Ships in 7 days**Unseen Worlds follow a hugely appreciated reissue of Laurie Spiegel's 'The Expanding World' with this delightful slice of the 1979-81 avant-garde, rescued from private-press cassette. Amazing songs meditating on American daytime TV set to luscious Buchla synth arrangements. RIYL Robert Ashley, Julia Holter or Pinkcourtesyphone** "Daytime Viewing (1979-80) is an extended narrative song, based on a casual analysis of daytime television drama and the audience phenomena such programming addresses. The piece explores the use of fantasy as a survival mechanism against l… Read more
Ships in 7 daysLast heard by us on the nutty 'Quadrant EP', Splurt follows production duties for Merky Ace with this heavy trio of instrumentals. Suitably road-rugged and gut-punching production values make for a convincing solo debut proper, from the 808 bass, shredded samples and knuckled crack of 'J3' to the stone cold dancefloor murder, 'Lamped' and a synth'd-out, heat seeking 'Ethnic' madness.
Ships in 7 daysTheo Parrish selects and sequences twelve beautiful Black Jazz Records classics at the behest of Japan's Snow Dog Records - featuring music by Doug Carn, The Awakening, Calvin Keys, Rudolph Jonson, among others. Following in the footsteps of Gilles Peterson and DJ Mitsu The Beats, Theo was sent a package of ten LPs drawn from the Oakland, CA label's small but perfectly formed catalogue between 1971-1976 when it existed to represent a "new and fresh alternative to traditional jazz, embodying the spirit of the black/urban awakening of the civil rights period." As to be expected Theo t… Read more
Ships in 7 daysLee Gamble and Marcel Dettmann rewire highlights of Cosmin TRG's 'Gordian' album with excellent results. Clipping the heels of his Special Request inversion, Lee Gamble reprograms 'Noise Code' to a ghosted warehouse sound, banging dry kicks and hi-hats through hissing dust clouds whilst steppin' bass and bursts of bruk drums trick the torque for shadow ravers. If you've ever fantasised about dancing by yourself in an empty warehouse with 12 foot stacks, this would be a perfect soundtrack. Similarly, Marcel Dettmann hears the meta-… Read more
Ships in 7 daysAnother provocatively original and completely schizophrenic release from this maverick label, Maja Ratkje's solo debut (she's a member of freeform punk anarchists Spunk) is yet another perfect example of just how fiercely uncompromising Rune Grammofon really is. But how to describe this music? Maja Ratkje is the female equivalent to Mike Patton - a freestyling, uninhibited, logic-defying one woman music making organism that sings with the angelic harmony of Bjork at one moment and squeals like a posessed pig the next. Her vocal recordings have been dismantled, obliterated and re-assembled with the … Read more
Ships in 7 daysThe first volume in Sublime Frequencies' series of 'Molam' releases took us on a journey through a lesser heard area of Thai music, a kind of country folk music from the rural northeast of Thailand which centres primarily on male and female singers (Molam literally means 'master singer') and the khaen (a bamboo mouth organ) and phin (a lute-like instrument). Here we see the style diversify as it hits the 1970s and 1980s and introduces the sound of synthesizers, drum machines and electric guitars into the mix to create some truly bizarre fusion of … Read more
Ships in 7 days*Deluxe double LP version comes in a heavy duty old-style tip-on gatefold jacket printed on uncoated husky stock. Includes a download code redeemable from the label* "“There’s heaviness. There’s brutality. Then there’s The Body.” - Metal Sucks. ‘Christs, Redeemers’ is the brand new album from the avantmetal duo The Body. It has been said by more than a few intrepid listeners that The Body are the most brutal band on the planet. With ravishing grimness and impenetrable walls of noise, the duo of Chip King and Lee Buford create music that goes beyond what is normally considered harsh and vio… Read more
Ships in 7 days**Nils Frahm presents the truest representation of his feted piano performances with this gorgeous treatment of over two years worth of live performance, recorded on all sorts of devices and then carefully assembled in his Durton Studio and referred to by Frahm as "a collage of field recordings rather than a live album** "Berlin-based contemporary composer Nils Frahm has built a steady reputation for his intimate, poignant piano recordings, yet they so far only showed a fragment of what to expect from a Nils Frahm concert. Frahm’s heart lies in improvisation, in the magic of a moment where, inspire… Read more
Ships in 7 days"Hiraeth is the fourth album from Olan Mill. The work of composer and instrumentalist Alex Smalley and following on from 2012’s much acclaimed 'Home', Olan Mill has been compared to the likes of Richard Skelton, Maurice Jarre and Vangelis. Where 'Home' sought to essay the life-affirming, worldly joy of travel, 'Hiraeth' is a movingly yearning work for a lost sense of place. A Welsh word with no direct translation in English, ‘Hiraeth’ is defined as homesickness for a home to which you cannot return. This is a beautiful meditation on nature irretrievably lost over time and as The Liminal wrote on Ho… Read more
Ships in 7 days**Vinyl contains alternate track listing to download and CD versions, but the bundled download contains all tracks** What have Keysound been putting on their Weetabix recently? Following exemplary issues from Beneath and Mumdance, it's the turn of Logos with his debut album, 'Cold Mission' to leave a big mark on the scene. Isolating the quintessence of Eski Grime, New Age electronics, cinematic sound design and hyper-forward Vaporwave, his definitive album statement can stand up next to Jam City's 'Classical Curves' as one of the UK's finest contributions to the ongoing dialogue between futurist … Read more
Ships in 7 daysThis debut solo LP from Baltimore noise artist Max Eilbacher on Spectrum Spools has all the range, curiosity and intrigue one would hope for. Red Anxiety Tracers is a continuous journey through several absorbing environments built from practically every kind of sonic material. Slowly rotating from ad-hoc percussive sounds to grand cosmic vistas, miniature synth riffs and gouts of distortion, it's a multi-coloured listening experience that draws you in and suggests an artist with much promise.
