Cat. Number: BLACKEST043

**Includes free download code** "Blackest Ever Black presents Fooling Around, a new E.P. from David West’s Rat Columns. The title track is nothing short of a modern rock ’n roll classic: co-written by West and Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring et al) it appeared in truncated form on Rat Columns' album Leaf (R.I.P. Society, 2014), but this is the first time that the original, longer, and definitive version has been given the vinyl pressing it so richly deserves. Its combination of void-chasing motorik, moody jangle, West’s plaintive vocal delivery and Young’s space… Read more

Teamed with guest spots from The Sight Below, Outerbridge, and Shigeto, it unfurls a mind-drifting narrative framed between time-stopping ambient pieces such as 'Cast in Lemon & Sand'. 'Holographic Lodge' or 'Artificial Foliage', and the gently insistent, padded techno momentum of 'Sunken Living Area' or 'Perfume Catalogue', whilst the likes of 'Personal Kiosk' with The Sight Below, or 'Warm Air E… Read more

It is aimed to create a calm, relaxed and meditative mood associated with alpha brain waves.’ Part outsider electronic album; part physiological experiment; part work of art; this is not your average new age record.

Her uncanny ear for evocative production and gorgeous vocal harmonies serves her well on her new album Glider. Throughout the album, the rich dreamlike atmospheres she creates hint at a darkness looming on the horizon, while the singularity of her ethereal voice always seems to linger long after the music has stopped.

This record in particular was a private pressing released back in 1982 and owned by a select few punters who quite clearly did their research. In recent years the record's reputation has spread, with rumours circulating that it was a transcendent blend of Terry Riley, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Popul Vuh and early Kraftwerk - but finding it was about as easy as looking for a connection between Wolf Eyes and The Spice Girls. Then, without fanfare,… Read more

MAJA S.K. RATKJE / JON WESSELTOFT / CAMILLE NORMENT / PER GISLE GALAEN - Celadon, Important Records
"A record of slowly evolving beauty that gradually unravels its meditative design. Recorded in Norwegian sculptor and painter Emanuel Vigeland' s (1875 -1948) mausoleum in Oslo in 2013. A recording space that is famous for its acoustics and its long and full-sounding reverb. These three tracks utilize both the delicacy and the power of acoustic instruments and human voice in relation to the unique recording space. This is a record that is otherworldly and eerie but also with a great primal expressive force. Performed by four artists from different backgrounds coming together to create this singular set of music."
