GROUPER - Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill (Kranky Edition), Kranky
*Brand new edition of Grouperʼs breakthrough 2008 album which has been out of print on all physical formats for the last few years* Here's what we had to say about the album when it first came out on Type 5 years ago: "With the label's hiatus well and truly over, Type Records follows up Peter Broderick's amazing 'Float' with a brand new album of midnight Shoegazer classics from Portland's Liz Harris - and it really is one of the most special albums you'll hear this year. While the filtered, tape-fuelled obfuscation of her signature sound remains, Dragging A Dead … Read more

Following a series of impossible-to-obtain releases for her own Yellowelectric imprint and a CD compilation of her gorgeous 'A I A' set, Liz Harris seems to have settled with Kranky who are re-releasing her classic Type album 'Dragging a Dead Deer..' and this new album of previously unreleased material drawn from the same period: 'The Man Who Died In His Boat'. It's not so hard to believe but we'll say this straight away - the material on this new set is just jaw-dropping, a worthy companion piece to 'Dragging a Dead Deer' - once again finding Harris delivering material edging e… Read more

Reissue of Drexciya's first album proper and a milestone for Detroit and electronic music in general. It was first released in 1999 and has since been hailed as one of the enigma's most crucial missives. This vinyl version is trimmed down from the CD to contain 13 tracks including the killer 'Funk Release Valve' and 'Andrean Sand Dunes', among others. To put it simply, and without overstatement: this is one of the finest electronic albums ever made.

*First time this classic Tim Hecker album has been available on vinyl* Incredibly rich, sumptuous album from Tim Hecker, layering his particular blend of organic ambience with slivers of piano, found sounds and the quiet hum of abandoned machinery. Playing counterpart to the processed acoustic transmissions of Fennesz, Hecker takes a much darker route, only offering relief from the mass of textures he concocts with deep buried remnants of melody and light. As a follow-up to Mille Plateaux's sublime "Radio Amor", "Mirages" is an even more majestic album, striding with a confident heaviness further out into the wilderness, deep into the night.

**Deluxe Triple gatefold, printed inners.

Culled from his legendary trove of recordings, it's apparently "about a fifth" of what he's done in the last 10 years, "…one album out of many possible ones", according to his interview with Rolling Stone. After a couple of whizzes thru, we'd say it lands somewhere between 'Drukqs' and the Analord series of 2005 - no real surprises there, then - leaning heavy on trademark breakbeat funk an… Read more

Perfectly described as "electronic blues" by the label, the spindly guitar lines, harmonica, martial snares and maracas imbue it with an underlying western quality, while the Yamaha DX7 and Oberheim SEM-4 synthlines give that inimitably glossy and evocative '80s darkness also chiming with the output of Ike Yard's Michael Diekmann.
