  • Vinyl Double LP (KRANK171V)

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, masterfully imbued with emotion. Floaty LP -- or CD -- on Azure Vista.

Gregg Kowalsky
L'Orange L'Orange

Gregg Kowalsky, who used to be half of Date Palms, presents new work. L’Orange L’Orange grew out of earlier work for manipulated tape machines, but takes that approach into lusher territory with a suite of dense and delicious ambient tracks that are almost pop-like in their listenability. Released on Mexican Summer.

Suso Saiz
Rainworks

Having not released anything since 2008, Music From Memory released a compilation of Spanish ambient electronica producer and composer Suso Saiz. Known for his work with Orquesta de las Nubes and Música Esporádica as well as recording with Steve Reich, he has returned with a full length. Stunning, near abstract, and minimal in the most maximal of senses. Want glorious electroacoustic drones? Come here.

Celestial Music 1978 - 2011


  • Vinyl Triple LP (WAST036LP)

Moon Zero
Relationships Between Inner & Outer Space

Moon Zero’s new album, the grandly-titled Relationships Between Inner & Outer Space, begins with a track named for Iceland’s ‘Keflavik’ airport that shimmers and swells into a dense mass of all sorts of melodic and textural sounds, sourced from instruments, tape loops, field recordings and more. And so it continues, in lush Denovali style.

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.

Carta
The Sand Collector's Dream

A ten track release from the really really sad (apparently) US based band Carta. Their fourth record that makes you want to think about every little thing you've ever said or done to anybody and apologise with your hearts' greatest meaning. The Sand Collector's Dream is available on Vinyl LP and is released on Saint Marie. 
  • Vinyl LP (SMR110LP)

When The Sun Hits
Immersed Within Your Eyes

Nottingham band When The Sun Hits make huge sounding songs. Over the six tracks on their new EP, Immersed Within Your Eyes, they dabble with early-Verve style swells, gaze at their shoes and link stuff together with ambient passages akin to that of Seefeel or early Aphex Twin. But it wouldn’t be When The Sun Hits if the songs didn’t have mammoth choruses, so they're in the mix too. Limited Edition of 250 copies on Saint Marie.

Correspondence
Wave Recital

Molars alumni Ben Catt is Correspondence, and Wave Pictures is the first full album of the project. Each track is borne out of a particular process (following the inspiration of Steve Reich and Julius Eastman), but the record doesn’t sound programmatic: no, it is full of lively loops, colourful marimba lines, and poppy textures. Cassette from Audiobulb.

exedra
Entropic

Ambient comes in many shapes and forms, and we’re all for that. One guy plays piano and synthesizer, the other guy puts on his lowest voice and reads brooding poetry. Sound like your cup of tea? Then don’t pass up on the chance to buy the Entropic EP by exedra. It takes all colors to make a rainbow!

Pop Ambient 2018

The release of Kompakt’s annual Pop Ambient compilation is always one of the loveliest musical events of the year: always a warm, luscious swirl of pulsating beats and shimmering synths from some of the best producers in the game. Pop Ambient 2018 features exclusive cuts from Max Wurden & Tore Pfeiffer, The Orb, Kaito and many more. Twelve tracks of goodness on Kompakt.

Keith Berry
VIABLE SYSTEMS 1

What point is there to life if you can’t pretend you’re a cloud every now and then? Keith Berry (not the boxer) knows exactly what it's like to be a floating body of evaporated water, and his new album Viable Systems 1 is like a warm cocoon of gently shifting and transposing pads. Think Pausal, think beatless Selected Ambient Works, think Kompakt's Pop Ambient series.

Luke Howard
Sun, Cloud / Night, Cloud

Sun, Cloud has previously only been made available in Australia, but no more! Now UK listeners can also enjoy Luke Howard’s music. Piano is central to these compositions, spinning delicate neo-classical melodies into the air, where strings, electronics and field recordings add texture to the mix. This CD release of Sun, Cloud also comes with Night, Cloud, an extra disc of remixes by various producers.

