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.

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. Deep caverns of tone and click, moving slowly forwards towards who-knows-what end. Meridian is released on CD and LP by Thrill Jockey.

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.

Melanchoholics
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

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.

Nathan Bowles
Nansemond

You gotta just feel blessed whenever the banjo is being played for good rather than evil, and Nathan Bowles offers us one of those moments of respite with 'Nansemond', a record that looks dark but is deceptively bright, recorded loudly and proudly to best and most fully express the Americana it admires.

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

Zed (aka Bernard Szajner)
Visions Of Dune

Another rare synth classic for you all lovingly reissued by very careful people. This time its from a concept album based around Frank Herbert's 'Duner' by French electronic pioneer Bernard Szajner. The key words are sci-fi drones and otherworldly melodies drifting about creating an immersive listen. Rashad Becker remastered it in Berlin and there are two bonus tracks which feature on the CD or on the download code with the album.

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.

Anla Courtis
Cassetopia


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.

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.

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.

Alabaster Falcons
Alabaster Falcons

Just 50 editions of this produbbed clear tape were released, a self titled album from Alabaster Falcons which utilises a variety of collected sounds including running water, breath, and what sounds like player piano creating bold, strong imagery of shimmering, sparkling light, refracted through prisms, ascension and the art of Zen. On Reckno.

Mandible Chatter
Grace

Experimental weirdness from Mandible Chatter on this reissue of their 1993 album Grace. A mishmash of all sorts, from shrieking to out of tune fairground ride music, always looking to unnerve or make us misstep. Drone and abstract composition using acoustic guitars as well as a medley of assorted sounds. On Magnanimous on CD.

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.

Terry Riley
A Rainbow In Curved Air

Terry Riley is the master of tape. Turning 8-second loops into musical instrumentation you can see how he is an inspiration for composers such as Phillip Glass  and William Basinski, you can also hear from this record The Who’s inspiration for Baba O’riley. The original, now classic 1969 release comes back once again.

Tim Hecker
Harmony In Ultraviolet

Harmony In Ultraviolet still sounds out as one of Tim Hecker’s finest achievements: a particularly grand and coherent suite that shifts seamlessly between sparse drone and shuddering noise. One of the immersive greats of the 2010’s, this is an album you can really allow to carry you off. Available from Kranky.

Deathprod
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. LP reissue with remastered audio.

Tim Hecker
An Imaginary Country

A 2009 example of the very fine work of Tim Hecker. An Imaginary Country is the album wherein Tim explicitly set out to conjure up the impression of a whole landscape using his washes of sound, and he pretty much nails it: this country is definitely one I’d like to visit. Colourful and bright and lush abstract electronic music, on Kranky.
