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 »

Cosmic Ground
Legacy / The Plague

Deep Distance wanted to release Cosmic Ground's self titled debut in it's entirety but track lengths proved impossible to squash onto vinyl so instead we get two of the best cuts from the disc spread out nicely onto wax. This is excellent long form, sequencer-heavy electronic psych. Turn on, switch off, lie down.    &n...view item »

Charles Ditto
Basso Continuo: Cyberdelic Ambient and Nootropic Soundscapes (1987-1994)

For fans of abstract ambient early adopter Charles Ditto, here’s a bunch of secrets well-kept. With a name like Basso Continuo: Cyberdelic Ambient and Nootropic Soundscapes, and an album-cover like that, what else is there to say? Expect compositions drawing on long, low drones as well as jumbling e...view item »

Pausal
Volume Flow

Music to imagine vistas, valleys, forests and glaciers to by airy UK duo Pausal, known individually as Alex “Olan Mill” Smalley and Simon Bainton. With a cover painting by Susanne Seinmann, the album comprises extended improvisations edited down into manageable pieces. Beard and morning coffee option...view item »

Pep Llopis
Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes

Pep Llopis tunes into the rich lineage of legendary Mediterranean sea stories with Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes, a suite of arty ambience rich with elements of minimalism and driven by Llopis’s prog-informed synthesizer. Recorded and released in 1987, Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes ...view item »

The Green Kingdom
Seen And Unseen

Yes! Michael Cottone is back as The Green Kingdom with his new album Seen And Unseen, this time on the Sound In Silence label. This Michigan sound artist and graphic designer is ever using composition to soundtrack landscapes with keen melodies and often labyrinthine structure. Cottone's skills as a son...view item »

Parekh & Singh
Science City

Parekh & Singh present their second LP, and boy is it lush. Science City perhaps lands somewhere between the gorgeous dream-pop of Beach House and the textured arrangements of Grizzly Bear: in any case, its eleven tracks make up a beautiful and rich listen. Science City &nb...view item »

Annelies Monsere
Happiness Is Within Sight

Gent, Belgium-based Annelies Monseré (Luster, Zent One) hops over to STROOM〰 for new album Happiness is Within Sight. Drifting over an implied theme of great loss, Monseré utilises various instruments, electronics and her own voice to create a kind of wilting, modern amb...view item »

Blue Chemise
Daughters Of Time

Students Of Decay (Alex Cobb, Caroline No) release a collection of evocative ambiences from Aussie artist Blue Chemise. Daughters Of Time is a delicate album. Many of the tracks here are contemplative, lackadaisical things that come fogged with reverb and tape grain. Th...view item »

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 instru...view item »

Max Ananyev
Water Atlas

Russian ambient instrumentalist Max Ananyev might just be one of those guys who will cite obscure philosophers at your dinner party. Luckily his music has the same qualities of endlessness, carried by meandering pianos and expansive soundscapes, without the dreariness. On 2018’s Water Atlas, you'll find nothing bu...view item »

Massive Attack
Blue Lines

Ah 'Blue Lines'. That time hip-hop, reggae, R&B, and soul all together under the mysterious cinematic umbrella of Massive Attack. The first time their special blend of breakbeats, sampling and rapping was heard and it's presence is still being felt 25+ years on. The usual guests are in place, Horace Andy, Tricky...view item »

Various
THESIS COLLECTED 01

Gregory Euclide’s and Gabor Kerekes’ ostentatious glambient label Thesis now gives folk with tighter budgets the chance to purchase a selection from the catalogue so far on CD and digital formats.

Monoganon
VISITATIONS 0101

Lost Map (Lazy Day, Alabaster DePlume) kick off their new VISITATIONS series with an EP from old favourite Monoganon. The Scotland-born, Sweden-based artist John B. McKenna has turned in a record of delightfully unusual electronica here. Opener ‘V...view item »

GAS
Rausch

You wait years for a new GAS album and two come along (almost) at once. Hot on the heels of last year's 'Narkopop' this is a different kettle of fish altogether, consisting of one long track which you are meant to listen to in one sitting. Wolfgang Voigt's work is ideal for this long form presentation. He's possibly less good at...view item »

Julee Cruise
The Voice of Love

This was the second Julee Cruise album following on from the hugely successful 'Floating Into the night' (which featured the classic Twin Peaks theme 'Falling'). This album contained further collaborations with David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti and translated some of their score-based mate...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 »

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 »

Grandbrothers
Dilation

Minimalist, techno composers Grandbrothers present their debut album ‘Dilation’. Following their instant classic EP ‘Ezra Was Right’, Grandbrothers have taken their exploration into minimalist ambiance to pioneering new territory with techno structures and rhythmic dancefloor characteristics....view item »

