Glassworks

Is Philip Glass really conceited or does the word "glass" just work surprisingly well with everything?

Cluster
Konzerte 1972/1977

Absolutely wonderful live material from Cluster here, captured at two 70’s performances.

Sana Obruent
Prince Of The Air

Sana Obruent is Paul Lopez’s intimate project for stirring up ambient dronescapes, which he apparently does in the dead of night, perhaps to let the spirits in.

The Skull Defekts
2013-3012

What is it with this crazed Swedish band? They're well deranged like a voodoo Gothic tribal breakdown I reckon.

Rothko
Discover the Lost

While it’s unclear whether or not London-based four piece Rothko ever actually split up, it’s been a while since they actually recorded anything.

Classic Kranky material here from Chistina Vantzou’s third record, for which she enlisted a 15-part micro-orchestra.

Norman Westberg
The All Most Quiet

Having been in numerous, yet short lived, projects Norman Westberg is undoubtedly most known for his work in Swans. Alongside, his solo work has been constant.

Mark McGuire
Beyond Belief

Former Emeralds guitar supremo Mark McGuire stretches out his range here on Beyond Belief, throwing in wild synth and drum machine patterns, piano, and even vocals as well as his guitar.

Forma
Physicalist

New one on Kranky looks, from the outside, somewhere between a new Pallbearer record and some psych venture -- in reality it's an ambient behemoth, sprawling its Kosmische excursions over a double album that sounds like Harold Budd partnering up with Steve Hauschildt in ...view item »

Syndrome
Forever And A Day

Mathieu Vandekerckhove plays in the group Amenra, but he also has a lonely and intimate solo project: Syndrome. Forever And A Day is like post-rock music with the grand climaxes taken out and replaced with an uneasy droning ambient aesthetic. It feels bleak, but deep down it could be so...view item »

Along a Vanishing Plane

Christer Bothén
Ljudskulptur För 5

A great logical step for fans of Colin Stetson. Christer Bothén builds micro worlds of percussive drones and pops through his reeds. Immersive headpone stuff where the silence is almost as important. Best known known for his work with Fire! Orchestra and collaborating with Don Cherry...view item »

Beautumn
Bordeaux

I don’t want to fall into a load of cliched ‘ice and snow’ imagery just because Beautumn is from Russia, but to be fair he doesn’t make it easy with that sleeve art, or with the slow, detached tones of his ambient music. Bordeaux is a slight thing, hovering slowly through cold air, with distant s...view item »

Overtone Ensemble
Overtone Ensemble

The name of The Overtone Ensemble does not lie: this group work with instruments that create shimmering clouds of overtones, carefully controlled through microtonal tuning and tactical combinations. 12 aluminum rods are at the centre of their set-up, which also includes bells and wine glasses: and...view item »

Oneohtrix Point Never/ Tomutonttu
Likaiset Pilvet / Wayland Lincoln Border

Tour 7" time! For the tour which most of us will be sampling down the road this Friday eve! Exciting times for which this 7" serves as a delightful appetiser. Tomutonttu released a couple of dementedly fantastic CDs on Fonal not long back that got Brian frothing at the pants and 'Likaiset Pilvet' keeps up the quality, mangling electronic sounds ...view item »

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 »

Charlie Ulyatt
Dead Birds

Sparse and haunting solo guitar pieces hailing from Lincolnshire. These delicate pieces have a similar lonely reflective quality as something written Caught In The Wake of Forever.

