A-Sun Amissa
Ceremony In The Stillness

More of that West Yorkshire ambient-drone-and-more goodness from A-Sun Amissa on Gizeh! Ceremony In The Stillness is the project’s perfectly named fourth full-length, and as well as those deep dark smooth atmospheres, it also features both thick riffs and actual drums in a few places, bringing another angle into the Amissa world. A very atmospheric record.

Julia Kent & Jean D.L.
The Great Lake Swallows

Guitarist and tape looper Jean D.L. trades some threads of thought with the esteemed experimental cellist Julia Kent and a whole album comes out. You lucky lot. A gorgeous timbral juxtaposition sees The Great Lake Swallows become a unique soundworld of its own, one combining crystalline guitar, aching cello and acousmatic sound. Gizeh rule!

Christine Ott
Tabu

Gizeh good, Gizeh good… isn’t that how that Shamen song goes? Gizeh pretty good in this case anyway, following up French ondes martenot virtuoso, pianist and composer Christine Ott’s Only Silence Remains with her soundtrack to the 2012 film Tabu, a story of the south seas. To the unfolding unease of the film, about forbidden love on the island of Bora-Bora, Ott contributes great tension, as well as an almost supernatural, indistinct antagonism.

Tomorrow We Sail
The Shadows

Leeds six piece Tomorrow We Sail issue their second album 'The Shadows' which will be a treat for fans of that brand of post rock that is starting to fade away a bit these days. I'm talking full on soaring heavy duty atmospherics with nods towards Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor.

Hundred Year Old Man
Rei

Leeds based six-piece Hundred Year Old Man delve deeply into the post-sludge sound with their second release, Rei. Drawing heavily on the likes of Neurosis, this three track 12” drags you under with their monolithic, towering sound. Walls of atmospheric and bludgeoning guitars crash into a cathartic sludge.

Aidan Baker / Simon Goff / Thor Harris
Noplace

Aidan Baker, Simon Goff and Thor Harris recorded Noplace in the space of a few hours at Berlin’s Redrum Studios. The album comes from an improvised jam which was then re-ordered and edited to form the cohesive music herein. Guitars and violin tussle over motorik beats to create a kind of warm psychedlic krautrock. The three musicians have previously played in Swans, Shearwater, Bee & Flower, Molecular, Nadja, B/B/S and Caudal. 180g vinyl LP, limited to 500 copies on Gizeh.

Otto Lindholm
Alter

Four track second full length album from Belgium’s Otto Lindholm. Layers of bowed and scraped double bass loops interweave with electronics to create expansive ambient drone that sways softly, yet grippingly, between the light and dark. For fans of Deaf Center, Richard Skelton etc.. Limited LP on Gizeh.

A.R.C. Soundtracks
Dereliction/Mirror

The third album from A.R.C. Soundtracks is Dereliction / Mirror, hewn together over the course of a residency at the Islington Mill. Dark, dread-heavy post-industrial synths mix with vintage hauntological vibes, with rhythmic aspects and spoken word occasionally rearing their heads up into the mix. Limited edition of 175 CDs on Gizeh.

Astrid & Rachel Grimes
Through The Sparkle

Here is an interesting sounding collaboration between French ensemble Astrid and Rachel's founder and pianist Rachel Grimes. Following years of email correspondence the two hooked up in France to collaborate and the result is this an album of miniature symphonies, gentle and cinematic sounds and haunting neo-classical.

Brave Timbers
Hope

Brave Timbers began life as a solo project for multi-instrumentalist Sarah Kemp but on Hope Andrew Scrogham joins to flesh out her subtle compositions with mournful piano. This vinyl LP from Gizeh draws on ambient and neo-classical forms, the piano and violin create a dream-like atmosphere, but Kemp also knows how to write emotive and memorable melodies.

Aidan Baker & Karen Willems
Nonland

Nadja drone-guitar lord Aidan Baker spent a day in the studio with drummer and Inwolves leader Karen Willems last year, improvising and following one another into interesting musical corners. Nonland is a subtly developing beast, audiby the product of two serious talents opening up with each other. Edition of 300 LPs in Gizeh.

FOUDRE!
Earth

FOUDRE!, a remarkable quartet including members of Saåad, The Rustle Of The Stars, Extreme Precautions and I Pilot Dæmon, performed this piece (in a Gothic church!) as a live accompaniment to Ho Tzu Nyen’s film Earth. Deep and rich drone pieces that really go some places. Edition of 300 blue vinyl LPs on Gizeh.

