Helado Negro
This Is How You Smile

Twelve new songs from Helado Negro, full of intimacy and personality. This Is How You Smile might remind some of Arthur Russell, due to its homespun feel, its mixture of heartfelt songcraft and dance elements, and its general quality and loveliness. Yay! This Is How You Smile is released by RVNG Intl.

Michele Mercure
Beside Herself

RVNG Intl collects some of Michel Mercure’s early minimal synth and experimental electronics compositions. All of the tunes that make up Beside Herself were initially issued on cassettes self-released by Mercure between 1983 and 1990. These lo-fi ditties will appeal to fans of Pauline Anna Storm and The Nightcrawlers.

Colin Self
Siblings

RVNG Intl. brings you New York / Berlin artist Colin Self’s sixth and ultimate chapter in his Elation opera series. As you might expect from a pop opera, it’s conceptual, richly detailed and highly nuanced. It also features plenty of good singing. The main idea is that of familial closeness and kinship arising from mutual curiosity and care rather than biological association. Uplifting stuff.

Tashi Wada With Yoshi Wada & Friends
FRKWYS Vol. 14 – Nue

Yoshi Wada opened up experimental music to entire new ways of approaching structure and timbre; a player of bagpipes, band leader and sound designer, his work has been commanding and uncompromising. His son, Tashi Wada, is a composer in his own right, and the two have here collaborated on a record of explorations into the subliminal and subconscious potential of music. They're joined by an absolute belter of a line-up, including Julia Holter, Corey Fogel and Cole MGN. Get excited.

Oliver Coates
Shelley’s On Zenn-La

The two-step Arthur Russell returns with his first solo full-length since 2016’s fantastic Upstepping. What Oliver Coates is really good at is not letting his prodigious abilities get in the way of creating music of great body and motion. Again focussing on cello and production, Coates has melody, rhythm and harmony in perfect balance once more on Shelley’s On Zenn-La. Out via RVNG Intl. (Visible Cloaks, Hieroglyphic Being).

Lucrecia Dalt
Anticlines

RVNG Intl. (Visible Cloaks, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith) release the sixth LP from Colombian experimentalist Lucrecia Dalt. Drawing on her experience in geotechnical engineering as well as South American monster myths and geological phenomena, Dalt has created an album of curious, inquisitive electronic songs. Inga Copeland and Holly Herndon are invoked, albeit in a more skeletal guise, on the likes of ‘Tar’.

Kate NV
Для For

The latest release from RVNGIntl. is the second LP from Moscow sonic experimentalist Kate NV. Much like new label mates Visible Cloaks, Sugai Ken and Holly Herndon, Для For makes for a challenging but fun listen. There’s a psychotropic element to NV’s music that provides an easy access route to these playful sound portraits. Some of it recalls a more avant rendering of Glasser’s Ring. The eponymous track appeared on RVNGIntl.’s 2017 LQBTQI+ benefit LP Peaceful Protest.

Mark Renner
Few Traces

Not a lot of people have heard Mark Renner’s material from between the years 1982 and 1990, but now RVNG Intl invite you to join those limited numbers. Few Traces surveys Renner’s homemade post-punk, occasionally new-romantic sound, with highlights from albums mingling with compilation tracks and never-before-released cuts. CD and Double LP editions.

Pauline Anna Strom
Trans-Millenia Music

The last few years have seen the rediscovery of a lot of music that had been unjustly neglected due to association with the New Age tag. The work of Pauline Anna Strom is a prime example: though driven by highly subjective cosmic concepts, her ambient but melodic music transcends crystals’n’yoga cliché. Losing her sight in childhood didn’t prevent her digging deep into the arcane complexities of synths such as the Yamaha DX7. Hers is a verdant, varied and exploratory soundworld, and her compositions display meticulousness and rigour. This double LP (or single CD) comp is drawn from a trio of 80s albums. Recommended for fans of Suzanne Ciani, Popol Vuh and Klaus Schulze.
  • CD (RERVNG10CD)

Visible Cloaks
Lex

Fabulous abstract ambient pop music for digital robots here on Visible Cloaks’ new record. Lex was composed through various process of software randomisation, creative uses of MIDI, and texts fed and re-fed through so many language translation processes that a new un-language has been formed. Eerie but soothing audio oddities grounded in the hyperreal digital now.
  • Vinyl LP (RVNGNL44)

Sugai Ken
UkabazUmorezU

With needlepoint precision and a crystal clear veneer, Sugai Ken brings his dynamic yet delicate tapestries of artificial and organic sound to Rvng Intl. His previous outings on EM Records and Lullabies For Insomniacs have helped shine a light on the illustrious sound design feats the Kanagawa, Japan-based artist is capable of. This album builds on that reputation with some startling excursions into audio collage.

