Cucina Povera & ELS
The Oystercatcher

Cucina Povera - Finnish-born sound artist and vocalist Maria Rossi and ELS - the name under which Edward Simpson of Circuit Breaker makes introspective electronica have joined forces to create The Oystercatcher. It is an album of boiled down improvisations, culled from a two day recording session in London, inspired by a Tove Jansson short Story.

France Jobin
Death Is Perfection, Everything Else Is Relative

Like perhaps a lot of us, France Jobin has got pretty obsessed by death in recent times going so far as to dominating the press release with a lengthy splurging theory about parallels between shadow photons and death. It's beyond me I have to admit but this album follows a series of tragedies in Jobin's life and sees the minimalist composer and sound structuralist record a series of modular synth compositions in various locations. 

Electric Indigo
Ferrum

Electric Indigo (aka Susanne Kirchmayr) here explores the richness of various forms of metal by recording the sounds and manipulating them into percussive and undulating pieces. The results are meditative collection full of motion and resonance. Not without pattern, percussion and resulting in a strangely danceable work.

Chra
Seamons

Progressive ambient music from Austrian sound artist Christina Nemec, otherwise known as Chra. Recorded over a period of nearly two years and mastered by Russell Haswell, Seamons is a peculiarly enervating and immediate listening experience despite none of the musical elements being obvious in their intentions.

C. Lavender
Myth Of Equilibrium

C. Lavender practices sound art and sound healing. She previously worked as an assistant to experimental music trailblazer Pauline Oliveros. Myth of Equilibrium is her third album. It was recorded with two microphones in a geodesic dome in New York’s Catskill Mountains. It melds percussion and drones played on bass guitar and synths.

The Transcendence Orchestra
Feeling The Spirit

Daniel Bean and Anthony Child (Surgeon) relocated The Transcendence Orchestra from Britain to Holland for their second studio album, recording in an old studio in the beautiful city of Den Bosch. Feeling The Spirit continues their quest for the perfect drone which began with Modern Methods For Ancient Rituals. Heading even further into transcendent spiritual realms, their latest soundtrack to your out of body experience has been described as "Like La Monte Young and The Incredible String Band stuck in an elevator."

Kassel Jaeger & Jim O'Rourke
In Cobalt Aura Sleeps

A second, keenly awaited collaboration album from Kassel Jaeger and Jim O'Rourke, following 2017’s Wakes On Cerulean. In Cobalt Aura Sleeps is another magnificent piece of sonic architecture, designed as a space for abstract textures generated by the pair’s blending of electronic and acoustic instruments.

Klara Lewis
Ingrid

Ingrid by Swedish sound artist, Klara Lewis, sees here moving away from the sound of previous records, ‘too’ and ‘Ett’. Ingrid is a long-form piece of experimental music built on a looping cello. It is reminiscent of certain works by William Basinski or Steve Reich but with a Scandanavian black metal sensibility.

Ewa Justka
Upside Down Smile

Polish electronic noise artist Ewa Justka delivers a new studio album, titled Upside Down Smile. Self-taught in terms of how she constructs her instruments, and currently a PhD student at Edinburgh College of Art, her latest effort arrives on Editions Mego, and explores the differences between sadness and happiness via her brand of manic computer music meets hardcore rave/techno.

Finlay Shakespeare
Solemnities

A one-man-band construction, Finlay Shakespeare delivers his second studio album for Editions Mego, titled Solemnities. It’s harsher, darker and more industrial than his previous effort Domestic Economy, but it still retains the joyous stacking of melodic elements that made that debut so critically adored.

Oto Hiax
Two

Oto Hiax are a duo made up of Mark Clifford of Seefeel, and Scott Gordon of Loops Haunt. Two is their aptly named second album of nightmarish, otherworldly sounds. The album’s track titles seem to be onomatopoeic with names like Dapple, Scutter, Strain and Silt. This gives a better idea of the sounds on offer than anything else I could write.

Jasmine Guffond
Microphone Permission

High brow stuff on Editions Mego as Jasmine Guffond which uses source material from various projects including a dance performance about the imagined future sound of a forest. However the concept of this stark and disorientating work is fascinating  - microphone permission being the consent we give to various apps which could lead to 'the man' listening in to our everyday happenings. Terrifying.

François J. Bonnet & Stephen O'Malley
Cylene

Cylene, Cylene, Cylene, Cyleeeeeene, I’m begging you please don’t … hang on a minute, this thing doesn’t sound ANYTHING like Dolly Parton. We should have seen that coming really - an LP helmed by Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley and GRM director François J. Bonnet (aka Kassel Jaeger) was never going to be big on singalongs. It is big on sound, though. Cylene is full of thick, glacial, eerie drones that sit slap-bang in the middle of the uncanny valley.

Dome
4 Will You Speak This Word

B.C. Gilbert and Graham Lewis formed Dome in 1980 once their previous band, Wire, had split. They released four albums in their time, 4 Will You Speak Your Word unsurprisingly being their fourth. It was only ever released as part of a long out of print box set. It is now being reissued as an LP in its own right. Features Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode / Yazoo / Erasure fame on vocals and Fairlight. 

