Jason Sharp
A Boat Upon Its Blood

Constellation's fall batch includes a new signing in Jason Sharp, whose music feels both quintessentially out-Montreal and also incredibly fresh: a saxophonist and sound artist, his music absorbs drone, techno and musique concrete, weaving together instrumental anthologies that cross all three paths. There are horrendo...view item »

Rob Magill
The Owl and The Pussycat

The Owl And The Pussycat is the first vinyl release for Rob Magill, a resident of Southern California who seems to be able to turn his hand to most arty things - musical composition, playing every instrument under the sun, poetry, painting and even owning his own label.

Christopher Tignor
Along a Vanishing Plane

Laura Cannell
Simultaneous Flight Movement

Laura Cannell is chiefly a violin player who has a dark swooping style that sounds like dark birds flying over a desolate beach.

Christer Bothén
Ljudskulptur För 5

A great logical step for fans of Colin Stetson. Christer Bothén builds micro worlds of percussive drones and pops through his reeds. Immersive headpone stuff where the silence is almost as important. Best known known for his work with Fire! Orchestra and collaborating with Don Cherry...view item »

Ateleia / Benjamin Curtis

I Had Myself A Nuclear Spring

Asa-Chang & Junray
Jun Ray Song Chang

Jun Ray Song Chang brought Asa-Chang (working here with Junray) to the attention of many back in 2001 when it was first release, thanks partly to the championing John Peel. The melding of East-Asian percussion, delicate melodies and tiny tweaks of electronic processing makes for an...view item »

Tomorrow The Rain Will Fall Upwards
Wreck His Days

This is the debut full length record from this curiously monikered and altogether mysterious collective. It's a wildly ambitious work that takes in astral psychedelics, blissed out dub, music concrete, pummelling soundtracks and what the press release describes as death jazz. Should appeal to fans of Arthur Russell, Swan...view item »

Petrels
Jörð

New album from Petrels, aka Oliver Barrett. Jör∂ drags the listener in straight away with a swooning choral arrangement that rises up out of a windy drone, and it carries on from that point with woodwinds, pop songs, electronics and all sorts, all swirling cinematically. Released by Denovali....view item »

Andrew Liles
The Power Elite

You’d be foolish to try and predict every eclectic move of Nurse With Wound and Current 93 affiliate Andrew Liles, but even so, the contemporary composition of The Power Elite is surprising. Heavyweight politics and heavyweight modernist music. Released by Steven Stapleton...view item »

Squarepusher x Z-Machines
Music for Robots

If you’ve seen the video for this on Youtube then you’ll know all about it but for those of you that don’t here’s a quick summary, Kenjiro Matsuo and a team of Japanese Roboticists invent a band consisting entirely of robots to play organic musical instruments ie. guitar, drums and keyboards, Z - Machines was born and the...view item »

Scott Walker
The Childhood of a Leader - Original Soundtrack

Wow! Brand new Scott Walker! The avant-crooner legend has been enlisted to create a full-blown orchestral score to Brady Corbet’s The Childhood of a Leader, a Satre adaptation set in 1919. There’s plenty of the dissonance of late-period Walker at play here, ...view item »

Susan Matthews
From Veliko

Inspired by a visit to the "medieval capital of Bulgaria", Susan Matthews has made three pieces with the abstract song balladry of Grouper or Ilyas Ahmed, her piano and electronics meandering through light fuzz bursts -- occasionally, her pieces become more formally songbased, with the...view item »

Ian William Craig
Centres

Ever-prolific tape chemist Ian William Craig is readying yet another record of gorgeous crackle pop. Having broken our hearts with the fragmented opera loops of A Turn of Breath in 2014, he's since released the understated but equally beautiful Cradle For The Wanting ...view item »

Overtone Ensemble
Overtone Ensemble

The name of The Overtone Ensemble does not lie: this group work with instruments that create shimmering clouds of overtones, carefully controlled through microtonal tuning and tactical combinations. 12 aluminum rods are at the centre of their set-up, which also includes bells and wine glasses: and...view item »

DW Robertson
Disco Carousel Vol.1

DW Robertson’s eccentric stylings might be more familiar to you under the name Ergo Phizmiz, but there comes a time in every artist’s life when they must shed their monikers... The inventiveness and humour of Phizmiz is still very much present though: Disco Carousel Vol. 1 i...view item »

el-g
Mauve Zone

Enjoy the strange sounds of el-g, a veteran weirdo and member of Orgue Agnes and Opera Mort. Mauve Zone is a little difficult to describe, since it seems to morph into a new shape every few moments, sounds never solidifying beyond the point of new-born putty before altering again. But w...view item »

Costes
Pas Encore Mort

Wild, ridiculous, dangerous, bold artist Costes is one of a kind, performing whatever demented notions crawl into his head. He’s recorded and released over 70 albums, and this is another one. Pas Encore Mort is a fairly song-based record, with the French mutterings of Costes playing out over alter...view item »

Wolf Eyes
I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces

Weird, a Wolf Eyes album on Jack White’s Third Man Records… I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces is the first ‘proper’ Wolf Eyes album to showcase their late-period Trip Metal (sorry John Olson, I mean TR1p Met@L!!1!) style, and while it is pretty dam...view item »

Steve Jansen

Oneohtrix Point Never/ Tomutonttu
Likaiset Pilvet / Wayland Lincoln Border

Tour 7" time! For the tour which most of us will be sampling down the road this Friday eve! Exciting times for which this 7" serves as a delightful appetiser. Tomutonttu released a couple of dementedly fantastic CDs on Fonal not long back that got Brian frothing at the pants and 'Likaiset Pilvet' keeps up the quality, mangling electronic sounds ...view item »

