**Pro-duped cassette housed in handmade prints (no two alike). Edition of 55. Includes download code for extended edition with 30 minute additional music** Other Ideas' 2nd cassette is a free-form smudge and grind session between Craig Tattersall (The Remote Viewer, The Boats, Cotton Goods) and Thomas Shrubsole (Jesus On Mars, Sub Loam). Sequestered in Shrubsole's studio circa late 2012/early 2013, the duo strafed between a vast array of vintage analogue synths, reel-to-reel tape recorders and "esoteric sound producing devices" to make a quietly engaging, lower case racket tha… Read more

THOMAS SHRUBSOLE - Early Analogue Selected Works on Tape 2002 - 2004, DISSOLVING
**C40. Housed in hand-numbered, folded print with various decorated inserts. "Art Edition" of 34** Dissolving Records' Thomas Shrubsole - aka Sub Loam, In The Field, Jesus On Mars - presents early, archival recordings, using his birth name for the first name. It's a personal and far-reaching suite of disparate sounds tripping from Decimus-like astral chaos thru vivid synth wormholes to surprising Detroit techno deviations , gamelan-like percussive meditations and extended passages of atonal noise, all free as you like and unhindered by anything but his own wild imagination.

Galaxies

Reckno

Format_dot_stuffCassette // £6.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: REC20

Visceral, lysgeric psych-noise from Street Thunder on his return to Reckno following the 'Bonfire Gecko Hex' tape. In comparison to the sanguine kosmiche of their previous, 'Galaxies' is more expansive, ripping at the edges with incendiary, kaotic noise harmonics in four parts scoping out the cascading tone clusters of 'Meteor Shower' alongside the shoegaze wrench of 'Universe End' and the overheating circuitry of 'Cosmic Residue'. But most impressive is the two-part 20 minute epic, 'Star Collapse / Venusian Naturism' which builds and roils to a deliriously unhinged swarm of bittersweet discord that you could practically swim in.

Cat. Number: REC21

**Edition of 75 x C60 cassettes. Artwork by Jason Kerley** Wonderfully wayward electronic vectors from Yaaard on the brilliant Reckno label. Dubbed by the label, "..an act of hero worship/destruction salvaged from the hard drive of a dead computer, a past thought lost now preserved on magnetic tape", Yaaard's 4th tape for the label revolves 14 pieces veering from blunted groovebox workouts reminding of Dro Carey thru to Ecco Jam-style ambient beatmulch on 'Shook Ones' with Street Thunder, via icy R&B introspection reminding of FKA Twigs in 'Tell Me' featuring Kinlaw, and the blistered shoegaze lurch of 'Infinite Love'.

**Edition of 60** Killer, fugged-up transmission from Entr'acte's latest pick-up, Owen McLean. Working in broken ground between Hospital Productions' Vatican Shadow or Alberich and the decayed urban structures of Actress, 'Ghost Selector' is a tortuous midnight excursion powered by bombed out beats thru crumbling concrète cyberpunk zones and those spaces where malign imaginations run amok.

Stockholm's Frida-Li Lovgren aka Quiltland caters to Astro:dynamics' wide-open agenda with a beuatifully emotional rollercoaster of trance crescendos and new age Scando synth romance. 'Sisto' is Quiltland's debut album and introduction to the wider listening public following low key appearances on Amdiscs and a tour tape split with the excellent Sand Circles. He's in good company on the Astro:dynamics roster, with whom he shares a certain wayward, free-styling sensibility attempting to swerve convention in favour of what feels right and good. The A-side manifests that aesthetic in six pieces ran… Read more

"Got back from a Gnod UK tour this year to discover a cdr entitled Famous Moon King in the Tesla merch box, After some investigation nobody claimed it as theirs and could find no info online or on the grapevine about the Famous Moon King. Spent some time with the music from this cdr and decided that this had to go to tape. Its such a cheeky, pulsating emotive collection of grooves that it would be just downright selfish not to share it with folk. Thank you Famous Moon King who ever you are..."

Astro:dynamics follow up their Alis and Vaghe Stelle releases with a suite of oneiric ambient pop experiments recorded to tape by former Simian, Simon Lord. Employing the unique fidelities of an old Tascam 4-track cassette recorder, Lord Skywave presents nine gauzy sketches of wispy synthlines and multi-tracked vocal harmonies imbued with a certain pastoral English quality and frayed Radiophonic electronics lending themselves to comparisons with everyone from Walls' Alessio Natalizia, Ekoplekz and The Boats.

Astro:dynamics present quite easily the best material we've heard so far from Sabina Plamenova aka Alis yet, a lovely suite of lo-fi dream-pop sketches recorded during downtime around a show in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia. The music stands in stark contrast to her recent dancefloor moves on Don't Be Afraid and her own Opit label, erring closer to the psychedelic dub tropes of Negra Branca's amazing 'NB' LP, but juxtaposing her tender, soulful vocal loops against colder, minimalist ambient techno space where she lets her voice ring out like the plainsong of Julianna Barwick.

FIVE EASY PIECES

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: FEP005T

Striking debut release by London's Midnight Davis, landing on the discerning Five Easy Pieces imprint. 'Aftershocks' is much more melancholic than anything previously on the label, channelling the ghosts of British indie, pop, and rave into dubbed-out and dystopian electronic scapes. The likes of James Blake, Cloud Boat and Holy Other are all apt comparisons for this sound, in as much that they express that unique bedroom spirit, but Midnight really stakes out his own take on that aesthetic with 'Aftershocks', from the dank and isolated '90s Trip-Hop gloom of 'Letting It Flow' to the l… Read more
