Yair Elazar Glotman & Mats Erlandsson

A talented rotating cast of collaborators that includes Lucy Railton, Maria W Horn and Viktor Orri Arnarson helped composers Yair Elazar Glotman and Mats Erlandsson bring this latest work to life.

Sophie Hutchings
Scattered On The Wind

Scattered on the Wind is the seventh album by Australian modern classical composer / pianist Sophie Hutchings. She shows her effervescent personality via her piano-led compositions, fleshed out with strings. It is an album about taking risks and trusting that you will naturally make the right decision. On Mercury KX.

Carly Paradis
Nothing is Something

Carly Paradis is a world-renowned composer. Nothing is Something is her third album. It is an epic, powerful ride with strings that soar and lyrics languishing on subjects that need urgent attention such as the climate crisis. Her other work has seen her compose the score for dramatic BBC show Line of Duty and collaborate with Clint Mansell.

Bruno Sanfilippo
Piano Textures 5

Piano Textures is a series that Argentinian pianist Bruno Sanfilippo has been working on throughout his 20 year career. Here we have Piano Textures No. 5 which explores patterns in contemporary classical music, minimalism, the beauty of quietness and reflection. The Piano Textures series is the work most representative of Sanfilippo as an artist. As usual with his albums, we expect this to be very good.

Clarice Jensen
The experience of repetition as death

Cellist Clarice Jensen has already collaborated with the late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson amongst others on earlier work but for her second album goes it alone on a record which uses the cello and nothing else as a sound source. The album uses the instrument to create loops and electronica that veer far in the direction of more dance-orientated practitioners like Actress. Seems she's doing for the cello what Colin Stetson has done for the sax. 

Nils Frahm
All Encores

The incomparable Nils Frahm presents the third and final instalment in his Encores series of EPs, with all three of the compositions available as an 80-minute album titled All Encores. Conceived of as “musical islands” off of the mainland of 2018's album All Melody, the third part is more percussive and electronic than the previous EPs that focussed on piano and ambience. 

Hans-Joachim Roedelius & Arnold Kasar
Einfluss

The kosmische legend that is Hans-Joachim Roedelius (of Cluster and Harmonia) here collaborates with classical pianist Arnold Kasar. The resulting album Einfluss, released by the extremely ‘proper’ classical Deutsche Grammophon label, are a gorgeous waltz through lush piano melodies and shifting textures.

Alfa Mist
On My Ones

Sold out - sorry!

Gigi Masin & Charles Hayward
Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre Volume 2

Though best known for his work in This Heat and Camberwell Now, erstwhile sound explorer Charles Hayward has done plenty else in his time. For example, this 1989 split LP with Gigi Masin. The two musicians were tasked with devising music inspired by their local rivers, which led Masin into beautiful looping melodic ambience and Hayward into a sinister side-long drift piece. First time on vinyl for this rare release, out on Modern Classics.

Niklas Paschburg
Svalbard

German composer Niklas Paschburg took himself off to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard to write his second album of the same name. The album has a mournful tone which is down to the location. The effects of climate change are on his mind and are visible in the changing landscape there. He composed on piano, accordion and electric harmonium. The songs were finished with the help of Andy Barlow from Lamb in Brighton.

Erland Cooper
Hether Blether

Scottish multi-instrumentalist Gawain Erland Cooper releases the third instalment in a trilogy of LPs which are thematically informed by the geography and history of the Orkney Islands, where he grew up. Hether Blether takes the landscape of the islands as its inspiration, conjuring up a atmospheric mixture of words, imagery and sound.

Morton Feldman - For John Cage

Sold out - sorry!

Ludovico Einaudi
Seven Days Walking - Day Seven

The final instalment of Italian minimalist composer Ludovico Einaudi’s Seven Days Walking album project, released in seven parts and each focussing on a separate day. ...Day 7 is now released on white vinyl, bearing a sense of spontaneity and authenticity, reflecting its recording process in a small, cut-off hut in the middle of the Alps. 

