Tim Hecker
Haunt Me, Haunt Me Do It Again

This guy's well good as I'm sure you well know. This was his debut album, released almost a decade ago, and in the time since its release the number of people trying to straddle the boundary between ambience and noise has grown to fairly insane levels. Nonetheless, even amidst the currently hyperoversaturated market, there's always time for Timm...view item »

Sunn O)))
White2

Sunn O)) have a new album out called White 2. I don't really understand this to be honest. It's big guitar riffs and drones and not much else. Reminds me a lot of old Sub Pop band Earth. 3 track totalling 73 mins you know you're in for an aural feast if you can stick it. Most folks would go utterly mental listening to this ...view item »

Windy & Carl
We Will Always Be

Windy and Carl are back with their first album in three years. Nice to see that there are some people who still take their time over these things. This husband and wife team have created some astounding sonic architecture in the past with their neofolk-inflected minimal-ambient drone. Af...view item »

Anne Garner
Lost Play

Anne Garner returns to Slowcraft Records with another record of slow craft. Lost Play is a record of dreamy songwriting, one where the instrumentals appear to have been recorded in an early-morning haze. The way the droning ambiences and Garner’s breathy vocals slip over one another is reminiscent...view item »

Neotropic
The Absolute Elsewhere

Riz Malsen has had quite the career. In the 90s she worked with likes of 4hero and The Future Sound of London as well as a fruitful and varied solo career.  The Absolute Elsewhere is her first album as Neotropic in nine ye...view item »

Mark McGuire
Vision Upon Purpose

Great 90s style early day graphic design on this. This is the guy from Emeralds I mixed up with Steve Hauschildt last week. This is the one that does play guitar and makes stuff perfect to soundtrack an aerial helicopter-eye view of a golf course. Mastered by the genius that is James Plotkin. Th...view item »

Earth
Phase 3 Thrones &; Dominions

Phase 3: Thrones and Dominions is one of those recordings that gives a newcomer a new perspective on the potential of the electric guitar. In this case, the idea is simple: do away with everything else and replace it with a dense wall of buzzing guitars. There are no vocals whatsoever on this recording, and drums are used very sparingly. The 'bo...view item »

Earth
Pentastar: In The Style Of Demons

Earth created something of a genre-defining record with their debut, Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Version, a concoction which founder Dylan Carlson called 'ambient metal' and which is now more widely known as drone metal. Comprised of three very long tracks of very loud, very slow droning guitars feeding back and riffs bleeding into one anothe...view item »

Earth
Earth 2

This is not an album that you listen to like most albums. The idea isn't to actively listen to it song by song; you start with track one and just let it fill the room/headphones while you go about doing whatever you do. It's like a piece of furniture or a new colour of paint on the wall - it's essentially gigantic, powerful background music. For...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 3

This is the third collection of tracks from Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook entitled, you guessed it, The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 3).

Carl Weingarten
Living In The Distant Present

Carl Weingarten is a long underrated ambient slide guitarist. Hopefully, this reissue of his 1985 album, Living in The Distant Present, can change that. His music is deeply meditative, and will be comfortingly familiar to fans of new age music. Most impressively, Weingarten manages to find the ambient ...view item »

Charlemagne Palestine
Ttuunneesszz Duh Rruunneesszz (Blue TB7 Series)

The highly respected composer and artist Charlemagne Palestine has long adored Moog synthesizers, and started experimenting with them in the 60s. Well now is very different from then, and having been given access to the moog lab he dove right in to create 6 longform drone pieces utilizing as many oscillators as he could imagine....view item »

William Basinski
The Deluge

More glorious tape-loop-based minimal composition from William Basinski. The Deluge presents an alternative approach to the source material used on recent companion piece Cascade: a piano loop is processed via various subtle feedback systems, until the whole thing washes away in a haze. White LP on Temporary Re...view item »

Sunn O)))
Domkirke

Domkirke is a document of a 2007 live performance by Sunn O))) in the atmospheric environment of Bergen Cathedral. Stretching far beyond the usual palette of infinitely-amped riff-crashing, these 4 side-long tracks feature plenty of organ and the dread vocals of ...view item »

Bitchin Bajas / DSR Lines
The Encyclopedia Of Civilizations: Atlantis

Spain’s Abstrakce Records double down on their Encyclopedia Of Civilizations series. Following on from a split drop by Jonas Reinhardt and Jürgen Müller that imagined Ancient Egypt in sound, the lost city of Atlantis now gets a similar treatment from Bitchin Baja...view item »

Siavash Amini
Foras

Siavash Amini's rain-textured drone has wowed us ever since What the Wind Whispered to the Trees, where neutral environmental grounds found vulnerable, almost songwritten ambience. Foras is his sixth solo record in as many years and sees him continue to traverse these liminal spaces, considering the very way our ...view item »

