Gross Net
Gross Net Means Gross Net

Phillip Quinn, AKA, Gross Net uses his latest album title to hammer home the meaning of his music-making moniker a la Teresa May with Gross Net Means Gross Net. It could be said the music is inspired by May and her cronies too. The political mess we’re in has brought some avant garde experimentalism and dark electronics out of him that recalls Coil, late-period Scott Walker and Popol Vuh, all delivered with black humour.

Chasms
The Mirage

With The Mirage, Chasms find themselves entrapped in the world of dub. On this, their second album for Felte, the pair process change and sorrow by slowing things down and turning the reverb way up. The use of space is powerfully evocative, giving us a direct line to the frame of mind The Mirage was created in. 

Devon Church
We Are Inextricable

Brooklyn Winnipegger Devon Church, fresh out of a dissolved marriage and creative partnership (Exitmusic) with Aleksa Palladino, bounces back with solo album We Are Inextricable on same old label Felte. Awkward! Now solely responsible for vocals, he seems to have assumed the role of a heavily wizened, Waits-like whiskey crooner, rasping away over swirls of glum dream pop.

Public Memory
Demolition

The sophomore LP from Public Memory arrives courtesy of Felte (Soviet Soviet, Autobahn). Demolition is a brooding and abrasive listen that recalls that period in the '90s when hip-hop started morphing into all sorts of strange new styles. Trip-hop, Krautrock and the paranoid plunderphonics of early DJ Shadow all exert a strong influence on these eight tunes.

Numb.er
Goodbye

What type of -wave is this? The type that a graphic designed and a synthesiser lover make. Dense atmospherics overlaid with the deadpan delivery that reaches all the way back to Joy Division. Numb.er are well practiced in dynamics and are adept at delivering a pointy gut punch when needed.

Gold Class
It’s You

Gold Class are a Melbourne, Australia based gang of post-punk independents. Straight away you’ll notice the especially deep voice of thing singer, irresistibly recalling certain Northern UK indie originals… It’s You is their debut full-length, and it makes a strong impression. LP on Felte.

Exitmusic
The Recognitions

Coming out whiffing as much of Beach House as Zola Jesus, the latest album of New York’s Exitmusic (Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church, who is not a church in Devon but a person) also carries the dramatic and uneasy scent of the duo’s recent divorce. Wailed and repitched vocals are strewn across throbbing, straining synthpop anthems such as the lead, ‘I’ll Never Know’, resulting in almost paradoxically intense dream pop.

Odonis Odonis
No Pop

Stark stuff here on Odonis Odonis’ fourth album release. The set-up for the No Pop recording sessions was sparse, with just a basic array of synths and drum machines used to put meat on the bones of musical sketches and ideas. The results are lots of fun, despite the air of exciting malevolence that hangs over the project. On Felte.

Gold Class
Drum

A record built on heartbreak, on the feelings left behind and on the sofa in the house of a friend of a friend. Drum is the ten-track record from Gold Class. The release highlights the struggle that we go through in the time of relationship breakups with hints of Morrissey-esque vocals throughout. Available on limited edition white vinyl LP and CD.

Au.Ra
Cultivations

Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles return to the Felte label for their sophomore full length as Au.Ra. For fans of Slowdive, Pale Saints, Primal Scream, Cultivations has grown from Au.Ra’s previously successful formula of not rushing things and letting things take shape. This heady, airy and freeing shoegaze sound is the result, unforced but nurtured.

Sextile
Albeit Living

LA gang Sextile give us their second album, Albeit Living. These ten tracks take the gnarly debut album’s sound and makes pretty much everything a bit better, from the production to the songwriting and composition. But don’t worry, these synth-driven post-punks still have plenty of bite and bile to them. Albeit Living is out on Felte.

Public Memory
Veil Of Counsel

Public Memory make a shuffling kind of music out of slithering bass tones, slow-swaggering drum machines and Thom Yorkie vocals, all put through a dubbed-up and tripped-out production style. Veil Of Memory is a three track EP that sonically stands in between last year’s debut album and their forthcoming 2017 follow-up. 12” on Felte.

PVT
New Spirit

Former Warp Records artists PVT, aka Pivot, return with another album of electronic songcraft. New Spirit’s songs move like rock / pop songs, but are built from shapeshifting synths, pitch-shifted vocals and stern drum machines. The resulting glossy art-pop then gets on with critiquing the ills of modern Australian society. LP / CD release on Felte.

Soviet Soviet
Endless

Soviet Soviet, who are Italy (as opposed to any post-Soviet country), release their second full-length album Endless. They plough a slickly energetic furrow, with several songs showing off that windswept epic-indie-swoop sound that people used to call ‘anthemic’. Released by the Felte label.

Chasms
On The Legs of Love Purified

San Francisco duo Jess Labrador and Shannon Madden purge the stresses of being artists in almost hostile cities with My Bloody Valentine esque walls of sustained guitar chords that aren’t quite drones, with straight hitting drum programming all topped with subtle vocal harmonies that Julianna Barwick might write. Harsh and angry but quite stunning.

Soviet Soviet
Nice

Soviet Soviet, who are, curiously enough, an Italian band, created and self-released the tracks on Nice as a variety of singles from 2008 onwards: they they were digitally compiled in 2011, and now they are at last pressed to wax together. This is the band’s earliest material, showing off their tight and adventurous post-punk sound. Limited edition of 500 LPs on Felte.

Odonis Odonis
Post Plague

Odonis Odonis smashed the radar with 2011s Hollandaze which was a bizarre blend of lo-fi shoegaze with punk aggression. Post Plague shows similar genrte bending and smashing, with Nine Inch Nails and Laibach industrial groove and dark brute force, with the impassioned vocal screams of These New Puritans. It’s a truly mesmerising mix, do you bob or bang your head, that’s the question.

Public Memory
Wuthering Drum

Very hard to pin down vocal electronica from Public Memory. On Wuthering Drum abrasive electronic textures, hip-hop drums and neoclassical piano are all held together by Robert Toher’s melancholic vocals and lyrics of alienation. A thoughtful and minimal record with a trip-hop sensibility. CD and vinyl LP on Felte.

Ashley Shadow
Ashley Shadow

Having previously worked with Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Lightning Dust and The Organ, Ashley Shadow is now ready to make her debut as a solo artist. This self-title album contains 9 songs that are lyrically grounded in Shadow’s experiences with marginalised populations in her hometown Vancouver. Out on Felte.

Lushes
Service Industry

Service Industry is the new album from Brooklyn duo, Lushes. It is a raw rock record which ditches the moments of serenity from their first album, What Am I Doing, in favour of focusing on the primal and visceral aspects of guitar and drums. The album was recorded and mixed by long-time Sonic Youth associate Aaron Mullan.

Au.Ra
Jane’s Lament

New full length album Jane’s Lament from Sydney’s Au.Ra who are Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles. Inspired by jamming sessions, the sounds build up through drone, looping melodies and drums, and reverbed instrumentation. Dreamy, psychedelic pop music. Chilled out meditative sounds. CD and vinyl on Felte.
