Sam Amidon
I See the Sign

Sam Amidon. He's a NY resident on Iceland's quite wonderful Bedroom Community. This is his 4th full length, his second for the Puffin munchers (old Sugarcubes media in-joke) The first song here is bloody astonishing. Like a dreamy blend of Bill Callahan & Jose Gonzalez, 'How Come That Blood ' mashes hypnotic trad folk elements, electronics...view item »


Nadia Sirota
Tessellatum

Tessellatum is the title of the new album by Nadia Sirota, who performs violin on the film soundtrack, composed by Donnacha Dennehy.

Valgeir Sigurdsson
Architecture Of Loss

So this guy has been around the block a bit...did the strings on Feist’s album, worked with Damon Albarn on his Dr Dee folly. This is apparently his third album, I’ve yet to hear...view item »


Jodie Landau / Wild Up
You Of All Things

An incredibly confident debut from composer, vocalist, and percussionist Jodie Landau. A cunning blend of rigid composition and spontaneity, You Of All Things features long-time Björk collaborators Graduale Nobili providing haunting vocal accompaniment.

Valgeir Sigurdsson
Ekvilibrium

Valgeir Sigurosson: 'Ekvilibrium' (Bedroom Community), Where crunchy beats, electroid textures meet the glacial, icey tinkles and tingles of strings, music boxes, prepared pianos and harps with the odd smattering of heartbreaking balladry courtesy of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Faun Fables' Dawn McCarthy, & J. Walker A.K.A Machine Translations. Here...view item »

Valgeir Sigurdsson
Draumalandid

Icelandic producer and composer Valgeir Sigurdsson follows his Ekvilibrium album with another for Bedroom Community in the form of 'Draumalandid' and what a gentle and tender piece of work it is. Delicate melodies are interwoven with cinematic modern classical strings and piano. In many ways it feels like a soundtrack and there is a wonderful sense...view item »


Puzzle Muteson
Theatrics

Puzzle Muteson is an English songwriter who likes to pluck, pick and strum -- and leave it at that. His latest record, 'Theatrics', was made with the help of an all-star cat, including Nico Muhly and producing hero Valgeir Sigurðsson. 'Theatrics' is the follow-up to Puzzle Muteson's debut record, 'En Garde', and continues to follow his trend...view item »

Puzzle Muteson
En Garde

"I thought it was a woman but it's a bloody bloke". So said a million dads as Boy George first appeared on Top of the Pops. I had the same revelation with this wonderful new 7" on Bedroom Community. I had it down as a kooky woman from Sweden, instead its a bloke from the Isle of Wight with a particular high pitch tenor somewhere between Nick...view item »


Paul Corley
Disquiet

This is the debut album from American composer, engineer and sound recordist. His CV looks pretty tidy as he’s previously appeared on records by Ben Frost, Valgeir Sigurðsson and Tim Hecker so clearly the man...view item »


Nico Muhly
Drones

This isn't quite the drone-fest I was anticipating from this Vermonter. His work is stationed within more abstract/avant-classical fields, primarily piano/string based, so the opening pieces appear as jarring plink 'n' clunk-scapes with a hovering wistful string drone that meanders in the...view item »

Nadia Sirota & Nico Muhly
Keep In Touch

Modern classical wunderkind Nico Muhly has written a full-blown viola concerto, recorded here by violist Nadia Sirota with the backing of The Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Apparently Keep In Touch was designed to challenge the performer into engaging with their weaknesses (mean Mr ...view item »

James McVinnie
Cycles

Out on the Bedroom Community label, this is James McVinnie, a master of the pipe organ in more ways than one. ‘Cycles’ is a project led by McVinnie and featuring a few friends, Nadia Sirota on Violin, Chris Thompson on Marimba and Simon Wall on Tenor, a journe...view item »

Daniel Bjarnason
Processions

God it is an impressive week for modern classical music. This bugger is an absolute soul stirring MONSTER from the word go! Big striding cellos speed walk down a bustling cobbled street whist violin type creatures attack passers by from the air, the amount of bravado & forcefulness in this music is remarkable. Then there's some seriously gracef...view item »

Ben Frost & Daniel Bjarnason
Solaris

I've only seen the film of Solaris once but, like another Tarkovsky classic 'Stalker', it lingers in your mind long after, a strange, eerie meditative experience. This is the work of two contemporary avant-producers, one in particular clutching onto an ascending star at the moment. After the chilling, foreboding  growl-fest of...view item »

Ben Frost
The Wasp Factory

Iain Banks’ novel The Wasp Factory is a fairly brutal work to begin with, so just imagine what an operatic adaptation directed by famously intense sound artist Ben Frost might be like? This record contains Frost’s original soundtrack, where vocalists and a string ensemble ar...view item »


Crash Ensemble
Ghosts

Crash Ensemble are a combination of some Ireland’s most promising and already acclaimed neo-classical instrumentalists. Ghosts is a four piece CD including music written by Iceland’s Valgeir Sigurðsson. This record is played with...view item »


Ben Frost
By The Throat

This new Ben Frost album is well tasty. It took me a while to get into the last one but when I did it blew me away. 'By the Throat' is quite similar in the way it doesn't immediately hit you. I've heard it a few times now and it's really quite fantastic. Dark droney, doomy fuzzy atmospherics which suck you in to Mr Frosty's dark world of doomy fuzz...view item »

Bedroom Community
Everything Everywhere All The Time / The Whale Watching Tour

Imagine my surprise when I opened this, expecting (as it comes housed in a silver, glittery baggy) some sort of 'Space ice cream' (remember that stuff that we used to buy at the museum that seemed so exotic and interesting), but instead of Neapolitan flavoured chalk, There was an interesting, thought-provoking documentary on one of the more inte...view item »
