Nils Frahm
All Encores

The incomparable Nils Frahm presents the third and final instalment in his Encores series of EPs, with all three of the compositions available as an 80-minute album titled All Encores. Conceived of as “musical islands” off of the mainland of 2018's album All Melody, the third part is more percussive and electronic than the previous EPs that focussed on piano and ambience. 

Andi Otto & F.S. Blumm
Entangleland

Andi Otto & F.S. Blumm basically got together to entangle things. Whether that be acoustic guitars, harps, bass or cello, they used the natural instruments to make a peaceful album of electronica and neoclassical bliss outs that showcase elements of spaced out dub, vintage synth lullabies and ambient beauty. Sounds absolutely delightful.

Various
ALERT!

Alter, the label of Luke Younger (a.k.a. Helm) has been a consistently essential source for releases which fall through the cracks. Whether it be The Bomber Jackets, Yeah You, or Low Life, this label provides a home for D.I.Y aesthetics and ethics, irrespective of anything as trivial as genre. This compilation ALERT! can be seen as a user's manual to the modern underground, including artists as form shattering as Teresa Winter, Tomaga, and The Modern Institute.

Grauzone
Eisbär

12” single re-issue of ‘Eisbär’, the 1981 hit single from short-lived SWiss outfit Grauzone. Meaning ‘polar bear’ in German and evoking an icy, Arctic atmosphere, this synthy post-punk gem was a substantial success in the band’s native country and is now regarded as a minor genre classic. Contains Grauzone’s two other minor hits ‘FILM 2’ and ‘Ich Lieb Sie’ on the B-side.

Four Tet
Beautiful Rewind

Beautiful Rewind was the seventh album released by Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden). It was (ahem) 'dropped' without any fanfare or trailers which led to an excitable reception particularly with lead track Kool FM which eventually found its way onto Grand Theft Auto. Elsewhere it's more reliable electronics from Hebden which expands on his previous There Is Love In You by moving his fluttering sample-based electronica into darker territories.  

Mike Mangino
Coisas

A pioneer of noise techno as one half of the iconic Smersh alongside Chris Shepard in the Eighties, Mike Mangino is still putting out challenging material in the 2020s. Coisas is released on Joachim Nordwall’s iDEAL imprint, and is a thrilling coalescence of dub, noise, industrial and synth music.

Echium
Disruptions Of Form

Disruptions of Form is the latest album from enigmatic Manchester-based producer Echium. He is known for his hermit ways and making some precise ambient electronic music. This album is no exception, mixing ambient pop and cosmic electro-acoustics in a painstakingly arranged manner. It’s his first sferic since 2017’s Synthetic Space. It sees him rejoin a stable that also includes Space Afrika, Perila and Jake Muir.

Drexciya
Digital Tsunami

Sadly ‘electro’ is now all too often synonymous with mostly terrible stuff -- electroclash, electro swing, etc. Well, Drexciya was electro at its best - hard, dark, and fast. As a new wave of young producers are obviously going back to these roots -- a quick listen to Objekt’s Flatland, one of the best records of 2014, is testament to this -- it’s nice to see Tresor reissuing this on 12”. Keep an eye out for Tresor’s upcoming reissue of Drexciya’s double-LP ‘Harness the Storm’, too.

Four Tet
Morning / Evening

On 12” vinyl or CD on Text. In perfect indemnible style, Four Tet releases his new album on his own imprint shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Only info in this is via his bareboned tweets, giving us the front cover and the fact that there are only two songs, each around 20 minute mark in length, one entitled Morning Side, the other (shockingly) Evening Side. I’ve already bought it, my friends have already bought it, and so should YOU!?!

Andrew Weatherall
Pamela #1

Right, you are gonna need to get on this. Pamela is the project Andrew Weatherall was working on before his untimely passing earlier this year. It was made in collaboration with Nina Walsh inside the studio laboratories they shared. Both have an array of samples and ideas at their disposal and this is a fascinating snapshot of what they were up to.

Daniel Avery & Alessandro Cortini
Illusion Of Time

Illusion of Time is a collaboration between acclaimed electronic producer Daniel Avery and Nine Inch Nails collaborator Alessandro Cortini. The project has come together over a number of years. Before they’d even met, they had communicated the idea that they wanted to work together and started working separately, without theme or deadlines. The album came together when they were both part of the Nine Inch Nails touring set up in 2018.

