Nils Frahm
Spaces

Nils Frahm executes beautifully moving piano based compositions with marked ease, though the live experience is somewhat informed by the environment. This reissued collection of tracks presents the perceived value Frahm bestows upon these, celebrating his collaboration with chance, space and philosophies of the present.

Ilya Beshevli
Night Forest

Siberian pianist and composer Ilya Beshevli has a simply gorgeous ear for a melancholy melody, and his debut album Night Forest is full of sweeping neoclassical compositions of shimmering emotional power. Reissued on Village Green on CD and LP: the album’s first appearance on vinyl. Plus a download code for a label sampler!

Jason Sharp
A Boat Upon Its Blood

Constellation's fall batch includes a new signing in Jason Sharp, whose music feels both quintessentially out-Montreal and also incredibly fresh: a saxophonist and sound artist, his music absorbs drone, techno and musique concrete, weaving together instrumental anthologies that cross all three paths. There are horrendous noise blasts, gorgeous pieces a la a Godspeed ballad and plenty more. A short but extremely vast record, is A Boat Upon Its Blood.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son

Ryuichi Sakamoto should be familiar to fans of several different strands of sound, having done crucial work as part of Yellow Magic Orchestra, some explorative collaborations with Fennesz, and many years of sensitive film soundtrack work. This most recent release falls into the latter camp, being the accompaniment to Yoji Yamada’s Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son. Lush and fully orchestrated. Released by Milan.

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.  

Scott Walker
The Childhood of a Leader - Original Soundtrack

Wow! Brand new Scott Walker! The avant-crooner legend has been enlisted to create a full-blown orchestral score to Brady Corbet’s The Childhood of a Leader, a Satre adaptation set in 1919. There’s plenty of the dissonance of late-period Walker at play here, a perfect fit with the tense psychology of the film. On 4AD.

Ian William Craig
Centres

Ever-prolific tape chemist Ian William Craig is readying yet another record of gorgeous crackle pop. Having broken our hearts with the fragmented opera loops of A Turn of Breath in 2014, he's since released the understated but equally beautiful Cradle For The Wanting for Recital, which consisted of nothing but his vocal run through reel to reels. From there he put out the noisy piano excursions of Zugzwang for Fostex with Patient Sounds and now he returns with Centres, his first record for FatCat's classical imprint 130701. He's one of our favourite artists and this record's early single suggests more accessible and narratively linear songwriting -- and even some percussion. Yes come on.

Various
Summer

The Bigo & Twigetti label invited their artists to give them something on the simple theme of Summer, and here are the results. The sequencing of this 8 track compilation takes the listener from the unadorned acoustic instruments of artists like Aisha Orazbayeva and her violin to Antonymes’ electronics. Only 50 copies of this CD in circulation!

Steve Jansen
Tender Extinction

Steve Jansen was of course the drummer in Japan but since then he has recorded with such luminaries as Ryuichi Sakamoto & Bernd Friedmann. This is his second solo album and blends songs and instrumental passages and features his delicate orchestral synth compositions and his characteristic drum patterns. 

Marihiko Hara & Polar M
Beyond


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 Heat & Entropy. It’s out on Ba Da Bing.

Eleven into Fifteen: a 130701 Compilation

130701, a spin-off label from FatCat Records with a focus on post-classical music, celebrates their fifteenth anniversary this year, and are doing so in style with Eleven into Fifteen, a star-studded compilation. Artists represented here include Ian William Craig, Hauschka and Max Richter: what a high-quality label eh?

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 no such problem here: this album is a fully-formed suite of lush strings, shimmering samples and skipping rhythms. Includes a cover of an xx tune and a collaboration with Katy B.

Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler
Le Revelateur

Harp hero Mary Lattimore and regular collaborator Jeff Zeigler produced this music to accompany a 1968 silent film, Le Révélateur. Zeigler’s guitars and synths twirl themselves around Lattimore’s gorgeous, delay-tinged harp flurries, and the results make an excellent stand-alone album. I’d love to hear it alongside the film. LP on Thrill Jockey.

