Charlemagne Palestine & Rrose
The Goldennn Meeenn + Sheeenn

The multiple letter way of spelling is irritating but it's one of the few derogatory things you can say about Charlemagne Palestine. Here he collaborates with Rrose (he's at it too) for a rendition of Palestine's classic 1976 era work The Golden Mean as performed at the Festival Variations in Nantes in March 2018. Expect even more notes than letters.

Line Spectrum
Bruma

Line Spectrum is the latest boundary-pushing sonic exploration project from Ukranian, Oleg Puzan. Bruma is slowly evolving minimalism - so minimal in places that there are silent passages - that encapsulates field recordings and manipulated sounds. This will take you to a place where nature and tranquility are one and the same. Puzan has also released records as Dronny Darko via Cryo Chamber.

I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral

TFW you Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral. This dramatically-named outfit belongs to Faust guitarist Amaury Cambuzat. The vibe for debut release I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is high-intensity mega-drone, with deeply-treated guitar activity conjuring up fifty-minutes of soundscaping over just two tracks. Released by Dirter.

Louise Landes Levi
Ikiru or The Wanderer

Louise Landes Levi is worried about the butterfly. And who wouldn't be! I'm sure almost all of us have fond memories of heading to the Butterfly House for birthday parties when we were kids. Levi has channeled her concern into Ikiru or The Wanderer, a rare solo effort from this vital musical traveller. 

Loren Connors
The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V

Releases of the music of Loren Connors are always welcome, and they are especially so when they continue a remarkable suite of records intended as a tribute of sorts to Miles Davis. The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V is a typical example of Connors’ near-spiritual craft with the electric guitar: beautiful. 10” record, released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies by Family Vineyard.

There Where the Avalanche Stops

Held over the course of one week every five years, the Festivali Folkloric Kombelar is held in a mountain castle in Gjirokastra in southern Albania, and plays host to some of the most interesting and talented folk musicians. There Where The Avalanche Stops collects 15 tracks from the 1988 edition of the festival.

Dan Melchior and P.G. Six
Exhibit A

The ever-questing Dan Melchior teams up with P.G. Six for this new LP. This Norman Records™ type-monkey is unfamiliar with Six’s work, but the fact that he’s in a group called Weeping Bong Band has instantly endeared him to me. His touches of keys, 12-string guitar and (yes) recorder provide a nice foil to Melchior’s acoustic musings on Exhibit A. Think Arab Strap and a wittier version of Jeff Mangum’s solo ditties.

Sarah Hennies
Sisters

Bespoke Slovakian label mappa (Diatribes, MP Hopkins) gave composer Sarah Hennies and vibraphone player Lenka Novosedlíková a brief for this new record - compose something that would fill the space of a decrepit-yet-beautiful church they had found in the tiny village of Kyjatice. Sisters, the resulting LP, is a wonderfully stilling experience. Novosedlíková’s vibraphone resonates gorgeously in the space, and Hennies’ eerily beautiful music is reminiscent of Bernard Herrmann or Terry Riley.

Kutcha Butcha
NDYA

Kutcha Butcha is the solo project of Sebastian Rochford, the remarkable drummer behind outfits like Acoustic Ladyland and Polar Bear. NDYA is 100% Rochford (he produced and mixed it too), and features an international range of sounds from this ever-inventive sound producer. Out on Half Baked Bread Records.

Silences
Silences EP

You may have heard James Green and Nick Dawson on their monthly radio show on the Southend-based internet radio station Shipfullofbombs.co.uk. That is just one of many things on which the pair have collaborated. Silences is their latest project and this self-titled EP is their first in a number of releases. They recorded the improvised EP in their native Southend-on-Sea using guitars, piano, various vintage synths and twiddly boxes. Listen out for a kazoo, too.

Régis Renouard Larivière
Contrée

Editions Mego offshoot Recollection GRM (Bernard Parmegiani, Luc Ferrari) release this new collection from French electroacoustician Régis Renouard Larivière. Contrée is an LP of quizzical, sometimes eerie voyages into unknown noise. Numbers like the title track are funny little things in the best Stockhausen tradition.