Julia Kent
Asperities

New York based cellist Julia Kent came into view from performing with Rasputina and Antony & The Johnsons, and her performance credits are impressive as well, including Swans, Library Tapes, and Aiden Baker. Asperities is her fourth studio album, recorded and produced entirely by herself. Layering string work and electronics with a palpable emotional core, place this next to your Max Richter and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Limited vinyl and CD on The Leaf Label.

The Fantasy Orchestra
The Bear... and Other Stories

Beginning with the weaving jazz-infused melodies of 'Flow', The Fantasy Orchestra's debut offering is a sprawling collaboration of no less than 160 creative's energy. 'The Bear and Other Stories' is a fantastic slab of DIY ingenuity, a community project full of covers, homages and a wealth of personality.

Visionary Hours
Coalescence of Form

Hayden Berry is a musician from out Hebden Bridge way and you may know him as head honcho of the Preserved Sound imprint. Visionary Hours is his musical project which uses all manner of organic instruments to create lovely bucolic pieces that sit somewhere between rural folk and neo-classical. Coalescence of Form comes out on the Hidden Vibes imprint in a very limited edition of 100,

Erik Satie
Vexations

Remember when the National performed 'Sorrow' for 9 hours straight? They must have got the idea from the 19th century's Erik Satie whose composition 'Vexations' is three intriguing lines of a piano melody repeated 840 times. Unfortunately that would require a metric tonne of vinyl so here Alan Marks does it a mere 40.

Edmund Finnis
Brother

A hushed, beautiful duet for the violin and viola, ‘Brother’ is written by composer Edmund Finnis and performed by the LCO’s Galya Bisengalieva and Robert Ames. Spread over four sections, the composition’s cinematic qualities have already been picked up on by Icelandic director Hlynur Palmas, who has used excerpts of ‘Brother’ on his upcoming film A White, White Day.

Emika
Klavirni Temna

Emika (aka Ema Jolly) has steadily made a name for herself over the past decade, with her trip-hop infused electronica. However on 'Klavirini Temna' (meaning 'dark piano' in Czech), Emika keeps things pure and stripped-back with a cluster of heartwarming piano-driven songs - juxtaposing both dark and light themes.

Emika
Dilo Variations

Czech pioneer Emika (aka Ema Jolly) is making a name for herself in the game of leftfield neo-classical electronica. Currently residing in Berlin, the producer prepares to release 'Dilo Variations' - a piece darker in colour than anything before, but with that same elegance Emika applies to everything she does.

Emika
Klavirni

Beginning with the gentle and flickering piano riffs of 'Dilo 4', Emika (aka Ema Jolly) presents yet another soul-soothing collection of hazy and piano-driven tracks in 'Klavirni'. As an improvisation-based piece, the pioneer's sheer creativity and imagination is fully exposed for all to enjoy - it's transcending stuff.

Robert Turman

Sold out - sorry!

Anne Müller
Heliopause

Anne Müller is a composer and cellist based in Berlin. 'Heliopause' is her debut album which she wrote, recorded, performed and produced.  She is no stranger to recording music, particularly with Erased Tapes. She is most known for her collaboration with Nils Frahm on 7Fingers and was credited on his 'All Melody' album. Other credits include 'Boysen’s Spells' by Ben Lukas and 'Fallen Trees' by Lubomyr Melnyk.

London Music Works and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Music from the Batman Trilogy

A treat for fans of the Christopher Nolan Batman films here, or specifically the music of said films. Nolan used two of the best movie score composers around in Hans Zimmer and James Newton-Howard to score his take on Batman. 'Music From The Batman Trilogy' performed by London Music Works and The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra gathers together the two composers' best work from each of the three films.

Robert Haigh
Black Sarabande

Well this looks like an absolute treat. 'Black Sarabande' is a collection of piano pieces written and performed by Robert Haigh. The compositions are sparse and skeletal, bolstered only by the occasional synth pad or, in one case, the 'dissonant sounds of industry' (yum, yes please). Haigh's pieces are rooted in a sense of place, namely the pit town where he grew up. They conjur images of something deathly quiet, eerie, and desolate. This man is a total legend, with records dating back to 1984 where he appeared on his own Le Rey Records label and later on Nurse With Wounds United Dairies imprint. He then went on to produce innovative Drum & Bass as the one and only Omni Trio!

