**Deluxe Trifold 2CD digicase exploring the largely unknown work of Else Marie Pade - a true pioneer of electronic music and musique concrète** Wow this is a stunner. Else Marie Pade's 'Electronic Works 1958-1995' is a truly precious survey of a lone, pioneering voice in electronic music. Born in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1924, Else created the first piece of electronic music played on Danish radio, 'Syv Cirkler (Seven Circles)', marking the early development of an (up until now) largely hidden body of work inspired by her experiences while interred at a Nazi prison camp as a teen… Read more

JOHN BELTRAN / VARIOUS

John Beltran Presents: Music for Machines

Delsin Records

Format_dot_cdCD // £11.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: DSR/D1-CD1

One of Detroit techno's most sublime associates, John Beltran corrals 18 mellow, romantic ambient pieces by himself and others. It's very '90s chill-out album for the most (just the name Mick Chillage screams valerian tea), but with some nice contributions coming from Sons of Melancholia in the smudged slug of 'For Val' and Beltran himself with the sweeping, GAS-like strings of 'Music For Machines'.

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: DR008

Dramatic Records present an expansive sweep of 'Devotional Music For Invisible Cities' created and collated by anonymous devotees over the last two years. While the title may suggests a play on Rashad Becker's 'Traditional Music for Notional Species', the music tends towards a more widescreen, cinematic appeal in the house style of Dramatic Music's diverse yet deeply connected releases by Rasmus Folk, Endless House Foundation, Sebastian Palomar etc. The label also make justified comparisons from "Michael Nyman to Demdike Stare, Ghostbox to Angelo Badalamenti… perhaps even… Read more

The Periodic Table

The Bunker New York

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: BK010CD

David Moufang aka Move D reprises his celebrated Reagenz duo with Jonah Sharp aka Space Time Continuum for The Bunker New York, five years since their Workshop album and two decades on from their seminal, eponymous debut LP on Source. A live recording conflation of correlating ideas from jazz, house, and ambient electronica, 'The Periodic Table' plays-through six extended meditations effortlessly, imperceptibly segueing between effervescent machine rhythms, dub house momentum and fractured jazz abstraction over the course of 77 minutes of psychedelic, sensuous hardware experimentation. RIYL Marco Shuttle, Voices From The Lake, Studio Pankow, Juju & Jordash.

Cat. Number: NOMU107CD

Si 'Noodles' Begg drops his much-touted brand new long player on Novamute, and a massive mixup of styles it is too. Opening with 'Body' (featuring DJ Rush) we arrive straight in with the staggered beats and buffered acid that get cut to pieces in a 2 step/breaks stylee, mad samples and DJ Rush's vocals all combine while the bassline creeps from deep down to a raging wobble that will shake the bassbins. 'Move Up' is one of the best tracks on board, featuring the MC's from New Flesh For Old (Big Dada) its a digital jump up hip hop number of the highest order. Digital beats and stabbing basslines all… Read more

Cat. Number: REWIGCD21

First released way-back-when in 1997, 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea' is receiving a re-release thanks to the chatty praise people like the Arcade Fire and Boom Bip have been gobbing their way. With a sound that has seemingly influenced the previous of those champions far more acutely than the latter, Neutral Milk Hotel is full of bombastic indie rock which belies there connections to the Georgia-based Elephant 6 collective (Apples in Stereo/Olivia Tremor Control etc.). At times sounding like a collaboration between They Might Be Giants and The Smashing Pumpkins (make of… Read more

LICHENS - The Psychic Nature Of Being, Kranky
As Jack White once gurned; "I know I've said it once, but it bears repeating", a phrase that applies to the superlative nature of the Kranky imprint. They just keep getting better! The latest hunk of gold to spill from their vault is the subterranean album 'The Psychic Nature of Being' from Lichens, otherwise known as TV On The Radio and 90 Day Men's Robert Lowe. Borrowing heavily from drone (in terms of structure at least), 'The Psychic Nature of Being' opens with a flood of windswept noise on the truly haunting 'Kirilian Auras', wherein Lowe ferments an overcast soundscape of gr… Read more

I suppose you have to hand it to Franz Ferdinand; love ‘em or hate ‘em, they have in a very short space of time re-popularised a sound which for all intents and purposes had been lost in the u-bend of underground music. Scottish post-punk as produced by bands such as Orange Juice and Josef K never really had the same shot at greatness as maybe Joy Division et al, but now we’re seeing re-issues all over the place, and at the request of Alex Kapranos and the lads, Domino have now put together this epic retrospective of Josef K’s career. The Edinburgh-based band were short lived, only releasing two albu… Read more

**Now available on CD** Sa-Ra have been promising an album like this for years and they've finally pulled it out of the bag as 'The Hollywood Recordings' is finally a match of production skill and sick collaborative talent. We've got Pharaohe Monch, Dilla (RIP), Erykah Badu, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Ty and more all popping up (some out of almost retirement) to add their pizzazz to this solid collection of work. Sa-Ra's skill is in their production which seems to embody that glorious early Dilla sound, you know the later era Tribe material all the way up to Slum Village and J88, choppy bassline… Read more

Well here's something a bit special. Pride is actually the third album by one-man-band Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck), and far-removed from any run-of-the-mill approach to the singer-songwriter format, this is a record filled with multitracked atmosphere, a wealth of vocal texture and harmony. The music here achieves a bewitching, ethereal sound without Houck having to strive for it in an overt, Grouper-like fashion. This wraith-ish quality is what distinguishes Phosphorescent from any contemporaries: you can hear every creaking floorboard on 'Be Dark Night', every gesture by Houck's multitrack… Read more

The Bug finally steps it up proper with his first full length player since his 'Pressure' set laid down the industro-dub gauntlet with a fair clanging smack some 5 years back. In that time we've seen The Bug become a linchpin of the South London Bass scene with unruly rave smashers released on Hyperdub, Soul Jazz and Tigerbeat6 directing us to the future sound of dubstep, bashment and proper heavy bass musics. 'London Zoo' corrals a guest vocalist lineup featuring some of the finest ragga soundsystem toasters London and JA has to offer, with everyone from longtime collaborator Warrior Queen, to the … Read more
