VARIOUS - In a Moment… Ghost Box

Ghost Box commemorate their 10th anniversary with a 27-track compendium of highlights from parishioners and extended family wrapped up in super artwork by Julian House. Spanning material from their earliest issue, Belbury Poly's 'Farmer's Angle', thru to classics by The Advisory Group, Roj and Hintermass and more recent - but no less retro - excursions by The Soundcarriers and Pye Corner Audio, 'In A Moment' forms a gently rolling, deep topographical survey of the fictional parish of Belbury and its surrounding wolds. When the label first crossed into our dimension circa 2008, their quaint brand of retro nostalgia occupied a curious space in the sub-popular, hauntological consciousness; at once resonating with listeners old enough to remember the '60s / '70s themes they reference, and also with younger listeners who were at least old enough to experience the emotional hangover of that era thru terrestrial TV and cable channel re-runs. 2015 is obviously a very different world to 2005 or even 2008, and now these tunes feel even quainter and more detached from this world, perhaps even irrelevant to younger audiences who shouldn't need to wonder what they're supposed to be getting and/or are missing. But Ghost Box's principles remain the same - a tight union of sound/imagery/aesthetic/design, a feeling for the eldritch, and ultimately endeavouring to deliver a pleasurable, even genteel experience. Safe to say that you won't find any sharp edges or burrs in this set, which is all the better to bumble about to after a few real ales and a crumbly scotch egg whilst a guilt-looking Mac blinks the old BBC test-screen as your screen-saver over in the corner. A more retroproof album this year you will not find. Listen Here

Aksak Maboul - Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine

Aksak Maboul's truly legendary proto-techno/free jazz suite FINALLY given a timely vinyl reissue by its maker, Marc Hollander's Crammed Discs. A hugely cherished record around these parts, not least for the strangely prescient 'Saure Gurke' - whose bubbling electronic chords and drum machines uncannily pre-dated Detroit techno by 10 years - 'Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine' remains an outstanding and charming oddity by almost anyone's standards. Now for the first time since 1981 it's available on vinyl again, replete with a 2-page track-by-track breakdown in the liner notes where Marc Hollander modestly notes 'Saure Gurke''s similarity to Detroit techno, and also gives a little more context behind its title for non-German speakers, translating to "hey man, you must have been lured out of the jungle with a gherkin!" (which is a German idiom meaning "One doesn't find people as weird as you on every street corner). That crucial cut aside, the rest of the album plays out a pre-digital phantasia of ideas, allowing Hollander and Vincent Kenis to simultaneously coin and explore odd new dimensions, vacillating piquant electronic and electro-acoustic arabesques with passages of minimalist, Eastern-influenced free jazz, nursery rhymes and ersatz Pygmy percussive rituals. At this point we will struggle to give you any comparisons because it is simply a peerless record, brilliantly out of place, time and space yet immediately and enduringly full of charm, wit and musical dexterity. Unmissable. in boomkat

M.E.S.H. - Piteous Gate

M.E.S.H. - Piteous Gate (PAN) Comentários: Janus crew's M.E.S.H. unpackages a vast internal world across the ornate topographies of his incredible debut album. Combining scything club dynamics and Hollywood sound design with a sample bank of archaic renaissance instruments, 'Piteous Gate' describes a hyperreal place-out-of-time framed by matrices of tessellating grids and vapour-trace contours rent in near-VR detail. Collapsing the stadium-sized structures of "festival trance" with oblique elements of baroque improv and jump-cut club tempos, his collages present an incisive critique of dance music's affect and perceived boundaries, especially in light of our current state of information overload. Written quickly over winter 2015, it feels like M.E.S.H's attempt to parse the world around him thru the prism of his CPU - a world of flux variously informed by 24 hour news coverage, the unprecedented fingertip access of Youtube and google to unlimited culture, and one of increasingly fluid gender boundaries. Bearing that in mind, 'Piteous Gate' is an acute, if abstracted, benchmark of nowness; from the opener's cinematic rush; thru to the sim stim renaissance fantasies of 'The Black Pill'; the amorphous dancefloor ambiguity of 'Epithet''s worksite percussions or the rubber-necking structure of 'Methy Imbiß'; or the sparring computer gamers of 'Kritikal & X; he appears to turn the machine inside out, diffusing its exoskeleton to reveal the sheer noise gradients and writhing mechanical logic beneath, and, in the process, question the emotional value we now draw from these aesthetics and dynamics. That said, it could also be taken as proper sci-fi action joy ride, and comes hugely recommended to fans of his Janus crew (Lotic, Kablam, T C F), Autechre or Arca. in boomkat

Helm - Olympic Mess

Helm - Olympic Mess (PAN) Luke Younger's Helm undergoes a captivating metamorphosis from noise agitator to industrial ambient alchemist with 'Olympic Mess', his new album for PAN. Prompted by a period of personal turmoil and a chaotic lifestyle on the road playing support for Danish punks, Ice Age; Younger expands his sonic palette here with nods to the loop-based structures and textural sensuality of balearic disco, dub techno and industrial music. When filtered into his patented mix of hi-fidelity electro-acoustic process, field recordings and intricate noise, the juxtapositions seemingly consolidate the exhausting, narcotic highs of playing live night-after-night with the serenity of ambient come-down tones and suspended states of dance/noise music delirium. Likewise, this aesthetic could be read to reflect his recording environments, folding in the flux of people, concrete, steel and electricity between New York, Berlin and London across its ten tracks, manifest from the schizoid warp of 'Don't Lick The Jacket' to the dense grind and explosive euphoria of 'Outerzone 2015', or the unsettling intimacy of found sound in the monologue of 'Strawberry Chapstick'. We'd also read a certain Ballardian element to the whole album, from the kinaesthetic crush of the record cover's car wreck detail, to the album's titular reference to London's layered, evolving skyline, and the visceral tang and vibration of blood, emotions and momentum inherent to transient life on the road and in the city.

