Abul Mogard
And We Are Passing Through Silently

Abul Mogard does great stuff with his synthesiser(s), and And We Are Passing Through Silently presents a particular corner of his practice: his elaborate reworkings (to call them ‘remixes’ doesn’t feel quite right) of other people’s tracks. Aisha Devi and Becoming Animal are two of those who get the Mogard treatment, and the results are lush. Out on Houndstooth.

Current 93
Invocations Of Almost

The press release suggests Current 93 have dreamt their latest album, Invocations Of Almost, but I can assure you that it exists in the physical world too. The music here is made to accompany David Tibet’s art exhibition. In a typical Current 93-style move the CD version contains 59 minutes of music as Tibet turns 59 years old. The vinyl edition is slightly shorter in duration.

Davy Kehoe
The Pilot

Davy Kehoe’s 2017 release Short Passing Game was a dance release made with the heart of Neu! or Suicide - though judging by the amped-up speed this was a heart undergoing rapid palpitations. The speed on The Pilot is not quite as physically alarming, but the synergy of styles is just as potent, resembling a stretched out band jam as much as any electronic release.

Domenico Crisci
Velvet

Techno that sounds like a collapsing building from Domenico Crisci. I've never heard music that sounds so much like its foundations have been shaken. On Velvet Crisci is not interested in giving you time to warm up, instead going full throttle all the time. Big, dark and distorted. Just how I like it. On Black Opal.

Drahla
Useless Coordinates

Long-awaited debut album from Leeds’ very own Drahla on Brooklyn indie imprint Captured Tracks. Mixing wiry, raw post-punk with the dark and volatile textures of art-rock and Luciel Brown’s abstract lyrical preoccupations, Useless Coordinates was recorded in short gaps between hard touring throughout 2018.

Earth
Full Upon Her Burning Lips

Dylan Carlson looks older all of a sudden. Mind you, Earth have been putting out records for some 30 years and, to be honest, I’m probably remembering what he looked like from a picture in 1991.

Minimal Violence
InDreams

Massive techno with ridiculous arena synths and squares riding the bass lines. Pretty old school sound that also approaches perhaps even the hardstyle flavor from Minimal Violence. The duo, consisting of Vancouver local heroes Ashlee Luk and Lida P, covers just about every base of the heavy techno spectrum on their debut album InDreams.
