Long Distance Poison
Astro Topoi

Deep Distance returns from its slumber with a new slice of kosmische for your weekend cloud nine. It's by New York outfit Long Distance Poison, who grow their music through experimental improvisation and take it from there. Astro Topoi is crafted via generative music processes and sees them deconstruct Krautrock song structure for its own good.

Cosmic Ground
Legacy / The Plague

Deep Distance wanted to release Cosmic Ground's self titled debut in it's entirety but track lengths proved impossible to squash onto vinyl so instead we get two of the best cuts from the disc spread out nicely onto wax. This is excellent long form, sequencer-heavy electronic psych. Turn on, switch off, lie down.

Free/Slope
Abracadabra

As the summer sun waxes heavy on a thousand English garden lawns, why not kick off your shoes, pour yourself a glass of something cold and zone out to some pretty neo-Kraut? Sounds good to me, and here’s just the record for the occasion. Abracadabra, the second LP from Daniel Fridlund Brandt’s Free/Slope project, is an extremely pretty collection of contemporary kosmische that shows off plenty of Can, Neu! and Spacemen 3.

Karen Novotny X
3 Minutes over Brussels

Late 1970's avant garde trio Karen Novotny comprised Hackney-based Anna Bloom, Cy Levene and Niko Nicolotti. Composed in a series of East London squats on a collection of borrowed electronic instruments, this quirky playable postcard is a snapshot of the collective's short-lived career. Will appeal to fans of Krautrock and Suicide, as well as weirder industrial stuff such as Throbbing Gristle.

Slows
13’56 / 13’05

First in a trilogy of limited EPs from Deep Distance, 10” vinyl EP with embossed sleeves presented in label bags. Limited pressing of 300. Matthew Simms is firstly known as the Wire guitarist. Currently working on solo material from his home studio in Kent, this 10” represents his first outing under the moniker Slows.

Yerba Mansa
Yerba Mansa

Crashing into action with a flurry of distorted guitars and schizophrenic drums is s/t - the contorted stab from Manchester's noisy outfit, Yerba Mansa. Hearing the group live is a must, but hearing this collection of anarchic expeditions is the next best thing. Sizzling, stifling and ever so slightly ear-scraping - this is a must for any lover of untamed guitars.

Slows
A Great Big Smile From Venus

Matthew Simms is the guy in Wire who has all that hair and looks slightly out of place. Musically though he fits like a glove though and away from the art rock he makes music as Slows. This third album grew out of Simms faffing about with drum recordings by Matt Schultz (Holy Feck etc) and adding all kinds of sounds whilst playing the drums back in the studio. This has led to a more out there experimental record with nods to the outer space jazz skronk of Sun Ra.

ZOFFF
FFF

Kosmische jam band ZOFFF have probably just been spinning like a gyroscope since they last released a record, patiently waiting for Deep Distance to do the business for them. The inventively titled FFF is finally here, and sees the Brighton band work all subtle and sleuthing towards dominant volumes and grand hypnotic payoff. It's coming out early May and it'll probably sell out then, too. 

Jonas Reinhardt
Conclave Surge

Electronic rhythm time courtesy of Jonas Reinhardt, who intends that this record to carry the vibrations of rituals and ceremonies. Conclave Surge is lovely propulsive listening, mixing fun-time synth and drum approaches with aspects of minimalism and industrial. It’s a heady brew, and it works! Limited vinyl edition of 300 on Deep Distance.

Eat Lights Become Lights
Nature Reserve

Eat Lights Become Lights are excellent modern practitioners of krautrock and kosmische music, keeping the eternal motorik momentum alive with not one but two drummers! Nature Reserve is split between ferociously-forward-moving freakouts and spacier drift-pieces, and it turns out the band excel in both modes. The album is out on Deep Distance in an edition of 500 pink vinyl LPs.

Slows
Slows

Matthew Simms’ (Wire, It Hugs Back) solo ventures as Slows are a complete offshoot from his “normal” works. Falling prey to his modular and analogue synthesiser obsessions, and having already done one EP made entirely with his Farfisa organ, he now combines the organ with modular synth jams and a boat load of effects to create spaced out ambient collages to whisk you away into the starry night.

