Karma Moffett
Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without

Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without by Karma Moffet was originally released in 1982. The album was at the forefront of the growing New Age movement in the early ‘80s. Moffet was a pioneer in the genre, but not for his use of new available technology, more for not using it and getting new sounds from field recordings and ancient instruments such as Tibetan bowls and bells.

An Explore
1

The functionally titled 1 from duo An Explore brings together two incredibly talented musicians from the British avant-garde scene - Rob Macdonald (founder of the Scratch nightclub, and part of Speeka, Jumbonics and Gum Drop) and Lucy Wilkins (touring and recording violinist). This thoughtful EP is available on both CD and 10” vinyl. 

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
Loon

Another installment of the intimate improvisational collaboration series between Erased Tapes figureheads Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm. The material on Loon came about from a couple of days spent with some new synthesisers and a few effects units. The results are delicate, beautiful and explorative. 12” on Erased Tapes.

Julia Kent
Green and Grey (Expanded)

Oh no. We're getting releases already for Black Friday. But the good news is that this Julia Kent record might be worth getting. It is her second album from 2011 on vinyl for the first time including the 'Last Day in July' EP and two unreleased tracks. You may know by know the sound of Kent's looped cello which she places amongst electronics and field recordings and if not this could be a good place to start.

Kirk Barley
Landscapes

Constructed from edited improvisations and a vast library of his own acoustic and electronic sounds and field recordings, Landscapes is the latest record from the prolific Kirk Barley (who also records under the name Bambooman). These 11 tracks are squeezed into barely over half an hour, but create a constantly moving tapestry of ever-shifting moods and soundscapes.

Nils Frahm
Encores 3

Nils Frahm is also known as the 'piano man' and indeed invented that 'piano day' you see people rattling on about every year. Encores 3 is the third (natch) of his trilogy of work exploring different avenues of his sound. Where part one was generally solo piano and acoustic and part two ambient, part three is all about the percussive and electronic side of his music. The three EPs will at some stage be available as one 80 minute collection but for now it's time to delve in to the last in the series as a standalone disc.

Night Flowers
Fortune Teller

London's Night Flowers have slowly been getting known for their emotional dream pop that recalls those early 90s bands that time forgot who trailed in the wake of the likes of the Sundays and Belly. On this their second album they continue to marry '80s and '90s influences for big venue-ready indie pop with jangling, dreamy guitars skirting round Sophie Petit's swooping voice. Straight ahead stuff but with a crucial emotional core that ensures these songs yearn effectively.

Paraiso EP is released via Leaving Records and is showing L.A. how lo-fi ambient records should be made. Paraiso EP is part one of a two-part series If you like Boards Of Canada, Teebs, Flying Lotus and Madlib you should check this out.

Nils Frahm
Encores 2

La la la, plink plonk plink, some new Nils Frahm here to make you think. The Pianist For All Millennials drops the second of his Encore EPs via Erased Tapes. This one kind of sounds like a more highfalutin take on Vangelis’s score for Blade Runner. Encores 2 is definitely music, and when all things are considered that’s probably a good thing.

Ryan Teague
Recursive Iterations

On Recursive Iterations, Ryan Teague mixes electronics and acoustic instruments, post-rave, neo-classical and film scores to create a widescreen minimalist soundscape that is masterful in its use of space and restraint. There have been comparisons to Oneohtrix Point Never, The Haxan Cloak and Ital Tek, so if they float your boat, give this a go.

Steve Hauschildt
Nonlin

Steve Hauschildt has been long admired in these parts, firstly for his work with experimental electronic trio Emeralds and then as a solo artist with classic albums such as Where All Is Fled and Strands. His new album, Nonlin, is his sixth and sees him evolve yet further. Another classic? We shall see, but the chances are good.

SRSQ
Temporal Love / Unkept

SRSQ is singer / songwriter Kennedy Ashlyn. Ashlyn used to be one half of dream pop duo Them Are US Too with Cash Askew. Askew tragically died in 2016 in the fire at a warehouse known as the Ghost Ship that belonged to an Oakland, California artist collective. It has taken Ashlyn some time to come to terms with the tragedy and recording her debut album as SRSQ, Unreality, in 2018 has helped ease the pain. Temporal Love / Unkept is her new single. An album will follow in 2020.

Yoshio Ojima
Une Collection des Chaînons II: Music for Spiral

A first-ever vinyl release for the second part of Une Collection des Chaînons: Music For Spiral, an environmentally orientated music project from composer Yoshio Ojima. It was originally commissioned and released in 1988 for the spiral-shaped atrium at the Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, and is designed to be listened to at ambient, background noise level - in Ojima’s own words “at around the same volume as daily life sounds such as air conditioners and refrigerators”.

Sam Mallet
Wetlands

Late film score composer Sam Mallet made music that took pointers from a wide range of influences: Arvo Pärt, Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, John Coltrane and Jon Hassell to name a few. He made soundtracks that straddled the worlds of ambient, jazz and rock that accompanied TV series, short films and even experimental video art. Wetlands is the result of a thorough dig into Mallet’s archive by Rowan Mason (Sanpo Disco/Recurring Dream) and Tony Remple (Musique Plastique).

