Albrecht La'Brooy
Healesville

Albrecht La’Brooy is Australian electronic duo Sean La’Brooy and Alex Albrecht. Their new album of improvised gentle ambient sounds, Healesville, was recorded in a mud brick hut among a field of growing strawberries in Melbourne. The hut provided acoustically warm environment for the pair to make their music. At times, you can hear tractors and strawberry pickers talking on the recordings.  

Synkro
Images

My word how often did I listen to that last Synkro album Changes? Too many times. One of the nicest tracks on it was one of the most ambient so it's encouraging to see him veer into more ambient territories for this new LP. Like many Joe McBride has become immersed in vintage synths and explores them fully here. Could be a good one this.

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need us to introduce this one to you. The album that broke Aphex Twin to the masses (relatively speaking), Selected Ambient Works 85-92 starts with two genuinely sublime pieces of music, ‘Xtal’ and ‘Tha’, which your collection literally cannot be without. The whole thing is great though, whether for solo listening late at night or for esoteric dancefloors. An absolute classic.

bvdub
Drowning in Daylight

The illustrious esquires at Apollo represent sadcore-ambient titan bvdub’s label of the week for Drowning in Daylight, a quadrilogy of teary twenty-minute longuns with right poetic titles. Now passing the thirty album mark, Brock Van Wey can be counted on for the skills to pay the bills and give your ears some cinematic thrills.

Paul Frick
Second Yard Botanicals

Known to many as one third of Brandt Brauer Frick, Paul Frick finally gets his debut LP release via Apollo records. Yes, although Frick has released a handful of EPs over recent years and made music for over twenty years, Second Yard Botanicals is the Berliner's first full-length under his own steam. Well, he finally buckled down and got on with it, and aren't we glad; Frick used an assortment of instruments as well as his own field recordings and dissected breakbeats to craft a sonic collage infused with eclecticism and classical influences, interwoven with fragile melodies drawing on the poetry he takes in every day. Wowzers.

Glenn Astro & Hodini
Turquoise Tortoise

Collaborative weird funk album from Glenn Astro and Hodini. Collaborative might be a bit misleading as the distance between Berlin and Cologne meant the pair worked on these tracks separately. Turquoise Tortoise becomes one in their constant referencing of each other's tracks. Released on Apollo.

Synkro
Memories (2008-2011)

Synkro's 2015 debut 'Changes' was an excellent slab of evocative electronica that no Burial loving household should be without. While Joe McBride does all he can to live up to this claim with a new record it's time to have a retrospective of his earlier work. These tracks show his formative years spent weaving warm sonics and emotional melodies into a satisfactory whole. 

Lahun
Slow Love EP

After remixing Lakker on R&S, Lahun has been snapped up by Apollo. Open and sparse but filled with texture and soul, his work falls around James Blake and J Dilla with a palette affected by a 90s rave scene background. Huge developing pads, slow shuffles, and with Sara Garvey soul cutting vocals on the opening track to settle you in for some slow grooves.

Gacha
Send Two Sunsets

Send Two Sunsets is no less than the first full length release of Gacha, a producer with a fondness for low-key semi-ambience. His work fits very well with guest vocalist Natalie Beridze, often singing at a level scarcely above a whisper. Limited edition vinyl in a fetching shade of blue, on the Apollo label.

Eskmo
Sol

Available as a CD or on limited white double vinyl LP through R&S sublabel Apollo. Written and produced at his home studio in Los Angeles Eskmo utilises field samples from the US and around the world as well dipping into string arrangements. Wanting to focus around a narrative Eskmo has created something between Arthur Russell and a strung out Son Lux.

Cloud Boat
Model Of You

Cloud Boat is production duo Tom Clarke and Sam Ricketts, making minimalist and reflective dubstep by the way of Burial and Distance. 'Model of You' is their second record in as many years, produced by Andy Savours of shoegaze and post-rock fame (My Bloody Valentine, Sigur Ros and The Horrors).    Tracks: Prelude Hideaway Carmine Portraits Of Eyes Bricks Are For The Glow Golden Lights Aurelia Thoughts In Mine Told You  All Of My Years Hallow