Kid Millions Reworks Harry Taussig

Chris Herbert
Katushki

Chris Herbert is a sound architect with a nice, intuitive approach: he is equally adept dealing with melodic material as he is pure texture, and Katushki holds the ear’s attention throughout. It really pulls off that trick of changing constantly but imperceptibly, ending up somewhere altogether different to where ...view item »

Various
Cosmic Machine: The Sequel LP

A wide range of exciting experimental music is represented on Cosmic Machine’s The Sequel, which compiles some choice pieces of French space-jams from the 70’s and 80’s. Not many of the artists will be familiar to the average listener (Moon Birds? Arpadys?), but a few ...view item »

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 5-8

The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 5 - 8 continues the epic archival effort to tunnel through the recordings that were made when the legendary Klaus Schulze started working with Pete Namlook on an array of Moog synthesisers. This 5CD box-set is a hell of a trip through the spaceways, and getting this much m...view item »

Charlemagne Palestine
Godbear

Um, ye, that cover does it for me. I’ll take one. Pretty neat that the music inside of Godbear by Charlemagne Palestine is also epic. From 1987, Godbear was originally intended to come out out on Glenn Branca's Neutral Records but eventually emerged on CD, on the now defu...view item »

Mats Erlandsson
Valentina Tereshkova

Baumann / Koek
Baumann / Koek

Bureau B reissue Baumann/Koek’s self-titled 1978 kosmische synth workout on vinyl LP and CD. ‘Reissue’ doesn’t do justice to the label’s discovery of this dense and psychedelic drone album, which was originally pressed to only 1000 copies. The glistening arpeggios and drum machines ...view item »

CHVE
RASA

CHVE is the solo project of Colin H. Van Eeckhout, the frontman of Amenra. For RASA he restricts himself to using only voice and hurdy-gurdy: a bold move and immense restriction, but one that has firmly paid off. Thick drones are coaxed from his instrument, and processed into cavernous ...view item »

Verma return this week with an LP on Trouble In Mind, who’ve been putting out a lot of good records lately.

The formula is fairly simple, singer Whitney Johnson soar...view item »

Goncalo F Cardoso & Ruben Pater
A Study into 21st Century Drone Acoustics

A Study Into 21st Century Drone Acoustics could be the name of any number of experimental ambient records, but in fact, these are the other kind of drones: the one’s governments use to kill people. Ruben Pater and Goncalo F Cardoso compile one side of drone field recordings, and one side of a laye...view item »

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Unnatural With Pain-Relief

Yet more essential action from the revived Vibracathedral Orchestra.

Yes!...view item »

Dag Rosenqvist

Dag Rosenqvist has been something of a serial collaborator over the years, but has recently reverted to droning under his own name.

Bernd Kistenmacher
Wake Up In The Sun

Bernd Kistenmacher grew up a little too late to roll with the Tangerine Dreams and the Klaus Schulzes of the German electronic music world, but he didn’t let that stop him: he just got hold of the same sorts of analogue synthesisers and got involved, ignoring the digital 80’s world a...view item »

Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp
The Island

The sleeve art to Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp’s new record The Island gives you a good impression of what they achieve here.

Benjamin Finger
x​-​ray three: Amorosa Sensitiva

Deep, atmospheric ambience here from Benjamin Finger. x-ray three: Amorosa Sensitiva uses synthesisers and a number of acoustic instruments to provide the basis of his compositions, but from that point on, processing and electronics stretch these sounds out into intriguing landscapes.

Sublamp
In Our Hiding Voice

The second track on this is like been immersed into a pothole outside a factory where they're drilling things. A muffled fuzzy rumble, disquieting & deep but not sinister, almost soothing! Ten tracks long, meaning more moods & textures to be explored. This is a pretty drone orientated album but it has a presence & a gravity unlike ma...view item »

Jonas Reinhardt
Powers of Audition

Kranky is another label with barely a mis-step to its name. Here is the second album by Jonas Reinhardt which has a synthetic, synthesized feel recalling those late 70's/early 80's behemoths of synth rock Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis. The likes of Trans Am have veered into this territory on occasion in later years but I'm really not sure about it...view item »

Aurora

This is my first exposure to this Polish born, Edinburgh based artist, most likely as this (As far as I am aware) is his first physical release.

William Basinski
The Disintegration Loops III (Remastered)

William Basinski created his ambient and much storied record, 'The Disintegration Loops', by feeding his compositions on loop through a tape head until a myriad sounds were made in its place.