Arp
Ensemble - Live!

Alexis Georgopoulos, better known by his stage name Arp, delivers a new 12” EP for the Mexican Summer label. Following the recent success of his studio-bound album Zebra, this new collection Ensemble - Live! showcases him as a musician, interacting spontaneously with four other musicians in the same room. 

Hollie Kenniff
The Gathering Dawn

Hollie Kenniff was once one half of the duo Mint Julep with her husband Keith Kenniff, who was also known for his involvement with Helios and Goldmund. The Gathering Dawn is her debut solo album and finds the Canadian-American musician at the centre of sprawling ambient work made from icy synths, softened guitars, and Kenniff’s mournful vocals.

Astatine
Global Exposure

Stéphane Recrosio aka Astatine is the wild man of the Paris lo-fi scene releasing scores of lathe cut singles and limited releases onto the world. It's nice that Sound in Silence are bringing his work to a wider audience as his shambling distorted lo-fi needs to be heard by the type of ears who worship at the altar of Guided By Voices, Sebadoh/Sebtridoh and particularly the early Hood lo-fi experiments.

Bersarin Quartett
Methoden und Maschinen

Bersarin Quartett is the ambient project of German DJ, sound designer and musician Thomas Bücker. Methoden und Maschinen is the fourth album by the project. It seems Bücker has allowed influences from Andy Stott, Tim Hecker, Fennesz, Murcof, Dictaphone and Hidden Orchestra with whom Bersarin Quartett has played with in recent years. This, of course, is no bad thing.

Rich Ruth
Calming Signals

Calming Signals is an ambient record with additional emotional catharsis. (Michael) Rich Ruth has played in a number of bands, but has also been making ambient music in his own time. Ruth was carjacked during the recording of the album. This meant the album became a way of him changing a horrible experience into something positive.

J Colleran
EP01

Producer J Colleran launches his new label venture Oyae with the release of his own new five-track EP, available on 12” vinyl. Anyone who saw him this summer on the festival circuit will know the kind of thing contained on EP01 - slippery, mutating and frenetic modern dance music rubbing up against glacial ambience.

Seahawks & WOO
Celestial Railroads

This is an interesting collaboration where transcendental psychedelic types Seahawks rework the music of gloriously hushed turn of the 80s duo Woo. There are two completely contrasting styles at work here so it will be interesting to see how this works. The press release suggests something like Spacemen 3 reworking the KLF. At least it's not the SeaHORSES and Woo collaborating as I originally (mis)read. 

Dan Armstrong
A Long Time Coming

Do you like to chill? Do too many drums put you on edge? Do you enjoy Biosphere, William Orbit and all the sort of stuff? If you said yes to any of those questions then Dan Armstrong’s A Long Time Coming is very much the record for you. To be honest, even if you didn’t answer in the affirmative this LP of tranquil downtempo ambient compositions is still well worth your time.

Ummagma
Compass

Electronically-enhanced rock duo Ummagma return with their first album in seven years, and their first to ever be released on vinyl. With the long wait explained by the years it took them to move from Russia to Canada, Compass is the album that most accurately reflects the band’s post-genre approach.

Jonas Meyer
Konfusion

Apparent studio magpie, Jonas Meyer, releases his debut album, Konfusion, through Serein. The German musician makes his music from picking whatever catches his eye in the studio - various keyboards and synths and percussion, which are then manipulated. His sound straddles the precise editing of the digital world and more organic, gentle sounds.

Kryshe
Continuum

Continuum is the third album by electronic artist Kryshe making him a major artist in the Serein stable. As the title suggests, the album is very much a continuation of the ambient sounds from previous albums March of the Mysterious and Hauch. A mix of dreamlike sounds made from voice, strings and field recordings.

Lo Five
Geography of the Abyss

Lo Five, AKA Neil Grant is a Liverpool based producer who plies his trade in the world of ambient and experimental electronica. Geography of the Abyss is his second full length album. The music explores states of mind and how our perception of things can change - a thematic continuation from his first album. 

Oliver Patrice Weder
OPW

A classically-influenced jazz and piano player, Swiss-born musician Oliver Patrice Weder has composed music for the film The Haunted as well as soundtracks for the BBC in his career. He now presents his debut album OPW, on which he’s been writing over the last couple of years, on SA Recordings.

Isnaj Dui
Sight Seeing

Katie English has attracted a devoted cult fanbase over the years for her impressionistic electronica under her Isnaj Dui moniker. Two years after her triumphant Poiesis album comes Sight Seeing, a record conceptually concerned with synaesthesia but also a range of common and rare sight disorders and which sees the compositions constantly degrading and distorting. 

