Mountainhood
America 2 or Nahuel Huapa, A Saga: The Intense Vibes of the Rainbow, A Tale of Transformation Of My Brother

This feller baked my brain last time I attempted to review one of his collections of music. That was a pretty far-out record mind and here he indulges his free lo-fi folk persona. It works on many levels as he's obviously got music flowing through his veins so he simply does what the fuck he likes whether the results sound...view item »


Bjerga/ Iversen
The Luminous Disk In The Sky

Another Dead Pilot CDr job is spinning while the office walls are closing in from an astonishing batch of deliveries which must be an all time biggest haul ever for Norman Records. This one is from cult underground dronesters Bjerga/Iverson and is an exercise in throbbing minimal pulses and static hum/buzz. I'm going to reach for my special drone r...view item »

Cylon
Resonanz

There is a whole ton of dreamy drifty ambient type gear in this week. We're literally drowning it... Hey there's some good stuff though.... Cyclon is Jannick Schou and his 'Resonanz' album for Dead Pilot will have you floating away in no time. It's basically some really subtle, ultra chilled ambient gear to get lost in. It's quality stuff and the w...view item »

Gish

Gish deliver 5 tracks of experimentalism and sound art. Beginning with a frantic and uneasy burst of percussion, the album takes us through various soundscapes and textural sustains that range from minimal glassy tones accompanied by shifting static to huge waves of fractured psychedelic distortion. CDr edition of 100 in sc...view item »

Douleurfantome
Douleurfantome

Douleurfantome, aka Creature, is Vincent Vigier. A one man guitar manipulator, thrasher, noiser, droner, genius. The first track entitled "50Moloch" is a slow builder of dread filled static that erupts with fierce and intense walls of screaming guitars. It's like a tangled radio broadcast from a war torn future, ending with mour...view item »

Stray Ghost
An Avalanche of Swollen Tongues

"An Avalanche of Swollen Tongues" opens with the 23 minute long title track of kaleidoscopic spectral ambiance. Swells of celestial tones reach back and forth around your mind, surrounding your sense in a warm glow. The glorious "Grains and Waves" follows. An outstanding piece of melodic genius; euphoric and intense and filled with overwhelming ...view item »

Guillaume Gargaud
Lost Chords

“Lost Chords” is the fourth full length album from Guillaume Gargaud and it represents his work at it’s most accomplished. Gargaud’s style of improvisational guitar and electronics is intriguing and absorbing; jumping back and fourth between harsh glitches and soothing soundscapes and visiting everything inbetween.  ...view item »

Cam Deas: About A Train (Dead Pilot) Is a limited edition two track EP of improvised electronics made from field recordings based on two train journeys.

Fordell Research Unit
Year Zero

And finally from me this week is another CD on the Dead Pilot label. This one is by the Fordell Research Unit and it's lovely packaged in a nipple pack. I like them. It's a 25 minute album of intense dark drones and feedback which build and build until your brain is a frazzled former shadow of itself. There's a lot of this sort of thing around thes...view item »

Summons of Shining Ruins
Bud Variations

I've started well this week. I've just lost a CD case. I had it in my hand and then 5 minutes later it's disappeared from the planet. Where do these things go?? Anyhoo Summons of Shining Ruins have a cassette out on Dead Pilot this week. I'm not gonna lose it either....

Tread Softly
For Those Who...

And quickly leaving the delights of Razorlight behind I move onto to Tread Softly with their debut CD on Dead Pilot, called For Those Who... This is one of their limited jobs (50 copies in 2 different sorts of digipacks). Here we have 7 tracks of electronic ambience and drone which sounds pretty lush to my fat ears. It's all reasonably melodic and ...view item »

Here's another nice little limited thing on Dead Pilot. It's a CD by Timothy C. Holehouse and it's called 'To The Howls At Midnight'. It's (as ever) a lovely looking thing with a big square cut out of the sleeve with a nice picture of a tree shoved inside. It's like a miniature TV which is broken....