Cosmic Ground
The Watcher / Vaporized Artefacts

Mind altering truly psychedelic kosmische jams that were recorded at the same time as the now completely sold out 'Cosmic Ground III' LP. That sold out in the blink of an eye and this one time pressing of 300 is sure to follow suit particularly as it's on the ever collectable Deep Distance imprint.

Free/Slope
Daydream Melodies

Here is another psych/kraut release from the good people at Deep Distance. This time it’s from Gothenburg, Sweden based Daniel Fridlund Brand who uses all kinds of influences (Ashra, Harmonia, Miles Davis,  Spacemen 3, Broadcast etc) to make an album which is woozy, organic and otherworldly.

Sula Bassana
Organ Accumulator

Bangs, whirrs and everything else on display here. The decade-deep Krautrocker conjures John Carpenter, Neu!, Massive Attack and the rest on this set of slow burners. ‘Nebelschwaden’ sounds a bit like Vangelis. CD edition on Sulatron comes in a 100% recycled sleeve and features tracks from the previously-vinyl-only Disappear. The wax is splatter vinyl pressed in an edition of 500 copies on Deep Distance.

Zone Six
Forever Hugo

Here's an example of psych rock being fun. Zone Six are a long running improvised trance rock band that feature members of Electric Moon and Sula Bassana. This is a recording of the freaking the heck out at a venue “Graf Hugo“ in Feldkirch, Austria. The sort of amazing place that bands love to play and that councils want to turn into car parks. Pretend you were there by putting on the vinyl nice and loud and dancing around.  

Colin Potter
The Ghost Office

Deep Distance continues its trawl through the back passages of Colin Potter's early '80s DIY electronic tapes with this which was his first full length release. Improbably it was recorded in the quaint village of Sutton on the Forest just north of York. The original cassette has been remastered and includes extra tracks and outtakes. Prime primitive electronics for fans of minimal synth. 

ZOFFF
ZOFFF 1

ZOFFF are a demented improvised psychedelia band with plenty of flare. They are a Brighton-based band featuring the mad talents of multi-band busybodies like Damo Waters (Electric Soft Parade), Al Strachan (everything experimental in Brighton) and the mighty Bic Hayes (Levitation/Cardiacs). ZOFFF 1 was first released in 2014: now it gets a (white) vinyl reissue. On Deep Distance.

Panabrite
Transfer

Norm Chambers’ project Panabrite is a well-respected outlet for rich, melodic synth experimentation. It’s so well-respected, in fact, that when some of the material presented on this LP was released on cassette a few years ago, they were snapped up in moments. Transfer now lands its lovely sounds on Deep Distance, in a clear vinyl edition of 300.

Rhododendron
One

One is the very limited vinyl LP full-length from Rhododendron and follows from the group’s first in-demand 10” Paris Rendezvous/Le Grind. This duo make a noisy radiophonic racket that has been embraced by daring DJs like Andrew Weatherall. Psychedelic DIY krautrock has never been this catchy.

Zone Six
Love Monster

You can tell that Love Machine is going to be a good and proper psych release when you see that it fills this LP (a coloured LP at that) with only four tracks: plenty of room to stretch out, letting the distortion and the delay lead the way. Zone Six go wild and spacey like pro’s: good news! On Deep Distance.

Melodien
Theurgy

Theurgy is a record that works within the rich heritage of early 70’s ambient-komische synth tweakers. Melodien’s tracks tend to be warm and comforting in their melodies, whilst also sliding along with machine-cool efficiency. This yellow vinyl edition is limited to 500 copies only, out on Deep Distance.

Hologram Teen
Post-Apocalypteacakes / Tracksuit Minotaur

Hologram Teen is the solo project of Morgane Lhote, who, I think it is worth mentioning, used to be in goddamn Stereolab! Rad. Post-Apocalypteacakes / Tracksuit Minotaur is a busily inventive 7”, with each track combining drum machines and synth sweeps from the 70’s with miscellaneous other bits (like a gnarly guitar). Clear 7” vinyl on Deep Distance.

