Odd Nosdam
Mirrors

Is 2019 the year when everyone finally gives in and accepts that Odd Nosdam is one of the finest producers on the planet? His latest record sees the Anticon co-founder and clOUDDEAD alumni release MIRRORS  - an album he made entirely out of found sounds and samples from rare and private press vinyl. Sure to be an important addition to his already impressive canon of work.

The Notwist
Superheroes, Ghostvillains & Stuff

German indie weirdos The Notwist present their first ever live recording. Performing tracks mainly off of their albums Neon Golden, The Devil, You and Me, and Close To The Glass. Sounding somewhere between Efterklang’s off kilter pop, and Radiohead electronic experiments, blending, and swinging between the two. Triple LP and CD on Alien Transistor.

The Notwist
Messier Objects

Messier Objects by The Notwist is a compilation of music recorded by the band for various theatre productions and radio plays. The music was recorded between the release of their 2008 album, The Devil, You & Me and 2014’s Close To The Glass. It was a period when the band also worked on solo projects. Throughout the 17 tracks on the album, the evolution of the band’s sound can be charted. Available on double vinyl LP with etching screen printed sleeve and CD.

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 4

For over twenty years, Japanese experimental folk band Tenniscoats have been making music however barring a few releases, including the beautiful Two Sunsets, a collaboration with The Pastels, the band haven’t released anything outside Japan. Music Exists Disc 4 is the fourth and final vinyl only release of their greatest work. The band have also previously collaborated with Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake and Half Japanese mainman, Jad Fair. LP on Alien Translator.

Le Millipede
The Sun Has No Money

Alien Ensemble member Matthias Goetz drops the second LP of his Le Millipede project. Though his work in AE sees him sticking to the trombone, there’s a far wider range of instruments being employed across The Sun Has No Money. As well as some Peter Zummo-indebted trombonica (‘Brennelementesteuer’), this album takes in everything from Gallic library music (‘Compost Ghosts’) to parodic twee-pop ala The Notwist (‘Toennchen’) and much more.

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Vula

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra are a Berlin behemoth of a band, featuring eighteen members working under leader Daniel Glatzel. New fourth album Vula is a thrilling ride through stacks of international rhythms, melodies and textures, the whole thing unfolding in great detail over the course of an hour. Vula is a double LP, released by Alien Transistor.

1115
Post-Europe

1115 are a bit of an enigma. Vocalist Fehler Kuti teaming up with the mysterious “Grey” (Julian Maison/G.E.F.) for their Post-Europe “Opera”. Dark, psychedelic, distubing yet playful, their debut full length is an artistically free no-man’s land -- hints of Nicolas Jaar, Arca, Dean Blunt, and Juan Atkins combine with ghost like vocals. Vinyl and CD on Alien Transistor.

Byul.org
Selected Tracks For Nacht Damonen

This compilations acts as a sort of peak under the sheets of the underground Korean music scene. A collection of works from a collective from Seoul called Byul.org. Compiled by the collective’s director TaeSang Cho and Markus Acher of The Notwist the music itself ranges from minimal and abstract sound art to synth pop and electro. A fantastic look at the DIY culture still at large under everyone’s feet.

Jam Money
A Gathering Kind

A Gathering Kind is built from half-instruments - charity shop keyboards, damaged guitars, music boxes, family heirlooms and that. Where such projects can descend into  amateurism and half-arsedness, it’s an impressive feat that Kevin Cormack and Mathew Fowler have fashioned such a friendly and beguiling record. It’s tightly-constructed yet flowing and ambient, and the care that has gone into Jam Money saw the pair do a run of dates with The Notwist in 2015. The vinyl comes with a booklet.

Alien Ensemble
Alien Ensemble 2

Micha Archer of The Notwist (along with drummer Andreas Harberl) set up Alien Ensemble to explore instrumental arrangement, to take it down a gear, and strip things back. Their second album is further stripped back with it sounding like a backing band to jazz pieces without the soloing madman upfront. Sometimes krauty sometimes lounge-appropriate, but really quite serene.

1115
The Drowned World

High-tempo electronic experiments from the search engine-unfriendly 1115. On Drowned World the duo bring together analogue gear and looped and modulated vocals. Their aim is to create an updated form of traditional percussive musical forms. This is like a dense, repetitive and extremely great kosmische drum circle that slowly collapses on itself.

Le Millipede
Le Millipede

Le Millipede is the work of one of those impressively capable characters, making whole records himself out of a smorgasbord of instruments. On this self-titled record, he lets his skills go wild, piecing together intricately twinkling percussion lines, with harmoniums, trombones and stylophones carrying the tunes on top. On Alien Transistor.

Rayon (Markus Acher)
Il Collo E La Collana

Rayon, the solo-project of The Notwist’s Markus Acher, is mostly concerned with the production of soundtracks. For Eleonora Danco’s newest movie N-capace, Acher made the music: Il Collo E La Collana. Like we’ve come to expect from the Alien Transistor label, the soundtrack is strange, disorienting and beautiful. Expect simple musical themes and careful, stretched-out glitches.

Alien Ensemble
Alien Ensemble

Attempting to contact other intelligent life forms with the Alien Ensemble. Their self-titled record is the bands own take on improvised music. Taking ideas and concepts from the history of jazz, their sound blends Gil Evans-ish arranging techniques, Sun Ra harmonic forays and contemporary textures a la Brian Blade et al. This all acoustic group also stray into less abstract sounds of european folk and popular music territory. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Alien Transistor.

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Live On Planet Earth

The Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is one of Alien Transistor’s craziest and biggest acts, always going their own path, somehow defining a route between the 18 of them. Known for their work on label buddies the Notwist’s work, they also draw their own weight: Live On Planet Earth was recorded live and is mysterious and catchy.

Joasihno & Jel
Lay Down / Hypnotize

Neat little 7" from The Notwist’s Alien Transistor label. Anticon man Jel constructed ‘Hypnotise Us’ out of fragments sourced from Munich duo Joasihno, while ‘Lay Down’ is a brand new track from the German pair. Looped acoustic strums, somnambulent vox (courtesy of Jel himself on 'Hypnotise Us') and lazy beats add up to a dreamy two-track treat.
