Ian William Craig
Meaning Turns To Whispers

Norman fave Ian William Craig is back again with a reissue of his earliest, piano-based album: not in a straightforward way though. While the improvised melodies he plays have that pristine neo-classical Frahm-esque beauty to them, Craig has tweaked, looped and manipulated the source piano via tape, creating some totally different textures. Mmmmmm. Meaning Turns To Whispers is limited to 500 LP copies, on Aguirre.

Sacred Tapestry
Shader Complete

Dizzyingly productive alias-hopper Ramona Xavier (Vektroid, Macintosh Plus, dstnt et al), best known as a vapourwave heavyweight, reworked her 2012 album Sacred Tapestry in 2016 and now here it is again, getting its first wax treatment from Aguirre. Ranges from cloudy ambience not unlike even Alva Noto’s Xerrox stuff to more typical, screwed old jingletastic vapes.

New Dreams Ltd.
Sleepline

Ah so this is another project of Ramona Vektroid, the vaporwave pioneer who made that Floral Shoppe record you all so love as Macintosh Plus. Sleepline was written in 2013-14 but only released in 2016 saw Vektroid using her plunderphonic tactics pitch shifting found sounds to induce a hazy disorientating feel to her music. A vital companion to the hugely popular Floral Shoppe.

Infinite Sound
Contemporary African-Amerikan Music

Aguirre present a special 1975 suite of explorative free jazz by Roland P. Young’s Infinite Sound outfit. Contemporary African-Amerikan Music is a politically and spiritually conscious record, mixing jazz, avant-garde and African musical influences into a seriously rich and powerful sound. Remastered reissue with liner notes by Julian Cowley.

Black Artist Group
In Paris, Aries 1973

1973 session by Black Artists Group, recorded in Paris. Though this would be filed under Free Jazz in most record stores, In Paris, Aries 1973 spends a lot of time exploring territory some distance from the sax blowouts you might expect from that genre. Lots of thoughtful activity, with a great deal of interesting percussion as well as yer trumpets and trombones. Valuable reissue, with liner notes by Julian Cowley.

Andreolina
An Island In The Moon

Reissue of 1990s Italo-ambient minimalist charmer An Island in the Moon by Andreolina, portmanteau-tastic moniker of composers Pier Lugi Andreoni and Silvio Linardi. Besides piano and samples from Riccardo Sinigaglia on a couple of tracks, it’s all just a pair of synths and a Roland S50, resulting in light, fluid, melodic and very expressive works.
  • Vinyl LP (ZORN55LP)

Ōgon Batto
Hedoro

Its Ogon Batto! The name of the game from this Belgian is a highly synthetic synthesis of Japanese-style sounds, put together with synthesisers and often suggesting a surrealistic video game. Hedoro has the feel of an exotic fantasia for the digital age, and will surely appeal to fans of some of what Oneohtrix Point Never has been up to in recent years. On Aguirre.

Steve Lacy, Yuji Takahashi, Takehisa Kosugi
Distant Voices

This 1976 meeting of three avant-jazz heavyweights gets reissued by Aguirre (La Monte Young, Steve Reich, Terry Riley). Pianist Yuji Takehashi - a player so innovative that Iannis Xenakis composed especially for him - joined forces with soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy and electric violinist/Fluxus favourite Takehisa Kosugi in a 1975 recording session while Lacy was in Japan. The resulting record employs unusual techniques - at times Takahashi plays with bells attached to his hands while Lacy pressed his saxophone up to the skin of a kettle drum - to create this surreal piece. Distant Voices takes in free jazz, cosmic jazz, post-minimalist composition and serialism.

Taj Mahal Travellers
August 1974

Reissue of album by Japanese experimental group Taj Mahal Travellers, though they only managed to travel to the Taj Mahal in 1972, 3 years after their inception. 90 minutes of improvised ambience and drone, under the coordination of Kinji Hayashi. Released on Aguirre with liner notes by The Wire contributor Julian Cowley.

Randall McClellan
The Healing Music Of Rana Vol. 2

Originally a 1983 cassette release, these two tracks recently resurfaced as part of a tape boxset on Sun Araw’s Sun Ark label, and appear here on vinyl for the first time. McClellan employs Moog synths and a rigorous compositional process in these immersive long-form pieces, designed for therapy and meditation. This isn’t massage parlour, crystals and incense guff, but New Age at its most potent and time-bending, to rank alongside the works of Steve Roach, Laraaji and Pauline Anna Strom.

Fifty Foot Hose
Cauldron

Fifty Foot Hose are an experimental psychedelic band from California. Cauldron was originally released in 1967. This reissue is the first since its initial release. The band took the rock music of the day added experimental electronics, jazz and far-out song structures. The result is one which still sounds pretty left field today. If you’re a fan of Silver Apples and The United States of America, you should probably give this a spin. Limited edition of 1000 on 180g vinyl.
  • Vinyl LP (ZORN48LP)

France
Occitanie

The repetitive strains of bass, drum and hurdy-gurdy playing three-piece, France, will have you in a trance with their pulsating and pounding rhythms. The band are made up from members of Tanz Mein Herz, Toad and Jerico, whilst all three are members of the Novia Collective. Occitanie is a recording of a non-stop ferocious late night live set.