Ucc Harlo
United

UCC Harlo (aka Annie Garlid, a collaborator of Holly Herndon) makes her debut with an album six years in the making, representing a journey from classically-trained orchestral violinist to experimental producer. United features classical baroque styles filtered and re-focused, amongst synth drones, field recordings and much else besides, forming a fascinating and detailed whole. On Subtext.

Another release on Jonny Greenwood’s classical label, Octatonic. This time it’s the turn of violinist Daniel Pioro playing J.S.Bach’s Partitia No.2 In D Minor. As well as the music you get a booklet which includes J.S. Bach’s original score and an essay written on the piece by Daniel Pioro himself.

Jaz Coleman
Magna Invocatio - A Gnostic Mass for Choir and Orchestra Inspired by the Sublime Music of Killing Joke

Jaz Coleman, front man of post punk band Killing Joke has always had a thing for classical music, despite his more obvious experimental rock leanings. He has always thought that the songs of Killing Joke have an untapped widescreen gorgeousness that orchestral sounds can bring to music. Magna Invocatio - A Gnostic Mass for Choir and Orchestra Inspired by the Sublime Music of Killing Joke was recorded with St Petersburg Philharmonic. With this project Coleman has sought to accentuate the beauty and melody of Killing Joke songs.

Robin Richards
Castel EP

Robin Richards, key composer and bassist of Manchester alt-poppers Dutch Uncles, aims to make a name for himself with debut solo EP 'Castel'. And its contents signal he will, as the 6-track pursues political explorations - delving deeply into Soviet Oppression. It does so with fluttering pianos and ambient soundscapes, with an intricacy Dutch Uncles fans will come to expect.

Yann Tiersen
Portrait

Yann Tiersen is a French composer and musician. He is perhaps best known for his soundtrack to the film, Amélie. His new album, Portrait, contains 25 reworked tracks from his career so far. The album also includes collaborations with John Grant, Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals, Blonde Redhead and Stephen O’Malley from Sunn O))). The vinyl versions come with a bonus 7” single including two exclusive tracks.

Jean-Michel Blais
Matthias & Maxime

Matthias & Maxime is a film directed by Xavier Dolan about two friends who are cast in intimate roles opposite each other in a short film. The feelings this awakens tests everything about their relationship and themselves. The soundtrack was written by French-Candian composer Jean-Michel Blais. Blais takes his inspiration from famous classical piano works (Chopin etc) along with lesser known or more leftfield composers from Steve Reich to Chilly Gonzales.

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.

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.

Max Richter
Ad Astra (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The soundtrack to recent widescreen blockbuster Ad Astra, from legendary composer Max Richter. Although Brad Pitt’s astronaut journeys into outer space to find the truth about a doomed expedition manned by his father, it’s also about an inner journey of discovery - something that Richter amplifies incredibly well. 

Watine
Géometries sous-cutanées (Subcutaneous Layers)

Apparently hailing from Paris, Watine hold forth their tantalisingly-titled new album Geometries sous-cutanees, or Subcutaneous Layers. The Watine house style is a sort of highly-atmospheric melancholy instrumental folk, but with plenty of electronic treatments and layers, as well as unidentified sounds creeping around the edges of the mix. Rather engaging stuff. Double LP on Catgang.

Memory Drawings
Phantom Lights

Phantom Lights is further proof of Memory Drawings ability to mutate their dulcimer, violin and guitar sound into exciting new shapes. This time drummer Chris Cole (Movietone/Manyfingers) is added to the line up as the band explore post-rock and neo-classical. Features members of Hood and Brave Timbers and comes with a remix from Bristol electronica ace Barnaby Carter. We had this in stock in very, very limited quantities a while back as a tiny run tour CD but now the good people at Sound in Silence have issued it in greater numbers.

