Rachel Zeffira
Elizabeth Harvest (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Rachel Zeffira is primarily an oboe player, however, she’s also a soprano and can turn her hand to a number of other instruments. What's more, she was in Cats Eyes with Faris Badwan of The Horrors. Her classical background made her an ideal candidate to take on the score for the Sebastian Gutierrez film, Elizabeth Harvest. Using Erik Satie’s Sarabande as a thematic base, the score becomes less conventional and more experimental as it progresses. Clear vinyl LP on Invada.

Oren Ambarchi, Crys Cole, Leif Elggren
Certainly

This unholy alliance between Oren Ambarchi (AUS), Crys Cole (CAN) and Leif Elggren (SWE) took place at a residency in Stockholm’s EMS Studios in 2016. The story goes that the harsh winds blew off the windows, prompting the trio to take desperate measures to stay warm and record. Sounds more like a contact mic passing through a cow’s intestines to me. It’s a good sound.

Colman
Daedalus

Following on from releases of music by Visible Cloaks and Pedro, Portland’s record shop-turned-label Musique Plastique have decided to give reissues a go. John Gilbert Colman composed Daedalus in the mid-80s to accompany an avant-theatrical piece. It is, of course, quite strange. Sometimes it sounds almost like chamber music, sometimes like the intro to a children’s TV show, and sometimes it’s little more than someone cooing and plucking a banjo. Always keeps you guessing, does old Daedalus.

Mołr Drammaz
Times Before Emojis

The Polish underground is one of the most hyperactive in the world. Mołr Drammaz have been a crucial part of this underground since 1994, in ever-shifting permutations. ‘Times Before Emojis Came’ compiles material from many of the involved artists, it’s a sound genuinely unpredictable, both dank and ecstatic. From entwined rhythmic jams to liquidated electronics, this is experimental without pretence.

Machinefabriek with Anne Bakker
Short Scenes

Walking electro-acoustic ambient factory Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuydervelt) converts sessions from another project with violinist-violist Anne Bakker into a suite of vignettes for Zoharum. They’re short. They’re scenes. They’re Short Scenes. If you’re familiar with the ‘briek, you’ll have an idea of what this is like, although Zuydervelt’s manipulations show great restraint overall; it’s mainly multi-tracked strings, rather than glittering, digital textures.

Sylvain Chauveau
Pianisme

LP on Sub Rosa.

Leighton Craig
Diamond Eye

Leighton Craig lives in Brisbane, Australia. He makes lo-fi keyboard instrumentals that vary in their complexity. At times he drops in samples from his vast cassette library of noises. Diamond Eye is his latest album. Another thing he does is draw straight, descending lines as shown on the cover to this record. LP on Bruit Direct Disques.

Ragnar Grippe
Symphonic Songs

Swedish composer Ragnar Grippe gets an old collection released on Dais Records (Genesis Breyer P-Orridge And Thee Early Worm, SRSQ). Written in 1981 for an avant-garde theatre piece but only now seeing the light of day, Symphonic Songs finds Grippe marrying atonal Buchla experiments with a string section equal-parts Schnittke and Schoenberg. Artwork by Ascetic House founder J.S. Aurelius.

Howlround
A Creak In Time

Howlround make their music with four (yes, four!) reel-to-reel tape machines, which they use to reach physically into their sounds, manipulating them into whole new forms. A Creak In Time is all about the creak: every bit of source material used is a field recording of an object creaking. Those sounds, tweaked with a reel-to-reel, become a whole new ocean of atmosphere. LP release on Psyché Tropes.

Anguish
Anguish

RareNoise brings you a formidable supergroup in Anguish - it’s Will Brooks and Mike Mare of Dälek, Mats Gustafsson and Andreas Werliin of Fire! and Hans Joachim Irmler of Faust. Rather living up to its name from the start, kicked off by Mats’ wailing sax, things move on between free jazz atmospheres, vicious industrial hip-hop and rap and grim, smoky urban hopelessness.

