Praed
Doomsday Survival Kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis.

Moritz von Oswald Trio
Sounding Lines

Moritz von Oswald and Max Loderbauer are pretty well established and well respected players by now, but even so, they must hardly believe their luck that they’ve managed to pull Tony Allen into their trio for this album. On Sounding Lines, Allen adds trademark rhythmic flourishes to the electronics we are used to, with remarkable results. On Honest Jon’s.

dj. flugvel og geimskip
Our Atlantis

Always a good idea to do a concept album about Atlantis, and all the more interesting if it is something other than a prog rock album. Our Atlantis, by dj. flugvel og geimskip is very far from that: it is a technicolour, electronic dreamscape / dance-party, with flugvel’s synth programming and sweet vocals expressing a bright wonder at the Atlantis idea. On Geertruida.

Dolphins Into The Future / Lieven Martens Moana
Songs Of Gold, Incandescent

Dolphins Into The Future, aka Lieven Martens Moana is a closely thought-out project that expresses its creator’s experiences through field recordings and songs, each presented with a varying degree of treatments. These pieces, first available in a myriad of other ways, are here compiled onto a private press LP in an edition of only 170.

Claude Speeed
Sun Czar Temple

Rich textured electronic noises from Scotland’s Claude Speeed. FAO fans of the softer side of Tim Hecker, Fennesz et al. At times recalling the bleepy arpeggios of early Emeralds yet with a much more synthetic edge, Sun Czar Temple is well worth diving into. Available on 12” vinyl from Planet Mu.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Bjarki
Happy Earthday

Bjarki’s versatile electronic music always has some ambient undertones going on, even if they’re muffled by manic jungle beats or haunting techno kicks. Happy Earthday, the successor to 2016’s AE, promises a little bit of everything, -- but never without that distinct and personal atmospheric base layer.

Franck Vigroux
Théorème

Franck Vigroux’s 'Théorème' is an EP of monolithic beats and digital grit. The fact that Vigroux has previously collaborated with the late Mika Vainio should give you an indication of what kind of territory we’re in here. It’s experimental electronics at their most dystopian and physical, 'Théorème’s' four tracks - unlike much contemporary electronics - stands on its own without an academia drenched press release.

Christian Löffler
Graal (Prologue)

Graal (Prologue) is the third album released by German producer Christian Löffler. Given that bracketed subtitle I think we can safely assume it won't be his last. Along with his collaborators Mohna and Josephine Philip, Löffler makes cold and emotive dance music that rattles the bones. On Ki Records.

Bendik Giske
Surrender

Saxophone-wunderkind Bendik Giske delivering his hypnotizing debut. With the sense of a more accessible and less intimidating Colin Stetson, the Norwegian explores all the nooks and crannies of the sax. Surrender is the man’s first full-length but it’s packed with warm sounds, the clicking of valves, and mesmerizing rhythms. Great reed, would recommend.

John Maus
Songs

The 2006 debut of avant-pop musician John Maus, from before he rose to real prominence. Songs is super-electronic and rich with nostalgic longing for many things, especially the sound and culture of 1980’s pop. Fair enough John, it was a pretty evocative time. Features Ariel Pop on two tracks. Songs has been reissued by Ribbon Music.

Silk Road Assassins
State Of Ruin

Silk Road Assassins drop their debut LP via the notorious Planet Mu. Given how lush State Of Ruin sounds, it’s no surprise to find out that the trio of Tom E Vercetti, Chemist and Lovedr0id all make electronic library music for their day jobs. This album is full of the sort of sombre, muted takes on trap, dancehall, grime etc. that Mr. Mitch has become so good at over the past couple of years.

Mount Kimbie
Mount Kimbie DJ-Kicks

Mount Kimbie fans -- particularly for their selecting and mixing skills -- rejoice, for finally have !K7 got around to giving the duo a space in their hallowed DJ-Kicks series! Featuring a plethora of goodies from the likes of Severed Heads, Object Blue, Via App and an exclusive from the boys themselves of course, the seeds of the mix were sown when they toured with Actress across a run of six dates. A whole box of drums and textures on the CD (23 tracks, mixed) or 9 tracks on 2x vinyl LP of course, should you prefer.

