Rafael Toral
Moon Field

Highly skilled and storied Portugese sound artist Rafael Toral makes a welcome appearance on Lawrence English’s Room40 label. The sound field Toral employs on this latest album is stark and clinical, but the tones vibrating within are etched deep with studious character, whether it’s a measured guitar drone or a clipped sax ramble.

The Residents
Please Do Not Steal It

Low Symphony

Philip Glass took three recordings from the sessions of 'Low' -- David Bowie's most famous collaboration with Brian Eno, and his first foray into kraut influenced rock (the first in his Berlin trilogy) -- and turned them into this symphony.

Mia Zabelka
Cellular Resonance

Mia Zabelka brings intensive and experimental approaches to the archetypally classical sound object of the violin, using both physical and digital extended techniques (prepared objects in the strings, howling, an array of live electronics) to hone her own instrumental language. On Cellular Resonance, she even has processing assistance from Lydia Lunch(!), making this a particularly noisy release of hers. Out on Little Crackd Rabbit.

Isnaj Dui
Poiesis

Isnaj Dui, aka experimental musician Katie English, presents her new full-length Poiesis. True to form, she continues to blend sparse motifs created from all sorts of electronic and acoustic sources. Her trademark Orientalist flute is present, if less so than previously. Slow and artful, English covers a spectrum from playful to quite sinister and tense. Poiesis comes in a hand-stamped sleeve, as with all Rural Colours releases.

raven
the night is dark, the night is silent, the night is bright, the night is loud

New album from Peter Hollo’s (Fourplay, Tangents) solo project Raven. At it’s heart, is his cello, creating loops, drones and ambiences. Backed up with electronics, sampling and piano Hollo doesn’t so much force two worlds together but molds them to fit seamlessly. Neo classical meets breakbeats, noise and glitches. Think Squarepusher meets Arthur Russell.

Aine O'Dwyer
Gallarais

Aine O'Dwyer's attempts to play high and low with drone have led her to such projects as playing organs in a church while the cleaners vacuumed the place. Her new record, Gallarais, sees her scope out yet another unique environmental setting, recorded in the depths of the Brunel tunnel for the sake of focusing in on its acoustics. The record uses both the sounds of the space and those that interweave with it, as incidental sounds from above ground find their way into the sound mass. A fascinating experiment.

Muslimgauze
Minaret Speaker

The Muslimgauze project is famed for two things in particular: a very high quality of work, and a very high quantity of work.

Penny Rimbaud

Mumbles
Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls

A curious creation from Sweden’s Mumbles here. Hinterpest: a story of wildflowers, buttonweeds and cattle skulls is a little story, telling a year in the life of some 1800s settlers. It is partly scripted, partly performed on instruments like violins, and feels like a wonderful experimental radio play, especially when handmade sound effects are deployed. Limited edition cassette on Leafdog.

Traditional Indian modes hybridise with exuberant contemporary experimentation for this luxurious foil-jacketed double vinyl from Japan four-piece SAICOBAB, courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Here, the band’s debut Sab Se Purani Bab comprises highly unusual, highly groovy combinations of sitar, double bass, various percussion and gamelan and the voice of Boredoms / OOIOO member YoshimiO.

Charlemagne Palestine
Strumming Music

Essential vinyl reissue of Charlemagne Palestine's seminal 1974 LP 'Strumming Music'. A mesmerising work of classic 20th Century minimalism, that originally appeared on the legendary French Shandar imprint (home to Philip Glass, Sun Ra, La Monte Young, Terry Riley etc.) Original copies sell for in excess of £160 so it's a real treat to have this truly transcendent work from this visionary artist once again available on it's original format. At once simple and complex, this profoundly beautiful music still sounds like a magic carpet ride through the heavens. A physically demanding performance recorded in his Manhattan loft - one which yields maximum beauty from the simplicity of his Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano and sustain pedal. A masterclass in the hypnotic beauty of repetition and nuance. This new edition has been licensed from FGL Productions, remastered by Equus, cut by Rashad Becker and includes an insert with liner notes by Julian Cowley.

Bark Psychosis
Hex

'Hex' formed part of the first wave of post-rock made whilst the likes of Mogwai were in short trousers but it has more in common with the splintered atmospheres of late period Talk Talk, a meticulously conceived masterpiece of mood and emotion. Now expertly re-mastered and re-pressed, this is an essential purchase for fans of exploratory, forward thinking music.

Kink Gong
Tibetan Buddhism Trip

So field recorder Laurent Jeanneau decided it was a good idea to release his recordings of ethnic minorities and their music under the name Kink Gong. He was wrong of course but either way we have a beguiling recording from Tibet and Yunnan in China which has been recomposed by Jeanneau in Berlin to form Tibetan Buddhism Trip.

Silvia Kastel
Air Lows

Formerly half of prolific industrial-tinged noise rockers Control Unit (who collaborated with Smegma, Gate and Factrix among others), Italy’s Silvia Kastel has been developing her solo style over the course of a few low-key releases, leading to this debut LP proper. The murky, minimalist atmosphere and post-Suicide vocal effects will be familiar from her past work, but with the influence of early synth pioneers (Morton Subotnick, Ruth White, Sun Ra) to the fore, and a wholly new line in skewed electronic pop.

