The Growlers
Not. Psych!

You may think the Growlers would play grungy psych rock and garage but as the title suggests, the band are a much sunnier proposition. Their sound is more in tune with surf and beach pop taking influence from the twangy likes of the Ventures to produce sunny day pop songs high on melodicism and low on dirt. They've squeezed seven tracks onto this EP which mysteriously comes out on post-classical imprint 130701.

Dmitry Evgrafov
Surrender

Russian post-classical artist Dmitry Evgrafov delivers his third album for FatCat’s 130701 subsidiary, and his fourth altogether. Surrender is the Muscovite’s most ambitious effort yet, expanding well beyond his regular range and embracing bass guitar and synth elements as well as an eight-piece string orchestra.

Sylvain Chauveau
Simple

Sylvain Chauveau is French but lives in Brussels. He's one of the slightly lesser known neo-classical composers and is often used as a footnote if folks talk about Max Richter or Nils Frahm. Here is the first ever vinyl pressing of his collection of work for film and rare and unreleased tracks. It is an essential document of a 'much praised but not as well known as he should be' composer.

Yair Elazar Glotman & Mats Erlandsson
Emanate

A talented rotating cast of collaborators that includes Lucy Railton, Maria W Horn and Viktor Orri Arnarson helped composers Yair Elazar Glotman and Mats Erlandsson bring this latest work to life. Emanate exists in a space between classical music and experimental music, using electronic and acoustic sounds to create a distinctive sonic compound.

Clarice Jensen
The experience of repetition as death

Cellist Clarice Jensen has already collaborated with the late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson amongst others on earlier work but for her second album goes it alone on a record which uses the cello and nothing else as a sound source. The album uses the instrument to create loops and electronica that veer far in the direction of more dance-orientated practitioners like Actress. Seems she's doing for the cello what Colin Stetson has done for the sax.

Ian William Craig
Red Sun Through Smoke

Returning to the piano for the first time in a long while, Canadian composer and songwriter Ian William Craig presents a powerful new album in the shape of Red Sun Through Smoke. Recorded in Kelowna over a fortnight in the summer of 2018, when forest fires were threatening to engulf the city and which directly contributed to the death of his grandfather, Craig’s eighth album sounds a mournful and apocalyptic tone.

Shida Shahabi
Shifts

Whilst this is Shida Shahabi's debut release, the Swedish-Iranian began studying and writing music on piano at the tender age of nine. 'Shifts' is informed by a sprawling collection of influences, ranging from The Cure to Mozart and Gilles Peterson to Nils Frahm. But the piece is a cohesive body of stunning piano-driven melody, which knows exactly what it is.

Dmitry Evgrafov
Comprehension Of Light

Moscovite Dmitry Evgrafov follows his 2015 debut 'Collage' with Comprehension Of Light, also on FatCat's neoclassical offshoot 130701. Richter, Jóhannsson and O’Halloran fans rejoice! For his 1st vinyl LP release, Dmitry upscales from electronics to real strings, courtesy Iskra Quartet. Buddies Abul Mogard and Benoît Pioulard are also present. Often recalling avant-garde film soundtracks, the album follows a through-line of redemption with spectral qualities. Includes download.

Resina
Traces - Remixes

Polish cellist Resina knows some real cool people: this remix EP takes two tracks from her Traces album and lets them get worked over by Lotic, Ben Frost, Abul Mogard and even Ian William Craig! With producers of this calibre, and the excellent source material, it will be no surprise to learn that Traces - Remixes is a great and varied listen. Released by 130701.

Ian William Craig
Thresholder

Ian William Craig is always very welcome round these parts, and Thresholder, the man’s first album in eighteen months, demonstrates why. Those tape machines of his are put to work in the construction of an eleven-track, forty-minute sound environment. Deep and gorgeous smeared ambience, on FatCat sub-label 130701.

