WIDT x Christoph de Babalon
TEYAS

A quite unexpected but most welcome move from German producer Christoph de Babalon, hooking up with WIDT (an audiovisual duo of Antonina Nowacka and Bogumiła Piotrowska) for a sort of gothic opera, combining his darkside sound design with Antonina's arresting vocals. ‘TEYAS’ resides somewhere at the intersection of avant-gar...view item »


Kevin Drumm
Gtr​/​Synth 2000

This is a short but sweet tape of noise superman Kevin Drumm rocking it with a guitar and synthesiser set-up, wrenching juicy textures and potent tones out of the gear. Gtr / Synth 2000 was released by Bocian Records last year, but it sold out so soon that they’ve done up a limited re-press of 90 copies. C30 casse...view item »

Russell Haswell
Constitutional

Here’s a 2014 session from deranged synth-noiser and Consumer Electronics / Autechre associate Russell Haswell! Constitutional, which the liner notes tell us was recorded in one evening, is a typically Haswellian slab of beat-driven modular synth noise, and it oug...view item »

Kevin Drumm
Kitchen

We finally scored some copies of this clear vinyl plate from the excellent Bocian label. It follows Drumm’s ‘Crowded’ record for the imprint which was one of my personal highlights of 2012. ‘Kitchen’ begins with what is apparently violin and...view item »

Robert Piotrowicz
Old School Made of Gold

Robert Piotrowicz deals in electroacoustic modular synthesis, and the two pieces presented on Old School Made Of Gold show us that he is damn good at it. The sound field is filled with carefully balanced tones and sharp little details: a composer’s ear is definitely at play here. Transparent red vinyl 12” on...view item »

Saturn and the Sun
Journey To The Center Of Your Mind

Saturn & The Sun are a Swedish drone duo made up of Joachim Nordwall and Henrik Rylander. Journey To The Centre Of Your Mind features oppressive, heavy drone pieces the size of planets. The music leaves you feeling like you’ve landed in some post-apocalyptic wasteland. Side On...view item »

Tomasz Krakowiak
Untitled

These sounds on 'A' really suit my current mood with the sun blazing through the window and the sounds of multi-layered cymbals acting like shards of glass with the light reflecting and refracting off each surface creating prisms in my mind. I'm not entirely sure what process is involved in the creation of these sounds but the end result is like...view item »

Kevin Drumm/ Jerome Noetinger/ Robert Piotrowicz
Wrestling

Slightly disappointing to read that the concept of this record is not about The Ultimate Warrior taking the Belt from Hulk Hogan at an afternoon of WWF Wrestlemania. Rather it is about The Angel wrestling with Jacob (presumably not the King of the cream cracker brand?). The setup here consists of Kevin Drumm handling duties on analog synth and e...view item »

Sean Baxter
Metal/ Flesh

This is pretty sweet. Sean Baxter is an Australian avant-garde percussionist and he makes a right old percussive racket. 'Metal' is what it sounds like... freestyle jazz drumming with loots of rattly bits of metal all over the shop. Or it sounds like someone falling down a long flight of stairs whilst playing the...view item »

Mats Gustafsson With John Russell & Phil Minton
A Duo(S)

The Skronk-Lord himself Mats Gustafsson, captured here on record alongside guitarist John Russell and wild gibbering vocalist Phil Minton! Prime free improvisation from some experienced players, performing together for the first time that I am aware of…? A Duo(S) is released...view item »

Reinhold Friedl
Golden Quinces, Earthed for spatialised Neo-Bechstein

Having worked with everyone from Lou Reed and Lee Ranaldo to Merzbow and Helmut Oehring, Reinhold Friedl seems to be the very definition of that old cliche, ‘the musician’s musician’. A pianist more concerned with what’s inside the piano than the keys (does that make him a percussionist?), this album sees...view item »