Michiru Aoyama
Brilliant Days

Brilliant Days is the second release on vinyl from Japanese producer Michiru Aoyama. He lives by the sea in Kamakura, Japan, and this location informs his ambient music. Brilliant Days consists of two pieces of music made from electric guitar lines treated with electronics to create a serene soundscape. His work has been much pr...view item »

Aaron Martin
Touch Dissolves

Influence is usually a one way straight. A musician is inspired by something, that something is left in the lurch. On Touch Dissolves, Aaron Martin upsets the norm and finds himself in dialogue with photographer Yusuf Sevinçli. The result is a series of dynamic drones,...view item »

Helen
The Original Faces

Check this one out Grouper fans! Liz Harris has formed a band, as in ‘an actual band’ band. Harris’ unmistakeable vocals can thus be heard over a sort of shoegaze/indie-pop backing. Helen still maintains an essentially mystic nature, but it is very welcome to h...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 »

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). This one also brings about the composers differing electronic sounds and throws them together to create electronic master pieces. Available on double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl.&nbs...view item »

Carl Weingarten
Living In The Distant Present

Carl Weingarten is a long underrated ambient slide guitarist. Hopefully, this reissue of his 1985 album, Living in The Distant Present, can change that. His music is deeply meditative, and will be comfortingly familiar to fans of new age music. Most impressively, Weingarten manages to find the ambient ...view item »

A Lily
Id-Dar Tal-Missier

A Lily, aka James Vella, follows up last year’s interesting Ten Drones On Cassette release with Id-Dar Tal-Missier, a fully-fledged album which pulls that ambient drone mastery into contact with actual song forms. Xylophone, guzheng and organ all make appearances on the record, as so gues...view item »

Roberto Musci
Tower of Silence

Roberto Musci collected the source field recordings for the music presented here on a wide array of international travels many decade ago. When he got home, he built on those sounds with synthesisers to make curious new hybrid musics. Very exploratory. Tower Of Silence is a double LP on Music From Memory....view item »

Leifur James
A Louder Silence

Late Night Tales offshoot imprint Night Time Stories issue the debut LP from Leifur James. Gilles Peterson is a fan of the young Londoner’s music, which is no surprise given that the kind of jazzy electronica that makes up A Louder Silence is catnip for the ...view item »

Negro

Valencia’s Fernando Junquera, performing as Negro, is a solo guitarist whose mastery of his instrument allows his music to smoothly encompass a world of sounds, from American primitive to ...view item »

Tim Hecker
Konoyo

Master sonic architect Tim Hecker returns to Kranky with an album which takes inspiration from conversations with a recently departed buddy. 'Konoyo' was mostly recorded in a Japanese temple just outside Tokyo in collaboration with gagaku ensemble Tokyo Gakuso. Hecker manipulates their source sounds (strings, woodwinds, percussion) and re-s...view item »

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.  ...view item »

Massive Attack
Mezzanine

Mezzanine is a dark masterpiece, as black, as glossy and as intimidating as the beetle creature on its cover. Angel and Teardrop turn up on TV often enough (and rightly so), but the whole album is worth digging into for its uneasy moods. This hasn’t been available on record for a while, so...view item »

Gunther Beckers
Walkman

Trading for major money on Discogs (for original copies) and much less money on Normanogs (for the Music From Memory reissue), this 1982 LP from G. B. Beckers is a strange collection of art rock. The gen...view item »

Julien Boulier
A Film Not Yet Made

Julien Boulier’s new album is a fittingly-titled piece of highly-cinematic romantic grandiose miniatures: captivating stuff. A Film Not Yet Made is available in regular CD and LP editions, as well as a box...view item »

Kira Kira
Alchemy & Friends

Icelandic ‘audio/visual prankster’ Kira Kira presents a lavish release on Time Released Sound (Porya Hatami, Ghostwriter). It’s the usual Reykjavik sort of thing from Kira Kira here, though Alchemy & Friends does stand out from the Ola...view item »

Mathilde Bataillé
Le Soleil Dans L’oeil

On La Soleil Dans L’oeil, Mathilde Bataillé takes her inspiration from Elliott Smith, Grouper and Sandy (Alex G). She creates her songs through misty guitar lines interspersed with tape loops and dazed field recordings. The recordings also have a certain je ne sais ...view item »

Massive Attack

Cocteau Twins
Tiny Dynamine / Echoes In A Shallow Bay

A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes. This release combines two EPs, Tiny Dynamine and Echoes In A Shallow Bay. Originally released within two weeks of each other in 1985, it makes a lot of sense to see them presented together here on one p...view item »

Orquesta De Las Nubes
The Order Of Change

The Music From Memory label continue their unearthing of spanish musician Suso Saiz, after releasing Rainworks in 2017, they look into one of his groups, Orquesta de las Nubes.

