Monoganon
VISITATIONS 0101

Lost Map (Lazy Day, Alabaster DePlume) kick off their new VISITATIONS series with an EP from old favourite Monoganon. The Scotland-born, Sweden-based artist John B. McKenna has turned in a record of delightfully unusual electronica here. Opener ‘Visitations 1’ is a strange bit of anti-acid that obliquely recalls Proc Fiskal, but following track ‘One By One’ is beautiful electro-pop that could pass for something off of Bon Iver’s second LP. On the flip, ‘Visitations 3’ and ‘Visitations 5’ are dubby Balearic takes.

Bas Jan
Yes I jan

Bas Jan are a post-punk trio from London fronted by Serafina Steer, who you may know from her 2013 Jarvis Cocker-produced album, The Moths Are Real. The group underwent lineup changes during the making of their debut, Yes I Jan, meaning Steer is the only constant.The group are named after Dutch conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader who disappeared in 1975. LP on Lost Map.

Alabaster dePlume
The Corner Of A Sphere

The fourth LP from Alabaster dePlume sees the East London jazz-savant balancing positivity and hardship. Born from his monthly PEACH sessions at Dalston’s getting-a-reputation-for-itself Total Refreshment Centre, The Corner Of A Sphere seeks to make good of the troubles afflicting many a Millenial youth. dePlume’s mix of psych-folk, neo-soul and spoken-word is nothing if not unique, with songs ‘Be Nice To People’ fronting like Kate Tempest made a record with The Roots.

Firestations
The Year Dot

Firestations are the latest outfit to emerge from the ever interesting Lost Map stable and this debut features a brand of nice-listen indie pop with perky melodies, sunshiny vibes and unthreatening subject manner. So pleasant and harmony drenched that it's hard to imagine it being recorded in Walthamstow.

Pictish Trail
Future Echoes

Pictish Trail has been beavering away on this album in the splendid isolation of the Hebrides island of Eigg, where only his own bountiful creativity can intrude. Future Echoes is a lovely little set of lively folky songs with substantial lashings of electro-disco touches: there is much to enjoy here. Out on Lost Map, with both CD and vinyl editions coming with a full supply of artwork.

Ed Dowie
The Uncle Sold

Adopting its intriguing title from a 1995 Kazuo Ishiguro novel, is The Uncle Sold from the London-based Ed Dowie. May For A Dead Queen makes for a cold, eerie, but no-less-spectacular preview single - but don't pigeonhole the record with this; it prides itself on throwing its audience surprises and unexpected narratives along the way.

Manuela
Manuela

Vocalist Manuela Gernedel teams up with ex-Franz Ferdinand guitarist Nick McCarthy for a self titled full length of gentle, left-of-centre pop songs. Enlisting the help of some guest appearances from members of The Mystery Jets, Django Django, and Veronica Falls. Catchy and sublime. On vinyl from Lost Map.

Lazy Day
Disappear / All The Time

In 2014 Tilly Scantlebury started recording songs in her bedroom. Since then, she has recruited a rhythm section and guitarist to form Lazy Day and help realise her dream pop/alt rock vision. The band had a RSD ‘15 split 7” with Tuff Love which completely sold out. Now the London-based quartet are going out on their own with a double A sided single - Disappear / All The Time.

Ichi
Maru

ICHI is a Bristol-based, Japanese-born musician who makes a ridiculously dense and rich experimental pop music, that also taps into his new home’s post-punk and dub cultures. Maru's surreal mash of drones, acapella sounds, homemade instruments and samples is incredibly hard to categorise, so you should probably just listen to it.

Rozi Plain
Friend Of A Friend

After a busy time making and touring recent record Friend, Rozi Plain presents a nice round-up release that picks up some choice bonus recordings surrounding the album. Live radio sessions sit next to remixes by artists like Boxed In and Aidan O’Rourke, as well as 2 unheard original Plain tracks. Friend Of A Friend is limited to 300 CD copies.

Victoria Hume
Closing EP

The Lost Map label have really outdone themselves with this collection of experimental songwriting from Victoria Hume. On the surface the songs on Closing EP are compositions for piano, voice and strings, but within these limits they contain diverse, rich and highly emotional sounds that mark Hume as an exciting new artist.

Tuff Love
Resort

Young Glaswegians Tuff Love have been sporadically sprinkling EPs around for the last few years: now the time has come to compile Junk, Dross and Dregs (their titles, not mine) into one convenient package. The name of the game is gorgeous, hazy guitar pop with more than a touch of shoegaze shimmer. Released by Lost Map.
  • Vinyl LP (LAT4)
  • CD (LAT4CD)

Tuff Love
Dregs EP

Tuff Love have always had a lo-fi ethos but their sound is more polished. Dreggs EP follows on from their two highly regarded EPs Junk and Dross and their Record Store Day 7” single Groucho. Dreggs is a pristine piece of DIY indie pop and could be their best yet. 10” Yellow vinyl on Lost Map.

