Matthew Collings
Uzonia

Matthew Collings is a Scottish-based composer who mixes traditional orchestra instruments with electronics to create his pieces. Uzonia is taken from a term coined by Architect Frank Lloyd Wright as Usonia, being the ideal view of America. Collings interprets this term, in a world that has seen Trump elected and the UK vote to leave the EU, as a mix of something Utopian and something that has the potential to cause danger, or just be meaningless.

Ricardo Donoso
Re_Calibrate

Re_Calibrate is intended as a companion release to Ricardo Donoso’s acclaimed album from last year, Calibrate. On this record’s seven tracks, the composer pushes his sound into ever more adventurous territories, and could be viewed as an important bridging work in his discography in the future. 

Paco Sala
Our Love Is The Gold

Third studio album from dreamy synth-pop duo Paco Sala. Our Love Is The Gold the pair are not afraid to assert themselves and play to their strengths. As on past album the synth sounds are to die for and the vocal performance is heartbreaking and intense. Above all else they are not afraid to be themselves, relishing in their own quirks and idiosyncrasies. 

Petrels
Dusk Loom

Having enjoyed a prodigious output of an album at least every 12 months from 2011 to 2016, The Dusk Loom has taken Oliver Barrett a comparatively lengthy three years to put together, having stepped back from his Petrels project briefly. Finding inspiration ancient and modern mythology, otherworldliness is the key theme on this seventh record.

Ricardo Donoso
Calibrate

Denovali (Nadia Struiwigh, Her Name Is Calla) drop the new LP from Brazilian artist Ricardo Donoso. Calibrate sees Donoso going even deeper down the dark IDM/techno path than he did on June’s collaborative LP with Thiago Kochenborger. Frenzied soundscapes like ‘Rendering The Ineffable’ recall Arca, Phase Fatale and Bonaventure in equal measure. Powerful stuff.

Dictaphone
Collection

Dictaphone are a an electronic music project started by Oliver Doerell, who grew up in Brussels, in Berlin at some point in the late ‘90s. A couple of years later he was joined by Roger Doring. They bonded over the ‘80s Brussels music scene. They became a trio in 2009 when violin player, Alex Stolze joined. Collection gathers together their 4 albums on a very limited 4LP box set or 3CD set.

Ensemble Economique
Radiate Through You

Brian Pyle is back  with another round of uneasy compositions for Denovali. You radiated through him on the last track of Light that Comes, Light that Goes and now it’s time to radiate through yourself. Or it’s time for him to radiate through you. With his music. Which wafts its gloomy way through ambient, chamber loops, shoegaze and the like.

RDTK (Ricardo Donoso & Thiago Kochenborger)
Human Resources

Denovali Records (Mouse On The Keys, worriedaboutsatan) present the latest LP from a duo who have actually been together for a good 15 years now. Human Resources is the product of Brazilian two-piece RDTK - made up of former Hospital/Digitalis signee Ricardo Donoso and bassist-for-hire Thiago Kochenborger - and it’s a nervous record for nervous times. Tracks like ‘Seal The Chamber’ and ‘Affective Forecasting’ have a sort of Depeche Mode meets Nine Inch Nails vibe to them. One for all you Doomsday preppers out there.

The Eye Of Time
MYTH II : A Need To Survive

The second installment of three in the Myth series by french multi-instrumentalist Marc Euvrie’s (Mort Mort Mort, Karysun) solo project The Eye Of Time. Mixing neoclassical and post rock he blends huge electronic swells with organic elements,cello and a looming post-rock epicness. LP and CD on Denovali.

Carlos Cipa & Sophia Jani
Relive

Featuring two original piano compositions for four hands, Relive is a gentle yet dramatic, spectacular yet subdued, piano composition. That’s a lot of adjectives, but Carlos Cipa and Sophia Jani have created a two pieces of piano music that draw the listener in, know when to stop for silence, and repeat the right phrases at the right time. A modern classic among modern classical music.

Orson Hentschel
Facades

Düsseldorf-based Orson Hentschel flexes his vocal chords on latest EP release “Facades”, though his pipes are more geared toward the spoken-word (he’s not exactly Mariah Carey). Almost choreographic, this record weaves together minimalist electro and seamless samples to a cathartically tense climax.

Mario Diaz De Leon
Sanctuary

Mario Diaz de Leon presents his classical composition side with this recording of the single album-length piece Sanctuary, recorded with TAK Ensemble. As well as Mario’s synthesiser, the piece is built out of marimba bass clarinet, flute, violin and some high-reaching soprano vocals. Remarkable, fully-developed work. On Denovali.