Kirkis
Kirkis 2

Kirkis is a funny bloke - just look at the cover for Kirkis 2 if you don’t believe me. This record sees the Melbourne artist applying his trickster punk spirit to a sort of dollar-bin rendering of the Italians Do It Better sound. Some of it comes off a bit like The Moonlandingz, some of it makes you wonder what Berlin-era Bowie would have done if he’d ever discovered minimal synth music.

Ot To, Not To
It Loved To Happen (Remixes)

Back in 2016 Nicolas Jaar’s Other People imprint released Goshen, an album of experimental r ‘n’ b from Ot To, Not To. In preparation for the follow-up It Loved To Happen the Virginia duo have handed remix duties to four other artists operating somewhere between mainstream and leftfield sonics. Xiu Xiu, Ben Chatwin, Machinefabriek and Carlos Nino each turn in something lovely on It Loved To Happen (Remixes).

Kiasmos
Kiasmos

Minimal neo-classical pianist and composer Ólafur Arnalds joins Janus Rasmussen to release under the name Kiasmos, a Scandinavian project that investigates the intersection between Arnalds acoustic compositions and Rasmussen's drenched-in-synth pop music. Lots of wonderful should-be-contradictions arise, such as drum machines next to string swells and ambient textures next to dance music. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Veronica Maximova
Computerlove

Russian/Belgian artist Veronica Maximova releases her debut album Computerlove via VOITAX. It is a dark musing on modern life and the hyper-connectivity we have through technology and the ultimate lack of true connection we feel. It's a brooding electronic pop/drone album that challenges and allures.

Belief Defect
Remixed 01

Belief Defect opened up the contents of their Decadent yet Depraved album to the floor, and this is the first stage of what came back from their producer pals. Remixed 01 features four tracks, reimagined by Surachai, Alessandro Cortini, Telefon Tel Aviv and Kangding Ray. Lots of variation of approach just within these four tracks, making for a very interesting EP. On Raster.

Nate Young
Volume One: Dilemmas Of Identity

New one from Wolf Eye’s very own Nate Young, who in his solo releases thus far has burrowed down a peculiar and mucky brand of experimental electronics. ‘Volume One: Dilemmas of Identity’ - which comes out via Young’s own Lower Floor Music - is a collection of material which Young made during the time of his Regression series, but wasn’t quite the fit for that project. Needless to say it’s as essential as anything with Young’s name attached.

Boy Harsher
Careful

Given how much mileage Boy Harsher have got out of their first few releases - their Lesser Man EP has been reissued more times than this Norman Records™ description writer has had hot dinners - it wouldn’t be over-egging the pudding to call Careful one of the most eagerly anticipated LPs of 2019. The duo’s second full-length record finds them adding a touch of Johnny Jewel-ish noir to their icy coldwave sound.

Brainfeeder X

We all like a bit of Flying Lotus's imprint Brainfeeder but it can be hard to keep up with their deluge of releases. So this handy compilation could be a good place to get acquainted or re-aquainted with the LA based beats people. It's a 4LP (or 2CD) collection of their best bits containing all your favourites such as  Lapalux, Teebs, DJ Paypal and of course Sir Fly Lo.

Yuri Morozov
Strange Angels

Compiled by Alan Gubby of psych-experimenters Revbjelde Strange Angels presents the first release of Yuri Morozov to the west, after recording for over 40 years and producing more than 46 albums that covered prog, psych, industrial, experimental electronics akin to Radiophonic Workshop, and freak out folk. Being banned and monitored by the KGB means this is the first time this stuff has been on vinyl and CD.

Danske Båndamatører // Danish Tape Amateurs 1959​-​1976

In a very Numero-esque move the Institute for Danish Sound Archaeology have uncovered hours of reel to reel tape experiments by Danish amateurs who worked outside of the academy. In doing so they have captured a very specific moment in music history, where whole new musical worlds were suddenly available to people. 

