Ships in 7 days‘Ices’ is a celebration of flight, levity and the conviction that you can leave Earth. You take wing in an aeroplane, you go to real places when you dream, you have out-of- body experiences, you get high, you lose yourself in someone else. In Lia’s own words: “This recording session became a two year music and spiritual retreat with my psychic twin brother, Eliot. A private journey during which we abandoned old habits and familiar sounds. We got really geeky and experimented in our studio. We obsessed over sympathetic magic, ‘Ancient Aliens’, and the NBA. We allowed everything we loved to find its way… Read more
Ships in 7 daysThe Black Dice miscreant follows his jaunt onto L.I.E.S. with a typically schizoid return to DFA in 'Ms Pretzel'. Working somewhere between $hit & $hine's lop-sided funk and the burred loops of Harmonious Thelonious, his four tracks investigate heatsick Afro-centric vibes in the slow and low chug of 'Ms Pretzel' as well as noisier, splintered grooves in 'SXIXO', while 'Scum of the Cream' prowls wayward dancefloor zones with a steadier, if still sozzled, momentum, and 'A1EZOK' pushes the tempo up for a manic flurry of stepping drums and queasy, melting loops.
Ships in 7 days"Gayna Florence Perry and Robin Surtees are perhaps best known for their work with cult 80’s band Shiny Two Shiny. Signed to Red Flame Records, they released one mini LP entitled ‘Halfway Across The Rainbow’ and one single ‘Waiting For us’ c/w ‘Ritual Hate’, in 7” and 12” formats. A mixture of bright and breezy synth pop with some darker undercurrents both records made a dent in the indie charts gaining positive reviews in the music press for releases and live appearances and acclaim from John Peel as well as daytime airplay on Radio 1. They also toured Europe and appeared on TV.… Read more
Ships in 7 days"The Ministry Of Wolves are Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten / Crime & The City Solution), Mick Harvey (co- founder of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), Danielle de Picciotto (Crime & The City Solution) and Paul Wallfisch (Botanica / musical director at the Theater Dortmund). ‘Music From Republik der Wölfe’ and ‘Happily Ever After’ are based on the writings of the Brothers Grimm, in particular Anne Sexton’s ‘Transformations’ (1971), the Pulitzer Prize winning poet’s reworking of the Grimm’s fairy tales. In the hands of The Ministry Of Wolves, these morality tales and warnings are as dark as you remember them from childhood"
Ships in 7 daysEsteemed dark ambient pioneer Thomas Köner casts a beautifully sombre solo piano shadow with the 68-minute piece, 'Tiento de las Nieves' for Denovali Records. Whilst he's previously used the piano as an indistinct element within his widescreen scapes, here it's the main focus, sustaining super sparse, plangent notes which radiate out across the soundsphere with longing decay until they fade, freezing and slowly thawing in a sequence of deep blue moments bridged by stratospheric, slowly expanding pads. Once rested to the piece's meter, it's easy to let go and imagine yourself as Fri… Read more
Ships in 7 days"Hailing from New Zealand, haunting dream-pop duo French For Rabbits have been quietly building a reputation around the world for their growing collection of songs clouded in eerie instrumentation and sea-misted lyricism, courtesy of the venerable Lefse Records imprint."
Ships in 7 days*Debut album by esteemed writer and Leonard Cohen biographer Sylvie Simmons produced by Howe Gelb (Giant Sand) and Chris Schultz* "Light In The Attic has an impeccable reputation for uncovering rare and precious albums from the past. Their latest release, _Sylvie_, is haunting and out-of-time—but it is also a brand-new, original debut album, by a singer-writer who has been making music since she was a little girl but just for herself. Like Devendra Banhart says, Sylvie is “a gem of an album, fragile and fearless, direct and poetic, timeless and absolutely beautiful. Like Rosalie Sorrels or Is… Read more
Ships in 7 daysThe results of Spatial's opti-sonic installation, 'Primitives' reinterpreted by the man himself, Broken20's TVO, Bass Clef, and Sculpture. The light-controlled software at the core of the installation generates unique tones which are subsequently re-shaped into hulking UK techno patterns crawling with strange electronic figures in Spatial's own version; the TVO|SPL mix is more freakish, shot thru with piercing oscillations and slow slamming beats; Bass Clef twists it into a quirky robo-boogie; while Sculpture render a dynamic diorama of radiophonic blips and scrambled rhythms.
Ships in 7 daysRodion G.A.'s magnum opus 'Behind The Curtain' offers a further nosey into the colourful archives of Romania's synth-y psych-disco pioneer. Following on from 'The Lost Tapes' and the 'Misiunea Spațială Delta' soundtrack, 'Behind The Curtain' rescues another 14 songs from almost certain obscurity on decaying reel-to-reels at his country cottage in Romania. It's a wonder that they escaped the hands of the notorious Romanian authorities, never-mind the oxidisation process, to still convey a life-affirming and joyous take on electronic music romping from the swaggering pomp … Read more
