Gia Margaret
There's Always Glimmer

Gia Margaret’s There’s Always Glimmer was one of the slow-burn hits of 2018 in the U.S.A.. Produced by Margaret herself and initially issued in July to little fanfare, interest in the record snowballed to the point where it ended the year in the ‘Best Of’ lists from Gorilla Vs. Bear and The Line Of Best Fit. It’s only right, then, that There’s Always Glimmer should get its first pressing outside of the U.S. courtesy of Dalliance Recordings. The shoegaze-shrouded folk songs here are reminiscent of Lyla Foy and Juliana Barwick.

OKADA
Life Is But An Empty Dream

Seventh full-length album from avant-garde artist Gregory Pappas, recording under his moniker OKADA. Consisting of four lengthy pieces of largely ambient but occasionally violent and cathartic electronica, Life Is But An Empty Dream is also the first album from Pappas to ever be pressed on to vinyl.

Thomas William Hill
Grains of Space

Multi-instrumental melodician Thomas William Hill (Origamibiro) follows 2017’s Asylum for Eve with Grains of Space. This one developed from loops on a viola da gamba to whose silent gaps were added bits from other instruments - pianos, metallophones, gongs, singing bowls and more, including the dreaded drum machines and analogue synthesisers. Elaborate and slightly erratic music ensues.

Beauty Sleep
Be Kind

Beauty Sleep are a trio from Belfast who play ‘80s influenced synth pop, or dream pop as it tends to be called these days. They love what they do and it shines through in their positive pop. Be Kind is their debut album and follows on from a couple of successful singles, 'Until We See The Sun' and 'All In'. On Quiet Arch.

Rev Magnetic
Versus Universe

How does music that ranges in sound from Abba to Vaughan Williams via My Bloody Valentine grab you? If you like the idea then perhaps you should try Versus Universe by Rev Magnetic. A Mogwai-approved wide ranging mix of sounds from This new Scottish four-piece who feature former Long Fin Killie frontman Luke Sutherland could possibly claim to be the world’s first post-rock-R&B-shoegaze band. On Rock Action.

Thelema
Entrance Totrance

Entrance Totrance by Thelma is and album of modular synthesizer soundscapes designed for the listener to get lost in. To be entranced by, to induced into a trance by. The artwork, created by artist Trevor Naud, is also part of the dazzling experience. On Klangschmiede Norikum.

Solo Andata
In The Lens

Solo Andata (the Aussie duo of Kane Ikin and Paul Fiocco) assembled this one, their third for 12k, by mixing newer recordings with a whole host of old materials recovered from hard drives, email threads and the like. They got thirteen discrete pieces out of this process, so there’s a lot to digest. Acoustic instruments, acoustics and electronics go in; various pleasant atmospheres come out.

Amplifier Machine
Her Mouth Is An Outlaw

Amplifier Machine’s indie rock tendencies seem to have completely disappeared on their latest album, Her Mouth Is An Outlaw. The three-piece of James Dixon, Seth Rees and Alex Jarvis, all solo artists in their own right, have made and album of atmospheric post-rock, seemingly at odds with their back catalogue. It seems they’ve done a pretty good job of it, though.

Benoît Pioulard
Sonnet

An intimate album of warm melodic droning. Benoit Pioulard started the process of making this album by recording unexpectedly musical tones from animal or mechanical sources (eg. extractor fans), and then transposing those sounds to his guitar. Released on almost-identically-priced vinyl and CD by the ever-loved Kranky label.

Ian Hawgood
Impermanence

Sir Ian Hawgood (he's not actually been knighted but maybe he should be for services to electronic ambient music) is back to tell us all about decay. Using reel to reel tape recorders and other ephemera he has here embraced tape hiss and other side effects of the recording process to bring us nine slowly unfurling electronic pieces to aurally soundtrack what is also happening to our bodies.

Snow Ghosts
A Quiet Ritual

Following the first phase of their career, which saw an incredible nine records in a little over three years, Snow Ghosts return with yet another studio album, A Quiet Ritual. Their entrancing and weighty blend of electronica and post-rock this time encompasses a number of unusual instruments, including an Iron Age horn excavated from a site in Scotland.

Stubbleman
Mountains and Plains

Stubbleman is the ego of Pascal Gabriel who has done literally everything in music including writing the Theme from S Express and worked with Dido, Kyle Minogue and Can amongst others. One thing he hasn't done is write an ambient album so this is what that is, using cinematic sounds and live piano to create a panoramic album inspired by a US road trip.

