Review: No-one could accuse the London-based duo Public Service Broadcasting of lacking ambition-after the runaway success of their debut 'Inform - Educate - Entertain', this second album, whilst still utilising their trademark mixture of archive audio recordings, krautrock and post-rock. focuses conceptually on the '60s space race, and summons up a suitably widescreen and emotionally resonant backdrop for these stirring tales of voyages into the unknown. Both playful and respectful, it's a heartfelt record whose experimental elan matches the ground-breaking nature and sense of wonder of the subject matter, with these soundscapes and grooves sounding forceful and engaging even whilst they're figuratively staring at the stars.

Review: First released in 1998, the last album from the sadly missed Mark Hollis was originally set to be a Talk Talk album, scheduled to follow up 1991's "Laughing Stock". Described by engineer Phil Brown as "open, restful and at times fantastically beautiful", Hollis' only solo effort is quite the opposite of the dark and claustrophobic direction of Talk Talk's final album. Entirely self-produced, the record takes Talk Talk's pared back, emotive intimacy further into yet more minimal, private territory, of sometimes almost unbearable intensity. A complex, compelling last dispatch from an indisputable genius.

Review: The unveiling of an Apparat album is always cause for commotion with the artist influence enough to push radio stations to stream his music 24/7 upon release. Long passages of streaming synth-textures underline the loose and sparse percussive effects of Apparat's jazz and minimalism. The artist's signature bass pulses hit the sweet spot throughout the albums entirety, always inspiring a well of heavy feeling when they do. Touches of the artist's Bpitch Control days remain as does Apparat's always inspired approach when merging instrumentation with outboard gear and technology, beat making and sound design. A sound to cherish once more.

  11. Take Me Home (2:04)
Review: Once again using an ambitious conceptual framework to house a record which draws on historical texts and multimedia sources alongside their widescreen melange of post-rock, prog, dance and ambient stylings, 'Every Valley' deals with the Welsh mining industry and its trials and travails in the last half of the twentieth century. A project as mighty as the industry it chronicles, it resonates with emotive heft and atmospheric power whilst being careful not to overly romanticise its subject matter - this is fundamentally a deeply melancholic album, chronicling the slow demise of a way of life with spirit, clarity and sensitivity, not to mention musical invention.

Review: If you're yet to come across Helen Money then now is probably a very good time to rectify that. A background in classical music - and how seriously aficionados of the canon take her - suggests unarguable talent, and her work is proof. Reverence in alternative circles shows how she has never stuck to the path well-trodden, and instead forges ahead on her own terms in pretty much every outing. This is no exception. A maestro on the cello, which leads the charge on this mystifying, brooding and exceptionally cinematic effort, it's incredible just how versatile she makes the instrument sound when you consider your stereotypical thoughts on how it is usually played. Plucked, bowed, reverberated, whatever the approach it offers new depths to the ear, from the chilling 'Coil', which utilises pianos to add a feeling if impending something, to 'Midnight''s melancholia, this is exquisite stuff.

Review: Adding vocalist and second drummer to the already commanding Radar Men team sheet, the Dutch avant-garde noise makers return with yet another bold step for music - raw, loud, and unfettered by outdated ideas like genre, 'The Bestial Light' is a record that wants you to notice it, and does everything in its power to make sure you do.
Whereas past excursions have touched on spacey rock, drone and even industrial techno, here they navigate the blood, sweat and spilt beer of punk, an attitude that's carried through in the song titles themselves - see 'Piss Christ', if you need an example. It's not just cacophonous face-melters , though, with tracks like 'Sacred...' using slow, syrupy riffs to create far more proggy atmosphere. Impossible to ignore, damn difficult to escape from, and guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

Review: Plenty has changed since Battles exploded onto the scene as one of the freshest bands of that moment. Not least within the outfit itself, with departures and instability seeming to run through the very DNA of this troupe. Nevertheless, some things have certainly stayed the same - in particular the complexity and detail in their sound. Synth math prog rock, without wanting to put too fine a point on it. At times it's almost over-facing, that is until you cut through the chaos and start to truly appreciate how good the nuances and intricacies actually are. Highlights come thick and fast, from opener "Ambulance" which nods to playful classical; re-read through chip music before exploding into hypnotic mania. "IZM", which benefits from the appearance of hip hop duo Shabazz Palaces, nods to turn-of-the-century Beasties Boys or Chemical Brothers. And "Sugar Foot" which takes things down a more organic, vocal-driven route. Intelligent and intellectual, not that we expected anything less.

