Italian experimental artist Maurizio Bianchi gets together with British sound designer Justin Wiggan for the first of a new series of collaborative albums.

Video Age
Pleasure Line

Perhaps indicated by its availability on a more limited ‘purple royalty’ coloured vinyl, Video Age have been mining their classic Eighties pop influences even more thoroughly than ever before on third studio album Pleasure Line. Perhaps motivated by Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli’s upcoming weddings, bright, optimistic pop melodies shine hard here. 

Washed Out
Purple Noon

Ernest Greene brings his Washed Out project back to Sub Pop for the project’s fourth studio album. On Purple Noon, the chillwave pioneer teams up once again with producer Ben H. Allen and ventures even further into hip-hop and R&B territory, with bright, sharply-defined sounds the order of the day. 

The Pheromoans
I, Mustard Mitt

More new music from the fantastically named The Pheromoans, who deliver a companion piece to last year’s studio album County Lines in the form of I, Mustard Mitt. Released on cassette, it’s a tight yet artistically free-spirited collection of minimalist guitar structures, drum machines and spoken word.

Hiroshi Yoshimura
Green

Hiroshi Yoshimura was an ambient music pioneer but sadly his music barely made it out of his native Japan in his lifetime. His debut album, Music For Nine Postcards, was reissued in 2017 and, along with him being discovered on YouTube, his popularity grew some 14 years after his death. Now we have his groundbreaking ambient masterpiece Green, reissued through Light In The Attic.
