Monolyth & Cobalt

Those lovely people at Time Released Sound have another offering for us this week with the usual normal/nice packaging dilemma.

Masaya Kato
Trace Of Voices

Masaya Kato's music is gently tethered by barely played piano notes, found sounds and rural ambient fluttering. Trace Of Voices comes together sounding the way minimal music should, each instrument filling a different corner of the room that respects the composition as a whole, while feeling only just a part o...view item »

After a long two month stretch without any Time Released Sound in our lives, the label gets Autumnal and sneezes out the sound art excursions of K’an, better known as Paolo Bellipanni. His previous and even more niche record for Ōnyūdō took place in a glitched out netherworld where abstractions were the new classical, and this record ha...view item »

Strange, delicate experimental songcraft from Porya Hatami and Arovane. Kaziwa features lots of stately piano, creeping around in an uncanny atmosphere of electronics.

Morgen Wurde would like to invite you to drift through empty fields with abandoned farms, huge barns casting long shadows on overgrown fields.

Olga Wojciechowska
Maps And Mazes

Maps And Mazes collects 11 luscious-sounding modern classical works by Olga Wojciechowska.

My my. 65 copies of the bespo...view item »

Gypsy Eyes

Gypsy Eyes produces slightly tense semi-ambient music, his full-length album Nefelibata creeping through an audio landscape that feels very real.

The Doubling Riders

The Doubling Riders originally released Garama in 1991. The album is a strange beast: for the most part it is more or less ambient music, composed out of quiet, leisurely synths and some distant vocal samples. The inspiration is apparently the ancient kingdom from which the record takes its name. Reissued by Time Releas...view item »

Night Shift
Trespassers Guide To Nowhere

We have two versions of this CD - a ”faux-rigami” pop up book of sorts, each hand-bound with unique antique book covers, and including hand printed/typed inserts, and pop-up pages made from the oversized sheets from a 100 year old handwritten ledger…all encased in a handmade...view item »

David Newlyn

Everytime I saw this CD I thought it was the new Ruins CD and I'd say to myself “Oh, Ruins have a new CD out' (as it just says 'Ruins' on the front of it). Then I'd pick it up and realise it was by David Ne...view item »

Six Weeks Were Too Long To Wait

Six Weeks Were Too Long To Wait is the debut album from American, David Gutman, released under the wonderfully named, Drawing Virtual Gardens.

Ghostwriter & Michael Paine

Mark Brend, better known under his spooky alias of Ghostwriter, is joined by collaborator Michael Paine on a collection of compositions that evoke empty English houses where people once used to live but have since evacuated; sentimental piano is at the fore, along with flourishes of guitar, xyloph...view item »

Francesco Giannico

A calming broth of ambience being fed to you by Francesco Giannico. If you haven't guessed, he's Italian and the compositions on Metrophony are based on urban field recordings of the Italian metro. He's added other instruments and post-production bits to give each piece a luscious harmonic substance. It's very swirly, f...view item »

Porya Hatami
Arrivals And Departures

Porya Hatami is an Iranian artist who finds, takes and manipulates sounds, integrating both organic noise and self-made electronic works into one palette. The result is a wavering ambient sound that washes over, while small flourishes of nature appear to actualise the landscape. 'Arrivals and Departures' is both still and constantly moving, for ...view item »

Wolf Hall

Middlemarch is a collaboration between pianist Dimitris Avramidis and ambient soundscaping fellow Ross Baker. Like Grouper melting her guitar into atmospherics, or the grandiose gestures thrown off in the middle of A Winged Victory For The Sullen's ambient passages, 'Wolf Hall' offers a droning representation of a traditional composition. A...view item »


A really nice CD here from Russian duo Daydreamer, titled in tribute to our favourite French writer, thinker (and erstwhile goalie). I'd like to say he was an existentialist but he would have vigorously denied such a thing. Is this an existentialist album? No. It's certainly an excellent collection of thoughtful cinematic ambience, tentative pos...view item »

Colors In The Dark

Time Released Sound have, as we've come to expect, put together a gobsmackingly beautiful but wallet-denting handmade package (check out the press release for details) and a more reasonably priced digipak version of this latest offering by Monochromie, the alias of Marseilles-based composer Wilson Trouv&...view item »

Richard Moult & David Colohan

As usual with Time Released Sound you get two versions of this. A digipack retailing at under a tenner and a limited edition at over £30.  At just 75 copies and composed of original pages from a 100 year old book on the work of the obscure 15th century printer and illustrator, Anton Sorg its probably pretentious enough to provoke inte...view item »

