Cat. Number: ZIQ330CD

On this second album, husband-and-wife duo Mike Paradinas (μ-Ziq) and Lara Rix-Martin have honed their craft further and teamed up with French singer Vezelay for some supremely chill rides. The delicate synths and vocal harmonies, both positioned just so, can trace their origins to Paradinas's earlier milieu of 90s electronica, and even further back to 70s and 80s cosmicism, but they also resonate appealingly with contemporary moods in downtempo, such as those of Tory Y Moi or How To Dress Well. A work of calm and carefully engineered beauty.

'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

**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

**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

"Miho Hatori & Yuka Honda formed one of the most beloved and critically-acclaimed bands of the late 90s. Cibo Matto pioneered post-genre freakout, spiking their wild pop songs with rap, funk, Brazilian, African, Latin, jazz, etc. long before the iPod shuffle arrived.

Politken der Frequenz ('Politics of Frequency') draws on concepts from economics and advanced mathematics, including the work of contemporary philosopher Alain Badiou, for a literal sonification of cutting-edge theory and the abstractions of the modern world.

ASMUS TIETCHENS - Der Fünfte Himmel, Bureau B

Ships in 9 days

"Asmus Tietchens is one of the most renowned German artists in the abstract music scene. He began by recording a handful of Residents-influenced synthesizer albums, launching into a peerless mix of stuttering beats and off-kilter harmonies which earned his music the generic tag “pseudo pop”. Der fünfte Himmel reaches back to a time before and after the so-called Zeitzeichen phase, gathering up unwanted or rejected pieces, the ones considered unsuitable or simply left behind."

"Before Asmus Tietchens released four albums on Germany's Sky Records label (home of Cluster, Michael Rother etc.), he recorded "Nachtstücke" (nocturnes) for the french EGG label, produced by Tangerine Dream's Peter Baumann. It was recorded between 1975 to 1978 and features shadowy, ghostly, predominantly solemn synthesizer music, far removed from the oblique synth pop albums of his subsequent Sky Records phase."

**Often deranged but somehow collected Krautrock from Teutonic elders** "In 1996 three old hands of German underground music came together to record nine improvised "one take recordings" without overdubs or corrections: Dieter Moebius (Kluster, Cluster, Harmonia) on synthesizer and electronics, Mani Neumeier (Guru Guru) on drums, and Jürgen Engler (Male, Die Krupps) on guitars. The result: a fascinating electronic world of sonic spectra, cacophony on the one hand, harmony on the other; dark but not murky, outlandish without being weird – an almost magical, ritualistic atmosphere."

After a 17 year hiatus, the successor to 'Other Places' (1996). The result: no repeat performance, instead a clear progression from its predecessor – the ambitious, but never unduly cerebral improvisation of three musical eccentrics."