Paal Nilssen-Love / Felipe Zenicola / Eduardo Manso / Arthur Lacerda
Bota Fogo

‘Bota Fogo’ was recorded live in concert at Audio Rebel’s Quintavant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and is the new LP from Paal Nilssen-Love and co via Bocian Records, a label that claims to be for extreme fans of electronic and improvised music. Accompanying Nilssen here are his band Felipe Zenicola, Eduardo Manso, Arthur Lacerda ...view item »

Russell Haswell
CONCEPTUAL nO!se

Russel Haswell has worked in a variety of supposed genres but noise (sorry, nO!se) is certainly his first love: he's even made rave music out of it. 'CONCEPTUAL nO!se' is pretty self-explanatory, but to give you a little more information, it's a six-track LP comprised of several noise experiments: it even promises an offering of the good old noi...view item »


Mats Gustafsson / Lasse Marhaug
The Oslo Tapes

Mats Gustafsson, aka King Skronk, aka Skronkmeister General, aka The Skronk Controller, aka Squeaky Pete, aka Skronkmaster Flash, joins forces with another experimental giant Lasse Marhaug (aka The Ear Destroyer, aka Mr Skreee, aka Electro Crunch Bastard, aka Testicle Hazard) on this sanity-obliterating collaboration. Squeaky reeds go head to he...view item »

Paal Nilssen-Love/ Lasse Marhaug/ Massimo Pupillo
You're Next

Well this one’ll wake you up! Here’s the obnoxious, exuberant jazz-noise mega-trio that is Nilssen-Love/Marhaug/Pupillo, and from the outset of opener ‘Necrophiliac Cunnilingus’ they’r...view item »

Kevin Drumm
Phantom Jerk

Here’s a newie from notorious noise terrorist Kevin Drumm. The press release just says “Kevin Drumm: modular analogue synth”, while the sleeve isn’t much more forthcoming, telling me the artist, title, label name and another snippet of information: “6 oscillators, recorded July 2013...view item »

Paal Nilssen Love
Chiapaneca

Whenever I’ve seen him play with Peter Brötzmann or The Thing, Paal Nilssen-Love has always seemed to be playing at least two drummers-worth of drums. With no-one else to get in his way on this this solo LP, a recording of a live set in Mexico, he reaches three or more drummers-worth....view item »

Kevin Drumm
Humid Weather

It’s always a good score to get my mitts on some Kevin Drumm vinyl. ‘Humid Weather’ is no exception. Originally released as a CDr in a micro edition of 20 copies, then available as a digital download, Poland’s Bocian label have pressed this up on good old plas...view item »

Zeitkratzer
Songs

You can always count on Zeitkratzer to surprise… Just when you’ve finally grown used to the idea of a classical ensemble playing noise music, they swing back the other way and start playing Songs! Though, of course, these songs are far from standards, they are drawn together by genuine vocals and lyrics. A ...view item »

Kevin Drumm
Crowded

The latest emission from one of my favourite sound operators comes courtesy of Poland’s increasingly great Bocian label. This fine slab of wax contains two rather splendid tracks recorded  between 2009-20012. The first of which ‘Repetative Algae’ utilizes source material recorded in 2007. What that source materi...view item »

Oren Ambarchi/ Crys Cole/ Keith Rowe

James Rushford & Joe Talia
Paper Fault Line

This is apparently going to be double-beard or uber-chin. We can't quite decide. Utilising everything from viola, cardboard, church organ, megaphone and erm....polystyrene, these two berzerkers revel in creating a strange, sinister sound-world that creeps you out as much as fascinates you...view item »

Robin Fox
More Impossible Futures

When I gave this a spin earlier in the week our man Mike thought it was a fax machine. This is the work of the highly underrated Melbourne artist who did a couple of albums with Antony Pateras and has been released on Room 40 and more recently dropped a stunner for Editions Mego. When...view item »

Robert Piotrowicz/ Carl Michael Von Hausswolff
Split

Two creative and sound arty musicians are paired together here on this split LP from Poland’s Bocian label. Robert Piotrowicz gives us some intense analog synth-work, with overlapping pulse and tone action that’ll blast you. Carl Michael Von Hausswolff goes with subtle, quieter noise works that are a...view item »