Knxwledge
1988

Finally delivering a proper sequel to his massively acclaimed debut album Hud Dreems from back in 2015 (on top of the gargantuan number of mixtapes released over the last ten years), Grammy-winning hip-hop producer Glen Earl Boothe (known under his moniker Knxwledge) releases the much-anticipated 1988. 

Roll The Dice & Various Artists
Assimilarity

Now that they have their own label the New Black, Roll The Dice's Peder Mannerfelt & Malcolm Pardon have issued some of their more collaborative work as Assimilarity. Here they hook up with the likes of Alessandro Cortini, and El Perro del Mar on a collection which drifts from dream-pop to kraut to noise and back again.  Here's a joke to cheer you up in these terrible times... What's the name of that guy from Roll The Dice.. Malcolm...?  Pardon.  I SAID WHAT'S THE NAME OF THAT GUY FROM ROLL THE DICE...etc etc.  Thank you. Goodnight.

It may seem like an age since The Orb released a new album but it’s only been two years, which over their career is par for the course. It must be my ailing memory! Abolition of the Royal Familia features a bunch of high profile guests including Youth, Steve Hillage, Roger Eno and Jah Wobble. The veteran electronic duo will be out on tour supporting the album too, so look out for dates.

NYZ
OLD TRX [87-93]

Dave Bloody NYZ. The Australian based, UK born scientist of noise returns with an archive release of some of his oldest bleeps. This is a 2LP worth of vintage tunes from the '87 to '93 period which pre-dated similar noises coming out of Autechre, Aphex Twin and the Rephlex laboratories. A wide ranging blast of techno, acid, hardcore and breakbeats from a leader in his field. Essential.

The Fear Ratio
They Can't Be Saved

Casual observers may not know the Fear Ratio but they are a collaboration between James Ruskin & Mark Broom both known for solo works and in collaboration with others. Together they make a sound which combines electronica, ambient and experimental works. Here on their third album they delve into broody dub landscapes and late night electronics as well as nod toward hip-hop and techno. Gonna be good we reckon.

First LP in over three years from the husband and wife duo Peaking Lights. Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis have built a reputation for making dreamy, dub-infused psych and electronica that helps take the listener into a faraway dreamscape. Hence E S C A P E which helps to provide just that for their listeners - a transcendental, celestial journey for both daydreams and discotheques.

Annie Hall
Fum

Annie Hall (not the Woody Allen film of the same name) is a Barcelona-based artist who makes classic electro which is perfectly in step with the aesthetic of the CPU label. This second 12" is full of broken electro grooves, techno beats and evocative atmospheres that bring to mind legends of the genre such as the Orb, early Autechre and LFO.

Tryphème
Aluminia

As a hotly anticipated follow up to her debut album, 'Aluminia' is the brilliant electronic brainchild of production whizz Tryphème (aka Tiphaine Belin). Belin here retains that sense of boundary-free creativity, funnelling eerie vocals and glitchy synths aside a host of whirring and swirling and soundscapes.

Tornado Wallace
Midnight Mania

Australia's Berlin-based Tornado Wallace comes to Scotland’s Optimo Music with a five track EP. Midnight Mania is inspired by both the planet Earth and how relatively small it is and the earth AKA dirt. This EP is percussive, psychedelic and at one with nature. Tornado Wallace has previously released records through Second Circle, Music From Memory and Running Back.

Attrition / Alu
Attrition / Alu

Here we have an eponymous split album between Coventry band Attrition and Berlin band ALU. The post-industrial and electronic sounds, dystopia and existentialism on offer are informed, for both bands, by the cold war, the effects WWII had on both cities and the way they were rebuilt with brutalist architecture. RIYL Cabaret Voltaire, Nocturnal Emissions and Nurse With Wound.

Craven Faults
Springhead Works

Like kraut rock made on the Yorkshire Moors. Thats what I personally said about the first Craven Faults record 'Netherfield Works'. This time these mysterious Yorkshire people are back with new works which will again appeal to fans of old dusty northern synths. Certainly the likes of Kieran Hebden, Dan Snaith and Gold Panda have been getting on board.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Craven Faults
Nunroyd Works

These Craven Faults records have been...um.. faultless in their depiction of West Yorkshire as breeding ground for kraut rock and analogue synth experiments. I've regularly trudged the canal paths with them on my personal stereo. This third (final) instalment sees the project reach the cities where the vegetation gives way to post industrial wastelands and back gardens bedecked with white rose flags. Essential.

