Rose
Exile

On Exile the mysterious Rose blends dark ambient soundscapes with minimal drone and even some melancholic techno. This cassette from Constellation Tatsu comes with some lovely packaging and is a strong dose of raw and lonely electronica made without any fuss or fanfare and perfect for a winter n...view item »

Stuart Chalmers
In the Heart of Solitude

I saw Stuart Chalmers play once at Leeds’ infamous anti-music music festival Crater Lake, and it was quite priceless: man leans over rug, pushing tapes into slots with the enthusiasm of an animated cartoon character, while wearing a really wonderful wig. The sounds were beautiful, and so’s this here tape for Constellation Tatsu, whic...view item »

Rhucle
Fantastic Garden

I’ve been staring at the album art for this one for about twenty minutes. I might be asleep. But I’m typing. So it’s fine. Rhucle comes with Constellation Tatsu’s latest quartet of tapes, and skews more towards the label’s quota of new age, immersing the listener in a watery hammock of abstracted synth melody that s...view item »

Hakobune
In Arboreal Whispering

I’ve always thought of Hakobune’s music as something like a video game safe zone, the save point at which you can rest, take stock and generally whittle away the time. His long tonal snoozes have existed many times over at this point -- many of them on Constellation Tatsu itself -- and here they continue to suggest the same kind of d...view item »

Pulse Emitter
Equinox

My respite from the darkness of my self inflicted review choices this week comes in the form of a sweet tape from Pulse Emitter, better known to his chums as Daryl Groetsch. The audio on these spools arriving just before his ‘Crater Lake’ LP on Immune lands on our s...view item »

Hakobune
Looping Around The Forest I Thought I Remembered

Aaaaahhh. Soothing. We all need a bit of soothing. Writing reviews about such gentle music is hard enough when sat alone in near silence, in this case I have the added distraction of my mother fussing about in the background. I’m reviewing from home you see and she has just popped in to do a spot of hoovering (Note: I am perfectly capable ...view item »

Billy Gomberg
Into the Fade

Billy Gomberg makes drone like a coat makes you warm; his slow, fixated compositions are all surface, ideal for washing your dishes to or falling into a deep sleep with. Into the Fade is a work made with "synthesizers and computers", a work he considers to be neutral to its environment. It's beautiful....view item »

Samantha Glass
Rising Movements

Samantha Glass is the alias of Beau Deveraux, making synthy poppy, catchy tunes under the moniker. While the label describes the album as dark, it sounds like they might have been listening to the wrong one as this album is anything but, with warm, sunny movements meeting foot-tapping beats.

Quiet Evenings / Former Selves
Split

Ooh, this is a very cool-looking tape. There’s little additional bits inside that makes it look like reel-to-reel spools! It’s a proper classy touch and I already want to know where you can get blanks. These ones aren’t blank, though, they’re cosmic. ...view item »
