The Gentleman Losers
Make We Here Our Camp Of Winter

It must be something about the dark days of winter that these guys want to capitalize on, with their quiet, melancholy, and perfectly fine-tuned electronic music. Finnish ambient post-rockers The Gentleman Losers already put out one of our favorite albums of 2018. Make We Here Our Camp of Winter continues in the same vein but, not unlike my personal life, is a bit emptier, bleaker, and slower.

øjeRum
Alting Falder I Samme Rum

Intriguing sounds from Copenhagen, brought into being by øjeRum. Alting Falder I Samme Rum is a spacious listen that carefully choses a few elements (synth loops, pad drones, reverbs etc.) and lets them play out against each other for a good while, with strong and calming results. Released by Sound In Silence.

David Newlyn
Collected Fictions

David Newlyn returns to the lovely Sound In Silence (yndi halda, bvdub) for a new record of ambiences and beat experiments. Collected Fictions manages to be both one of Newlyn’s most diverse releases and also an album that maintains a strong aesthetic throughout. Be he serving up grainy tape-loops ala The Caretaker (‘Introduction (Broken Cassette Mix)’), post-rocky drones (‘Hymn To Bleachgreen’) or Boards Of Canada-style instrumentals (‘Travelling For A Living’), Newlyn always maintains a plaintive, slightly hypnagogic feel.

Ben Rath
Anything Is Possible

Sound In Silence tend to do a good job with their releases. They’re always short runs that are delightfully compiled in handmade packaging. Real labours of love. This latest one, a long-player called Anything Is Possible, comes courtesy of Mancunian Ben Rath. It’s a collection of warm, wistful drones that will appeal to fans of Fennesz and Tim Hecker. Comes handcrafted, of course.

Sweeney
Human, Insignificant

Australian artist Jason Sweeney, recording under his own name after two decades of releases under various monikers, presents a short 26-minute album about vulnerability titled Human, Insignificant. It’s constructed around Sweeney’s cracked vocals, brittle piano melodies and layers of orchestral instruments and field recordings. 

Panoptique Electrical
Quiet Ecology

Australian composer Panoptique Electrical (one Jason Sweeney) elists cellist Zoë Barry to accompany some of his gentle trips across the ivories for this limited Sound in Silence release. Inspired by his search for quiet spaces in several cities down under, Sweeney & Barry mirror the peacefulness of these few spots of respite. They do so, however, not without an obvious touch of mournful disdain for the ceaseless noise of civilisation.

Amp
Entangled Time

Entangled Time is the new and 19th album by electronic/post rock/space rock duo, Amp. It’s their first full-length studio album since Outposts in 2011. Since their inception in 1992 the duo have collaborated with a whole host of people including David Pearce of Flying Saucer Attack, Matt Elliott of Third Eye Foundation and Julian Cope collaborator Donald Ross Skinner. CD, limited to 200 hand made, hand numbered copies.

Western Edges
Prowess

Listen up, Normanites, this is something you’ll want to hear: Western Edges is the new project from Richard Adams of Hood, The Declining Winter, and Memory Drawings. Prowess, the project's debut, sees him exploring the world of ambient and electronic music and is comparable to bvdub, Aphex Twin and the beatless bits of Boards of Canada. It also soundtracks the area around Saltaire...and we love Saltaire here at Normans!  It is his third release on Sound Is Silence following two albums in 2015 by The Declining Winter and Great Panoptique Winter. 

HIN
Warmer Weather EP

Making its debut on the Sound In Silence imprint, HIN is a coming together of two childhood friends who’ve each found their own successes in different bands. Jerome Alexander (of Message To Bears) and Justin Lee Radford (of the Kids And The Cosmos) explore dreamy ambient electronica on their EP Warmer Weather.

Gavin Miller
Shimmer

Yorkshire-based experimentalist Gavin Miller - one-half of worriedaboutsatan - is back with a new EP Shimmer, his first outing on the Greek label Sound In Silence. Reverb heavy guitar and piano work is for the most part placed centre-stage, surrounded by ambient sound design that makes the minuscule feel seismic. This is a limited vinyl run of only 150 hand-numbered copies, each coming with a download code and handmade packaging.

MIS+RESS
Dispellers

The sophomore record from Brain Wenckebach’s MIS+RESS project arrives courtesy of Sound In Silence (yndi halda, The Gentleman Losers). As it was with 2017’s eponymous LP, Dispellers is a collection of delicate and delightful compositions. This is ambient music that pulls from several of the style’s sub-genres - foggy drones, squiggly electronica and post-rockish loops all crop up across the album. As is always the case with a Sound In Silence release, Dispellers is beautifully packaged.

Styrofoam
We Can Never Go Home

Belgian electronica veteran Arne van Petegem drops the latest thing from his long-running Styrofoam project. We Can Never Go Home is a record of typically pleasant, slightly emo bedroom instrumentals. Imagine The Postal Service sans lyrics. Greek label Sound In Silence (yndi halda, (ghost)) proves a fine fit for the album.

Sweeney
Middle Ages

Australian artist Jason Sweeney comes through with a gorgeous LP for Sound In Silence. Taking piano and voice as his starting point, Sweeney uses both organic and electronic instrumentation across Middle Ages to grow his torch songs into beautiful things that feel at once both widescreen and intimate. There’s plenty of Scott Walker and turn-of-the-century David Byrne to the likes of ‘Oh Goddess’.

Odd Nosdam
LIF

LIF by Odd Nosdam is the ultimate addition to any man, woman or child's ambient and drone collection. A nice mix of soft landscaping sounds with gentle rhythmic buzzes, this record is available on CD, released on Sound In Silence and will be one of only 200 handmade and hand-numbered copies in a white recycled - we like recycled - cardboard envelope. 

FJORDNE & stabilo
Andrew

Tokyo’s FJORDNE and Hiroshima’s stabilo provide two tracks apiece to this CD. The combination works well - the former’s billowing, 30s-jazz-club piano playing and dense sound collages play nicely off of stabilo’s murkier ambiences. There is more than a shade of early Eno here. Hand-stamped, lovingly packaged and comes with a download.
