The Orb
No Sounds Are Out of Bounds

After two techno albums for Kompakt, The Orb’s main man Alex Patterson wanted to create something more expansive and less predictable. He was keen to work with more people and use more vocals too. The result is No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, The electronic duo’s guest-heavy 15th album. It features gues...view item »

Julee Cruise
Three Demos

It seems that David Lynch only started collaborating with Angelo Badalamenti when he couldn't get the rights to use This Mortal Coil's take on 'Song to the Siren' to use on Blue Velvet. The duo set about writing music in a similar vein and here we have the first fruits of their collaboratio...view item »

Roberto Musci
Tower of Silence

Milanese composer and multi-instrumentalist Roberto Musci must’ve become very restless by his late teens because in 1974, still aged only 18, he left his native Italy for the more exotic destinations of the African and Asian continents. On his travels (he would roam for the next decade or so), he curated sounds (but of course) using his ta...view item »

Terekke
Improvisational Loops

Quite the change. Since L.I.E.S. haven’t done a Lobster Theremin and created their own sub-label for snoozing yet, house savant Terekke has had to take his ambient particles over to Music from Memory. Having made something nice and meditative in ‘Plant Age’ late last year, this new record feels like a natural step towards pure,...view item »

Richard Riggs
Karoshi

On this cassette Richard Riggs has constructed a series of bleak dystopian drones which, according to the press release at least, evoke "the ruins, tendrils, vines and flora of a possible future in which the triumph of vegetation is total", and considering that the tracks have names like 'Half Rusted, Half Collapsed', 'The Waterless Flood' and '...view item »

The Black Dog
Black Daisy Wheel

Beloved electro-grumps The Black Dog are back with a pair of distinct albums on the theme of dismal, hysterical post-truth media society. Black Daisy Wheel tackles its dystopian theme in a subdued, ambient style, with uneasy textures and characteristically gloomy synths drifting about. Occasional beats find their way in...view item »

You + Your D. Metal Friend
Sonnier

Cico Beck and Markus Acher of the Notwist have teamed up as You + Your D. Metal Friend to create something of consistent, delicate beauty, in “Sonnier”. Tickled analogue synth, gently tinkling percussion under soft mallets and warm, undulating bass all combine over the course of the six ‘Sonnie...view item »

William Basinski
Silent Night

Cye Wood & Lisa Gerrard
The Trail Of Genghis Khan

Lisa Gerrard (of Dead Can Dance) and Cye Wood collaborated on this music as an accompaniment to the film The Trail Of Genghis Khan, a film about Mongolia seen through the perspective of an Australian man. Strings and voice build up the backbone of this record, creating sparsely beautifu...view item »

Virginia Wing / XAM Duo
Tomorrow’s Gift

I know I'm actually the worst person on the entire planet to review this record (sax problems)....but there's literally no-one else and I kind of know it's good because the other day it was playing in the office and I almost got off my chair to find out what it was.  One thing is for sure, it's the best thing to come out of Bradford...view item »

Will Long & DJ Sprinkles
Yellow / Ivory / Rust (Long Trax EP 3)

The third of three long form collaborations between original odd couple DJ Sprinkles and Will Long (Celer). These journeys into deep house have a basic home grown feel to them with simple beats accompanying drawn out synth notes and samples slathered on without a care in the world. It isn't sophisticated but sti...view item »

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need me to introduce this one to you. The album that broke Aphex Twin to the masses (relatively speaking), Selected Ambient Works 85-92 starts with two genuinely sublime pieces of music, ‘Xtal’ and ‘Tha’, which your collection literally cannot be without. The whole thing is grea...view item »

Modern Cosmology
Summer Long

Astonishingly this collaboration between Stereolab chanteuse Letitia Sadier and Brazilian band Mombojo has almost exactly the same name as the title of the recent Jane Weaver album. I mean, it’s unbelievable isn’t it? How does that happen?  Anyway thi...view item »