Francis M. Gri
Decays

From the music to the packaging, Decays by Francis M. Gri reflects decay in a number of ways. The music goes in cycles, building and falling, growing and decaying - beautiful sounds smothering less beautiful sounds and vice versa. The packaging shows moral decay in one version being way OTT, whilst another version is packaged to show physical decay. Only 50 copies of each on Time Released Sound.

David Allred
The Cell

David Allred is a Canadian songwriter that tackled themes of human fallibility and frailty on his first album, 'The Transition', and elucidates on this theme on sophomore record 'The Cell'. He has the same timbre of voice that John Martyn has, like a soft saxophone played in chocolate. If single 'Nature's Course' is anything to go by, 'The Cell' looks like a textured, beautiful, and, at times, grand album. I would also encourage you to watch the live version of 'Ahoy (1+1=X)' on YouTube, like a modern Arthur Russell; wow.

Noam
Overdramatic

Noam is a new project from a certain Kentaro Togawa, who you might know from Hopeless Marching Band or The Retail Sectors. Overdramatic features ten tracks of explorative sonics. This is a very affordable CD release: and you even get a postcard thrown in too! Courtesy of the Symbolic Interaction label.

Ex Confusion

Ex Confusion is Atsuhito Omori’s project devoted to hazy melancholy ambience, and sixth album I Remember When maintains the sound, style and quality of the project’s output to date. It’s a very particular sonic formular, but boy does it deliver. Includes a track in collaboration with Benoit Pioulard. On n5MD.

Aluben Noiro
Levitate State

Trying to reach that Levitate State but struggling? Aluben Noiro is here to help. On their debut album the producer seeks to create a sense of a calm and a controlled euphoria. The album shares an intensity and singularity of vision with Manuel Göttsching's E2-E4 and Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells. On Basement Jax's label Atlantic Jaxx.

JAWS
The Ceiling

Jaws are back with album number three, The Ceiling. The Birmingham dream pop band get lumped in with the Digbeth B-Town scene - a scene that supposedly revolves around The Twang, Swim Deep and Peace, although they deny existence of such a scene. The band are popular with Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. LP and CD on JAWS.

Galerie Stratique
Faux World

Quebecois ‘sound-hunter’ Galerie Stratique (Charles-Émile Beullac) initially released Faux World back in 2008. If this record reads like a fever-dream, that’s no coincidence - Faux World was inspired by a trip to Indonesia in which Beullac both immersed himself in new musical cultures and also fell rather ill. The tracks here are psychedelic sound-hazes that invoke Beullac’s mental state at the time. Think Four Tet and Jon Hassell. This new edition of Faux World has been slightly edited.

Abul Mogard
And We Are Passing Through Silently

Abul Mogard does great stuff with his synthesiser(s), and And We Are Passing Through Silently presents a particular corner of his practice: his elaborate reworkings (to call them ‘remixes’ doesn’t feel quite right) of other people’s tracks. Aisha Devi and Becoming Animal are two of those who get the Mogard treatment, and the results are lush. Out on Houndstooth.

The Cinematic Orchestra do not work with haste. To Believe is their first full, proper studio album since 2007’s Ma Fleur, and its title track (with gorgeous vocals from Moses Sumney) has been circulating as a single since 2016. But now, when they are good and ready, they present To Believe in full! Guests include Heidi Vogel and the great Roots Manuva, and this one promises to be another deep classic. On Ninja Tune.

Tomas Nordmark
Eternal Words

From Sweden, its Thomas Nordmark. Mr Nordmark is something of a minimalist, but he makes use of the full array of electronic sound sources and processing tools now available. Eternal Words feels very large to the listener, implying wide stretches of land with its sweeping synths and slowly-cycling patterns. Out on Valley Of Search.

For this, VA Compilation #5, they've tapped the likes of Slow Clinic, teto SHINDA, and (courtesy of Domino Records) Bill Ryder-Jones. Fourteen tracks of thoughtful and patient yearning.

WLDLFE is a lush but dark listen, with synths that have a beautiful but melancholy shine to them and evocative melodies. WLDLFE is released by Blackjack Illuminist Records.

Benjamin Finger
Into Light

Somber composer Benjamin Finger’s latest takes a turn for the darker. Into Light hosts four compositions, two of which are more than 15-minute affairs. The strings sound like Godspeed You! outtakes, set to minimal electronic backdrops, and the vocal loops create a dissociative bleakness. LIYL: pondering existence while staring out over grey buildings.