Nadja
The Stone Is Not Hit By The Sun Nor Carved with A Knife

Nadja, the long-running heavy ambient guitar duo of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff, have a new album of typically dense sonics out on the Gizeh label. The Stone Is Not Hit By The Sun Nor Carved With A Knife is good for blasting away what ails you, and is available both on CD and on vinyl: the LP edition has the interesting quirk of a locked groove halfway through one side, meaning infinitely sustained drone!

Shield Patterns
Mirror Breathing

Manchester duo Shield Patterns return with a second album of downbeat, cinematic tunes. Recorded in their studio high in the Peak District they produce the kind of evocative compositions that would appeal to fans of Bat for Lashes and Zola Jesus. Ethereal and hypnotic, the album has an other worldly feel that mirrors the bleak but stunning surroundings in which it was written.  

Anders Brørby
Nihil

Leeds-based ambient drone label Gizeh have a new outlet for their work: the Dark Peak series. Norwegian artist Anders Brøby is a perfect fit, given that Nihil is a shadowy collection of tracks, exploring emptiness and darkness with just enough melody to pull in adventurous fans of his old band Radiant Frequency. Hand-crafted packaging!

Christine Ott
Only Silence Remains

Christine Ott (a long-term member of Yann Tiersen's touring band) is a rare talent with the Ondes Martenot, a strange and remarkable early electronic instrument. On Only Silence Remains she pairs it with piano, harmonium and tubular bells for a sensitive melodic suite. Ott’s first full-length solo album in 7 years, Only SIlence Remains is released by Gizeh.

Last Harbour
Paler Cities

Last Harbour follow up their recent full-length album Caul with this single, which contains 2 brand-new tracks. Paler Cities has a strong, brooding feel to it, with vocalist K Craig sounding distant and troubled while the band propel themselves on, on. 7” single on Leeds’ own Gizeh Records, with 2 exclusive bonus tracks available via download code.

Æmaeth
The Roman

These dark and atmospheric drones from Æmaeth form the soundtrack to silent film The Roman. Composed from improvised guitar and piano, not only are they powerful accompaniments to the film, but beautiful long-form compositions in their own right. The glacial pace slowly reveals Æmaeth’s subtle and ornate neoclassical arrangements.

Aidan Baker
Half Lives

Returning after Aidan Baker’s previous album Already Drowning, Half Lives is two albums on a CD each and continues his experimental approach to music, with the music described as “constructed” due to different experiments being woven into each other to create some moody, bass driven tunes of heavily layered and diverse sound.

Last Harbour
Caul

Gloomy rock from Last Harbour in their latest release, Caul. After taking some time out from their last album and tour, they have created another beautiful album which merges bleak experimentation with moments of joy and transcendance. Featuring the band’s most epic piece yet, a 13-minute epic cinematic piece. CD and vinyl on Gizeh.

Ormonde
Cartographer / Explorer

Anna-Lynne Williams has made some of the most soft-spoken and supremely gentle slowcore of the modern era, both as part of Trespassers William and alone under the alias of Lotte Kestner. Now, she joins forces with Robert Gomez for 'Cartographer/Explorer', another twilit record in which their vocals are constantly conjoined against a dramatic backdrop of twinkling guitars, firm beats and ominous electronics.

Chantal Acda
Live In Dresden

Chantal Acda is a singer-songwriter of the folk persuasion, but her version of that cliché is a little bit different: under the name Sleepingdog, she's collaborated with drone artist Adam Wiltzie to make sparse, ambient-leaning records such as 'Polar Life'. Her first solo record (made with contributions from Nils Frahm), 'Let Your Hand Be My Guide', is accompanied by 'Live In Dresden', which offers up six renditions of tracks from the record. As ever, Acda's music is recommended for fans of Low, Stars of the Lid and falling asleep to beautiful music. 

Loscil / Fieldhead
Fury and Hecla

This is a second pressing of the long sold out collaboration between Vancouver-based musician Scott Morgan as Loscil and Newcastle Upon Tyne based Paul Elam as Fieldhead. Both musicians are known for creating droning icy soundscapes. Loscil has previously released a series of well-regarded albums on Kranky citing krautrock greats Cluster, Gavin Byars and a wealth of film composers as influence.  Fieldhead has released two albums of textured soundscapes marked by tape hiss and haunted loops on the Home Assembly and Gizeh labels. This new album showcases superb examples of each composers work and was initially sold on a joint tour but was almost immediately unavailable.