Tangerine Dream
Quantum Key

Pushing through a curtain of archival reissues, here comes brand new work from the legendary synth-lords Tangerine Dream! The current, post-Froese line-up of the band have worked up some suitably epic and soulful electronic odysseys that should more than ...view item »

Julia Kent & Jean D.L.
The Great Lake Swallows

Guitarist and tape looper Jean D.L. trades some threads of thought with the esteemed experimental cellist Julia Kent and a whole album comes out. You lucky lot. A gorgeous timbral juxtaposition sees The Great Lake Swallows become a unique soundworld of its own, one combining cry...view item »

Schafttijdsamba

B. F. E. Records (Minimal Man, Glorious Din) reissue this 1982 LP from Dutch experimentalists De Fabriek. Schafttijdsamba is a varied listen. On tracks like ‘Future Discoverer’ the group fit relatively easily into the minimal synth boom of the time, tho...view item »

Masayoshi Fujita
Stories

“Once upon a time, there were mountains, a lake, a river and a waterfall in the forest.”So begin the sleeve notes on this gorgeous twinkle fest of an album, and it tells a very pretty story indeed, a fairytale story of swans, young deer running through the forest, morning dew and memories of the wind, this is really lovely stuf...view item »

Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext....view item »

Caterina Barbieri / Eleh

Important Records (Coil, Xiu Xiu) are dropping two Caterina Barbieri records on the same day. Concurrently with her new LP Born Again In The Voltage we also get this split album alongside Important mainstay Eleh. Both of them contribute a side to ...view item »

Kano
Runes

The first thing to say about this is that it’s not by the grime legend Kano. In fact, Runes is about as far away from ‘P’s And Q’s’ as it’s possible to get. Originally released in 1986 under the names of both Kano and Don Campbell - again, nothing to do with the Lover...view item »

MMMD
Hagazussa

MMMD see their score for Lukas Feigelfeld’s Gothic horror flick Hagazussa - A Heathen’s Curse released by Antifrost. This is as dark as the ‘dark ambient’ genre gets before it turns into full-on doom. The record is full of unsettling drones, eerie plumes of sound...view item »

Tim Hecker
Ravedeath 1972

This isn’t the brutal sensory blast that the amazing title might suggest. It’s creepy pipe organ/piano/synth drone music, recorded in a church in Reykjavik. Super unnerving, but equally beautiful and engaging. It’s one of Hecker’s best works for sure, and is released on double LP and CD on Kranky....view item »

Sarah Davachi
Gave In Rest

Proving it's both a marathon and a sprint, drone artist Sarah Davachi puts out yet another record. Hot off the heels of the impressive baroque tone poem Let Night Come On Bells End the Day, Davachi makes the hop to Ba Da Bing! for a record of lonely, isolationist ambient music that refl...view item »

Tashi Wada With Yoshi Wada & Friends
FRKWYS Vol. 14 – Nue

Yoshi Wada opened up experimental music to entire new ways of approaching structure and timbre; a player of bagpipes, band leader and sound designer, his work has been commanding and uncompromising. His son, Tashi Wada, is a composer in his own right, and the two have here collaborated on a record of explor...view item »

A Winged Victory For The Sullen
A Winged Victory For The Sullen

Here's a dream marriage in floaty heaven! Adam Wiltzie from Stars of The Lid and Dustin O'Halloran have a new thing and this is it. Initially it sounds like how you'd expect it to sound. O'Halloran tinkling away on the old ivories and Wiltzie making some orchestral majestic sounding drones in the background. So far so good. At times it goes all ...view item »

Tropic of Coldness
Framed Waves

Italian-American duo Tropic Of Coldness release their latest drone opus via Glacial Movements (bvdub & Loscil, Scanner). It’s a fittingly-named label for an album such as Framed Waves. This is a work of slow beauty built on sonic micro-shifts rather than ...view item »

Siavash Amini & Matt Finney
Gospel

Siavash Amini and Matt Finney follow last years ‘Familial Rot’ tape for Umor Rex with the immense ‘Gospel’ CD on Opal Tapes offshoot imprint V A N I L L A.

Christina Vantzou
No. 4

This latest LP from Christina Vantzou is a bit of a love-in. Getting together with Angel Deradoorian, Forma's John Also Bennett, Clarice Jensen and a fair few others, the Belgian composer allowed her collaborators to add or delete parts at will. Surprisingly, the record doe...view item »

Jean Hoyoux
Planètes

1982, Belgium. Jean Hoyoux creates his album of ‘sound therapy’, e.g. a kosmische odyssey scored for all sorts of synthesisers, delays and filters. Originally released by Centre de Recherche et d’Etudes and somewhat rare since, this new reis...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 4

The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 4) is another compilation record from two great electronic composers: Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook.

