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, in this reissue by Them There Records.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex

This is the debut full-length album from Cigarettes After Sex, following up on a number of EPs. They’ve stepped things up for the occasion, with a sound more widescreen than ever before. The songs are romantic in subject matter and sonic construction: this could well be the soundtrack to your next heartache. CD and LP editions available on Partisan Records.

Jason Kolar
Modified PerspectiveS

Perhaps the perspectives in Jason Kolar’s Modified Perspectives are the underlying instruments (vibraphone, guitar, piano etc.) that are modified through the heavy use of deepwater reverb, ambient processing and synthesis? Or perhaps the modification is applied to your own everyday perspectives through listening to Modified Perspectives? Either way, this is a good record.

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 warmth with an inquisitive love for sound. On Biophon Recordings.

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.

Sold out - sorry!

Aukai
Aukai

German composer/producer Markus Sieber assumes the Aukai moniker for his debut LP after moving away from his recent career in acting. He manages to channel the drama of his last profession through cinematic, orchestrated acoustic ambiences evoking the feeling of travel and memories of time spent in natural surroundings, all of this subtly enhanced by electronics. Enticing!

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 ‘Girls On The TV’ and ‘Touchstone’ wouldn’t sound out of place on Italians Do It Better.

My Home, Sinking
King of Corns

This white vinyl release of Enrico Coniglio's, aka My Home, Sinking, 'King of Corns' is as special as the music itself, a bucolic, meditative rumination on melancholia, assembled from the building blocks of gentle folk guitar, lilting harmonica and illuminating, dramatic vocals. Sometimes sweet, sometimes frenzied, this is a gorgeous album.

offthesky & Pleq
A Thousand Fields

A collaborative effort between US based offthesky a.k.a. Jason Corder and Polish resident Pleq a.k.a. Bartosz Dziadosz this is an album of experimental ambience. Utilising abstract treatments of minimalism, field recordings and playing with delicate use of single piano strings, harp, echo and more this is a album of both space and depth. 'A Thousand Fields' is the first time these artists have worked together on an album. This is available as a 2xLP set, cut at 45 rpm on 180gram vinyl with a tip-on style heavy gatefold sleeve and OBI strip featuring artwork from Pyhai. The first 300 copies will include a bonus 7" entitled "Still Your Bones" (INFX 062 S) with 2 exclusive tracks. There are only 500 copies pressed in total - so be quick.  

Rare Form
Six Months in Hiding

This lavish release from Californian duo Rare Form features seven lengthy pieces that draw from drone, post-rock, noise music and witchy ambience. The alternation between wall-of-sound screeching and amber-suspended synths is particularly striking on twenty-minute centrepiece ‘The Road To Awe’. Both of the vinyl are different colours, and the drop also includes a lyric sheet, additional artwork and liner notes.

Devon Loch
Sleep Scale

Minimalistic organs and piano mixed in acoustic collages. Slightly dissonant and distractedly meandering. Sleep Scale is hypnotizing, somnambulant almost. The debut by Devon Loch, joined here by Ela Orleans and Best Available Technology, sounds like the demented memoirs of pure energy. And I mean that in a good way.

Night Foundation
Memory Bells

Deep after-hours ambience from Night Foundation, released underneath the guise of a monochrome piece of sleeve-art so grainy we might have dreamed it. Memory Bells contains three lengthy pieces, using synth hardware, tape loops, and even some trumpet if you listen carefully. 12” on Lobster Theremin.

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. It was released to Just Label who largely dealt in beautified ambient music, and Hopkins sentimental sound was well suited to their whims -- that said, his music introduced different extremities, with his thunderous rhythmic ideas coupled with a more pastoral sound.

Hellvete

Luke Howard
Open Heart Story

Here is Australian Music Prize nominated composer and pianist Luke Howard with the reflective Open Heart Story - a contemporary classical record that concerns itself with the ageing process and childhood memories. Titles like ‘In Metaphor, Solace’, ‘Elysian Fields’ and ‘I Still Dream About You, Sometimes But Not Always’ suggest a work which wears its open heart on its sleeve. 

Rafael Toral
Wave Field

Rafael Toral’s classic ambient record Wave Field gets a reissue courtesy of Drag City. Originally released in 1995 via a bunch of labels (Jim O’Rourke’s dexter’s cigar handled it in the U.S.), Wave Field must have been a breath of fresh air when compared to all the six-string angst around at the time. These lovely, serene guitar-scapes are reminiscent of Fripp, Eno and Cage.

Rafael Toral
Sound Mind Sound Body

Early work from Portuguese sound-worker Rafael Toral. Sound Mind Sound Body is composed almost entirely out of guitar sounds, though the processes Toral has used in the devising and processing of the work have smoothed out the instrument almost completely, into a rich, ever-stretching plane of ambient drone. This is a reissue of the 1999 edition of this album.

Good Weather For An Airstrike
Little Steps

Good Weather For An Airstrike. Good name for a band? That’s the real question. Little Steps is the Winchester group’s ninth album since the band formed in 2009. The group was made to make relaxing music to alleviate group member Tom Honey’s tinnitus. It certainly is blissful ambience and enough to put me into a peaceful, happy slumber.

Dustin Wong + Takako Minekawa + Good Willsmith
Exit Future Heart

I for one am extremely excited about this. Dustin Wong is the guitar knotter and looper known, in addition to his past service in noise rock band Ponytail, for making majestic records out of simple, riffed ideas. The ecstasy of his music will here be paired with noise pranksters Good Willsmith, who made an incredible, euphorically harsh record for Umor in Things Our Bodies Used to Have, along with the Casio tones of Takako Minekawa. An instant purchase for all the leftfields amongst you.