Ichi
Maru

ICHI is a Bristol-based, Japanese-born musician who makes a ridiculously dense and rich experimental pop music, that also taps into his new home’s post-punk and dub cultures. Maru's surreal mash of drones, acapella sounds, homemade instruments and samples is incredibly hard to categorise, so you shoul...view item »

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
A Year With 13 Moons

Maker of the abstract and turner of the world's axis, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is one of musique concrète's rocks, using reel to reel tapes and field recordings of the area around his hometown to make half-compositions. He's pretty much always recording the sounds of his life, kind of like if W...view item »

Minamo + Lawrence English
A Path Less Travelled

I'm liking the new Room 40 stuff. The last few releases have been great and this one sounds pretty smart as well. The album was recorded in Tokyo and Brisbane and it's a beautifully textured listen. The opener 'The Path' has elements of Brian Eno in there in amidst some lush drones and some acoustic guitar. The album has that very twinkly Japane...view item »

Charalambides
Strangle The Wretched Heavens

Charalambides are Tom and Christina Carter, and they have been exploring obscure regions of psychedelic improvised guitar for many years now. The deep jams of Strangle The Wretched Heavers were recorded in the mid-1990’s, and yet have retained their special feelin...view item »

Charlie Ulyatt
Dead Birds

Sparse and haunting solo guitar pieces hailing from Lincolnshire. These delicate pieces have a similar lonely reflective quality as something written Caught In The Wake of Forever. Capturing the area, and the mental state your surroundings put you. Lightly driven guitar rings out into an almost mantra like drone, slowing your th...view item »

Sanjuro77
errorprone

This ‘errorprone’ limited edition cassette self released by the artist is the debut album from Manchester's Sanjuro77 -- but this guy is no newcomer to experimental electronic music. He’s been at it for 25 years and this album really shows he’s certainly no n...view item »

Matt Elliott
The Mess We Made

I don't know what the fuck to make of this new Matt Elliott album. Its sounds like scary circus music. Really sinister. Sounds kind of French which is apt as France is where Mr Elliott currently resides with lady and child. But despite this picture of domesticity this is one of the most dark twi...view item »

James Ginzburg & Yair Elazar Glotman
Nimbes

The art instillation 'Nimbes' was created between James Ginzburg, Yair Elazar Glotman and Joanie Lemercier, a visual undertaking that was projected around a "360 degree dome" in Canada. Seriously, you're gonna have to turn your head a lot if you want to take the whole thing in; the music aims to be as panoramic by reverberating with the same omn...view item »

James Ferraro
Rerex

Former the Skaters chap and actual skater James Ferraro has forged an idiosyncratic path over the last few years producing a dazzling array of musical styles and in fact winning the coveted the Wire Album of the Year in 2011. 'Rerex' is a wildly ambitious three hour extravaganza using cheap casios, loops and found sounds to lull...view item »

Anna Homler and Steve Moshier
Breadwoman & Other Tales

A project as unusual as its name, Breadwoman & Other Tales is a collaboration between Anna Homler and Steve Moshier, each veterans of the performative avant-garde. Homler inhabits the voice of Breadwoman with wordless chants, supported by Moshier’s tw...view item »

DJ R Tango
Road to Freedom

Road To Freedom is the first time ever that the work of DJ R Tango has been properly released: exciting times. The Hungarian producer conjures some potent landscapes out of what sounds like a shed-full of battered electronics: over the course of the album, brutal distorted beats fall back to allow synth-ambience to shin...view item »

Helm & Decimus
We Will Meet At Other Human Parties

Helm (of Luke Younger and Alter Records) & Decimus (Put Murano, NNCK, Kellipah) sees the two come together for a collaborative album, interestingly called; We Will Meet At Other Human Parties.

Nurse With Wound
Dark Fat

Dark Fat is what happens when Nurse With Wound elect to record all their live performances for a whole decade and then turn their curious eyes to the task of forming some new creature from the audio morass.

Mats Gustafsson
Piano Mating

Fire-blowing saxophonist Mats Gustafsson has been tweaking away at electronics for quite a while now, but this is the first time I’ve heard him step away from the reeds entirely. On Piano Mating he uses an obscure quasi-instrument called the Pianomate to craft two sides of hovering tonal drones: great, and unexpec...view item »

AGF
Kon​:​3p>UTION to: e​[​VOL​]​ution

Kon:3p>UTION to: e[VOL]ution is an experimental album by producer and solo artist AGF. It’s his 9th solo album and his 30th studio album as a producer. It’s a strange, disjointed mix of electronic sounds and samples. It can be quite sinister with a lot of static and gurgling. An uneasy listen.&nbs...view item »

Jon Mueller
Tongues

Terrifying sleeve, terrifying music from the rather intense pen of Jon Mueller. Now we all remember Mueller from last years Death Ensemble record.

Af Ursin
Aura Legato

Auro Legato was initially released in 2005 by Af Ursin’s own private press imprint La Scie Doree. The limited run of 350 copies meant that, even as this album’s reputation grew, few were able to pick up this semi-abstract suite of drones, folk, jazz, and whatever ...view item »

Val Denham
I Saw Myself in Your Dreams Last Night

Bradford dwelling artist Val Denham is a truly unique proposition.

Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 1: Études for Acoustic Guitar

David First picks up his acoustic guitar for this release, the first in what promises to be a series.

Chris Herbert
Katushki

Chris Herbert is a sound architect with a nice, intuitive approach: he is equally adept dealing with melodic material as he is pure texture, and Katushki holds the ear’s attention throughout.

AJ Cornell & Tim Darcy
Too Significant To Ignore

Exciting stuff here, as Tim Darcy, the lithe frontman of Ought, teams up with improviser AJ Cornell for a tape of abstract atmospheres and paranoid spoken word.