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. This is a release of the 2011 science fiction drama which starred none other than Ewan McGregor. Expect heartbroken pianos and cellos weeping.

Olafur Arnalds
Late Night Tales

Sensitive neo-classical pianist and composer Olafur Arnalds welcomes the listener into his musical taste with this latest edition of the Late Night Tales series. His mix combines plenty of different styles, and includes exclusive tracks from Arnór Dan, Arnalds himself, and actor David Tennant! Both CD and vinyl versions are mixed, but come with download codes for the unmixed original tracks.

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. Most of Max's music is released on Deutsche Grammophon, the oldest record label in the world, and not without reason. His music sounds like it's been unearthed from a time capsule buried by a lonely composer from the first half of this century. And just like those phenomenal solo albums, the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to 2013’s The Last Days on Mars is filled with beautiful and sparse modern classical tracks.

Fiona Brice
Postcards From

You’ve probably heard Fiona Brice’s violin, piano, composition or arrangement skills on some of your favourite artist’s recordings: Beyonce, Midlake, Jarvis Cocker all qualify, although BBC News doesn’t (it's Brice, not Bruce, ok?). Postcards From is her solo debut, and it is a gorgeously rich listen. Out on Bella Union.
  • Genre(s):

Ilya Beshevli
Wanderer

Piano-led neo-classical music from composer and pianist Ilya Beshevli, a resident of Moscow. Sometimes solo, sometimes supported by lush orchestration, Wanderer’s pieces are grand and cinematic. Available as a CD or on vinyl, with both formats also including a download code for a label sampler. On Village Green.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Antonymes
(For Now We See) Through A Glass Dimly

As Antonymes Ian M. Hazeldine has developed a sound that mixes neoclassical flourishes and the almost imperceptible pulse of ambient music. On (For Now We See) Through A Glass Dimly the artist plays piano and electronics and then gradually incorporates string arrangements from James Banbury, creating a sound that is delicate and often joyous in its gradual development.

Pedro Soler + Gaspar Claus
Al Viento

Pedro Soler and Gaspar Claus (a father and son pairing, don’t ya know) recorded Al Viento, their second album together, in Iceland and Spain, with assistance from Valgeir Sigurössen and Matt Elliott. Cello and flamenco guitar dance gracefully around one another for a very atmospheric set. Al Viento is out on InFine.

William Ryan Fritch
New Words For Old Wounds

The limited edition of 250 physical copies come housed in a 7.5" x 5.5" panoramic gatefold case made of heavy stock. The editions were printed on an antique Heidelberg press by the world renowned Stumptown Printers based in Oregon. The artwork features a series of incredibly detailed ink paintings from Sail (uselessarm). Each edition comes with a glass mastered matte finished CD, and a double sided lyric insert, and digital download code, offering a choice of formats including 320MP3, FLAC, 24bit WAV, etc.)

Peter Broderick
Docile

Docile is a sweet and simple collection of solo piano pieces, charmingly minimal and melodic. Peter Broderick apparently recorded the whole set in one evening, and the immediacy and clarity of the moment has carried through into the recordings. First released in 2008, Docile is now reissued by Hush Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Rachel Grimes
The Clearing

Rachel Grimes, formerly the leader of Rachel’s (funnily enough), hasn’t released a solo album for six years, so The Clearing is a significant release. Working with the likes of Helen Money and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, the album moves through stately and deep neo-classical territory, Grimes’ piano leading the way throughout.

Richard J. Birkin
Songs For Spoken Words EP

Designed to be consumed as a companion piece to poetry (available to read from an app at songsforspokenwords.com), Songs For Spoken Words by Richard J. Birkin features six instrumental works for guitar, string quartet and electronics. Limited to 250. Out on One-sided cream coloured vinyl 12" from Time Travel Opps.