Celeste
Infidèle(s)

French post-black metallers Celeste return to Denovali with their fifth full length studio album Infidèle(s). Gloom ridden, painful and brimming with negativity Infidèle(s) brings the lonely poison of Leviathan, relentlessness of Anaal Nathrakh and the atmospherics of Wolves In The Throne Room. Bleak.

Moon Zero
Relationships Between Inner & Outer Space

Moon Zero’s new album, the grandly-titled Relationships Between Inner & Outer Space, begins with a track named for Iceland’s ‘Keflavik’ airport that shimmers and swells into a dense mass of all sorts of melodic and textural sounds, sourced from instruments, tape loops, field recordings and more. And so it continues, in lush Denovali style.

Celeste
Misanthrope(s)

I'll try and keep this description a little less cluttered than the press release that requires a PhD in English Language to decipher what the actual f*** its going on about. Basically, this is a reissue of Misanthrope(s) by Celeste with a slightly new album art, that available on both CD and double vinyl LP that includes a download code. It really needn't be that difficult. 

Ensemble Economique
In Silhouette

Ensemble Economique, the work of Brian Pyle (formerly of Starving Weirdos), have a new album, the twelfth in the Economique canon. In Silhouette is a shadowy set of grayscale electronics driven by pulse-rhythms, everything coming together to mark out the territory of something sinister. LP and CD editions on Denovali.

Paco Sala
The Silent Season

Full-length album number five from Paco Sala. The Silent Season was born out of improvised sessions with synthesisers, vocals, samples etc. Hazy pop is still the name of the game, but Paco Sala have deliberately allowed whatever ‘errors’ came through in their playing and production to stand, making this a true portrait of a time and a state. Out on Denovali.

Monolog & Subheim
Conviction

Subheim and Monolog get involved with each other for this collaboration on Denovali. Conviction blends together sweet electronic ambiences and firm drum machines, creating an interesting hybrid that is at times intentionally wrong-footing. It’s both soft and hard, tender and fierce: a genuine collaboration. Heavyweight vinyl edition from Denovali.

Dag Rosenqvist & Matthew Collings
Hello Darkness

The occasionally-recurring team-up of Matthew Collings and Dag Rosenqvist present the results of five years of work, chopping and processing audio from studio sessions until finally satisfied with the results. Hello Darkness is deep and dark and heavy, but also not lacking in a sense of humour: just look at the cover. Out on Denovali.

Multicast Dynamics
Continental Ruins

Samuel van Dijk’s hazy electronic project Multicast Dynamics presents what he calls a ‘sound documentary’ on sunken infrastructure. Continental Ruins is thus suitably watery and sombre in tone, using heavily-processed synths and field recordings to create deep-textured sound slabs that’ll pull the listener under. Out on Denovali.

Michael Vallera
Vivid Flu

After a couple of releases on Opal tapes under his other moniker COiN Michael Vallera released his debut under his own name, a dark and gradual industrial soundscape. On his follow up, Vivid Flu on Denovali Vallera continues down a dark, almost film noir distorted machinery path with drowned plucked electric guitar.

Paco Sala
Ko Yo

This new six-track offering, Ko Yo, showcases the cream of the dreamy, abstract and lo-fi pop of London/Berlin based outfit Paco Sala. Brimming with warped synths and crunchy beats, the EP is a great example of modern day avant-garde pop and is ultimately the produce of unrestraint and dazed creative juices.

Blueneck
The Outpost

Idiosyncratically and in true Blueneck fashion, “The Outpost’ was recorded reclusively, though in an unusually short 18 months. The LP, complete with poignant vocals and an array of retro synths and guitars, is of the band’s most intense and progressive recordings to be released. Grab your copy of “The Outpost” on 180g black vinyl with free download code or CD digipak.

Fogh Depot
Turmalinturm

In continuing a journey through the avant-garde style melding a genres, Fogh Depot releases a highly off-kilter 7-track offering. Comprised of mainly nu-jazz, modern classical and electronic experimentalism, Turmalinurm is a wondrous and sprawling mix of drone, noise and melancholic melody

Subheim
Trails

If you're looking to close your eyes and be taken on a vivid, progressive sonic journey, there are few records more suitable than this. Berlin-based electronic producer Subheim presents his brand of distinguished and beautifully crafted ambient/downtempo music, with 2016 EP Trails. Expect worldly soundscapes, haunting vocal samples and an eclectic array of instrumentation. Released as Vinyl LP on the Denovali label.