Immersion is the pairing of Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel and Wire’s Colin Newman, dabbling once more in experimental goodness. Sleepless is beautifully put together, giving off nice kosmische vibes at times. The album also features some gu...view item »

Steve Roach
Structures From Silence

Steve Roach’s landmark new age ambient album Structures From Silence was first released in 1984, and it's been lulling listeners into a deep state of suspended animation ever since. Structures From Silence is very slow and very spacious, with just a few well-chosen synth elements drifting around the sound...view item »

Steve Reich
Drumming

What collection of the great works of Steve Reich would be complete without the mighty Drumming? The piece, scored for a percussion ensemble of marimbas, glockenspiels, tuned bongos etc., moves beautifully through an array of rhythms and counter-rhythms, following Reich’s simple-but-complex patter...view item »

Jodie Lowther & ARC Soundtracks

Tom James Scott
Crystal

Well, this one's lovely! Tom James Scott has here put together three lengthy pieces of experimental minimal type goodness that falls very much in the soothing and therapeutic camp. Opener 'Skire' has a repeated chiming guitar refrain with heavy reverb over high, glassy drones and field re...view item »

Daniel Schmidt
In My Arms, Many Flowers

There is very little in the way of recordings available of Daniel Schmidt’s works, but his gamelan compositions are sublime pieces which if you’re not careful will send you to sleep. Resonating percussive metals played with a Phillip Glass like repetition, but with a clear progression. In My Arms...view item »

Herbert Bodzin
Revival II - The Electronic Tapes 1979-1982

The Artless Cuckoo label follow up their collection of Herbert Bodzin's archived jazz-rock and fusion stylings on 'Revival' with Revival II - The Electronic Tapes 1979-1982.

Windy & Carl
Songs For The Broken Hearted

After much deliberation this week involving many dubious considerations & stifled laughter we banged Windy & Carl's new CD on to stall the tidal wave of giddy mania & shredded nerves that ensued whilst trying to decide on AOTW. And you know what happened next? The office was swathed in a calm zen-like atmosphere of blissed out melan...view item »

David Tagg
PILL SERIES USB

This release from David Tagg is released on a USB stick packaged within a pill box that promises ‘Sleeping Pills’. But PILL SERIES USB carries the conceit beyond that: the musical contents are in fact intended to soothe the listener to sleep, over the course of 8 hours of ambience. Only 21 copies of this unu...view item »

Visions & Phurpa
Monad

Apparently (and disappointingly) not a DJ Screw-style chopping and screwing of the back catalogue of Mission Of Burma, the 100th release from Berlin imprint Cyclic Law is a coming-together between label boss Visions and shamanic Russian choir Phurpa. The co...view item »

Infinite Music

William Basinski
92982

It's amazing to think that William Basinski's '92982' was recorded in 1982 as it's the sort of thing that could come out on Kranky these days. Actually we're reminded of stuff like Tim Hecker, The Caretaker etc. This music features ultra soothing ambience and floating melodies. So much so that Phil just declared "I feel like I'm floating on a fu...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 1

The legendary Klaus Schulze and his similarly synth-toting pal Pete Namlook loved their Pink Floyd, like any good psychedelic travellers would, and they carried this inspiration over to their Dark Side Of The Moog series. These ain’t covers though: the material here on Volume ...view item »

Just For A Thrill

Some slow cleaners from Fabio Orsi. Just For A Thrill is the new full length offering from the Italian producer.

The Circle and The Point / Sleepwalkers Local / Chapels
Split

OK, I THINK this is The Circle and the Point who I'm listening to at the moment and they sound like a right bunch of oddballs - in the nicest possible way of course. There seems to be a weird kind of semi-industrial noise drone loop thing going on which is making me imagine a Lucky Dragons remix of a collaboration between Starving Weirdos and so...view item »

C. Diab
Exit Rumination

Previously wowing us with No Perfect Wave, his emotive and pop-oriented drone vignette record (recorded by opera-looper Ian William Craig), the wondrous C. Diab returns with Exit Rumination. Here he offers more lovely, mountainous music to stare into a valley with. Guit...view item »

Sunn O)))
Monoliths & Dimensions

Hey there music fan, do you like Sunn O)))? I hope you do because they've just rubbed their first full-on, proper new album in four years all over your face, going "Mmmm, sniff that, taste that, it's our new CD and everyone's saying it's the best one ever and you're going to buy it because it's sooo-oo-oooo good". Well yeah, it is pre...view item »

