Immersion
Analogue Creatures Living on An Island

Immersion is a project by Colin Newman of Wire and Malka Spigel of Githead. It was shelved just before 2000 and has now been brought back on Newman’s Swim imprint. Analogue Creatures Living on An Island is glorious synthetic dream pop that lacks structure or rhythm, it nears on drone, but with an undeniable sunshine to it.

XAM Duo
XAM Duo

XAM Duo takes one member of Deadwall and matches him up with a Hookworm. Then the pair improvised their way down some infinite komische highways at high speed, producing shimmering electro-psych that stands comfortably apart from the ‘main’ projects of the members. CD / double LP editions on Sonic Cathedral.

James Holden & Camilo Tirado / Luke Abbott
Outdoor Museum of Fractals / 555Hz

DJ, producer and Border Community label head James Holden pairs with artist and producer Luke Abbott for 70 minutes of trippy and minimal synthesizer drone. The two pieces on this double vinyl LP split (with download code) were composed for Terry Riley’s 80th birthday and fittingly are extended, improvised drones influenced by Riley’s hypnotic and percussive music.

Deathbird Stories
Wintermute

One man recording project Deathbird Stories is built on a bed of heavily processed guitar and piano and manipulated tape loops. All forced through a huge string of pedals and effects to create these incredible undulating drones that pack the power, warmth and personality of Fennesz’s Black Sea. Only 50 CD-Rs made! Go!….

Harvestman
Music For Megaliths

Steve Von Till, one of the key figures within Neurosis, has a solo project named Harvestman, in which he unshackles his guitar from straight song forms and summons up images of arcane civilisations. Music For Megaliths is carved out of shimmering abstracted guitar tones, drones and noises. Out on the Neurot label.

Kösmonaut
Songs For Healing

Songs For Healing by Kosmonaut aka Patrick Park was inspired by and dedicated to his daughter who was diagnosed with Leukaemia last year. The synth soundscape is undeniably intense but also at times dusted with beautiful flourishes. Park has added tribal elements and noise to his usual brand of Berlin School synth music and progressive electronics. Cassette tape on These Are Not Records.

Finn McNicholas
Concrescence

On Concrescence, Finn McNicholas combines melancholic string drones with almost imperceptible tape manipulation and electronic flourishes. The composer’s background as a sound recordist and foley artist is also obvious through his incorporation of haunting found sounds and field recordings. More lovely stuff on cassette from Opal Tapes.

Cluster
Konzerte 1972/1977

Absolutely wonderful live material from Cluster here, captured at two 70’s performances. There is a real sense of joyful play here, with our heroes Roedelius and Moebius dabbling and tinkering intuitively with their equipment, The 1972 performance here is particularly heady, transcending the (less than totally hi-fi) sound quality through sheer power. Konzerte 1972 / 1977 is out on Bureau B.

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. Prince Of The Air is a real drift of a record, with each track resting calmly but powerfully in the middle of any space it is played into. This is a CD release from Blackjack Illuminist Records.

Add Red

The Don’t Drone Alone label makes a long-awaited return with their second release, an intriguing realisation of a Michael Pisaro score by sad_rave.

Nicolai Abrahamsen, Jakob Thorkild, Messer Quartet
Nox Tenebrae - Part I & II

Nox Tenebrae is a piece in two parts for the uncommon combination of heavy drone-metal electric guitars and string quartet. Nicolai Abrahamsen and Jakob Thorkild obviously know their way around the Sunn O))) catalogue, but the inventive use of the Messer Quartet makes this a work that stands on its own. LP release on Kontentum.

Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass
Passages

Two essential legends of different genres, united!

Treetop Drive

The early works of Norwegian experimentalist Deathprod (aka Supersilent member Helge Sten) here receive some attention from Smalltown Supersound’s reissues division. Treetop Drive is an early 90’s work composed using Sten’s ‘Audio Virus’ array, spinning twisted samples and unruly electronics into a satisfyingly fried-sounding whole.

Growing
Disorder

As electronic weirdos Growing enter their fifteenth year, they offer up their ninth album, their first in a fair while. Disorder moves with sinister authority and simmering vibes. It is also almost impossible to google-search for an album named Disorder by a band named Growing, so this will surely only be found by those who know. Vinyl LP in a screen-printed sleeve on Important Records.

Sevendeaths is a producer who pushes organic, ‘human’ sounds through vigourous digital processes, transforming guitars and suchlike into heavyweight noisy drone suites. Remote Sympathy sounds as large as the hills and as sweeping as a Scottish storm. It’s released by the LuckyMe label on CD and as a double vinyl LP.