Holger Czukay
Radio Wave Surfer

Holger Czukay, core member of the perennially loved German experimental group Can, went on to be a productive maker of weird and wonderful pop. Among his solo albums is Radio Wave Surfer, a delightful 1991 release that was all recorded live, in studios and at concerts, with only one stereo mic: none of that Can studio trickery here! Reissued now by Grönland.

Bendik Giske
Surrender

Saxophone-wunderkind Bendik Giske delivering his hypnotizing debut. With the sense of a more accessible and less intimidating Colin Stetson, the Norwegian explores all the nooks and crannies of the sax. Surrender is the man’s first full-length but it’s packed with warm sounds, the clicking of valves, and mesmerizing rhythms. Great reed, would recommend.

Graham Massey & Umut Çağlar
Kicked From The Stars

Hell of a pairing here, between free-improvising jazz musician Umut Caglar, from the band Konstrukt, and Graham Massey, from 808 State. How did that work? you might wonder. Well, wonder no more! After a ten day residency, the duo (plus Gnod’s Paddy Steer) performed their results, and Kicked From The Stars is a finely-document of that event. From Samarbeta.

Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson was a musical legend, one of the original members of Throbbing Gristle and an innovative musician in his own right. This live recording is an homage to the short film by Derek Jarman. The Art of Mirrors. Recorded before the end of Coil in 2004 and captured here on double vinyl.

Kukangendai × Ryuichi Sakamoto
Zureru

Tokyo avant-jazz three-piece Kukangendai join forces with the one and only Ryuichi Sakamoto for a special collaborative release. Zureru presents one track with the artists working in tandem, one Kukangendai original, and a reworking of said Kukangendai original by Sakamoto. The one where Sakamoto takes control is a stoically beautiful drone piece, while Kukangendai’s freaky input comes across like 23 Skidoo reworked by Micachu And The Shapes. Is good.

Yximalloo
The Best of Yximalloo 1

Yximalloo is a man on a street in Tokyo, who has been busy doing his own thing for many years. ‘His own thing’ tends to equate to weird and warped versions of techno, psych and much besides, but really we should just call his genre Yximalloo music. This self-assembled best of LP collection makes a splendid introduction.

About Group
RAK

Looks like Charles Hayward's escaped but with new drummer Rupert Clervaux here are more rhythmic jams from the 'super' group who also contain John Coxon (Spring Heel Jack) and one Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip. The press release compares it to Ege Bamyasi era Can and if it gets even close to that then we'll be delighted.

Luc Ferrari
L'Escalier Des Aveugles

The late Luc Ferrari composed L’Escalier des Aveugles (The Stairway Of The Blind) for Spanish National Radio as part of 1990’s European Day Of Music. Over a musical landscape that takes in everything from lopsided electroacoustic composition to sky-scraping ambiences, six actors speak in order to guide the listener through different parts of Madrid - the subway, a market, a gallery containing Goya’s The 3rd Of May 1908 and so on. The resulting work is engrossing and often moving.

Sarah Davachi
All My Circles Run

The vast soundworld of Sarah Davachi expands a little further with All My Circles Run, her second LP of the year after the stunning modular portraits of Dominions. While that record continued to investigate Davachi's juxtaposition of straight-up tone drone and rippling, Radigue inspired movement, All My Circles Run sees her depart from modular synthesis for a record of instrumental experiments, with separate excursions taking place on strings, organ, piano and vocals. She's one of the best drone artists out there, both in practice and presentation, so dig on this, please.

48 Cameras
Chosen Songs

48 Cameras are a musical collective spread throughout Belgium, UK and Netherlands. Their music is varied and due to the way they work, some members have never even met each other. This has been going on since 1984. Martyn Bates of Eyeless in Gaza, Andy Cairns of Therapy? and Swans Michael Gira have all played their part in the project in the past. Chosen Songs looks like it may be a retrospective of their best moments. LP on Stroom.

Vous et Nous

The 1977 collaborative LP between avant-garde luvvies Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belkacem gets reissued by Kythibong (The Healthy Boy, Deerhoof). There’s an awful lot going on on Vous et Nous. Everything from French medieval music to post-Reich phasing experiments to North African folk styles get a look in here. No wonder Stereolab cite this record as a major influence.

