Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Austerity Dogs is the 6th album by Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods, but it’s the one that got them noticed. Since its release in 2013, the band have gone from strength to strength, being a necessary mouthpiece and cathartic outlet for many in the these austere times. They mix a punk snarl with ...view item »

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, ...view item »

Alvarius B / Sir Richard Bishop
Strange Fruit

Unrock here issue a very special record indeed, pairing Sun City Girls' Alan and Richard Bishop on a split 10". These figures need no introduction given their work within the celebrated avant-psych outfit in which they made their names. This release holds extra significance though, celebrating 2...view item »

Henry Caravan
A SHRINE TO A RADIATOR

Louis Johnstone is a restless creature of many aliases, and best known for the ultra-minimal collaged field recordings of Wanda Group. His intimate home recordings as Henry Caravan shrug off any semblance of artifice. This tape is a foray into rambling but unexpectedly fluent acoustic guitar improv that hints at...view item »

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, mod...view item »

Creta
Creta

This new project from Massimo Pupillo (Zu, Laniakea), Luciano Lamanna and Roberto Zanisi sees the trio create three heady ambient soundscapes. The division of labour is thus: Lamanna brings the modulars, Zanisi handles guitar as well as an array of Mediterranean...view item »

Kim Byoung Duk / 김병덕
Experiment No. X

Kim Byoung Duk lived in Busan, a busy port city where he ran a record shop and became friends with fine foreign imports. His psychedelic tastes soon matured to embrace ambient, experimental and spiritual strands. He found pots of varying size and curvature, fashioning percussive instruments and fl...view item »

Luciano Cilio
Dialoghi Del Presente

Seeing as he’s done the liner notes, this Norman Records™ description writer is going to presume that Dialoghi Del Presente is one of Jim O’Rourke’s favourite records. It’s easy to see how Luciano Cilio’s 1977 album would have appealed to the ex-Sonic Youth...view item »

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 an...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 a...view item »

William S. Burroughs
Call Me Burroughs

Superior Viaduct reissue William S. Burroughs’ recorded debut, Call Me Burroughs. On this vinyl LP the avant garde master reads from his work. Merging politics, satire, sci-fi, cut-up techniques, beat culture and more, the words are utterly incomparable and Burroughs’ voice is equall...view item »

Chris Corsano / Massimo Pupillo
Via Combusta

Those in the know will immediately identify this as a premium slice of heavy-hitting improvisation: how could it fail to be with this personnel? Massimo Pupillo plays grinding noise-bass for Zu, and Chris Corsano has played impossibly-expressive drums alongside almost every notable member of the...view item »

Jacqueline Humbert & David Rosenboom
J. Jasmine: My New Music

Originally composed for the 1978 Ann Arbor Film Festival, this first coming together of Jacqueline Humbert and David Rosenboom under the J. Jasmine banner is a playful art-cabaret romp. Seeking to dismantle gender, push boundaries and generally get up the backs of the conservative mainstream, Hu...view item »

Pierre Henry / Michel Colombier
Messe Pour Le Temps Présent

This first stretch of this 1967 release makes up the score of a ballet by Maurice Bejart. It represents Henry at his most friendly, applying his electroacoustic skills in a very swinging sixties context. Most famously, the record contains the track Psyché Rock, later used as the basis of the theme to animated comedy serie...view item »

Matmos / People Like Us / Wobbly
Wide Open Spaces

Let’s revisit a remarkable collaboration from 2002, when plunderphonic supremos People Like Us and Wobbly matched up with Matmos, the kings of high-concept, high-fun electronics. Wide Open Spaces documents a live performance themed around ‘country & western’, which...view item »

Minibus Pimps
Cloud to Ground

Weirdly enough, I was just wondering a couple of days ago what Deathprod was up to after spinning his 'Morals And Dogma' masterpiece for a couple of friends, and as if the cosmos heard my question, today I have taken delivery of this Minibus Pimps LP to review, remarkable because it not only features Helge "...view item »

