  • Pausal: Along the Mantic Spring (Vinyl)

    Pausal: Along the ...

    This is the new full-length LP from Pausal. Layer upon layer of guitar-based ambient with a bit of modern classical worked into the mix. Pausal is a duo from the U.K. consisting of Alex Smalley (Olan Mill) and Simon Bainton.

  • Jerome Longhi: Sonameon (Vinyl maxi single)

    Jerome Longhi: Son...

    It’s ever hard to find some words about a debut. There’s nothing to compare. Yes, of course, there could be thrown in some names, or it could be mentioned that Jerome Longhi grew up in a musical family and learned playing guitar at seven…started his 1st Band as kid and now ownes a production studio. But is it important that way? Maybe the fact, he was just fed up from guitar music. With the thought, that the broom chamber would fit his sound to leave the domestic fields of Rock for a while. Sonameon by Jerome Longhi

    Limited Edition of 350 | Hand Numbered | Clear Vinyl Circular melodies adorned with simple samples and loops. Its charm makes a lot of sense given that Allender plays in film composer Yann Tiersen’s live band – Lars Gotrich NPR Music of heart and humanity, as fresh (and refreshing) as a spring lake. – Textura Robin Allender certainly has prowess on his instrument but I found myself drawn to the more woe-some and winsome tracks that inter-weave amongst the track order, culminating with the prettiest song I have heard in a while.

  • Padang Food Tigers / Lake Mary: Split (7″ vinyl)

    It seems a logical step to follow up Scissor Tail Editions 2012 reissue of Bruce Langhorne’s score to “The Hired Hand” with these two beautifully constructed pieces of music from artists residing on separate sides of the planet. Padang Food Tigers and Chaz Prymek AKA (Lake Mary) both employ similar instrumentations to that of “The Hired Hand” soundtrack. Banjos play the lead role for Padang Food Tigers and Lake Mary as well in building imaginary desolate landscapes. Guitar and piano float in and out. These could easily be heard as companion pieces “Crabbing King Sappling” builds heavy cinematic tension while …

    Red Alphabet in the Snow is a solo album by the extremely prolific but highly talented Richard Youngs. Two 17-minute pieces, in which Youngs layers acoustic guitars, banjo, cifteli, bass guitar, electric lead guitars, electric violin, epinette des vosges, shakers, sitar, swanee whistle, tambourine, triangle, 12-string guitar, ukulele, and his own voice, build up a meandering instrumental, acoustic, and even psychedelic mix.

  • North Side Drive: Snow // Sea // Sky (CD)

    North Side Drive: ...

    Snow // Sea // Sky is an EP by North Side Drive, the moniker of artist Jonathan Pearson, and continues the elements-based theme of his previous two EPs. Using piano and electronics, “Snow” is full of textures, clocking in at over ten minutes, and sets up the rest of the EP beautifully. A fast, staccato piano line slowly builds, with piano chords and electronics, falling into ambient noise; only for the piano line to re-emerge. “Sea” is a much more modern-classical melody, gentle, and leads the way to a more robust “Sky”. The album comes as a pressed CD, in …

    Full length modern classical drone masterpiece from Iranian Siavash Amini. In ‘What Wind Whispered to the Trees’ Amini references characters from Dostoevsky’s ‘The Brothers Karamazov’ and ‘The Devils’. Conveying a sense of loss and of longing from opening track, the album unravels chapter by chapter holding the listener in a dark, dense and poetic tale, as if translating Dostoevsky into musical form. The raw string melodies, fine tonal auroras and contrasting heavy drones are expanded and deepened by stunning mastering from Lawrence English.

  • Pinkcourtesyphone: A Ravishment of Mirror (CD)

    Los Angeles, a city of mirrors, twinkling lights, noir history, and deep secrets is the new home for Pinkcourtesyphone. This third full album explores Hollywood dreams and deception… meant to be slowly sipped. We all pretend but in Hollywood pretending is its dark sustenance… a plastic organic unity ready to enfold and repackage you. Pinkcourtesyphone is dark but not arch, with a slight hint of humor. Pinkcourtesyphone is amorphous, changing, and slipping in and out of consciousness. Pinkcourtesyphone operates like a syrup-y dream. Pinkcourtesyphone strives to be both elegant and detached. Pinkcourtesyphone remained dormant for a long time. Pinkcourtesyphone is …

    First presented as a durational audio-visual performance presented at Human Resources in Los Angeles (CA), Snowfall explores the hushed stillness and isolation sometimes experienced during a snowstorm. Presented over 6 hours, the audience was allowed to come and go as they please. This afford the viewer a more personal experience with the piece through the dispersion of the audience. Snowfall was constructed using photographs and field recordings collected at the Jentel Artist Residency outside Banner, WY in February 2010. Yann Novak is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Los Angeles. Through the use of sound, light and space, he …

    I Did That Tomorrow is a collection of pieces about initiation and reaction, travel and stillness, simplicity and mutation. The sound world of piano, percussion and electronics, engineered at Will Larsen’s Recliner Studios in Melbourne, shifts through organic, improvisatory, imperfect patterns, playing with the idea of movement in light, space, and liquid, usually resolving – though not necessarily tonally – for a sense of agreement. Tess Said So is the creative partnership of musicians Rasa Daukus and Will Larsen. Adopting a pop sensibility to a classical format, Rasa and Will write and perform all their own material.

