Clem Leek
Lifenotes

This appears to be Clem Leek's "24 Postcards in Colour" with around twice the amount of tracks as his lovely collection for Hibernate. Unfurling with sombre wisps of drift, piano flourishes and a Morse code track that I never want to fade out, I'm reminded heavily of the Le Lendemain CD ...view item »

Matt Bartram
Moments Before

Matt Bartram, who has had a decent stint with both Air Formation and with You Walk Through Walls, is an accomplished master of hazy shoegaze-pop. Moments Before is a particularly strong set of his solo material, with a gorgeous sweeping feeling and occasional crashing distortion amongst...view item »

When The Clouds
The Longed For Season

This is the work of Francesco Galano and is a very strong debut 6 track EP. In may ways it's like a more subtle electronic take on post rock, it hass the same feelings and sense of drama. He uses glockespeil, fender rhodes and no doubt a computer to paint his sonic pictures and you'd be forgiven for thinking this was created by multiple play...view item »

Gareth Dickson
Collected Recordings

Originally released in 2009 by Drifting/Falling records, ‘Collected Recordings’ is a testament to what can be achieved with deliberately limited instrumentation and production. Using only an acoustic guitar, economical vocals and the most tasteful amount of reverb, Gareth Dickson has created a beautifully simplistic ambient folk reco...view item »

Zazie Von Einem Anderen Stern
Regen: Tropfen

The first time I heard this I thought it was ace. I rarely get that these days. My attention span is so short that by the time an album is half way through I forget what I'm listening to. Maybe that's an age thing though? I'm gonna call her Zazie for the rest of the review as her name is a bit of a gobful and it's gonna save my fingers a bit of ...view item »

Matt Bartram
The Dreaming Invisible

You may know Matt Bartram's name if you're a fan of his main squeeze - Air Formation, a band that make Shoegaze music like it's going out of fashion. Bartram is generally regarded as one of the finest musicians to embrace the second wave of Shoegaze and make it his own. Always keen to sta...view item »


Kontakte
We Move Through Negative Spaces

This reminds me a little (or possibly a great deal, simultaneously) of Maps, early Mogwai, EITS, 65daysofstatic & Epic 45. Their last effort was a motorik Krauty affair but this is all proper "epic guitar cathedral walls", whispering, fluttery electronics & galloping, stomping, clattering drum machines with stately arpegiated guitar line...view item »


Pawn
Islet EP

Pawn is the work of Japanese ambient purest Hideki Umezawa. This 3" CD collects his early works, dating from 2007-'09, performed using piano, glassharp, guitar, synthesizer and field recordings. A student of the piano from an early age, Umezawa's ears and mind are clearly attuned to the subtleties needed to compose great ambient work outs. These...view item »

Damian Valles
Skeleton Taxa

Damian Valles hasn't been releasing solo music for a very long time. Only since around 2009 I think, however I suspect he's been honing his sound for quite some time (in between playing in various bands over the past decade) as his previous releases on Hibernate, Under The Spire, Standard Form and now Drifting F...view item »

Kontakte
Soundtrack To Lost Road Movies

Kontakte have a CD out on the Drifting Falling label this week. It's been a strong label so far with top releases by Televise, Opressed By The Line, Matt Batram and lots more I'm too lazy to mention. If you're not familiar with the labels sound then I'll tell you. It's for the more shoegazey and etheral types and this new Kontakte CD fits in perfec...view item »

Televise
Sometimes Splendid Confusion

Televise have a cracking mini album out on the Drifting Falling label. We were so enamored with their last single we gave it single of the week! Ex Slowdiver, Ex Charlottes (worra band!) Simon Scott comes up trumps again with this post shoegaze, atmospheric glitchathon. This is well lush..... Why Ulrich Schnauss is massive and this guy isn't is a m...view item »

Superbug EP

London based 'bliss-rockers' Kontakte have a newie out this week, a three track ltd (100 copies) CD on Drifting Falling recordings. Now, I'm not familiar with their output so you'll have to excuse any ignorance on my part. I expected something more in the Drifting Falling shoe-gazy vein but this has more in common with the epic post rock shenani...view item »

Televise
Strings And Wires

I’m well into this Drifing Falling label. The 2 x CD we got the other week were ace (Cheer and My Kappa Roots). Here’s a new CD by ex Charlottes, Ex Slowdive guy Televise. He’s had releases out on Club AC30 and this is his new 6 track EP. This is totally lush and an instant comparison is the Epic 45 Drakelow EP in it’s grandeur. The opene...view item »

Matt Bartram
Arundel

Also on Drifting Falling is a marvelous CD by Matt Bartram from the band Air Formation. This is some proper old school shoegazing with hypnotic guitars... at times it's a bit rocky and there's a healthy dose of Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized in there. It's very uplifting and rousing, and I am rather enjoying the walls of guitars I can hear every so o...view item »

My Kappa Roots
The House Of St Colme Burnt Down

Now Kappa Roots with The House Of St Colne Burnt Down. Folk music from north of the border in that drifty James Yorkston, Alasdair Roberts camp. They're a retrospective bunch up there....some say deep, some say miserable... Very thoughtful and pretty acoustic guitar work with occasional smooth vocals. Sounds a bit Adrian Crowley, Smog. A ...view item »

Matt Bartram
Left to Memory

Time for some classic shoegaze sounds! Air Formation's Matt Bartram has a new solo venture called Left to Memory and, barring the odd little telltale production sign, it'd be a really hard one to date if you were listening to it blind. Some of these tracks could very easily have belonged to the very first wave of bands inspired by Spacemen 3 (parti...view item »


Taro Kawasaki
Sing Me A Song EP

Before I take another shower I'll tell you about a CD that is equally as sweet... A lovely 3 inch disc on Drifting Falling from Taro Kawasaki.'Sing Me A song EP' is a playfully curious 4 tracker of sparkling bell tinkles, gently plucked acoustic guitar melodies and sparse beats. There are hints of abstraction, but the melodies win the tussle in the...view item »

Oppressed By The Line
Kiku

Oppressed By The Line AKA Jonathan Thompson has his second (I think) CD out on drifting Falling. As soon as I hit play the silky tones and soothing vocals are caressing my ears. According to the sleeve notes the songs were written at various locations in Japan during the summer of 2006. He's certainly captured some of the spirit of his travels into...view item »

Oppressed By The Line
Soft Focus

Trying to excersise my mind muscles this morning with Oppressed by the Line's 'Soft Focus' CD. It's a fine collection of wistful electronic pop songs with an old skool heart, constructed with modern technology. Passages of enveloping, caressing sound make me think of a less Radiohead indebted Julian Fane. Waves of warm yet melancholic sound tussle ...view item »


Mole Harness, Various
Vacant Passages Volume One

Drifting Falling is doing a fine job of pumping some highly melodic contemporary shoegaze material into the ether of recent times. On 'Vacant Passages', you get a label sampler of sorts with 4 artists contributing. Oppressed by the Line has a slice of hazy dreampop on offer -I'd go more into detail but just check his album out, it's great. I descri...view item »

Cheer
Red Walk

On the same label and not dissimilar we have Cheer with Red Walk. It instantly sounds more experimental with building sounds behind the finger picked acoustic guitar. The guitars Chime in a James Blackshaw style with many over dubbed guitar lines creating quite a hypnotic medieval trance like moment. Be good for ear phones this one as its got ...view item »