Mika Vainio
Reat

Although the Pan Sonic legend Mika Vainio sadly passed away earlier this year, his busy work ethic means that there is still unheard music that has been waiting for release. Reat is just such a thing: eight tracks of Mika’s trademark audio wranglings, with subtle drones and hammering noise power all in the mix. First release in years for the Elektro Music Department label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Basic Rhythm
Dough Boy / Can't You See

Up for some gritty grime haunted by the ghosts of pirate radio? Because London’s Basic Rhythm (a.k.a., East Man) has it in spades, as usual. Here it’s a pair of tunes for Arcola, housed in a swishly foiled, die-cut outer sleeve. ‘Dough Boy’ is massive stuff. You’ll hear the word “dough” many times. Flip ‘Can’t You See’ is just as muscular, but warmer and more generous with the pads. Fab stuff.

Finlay Shakespeare
Domestic Economy

Domestic Economy is the debut full-length album from Finlay Shakespeare. The Bristolian youngster seems to have a bit of a flair for electro-pop. Respectful nods to New Order and Cabaret Voltaire blended with fresh sounds for the modern age, his skill parallels a musician of greater experience. LP on Editions Mego.

Black To Comm
Seven Horses For Seven Kings

Marc Richter hops over to Thrill Jockey for his latest LP as Black To Comm. Seven Horses For Seven Kings is another plunge into the depths of the human psyche. The blackened, misty music here sounds like it has been dredged up from the bed of the river Styx. Think Prurient, The Body and all that sort of thing.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Pilar Zeta
Moments of Reality

Moments of Reality is the debut album by Pilar Zeta. Released on Ultramajic, the album is a inspired by Japanese new age from the 1980s and post-modern art. Made using '90s synths, the album is a candy-pop haze which wafts between PC Music's riotous manipulations and a conceptual art refinement.   

Objekt
Cocoon Crush

To the great concern of caterpillars everywhere, brainy Berlin DJ and producer Objekt is back at the Deconstruct-A-Club Workshop with another LP for brainy Berlin label PAN. Cocoon Crush is as immaculate as its predecessor Flatland, but contrasts in being much more focused on manipulating recordings (of all sorts of stuff) into organic textures, rather than synthesising material from scratch.

Dark Strands
Unknown Truths

This is the debut album from Dark Strands AKA Tony Beardsley (no relation as far as we can tell to impudent geordie footballing genius Peter). Tony has been inspired by warehouse parties of the late 80s where no particular style or genre dominated. A free for all musical journey where anything goes, varying between rhythmic styles and electronic music strands.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Hama
Houmeissa

Hama is a Nigerian-based composer and this record genuinely sounds pretty fun. Apparently a mix of 90's synth-pop and 'traditional electronic desert folk', what couldn't be to love? I wasn't even aware that contemporary electronic desert folk was a thing, let alone traditional - we live and we learn. Houmeissa is available on Vinyl LP and CD, and released on Sahel Sounds. 

XY0815
Exahertz

The quietly impressive London label brokntoys (The Hacker, Marco Bernardi) drops the debut solo record from Leipzig-based producer XY0815. Anyone who’s familiar with the brokntoys output up until this point will likely have a decent idea of what they’re getting themselves in for here. For newcomers - this is dark, somber electronics of the post-punk lineage. In addition to this Exahertz cuts like ‘End Of Your Orbit’ also have a strong electro flavour.

Ailie Ormston
The Sedate

Ailie Ormston is back, though not quite as you knew her. The affable, wry dreariness of her band ******** gives way on this solo effort to something harder, more minimal and even *gulp* deconstructive. Fortunately, Ailie doesn’t take this stuff as seriously as many other musicians seem to and the result is crucially as entertaining as it is enlightening. Apparently all done with just one drum machine and one synth, and all.

Clarence Séti
Jungle Quest

We don’t know much about this material that Clarence Seti put together in 1991, partly because it was only ever a demo CD. But all that matters is the music, these twelve tracks that we are now able to hear. Jungle Quest will certainly require you to have a taste for digital keyboards, and Seti really lays into his collection here, but this will charm many. Out on Lily Record.

Red Stars CPR
Earth Is Heaven​ /​ Heaven Is Hell

Earth Is Heaven /Heaven Is Hell is the paradoxically named EP from Red Stars CPR, a collaboration between Red Stars Over Tokyo and CPR where they found unity in their difference of approach. Warm and uncanny loops bleed into something more sinister and darkly psychedelic. Earthly and heavenly and hellish. On Testtoon. 