Thomas Brinkmann
Raupenbahn

Veteran German minimal techno producer Thomas Brinkmann returns with a new album exploring the loom, Rauperbahn. It explores the rhythms that come out of human-operated machinery. Using five looms in operation that were built between 1892 and 1972, Brinkmann has created a soundscape with no post production, just the natural sound and rhythm of the looms.

Renaldo & The Loaf
The Elbow Is Taboo / Elbonus

Nothing to do with Sonic Youth's Lee Renaldo (sic), Renaldo & the Loaf are a long running experimental duo who use acoustic instruments to try to replicate synthesized sounds. The Elbow Is Taboo / Elbonus is a vinyl re-press of two of their later works (2010 era) using a huge array of instruments to create unsettling music with some oddball themes.

Pita
Get On

Although he’s got over twenty years of experience in the music industry, Peter Rehberg is only just getting round to making his fourth solo album. As ever, he’s included the word ‘Get’ in the title, and Get On also continues Rehberg’s musical themes of marrying ugly aesthetics with beautiful ones. 

Dino Spiluttini
Heaven

Vienna’s Dino Spiluttini joins the roster of Vienna’s Editions Mego. I wonder often Dino and Peter Rehberg bump into one another at the supermarket. This is an album of powerfully realised neo-church music productions; Spiluttini’s bristling, gnashing style achieves a particularly spiritual grandness in its search for comfort from earthly trials.

Hecker
Inspection II

Editions Mego bring you another round of high-concept computer music from sonic metaphysician Florian Hecker. If I understand correctly, this one takes a (synthetically recited) text and continually resynthesises it based on algorithms modelling human hearing. The result is a model subverted by extremity - masochism, in other words. It sounds like the world’s unhappiest dialup modem.

Oren Ambarchi
Simian Angel

Oren Ambarchi, a man seemingly still in the midst of a years-long artistic peak, presents a new solo album on Editions Mego, although of course this serial collaborator also showcases others in his own work. On Simian Angel, he has Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista join him, with fabulous effect. Ambarchi weaves rich and complex abstracted guitar around the percussion, also at points using piano. Another vital Ambarchi statement.

Cindytalk
A Life Is Everywhere

What a bizarre and unusual career it has been for Cindytalk (aka Gordon Sharp). 30 years into it the collective are still producing uncompromising works that defy categorisation. This 2013 album is par for the course in the Cindytalk journey in being full of noise, drone and textured electronica yet still sounds as though it comes from the distant future.

I-LP-ON
ÄÄNET

He’s half of reputable and influential Finnish electronic agitators Pan Sonic, the other half being the late Mika Vainio. He’s the Finno- bit in Finno-German duo Angel, the -German bit being Dirk “Schneider™” Dresselhaus. They call him Ilpo Väisänen. He especially likes Viennese labels (such as Editions Mego and Kvitnu). This new one for Editions Mego recalls and commemorates Pan Sonic with Väisänen’s own contemporary flair and style - industrial, dub and club in a minimal form quite unlike anything else.

UUUU
s/t

The near-ungooglable UUUU follow up last year’s s/t (not a self-titled record) with this year’s s/t (not a self-titled record). For their latest trick the Coil/Wire/Tomaga supergroup turn in two side-long pieces of avant-rock. There is a dark psychedelia here that will please fans of fellow Editions Mego acts Emeralds and Heather Leigh.

Jung An Tagen
Proxy States

It’s techno, Jim, but not as we know it! The youthful Jung An Tagen returns to Mego with a cassette of “modern composition techniques” squarely aimed at invoking the aesthetic of techno music. With its odd spectral freezing and glistening rhythms, the album will delight lovers of unconventional electronic music and surely make you a big hit at techno parties.

Renaldo & The Loaf
Songs For Swinging Larvae / Songs From The Surgery

2xLP package containing the first proper studio effort from cult experimental heroes Renaldo and the Loaf. Now re-mastered for vinyl, the subversive pop madness of 1981’s Songs For Swinging Larvae helped establish the duo’s underground following, and it’s accompanied here by a new LP of different versions and unheard bonus tracks titled Songs From the Surgery.

Dome
Dome 2

Editions Mego present a well-earned reissue of the second album by Dome. And what, precisely is Dome? Well, that would be Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis of Wire, spinning off on a (yet) more experimental direction, with focus on utilising the studio itself for maximum effect. Dome 2 is essential listening for Wire fans and for everyone else, especially with this fetching remaster by Russell Haswell.

Jung An Tagen
Agent Im Objekt

It’s a question as old as music itself: what happens when conventional club music signifiers are subjected to querying skews, syncopations, minimalisms and new sound designs? Vienna’s Jung An Tagen is member of the week over at the Deconstructin’ Da Club Club. If you’re keen to have your rave cake and stroke your beard too, don’t miss these totally radical dance wonks.

Finlay Shakespeare
Domestic Economy

Domestic Economy is the debut full-length album from Finlay Shakespeare. The Bristolian youngster seems to have a bit of a flair for electro-pop. Respectful nods to New Order and Cabaret Voltaire blended with fresh sounds for the modern age, his skill parallels a musician of greater experience. LP on Editions Mego.