Jannick Schou
Against a Backdrop of Blue Hills, They Were as Beautiful as a Lullaby

Once again i'm in sleepy ponderous drone-land. I wanted to close my eyes for a few mins when I got home this eve & opted for this slinky, elegant looking number to relax with. This lad has had a swiftly sold-out offering on the ever-reliable Under the Spire a while back but that is trumped by this lavish re-issue of a download only set. It's...view item »

Brian Grainger
Diamond Tears On Slate

Our man Brian makes his album label debut on Dead Pilot following an appearance on the Drone Poets CD a short while back... Oh shit! A few minutes in and black clouds are shifting towards me and sucking me up into a vortex. Man he's heading straight into the zone here, no messing.

Parallel Lines

The chap at Dead Pilot loves his bits of string. The new CD by Parallel Lines is wrapped up in a bit of string. It's like a Russian parcel (buy something from Russia and you'll see what I mean).

Plurals/ Tuluum Shimmering

Dead Pilot have been churning these split CD's out for a while now. The 7th in the series (yes it's a series) is upon us and that's a split by Plurals and Tuluum Shimmering. It's limited to 100 copies in a digipack with a thing stuck on it and a thing on the inside of it. Classy. The Plurals track is awesome.... You get just shy of 14 minutes from ...view item »

Operations
You And Atomic Warfare

Dead Pilot recommend Headphone listening for the 'You And Atomic Warfare' album from Chris Anderson's Operations project. Not one to disobey instructions I follow the advice and what I'm hearing is actually quite thought provoking. The album was inspired by Nuclear tests conducted by Western countries during the 50's. For me the visual I get is of ...view item »

Well nice! Inside the sleeve is a nice bit of blue paper with a cool pattern on which pokes through the holes. Suddenly the need for holes is making sense....view item »

Ekca Liena
Sleep Paralysis

I can never spell Ekca Liena right. I always spell one of the words wrong and then I have to go and correct myself. There's only nine characters in there as well so it's not hard. The urge to put the C before the K is strong....The last Ekca CD blew my face off and we gave it album of the week... We sold out in a day!! Here is his proper follow up ...view item »

1877
I Am An Antagonist

Pretty solid CD single action from 1877 on Dead Pilot with the 'I Am An Antagonist' limited edition which comes over as a curious mix of The Sisters Of Mercy, Interpol, Sofa and prime period Human League Phil Oaky vocals. The production is well tight and mixes guitars and electronics in a wicked 80's style that has us thinking of bits of Cabaret Vo...view item »

The Doom Riot
Slow Estate Dreams

Cool fuzzy, droney stuff here from The Doom Riot. Maybe from the name you might expect a dodgy Sunn O))) knockoff but that's really not the case at all, it's nothing like as dark as it might first appear with much of it actually being quite uplifting. Most of Slow Estate Dreams is undoubtedly noisy though, a lot of it sounds quite like Stars of the...view item »

Me With Others
You Can't Argue With Silence

One of a few CD's we got from the Dead Pilot label this week was a CD by Me With Others. This is simple earnest singer songwriter folk pop with a very small edge. It's certainly passionate as the fellow really busts his balls singing at times. I mean that metaphorically.... I'd like to think that that he didn't actually damage his knackers. This ...view item »

More droning on Dead Pilot now with Lahto and Shadows of What We Were. If The Doom Riot is the night before then this is the morning after, it's not a million miles away (there's only so much you can do with a drone, after all) but it's far more sedate. Cinematic is definitely a good word to describe it, some bits remind me of Vangelis' stuff on th...view item »

This Oxford producer had a release on Highpoint Lowlife a bit ago.This limited edition consists of two tracks: 'Swans/Black' and 'Black/Swans'. This is very nice indeed.

A Genuine Freakshow; 'We Are Undercurrents' (Dead Pilot) Do a highly symphonic sounding take on bombastic melodic rock with vocals that tend towards the falsetto and emotional-or should that read emotionally falsetto.

More from the Dead Pilot label.... It's a 3" CD by Operations called Knights Move and this one is limited to just 90 copies.