Greg Fox
The Gradual Progression

Most will know Greg Fox as the drummer from bands such as Liturgy, Zs, Ex Eye, and Guardian Alien. Needless to say his drumming extends well beyond proficient, and on his second solo album takes this to an Nth degree, working with several musicians and using sensors on his kit to trigger and manipulate sound sources. Think Charles Hayward on speed, listening to jazz.

Helado Negro
Private Energy (Expanded)

In receiving its first vinyl pressing, an Expanded version of Private Energy has come some way since its original release on small cassette. Whilst everything about the electronic landscape has evolved and developed, this revitalised brainchild of Helado Negro still has a firmly lodged place on the horizon.

Bing & Ruth
Tomorrow Was The Golden Age

This one's important for fans of plaintive instrumental rock action and neo-classical hibernation: pianist David Moore leads the band Bing & Ruth into making minimalist pieces that meditate for a seemingly endless time. 'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' is focused around his resounding piano performance, much in the fashion of Steve Reich or Dustin O'Hallaran. 'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' is that good kind of ambient vibe: modest, unobtrusive, but forceful at the same time.

Visible Cloaks
Reassemblange

Visible Cloaks present a suite of digital shimmer-music, pulling globally-sourced sounds apart into tiny strands and then weaving them together into new ambient forms, using chance operations and MIDI magic along the way. The duo’s second full-length album Reassemblage is released by the RVNG Intl. label.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani
FRKWYS Vol. 13: Sunergy

Synth maestro of the present meets synth maestro of the past AND present in the next chapter of the intergenerational FRKWYS series from RVNG Intl. Since they've both twiddled, bleeped and blooped for the good of all things vibrant, textural and chill, this promises to be a wondrous and rich collaboration.

Syrinx
Tumbles from The Vault

Syrinx were an experimental Canadian ensemble who worked in tape manipulation, synthesis and DIY electronics into melodic pseudo-chamber music, successfully coming up with a strange hybrid sound that still sounds unusual. Tumbles From The Vault presents everything they ever recorded, including some never-before-released stuff, on 2 CDs or 3 LPs (plus an RVNG Intl. label sampler!).

Anna Homler and Steve Moshier
Breadwoman & Other Tales

A project as unusual as its name, Breadwoman & Other Tales is a collaboration between Anna Homler and Steve Moshier, each veterans of the performative avant-garde. Homler inhabits the voice of Breadwoman with wordless chants, supported by Moshier’s tweaking. Like traditional music of some unknown culture. Vinyl LP, released on RVNG Intl.

Mikael Seifu
Zelalem

Zelalem by Mikael Seifu is Ethiopian traditional music expressed through electronic sounds. On this vinyl 12” from RVNG Intl. Seifu fuses instruments from Ethiopia’s diverse jazz and folk music, such as the Masenko and the Krar, with synthesizer drones and modern sequencing. A stunning piece of drone-jazz fusion.

Bing & Ruth
City Lake

The full length debut from avant-ambienters Bing & Ruth is treated to an expanded reissue. City Lake takes in the exquisite piano work of David Moore, nestling the reverb-drenched tones amidst clarinet, cello and vocals for a luxuriously engulfing piece of work. Out on CD and 2LP vinyl from RVNG Intl.

Hieroglyphic Being & J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Buhl
We Are Not The First

Wow, if anybody ever wanted to see what could be achieved if Hieroglyphic Being expanded his consciousness into a collective hive-mind, here is the answer. His so-called J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Bul assembles a cast of remarkable musicians including Marshall Allen, Shelly Hirsch and Greg Fox: together, they have assembled this 2LP epic of free-electronic-space-synth-jazz-dance.

Savant
Artificial Dance

Savant has titled this record Artificial Dance, which is an interesting choice given that the music it contains is a lot less ‘artificial’ than plenty I’ve heard. Although loops and samples are clearly in play here, the instrumental tracks at the core of these pieces sound very much human, especially with the keen focus on interesting flaws. On RVNG International.