Steve Reich
Pulse / Quartet

Steve Reich’s office has a huge portrait of Steve Reich looking down benevolently on Steve Reich. Which is kind of like a Steve Reich piece, feeding off itself in a continuous loop. Where Quartet is full of energy and all over the place harmonically, Pulses is a more quiet work - especially for Reich stan...view item »

Brian Chase
Drums & Drones II

Brian Chase is the drummer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but you may be surprised to learn that he has a serious sideline performing and composing in more avant-garde territory. Drums & Drones II is remarkable, with each piece focusing on one single drum but extracting an ocean of immersive sound. Just I...view item »

Scuba Death
The Worm At The Core

The name Scuba Death sounds like it belongs to some psych-rock group, but actually the name refers to a nearly-fatal experience that Brazilian composer Ricardo Donoso had while scuba diving. The brush with doom pushed him to express himself creatively: The Worm At The Core, an album centred around thund...view item »

Annapurna Illusion
Life Is An Illusion

The earthling formerly (or sometimes) known as High Wolf has a rather interesting side project. It's called Annapurna Illusion and it's yet more sonic craftery. This record is one that will  mystify and enchant. It's a heady collection of hums and drone style passages that makes you think that you're in a ...view item »

Circular Ruins
The Thorned Maze

Hazy electronics from Berlin resident Marijn Degenaar, operating under the rather Borgesian name Circular Ruins. The Thorned Maze builds elaborate and spacey synth structures that tend towards darkness, and then leaves the listener to wonder around within them, with captivating results....view item »

Rudi Arapahoe
Double Bind

I’m not familiar with this Rudi Arapahoe feller but Phil assures me he’s very good and rarely puts anything out, so I’m intrigued. On this little CD here (part of Hibernate’s excellent 3” CD postcard series) he gets together with five friends, inclu...view item »

Rare Form
Six Months in Hiding

This lavish release from Californian duo Rare Form features seven lengthy pieces that draw from drone, post-rock, noise music and witchy ambience. The alternation between wall-of-sound screeching and amber-suspended synths is particularly striking on twenty-minute centrepiece ‘The Road To Awe’. Both of the vinyl...view item »

Joe Talia
Tint

'Tint' is the first album from Aussie native Joe Talia in over a decade, and it's a doozy. An electro-suite that brings together modular synths, Revox tape machines and slamming percussion (as is Talia's M.O.), this record veers between austere minimalism and extraordinary lushness, his dynamic free jazz revealing a playful spon...view item »

Om
Conference Of The Birds

Om's second full-length album is a wonderfully self-assured work that illustrates how great music can be made using a very basic set-up, in this case one bass guitarist (Al Cisneros) and one drummer (Chris Hakius) playing ambiguously simple yet strong and melodic bass lines with clear and precise drumming throughout. There's just two songs on th...view item »

Scott Gordon

On Relief Tours, Scott Gordon is trying to find out what exactly a piano can do. A series of 8 experiments where Gordon approached the instrument from a different perspective and with different tools.

Larkian
Dotted Drives And Drone Delays

Swiss-based Cyril Monnard has created something here that does exactly what it says on the tin, 'Dotted Drives And Drone Delays' is a dark journey into computerised and broken down guitar noise, an industrial wasteland of beaten up and spat out distortion. This is a very intense soundscape that is split into two s...view item »

Norman Westberg

Evan Caminiti
Meridian

You might well know Evan Caminiti from his work in droning guitar duo Barn Owl: this latest solo LP presents a more electronic side to his sound, working with synth systems.

Dustin Wong + Takako Minekawa + Good Willsmith
Exit Future Heart

I for one am extremely excited about this. Dustin Wong is the guitar knotter and looper known, in addition to his past service in noise rock band Ponytail, for making majestic records out of simple, riffed ideas. The ecstasy of his music will here be paired with noise pranksters Good Wills...view item »

Kali Malone
Cast Of Mind

Drones for synthesiser and woodwind. The lazy thing to do would be to compare Cast of Mind to Ellen Arkbro's excellent For Brass and Organ. But I am lazy, so I will. Where Arkbro focussed on the analogue Kali Malone, juxtaposes it with the digital, allowing f...view item »

Klaus Schulze
La Vie Electronique Volume 1.2

A further archival dose of synthesizer sound from Klaus Schulze, the hyper-productive German maestro.

Throughout their long career, kosmische pioneers Tangerine Dream have been renowned for their impressive live shows.

Both sides - A was recorded in Budapest, wh...view item »

Landing
Bells In New Towns

Landing have been at it for twenty years but 'Bells in New Towns' proves that they are still as strong as ever.

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records....view item »

Expo '70
Kinetic Tones

I've just been to take the washing out of the tumble dryer and completely forgotten what I was supposed to be doing. All I could think of was the latest masterpiece from Om: 'Pilgrimage'.
