*Printed inner sleeve and free download card* "‘Slant Of Light’, the first album by the duo of Mary Lattimore (harp) and Jeff Zeigler (guitar, synthesizer, production) is a completely unique document blending ancient classical traditions with modern improvisation and electronic performance. On their first record as a duo Lattimore and Zeigler emerge completely synergetic, offering up stunning improvisations that are as advanced melodically as they are texturally.

"Full-tilt with tunes, aggro riffs, feedback peals, stoned soul-searching, pop turnarounds and magisterial portraits of the go-nowhere lifestyle in abstract, ‘Weirdon’ is also a new-phase Purling Hiss album, using the songwriting and guitar style of Mike Polizze to come up with a quicksilver sound touched on only briefly on previous records. Replete with handclaps, pounding pianos, tambourines and vocal effects, but steeped in guitar roar, Purling Hiss streamlines up nicely, serving the new songs and directions of ‘Weirdon’ while still slamming down hard on your ears like they like to do.

One of Bristol's most interesting artists returns with an ace, oddly organic 2nd album for Tri Angle. 'Punish Honey' cements Vessel's unique position in modern electronica, not least as the first artist bestowed the honour of a 2nd full length on Tri Angle, but also due to his kink for a queered, oxidised alloy of organic and electronic tone, texture and timbre. In it, he uses electro-acoustic/concrète techniques and process to embody a unique voice and character, rather than towards any academic purposes. Employing sheet metal as percussion and sawn-off bicycles as flutes, he arrives at a roili… Read more

The 'Sulu Sekou' version is a beautifully gauzy mesh of swirling pipes and glinting groove anchored by blooming, padded subs to tread a mystic path somewhere between Hassell and Shackleton.

It’s title and the eponymous opening track existed before a single note of 2010’s Cerulean had been recorded.

Manni's 'Voluptuous Surrender' cuts loose on the B-side with spikier drums and pinging, acidic synth delays, which Brooklyn's Shawn O'Sullivan duly carves up as a twitchy, wild-eyed industrial swinger.