Richard Neale
EVES

Purveyor of gentle electronica and lover of hexagons Richard Neale presents his new album EVES via the charmingly-named Rain Bear Records. Piano leads layers of weightless vocals and ambient sections throughout these somnolent, folk-tinged numbers. Mastered by the excellent James Plotkin, the CD comes housed in swell die-cut hexagonal packaging.

Isnaj Dui
Poiesis

Isnaj Dui, aka experimental musician Katie English, presents her new full-length Poiesis. True to form, she continues to blend sparse motifs created from all sorts of electronic and acoustic sources. Her trademark Orientalist flute is present, if less so than previously. Slow and artful, English covers a spectrum from playful to quite sinister and tense. Poiesis comes in a hand-stamped sleeve, as with all Rural Colours releases.

No-Man
Returning Jesus

First released in 2001, here is another chance for you to get your hands on Returning Jesus, a key statement from no-man. A sublimely subtle suite of art-rock songwriting with a smooth, lush, ECM-jazz instrumental palette. This reissue is available as a double LP or as a double CD, with the CD edition also including a stack of b-sides, demos and other associated rarities.

raven
the night is dark, the night is silent, the night is bright, the night is loud

New album from Peter Hollo’s (Fourplay, Tangents) solo project Raven. At it’s heart, is his cello, creating loops, drones and ambiences. Backed up with electronics, sampling and piano Hollo doesn’t so much force two worlds together but molds them to fit seamlessly. Neo classical meets breakbeats, noise and glitches. Think Squarepusher meets Arthur Russell.

Pia Fraus
Field Ceremony

Estonian dream-pop shoegazers Pia Fraus enter their 20th year with the release of Field Ceremony, their first album in 10 years. Sweeping melodies glide over ethereal instrumentation whilst their gaze is fixed to their feet. If you like My Bloody Valentine, Chapterhouse, The Pastels or The Pale Saints, you should probably give this a go.

Aparde
Glass

After a couple of small releases on Dusted Wax Kingdom and Keller, Paul Schröder’s Aparde project unveils it’s debut full length on Ki Records. Atmospheric techno meets Moderat pop “song” direction, emotively enrapturing and so slickly produced it’ll make weep. Available on LP and CD.
  • Vinyl LP (KILP13)

The Orb
U.F.Orb

U.F.Orb was considered as a prog rock album by journalists at the time of its release in 1992. Now, The Orb’s second long-player is rightly regarded as a classic of the ambient genre. Alex Patterson’s ability to channel Eno-eque sounds and take them into a new musical era was strengthened by Kris Weston’s creativity and technical ability. U.F.Orb features guest appearances from Jah Wobble on Bass and Steve Hillage on guitar.

Fantastic Twins
Obakodomo

The Twins (as they were previously known) have got a little self confidence and are now Fantastic Twins. Good for ‘em. Here’s their debut LP out on Optimo Music. Obakodomo is composed as a soundtrack to a contemporary dance performance done by dancers for an audience of toddlers. It’s a transportative soundtrack of playful, frightening and strange sounds.
  • Vinyl LP (OMLP12)

Colleen
A Flame My Love, A Frequency

French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott returns to Thrill Jockey with her seventh full length album as Colleen. A large step away from her usual sound palette, Schott replaces her viola da gamba with synthesizers and electronic processes, opening new worlds to explore. Available on both LP and CD.

Off World
2

Off World got off to a flying start last year with I, a record released as part of a trilogy of electronic works on Constellation echoing back to their Musique Fragile Series. Featuring avant-folk artist Sandro Perri, the group's record offered beguiling instrumental twists that sounded like vintage coming back to life; the roster appears to have changed here, Perri joined by the likes of labelmate Eric Chenaux as well as Matthew Cooper, Susumu Mukai and others.

Jon Hassell
Dream Theory In Malaya (Fourth World Volume Two)

Here is an album that displays Jon Hassell’s early conception of Fourth World music: an attempt to step outside of rigid cultural boundaries. Dream Theory In Malaya was recorded with Brian Eno and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on board, and uses an engaging combination of electronically-affected trumpet, field recordings, glitches and drones, and much more besides. Reissued with a bonus track, on Glitterbeat.

