Nils Frahm
Felt

The Nilster is back with a brand new studio new album on Erased Tapes and it's the difficult 3rd album! From the off I can tell it's a much richer album than previous albums as there's more than just piano on it. The opener with its Tubular Bellsy xylophone is really rather splendid. There's a...view item »


Christina Vantzou
No. 2

As our resident drift-core/neo-classical/everythings-ok-electronica expert is in hospital with a malfunctioning gall stone, I have been passed this weeks slower releases to pore over. Forgive me though as I have the attention span of a gnat, I couldn’t even sit through the entire Bruno Mars performance on t...view item »


Goldmund
Sometimes

Goldmund, aka Keith Kenniff has apparently had great success squeezing his music into films and adverts and such, which makes sense in some ways: he writes very elegant, dramatic piano music. But also, most of Sometimes is just as dark as the sleeve art suggests: I can’t imagine many of these trac...view item »


Eluvium
False Readings On

Oh go on, get excited about a new Eluvium record. It's been a while since Matthew Cooper framed his ambient-leaning post-rock in such a compelling light -- in fact False Readings On seems to intertwine his pastoral, widescreen sound with a harsher resolution, with the orchestration battling...view item »

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 N...view item »

π∆ππ
Selected Piano Works

On his Selected Piano Works, π∆ππ treats us to that vintage three-days-in-a-Berlin-bunker vibe. By using just as much piano as silence between notes, π∆ππ has created a mesmerizing and esoteric album. What’s also esoteric about this release is the fact that there’s only 50 ...view item »


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...view item »

Tired Tape Machine
Not Here

Petter Lindhaden's self-professed mid-life crisis album was conceived (as all good mid-life crisis albums should be) whilst holed up alone in a remote woodland cabin in Sweden.

Dead Light

Who doesn't think about escaping from the city from time to time?

Jazz, electronica, post-rock, electro-acoustic improvisation and more besides all surface in the heady brew of Stateless. The vinyl edition of the album comes with an additional download of...view item »


Peter Broderick
Partners

Slightly worrying to see Peter Broderick described as a veteran but here he is 10 years into an idiosyncratic recording career. This latest missive deals with the certainty of chance, Broderick has been influenced by John Cage in terms of letting a song take its own course and letting things happen of their own ...view item »

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son

This most recent release falls into the latter camp, bein...view item »


Laura Cannell
Simultaneous Flight Movement

Laura Cannell is chiefly a violin player who has a dark swooping style that sounds like dark birds flying over a desolate beach. Indeed this album was recorded Southwold Lighthouse in Suffolk and consists of semi improvised pieces that veer from minimal chamber music to full on orchestral string-scapes.  ...view item »


Various
Summer

The Bigo & Twigetti label invited their artists to give them something on the simple theme of Summer, and here are the results.

Ben Chatwin
Heat & Entropy

Strings form the underlying core of this album: rubbed, bowed, strummed, prepared, and attached to a wide array of instruments from pianos to quasi-pianos to guitars to mandolins. Lovely strings! And some electronics too. Ben Chatwin has done a great job harnessing these many textures in service of the curious melodies of He...view item »


Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra
Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra

Kate Simko has produced strong work in both the electronic and the composed-classical worlds: this full-length collaboration with the London Electronic Orchestra combines both. The risk with this kind of thing is that one element can feel tacked on to the other, but n...view item »

Max Richter
Perfect Sense (Original Film Soundtrack)

Richter has been getting his toes right under that soundtrack table of late and rightly so, his music is a perfect fix for any tear drenched movie experience.

Max Richter
The Last Days On Mars - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Max Richter has always captured a certain haunting and melancholy place in our hearts.

Ben Lukas Boysen
Gravity

“Oh man, he’s the new Nils Frahm” seems to be Norman Reviews editor Clint’s catchphrase, these days. A new Frahm is born unto us every day and a new pianist is using the Frahmian mode every other week. Claudio Ranieri? He’s like the Premier League’s Nils Frahm, buddy. Plinky pl...view item »

Lubomyr Melnyk
Illirion

Erik Satie
Erik Satie & Friends

Celebrating his 150th birthday (dude is getting on) this marvellously expansive collection brings together all the best known work from the legendary piano man from France, though as I read on the press blurb he was actually half Scottish.

Richard J. Birkin

Ryan Vail
For Every Silence

The first full-length solo album from Ryan Vail rather interestingly pitches itself as the story of a certain piano, one built in 1927 and passed down through the family. That piano is centre-stage in many of the compositions (although lots of groovy electronics also take prominence), but also the emotional core of the lyrics, s...view item »

Matt Dunkley has more than paid his dues as an orchestrator and a conductor, working with most of the big-deal orchestras around and a number of big films (Inception, The Dark Knight…).

Rachel Grimes
Book of Leaves (For Solo Piano)

I love a bit of Rachels, me. Funny how Rachel Grimes is in them and they're not named after her though.. Would you bloody credit it.

Masayoshi Fujita
Apologues

Masayoshi Fujita is probably one of the premier contemporary vibraphone players, and with Apologues he steps away from his more electronically-abstracted music under his alias el fog.

Dmitry Evgrafov
Collage

Dmitry Evragof joins the currently quite rich scene of young neo-classical piano-based composers with Collage.
