Courier Sound Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Eumig is a project of Nick Dawson, who uses a Moog Sub Phatty, a Microbrute, and other synths to conjure up dense scapes of noise-inflected drone. Distant Spring fills a mini CD with an improvised example of Eumig music, housed in attractive packaging, with a individual drawing for every copy. Very limited edition.
If you love playful synths and masses of reverb, this is the record for you. Essex-based guitarist, producer and percussionist Viridian—a.k.a. James Green—gets improvisational on 'Juno" (released here as a limited-edition mini-CD) mining the idea of a dystopian future to devastating effect.
Stuart Bowditch’s Hybernation project is fuelled from his need to capture the places and spaces he has inhabited and visited. Whilst working on his 2010 album E2 & E8 Bowditch recorded objects that were found around where he was staying at the time and created these soft ambient pieces. They were all but forgotten about until rediscovered by chance. Limited CD on Courier.
Adorable mini CD from Alastair Johnson aka Alien. He uses a heavily processed jazz bass to create cosmic drones, while making the most of those thick bass strings to add various thudding textures. It's been a long time since Johnson cruised into the NME Dance Chart. Limited to 30 copies and comes with a linocut print of an alien.
Super limited Mini CD, including printed photographs taken by the artist of the urban landscape surrounding Anguk Station in Seoul, South Korea. Transportive ambient music constructed from a field recording made near the station, manipulated and stacked with guitar pedals, old crusty synthesisers, and loops. In a similar vein to 2010's Amber Studies which beautifully captured the mood of Krakow.
Katie English (Isnaj Dui, Littlebow, the Sly and Unseen) has long been one of our favourite musicians and here presents an EP of recordings housed in a bespoke sleeve including a handmade collograph and sticker. Isnaj Dui utilises her unique flute and cello playing and places it into an electro-acoustic and neo-classical context.