Seamus Fogarty
Ducks and Drakes EP

With a name as quintessentially Irish as Seamus Fogarty, you can be sure that you’re getting treated to a music steeped in folk tradition. Ducks and Drakes follows his debut album, progressing the alt-folk lineage further into some interesting directions. Fusing field recordings with electronics and his well-informed songwriting style, this EP is a keen step forward. Out on vinyl 12” from Lost Map.

Tuff Love
Dross EP

Dross is the second release from Glasgow based Tuff Love. Creators of infectious, fuzzed-up lo-fi pop the city is best known for, Dross follows the duo's debut release Junk EP and it's equally triumphant at evoking the adrenaline of the band's live shows. Shimmering and blistering in equal turns, Dross is a must-listen for all fans of Scotland's vibrant musical backstory.

Rozi Plain
Friend

Friend is the third album by alt-folk practitioner Rozi Plain. The Winchester-born singer/songwriter has roped in of Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor and a few members of Francois & The Atlas Mountains to help on this record. You may have heard the single Actually doing the rounds on 6 Music recently. Definitely worth checking out!

Randolph's Leap
Most Clunky

12” vinyl on Lost Map. 9 songs from Glasgow’s folky pop outfit Randolph Leap’s debut album, Clumsy Knot played with a full 8-piece band at Lost Map and Kid Canaveral's annual Christmas Baubles show. Highly limited edition of 250 with 5 different colour combinations, they are hand stamped and include handwritten tracklists.

Tuff Love / Lazy Day
Groucho / Portrait

A summer-ready split release on Lost Map. Tuff Love deliver Groucho, a slice of sunshine pop, whilst the flip side sees their friends Lazy Day offer up their track Portrait, an epic, intimate accompaniment to the hazy fuzz-pop of the A side. Out on split 7" inc. download from Lost Map. Limited to 300 copies.

Insect Heroes
Apocalypso

Sweet vocals, off kilter percussion and randomly layered electronic sounds characterise Insect Heroes' 'Apocalypso', which is actually way more cheerful and abundantly more twee than the metal name and artwork suggests. This record is recommended for fans of loopy indie pop bands such as the Unicorns and Islands, who make you feel through the most naive and juvenile of approaches.

Rozi Plain / Rachael Dadd
Split

This 7" of beautifully muted folk and electronica pangs with nostalgic longing, with a delighted melancholy shared between artists Rozi Plain and Rachael Dadd. The split sees a track from Plain's record 'Friend' and Dadd's forthcoming, perfectly titled 'We Resonate', both ricocheting with folk music that is never traditional nor sparse.

Monoganon / Nonagonom
LOST CAT 00°2 16'05​.​2014"

From Glasgow, Scotland via Malmo, Sweden comes another fine release from Monoganon. A dreamy, wistful band with a balance of witty songwriting ability and just the right amount of shoegazy guitar influences. A sense of humour and big heart mark them out as something special. Out on tape from Lost Map.

Woodpigeon Vs. Eagleowl
Split

Formed in Edinburgh in 2005, eagleowl - all lower-case if you please - were initially a duo comprising Bartholomew Owl (guitar, vocals) and Malcolm Benzie (violin, guitar, vocals). With the addition of Clarissa Cheong (double bass, vocals), several years of activity as a trio followed. The band has since grown into a multi-instrumental six-piece also featuring Rob St. John (organ, harmonium, vocals), Hannah Shepherd (cello) and Owen Williams (drums).When not performing together, all six members are highly active in other bands and collaborations, be it with Scottish alt-folk troubadour Withered Hand, Icelandic singer-songwriter Benni Hemm Hemm, their band mate Rob St. John (who also pursues a solo career), or Canadian indie-pop maestro Woodpigeon. It's the latter - with whom eagleowl's Transatlantic tête-à-tête is framed by this silent year track 'eagleowl vs woodpigeon' (a response to the Calgary singer-songwriter's track 'Woodpigeon vs Eagleowl', from his 2010 album Die Stadt Muzikanten) - that Edinburgh's finest partner-up with to fill a side each of a C40 for LOST CAT 003, the latest release in Lost Map's highly-collectible rarities tape series, on sale only at certain select locations -it's up to you to go find 'em.

Eagleowl
This Silent Year

Scottish lo-fi folksters back with an album that's been two years in the making- a fact reflected in the depth and expansive reach of the band's sound that has grown to incorporate elegantly arranged strings and harmonium in addition to the more ubiquitous guitar, organ and drums. All these elements gently carry the melancholy themes of loss that reoccur along with more lighter moments to keep things from gettin too maudlin.

Randolph's Leap
Clumsy Knot

Glasgow-based Randolph's Leap is basically home recording geek Adam Ross, who, like Snow White, is occasionally assisted by seven musical helpers. By day, he works in a cafe on a wind farm and by night he tinkers away making up songs about coffee shops and running away to live in the woods. Folkie indie goodness, on wholesome vinyl or nasty modern age compact disc.

Monoganon
F A M I L Y

Scottish art crew Monoganon do some mathy addition and subtraction and cos and sin nonsense, crafting a record that's as exuberant and free-wheeling as it is technically devotional: the time signatures that drive F A M I L Y stutter and change, but these tracks move with the slow, evocative beauty of Slint and Grizzly Bear. This record is a crystalline knot.
