bvdub
Wrath & Apathy

bvdub, AKA San Francisco-based producer Brock Van Wey, adds to his already considerable catalogue with Wrath and Apathy. The album is based on Kafka On The Shore, the 2002 novel by Haruki Murakami. Brock Van Wey expresses himself in a typically rambling yet stirring way over 4 side-long pieces. On n5MD.

Gimmik
Entre Les Chambres

Gimmik is Martin Haidinger. He is known for his synth work and glitchy beats, being part of the duo Abfahrt Hinwil and releasing on labels such as Toytronic, Worm Interface, Hertz-Schrittmacher. His last Gimmik release was way back in the mid ‘00s. He returned in 2019 with Entre Les Chambres an album featuring two long-form pieces of beatless synths, being released as a cassette on his own label, Hidden Reality. It is now released on vinyl through n5MD.

worriedaboutsatan
Time Lapse

worriedaboutsatan, no spaces, all lower case, is Bradford bloke Gavin Miller. He mixes post rock, ambient and techno music to create foggy yet propulsive soundscapes using guitar, 303s and 808s. Time Lapse is his 7th long-player but first for US electronic label n5MD, known for putting out affecting electronic records. RIYL GAS, Explosions in the Sky or early Biosphere.

Near The Parenthesis
Intervals

San Francisco-based musician Tim Arndt releases his eighth Near The Parenthesis studio album, Intervals. Constructed around the piano and less based around the complicated, kinetic rhythms that have underpinned previous NTP efforts, this eight-track effort is a rumination on the passing of time, and personal milestones in life’s journey.

Zahn / Hatami / McClure
Ypsilon

Your favourite ambient love triangle is back: Darren McClure, Porya Hatami and Uwe “Arovane” Zahn have worked together, singly and in duos of every possible combination many times by now. And here they are, up to their soothing old tricks again. Here they broaden the textured dronescope a bit to incorporate unobtrusive beats and melodic sequences.

port-royal
Flares

Back in 2005 post-rock was everywhere and over in Italy one of the finest proponents were port-royal. The album blended ambient and electronics to the post-rock and referenced the likes of Explosions in the Sky and Brian Eno. Now 15 years later the band have re-issued the album on transparent blue vinyl and with fewer records of its ilk bing made these days it could be an album worth revisiting.

Daniel McCagh
Altered States

Australian composer Daniel McCagh has already worked commercially with the likes of Volkswagen but this is the first of more experimental work from the musician. He manipulates acoustic instruments to make ambient music with an industrial, machine-based edge to it. A fascinating opening statement from an ambient practitioner to keep an eye on. Just 250 copies of the clear/smoke vinyl edition. 

Suumhow
Secuund

A throwback for fans of Nineties ambient, glitch and general Warp Records output, Secuund is the sophomore effort from Belgian experimentalists Suumhow. Warmer and smoother than the often startling audio assaults of last year’s debut Crash_Reports, it sees the duo branch out into more diverse territory. 

Stray Theories
All That Was Lost

If you like ambient music then you'll probably like this third record from Stray Theories called All That Was Lost. When Templeton-Wolfe isn't busy writing and composing material for other musical ventures, he gets time to release gold like this which will appeal to fabs of Hammock and Eluvium. Available on vinyl LP and CD and released, proudly must I add, on n5MD. 

Hollie Kenniff
The Gathering Dawn

Hollie Kenniff was once one half of the duo Mint Julep with her husband Keith Kenniff, who was also known for his involvement with Helios and Goldmund. The Gathering Dawn is her debut solo album and finds the Canadian-American musician at the centre of sprawling ambient work made from icy synths, softened guitars, and Kenniff’s mournful vocals.

PCM
Attraverso

PCM are a new ambient trio consisting of Francesco Perra, Matteo Cantaluppi and Matteo Miliea. All have previous form in ambient music and sound design but here collaborate on an album on which they try to blend drone music, haunting shards of guitar and kosmische synth. Interesting to see an ambient group, well versed as we are at seeing ambient music made by one solitary composer. Should be an interesting mix.  

OKADA
Life Is But An Empty Dream

Seventh full-length album from avant-garde artist Gregory Pappas, recording under his moniker OKADA. Consisting of four lengthy pieces of largely ambient but occasionally violent and cathartic electronica, Life Is But An Empty Dream is also the first album from Pappas to ever be pressed on to vinyl.

Proem
Until Here For Years

Back to the old style for Proem, checking in on the more experimental ends of electronica to see what can be done. Until Here For Years uses abstract details and pieces of data related to synths and such to seed expansive pieces that should viscerally delight as much as thoughtfully intrigue. Released by n5MD.

Ex Confusion
I Remember When

Ex Confusion is Atsuhito Omori’s project devoted to hazy melancholy ambience, and sixth album I Remember When maintains the sound, style and quality of the project’s output to date. It’s a very particular sonic formular, but boy does it deliver. Includes a track in collaboration with Benoit Pioulard. On n5MD.

Fall Therapy
You Look Different

According to his biography on the n5MD website, Eymeric Amselem produces ‘nostalgia electronica’. What that means is that his work as Fall Therapy combines various club styles - by turns house, techno and UK Garage - with the sort of stargazing instrumental licks that one finds cropping up on records by the likes of Maribou State and Nathan Fake. You Look Different is Fall Therapy’s debut LP.

Boy Is Fiction + Ghosts Of Tyto Alba
A Single Beam Of Light

It has been 8 years since Boy is Fiction's previous album was released. He chose to create A Single Beam of Light with Ghosts of Tyto Alba who lives bloomin' miles away from him so the project took 5 years to finish. It's a stellar work of energetic, thoughtful electro - well worth the wait. 