Review: The tireless Emotional Rescue dig once more into the well of cultish music from days gone by with a fully remastered reissue of Whichever Way You Are Going You Are Going Wrong, the debut album from brotherly duo Woo. Originally released back in 1982, this thirteen track set finds Mark and Clive Ives delivering a hugely ahead of their time exposition of hard to categorise electro acoustic folk. This hugely prolific pair was once described as "sounding like the music the Durutti Column would have made with Penguin Cafe Orchestra if produced by Brian Eno" and whoever came up with that obviously had Whichever Way You Are Going You Are Going Wrong in mind.

Review: This collaboration between the sepulchral Sinatra and the kings of ceremonial metallic drone-worship, whilst it is transparently not a work for the faint of heart, is nonetheless worth all the excitement its announcement created in avant-garde circles, and more besides, It's more audibly a work from Walker's than Sunn O)))'s, yet with their assistance the rich melodrama and unflinching abstraction has rarely sounded more startling, or alarmingly approachable. What's more, the counterpoint provided by Sunn O))) to his stentorian baritone elevates proceedings to new heights of otherworldly intensity, resulting in no less than a game-changing triumph, and a clear album of the year contender from this odd couple.

Review: Krautrock legends, visionary iconoclasts and one of the most influential bands of the last half century they may be, but not many folk would have had Can pegged as a singles band, given that their origins in the kaftan-clad realm of the late-'60s and early-'70s tended more to full-length explorations in which the full force of their expression could be unleashed. This triple vinyl compilation not only rubbishes this preconception but offers a glimpse into the full spectrum of sound, from the sky-kissing serenades of 'Future Days' to the dancefloor-filling swagger of 'I Want More' and even the unlikely Christmas carol 'Silent Night'. A life-affirming compilation from a gang of longhairs like no other.

Review: This may be the last chapter in what stands proud as the mightiest resurrection of a classic band in modern times, yet for all the melancholy to be suffered if this does prove to be the case, frankly, what a way to go. 'The Glowing Man' is full to bursting with the kind of panoramic soundscapes, intense existential gravitas and dramatic crescendos that have characterised Michael Gira & Co's post-2010 output, yet has restraint and subtlety to match its almighty sturm-und-drang - these colossal songs triumph just as much through their dynamics and beauty as their volume and brute force, crowning a startling achievement a singular and overwhelming primal force deserving of awe aplenty.

Review: Where were you seven years ago? School? High school? College? First job? Last job? Whatever the answer it's certainly not the same place as Efterklang were, and still are. The Danish trio have never been of this world, yet give us so many opportunities to consider the emotion and passion this world offers. The first album to be fully written in their native tongue accentuates those qualities - dreamy soundscapes, different and decidedly bewitching intonation. It's an epic journey, with the likes of "Uden Ansigt" among the most epic, like Bon Iver's vocals slow dancing with the soaring instrumentation of Sigur Ros. "Havet Lofter Sig" ups the beauty, fittingly on the shortest track - gentle pianos, unnaturally pitched backing voices and baritone lead creating real yearning, proving nothing great lasts forever. Or longer than a couple of minutes. Cutting to the chase, it's a mesmerising work you're sure to have on repeat.

Review: It's hard not to feel moved by Swans. To quote Wayne's World, it's not just a clever name, but rather a band every bit as graceful yet ferocious, beautiful but strong as the bird borrowed from. Take "Annaline", for example. As the first track-proper of this spellbinding collection it's a stop-you-in-your-tracks masterpiece that could force silence on a stadium despite being softly spoken, subtle and serene. It's a motif the outfit seem focused on for this, their 15th studio album. Even at its loudest, title track "Leaving Meaning" mostly plays out like a deranged sermon in some temple of experimental rock. "Sunfucker", for example, has enough reversed-out refrains to make anyone feel they might be in over their head with forces they can't see, let alone comprehend. "It's Coming It's Real" is a display of dark hypnosis. "The Hanging Garden" paints nervous abstract pictures with psychedelic-leaning guitar hooks and manic vocal cries. Put simply, it's perhaps their tensest, most introverted and spellbinding work to date.

Tangerine Reef, their eleventh and latest set, sees them back in experimental mode, delivering a range of fluid, liquid soundscapes inspired by their work with art-science filmmakers Coral Morphologic. All of the album's music was written to soundtrack a film by the latter duo, which can be watched in full on Animal Collective's website. Aurally, the album is indicative of the slowly shifting visuals - built around time-lapse style footage of coral growing - and tends towards the dreamy, otherworldly and drowsy.