Deep Learning
Soft Confidence

A quiet, calming collection of ambiences and drones from Richard Pike’s D E E P L E A R N I N G project here. Soft Confidence is a tape that seeks to find solace from the hustle and bustle of the city (London) in which it was made. The slowly-shifting plates of tracks like ‘Stasis’ are beautifully tran...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 1

The legendary Klaus Schulze and his similarly synth-toting pal Pete Namlook loved their Pink Floyd, like any good psychedelic travellers would, and they carried this inspiration over to their Dark Side Of The Moog series. These ain’t covers though: the material here on Volume ...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 2

The legendary Klaus Schulze and his similarly synth-toting pal Pete Namlook loved their Pink Floyd, like any good psychedelic travellers would, and they carried this inspiration over to their Dark Side Of The Moog series, of which this is Volume Two. Subtitled A Saucerful o...view item »

Roger Eno
Dust of Stars

The press release manages to write several paragraphs about Roger Eno without mentioning his brother. We will though. It's our Brian's brother. But really he should be seen in his own right as a composer of note and here collaborates with producer Youth (Killing Joke, Embrace etc) where Roger's ...view item »

Le Fruit Vert
Passiflore

Le Fruit Vert are two people, layering up a carefully picked selection of field recordings, electronics, organ, and vocals, resulting in something that is in some sense pop, but in other senses something rather different. Passiflore was first released in 2013 on the humble cassette medium, but has now graduated to vinyl...view item »

Brücken / Froese

Beginn is new music from the new collaboration of Propaganda vocalist Claudia Brücken and Jerome Froese, the son of Edgar Froese and an active member of the Tangerine Dream dynasty in his own right. The pair manage to cut together a compelling mixt...view item »

Ambienti Coassiali
Vol. 1 - Room 1-6

In the late 1980s, armed with nothing but a Yamaha DX7 and a Revox A77 tape machine, the Italian ambient/concrète duo Capricorni Pneumatici produced this remarkable work of chillaxed FM synthesis under the name Ambienti Coassiali. This vinyl & DVD reissue makes this lush material available for the fir...view item »

Abul Mogard
Works

This whole story of an old Serbian gentleman recreating the sounds of his former employment in a Serbian factory sounds like an elaborate hoax to me. The music on this album, compiled from a pair of cassettes originally released on VCO sounds uncannily like Alessandro Cortini’s ‘Forse’ t...view item »

Michael Beharie & Teddy Rankin-Parker
A Heart From Your Shadow

Michael Beharie of Zs and Teddy Rankin-Parker (a cellist who has worked with Steve Reich, Pauline Oliveros and the like) have known each other for years, but this is their first collaboration, and what a well-considered treat it is. Energetic and intricate music...view item »

The Fires of Ork
The Fires of Ork

The Fires Of Ork is a collaboration between great ambient talent Biosphere and synth-explorer (and Klaus Schulze collaborator) Pete Namlook. Their two albums were released in 1993 and 2000, but you can get all of that material in one convenient package here on this two disc CD r...view item »

Talvihorros
Descent Into Delta

I like this guy. He's only been doing stuff for a few years but his first few releases really impressed me. I was looking forward to this baby and it doesn't disappoint! Again I'm gonna use the word soundscapes...actually fuck it...this guy creates beautiful dreamscapes! Ben (...view item »

Swoop And Cross
Stories Of Disintegration

Everything is ok.  The world might be about to explode but you'd be forgiven for thinking that everything is ok after listening to the soothing sounds of this latest release on Time Released Sound. London based Portuguese the wonderfully named Ruben Vale made these things and on opening track the twelve minute 'St No' has come up wi...view item »

Aukai
Branches of Sun

Ah, Aukai -- I liked his debut, self-titled LP which was I can clearly recall reviewing just under two years ago. Beautiful acoustic ambience which evoked late-afternoon strolls in the Autumn, watery rays of sunshine filtering through the branches as golden leaves softly tumble in the crisp air. Well, here’s Mar...view item »

Tropics
Nocturnal Souls

After LPs for Planet Mu and Innovative Leisure, the latest full-length from Chris Ward’s Tropics project drops via Plus Fours. Nocturnal Souls is an accomplished neo-soul album in the vein of his mates BADBADNOTGOOD - indeed, the celebrated jazz g...view item »

