Matthias Puech
Alpestres

Matthias Puech is a builder of modular synths, and also a user of those synths, in this case creating an abstract electronic soundscape that also evokes in some way an Alpine hike. Alpestres actually has a lot of sonic focus and narrative drive for a modular synth record, with evocative titles in various European languages to help the listener off on their sonic trip up the mountain.

Oliver Kearns
Amelioration

Pianist and field recordist Oliver Kearns has spun together a number of different threads to form the 67 minute Amelioration. An album that completely washes over you, before slowly revealing it's depth and variety. The space within its ambience is made real by free jazz inspired drumming. On Aphelion Editions.

Ian William Craig
Thresholder

Ian William Craig is always very welcome round these parts, and Thresholder, the man’s first album in eighteen months, demonstrates why. Those tape machines of his are put to work in the construction of an eleven-track, forty-minute sound environment. Deep and gorgeous smeared ambience, on FatCat sub-label 130701.

Bipolar Explorer
Sometimes In Dreams

Bipolar Explorer is the cheerily-named project of NYC dynamic duo Summer Serafin and Michael Serafin-Wells. As ever on Slugg Records, Sometimes in Dreams is their seventh album - and they made this one a double. The pair specialise in shoegazy dream-rock, blending sung lyrics with poetry and spoken word to convey tender affection, warmth and also great tragedy and sadness.

Northerner
End Of The Holiday

Those who have missed the evocative guitar playing of Vini Reilly over the last few years, should maybe check out Northerner (AKA Martin Cummings) to get their fix. This, his third full length album on Home Assembly, is full of perfect evocative soundscapes with a dusky balearic feel and laden with those gorgeous plangent guitar stylings over gently rolling electronica.  *UK EXCLUSIVE ON SILVER VINYL* (whilst stocks last).

Same Waves
Algorithm of Desire

‘Algorithm of Desire’ by Same Waves is an exercise in oddball electronic pop, both restrained and open-ended. Same Waves are a collaboration between Lindsay Anderson (L’ALTRA) and John Hughes, together making a sound of hushed eccentricity, welcome to scrapes of violin, plonking synths, and at times almost whispered vocals. The LP - which features contributions from the likes of Bill MacKay and Macie Stewart - is released by the Flau label.

Richard Neale
Growth + Decay

Bespectacled producer Richard “Hexagonal Packaging” Neale follows last year’s Eves with new EP Growth + Decay. Though it retains its folky tinges, the spontaneous live instrumentation of Eves largely gives way to digital loops of short phrases, layered and built up into something quite dramatic. As before, mastered by James Plotkin.

Irmin Schmidt
5 Klavierstücke

An album of solo piano pieces from Can keyboardist Irmin Schmidt here. The five tracks of 5 Klavierstücke are one-take improvisations which were recorded on two grand pianos - one prepared, one unprepared - and augmented with ambient noise from around the studio in the south of France. The prepared instrument forms the core of the record, and in doing so it gives the LP a strong whiff of Schmidt's one-time tutor John Cage.

PLYXY
Gloryland

After being issued as a small cassette run by Ascetic House in early 2018 PLYXY’s Gloryland now gets a re-release via Hallow Ground. As is the want of the Swiss label, this record is a pretty frosty and demanding listen. The gnarled, weary synthscapes here recall Forest Swords and fellow HG act Dedekind Cut. Closer ‘March Of Youth’ breaks out into full-on noise.

K. Leimer

Colorlist
Full Circle

Colorlist: Charles Rumback, Charles Gorzcynski, and John Hughes (of Hibernis). Four veterans of Chicago’s transgressive underground jazz scene. Here’s their fourth album, courtesy of dependably tasteful Welsh label Serein. The quartet’s interactions of woodwinds, drums and various electronics are graceful and atmospheric.

James Murray
Landscapes of Lovers

Sold out - sorry!

Celer
Memory Repetitions

Coming to a letterbox or collection depot near you: it’s Celer, the reliably ambient and ambiently reliable work of Tokyo resident Will Long - someone whose surname accurately describes his discography. This is a muscular five-parter - one lengthy part per disc - aimed to reflect back on the Celer story so far. Highly recommended to fans of Celer.

Colin Potter
Rank Sonata

Colin Potter has been orbiting the centre of the UK underground music scene(s) for his whole career, as a member of Nurse With Wound and Current 93 and through a stack of other collaborations. Rank Sonata is a fully solo work however, and finds Potter wandering his electronics down dreamy ambient pathways. On Hallow Ground.

Midday Moon, Ambient and Experimental Recordings from Australia & New Zealand 1980 - 1995

Aussie label Bedroom Suck brings us Midday Moon, an excellent new double-LP comp of ambient and experimental musics out of Australia and New Zealand taken from the period of 1980 to 1995. The recordings have origins on various micro-labels, private pressings and the artists' own personal archives. Melbourne DJ / archivist Rowan 'Sanpo Disco' Mason has delved deep into a largely uncelebrated world of latter twentieth-century Aussie New Age and beyond. And we're glad he did. 

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 this should be a nice small album of  bossa-nova, pop, and psychedelia for summer.

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need us 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 great though, whether for solo listening late at night or for esoteric dancefloors. An absolute classic.

