Judith Hamann
Shaking Studies

Judith Hamann is a Berlin-based Australian cellist and composer. Her music is darkly meditative and utilises the various timbral qualities of the cello. 'Shaking Studies' is Hamann's debut solo album. Full of "shaking and humming", visceral noise, and acoustic irregularities, this record seems so much more than an academic investigation. Out on Blank Forms Editions.

Exotic Sin
Customer's Copy

Exotic Skin are a duo made up of Naima Karlsson and Kenichi Iwasa. They fuse spacey jazz and weirdo minimal electronics. Naima Karlsson is the daughter of Neneh Cherry, and therefore the granddaughter of Don and Moki Cherry, whose take on jazz was the inspiration for their new LP Customer’s Copy.

Catherine Christer Hennix
Unbegrenzt

The third in Blank Forms Editions’ series of archival exhumations of unheard work from Swedish composer Catherine Christer Hennix, Unbegrenzt is a re-imagination of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s famous ‘intuitive music’ masterwork from the late Sixties. Recorded in 1974 alongside Hans Isgren, it’s a fascinating document.

Afuma
Songs From The Shore

In Japanese folklore, Afuma indicates a time of day marked by a spiritual or mysterious encounter - this enigmatic band name was elected by the duo of guitarists Taketo Shimada and Stefan Tcherepnin. On 'Songs From The Shore', they create a tremolo-laden offering which opts for spacious and sparse soundscapes.

Patty Waters
Live

Known best for her incendiary deconstruction of ‘Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair’, avant-garde singer and composer Patty Waters is one of the most overlooked icons of her age - perhaps because of the 30-year career hiatus she took between the Sixties and the Nineties. In 2018, she performed a one-off concert in New York titled ‘Blank Forms’, and this release, Patty Waters Live, documents that show. The first side is populated with stark ballads, while the second is full of political yet dignified and moving covers harking back to Waters’ Sixties origins. 

Loren Connors
Unaccompanied Acoustic Guitar Improvisations Vol. 10

Loren Connors has been a prolific maker and documenter of guitar music for many years now; across at least a hundred records spanning four decades in fact. Here is the latest volume -- the tenth! -- a continuation of his unaccompanied acoustic guitar improvisations; he made a series of 9 solo acoustic records under the name of Loren Mazzacane between 1979 and 1980. His delta and country blues style is sounding as spectral and distinctive as it ever did. Limited edition LP on Blank Forms with hand-assembled art covers.