Evan Parker
The Snake Decides

Phenomenal work from free jazz legend Evan Parker, a figure who has consistently wrestled with the heart of form. ‘The Snake Decides’ has this kinetic restlessness that won’t let up. Recorded in St Paul's Church, Oxford, this is a seminal work that’s free but not without thought or process. Reissued by Otoroku and remastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, this edition is limited to 500 copies.

Thurston Moore
Klangfarbenmelodie.. And The Colorist Strikes Primitiv

Klangfarbenmelodie….And The Colourist Strikes Primitiv by Thurston Moore was originally released in the same year as his Psychic Hearts album. In the Sonic Youth timeline that’s in between Washing Machine and A Thousand Leaves. It’s also in a time before people read Kim Gordon’s Biography…..Anyway, what we have here is a reissue, on vinyl for the first time, of Thurston Moore's vicious noise-rock set recorded with free jazz drummer Tom Surgal. It was originally released by Corpus Hermeticum, a label owned by Bruce Russell from The Dead C. Russell edited the recording for this release and contributes new liner notes. Heavyweight white vinyl on Glass Modern.

Iannis Xenakis
Persepolis

Having previously returned Xenakis’ La Légende d'Eer to vinyl, Berlin’s Karlrecords tackle the Greek composer's 1971 electroacoustic masterpiece. Commissioned by the Shah of Persia, it’s been unavailable on vinyl for decades, with CD editions often abbreviated. This is a new mix from Xenakis’ original 8-track master, cut by Rashad Becker. A truly groundbreaking piece that still sounds exhilarating and overwhelmingly intense. Should be sought out by any fan of avant garde electronics and noise.

Hanno Leichtmann
Nouvelle Aventure

Ever the innovator, Thomas Herbst’s Karlrecords (Iannis Xenakis, John Cage) release a new LP from Hanno Leichtmann. On Nouvelle Aventure we find Leichtmann playing around with the 70-year-old archive of the Darmstadt Summer Courses For New Music - a programme that featured (among others) Xenakis, Karlheinz Stockhausen and György Ligeti. He treats the source material in all sorts of ways here (micro-loops, re-recording, tape manipulation etc.) and comes up with a record of Nurse With Wound-ish musique concrete.

Senyawa
Sujud

Who wouldn’t love Senyawa, the duo from Indonesia who combine traditional Indonesian folklore and music with black metal vocals, noise textures, and all manner besides. Sujud is their new record, and features a specially home-built guitar as well as Rully Shabara’s incredible vocals. On Sublime Frequencies.

Eliane Radigue
Geelriandre / Arthesis

Travelling the world to play infinite early ambient/drone compositions at universities and museums, Eliane Radigue is one of the first pioneers of drone. Her works Geelriande and Arthesis are seemingly endless, patient, content to remain in a constant state of being. And now, for the first time, released on vinyl.

Jim O'Rourke
Bad Timing

A classic from the infinitely capable Jim O’Rourke, treating the listener to four ten-ish minute guitar-led instrumentals, the guitar augmented with various other sounds. For all the noise-making found elsewhere in O’Rourke’s career, he certainly has a way with a melody, and each of these tracks leisurely explore the space around one. I’ve listened to Bad Timing many times, and suggest you do the same.

Roger Doyle
Oizzo No

The Irish composer’s ultra-rare 1975 debut is a wonderland of head-spinning tape collage, densely dissonant strings, and woozily detuned pianos, where uilleann pipes meet the avant garde. There’s a strong Uncle Meat-era Mothers of Invention flavour in the copious tape-speed manipulation, tricksy melodies and echoes of Edgard Varèse. Though Doyle was signed to U2’s short-lived Mother Records, it’s more useful to note his appearance on the Nurse With Wound list, and their label United Dairies.

Oliver Kearns

An album that completely washes over you, before slowly revealing it's depth and variety. The space within its ambience is made real by free jazz inspired drumming. On Aphelion Editions.

Thresholder

Ian William Craig is always very welcome round these parts, and Thresholder, the man’s first album in eighteen months, demonstrates why. Those tape machines of his are put to work in the construction of an eleven-track, forty-minute sound environment. Deep and gorgeous smeared ambience, on FatCat sub-label 130701.