Len Leise / Jura Soundsystem
Adrian / Udaberri Blues

First release from the Temples Of Jura label. Though the label plans to focus on a variety of genres going forward, its first release is focussed  entirely on dub. Side A is Len Leise's tribute to iconic dub producer Adrian Sherwood, while the B side features Jusa Soundsystem's debut release.

Passarani
W.O.W.

Italian legend DJ/Producer Marco Passarani (Nature, Peacefrog, Generator, Skam, Numbers etc.) drops his first full-length in six years on Dusseldorf imprint Offen Music. Nothing to upset the apple-cart across the eight tracks of W.O.W., just eight cuts of perky club fare replete with pattering 808s and swaying melodies. ‘Get Down’ has a bit of an acid flare to it, but other than that this LP is the soundtrack to the last beach party of the summer.

Black Rain
Computer Soul EP

Inspired by the themes and characters of science fiction, Black Rain create dark, atmospheric sounds on Computer Soul EP, the final release in a sequence first started back in 2011 of releases on Blackest Ever Black. The sound moves from cyberpunk to thrash metal and industrial rock - as long as it's dark, it's here.
  • Genre(s):

R.H.G.T.
Depersonalisation

R.H.G.T. - Red Hook Grain Terminal to you, Jordan Edge to his mum - drops a cassette of brutalised electronica through the always excellent Opal Tapes (D.U.D.S., Gondwana). Depersonalisation has three modes: abrasive deconstructed club fare that sits at the limit of what Yves Tumor could come up with; hissing lo-fi beats that sound like a really beaten-up Madlib record being played on a really beaten-up turntable; and forays into pure industrial noise ala Prurient. Depersonalisation is not exactly easy on the ears, but it’s very good stuff.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Shigeto
Weighted

As the snow flies on a cold and grey Chicago mornin', a poor little baby child is born - in Shigeto. That’s pretty much where the similarities with Elvis end for the Detroit artist, mind. On Weighted, Shigeto comes through with a selection of classic Midwest club tackle. ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Ooh Ooh’ are terse 808 techno, while the Ian Fink-featuring ‘The Line Up’ is closer to Moodymann’s Mahogani Music. Motor city royalty Andres rounds the EP out with a remix.

Third Noise Principle: Formative North American Electronica 1975-1984

Very exciting and jam-packed set on Cherry Red: Third Noise Principle, a four CD box-set that covers nine crucial years in the development of electronic music in North America. The huge tracklist doesn’t just stick to one area (e.g. academic electronics or the nightclub), but includes all kinds of different areas, from Smegma and Suicide to The Residents and Laurie Spiegel. Top value release.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Four Tet
New Energy

Yes, Hebden's here. Releasing very soon indeed is his newest Four Tet record and hopefully it'll be slightly more inventive than the laissez-faire samplefest that was Morning / Evening. It's got a nice cover and he's extremely good at making the electronic music he makes, need we say more, no we needn't. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Lowtec
Light Surfing

In the promotion of Lowtec’s new album ‘Light surfing’, there’s talk of “murky bangers” and “sideways beauty”, essential the satisfaction of dance rhythm but achieved in a wayward and unpredictable manner. Lowtec operates with a minimal aesthetic, but it’s one of great economy and precision, with care placed on both caressing and baffling the senses.   

GAS
Zauberberg

Wolfgang Voigt’s second album under his lauded forest techno moniker GAS is back, singly tree-issued on Kompakt. First released in ‘97, Zauberberg offers Voigt’s revolving branches of hazy, throbbing ambient at their most ambiguous, as if unsure of what really waits out there in the woods. The third track especially is one of his masterpieces.

Lucy Railton
Paradise 94

Busy cellist Lucy Railton, who has all sorts of album credits from Bat for Lashes and Jamie Cullum to Bonobo, has her own album this time. Out on Modern Love, it’s an uncompromising look at the possibilities of the cello and the studio. Railton draws fearsome, pulsing rasps, wails and drones out of the instrument, while mangled samples and granular textures thicken the sound into more diverse ‘scapes.

Croatian Amor
Isa

The Dane with the Croatian Amor name Loke Rahbek is back with more brooding post-truth electronics for own imprint Posh Isolation. A fair few guests join in on the Copenhagener’s fun for Isa, including Frederikke “Puce Mary” Hoffmeier, Yves Tumor, Alto Aria, Lust for Youth’s Soho Rezanejad and HTRK’s Jonnine Standish.