Snow Palms
Origin and Echo

Snow Palms is a project of David Sheppard (he also wrote an acclaimed Brian Eno biography) that focuses on the rich power of mallet instruments, exploiting the fabulous combination of melodicism and percussion that these instruments (think marimbas and metallophones) can provide. Origin And Echo is full of excellent intuitive compositions, and is released by Village Green.

Jon Keliehor
The Beginning Of Time

Having created compositions for London Contemporary Dance Theatre, Royal Ballet and many other contemporary dance productions Jon Keliehor has honed his composition through gamelan and field samples to create this alien world. As if you are sat on a beach or in a forest on another planet, these ambient and subtle soundscapes seem familiar but foreign.

Steve Hauschildt
Where All Is Fled

Former glittering Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt’s new solo LP is a typically expansive suite of pieces, pulling in synthesis, field recordings and acoustic instrumentation to form some heady trips. Where All Is Fled wavers between abstraction and melodies, mostly hitting that sweet spot where neither dominates. On Kranky.

Julian Cope
Rite At Ya

Rite At Ya is a collection of 4 monumental cosmic jams from the Arch Drude, Julian Cope. It’s the 5th in the series of Rite albums, which he began putting out in the early ‘90s. The music contained here dates from 1993 to the present day. This will swallow you whole and spit you back out. A thoroughly worthwhile experience after trudging through the daily grind. CD only on Head Heritage.

Devils for my Darling

Their previous outing came on the loveliest of warm drone labels Eilean, and now omrr show up for Dronarivm with a release of densely textured microambient.

Kryshe
March Of The Mysterious

Not music for an imaginary soundtrack, thank goodness: Christian Grothe aka Kryshe initially made this music as a score for a special screening of the 1915 film Alice In Wonderland. A confounding synthesis of contemporary, free jazz and brooding filmic ambience, the record's atmosphere matches the darkly joyous surrealism of Lewis Carroll.

Laraaji
Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance

People forget that the 3rd part of Brian Eno’s Ambient series wasn’t just another solo Eno outing: it was actually mostly the work of Laraaji, the spiritual zither experimentalist. Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance is a lush and gorgeous thing whose influence stretches far. It has been remastered and is pressed to 180g vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. On Glitterbeat.

Carmen Villain
Infinite Avenue

Carmen Villain’s first album since 2013’s Sleeper looks likely to find the singer moving into ever-more expansive sonic territory. This move was threatened by Infinite Avenue’s light-as-gossamer first single ‘Planetarium’, a track that sounded like Radiohead’s ‘Sail to the Moon’ being covered by Grouper. If that song and the follow-up ‘Red Desert’ are anything to go by, Infinite Avenue will be a record of cerebral drones and quietly confident songwriting. Jenny Hval guests on ‘Borders’.

The latest opus from reclusive rural psychedelia explorers Auburn Lull veers into new territories showcasing a newfound love of minimalism and restrained composition.

Tim Mislock
Now Is The Last Best Time

Tim Mislock has created a world to make you feel like you are floating in a vast, organic space without boundaries. Mislock’s debut solo album, Now Is The Last Best Time, is an ambient record filled with guiding guitar. He has had to watch his stepdad experience dementia; the slow, inevitable deterioration brought about by Alzheimer’s has informed and shaped the record. He cites Eno, Eluvium and particularly Gavin Bryars as musical influences.

Memnon Sa
Lemurian Dawn

London-based sonic maven Misha Hering (also known as Among The Bones) makes a stylistic leap with his second album as Memnon Sa, moving on from the doom metal growl of Citadel to embrace a formidable arsenal of analogue synthesisers as the fuel for his wall of sound ruminations. With broad, tumbling set pieces to unleash his banks of fuzzy oscillations across, this is as brooding and bombastic an update on the prog tradition as you’re likely to get.