Tobias Hellkvist
Kaskelot: Reissue + Remixes

Tobias Hellkvist has been composing richly-textured electroacoustic suites for some years now. Kaskelot is an EP that went down very well in Japan in 2011: now it gets a bulked-up reissue, with new remixes by artists like Chihei Hatakeyama and offthesky, each one of whom takes the source material in an interesting new direction. Edition of 500 CDs on the Home Normal label.

Tobias Hellkvist
Vesterhavet (Extended)

Tobias Hellkvist has been composing richly-textured dense drone suites for some years now. Vesterhavet was initially self-released last year, but Home Normal liked it enough to give the full extended version of the piece a proper physical release, which is what you see before you. Vesterhavet will suit any fan of thick but melodic big-room ambience. Edition of 200 CDs.
  • CD (HOMEN093)

Immersion
Analogue Creatures

This five track vinyl 10” from Immersion perfectly connects the duo’s backgrounds. First formed by Wire’s Colin Newman and Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel in the 90s, Immersion make organic techno built from precise loops and minimal textures. As the name Analogue Creatures suggests, this EP is about analogue gear and making a racket with it.
  • Vinyl 10" (vwm50)

Vermont
II

Sophomore efforts are always difficult, but Vermont simply continues where they left off. On II, German synthesizer-whisperers Marcus Wogull and Danilo Plessow (from Motor City Drum Ensemble) once again show a world brimming with vintage analog electronics, where they have created exciting upbeat soundscapes approaching the krautrocky. A fine example of why we love it when Kompakt makes exceptions on its strict minimal-techno-producers-only policy.

Laraaji
Celestial Vibration

The endearing and inspiring Laraaji started glowing with Celestial Vibration, his first record, which was originally released on the edge of the '70s under his  other name, Edward Larry Gordon. It's a stunning show of his early innovations, which have now been basked in as the crowning achievement of a new age renaissance -- his use of arpeggiated zither, circular percussive rhythms and trickling ambience pretty much exists unto no other musician.

Mind Over Mirrors
Undying Color

Jaime Fennelly is an electronic shape-shifter, working in a huge array of projects over the years, most notably Peeesseye, Acid Birds, and Phantom Limb. His expansive solo project Mind Over Mirrors has constantly evolved and on his latest brings members of Iron & Wine, Freakwater, and Volcano Choir together as a meditative ensemble mixing analog synthesis, harmonium, fiddles and percussion.

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. Their last studio recordings ended up on 2010’s Sunset To Sunrise EP. Following an appearance at the Half Die festival in Rome they decided to record new material. Severed Tense EP appeared last year and now we have their first long-player in 9 years, Discover the Lost. Typically, the musical interplay between the band creates soundscapes that are haunting just as much as they are melodic.
  • CD (TRACECD017)

Mohammad
Roto Vildblomma

This debut work from Mohammed was first released in 2009. Roto Vildblomma is a powerful sound-mass of strings and electronics, merging impressively into a compelling harmonic whole. This reissue, courtesy of Antifrost, presents the album in brand new artwork, and is narrowly limited to just 111 copies.

Christina Vantzou
No. 3

Classic Kranky material here from Chistina Vantzou’s third record, for which she enlisted a 15-part micro-orchestra. Formerly involved with The Dead Texan, Vantzou here pulls those classical instruments (and several synths) through layer-upon-layer of processing, ending up with a smooth and shiny surface.

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. Putting most of it out himself, he has now turned to Hallow Ground for this two track album. Opposing his rhythmic power in Swans, his solo work is far more abstract and consists of blending tonal and atonal guitar swells.. The Swans terror and tension is still very much in there.

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. This is a major piece of work, an all-consuming epic that stretches near to 80 minutes. The vinyl is limited to independent stores and pressed to lovely orange swirl wax.

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 a three-legged drone race. On this record Forma add artist and musician John Also Bennett to their roster, who most recently offered up a remix for Christina Vantzou's latest record. This record is a tale of two stories, choosing to build a bridge between modular experiments and neo-classical composition. Less techno, more thoughtful slumber.

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 somewhat comforting. Out on Consouling Sounds.

Grumbling Fur
FurFour

We’re big fans of Grumbling Fur here at Norman, have been since the debut LP, Furrier, hit the shelves in 2011 and was followed by the increasingly good Glynnaestra and Preternaturals. Furfour is the latest to the collection and sees the duo continuing their forays into psychedelic synth pop. As ever there’s a simplicity to the songs buried underneath the layers of bulbous synth and catchy pop riffs. It’s infectious and fun. For fans of Moondog, Arthur Russell and Eno.

Christopher Tignor
Along a Vanishing Plane

Christopher Tignor feeds his experiences of computer music (a masters and a PhD) and instrumental music (Wires Under Tension) into the kind of melodic minimalism experimentalism that we hear on Along A Vanishing Plane, which uses a system for live solo electric performance that seems to reap great rewards. Released on CD and double LP by Western Vinyl.