Nurse With Wound
Ci-Gît d'Antonin Artaud / To Another Awareness

No one finer than Steven Stapleton - a.k.a. Nurse With Wound - when it comes to transplanting the ethos of surrealism to music. ‘To Another Awareness’ is fifteen minutes of previously unreleased material that finds Stapleton exploring the murkier end of his ambient tendencies. Suffice to say it’s another essential release from one of industrial culture’s most difficult to place figures, released on CD and made to illustrate an accompanying text from Antonin Artaud titled ‘Ci-Gît d'Antonin Artaud’.

Lionel Marchetti + Cat Hope (Performed by Decibel)
The Last Days Of Reality

Famed avant-garde composers Cat Hope and Lionel Marchetti have some of their work performed by Decibel on this new Room40 (Merzbow, Norman Westberg) release. The Last Days Of Reality sees Hope and Marchetti combine on two tracks while Marchetti also has four solo pieces here. Impressively performed by Decibel, the mix of portentous noise, concrete techniques and precise electroacoustic composition is reminiscent of both Coil and Karlheinz Stockhausen in equal measure.

Italian label Alga Marghen (Walter Marchetti, Charlemagne Palestine) release a retrospective that focuses on the Los Angeles Free Music Society art space/music studio/commune. Though the LAFMS was a relatively short fling in the mid-70’s, the spot at 35 S. Raymond Street became a central point for all kinds of experimental scenes incubating in LA at the time. This LP chronicles some of the stuff that was taped at the spot.

Room40 (Merzbow, Lawrence English) drop an LP of piano explorations by label favourite Erik Griswold. The phrase ‘prepared piano’ can strike fear into the hearts of even the most adventurous music lover, but you’ll be pleased to hear that Yokohama Flowers manages to maintain a sense of warmth amidst all the dampened strings and heavy keys. Indeed, some of it kind of sounds like Beirut if you squint hard enough.

Steve Reich
Different Trains / Electric Counterpoint

Lots of ways to evoke trains in music. We could scarce forget Lord Buckley’s ‘The Train’ from ‘69, and Kraftwerk did a splendid synthetic job in ‘77 with Trans-Europe Express. Highly influential US composer Steve Reich’s own contribution to this genre (traincore), a sumptuous rhythmic work performed by Kronos Quartet, came in ‘89 through Nonesuch, and now they’re reissuing it. Also present is the equally beautiful ‘Electric Counterpoint’, performed by Pat Metheny.

Stine Janvin
Fake Synthetic Music

Norwegian composer and performer Stine Janvin enters PAN’s labyrinth with new album Fake Synthetic Music. Mainly for voice and delay, the album tests what can be done with such a limited (conceptually, at least) source of sound. Very exciting, and not to be brushed off as similar to Norwegian voice performer Maja Ratkje; the two get distinct results from their processes.

Bjarni Gunnarsson
Lueur

Not gonna lie, the heart of this particular description writer sinks when he gets a record in by an ‘Icelandic sound artist/composer’. You can thank the Olafur Arnaldses and Sigur Roses of this world for eroding any confidence he once had in that particular phrase. As such, his hopes weren’t high for Bjarni Gunnarsson’s Lueur LP. So consider him pleasantly surprised when it turned out that the four tracks here were a damn sight better than the self-congratulatory hold music of his peers. This is challenging, unsettling electroacoustic composition that uses every inch of the speakers.

Comes with brand new artwork from Stapleton and an article by Paul Hegarty.  Very limited release, of course.

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards more experimental textures with acid/free jazz textures and spoken word narratives. They've been working on this since 1992 so it's about time we all dipped in.

Nurse With Wound
Homotopy To Marie

Nurse With Wound main man Steven Stapleton regards Homotopy To Marie as the first real Nurse With Wound album, although it’s actually their 5th. This is because he made it how he wanted to without anyone else chipping in with ideas. He locked himself away and perfected his tape editing and track construction techniques to present an album that reached further into the avant-garde that previous releases. Double LP on Rotorelief.