Huerco S.
For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have)

Soft and soothing underwater ambient techno from one of the masters of the genre.  Huerco S. drops what could be a landmark missive that is sure to appeal to fans of Deepchord, Gas and Basic Channel. Delicious and serene sounds for your laid back summer listening.  Dou...view item »

Masayoshi Fujita
Book of Life

Masayoshi Fujita - an artist you may know better from his Jan Jelinek collaborations under the guise of El Fog - completes the trio of vibraphone LPs begun with 2013’s Stories. Book Of Life keeps the focus on the big metal xylophone while also incorporating a wider range ...view item »

The Sly and Unseen
All Similarities and Technical Difficulties End Here

A wonderfully evocative album from Pennine duo Katie English and Jonathan Lees. You'll perhaps know Katie from Isnaj Dui and you'll know Jonathan if you've bought records on the Hibernate label which he has run for many years. The album is based around meditative drones using harmonium and squeeze boxes topped off with a myriad of twinkles and p...view item »

Cranes
Forever

The 1993 album by British shoegazers Cranes is now being made available again on vinyl! Forever is perhaps the best-loved of the band’s albums, with an all-round gorgeous sheen cast over the songs, some of which overwhelm with full-band power, and others of which peel things back to just piano and voice. Limited e...view item »

Kruder & Dorfmeister
The K&D Sessions

On its first release in the late 90s, this epic downbeat journey was ranked alongside Carboot Soul and Entroducing as an eternal late night classic. Now almost twenty years later its legend lives on. The numerous collaborations and session tracks still sound deep and wonderful, and are come on a vast and satisfying five LPs. Dig in....view item »

Kano
Runes

The first thing to say about this is that it’s not by the grime legend Kano. In fact, Runes is about as far away from ‘P’s And Q’s’ as it’s possible to get. Originally released in 1986 under the names of both Kano and Don Campbell - again, nothing to do with the Lover...view item »

Colman
Daedalus

Following on from releases of music by Visible Cloaks and Pedro, Portland’s record shop-turned-label Musique Plastique have decided to give reissues a go. John Gilbert Colman composed Daedalus in the mid-80s to accompany an avant-theatrical piece. It is, of course...view item »

Tim Hecker
Dropped Pianos

Apparently Tim is at the top of his game and has been for years accordingly to the press release. Slightly confused by that sentence...I would say that he's made some excellent records over the last few years and Ravedeath 1972 is nothing short of brilliance. Dropped Pianos is 9 tracks w...view item »

Kodaline
Politics Of Living

Aha! B-Unique Records, is it? Wondered when we’d see you again. The London ‘indie’ label may never scale the dizzying heights of the time when it had The Kaiser Chiefs, The Ordinary Boys and The Twang on its roster, but at least now it can call on the ...view item »

Tropic of Coldness
Framed Waves

Italian-American duo Tropic Of Coldness release their latest drone opus via Glacial Movements (bvdub & Loscil, Scanner). It’s a fittingly-named label for an album such as Framed Waves. This is a work of slow beauty built on sonic micro-shifts rather than ...view item »

Christina Vantzou
No. 4

This latest LP from Christina Vantzou is a bit of a love-in. Getting together with Angel Deradoorian, Forma's John Also Bennett, Clarice Jensen and a fair few others, the Belgian composer allowed her collaborators to add or delete parts at will. Surprisingly, the record doe...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 »

Drab Majesty
The Demonstration

As Drab Majesty Deb Demure takes the hazy and glamorous atmospherics of 1980s synth pop, but ties it to something darker, weirder and more experimental. The Demonstration, on vinyl LP and CD from DAIS, takes this combination even further, with heavy industrial elements, fingerpicked guitar and l...view item »

Sontag Shogun & Moskitoo
The Things We Let Fall Apart / The Thunderswan

Breathy-voiced Moskitoo (Sanae Yamasaki) joins forces with Sontag Shogun (Ian Temple, Jesse Perlstein and Jeremy Young) to produce a pair of gentle electroacoustic ambient numbers for Home Normal. Field recordings, piano, Moskitoo’s voice and various electronics are all more or less processed into an elega...view item »

Stray Theories
All That Was Lost

If you like ambient music then you'll probably like this third record from Stray Theories called All That Was Lost. When Templeton-Wolfe isn't busy writing and composing material for other musical ventures, he gets time to release gold like this which will appeal to fabs of Hammock and Eluvium. Available ...view item »

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.

