Ratgrave
Ratgrave

Ratgrave is the new project from Julius Conrad and Max Graef. From squelchy electro-funk to smooth, chilled vibes via some more erratic beats, this album has everything you want for a good night in or out. It was recorded over a three year period in three different locations, although they are keen to point out that they were all on terra firma, and we can only assume that this informed the record’s final outcome. Ludwig L lends additional EFX to the album. LP on Apron.

Kit Grill
Rhythm

Some more nicey-nicey from Kit Grill here. Much like many of the London producer’s previous releases, Rhythm is a collection of melodic synth vignettes that generally err on the happier side of things. There’s a light chillwave flavour to this lot to go with Grill’s standard Vangelis-isms. As you might be able to guess from the title, this one is quite rhythmic by his standards.

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we know and love from our favourite records.

Mike Donovan
How to Get Your Record Played in Shops

San Fran rocker and Sic Alps & Peacers lead singer Mike Donovan is in the mood for dishing out advice on his latest solo outing, How to Get Your Record Played in Shops. He’s often in a gentle, piano-led garage or rock & roll mode for this collection, with a lot of peace and a spot of love to offer. Listen and the title soon makes sense.

Shadows
Particles Of Life

Ok so this is not the sometime Cliff Richard fronted guitar twangers but instead a duo of of Andrew Bowen & Dimitri Ploumpidis who also play hard techno as AnD. Here they explore freeform electronic explorations all smudgy and smeared with detritus. It's bloody ugly but that's what you are here for right?

Byron Westbrook
Confluence Patterns

Umor Rex welcomes experimental ambient electronicist Byron Westbrook to the fold for his third album, following releases with Root Strata and Hands in the Dark. Made with manipulations of tape and electronics, Confluence Patterns is mixed so that sharp contrasts of tone and style occur between the tracks, making continuous listening noticeably different from selective.

Maymind
Illumina

'Illumina' offers up a blend of processed acoustic percussion, drifting keys and loads of ambient textures, paying homage to electronic benchmarks like Global Communication and Biosphere. In referencing the past, Leo Maymind has not forgotten to enlist the present, with contemporary dance rhythms and glitched out drones.

Mikrovolt
I

Mikrovolt opens this synth adventure with a piece of upbeat and shimmering motorik groove full of synth squelches and machine drums. We're taken on a journey through Tangerine Dream, Jarre and Neu! textures, with even some loose links to instrumental synth pop. A dynamic, colourful and bouncy affair.

Kösmonaut
Songs For Healing

Songs For Healing by Kosmonaut aka Patrick Park was inspired by and dedicated to his daughter who was diagnosed with Leukaemia last year. The synth soundscape is undeniably intense but also at times dusted with beautiful flourishes. Park has added tribal elements and noise to his usual brand of Berlin School synth music and progressive electronics. Cassette tape on These Are Not Records.

Preoccupations
Preoccupations

First up we had Women and once that band imploded we got Viet Cong and now we have Preoccupations which is basically the new name for Viet Cong. If last year's previously self-titled record is anything to go by this will be another strand of magical avant rock from the Calgary crew. They specialise in tight and taut compositions with incredible musical interplay that makes you wonder really why anyone else bothers.