Leigh Toro

Leigh Toro has Layers of Ash released on lovely Rural Colours (RC081). For his third -- if you don’t count his Flotel releases on Expanding Records -- granular sounds are frayed round the edges to make textural distortions that highlight the contrasts and contradictions between abrasive frequencies and more subtle resonances. An edition of 100, CDr in nice card and artwork by Katie English.

Simfonica
Letters In Time

‘Letters in Time’ is an art concept release from Simfonica that has so far been unavailable to buy in its complete form due to apparent political content on two of the tracks. Despite heaping much praise on the project – “You have created a very brilliant sound there… It is amazing to experience how you combine audible and visual aesthetics in order to illustrate your reflection of the individual topics…” etc. – the German label concerned told Simfonica, “I am hesitating to release the DVD. The reasons are the topics MLK and World War I. Political content and context is something that I really want to keep away from the label.” Maybe it reflects an understandable German sensitivity, but the suggestion that the content should be re-defined or restricted only adds to the suspense and eeriness of this audio/visual release from Simfonica. The full ‘Letters In Time’ DVD is now presented by TM Studios.

Narkopop

Well what do we have here then? Following on from that enormous box set of his greatest work of 20 years vintage, Wolfgang Voigt re-ignites his Gas project with a new album which, though it continues the thick foggy sonics of earlier work introduces dense and sometimes atonal sonics to the magical mist with that pulsing kick drum as always ever present.

MJ Guider
Precious Systems

Influenced by the landscape around her New Orleans home, Melissa Guion has made a record of pastoral drifting electronic haze that coupled with her dream like, affected voice makes the whole thing sit somewhere between Grouper and early Cocteau Twins. Therefore she is almost the perfect artist for Kranky. On initial listen this has something to suggest that it could have lasting appeal to fans of rural psychedelics.

Joel Jerome
Cosmic Bear Jamboree

Joel Jerome, 'LA's Behind-the-Scenes Indie King' is back with Cosmic Bear Jamboree. Jerome evokes the slacker cool of the likes of Mac Demarco and Beck with ease, plus the vintage artiness of Ariel Pink. Featuring kaleidoscopic choirs, warm guitar licks and plenty-o' spacey reverb, his new album contains the hits 'Cosmic Dancer', 'Errbody Wants Somebody' and 'Complicated Man'. More psychedelic thriftstore folk-pop fun assured.

X.Y.R
Labyrinth

Downbeat sounds from what sounds like a snowed-in St. Petersburg, what X.Y.R has made here is a record of pop music obscured in ambience. His keyboard works sound muted, even untouced here, as if the keys are serving themselves from an attic corner -- with its foggy beats and low-key melodies, his music sounds like a lovely, recently rediscovered antique.

Andrea Belfi
Ore

Andrea Belfi is a dab hand behind the drumkit and also behind the live electronics console (here featuring a sampler and a modular synth). On new solo record Ore he mixes his various approaches into a bustling suite of rhythmically driven electroacoustics, showing off Belfi’s smart texturally-driven approach. Released by the Float label.

Siavash Amini
TAR

Containing an ocean-sized depth of emotion and meaning, TAR is Tehran-based producer Siavash Amini's 2017 brainchild. Comprised of four offerings, including the mammoth twelve-minutes-plus tracks 'A Dream's Frozen Reflection' and 'The Dust We Breathe', this is a sophisticated take on modern drone and classical genres.

Biosphere
The Petrified Forest

From his hazy and ambient universe, Norwegian producer Geir Jenssen - aka Biosphere - has begun to raise eyebrows with his eery brand of twisted techno. Returning with The Petrified Forest, a mini album inspired by the 1930's movie of the same title, Jenssen boasts his creativity with a bewildering sense of unfathomable atmospheres.

Tommy Awards
Inre Rymden

Tommy Awards aren't some kind of awards showcase ('Guess what? I won a Tommy') but a Swedish outfit who combine slo-motion house with new age funk and the kind of elegance not seen on Roxy Music's 'Avalon'. Quite a combination and add in bits of Popol Vuh and David Crosby (?) and you are in the dream like melting point the band have presumably envisioned.

