    Tegh / Kamyar Tavakoli – Through The Winter Woods

    ,
    ‘Through the Winter Woods’ from Tegh and Kamyar Tavakoli. Both based in Tehran, this collaborative project sees the duo using processed guitars, synths and field recordings to create densely textured pieces inspired by their urban surroundings. Both solo artists in their own right, the duo also work together under the name Artirial but were looking to branch out and try something a bit different for this EP. Having gathered various field recordings they began experimenting with new approaches to shaping sounds and textures, resulting in a diverse collection of pieces. Mastered by Lawrence English, artwork by Katie English.

    Danny Clay – Ganymede

    ,
    Matte finished sleeve and glass mastered CD in limited edition 100... “Ganymede” is the latest full length album from Ohio based composer Danny Clay. Having seen past releases on labels such as Eilean Records, Rural Colours, Heat Death and Audio Gourmet, each release has been very different but with each there is a theme where his music takes ordinary objects, sounds and ideas and re-purposes them in new, weird and wonderful ways. With that in mind, “Ganymede” consists of almost exclusively sounds produced by turntables, utilizing found objects, friction sounds, and lathe-cut records of sine-waves, piano, and music box. Many of these sounds have been further amplified by turntable preparations such as plastic cups with needles, combs, etc. and baby monitors.

    Memory Drawings – There Is No Perfect Place (2 x CD)

    ,
    Comes with bonus remix disc. Packaged in a six-panel cardboard sleeve with insert... There is No Perfect Place is the second full length album from Anglo-American chamber-folk outfit Memory Drawings. Led by the beguiling hammered dulcimer of Morocco-based American Joel Hanson, There Is No Perfect Place features Richard Adams and Sarah Kemp on guitars and violin respectively. The album showcases a wide palette of sounds delving into Talk Talk atmospherics, uplifting ethnic tinged pop, kraut driven experiments alongside Basinski – style piano pieces and glistening examples of the kind of Badalamenti influenced instrumentals that littered their debut album Music For Another Loss (Second Language, 2012). The album was recorded with Leeds based engineer Ross Halden and in Richard Adams home studio in York with guest spots from Florence Fawcett, Gareth S Brown and Canadian multi-instrumentalist Chris Tenz. The first 200 copies of the album comes with a bonus CD containing remixes by Benoit Pioulard, William Ryan Fritch, Pausal, A New Line (Related), Talvihorros and The Sly and Unseen.

    Olan Mill / Keung Mandelbrot – Seismology

    ,
    Seismology sees the soaring romanticism of Olan Mill combined with the mind-bending noise of Keung Mandelbrot. Between them they have graced labels such as Highpoint Lowlife, Preservation, Facture and Serein and shared a stage with the likes of Svarte Greiner, Kemper Norton, Simon Scott and Isan. In his solo work, Keung Mandelbrot focuses on experiments in guitar manipulation, using effects pedals and samplers to create intense soundscapes that take the listener from immersive drones to twitchy static. Olan Mill is well known for his expansive take on modern classical and incorporates strings, woodwind, piano and vocals alongside his processed guitar. Despite having been friends for years, the pair had never previously collaborated but one weekend they decided to plug in and play. The result is a visceral album that effortlessly combines the styles of these two disparate yet complimentary musicians, moving swiftly from enveloping textural drones to broken fragments of noise and intense rhythmic pulses. Recorded using guitars and numerous effects pedals, many of the tracks are left relatively untouched from the improvised sessions which lends the album a refreshing spontaneity.

    David Newlyn – Disintegrating Suburban Dream

    ,
    With his solo project, David Newlyn has been creating atmospheric, textural music since 2007. Known to Hibernate fans for a collaborative EP with Yellow6 back in 2011 he has also had numerous works released on labels such as Cotton Goods, Time Released Sound, Tokyo Droning and Flaming Pines. Based just outside Durham city, David combines electronics with guitars, keyboards and fretless bass to create hazy melancholic pieces. His latest album, ‘Disintegrating Suburban Dream’ sees David’s love of exploring and photographing derelict or abandoned places translated into a series of twelve impressionistic studies that focus on time and place. Alongside the markedly more acoustic instrumentation than his previous work lie spur of the moment field recordings made simply on a phone or camera, making a feature of the hiss and grit generated by these recordings. A celebration of dereliction, David Newlyn’s latest work succeeds in drawing the listener through its crumbling corridors as distant, decaying melodies act as a backdrop to ghostly chatter through a layer of fog.