Blondes
Persuasion

Blondes kick in with a new, triple-track EP: Persuasion, on RVNG International. Electronic club adventures, improvised out of gear they know inside-out. That live, fresh feel really energises the techno they come up with, and takes it into some surprising territory. A very dynamic set of tracks, pressed to 12” vinyl.

Stellar OM Source
Nite-Glo

‘Nite-Glo’ is the latest release from Stellar OM Source, the musical brainchild of French born electro producer and visual artist Christelle Gauldi. Gauldi’s unique voice comes from the bridge between her formal training in electroacoustic composition and her coming up through the DIY electro synth scene of the 2000’s. Her compositions are both rhythmically meditative and powerfully emotionally mindful with an incredibly delicate sense of space.

Ariel Kalma
An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979)

Ariel Kalma's warm new age tones conveyed more depth and precision than your average artist working towards ambient bliss. His work combined multiple disciplines that jarred and modulated otherwise still life soundscapes -- jazz and poetry were often present, as well as his constant, sustained electronic work. 'An Evolutionary Music' shows his purposely anonymous and ambiguous music upfront.

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe & Ariel Kalma
FRKWYS Vol. 12: We Know Each Other Somehow

‘We Know Each Other Somehow’ is a collection of original compositions by Robert Aiki Aubery Lowe (aka Lichens) and French born, multi genre composer Ariel Kalma. Recorded in a remote area on the outskirts of the Eastern Australian coast, the album consists of two electronic synthesised compositions of ambient spiritual exploration.

Palmbomen II
Palmbomen II

Holland is famous for many things, but not for its palm trees. Palmbomen is hard at work at changing that, palmboom being Dutch for palm tree. His second album of electronica and sound collage is due for release in March, and, if we can believe the suggestion that is Leo Danzinger’s introduction above, it should be one hell of a sophomore effort.

Craig Leon
Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1: Nommos / Visiting

RIYL: Steve Reich, Brian Eno, Cluster, 4th World Music, Extraterrestrial Musicology. The first - and only - Craig Leon-approved reissue of his two solo albums Nommos and Visiting.  Craig Leon’s seminal synthesizer albums Nommos and Visiting are finally re-editioned in definitive form as the Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1 for RVNG Intl.’s archival series. Issued respectively by John Fahey’s Takoma record label in 1980 and Leon’s Arbitor private press in 1982, Nommos and Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio wizard Craig Leon. Leon’s production was pivotal in realizing the debut recordings by Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell and Suicide. While those albums broke ground in new worlds of sound, Leon’s own debut album was arguably, if not literally, more alien. 

The Body
I Shall Die Here

When a band called The Body releases an album called I Shall Die Here, we can’t help but to think of an old man being told by his body that his time is up. Of course, this imagery isn’t wholly undeserved, as The Body have been stretching up the extremities of doom, death and black metal for over a decade.

Gardland
Improvisations EP

With rapidly palpitating kicks over polyrhythmic clunks and tones, Gardland’s new 12” EP is not one for easy listening. Taken off a live performance on Australian radio, Improvisation is a collection of challenging loops, beats and, occasionally, melodies. Ozzies at their most experimental, perhaps.

Harald Grosskopf
Synthesist

Berlin, Germany, summer of 1979, Harald Grosskopf, then 30 years old, was at a personal and creative crossroads. His girlfriend just left him, and Ashra (Manuel Göttsching's "solo" project) was on temporary hiatus. Harald always considered himself a rhythmic accomplice to his numerous collaborators' lead, until prompted by some fellow musician friends to pursue a singular creative vision.Armed with a MiniMoog and Revox reel-to-reel, Grosskopf set off for the West German countryside that fall and isolated himself in a home studio for almost two months to record Synthesist. The temperamental analog synthesizer and sequencing technology created a long learning curve eventually resulting in a harmonious union of man and machine.The human response undeniably colors the eight songs of Synthesist and aligns the album with some of the more melodic output of the Berlin School of Electronic Music. The title track and "Transcendental Overdrive" almost take on pop qualities. Harald's live percussion opens up tracks like "So Weit, So Gut" and "Emphasis" for jammed out exploration. Where the album veers into the ambient space clusters of "B. Aldrian" or "Trauma", it's hard not to consider Synthesist the nexus of Krautrock, Kosmische, and New Age.