Transcendence

A new 12” compilation on NYX Unchained that spans a good deal of territory over its seven tracks. We’ve got lots of soundscape action here, with pieces of techno, heavyweight poetry, organs, guitar riffs and even melodies all surfacing in places. Artists on Transcendence include Maxwell Sterling and James Massiah.
  • Genre(s):

The Human League
Reproduction

Album the first from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Released in 1979, it wasn’t (initially) a hit, but it does present the fully-formed sound of the band who would soon dominate the charts and play a part in defining the sound of the 80’s. LP reissue on Universal, complete with the original, bizarrely disturbing sleeve art.

Modeselektor
I Am Your God / Bronko

In the run up to their next album Modeselektor have given the DJs a head start with the release of I Am Your God / Bronko on 12". The press release describes them as "abysmal" but I'm guessing they don't mean in the bad way. This is tough industrial techno built from the sort of crisp sounds we've all come to expect from the German duo.

The Future Sound Of London
Environments 4

A salad of ambient and drone-like variations from The Future Sound Of London. Environments 4 is another passage through time and space, featuring sonic examinations, forest and urban excursions and eastern drones, percussion and strings. Is it dance music? Is it really the future sound of London? I'll get back to you on that. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Jumpin & Pumpin.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Gonçalo Penas
Ego De Espinhos

Gonçalo Penas is a bit of a maverick, it would appear. Ego De Espinhos is the 22-year old Portuguese musician’s debut album. He has resolutely refused to stick to any formula or rules he has learned in his time at music college so he can fully explore the limits of electronic music. The result, following some intensive self-discovery, is a cathartic album that will blow your mind. LP on Subtext.

Nitzer Ebb
Body Of Work

Body of Work is a compilation album by Industrial synth punks Nitzer Ebb. it was originally released back 2006. It’s an overview of the band’s output between 1984 and 1997 and contains classics such as Warsaw Ghetto and Join The Chant. Mute are reissuing the band’s back catalogue which means that this nifty little set is being released on vinyl for the first time. 4LP red/white vinyl set on Mute.
  • Genre(s):

Subjective
Act One – Music For Inanimate Objects

Subjective is Goldie and James Davidson joining forces to create an album on Sony’s classical music subprint Masterworks. What a time to be alive. Based on the first few tracks of Act One - Music for Inanimate Objects, the project seems filled with lush instrumentals glazing over intense breakbeats, somewhere between Clap! Clap! and Ricky Eat Acid.

Machinefabriek
With Voices

Tireless timbral titillator Machinefabriek crackles his way onto Western Vinyl with an album of various human voices variously manipulated and recomposed into a shifting soundscape. Whose various voices, you ask? Those of Peter Broderick, Richard Youngs, Marissa Nadler and Zero Years Kid, for instance.

Ricardo Donoso
Calibrate

Denovali (Nadia Struiwigh, Her Name Is Calla) drop the new LP from Brazilian artist Ricardo Donoso. Calibrate sees Donoso going even deeper down the dark IDM/techno path than he did on June’s collaborative LP with Thiago Kochenborger. Frenzied soundscapes like ‘Rendering The Ineffable’ recall Arca, Phase Fatale and Bonaventure in equal measure. Powerful stuff.

Yves Tumor
Safe In The Hands of Love

Safe In the Hands of Love was first released in fragments; from the single ‘Noid’ being labelled Pitchfork’s Best New Track, to the release of a Daniel Sannwald-directed video ‘Licking An Orchid (ft James K)’ to Zane Lowe premiering ‘Lifetime’ on Beats 1. 24 hours later, the whole album is laid bare in all its experimental-pop-music glory. Taking inspiration from trip-hop to jazz to the melancholy mourning of the synthesiser, the album expertly manoeuvres across genres.

Felsmann + Tiley
Tempora

Felsmann + Tiley are German-born musicians, Patrick Tiley and Dominik Felsmann. Whilst the pair love movie scores, piano-based pieces and the best electronic music has to offer, they often feel that all these styles stick to a path well-trodden or, in the case of film music, don’t work out of context. With Tempora, they wanted to make an album that was cinematic in range with a classical heart, using only synths. Their inspiration comes from Nils Frahm, Deadmau5, Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein - the pair who scored the Netfilx series Stranger Things and Olafur Arnalds. LP on Rare Ware Co.