Shida Shahabi
Homes

Swedish-Iranian composer Shida Shahabi incorporates her different backgrounds in intimate piano-based soundtracks & -scapes. No wonder she’s on FatCat’s modern classical 130701 imprint, among the likes of Max Richter, Johann Johannsson, and Hauschka. For Home, Shida has stuck to the piano, letting her creativity run freely.

Maarja Nuut & Ruum
Muunduja

Estonian violinist and vocalist Maarja Nut joins producer Ruum. Her airy voice and subtle violin create quiet lakes of sound, while Ruum’s electronic soundscapes seem to paint the depths that lie below. Muunduja is a haunting and reflective effort, out on FatCat, one of the finest world-pop/indietronica labels.

Resina / Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch / Shida Shahabi
The Sea At The End Of Her String

Three-part split EP between the three participants in a forthcoming UK tour: Shida Shahabi, a pianist, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, another pianist, and cellist Resina. Exclusive tracks from each artist, representing the breadth and depth of their creative talents. Fans of any and all of the artists will need The Sea At The End Of Her String for the exclusive materials, and anyone new to these musicians should get themselves introduced!

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch
Époques

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a composer and a pianist, and this second album of hers is a mixture of modern chamber music, with her own piano performances bolstered by strings and electronics in order to fully map out her compositions. Epoques is a rich and melancholy listen, both grand and intimate. Released by Fat Cat’s 130701 sub-label.

Resina
Traces

Polish cellist Resina resurfaces on FatCat offshoot 130701 with more of her assured and poised neoclassical narratives, on Traces. The release marks somewhat of a career curve with an increased jaggedness and vitality, and in a bold move she employs her stark vocal to dramatic effect. Drums and percussion add extra dynamism and body to the work.

Ian William Craig
Slow Vessels

Ian William Craig somewhat returns to his tremendously loved 2016 album Centres with an EP that relocates some of those pieces onto voice, piano and acoustic guitar, with just a few licks of subtle tape manipulation lapping at the edges. Slow Vessels proves that Craig’s songwriting is just as powerful when it stands naked as when it is wreathed in fuzz magic. 12” on 130701.

Olivier Alary
Fiction / Non-Fiction

Olivier Alary has produced experimental pop under the name Ensemble for many years, but now produces film soundtrack work under his own name. Fiction / Non-Fiction compiles numerous examples of his really rather luscious pieces, performed by various orchestras, choirs and ensembles. Released by 130701.

Resina
Resina

Rehydrated FatCat imprint 130701 continue to rain down new classical treats with the debut record from Resina, alias of cellist and general sound artist Karolina Rec. Resina emerged from an impressive demo tape and suggests an interpretation of the Polish underground scene -- as with most 130701 releases, it's a medley of both gorgeous and intense sounds.

Ian William Craig
Centres

Ever-prolific tape chemist Ian William Craig is readying yet another record of gorgeous crackle pop. Having broken our hearts with the fragmented opera loops of A Turn of Breath in 2014, he's since released the understated but equally beautiful Cradle For The Wanting for Recital, which consisted of nothing but his vocal run through reel to reels. From there he put out the noisy piano excursions of Zugzwang for Fostex with Patient Sounds and now he returns with Centres, his first record for FatCat's classical imprint 130701. He's one of our favourite artists and this record's early single suggests more accessible and narratively linear songwriting -- and even some percussion. Yes come on.

Dmitry Evgrafov
Collage

Dmitry Evragof joins the currently quite rich scene of young neo-classical piano-based composers with Collage. This record is pleasing on the ear, with Evragof using his compositional talents to build up sweeping orchestral movements around his stately piano. A grand record indeed, on FatCat sub-label 130701.

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch
Like Water Through The Sand

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a French composer who is making her debut release with this record. Like Water Through The Sand is a weighty collection of pieces that usually place the composer’s piano at the forefront, though she also uses electronic treatments and sharp string arrangements to augment the sound. On FatCat imprint 130701.
