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 sonic chambers. Released by Consouling Sounds.

St. Francis Duo
Peacemaker Assembly

St. Francis Duo is the name given to the collaboration of Stephen O’Malley, the avant-drone guitar mage of Sunn O))), KTL and the like, and Steve Noble, who is quite simply one of the best, most inventive drummers out there. The two whip up a heavy storm, Noble darting in, out, and all around O’Malley’s huge guitar sound. Peacemaker Assembly is released by Trost.

We Mythical Kings
Visitations

We Mythical Kings is made up of Raz Ullah and Peter Phillipson. 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.

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 layered-up composition. On Discrepant.

Charlemagne Palestine & Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra
Ggrrreeebbbaaammmnnnuuuccckkkaaallloooww!!!

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. This collaborative performance with Grumbling Fur alter-ego the Time Machine Orchestra is an exploration of automatic compositional playing through an array of unusual live instruments, tape manipulations and detached vocal harmonies.

Dag Rosenqvist
Vowels

Dag Rosenqvist has been something of a serial collaborator over the years, but has recently reverted to droning under his own name. Vowels was made to accompany a contemporary dance performance, but holds onto its power even when played alone. Released as a very fetching clear vinyl LP in a limited edition, on the memorably titled Awkward Formats imprint.

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 around him. Wake Up In The Sun was first released in 1987, now reissued by Bureau B.

Bernd Kistenmacher
Head-visions

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 around him. Debut album Head-Visions was initially released in 1986, and is now reissued by Bureau B.

Duane Pitre
Bayou Electric

Academic drone-artist and former pro skateboarder (seriously) Duane Pitre returns with Bayou Electric. Completing the trilogy started by his last two records, this piece is built up around a field recording rich with personal resonance, around which the sonic resonances of the ensemble were built. On Important Records.

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. Over four tracks, the pair’s synths and guitars recline into a warm haze of sunset ambience. The two play off each other with lots of nice details, but all in service of the music’s blissful vibe. On Trouble In Mind.

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.

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. Frosted clear vinyl on the Blue Tapes label.

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.

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.

Solar Cafe

Available on digipak CD on Eibon Records (500 copies) or hand numbered 180g red vinyl on Deafborn (400 copies). Found sound and drone swamped plucked post rock guitars soundtrack-like album from the aptly(and excellently) named Melanchoholics. With sub frquencies and darkened tones competing with each other, put it somewhere between Labradford and Earth.

Various
Dendrology

The people of Winchester don’t get masses of opportunities to see experimental music, but the occasional series of ‘Ology’ gigs make up for that by being extremely high calibre. This Dendrology CDr showcases one of those great line-ups, with Robert Curvengen, Plurals, Jennifer Allum and Stereocilia.

Feverdreamt
Terban Te Ban

Feverdreamt is a brand new project, reportedly only starting to make music at the beginning of this year. In that time, Feverdreamt has moved from heavy-heat drones to fully developed songs: vocals and all. Terban Te Ban, the project’s debut, is released as a CD in a handmade sleeve, by Blackjack Illuminist Records.

Gareth Hardwick

Head honcho at Low Point Gareth Hardwick has released a number of small run CD-Rs and vinyls based around field samples, delicate fluttering guitar drones, harmoniums and lap steels.

Earth
Primitive and Deadly

Earth, worshipers of all things slow and the band responsible for Sunn O))), are releasing their new record - it's called, with amazing precision, 'Primitive and Deadly'. It's their fifth release for Southern Lord, and continues their ascent into focusing on building subtle arrangements around the focal point of Dylan Carlson's guitar work. On 'Primitive and Deadly' Earth welcome some guests into their doomy mists, the record featuring vocals from Screaming Trees' fellow Mark Lanegan as well as Rabi Shaheen Qazi. There's also bass work courtesy of Sunn O))) collaborator Bill Herzog.   Tracks: Torn By The Fox of the Crescent Moon There Is A Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Torn By The Fox Of The Crescent Moon There Is a Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Badgers Bane

Christopher Hipgrave
No Greater Hero Than The Least Plant That Grows

Sublime ambient music from enigmatic UK composer Christopher Hipgrave. Initially causing a stir with his 2009 debut ‘Day’ Hipgrave has since released material on Low Point and developed acclaimed music-making software. His new album is characterised by its atmosphere of deep contemplation, delicate textural interplay and its ability to elongate a single moment of stillness into a blissful eternity.

