Cat. Number: OTR12001

**Trans red wax with fold-over two-sided print in clear poly sleeve - edition of 300 copies with download included** 'Abstraction' continues The Boats' industrial cycle with a remorseless instalment. Quite possibly the most potent of all their releases so far, it finds the usually gentle souls of Andrew Hargreaves and Craig Tattersall revealing what they get up to when no-one is listening -- you'd think they're out bothering fields and folding paper until the candles run out but, oh no, they're actually cranking out thunderous industrial beat-offs and dry stone walls of noise.

Cat. Number: RN118

Carl Michael Von Hausswolff and Martin Rössel posture a heavy techno-rock sound on the penultimate edition of Raster-Noton's Unun series. Effectively bringing the project full circle to Mika Vainio's earlier 'Vandal' EP, the Swedish veterans of avant-garde and pop swagger balls-out with the crushing lurch of 'Leibniz' before tacking to more experimental arrangements with mutant Balearic chug of 'Ramon Llull' and the convulsive croaks and drones of 'Calculus' warranting comparisons with Nick Klein or Emptyset.

Remarkable, processed vocal studies from Rome. 'Sintetizzatrice' is the first time Anna Caragnano & Donato Dozzy have worked together but you'd never tell. Their debut release features Anna's voice as the sole source, whisked, chopped and layered into an astonishing spectrum of styles touching on traditional Italian folk music as well as classical chamber music, kosmische and R&B. In stark contrast with the invasive tones of Florian Hecker's recent vocal studies, Dozzy deigns for a more heavenly form and accessible approach with differently transcendent results.

*Deluxe vinyl edition finally available* Björk comes to terms with the breakdown of a longterm relationship with some help from Arca, The Haxan Cloak, Antony and Spaces. It's arguably her most coherent and focused album since 'Vespertine' (2001), her vocals incredibly raw and emotional - understandably in the light of tragic, personal events - yet controlled with near operatic poise and matched by the waking-dream-like qualities of the production's skewed meter and tendencies toward keening, lushly expressive discord. It must be said that Arca really comes into his own here, expanding upon certain r… Read more

ASC steps correct with the classic 'ardcore-sampling half-stepper, 'Lose Control', while Synth Sense's 'Red Skies' probes fractious, unstable sci-fi dimensions. Sam KDC unleashes one of his darkest missiles with the quasi-speed trudge and cinematic synth arrangement of 'The Messenger', and Method One keeps that vibe rolling with the orientalist futurism of 'Pyre'.

**Edition of 200** The unstoppable Paul Dickow a.k.a. Strategy shapeshifts between dub, techno and the ambient spaces between on 'Pods of Punishment' for Entr'acte. Covering all fidelities between computers, drum machines, FX, radio, synth and samplers, he resolves at a hazily dubwise mid-ground where his musical organisms live out short, strange lives. In particular, Strategy's fixation on radio and science fiction are key to this sound, guiding him to a sort of detached, para-dimensional state that's at once familiar yet alien, alternating recognisable structures of steppers dub with amorphous textural abstraction and samples twoc'ed from the æther. It's a proper trip.