Maggi Payne
Crystal

Maggi Payne’s 1986 Crystal was first released on Mimi Johnson’s very important Lovely Music label. Crystal is mighty suite of electroacoustic soundscapes, using elaborate multi-tracking, spatialization effects and processing of synths and flutes alike. It’s a record of great dynamic and textural range, sure to delight fans of abstract, sometimes noisy music, and it's great to see it get a reissue here, thanks to Aguirre.

J.D. Emmanuel
Rain Forest Music

After making a handful of ambient new age albums in the early 80s J.D. Emmanuel basically stopped, moved house and left all of his records there. Luckily rediscovered this album caused enough of a stir to see him return to music and now get reissued through Aguirre. Heavily inspired by Terry Riley and Steve Reich, Rain Forest Music is filled with serene twinkling synth melodies and calm field samples that sooth the soul.

Enhet for Fri Musik
Inom Dig, Inom Mig

Enhet for Fri Musik are an underground Swedish supergroup, including members of acts like Sewer Election, Blod and Makthaverskan among others. Inon Dig, Inom Mig showcases their strange sound: improvised folk music made with field recordings and tape-manipulation as well as haunted guitar, vocals etc. Released in a slender edition of 150 LPs on Aguirre, in screen-printed sleeves.

James Ferraro
Rerex

Former the Skaters chap and actual skater James Ferraro has forged an idiosyncratic path over the last few years producing a dazzling array of musical styles and in fact winning the coveted the Wire Album of the Year in 2011. 'Rerex' is a wildly ambitious three hour extravaganza using cheap casios, loops and found sounds to lull us into his musical world.

Tarotplane
First

Baltimore resident PJ Dorsey releases his first album as his solo project Tarotplane. First is a nicely psyched-out journey, with tasty lashings of komische. Guitars are treated and reverbed, tape loops and field recordings filter in and out of the mix, and the results are all-round transportative. LP release on Aguirre.

Brannten Schnure
Sommer Im Pfirschhain

Brannten Schnüre are a dark, dark folk project from Germany. Mournful songs (some taken from the Greek rebetika tradition) are swathed in thick cloaks of atonal accordion, flute and guitar, for a beguiling and intriguing experience. Sommer Im Pfirschhain won’t comfort you on a winter night, but it will affect you. Released on Aguirre.

Komodo Haunts
Suijin

Some psychedelic drone music to bathe yourself in from Komodo Haunts. He’s actually called Ollie and from Lincolnshire. With a mix of analogue and digital, Suijin pulsates and woozes, shimmers and squirms and is ultimately captivating with its rhythmic and intertwined layers of sound. Limited to 250 copies.

Xiphiidae
Pass Hidingly Seek

Xiphiidae is a solo project from the man behind underground cassette label Housecraft, and has, in the manner of small tape labels, been releasing examples of his ambient abstractions steadily for years. Usefully, Pass Hidingly Seek has now been picked out for vinyl release by the Aguirre label, giving a useful in-point to the newcomer.

Tim Robertson
Outer Planetary Church Music

Tim Robertson set out many years ago to make music that would fit into the imagined future temples of Saturn and Neptune. After nearly throwing away all of the original masters in a fit of pique, just two tapes remained, to be restored and released only now, on Aguirre. Spacey semi-new age keyboard ambience, on milky white vinyl.

Xiphiidae
Quaking Myth

This is Xiphiidae, also known as Jeffry Astin, label boss of cassette-meisters Housecraft. On the experimental label Aguirre, two of his albums have finally seen their much deserved vinyl release! This is Quaking Myth, in which esoteric synthesizers create a minimal landscape that is lush at the same time. Try to keep your cool!

Joel Vandroogenbroeck
Meditations Vol. 2

The 'Meditations' series is a far cry from Joel Vandroogenbroeck's debut record 'Biomechanoid', which created a barren dystopia through its dark, chilling ambient soundscapes. Here, Vandroogenbroeck turns to a brighter sound, full of oscillations and natural outdoor sounds -- these provide the backdrop for his masterful flute playing, which flits through the New Age landscapes seamlessly. 'Volume II' continues to bring the sounds of music together with the sounds of the world.

The 'Meditations' series is a far cry from Joel Vandroogenbroeck's debut record 'Biomechanoid', which created a barren dystopia through its dark, chilling ambient soundscapes. Here, Vandroogenbroeck turns to a brighter sound, full of oscillations and natural outdoor sounds -- these provide the backdrop for his masterful flute playing, which flits through the New Age landscapes seamlessly. 'Volume I' moulds together the incidental sounds of the world with what Vandroogenbroeck can leave behind himself.