Colin Stetson
presents: SORROW - A Reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony

A remarkable release here: saxophone titan Colin Stetson has arranged Henryk Gorecki’s much loved 3rd Symphony (one of the best-selling classical works ever) for an ensemble of electronics, guitars and woodwinds that includes members of Liturgy and Arcade Fire. It is a fascinating new spin on the piece: nice on Stetson. On 52Hz.

Piano Interrupted
Landscapes Of The Unfinished

The duo who comprise Piano Interrupted gathered some of the materials for this LP in West Africa: field recordings and the sounds of lively African musicians surface repeatedly throughout Landscapes Of The Unfinished, making a very interesting counterpoint to the piano, clarinet and double bass. On Denovali.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Matthew Collings
A Requiem For Edward Snowden

This album version of A Requiem For Edward Snowden is derived from a live audio-visual piece that has been performed in a number of arty venues around the world. Matthew Collings has composed a mighty mixture of haunting acoustic instrument parts and all sorts of creeping electronics. And the visual side of the work is available via accompanying download too! On Denovali.

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. Within you'll hear all the prototypes for the minimalism we enjoy today as well as music he recorded for adverts, ballets and pretty much everything.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Immix Ensemble & Vessel
Transition

Transition is a very interesting record, combining the talents of Vessel (part of Bristol’s Young Echo collective) with Daniel Thorne’s contemporary Immix Ensemble. Vessel’s electronics creep around the edges of the clarinets, strings etc. of the Ensemble, in a set of carefully worked-out, dynamic compositions. A highly original LP. On Erased Tapes.

Matt Dunkley
Cycles EP

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: now he’s turning his attentions to original creations. The Cycles EP takes one piece from his recent debut, and bolsters it with remixes from Nigel Wiesehan and Clint Mansell.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Sean Mccaul
Midnight at The Purple Palace

Sean McCaul is one of the premier vibraphone players working today, and this new set, which also features the skills of Dave Johnsen, Phil Kester and Jordan Shapiro, shows off his jazz talents. Midnight At The Purple Palace also features, in addition to several McCaul originals, a solo arrangement of a Chopin ‘Etude’. On Underwater Peoples.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Qluster
Tasten

Three pianists playing at the same time: Can any good come from such megalomania? Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Onnen Bock, and Armin Metz, known together as Qluster, are out to prove that yes, indeed, something great can happen. The trio’s album Taster shows exactly what three pianos can do for minimalist modern classical music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Richard J. Birkin
Vigils

Richard J. Birkin has put together a very subtle collection here on Vigils, with many of the pieces containing nothing more than stately piano and wispy strings, the latter provided by Iskra Strings, who you may have heard with Radiohead or Johann Johannsson. A hushed record, full of melancholy wonder and quiet drama. On Reveal.

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, some of which are written from the piano’s perspective. For Every Silence is out on Quiet Arch / Believe Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Kenneth James Gibson
The Evening Falls

Kenneth James Gibson must be a busy man, running the Adjunct Audio while also performing in a number of projects, from [a]pendics.shuffle to his Bell Gardens duo with Brian McBride of Stars Of The Lid. This solo joint is a full ambient stretch, slow and beatless and easy to get lost in. The Evening falls is on Kompakt.

Max Richter / Daniel Hope
Berlin by Overnight

Violinist Daniel Hope released his newest record, 'Spheres', in 2013; he is soon to be joined by neo-classical icon Max Richter for a live interpretation of this work at the Royal Albert Hall, and Deutsche Grammophon are marking the occasion with this EP of remixes. The twilight vibe of 'Spheres' is captured on 'Berlin by Overnight' with reworks from the artists Lorna Dune, Tom Adams, Efdemin and CFC.

Sarah Neufeld
The Ridge

Fresh from her stunning, album-of-the-year-from-Norman-Records-award-winning collaboration with Colin Stetson (who also guests here), Arcade Fire member Sarah Neufeld puts out her second solo record. The Ridge takes her violin to higher planes of hypnotic, dramatic melodicism. Also features Tim Hecker! On SN Music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Ocoeur
Reversed

Franck Zaragoza steps out under his Ocoeur moniker for a fourth full-length exploration of the melancholy possibilities of solo piano compositions. I say solo piano: some delicate string arrangements also curl themselves around the edges of Reversed. Released by n5MD on both CD and grey / white vinyl formats.

