Kepler
Attic Salt

New Kepler Album 'Attic Salt' is out on Resonant. This is kind of depressing but beautiful. This is the third album from the Canadian guys and their first in three years. This album has already come out in the states. Not really my kind of thing this, although there is a dark humor to the lyrics which is interesting. Similar to ...view item »

Stafraenn Hakon
Ventill/ Poki

Stafraenn Hakon I struggle with. Not the music but the name. It's so hard to spell for us English types. My keyboard doesn't even do that funny ae thing. Anyhoo their new album (their third I believe) sounds rather like Sigur Ros to me. Floaty drifty instrumental soundscapes of floaty driftyness. It makes me feel sleepy which can ...view item »

Stafraenn Hakon
Glussi Christmas

Arrived far too late for Christmas is Stafraenn Hakon doing a take on 'Do they know its Christmas'? The problem is now that its after Christmas you'll never want to hear this song for a long while. But I'll review it on its merits anyway. Its a slow take on what is, lets face it, a great song but you really have to wonder what the point ...view item »

Borko
Trees & Limbo

Borko are from Iceland and they have a 12" out this week on the Resonant label called Trees & Limbos. This might seem like a lazy comparison but it sounds an awful lot like Mum and if you like Mum thny I think you'll like this too. Pretty twinkly electronica and I'll be taking ...view item »

Esmerine
If Only A Sweet Surrender

1st up is the Esmerine CD on Resonant which is dark classical music in a soundtracky vein. I guess like the more bits of Godspeed in places but without the noisy bits. Quite nice but on 1st listen it didn't set my arse on fire..... Though fter repeated listens If Only A Sweet Surrender turns out to...view item »

Library Tapes
Feelings For Something Lost

Another decent release this week courtesy of the Resonant label. This is from LIBRARY TAPES who are a swedish duo comprising of David Wenngen and Per Jardsell. The 'Feeling For Something' CD is comprised of heartwarming, gentle piano peices, static crackly glitchy sounds and mela...view item »

port-royal
Afraid To Dance

Now post rock Italians Port-Royal with their new album Afraid to Dance (which is how I feel most of the time until "Its raining men" hits the turntables.. I jest of course).The album sounds pretty ethereal spacey rock/pop/electronica which takes you on a echoy journey through a valley of green trees and bright flowers. At times it has mom...view item »

Stafraenn Hakon
Skvettir Edik A ref

I think my other favourite thing of the week is the Stafraenn Hakon CD on Resonant which is just 100% beauty on a stick. Think of yr favourite things and times 'em by 10 (if that's possible) and you'll get an idea of how lovely this is. Electronics and acoustics with an Icelandic flavour. Drifty, pretty, sl...view item »

Emery Reel
For And Acted Upon Through Diversions

Staying on the whole RAWK tip, we've got a really cool treat for all you people who lapped up those cheeky Texans EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY!!!!! Well, it's not a new sonic unleashing from those noisy bastards, but a lavishly packaged CD from fellow Stateside soundscapers Emery Reel called 'For & acted upon throu...view item »

port-royal
Flares

From Grime to leftfieldpostspace rock hailing from the wilds of Genoa in Italy, here come Port-Royal. Collapsing comfortably between the ethereal flab of Sigur Ros & the polished head-scapes of EITS, 'Flares' is an absorbing & innovative progression for my ears at least. Atmospheric is a word that my internal thes...view item »

Our Sleepless Forest
Our Sleepless Forest

Our Sleepless Forest: S/T (Resonant) Has got everyone raising their voices in the office as it's like an ambient, shoegazing library in here. The echoes echo, the guitar sounding electronics shimmer and the back beat shuffles in a percussive, overwound clock kinda way. This is like the methodone electronica produced by those wonderful l...view item »

Carta
The Glass Bottom Boat

Carta 'The Glass Bottom Boat' on Resonant. A melancholic instrumental with jangly repeating guitars and fluttering beats not unlike Hood. Moody and smoky it's an album for a hot bath as it builds with aural textures and shoegazy crescendos. Got geezers from Subtle and Charles Atlas in the line up. Track 8 Features some nice vocals by Sarah Bell whi...view item »

Small Sails
Similar Anniversary

OOOOoooh it's been a bit since I had anything to review on Resonant.. I think it was that Yellow6 CD... Playing at the moment is 'Similar Anniversaries' by Small Sails. I almost mistook the name for small snails. Speaking of which they're was the biggest slug I've ever seen scoffing leaves in the front garden the other day. It was proper massive my...view item »

Stafraenn Hakon
Gummi

Stafraenn Hakon A.K.A Olafur Josephsson has his fourth long player out on Resonant. 'Gummi' is more of that trademark Icelandic warmth that melts the snow. Acoustic elements fuse with gentle vocals and atmospheric electronics to create a cinematic album that will appeal to fans of Sigur Ros. CD only. (this is a total twinklefest!!- P x) ...view item »

yellow6
Painted Sky

YELLOW 6 has joined the Resonant camp for new full lengther (cheeky cheeky) 'Painted Sky'. The title sums up this guys sound perfectly. The album begins with 'I Know I Shouldn't (But I do)' which makes me think of Angelo Badalamenti's 'Twin Peaks' score. The album evoles into what could be a road movie or spaghetti western soundtrack. You get the f...view item »

Olvis
Bravado

Anyway someone who didn't get a nomination at the Brits was OLVIS with his new album titled Bravado. I thoroughly enjoyed his last album as they guy knows how to string a tune together loaded with atmospherics and melody (some lovely thrown in as well for good measure). One thing I really noticed on this album is how much he sounds like Richar...view item »

Blindfold
Blindfold

Also in is the new CD by Blindfold on Resonant. Which if you didn't know is is some dude called Biggi from Ampop. Shame on you if you didn't know. This is very pretty twinkly and Icelandic sounding. I really don't want to say this at all cos it may be obvious 'n all but it sounds just like the spit of Sigur Ros...view item »

This Is Your Captain Speaking
Storyboard

After hurling a stack of utterly turgid indie gubbins at me to comment on last week, Phat Phil has mercifully relented & given me some rekkids I can relate to this week. Been a bit weary of the genre once dubbed post-rock recently. It's often sleepy time music but unfortunately it was developing a tendency to send me into a somatic dribble ...view item »

Dialect
Buildings With Towns In

Also most excellent is the debut 12" by Dialect on Resonant. This is 5 tracks of sparkling electronic beauty, reminiscent of Arovane, EU, Maps & Diagrams & some Scottish guys called Boards of Alaska or summat. Just an astonishingly accomplished record no more, no less. Just pr...view item »

Whip
Atheist Lovesongs To God

Something new on Resonant this week that isn't from Iceland. yes I was shocked too.... It's a CD by Whip which I stuck on and forgot what I'd put on (seconds later... it doesn't take long) and I honestly thought I'd put Will Oldham on. I had to go and grab the CD sleeve to look at what I'd put on... 'Ah Whip' I thoug...view item »

Sk/um
Pagu Fallsins

Continuing in an electronic vein, we have the Sk/um album in on Resonant. This is the work of Skurken & Prince Valium Kynna hence the chopped up name. Icelandic electronic pop par excellence, very much for fans of Mum, Isan, Arovane & all things twinkly. Just don't say Indietronic...view item »
