Outland

Alan Myson records once again for the esteemed Planet Mu label with his sixth studio album as Ital Tek.

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.

Burial
Truant/ Rough Sleeper

Truant/Rough Sleeper was mystery-shrouded producer Burial's 2012 despatch (seems so long ago now) and comprises of two long form tracks that clock in at a mighty 25 minutes plus. Like a lot of his music it seems to capture the ghosts of post rave and UK garage and utilise them in two episodic suites which contain a variety of moods and tempos. Some of his more experimental work for sure but as necessary as anything he's done. 

Overflow
Heil Eris / Enjoy

Here are more sounds from  he past regurgitated for ears young and old. These tracks were originally lost cassette culture obscurities from the 1980s featuring live takes (it's what we all had to do back then) using drums, synths, affected voices. The results veer from cold/synth wave pop to longform ambient pieces that sound remarkably modern. First time on wax restored and remastered from the original tapes.

Nathan Fake
Blizzards

He knows.. he knows what's been happening. The aptly-titled Blizzards is Nathan Fake's first album since 2017's Providence and sees the electronics meister deliberately limit himself to rudimentary equipment and recording first takes with little embellishment. The result is a clubbier, more live sound that retains the melodicisms of his earlier work on Border Community.

Gabber Modus Operandi
HOXXXYA

Not an easy one to describe this one from Indonesia’s Gabber Modus Operandi. A gurning, hypnotic blend of metal, gamelan, industrial and hardcore and even a bit of traditional Indonesian folk. The results are not like anything else and possibly not for the faint hearted but will appeal to anyone missing a bit of madcap rave or lunatic hardcore in their life.

Terekke, whose work is usually heard on the banging L.I.E.S. label, here takes a meditative approach for Music From Memory. Improvisational Loops is as it claims to be: an organically-developed suite for digital synthesiser and looper. The album grew out of some yoga classes, so the music is appropriately new age tinged.

GAS
Königsforst

Warm on the heels of last November’s Zauberberg reissue, it’s the equally welcome Königsforst. Following on from its predecessor, it has all the fundamentals of the signature Gas sound: thickets of grainy, slowed-down strings and brass ushered along by mucky, throbbing kicks into lush forested reveries.

GAS
Pop

Pop by GAS is regarded as a bit of classic. The fourth album, originally released in 2000, by Worlfgang Voigt’s electronic music project is seen as the album where he showed us his clearest vision yet. Pitchfork regard this album rather highly too, rating it as the 11th best ambient album of all time. 3LP on Kompakt.

Ernest Hood
Neighborhoods

Created using fields recordings, strange stringed instruments, and treated samples, Earnest Hood's 'Neighbourhoods' is imbibed with a profound sense of nostalgia. You can just hear the faint hum of a radio and the chirp of crickets, the album sounds like a summer's day. Although much of the sounds are familiar, Hoods synthesises a series of alien soundscapes that sounds like great sonic glaciers glancing off one another. Not only that but it was made in 1975! It still sounds wholly fresh and modern. FFO Mort Garson, Ellen Arkbro, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma.

Burial
Tunes 2011 - 2019

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.

Ssleeping Desiress
Exile House

Exile House is the second studio album from San Franciscan musician Gabriel Ramos, who records under the name Ssleeping Desiress. It arrives a full five years after the project’s self-titled debut, and ploughs the same field of gloomy, icy yet inventive darkwave, with bands like The Cure as Ramos’ touchstones.

Felix Kubin / Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg
NNOI#I

One of the more convoluted press releases I've ever read. Let me simplify it all for you. These are collaborative LPs from artists who played at the NNOI Festival. One side is an electro-acoustic soundtrack to a 1924 silent film by Felix Kubin. Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg we know less about. The only information I can glean is that he(?) has this to say.... "The old gray gurnard from the Waterkant creaks." Make of that what you will.

It's typically lysergic stuff from true dance auteurs.

Daniel Davies
Signals

Composer and musician Daniel Davies makes his recording debut for the Sacred Bones label. Signals evolved out of a period of collaboration with visual artist Jesse Draxler, and the eight tracks here are sculpted from guitars and keyboards, with melodies looming out of (then receding back into) haunting soundscapes of drone and synthesiser. 

