    Limited Edition of 250 copies. Heavyweight black vinyl. Printed inner sleeves and free digital download. “Grawl!x’ debut album is a misty dream of melancholic shoegazing and rich soundscapes of compelling tunes. A mixture that ends up as a mature and perfectly executed album which is rounded off with hazy, distant vocals that guide you from the fragile beginning of “Good Grief” to the trembling and moving climax towards the end. There’s a lot to discover in the rich and detailed arrangements of the songs, but even the sparse parts on the album are anxious to please – and they do …

  • Das Sombreros: The Lamp (Vinyl)

    Das Sombreros: The...

    Das Sombreros – to rhyme with ‘hair loss’ rather than ‘pharaohs’ – is Pedro Wong and Klaus Patel. The pseudonymous duo develop ‘paranoiac collages’ that layer found and treated sounds with nonsensical, misheard phrases and fleeting moments of musicality. The results can be hallucinatory, sinister, erotic and hilarious – sometimes all at once. Despite the ambient washes that permeate the nine tracks that constitute The Lamp, the music of Das Sombreros could never be consigned to the background. It demands to be listened to, not just heard. However, as with all the best experimental music, the work the listener is …

Available on vinyl (180gr, gatefold sleeve incl. download code) for the first time ever! Steve Reich (born 1936) is undoubtedly one of the key figures in 20th century contemporary music and along with Terry Riley or Philip Glass one of the founding fathers of so-called minimal music. With classics like “Music For 18 Musicians”, “Drumming” or “Different Trains” the American composer proved himself one of “a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to …

    The soft ensemble is a three piece musical project. It all started early 2014 when L.J.Wegrzyn and G. Bojanek made some music together for a release that never happened. The recordings were collecting dust for a couple of months when they joined up with F.Appel and decided to make some additional sessions. The final result is one long piece of music containing mainly tuning forks, field recordings, found sounds and some guitars. The soft ensemble is an open project which means the line-up could change, grow bigger or smaller or… it doesn’t have to change at all. The current line-up …

  • Jeremy Young: Chants Beneath The Bed Of The Furnace Brook (Tape)

    Jeremy Young: Chan...

    Inspired by the stream that flows through my parents’ town in upstate New York, this piece was written as a descriptive reflection of movement and stillness. I have walked along the banks of this frozen brook in Winter, witnessed its healthy rushing energy in Autumn and savored its pacifying calm in green Spring. Its name suggests imagery of both heat and coolness, and I wanted this to be represented in the mixing. The solemn stillness of the single icey tone and jagged high frequency shards of feedback balance out through Greg’s impressive mastering which seems to have run through the …

  • James Vella: Devourings (Book)

    James Vella: Devou...

    The shortest tale can leave the longest impression. Devourings collects a variety of stories – each its own piece but bound to the next by a broader, unifying theme: being enveloped, devoured, by a moment, an encounter, a political situation, an emotion – which connect with absolute potency. Be they over a handful of paragraphs or a spread of pages, these short – and shorter – stories linger with a palpable resonance. Devourings travels to many destinations, encompassing several scenarios and introducing myriad protagonists – and, frequently, antagonists. ‘Esthers’ follows a snaking murder plot set in 1940s Argentina; the malevolent …

    “There was a tradition in this parish that on All-Hallows’ Eve a Spirit announced from the altar the names of those who were doomed to die in the coming year. The Spirit was locally called Angelystor.” – Elias Owen, 1887 Estimated at 4,000 to 5,000 years old, the ancient yew in the churchyard of St. Digain, Llangernyw may be oldest living thing in the British Isles. It is strangely apt that such a long lived tree – immortal by comparison to our own lifespans – should grow next to a church reputed to be haunted by an ‘angel of death’, …

  • Atay Ilgun: Enuma Elis (Book)

    Atay Ilgun: Enuma ...

    Also spelled as ‘Enuma Elish’, Enûma Eliš is the Babylonian creation mythos named after its opening words (incipit) which means ‘when on high’. It’s about thousand lines recorded in Old Babylonian on seven clay tablets. Here on this chapbook, the term ‘when on high’ is re-worked as poems about life, creation, death and eternity. Following a vague sequence, it starts covering meditations on flowers, stars, life and the idea of most absolute beginning and ending, but till the end poem itself finds remedies in the everlasting harmony of incarnation and fragments which has no beginning or ending. Even in smallest …

    Aidan Baker: Passi...

    It all starts from a famous maxim of uncertain authorship – Writing about music is like dancing about architecture – and from a trope that is also a neurological phenomenon – synesthesia, the description or perception of one kind of sensation in terms of another. Smelling words, seeing sounds, hearing colours. Aidan Baker deliberately and skillfully plays with such figures, applying them not only to sensations but also to artistic techniques. The poems in this collection are about artworks that use other media than words – paintings, films and songs by a selection of such artists as Man Ray, Wim …

Origamibiro – Shakkei (CD)

Shakkei sees Origamibiro’s music expand into new directions. This album also marks a significant point in their evolution as Origamibiro becomes a full blown audio-visual collective.

Originally a solo project for Tom Hill, Origamibiro began to grow as he enlisted new blood in the form of double bassist and all round multi-instrumentalist, Andy Tytherleigh, andvideo artist, Jim ‘The Joy of Box’ Boxall. They explored ways to expand out from Tom’s studio recordings into full blown live audio-visual performances and in the process found that their ideas and approaches were becoming closely intertwined.

The trio took time out to perform live and experiment with how this kind of music and visuals could be generated and performed live. 2009 saw them playing places like Paris, Rennes, London, Nottingham, The Big Chill Festival, Summer Sundae and The Dublin Fringe Festival, where they gained an award nomination for best production.

Through their studio experiments and live performances, Origamibiro have strived to produce music and images that are beautiful, generative and organic. They have fused their respective backgrounds together: bringing an intricate and diverse selection of instruments, elements of expanded cinema, soundtrack music, found objects and unorthodox devices.

“Shakkei” feels like a significant record. This is not just a testament to its scope, which as already painted here is both grand and vivid, but also in its approach to recorded works. The result is both a listening pleasure and an exercise for those who choose to engage with it. One hopes this will be a significant number, as “Shakkei” is the kind of music that should be enjoyed and appreciated by many. – Fluid Radio
