A New Line (Related)
Our Lady Of Perpetual Fucking Succour

A long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed self titled debut (Dead Albatross nominated no less), this is a four track EP of minimal techno repetition from Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer). With roots in the deep dark dub of pioneers such as Terrence Dixon, Johnson has been influenced by recent collaborations with Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and has stripped his sound back to ultra repetitive beats and hypnotic dance floor jams. There are four tracks on the vinyl plus extra remixes on the download (Beppu, Perfume Advert, Maxim Wolzyn, the Humble Bee and Northerner).   **INITIAL COPIES COME WITH BONUS SIGNED POSTCARD**

Fieldhead
They Shook Hands For Hours

Paul Elam (aka Fieldhead) was (and probably still is) a bearded explorer of the kind of lo-fi loop based music that was popular in the early to mid 2000s. He blended a jittery, glitchy production style with swathes of haunting ambience that sounded like they'd escaped from the Stars of the Lid book of haunt. They Shook Hands For Hours was the first of three albums he made and will appeal to any fans of cinematic electronica.    

Insecto
Post Edit de un Cromosoma

Coming straight outta Chile, this UK debut from producer Jimmy Pizzaro re-imagines the classic Mille Plateaux "clicks and cuts" microbeat sound adding jazzy chords and lush arrangements to create a glistening modern day take on the micro-house genre.  This wonderfully packaged double LP will particularly appeal to fans of SND, Aphex Twin and early Mount Kimbie.

Northerner
I Am On Your Side

Northerner's debut album The Ridings was a deep journey through the back rods of sparkling Vini Reilly-esque guitar compositions. On I Am Your Side he sprinkles samples, lo-fi house and funk sounds liberally with the guitar taking a back seat but still audible through the crackle. For those who miss the Durutti Column, then Northerner has the same playful ideas about cross genre exploration.   

Peptalk
Islet

With a history of playing with arty types such as Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono and Xiu Xiu you could think that Peptalk would be some kind of noise/art collective. Instead they draw on their love of exotica, dub, electronica and in particular the Bladerunner soundtrack to create their own world of highly original yet highly accessible becalmed soundscapes. 'Islet' is their debut album and will appeal to fans of artists as disparate as Mum, The Slits and Ryuichi Sakamoto. 

The Big Eyes Family Players
'Oh!'

Following a series of albums veering from instrumental soundtrack work to folk songs in collaboration with the likes of James Yorkston and Adrian Crowley, the Big Eyes Family players are set to release their first album of new material in over six years. 'Oh!' is a lush and melancholic take on the type of space age batchelor pad pop previously peddled by the likes of Broadcast and United States of America. They don't veer too far from their folky roots though with a lilting cover of Lal Waterson's 'Song For Thirza an album highlight. Sharron Kraus and Aby Vulliamy (Trembling Bells/Aidan Moffat) guest.

The Green Kingdom
Prismatic

The Green Kingdom has released some wonderful albums most notably his North Wind and the Sun record on Lost Tribe Sound. Prismatic was an earlier effort which blended a micro-glitch style with haunting neo-classical in the fashion of Harold Budd. A Graphic Designer by trade, his music has a similar kind of attention to detail to create small world soundscapes.
