Sekundenschlaf

Looping fragments of jungle and breakbeat rhythms propel squalid synths and samples on this offering from Russian artist тпсб, or TPSB in Latin script. We doubt it stands for Terrebonne Parish School District. The title Sekundenschlaf refers to insomnia-induced microsleep, summing up the hazy, anxious tone of the al...view item »

Awkwardly Blissing Out

Ossia
Dub Hell / Devil's Dance

Limited edition of 250 copies ten-inch plate from Young Echo crew member and Bristol/Berlin DJ/producer Ossia. His mutant strain of technoid dub isn’t concerned with the usual fare of chasing vampires, rather Ossia embraces the darkness and plummets us down into the fiery bowels of hell to prance with demons and toke with the evil cloven-h...view item »

Regis
The Master Side

Straight out of the Boiler Room’s secret torture chamber comes a new vinyl-only offering from Regis on Blackest Ever Black - probably one of the blackest known labels.

Carla dal Forno
The Garden

Following on from her excellent LP of sonic gothic architecture for Blackest Ever Black, Carla dal Forno returns with a 12" of dubby introspections.

Bremen
Eclipsed

Bremen are a duo from Sweden. Despite releasing on Blackest Ever Black, they aren’t techno boys: wow! Instead, they play a blackened form of minimal psychedelia, forging a direct link to some foresty nether regions of the mind. Eclipsed is their second for the label, and stretches out over 2 LPs....view item »


Tropic of Cancer
Stop Suffering

Fitting nicely alongside Blackest Ever Black’s reissuing of Tropic Of Cancer’s Downwards Singles is this new work, the first we’ve heard since 2013.

Naaahhh
Themes

Naaahhh is a sound project that seems to have pushed through to the other side of underground rave culture, simulating the vibes of the next day’s grotty hangovers with queasy electronic tones and textures. And yet Themes still sounds good enough that you’d actually want to listen to it! Vivid dark atmospher...view item »

Tomorrow The Rain Will Fall Upwards
Wreck His Days

This is the debut full length record from this curiously monikered and altogether mysterious collective. It's a wildly ambitious work that takes in astral psychedelics, blissed out dub, music concrete, pummelling soundtracks and what the press release describes as death jazz. Should appeal to fans of Arthur Russell, Swan...view item »


Lustmord
The Word As Power

Not, you may suspect, the kind of music one wants to hear on a hot summers day like this.

Tooth

The second album from Raime lands with a bang: 8 tracks of precision-tooled bass-shudder and industrial wobble.

Aura Legato

Auro Legato was initially released in 2005 by Af Ursin’s own private press imprint La Scie Doree. The limited run of 350 copies meant that, even as this album’s reputation grew, few were able to pick up this semi-abstract suite of drones, folk, jazz, and whatever ...view item »

Tropic of Cancer
Restless Idylls

I don't really know whether Henry Miller was an influence insofar as their elegantly alluring moniker goes but this increasingly renowned LA-based artist Camella Lobo somehow produces incredibly erotic and sensual music from the most spartan ingredients.

William Bennett's new record under the percussive Cut Hands moniker, 'Festival Of The Dead', is based around aggressive, deathly drums, as you'd expect by now -- it's the ex-Whitehouse member's third record under his new alias, and this particular branch of noise continues to sound more organic and rhythmic. ...view item »

Hide Before Dinner

Spooky spooky business here from Fingers, a trio operating on the Blackest Ever Black label.
