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.    &n...view item »

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 pro...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 slig...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 g...view item »

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 edit...view item »

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 i...view item »

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...view item »

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.

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 ...view item »

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 outt...view item »

Panabrite

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....view item »

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....view item »

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 mis...view item »

Farbfelde
Eins

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 li...view item »

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.

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.

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...view item »

This LP I'm reviewing now is the latest from Great Pop Supplement offshoot Deep Distance, but I'm challenging myself to write some reviews without looking at the press releases this week so you'll have to look there for yourself if you want the facts.

Eat Lights Become Lights / Twelve

Eat Lights Become Lights eschew their usual motorik groove for something a lot more slowly evolving and euphoric, like an updating on the Ibiza chill out sound, orchestral samples bounce and dance across the grooves.

Various
Grasshopper Mind

I'm not sure if the musicians on this record are genuine Germans or Krautneys. It begins with the wonderfully upbeat and late 70's Kraftwerkesque inspired "Resonanz" and flows seemlessly into the slower but equally melodic "Me you and Popol Vuh". Side B is a consistant chillout, think Harmonia, Cluster and a pinch of slower Neu!/La Duesseldorf. ...view item »
