The Quiet Temple
The Last Opium Den (On Earth)

Lead single from The Quiet Temple’s forthcoming debut album. Duke Garwood and Soulsavers’ Richard Machin’s merry band of players, made up of an ever-changing collection of musicians like Julian Cope, Spiritualized and Stereolab, prioritise improvisation to synthesise the underground sleaze of the world’s last opium den.

Alessandro Cortini
AVANTI

After collaborations with Merzbow and Daniel Avery, Alessandro Cortini (Modwheelmood, Nine Inch Nails) moves to The Point Of Departure for his third solo full length album. AVANTI is Cortini writing the soundtrack to found Super 8 film footage made by his grandfather. Huge walls of synths rise like an orchestra with a retro fuzz, think first album by Blanck Mass meets nostalgia.

Nico Casal
Alone

Most known for his work in film composition, Nico Cascal strikes out on his own terms with this debut LP Alone, luscious piano minimalism meeting subtle flourishes of electronic manipulation. Cascal is patient in his attempts to achieve his compositional aims, creating subtle music out of looping repetition and a love of the understatement.

Ed Harcourt
Beyond The End

Famed for writing exquisite pop songs that plough similar furrows to Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson on albums such as Here Be Monsters before turning his hand to being songwriter to the stars, Ed Harcourt follows his expansive major label debut, Furnaces (2016), with a real curveball. Beyond The End is an album of piano-led instrumentals, with inspiration taken from Saite, Mozart, Debussy, Max Richter, Philip Glass and Warren Ellis all imbued with Harcourt’s melodic and mournful sensibilities. LP and CD on Point Of Departure.