Review: Belated vinyl issue of the excellent second LP from Musiccargo for the Dusseldorf fanatics! It may well be the seventh release on Emotional Response, but the label happy Stuart Leath will tell anyone in close proximity that the Musiccargo pairing of Gerhard Michel and Gordon Pohl were largely inspirational in his decision to start the label. Probably most widely known for the early appearance on James Holden's DJ Kicks mix of their remix of "Disco" by Grackle, Musiccargo are modern day exponents of the Krautrock sound pioneered by Dusseldorf acts like Can, Cluster and Neu. Harmonie arrives some four years after the duo's highly sought after debut album Hand In Hand and the six track album is a sumptuous 'adult kraut' delight from start to end.

It cooks up impressively abrasive and caustic textures, crashing waves of white noise and sonorous pulses that speak of a future dystopian world. Tense and absorbing throughout, the lo-fi design and elements of post punk, post industrial and post techno makes it a modern analogy of the likes of Throbbing Gristle. 12 years later, the record sounds just as good, and arguably even more prescient in these twitchy times of digital surveillance, social anxieties and worldwide political tensions. It might be bleak, then, but that doesn't mean there is real beauty in this album's disharmony.

Review: Since leaping to more electronic ground with 2015's 'Dilate', Vessels' futuristic latest offering 'The Great Distraction' sees them plotting a course through neon-lit, industrial flecked music with its feet firmly in both post-rock and IDM, ambitiously drawing from and blending elements of the two. Highlight single 'Radiart' burns slowly, stacking up pulsating and hypnotic layers akin to Immunity era Jon Hopkins. Other tracks, such as opener 'Mobilise' and 'Position' take a more intense and polyrhythmic approach, repurposing their previous math-rock work. The production goes from feeling cavernous to incredibly close, and these deft shifts in space succeed in highlighting the build-ups and the peaks that punctuate the album. Though Vessels' sound may have changed lanes, this is an engrossing and panoramic album by a band not content with resting on their laurels.

Review: Back in 2018, experienced experimentalist Stephen O'Malley headed to Paris to perform a specially commissioned piece inspired by "The Guidebook Of Church Burners", an intriguing, limited edition book that apparently "explores and transforms into an abstract narration of the multiple facets of black metal iconography and history". Here that performance finally gets a release, with the continuous recording split into two parts to fit the vinyl format. It features O'Malley delivering fuzzy, sometimes discordant guitar riffs with the aid of various effects pedals. It's intense and otherworldly, with the guitarist layering sustained chords upon echoing notes to create a raw, unsettling wall of sound.

Review: For a generation who grew up in the '90s, the work of Tim Gane in Stereolab was often as much of an introduction to krautrock as that sound's actual progenitors. Yet this was only one string to his bow, with the band also traversing genre as effortlessly with abstract electronica as with tropicalia or French chanson. Gane now dwells in Berlin, and Cavern Of Anti-Matter marks his first bona side band project since Stereolab's breakup, enlisting the help of guest luminaries like Sonic Boom and Deerhunter's Bradford Cox for a vivid selection of delirious forays into the unknown that touch on sci-fi, techno and retro electronic tropes yet can't help but bear all the hallmarks of Gane's finest and most restless work.

The New York-based Californian multi-instrumentalist has spent the last decade sauntering between labels, releasing a string of well-regarded albums in the process. On The Echoing Green is his second full-length for Mexican Summer. It sees him expertly blurring the boundaries between drone, ambient and dub techno, presenting a range of cuts that flit between clandestine moodiness, sparkling beauty and mood-enhancing bliss. Check, for example, the shoegaze-influenced brilliance of "Echoing Green" and "Tenderness", the distorted, intergalactic noise of "Vulgar Latin" and the layered field recordings of "Door To Night".

Review: Breaking from their exceptional soundtrack work of late, the infallible Scottish post-rock behemoth Mogwai have returned to the studio for their ninth full-length. 'Every Country's Sun' is a whirlwind album whose sheer impact hinges on its powerful use of contrast, most likely evident of their recent film and television score work. Passages of atmospheric calm give way to loud cascading floods of aggression without sounding trite, forced or clumsy, and a more polished use of electronics further accentuates the band's tonal variety. From the spatial futuristic opener 'Coolverine' to the album's grinding and mechanical climax, 'Every Country's Sun' feels like a score for a film not yet made, following all the highs, lows, twists and turns of narrative told by a band continuing to showcase their deft and controlled writing.

