Bjarni Gunnarsson
Lueur

Not gonna lie, the heart of this particular description writer sinks when he gets a record in by an ‘Icelandic sound artist/composer’. You can thank the Olafur Arnaldses and Sigur Roses of this world for eroding any confidence he once had in that particular phrase. As such, his hopes weren’t hi...view item »

Max Bondi
M

Max Bondi sounds like a cool jet-set actor from the 70s. Imagine my disappointment on finding he's merely another drone/experimental musician and not some perma-tanned, ice-white toothed Remmington advert guy. I'll let him off though cos not only does he run the amazing Tartaruga records of Bleeding Heart Narrative & Quinta fame but he's the fo...view item »

Glottalstop
Woodsmoke

Glottalstop is the latest project from Petrels' Oliver Barrett, and quite possibly the weirdest record I've heard so far this week. The bulk of the sounds here are sourced from a 20-year-old collection of tape recordings, but they're collaged together into a dense, muddy fog of slowed-down sounds. Over the top of th...view item »

Max Bondi
Convolution

The name's Bondi, Max Bondi. I'm soooo funny.  Max has a new album out, his 2nd to be precise and it's called Convolution. It's on the Tartaruga label which means it's a thing of beauty. It's packaging in a brown hand stitched digipack thing which has been screen printed and there's a...view item »

Petrels
Haeligewielle

Utilizing a combination of bowed strings, bent electronics, found percussion and occasional vocals,this is the artists debut release. Things slowly unfold with the evocative 'After Francis Danby' which paints a mental image of a ship lost at sea emerging inland through the fog. Lots of pretty chiming sounds on this one which is massively dramati...view item »

These Feathers Have Plumes
Corvidae

Some quality droney dark ambient type stuff here from the good people at Tartaruga. I'm sure you all know what to expect with their lovely hand-stitched packaging. But wait! This one's got a feather in it! You weren't expecting that one now, were you? Right so this is definitely the darkest, heaviest, most dissonant release I've heard on the lab...view item »

Brassica
Microvictories

Brassica's got a new thing out on Tartaruga packaged in their signature hand-stitched digipak loveliness, it's called Microvictories and we all think it's rather good. A lot of it reminds me of Semaphore-era Fridge, it's got a cool mixture of electronic and acoustic going on with lots of happy sounding melodies a la Boards of Canada. There's a go...view item »

Bleeding Heart Narrative
Tongue Tangled Hair

Well the last Bleeding Heart Narrative CD was a monster hit for us, many, many months ago and now 'Tongue Tangled Hair' is a fresh offering from Oliver Barrett & friends so 'tis time to get proper excited!! Beginning tentatively with stately organ drone switching into a choral barbershop piece with charming minimal percussion, that then blossom...view item »

Quinta
My Sister Boudicca

Right. I'm a little in love with Tartaruga recordings. Those lovely folk who dazzled & confounded us with the Norman smash by Bleeding Heart Narrative have done it again with their 3rd release, 'My Sister, Boudicca' by the amazing Quinta. Opening with a charming classical chamber piece that manifests itself as an excursion into Riley/Reich styl...view item »