Franz Kirmann
Elysian Park

In a stark change of direction from the other-worldly electronica of his second album Meridians, Franz Kirmann releases London-incepted record Elysian Park. Defined by visual and sonic influences from Berlin-based art project Hyper Trophies, this offering is a highly eclectic mix - ranging from tranquil clarity to brooding freneticism.

Ricardo Donoso
Quintesence

This is the sonic aspect of an audio-visual piece developed in collaboration with Florence To, originally diffused at a massive electro-acoustic dome in Montreal. Ricardo Donoso has written piano and string parts and subjected them to grand electronic manipulations, sweetening the deal with plenty of other audio fragments. The result is a massive immersive sound-world. Presented on disc by Denovali.

Sankt Otten + N
Männerfreundschaften und Metaphysik

Sankt Otten are a krautrock duo who have reached the dizzy heights of their tenth full-length album. Every piece on Männerfreundschaften und Metaphysik grew out of in-depth studio improvisations with guitarist friend N on hand, and the results are pretty damn droney. CD / double LP release on Denovali.

Petrels
Jörð

New album from Petrels, aka Oliver Barrett. Jör∂ drags the listener in straight away with a swooning choral arrangement that rises up out of a windy drone, and it carries on from that point with woodwinds, pop songs, electronics and all sorts, all swirling cinematically. Released by Denovali.

Piano Interrupted
Landscapes Of The Unfinished

The duo who comprise Piano Interrupted gathered some of the materials for this LP in West Africa: field recordings and the sounds of lively African musicians surface repeatedly throughout Landscapes Of The Unfinished, making a very interesting counterpoint to the piano, clarinet and double bass. On Denovali.

Matthew Collings
A Requiem For Edward Snowden

This album version of A Requiem For Edward Snowden is derived from a live audio-visual piece that has been performed in a number of arty venues around the world. Matthew Collings has composed a mighty mixture of haunting acoustic instrument parts and all sorts of creeping electronics. And the visual side of the work is available via accompanying download too! On Denovali.

Multicast Dynamics
Outer Envelopes

Mulitcast Dynamics is a utilitarian-sounding name, behind which lies Dutch producer Samuel van Dijk. Electronic landscapes are the name of his game, Outer Envelopes often sounding like a flyby of an alien planet, loosely tethered to a distant techno framework. Fourth in a four-part series of albums, this is released by Denovali.

Ricardo Donoso
Sarava Exu Remixes

Following the acclaimed album Savara Evu, Denovali have pressed a collection of remixes to 12” vinyl.  A variety of diverse styles were invited to explore Ricardo Donoso’s austere drones. Orphx ties those dry synthesizers into a dub techno framework, Thomas Köner explores the icy ambient he’s been developing for over a decade and the other inclusions push the sounds further into abstraction. This is a limited heavyweight pressing that includes download code and extra thick sleeve.

Saffronkeira
Synecdoche

Saffronkeira is the project of experimental and unconventional Italian electronic musician Eugenio Caria. Synecdoche is Saffronkeira’s fourth album. Here he takes the collaborative idea he used on Synecdoche’s predecessor, Cause and Effect where he worked with trumpeter Mario Massa, and runs with it. This time he collaborates with Mia Zabelka, Siavash Amini, Idlefon, Field Rotation, Sebastian Plano, Subheim and Witxes. Vinyl LP comes in thick matte gatefold sleeves with 180gm coloured vinyl and download code.

Ricardo Donoso
Symmetry

The first three albums produced by Ricardo Donoso have been compiled into two very handsome box sets by Denovali. Minimal polyrhythmic ambient compositions that take the listener to a special place. As hypnotic and questing as a Steve Reich piece. 3CD box or a limited-to-200-copies-only quadruple white vinyl box.

Bersarin Quartett
III

Massive draws here for fans of Deaf Center, or A Winged Victory for the Sullen, and even add in a bit of Bohren und der Club of Gore for good measure. Melancholia fully explored in these releases, and slowed to an unbearable halt. Layers of strings, synths and distorted swells. Thomas Bücker’ Bersarin Quartett’s third release in this series.

Orson Hentschel
Feed The Tape

A debut of abrasive drone and sound art from Orson Hentschel. Denovali release Feed the Tape on digipak CD and 180g double vinyl LP. Hentschel draws on minimal classical music, dark ambient and middle-age vocal forms to create something extremely distinctive. Here, repetitive, barely-present drones can be suddenly replaced with pounding industrial drums.