Fennesz / Daniell / Buck
Knoxville

I really like Christian Fennesz. Tony Buck's in The Necks who I really like too. I don't think I've got an opinion on David Daniell (I'm pretty sure I've heard something of his before but memory is a fickle mistress) but since the other two obviously really like him then I do too. I guess you might be thinking that I'm gonna like this. Well it h...view item »

Koenraad Ecker
A Biology of Shadows

Third solo album from Belgian sound artist Koenraad Ecker released on his newly minted In Aulis label in an edition of 300 copies, housed in a lovely gatefold sleeve and mastered by Rashad Becker at D+M. If you’ve heard his previ...view item »

MMMD
Andromache

Leading chamber droners MMMD follow up their monolithic, triple 10" from the year gone with a tape in homage to and mourning a good friend. All recorded from within an apartment, it's a rework of the duo's old material, this time coming in a different but just as sparse set up: piano and sine waves mark this sorta-remi...view item »

Harry Partch, Gate 5 Ensemble
And On The Seventh Day Petals Fell In Petaluma

To mark its 50th anniversary and the first full reissue for the record in those five decades, it was high time 'And On The Seventh Day Petals Fell In Petaluma' was re-pressed onto lovely crisp new 180-gram vinyl. Previously only excerpted, it's a rare instrumental record from Partch; his sparse and skeletal rhythms perf...view item »

Pierre Henry
Polyphonies

This is a massive testament to the one of the most innovative and influential bodies of work in 20th century music. Pierre Henry (who died in 2017 at the age of 89) was one of the pioneers of musique concrète. His work and ideas resonate through the spectrum of electronic music, from tape collage to the theme from an...view item »

Yeah You‎
VHOD

You want father/daughter lo-fi noise pop on cassette? Well Yeah You have just the thing for you, yeah, you. Distorted beats and synths melded with field recordings and stream-of-consciousness lyrics, recorded ostensibly anywhere - roadsides, car parks, and really wherever takes their fancy when out and about. VHOD, the title of ...view item »

Barry Adamson
Oedipus Schmoedipus

Barry Adamson’s records are getting the reissue treatment thanks to Mute. Adamson is currently a member of Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds (the man himself guests on a track here), but in the mid-90s, when Oedipus Schmoedipus was released, Adamson was...view item »

Kaori Suzuki

Sperm
50th Erection I ‐ Collected Works 1967‐1970

Sir Richard Bishop / Ava Mendoza
Ivory Tower (Hanuman)

On this limited vinyl split LP, Sun City Girls icon Sir Richard Bishop plays alongside another avant-garde guitarist, Ava Mendoza.

Peter Brotzmann / Harry Miller / Louis Moholo
The Nearer The Bone, The Sweeter the Meat

Legendary saxophonist Peter Brotzmann meets two South African musicians on a reissue of this classic FMP session on Cien Fuegos. Brotzmann deploys his full range of reeds, from the lows of the bass clarinet to the dizzy highs of the soprano sax. Harry Miller grinds away on his d...view item »

Zu
Goodnight, Civilization

Here’s a short but sweet one-sided etched 12” from Zu. It’s only got about 10 minutes of music on it which could easily have been squeezed onto a 7” but never mind that, what’s here is really good. This trio feature The Locust’s Gabe Serbian on drums and harsh jazzer Massimo ...view item »

Tashi Dorji & Tyler Damon
Leave No Trace (Live In St. Louis)

Two people, one with guitar and one with a drum kit. It’s a set-up ripe with potential for instant-composition from magic, and Tashi Dorji and Tyler Damon take their starting place and really run with it. Leave No Trace, recorded live in front of an audience in St. Louis, is a fierce, tight, inven...view item »

Eraldo Bernocchi & Chihei Hatakeyama
Solitary Universe

Two masters at subtle guitar work joined forces to lay down these five pieces. Chihei Hatakeyama and Eraldo Bernocchi curve and twirl their ambient guitar lines around one another, creating what we might...view item »