Finlay Shakespeare
Routine

Bristol-based Finlay Shakespeare is new to the Editions Mego label. His Routine EP announces his arrival in no uncertain terms - an electro beast providing a beefed-up blend of AFX, New Order and Cabaret Voltare and techno pop. Mastered by Russell Haswell. 7” on Editions Mego with artwork by Nik Void.

Oneohtrix Point Never
Returnal

Returnal was Daniel Lopatin's fourth album under the Oneohtrix Point Never moniker and originally released in 2010. It was his final album before signing to Warp and was released on Editions Mego who have kindly re-pressed it on gatefold LP. It develops his earlier synth-based music with elements of noise and vocals resulting in a combustible and disorientating record full of mood and tempo shifts. Certainly one of his best transmissions to date.

Heather Leigh
Throne

Editions Mego (Shit & Shine, Oren Ambarchi) drop the latest LP from Heather Leigh (once known as Heather Leigh Murray). Throne is a record of singer-songwriter noir full of dark energy. Leigh commands her tracks with a smouldering intensity that is reminiscent of Wild Beasts’ Hayden Thorpe. The instrumentals also have something of that group about them, though it’s less ‘Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants’ and more the Grouper-ish murk of Present Tense’s ‘New Life’ or Two Dancers’ ‘Underbelly’.

Bastet

LCC (or Las CasiCasiotone) return to Editions Mego with their second full length album. Bastet continues in the experimental ambient vein of D Evolution utilising field recordings and an array of electronic manipulation, this time with focus on human rituals and movement. For fans of Thomas Köner and Jacaszek.

Shit & Shine
Some People Really Know How To Live

With releases on Diagonal, Riot Season, Rocket and, Gangsigns, Shit & Shine are shape shifters with no real defined edges. Happily mixing Thrones avantgarde heaviness with Luke Vibert acid and broken breaks. Some People Really Know How To Live continues their degradation of genres, breaking apart disco and techno beats, modulating machinery until it breaks. LP on Editions Mego.

Typically searing business from Haswell here. Tongue Dancer ‘85 is a single-track, single-sided 12”, limited to 300 copies.

Klara Lewis
Ett

Sinking into the abyss with Klara Lewis. Ett is a the debut full length from the producer. This one is a deep sea odyssey, with Klara delving into expansive sub-60 hertz territory and the grainy upper middle. There are field recorded manipulations, loops, samples and electronics that seamlessly blend the raw matter with the digital to make a whole new thing. Out on vinyl LP from Editions Mego.

Bruce Gilbert
Ex Nihilo

Editions Mego mark their 250th release with a regular contributor to the label - ex-Wire / Dome member Bruce Gilbert. Ex Nihilo encapsulates his signature sonics - harsh, austere, sculptural aural brutalism, hacked into a variety of abstract and alien shapes. The fact that the album is mastered by mischievous extremist synth gremlin Russell Haswell and cut by the exacting Rashad Becker neatly indicates where it lies on the noise continuum.

Oto Hiax
Oto Hiax

Oto Hiax is Mark Clifford of Seefeel and Scott Gordon of Loops Haunt: eg. two proper electronic sound professionals. This record, the debut full-length release of the project, mixes the experimental textural approach typical of the label (Editions Mego) with a love for harmony and melodic elements, resulting in a rich and lovely listen. Double LP release.

BJNilsen
Massif Trophies

Massif Trophies is more of a piece of art than a record, really. Amsterdam based musician BJNilen primarily focuses his work on nature and how it impacts the human mind. Listening through this record you get a real sense of being where he is, and you feel as if you're side by side him going on the same adventure he is on. Available on Vinyl LP and released on Editions Mego.

COH
COHGS

COHGS is a collection of COH material that has crept out in various ways and on various labels over the years. This material is defined by its relatively rare inclusion of vocals and lyrics, from an array of collaborators including Little Annie, John Balance and Peter Christopherson. Various approaches are taken, all adding texture and detail to the mysterious sonic pictures of COH. On Editions Mego.

Chra
On a Fateful Morning

Chra's approach to darker, foreboding electronica gathers far reaching influences together in one pot, transmitting a mysterious yet visceral result to the brain of the listener. Restless circuit chatter is enveloped in shadowy drones which break out into abstract rhythms and bass work, a journey through industry and fog.

The Transcendence Orchestra
Modern Methods For Ancient Rituals

Through a vast array of instruments and processes, in a setting designed to evoke transcendental energies, Anthony Child and Daniel Bean have conjured up a remarkable torch bearer of deep listening. It's a slowly shifting, drone wash of texture and growth that will definitely appeal to fans of Eno, Laraaji and Natural Snow Buildings.

NPVR
33 33

Two torchbearers of electronic sound sculpting come together on Mego, treating us to an album of fine grain sonic manipulation. There's a distinct restraint at play, forming space for the audio information to sit exposed, with cautious drum programming juxtaposed against wild glitches and robotic chatter.