    Isnaj Dui / Offthesky / Orla Wren – 85%

    ,
    85% is a collaboration between Isnaj Dui, Offthesky and Orla Wren. All three artists appeared at the Homenormalism show in London at the beginning of August 2013 where it was discovered that they shared a love for 85% dark chocolate. We hinted that an ep should be recorded on that basis and next thing Orla Wren pulls out his iPad and starts recording Isnaj Dui’s flute, Offthesky’s guitar and a load of other random instruments. A little while later the ep was finished…

    Rudi Arapahoe – Double Bind

    ,
    A numbered limited edition 3″ CDr of 100… Double Bind is the second release from Rudi Arapahoe; the EP continues from where the album Echoes From One To Another (2008) left off, shifting the artist’s language into an increasingly bleak and abstract superstratum. The term “double bind” was originally coined by Gregory Bateson and his colleagues in the 1950s, in an attempt to elucidate the interpersonal interactions that were perceived to precede and maintain schizophrenia. The theory is now used to discuss a variety of complex relationships. Rudi has applied the theory to the relationships that define his world and voiced the findings as music. A face in the mirror, an intimate partner, a public face, a professional face, opponents in business, friendships, the relationships that make up a life; come together to speak, confound and contradict one another. The resulting music, Double Bind, rings out as complex, knotted chords that represent our lives in society.

    Ian Hawgood & Friends: Wolven (2 x Digipak CD)

    ,
    Hibernate would perhaps not be where it is today without ‘Wolfskin’ by Ian Hawgood, our inaugural release back in 2009. Wolfskin referenced a series of nightmares Ian had as a child, focussing on elements of dreams and violence by marrying beauty with the harsh. Ian Hawgood has immersed himself in musical projects for longer than he cares to remember; in recent years he has released through the likes of Experimedia, Dragon’s Eye and his own Home Normal label as well as through several netlabels. Increasingly, Ian has been collaborating with other artists – including Jason Corder (Offthesky), Tim Martin (Maps and Diagrams), Danny Norbury, Ryo Nakata (Ryonkt) and Clem Leek.

    Caught In The Wake Forever – Against A Simple Wooden Cross

    ,
    Caught In The Wake Forever is the work of Scottish based artist Fraser McGowan who hails from the delightfully lovely town of Paisley near Glasgow. Not long back we released the now sold out postcard ep “Sadness & Static” which was a collaboration between Fraser, Karina ESP and Sheepdog. Also Edinburgh based label Mini50 records last year released his ep “All The Hurt That Hinders Home” which featured remixes from the likes of Library Tapes, Fieldhead and Yellow6. Fraser has been recording music one way or another since 1998 and as part of the band Small Town Boredom he released two albums for the London based label The Remains Of My Estate. Fraser’s recent output has been mostly on a solo basis and with Against A Simple Wooden Cross, we’re very excited and honoured to present the first full Caught In The Wake Forever album.

    Isnaj Dui – Abstracts On Solitude

    ,
    Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records. One of her most recent and on-going projects is called Duodecim, a subscription based album that has seen a track released each month since September.

Katie has performed live alongside the likes of Library Tapes, Nils Frahm, Konntinent and Simon Scott amongst others and in venues such as The Foundry, National Portrait Gallery and The Union Chapel.

