Well I would never have put them two together but it is definitely the former U2 and Bob Dylan producer collabing with breakcore nutcase Aaron Funk of Venetian Snares. Both are, though, Canadian and those lads stick together. Funk did the drums whilst Lanois added pedal steel and weaved the unlikely sounds together. Sure to be one of the most unique records of 2018. Looking forward to hearing the snappily titled 'HpShk5050 P127'.

Richard Devine returns after six years with his new album Sort/Lave. It sees the Atlanta, Georgia-based electronics whizz throwing up opposing textures using his custom built modular system. The pieces flit between sandpapery percussion and glorious ambience. The album was conceived and recorded over the last two years. Triple LP or CD on Timesig, a Venetian Snares imprint.

As the debut offering of Toronto-born solo artists Joanne Pollock is a euphoric and intricate release, consistently caked in beauty. Stranger consolidates the hype around Pollock, which acclaims her as one of the most promising artists from across the pond. Off-kilter pop, with a refreshing sense of experimentation.
Venetian Snares is well known for his ludicrous break mashing at insane tempos and bizarre musical structures. Never shying away from a different approach Traditional Synthesizer Music is his take on the modular synth. Each track made from scratch and each element synthesized, and recorded in one take, then delete, move on to the next. It’s a different approach, but still the Venetian Snares chaos we all love.
First release under the Datach’I name by Joseph Fraioli in a decade: it may be that he was spending all that time building up the monstrous Eurorack modular synthesiser system that System was entirely recorded with. System is released by Venetian Snares’ Timesig label, and certainly carries a little of that project’s unhinged and experimental approach to electronic sound. CD / double LP.