Matt Dunkley
Six Cycles

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…). But Six Cycles is his first record as an artist in his own right, in which he displays a grand creative talent. Released by Village Green.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Bersarin Quartett
III

Massive draws here for fans of Deaf Center, or A Winged Victory for the Sullen, and even add in a bit of Bohren und der Club of Gore for good measure. Melancholia fully explored in these releases, and slowed to an unbearable halt. Layers of strings, synths and distorted swells. Thomas Bücker’ Bersarin Quartett’s third release in this series.

Astrid Williamson
Requiem & Gallipoli

The One Little Indian label continue their great form with Astrid Williamson’s vinyl LP and CD of powerful neo-classical music. Requiem & Gallipoli blends solo piano, Williamson’s precise voice and varied orchestral accompaniment into her first longform classical composition. This is sad and rich chamber music.

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. Here, the instrument sounds more like itself, the accompaniments from clarinet and strings adding up to some beautiful compositions.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Dmitry Evgrafov
Collage

Dmitry Evragof joins the currently quite rich scene of young neo-classical piano-based composers with Collage. This record is pleasing on the ear, with Evragof using his compositional talents to build up sweeping orchestral movements around his stately piano. A grand record indeed, on FatCat sub-label 130701.

The Art of Remix

Nonclassical imposes its strict remix policy -- you can only remix with sounds that already exists in the track -- on a roster of famous electronic artists, from Hot Chip having a go at the music of Gabriel Prokofiev to Thom Yorke using his DJ skills to do things with 'Cortical Songs'. This record takes revered classical pieces and contextualises them in a completely different fashion, hoping to make the genre a little more club-friendly. 

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch
Like Water Through The Sand

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a French composer who is making her debut release with this record. Like Water Through The Sand is a weighty collection of pieces that usually place the composer’s piano at the forefront, though she also uses electronic treatments and sharp string arrangements to augment the sound. On FatCat imprint 130701.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Olafur Arnalds & Alice Sara Ott
The Chopin Project

Olafur Arnalds is already a legend incarnate at age 28, renowned for his modern classical compositions. The Chopin Project sees him teaming up with Alice Sara Ott, part the cream of the crop of contemporary pianists. Taking apart and reconstructing Chopin’s compositions, and mixing them with modern classical arrangements as well as synthesizers, the two have successfully reinterpreted and reinvigorated everybody’s favorite Polish composer.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

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 Art Of Remix EP #1

The Art Of Remix challenges electronic producers to make new dancing gold out of classical music, with the extra twist that they have to use only the original source material. Stepping up to the likes of Prokokiev we have heavy hitters like Thom Yorke and DJ Yoda. This first EP of the project is well worth hearing. From Nonclassical.

Iskra String Quartet
ISKRA

The Iskra String Quartet are more or less the indie-classical string quartet de jour, having worked with Radiohead, The xx, Steve Reich… Busy. ISKRA compiles a brace of pieces by different contemporary composers (including Johann Johannsson, and Olafur Arnalds), executed with grace and style by the group. On 1631 Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Neo-classical / Classical / Orchestral

Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood & Rajasthan Express
Junun

Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, Tunun, impressionistically documents the recording sessions that led to this album. Jonny Greenwood, with his Radiohead pedigree, will attract the most attention, but it is qawwali group Rajasthan Express and composer Shye Ben Tzur who are the real centre of this collection. Fantastic devotional performances, highly recommended. On Nonesuch.

Esmerine
Lost Voices

Esmerine have been producing high quality chamber rock for several years now, and Lost Voices finds them in more of a ‘rock’ mood than ever before. The delicate precision of the arrangements is still there of course, as you would expect from a group that includes members of godspeed you! black emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion. On Montreal’s Constellations, of course.

