Object Agency
Abaa Cove

Object Agency returns to Kit Records (The Nag’s Head, Lung Glass) with another LP of wacky techno. Abaa Cove is a really chirpy record. Perky drum tracks on tunes like ‘1K MIDI’ and ‘Dads Of Summer’ (great title) are wedded with bright FM synths that zip across the monitors. Sometimes they coalesce into off-kilter melodies, but generally they’re content to bounce around like some leftover Joe Goddard modulars. Good fun.

HESITATION
HESITATION

Following on from 'The Trip' and 'Gone Fishing' this is the next instalment of guys get together telly. Except it's not on telly (yet) and these two old pals make improvised lo-fi using any instrument that came to hand culminating in an all-over-the-shop album of lo-fi jazz, shoegaze, electronics and whatever else came out of the melting pot.

R. Karim
Object of Unknown Provenance

R. Karim’s name is as mysterious as his music. It does not tell us anything, especially not about this pretty little tape. It’s filled with his own recordings done on the side, for an unreleased film. Object of Unknown Provenance is like a plane built for flight, but now functioning as a submarine: enigmatic, and captivating.

Devon Loch
Sleep Scale

Minimalistic organs and piano mixed in acoustic collages. Slightly dissonant and distractedly meandering. Sleep Scale is hypnotizing, somnambulant almost. The debut by Devon Loch, joined here by Ela Orleans and Best Available Technology, sounds like the demented memoirs of pure energy. And I mean that in a good way.

Cara Stacey & Camilo Ángeles
Ceder

Cara Stacey (South Africa) and Camilo Ángeles (Peru) bashed this one out in a day, and it’s quite a trip. Both artists performed multiple instruments, but Stacey largely favours piano and Ángeles various flutes. With a great sense of freedom, the material goes all over: opener ‘Jazmin’ mixes odd dissonances with unmistakable calmness at first before gathering rhythmic and harmonic momentum - all in under two minutes. Unpredictable, beautiful and slightly bonkers.

Martin Glass
The Pacific Visions of Martin Glass

Martin Glass is, apparently, a US businessman set adrift in Taiwan, with only his synthesisers to keep him company. The recordings presented on The Pacific Visions of Martin Glass play around with 80’s muzak and lounge vibes, with a strong cloud of kitsch orientalism infusing the whole enterprise. Released by Kit Records.

The Nag's Head
Live From Concrete Island

The Nag’s Head is not only a premium surf-spot off the North Carolinian shore, it is also one fanatic dark house/techno producer. Live from Concrete Island further expands on his industrial sound in a severely limited (50!) edition tape, with the sporadic release of haunting soundscapes meandering through the background.

Romeo Poirier
Plage Arrière

Scratchy and minimal pieces by multi talented frenchman Romeo Poirier His debut album through Kit records, Plage Arrière is filled with micro tonal samples, clicks, shimmering pianos and faded surroundings, reminiscent of more ambient version of Giuseppe Ielasi’s Aix, It’s made up of a warm electronic hum and a subtly hidden groove.

Devonanon
City of All Times

Stitched and layered found sounds from various locations across europe documenting a constant state of travel and passage, interspersed with harmonious musical passages consisting of drum machines and guitars. Fading between sombre, sweet and calm to playfully jaunty, Devonanon manage to capture the beauty inbetween departing and arriving.

Cosmic Neighbourhood
Collages II

Collages II is so-named because these sounds were developed to accompany some old-school paper-and-scissors craft compositions (also produced by Adam Higton, the man behind Cosmic Neighbourhood. And these sixteen tracks certainly do evoke some of the shimmer and joy of 1970’s childhood as remembered through a Radiophonic filter. Out on Kit Records.

Drömloch
Late Style

Late Style is a more or less unique-sounding album, being constructed out of recordings of a dying church organ. The failing circuitry means that these sounds (broken digital shards, twisted melodic fragments) can’t really be replicated again: sweet deal! The A-side has Devon Loch’s raw recordings, while the B-side features reworkings made with Antidröm. LP on Kit Records.

Object Agency
A Revolution in Customer Service

The nattily titled A Revolution in Customer Service is the debut release from one M. Marshall under the name Object Agency. The sounds are mostly provided by a Juno synthesiser, with extra layers of textured fizz and melodic crackle from tape loops and the like. Woozy shiny atmospherics, very pleasurable. Cassette tape on Kit Records.

Michael Tanner
Suite for Psaltery and Dulcimer

Michael Tanner presents a set of musics imbued with dreams of rural Sussex and memories of strangeness in the 70’s, all put across with psaltery, dulcimer, and Alison Cotton’s viola. Rich, woozy melodic folk-drones follow. Suite for  Psaltery and Dulcimer is released in a limited edtion of 300 copies, on Kit Records.

The Nag's Head
Gluud Und Scruud

As The Nag’s Head, producer Stephen Maskell makes a kind of strange-man’s techno: the pulse is present, just about dancefloor-suited, but the genre’s usual trappings are replaced with a melange of strange sounds and tones. Nicely done. Gluud Und Scruud is released as a shiny tape on the Kit Records label, accompanied by an A3 poster.

The Nag's Head
Luxury Slime Vortex

Following the disjointed techno vibes of 'Live From Concrete Island', 'Luxury Slime Vortex' is the second release from The Nag’s Head (aka Brighton producer Stephen Maskell) as well as being the second ever tape release on DIY, experimental micro label, Kit, fusing his signature shuddering rhythms, rich textural found sounds and beautiful melodies into a coherent work of infectious compositions.

Mary Lattimore
Luciferin Light

What could be better? A collection of home-improvised solo recordings from Mary Lattimore, deploying her delay-pedalled harp to absolutely gorgeous effect. Intimate, exploratory, near-spiritual. Luciferin Light is an attractive glitter gold cassette, released by Kit Records in an edition of just 100 copies.

Cara Stacey
Things That Grow

Cara Stacey has turned minimalist African music into both a science and a form of art. Having studied music all her life, the South African composer combines multiple native instruments with uncanny amounts of consonants in their names with a jazz formation, to create experimental song structures. Things That Grow is a gradually expanding album that will captivate you more and more.

Cosmic Neighbourhood
Collages I

Cosmic Neighborhood is the musical project of an illustrator, and the tracks on Collages I are responses to the 70’s-children’s-TV-esque collages seen on the sleeve art. The music is suitably naive, twinkling and beautiful, conjuring gentle psychedelia with flutes, electronics, and a whole lot of hazy processing. Cassette tape on Kit Records.

Various

Auclair
Semaphore

Semaphore is the latest release from Auclair (Tanya Auclair) on Kit Records. Woozy post-dubsteppian avant-pop with a hint of understated R&B.

Synaesthete
Array

An audiovisual project of sorts, Synaesthete is Sarah Tanat-Jones' attempt at combining her illustration skills with her ferocious synth pop chops. 'Array' comes with a wide collection of her artwork in the form of a picture book, as well as the eight songs that comprise the record. 'Array' is a compelling departure away from Tanat-Jones' typical ferocious drumming. The eighteen pages of art plus the CD are being released by Kit Records.