Styrofoam
We Can Never Go Home

Belgian electronica veteran Arne van Petegem drops the latest thing from his long-running Styrofoam project. We Can Never Go Home is a record of typically pleasant, slightly emo bedroom instrumentals. Imagine The Postal Service sans lyrics. Greek label Sound In Silence (yndi halda, (ghost)) proves a fine fit for the album.

Extremely weird dance music hermit DJ Koze has found the time between an inexplicable raft of Ibiza appearances to create Knock Knock. Featuring a raft of guests (Bon Iver, Róisín Murphy, Mano le Tough), the album is an array of sunshine-y bangers of all shapes and sizes.

Damon Zucconi
Untitled Substance

Debut music release from Philadelphia based tech focussed artist Damon Zucconi. Known primarily for his visual work, including a piece for Arca, on Untitled Substance Zucconi takes his visual practice of "perceptual recognition manipulation and digital mis-engineering" and applies it to music. The result is some truly gnarly Baltimore inspired club music and a number of more abstract interludes.

Emika
Falling In Love With Sadness

The first solo album in a little while for the busy multi-project artist that is Emika. Falling In Love With Sadness is perhaps a richer, denser listen than past Emika, with her dramatic voice sitting in a soundbed of big spacey synths and melodic hooks. Released on the artist’s own Emika Records label.

Hellfish & Bryan Fury
Baby Eaters

Who are these babies and what are they eating? It’s double trouble with Hellfish and Brian Fury, here showing us the importance of hyphens on their new single Baby Eaters. It’s a vibrant trip through some truly shocking, provocative hardcore techno - pummeling, crushed beats and grisly samples. Really radical stuff.

Eartheater
IRISIRI

The latest envelope-pushing visionary to join the Pan roster is Queens-based artist Eartheater. With a name like that one comes to IRISIRI expecting a metal band, and though Eartheater’s music tends more towards the turbulent electronics of Aisha Devi and Alice Glass this LP also has a whiff of the electro-industrialism of, say, Nine Inch Nails. The rock influence brings IRISIRI into the orbit of recent drops by Hirakish, Zola Jesus and IVVVO.

Signals Into Space is the seventh album by electronic duo, Ultramarine. They made their first recordings for Les Disques Du Crépuscule way back in 1990. Signals Into Space sees the duo working with Anna Domino and saxophonist Iain Bellamy. It was conceived in their rehearsal space - a room without windows. This location has played its part in creating what they call a ‘visually escapist’ record. LP and CD on Les Disques Du Crépuscule.

Kamikaze Space Programme & Eomac
ETXC004

Eomac has had a busy 2018. As well as dropping his Reconnect LP and the accompanying Resist All Dogma EP on his own Eotrax imprint he has had a part in four collaborative records for his ETXC series. Following on from unions with Paula Temple, Sean Carpio and Demian Licht we now have the fruits of his labour alongside Kamikaze Space Programme. ETXC004’s ‘Environment 1’ revolves around a lopsided techno locked groove, while ‘Environment 2’ is full of hissing synth drones.

Jazz bass, synth and percussion improvisations you say? Well. step right up for Cutheart by Aussie couple, Tolley & Dara.

David Tolley is a renowned Australian jazz bassist who has played one album by The Brian Brown Quartet and also formed Ex- with Gong’s Daevid Allen.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things: Halloween Sounds From The Upside Down (Picture Disc)

Spooky/nostalgia two-fer Stranger Things is pretty much held together by its solid soundtrack, created by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein who blew the dust off their dads’ old synths. They made an ambiance that breathed denim jackets, perms, and an unadulterated fear of the unknown. Now the kind folk at Invada are releasing a sweet picture disc featuring the scariest unknown b-sides. Limited edition only.