James Rushford
The Body's Night

Sold out - sorry!

Graham Dunning
Keg / Bulkhead

Graham Dunning puts the turntables to one side for a highly focused release on the Courier label. All sounds on Keg / Bulkhead’s two lengthy tracks are derived from a snare drum, which is activated using a motor and various objects for incessant textural fun. 'Keg' has a jackhammer motor rhythm at its core, while 'Bulkhead' is more of a sheer drone. Cassette release.

Bowditch
Alchemy 4

Alchemy 4 by Bowditch is a series of pieces created for an exhibition in Colchester, Essex. Comprising entirely of sounds found in one particular building, Alchemy 4 is a work that conveys an alienating sense of place. Listen for the way that the sound of fire alarm bells, typically used in an entirely practical purpose, has been turned on its head in an oddly beautiful way. 

Diacritical Mark
Lozenges (Regular Strength)

Improvised and recorded partly on an iPad, Diacritical Mark's new experimental piece Lozenges, suggests a reluctant acceptance in engaging with modern culture. It's an interesting dichotomy, then, that this is being released on tape. Although the press release highlights how Lozanges concentrates on the 'futility of trying to cope with regular life experiences', this tape is a wholly engaging and enjoyable listen.

Scott Walker
5 Classic Albums

An irresistible bundle deal from Universal here: a full brace of early Scott Walker albums! That’s Scott 1, Scott 2, Scott 3, Scott 4 and Til’ The Band Comes In (he really dropped the ball on naming that last one eh?). Genuinely classic 60’s pop from the remarkable Walker mark one. 5CD box-set available for a shockingly low price.

Current 93
Invocations Of Almost

The press release suggests Current 93 have dreamt their latest album, Invocations Of Almost, but I can assure you that it exists in the physical world too. The music here is made to accompany David Tibet’s art exhibition. In a typical Current 93-style move the CD version contains 59 minutes of music as Tibet turns 59 years old. The vinyl edition is slightly shorter in duration.

Prairie WWWW
Wu Hai

Prairie WWWW are a Taiwanese band with bold instincts and an experimental approach to folk sounds. Their Wu Hai EP slinks around musical spaces that often lapse into ambient, but might also evolve into poetry, flute / synth tunes, or percussive marching. Well worth turning an ear to this group, they are doing interesting things. Issued by Guruguru Brain.

Oglon Day

Since there ain't much at all online about this upcoming collaboration between various psych/electronic luminaries, all I can really say is that firstly the cover is superb (it's what covers should look like), and, secondly, it sounds from the press release like a vital and visceral musical experience that will probably take in psychedelia, krautrock, and experimental electronica.

Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith
The Peyote Dance

The Peyote Dance is an album inspired by French poet Antonin Artaud's book of the same name. It was created by Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith on improvised spoken word vocals. The album whips up a drug-fueled storm with only Smith as our guide. Indeed it's meant to, Artaud's book details his experiences of peyote in Mexico. On Bella Union.

Renaldo & The Loaf
Songs For Swinging Larvae / Songs From The Surgery

2xLP package containing the first proper studio effort from cult experimental heroes Renaldo and the Loaf. Now re-mastered for vinyl, the subversive pop madness of 1981’s Songs For Swinging Larvae helped establish the duo’s underground following, and it’s accompanied here by a new LP of different versions and unheard bonus tracks titled Songs From the Surgery.

9T Antiope & Siavash Amini
Harmistice

Four gripping works of odd contradictions, ambiguity and intensity - just as the punning title promises - from an Iranian team-up of sombre duo 9T Antiope and the ever-busy Siavash Amini. As ever with 9T, lyricist Sara Bigdeli Shamloo gives, with a clear and handsome voice, expressive textuality to a style where it is usually absent.

Keiji Haino & Charles Hayward
A Loss Permitted To Open Its Eyes For But Three Hours And There Glimpsed, Finally In Focus A Mystery That Begs...