Here is a unique thing  - Mr Jason Pierce of Spiritualized made it in 2005 and unlike his normal band's gospel-ey space rock, it has him playing around with guitar loops. It consists of two long improvisations, one on each side, with a kind of ordered chaos for the listener to interpret. First time on vinyl and a must for Spacemen 3/Spiritualized fans.

A Score For Darling is the (rather self-aware in terms of title) soundtrack to Birgitte Staermose’s film Darling, an emotionally potent tale of a dancer’s life. Erik K Skodvin and Rauelsson, both presenting their first ever soundtrack work here, have done an impressive job, drawing on the additional talents of Christophe Berg and Anne Muller to expand their instrumentation.

Catherine Christer Hennix
Selected Early Keyboard Works

Catherine Christer Hennix (great name) seems to have had an interesting life both in and out of music. As well as being a friend of LaMonte Young, student of Prandit Pran Nath and collaborator with Arthur Russell, Hennix has taught at M.I.T. and SUNY New Paltz. A recent flurry of interest in Hennix’s cross-disciplinary work - as well as being a musician she is also a poet, philosopher and visual artist - has spawned this full-length release of Hennix’s music. Selected Early Keyboard Works contains four fascinating minimalist compositions that are characterised by solo instruments - piano, Fender Rhodes, marimba etc. - accompanied by drones.

Jerusalem In My Heart
Daqa’iq Tudaiq

Montréal audiovisual duo Jerusalem in my Heart (Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and filmmaker Charles-André Coderre) return after three years with Daqa’iq Tudaiq. Set to excite such blogs ‘n’ mags as The Wire, A Closer Listen and The Quietus as much as did its predecessor If He Dies, If If If If If If, the album offers fascinating and unusual textures in two separate parts: a new orchestral reinterpretation of an Egyptian classic on side A and some full-on avant garde skewing of traditional Arabic styles on side B. Something highly modern, unique, diasporic and well-made.

New collaboration between Maze, who's part of Orphan Swords, and Otto Lindholm, the producer.

A tension filled and claustrophobic work combining modern classical and dark electronica.

Chris Watson
Locations, Processed (Blue TB7 Series)

Chris Watson probably has the coolest CV of the original post-punk scene. Starting out as one of the founding members of Cabaret Voltaire, he has since become one of the world's premier recorders of nature, helping create meaningful soundscapes for David Attenborough's documentaries. On Locations, Processed he combines these practices, creating an audio odyssey using The Moog Sound Lab’s System 55 to celebrate the legendary Bob Moog.

Reinier Van Houdt
Igitur Carbon Copies

Reinier van Houdt is an excellent pianist, known for playing contemporary classical music by Michael Pisaro and other such notables. But he’s got more than piano up his sleeve: Igitur Carbon Copies also features an array of cracked noises from radios, tapes, and David Lynch samples, as well as spoken word delivered by Current 93’s main man David Tibet! My my. Out on Hallow Ground.

PLYXY
Gloryland

After being issued as a small cassette run by Ascetic House in early 2018 PLYXY’s Gloryland now gets a re-release via Hallow Ground. As is the want of the Swiss label, this record is a pretty frosty and demanding listen. The gnarled, weary synthscapes here recall Forest Swords and fellow HG act Dedekind Cut. Closer ‘March Of Youth’ breaks out into full-on noise.

Klara Lewis & Simon Fisher Turner
Care

Former member of The The and The Gadget (and the Portsmouth Sinfonia) Simon Fisher Turner teams up with Klara Lewis for this new record on Editions Mego. Care is an album of sound art that juxtaposes quiet drones and fragile loops with passages of busy sonic activity. The commitment to loud-quiet-loud is Pixies-esque, though musically this LP is closer to an artist like Yves Tumor.

Jana Winderen
Spring Bloom in the Marginal Ice Zone

Norwegian artist Jana Winderen makes field recording like no one else. It was her mission to search for sounds that were hard to reach, or hard to hear. Spring Bloom In The Marginal Ice Zone is not a poetic title - it is what it is - the sounds she has recorded reflect the goings on in the Barents Sea as plankton matures, sea ice cracks, orcas and humpbacks find new homes for the season and cod hunt and spawn. CD on Touch.