Mario Diaz de Leon
The Soul Is The Arena

Whoah! Mario Diaz De Leon has made a frankly insane record here, blending hardcore 20th century composition with intense electronic mangling and a hardcore punk approach to sequencing. The Soul Is In The Arena is an intense blast, very accomplished whilst also sounding fully gonzo. On Denovali Records.

Two Ragged Soldiers
/Asulya​/​/​Water

Two Ragged Soldiers are a duo (yes, there really are two of them) who craft music that straddles the borders between contemporary music and electronica. //Asulya//Water is a two-track 7” that offers a tantalising preview of The Mass, which we will apparently hear later down the line. Limited edition of 300 on Castles in Space.

Illuminine
#1

This is the debut album release from noisemaker Illuminine aka Kevin Imbrechts (Mosquito). Holed up in his bedroom with a guitar and a selection of effects pedals, Illuminine has been experimenting with sound for years to produce this sharp, economical, post rock, post noise-rock record that grew conceptually from a lo fi guitar album into the serene, stripped back, symphonic journey that it is.

David John Sheppard
Vertical Land

The debut solo album from composer David John Sheppard allows him to step out into the light with his polyrhythmic minimalist compositions. By hitting guitars with vibraphone mallets, Sheppard has created an album with distinct comparisons to Liverpool’s Ex-Easter Island Head. Vertical Land is perfect for fans of the minimalism of Reich and Glass. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Village Green. Vertical Land.

Michael Price
Entanglement

This is the first album proper from Michael Price, composer of the music to the BBC’s ‘Sherlock’. The list of recording media used on Entanglement reportedly includes mobile phone, vintage microphones, and 1940s magnetic recording device: Price is very much interested in the context these media impart on the sound. On the Erased Tapes label.
  • Genre(s):

John Metcalfe
The Appearance of Colour

Expansive electro-acoustic compositions from composer John Metcalfe. Having written string arrangements for the likes of Morrisey and The Pretenders, The Appearance Of Colour showcases an alternate side to his style. With a polyrhythmic bent leaning towards Reich and Glass, this involving album brings to mind the solo work of Mark McGuire. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Real World.
  • Genre(s):

Bruno Sanfilippo
Upon Contact Reworked

‘Upon Contact Reworked’ is a collaborative work from Bruno Sanfilippo that features some of the most highly acclaimed artists from the electronic music scene including Francesco Giannico, Olan Mill, Leonardo Rosado, Jorge Haro, Quivion and Hior Chronik in which an original piece written for piano is re-envisioned by each artist.

Ben Chatwin
The Sleeper Awakes

Recorded at his home in Scotland, The Sleeper Awakes by Ben Chatwin is inspired by the works of HG Wells and sees Chatwin, who has previously released music under the name Talvihorros, concentrate on ambient melody as he creates subtle tunes which beautifully meld together into a distinct structure rather than a textured ambient sound. Along with synths and other electronics, Chatwin also uses a 100 year old Dulcitone on the album. LP comes with download code.

Craig Leon
Bach To Moog

Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it moogingly well is! It’s Johann Sebastian Bach set to moog synthesizer. Produced by Craig Leon, with the exception of strings every sound on the album is driven out of the bizarre and wonderful moog, which celebrates it’s 50th anniversary in 2015 and also the 10th anniversary of the death of its creator, Dr. Robert Moog. Bach to Moog is playful fun, embrace it!

Furthermore, he has enlisted remixers to try their hand at the track: Plaid, Errors, and The Field! Imagine being remixed by The Field...

William Ryan Fritch
Leave Me Like You Found Me

Walking through the far reaches of modern classical music, William Ryan Fritch’s sometimes lures us further in with little bits of post-rock tension. Our ears twitch and rise as we recognize a growth behind the pretty melodies, something building. Leave Me Like You Found Me will only have 450 copies, all of which come with an exclusive bonus cd download code.

