon and Bjork’s choir-centred LPs. Matmos turn in an edit of ‘Illogical Lullaby’.

Amoral Avatar
Amoral Avatar

Instrumental rock label Trestle Records (Noon, Karras) drop another envelope-pusher. Amoral Avatar are a duo who take post-rock about as far as it can go before it turns into, like, music concrete or something. It’s not ‘post-rock’ in the vast, glacial, Explosions In The Sky sense, though there are moments - ‘AA6’, for instance - of stillness and beauty. But there are also tracks like ‘AA2’ which could be something by Pierre Schaeffer. The fact that this record was tracked in a day (!) makes it even more impressive.

Ismo Laakso
Ofelia

Forgotten in a drawer for twenty years, this bizarre LP by Ismo Laakso at last sees the light of day, courtesy of Puu - sublabel of the revered Sähkö Recordings. These are some off-the-wall lo-fi excursions from the feisty Finn, with industrial and abstract sound design and texture-mangling alongside sacred choral, modern classical and many other kinds of samples. It’s aged well.

Richard Dawson
Peasant

The new album from Richard Dawson is a notable new epic from the Tyneside master, featuring more guest musicians than ever before. Peasant’s songs are all set in the pre-medieval north-east, with each title naming a figure: ‘Weaver’, ‘Herald’, ‘Beggar’. It’s the most fully-fledged work yet by Dawson, and it's out on Weird World.

Meadow House
Misadventures On The Scorn Cycle

Originally sent out at random to all manner of unsuitable places, 'Misadventures on the Scorn Cycle' sees a long-awaited vinyl release for Dan Wilson's sonic experiments as Meadow House. For the uninitiated, Wilson has a particularly English style of songwriting - imagine Chris Morris crossed with Syd Barrett and you are somewhere close. Part genius, part idiot, this is a rambling, absurdist outburst crammed with bits of sheer pop brilliance.

EMEI
EMEI

Bristol’s Aphelion Editions come through with a hyper-limited sound-sketch by EMEI. Opener ‘Frosted Glass’ sets the tone nicely for EMEI. Beginning with glacial prettiness, the melodies soon distort and overlap to create thick textures that bear comparison to the likes of both Fennesz and Explosions In The Sky. The record is an impressionistic one, with nursery-rhyme melodies, found sounds, screeching drones and more flitting in and out of the mix.

Star Turbine
The Great Distortion

Danish noise duo Star Turbine have two recordings from their 2017 UK tour put out on a micro-run by Aphelion Editions. Culled from performances in Bristol and Edinburgh, The Great Distortion captures the lo-fi idiosyncrats in full flow. At times skirting towards music concrete and sound-art, at others approaching doomy viscera, The Great Distortion is a record that has you craning your head to the monitor so you can better understand the transmission.