Lyndsie Alguire
Clair Obscur

A cute little package from Canadian piano tinkler Lyndsie Alguire, this comes in a tiny little envelope with 8 Polaroid photos of the lady herself and a hand stamped mini disc, on the musical side this is four tracks of dreamy electronica with Alguire's lush layers of piano and the occasional flouris...view item »


Lots of found sounds and field recordings on this latest disc from Time Released Sound. It has that frail Japanese prettiness all over it combining the crunching sound of leaves, the sea, faraway traffic with semi-random piano prettiness and distant violins. The whole thing is akin to listening to someone play the piano in some rural Japanese en...view item »

Maps & Diagrams
In Circles

Cork. Like it or loathe it, it's here to stay. Limited copies of the new Maps and Diagrams album came in a kind of cork cover with bits of paper and stuff in there (actually a 75 year old text). But that's almost sold out so you might have to make do with the normal digipack version which has a scan of som...view item »

The Ashes Of Piemonte
Winter's Fire

Time Released Sound’s packages just seem to get fancier and fancier. This one here comes in a wax-sealed envelope with a padlock and stuff so I can’t take a closer look but here’s what the press release says is within: “The deluxe version of ‘Winter’s Fire’...view item »

Mikael Lind

Yoshito Murakami
Mu To Eien

Time Released Sound, you’ve really done it now. This is the most preposterously packaged CD I’ve seen in quite some time.

The Inventors Of Aircraft
Where The Light Stops

Comes in two versions. For £33 or so you get the super deluxe insanely packaged version, comes in a hand sewn, 5.5″ x 14″ folding wallet type sleeve…fronted with a numbered, 100 year old stock certificate from the now defunct Time Released Sound Railways Ltd. Each is held c...view item »

Saturday Drones

This is literally a CD of drones that Phil Edwards and Wil Bolton made exclusively on Saturdays during 2011, which is a lovely idea I think. Not just for a record but for a nice way to spend your Saturday afternoons. Actually altho...view item »

Got another newie in from the ever-reliable Time Released Sound today, available in both insanely-fancy-packaging and slightly-fancy-packaging editions, as is the TRS way. This one's from mysterious “sound sculptress” Iden Reinhart, aka Strie, and it's a gentle neoclassical-tinged ambient collection which ranges from lush, heartstrin...view item »

Maps & Diagrams
Get Lost

Well he's a bit silly isn't he, the man with all his maps AND diagrams and he still went and got all lost? Just kidding, it's nice to have a new full length outing from this legendary purveyor of classic ambient electronica and melodic IDM. Opening with some brittle, crackly ...view item »

Joe Frawley
13 Houses And The Mermaid

It's my lucky week. Phil is letting me review the new CD on Time Released Sound instead of doing it himself like he usually does. What a treat. Here on this one, with the usual classy limited handmade packaging, there's five songs of gorgeous experimental neoclassicism mixed with found so...view item »

Wil Bolton
Quarry Bank

Here's another lush CD on the Time Released Sound label!! These things are about the most amazingly packaged things you'll ever see! There's 2 editions o' this one...a standard CD version or a mega limited (100 only) CD in a hand stitched bag (built with fabrics and thread made at the mil...view item »

Evolution of the Human Heart

Well, the first thing to mention about this is the packaging. As ever with Time Released Sound it's a total thing of beauty. The time it must take to put these things together scares me! Each CD comes with a filmic referenced, torn out and hand worked/collaged double sided not...view item »

Paper Relics
Over Exposure

In case you're not familiar with this label you should be. The packaging is awesome! Each release comes out in the fanciest packaging I've ever seen a label do. The limited versions of these come with individually handmade books which are all different. I can't comprehend how long it must take to do 'em and I was half tempted to get 'em all ...view item »

A New Popular Star Atlas

This is one of those releases you pour over for about ten minutes before even taking the disc out!! Wrapped up in a map of star constellations & including a pocket star finder (helpfully a 5" disc!!), this is quality ambience of the highest order. Immediately you're drawn into a soothing aural cocoon by this Belgian...view item »

David Newlyn

The packaging from Time Released Sound releases is among the most gorgeous I've seen. In this case a 3" CD mounted to an old shellac record. The term brittle certainly reflects both the nature of the packaging and the audio. Followers of David's music will be familiar with his releases on Octoberman, ...view item »

Alessio Ballerini
Music from The Puddle

These things are insanely packaged but then you'd hope so for the price. The Shaula one on the label is probably the nicest thing I've ever seen. It's brilliant when there's such attention to detail with packaging. I loves it I does. This CD by Alessio is part of the puddleoid series where the CD comes with a polaroid in a translucent envelope a...view item »
