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...view item »


Winterlight
The Longest Sleep Through The Darkest Days

Plymouth shoegaze/electronic poppers Winterlight are keeping it in the family with their latest album which sees leader Tim Ingham's daughter Isabel taking over on bass duties. Cute. They've taken seven years over this faffing with all kinds of sounds before realising if it ain't broke don't fix it. Smart. ...view item »

Axel Rigaud
Transformation

Alex Rigaud mixes electronic music and jazz on his debut album, Transformation.

Red and white coloured vinyl or CD on n5MD....view item »


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) gi...view item »


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 t...view item »


Porya Hatami & Arovane
Kaziwa

Strange, delicate experimental songcraft from Porya Hatami and Arovane. Kaziwa features lots of stately piano, creeping around in an uncanny atmosphere of electronics. Everything feels an intimate ritual, observed from a distance. Kaziwa is available in a regular Digipak CD edition or a...view item »

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.

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...view item »

bvdub
All Is Forgiven

You could time my sleep last night in seconds rather than minutes. It was a sheer waste of time for all concerned. Thursday nights? This feller aint sleepin’. Whether it’s the burnout from too many record reviews or the apprehension of facing the Friday pack ‘n’ se...view item »

OKADA
Misery

If you’re a fan of Bonobo and Helios, mix it with a little of Loscil’s elongated ambience and drudgy, yet sonically on-point percussion you get Greg Pappas’ (ZXYZXY) Okada project. Tracks average 15 minutes in length and play o...view item »


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). ...view item »


Last Days
Seafaring

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.

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 n5...view item »


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....view item »

Ruxpin
We Become Ravens

Ruxpin makes fizzy little electronica miniatures from the heart of Iceland, and has done for nigh-on two decades now.

Collapsing Horizons

Twinkling electronics from Dutch outfit Tangent here on their third album Collapsing Horizons.

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. A...view item »

Ocoeur
Reversed

Vittoria Fleet

Vittoria Fleet are a Berlin duo who make sharp and angular electronica. Greed is their second album, a generous selection of tracks that are inventive in their sound design, but not to the point of preventing them working as actual songs.

OKADA
Impermanence

Impermanence is the name of this latest OKADA album, and the music manages to carry out the promise of the title. No element feels like it will stay in place for very long: even as a vocal, a piano line, or an electronic burr slides into view, it already seems to be fading again.

This dog has some chicken in its mouth but is otherwise fairly unspectacular. I wanna see an obese breakdancing Alsatian or a Chihuahua being sick everywhere. Oh the music! Am I supposed to be reviewing it? By ML, It sounds pretty good but Fats has paused it to talk to some duffer on the phone about a band called "Cosmic Sandwich". Mu...view item »

A Vast and Decaying Appearance

IDM happens at breakneck speed on 'A Vast and Decaying Appearance'. The title track goes in with a ferocious beat that seeks to obliterate anything in its path before relenting for a gorgeous, spaced-out piano loop that brings the whole thing back to its beautiful surface.

With a title like 'Cloud. Not Mountain', it's either gotta be post-rock or some sort of IDM.

Not Mountain' continues his expert textural work, while in...view item »

Getting ever so loose with Dryft aka Mike Cadoo. The Blur Vent is the new paradigm from the Oakland producer.