Carl Matthews
Call For World Saviours

This LP actually came out in 1984, but given the monstrous mess that we have on our hands in 2018 an album entitled Call For World Saviours is due for a very timely re-release. Carl Matthews’ twinkling ambient synthesiser compositions are equal-parts Tangerine Dream, Tim Blake and the new age sounds that were coming out at the time of the record’s initial release. Calming sounds for crappy times.

tnc6
Sekundenschlaf

Looping fragments of jungle and breakbeat rhythms propel squalid synths and samples on this offering from Russian artist тпсб, or TPSB in Latin script. We doubt it stands for Terrebonne Parish School District. The title Sekundenschlaf refers to insomnia-induced microsleep, summing up the hazy, anxious tone of the album. Well-matched for Blackest Ever Black.

CultureClash
CultureClash

Reissue of an early 90s release that stems from the Dutch city of Utrecht. It’s brought to us by Lost Futures, a label centred on exploring revolutionary dance releases that were either underappreciated or lost in time. It’s fittingly adventurous, rooted in the sounds of Detroit and Chicago, but constantly manipulating these foundations into deviant new forms.

Thundercat
Drunk

If you move in certain areas of music (the LA Brainfeeder / cosmic jazz axis and surrounds), you will appreciate Thundercat as a god-like figure. The man plays electric bass like nobody’s business, but he is also a mighty songwriter, and Drunk is his own record. It features an amazing cast of collaborators (Kendrick Lamar! Kamasi Washington!), and is presented on one CD or four 10” vinyl records.

Vessel
Queen of Golden Dogs

Where Punish, Honey had Vessel twisting the sounds of 90s rave music into strange and brutal shapes, on Queen of Golden Dogs he's turned his sights to chamber music. To create its uncompromising mixture of mashed up cellos, violins, and pianos, Vessel spend 18 months alone in Wales where he was able to explore the whole gamut of human emotion.

Penelope Trappes
Penelope Two

Penelope Two: the second solo album from Penelope Trappes (also of The Golden Filter and Priscilla Sharp). The Trappes sound is slick and noirish electronic shoegaze pop, all slow and cinematic. Trappes’ voice sets the tone with its cold cool: this album will likely do great things for Julee Cruise fans. Its released by Houndstooth.

FaltyDL
If All The People Took Acid

4-track EP of classic acid-house from FaltyDL. It takes the ever satisfying bump-and-squelch of acid to brilliant levels of abandon. With titles like ‘Flesh of Acid’, you get a real hint of the kind of potent physicality the release brings with it. Amongst the three original tracks also comes a remix of the title track courtesy of Octo Octa.

The Golden Filter
Dislocation

The Golden Filter are a duo who mix retro electronics with post-punk and their sound has been likened to Human League-meets-Siouxsie and the Banshees. Dislocation is their new 5-track EP and contains the track Talk Talk Talk, which you may have heard with increasing frequency at festivals last summer. 12” EP on 4GN3S.

House of Daggers
BRKN02

Very limited 4 track 7” of mangled electronic music. With analogue gear from the golden-age of IDM and a vicious industrial streak borrowed from Throbbing Gristle, House of Daggers’ BRKNO2 is a raw burst of breakbeat techno. There’s only 200 of this rude rave hybrid and it comes with a download code too.

DNCN
BRKN01.

Perfectly described in the press release as a purveyor of hallucinogenic wonky funk-infused off-kilter glitch house, DNCN gets his first release in seven years with BRKN01. Released by BRKN.DNCFLRS on 7” vinyl in a chunky Kraft card sleeve for that vintage generic techno aesthetic. Lots of fun from the Mancunian tech wizard.

John Cage
Early Electronic & Tape Music

Sub Rosa continue with the vitally important task of keeping a wide range of John Cage’s extensive works available. Here we have a collection of some of his earlier works with electronic mediums, as newly realised by Langham Research Centre. Quite a good approach I’d say, as the open-ended, indeterminate nature of some of these pieces means that every realisation is different!

Philip Sanderson
On One Of These Bends

Philip Sanderson, one half of late ‘70s Deptford DIY post punks, Storm Bugs, changed his musical direction in the early ‘80s and moved into soundtrack work. If you can imagine the music of Godfather score composer Nino Rota, or Henry Mancini produced with a DIY esthetic and an orchestra built up from various analogue synths, acoustic instruments and tape experiments then that’s what you get with On One Of These Bends.

