Ships in 7 days"In preparation for his collaboration with Hans-Joachim Roedelius two years ago ("Selected Studies Vol. 1") British singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole recorded plenty of electronic music that hasn't been released yet. "1D" is a collection of the best pieces of this "unused" music. None of the pieces involves the use of a piano keyboard or a computer, except to record it. Some modulations were executed by hand. Most were generated by programmed sequencers and logic. Each piece is a self contained electronic circuit."
Ships in 7 daysPortland's Liz Harris (Grouper), Scott Simmons and Jed Bindeman (Eternal Tapestry) clear the pop air with a brace of raw, blown-out fuzz-pop paeans under the Helen mantle. After debuting the Helen sound with a 7" on Yellow Electric in 2013, they rustle up an eleven track album nodding as much to early Creation Records as much as Flying Nun's '80s Kiwi distorto-pop thistles and reverb-drenched '60s garage. As you might expect from any project fronted by Liz Harris, it's an emotionally wrought and cathartic sound but, unlike almost anything else she's involved with, it's got a more direct pep a… Read more
Ships in 7 days"It’s been three years since Advance Base’s debut album, A Shut-In’s Prayer, made #19 on MOJO Magazine's Best Albums of 2012 list. Since then, singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Owen Ashworth has published a book of drawings, made beats for Chicago rapper Serengeti, recorded the debut single by psych-folk troubadour Julie Byrne, paid tribute to gospel & outsider music legend Washington Phillips (see 2013’s The World Is In A Bad Fix Everywhere EP), contributed electric piano & co-writing credits to Sun Kil Moon’s critically acclaimed 2014 album, Benji, & produced more than a doz… Read more
Ships in 7 daysWhite Material's Berlin-based co-founder DJ Richard serves a smart debut album of low-slung, shadowy house on Hamburg's Dial imprint. The follow-up to his early WM 12"'s and remixes for Radioslave and Dan Bodan takes inspiration from those odd spaces between nature and manmade landscapes and works quite a few shades darker than the usual Dial sound whilst neatly fitting in with their low-key and mesmerising aesthetic. It's perhaps best considered as a very coherent album suite exploring the more personal, meditative facets of his sound; vacillating night-vision synth strokes with sluggish effective t… Read more
Ships in 7 daysHelena Hauff executes a strong 2nd album of one-take machine workouts ranging from icy, beat-less moments to hi-NRG and darkwave pop with 'Discreet Desires' for Werk Discs/Ninja Tune. Arriving 6 months after her very limited debut, 'A Tape', by contrast this effort is a far more polished and organised affair, but still with the requisite amounta muck under her talons' chipped lacquer. It offers ten tracks, each improvised and recorded at her bedroom studio in Hamburg and tested on the road between her countless international DJ gigs and closer to home at Golden Püdel. In a marked differe… Read more
Ships in 7 days**The ambient pioneer meets the latinate, electronic beats of Gotan Project's Christopher H. Mueller** "The collaboration between Roedelius and Müller arose after they played a series of concerts together in Paris in 2012 where they mainly put on improvised performances based on Roedelius’s “paper” compositions. With Imagori, these two artists have created an album that adds a completely new chapter to their musical oeuvres. It is by no means a typical Christoph H. Müller album – and neither is it quintessential Roedelius music. For Müller, Imagori is a return to his roots as an arranger of … Read more

Ships in 14 daysBlanck Mass corrals a haunting spectra of sounds from Helm, Phil Julian, C Spencer Yeh, Konx Om Pax, and Roll The Dice to provide an alternative score for Bruno Forzani and Héléne Catet's 2013 giallo homage, 'The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears'. Each artist augments the classic atmosphere and feeling of Italian horror cinema soundtracks in their own way, ranging from the throbbing heartbeat of Roll The Dice's 'Portal' thru Helm's expanding trio of tense, lugubrious drone pieces to a concise quartet of C Spencer Yeh pieces as you've rar… Read more
Ships in 14 daysPole returns to the dub matrix with 'Wald', his first new album in eight years. In the meantime, the Berlin-based pioneer has busied himself in collaboration with Roll The Dice and various remix work beside his day job as a mastering engineer at the ~scape facilities. He returns to the fray now via several years of extended walks in the German countryside, forests and mountains - a consistently rich source of inspiration for his fellow, native electronic artists - which opened his mind and prompted him to make a record that closer reflected nature itself. The resulting 'Wald' ('Forest' in German) breaks dow… Read more