Monarch
Omens

Monarch have done the only decent thing and offered listeners more of their diseased drone squalor to wallow in -- 'Omens' is their sixth record, and bleeds together their overwhelmingly loud ambient settings -- with what sounds like dissonant sustained notes being played on a dusty organ -- with what sounds like a choir of groaning mortals. It's hard to tell if anyone's actually singing, but 'Omens' is all the better for that: this is drone made by ghosts. Watch out for the bit where the drums and death metal screams come in, and hell becomes a real thing, rather than just a hypothetical situation.

Ghost and Tape
Poble Nou

Found sound recordings of water, birds along with harmonious synths and strings from Barcelona-based musician, producer and wanderer Heine Christensen under his Ghost and Tape moniker. Layers upon layers of sound build up to create the feeling of a beautiful day. You can almost smell the hot earth and the cool stream. Four track EP on CD.

Robert Curgenven
They Tore the Earth and, Like a Scar, It Swallowed Them

This vital emotive and academic work, entitled 'They Tore the Earth and, Like a Scar, It Swallowed Them', collects field recordings that document colonialism around Australia over the last twelve years, with instrumental work supplied by Robert Curgenven's arrangements trough pipe organ and guitar feedback. The tensions and violences of Australia's politics and landscapes are brought into full view in this startling experimental work.

Lviv
Transmission One

Supposedly named after a Western Ukraine town, presumably in affectionate sympathy for the country's ongoing woes and struggle, this is a collaboration between Gareth Hardwick, Dan Layton & David Stockwell and some cinemaphiliac bods Kneel Before Zod. There's not a great deal of information I can muster up about this enigmatic unit other than they are enjoy putting on multi-media spectacles in the live arena and the sounds are of the "dark drone" variety. The only music for the decaying inert mess that is currently this country I suppose?

Cuts
EP1

'EP1' comes from very anonymous project Cuts and is being released on Invada Records. Cuts' audio-visual work so far has been droning and slow-paced, while their music seems to reciprocate with distorted, soundscaping synth that never lets up and crushing drums that hide in the shadows. 'EP1' has a bit of post-rock glare to it, a lot of the time, but it climaxes less and is ultimately slower and more meditative -- if you can meditate to music this purely loud.   Tracks: Cuts 01 Cuts 02 Cuts 03 Cuts 04 Cuts 05

Deutsche Wertarbeit
Deutsche Wertarbeit

A little gem of a reissue from Bureau B, with this overlooked self titled vinyl LP from Deutsche Wertarbeit. All sorts of wonky German weirdness, akin to the likes of Neu!, Kraftwerk and all sorts of pychey nourishment. I can see Hoy Fuck and LCD Soundsystem having a field day with this one. Out on double LP and CD.

Small Town by the Sea

Dropping field recordings over simple and pleasant beats, connect_icut’s newest release should be both accessible and enticing to a broad audience. WIth layers and structures slowly peeling away and revealing themselves through the ethereal pads, Small Town is sure to please the existent fans and create a few new ones.
  • Genre(s):

Sparkling Wide Pressure
A Heart Is The Hardest Thing To Find

Sparkling Wide Pressure continue to deliver lo-fi drone constructed out of enthralling riffs, sideways synth glare and bottomless chords that appear at crucial, empty moments. A Heart Is The Hardest Thing To Find sounds like a marine dive into a trench that lights up after hours of darkness.

The Splendid Ghetto Pipers
Die Gute Besserung

With a name like The Splendid Ghetto Pipers, you don’t know what to expect. But it certainly isn’t an epic hour-and-a-half long drone fest, which is exactly what Die Gute Besserung is. Recorded live, the CD takes you through layers and layers of noise, static, hauntingly subtle melodies and tenderly quiet guitars. Great winter music.

Thisquietarmy
Hex Mountains

Thisquietarmy is Eric Quach, with Scotty Rooney on drums, bassist Dorian Williamson and vocalists Émilie Bresson and Jeanne Peluard for this album. Post-rock,booming drone soundscapes meet thundering drums and eerie shrieks. Double 180g coloured vinyl on Denovali as well as CD. Definitely a headphone album to really explore the introspective textures of the tracks.

Tim Hecker
Virgins

Tim Hecker’s 2012 album Virgins found the ambient wunderkind working with live ensembles and acoustic instruments more than previously, and also has a lofty, quasi-spiritual sense to it. Those instruments are sometimes clearly distinguishable, and sometimes smeared and abstracted by digital processes, just the way Tim likes them. On Kranky.
