Matt Karmil
STS371

A ruminative album of ambient, hazy house music constructed from loops and soft-edged beats, STS371 is the fifth collection from British-born producer Matt Karmil. Put together at his own studio in Cologne, Karmil’s work fits neatly into an impressive output that dates back his earliest album ----.

Carmen Villain
Both Lines Will Be Blue Remixed

Carmen Villain scored a critical hit in 2019 with her album Both Lines Will Be Blue, a work of electronic majesty. Capitalising on its success, she releases a five-track remix mini-album of the LP’s cuts, picking the likes of Parris, Karima F., DJ Python, D.K. and Jay Glass Dubs to re-wire the originals.

Kelly Lee Owens
Inner Song

Inner Song is the long-awaited second album from Welsh musician Kelly Lee Owens, three years on from her excellent self-titled debut that made her one of the most acclaimed newcomers in electronica for years. A more reflective creation than its predecessor, it combines introspective songwriter with the inventive beat-making that she won so much love for.

Deathprod
Morals and Dogma

The early works of Norwegian experimentalist Deathprod (aka Supersilent member Helge Sten) here receive some attention from Smalltown Supersound’s reissues division. Morals And Dogma is a particularly dense Deathprod record, composed over many years using multiple guest musicians in addition to Sten’s electronics rig. Vinyl reissue.

Yoshinori Hayashi
γ

Y, a four-track 12” EP, follows the well-received Ambivalence album which served as the debut record from Tokyo-based producer Yoshinori Hayashi back in 2018. The influences of avant-garde classical composers, including his mentor Mica Nozawa, are evident throughout the unpredictable collection.

Lindstrom
On a Clear Day I Can See Forever

Lindstrøm presents his sixth solo studio album On A Clear Day I Can See Forever. Based around long, one-take recordings and inspired by the material he wrote for a special performance last winter at Norway’s Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, the new record has essentially seen him debunk his old ways of creating music, using physical instruments and not computer technology. 
  • Label(s):
  • Smalltown Supersound

Deathprod
Occulting Disk

First new Deathprod album in 15 years as Oslo's Helge Sten re-constitutes the project that has already produced some of the most immersive ambient music of our times. His previous output has always been raw and powerful politically aware ambient music which has drawn comparisons to GAS, Swans and Tim Hecker. A much needed comeback to soundtrack these turbulent times. Liner notes by unlikely fan Will Oldham who reveals he listens to Deathprod with his mum.

Carmen Villain
Both Lines Will Be Blue

Carmen Villain’s long and fruitful relationship with Smalltown Supersound spawns a third LP. On Both Lines Will Be Blue - the follow-up to the buzz-building Infinite Avenue - the Norwegian-Mexican artist delivers another set of peyote-hazed, fourth world psychedelia. New age, kosmische, dub and ambient music are all wrapped up in these languorous electronic compositions. The final results recall Inga Copeland.

Kelly Lee Owens
Let It Go

Kelly Lee Owens gives a proper 12” release to Let It Go, a juicy banger previously only heard in the bowels of Fabric. A rubbery rhythm bounces along with vigour and confidence, giving way to the breathy titular vocal. The track is supported by another exclusive cut, Omen. 12” on Smalltown Supersound.

Prins Thomas
Ambitions

Norwegian producer Prins Thomas has a surprise in store on his sixth LP Ambitions - he’s started using vocals! Well, kind of anyway. Lead single ‘Feel The Love’ features Thomas layering dreamy, reverb-drenched sampled harmonies over the kind of Nordic Balearicism we’ve come to know and love him for. It sets the tone nicely for the rest of Ambitions, a record on which Thomas claims direct inspiration from Haruomi Hosono, Ricardo Villalobos, Shinichi Atobe and a few others.

Erik Wøllo
Sources (Early Works 1986-1992)

Smalltown Supersound drop a collection of previously unreleased works from Nordic ambient pioneer Erik Wøllo. The tracks that make up Sources (Early Works 1986-1992) have their genesis in the sessions surrounding Wøllo’s mid-80’s trio of Dreams Of Pyramids, Traces and Silver Beach. Anyone familiar with those LPs will already know of Wøllo’s woozy synth stylings, part-Eno and part-Schulze. Artists such as Boards Of Canada and Prins Thomas owe Wøllo a debt.