Palmbomen II - Palmbomen II

Palmbomen II - Palmbomen II (Beats In Space Records / RVNG Intl.) Kai Hugo aka Palmbomen II drops one of the most distinctive entries to the proto and lop-sided slo-house discourse with this suite of sidelong, sidereal chuggers. RIYL High Wolf, Danielle Baldelli, Beautiful Swimmers… "Guided by voices hardwired into machines of dance productions past, Kai Hugo redirects the collaborative context of his Palmbomen project and escapes within to create the self-titled debut of Palmbomen II. Possesses the qualities of an artist slipping from one reality to the next, yet welcomes listeners to experience this transcendence in tandem." in boomkat

Luka Lozano & Mr Ho - Dripbox EP

Klasse Recordings label heads Luca Lozano and Mr Ho hook up here with a new EP on Creme Organization. They turn out one solo track each and two collaborative efforts and explore the sort of jacking, mystical house sounds you would expect from this established Dutch label. 

First up, 'Dripbox' - crafted by both producers - is raw and tough, with lots of analogue atmosphere, tripped out synths and muffled vocals. 'Bear Samurai' is then a solo effort from Mr Ho that marries droning sirens with gallivanting, lumpy drums and hiccuping percussive patterns. It's sythentica and metallic, reflective and shiny before the pair hook up again for 'Hot Trak', which is a more serene and bubbly deep house cut. The claps chatter, the cow bells get lively and the drums are super corrugated. Finally, Lozano gets even more raw and prickly, kinetic and textural with his closer 'Autonomika', which also comes complete with sci-fi melodies and a thick, dirty bassline that will destroy dance floors.

Prurient - Frozen Niagara Falls

Prurient - Frozen Niagara Falls ( Profound Lore) Comentários: ‘Frozen Niagara Falls’ is his defining, most exploratory and ultimately rewarding work to date. It’s an epic undertaking too - spanning two discs (the vinyl edition which will follow next month is a mammoth 3LP) and includes over an hour and a half of music, veering from the surprisingly contemplative destroyed-folk of ‘Greenpoint’ and 'Christ Among The Broken Glass’, to painfully blissful, Vangelis-esque night-scapes ('Jester In Agony’), to decimated noise ('A Sorrow With A Braid’, 'Falling Mask’) - and many many points in between. Narrated by Fernow’s own highly-presonalised vocals (arcing from indecipherable screech to startling, almost translucent spoken word), by the end of its 90+ minutes you feel worn out, exhilarated, withdrawn, pummelled and ultimately comforted by the sheer scope and ambition on display. It’s an album that finds Fernow as far removed from an artist resting on their laurels as you could imagine - there are no cheap thrills on offer, nor is the narrative designed to startle. In many ways, it encapsulates the all-too-often suppressed urges of young producers to just go wherever the mood, ideas and technology will allow without compromise - yet bolstered by the experience (musical, and otherwise) of someone who has been at it long enough for us to expect them to have long stopped trying. 2011’s excellent ‘Bermuda Drain’ was a bit of a game-changer for Fernow - embracing more overtly composed, structured electronic signatures with lyrical content and delivery that were at the polar opposite. Further - the Vatican Shadow releases that surfaced around the same time for labels such as Blackest Ever Black, Modern Love, Type and Fernow's own Hospital Productions brought him into the sightline of an audience that was largely made up of people who had never heard a noise record in their life. This slow-easing into Fernow’s unique, conflicted dystopia has laid the ground well for ‘Frozen Niagara Falls’ - an album that will most likely be listened to by a far broader demographic than any in Fernow’s career so far. There is an assured, obsessive, hungry quality to this material that is certain to elicit an obsessive following from both Fernow's long-standing noise worshippers and his more recent, electronically-minded converts - and yet it never feels overly knowing or contrived. On tracks such as ‘Cocaine Daughter’ this confluence is perfectly realised; drawing us in with spacious, warm pads riding alongside a doubled-up and grotesque narrative. It’s majestically beautiful and yet somehow desperately sad. Like the rest of the album, it feels genuinely without compromise - something that on its own would have been enough to have us singing its praises endlessly. As it is, it also happens to be one of the most engrossing and complex albums in recent memory - regardless of genre - so whether you’ve heard any Prurient albums before or not, we urge you to give it some of your time. in boomkat

American Reflexxx

“American Reflexxx is a short film documenting a social experiment that took place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Alli Coates filmed performance artist Signe Pierce as she strutted down a busy oceanside street in stripper garb and a reflective mask. The pair agreed not to communicate until the experiment was completed, but never anticipated the horror that would unfold in under an hour.” The result is a heart wrenching technicolor spectacle that raises questions about gender stereotypes, mob mentality, and violence in America. Directed by: Alli Coates Starring: Signe Pierce Filmed on location in Myrtle Beach, SC.

HEDGE MAZE - DYSANIA (Lobster Theremin) Untitled is a chattering roller, smothered with a throbbing, wavy bassline and ending in a fuzzy, chord-soaked crescendo, while the slow, drudging rhythms of Dysania give a heavy nod to some of Lowtec's down tempo numbers for the label. The release is rounded out with the glistening, black-sun shower of (slow). All delay-drenched crystal stabs and oscillating soundscapes. A floating, ethereal trip into the afterlife.
