Jonathan Sharp
Divided Time

Divided Time by sound designer and composer, Jonathan Sharp is a collection of pieces inspired and written for a collection of photographs he found that were taken between 1970 and 1977. Using piano and gentle electronic sounds, Sharp attempts to relive the photo in sound. Fans of Virginia Astley and Mark Peters will find this to be a joy.

Visage Pâle
Holistic Love

Visage Pâle is the recording moniker of Lars Martin-Isler. Holistic Love is his debut LP. Isler is part-Swiss, part-Swedish and is based in Lausanne in a French speaking region of Switzerland. The songs are sung in English and French. They are made using a whole host of analogue electronic machines, creating emotionally charged, fragile and ethereal soundscapes.

Concretism
For Concrete and Country

Some good old-fashioned idiosyncrasy from Concretism here. For Concrete And Country synthesises much of the Great British oddball lineage - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box Records, Public Service Broadcasting etc. - with a newly-resurfaced Cold War paranoia. It’s the aural equivalent of a day out in Dungeness. The fact that the artwork was done by Richard Littler (the brains behind Scarfolk) only adds to the sense of strangeness.

Patrick R. Pärk
Library Sounds

Not sure if you can make an album inspired by library music and then just call it Library Sounds, but hey, what does it matter when those sounds are so pleasant? Patrick R. Park created these eleven tracks of ambientish, synthish, vibey music for you to enjoy in the background, but we reckon it more than warrants foreground listening too. On Castles In Space.

Soundhog
Astrablast / Newtown Parkway

Despite Soundhog spending over a decade away before the release of this single, it finds the bastard popster in typically cheeky form. ‘Astrablast’ is Glitterbeat as imagined by a member of the Central Processing Unit family, while ‘Newtown Parkway’ could have soundtracked something off public access television back in the day. It all makes you wonder what Late Of The Pier might be getting up now to if their drummer hadn’t passed away.

Gary Cook
The Fabulous World Of Gary Cook

Very little is known to have come out of Barrow-in-Furness - the Cumbrian town at the tip of the Furness peninsular. Lots of ships and submarines were built there, Liverpool and England captain Emlyn Hughes was born there and its bus depot was referenced in a 1980s Chewits commercial. There was also its thriving but largely self-contained music scene. Gary Cook was a central figure in this scene, as a member of several bands and as a solo performer, until he died in 2006 at the age of 41. He was loved and respected by those that knew him. The Fabulous World of Gary Cook is a compilation of his lo-fi guitar and analogue electronic indie-goth-pop. Lyrically he is confessional, honest and at times funny and camp. The music, a collection spanning 30 years, is compiled from cassettes he left behind. Limited edition of 300 red vinyl with black and white splatter, hand numbered, never to be repressed.

Two Ragged Soldiers
/Asulya​/​/​Water

Two Ragged Soldiers are a duo (yes, there really are two of them) who craft music that straddles the borders between contemporary music and electronica. //Asulya//Water is a two-track 7” that offers a tantalising preview of The Mass, which we will apparently hear later down the line. Limited edition of 300 on Castles in Space.