Ensemble Economique
Blossoms In Red

Ensemble Economique (the ensemble is in fact so economical that it contains only one member, Brian Pyle) release their / his eleventh album. Blossoms In Red has that shimmering ambient-songcraft vibe Pyle excels at, carefully placing subtle pieces of instrumentation next to each other. Guest appearance from Peter Broderick!

Neil On Impression
L'Oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre

Italian post-rock maestros Neil on Impression’s masterpiece L’Oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre has been long overdue for both translation and reissue. And thanks to the kind folks at Google Translate and Denovali, we’re able to provide both. More or less. It’s something about The Ocean’s Waves That Remain Until Forever. It’s also about creating what is perhaps the pinnacle of post-rock.

John Lemke
Nomad Frequencies

John Lemke‘s Nomad Frequencies LP is an electroacoustic work with a grand scope. Over the course of 10 tracks, Lemke melds analogue synthesis and field recordings with percussion and melodic instrumentation. Also, prominent use of tuning forks. Nomad Frequencies is released on CD or double gatefold LP by Denovali.

Ricardo Donoso
Machine To Machine

Ricardo Donoso works across a variety of styles, from more conventionally tuneful to out-there experimentalism. With Machine To Machine he tries to meld the two approaches, and he does a great job. These tracks are carefully composed explorations of texture with a rich seam of emotional content running right down the middle. On Denovali Records.

Mario Diaz de Leon
The Soul Is The Arena

Whoah! Mario Diaz De Leon has made a frankly insane record here, blending hardcore 20th century composition with intense electronic mangling and a hardcore punk approach to sequencing. The Soul Is In The Arena is an intense blast, very accomplished whilst also sounding fully gonzo. On Denovali Records.

Oneirogen
Plenitude

Plenitude is pretty direct for a Denovali release. While Oneirogen does have some of the ambient-droning-electroacoustics we’ve come to expect expect from the label, this EP also kicks very hard, with crashes of noise and battering beats: even some distant black metal-esque screams! Strong stuff.

Sankt Otten / Majeure
Split

Available as either Digipak CD with 3D print or 180gram vinyl in gatefold sleeve with free digital download and 3D print from Denovali. A split record from Majeure (Zombi’s A.E. Pattera) and German duo Sankt Otten. File somewhere between your blade runner soundtrack and Brian Eno. Lush electronica soundtrack to an unpenned 80’s epic film. ARPs galore!

Petrels
Flailing Tomb

The Petrels sound is a huge one, shooting high into the sky and falling down all around the listener. Flailing Tomb, his latest, is influenced seemingly by a little bit of everything under the sun: sonically, it contains a large choir in addition to the usual Petrels pallette. Released on 180g vinyl and on CD by the Denovali label.

Ricardo Donoso
Deterrence

Available on CD or 180 gram 12” vinyl. Brazil born, Boston based composer Ricardo Donoso’s dark ambient debut Deterrence as released on extremely limited (80 copies only!) cassette in 2010. Belonging somewhere between Deaf Center and Kreng it’s getting a much needed wider release through Denovali Records.

Ricardo Donoso
Sarava Exu

Available on 180 gram 12” vinyl LP with special 3D print in various colors with download code included, as well as CD digipak. Brazilian composer Ricardo Donoso who currently lives in Boston draws on his disparate compositional projects of Scuba Death and Ehnahre to create these violently evolving dark pieces which you could neatly file alongside Demdike Stare and Raime.

Pan & Me
Ocean Noise

Pan & Me is in fact Christophe Mevel, a dark ambient artist who has previously made some seriously droning, evil jazz as part of the Dale Cooper Quartet. His solo project takes more from neo-classical than from jazz, bringing in electronic elements more formally to create a variety of sustained sounds, be they ambient pieces, field recordings or guitar abstractions. 'Ocean Noise' is his second record and suggests he's a man of many soundscapes. 

Blueneck
King Nine

Proggy crew Blueneck have a new record, 'King Nine', and it's oh so serene: synth resounds around the corners of songs, while guitars shimmer and build to climaxes like the band are on some This Will Destroy You hype, tempered by pianos and the soft vocals of Duncan Attwood. 'King Nine' sounds like Porcupine Tree entering their pop phase but still having a lot of time for the weird, wonderful space they created.

Origamibiro
Collection

An eclectic collection of noises, sounds and melodies, this collection of Origamibiro’s first two albums is a must-have for the fans. Including an album with remixes as well, this release (on 4LPs!) one helluvan exhaustive document on these sound collage magic-/musicians, which will please both collectors and newbies.

