You + Your D. Metal Friend
Sonnier

Cico Beck and Markus Acher of the Notwist have teamed up as You + Your D. Metal Friend to create something of consistent, delicate beauty, in “Sonnier”. Tickled analogue synth, gently tinkling percussion under soft mallets and warm, undulating bass all combine over the course of the six ‘Sonnie...view item »

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 3

This is the third time now they've told us that music exists. We know it does; we just think it sucks. We don't think psychedelic, folksy and avant-rock duo Tenniscoats suck, though -- especially not on this collaboration with members of Swedish post-rock band Tape, who expand their song...view item »

Tenniscoats

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 fourt...view item »

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...view item »

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Vula

An eighteen-piece band playing a cunning amalgamation of jazz and classical that veers between proggy abstractions, easy listening and your favourite Moody Blues record, the Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra know how to explode their sound into big, bright colours. ‘Vula’ is their biggest work yet, fo...view item »

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 fr...view item »

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 fr...view item »

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 ti...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 exp...view item »

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 circ...view item »

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 sound...view item »

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 Alie...view item »

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 contempo...view item »

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 m...view item »

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, somnambule...view item »

Saroos
Return

I’ve not crossed paths with this trio Saroos before, but this is in fact their third album and their members have played in bands like The Notwist and Lali Puna so I guess that’s more my fault than theirs at this point. They make a strangely wo...view item »

Boy In Static
Newborn

There's a new release on Alien Transistor by Boy In Static. The singer sounds a bit like that chap from Snow Patrol. It's more indie than previous releases on the label and we think it's gonna appeal to folks who like Styrofoam. Indie music with a few blips, tweaks and beats. Nice enough stuff like.......view item »