Dream Division
Escape from Planet Sauvage

Polytechnic Youth regulars Dream Division are back with a double A sided 7” Escape From Planet Sauvage. Tom McDowell from the band says that his influences here were the spacey electronic sounds of Daft Punk, Air, Giorgio Moroder, Richard Pinhas, Heldon and Video Liszt. Of course, this all comes shot through with Dream Division’s dark side.

Oxykitten is the musical project of Justin Case, which I assume is a pseudonym, surely!

Holden & Zimpel
Long Weekend EP

This is what we want to hear. UK electronica bod James Holden hooking up with Polish Clarinet lord Waclaw Zimpel for a series of collaborations. It all happened when the twosome got together for a week in a London studio. Joined occasionally by guitarist Jakub Ziolek, the duo and trio jammed out some blissed-out krauty journeys - an international love in between the clarinet and modular synth.

Christian Löffler
Lys

What to do when you are struggling with writers block? Christian Löffler travelled to Scandinavia and visited loads of galleries. That seemed to shift the damn thing and he returns with his fourth full length album Lys. As well as galleries it was inspired by forests, running and the early morning light on his studio walls. The result is a calming work even on the more upbeat tracks and features the vocals of Swedish singer Mohna.

Jonathan Sharp of The Heartwood Institute and Wayne P. Ulmer of Paramint Manse recorded their music in their isolated homes on either side of the Atlantic using analog synths, cassettes and treated samples, all inspired by a giant tome of parapsychedelia before exchanging ideas and remixing and altering and blending each other's ideas.

However, few of his previous works have been as enduring as the material he’s been releasing in recent years.

Somni
Home

Nice background story for Leo Shulman aka Somni as he swapped Hampshire for L.A as a child and spent his teenage years soaking up the music of his new country. Initially this was the more guitar orientated liked of Elliot Smith and Cat Power but subsequently he immersed himself in the soul and hip-hop of the likes of Flying Lotus and J. Dilla. You can hear all these influences in this album of intimate home-fi songwriting as Shulman returns to the music that excited him as a kid. 

Matt Karmil
STS371

A ruminative album of ambient, hazy house music constructed from loops and soft-edged beats, STS371 is the fifth collection from British-born producer Matt Karmil. Put together at his own studio in Cologne, Karmil’s work fits neatly into an impressive output that dates back his earliest album ----. 

BOA
Outer Gateways

Outer Gateways is the result of a collaboration between best friends and producers Gary Geiler (a.k.a. Ovis Aurum) and Kevin Palmer (Best Available Technology) as BOA. Five years after a release on the Seagrave label and following a 12”, SUS033, it’s a creative and cathartic exchange of ideas and mutual loves between two brothers forged into eight new tracks.

Tod Dockstader
Aerial 1

Tod Dockstader's Aerial series came about due to the composers fascination with AM radio. He recorded hours of static, buzz, dialogue and whatever else he found by turning the dial and mutated it into a series of drones, atmospheres that lure the listener deep into his world. The fact that he produced this at a time when he was supposed to be deep into retirement just exemplifies the endless creativity of the man.

bvdub
Ten Times the World Lied

Ambient techno guy bvdub releases his 40th album, Ten Times The World Lied, through Glacial Movements. The name of the label is perfectly suited to bvdub’s slowly engrossing music.

This is his first album without vocals, but that makes for a superb soundscape which gradually closes in, like clouds preparing to rain.

Most of Burial’s output in the years since his game-changing LP altogether in one place. What’s not to like? There’s nothing new on ‘Tunes 2011-2019’, with the man who is maybe-possibly known to his mates as William Emmanuel Bevan selecting his favourite tunes from his excellent EP run of the past eight years. It’s interesting charting the progression of Burial’s music over the time-period, with his greyscale garage sound expanded to incorporate drone and dark ambient influences but still staying true to the project’s root style. ‘Tunes 2011-2019’ represents the first time some of these tunes have been released on CD.

Something about the word moist or moisture, unless I’m talking about cake, makes me want to have a shower immediately.