Review: The Canadian sonic soothsayers here deal out their shortest, and most immediate record since their 1997's debut, yet for all its 40-minute brevity, there's no shortage of the kind of monolithic intensity that the band have become renowned for. As orchestral and elegiac as it triumphantly amp-abusing, "Asunder..." is a masterclass in windswept atmospherics, powerful dynamics and apocalyptic grandeur, building to a climax with enough emotional heft to shake any listener's world on its axis. Existing more than ever outside of genre and comparison, Godspeed continue to inhabit an awe-inspiring sonic landscape that is theirs and theirs alone.

Review: To describe "Pyroclasts" as an album would be misleading. It's certainly as commanding as any LP you'll hear this month, but running at just four tracks, and with the focus on mood rather than conventional ideas such as songcraft, it's really meant to be heard in one long, tripped-out listening session where each of the pieces meld into one huge overture. The result of a practice routine attendees of the Life Metal sessions at Electrical Audio took part in during mornings and evenings, it tells you everything there is to know when someone says "musical participants would gather and work through a 12 minute improvised modal drone", giving a chance for people to "greet each other and the space through the practice of sound immersion." Deep, guttural, distorted, expansive and riddled with discordant melodies, if you listen out for them, it stops short of white noise but guitars rarely make for such meditative scores.

Review: Some four years have passed since Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley last donned the Sunn O))) alias. Given that the Seattle duo is also approaching 20 years as a working partnership, "Life Metal" - which also includes significant contributions from bassist Tim Midyett and Icelandic composer (and former Pan Sonic member) Hildur Gudnadottir - seems like a timely release. An epic track given to each side of vinyl, this album acts as a precursor to a sister album called Pyroclasts that will be released later in 2019. The ensemble cast brilliant layers up fuzzy, elongated guitar riffs, droning, effects-laden feedback, clandestine ambient textures, electric cello and occasional spoken word vocals. The album peaks via a 25-minute closing track of breathtaking intensity and mind-altering execution, but the journey to get there is equally as impressive. It's a wall of sound that only the safe ears of Steve Albini, produced entirely using analog tape, could deliver. An eighth studio album that's a beast of nebulous lustre.

The deadpan vocals add more layers of pressure to tracks like "He Is Afraid & So Am I" while "Weird Dancing In All-night I" is a more exotic and intoxicating bit of dance floor weirdness.

Review: Given that "power trio" Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi have released numerous acclaimed albums on Black Truffle, it seems fitting that they've returned with a new set to mark the label's 50th release. The five tracks - all of which boast suitably epic titles - were actually recorded in 2015 as part of a now near legendary performance at Tokyo venue SuperDeluxe, though this is the first time the recordings have been released. Musically, what we get is a raw, distorted and intense blend of skittish, loose-limbed drums, fuzzy bass, screeching guitars, spooky Hammond organ lines, wild aural textures (a by-product of their extensive use of effects pedals) and bi-lingual vocals from Haino. It's a pretty sweaty and out-there affair, but the energy and intensity is infectious.

The Norwegian heads blew many of us away with their 2018 debut album, 'Windborne', and seem intent on continuing to deliver the same powerhouse fare on this next long form offering. Psychedelic progressive rock fusion is one label that has been used in the past, and we'd struggle to summarise the work better. Comprising six grand and ambitious tracks, it's easy to start reaching for jazz-y references given the freeform feel of this collection.'"Shades Of Yes' are just about audible on opener 'Worlds Together', the appropriately titled 'Mountain' is a huge affair that grows and builds to a staggering scale, while the likes of 'Worlds Apart' reveal Kanaan's ability to deliver bonafide steel and concrete heaviness with those guitars.

With the 15-minute album opener "Coming Of Age" a mountain of production in itself, Molly right now are hitting their peak.

Taking the time to do nothing but sit back and sink deep into this album is a pleasure you will thank yourself for: its pastoral synths slowly wash over you while muted pads gently unfold, evolve and evaporate as barely-there voices from the Kopavogsdaetur Choir come in and out of focus next to smeared strings from Icelandic quartet Amiina.

Review: New this week is the debut album from Coral Rose as The Silver Field, an abstract and experimental, ambient excursion through the more bizarre lands of post-psyche rock. Recorded in Rose's bedroom the LP follows recent releases on O Genesis by Daniel O'Sullivan (VELD) and Richard Youngs (Belief). The album, like its cover, represents a spread of shady colours and puts through the wash a bevy of instruments like the double bass, cello, guitar, and mandolin as beautifully finger-plucked on the album's closing title-track. Amidst drenches of reverberation and delay techniques, "Rain" itself, a highlight of the album, couldn't sound more like the fact, albeit in Rose's folk-charm style, while there's also "Dolino" for a heavier loop-making trip that lands somewhere between techno and noise. And for that sublime trip into the abyss it's all about "Moors".