Axel Rigaud
Transformation

Alex Rigaud mixes electronic music and jazz on his debut album, Transformation. The multi-instrumentalist, who hails from Paris, France, uses analogue synths and reed instruments such as sax and flute, which he often manipulates to create his original sound. Red and white coloured vinyl or CD on n5MD.

Tangent
Approaching Complexity

The Netherlands duo of Ralph van Reijendam and Robbert Kok bring us their fourth album together as Tangent. Their sky-gazing ambience and gently unfurling beats have graced releases on Tympanik Audio and now n5MD (following 2016's "Collapsing Horizons" LP, a beautifully effective blend of dubby ambient and glitchy IDM styles) give us "Approaching Complexity". We continue to follow and enjoy their artistic development and their relationships with the world around us, now with recurring piano themes. Sounds like a winner. Available as a limited edition 180-gram orange vinyl LP or CD, on n5MD.

Ocoeur
Inner

Ocoeur is the neo-classical/ambient project from French composer Franck Zaragoza. The name is a play on the French meaning ‘to the heart’. On Inner, his fifth long-player, Zaragoza brings synths to the fore highlighting the ambient passages. However, the usual piano, strings and production are very much in evidence throughout the album. Zaragoza has previously shared the stage with the likes of Fennesz and Uziq, so worth checking out if you’re fans of either. LP and CD on n5MD.

Suumhow
Crash_Reports

Californian imprint n5MD (bvdub, OKADA) fronts the debut LP from Brussels electronic duo Suumhow. Crash_Reports shows a strong post-rock influence in the vein of other label releases by artists like (ghost) and Winterlight, though the glitchy treatments here are more Autechre than Explosions In The Sky. A nice one if you like a bit of IDM.

To Destroy A City
Go Mirage

Oh. My. God. For their third album Chicago trio To Destroy A City have unveiled a remarkable new trick. Vocals. Therefore their guitar driven opuses now have an extra human element. They hope you forgive them for this post-rock indiscretion and instead start to file them alongside other be-voiced post rock like Mogwai and the Album Leaf.  

bvdub
Heartless

Beloved in the concrete court of Norman is bvdub, the heartbreaking ambient techno artist responsible for a slew of the loveliest releases. Real name Brock Van Wey, his work is both harnessing and expansive, bringing the listener close while scoping out big natural landscapes (check that one on the front cover). Heartless is the twenty-ninth record in this project, if you can believe it, and is purposed to sound a little huger in its layers.

Last Days
Seafaring

Northumberland based musician Graham Richardson (Last Days/St Kilda) crafts very still contemplative music. Emotionally raw and reflective pieces with acoustic, electronic and found sound elements. Returning to n5MD for his fifth full length Seafaring Richardson turns his focus to the sea and Ernest Shackleton. For fans of Helios, Loscil, The Album Leaf.

Loess
Pocosin

After a decade away from full-length album releases, Loess returns to treat you to a new suite of warm IDM ambience. Pocosin is released as a CD and in two different vinyl editions: one is clear, one is white with a black swirl, and we’ll be alternating between the two at random when shipping. Also, a download card with a bonus track. On n5MD.

dreissk
To Nowhere

Under his dreissk moniker, Kevin Patzelt makes blasted-sounded music that crosses the boundaries of hovering ambience, sinister industrial and epic post-rock. To Nowhere is the third full-length dreissk album to date, and it sounds especially accomplished and cinematic. CD in a gatefold sleeve on n5MD.

(ghost)
Everything We Touch Turns to Dust

From a great American city which pits skyscrapers against mountains, Denver producer (ghost) touches upon '00s era IDM for his 4th album. 9 tracks update the blueprint of that classic electronica decade and find the protagonist awaking from a deep sleep to be confronted and confounded by modern day dystopia. Sounds fun. CD on n5MD.

Miwon
Jigsawtooth

An album of new pieces from Miwon, expertly working pop approaches into a techno / electronica palette. Jigsawtooth feels light and airy with the interplay between its bright melodies and fast-stepping electronic rhythms: this is electronica with heart as well as spacey propulsion. LP / CD release on n5MD.

Ruxpin
We Become Ravens

Ruxpin makes fizzy little electronica miniatures from the heart of Iceland, and has done for nigh-on two decades now. We Become Ravens has all the warmth of twinkling vintage electronics, with stuttering beats, distant samples and melodic synth lines all swirling around each other in a nutritious mixture. Released on the n5MD label.

Tangent
Collapsing Horizons

Twinkling electronics from Dutch outfit Tangent here on their third album Collapsing Horizons. Each track could be excavated to reveal separate strata: glitchy beats, serene ambience, digital hiss and delicate melodies all coexist neatly together. Released as CD and as coloured vinyl LP on the n5MD label.

Near The Parenthesis
Helical

Near The Parenthesis, the project of Tim Arndt, returns to an early idea with seventh LP Helical. Here, the percussive aspects of the Parenthesis sound are stripped away, leaving Arndt’s melodic ambient compositions to shine in their own right. Mmmm, shimmering. Available as a CD or as a grey / “coke bottle clear” coloured vinyl edition. On n5MD.

port-royal
Where Are You Now

Since Roman times, Italy has been renowned for it’s strong (euro)dance culture. Prolonging ancient traditions, port-royal (mind the hyphen) have finally returned with a full length album. Where Are You Now is filled with catchy Mediterranean beats and brimming with electronic shoegazing energy.