The experimental producer shows influences from bosses of techno such as Jeff Mills, Pan Sonic, and Plastikman along with famed electronic composers such as Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, and Phill Niblock to make an album as cerebral as it is visceral.

He first started picking up attention five years ago with his SE15 Tales, a brooding mix of house and techno released on the Peckham imprint Peur Bleue. This new three-track collection, functionally titled EP, arrives with similarly little context. 

Shit & Shine
Scenic Farm

Formed nearly two decades ago by Texan artist Craig Clouse, noise-rock/freaky whacked-out electronix outfit Shit & Shine return to the Rock Is Hell label for their 13th studio album, Scenic Farm. Spread over four sides of vinyl, it’s one of the band’s most exploratory and out-there releases to date, taking in snappy funk and acid-driven workouts on the first side alone.

Kate NV
Room For The Moon

Her latest album, Room For The Moon, follows-up  для FOR and sees her manipulated vocals woven into a fabric of xylophone, guitars, sax and synth.

PML Beatz
Pedra de 800 Kg

A breathtaking collection of three face-melting club workouts from Lisbon-based PML Beatz on this 12” vinyl release with the curious title Pedra de 800 Kg.

M-G Dysfunction
Complete Deletion

Norman Records has a vast and rich history of its employees making music as well as packing it or writing about it. M-G Dysfunction is the latest and comes from someone we'll call Fred M-G who, initially it seems, is ashamed of this work but dig a little deeper behind his tough exterior and I'd bet you he is rather proud of it. It is a series of home recorded experiments that showcase a creative brain at work and has been compared to Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement and Carl Stone.

Abfahrt Hinwil
Links Berge Rechts Seen

The name looks like an anagram and maybe it is but what lies behind Abfahrt Hinwil is an important piece of music history from the early 2000s. Y'see Abfahrt Hinwil are the duo of Martin Haidinger and Chris Cunningham who also ran the Toytronic label which existed from the late '90s all the way to 2009. Their sound exemplifies what they were doing with the label which is bleep 'n' bass 'n' glitch electronica that is summed up pretty well by the term Toytronic. First time on vinyl for this one.

Drexciya
Grava 4

2002’s ‘Grava 4’, the final Drexciya LP, only deepened the aura of mystery around this singular group. If you don't know the full story we suggest that you read up on it - it's a fascinating mythology, one of dance music’s most vital Afrofuturist narratives. As well as worldbuilding, Drexciya also made some damn fine music in their time. ‘Grava 4’ goes easy on the machine-gun basslines and broken 808 beats in comparison to some of their other records, but this gap is filled by some of the duo’s richest and most evocative production.

De Ambassade
Duistre Kamers

The minimal-wave fiends at Knekelhuis (EYE, Parrish Smith) offer up the debut LP from Amsterdam unit De Ambassade. Duistre Kamers builds on the sound laid down on the group’s formative EPs Verloren and Wat Voel Je Nou. These nine tracks oscillate wildly between minimal synth, electronic post-punk, EBM and coldwave. Serious Cold War vibes with this one - think Suicide, The D.A.F., Fad Gadget and the rest.

Seekersinternational
Badmanboogie / Killdemsound

‘Badmanboogie’ and ‘Killdemsound’ is the latest 7” single release from Canadian collective Seekersinternational. The two new tracks are compressed, futuristic dancehall delights, which are in keeping with the group’s long-standing reputation that goes all the way back to the mid-Nineties!

Leisure Connection
March Of The Imbecile / Love From The Astroplane

You remember that ace 'Jungle Dancing' party guaranteed record from Leisure Connection on No 'Label' right? 'March Of The Imbecile / Love From The Astroplane' sees the duo of Aaron Coyes (Peaking Lights, Image Club, Face Plant) and Nate Archer return with a couple of trippy tunes, recorded in Los Angeles and presented via the R=A label. They used to make tracks as Rahdunes, and have brought some of that zoned, freaky psychedelic flavour to these cuts.

Systems E.P. 1

25 years ago this Systems E.P. 1, featuring three cuts from Red Shift, one from Ether, one from Escape Artist and one from Constants of Nature, was too much to handle, clearly way ahead of its time and consigned to the bargain bin. Once people started to get it, though, that bargain bins across the globe were scoured with anticipation of finding a cheap copy. It was harder to find than you might have thought but no fear, its being reissued by Kalahari Oyster Cult.

