    Pausal – Along the Mantic Spring

    ,
    180 gram pressing. The sleeves were made by a bookbinder and the result is a very heavy tip-on style gatefold sleeve and then finished with an OBI strip. Color version is sold out on pre-orders, the black vinyl is still available. 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. This is their 4th full-length album (there are also 2 eps to their credit) and is the follow-up to the ‘Sky Margin’ LP (Own Records) from last year. Pausal exists in a sub-genre of ambient lead by guitar-based drone ambience as well as layer upon gentle layer of more guitar, bells, piano and environmental recordings. It invites deeper listening into the composition itself. A composition built in restraint, a discernable set of hazy layers, and careful construction revealing a recording of rare beauty. “Modern classical ambient”, a slight-return to the denser and more reverb-drenched places of their earlier work but with the benefit of hindsight.

Over 3 years in the making, Anthropology Vols. 2 & 3 continues from Anthropology Vol. 1 CD (INFX 034) and the Anthropology Extras (INFX 032 FD). Epic sweeping ambience with layered drones punctuated by piano interludes. The intonation that is created is of an orchestra that has been somehow slowly suspended and released, gradually yielding a symphony of sound.

    Drape – An Idea And Its Map

    ,
    Edition of 400 copies. Black vinyl, 180 Gram pressing. Gatefold sleeve + OBI strip. Purchase of LP will include a download code of the album… Drape is an ambient duo comprised of Ryan Gracey and Spencer Williams. They have been crafting soundscapes since 2004. Their debut, ‘dream words’ (Gears of Sand) saw a limited CDR release in 2009. It was well received and garnered comparisons to Stars of the Lid, early 70’s Tangerine Dream as well as late 80’s space ambient. Their follow-up was an interesting pairing on cassette – a split w/ experimental artist Odd Nosdam. ‘An Idea And Its Map’ marks a refined leap forward in Drape’s sound. While less space music, there is certainly more expansion. It is a smudged and blended orchestra of drones on the opener ‘Solo in High Dreary’ and those drones are split apart in slow-motion – eventually revealing a single guitar tone. Moments of sublime resonance as on ‘The Visible The Untrue’ anchored by piano, and notes that float, seemingly carried in on a breeze. All is not as it seems with an undercurrent of ground swelling, oscillating air – somewhere in the distance there is a storm assembling. Ebb and flow between light and dark – silver lined black clouds converge on the B side opener ‘fanfare for lake flies’. The strings, guitar, siren calls are assembled and plastered to one another. A thick blanket of overwhelming beautiful cacophony results. The album’s close is as much filtered white noise as it is heavenly chords. The dual slow-motion treated guitar present thoroughout ‘An Idea…’ diverges between pools of dissonant feedback, howls of wind, and melodic drones.

    Fibreforms – Treedrums

    ,
    One-time numbered edition of 300. Includes two previously unreleased tracks from that early era… Long before KILN turned to the sunset-soaked textures of Dusker (2007), they made music as fibreforms. Treedrums (1996) documents their transition from live performance trio to sound-art synergists, balancing symbiotic instrumental spaces of kit-drums and treated guitars with lost & found sound to evoke moments that are at once invigorating and tranquil. Seventeen years later, Treedrums is presented here as an economized, re-amped, remixed, and properly restored archival edition of this once buried treasure of sonic curio.

    Minadeo / Brown – Wood Land

    ,
    ‘Wood Land’ features deluxe packaging with a perfect bound booklet of 28 pages, matte digipak, housed in a slipcase… Wood Land is a story of a nameless worker caught in the mundanity of placid bureaucracy. Wood Land is a story of buried towers and subtle rebellion. Wood Land is a story of unsubtle rebellion and totalitarian overthrow. Wood Land is a story of deep space awakening and astronaut spiders. Wood Land is a story of return and reconciliation. Wood Land is a story. Scored by Joseph Minadeo and written by Curt Brown with imagery by both. Sonically, ‘Wood Land’ was an extension of Joseph Minadeo’s first foray into ambient – ‘sounds from a photograph’, a ‘Pearl’-esque LP of Lanois affected piano and placid drones. ‘Wood Land’ extends that premise and gives a hazy nod towards Noto and Sakamoto’s collaborative soft digital clicks and sustained piano. Airy atmospheres are constructed with multiple piano layering plus guitars dissolving into despondant organ, synth sequencing and minimal drum padding. Slow cadences of hope and light are countered with ominous sonatas. Indescernible Vocals, courtesy of Gabriela Kropf, are mixed into the mellotron choirs. Joseph Minadeo is a composer behind the former Akron, Ohio (now Los Angeles) based Patternbased label. He is also a member of the post-rock outfit Low in the Sky. He recently moved to California to dig deeper into art and music. Curt Brown is an Akron, Ohio based artist and is a co-founder of Rubber City Noise, a collective that runs a record label and arts space in Akron. Current projects include Black Unicorn and Cane Swords among others. Several tracks from ‘Wood Land’ were used in the global collaborative documentary film ‘One Day on Earth’ (along w/ Sigur Ros, Beirut, Cut Chemist and Mum).

    Monos – Age & Transformation / Aged & Transformed

    ,
    2 x CD: Each CD is packaged in a card stock envelope and then housed in a mini-lp gatefold Stoughton sleeve with matte finishing and spot gloss lettering. Designed by Timothy O’Donnell.  Darren’s work has always been that of a drone eccentric — and proof positive of that is the micro-editions released since 2003 on his own Fungal Records. True modern-day psychedelia, drawn out drone excursions, electric guitar scraping & expansion, synth noodling harbored into small private recordings for the chosen few. The limited number of those exposed to Darren’s view –which was NOT intended to be exclusive — just small updates as to where/what was happening with Darren in terms of gear, mood and circumstance. There is an inherent feel that little editing takes place – just captured recordings with the reel-to-reel on. Tate has worked extensively with other collaborators – Andrew Chalk (together known as Ora), Colin Potter (as Monos), Paul Bradley, Andrew Liles, Ian Holloway to name a few. Collectively a solid block foundation of great U.K. drone artists. In a collaborative setting, there may be a bit more judicious editing employed for better (or for worse) depending on where one sits in appreciation of refinement over improvisation. Which brings us to “Age & Transformation”. Two tracks, both around the half-hour mark and presumably recorded in one take each. The first track (Untitled) contains all elements of what makes a Tate recording effective- gentle guitar scraping, echoed city recordings, air vibrations oscillating an overall nocturnal hush that shrouds the whole piece. The second track (again, simply “Untitled”) is undoubtedly one of Tate’s finest solo moments. A defining impressionistic recording from the middle of the night. It opens with the sound of a freeway – a very distant light traffic flow filtered through the forest. A lonesome organ sonata, languid chords with silence in between weave in and out at various points throughout. Tate sitting by the window capturing the sounds of the freeway, voices – haunting arias both human and industrial. The 2nd disc is a reworking by Colin Potter. Extracted from the quiet of “A&T”, the first track “Aged” is an encapsulation of the entire recording with the small dervishes, organ melodies and drone wrapped up in an almost tidy nine minutes. The second “Transformed” – is over 40 minutes of water tower acoustic sustained tones, layered subtle guitar hum – a perfect complimentary refinement on a classic ambient improvisation.

    Celer – The Everything And The Nothing

    ,
    Sublime, album-length track of ambient drones from the wonderful Celer. In its 71-minute duration ‘The Everything and the Nothing’ slowly transitions between glowing tones to symphonic bliss-outs and darker zones of bass subduction to ghostly drifts
