    Sontag Shogun + Moskitoo – The Things We Let Fall Apart / The Thunderswan

    Pre-order: release date 15.11.17... 'An utterly affectionate and adorable aural apparition, ‘the things we let fall apart’ emerging frosted and fragile, delicately sculptured in thawing ice tones, the symphonics delicately shy eyed and whispered are breathlessly beguiled by a graceful neo classical hush, the effect really is entrancing as it is teasingly brief, sitting somewhere between a very youthful Mum and Smile Down Upon Us. ‘thunderswan’ over on the flip is expressed with the kind of poise and musical poetry that shimmers and twinkles to those early post YMO outings from Ryuichi Sakamoto, its minimal toning sweetly gathering to blossom into caressing cinematic crushes dappled in surrendering sepia hazes, a most exquisite and rarefied thing of bewitching beauty.' - The Sunday Experience (Mark Losing Today)

    Ghost and Tape – Vár

    Heine Christensen (the man behind the ‘ghost and tape’ moniker) and I have been friends for a number of years now, and I’ve been a fan ever since I discovered his first self-titled release for Akira Kosemura’s superb Schole label quite randomly in a record store in Tokyo while admiring the artwork. I ended up buying this based on the art alone, and immediately went back the next day to buy the only other album I could find by him, ‘Home’. The music of ghost and tape is deeply intricate, and so careful is he in the work he does, this marks only his fourth studio album since his debut back in 2010. I’ve always admired people who take their time with their music for they appreciate the finer details and seem to understand music as a timeless quantity. This is a sadly rare quality now as things come and go, but in line with Home Normal’s ethos is a belief that truly lasting music must in its very nature have a certain timelessness that transcends whatever maybe ‘in’ at a particular moment in time.

    Steven Kemner – Gradation Movements

    ,
    You can’t predict the weather. Sometimes, life throws something at you. When it does – not if but when - hopes and expectations lie like shattered spokes. Is it fate, destiny, or circumstance? No one knows, but paths can change when there’s a sudden shift in the weather, and something that once seemed so sure and stable starts to become the opposite: uncertain and unfair. Promises peter out as a drop of rain appears. You have to stop and change course. A natural disaster plunges normality into desolation, and the same is true of our longed-for futures which so often disappear into the ether. Disappointment ensures: inclement weather. You can’t prepare for it; the hurricane warning arrived too late. Steven Kemner recently went through such a change: “I needed to move away from everything that I loved to a place I had no desire to go. This change complicated music, life and a sense of belonging”. - Steven Kemner Like the changing of the weather, ironclad clouds can appear from out of nowhere, eclipsing the sun with blackened totality, and the deep, roiling textures within the music of Gradation Movements are full of rain and turmoil, of leaving and moving on. The slow swells and hard-fought movements are indicative of clouded spells which obdurately block out the blue hope of the sky like a cruel shield. Coated in sleek silver, the notes shadow the steps of the people below. Rainy season stalks the soul; it doesn’t seem to matter where the notes walk, because the cloud always follows, indiscriminate with its downpours of rain and its trident spears of lightning. Rainfall is needed in order to grow, and that includes us. The rainy spells can make us stronger, helping us to rise up in troubling times…but too much of it, and we drown. The cirrus patterns and the cycling of the wind may be hard to understand – we may never understand – but they still have a purpose. The purpose may seem obscure, but it’s there. There’s a strong energy at work within them, and troubled times often reveal things that, in hindsight, we later come to appreciate. When sunlight fails, the music’s tones lie hidden in a shroud of slow mist. The clouds don’t always disperse. You can’t predict the future - you just have to roll with it until you finally come to terms with the strange weather.

    Bruno Sanfilippo – Lost & Found

    Lost & Found is the latest album from Sanfilippo. The artist takes four songs that were once buried and lost in other collections, curating them together to create a new sound and feel. This reimagination allows the listener to discover each piece, as if for the first time. The songs have the power to pull memories from us, of either real or imagined experience and the ethereal sounds are, at once, familiar and an exploration. This transformation invites the listener to experience Lost & Found as an act of losing and finding something again.

    Max Ananyev – The Way to the Ocean

    "I wanted the music to immediately immerse the listener in a new state, but without relying on all the usual techniques composers often make use of in the ambient acoustic genre,” says Max. “In the measured style of my playing, I’ve tried to put across the core idea of the ambient genre – a change in the listener’s state, the transition from thought to contemplation and the perception of time.” "Max Ananyev keeps things to the essentials on the subdued intimate moods of “The Way to the Ocean”. Arrangements possess a meditative quality to them ... The usage of silence further adds to the appeal of the album..." – Beach Sloth

    Adrian Lane – Playing With Ghosts

    On his album "Playing With Ghosts", Adrian Lane uses 100-year-old cylinder recordings as the starting point for new compositions – chopping them up, reordering them and playing along to build up a series of completely new compositions. “I’ve always liked the idea of collage and often include this in my visual art,” says Adrian. “So I wanted to do something that incorporated this approach in my music.”

    Ales Tsurko – Microscale

    Created in real-time from random Wikipedia articles, "microscale" is a web-based, generative album. Each Wikipedia article functioning as a step sequencer – where the letters are the sequencer steps and the track titles are regular expressions that switch the steps on and off. The web version is generated in real-time and is also hackable – this means that the regular expressions, samples, tempo and other parameters can be edited or replaced – enabling "microscale" to be used as an instrument and sequencer for the listener’s own music.

    Morgen Wurde – Assassinous Act (Deluxe Version)

    The absurdly appropriate deluxe version is composed of an actual “crime kit”…each of which comes contained in a zippered, textile evidence bag, and is hung and labeled with a hand distressed and numbered toe tag. Every bag contains all that you should need to figure out the parameters of this crime! The actual potential murder weapon in the form of an antique ice pick w/bullet attached (not live ammo), a vintage mug shot and fingerprint card, a copy of an antique fingerprinting magazine, a hand typed out and repurposed evidence envelope with factory pressed “soundtrack” disc inside it, a hand modified blood spatter test card, a mysterious vintage coat check tag with brass key attached, (what’s in the locker?), and other evidentiary objects of interest to anyone trying to figure this crime out! Put this evocative soundtrack on while studying the objects at hand, and see if you can solve this whodunnit!