Tim Linghaus
Memory Sketches

Last seen in 2016, debuting Vhoir on Moderna Records and turning a few heads, East German Tim Linghaus readies his next batch of tunes for Tokyo’s Schole Records. And Sweden’s 1631 Recordings. As before, Tim offers up a number of plodding, wistful piano pieces, laced with strings and delicate electronics....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 »

Immersion
Sleepless

Immersion is the pairing of Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel and Wire’s Colin Newman, dabbling once more in experimental goodness. Sleepless is beautifully put together, giving off nice kosmische vibes at times. The album also features some gu...view item »

Mac-Talla Nan Creag
The Sorrow Of Derdriu

We were a massive fan of Firecracker's first Mac-Talla Nan Craeg release, a record that curve-balled our expectations on the label to release good house bangers via an archaeological dig of Scotland's ancient landscape. One can only assume that participating artists Hoch Ma Toch, Other Lands and Lord Of The Isles have ...view item »

Dennis Young
Quest

After Liquid Liquid disbanded in 1983, percussionist/marimba player Dennis Young started working on a series of New Age-y solo records. Some of these were released as small cassette runs in South Korea. Now the archivists at Daehan Electronics have dusted off the original tapes and are planning ...view item »

Brian Eno With Daniel Lanois & Roger Eno
Apollo - Atmospheres & Soundtracks

The genius of Ambient does it again. Included is what I consider one of the best songs ever written: An Ending (Ascent). The rest of the album doesn't disappoint. A few songs approach (but never touch) the brilliance of An Ending (Ascent). The rest is pretty good filler, but remember: Brian Eno's filler is everyone else's best effort. This album...view item »

John Tilbury & Oren Ambarchi
The Just Reproach

Here’s a record which is dividing office opinions today. I picked it up from the grassy review knoll because I really enjoyed Ambarchi’s previous couple of records, not realising that when united with Tilbury his music is an entirely different proposition. This album is a slow and incredibly quiet affai...view item »

Steve Roach
Structures From Silence

Steve Roach’s landmark new age ambient album Structures From Silence was first released in 1984, and it's been lulling listeners into a deep state of suspended animation ever since. Structures From Silence is very slow and very spacious, with just a few well-chosen synth elements drifting around the sound...view item »

Fallen

Kutiman
Don't Hold Onto the Clouds

The multi-talented Kutiman drops a new full-length via his own Siyal Music imprint. Don’t Hold Onto the Clouds is, in the producer/instrumentalist/label-owner/animator’s own words, a record that helps him fall asleep. We can see why that’s the case - the four lengthy entries here are l...view item »

Melody As Truth (Jonny Nash & Suzanne Kraft)
Framed Space: Selected works 2014-2017

Melody As Truth AKA Amsterdam based producers Jonny Nash (not the I Can See Clearly Now guy!) and Suzanne Kraft (AKA Diego Herrera) have had their first three years work on the Melody As Truth label collected together as Framed Space: Selected Works 2014-2017.

Nik Turner & Youth

C. Diab
No Perfect Wave

No Perfect Wave is a stunning tonal mix of bowed guitars and tape manipulation that creates waves of shifting drones that are melancholic yet beautifully uplifting, no tension, just resolve. Arthur Russell, Colin Stetson, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor but if they spent the week with ...view item »

PRINT/TRACK 01 // PRINT/TRACK 02

Thesis Project’s PRINT/TRACK series is an interesting endeavour. It works one of two ways - either musicians create two pieces to which visual artists respond with a 10” work, or vice versa. The end result is a luxury vinyl. The first (Ed Carlsen, Heather Woods Broderick...view item »

Jonny Nash & Suzanne Kraft
Passive Agressive

The debut album-length collaboration of Jonny Nash and Suzanne Kraft is Passive Aggressive, and its a sweet and subtle suite of melodic ambience, composed with software synths, piano and guitar.

Jon Hassell
Listening To Pictures (Pentimento Volume One)

First album in nine years from Fourth World aesthetic creator Jon Hassell.

Using overdubs Hassell creates dense ever shifting layers that are an absolute joy on the ears. ...view item »

Tim Hecker
An Imaginary Country

Ha i've managed to locate the volume for my next audio treat. This one needs playing loud as it's by the prodigous Tim Hecker, one of my fave Kranky stars. I don't know quite how this man manages to construct such emotive, gleaming soundscapes, his warm banks of astral searching synths chatter away whilst pulsating waves of drone form a soothing so...view item »

Bonobo
Black Sands

From the Chinese strings that kick off "Prelude," you know you're in for something special with Bonobo's Black Sands. Black Sands is the culmination of several years of work for Bonobo. Throughout his career he has produced albums that seem as if they were the stepping stones to Black Sands. His previous albums had elements of greatness embedded...view item »

Pan American
White Bird Release

I remember a while back I had my eye on some Pan American album or other but I never got around to a purchase and I can't say it's something I've ever cried myself to sleep over. Perhaps it's because I've always found them to be almost the definitive solid Kranky band, all their releases are good but I don't think any of them are spectacular. White...view item »

Portishead
Third

Portishead have kept a low profile in the nine years since Third was released. Will they ever release another album? If not, the savage trip-hop trailblazers certainly ended with something special. Reinterpreting all sorts from krautrock to folk song, the album’s menacing unease still haunts today. No wonder an en...view item »