Mike Slott
Vignettes

Mike Slott aka Mike Nolan returns to Lucky Me, a label he helped set up, after 10 years away with Vignettes. His last release for the label was the influential Lucky 9Teen EP.  Slott is keen, with Vignettes, to avoid the cliched ‘imagined film soundtrack’ tag. It is, however, quite useful in describing the sonic world he has created here. Immerse yourself.

Miguel Noya
Canciones Intactas

Canciones Intactas, which translates into English as Songs Intact is a lovely name for a career retrospective. It suggests ambient electronic composer Miguel Noya is telling us “Whatever has happened, I’ve made these songs and they’re here for eternity”. His music has seldom been heard outside of his native Venezuela and were mostly recorded to a backdrop of national financial crises, a corrupt government and violence on the streets. The music acted as, not necessarily a remedy, but a soothing balm to help cope with the outside chaos.

Seahawks
Island Visions

Seahawks are made up of Jon Tye and Pete Fowler and over the last decade have been making a distinctively psychedelic sound with balearic influences. Their latest missive is Island Visions  - an attempt to take the listener away from the mundane everyday. With influences from library music to kosmische synth to ambient house and new age its another melting pot of ideas from the intrepid duo.

Christoph de Babalon / Mark
Split

Quite a unique split mini-LP this one as Berlin beatmaster Christoph de Babalon takes up three quarters with some of his menacing and complex breaks but leaves a little room at the end for the mysterious Mark (try googling him) who provides a piece of isolationist woodwind entitled Duet For Melodica And Claves.

John Tejada
Moving 909s (incl. Plaid Remix)

A new John Tejada EP is exciting enough even without being coupled with a remix from legendary Warp act Plaid. On Moving 909s the artist pays homage to the sample-heavy dance music of the late 1990s and in particular Optical's banger Moving 808s (see what he did there?) Plaid re-work and re-define whilst the EP is completed by the moodier Infinity Room.

Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

One of the most revered techno acts of all time, Drexciya were mysterious, near anonymous and blended futuristic beat work with Afro influences resulting in a kind of underwater dance music. Harnessed the Storm was their second full length album and is one of their most intense works blending sci-fi influenced electro with uncompromising rhythms. Truly legendary.

Star Searchers
Avatar Blue

How far could you swim in two hours? I could do about 25 metres I reckon on a good day and with the wind behind. This 2CD from former the Skaters member Spencer Clark as Star Searchers features two hours of music made to represent the swimming patterns of aquatic life. It also serves as a soundtrack to an speculated imagining of how James Cameron's forthcoming Avatar 2 might be soundtracked. Ocean-based new aged synth wanderings for bath time. 

Ratgrave
Rock

Rock  - great title but it isn't just rock music that duo of Max Graef and Julius Conrad are interested in. Here as Ratgrave they take influence from funk, soul, jazz rock and electronica to make an album that may well be genre splicing but still owes a debt to Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. On the Black Focus label founded by Kamaal Williams.

PC Music Vol 1 & 2

PC Music is a London based label whose USP is to put records out that are surreal or hyper real takes on pop music. This double LP or CD contains two albums worth of what they have given to the world since the label’s inception in 2013. Artists include Hannah Diamond, Danny L. Harle, Life Sim and label founder A.G. Cook.

Ulrich Schnauss
A Strangely Isolated Place

We certainly need some music that screams "don't worry, everything is going to be ok" with big soothing synths and comforting bass lines right now. One answer could be to revisit Ulrich Shnauss's back catalogue which often melds Boards of Canada-style electronics with towering melodies. A Strangely Isolated Place was his second album and since Schnauss has the rights to his back catalogue back, he's doing the decent thing and re-issuing them.

Severed Heads
Clean

Classic Australian post-punk here in the form of Severed Heads’ 1981 second album, Clean. The experimental mix of synths, sequencers, guitar, samples and violin makes for a weird but addictive listen. One reviewer at the time called it ugly music that you can’t ignore. That’s a pretty accurate summary.  Worth noting that 25% of the proceeds of this album will be donated to Australian Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities.

Jon Brooks, who is also known under the alias Advisory Circle who release records through Ghost Box, returns with How To Get To Spring, his fourth album for Clay Pipe Music. As the title suggests this album takes us out of winter and into spring with some beautiful sounds.