Ensemble 0
Ensemble 0 Plays Eight Compositions and It Lasts 38:36

Can’t fault them for clarity and accuracy. Ensemble 0 Plays Eight Compositions and It Lasts 38:36 delivers on each of the promises of its title, and the individual tracks follow the same format. This contemporary group devised their own pieces for (mostly) acoustic instrumentation, and the results are tenderly-textured and delicately explorative. LP release on the Flau label.

Saloli
The Deep End

The Year Zero for Mary Sutton’s debut LP as Saloli was a performance at a clothing-optional soaking-pool sauna. In attempting to make music for people relaxing in hot bubbly water, Sutton came up with these sounds of warm, tranquil beauty. The generative point of The Deep End encourages comparisons with Yamaneko’s Spa Commissions, but the sounds here lean more towards the New Age reissues of Seance Centre. Out via Kranky (Tim Hecker, Dedekind Cut).

Jon Porras
Voices Of The Air

Sold out - sorry!

Hibernis
Middle Of The Meds

Hibernis drop an LP via Serein (Hauschka, Herzog). Middle Of The Meds is a record of ambient electronica that carries itself with a quiet intensity. John Hughes (son of John Hughes, director of Ferris Bueller's Day Off etc.) creates brooding instrumentals reminiscent of Susanna And The Magical Orchestra and the obfuscating synthscapes that characterise Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ work for screen. The way Lindsay Anderson then embeds her vocals in the mix is reminiscent of Grouper.

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 beautiful atmospheres. Vinyl release on the splendidly named Infinite Fog label.

MKWAJU ensemble
KI-Motion

An unknown classic, KI-Motion is some of the finest percussion work you'll likely hear. Rhythms made meditative and minimalist, the MKWAJU Ensembl explored fertile ground in the world of ambience, influenced by the membership of legendary percussionist Midori Takada. A resonant masterstroke.

Dakota Suite & Dag Rosenqvist
What Matters Most

A slow, haunting new LP from Dakota Suite here. What Matters Most sees DS auteur Chris Hooson join forces with Dag Rosenqvist (Jasper TX) and former collaborator Emanuele Errante (Elem). With Hooson taking up the singer-songwriter's archetypal companions of guitar and piano, the other two augment his snow-slow songs with all manner of instruments and effects. They flush tracks like ‘Now That You Know’ with a mournful, glacial beauty that brings to mind a digital Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

A Quiet Divide

Rhian Sheehan is one of those ‘contemporary classical’ composers, which is a fancy way of saying you make music to be used in adverts for banks. Though we’ve never heard of him before it seems to be that he’s extremely popular in his native New Zealand. A Quiet Divide is an LP of thirteen tracks and that’s all we have to say on the matter.

Caught In The Wake Forever & glacis
Version & Delineation

Sowerby Bridge’s finest label, Crow Versus Crow, presents a tape of lovely, delicate music and sound. Version & Delineation combines the delicate, melodic, phone-recorded piano improvisations of glacis with fizzy electronic textures from Caught In The Wake Forever, resulting in some really nice, simple-but-deep pieces. Pro-duped cassettes.

David Sylvian & Holger Czukay
Plight & Premonition Flux & Mutability

The man once dubbed the Most Beautiful Man In The World...and ...er.. David Sylvian collaborated way back in the mid '80s on these two LPs in Can's home place of Koln in bleak midwinter. At the time record companies weren't bothered about such esoteric collaborations so now is a good time to revisit what the pair were up to. These beatless almost airless ambient albums  have now been collected together on a much needed re-issue and remastered for hopefully a more welcoming world.

Ben Chatwin
Drone Signals

Former Talvihorros chap Ben Chatwin has not been content with releasing one album this year. Instead he has gone back to his sound sources for 'Staccato Signals' and created an entirely new work. 'Drone Signals' as you might guess by the title is a more ambient stretched out work that will appeal to all your drone and neo classical greats like Ben Frost and Max Richter.

Penelope Trappes
Carry Me

Run the Trappes! The Penelope Trappes, to be precise. Having released her acclaimed debut LP Penelope One on Optimo last year, Trappes is now hot-footing it over to Houndstooth for the follow-up. To tide people over before Penelope Two (seems she’s got a thing going there) Trappes is releasing this 7”. It contains album track ‘Carry Me’ and exclusive tune ‘I Can Hear You…’. The former is a mournful, syrup-slow ballad in the Grouper vein; the latter a Gothic Colin Newman tribute. Carry Me also comes with a CD on which Abul Mogard turns the title track into a reverberant drone.

Less Bells
Solifuge

The location of Joshua Tree, California is important to Solifuge, the full-length debut by Less Bells. The dichotomy of summer monsoons and starry nights that the desert landscape bring inform the dramatic and desolate qualities of the music. The woman behind the project, Julia Carpenter, made the music by reshaping a classical string piece through a process of cut-ups before transposing the passages for the synthesizer. LP and CD on Kranky.

Volcov
From The Archive Vol. 2

Volcov’s first …From The Archive compilation was a tasteful collection of jazz-adjacent rarities that dated from as far back as the 1970’s. Two years on and the market for golden age soul-jazz/disco/funk reissues has become crowded, so Volcov has selected ten twenty-first century nuggets for the second installment of the series. The set, which includes tunes by Ron Trent and the Roy Ayers-affiliated Harry Whitaker, flows nicely between nu-jazz, neo-soul and hip-hop. All in all From The Archive Volume 2 is a fine bit of curation.
