Ka Baird
Respires

The second studio album from Ka Baird successfully manage to bottle the spellbinding energy of her live performances, particularly her uncompromising vocal techniques. Respires was formulated over the course of the last 12 months and distils all manner of global influences into its eight-track running order. 

Peter Ivers
Becoming Peter Ivers

Peter Ivers is one of those people who everybody in the world of music seemed to know, but he was virtually unknown to the general public. A songwriter whose principal instrument was the harmonica, he was described by Muddy Waters as the greatest harp player alive. He’s opened for the New York Dolls, John Cale and Fleetwood Mac. 'Becoming Peter Ivers' is a compilation of his work, lovingly compiled by RVNG Intl. Ivers was, tragically, the victim of a violent murder in 1983. The case, sadly, remains unsolved.

Dylan Moon
Only The Blues

Dylan Moon is the perfect name for someone who makes music like this. Only The Blues, the Californian artist’s debut LP, is a set of dreamy bedroom guitar pieces. The manner in which Moon’s quiet voice dips in and out of the textures here is pitched somewhere between Arthur Russell, Nick Drake and R.E.M. - which is to say that Only The Blues is a lovely listen.

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.

Emily A. Sprague
Water Memory / Mount Vision

Two self-released (2017, 2018) albums by LA composer-synthesist and songwriter Emily A. Sprague come together as one in a neat RVNG Intl. re-release. Aptly titled, the pieces on Water Memory comprise gently lapping phrases on piano and synth, while Mount Vision harnesses loops and drones for markedly more bucolic soundscapery.

Craig Leon
Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon

Craig Leon (who produced the first Ramones and Suicide albums!) revisits the ideas he established on his 80s records. Along with regular collaborator Cassell Webb, Leon explores the abstract and the alien to near euphoric effect. Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon has been a long time coming. It was worth the wait. On RVNG Intl.

Visible Cloaks with Yoshio Ojima and Satsuki Shibano
FRKWYS Vol. 15: serenitatem

Oregon electronic/ambient duo Visible Cloaks in a Transpacific partnership. Joined by Japanese modern ambient composers Yoshio Ojima, from Kankyo Ongaku fame, and Satsuki Shibano, this quartet has created a beautiful album packed with mallets, rich synthesizers, and lush pads. Beautiful intercontinental collaboration to stretch your ears.

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 RVNG Intl. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!).