Peter Broderick
Float 2013

Minimalist composer Peter Broderick originally released 'Float', his debut record, in 2008. A showcase for his versatile talents and penchant for traditionalism, 'Float' depicted Broderick mixing together folk, neo-classical and pop disciplines as if it were the norm. The record is now getting a second release as 'Float 2013', a version that has been remastered by the legendary Nils Frahm.

Lubomyr Melnyk
Evertina

Known for pioneering a playing style he has coined "continuous music" -- in which he plays notes on the piano faster than a grindcore drummer gets through blastbeats, with as much seamlessness as wind on an autumn day -- Lubomyr Melnyk's name has become synonymous with the outer edges of avant-garde music. His new EP, Evertina, is a different bag entirely, though -- it shows what happens when he slows down and turns his mind to gentler pursuits. We've all got to take a day off at some point. I hope his fingers are okay.

Ryan Teague
Block Boundaries

Ryan Teague is one of those savvy neo-classical types who's able to deftly steer between acoustic and electronic approaches to composition, synthesising the two into emotive soundscapes that move between ambience and melody. 'Block Boundaries' has elements of other composers attached to it: it recalls Steve Reich's 'City Life' and Max Richter's 'The Blue Notebooks', as well as Phillip Glass' work, but retains its own singular forcefulness and surprisingly quick pace.

Federico Albanese

The Houseboat and the Moon Reworked is a series of collaborations between Federico Albanese and various producers.

Balmorhea

Post-rock/chamber pop group Balmorhea consits at its core of duo Rob Lowe and Michael Muller.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen
Atomos

Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran return with their second studio album inspired by contemporary dance and new instrumentation. After releasing a first glimpse in the form of the ‘Atomos VII’ EP earlier this year, A Winged Victory For The Sullen finally reveal their second full-length album entitled ‘Atomos’, which besides familiar piano, string and drone sounds also sees the duo introduce flurries of electronics, harp and modular synthesisers. IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “As a wise man once said, one who procrastinates their own choosing will inevitably have their choice served to them by circumstance. We had virtually no time for second guessing ourselves. That being said, we tried to balance the discordance between being creative, and fulfilling our duties for a commissioned soundtrack with a very strict deadline, and all the while staying true to our collective melancholy.” – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie “We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us two years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, liberating.” – Dustin O'Halloran

Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler
Slant Of Light

Neo-classical meets electronic on 'Slant of Light', a collaboration between two artists in different experimental disciplines. Jeff Zeigler utilises synths and guitars, and is accompanied in the composing department by harpist and ambient musician Marry Lattimore. She serves as the melodic bedrock for Zeigler's heady, layered works.

Christina Vantzou
No.1

Christina Vantzou has worked as a visual artist alongside Stars of the Lid and the Dead Texan (where she contributes as a musician also). but makes potent ambient through the orchestral process as well. No. 1 is her first solo record, a collection made on synth and transposed by the Magik Orchestra into an acoustic incarnation. Lots of strings; lots of heart-strings.

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Live On Planet Earth

The Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is one of Alien Transistor’s craziest and biggest acts, always going their own path, somehow defining a route between the 18 of them. Known for their work on label buddies the Notwist’s work, they also draw their own weight: Live On Planet Earth was recorded live and is mysterious and catchy.

The Alvaret Ensemble
Skeylja

A collaboration between Dutch Frysians and Icelanders, Skeylja is a soft, haunting collection of songs that all seem to ooze the greyness of the North Sea. With horns that stir memories of ships passing by in the distance, this album will leave you in weary nostalgia for the lonely lighthouse where you spent so many winters by yourself, writing solemn poems in Frysian.

Piano Interrupted
The Unified Field

Denovali presents the second album from Piano Interrupted, the duo of Tom Hodge and Franz Kirmann. True enough, piano is the central instrument of The Unified Field (a baby grand piano, as it happen), but it is constantly rubbed up against electronic and string textures. Thoughtful work, available on both CD and coloured vinyl.
