CUTS
Dream Voyager

‘Dream Voyager’ was one of the standout moments of the two Exist EPs that CUTS released earlier this year on Village Green Recordings (Ellis Island Sound, Moon Gangs). The manner in which it builds from portentous opening synthscape to an earth-shaking clima...view item »


CUTS
A Slow Decay

CUTS’ new 12” A Slow Decay delivers on the promise of the two Exist EPs with one more appetite-whetter before his debut full-length A Gradual Decline lands. A Slow Decay, taken from that record, shows off a deep, icy spaciousness that sometimes drifts and sometimes explodes. Plus t...view item »


Jim Copperthwaite
Ballroom Ghosts

Ben Chatwin
Drone Signals

Former Talvihorros chap Ben Chatwin has not been content with releasing one album this year. Instead he has gone back to his sound sources for 'Staccato Signals' and created an entirely new work. 'Drone Signals' as you might guess by the title is a more ambient stretched out work that will appeal to all your dro...view item »


Ben Chatwin
Staccato Signals

Talvihorros remains in hibernation while Ben Chatwin issues a third album under his own name for Village Green. This one began as an attempt to do a purely electronic analogue synth album, but that’s not really our Ben, is it? Acoustic ...view item »

Earth Loop

Moon Gangs is the solo jam of BEAK> keyboardist William Young and 'Earth Loop' has emerged out of his love for early day synth movers and shakers such as Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh. Young didn't go out much as a child and so had years to listen to soundtracks and play vide...view item »

Matt Dunkley
Cycles 7-16

Matt Dunkley's continuation of orchestral works sees the modern composer utilise a variety of styles, at times verging on the grandiose, always retaining a filmic drama. Fans of Max Richter will be pleased to notice a yearning melancholy, the slow fluttering strings of 'Cycle 11' being a good case in point....view item »

Asylum For Eve

Dead Light
Dead Light

Who doesn't think about escaping from the city from time to time? Well the folks from Dead Light escaped from stinking old London to some rural backwater where they have been free to explore their billowing ambient compositions.  They've used treated tape, prepared pianos and all manner of experimental tomfoolery to cr...view item »

Matt Dunkley
Cycles EP

Matt Dunkley has more than paid his dues as an orchestrator and a conductor, working with most of the big-deal orchestras around and a number of big films: now he’s turning his attentions to original creations. The Cycles EP takes one piece from his recent debut, and bolsters it with remixes from Nigel Wie...view item »


Matt Dunkley
Six Cycles

Matt Dunkley has more than paid his dues as an orchestrator and a conductor, working with most of the big-deal orchestras around and a number of big films (Inception, The Dark Knight…).

David John Sheppard
Vertical Land

Ryan Teague
Last Known Position

Ellis Island Sound
Divisions

Ellis Island Sound always have to be merging one genre with another, and what results is a musical marriage so preposterous it takes a dude in a suit with a handlebar moustache to pronounce "Well, this is preposterous!" to understand just how preposterous it is. Their last record, 'Regions', was billed as a meeting of Can-inspired krautrock and ...view item »


Ryan Teague
Block Boundaries

Ryan Teague is one of those savvy neo-classical types who's able to deftly steer between acoustic and electronic approaches to composition, synthesising the two into emotive soundscapes that move between ambience and melody. 'Block Boundaries' has elements of other composers attached to it: it recalls Steve Reich's 'City Life' and Max Richter's ...view item »

Ellis Island Sound
Regions

The jury is still out on this new Ellis Island Sound album. We had it on in the office whilst I tucked longingly into a sandwich and it was kind of drifting past, but pleasantly I must add. This collaboration between David Sheppard (Phelan/Sheppard, Snow Palms) and Pete Astor (The Loft/The Weathe...view item »


Ellis Island Sound
Intro, Airborne, Travelling

This is a long running collaboration between Pete Astor (Weather Prophets) and David Sheppard (State River Widening, Snow Palms).  The main track i...view item »


John Matthias
Geisterfahrer

Ah, John Matthias the physicist. I’m familiar with Matthias as he’s collaborated with some pretty high profile artists over the years (Radiohead, Coldcut etc) but I wasn’t aware of his prolific solo work, probably due to me not being much of a folksy type. ‘Gei...view item »

Where To Go



Angele David-Guillou
Kourouma

Ooh, this is lovely, it’s quite soundtracky piano-led stuff from someone I’ve never heard of, Angele David-Guillou, and it’s making me think of Yann Tiersen and Ralfe Band’s scores to ‘Amelie’ and ‘Bunny & The Bull’ respectivel...view item »


Adrian Corker
Raise

I’ve had some very pretty music to review today, and this CD is no exception. It’s a lovely bit of restrained neoclassicism from Adrian Corker, who Phil is already aware of because of Corker/Conboy but I haven’t encountered yet because my time in audio retail has been much shorter than his. This is a very nice CD though...view item »


Snow Palms
Intervals

My Friday morning malaise is immediately broken by a quick glance at the press release and a realisation that this is the work of David Sheppard (Phelan/Sheppard/Ellis Island ...view item »

Branches

Keith Kenniff aside from having one of my favourite names in pop music (okay, it's not pop music) is also known as Helios and Goldmund...ie. he's a busy lad.

Ryan Teague
Field Drawings

Ryan Teague sounds like an interesting fella. A minimalist composer, producer and arranger based in Bristol, Teague's film and TV credits boast work for Coca-Cola, Subaru, Universal Music Group and the BBC!! Not frickin' bad going, sir. Nice to see he's also found the time to ...view item »


Mint Julep
Save Your Season



The Dø
Both Ways Open Jaws

This is sounding proper amazing on second listen. A Parisian duo specialising in sultry grown-up pop and tender mature indie with intricate arrangements and delectable hooks, I'm utterly entranced by the conclusion of the second song, 'Gonna Be Sick', a luscious emotive number I find very...view item »
