Last Week's Overlooked Stuff

Things move so quickly in rock and roll. So quick in fact that by Tuesday we're onto the upcoming new releases and we've all forgotten those people who released records just a few days ago. In this new (hopefully) weekly feature, we'll round up a few things from the previous week we all missed in the rush to get to the weekend as soon as is humanely possible...

Aidan Baker & Idklang
In The Red Room

‘In The Red Room’ is where the ambient drones of Aidan Baker (Nadja, B/B/S/) meet the experimental sound designs of Idklang aka Markus Steinkellner (Arktis/Air) over two epic, twenty minute instrumental tracks of gentle, effects driven, ambient guitar drone over repetitive, krautrock beats.

Anton Zap
Subculture EP

Russian electronic producer Anton Zap aka Anton Barbashev returns to Apollo following his highly acclaimed debut release ‘Water’. Building from the rich house sound of his first release, Zap expands into new sonic areas from the blazed hip hop rhythms of’ Free Fall’ or the motivational breakbeats of ‘Incident’ to the techno space dub of ‘Pauspapier’.

Arthur's Landing
Second Thoughts

Arthur’s Landing is the name given to this project in which songs by the belived Arthur Russell are mixed and remixed by a bevy of talent. In the case of Second Thoughts we have Alkino, Bob Blank, Virgin Magnetic Material and several others. LP version is split across two parts, on Buddhist Army.

Best Available Technology
Excavated Tapes 1992-1999, Vol. 2

Excavated Tapes Vol. 2 presents to the listener the sound of Kevin Palmer’s (known as Best Available Technology) bedroom circa the 90’s, dusty old cassettes gathered up from their boxes and bumped onto nice new tapes by Astro:Dynamics. Killer lo-fi drum machine beat jams and experimental atmospherics.

Boys Noize
Sessions Pt.3

Boys Noize is such a consummate professional at turning out massive house / techno that he has decided to limit his palette for the Sessions: just one drum machine and one or two synths, all-analogue jams in the studio. For Pt.3 he welcomes in the likes of Tiga, SCNTST and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to lend a hand. Banging.

Chicaloyoh
Les Sept Salons

Following her 2013 debut LP ‘Folie Sacré’, Alice Dourlen aka Chicaloyoh’s latest release ‘Les Septs Salons’ documents her non stop, eighteen month world tour. Chicaloyoh brings her arsenal of creative skills and experiences to the table such as her dramatic theatrical styles, experience with sound experimentation, penchant for oriental aesthetics and her multilingual upbringing to produce evocative, psychedelic soundscapes.

Danny & The Champions Of The World
What Kind Of Love

‘What Kind Of Love’ will be the fifth studio album from London based folk/rock/soul band Danny & The Champions Of The World, fronted by Danny Wilson (Grand Drive). This ten track release was recorded at Champs’s bass player/producer Chris Clarke’s Reservoir Sound studio in north London following their extensive world tour as documented in the 2014 rockumentary ‘Live Champs!’ and as the title suggests is an album that explores many different kinds of love.

EVOL
Purple Melters

Brain-smashing hardcore wave-synthesis from Evol here on this new 12” on iDEAL Recordings. The aim of these intense, super-repetitive pieces is apparently to warp the listener’s perceptions, and it seems to me to do an excellent job. Get your Purple Melters on yellow vinyl, with a free sticker of a mocking acid smiley face.

Loui$
Magic Dance / Pink Footpath

Originally released in 1985, Loui$’s Italo masterpiece quickly became an anthemic staple of the early Ibiza scene as well as a dance party favourite of underground New York and Chicago. The A side ‘Magic Dance’ is great but it’s the instrumental B side ‘Pink Footpath’’s killer bass lines, hazy guitars and dreamy soft synths that have made this rare gem such a sought after release.

Lucy and Klock
War Lullaby

Arpeggiated drones and propulsive 4/4 techno collide in this stonking 12” from Lucy and Klock. A big collaboration between Ben Klock and Lucy War Lullaby offers a mesmerising combination of chest-thumping kick drums and glassy, out of this world chords. Spatial and hypnotic. Out on 12” vinyl from Stroboscopic Artefacts.

Robert Leiner
Melomania

Robert Leiner has been producing highly acclaimed techno / house / acid more or less since the birth of all three of those genres, and Melomenia represents the first we’ve heard from him in quite a while: and this time, he’s also working with a band! Nine tracks spanning multiple electronic genres, and the little interesting crannies in between them.

Rolo Tomassi
Grievances

Rip-roaring Sheffield powerhouse Rolo Tomassi are back with new album Grievances. The fourth studio album progresses further into melodic realms complete with Tortoise-esque drums and jangly post-rock guitar lines leading to a quintessentially epic Rolo Tomassi finale. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Holy Roar.

The Frozen Vaults
1816

The Frozen Vaults are a far flung, five piece modern classical music collective. ‘1816’ is a conceptual work based on the year 1816 which was one of the coldest years for the world in recorded history, also known as ‘the year with no summer’. The Frozen Vaults have created stunningly beautiful visual soundscapes constructed from frozen white noise, chilling tones and slow building atmospheres that grow up from the ground like ice.

Throwing Shade
Fate Xclusive EP

A sparkly, reverby record from upcoming London producer Throwing Shade. The Fate Xclusive EP touches down in a few different territories: the single ‘Honeytrap’s odd-pop contains strains of 90’s trip-hop, contemporary postmodern electronics, and a strikingly direct vocal performance. 12” on No Pain In Pop.

Various
Hubris

The name of the record label, Quietus Phonographic Corporation, is not a misnomer. Hubris is a record on which readings from boss-man John Doran’s book, Jolly Lad, are accompanied by music from a number of Quietus favourites: Nicky Wire, Hamilton and Abi from British Sea Power, Perc… Quite a special little release.

Various