Phonophani
Animal Imagination

Norwegian producer/composer Espen Sommer Eide records under the name Phonophani, after a slew of releases on Rune Grammofon he moves to the Hubro label for his latest full length Animal Imagination. Gaining huge influence from early ambient electronica he creates almost aggressive ambient spaces with a hard percussive pulse, dense, powerful and lush.

Anton Kubikov
Whatness

Best known for his work as one half of Russian synth agitators SCSI-9, Anton Kubikov has stepped out on his own with an album of weightless ambient pieces. The tracks here combine synthetic soundscapes, somnambulant ivory tinkling and generous helpings of reverb. All in all, the overall effect is one of pleasant tranquility.

From the Carboniferous

Alder & Ash
Clutched in the Maw of the World

Look towards Colin Stetson and Warren Ellis and Nick Cave soundtracks, take a cello, loop pedal and an array of effects and travel via noise, post-rock and doom influences. This is where you’ll find Montreal’s Alder & Ash. Minimal yet cacophonous it swings between gentle and emotionally tense to distorted relief. Incredibly limited physical copies made.

Stereocilia
The Road to the Unconscious Past

Stereocilia is the work of John Scott, one man busily working away amidst a load of synths, guitars and samplers to knit together this record of finely weaved post-rock-drone. The Road To The Unconscious Past recalls some of Mark McGuire’s work, with thoughtful guitar lines held in suspended synth-animation. Out on the Echoic Memory.

Trevor De Brauw
Uptown

Trevor De Brauw is the guitarist of Pelican, and this is his first solo release. Although don’t assume that he’s only just had the idea: Uptown has been slowly created over the course of the last ten years. Uptown pushes away from songs and riffs and into dense drone-ambient territory, where it turns out Trevor is a master of the kind of careful control needed to really succeed with this stuff. CD and LP editions on The Flenser.

Richard Bone
Age of Falconry

After initially working in his own band, Bone, and new wavers Shox Lumania in the late 70s and 80s Richard Bone set up Quirkworks Laboratory Discs and went solo to experiment with ambient electronica meeting jazz and lounge. Landing somewhere between Penguin Cafe Orchestra and Bayonne there’s lots of lush acoustic and semi acoustic repetition and chord structures.

Isnaj Dui
Dioptrics

The next stage of Isnaj Dui's exploration of flute-driven ambient caress is Dioptrics, the Yorkshire-based artist's 9th solo release, this time back on Fbox Records. Things are about to get a little more dissonant, which means that there may be wince-inducing moments amongst the soothing toots and taps that you'd usually associate with the instrument. If 'usual' could ever be used to desribe Isnaj Dui.

Ian William Craig
Slow Vessels

Ian William Craig somewhat returns to his tremendously loved 2016 album Centres with an EP that relocates some of those pieces onto voice, piano and acoustic guitar, with just a few licks of subtle tape manipulation lapping at the edges. Slow Vessels proves that Craig’s songwriting is just as powerful when it stands naked as when it is wreathed in fuzz magic. 12” on 130701.

C Duncan
Wanted To Want It Too

After gaining a Mercury prize nomination and a boat load more production skills with his debut album, C Duncan, returns with a new single. It’s a huge washy and glorious synth-ballad. Straight shooting drums and walking bass line with almost orchestral synth arrangements, and his layered voice floating around somewhere in the middle.

C Duncan
Other Side

Cute lil' 7" from the once folk-quaint C. Duncan, who did what every indie rock darling does and played around with synths on The Midnight Sun. "Other Side" was one of Duncan's first public excursions with electronics and offered a shimmering sideways glance to his usual style, his delicate and decidedly Grizzly Bear vocal mingling with warm layers of tone. It's arguably the song bridging the disconnect between Midnight Sun and his debut Architect, and it's matched with a new tune on the flip, the typically titled "Sibling".

The Ship

A new Brian Eno album is always something to get excited about, but particularly after a four year wait and in collaboration with the iconic Warp records. The Ship is Eno on classic form, creating beautiful ambient music built from minimalist drones. Here he's also particularly fascinated with looping voices and has included a Velvet Underground cover for good measure.
