THE INWARD CIRCLES (RICHARD SKELTON) - Belated Movements for an Unsanctioned Exhumation August 1st 1984 , CORBEL STONE PRESS
Richard Skelton's beautiful 2nd album as The Inward Circles furthers his fascination with what lies beyond, both sonically and philosophically. Rather than the astral overtones of his last album in this guise, 'Nimrod is Lost in Orion and Osyris in the Doggestarre' (2014), it is intrinsically related to the physical world beneath our feet, and presented as a requiem for the mediaeval bog body discovered at Lindow Moss in Cheshire, N.W. England, in 1984. As we've come to hope for, and expect, from Skelton's music, 'Bela… Read more

Richard Chartier's Line label is at its best with Triac's gorgeous 2nd album of diaphanous drones. 'Days' could be taken as a measure of time, or equally as a pun on the lush effect of their music, presenting a barely-there suite of near-baroque melodic gestures that seem to float in mid-air, as though either moving very slowly or as a midnight mirage conjured by some gauzy mind. Within its seven pieces, ranging from pop-ambient temporality thru ten minute trips, they seem to capture the resonant, lingering after-thoughts of their instruments - Rossano Polidoro (laptop), Marco Seracini (piano, synth), and … Read more

Cat. Number: FABRIC137

The most keenly awaited entry in Fabric's mix series for a while is finally here. It's over a year since Karl 'Regis' O'Connor, Dave 'Function' Sumner, John 'Silent Servant' Mendez and Peter 'Female' Sutton called time on their Sandwell District collective and label, but Function and Regis continue to use the name for their DJ/live incarnation - and it's the sound of that battle-hardened tag-team which is captured on Fabric69, a 30-track rinse-out of high-torque techno broadcast from their bunker in Berlin. The first half of the disc feels like it belongs to Regis: his def… Read more

**After many delays' Brock Van Wey's epic, double disc, 3 hour ambient session is finally released** "It's been nearly 5 years since Brock's highly acclaimed "White Clouds Drift On And On" debuted on Echospace earning a plethora of critical acclaim including many coveted top albums of the year list from RA to The Wire. Brock returns in beautiful form with what he's said to us is his most personal and self defining moment in his fruitful musical career. This album however strikes on a very different chord from the last, rather than find contentment in repeating himself he's sculpted a unique sound sl… Read more

*Ships Friday* The increasingly ubiquitous Huerco S. services Dan Lopatin’s Software imprint with his debut album proper, following that seductive, rep-making trio of EPs on Wicked Bass, Opal Tapes / Boomkat Editions and Future Times. It’s top-drawer stuff, taking the new age ambience and rugged, smoke-choked house rhythms du jour and turning them inside out, opening up new zones of dubwise introspection. ‘Plucked From The Ground, Towards The Sun’ is a 90s Chain Reaction cut inspected through a smeared microscope lens, but it’s the minor key shifts and almost Autechre-ish edits of ‘Quivira’ … Read more

**Reissue of this Chain reaction classic, remastered and cut by Matt Colton** Fluxion's 1999 album for Chain Reaction, 'Vibrant Forms' stands up as one of the label's finest, up there amongst the likes of Porter Ricks' 'Biokinetics' - also reissued by Type - and über-classics from Vainqueur, Vladislav Delay and Substance. It's a masterclass in fluid, groovewise techno reduction and atmospheric rendering which sounds as fresh and alien today as it did 15 years ago. This reissue collects both the 12" and 2x12" released by Chain reaction, plus two bonus tracks, adding up to a beautifully coh… Read more

*Finally Available Again - repress in a double Jewel Case* Andy Stott entered a compelling new phase of evolution on 'Passed Me By', inverting the energy of his Juke and Technoid hardcore excursions into something more brooding and subtly visceral. Folding in a wider palette of influences from Kassem Mosse to Arthur Russell, to Actress and James Ferraro, 'New Ground' opens the set proper and we're dominated by bone crushing bass weight, pinned under relentless waves of subbass whilst shards of hypnagogic exhalations struggle for air in his autoerotic pressure syst… Read more

ENNIO MORRICONE - Morricone High - The Trippier Side Of Morricone, EL RECORDS
"Morricone High' showcases the composer's work for Italian psychedelic and art movies of the late sixties & early seventies. Ennio Morricone's beautiful melodies are decorated by Edda Dell'Orso's spacious wordless vocals; 'Scusi, Facciamo L'Amore?' (with the harmony singers I Cantori Moderni) (about the travails of a Neapolitan gigolo), 'Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene' (sex and crime Italian style) 'Veruschka' (model on a psychedelic trip) and 'La Donna Invisible' (arty Mediterranean love triangle) are all sublime examples of the composer in his p… Read more

*Ships for Sep 15th release date* American artist, composer, essayist, Seth Cluett returns to Line with a patiently glacial follow-up to his acclaimed 'Objects Of Memory' (2011) work. Again, 'Forms of Forgetting' focusses on one of the central themes of his oeuvre, the fidelity and nature of memory, manifest over an extended electro-acoustic studio construction intended for immersed, concentrated listening with the potential to warp our perception of time and space.“It is then no longer oblivion that materiality begets, forgetting by the effacement of traces, but forgetting in terms of… Read more