London Experimental Ensemble
Child Ballads

Back in ye olde Victorian times a fellow called Francis James Child anthologised more than 300 ballads from England, Scotland and the U.S.A. in a collection that came to be known as the Child Ballads. Here the London Experimental Ensemble go about tackling six of them in their own abstract, longform manner. These are highly atmospheric interpretations that have something of the Scott Walkers about them.

Takehisa Kosugi
Catch-Wave

Takehisa Kosugi’s (Taj Mahal Travellers) 1975 album Catch-Wave is one of those old LPs that goes for absolute megabucks nowadays. Of course, a sub-market of reissues has been created for such records, and that’s what we’re dealing with here. Rather than spending north of £200 for a well-worn edition of these psychedelic synth/drone experiments, we’ve got a lovely new version here for a fraction of the price. Fans of Charlemagne Palestine and Fennesz should give this one a shot.

Janek Schaefer (For Robert Wyatt)
What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing

Scholarly sound artist Janek Schaefer has been doing his thing while garnering acclaim for at least two decades now, and here he is with a new work that showcases his transient sound at its most accessible. The new record (For Robert Wyatt) - 'What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing' was constructed from parts of Wyatt's 'Cuckooland' album and is particularly resonant, now adapted from the performance into one side of the record. The piece is complemented by 7 new equally poignant compositions. Well, count me in. Limited edition (1000 copies) of the transparent gold vinyl LP, also on CD; on Temporary Residence.

Ingus Baušķenieks
Spoki

Knives, shoes, guitars and . . . pens? Interesting album art. Spoki (or Ghosts for us who don't happen to speak Latvian) is a collection of sound art and experimental noise, taking the sound away from what Ingus Bauškenieks is perhaps better known for: being the bass guitarist in Dzeltenie Pastnieki. Available on vinyl LP and released on Stroom.

Peter Brötzmann / Heather Leigh
Sparrow Nights

Lap steel guitar expert Heather Leigh, whose announcement of an upcoming “pop” album for Mego has caused some excitement, is still cranking out the avant-garde ones as well. Here’s another for trusty Viennese ear-troubler Trost with prolific producer of reedy rackets Peter Brötzmann. Leigh is on lap steel, Brötzmann on various clarinets and saxes. Their interactions sound like a highly enthusiastic dialogue in which each participant continually interrupts the other - but always in friendly agreement.

Muslimgauze
Azzazin

Azzazin was the debut album by experimental electronic musician Muslimgauze AKA Bryn Jones. The album is an atmospheric and occasionally unsettling soundscape of drones, clicks, buzzes and beeps. It arguably shows Muslimgauze at his most efficient and focused. The album was originally released in 1996, three years before his premature death at the age of 37. Double LP on Staalplaat/Muslimgauze Archive Series. Limited to 700 copies.

Cosey Fanni Tutti
Tutti

Tutti is Cosey Fanni Tutti's first solo album since 1982's Time to Tell, and is an exploration of her self, life and art. It was created to be the soundtrack to Harmonic Coumaction, a film about Tutti. The album features the unsettling pounding synths we've come to expect from the Throbbing Gristle crew but is made more personal in how Tutti incorporates other elements.

So You (Hermes, Orpheus, Eurydice)

Best known for I Am Sitting in a Room, US composer, installation artist and almost-nonagenarian Alvin Lucier continues to add to his great body of work. New recording So You… (Hermes, Orpheus, Eurydice) is an hour-long parallel to poet H.D.’s interpretation of the Orpheus myth. Jessika Kenney, Anthony Burr, Charles Curtis and Tom Erbe assist to flesh out the work’s focus on resonant chambers and interference patterns.

Loren Connors is one of those avant-garde composers’ whose records sell out quickly, and definitively. When their albums make a return, they are no longer avant-garde, but canon. So it should be with Blues the ‘Dark Paintings’ of Mark Rothko, inspired by Rothko, and a timepiece in its own right. 800 copies on 160 gram vinyl.

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.

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.

It veers from hip-hop to jungle to jazz while always maintaining a core identity that is as silly as it is practiced.