Deux Filles
Silence & Wisdom / Double Happiness

Deux Filles are one of those jolly good wheezes that some musicians like to play: Simon Fisher Turner and Colin Lloyd Turner made up a dramatic back-story about French teenagers which is worth a read, but these 2 albums (presented here together) are entirely their own work. Both 1982’s ...view item »

Oren Ambarchi
Live Knots

‘Knots’ was of course the half-hour centerpiece of Oren Ambarchi’s excellent Audience Of One album, a massive piece that spirals out from a guitar / drums core into a number of other instrumental areas. Now PAN are releasing two live versions, each with a different ensemble and focusing on different el...view item »

Etant Donnés with Michael Gira
Offenbarung und Untergang

Reissue of a 1999 collaboration between the French post-industrial experimentalists and Swans’ frontman. The album sets Gira’s spoken and sung recital of a text by Austrian poet Georg Trakl amid profoundly bleak atmospheres. Mark Cunningham...view item »

Yair Elazar Glotman
Études

Yair Elazar Glotman learned to play contrabass the way that classical music demands: practice toward an intuitive understanding of performance. As always, though, his work is critical of what we're taught to remember music as being, and Études is an aggressive exploration of his instrument free of its pre-establish...view item »

Roberto Musci / Giovanni Venosta

L. Pierre
1948-

L.Pierre, who we can reveal is in fact Arab Strap’s Aidan Moffat, is releasing a very interesting new project here. 1948- is made entirely from samples of the first ever 33 ⅓ 12” record, a 1948 recording of a Mendelssohn concerto. What’s more, it is ...view item »

Thor & Friends
The Subversive Nature of Kindness

Thor Harris: Swans’ former charismatic percussionist, and potential future governor of Texas. Chief friends are marimba player Peggy Ghorbani and multi-instrumentalist Sarah “Goat” Gautier. Their music is rooted in tonal percussion and often recalls minimalists...view item »

Emptyset
Signal

Emptyset continue to tunnel into the nature of sound and space with Signal, a document of a live performance. The group broadcast their sounds from the venue, via radio transmitters, over thousands of miles and back to the venue again, to see how the transmission through the atmosphere altered the sound. Conceptually ri...view item »

Lasry-Baschet
Les Nouvelles Structures Sonores

Names that occupy a similar space to Jean Jacques Perry, Mort Garson and indeed Delia Derbyshire, the Lasry-Bachet group were known for their early experiments in music and sound, linking high forms of artistic expression with a melodiousness that at the time would be called fut...view item »

Harry Bertoia
Clear Sounds / Perfetta

The ‘Sonambient’ sound sculptures of Harry Bertoia are astonishing things: the sleeve art for this new release gives you an insight into the roomfuls of shimmering metals Bertoia designed. Clear Sounds and Perfetta are two particularly remarkable, highly minimal performances, never ...view item »

Alvin Lucier
Criss Cross / Hanover

The composer, best known for his 1970  tape piece I Am Sitting in a Room, composed Criss-Cross for the twin electric guitars of Stephen O’Malley and Oren Ambarchi.

Peter Wright
Orbit

This is the first I've heard of NZ ambient bod Peter Wright but apparently his last release was a mammoth 2CD thing so I guess this time he's easing up a little on the quantity, offering up a single LP with nearly 40 minutes of d...view item »

The Thing with Thurston Moore
Live

The thing with Thurston Moore is that he's fairly tall. The Thing with Thurston Moore is a collaboration between the lanky, non-ageing Sonic Youth controller and the madcap Scandinavian free-jazz monsters. Whilst on tour they popped into Thurston's local Cafe Oto and invited the mopheaded guitar mangler on stage to make a right old racket.  ...view item »

Moondog with Julie Andrews and Martyn Green
Tell it Again - Songs Of Sense And Nonsense

Oddbod waxing of the week has to be this 1950s album by Julie Andrews & Martyn Green ft. Moondog. Of course, back in the day, no-one really gave much of a fig for a blind pagan wizard percussionist. Julie was all the rage then, much like Cheryl Cole is now. Except she was a tad posher. So the original sleeve of 'Tell it Again' featured just his...view item »