Farbfelde
Eins

Farbfelde is a solo electronics project from Mahk Rumbae, who also performs with Oppenheimer MKII and Konstruktivists. Eins is something of a komische record, using a wide range of synthesised sounds to build a lush sound-bed for the listener. Tasty looking orange vinyl, firmly limited to 300 copies!

Pharoah Chromium
Chromosphere

Pharoah Chromium casts a thick synth-spell on Chromosphere, having paid close attention to the likes of Conrad Schnitzler. With two full-side pieces, Chromium conjures up ancient monoliths and deep space in equal measure. The album is pressed to a lusciously surreal picture disc in a limited edition of 300 copies.

Cosmic Ground
Cosmic Ground II

Cosmic Ground are back with their second full-length, creatively titled Cosmic Ground II. Two LPs and only four tracks, so you know that this is going to be some premium, stretched out komische. And so it comes to pass: Dirk Muller leads the listener into some pretty fresh headspaces. 500 copies on Deep Distance.

Autumn of Paekward
Iktsuarpok

‘Iktsuarpok’, the debut LP from Leipzig based Autumn of Paekward, is composed of four extended pieces of ambient drone, built on majestic synth washes over flourishing percussive textures. Evocative of the work of the legendary Florian Fricke and Popol Vuh, this record would find itself at home in 1970’s Germany.

The Cult of Free Love / The Wrestler
Split

This 10” is a Split between The Cult Of Free Love and The Wrestler. Both groups are all about the spacey atmospheres, with The Cult taking a komischey, sitar-led approach that sounds wonderful. The Wrestler meanwhile bring in thick kraut-rhythms to ascend to their peaks. Debut appearances for each by the way! On Deep Distance.

Long Distance Poison
Human Program

Long Distance Poison are a group who dabble with various manipulated electronics to create proper ‘scapes: big droning things that imply ritualistic activities. Human Program is the first of their full-length records to be released ‘natively’ in the UK, on the Deep Distance label. 300 copies only, on clear, clear vinyl.

XAM
Tone Systems

12” vinyl on Deep Distance, limited to 500 copies. Matthew Benn of Hookworms releases his debut solo record, and it’s a krautrock infused electronica dreamworld. You can see all of his input in Hookworms in this record, just replace the walls of guitar with Kraftwerk-ian synthesis. For fans of Harmonia and all things Berlin School.

Cosmic Ground
Deadlock / Decay

Taken from 2014’s full length album, Cosmic Ground’s 12” boasts an A side of Deadlock - styled after some dark 70s style Germanic droning psychedelic played on a variety of vintage analogue musical equipment. The B side sees the release of the download only track Decay finally on vinyl for the first time. On Deep Distance.

Listening Center
Cycles / Other Phenomena

Major key kosmiche from the evocatively titled Listening Center. Initially released as a limited cassette, Cycles/Other Phenomena gets the full wax work to better display its retrofuturist kraut excursions. All analogue, bathed in European vibes. Out on limited edition white vinyl LP from Deep Distance.

Sula Bassana
Kosmonauts

Double vinyl LP, with 2 different coloured vinyl in each. Dave Schmidt’s (Electric Moon/Zone Six) solo venture of electronic psych rock. Some of these tracks wouldn’t be out of place in a John Carpenter film with gritty analog arpeggiators and solid bass lines which wouldn’t go amiss in Ghosts of Mars.  Highly limited to 500 copies.

Bosques
Eomaia Recuerda

10” vinyl EP with embossed covers. Limited pressing of 300. Formed in Argentina in 2009 Bosques create psyched out krautrock. For fans of the constant grooves of NEU! and slow evolving droney textures. Bosques wish this EP to be seen to not have a leading track, with each one developing without you even noticing it.

Rhododendron
Paris Rendezvous / Le Grind

Have you seen ‘C’était un rendez-vous’, by French director Claude Lelouch? Amazing footage from a camera mounted on the front bumper of a sports car speeding around Paris in the early hours. Snow Patrol appropriated it for a music video, but Rhododendron do it better on Paris Rendezvous, an improvised soundtrack to that film that makes up one side of this 10” release on Deep Distance.
