Celer
Tightrope

I really do like Celer's drone sound. They have somehow managed to create a sound through their vast back catalougue which manages to be clearly identifiable as their own sound, which is not an easy thing to do in the overcrowded drone / drift genre. There is a certain tone that most of their records seem to posess, and 'Tightrope' is no differe...view item »


Ex-Easter Island Head
Twenty-Two Strings

Actual music to look forward to hearing from this unique UK experimental band who lay their guitars down flat and use them to create instrumental pieces that recall Glenn Branca and Steve Reich. These are extremely rhythmic constructions that glean and incredible amount from a small set up. There's no-one quite ...view item »

Kyle Bobby Dunn
Fragments and Compositions Of

This is a vinyl re-issue of Dunn’s debut which originally drifted into consiousness back in 2008 and as you might expect, if you’ve heard his other work, it comprises of a series of beautiful violin drones. I assume its a violin,  he is certainly using or some sort of stringed instrument and its highly processed so that you can&...view item »

Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet
Hafvet

Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet first came to our attention with their marvellous 'Catalina' LP which helped sooth us in the run up to Christmas. That LP had just two tracks of unending gorgeous swirl whilst this tape (limited to just 75) has four tracks of similar.  And gorgeous it is. These two Swedes just know exactly how to creat...view item »

Kleefstra | Bakker | Kleefstra
Dage

Well, I’m so excited I’m almost fit to burst. Firstly, this happened yesterday: Phil ordered a new tape gun -- yes, a tape gun -- a deluxe model, no less, sturdy with a smooth action and a nice ergonomic grip. These things are important, believe me. And now this! A brand new release from Dutch trio made up of the Kleefstra brothers a...view item »

Chris Herbert
Katushki

Chris Herbert is a sound architect with a nice, intuitive approach: he is equally adept dealing with melodic material as he is pure texture, and Katushki holds the ear’s attention throughout. It really pulls off that trick of changing constantly but imperceptibly, ending up somewhere altogether different to where ...view item »


Kogumaza
Sevens/Mara

This is pretty sweet. Its on ruby red vinyl. It has a plain sleeve. It makes me want to smoke a bowl too*. This is the new project from members of Wolves! of Greece, Lords and Little Girl With Cherries. I thought it was gonna be a blues/grunge work out, but its not of that ilk. It's a lo-fi bong fest that sounds really dense, with twin Gibsons set ...view item »


Kogumaza
Konokon

Kogumaza’s second full-length, from 2014, gets a cassette reissue. Of course, this material stretches out nicely, creating a fathoms-deep, unhurried soundscape of drums and fuzzy guitars, with the rare edition of some bass, courtesy of Nathan Bell of Lungfish. Konokon is reissued ...view item »

How To Cure Our Soul
Luna

Very limited white C40 cassette from Luna. How to Cure Our Soul, on Low Point Records, uses electric guitar, samples and tape manipulation to create a sombre drone music. This Italian duo combine their artistic backgrounds to create rich and varied ambient music that crescendos and flows at its ...view item »


Ex-Easter Island Head
Mallet Guitars Three

I thoroughly enjoyed Ex-Easter Island Head’s previous ‘Mallet Guitars’ offering so I’m happy to see that part three has arrived this week. Here there are four new movements of the Liverpudlian avant-drone team’s unique soundscapes of gentle repetitive polyrhythms and shimmeri...view item »

Fabio Orsi And Seaworthy
Near And Faraway

The latest offering from Low Point comes from Fabio Orsi and Seaworthy in the form of the 'Near and Faraway' disc which is currently calming the office after another bloody hectic day. It consists of three parts, the first of which is 'Evening By Evening' which is totally sublime, keyboards, found sounds and layers of dreamy ambient guitar are melt...view item »

Gareth Hardwick
Of The Sea And Shore

Here is Gazza's 3rd album proper released on his own Low Point label. It was recorded using guitar, harmonium, cymbals, chimes, dictaphone and radio. So there's more of a colourful template on this release to previous Hardwick numbers. You got 2 tracks for your sins. The 1st is a long wobbly sounding drone piece which is reasonably busy and ever...view item »

Kogumaza

Here's something to get all giddy about. After releasing a couple of fantastic 7"s (one on Low Point, the other on Lancashire And Somerset) Kogumaza go big with their debut LP. Hailing from Nottingham and featuring members of groups such as Bob Tilton, Lords, Felix, Little Girl With Cherries and the offensively underrated Wolves (Of Greece),...view item »

Ex-Easter Island Head

Available on limited run of 100 10” vinyl on Low Point. Head honcho at Low Point Gareth Hardwick has released a number of small run CD-Rs and vinyls based around field samples, delicate fluttering guitar drones, harmoniums and lap steels.

