Richard Youngs

Troubadour, jester, joker, prankster. These are all words that have probably been used to describe the gleefully playful Richard Youngs. A rare voice in experimental music that is simultaneously very good and also entirely up for taking the piss. Arrow was recorded between Glasgow and Hebden Bridge, and has Youngs playing a kind of free psychedelic jazz.

Endless Melancholy
Music For Quiet Mornings

Endless Melancholy have recorded this lovely suite as a deliberately functional sound-background: this is indeed Music For Quiet Mornings, subtly scored for piano and hovering tones. The pieces feel very thoughtful, peaceful without being overly simplistic. Edition of 150 CDs on the Preserved Sound label.

Poppy Nogood
Mood Paintings

Poppy Nogood, who is based in New York and named for a Terry Riley piece, presents Mood Paintings, an accurately-titled set of four tracks. A whole host of instruments were used in the creation of this album, but few can be easily distinguished from the abstract expressionist shimmer of the whole. Unhurried musical atmospheres, released by Preserved Sound in an edition of 150 CDs.

Visionary Hours
Footfalls Echo

Looping acoustic instruments and ethereal pads to create infinitely deep acoustic canyons, Visionary Hours takes a slow and well-considered approach to music. Sounding like a more introspective Hammock, Footfalls Echo is a trip through a forest, where the sound of your feet come bouncing back with a remote determination off unseen walls.

Ales Tsurko

The self taught composer from Minsk Ales Tsurko sets his sight very plainly on progressing contemporary classical music. Melding techniques learnt both academically and not Transliaciya features elements of shoegaze, drone, ambient electronica and post rock masterfully manipulated and woven with modern classical, into something fresh.

Covarino / Incorvaia

Covarino / Incorvaia are a guitar and drums duo who had a decade-and-a-half hiatus before getting to work on this album. Perugia, named for their Italian hometown, was composed and recorded live in the studio, and is presented to the listener without any editing or overdubs, making this a pure document of some amazing ambient rock music being made in the moment. Out on Preserved Sound.

Poppy Nogood
Music for Mourning

American violinist and composer Poppy Nogood releases his first full length album on handmade label Preserved Sound. Echoing masters of the emotionally charged neo-classical, and minimalism such as Max Richer and Steve Reich, Nogood works around self imposed restriction and improvisation to create delicate and emotionally raw pieces.

Richard Youngs
Red Alphabet in the Snow

This time around, experimental everyman Richard Youngs goes for one of his more traditional approaches -- 'Red Alphabet In The Snow' concentrates on acoustic arrangements based around guitars and banjo, while supplementing it with a lot of instruments that help build instrumental folk soundscapes. It's split into two long-form songs that clock at seventeen minutes a piece.
