Deceh / Total Life
Split

Here’s a nice looking split LP on Important by Deceh and Total Life. Deceh have released a handful of releases over the last few years. I’ve only heard the one (the LP on Important) and it was a minimal tonal affair. The flip of this is by Total Life which is Kevin Doria from ...view item »

William Basinski & Richard Chartier
Divertissment

Not sure if two members counts, but this is somewhat of a minimal experimental electronic supergroup. Master of decay William Basinski teams up with Line co-founder Richard Chartier for some introspective, nervous channeling of drifting sound on Important Records. Seeing as three of the instruments they’ve cited are just forms of m...view item »

Newaxeyes
Black Fax

Seattle group NEWAXEYES created a heady brew on their debut LP. Black Fax draws from genres as diverse as doom metal, power electronics, techno and industrial music to create music that is intended to mirror the synaptic-overload of the information age. They get pretty damn close, too - opener ‘False Flag’ i...view item »

Jacob Kirkegaard & Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard
Descending

The premier collaboration between Danish experimental sound art composers Jacob Kirkegaard and Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard is ...view item »

Eleh / Christina Kubisch
Split

Thrilling vinyl split between Christina Kubisch, master harnesser of the electromagnetic field, and the person or persons known only as Eleh, champion of modern minimalist synth. Kubisch interprets the cultural legacy of Nikola Tesla for her side, composing with myriad electromagnetic signals sourced from modern...view item »

Alessandro Cortini & Masami Akita
Untitled

Masami Akita (King Merzbow himself) and Alessandro Cortini (of Nine Inch Nails) both own an EMS Synthi, and this Untitled release finds them each using the EMS exclusively to produce four sides of seething noisy electronics. The vintage analogue equipment is totally exp...view item »

The Mask Of The Imperial Family
The Mask Of The Imperial Family

For almost forty years, the bizarre and innovative self-titled album by Yasuo Sugibayashi’s The Mask of the Imperial Family has existed officially only on 300 vinyl copies. Now, to the delight of aching fans and the disappointment of Discogs touters, the record has finally received the reissue treatment from the aptly-name...view item »

Charlemagne Palestine & Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra
Omminggg & Schlomminggg

Eccentric legend of minimalism Charlemagne Palestine teams up with experimental pop duo Grumbling Fur (in their extra-experimental Time Machine Orchestra mode) for a second time on Omminggg & Schlomminggg, which was recorded in front of a live audience in Copenhagen last year. Piano...view item »

Eleh
Radiant Intervals I

This is the only Eleh recording I own, I bought the original vinyl issue, mainly for the stunning sleeve art, then listened to it one night when I was feeling exceptionally peaceful, the autumn breeze bristling through my window, lights on low, eyes cl...view item »

Growing
Disorder

As electronic weirdos Growing enter their fifteenth year, they offer up their ninth album, their first in a fair while. Disorder moves with sinister authority and simmering vibes. It is also almost impossible to google-search for an album named D...view item »

Overtone Ensemble
Overtone Ensemble

Exactly what it says on the tin. An ensemble that coaxes out the overtones from everyday or ‘non-musical’ objects. It’s all music really. Overtone (pretty much) means just one of the frequencies that makes up a sound, but I guess the name ‘Sound Group’ doesn’t have the same highbrow air. So far there h...view item »

L A N D
Anoxia

Brooding electro-acoustics from L A N D here, shifting and shuffling along with a myriad of percussions, guitars, shakuhachis… Anoxia is a curious thing, generating a landscape that sounds chilly and hostile, yet remarkably tempting. Mixed crystal clearly by Ben Frost, the album is released by Im...view item »

Charlemagne Palestine & Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra
Ggrrreeebbbaaammmnnnuuuccckkkaaallloooww!!!

Vinyl document of a mind-blowing collaborative set from the legendary brandy swiggin’ Teddy Bear man and Alexander Tucker and Daniel O’Sullivan’s Grumbling Fur. Recorded at their 2013 performance at the Transmissions Festival, Ravenna, the trio sound lik...view item »

Duane Pitre
Bayou Electric

This latest album from once-sk8r boi Duane Pitre is a lofty endeavour, acting as a conclusive chapter in a trilogy that began with ‘Feel Free’ and ‘Bridges’. Composed as a whole suite for synth, field recordings, violin, cello and field recordings (all cycled around in custom software), Bayou Electric has a renewe...view item »

Mark Rogers + Mary Byrne
I Line My Days Along Your Weight

Debut album from the duo of Mark Rogers + Mary Byrne. They’ve used a barrage of interesting old instruments (including a “tricone resonator” and “golden-era flattop” - sounds delicious) and Mary’s rich voice to make these ten, close-feeling tracks. Mostly recorded live, for th...view item »

Maurizio Bianchi / M.B
Untitled 1980 / Untitled 2013

CD on Important Records. Gritty industrial noise produced from a single Korg MS20 synthesizer by Italian pioneer Maurizio Bianchi. Recorded and originally released in 1980 this release contains the original recordings as well as four new compositions, recorded in 2013, based on the original material....view item »

Eleh
Retreat, Return, Repose

A much needed CD issue of this trilogy, previously only available on vinyl direct from the label and now somewhat collectable. The audio has been remastered especially for the digital version.  To be perfectly honest the vinyl pressings sound like shit. The best move would be to save yourself some dosh and get the audio sounding clean and c...view item »

Nadja + Vampillia
The Perfect World

Here’s a rather special addition to Aidan “Nadja” Baker’s already intimidating canon - a collaboration with Osaka’s progressive neoclassicists Vampillia which straddles their two worlds of minimal doom rock and orchestral grandeur. Opener ‘Aurora&rsqu...view item »