Bendik Giske
Surrender

Saxophone-wunderkind Bendik Giske delivering his hypnotizing debut. With the sense of a more accessible and less intimidating Colin Stetson, the Norwegian explores all the nooks and crannies of the sax. Surrender is the man’s first full-length but it’s packed with warm sounds, the clicking of valves, and mesmerizing rhythms. Great reed, would recommend.

Smalltown Supersound 25 (The Movement Of Free Spirit Mixed By Prins Thomas)

Smalltown Supersound is one of the good ones. Over the past quarter-century Joakim Haugland’s label has grown from a teenage bedroom operation into one of the most respected imprints in contemporary electronics. To celebrate their milestone birthday Haugland has enlisted the services of Smalltown veteran Prins Thomas for The Movement Of Free Spirit, a mega-mix of tunes released on STS down the years. The CD boxset contains three mixes and the first one of those has been pressed for the vinyl edition.

Celer
Memory Repetitions

Coming to a letterbox or collection depot near you: it’s Celer, the reliably ambient and ambiently reliable work of Tokyo resident Will Long - someone whose surname accurately describes his discography. This is a muscular five-parter - one lengthy part per disc - aimed to reflect back on the Celer story so far. Highly recommended to fans of Celer.

  • Smalltown Supersound

Yoshinori Hayashi
Ambivalence

Transcending genres like Nosaj Thing on a detuned bicycle, Japanese producer Yosinori Hayashi’s debut album is a collage of bongo breakbeats, forlorn jazz samples, and wobbly synthesizers. Ambivalence. We'll say it reminds of ill-maintained carnival ride and of undiscovered Boards of Canada b-sides, but a little stranger.
  • Label(s):
  • Smalltown Supersound

Bendik Giske
Adjust

Oslo artist Bendik Giske here articulates the music, narratives and musical narratives of club culture using little more than a saxophone. If it sounds a bit strange it’s because it is, but Giske’s highly focused and expressive project is also very compelling and gorgeous. Comes armed with remixes and reinterpretations by the motley crew of Total Freedom, Lotic, Deathprod and Rezzett.

Neneh Cherry
Broken Politics

Neneh Cherry produced by Four Tet: what a contemporary dream team eh? Broken Politics is an album that engages with the dark nonsense-scape we live in, with Neneh’s lyrics and vocal delivery packing a smart punch. Broken Politics, which also features 3D from Massive Attack, is released by Smalltown Supersound.

Supersilent
14

Still out here, still making remarkable music, still refusing to put their time into graphic design or making up titles: its Supersilent! The mighty electroacoustic trio of Helge Sten (Deathprod), Arve Henriksen and Ståle Storløkken continue to blur the boundaries between post-jazz, electronic music, and see-what-comes improvisation on 14, with the wonderful inventive chemistry between the group as apparent as ever. Out on Smalltown Supersound.

Bugge Wesseltoft & Prins Thomas
Bugge Wesseltoft & Prins Thomas

Prins Thomas has been keeping busy hasn’t he. After a solo full-length, a collaborative LP with Bjorn Torske, some remixes and a bunch of EPs back in 2017, he’s now readying a new album alongside Norwegian jazz pianist Bugge Wesseltoft. The five lengthy tracks here meet somewhere in-between Wesseltoft’s downtempo lounge-hop and the spacey disco we usually associate with Thomas. It’s a very pleasant affair. Out, of course, on Smalltown Supersound.

Bjørn Torske
Byen

Bjorn Torske celebrates two decades in the game with his fifth solo LP, which is also his first in eight years. Byen conflates Torske’s two principle aesthetics (buoyant Nordic disco-house and stately, palatial synth ambiences) to produce nine elegant tracks. It’s a lengthy record - there's generally one track per side of this double LP - but such is Torske’s command of his craft that things never feel over-long. Out, as you might expect, on Smalltown Supersound.

Kelly Lee Owens
Kelly Lee Owens

As her star rises ever-higher, Kelly Lee Owens has picked a fine moment to release her debut full-length. ‘The colours, the beauty, the motion’ she opines over ‘CBM’, and it’s a neat summation of a record that has its eyes firmly on the dancefloor while still searching for the personal warmth of classic singer-songwriter fare. No surprise, then, that ‘Arthur’ is a paean to Arthur Russell and single ‘Anxi’ is a Jenny Hval collab.

