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.

Music For Dance & Theatre

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.

Outro Tempo: Electronic and Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1978-1992

Archivist wonderkids Music From Memory spread the love with their first compilation, sourcing tracks from a golden era of Brazilian electronics. Lapping from the late seventies to early nineties, this release spans upheavals both political and musical, as reflected in the different approaches and innovations made to electronic music -- considering that some of this includes jazz fusion and ambient, it matches quite well with previous MoM releases. Plenty of new artists to unfurl on this one.

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.

Suso Saiz
Rainworks

Having not released anything since 2008, Music From Memory released a compilation of Spanish ambient electronica producer and composer Suso Saiz. Known for his work with Orquesta de las Nubes and Música Esporádica as well as recording with Steve Reich, he has returned with a full length. Stunning, near abstract, and minimal in the most maximal of senses. Want glorious electroacoustic drones? Come here.

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-ass synth tracks that make up the Private Life II LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound. This one’s out via Music From Memory.

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.

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.

Dub’ that graced the original release as well as new versions by Lipelis and Androo.

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.

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.
