Ships in 7 days**Historically important pieces documenting John Cage's early electronic and tape practice** "Although John Cage occasionally worked in large, sophisticated studios - for example, when he composed Fontana Mix in 1958 - his approach to electronic and tape music was often uncomplicated, makeshift, and pragmatic, employing simple tabletop devices: tape machines, phonograph cartridges, contact microphones, record players, portable radios, etc. He developed a soundworld that was utterly new, radical and demanding. It heralded the age of the loudspeaker, mas… Read more
Ships in 7 daysAnother pioneer of UK Grime's recent renaissance, Wen is set to floor all-comers with this stunning debut album for Keysound. Since introducing himself on a split with Epoch and 12" for Badimup in 2012/early 2013, he's coined a striking new sound, rending classic UK dance templates with up-to-the-second sound design and uncanny feel for that late night urban atmosphere best defined by Burial. His edit of early Dizzee Rascal joint 'Strings Ho' which emerged in mid 2013 marked a turning point for this sound where the tempos became slower, the production more elastic, sculpted, and the arrangements tighter, f… Read more
Ships in 7 daysOn his 3rd album proper, Scott Hansen aka Tycho connects greater than ever with his wistful post-rock ambient spirit. 'Awake' is apparently inspired by the energy of Scott's live shows with drummer Rory O'Connor and guitarist Zac Brown, with whom he toured extensively following 2011's well received 'Dive' LP. In an attempt to re-capture that vibe, he took to a cabin in Tahoe last winter to record with Zac Brown, before eventually completing the album in the Santa Cruz hills to realise what, according to Hansen himself, is "in many ways, the first true Tycho record." It's a lush affair, driven towards… Read more
Ships in 7 daysBelgium's Eskimo Recordings present 'The Blue Collection' of moody nu disco, electronica and indie dance, following up 2013's 'Pink Collection' on their colour series. 12 tracks range from the trim disco soul of Freeform Five's 'Leviathan' sporting a great vocal by Roisin Murphy, thru Belgian boogie trance of Julian Sanza's 'The Feeling', to sleazy, low-slung electro from Volta Cab on 'Smoke Some KIll', the bent disco electronics of Michocan's 'The Kingdom Of Heaven Is At Hand', Nteibint's dreamy chugger 'Never Without You' and proggy party vibes of Eelke Kleijn's hang-inflected swinger 'A Tale Of Two Lovers'.
Ships in 7 days"'The Prepared Piano', Hauschka’s first recording using prepared piano, was a solo album of spontaneous improvisations. The sounds he generated changed the course of his musical journey and he’s since used prepared piano in a variety of settings. On 'Ferndorf', pieces composed in honor of his childhood home in Germany, he balanced improvisation with compositions that featured cellists, trombonists and violinists playing his inventive arrangements. The ‘acoustic techno’ of 'Salon des Amateurs' featured drummers Samuli Kosminen (Múm), and Joey Burns and John Convertino (Calexico) and dropped subt… Read more

Ships in 14 days'Syzygy' is the quietly arresting and emotionally engrossing fourth album by singer/songwriter and sound artist Lucrecia Dalt. It arrives on Berlin's impeccably curated Human Ear Music label, which previously issued gems by Julia Holter, who coincidentally appeared on Lucrecia's previous LP, 'Commotus' and with whom she shares a considered and otherworldly grasp of highly visual, cinematically stylised songcraft. She originally hails from Colombia but 'Syzygy' was written in her current home city of Barcelona, mostly very late at night/early morning because of her flat's proximity to the metro lin… Read more
Ships in 14 days**Engrossingly detailed, carefully considered avant-pop from the Human Ear Music director** "For his first major studio album Jason Grier assembles a bewildering musical vocabulary acquired during his tenure as director of Human Ear Music. After working the better part of a decade as a curator moving freely between pop and experimental circles, Grier sought to put his curatorial ethos into a singular artistic statement. Within Unbekannte’s dense 35 minutes, allusions to Michael Pisaro, James Tenney, Alvin Lucier, Pan Sonic, Giancinto Scelsi, Phill Niblock, Jodeci, Woo, etc, are deployed in a spr… Read more
Ships in 14 days**Debut album from a true English eccentric** "“England my England / You flickering island of endlessness upon endlessness / A cold mist of your fibrous trolleys stifles the sun/ and the arrow aimed at your heart fidgets with smoky spasms” Dolly (sometimes known as David Yates) is a Berkshire-based spoken-word artist, poet, events curator, radio playwright and belongs in the lineage of British surrealists. Antimacassar’s twisted insights were created via a process of cut-ups, automatic writing, and dream diaries channelling the skewed atmospherics of such luminaries as David Gascoyne and Rolan… Read more