Black Meteoric Star
Disco

The press release is at pains to point out that this is not a disco record  - despite it being entitled Disco. It is though a dance record  - a throbbing, mutant beast that explores the dark side of dance culture. Black Meteoric Star is of course Gavilán Rayna Russom, the famed electronic music producer and DJ known as being lead synth prodder in LCD Soundsystem. A thought provoking missive for dark times.

Gavilán Rayna Russom

Kaffe Matthews
Foreigner

Kaffe Matthews comes with a zoology degree and an apprenticeship from time spent with Graeme Park at the Hacienda. A seasoned traveller, she had never lived in one place for very long so she decided to move to Berlin and become a Foreigner, which happens to be the inspiration and title of her new LP. The album sees her utilising the Italian Elka organ and making music that shifts, morphs. Rolls, stops and changes.

Bright Serpent

Roedelius
Selbstportrait Wahre Liebe

A whopping four decades after he released his first ‘Self Portrait’ album in 1979, after which a further seven instalments followed in the time up until 2002, another instalment in Hans-Joachim Roedelius has arrived. Selbstportrait Wahre Liebe is a timely reminder of the power of the German’s solo work outside of Cluster and Harmonia. 

Daniel McCagh
Altered States

Australian composer Daniel McCagh has already worked commercially with the likes of Volkswagen but this is the first of more experimental work from the musician. He manipulates acoustic instruments to make ambient music with an industrial, machine-based edge to it. A fascinating opening statement from an ambient practitioner to keep an eye on. Just 250 copies of the clear/smoke vinyl edition. 

Ulrich Schnauss
Goodbye

Ulrich Schauss is a German composer whose early records gained popularity for a kind of dramatic shoegaze 'n' synth sound  - something like Boards of Canada backed by the instrumental members of U2. Perfect synth-gaze fodder for driving an Audi through a mountain pass. Goodbye was his third album which continues to hone this ethereal soundtracky sound with nods to Harold Budd and Brian Eno along the way. Re-issue on Scripted Realities.  

Hiele
Stadspark

Hiele is an electronic composer and musician based in Antwerp, Belgium. His new album is called Stadspark, a one time recreational area in his home city which is now a seemingly dystopian no go area. It has become a dumping ground for unwanted pets and the playground area is sealed off with crime tape. On Universal Exports - a new label ran by Roman Hiele himself, producer Yves De Mey and Allon Kaye who runs the most excellent Entr'acte label.

Nightports w/ Betamax
Nightports w/ Betamax

VHS vs Betamax was the great home video fight of the early '80s but now we get Nightports Vs Betamax. Nightports are two musicians from Leeds and Hull who are experts in manipulating electronics and here team up with drum wizard Betamax of The Comet is Coming. Their rule is to only use the sounds made by the musician (i.e no sampling, found sounds etc) and they utilise the wild, improvised drumming to it's limit, finding melodies and hidden rhythms and manipulate them to their own end.

Bernard Parmegiani
Violostries

Bernard Parmegiani was a French experimental composer who, by the looks of photographs of him, regularly thinks hard into his beard.... probably about avant-garde music. This selection of 1960s and early 1970s performances is a perfect example of how he uses breaths, minimalist microsonic sounds and field recordings to push forward his theories. This edition comes cut by Rashad Becker with layout by Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))).

Falle Nioke & Ghost Culture

Burial
Untrue

By the time Burial's second album surfaced, his reputation had grown to underground stardom, even if his identity was still a secret. 'Untrue' continued the story of the twilit inner city, loneliness and distant threats informing a melancholic rhythmic atmosphere, and is now seen as a landmark in electronic music.

Far Away Trains Passing By

German composer Ulrich Schnauss has a number of claims to fame under his belt - there’s his highly respected musician status, of course, he’s currently a member of German electronic legends Tangerine Dream, and he was sampled (illegally, as it turned out) by Guns N’ Roses. Now he’s remastering his whole back catalogue. The latest installment is his 2001 album Far Away Trains Passing By. Fans of Brian Eno, Tycho and Jon Hopkins, take note.

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.

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.