Now THIS looks interesting. Experimental pioneer Keiji Haino (a collaborator with Faust, Boris, and Stephen O'Malley, among other things) and Charles Hayward (founding member of legendary experimental outfit This Heat) came together in 2016 to play an improvisational set at the Copeland Gallery in London. Thankfully, it was recorded and now Thirty Three Thirty Three are putting that recording out - wonderful news for fans of all things a bit weird. 

Rimarimba
On Dry Land

Freedom To Spend’s run of Rimarimba reissues continues with the band’s 1984 LP On Dry Land. With this record Robert Cox further explores the curious fourth-world sound that he’d begun to develop on Beyond The Horizon the previous year. As such, On Dry Land is pitched somewhere between the sampling experiments of Eno, Byrne and Cale, Midori Takada’s new age minimalism and 23 Skidoo’s avant-rock.

Object Collection
You Are Under Our Space Control

The experimental group Object Collection follow up their Fugazi opera with a remarkable suite of wide-ranging homemade modernism. This ‘space-opera’ involves texts by Sun Ra, astronomers and fictional space travellers, as well as sonic allusions to John Cage, sci-fi sound palettes, and avant-electroacoustics. There’s a lot going on in You Are Under Our Space Control, though it also feels eminently personal and within reach. Out on Slip.

“Blue” Gene Tyranny
Out Of The Blue

The first-ever vinyl reissue for “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s 1978 debut album, and newly re-mastered too. Out of the Blue managed to merge funk with futurism, turning familiar musical elements into something shocking and new. The four-track collection culminates in the side-long, 25-minute ‘A Letter From Home’.

Park Jiha
Philos

Park Jiha first came to our attention with 2018's Communion which was a compelling blend of traditional South Korean musicality with genres like jazz and ambient. On Philos she takes this same approach, but creates tracks of such great density that they can't help filling whatever room they're played in. On tak:til.

Laurence Pike
Holy Spring

Former Liars/Bill Callahan/DD Dumbo collaborator and Szun Waves member Laurence Pike drops his second solo LP via The Leaf Label (Snapped Ankles, The Comet Is Coming). Holy Spring bracingly combines free jazz, electronica, post-rock and the pagan classical composition of Igor Stravinsky. It’s no coincidence that Holy Spring shares a word with Stravinsky’s seminal Rite Of Spring. Tracks like ‘Drum Chant’ sound like something from Music From Memory if it had been plied with peyote. Really cool record.

Dane Law / Beachers
We Love You Come On Home / A Capella

Adam Parkinson aka Dane Law provides the first side of this split cassette - We Love You Come On Home, with Daryl Worthington aka Beachers giving us A Cappella on side two. Dane Law uses programs such as Pure Data and MSP to create his music. Conversely, Beachers uses found sounds alongside electronic composition creating contrasts in sound and themes. Limited to 50 copies.

Junkie Flamingos
Lemegeton Party

Junkie Flamingos is the sort-of-supergroup brainchild of musicians Luca Sigurtà, Alice Kundalini (She Spread Sorrow), and Daniele Delogu (Barbarian Pipe Band). Sitting in the blurry border regions between ambient and industrial music, Lemegeton Party is the outfit’s ethereal debut album.

Editions Mego present a well-earned reissue of the second album by Dome. And what, precisely is Dome? Well, that would be Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis of Wire, spinning off on a (yet) more experimental direction, with focus on utilising the studio itself for maximum effect. Dome 2 is essential listening for Wire fans and for everyone else, especially with this fetching remaster by Russell Haswell.

Tim Parkinson
Pleasure Island

Experimental composer Tim Parkinson loves to play, in every sense of the word, and thus a work titled Pleasure Island is an enticing prospect. This is actually Parkinson’s first work designed to be an album specifically, and it's a beguiling mixture of cheap electronic sound, group vocals, and bouncy drums. It’s a strange album, but in a very fun primary colour way. On Slip.
