Sketches From New Brighton

Right-o, over the past two or three years this man here has become a bit obsessed with Vancouver's Loscil. I really liked his last Kranky opus 'Endless Falls' but there's something s...view item »


Quaeschning & Schnauss
Synthwaves

Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss were both disciples of the sadly departed Edgar Froese, and their album Synthwaves kneels at the altar of the greats, notably Tangerine Dream. Precise synth modulations and mutations aplenty then, made on pristine analog equipment. Kosmiche sounds to drift off to...view item »


James Green
Donkey Jukebox

Donkey Jukebox started life as an art installation by James Green in a Yorkshire pub. Green created pieces of music by looping phrases he played on a French lap organ and weaving them into nonrepeating linear soundscapes. Artist and musician Green is hardly prolific as a solo artist, this being only his second album in 13 years,...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog – Vol. 9-11

Deathprod
Imaginary Songs From Tristan Da Cunha

Helge 'Deathprod' Sten is a patient man, sometimes creating entire soundworlds from tiny pieces of recording, slowed down and manipulated until every detail is palpable. For me his most essential piece, and the most accessible to newcomers, would be his 'Morals and Dogma' opus, which feat...view item »


Air
Talkie Walkie

Rhino Records are in the midst of a campaign of reissuing the discography of Air, the smooth, loungey French synth-charmers.