Neil Campbell & Richard Youngs
Six Scores

Somewhere in a suburban drawing room two men of advancing years decided on a musical project like no other. Each would write music for the other to play then they would put it all together without the other hearing what the other had done. I think I got that right -- I'm as confused as you are. Anyway anything featuring these two former A Band members is bound to be unique and this may be the most unique of all.

William S. Burroughs
Nothing Here Now but the Recordings

Something of a lost classic, Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis P-Orridge and Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson hooked up with William S. Burroughs in his infamous NY pad ‘The Bunker’ in 1980 to assemble these recordings: spoken-word, cut-up sound collages and field recordings abound. Dais Records are making it available on vinyl for the first time since its 1981 release, but with only 1,000 records pressed you gotta be super-quick with this one.

Tashi Dorji

There's new music available from Hermit Hut, the label fronted by Six Organs Of Admittance's Ben Chasny, and of course it's improv. Tashi Dorji's self-titled record shows off his experiments with guitar, which can be as abstract as Chasny's, and as intricate as the work of John Fahey. Influenced by avant-garde musicians such as John Zorn, Dorji's style is often aggressive and focuses on the physical interactions a guitarist can have with their guitar -- just watch a video of him performing live and you'll see how much he can hurt one of those things. Essential for fans of experimental and abstract folk music.

Esmark is a new collaborative project from Alsen Rau (On + Brr/Scheich in China) and Nikolai Von Sallwitz (Karachi Files/Taprikk Sweezee). Working together on analogue equipment they created a huge catalogue of minimal experimental pieces, enough to cover a two parter debut release. Dark, isolated and hypnotic, there are element of Nate Young esque dread to it.

Moa Pillar
Hymns

Russian producer Moa Pillar returns with his second full length for the Full Of Nothing label. Taking his inspiration from folk music and the fringes of electronica and techno equally, Hymns stirs a mix of energised Alva Noto digital textures, with upbeat percussion and a human soul. His long tracks can break you down and build you back up again.

Psychic TV
Allegory & Self

Sacred Bones present a pair of Psychic TV reissues. Allegory & Self, released in 1984, is in fact one of the group’s most pop-friendly albums ever, a surprising move for the group led by Genesis P-Orridge and Alex Fergusson. Take this chance to relish the sound of the weirdos storming the charts! Out of print on vinyl for almost three decades, here is Allegory & Self reissued.

Greg Fox
The Gradual Progression

Most will know Greg Fox as the drummer from bands such as Liturgy, Zs, Ex Eye, and Guardian Alien. Needless to say his drumming extends well beyond proficient, and on his second solo album takes this to an Nth degree, working with several musicians and using sensors on his kit to trigger and manipulate sound sources. Think Charles Hayward on speed, listening to jazz.

Marcia Bassett & Samara Lubelski
Live NYC

Having teamed up previously, releasing albums on Kye and Golden Lab, Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, GHQ, Zaika) and Samara Lubelski (Augenmusik, Chelsea Light Moving) work incredibly well together. Experimental drones created using only a guitar and a violin through free improvisation.  Two live recordings, each lasting just under twenty minutes show the versatility of the performers and instruments.

Tout Croche
Super Silent

Tout Croche is two gentlemen from Huddersfield dealing in tactile droning and noise, running the gamut from pretty and immersive, to scuzzy and ramshackle. Opener Dead or Fade Away puts a spanner straight in the works with a garagey punked-up number recalling something like Tyvek, or an early, wild Sebadoh. It makes for a intriguing trip - and a limited one, at 300 wax copies on The Silent Howl.

Clive Bell
Asakusa Follies

Wire writer and all-round sound-explorer Clive Bell presents a suite of compositions for the shakuhachi, a variety of Japanese flute with a particularly rich reedy sound. Bell’s interactions with the instrument, clearly borne out of many years’ playing experience, reach deeply into the extended potential of the flute, producing some remarkable sounds. Asakusa Follies is released by Cuspeditions.

Isnaj Dui
Dioptrics

The next stage of Isnaj Dui's exploration of flute-driven ambient caress is Dioptrics, the Yorkshire-based artist's 9th solo release, this time back on Fbox Records. Things are about to get a little more dissonant, which means that there may be wince-inducing moments amongst the soothing toots and taps that you'd usually associate with the instrument. If 'usual' could ever be used to desribe Isnaj Dui.

Dialect
Loose Blooms

As the third full-length from Andrew PM Hunt, under the moniker of Dialect, Loose Blooms is a idiosyncratic twist of weirdness. Constantly anxious, riddled with paranoia around environmental disaster and human violence - this reaches depths that your run-of-the-mill pop could never reach, this is Hunt's life-affirming work.

Stefan Wesolowski
Rite of the End

Polish composer Stefan Wesołowski returns to french label Ici D'Ailleurs with a follow up to his 2015 album Kompleta. Lengthy drawn out pieces that allow you to step back and take it in as a whole, think Max Richter meeting Richard Skelton’s *AR project soundtracking Witch. Brooding, tense and stunningly cinematic modern classical.
