Silences EP

You may have heard James Green and Nick Dawson on their monthly radio show on the Southend-based internet radio station Shipfullofbombs.co.uk. That is just one of many things on which the pair have collaborated. Silences is their latest project and this self-titled EP is their first in a number of releases. They recorded the improvised EP in their native Southend-on-Sea using guitars, piano, various vintage synths and twiddly boxes. Listen out for a kazoo, too.

Graham Dunning
Keg / Bulkhead

Graham Dunning puts the turntables to one side for a highly focused release on the Courier label. All sounds on Keg / Bulkhead’s two lengthy tracks are derived from a snare drum, which is activated using a motor and various objects for incessant textural fun. 'Keg' has a jackhammer motor rhythm at its core, while 'Bulkhead' is more of a sheer drone. Cassette release.

Alchemy 4

Alchemy 4 by Bowditch is a series of pieces created for an exhibition in Colchester, Essex. Comprising entirely of sounds found in one particular building, Alchemy 4 is a work that conveys an alienating sense of place. Listen for the way that the sound of fire alarm bells, typically used in an entirely practical purpose, has been turned on its head in an oddly beautiful way. 

Diacritical Mark
Lozenges (Regular Strength)

Improvised and recorded partly on an iPad, Diacritical Mark's new experimental piece Lozenges, suggests a reluctant acceptance in engaging with modern culture. It's an interesting dichotomy, then, that this is being released on tape. Although the press release highlights how Lozanges concentrates on the 'futility of trying to cope with regular life experiences', this tape is a wholly engaging and enjoyable listen.