Bang (or slow evolving soundscape) for your buck here. Bass Communion is Steven Wilson  of Porcupine Tree’s avantgarde drone moniker, Colin Potter of Nurse With Wound and long time abstract composer Jonathan Coleclough smashed together on this much sought after record in 2003. Slow and groaning, these immersive soundscapes naggle at your brain.

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 samples jostling with minimal synth drifts. 400 CD copies on Infraction.

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 every sound is completely acoustic too! On Important Records, experts in this kind of thing.

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.

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. Capturing the area, and the mental state your surroundings put you. Lightly driven guitar rings out into an almost mantra like drone, slowing your thoughts.

Kid Millions Reworks Harry Taussig
Beyond The Confession

As the title of this release from Tompkins Square probably reveals, this release collects Oneida guitarist Kid Millions’ various interpretations of guitarist Harry Taussig. Taussig is an unfairly forgotten figure, and on Beyond The Confession Millions turns his expressive guitar playing into a range of experimental drones and freak-outs.

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.

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 defunct Barooni label in 1998. Godbear is an album of solo piano which creates a mind-meddling swarm of grand piano which frantically flutters into a captivating sound-barrier which draws you further in with every listen. Black Truffle Records present a remastered version inside a deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Mats Erlandsson

On Valentina Tereshkova, Mats Erlandsson crafts six electroacoustic compositions that balance his love of sound design and compositional training, with a dark, roughness he channels from harsh noise. The tracks on this vinyl LP from Posh Isolation are poised between graceful, cinematic drone and gritty industrial soundscapes; not a bad place to be really.

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 were so far ahead of time, that now they deserve to be considered alongside contemporaries such as Klaus Schulze and Dieter Moebius.

CHVE is the solo project of Colin H. Van Eeckhout, the frontman of Amenra.

Thick drones are coaxed from his instrument, and processed into cavernous sonic chambers. Released by Consouling Sounds.

Visitations is their debut album - a result of controlled and structured improvisations on guitar synthesizers and a huge array of hacked effects. Recorded over a six day period, whilst locked away in a small cottage on the Isle of Mull and then collated later the album swings from abstract drones and pops to lush guitar picks and lofi driving rhythm boxes.

Charlemagne Palestine & Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra

Most commonly associated with the New York, sixties, minimalist scene, shamanic improviser Charlemagne Palestine is best known for his falsetto vocals and extended performances with beautiful, classical instruments and cathedral organs.

Bernd Kistenmacher
Wake Up In The Sun

Human Greed
Hivernant

Human Greed is a collaboration between sound artist Michael Begg and painter Deryk Thomas. Hivernant is described as a “political statement” in the press release but Begg admits that he doesn’t know what that statement is trying to say. Well, the sounds on the album create great expanses and are both restrained but also epic in how they play to a soundtrack type of aesthetic. Some blissed out sound.

Ancient Ocean
Blood Moon

Ancient Ocean sound very much as you’d expect Ancient Ocean to sound like. Slotting next to your Kranky and Low Point records, Blood Moon is a swirling, droning affair that leaves you swimming in a rich sea of aural delight. Dip your toe and you’re soon immersed. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Beyond Is Beyond.

Tarracoir
Growth

‘Growth’ contains the edited, collaged and overdubbed first two live performances of Dublin grindcore, hardcore three piece Tarracóir (Gaelic for Tractor), featuring Diarmad Mac Diarmada (Tenor Sax, Trombone, Percussion, Garden Hose, Vox), Bryan O'Connell (Drums) and Gavin Prior (Guitar, Vox, Bass, Piano Innards, Electronics). With elements of free jazz and death metal accompanied by chaotic additions of demon-chasing rituals, their music has a primitive brutality that is deliberately ignorant.

Ken Camden
Dream Memory

Kranky continues to pedal its alternative lullaby lifestyle with Dream Memory, a beguiling abstraction of guitar norms by Ken Camden, who attempts to bring together the disparate timbres of guitar and synth. This records alien technological drone is offered estranged vocal flourishes by Angel Olsen and Emily Elhaj, though their voices are processed to the point of algorithm, so don't seek them out.

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. The record's completion coincided with the 9/11 bombings, a sight which is recreated on the record's cover. Considered an attempt at making sound cyclical, 'The Disintegration Loops' is now being given a second re-release due to the high demand of its boxset, each of the four volumes being released as an individual record. 'The Disintegration Loops III' is split into two ambient compositions, clocking at twenty minutes and fifty minutes respectively.

Implodes
Reverser

Mixing drone, shoegaze and psych rock into the same room like distant cousins awkwardly making conversation on the Christmas holidays, Implodes make a strange cacophony of loud noises - reverberating, sustaining and compelling, Reverser offers up a different kind of darkness to the psych rock universe.