Biosphere
The Hilvarenbeek Recordings

The Hilvarenbeek Recordings are sourced from an organic (or ‘Bio’ - nice) farm in Holland, and were recorded and assembled for a project at Incubate. The field recordings of nature and bucolic human activity have been subtly pressed into the service of some classic-sounding Biosphere tracks, mixing ambient w...view item »

Cucina Povera
Hilja

I once referred to this as 'sound art'. Will I be referring to it after I have listened to the record all the way through? We shall see. The record starts with the track 'Demetra' and it really is just a collection of soothing and soft vocal noises over, well, soothing and soft music. The rest of the record pretty much follows suit. It can almos...view item »

Hilary Woods
Colt

With a record from doom metal legends Thou on the horizon, I’m starting to think Sacred Bones are entering a troublesome teens era where they’re gonna start releasing beyond the remit of their embryonic goth rock. Ever glum, but in different shades, they’re continuing to confuse me with this gorgeous ...view item »

Jon Hassell
Listening To Pictures (Pentimento Volume One)

First album in nine years from Fourth World aesthetic creator Jon Hassell. On Listening To Pictures he applies the painterly technique of pentimento, where new strokes unearth older ones, to a kind of ambient jazz. Using overdubs Hassell creates dense ever shifting layers that are an absolute joy on the ears. ...view item »

Pariah
Here From Where We Are

Pariah makes his long-awaited return with his even-longer-awaited debut LP. The reason that the one born Arthur Cayzer has taken so long to drop Here From Where We Are is down to the fact that, after getting a little jaded by music, he took time to rediscover the sounds that really made him tick. As such, this record is...view item »

Aukai
Aukai

First off: Wow. What a beauty. This guy! This record! So Markus Sieber has a back story (as most people but not all top-notch musicians do, but I digress). He spent the ‘90s in rock bands in East Germany, dropped his guitar for acting, then travelled to Mexico and ‘found’ music, again. Now he rolls out his leaf-strewn carpet wi...view item »

Scuba Death
The Worm At The Core

Further Records make everything around you look ominously blue in different degrees of dark on this utterly compelling record from Scuba Death. This is a dub techno offering that truly makes itself on atmosphere -- Ricardo Donoso proves himself, above all things, to make a great soundscape. Bolts of lightning...view item »

Rauelsson
Mirall

Sometimes I feel I’m lucky doing this job; I often think this, in fact… The latest person to remind me how fortunate I am -- bearing in mind it’s still only Tuesday -- wasn’t Phil (surprisingly) but this man called Rauelsson who makes beautiful neoclassical sounds concocted from electronic...view item »

Stefano Guzzetti
Short Stories. Piano Book Volume Two.

Stefano Guzzetti follows on from where he left off with Volume One of his Piano Book series, a set of simply stated solo piano pieces, recorded in the intimate inner space of home. These so-called ‘short stories’ do indeed feel like sparsely sketched-out little narratives, ready to probe late night ...view item »

Laura Jean
Devotion

Chapter Music present the latest LP from Australian Music Prize nominee and Jenny Hval collaborator Laura Jean. Devotion is quite a departure from the music of Jean’s previous albums, with the singer trading her previously folksy sound in for a peppy synth-pop look. Tracks like &l...view item »

Ian William Craig
A Turn of Breath - Extended

Q:What do you get if you cross an opera singer with a bedroom recording artist? A:Ian William Craig. A Turn Of Breath was the Canadian artist’s debut album and was noted for smashing two ostensibly wildly disparate genres together, opera and tape experiments. Craig’s voice adds both beautiful and mour...view item »

Bonobo
Days to Come

This album will definitely fall through the cracks even though it's easily one of 2006's best releases. While DJ Shadow is running around out churning out hypha garbage, Bonobo weighs in with this masterpiece, full of lush orchestrations, dope beats and excellent vocals. Days to Come gives you that late 90s trip-h...view item »

My Home, Sinking
King of Corns

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 4

The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 4) is another compilation record from two great electronic composers: Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 3

This is the third collection of tracks from Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook entitled, you guessed it, The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 3).