NPVR
33 33

Two torchbearers of electronic sound sculpting come together on Mego, treating us to an album of fine grain sonic manipulation. There's a distinct restraint at play, forming space for the audio information to sit exposed, with cautious drum programming juxtaposed against wild glitches and robotic chatter....view item »

Noya Rao
Icaros

Icaros is the debut album by Leeds quartet Noya Rao. The group are headed up by Tom Henry, who, as a producer has worked with Cosima and Yellow Days. Taking their influences from jazz, hip-hop and electronic music, they blend all three with dub to make dreamy, sou...view item »

Sonic Youth With Mats Gustafsson and Merzbow
Andre Sider af Sonic Youth

I love Sonic Youth's SYR series because, with a couple of exceptions, they've all been self-indulgent toss. They get it all out of their systems then come along with a 'proper' new LP that walks up to every other band while they're busy doing bench presses, holds them down and pumps in their face. It's utilitarian noodling and I, for one, am very g...view item »

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Sunset Mission

Vintage dark-ambient-noir-jazz-doom from the German masters of the field, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore. Sunset Mission is their 2000 album, the first in which saxophone appears. No lively jaunts here though: smooth black darkness is the way of Bohren. This moody work is reissued on CD and on gatefold-h...view item »

The One Ensemble
Saint Seven

The One Ensemble created Saint Seven to be played ‘in the round’. Folk and chamber music are combined with experimental and improvised passages. The musicians sing, play cello, guitar, bass clarinet, accordion, drums and percussion creating a piece of music that is austere at times but then will explode into a full-o...view item »

Kan​ ​Mikami​ ​/​ ​John Edwards​ ​/​ ​Alex​ ​Nielson
​Live​ ​at​ ​Cafe​ ​Oto

Kan Mikami is sometimes simplistically portrayed as the Japanese Bob Dylan, but he’s been an important figure in his homeland since the 70s. International renown has perhaps been limited by the language barrier versus his musically sparse, lyric-heavy songs. However that&rsq...view item »

Sparks
Kimono My House

Demented electro-pop duo Sparks celebrate 40 years of sharp wit and falsetto crooning.

Dakota Suite, David Darling & Quentin Sirjacq
Vallisa

If I had to review a Dakota Suite album I'd probably be a little nervous. The man Hooton has been known to darken our doors on several occasions as Phil has been flogging his wares quietly, yet consistently for nigh on 15 years. If I was to review the new Dakota Suite album I'd not know what to expect, their sleeves are normally very bleak, spor...view item »

Jozef Van Wissem
Nobody Living Can Ever Make Me Turn Back

Jozef Van Wissem, with his customised lute, can always be relied upon to deliver a gothically romantic atmosphere with his compositions, and Nobody Living Can Ever Make Me Turn Back (with track titles that include ‘The Empty Cup Of Suffering’ and ‘Out Bones Lie Scattered Before The Pit’) fully de...view item »

Michael Begg
TITAN: A Crane Is A Bridge

For TITAN: A Crane is a Bridge, sound artist Michael Begg enlists the gigantic, titular Titan crane of Clydebank in Scotland both as a performance space and as an instrument. In the windy, beefy lattice frames and oily joints of the towering device, Begg teases out all sorts of metallic resonances and ironclad drones. O...view item »

Leafcutter John, Devon Loch and Claire Orme

Luc Ferrari
Tinguely 1967

Wow! This amazing musique concrete material from maestro Luc Ferrari has never previously been released! Tinguely 1967 and Dernier Matin d’Edgar-Allan Poe were composed for film and TV pieces, and show what Ferrari could do when working to a moving image. These two pieces will feature in ...view item »

Scott Walker
Tilt

Well, I’ve been given the mammoth task of reviewing this absolutely now legendary album by Scott Walker, Tilt. Although many people think they are familiar with Scott’s music, this will change their perception entirely; although his velvet voice is still there, this can be a very uncomfortabl...view item »

