Peter Wright
Orbit

This is the first I've heard of NZ ambient bod Peter Wright but apparently his last release was a mammoth 2CD thing so I guess this time he's easing up a little on the quantity, offering up a single LP with nearly 40 minutes of d...view item »

Millions
Millions

What is left to say about the deluge of albums that comprise of synthesizer drones ebbing and flowing, drifting hither and thither? It's a struggle and that's why The Wire spend their time overintellectualising what is basically the sound of a man playing one note on an organ for 40 minut...view item »

Brian Grainger
One Bleak Try

Install present a new collection from Brian Grainger with each track being a collaborative effort with fellow Install artists David Tagg, Peter Wright, Shinobu Nemoto, Acreil, Jason Adams and Millipede. Recorded as a way for Grainger to thwart a serious case of writers block, 'One Bleak Try' is a six track CD of compositions exploring all avenue...view item »

Aidan Baker
Origins & Evolutions

Subtitled ‘a composition for multiple guitars’ this features the axe talents of Jon Attwood (Yellow6), David Tagg, and, amongst others, someone seemingly calling him...view item »

David Tagg
Hand Of Clovers

Looks like it’s big ambient day here at Norman Towers. No complaint mind as these soothing drones are a perfect accompaniment to a beautiful summers day like today. That is unless David Tagg is behind the multi-layere...view item »

Milieu
Phosphene Weather

Milieu (AKA Brian Grainger, Coppice Halifax, Parallax etc.) has put out a whole ton of music but incredibly none on vinyl… until now, where he has a gorgeous (both visually and sonically) LP out on Install Sound. The silk-screened sleeve design by David Tagg is total eye candy. It's clear to see why they've really pushed the boat out for 'Ph...view item »

Aidan Baker
Dry

Is MTV unplugged still going? I haven’t watched MTV in about 15 years... Anyway Aidan Baker has a CD out on Install called ‘Dry’ and the name is a clue to what’s happening on the recording. Basically the man is playing his electric guitar ‘“Dry” i.e zero effects. Okay so his guitar is plugged in but this is kinda like his Unplugged ...view item »

David Tagg
Pentecost

The first of two releases this week on David Tagg and Brian Grainger's Install label comes from Mr. Tagg himself and it's totally blissed out. He's created a very immersive and evocative sound, amongst his recording techniques are the use of reel to reel tapes of his grandfather playing organ as a sound source. I find this kind of recycling of s...view item »

Peter Wright
Snow Blind

Peter Wright is a bit of a top geezer when it comes to arresting sounds and his whopping 'Snowblind' double CD on Install is somewhat of an essential beast. Hot on the heels of The Caretaker's ' Persistent Repetition Of Phrases' CD that was critically acclaimed (and we couldn't get enough of as every batch of discs to arrive would sell out super fa...view item »

Wood-Land
Stone Circle

Wood-land have released a few bits and bobs on the Install label but i'm totally unfamiliar with their work. 'Stone circle' is the duo's first full length release, limited to a super small run of 100 copies. On first listen i reckon it's total winner. Twenty tracks of brooding lo-fi instrumentation that sounds like it was recorded using the very ...view item »

Greg Davis
Regarding Wave

You know I'm really just gonna totally recommend both CD's out on Install this week. I love them both and like kids I cant say I love one more than the other... What I love about this Greg Davis disc is how it's subtlety psychedelic. Greg really makes the harmonic drones sing here with infinite shimmering chimes mapping out a vivid and gorgeous ...view item »

David Tagg
Dream Compost

Install are churning them out this week. This carries on where the Millions album left off in that it's drifting ambience, yet the colleagues who have mocked me for playing the same album twice should listen a little closer to the soft cushions of sound that Tagg creates from what I presu...view item »

VCV & Shinobu Nemoto
Jovian Clouds

Please allow me to direct your attention to the press release of this item, a delightfully insane piece of fantasist sci-fi which, in a nutshell, explains that this is a collaboration between man and extra-terrestrial and was recorded on Jupiter. I think it's trying to say there's only 100 of them, too, but I'm no...view item »

The Garden
In Sea-Land

A fine collaboration here from New York based musician David Tagg and Kyoto's Hakabune which is the alias of Takahiro Yorifuji. Recorded in both cities in the winter of 2011 it is unclear whether they actually recorded togeth...view item »

Millipede
Full Bloom

Here's a super tidy set of noisy, overtone-filled guitar dronesmithery from Joseph Davenport, aka Millipede. Immediately (perhaps inevitably) the harsher end of Fennesz's output comes to mind so it seems quite fitting that a sample of his voice, recorded during a telephone interview, is used on one of the tracks. I guess Skullflower would be ano...view item »

Hakobune
A Yearlong Thought

Hakobune (Takahiro Yorifuji to his mum) plows a productive furrow in the old ambient drone world, as proved by previous quality releases (at least if Phil's reviews are to be believed) on labels such as Hibernate and Symbolic Interaction. He's also popped up on Install before too so they must've known what to expect from this full length which i...view item »

Jason/ Shinobu
Dispel Space Time Lust

Another week, another fine drone/ambient release, this one is from Jason and Shinobu through the mercurial Install. Slow waves of evocative drifting textures are randomly assaulted by sinister outbursts of grizzled fuzz, creeping up the sides of the stately walls like curious splashes of acid whilst someone in the distance metrononically taps a len...view item »

Simon Whetham and Mise_en_scene
Eineandereweltstrasse

Please permit me to begin with a sound art one tracker. Simon Whetham and mise_en_scene have crafted a forty minute collage out of field recordings from the Berlin night with lonesome squeeks and electrical hums offering the 'melodies' while pattering raindrops and the ever-morphing urban static graft away in the engine room. I guess there's a them...view item »

Ourson
Eth

Summer seems to be popping it's fat shiny head in through my windows, even at night it's gently warm & balmy. I feel in no mood for indie guitars, I want ambient soundscapes and cleansing washes of sound. Even dark, shuddering sound like Ourson (Mr. Luke Hazard) produces on his CD 'Eth'. I like listening to this at night as there's no beats to ...view item »

VCV
Round the Bend

A total surprise to have VCV album 'Round The Bend' drop this week. An album of Jandek adaptations created by Brian Grainger and David Tagg. These tasteful versions pay tribute to to the originals with the artists adding their own dimension. If you're feeling...view item »

Eluder
Rituals

Eluder have a new CD out on Install this week (Caretaker, Peter Wright) but this is part of their Installation series. It's number 11 to be precise. You like it when I'm precise. You probably like it when I'm talking dirty as well but I'm not going down that road now. Especially when my ears are awash with the droney ambience that Eluder are exposi...view item »

The Jack Bohlen Book Club
Allegory & Violence

The other installation series component is #7 'Allegory & Violence' by The Jack Bohlen Book Club. This baby is more used to hanging around fields with a tape recorder getting it on with blades of grass & nature man. Then Jack goes into town to buy a book on different types of grass & forgets he's left his tape player on so ends up recor...view item »

Tanner Menard
Canopy of Sky on Black

Tanner Menard is the 6th artist to grace Install's 'Installation' series. Install, if you didn't know, are responsible for the recent Caretaker CD that's shook the ambient/hauntological scene up a tad recently. 'Canopy of Sky on Black' starts with the sound of someone possibly scoffing a bag of monster munch by a microphone before the waves of dron...view item »
