Suso Saiz & Suzanne Kraft
Between No Things

Between No Things is a collaboration between two well-established figures in the ambient music landscape, Suso Sáiz and Suzanne Kraft. Having forged a friendly personal and then a creative relationship at a show in Amsterdam three years ago, sessions of experimental jams led to over 30 hours of raw material, edited down gradually to this striking album.

Garrett
Private Life II

A lot of people are guesstimating that Garrett is the secretive alias of boogietronica legend Dam-Funk. While this has been neither confirmed nor denied at the time of writing (17:00, 29th October, Year Of Our Lord 2018) people are, like, 99.9% sure - D-F’s real name is Damon GARRETT Riddick, after all. What’s more, the smooth synth tracks that make up the 'Private Life II' LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound.

Garrett
Private Life III

This is the third and final part of Garrett's 'Private Life' trilogy. The other two instalments showcase smooth synth and funk from an artist who has been rumoured to be an alter ego of Dâm-Funk. We don't know about that, but what we do know is that 'Private Life III' is more of the lush and ambient aural joy that has made this series essential relax listening. 

Gaussian Curve
Clouds

Amsterdam’s Music From Memory label continue their journey around Europe (Italy, the UK and the Netherlands are all represented here) but buck their own trend by releasing some brand new music rather than an archival treat. Clouds is the debut album of Gaussian Curve, a set of one-take improvised recordings in a groovy vein.

Michal Turtle
Return To Jeka

Dutch imprint Music From Memory gather eight tracks from the archives of Michal Turtle. 'Return To Jeka' is the label's third release in collaboration with the English artist. Previously, they raided his tapes for the 'Are You Psychic?' EP and 'Phantoms Of Dreamland' 2LP. Like those records, this rewinds back to the 80s and features eight previously unheard cuts of obscure Britsh synth music, produced between 1983 and 1985. We can hear his background in jazz and classical, and even the funk and dub influences that run through this electro-ambient-tropical doozy.

Richenel
Perfect Stranger

Six more tracks released by Music From Memory by the Dutch art-disco singer Richenel. The songs on Perfect Stranger are from Richenel's 1982 cassette only debut album La Diferencia. This is disco in the post-punk vein, all austere and jagged, but very danceable all the same.

Terekke
Improvisational Loops

Terekke, whose work is usually heard on the banging L.I.E.S. label, here takes a meditative approach for Music From Memory. Improvisational Loops is as it claims to be: an organically-developed suite for digital synthesiser and looper. The album grew out of some yoga classes, so the music is appropriately new age tinged.

Jonny Nash
Make A Wilderness

Jonny Nash has been going full ambient for some time now, but he really goes all in on this third solo album, Make A Wilderness. A slow pace, a mixture of distant synth swells, subtle strings, and glockenspiel etc. percussion make for a thoughtful and compelling suite. Make A Wilderness is released by Music From Memory.

Music For Dance & Theatre - Volume One

The first of a planned series of EPs on Music From Memory that provide a home for music originally intended for dance or theatrical performances, Music For Dance & Theatre is a four-track selection of pieces that range from ambient to percussive, from the likes of Gerard Stokkink, Ivory Playground, Atlantis Transit Project and Ramuntcho Matta. 

Priscilla Ermel
Origens Da Luz

Origens Da Luz is a brief highlights package of the career of Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist Priscilla Ermel. Assembled from original recordings made between 1986 and 1994, this double-LP package showcases Ermel’s love of taking traditional musical forms and enhancing them with her own take on synth technology. 

Dip In The Pool
On Retinae

On Retinae is a bright and pleasing slice of Japanese pop music recorded in the heart of the 1980’s. The track, the work of Dip In The Pool, glides forwards on a stately melody line for plucked synth lines, delicate vocals and unexpected (but thoroughly welcome) clarinet completing the picture. The entrancing tune is present here in two different versions. On Music From Memory.

Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)

Even by the standards of Music From Memory, this is an oddball. Label founder Jamie Tiller gets together with Parisian crate-digger Raphael Top-Secret to comb the annals of 80s/early 90s European music and find the weirdest stuff they can that still has a hint of a pop sensibility about it. Unsurprisingly, it’s a mixed bag - synthwave sits alongside avant-jazz; spoken-word pieces suddenly break out into Depeche Mode-style electro-pop; disco beats come topped with shoegaze atmospherics. A lot of fun to be had here.

Fools
Fools' Harp Vol. 1

Fools’ Harp Vol. 1 is the debut solo album from Grizzly Bear percussionist Christopher Bear, recording under the name Fools. Recorded largely during a six-week jamming session in the summer of 2019 in which he played every instrument himself, the results have a self-professed ‘mixtape’ feel, and explore strange areas while remaining rooted in the familiar. 

G.B. Beckers
Walkman

Trading for major money on Discogs (for original copies) and much less money on Normanogs (for the Music From Memory reissue), this 1982 LP from G. B. Beckers is a strange collection of art rock. The gentle, chorus-treated guitar parts hint at acts of like The Cure and Echo & The Bunnymen, but tracks such as ‘Vollmond’ are asides of heavily-treated experimental electronica.

Richenel
La Diferencia

A hit in his native Holland throughout the 1980s, Richenel was originally an art-school squatter in Amsterdam making lo-fi bedroom pop tapes before that was a proper thing. This album has been circulating in the lost-gems end of the blogosphere for some years, and now re-issuers extraordinaire Music From Memory are giving it a second chance on vinyl. It’s worth checking - punky funk in the vein of ESG, the lo-fi recording gives it great warmth and depth.

Leon Lowman
Liquid Diamonds

Liquid Diamonds is a collection of works from US East Coast surfer and synther Leon Lowman. Highlights from his two private press albums and some further, even rarer material from his personal archives are gathered up here, and what a trip through early 1980’s beach vibes it makes. On Music From Memory.

Michal Turtle
Are You Psychic? / Astral Decoy

Michael Turtle produced these tracks in the early 1980’s: now they are highlighted as part of Music From Memory’s series of 12”s. Are You Psychic? was recorded in the family living room aged 22, but both it and Astral Decoy sound fully-developed despite Turtle’s limited means. Full album reissue to follow...