Available on double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl.&nbs...view item »

Circular Ruins
The Thorned Maze

Hazy electronics from Berlin resident Marijn Degenaar, operating under the rather Borgesian name Circular Ruins. The Thorned Maze builds elaborate and spacey synth structures that tend towards darkness, and then leaves the listener to wonder around within them, with captivating results....view item »

Roger Eno
This Floating World

Roger Eno is the ambient Eno who isn’t named ‘Brian’, if that helps, and this LP marks his first solo album since 2008’s ‘Flood’. This Floating World features Roger playing his piano, as you might expect -- he plays it a lot, and slowly, letting his strings reverb in the space around our ears, gently, harmonic...view item »

Atlantic Coral
Bubble

This is mysterious little 3" CD is comprised of a single 17-minute track of lovely swirling ambient synth tones from Atlantic Coral, with very occasional, very sparse bass. It's all very cosmic and blissful. It's making our Business Lady feel better about herself, maybe it'll do the same for yours?...view item »

Rudi Arapahoe
Double Bind

I’m not familiar with this Rudi Arapahoe feller but Phil assures me he’s very good and rarely puts anything out, so I’m intrigued. On this little CD here (part of Hibernate’s excellent 3” CD postcard series) he gets together with five friends, inclu...view item »

Leonardo Rosado
Studies On Solitude

These Twisted Treeline 3" CDrs are coming thick and fast, with this week's offering from Leonardo Rosado who also records as Subterminal. The title here probably gives the game away somewhat as to what the overall mood is here. Yeah, you guessed it's pret...view item »

Koda
Movements

Infraction have repressed a small amount of the Movements CD by Koda which was one of their earlier releases. It's not one I've heard until now so I thought I'd write a few words on it. From start to end this album is totally beautiful. If you're into ambience and drone music then this is heartily recommended. I'm not sure what the music has bee...view item »

Rare Form
Six Months in Hiding

Lush and slush, this evil record from some version of hell will swallow you up like an avalanche and I doubt very much you’ll live the tale. Packed with heaving slowburner chord changes, scattered feedback, tangled whispers, haughty synths and emo melodies, Rare Form are on a mission to overdrive themselves out of existence, creating one o...view item »

Fazerdaze
Morningside

Flying Nun are beloved by many for their central role in documenting New Zealand’s underground indie scene, but they haven’t rested on their laurels. Here they have brand new work from up-and-coming artist Fazerdaze, who has swiftly moved from bedroom production to the fully-fledged ecstatic indie pop we hear here. ...view item »

Simon Whetham
Is the Water Supposed to be This Blue?

Here’s a smashing little mini CD on the Rural Colours label by Simon Whetham. Usually Simon deals in field recordings and art installations but this release sees him creating a piece of music created with an old guitar he owned as a teenager. It’s a splendid sound he’s happened upon with the guitar almost chiming like a piano i...view item »

Ryonkt & Offthesky
Breathing

This is a lovely little package on Dronarivm, it's a collaboration between Ryo "Ryonkt" Nakata and Jason "Offthesky" Corder, the former of whom made a 45-minute guitar drone over which the latter poured rice and breathed and played some vibraphone, ultimately creating the piece which flows over the two 3" CDs right here. They come in a lovely fo...view item »

Colleen
Et les Boites a Musique

Cos I'm busy listening to the new COLLEEN (French for Colin) CD on Leaf rather Frenchily titled Colleen Et Les Boites A Musique. This album has been entirely built using music boxes. I actually really like music boxes a lot and was seriously considering collecting 'em a while back but decided not to bother cos it seemed too much ...view item »

Tim Hecker
Ravedeath 1972

There's certain music that I find near impossible to "review" at work - analysis & contemplation needs to be done in an environment where there are near to no distractions and somewhere where you can amp it up to your hearts content. Like what i'm doing now with Tim Hecker's new one, my enjoyment enhanced further avec cup o' tea in hand! I'v...view item »