Exquisite Russian Brides
Overflow Variations

Here’s that good stuff for you, fresh and direct from Copenhagen (no, not Russia). Exquisite Russian Brides is Marc Kellaway (also of Boy On Boy and Distortion Girls), utilising his collection of old synths, drum machines and tapes in order to create great grey slabs of atmosphere. Plenty of dubby delay and hissing grain envelopes the beat pieces and the ambient sections in considerable measure. Overflow Variations is a double LP on The Cat Box Corp.

Malena Zavala
Aliso

Slow, warm and bittersweet dream pop ditties are the stuff of Argentina-born, Britain-raised Malena Zavala’s debut album, and she writes, performs and produces them very well. There’s a very gentle mix of roots rock, Latin and singer-songwriter styles at work here, rendered in fuzzy, lo-fi production

Celer
I Love You So Much I Can't Even Title This

Celer created I Love You So Much I Can’t Even Title This in 2008, using both analogue (tape) and digital (laptop) processing to utterly transform original sounds and samples of Samuel Barber’s compositions alike. Distant-sounding ambience with a weighty emotional heft to it: delicate and huge at the same time. Double LP on Infraction.

Fabio Orsi | Alessandra Guttagliere
Giardino Forico n° 1 - Napoli

Extremely enticing visual and sound art project from Italian electroacoustician Fabio Orsi and Italian photographer and poet Alessandra Guttagliere. Giardino Forico no 1 - Napoli would appear to be an attempt to represent a place (the city of Naples) through a layered blend of field recordings and sound, and fifty-six pages worth of photographs and words. Available in both single and double CD editions from 13 / silentes.

Steve Roach
Dreamtime Return

Steve Roach’s 1988 ethno-ambient release Dreamtime Return hits the thirty-year mark and gets the anniversary remaster treatment. Combining appropriated references to Aboriginal Australian folklore and spirituality with his own creativity with electronic instruments, the album is a canonical masterpiece of New Age cheese.

Luton
Black Box Animals

Lost Tribe Sound had better not rename themselves William Ryan Fritch Records after all - things are getting diverse again. Here Italian duo Luton slip out a little 200-copy run of their brooding new album Black Box Animals. It combines various orchestral arrangements with electric guitar, piano, electronics and other stuff. The effect is a moody series of fragmented classical and ambient phrases in a slow dance.

A Winter Light
A Winter Light

For his solo exhibition of the same name in a Sligo gallery, Mark Garry invited some chums to write and record music on location, in direct response to the pieces on display. These include Karl Burke, Nina Hynes and Claudia Schwab as well as actor Cillian Murphy and his brother Paidrig Murphy. Sax, strings, guitar, piano and percussion are what accompany the various singers in what is really quite a sweet collection of quiet alt-folk songs.

Dorias Baracca
Dorias Baracca

Tragically, Dorias Baracca’s promising career was cut short in 2011 when singer and songwriter Buster Svendsen passed away. The day of his death also happened to be the same day that their self-titled debut LP was completed. As such, the fact that Dorias Baracca has seen light of day at all is a triumph. The seven tracks within showcase a band with a far better grasp on what makes for good shoegaze revivalism than many of their peers. My Bloody Valentine and Ride spring to mind.

Still Circles
27:36

This is a very pretty debut LP from Bradford duo Still Circles. It’s a record of well-groomed, emotive electronic pop songs of the Cocteau Twins school. Natalie Kolowiecki’s breathy croon recalls Polica’s Channy Leaneagh, and along with Jack Donnison she’s constructed seven ethereal instrumentals to back up the vocals. Think Forest Swords, but nicer and with singing.

Shorelights
Ancient Lights

Rod Modell AKA Deepchord (see also  Echospace, Waveform Transmissions, Transformations) has hooked up with the two blokes from Detroit’s nospectacle, Chris McNamara and Walter Wasacz to become Shorelights to make some ambient techno. Amber Lights is a passionate exploration of space, body and mind. Limited edition double 12” on Subwax bcn.

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
IBM 1401, A User's Manual

The late Johann Johannsson did a great many great things over the course of his career. Among them was this album, one of the most emotionally intense records with one of the most emotionally detached titles. IBM 1401, A User’s Manual pays tribute to the composer’s father using recordings of the titular computer and some seriously luscious and emotive string arrangements. A modern classic.

Ocean Floor
The World of Rain

Aonghus Reidy AKA Ocean Floor returns after the sublime 4 Shadows record for Aphelion Edition with a much longer single piece, spread over 2 sides of 180gm vinyl. Named The World of Rain, Reidy conjures a similar sound as on his previous effort, utilising analogue synth to create a bubbling, liquid piece full of languorous melancholy. Side 1 is more brooding, playing with a long, slow sliding melody, with a hint of brooding menace teasing in and out of malice and melancholy, which eventually builds to a satisfying yet fatalistic crescendo. This long first side may take more than a few listens to appreciate its subtle beauty. Ponderous and infinitely sombre, Side 2 instantly hits you out the gate with its funereal underwater piano and organ sound, fading out. All in all, a record that deserves repeated, thoughtful listening. Available from Erstwhile Books & Music, Limited to 250 copies on 180gm black Vinyl and download code.

Lines

Very intellectual drone from Distant Animals. Daniel Alexander Hignell is an artist, musician, and more. Lines is inspired by such greats of minimalism as La Monte Young and Morton Feldman. Most intriguingly, this comes with 4 postcards showing "land-art interventions" made during the creation of the album. Love a bit of interdisciplinary art me.