Review: This collaboration between the long-locked Dylanesque troubadour and the offbeat guitar virtuoso was originally released as part of Three Lobed Records' Parallelogram series and pulls off the neat trick of playing the strengths of the twin mavericks whilst also expanding their oeuvres into pastures new - largely consisting of covers of songs by the likes of Randy Newman and Tom Prine, these wayward and beguiling extrapolations veer between the gothically compelling and the psychedelically fried, yet shot through with the maverick spark and wayward charm with which each artist has become renowned.

Review: With various snippets spliced together by Sigur Ros and Berlin and Reykjavik-based artist Kjartan Holm, this endeavour has resulted in a one-off soundtrack for a new Taiwanese dance piece titled "22- Lunar Halo" by choreographer and artistic director Cheng Tsung-lung. This exclusive Record Store Day release is made up of two epics that are both near 20 minutes long, in the form of "With Arms & Legs Moving/The Tell Tales" and "They Glow In Light/Like Coloured Glass". The former relies heavily on subtlety, with soundscapes that lull you in, and an atmosphere throughout that builds to the point of some discomfort, yet all seems to be resolved with a piano driven conclusion on the second track. This is one of two modern dance collaborations from the Icelandic post-rock legends for this year's Record Store Day, each building on the band's music, both new and existing, to create brand new works.

Our pick is the latter which is something of an intoxicating build-up, brought together by haphazard, glitchy samples that may even cross the IDM territory, before concluding with a suitably grandiose ending to an epic trip. A tough listen, for sure, but all the more rewarding.

Review: Ziggy Stardust's yet unheard instrumental album after he returned from a trip on his Gemini spaceship. Not much is known of the shadowy producer (yes, despite the compelling pitch we gave you before!) as yet, but this just adds to the mystery surrounding the release as a whole. From hazy balearica to blunted hip-hop beats, deep country-infused exotica (if we've ever heard such a thing!) to lo-slung psychedelia - it's a captivating journey from start to finish. Will certainly appeal to fans of life in the slow lane, best presented recently by Marcus Worgull and Motor City Drum Ensemble's Vermont project or pretty much anything on London's Claremont 56 imprint. Highly recommended. Tip!

Review: Taking their cues in equal part from the Thames Valley sound of the early '90s, the Rugby school of two-chord rapture birthed by Spacemen 3 and the kosmische extrapolations born in Berlin, Belfast's seven-piece Documenta deal in twilight soundscapes and widescreen effects-pedal euphoria. Collected over a year-long period of experimentation and expansion with the help of fellow Belfast visionary David Holmes, this eight-track salvo showcases a band with the wherewithal to transcend the influences that spawned them, not to mention its somewhat prosaic moniker, reaching out across new horizons above and beyond its two tags.

Review: Here's something of a treat for fans of experimental, cutting-edge jazz: a rare recording of legendary French drummer Jacques Thollot - accompanied by some of his regular musical collaborators - captured at a live performance at the Faculty of Law, Paris, in 1969. Thrillingly free and fluid, it features Thollot not only providing his usual loose and frenetic percussion, but also tape loops. The highlight is undoubtedly the epic A-side workout - a 22 minute trip into psychedelic headspace - though there are plenty of gems to be found on the flip, too, not least the atmospheric, slow-burning "2" and Stockhausen-ish, delay-laden "3".

Review: Bait E Borghi's reputation for solid darkroom dancing material isn't going anywhere given this latest stab at crafting big atmosphere from relatively stripped back ingredients. They roll, chug, build and drive a way down futurist progressive house-techno-post punk avenues, hypnotic and heavy, like the sound of a few hundred heads masked in the blue hues of stage lights. Or at least that's a running thought amid the deep moodiness of 'Entri', and when embracing the warm bounce cushioning 'North''s monstrous thud. As 'Lapena' shows, though, there's far more than that going on here. A druggy rock epic, it makes the closing space dub of 'Fa Freddo La Sera' and the King of Woolworths-esque, espionage theme-worthy downtempo spatiality of 'Cacciatore Di Prestigio' make perfect sense. In short, a treat for electronic punks everywhere.