Dustin O'Halloran
Sundoor

Icelandic/American musician Dustin O’Halloran presents his first release for Deutsche Grammophon, a 12” vinyl EP Sundoor containing a single 20-minute piece split over both sides of the record. Titled ‘196 Hz’, it’s adapted from a piece O’Halloran composed for fellow artist Slater Bradley’s installation at the Venice Biennale two years ago. 

Shida Shahabi
Shifts

Whilst this is Shida Shahabi's debut release, the Swedish-Iranian began studying and writing music on piano at the tender age of nine. 'Shifts' is informed by a sprawling collection of influences, ranging from The Cure to Mozart and Gilles Peterson to Nils Frahm. But the piece is a cohesive body of stunning piano-driven melody, which knows exactly what it is.

Lubomyr Melnyk
Continuous Music: Selected Works

A book of sheet music courtesy of the Erased Tapes label, and one which attempts to render the technique of pianist and continuous music pioneer Lubomyr Melnyk into something approaching accessibility for everyone else. Continuous Music: Selected Works presents excerpts from Corollaries (2013), Evertina (2014) and Rivers and Streams (2015) in bizarre-looking sheet music, but Melnyk himself encourages people to attempt their own takes on his works.

Penguin Cafe
Handfuls of Night

A continuation project of his father’s Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Arthur Jeffes returns with his fourth Penguin Cafe album Handfuls of Night. Inspired by Scott’s voyage to the Antarctic, the nine-track experience is bookended by beautiful instrumentals and takes in minimalist, cinematic pieces and uplifting, almost cathartic peaks.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Virðulegu forsetar

Don’t be fooled by the fact that ‘Virðulegu Forsetar’, which translates as ‘Honorable Presidents’ for those who’ve forgotten their GCSE Icelandic, is listed as being in four parts - the division of this hour-long work into quarters is purely for technical reasons. Taken as a whole this is beatific and gorgeous stuff from the late Jóhann Jóhannsson, a droning brass-led ambience that combines Steve Reich’s phasing techniques with the cerebral bliss of Arvo Pärt.

Francesco Tristano
Tokyo Stories

Tokyo Stories by Francesco Trisano is a piano/synth/electronic love letter to the Japanese city. Each of the 15 tracks encapsulates his different experiences in the city. Japanese musicians U-zhaan, Keiichiro Shibuya and Hiroshi Watanabe contributed to the album with Argentine electronic artist Guti and French musical legend Michel Portal also making guest appearances.

Bruno Bavota
Get Lost

The prophecy is true - Italian composer Bruno Bavota has made another LP of contemporary classical compositions. Get Lost ticks all the usual boxes - Waifish piano? Yep. Gently-undulating strings? Sure. Chest-swelling chord progressions? Very much so. Olafur Arnalds would be proud. Something from Get Lost is sure to be soundtracking a climactic scene in a romcom very soon.

James McVinnie / Tom Jenkinson
All Night Chroma

Composed by Tom Jenkinson of Squarepusher fame and performed by renowned organist James McVinnie, All Night Chroma came about after a commission from No-Nation with PRSF for Music. The songs debuted as ‘The Secret Life of Organs’ in 2016 with a short live run, and the material has now been re-arranged for a studio release on Warp Records. 

Ludovico Einaudi
Le Onde

Le Onde is the fourth album by Italian pianist and composer Ludivico Einaudi. It is inspired by the Virginia Wolfe novel, The Waves, which is precisely what the title translates to. Einaudi’s music has been sampled by Professor Green, remixed by Mogwai and used as walk on music by Nicki Minaj. Godfather of punk, Iggy Pop, counts himself among his fans. 

Ludovico Einaudi
I Giorni

I Giorni is the sixth album, originally released in 2002, by Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi. The title translates as 'The Days'. The title track has been used on TV adverts and to soundtrack TV programmes, as well as receiving Radio 1 airplay. This helped the track to break into the Top 40.