Ex-Easter Island Head
Mallet Guitars Two / Music For Moai Hava

Lviv
Transmission One

Supposedly named after a Western Ukraine town, presumably in affectionate sympathy for the country's ongoing woes and struggle, this is a collaboration between Gareth Hardwick, Dan Layton & David Stockwell and some cinemaphiliac bods Kneel Before Zod. There's not a great deal of information I can muster up about this enigmatic...view item »


Apalusa
Ghost Notes

The third LP by Apalusa, aka Nottingham's Dan Layton. 'Ghost Notes' is a dreamy soundscape of delicately assembled music and field recordings, stripped back to the bare bones to create a piece which is both intricate and stark. The vinyl edition is very limited to just 150 copies and comes with some suitably ghostly-looking artwork on it. ...view item »

P Jorgensen
Gold Beach

On this supremely atmospheric album, Danish electro-acoustic composer P Jørgensen takes slippery, eerie notes from what sounds like a microtonal jazz/chamber group (kinda like a slowed down Joe Maneri quartet) and takes their slowly evolving musical forms through an expansive backdrop of environmental recordings and found sounds. While th...view item »

Aversions

Ant here getting old and frail.. Oh my aching body. Time to park my behind on a chair and take my medicine. Doctor Gareth Hardwick has the prescription in the form of his Aversions disc which is a fine collection of remixes from the dronemeister. On duty at hospital Lowpoint are some highly trained staff to give me a much needed massage and inject ...view item »

Chubby Wolf
The Darker Sex

If I was to have a decent nickname instead of the lumpen & idiotic Dangerous Brian, it would have to be Chubby Wolf. Alas I cannot adopt that moniker because it belongs to the late Danielle Baquet-Long of Celer. This is the first time i've actually heard her solo work. This sure is one scintillating dreamscape is this 7". I was unsure how he...view item »

This is a trio of Netherlands based people who have collaborated with the likes of Machinefabriek (haven't they all?) Peter Broderick (er....haven't they all?) Gareth Davis, Nils Frahm, Greg Haines and Danny Saul. What they produce is  murky, morose sorrowful guitar textures overlaid...view item »


Tim Catlin & Machinefabriek
Patina

This is the second collaboration between Rutger Zuydervelt and this Australian guitarist and sound artist. The creation involved prepared guitar and sitar from Catlin given over to Machinefabriek who draws out extended tones and drones adding additional sounds and overdubs. The result is really subdued and hypnotic. The second part 'Patina II' h...view item »

Celer

Right here at the bottom, almost as a footnote, is a last minute arrival from Low Point records who've the strange privilege of releasing one of the first posthumous Celer releases after the incredibly sad passing of Dani Baquet-Long.

Ben Fleury-Steiner
The Places That Find You

Ambient drone music, eh? What's that all about anyway? We sell an awful lot of it, perhaps because it's so easy to hum along to. This is another of those records. You're probably reading this review because you like them and are considering investing in another one. Y'know, bvdub, Hawgood...view item »

Celer
Mane Blooms

You know when I first clocked this ‘Mane Blooms’ 7” by Celer I must admit that I had my reservations about how suitable their music is/how it would translate to the format. However after a few listens I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s actually really cool. The record serves as a kind of counterpart to the excellent ‘Brittle’ CD re...view item »


Nickolas Mohanna
Transmission Hue

As far as I'm aware this is the first proper CD release from this Brooklyn artist, better known as Vakhchav, who's had a bunch of CDr releases out on Blackest Rainbow amongst others. Using guitar, analogue modular synthesizer and electronics he creates tripped out dynamic drones. The German influence is apparent, recalling classic kosmische. Moh...view item »


Dag Rosenqvist & Simon Scott
Conformists

That's a right combo! Scott and TX on one record. Yikes! The story goes that Dag was asked to score a film about how group mentality rules our behavior as humans for a film by a Juriaan Booij. Dag said 'wayayeman, I'll 'ave a goo pet' and he asked his drone buddy Simon Scott to aid and abet him through the process. Thus the album was recorded an...view item »

Ex-Easter Island Head
Mallet Guitars One

This 12" contains three tracks recorded live at St. Bridge's Church back in August 2010. The duo play horizontally mounted guitars by hitting them with percussion mallets and the results are intriguing. They create some nice minimalist rhythms focusing on repetition, amplification and resonance. The results become dreamy and hypnotic and once fu...view item »

Apalusa
Obadiah

Onto the delightful Apalusa on the ever useful Low Point label. Obadiah is packaged in a lovely letterpress 'arigato pack' in an edition of 300, so from the off it's a bit sexy looking like. Here we have 3 tracks of droney tunes which veer on the dark side of things. For me the obvious comparison here is some of the earlier Stars of The Lid music b...view item »

Christopher Hipgrave

Time to wrap yourself up in a warm ambient drone blanket courtesy of Christopher Hipgrave. This is Dan's 3rd album (is it OK if I call Christopher Hipgrave 'Dan'?) and here he continues his foray into all things ambient, drifty, click, crackly and droney. Most importantly this is one of the warmer enveloping ambient drone albums I've heard in a ...view item »

Oahu

The ever prolific Machinefabriek has a new album out. This one is a collaboration with Freiband (Frans De Waard) on Gareth Hardwick's Low Point label.

Then you get 2 tracks of delicious atmospherics, d...view item »

More drone for you. This time from Eyeballs on Gareth Hardwick's Low Point label. 'Europa' is a CDR release limited to 75 copies and it's 1 long 29 mins (ish) track.