Life In Sodom
The Stains / Alessandro Adriani Remix

As Mannequin Records closes in on 100 releases Alessandro Adriani’s label dips its toe into the reissues market. This one is a 1991 single from Goth-wave legends Life In Sodom. Both versions of ‘The Stains’ are gloriously vampiric combinations of darkwave, techno and industrial rock. The same applies to 1992 cut ‘Phantasmagoria’ which crops up on the B-side. Label boss Adriani provides a club edit of ‘The Stains’ to round the EP out.

Succhiamo
Mani In Fuoco

Succhiamo returns to Antinote (Tolouse Low Trax, Alek Lee) with another dose of oddball Italo Disco. Mani In Fuoco builds on the good work Succhiamo put in on his Antinote debut back in 2017. That means you can expect more lopsided electro-disco grooves and more seasick synths. Anyone who’s been digging Cardopusher recently should give this a go.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Synectics
The Purple Universe

‘90s clubbers may recognise the name Synectics. The duo of Marco Repetto and Stefan Riesen dropped a string of records on labels including Rephlex and Delirium back in the day. The Purple Universe, their only LP, came out in 1993 on the former. Now Musique Pour La Danse have resurrected the album for a reissue. The braindance-techno hybrids here are sometimes heavy, sometimes beautiful things that aren't dissimilar to what Rephlex boss Aphex Twin was up to contemporaneously. Three of the tunes here are being pressed on vinyl for the first time.

Rrose
Beware of Shells

‘Beware of Shells’ is a five-track EP of lysergic techno bangers from the London-based artist Rrose. These are grooves stretched way out, sprawling tracks that emphasise digital muck and writhing modulation. It’s a release that comes from her Eaux label and pursues a bloody-minded approach to the techno genre, happy to divert away from what’s commonly expected with deviations into tripping drone.

Tom Richards
Pink Nothing

Create an unholy mix between Ryoji Ikeda and Jan Jelinek and you may end up with Tom Richards. Lots of bleeps, abstract beats, every single sound extremely electronic. Probably something you outsider-electronica lovers will eat right up. Pink Nothing is an oddly satisfying safari into an electric wasteland.

Various
In Death's Dream Kingdom

The Houndstooth label tasked the 26 acts on this extensive 4x LP box set with the following brief: take T. S. Eliot's 1925 poem 'The Hollow Men' with its doom and apocalyptic atmospheres as inspiration for a new track each. The contributions include music from Pan Daijing, Lanark Artefax, Roly Porter, Abul Mogard and Gazelle Twin with particular reference to the phrase in the poem: "In Death's Dream Kingdom". Perhaps appropriately dark in theme for today's challenging times, the collection is nevertheless diverse yet coherent in styles, aesthetics and ambiences. Topical electronics: apply liberally.

Scandinavian Star
SOLAS

Lust For Youth/Oh No Ono’s Malthe Fischer returns as Scandinavian Star with the follow-up to the project's self-titled 2015 cassette. SOLAS is a record of ghostly electronics and techno malfunction. It takes the early Posh Isolation power electronics sound and chops ‘n’ screws it to mournfully beautiful effect. One could quite easily imagine this being released by Rabit’s Halcyon Veil imprint.

Various
A Creak Retimed

A Creak Retimed is a group of tape rework's of the soundtrack to Steven McInerney's A Creak in Time by Howlround. Taking it to task are Tom White, Merkaba Macabre and Dan Hayhurst. Taking a more artistic approach to the concept of a remix, the gathered musicians explore the limits of tape manipulations.

Fall Therapy
You Look Different

According to his biography on the n5MD website, Eymeric Amselem produces ‘nostalgia electronica’. What that means is that his work as Fall Therapy combines various club styles - by turns house, techno and UK Garage - with the sort of stargazing instrumental licks that one finds cropping up on records by the likes of Maribou State and Nathan Fake. You Look Different is Fall Therapy’s debut LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Paper Dollhouse
Empty Rave

Paper Dollhouse re-release their 2016 cassette Empty Rave. The title of this record is an apt one - its washed-out synth sounds, cascading drones and watercolour synths bring to mind a more cerebral rendering of what Daniel Avery does. Occasionally, as on the boinging ‘Playdoh’, the duo make more overt overtures to the club.
