Washed Out
Paracosm

Washed Out burst onto the scene with the excellent debut Life of Leisure which became something of a chillwave (remember that?) classic. Debut Within or Without was a limp disappointment but things improved a bit with Paracosm. Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr (for it is he) used 50 different instruments on this. Not that you could always tell but it expanded his palette somewhat. However there's a twist. Following the album he moved to Stones Throw and created the great Mister Yellow. Buy that first perhaps but this is no slouch.

Mandible Chatter
Grace

Experimental weirdness from Mandible Chatter on this reissue of their 1993 album Grace. A mishmash of all sorts, from shrieking to out of tune fairground ride music, always looking to unnerve or make us misstep. Drone and abstract composition using acoustic guitars as well as a medley of assorted sounds. On Magnanimous on CD.

Willits + Sakamoto
Ancient Future

Like fish and chips, cheese and tomato, sausages and mash, pianist Christopher Willits and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto seem born to go together. Ancient Future was their second collaboration and is a six track song cycle made up of tracks Sakamoto sent to Willits as embryonic piano sketches. The theme is the acceptance of one's fate and the lessons we can learn from life. Big questions but soundtracked exquisitely by these masters of their genres.

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
Stare

Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm. Makes sense huh. The pair's first collaborative record Stare was released as a limited-edish 10” back on Record Store Day 2012. It contains all the stuff you’d expect it to contain - dinky lil electronics, some grandiose drones, fluffy ambiences, a general air of contemporary classical niceness. This new Erased Tapes pressing of Stare adds two extra inches on to Stare’s original vinyl size.

Death And Vanilla
Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing enormo-dromes have kindly re-issued their earlier hard-to-find work including this album that according to his review seemed to cause Phil immense personal hygiene problems on first listening.

Tim Hecker
Harmony In Ultraviolet

Harmony In Ultraviolet still sounds out as one of Tim Hecker’s finest achievements: a particularly grand and coherent suite that shifts seamlessly between sparse drone and shuddering noise. One of the immersive greats of the 2010’s, this is an album you can really allow to carry you off. Available from Kranky.

Deathprod
Treetop Drive

The early works of Norwegian experimentalist Deathprod (aka Supersilent member Helge Sten) here receive some attention from Smalltown Supersound’s reissues division. Treetop Drive is an early 90’s work composed using Sten’s ‘Audio Virus’ array, spinning twisted samples and unruly electronics into a satisfyingly fried-sounding whole. LP reissue with remastered audio.

July Skies
The Weather Clock

July Skies probably define the term 'wistful'. Antony Harding's project come out of the same West Midlands-based stable of artists as the likes of Epic45 nd make a gorgeously dreamy kind of music that recalls the Durutti Column and Felt. The Weather Clock was initially released in 2008 on Make Mine Music but has been given a deserved vinyl re-press courtesy of Rivertones.

Tim Hecker
An Imaginary Country

A 2009 example of the very fine work of Tim Hecker. An Imaginary Country is the album wherein Tim explicitly set out to conjure up the impression of a whole landscape using his washes of sound, and he pretty much nails it: this country is definitely one I’d like to visit. Colourful and bright and lush abstract electronic music, on Kranky.

Biosphere
Shenzhou

Shenzou is Biosphere’s 2002 record, upon which most of the tracks were built out of scratchy old vinyl samples of Debussy recordings, which lends the album a Gas-like classical flavour beneath all that nice shimmering looping ambience. This reissue of Shenzou also contains the album The Samphire Tower in full, as a bonus! Double CD and triple LP editions.

Jessica Bailiff
Jessica Bailiff

The underrated Jessica Bailiff dropped her eponymous third LP through Kranky back in 2002. Across the album Bailiff comes through with the sort of cosmic ambient folk/rock style that other artists have got way more credit for than she has. For instance - the collaborative Animal Collective/Vashti Bunyan EP Prospect Hummer came out three years after Jessica Bailiff, yet people only seem to remember the latter nowadays. Strange. Either way, this is a great record that deserves a second chance.

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

Brian Eno’s specifically-titled Ambient series of albums culminated in Ambient 4: On Land, a particularly dense and somewhat dark listen, miles away from the bright emptiness of Ambient 1. Jon Hassell, Daniel Lanois and Bill Laswell were involved in helping Eno achieve this (still) strange and evocative expanse. Virgin reissue.
  • Genre(s):
  • Ambient / Downtempo / Dreampop

Brian Eno
Discreet Music

Early solo Brian Eno material from 1975, originally issued through Eno’s legendary Obscure Records. Side A is the real Discreet Music, one of his very first self-defined ‘ambient’ works, recorded with an EMS Synthi AKS and tape loops (mmmm, yum). Side B involves messing around with Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major, with pleasing results. Virgin reissue.

Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Groundbreaking stuff here from Brian Eno. Ambient 1: Music For Airports was released in 1978 and marks the first time when the word ‘ambient’ was used in connection with this kind of music. Eno made the album by layering tape loops. His intention was to make a soundscape that would cut through anxieties and tension in an airport. Half-speed master. Cut at 45 rpm on heavyweight vinyl.
  • Genre(s):

The Avalanches
Since I Left You

A masterpiece of sampling, Since I Left You challenged norms of authorship and genre in its determination to appreciate the creative potential of appropriation art. The Avalanches showed about as well as can be that a sample cut away from its origin can be made to do wonderful things in a new context. In other words: this is a charming, humorous and exquisitely-curated and composed piece of work.

Air
Moon Safari

Remastered version 12” vinyl on Rhino. Moon Safari was the album that rocketed Air into, well, space. Couldn’t go to any record shop, or turn on any TV channel without hearing Sey Boy or Kelly Watch the Stars. Now it’s had the full treatment and back on vinyl. Comes with download code for digital versions.

Portishead
Portishead

Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures. It's an intimate and occasionally frightening listen full of regret and pathos between the grooves.

Massive Attack
Heligoland

This was the fifth album from the masters of trip hop and as usual contains an array of guests including Horace Andy (natch), Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval and..well...  Guy Garvey. You can't get all your decisions correct I suppose but this is an overlooked album by these experts of dark beats and now has been re-issued on double LP.

Air
Talkie Walkie

Rhino Records are in the midst of a campaign of reissuing the discography of Air, the smooth, loungey French synth-charmers. Talkie Walkie first came out in 2004, and is suitably Airy - and I don’t just say that because of the pun, this album feels like an early summer evening in the park with a light breeze. Pressed to proper 180g vinyl and freshly remastered.

10,000 Hz Legend

Includes the robot-voice single ‘How Does It Make You Feel’. Pressed to proper 180g vinyl and freshly remastered.