David Grubbs
Creep Mission

David Grubbs, one of the two masterminds behind Gastr Del Sol as well as a superb music writer, presents an album of explorative guitar pieces, sketched out with the assistance of boundary-pushers like Eli Keszler on drums and Nate Wooley on trumpet. Partially composed and parti...view item »

George Harrison
Electronic Sound

Some may believe that George Harrison was a somewhat underrated Beatle, but he really was one of the more sophisticated members. His ashes were cremated in a traditional Hindu service in India, which went hand in hand with his beliefs as a human - love and peace, I guess. Upon its release back in 1969 the otherworldly Moog soundscapes of...view item »

Drew McDowall

Loren Connors
Blues The 'Dark Paintings' of Mark Rothko

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 co...view item »

ORE
Belatedly

Ore is Sam Underwood’s brass doom project, in which tubas and trombones and the like are massed together into pieces that throb with the same elemental power as the most interesting end of doom metal, though of course with a totally different textural palette. No novelty here, just amazing original music. ...view item »

Colin Potter
The Abominable Slowman

Some puns are funny, others aren’t, and some are rooted in reality. Coming together a glacial pace, The Abominable Slowman was recorded over the past twenty years and is a dense concoction of noise, rhythm, and patience. Colin Potter’s second full-length album boils down to a mix of ambient soundscapes and h...view item »

Current 93
HoneySuckle Æons

A 2011 suite of sound-weird from Current 93, now reissued on gold vinyl. The band’s line-up for Honeysuckle Aeons includes regulars Andrew Liles and David Tibet as well as Baby Dee and Armen Ra. The tone is mournful and introspective, and the musi...view item »

Richard Youngs
Autumn Response

In which our hero Richard Youngs records two different takes of each song on the record, and overlays them on top of each other. The result is captivating, Youngs’ delicate folkish songs sometimes clashing, sometimes harmonising, sometimes echoing each other. Seriously, this record could have been a car cr...view item »

Bobb Trimble
Iron Curtain Innocence

This is Bobb Trimble's first album from 1980. I found this artist and album through the book 'The Best Music You've Never Heard Before' and much like anything of that ilk that are hits and misses but this is a solid hit. If you took the haunting, crazy of Sid Barrett and put that with Gilmor's guitars of Animals you'd have the right ingredients ...view item »

Bobb Trimble
Harvest of Dreams

Ask the proverbial man on the street to name a psychedelic band and he'd probably say The Grateful Dead, or possibly The Beatles circa Sgt. Pepper. This is nothing like The Dead, or The Beatles, although Bobb is obviously a Beatles fan. What does Harvest of Dreams sound like? Try a combination of homemade new wave singer-songwriter with tons of ...view item »

Adriano Zanni
Disappearing

A grand return to the Boring Machines label sees Adriano Zanni dive into oppressive soundscapes, densely composed, but lightly ornamented with field recordings, whispered words and micro processes. It's a deeply entrancing album, made ever more so when the processing over spills into outright abstraction....view item »

Martina Lussi
Selected Ambient

These works by Martina Lussi are named for various gemstones, lending a slight touch of the mystical to the sound compositions we hear. Selected Ambient isn’t ambient in a basic generic way (there is quite a lot going on in some of these pieces), but it does have a thoughtful power to it. LP release on Hallow Grou...view item »

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Geisterfaust

In 2005, noire-doom-jazz ensemble Bohren & Der Club Of Gore decided to get even slower and sparser than they had been previously (which was already pretty slow and sparse). Geisterfaust is a one hour span of beautiful crawl for long dark nights. Reissued on CD and, for the first time, on vinyl. From Play It Again Sa...view item »

Yoko Ono
Plastic Ono Band

Fronted with bizarre, eery screeching, Yoko Ono's (widow of John Lennon) avant-garde offering Plastic Ono is finally reissued on vinyl. Originally released way back in 1971, the album has a classic yet timeless sound that has influenced a host of musicians throughout the decades.&nb...view item »
