Cleared
The Key

Percussionist Steven Hess (also of Locrian, RYLR and Haptic) and Chicago-based guitarist Michael Vallera, who together make up Cleared, recorded their latest project ‘The Key’ over the Winter of 2019. The gently undulating ambient-tone of the album, hovering somewhere between calm and unnerving, seems prescient given the events that unfolded the following year.

Fennesz
Plus Forty Seven Degrees 56' 37 Minus Sixteen Degrees 51'08

Originally released in 1999, this bewilderingly-entitled opus was Christian Fennesz's second solo album and his first for Touch. 'Plus Forty Seven Degrees 56' 37 Minus Sixteen Degrees 51'08' continued to showcase his ability to conjure up disjointed textures and sometimes harsh layers of sound. It was recorded in his back garden using only a powerbook and a mixing desk, and it sounds a bit like bvdub. These are 'warehouse' find copies of this long-sold-out album. 

Joséphine Michel & Mika Vainio
The Heat Equation

Joséphine Michel and Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic) teamed up on 2015’s 'Halfway To White', a release that combined Vainio’s music with a hardback book of Michel’s photographs. 'The Heat Equation' follows a similar formula, linking 69 photos of Michel’s with a CD of the late Vainio’s final UK show, a 2016 concert given in Ramsgate at the Contra Pop festival. The brutal, bracing noise Vainio made that night dovetails neatly with Michel’s multi-faceted images. Also included here is an introductory essay from Jeremy Millar and a postcard insert of Michel’s portrait of Vainio.

Strafe F.R.
Shadow Position

Strafe F.R. of Dusseldorf have been at it since the '80s and have released several records on the legendary Touch imprint. The latest is Shadow Position which is another take on their unique and experimental form of sound art. The album has four tracks which the band describe as four different windows to look out of. 

Fennesz
Agora

Can you believe it’s been nearly five years since the sumptuously singed guitar and synths of Christian Fennesz graced a solo album? It’s amazing but true. And his return to the format is a little unusual, in that it was put together away from the studio in his bedroom using only minimal equipment. Touch continues to touch.

Eleh
Living Space

The shadowy figure of Eleh, closely protective of their identity, returns to Touch with the first new Eleh material released by the imprint since Location Momentum, way back in 2010. Living Space has been seven years in the making and sees Eleh hone their minimally rendered, high impact drone music even further.

Claire M Singer
Trian

With a captivating formula of powerful strings and re-emerging cinematic soundscapes, 'Train' is the latest enthralling brainchild of Claire M Singer. With 4 sides filled with experimental live electronics, installations, acoustic sounds and much more, this is an escapist selection of pieces designed to whisk away the listener to another dimension.

Various
There Where the Avalanche Stops

Held over the course of one week every five years, the Festivali Folkloric Kombelar is held in a mountain castle in Gjirokastra in southern Albania, and plays host to some of the most interesting and talented folk musicians. There Where The Avalanche Stops collects 15 tracks from the 1988 edition of the festival. 

Howlround
The Debatable Lands

Touch Records (Oren Ambarchi, Philip Jeck) drop an LP of phasing experiments from Howlround. Howlround mastermind Robin The Fog created all of the sounds on this record with nothing other than some loops of tape and a microphone. Stretching and bending his tape ala Steve Reich, the resulting record is a set of jittery concrete pulses.

UnicaZürn
Sensudestricto

UnicaZürn, aka Stephen Thrower (of Coil and Cyclobe) and David Knight (a key Lydia Lunch collaborator), present another suite of deep textures on Touch. Sensudestricto might very well appeal to lovers of Jim O’Rourke’s recent Steamroom work, or indeed any fan of rich, electronic-led and saxophone featuring ambience.

Jana Winderen
Spring Bloom in the Marginal Ice Zone

Norwegian artist Jana Winderen makes field recording like no one else. It was her mission to search for sounds that were hard to reach, or hard to hear. Spring Bloom In The Marginal Ice Zone is not a poetic title - it is what it is - the sounds she has recorded reflect the goings on in the Barents Sea as plankton matures, sea ice cracks, orcas and humpbacks find new homes for the season and cod hunt and spawn. CD on Touch.

Ipek Gorgun
Ecce Homo

Turkish sound artist Ipek Gorgun signs with Touch for her second LP. Ecce Homo is a record of lush, large, sometimes abrasive electro-acoustic music. It swings from moments of grandiose granular synthesis to experiments with distortion to majestic drones - and that’s all within the space of opener ‘Neroli’. Despite the frequent changes of pace Ecce Homo never feels rushed. Equivalent creators include Yves Tumor and The Haxan Cloak.

Mark Van Hoen
Invisible Threads

After an enlightening and enriching tour with a number of Touch luminaries, Mark Van Hoen channeled his inspiration into the pieces that would become Invisible Threads, which have been layered up out of a mass of modular synthesis, sound samples from records, domestic life and YouTube, various instruments, and computer processing. The resulting seven tracks create an extremely immersive soundworld all of its own, despite its many crucial roots. CD on Touch.

Strafe F.R.
The Bird Was Stolen

Having built on the legacy of artists like Einstürzende Neubauten in the 80s and 90s, German duo Strafe F.R. (Für Rebellion) have returned to the fray in recent years after a couple of decades in hibernation. New LP The Bird Was Stolen contains more of the challenging mix of industrial music, found sound and studio experimentation that made the band’s name all those years ago. Out via Touch.

UnicaZürn
Transpandorem

UnicaZürn is the imaginative sound collaboration between Stephen Thrower and David Knight, both of whom have participated in some notable experimental musics (with Coil, Lydia Lunch and more). Transpandorem, their new LP for Touch, drifts around some spacey territory with synths, mellotron, guitar, clarinet, leaving behind a music that is hard to pin down.

CM Von Hausswolff
Still Life - Requiem

For this record, Swedish experimentalist CM Von Hausswolff used one sound source and one sound source only: processed emission spectroscopy from “specific physical solid state material”. Still Life - Requiem spins and whirls these sounds out into a melancholy slab of abstraction, tapping into the energy of the world around. On Touch.
