Electric Capablanca
Puzzles & Studies

A rather cryptic release from an unknown artist / collection of artists going under the name Electric Capablanca. The name is inspired by a former champion chess player, 'Puzzles & Studies' evokes the kind of ambient, throbbing soundscapes conjured up by Tangerine Dream, Manuel Göttsching and early Kraftwerk.

Roméo Poirier & Lars Haga Raavand
Kystwerk

The press release makes sure to mention that Roméo Poirier is a lifeguard as well as a musician and photographer. It might go some way to explaining why his debut, SURFACES EP, was the soundtrack to four swimming pools and why Kystwerk features underwater recordings as well as field recordings from Norway's coastline. Made with Lars Haga Raavand, Kystwerk is a gentle and emotional play on natural sounds and the glory, threat and joy of the natural world.

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.

Various

Poirier Marshall Partners
ATELIER / FERME

Where Object Agency and Swim Platførm meet, the Poirier Marshall Brothers are formed. On their debut two collaborative release, the two have produced a fine set of luxury experimental electronics, all the textures and rhythms flaunting cool vibes. ATELIER / FERME is released in a limited edition of 100 tapes on the Kit Records label.

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.

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. Think Beach House, Broadcast and Little Dragon's more melancholic moments. The CD is limited to 200 copies and is accompanied by some dreamy artwork from the art department at Kit Records.