Max Richter
Voyager - Essential Max Richter

Voyager - Essential Max Richter is a career-spanning retrospective by the German-born composer. Not only is this the essential stuff from Richter’s impressive career so far, but it’s pretty essential for any record collection too. It includes excerpts from his reworking of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons along with scores from TV and film soundtracks such as The Leftovers, The Blue Notebooks and Mary Queen of Scots. A good place to start discovering Max Richter.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen
Iris

A Winged Victory For The Sullen, the top-tier collaboration of Adam Wiltzie (Stars Of The Lid) and Dustin O’Halloran, continue to make deeply inspiring music together. In this case, they have made music to soundtrack Jalil Lespert’s film Iris, deploying electronics and a large string orchestra to realise their grand visions. CD and vinyl (black or clear) editions on Erased Tapes.

John Ghost
Airships Are Organisms

Are they? Are they now. I thought they were flaming death traps. Anyway John Ghost is a collective not a man and come from the Belgian town of Ghent. They make exploratory jazz-influenced stuff that takes on board influences from minimal music and neo-classical. All the way through this description I've been thinking about the band Jaga Jazzist and there it is in the press release... they are comparable to Jaga Jazzist.  

John Williams & Anne-Sophie Mutter
Across The Stars

Royalty of film soundtracks John Williams joins forces with esteemed German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter in this brand spanking new arrangement of 'Across The Stars'. The double LP features a plethora of goosebump-raising sounds, from such iconic blockbusters as 'Star Wars: Return of The Jedi' and 'Harry Potter and The Philospher's Stone'.

Toby Wiltshire
Surfacing

Lovely set of widescreen ambiences - some sad, some happy - from Leeds-based composer Toby Wiltshire here. Surfacing lilts along very nicely indeed, the synthetic textures bobbing like buoys in a bay at dusk. Some of the sounds here might be the heavily-manipulated tones of Wiltshire’s beloved saxophone, though we’re not sure on that one. Try Loscil for a related artist.

Manu Delgado
Circadian

Arriving quickly after his short-film and soundtrack project Parasol Peak, Canadian composer Manu Delgado returns with another regular studio project. Circadian focuses on the human sleep cycle and was inspired by Delgado’s experiences on exhaustive global tours, rendered by his trusty handpan. 

Wayne McGregor
Collaboration

Choreographer Wayne McGregor has commissioned new material from plenty of big musicians down the years - Jlin, Jon Hopkins and Ben Frost are just three of the artists who’ve made work for McGregor. On Collaboration we see McGregor sifting through a quarter-century of music to showcase some of his personal favourites. There are a few new recordings among the tracklist too.

Frank Zappa
Orchestral Favorites (40th Anniversary)

Appearing during a period of upheaval between Frank Zappa and his label Warner, Orchestral Favourites was an album of instrumentals recorded with the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra and released without his permission in 1979. Now, the often-overlooked record gets a deluxe overhaul and expansion for its 40th anniversary worthy of Zappa’s original vision.

Gabríel Ólafs
Absent Minded

Discovered on a televised Icelandic talent show at the age of just 19, composer and pianist Gabríel Ólafs was snapped up by One Little Indian. Later this month, he releases his first studio album Absent Minded, which the musician himself describes as “a score to a non-existent film”. 

Ian Hawgood
Love Retained

Incredibly bare piano pieces, presented with thanks, love and admiration for those around him. Battling with depression for decades Ian Hawgood found a release, but also a trigger in composing, these unfinished and unmastered piano sketches serve up as a mirror to that fragility, and mark his departure from his own label (Home Normal) and possibly music itself.

Giulio Fagiolini

Leo Svirsky
River Without Banks

Leo Svirsky is a contemporary classical composer of rare deftness. His pieces spool out like running water, and as such it’s apt that his new LP should be entitled River Without Banks. Arranged for two pianos and various accompanying instruments, Svirsky’s music is tranquil, stirring and extremely lovely. Gas, Peter Zummo and Michael Nyman all come to mind when listening to River Without Banks.

Ocean Floor
Mirror

Mirror by Ocean Floor was originally released on cassette in 2018 and quickly sold out. It will now enjoy a limited vinyl pressing. A series of stripped back tracks for piano and synthesizer. They were initially sketched out following a bad night’s sleep in 2014. They were gradually formed into melodic tunes and the inclusion of a little guitar on one track.