Coil / Zos Kia / Marc Almond
How To Destroy Angels

A Coil rarity for you here coming courtesy of Cold Spring (Merzbow, Psychic TV). This recording, dating to a gallery performance in 1983, is markedly different from the similarly-titled EP that Coil issued the following year. With the group at this point consisting of Marc Almond, John Gosling and of course John Balance, they construct a twenty-plus minute piece from spoken word and industrial noise. Gosling’s Zos Kia project provides a remix. Closing track ‘Baptism of Fire’ is an unreleased ZK/Coil collaboration recorded in the same year.

The technical prowess on display on An Exploded View Of Time is simply astonishing. Bernstein puffs endless billows of sound from his horn, creating dizzying and hallucinatory minimalist compositions that bring to mind a more frenzied rendering of Philip Glass.

Karlheinz Stockhausen
Adventures In Sound

Karlheinz Stockhausen is an artist that every music lover should give a go at least once in their life. The German composer’s theories about everything from form to notation to sound itself revolutionised art music in post-war Europe. In one way or another his work has influenced pretty much genre to come after him. Worth a listen, then, and this new compilation Adventures In Sound provides a good way into the composer's ouevre.

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.

Jessica Moss
Entanglement

Entanglement is album number three from Jessica Moss. Moss earned her stripes with a fifteen year stint in Canadian post-everything band Thee Silver Mt. Zion (and all variations on that name). She has also worked with such luminaries as Vic Chesnutt and Carla Bozulich. The title of this album explains it all, really: She uses violin and her voice to create twisting, swirling, overlapping - tangling, if you will, soundscapes. LP and CD on Constellation.

The Sedate

Ailie Ormston is back, though not quite as you knew her. The affable, wry dreariness of her band ******** gives way on this solo effort to something harder, more minimal and even *gulp* deconstructive. Fortunately, Ailie doesn’t take this stuff as seriously as many other musicians seem to and the result is crucially as entertaining as it is enlightening. Apparently all done with just one drum machine and one synth, and all.

A fresh new Tapeworm, plucked from the ground. And what does it contain? Why, two sides of exciting materials from Kostis Kilymis of course!

Second Saturation is a tape on The Tapeworm.

Tantalising pairing of Norwegian electroacoustician Jon Wesseltoft and powerhouse Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi, who has recently been prominently in action with a certain Merzbow. Infinite Vice is less relentless and more explorative than the Merzwork: though some of the electronic textures are pretty fizzy, the general vibe is of listening and improvised textures.

Cassette label The Tapeworm have been running a tidy racket for almost a decade now. Since 2009 the London label has released great little tapes from the likes of Stephen O’Malley and Derek Jarman. Their 111th release (very satisfying, that) comes courtesy of Dutch composer/sound-artist Zeno van den Broek. To create Entrop, van den Broek built a synth, modded it with feedback loops and set it to trigger percussive sounds on a drum computer. The musical results bridge noise, music concrete and IDM.

Colin Stetson
All This I Do For Glory

Windblower and earch-scorcher Colin Stetson returns for a new record of original solo material, his first since the finale in the New History Warfare trilogy. The core of his sound, developed through bass and alto saxophones, is pushed through with his signature circular breathing and cracked vocals, with additional percussion coming by way of mics capturing his frenzied fingering movements. After a stunning Norman Records Album of The Year™ with violinist Sarah Neufeld and an ensemble black metal reinterpretation of Gorecki's Sorrow, this could be seen as a roots record. It's a no frills edition of Stetson, capturing his sparse, largely one-take approach at its most intense, and arguably its most rhythmic. Influenced by Aphex and Autechre -- which isn't that big of a jump, when you think about it -- we happen to think it's quite brilliant.

NNA Tapes (Kalbells, Matthewdavid’s Mindflight) drop a record of intriguing percussion experiments from Booker Stardrum. Having spent time thumping tubs for artists such as Lee Ranaldo and Weyes Blood, Temporary Etc. sees Stardrum taking flight from behind his kit. His loping beats - somewhere between ?uestlove and Eli Keszler - are augment by dreamy synth textures and ambient drones. Lovely stuff.