Federico Albanese
The Houseboat and the Moon Reworked

The Houseboat and the Moon Reworked is a series of collaborations between Federico Albanese and various producers. These pieces combine elements of contemporary classical and film music with all sorts of electronics thrown into the mix. What is left is highly expansive and intense soundscapes, which float and drive to various destinations. This 12" vinyl is released on Denovali and comes with a download code - limited stock too!

Matthew Collings
Silence Is A Rhythm Too

Matthew Collings is a Scottish-based composer. Not only being a solo recording and live artist, he collaborates regularly with artists from all kinds of fields including musicians (Ben Frost, Dag Rosenqvist from Jasper TX, Denovali label mate Talvihorros, Christos Michalakos or Euan Mcmeeken with whom he forms the duo Graveyard Tapes), dancers and filmmakers. His music can be roughly described as 'an elemental whorl of electro-acoustic (de)composition' (Boomkat.com), ranging from tiny delicate moments of intimacy to all consuming noise. Stepping away from song-like structures, which filled his previous record, “Splintered Instruments”, creates more spacious sounds and evokes the impression of time stretched through the three dimensions. Featuring brass ensembles and a string quartet the instruments and sounds are full of cracks, breath, embedding rough materials informed by luscious intentions. Real instruments and real acoustic spaces are used as much as possible during the production such as the electronics, were played out into concert halls and large rooms and re-recorded. “Silence Is A Rhythm Too” keeps an eye on the small textural details as it is about harmony and physicality in the moment where silence and noise meet.   CD:digipak. Vinyl: thick sleeves + thick printed inner sleeves, 180g vinyl, different vinyl colours, free download. Tracks: 01. Stills 02. Everything you love will end up of the breeze 03. Cicero 04. Toms 05. I am made of endless hours 06. Silence is a rhythm too

Ensemble Economique
Melt Into Nothing

“Melt Into Nothing” is Ensemble Economique’s most lucid seance to date. The prolific Humboldt County musician has stripped layers off of his trademark haze but retained the beautiful desolation that’s earned him a rabid fanbase. The solo project of former Starving Weirdos member Brian Pyle, Ensemble Economique has crossed a land bridge from apocryphal world music and dusty soundtracks to gauzy 4AD-style atmospherics. Trellises of guitar embolden Pyle’s whispered, threadbare lyrics. On “Hey Baby”, the itinerant tone feels like an update on Neil Young’s stark and beautiful soundtrack for Jarmusch’s “Dead Man”. “Melt Into Nothing”, like that beautiful film music, evokes the great American expanse. Field recordings slip in and out of the mix. On “Fade for Miles”, Pyle’s adroit effects and backwards tape manipulation make the long trail on his vocals fade into waves on a rocky beach. CD: digipak. Vinyl: thick covers + thick printed inner sleeves, 180g vinyl, different vinyl colours, free download.

Petrels
The Silver Chimney Club / Wat Tyler

Droning through the British countryside, Petrels has finally remastered and released these two tracks on a physical medium. Clocking in at 17 and 22 minutes respectively, The Silver Chimney Club/Wat Tyler are two songs that tell a noisy story. Recommended for fans of long, slow ambient and intense drone. Pressed on 180gr vinyl.

The Alvaret Ensemble
Skeylja

A collaboration between Dutch Frysians and Icelanders, Skeylja is a soft, haunting collection of songs that all seem to ooze the greyness of the North Sea. With horns that stir memories of ships passing by in the distance, this album will leave you in weary nostalgia for the lonely lighthouse where you spent so many winters by yourself, writing solemn poems in Frysian.

Birds of Passage
This Kindly Slumber

This Kindly Slumber is the third album by Birds of Passage, AKA New Zealander Alicia Merz. The sound is made up of layers of ethereal ambiance underneath Merz’s philosophical poetry. For fans of Zola Jesus, Cocteau Twins, Sigur Ros and Grouper. This Kindly Slumber is available on vinyl LP and CD.

Thisquietarmy
Hex Mountains

Thisquietarmy is Eric Quach, with Scotty Rooney on drums, bassist Dorian Williamson and vocalists Émilie Bresson and Jeanne Peluard for this album. Post-rock,booming drone soundscapes meet thundering drums and eerie shrieks. Double 180g coloured vinyl on Denovali as well as CD. Definitely a headphone album to really explore the introspective textures of the tracks.

Piano Interrupted
The Unified Field

Denovali presents the second album from Piano Interrupted, the duo of Tom Hodge and Franz Kirmann. True enough, piano is the central instrument of The Unified Field (a baby grand piano, as it happen), but it is constantly rubbed up against electronic and string textures. Thoughtful work, available on both CD and coloured vinyl.
