Perrache
Barriere in Movimento

Polytechnic Youth have been getting all excited about the debut album from Perrache. The Stuttgart-based artist featured on the label’s Popcorn Lung compilation last year, creating a buzz. Barriere in Movimento is a slow burning listen, dark and industrial at the edges with most of the songs using a Moog as a starting point.

Smile Eyes and the Children Folk
Smile Eyes and the Children Folk

Released by Horror Pop Sounds in their quest to unearth long-forgotten archival sounds in conjunction with London’s Polytechnic Youth, Smile Eyes And The Children Folk was the bizarre soundtrack to an equally strange (and never-aired) Polish kids TV show in the early Eighties. The man responsible for the curious sounds was Polish composer Szczepan Buczkowski, whose warm synthesiser creations house moments of bliss as well as terror.

The Heartwood Institute
Tomorrow’s People

Tomorrow’s People sees Jonathan Sharp continue his fascination with Seventies counter-culture on his latest album as The Heartwood Institute. Sampled dialogue provides a very loose narrative thread for the record, while Sharp lays down a series of soundscapes that deeply evoke the feeling of dread felt by the era’s idealists and progressives.

Colin Potter
Here

A first-time vinyl re-issue for an album that was previously released only on cassette way back in 1981, Colin Potter’s DIY electronica album Here is now blown up to a double-LP set that includes a veritable bonanza of unreleased material and with new sleeve art from original designer Jonathan Coleclough.

Tomorrow Syndicate
Citizen Input

Following up on their brilliant debut album from last year Future Tense and bridging a gap between their second effort expected in 2020, this is a special 10” vinyl EP from Tomorrow Syndicate. More confident and comfortable than their home-recorded album, Citizen Input adds more elements to their sci-fi/krautrock sonic compounds.

Gabe Knox
ABC

Gabe Knox has been doing his own thing with a series of digital EP releases, producing exactly the kind of electronic music he likes best: jaunty, pulsing, melodic, playful, droning. Those EPs, A, B and C have now had their finest tracks extracted and remastered for this ‘proper’ vinyl collection, naturally titled ABC. On Polytechnic Youth.

Mitra Mitra
Marionettes

Here's a new thing on the ever popular Polytechnic Youth label this time from this Austrian duo who play icy electronic pop reminiscent of the early days of Mute Records although the band claim not to be influenced by a particular style. Serene and melodic the album contains eight tracks and is a one time pressing of 300 only.

Objeto
Micromundos

Combing the whole world for electronic sounds, Polytechnic Youth has now turned to Spain for this project from Jordi Navarra who blends space rock and primitive electronic sounds. Here he concentrates on simple electronic pieces that reference Hans-Joachim Roedelius but also have some pretty severe nods towards post punk and minimal wave.