    Pascal Savy is a French musician who lives and works in London. He creates organic ambient and drone music as a way to reflect on erosion, transition and decay. He utilizes tones, textures, micro-melodies and noise to explore atmospheres rather than narratives. His work often combines acoustic and electronic sources generated from field-recordings, pick-ups, tape loops, feedback, synthesisers or home made electronics which he transforms into dense and layered motifs. His works have been released on Hibernate, Feedback Loop Label & Twisted Tree Lines. “Adrift is conceived as a sound exploration of a sea area in close proximity of the …

  • Lcoma: Blackbird (Tape)

    Lcoma: Blackbird (...

    Liam Coleman breaks new ground in his second release for Inner Ocean, pushing his dense, exploratory sound to its very limits with ‘Blackbird’ – an extended drone workout that folds traditional acoustic instrumentation into his customary wall-of-sound production. After a day’s field recording in the woods near his home in Leeds, Coleman focused his thinking on the travels of a blackbird and set about capturing that journey in sound. With the palette-widening inclusion of acoustic guitars and found sounds adding a humanistic sheen to his profoundly mechanised soundworld, the resulting 24-minute piece represents a confident step forward in ambition and …

No two alike! “I know people will always assume that I listen to a lot of John Fahey, Robbie Basho, Steffen Basho-Junghans, Nick Drake etc. I do listen to all of this and I do love it but there is so much more to the world of music I inhabit. Some of my favourite composers take folk motifs to make ‘art music’, composers like Béla Bartók and Osvaldo Golijov. It is perhaps their approach rather than their music that influences me most.

    Neapolitan free jazz tornado-hatching is totally my bag and Grizzly Imploded bring the joy in spades; I could listen to this kind of steez all day! This trio is a branch off the Strongly Imploded tree – two of the three members hail from that noisy outfit – and they employ all the latest techniques to melt the faces of their audience. Minimal/maximal guitar skree deftly unloaded like depth charges off the side of a warship. Freely-pummelled drums that bounce off of the floor, on the verge of exploding under the weight of deft arms. Controlled chaos that threatens to …

  • Nathan McLaughlin: Karen Studies (Tape)

    Nathan McLaughlin:...

    On the surface, Karen Dalton may seem like an unlikely source of inspiration for the reel-to-reel experimentalist and recent Upstate New York transplant Nathan McLaughlin. Dalton was an undeniably great interpreter of folk songs whose gritty, whiskey-singed voice could add new layers of emotional depth to virtually any song she took on. McLaughlin, as a solo artist, has predominantly explored expansive, slow-building sound pieces using his beloved Teac 3440 tape machine with subtle manipulations and guitar and synth accompaniment. In places, it’s as though McLaughlin appears to be recreating the worn contours of Dalton’s voice itself. In the end, when …

Pleq/Spheruleus: Quietus Gradualis (Deluxe Edition)

Packaging just dose not get any more insane or beautiful than this!!!

“Quietus Gradualis’ is a blissful collaborative effort from Pleq (Bartosz Dziadosz) and Spheruleus (Harry Towell). With it’s almost folky and melodic background/filling of guitar meanderings and pseudo stringed ambiance, and a crackly and slightly crunchy and somewhat droney top coating, this is one taste treat not to be missed!

In an edition of 80 copies, the deluxe “chocolate box” version of this release takes the form of a four tier maze/pinball game. Each box comes with a game spinner and wheels on the green felted top, like some kind of crazy miniature putting green. The 4 sides of the box are wrapped with tape and stamped… Inside the box the sectional chocolate container present in all of the other boxes has been doubled and stacked, with holes in the sides in particular places, and objects placed between them, through which one must navigate the four little stainless steel balls that come with the box. Open your box, drop the 4 balls on the top surface, find your way down the top hole and finally down and through the hole in and out the bottom of the box. Each box also contains two hand printed mini discs on hubs, a completely hand modified insert, dice, tiddly winks pieces and other insanities bound to drive you even crazier than we are now!

She then relocated to Belgium to act in a few short films. “Fire / Failure” is her unique album, recorded around 2000.