Carmen Villain
Infinite Avenue

Carmen Villain’s first album since 2013’s Sleeper looks likely to find the singer moving into ever-more expansive sonic territory. This move was threatened by Infinite Avenue’s light-as-gossamer first single ‘Planetarium’, a track that sounded like Radiohead’s ‘Sail to the Moon’ being covered by Grouper. If that song and the follow-up ‘Red Desert’ are anything to go by, Infinite Avenue will be a record of cerebral drones and quietly confident songwriting. Jenny Hval guests on ‘Borders’.

Borders (Klara Lewis Remix) / Red Desert (Biosphere Remix)

This little 12” contains a veritable cornucopia of talent. As well as Carmen Villain herself, we also have Jenny Hval, making a feature on Borders, and the remixing /  reconstructing talents of Klara Lewis and Biosphere, each offering refreshing new takes on tracks from Villain’s album Infinite Avenue. 12” from Smalltown Supersound.

Prins Thomas
Dungen & Sun Araw Remixes

Two rather interesting producers give some of Prins Thomas’ groovy work a going-over on this 12”. Gustav Estjes of psychish rock band Dungen does ‘D’ and weird-dub sound-soup worker Sun Araw takes on ‘B’. Plus, a previously unreleased original Prins track in the form of ‘J’. 12” on Smalltown Supersound.

Bjørn Torske & Prins Thomas
Square One

Norwegian producers Bjorn Torske and Prins Thomas both experiment with disco and house their crossovers with kraut and world music. Separately had releases on multiple labels before both ending up on the Smalltown Supersound. Their collaboration has become loose and improvised avantgarde disco, recording multiple live takes and sorting through it all in the editing stage. A great mix of the organic and produced.

Dan Lissvik
Midnight

First post-birth (of his baby, not of Dan himself) album from Dan Lissvik, who used to play in Studio. Midnight is so titled because that's when Lissvik could creep away from his fatherhood duties to tinker with sounds. And these 8 cuts do have a late-night swing to them, a lush dubbed groove. Out on Smalltown Supersound.

Andre Bratten
Gode

André Bratten’s new record Gode is a mash of electroacoustics and contemporary composition (Giacinto Scelsi and Biosphere get shout outs in the list of influences) that has clearly been intensely laboured over. The album is reportedly Bratten’s most personal work to date. On Smalltown Supersound.

Deathprod
Treetop Drive

The early works of Norwegian experimentalist Deathprod (aka Supersilent member Helge Sten) here receive some attention from Smalltown Supersound’s reissues division. Treetop Drive is an early 90’s work composed using Sten’s ‘Audio Virus’ array, spinning twisted samples and unruly electronics into a satisfyingly fried-sounding whole. LP reissue with remastered audio.

Prins Thomas
The Orb Remixes

There comes a time in some lucky producers’ lives when they receive they honour of having their own work remixed by a bona fide legend. That time has come for Prins Thomas, who here gets a pair of tracks from his Principe Del Norte album reworked by The Orb themselves! These spacey wonders are a treat for listeners as well as for Prins: available from Smalltown Supersound.

Every album and EP they’ve released this year is represented on this combination sampler and best-of, from Supersilent and Biosphere to Lindstrøm and Mr. Tophat + Robyn. Quality stuff all round.

Dungen
Häxan

Dungen’s album Häxan (their first entirely instrumental record) began as a score to the 1926 film The Adventures Of Prince Achmed, but ended up wandering off course into more abstract and witchy territory. The results are lush and super evocative. Bonus fact: the whole album was put together using only analogue tape! Released by Scandinavian sound stronghold Smalltown Supersound.

Runddans

Old school rock dude Todd Rundgren releasing on the Norwegian Smalltown Supersound label? Something odd is afoot… Indeed, Runddans finds Rundgren collaborating with Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, of nu-disco fame, and Serena-Maneesh shoegazer Emil Nikolaisen. Good on him! The results are cosmic, psychedelic, soulful.

Trobel

Supremely smooth vibes for all who feel best served in the morning by coffee and dub: Trobel is Bjorn Torske offering us a wild ride but then flattening it out into sweet, inoffensive beats; he carries out a few controlled synth implosions here and there, keeping the mood light and easy. A little bit psychedelic, a little bit dub and a lot bit disco, Trobel is mostly for your chill time.