Erland Cooper
Solan Goose

Who needs the acerbic wit of a Norman Records review when you can just image search a Scottish landscape and live in peace forever? I strongly advise you shut this off right now and Google “Orkney”, the archipelago off the edge of the Scottish coast, an idyllic coastal periphery that Erland Cooper calls home. He’s moved to the ...view item »

Grouper
Grid Of Points

Grouper -- or ‘Ghostly’ Liz Harris, as I sometimes call her (although this sentence is the first time I’ve done that, in writing anyway) -- is back with another exceedingly beautiful record. On Grid Of Points, Portland Liz follows up one of my favourite albums of 2014, ‘Ruins’; a record that was born of a d...view item »

Pun Collins
Lunar Influence

On his first release of what I imagine might be a plurative number in 2018, Pun Collins has created a dance record for unexpected spaces. Empty supermarkets after dark; VR headsets with nothing going on inside. With its hints of genre -- a distant bassline from disco, a vocal sample toiling away too long, or a stabbed chord bouncing off the wall...view item »

Prins Emanuel
Arbete / Fritid

Work and leisure; seldom shall the twain meet. It’s the great, arbitrary binary of modernity, as well as a core theme of this debut LP by Prins Emanuel of Sweden. His Royal Highness has quite the knack for funky, exotic house music, and a soft touch with his shuffling production. He’s fibbing about the ‘work&rs...view item »

Gaussian Curve
The Distance

Gaussian Curve’s second album, recorded in Amsterdam, finds the trio dealing with a whole new way of making music: this time, they have an eager audience waiting to hear what they’ve got. The Distance should do an excellent job satisfying old fans (and new), being a sweet and emotional set of rich widescreen...view item »

Tourist Kid
Crude Tracer

Aussie upstart Tourist Kid is here with his first release for Melody As Truth, a stuttering digital romp that takes in serene, glassy ambience, delicate piano and fetishistic instrumentation. It's a beautiful record; spacious, nuanced and heart-wrenching, complete with broken vocals and plaintive, delicate pulses. ...view item »

Peter Power & Friends
Awake Into Life

Not perma grinning 70s DJ Peter Powell but Peter Power who unlike Peter Powell is a cosmic voyager who has resided in Ireland Germany and now Brazil.

Devon Loch
Sleep Scale

Devon Loch was a horse which suffered an epic fail at the 1956 Grand National when it jumped over a fence that wasn’t there. This Devon Loch is a soundscapist working in the field of sleepy pulsating synth-scapes which initially recall the ‘70’s drifts of Tangerine Dream and ...view item »

Possibly a bit mantra ish if you're get your head in that frame of mind. It gets interesting...view item »

Pinkshinyultrablast
In The Hanging Gardens

Now that Pinkshinyultrablast have released a couple of albums it's time for them to do that thing every band does on their third album  - break out the synths.

Ian MacFarlane
Planetarium

Shhh... it's private press. Have some respect. This much unknown ambient synth record was made by Cybotron maverick Ian MacFarlane, whose music may once have been a little weird to most ears. An experimentalist with conspiracies and surrealisms in his head, he envisioned Pla...view item »

Express Rising
Fixed Rope II

Tim Hecker
Haunt Me, Haunt Me Do It Again

This guy's well good as I'm sure you well know. This was his debut album, released almost a decade ago, and in the time since its release the number of people trying to straddle the boundary between ambience and noise has grown to fairly insane levels. Nonetheless, even amidst the currently hyperoversaturated market, there's always time for Timm...view item »

Tim Hecker
Mirages

'Mirages' is one of ambient musician and noise thrill-seeker Tim Hecker's earliest works, originally released in 2004.

This rec...view item »

Jon Hopkins
Opalescent

House producer and Coldplay helper Jon Hopkins has done a lot since Opalescent, but his debut record now gets a reissue after fifteen years in the game.

Luke Howard
Open Heart Story

Corduroy
Return Of The Fabric Four

Acid Jazz heroes Corduroy are back with their first release in almost two decades, and it's a 12-track doozy.