A Winged Victory For The Sullen
The Undivided Five

Their fifth release (but only their second official studio album) and based around the idea of the perfect fifth, A Winged Victory For The Sullen begin a new life on Ninja Tune with a bold different direction on 'The Undivided Five'. Built on their neo-classical and ambient roots, it’s by far the duo of Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie's (Stars of the Lid) most immersive and detailed work yet.

Kali Malone

Dallas Acid
The Spiral Arm

The Spiral Arm is the first album for All Saint Records by synth-orientated dream-pop group Dallas Acid, and their third album proper overall in the last decade. The trio’s career has also seen them do soundtrack work, and collaborate last year with Laraaji, and that fondness for and experience in creating cinematic soundscapes is detectable here.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cry

Promising more blissful, narcoleptic dream-pop after the success of his early singles, Greg Gonzalez delivers his second Cigarettes After Sex album, Cry. Recorded and finessed by Gonzalez himself during sessions in the middle of the night in Spain, it’s another suite of meditations on intimacy and heartbreak.

Netherworld
Algida Bellezza

Inspired by first-time fatherhood, Glacial Movements label founder Alessandro Tedeschi - also known as Netherworld - has dedicated his latest album Algida Bellezza to his baby daughter. With its tracks named after the Latin labels for various Arctic-dwelling animals, the almost entirely synthesiser-driven collection is preoccupied with disappearing innocence and beauty.

Land Of Light
The World Lies Breathing

With its strange glitchy and twinkling melodies, Land of Light return from a seven year break with new LP 'The World Lies Breathing'.

Scottish /  Portugese producer and artist SHHE  has the real name of Su Shaw, which when said all together repeatedly makes for a different version of a popular tongue twister. In a quest to find herself, SHHE left her old life in Fife behind to find herself among a bunch of creative types in Dundee. It was this that helped her capture her atmospheric, sparse, haunted vision that is her self-titled debut album.

Matt Christensen was the guitarist and singer for Zelienpole, a band on the edges of slowcore, post-rock and shoegaze. His solo work is similar, but a more spacious and eerie. Wim Lecluyse who runs Morc Records, records under the name Circle Bros and has a sound that, over the years, has changed from ambient to song-based project. Their split single is available through Morc Records.

M. Grig
Mount Carmel

12k brings you dobro, lap- and pedal-steel guitarist M. Grig’s latest work, Mount Carmel. Modern ambient bingo grids at the ready: the PR is seven paragraphs of exposition, it’s his “most personal record to date” and yes indeed, the music embraces hazy, pastoral nostalgia. It’s delectably engineered - it’s 12k after all - and a calm, delicate and rich listen. Good stuff.

Corey Fuller
Break

12k welcomes back Tokyo-based Corey Fuller, he of the delicately disciplined duo Illuha. Break boasts a theme: that, to quote Scatman John, “everyone struggles one way or the other”. So check out Fuller’s message to you: let this detailed, meticulously recorded and mixed take on Tim Hecker’s drone-dramatics plop a dollop of catharsis into your life.

Erik Levander
Inåt

Swedish multi-instrumentalist Erik Levander joins the Forwind label with his latest album release Inåt (meaning ‘Inwards’). As opposed to the largely synthesiser-based nature of his previous LP Couesnon, these five new compositions mix both digital and acoustic instrumentation and use it as a platform for the listener to journey inside their minds. 

Seasons (pre-din)
Distortion Of The Cell

The confusingly monikered Seasons (pre-din) is a Manchester artist previously working in the ambient and drone fields. You want it darker? Ok then Seasons (pre-din) have dialled up the doom on this new album which blends in post punk and dirty underground club sounds to the mix. Sometimes soothing, sometimes frighteningly abrasive it draws on a larger palette of sounds to emerge with a more varied work than before.

PCM
Attraverso

PCM are a new ambient trio consisting of Francesco Perra, Matteo Cantaluppi and Matteo Miliea. All have previous form in ambient music and sound design but here collaborate on an album on which they try to blend drone music, haunting shards of guitar and kosmische synth. Interesting to see an ambient group, well versed as we are at seeing ambient music made by one solitary composer. Should be an interesting mix.

With perhaps his most introspective and thought-provoking release yet, John Roberts returns with 'Can Thought Exist Without The Body'. It marks his return to the piano, parking chugging house grooves in favour of a more ambient and spatial sound. The perfect soundtrack to self-reflection and meditation.

Inoyama Land
Commissions: 1977-2000

Bloody hell. Makoto Inoue and Yasushi Yamashita have been making Ambient and New Age sounds for over four decades as Inoyama Land (see what they did there?) Here is a collection spanning the years 1977 to 2000 and this remastered LP perfectly exemplifies the nostalgic and pastoral synthesizer- led sound that has become their trademark. Comes with interview, liner notes and photos. Essential for all fans of transcendental new age and lost documents. 

Thomas Méreur
Dyrholaey

Constructed almost entirely from piano and vocals, Thomas Méreur’s debut studio album Dyrhólaey evokes the vast expanses of Icelandic wilderness that inspired the record. The space of the music and the loneliness of nature fold back in to the record’s secondary theme, that of grief and personal loss.
