Sleepwalkers In A Cold Circus

Line

Format_dot_cdCD // £8.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: LINE070

*Shadowy electro-acoustic dimensions for those who appreciate the darkness of Mika Vainio, Valerio Tricoli, or Main* "On Sleepwalkers in a Cold Circus Belgian sound artist Koenraad Ecker creates a biotope of musical characters that is sober, delicate, complex and vivid, with a restrained intensity, a “cold fire.” The characters discuss, hesitate, fight, pull closer, push back. Through the use of microtonality and recordings of acoustic instruments it is the elusive sound of a somnambulistic travelogue. “I’m searching for ways to create an intricate narrative, switching per… Read more

Cat. Number: ONOFUN2015

**Hand-made, recycled packaging with insert. Edition of 50** Eccentric folk, miniature prog epics and lower case electronica from Leigh's Steve Lyon for Michael Holland's ONO. This is a reissue of Steve's 2007 album, 'From Fun To Fear' with new packaging. It traverses 18 disparate vignettes awash with MIDI keys, drizzly guitar mediations and scrabbling concrète elements laced with moments of Lynchian oddness that only reaffirm our belief that the stranger nooks of England's NW exist in a parallel dimension to Twin Peaks in NW U.S.A.

Cat. Number: EGLO40

Squeaky clean yet greazy boogie disco from Nobuyuki Suzuki for Eglo. The over-funked flex of 'Natural Thing' conjures images of sozzled parents dancing to Bruno Mars; 'Bustin'' does the same on a deft disco-funk downstroke.

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: SP036CD

'Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments' is a beautiful synth music obscurity by a largely unsung hero of the genre, David Borden. Originally released in 1981 on the little-known Red label outta Holland, it has been reclaimed from the safety masters and reissued for your delectation by John Elliott's Spectrum Spools nearly 33 years later. Quite understandably, many heads are suffering synth ennui with the sheer tide of forgettable reissues in circulation right now, but this one is like a sad beacon in swelling seas, radiating the sweetest melodies and harmonic f… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HAPSKL006

Stellar techno-boogie from new and promising name, Creta Kano for Bristol's Happy Skull. A lush and insistent lather of Detroit techno and UK braindance filtered with misty-eyed effect, 'Skyway Motel' yields some of the sweetest 'floor moves of 2015 so far. The title track nails E.R.P.-style emosh electro-funk with tantalising marimba melody and sublime chord progressions on the A-side, while the faded breakbeat beauty, 'False Water' shyly skips and melts away like one of AFX's recovered demos on the B-side next to the collapsed boogie screw of 'Skyway 81'. It's hard to resist kind of these charms.

**Double vinyl reissue of two volumes from MF Doom's acclaimed series - plus bonus 7-inch.** What, Doom's instrumental beat series comes to an end??!!? Maybe this will bring the excitement back after Doom's insatiable attitude to releasing every project he can think of which has no doubt made many of his recent releases a little less than fully essential. Thankfully this thirteen track set finds his instrumental tracks on fire - more recent killers mix with unreleased bombs. By now you know the ingredients in Doom's Special Herbs, they are very tasty indeed. Bid farewell to an inspiring series with this excellent double chapter.

While Shrines was composed remotely between Halifax and Montreal, ‘another eternity’ marks the first time Megan and Corin were able to create a record in the same room. The pair ventured home to the frozen industrial landscapes of their birthplace Edmonton, Alberta to document much of what would become the album.
