    Yann Novak – Presence

    ,
    Yann Novak is a sound, video and installation artist living and working in Los Angeles. His work utilizes different forms of digital documentation as a point of departure. Through the digital manipulation of these sound and image files, his works serve as a translation from documents of personal experiences into an open ended autobiographical narrative. By choosing subject matter that is also relatable to the audience, Novak’s work creates a hybrid state, balancing between his own personal history and that of the audience. Yann has had previous works released on Line, Infrequency, White Line Editions. In addtion Yann manages the label Dragon’s eye which has seen numerous works by the artist released.

    Strategy – Super Awareness Is Fruit

    ,
    Limited edition of 200 copies on clear vinyl. One 20-minute, deeply layered and psyched-out dub track from Paul Dickow’s Strategy project split over two sides* Super Awareness Is Fruit comes as a welcome expansion of the multilayered ambiences that made up Dickow’s Music For Lamping long-player, tackling the contemporary drone-scape with an agenda that eschews minimalist convention in favour of a sparkling, densely populated narrative full of dissolved acoustic timbres, wah-wah filtering treat.

    Hess & McFall – The Inescapable Fox

    ,
    I think I speak for Steven and I both when I make mention of the fact that a great deal of the materials used to create this release stemmed from a mutual interest in working with taped (analog) recordings. So, when we began working together we started by sending analog recordings back and forth by mail. Most of my recordings are done on treated tape, whereby the binder material is subjected to hydrolysis prior to the recording phase. Steven recorded some of the more sound/precussive elements for the inescapable fox on some of my tapes and his as well. He sent them to me and I began editing the material from there. I’ve been working with piano, voice and field recordings for some time now, so I tailored these source recordings specific to the tracks on the release. As far as ideologies are concerned, we approached the collaboration process thematically in order to attempt to focus our work for this release.

    Mark Fry / The A Lords – I Lived In Tress

    ,
    Released by RCA Italy with little fanfare in 1972, Mark Fry’s Dreaming With Alice is one of those very particular albums whose potency and poetry seem to owe everything to their era but whose virtues only gain traction, and with it coach-loads of interested parties, many years, if not the odd epoch, after their conception. Effectively a late-period psych-folk obscurity that became a record connoisseur’s Holy Grail once all things vaguely Incredible String Band-shaped became once again à la mode in the middle of the last decade, Dreaming With Alice, frequently bootlegged and described by Dream magazine as “one of those albums that feels like a secret you can’t wait to share”, had finally found its time and place.

    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.

    Warm Widow – Widower

    ,
    Manchester’s Warm Widow never really intended to make this album – well, not in the way that “Widower” presents itself anyway. This was supposed to be the scratchy blueprint for the actual Warm Widow album, recorded, you know, like proper albums are recorded: in a recording studio perhaps, with an array of ‘appropriate’ microphones, with an actual producer (or certainly an engineer), and time to allow the band the breathing space to ‘nail it’, with additional options to try multiple takes and overdubs – in general, recording with a certain amount of control and ease.

    Robe. – Time Dilation

    ,
    Drone/noise in the vein of older Burial Hex, but there’s some more subdued guitar-based action going on here. Like a much, much more interesting version of (unfortunately coincidentally named) Robedoor. The sound of ceremonies drifting across great fogged expanses of time and space. Some moments, especially the last track “Final Glimpse” remind of dark ambient classics like Lustmord’s Heresy and Lull’s Cold Summer.

    Elian – Whispers, Then Silence

    ,
    To say Michael Duane Ferrell (the man behind the Elian moniker) is a patient man would be something of an understatement. But then the work of Elian is all incredibly understated anyway, so it all fits nicely. I first heard Elian’s work through mutual contacts, my first experience being ‘We Are All Visitors Here’ on the rather wonderful Test Tube label. In fact, if you go over the work he has released, you will instantly notice a person who clearly takes his time and treats each album as a labour of love in the fullest sense.

    ,
    After opening our series of split vinyls with white/lichens last year, :take: is back with an EP, and this time, it’s through a new media, i.e. CD format. This great adventure between the label and the guitarist goes on and we hope that we will continue our collaboration in the future. That being said, you should know that we are truly fond of this beautiful project that begun two years ago. Recorded and mixed at home with heart by Laurent Bichara, it was then mastered by Jeremy Lemos. This should be the last step before :take:’s debut album.

    Arkhonia’s “Trails/Traces” fulfils the much promised, but seldom delivered, remit of large portions of ambient music – “to take the listener on a journey”… From the deep rumblings of the album’s opener to the final decaying notes and crackles of its closing track, all manner of mood-shifting experimentation directs (and occasionally derails) the listener along a sonic path that is at times unnerving and, at others, warmly welcoming.

    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.

    ,
    The collaboration between Scott Cortez and thisquietarmy doesn’t really come as a surprise. The latter acknowledges that the previous works from Cortez (under the lovesliescrushing moniker) greatly influenced his work, to the point of using the same way of writing the band’s name (no capital letter and no spaces between words) for his actual solo project. The main thing that they have in common is their unconventional use of the guitar, which they consider as a signal generator. They then process those sounds through various effects, to obtain a different result than that of the original signal until the source becomes almost undetectable. Meridians is also the first vinyl production from thisquietarmy, as it is Scott Cortez’s first under his real name.

    Wreaths – Like Sparks From Throats Falling

    ,
    Wreaths is the moniker of Michael R Donaldson. He creates experimental music with a variety of instruments and techniques and has an idiosyncratic approach to capturing the ideas which reside in his head. Like Sparks From Throats Falling opens with ‘Nautical Almanac’. The track begins with long drones and electronics. Slowly building, the effect is mesmerising, then suddenly everything falls away into the abyss, ending with hushed tones, a hint of what’s to come. ‘O! Like Falling Snow’ proffers a more melancholic mood, with plaintive guitar playing backed by mournful strings. The piece is sublime and the delicate guitar feels like it may falter and fall apart at any moment, the fragility lending emphasis to the beauty present.

    Small Town Boredom – Autumn Might Have Hope

    ,
    Small Town Boredom are an aptly named duo from Paisley, consisting of Fraser McGowan and Colin Morrison. Their debut album Autumn Might Have Hope was released through Trome Records in 2008, and despite arriving to it late I’ve become quite transfixed by it’s perfectly languid encapsulation of the frustrations of both small town life and small town mentality. There’s a sense of hopelessness which permeates the low key compositions, sculpted primarily through acoustic instrumentation and the odd swell of subtle electronics. The key ingredient though is the vocals, which exude the kind of lethargy of broken dreams. The songs are hushed and intimate, like whisperings of thoughts which you try not to dwell on for too long and never quite break to the forefront. The lyrics are delivered with such blunt honesty though that it’s impossible not to confront the issues dealt with, particulalrly given the relative sparsity of the production.

    Small Town Boredom – Notes from the Infirmary

    ,
    Artists thrive on emotional extremes, moments of unprecedented joy or crushing sadness. It is easier to transcribe these feelings into music. Middle grounds are much too complicated to address with music, the confusion, the mood swings come fast and what would seem like a perfect fit with one’s emotions at one point make no sense after a few minutes. They lack clarity. Melancholy drenched songs in particular seem to connect better with the receivers of music than their happier counterparts. Steven Wilson, mastermind behind Progressive rock group Porcupine Tree, once introduced one of their saddest songs “Stop Swimming” by saying “this next song is a very sad song, but if you’re like me, you’ll find that the saddest songs are also the most beautiful”. I find this to hold true.
