Nite Lite
Landcestors

Landcestors is the work of Nite Lite, who individually go by Myste and Phil French. The record sees the pair artfully shaping and placing field recordings. All the sounds here are familiar, but also completely unrecognisable. The recordings all oscillate together as if they have become one single organic being. 

Foodman
Aru Otoko No Densetsu

Sun Araw’s Sun Ark imprint welcomes leftfield joker-juker Foodman for a new long-player of baffling, sample-shuffling rhythmscapes and a booklet of colourful drawings with the vinyl version. His tendency towards uncrowded layers of rubber-pitched samples plundered from all over and an overall sense of complete carefree delight prevail throughout.

Air Traffic Control Quartet
Blue Raspberry

A blue raspberry. That'll be the day. What a time to be alive, indeed. Air Traffic Control Quartet is an avant-garde prankster's delight, a chase scene happening in a maze, parkour performed in an MC Escher painting. Using obscured melodies, harpsichords, storm samples and weird film motifs, this record truly has something, a bit broken, for everyone. Collage delirium.   

Sun Araw
The Saddle of The Increate

The latest full-length album from Cameron Stallones’ Sun Araw is as strange and blasted / stoned as we’ve come to expect from the project. The Saddle of The Increate, which is apparently about being a cowboy, is full of cascading electronics and dubby structures, with song-singing vocals and licks of countrified pedal steel occasionally pushing through. Pretty out stuff on the Sun Ark label.

Rob Magill
The Owl and The Pussycat

The Owl And The Pussycat is the first vinyl release for Rob Magill, a resident of Southern California who seems to be able to turn his hand to most arty things - musical composition, playing every instrument under the sun, poetry, painting and even owning his own label. He began recording in 2010 and has since made 50 albums with many more in the pipeline. He makes Robert Pollard look like The Blue Nile.  In the past Magill has made music with Eugene Chadbourne, Marshall Trammell of Black Spirituals, Walker Delbo of Fell To Low and performed in Sun Araw Band along with Cameron Stellones and Alex Gray.

SK Kakraba
Yonye

SK Kakraba is part of a mighty lineage of Ghanaian Gyil players; the Gyil being a kind of xylophone. Yonye is a fantastic collection of solo recordings, the buzzing sound of the instrument giving the traditional songs an almost electric tang to them. Plenty of life and energy in this record, which is out on Sun Ark.

S. Araw
Gazebo Effect

Stoned psych-jammer Cameron Stallones’ Sun Araw project appears here in a new and evolved form, as the S. Araw “Trio” XI. Gazebo Effect presents four sides of their explorations, utilising various synths, computer programs and a ‘midi-guitar’ to produce strange shimmery soundscapes. An odd (e.g. good) collection indeed.
