Map165
Of Adam Sleeping in the Lap of God

Having mastered the kind of ambient drone that seeps into you so that the serenity saturates your very bones, Martin A Smith & Tim Hooper return as Map165 to reorganise entangled sounds and atonalities to make more of the same beautiful evocations. Of Adam Sleeping in the Lap of God is their latest work: a suite in four sections -- 'Of Heaven and Earth'; 'Of the Firmament'; 'Of the Sun and the Moon' and 'Of Eden' -- taking Chartres cathedral's north portico as inspiration. Comprehensive, spiritual sounds eked from elegant stone structures, field recordings and guitars.

Isnaj Dui
Poiesis

Isnaj Dui, aka experimental musician Katie English, presents her new full-length Poiesis. True to form, she continues to blend sparse motifs created from all sorts of electronic and acoustic sources. Her trademark Orientalist flute is present, if less so than previously. Slow and artful, English covers a spectrum from playful to quite sinister and tense. Poiesis comes in a hand-stamped sleeve, as with all Rural Colours releases.

Guenter Schlienz
Peace

The 18th album from Guenter Schlienz is his first for the Rural Colours label, now up to RC082. Schlienz named the work Peace after noticing lots of friends ending their emails with the monosyllabic signoff. He then began to think what it meant; the recordings are the result of meditations on Peace, tranquility and the writing of Henry Miller. It’s an album of tenderly romantic, introspective sounds made with beloved vintage instruments, synths, organ and guitar. 100 only, with artwork by Katie English.

Leigh Toro
Layers of Ash

Leigh Toro has Layers of Ash released on lovely Rural Colours (RC081). For his third -- if you don’t count his Flotel releases on Expanding Records -- granular sounds are frayed round the edges to make textural distortions that highlight the contrasts and contradictions between abrasive frequencies and more subtle resonances. An edition of 100, CDr in nice card and artwork by Katie English.

The Last Sense To Leave Us
A Tribute To Pauline Oliveros

A collection curated by Keiron Phelan (Littlebow, State River Widening etc)and Oliver Cherer (Dollboy) of tributes to the late electron composer Pauline Oliveros. Featuring the likes of Neotropic, Isnaj Dui, the Hardy Tree and Michael Tanner, each artist has fashioned pieces that draw influence from Oliveros musical principles. 

Northern Exchange
The Loveliest Lanes We Knew

Northern Exchange were a short-lived duo, operating from either side of the Pennines. They only put together one EP in their time, with three short tracks, and here it is. The Loveliest Lanes We Knew is a sweet set of songs, made with minimal means and (apparently) a deep love of Young Marble Giants. A short but sweet career, captured in full on a 3” CDr. On Rural Colours.

Sam A McLoughlin
The Dawn Trance

Performed on homemade instruments and found objects, and a small selection of analogue synths, Sam McLoughlin crafts incredibly sweet soft percussive jazz, that brings you into his personal space and dreamlike state. If you love you lofi near minimal percussive jazz such as Charles Hayward, Crackle and Slowfoot Records this is for you.

Littlebow
Three

‘Three’ is, of course, the third album by Littlebow. Katie English (Isnaj Dui, The Sly and Unseen) and Keiron Phelan (Orla Wren) ply their ceaselessly shapeshifting musical melange, now with added vocals and harp from Brona McVittie. Joyous times for the summer and beyond. Only 100 of these sweet CDrs in handmade, screen-printed sleeve, designed as ever by Katie English. On Rural Colours.

Sophie Cooper
Count The Days

Exciting new outing from key Todmorden scene-mover Sophie Cooper, usually known for her experimentally-tinged guitar songwriting. On Count The Days though, she brings out her trombone, for a looped-up droney memory-scape that fills the length of a 3” CDr with wonderful power. Just 70 copies, each with hand-printed artwork on Rural Colours.

The Declining Winter / Isnaj Dui
Split

Absolutely gorgeous looking hand numbered split 12" on Rural Colours with screen printed sleeves and additional postcards. The Declining Winter side consists of seven stripped back pop songs recorded in a remote cabin producing a raw, evocative sound that reflects the environment it was made. Overleaf Katie English aka Isnaj Dui puts away her flute and changes to the cello for two longer pieces which are based more on texture and rhythm but have the same feel of isolation as the Declining Winter tracks.  12" vinyl edition 200.

Chihei Hatakeyama and Good Weather For An Airstrike
Falling Sun

Getting Chihei Hatakeyama to play on your record is a sure-fire way to make things just that little bit more serene, his work sounding potently organic through the use of acoustic guitars, piano motifs and little electronic flourishes. On Falling Sun, he joins forces with the equally hushed Good Weather For An Airstrike, who act as soldiers against stress and health imbalance through their found sounds and ambient musical leanings. For fans of that Hammock series that tries to help you sleep -- here's an alternative.

Caught In The Wake Forever / The Sly and Unseen
Split

This 12” split sees the combined talents of acoustic/experimental musician Fraser McGowan aka Caught In The Wake Forever and folk duo Katie English & Jonathan Lees (The Sly and Unseen). This LP captures the former’s reflective and melancholic songs and the latter’s understated extroversion; the result is a captivating collection of fragile and dense soundscapes showcasing their respective deft musical abilities.
