    Ulises Conti – Atlas

    ,
    Atlas collects what could be considered Ulises Conti’s most distinguished recording works throughout his 10-year solo career. The selection reveals a great sound display that generates musical spaces and landscapes of a beauty that is unusual in today’s scene, which stresses the timbral element (piano, French horn, viola, lap steel, etc.) This is only a brief sample from his productions as a musician, because his work also expands on other disciplines such as film, visual arts, dance and theater, as the composer of soundtracks, installations and other sound research projects. He is one of the Argentine composers with the most potential and international projection considering his powerful and inspiring work.

    Cuushe – Butterfly Case

    ,
    “Butterfly Case” is Cuushe’s brand new breath-taking 2nd full length album, coming four years after her beautiful debut “Red Rocket Telepathy” and the subsequent “Girl You Know That I Am Here But The Dream” EP. While Cuushe’s debut album put more focus on field recordings and found sounds, in “Butterfly Case”, you can see her moving graciously from her dreams into reality, expressing herself with delicate analog tape, distorted synths, drum machines, looped guitars and her signature feathery vocals. This wonderful album is co-produced by flau label mastermind aus, with Geskia at the mastering helm. These astonishing new songs allow us see a new vision, an imagination from Cuushe that we’ve never seen before. The balearic guitar-house track “I Love You”, which is one of the most popular tracks from the album, has already been receiving raving reviews from the press both in Japan and overseas, while the ambient-ish R&B take in “Hanabi” is a wonderful reminiscent of Cocteau Twins & early 4AD meet soul music. Cuushe’s uniquely beautiful voice, and the delicately beat-driven music that was masterfully produced in “Butterfly Case”, has undoubtedly unfolded a new exciting dimension in dream pop music. by Tim McGregor & Wei Yuen, mu-nest.

    Ikebana – When You Arrive There

    ,
    Ikebana, in Japanese, is an art of flower arrangement. Unlike conventional flower arrangement, it often focuses on other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, rather than its blooms, and lays emphasis toward the shape, line, form of the arrangement. Ikebana is about minimalism, about beauty in space, and about calmness. And so does the music of flau label’s latest signing, the Japanese female duo Ikebana. Ikebana is made up of 2 wonderfully talented female artists, maki and en. Their unique music is infused with a strong sense of Shoegaze and Ambient, but in a very much stripped-down form. Phases of minimal guitar noise floating through the space of sounds, like a wavering light in darkness, with deeply reverbed female voices drifting in to create a calm universe between a dream and the reality. Unlike the current style of psychedelic/drone music for overseas, Ikebana’s music is about minimalism, about beauty in space, and about calmness, just like the art of flower arrangement of Ikebana itself.

    MayMay: And So I Place You In The Setting Sun

    ,
    MayMay is Laurel Simmons. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Simmonsʼ debut solo album, “And So I Place You In the Setting Sun” is a gorgeous, quietly powerful mediation on the acceptance of transition. Simmons is no stranger to creating pastoral, evocative music, having exercised her considerable vocal and instrumental skills as a member of beloved Portland chamber-folk darlings Loch Lomond, as well as collaborations with a variety of other well-regarded acts, including international touring with peers such as Alela Diane and Rauelsson. MayMay began during Simmonsʼ first winters in the Pacific Northwest leaving her homesick for the deserts of her native Arizona and the closeness of generations of family she left behind. MayMay is named in homage to her Arizona roots, in particular her grandmother Barbara Mae May. “And So I Place You in the Setting Sun” is a remarkable record, willing to experiment with the tension between ambiance and rhythmic texture, while nostalgia and eloquent melodies arrange themselves into dynamics that are compelling yet wanting. The instrumentation blooms and fades like seasons through artful arranging and listeners come away with the notion of how triumphant the heart can be. The collision of Simmonsʼ somber, ethereal vocals with lyrics permeated by images of sunlight and evocative themes of the process of letting go results in a record that truly sticks with the listener.

    MayMay – MayMay EP

    ,
    backyard. Recorded during the fall and winter of 2008 in Portland, Oregon, MayMay’s E.P. tells us a history through the sounds of fingerpicked nylon guitars, haunting vocal melodies and beautifully crafted string arrangements. With quietude and warmth, Laurel’s compositions flow full of emotivity and a natural sense of restraint. The music of MayMay transports us to a world in which we can dive to the bottom of the sea, ignoring the pressure of the water above us.

    Sylvain Chauveau – Abstractions

    ,
    “I’ve been remixing songs by other artists since 2001 and it’s something I always like to do. This year, in collaboration with the Flau label, I’ve decided to compile my favourite remixes and to release them on one CD. Most of the time, I like to transform very much the original songs. I try to bring them into my own musical atmosphere. For example, on Agoria’s techno song “Heart Beating”, I kept nearly nothing of the original music but I replaced it by orchestral parts that I had recorded with a 40-strings orchestra for the film by HR Boe “Beast”. Anyway, I always want to keep faithful to the original melodies. On this selection of remixes, I kept the original vocal parts. Some remixes are made out of songs that I’ve done myself (“Dernière Etape Avant le Silence”, “A_”) or with my band Arca with long-time collaborator Joan Cambon (“Attractions”, which inspired the title of this EP as “Abstractions”). Those remixes are another side of my musical work that had never been compiled before.” – Sylvain Chauveau

    Liz Christine – Sweet Mellow Cat

    ,
    Sweet Mellow Cat is a nicely arrenged showcase of liz christine’s work over the last few years. Subtle and delicate, sometimes verging’ on the abstract yet still instinctively melodic, her music is in fact a kind of sound-movie, or audio-text, constructed from a personal sound vocabulary and syntaxe developed by and for herself, where each sample has it’s own place on the narrative structure. Usually assisted by f s torres (aka kkfs) or the mysteriuos madamme f, Liz is basically using her own obsession (movies, old jazz divas and, of course, cats) to build sound-sculpture-books.

    The Boats – Faulty Toned Radio

    ,
    The 6th outing onto waters uncharted for the enigmatic Boats. Uncharted waters simply because The Boats refuse to be channeled into the niche so easily assigned to them. Having been kindly approached by aus and the Flau stable from Japan, for a statement of their musical intent, The Boats obliged. True to hearfelt form, they have generously delivered their most accomplished, and highly personal ships log to date. But listen closely, and dont get too comfortable with your dividing fencelines of genres as the horizon is blurred from on the ship’s deck by the haze of distance from familiar isles.
