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.

Mary Jane Leach
(f)lute songs

Mary Jane Leach has been a figure in New York’s downtown avant-garde scene since the 70’s but for whatever reason, her recorded output has been sparse, to say the least. When her albums do eventually come around, they’re more than worth the wait. Interest in her work was recently re-ignited with her 2017 album ‘Pipe Dreams’ on Blume, and now Modern Love issue a real treasure spanning thirty years of work. The sheer majestic beauty of these four pieces composed for flute and voice is simply astounding - as though beamed down from the heavens. Like the very best music, it stirs something inexplicable in the listener. Honestly, does music get more moving and majestic than this? Pure gold.

Zomby
Mercury’s Rainbow

Modern Love finally issue Zomby's Mercury Beats, his attempt at re-imagining Wiley's Eskibeat series of releases. Made a while ago while his body clock was all out of whack, the pieces are methodical and rhythmic takes on grime that if released at the time may have shifted the course of grime. We think that is what the press release is saying but you can never be sure.

Phillippe Hallais
An American Hero

Philippe Hallais has been producing as Low Jack for some time, but here he steps out under his own name for the first time, presenting some rather different experiments. An American Hero finds Hallais taking on the tropes of, er, ESPN sports documentaries, presenting a suite of ambientish tracks that trace out the ghost of one of these generic narratives. An American Hero is released by Modern Love.

Turinn
18 1/2 Minute Gaps

Turinn helps to keep the quality and sonic identity of Manchester’s Modern Love label as strong as ever with this debut album release. 18 ½ Minute Gaps is a dark and distorted suite of club music that is almost too intense for any club, sounding somewhat like labelmate Andy Stott pushed back up to normal speed. A double LP of potent sounds, released in an edition of 400.

Andy Stott
Faith In Strangers

Stotty returns with a brand new album which is sure to get fans of the dark recesses of eerie electronic music excitable over the coming months. By the looks of the press release, it might be a varied affair veering from sparse and downcast to motorik and driving to brutal analogue jammzzzz. The track I'm listening to is a slow burning dark brooder with techy instrumentation and heavily affected vocals leading to a quite sublime piece of music. Gonna be big 'n' bleak, get ready.

Demdike Stare
Testpressing#006: 40 Years Under The Cosh / Frontin'

Experimental duo Demdike Stare drop a pair of crunchy new cuts on their sixth limited 'Testpressing' 12". There are two tracks here, '40 Years Under The Cosh' and 'Frontin', the former looping broken beats and woozy, buzzing atmospherics, the second a more aggressive and noisy barrage of glitching distortion and twitchy minimal drums. Comes on transparent "aquatic" 12", insert art by Alex Colman.

Andy Stott
Too Many Voices

Andy Stott returns with a hotly awaited fourth album. Once again, Stott plunges into the gorgeous obsidian depths of treacle-thick distorted basslines and slow-mo juggernaut rhythms, to truly potent effect. Vocal collaborator of choice Alison Skidmore returns again on half the tracks. Too Many Voices is released by Modern Love.

Low Jack
Lighthouse Stories

Low Jack joins the Modern Love roster for his Lighthouse Stories. Don’t let the idyllic title fool you, this is a collection of avant-garde electronics and far-out club music pushed to the limits of genre. The songs borrow the alien sounds and structures of footwork, but twisted into intense SND and Autechre style jams.

Andy Stott
We Stay Together

Reissue of this great double set of 2011-era Andy Stott, on none other than the Modern Love label. These six tracks have that amazing shuffling slow heavy sound that Stott excels at, like techno on a tape machine with running-down batteries. Excellent aesthetic with compulsive grooves to match. Two LPs.

Andy Stott
Passed Me By

Passed Me By comes from Manchester based techno producer Andy Stott. The double vinyl LP crackles and pops with life through its minimal approach to electronica. The tracks dip and dive in and out of swaying instrumentation which transiently fades throughout the track and builds into something different, always surprising.

Demdike Stare
Testpressing#007: Rathe / Patchwork

A new 12" in an ever-morphing series from Demdike Stare, Rathe / Patchwork continues to marry the dark, sonorous and mechanical side of the act with a more dance-oriented, good time approach. "Rathe" is one for your feet, a jungle-influenced cut that punches articulated rhythms and a strikingly emotive sound. Then that all goes to hell with "Patchwork", which is another one of Demdike Stare's reclusive, reproaching and chaotic pieces.

Rainer Veil
New Brutalism

I suppose it was inevitable that Modern Love would eventually release something actually named New Brutalism… Not that I am complaining in the slightest! Lovely stark brutalist imagery on the cover, and similarly stark musical content on this 12” from Rainer Veil. ‘Negative Space’ is a highlight, a spacious rhythm clattering over a synth abyss.

Andy Stott
Passed Me By / We Stay Together

Andy Stott is big big news these days, which makes this a good time to revisit some of the sterling work he was doing before he rose in prominence. Turns out: it was great. Two albums reissued on 2 CDs from Modern Love, and at just a shade over a tenner for an hour and forty minutes of premium Stott, it’s hard to dispute.
