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,...view item »

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 ...view item »

Pulse Emitter
Aeons

More synth enthusiasts hit the Norman shelves this week courtesy of the ever dependable Aguirre. This time it's Pulse Emitter a.k.a. Daryl Groetsch of Portland, Oregon up to bat. I've not heard this guy's stuff before but he comes highly recommended by that David Keenan bloke from Volvic T...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 t...view item »

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 W...view item »

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 t...view item »

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 toda...view item »

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 n...view item »

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 d...view item »

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 St...view item »

Tidal & Rambutan
Tidal & Rambutan

On this very limited split LP we’ve got a long drone from Tidal (aren’t they a rock band? Not this one anyway) and a long drone from Rambutan. The Tidal one is quite new-agey, concordant, shimmering stuff that goes nowhere slowly and pleasantly. The Rambutan one has more new-a...view item »

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 wel...view item »

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...view item »

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 r...view item »

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...view item »

Transmuteo
Transmuteo

Most bizarre. What I have here is something which starts out like a new age self-improvement piece with smooth, gentle cosmic synth arpeggios and a calm female voice repeating positive mantras for a better you. These gradually become more finance-focused and the synthwork gets slowly more splintered as the voice comfortingly insists “It&rs...view item »

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....view item »

J.D. Emmanuel
Ancient Minimal Meditations

I was heavily disappointed when this LP didn't arrive with our last score from the Aguirre label. Having been really well into his Wizards LP reissue on Important Records and then grabbing a cheeky download of 'Rain Forest Music' this is/was the next piece in the puzzle of this obscure new age synth practitioner...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

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 ti...view item »

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 back...view item »

L.R.J Martens & Ada Van Hoorebeke
Eternal Landscapes

This was originally issued as a cassette on Cetacean Nation Cassettes and is of course Lievens of Dolphins Into the Future. He and Ada have collaborated before but that's all the info I can find on here. The first side of the record begins with strange liquidy sounding tropical percussion which sounds like it's being played beneath the ocean, it...view item »

GNOD
A Somnambulists Tale

On this Gnod record there's a spooky atmospheric loop with xylophones and synth xylophones underpinning the first side like a Philip Glass horror soundtrack and there's a sample of a man rambling on just too quiet to make out properly and there's a typewriter clicking away and then there's some synth panpipes...view item »

Orphan Fairytale
My Favourite Fairytale

Here we have four epic side long tracks of lo-fi psychedelic/ new-age/ ambient from Belgium’s Eva Van Deuren. At the risk of sounding slightly sexist, what’s striking about Eva’s sound is a very delicate, pretty, feminine bea...view item »

Quiet Evenings
Impressions

I just tackled the new age weird-out of the new Transmuteo album and now I’m getting stuck into the cosmic healing synth-drone smoothness of the new Quiet Evenings LP. I feel like I’m on a day out at the spa or something, only with more shouting and papercuts. Quiet Evenings is of course t...view item »

Expo '70
Inaudible Bicoastal Trajectory

When you discover that this LP consists of two side-long tracks entitled 'Hypnotic Brain Cloud Float' and 'Mystical Bamboo Garden Cultivation' I think you know it's gonna be business as usual for Expo 70. Both tracks were recorded live in the Autumn of 2010; one in concert, one for a radio session. Both these tracks are Justin Wright performing ...view item »

Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier
L'Enfant Sauvage

Roughly translating as 'the child sausage', this is two sides of ambient experimentation from a lovely Belgian lady who, due to her being female in the male dominated world of loop pedals I'm going to lazily compare to Grouper but just as easily I could compare this to the drifting twilight ...view item »

Sean McCann
The Capital

This label is become quite the stable for blissed out synth zones. This is Sean's second wax offering and the opener ' Aerial Sapphire Show' is just the tonic, offering up ecstatic, soul stirring synthesizer textures. The record progresses in fine style but I can't help but think it may just have peaked too early. That's not to say that there is...view item »

Nova Scotian Arms / Motion Sickness Of Time Travel

They occasionally perform together under the guise of Quiet Evenings and have put out a bunch of rad tapes on their Hooker Vision label.

Stellar OM Source
Heartland's Suite

More cosmic psychedelia on Aguirre now, this time from Stellar Om Source, which is the project of Dutch visionary Christelle Gualdi, who also designed the album's crazy neo-psych nightmare of a sleeve. Tripped out stuff. As for the record itself, we're in synth central here, drinking a synth and coke and sucking on a syntharette. The first side ...view item »

Burn those guitars kids >>>> Synthesizers are all the rage! Heheh it seems there is a new wave of synthesizer music happening at the moment. I must admit I've not heard of this guy before but looking at his discography he's been busy with a ton of underground releases. Here he is totally in New Age mode, another style that seems to h...view item »

Brother Raven
Diving In To the Pineapple Portal

Brother Raven are Jamie Potter and Jason E Anderson, a Seattle based duo whose primary goal is to explore the inner sanctum of the synthesizer zone. 'Diving Into The Pineapple Portal', originally made available to only a few pals on tape, has been deemed worthy of a full on vinyl release by Aguirre and it's easy to understand why.

Red Electric Rainbow
Dark Days

This LP from the man known to some as Daniel D. Smith and to others as D.Diddy is a proper New Age workout. It almost made me start meditation classes in order to find out who I am and what is this reality and try to answer some of life's more oblique questions... and not at all letch at foxy hippie girls. It starts off with electric wind-chimes...view item »

Innercity

Another slice of ambient fun coming my way...This time it's Antwerp's synthscaper/soundmanipulator and anti-musician Innercity delivering the goods. I know little about this artist but it would appear that he's been very busy of late with releases on Taped Sounds, Ikuisuus, Rotifer, Ruralfaune, Upstairs and his own Why So Serious imprint.