    Wil Bolton – Under A Name That Hides Her

    ,
    Limited edition of 200: We are very happy to be selling the limited edition first 100 copies that come with a CD, beautifully printed postcard, download code, plus a nice little Hibernate business card… Despite being a difficult subject to put into words, nostalgia nevertheless attracts a great deal of fascination and is something that every individual can relate to. It is often close to the heart of the artist, shaping their identity and aesthetic and providing the inspiration for many a project. We welcome back Wil Bolton to Hibernate with his first vinyl release; we are pleased to present an album that places nostalgia at the heart of its overriding theme. It was conceived when Wil set out to create an album that was inspired by the guitar bands he listened to as a teenager, such as The Cure, The Smiths, The Velvet Underground and My Bloody Valentine. He strived to transmit his nostalgic recollection of adolescent musical influences into a heavily treated, droned out muffled and crumbling sonic environment. He wanted to create something that sonically presents his nostalgia, sounding submerged or decaying, as if heard through a veil the way memories and images become distorted over time.

    Kleefstra / Pruiksma / Kleefstra – Deislieper

    ,
    CD Digipak with booklet edition of 500… The Kleefstra brothers, Romke and Jan are members of the Dutch improv band Piiptsjilling along with Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) and Mariska Baars (Soccer Committee). In 2008 Piiptsjilling recorded its first acclaimed, untitled album and since the brothers have worked and recorded together with several other musicians. Their music invariably involves the experimental guitar playing of Romke in combination with the spoken word in Frisian, an old European minority language by Jan. Sometimes dreamy, melancholic and melodic, sometimes dark, haunting and noisy, but always instant music, both in the studio and on stage.

    Danny Saul – Harsh, Final

    ,
    As guitarist with Tsuji Giri (Manchester’s biggest and best kept secret ‘almost’ band of recent years, alongside The Sonar Yen), Saul self-released a Steve Albini-recorded album in 2005, with the band promptly self-destructing upon release. After all the tribulations associated with the process of production and shared decision-making, Danny rethought every aspect of how to perform and record with the minimum of intervention or interference; Harsh, Final is the culmination of a bloody minded pursuit for a personal satisfaction in both making music and Doing Things Right. ‘Your Death’ opens the album with softly plucked acoustic guitar, and proceeds to build layers of acoustic and electric guitars into a hazed atmosphere, which suddenly comes into focus as the track s defining chords state that this is a song, and that everything put in place so far is only framework. And in many ways this typifies what makes the record really tick: the fission between the pull of the songs and the musical dynamics working within and yet outside them. Be sure – Danny Saul is very much not a conventional singer-songwriter, with all the compromise and baggage that carries with it.

    Andrea Ferraris / Matteo Uggeri – Autumn Is Coming

    ,
    Experimental music, by its very nature, is often unconcerned with melody; other qualities of sound and music are explored, taken apart and reconstructed with the intent of presenting the listener with surprising new ways to engage with the listening experience. Many commendable aural experiences have been produced by mere tweaking of single variables within sound; much of the ambient canon relies on a relatively minimal bag of tricks. It is, however, clear from the outset that “Autumn is Coming…” is a very different beast indeed.

    Danny Saul – Kinison – Goldthwait (CD)

    ,
    To have the names of two of the most famous comedians of the 1980’s, let alone two engaged in one of the harshest feuds ever between any comedians as the title of the album, with artwork to match, could leave the prospective listener with a number of different notions regarding the music contained in this album. Personally speaking, having never heard any of Danny Saul’s previous albums, the first thing that came to mind prior to listening to this release was that it could be an electronica influenced album, with lots of tension and relief, and loads of samples by both comedians embedded randomly within the music. I couldn’t have been any farther from the truth…

    Talvihorros – Descent Into Delta (Vinyl)

    ,
    A year passes by and finally Talvihorros is back with his latest album Descent Into Delta to be released on both vinyl and CD. The man behind this one man guitar driven excursion is London based Ben Chatwin who in addition to hibernate has had material released through Benbecula, My Dance The Skull and our sister label Rural Colours. Despite only recently forming the Talvihorros project in 2008, Chatwin has been experimenting with sound ever since he first picked up a guitar as a teenager. His live performances have seen him share a stage with the likes of Tim Hecker, Stephan Mathieu and Ian Hawgood to name just a few. Chatwin has to this point juggled live performances and studio work as two separate entities with studio material being culled from sounds derived from as many different instruments as possible and live performances being restricted to just guitar and pedals.
