"Shadow aestethics"

Shadow Aesthetics results from a virtual arsenal of digital and analog sources operating in a complex system of origination, structuring, processing and editing. The result is a moving, articulate and complex album: music that is profoundly emotive, original, and experimental. In every way Shadow Aesthetics reveals itself as a culmination of decades of listening, performing and composing.

"Broken politics"

Following the release of her first earth-quaking single in 4 years at the beginning of August, counter-culture pop icon Neneh Cherry announces her fifth solo album Broken Politics, produced in its entirety by Four Tet. It’s a record that’s equal parts angry, thoughtful, melancholy, and emboldening, as Cherry and her collaborators continue to expand her ever-widening sonic palette to craft truly singular and potent music.

"Working class woman"

Marie Davidson’s new album turns the mirror on herself. "Working Class Woman” is the Montreal-based producer’s fourth and most self-reflective record: it’s a document of her state of mind, a reflection of the past year she’s spent living in Berlin, and a comment on the stresses and strains of operating within the spheres of dance music and club culture.

"A soundtrack for a film"

The title of this new Factory Floor record is playfully coy. These tracks were, indeed, initially conceived to score a film, specifically a 90th anniversary showing of Fritz Lang’s 1927 movie Metropolis at the London Science Museum’s IMAX screen. A Soundtrack For A Film is a hugely ambitious work, clocking in at around 150 minutes and filled with ideas.

The Canadian’s 9th solo release Konoyo, like its predecessor, Love Streams [2016] also finds Hecker drawn to acoustic instruments and collaboration with a larger ensemble or collective, this time working with the Tokyo Gakuso ensemble after commanding an Icelandic choir on his previous album. However, the results here have a different purpose, swapping out ecstatic density for an intently refined and spacious approach, allowing his processed sources to ring out beautifully un/true in a sort of parallel dimensional harmonic spectrum.

Throughout, his involving and human approach to electronic music feels more inviting and more necessary than ever.

It has a new rawness, a primal energy into which Calvi pushes the limits of her guitar and voice beyond anything she’s recorded before.

Brainfeeder is proud to present Resistance - a 2018 Funk odyssey by keyboard maestro, vocalist, composer, producer, arranger and astral traveller Brandon Coleman. A regular fixture in the Kamasi Washington band, wylin’ out on the keys or wielding his keytar, he is introduced onstage at gigs as Professor Boogie by his longtime friend and collaborator. Resistance represents a new chapter in the Funk dynasty that spans George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic and Zapp through to Dr. Dre, DJ Quik and Dam Funk as the Los Angeles resident salutes his musical heroes - Herbie Hancock, Peter Frampton, Roger Troutman - and honours their ethos of freedom and experimentation in his search for Funk’s future.

"Gave in rest"

“I’ve always been a pretty solitary person, but that summer I discovered quiet moments to be increasingly valuable,” says Davachi. “I became engaged in private practices of rest and rumination, almost to the point of ritual.” Though not religious, she sought ecclesiastic environments, sitting for hours in muted spaces and listened to how church instruments augmented them – their pipe organs, their bells, their choral voices – and resolved to “tap into that way of listening.”

Ecce Homo explores the lighter and darker shades of the human psyche, behaviour and existence, and humanity's ability to create beauty and destruction. What lies in the essence of such complexity has become a core idea for the album, while Gorgun seeks to figure out if there is a true meaning to being human, and human being.

Kenniff has housed dozens of ambient releases under the name Helios since 2004, alongside post-classical output as Goldmund, shoegaze pop with his wife Hollie as Mint Julep, and commissions for film and television. It is a reliably transportive body of work that's earned Kenniff a cult following, and a genuine modesty that’s kept him on the fringes, right where he prefers, in the dark.

The advent of technology has allowed for these songs to be recorded at home and in comfort, revealing the most personal and charming collection of songs in their careers.

"Flow state"

Tash Sultana is a dynamic young artist who has commanded world attention since homemade videos of Tash jamming went viral. A true virtuoso, Tash was soon selling out massive theaters globally and playing at the world s biggest festivals - no mean feat for an artist who just a year before was recording songs on a go pro in a bedroom. Since Tash s grandfather gifted a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style that has people lining up to see. The virtuosic playing of over 18 instruments, vocals that shine with a magical quality and the natural gift for melody that Tash possesses needs to be seen to be believed.

On one hand, it is a return to the fresh, transcendent sweep of his debut, 2010’s Gemini and on the other, a culmination of heights reached, paths traveled, and lessons learned while creating the follow-ups, Nocturne and Life of Pause.

In search of the sublime, contemporary electronic musician Steve Hauschildt has designed grids and panoramas of sound across multiple releases through the rise and dissolution of his former band, Emeralds, an American touchstone of 2000s home-recorded psychedelic noise music. Dissolvi, the artist’s first full-length with Ghostly International, engages sublimation from an ontological perspective: by dissociating the self.

"Sun on the square"

Karen Peris' gift for melodic subtlety manifests itself on a number of highlights like Green Bus and the more expansive Shadow of the Pines, two songs that dance nimbly between the dark and light places where emotions are most vulnerable. Poignant and poetic, she builds evocative vignettes out of seemingly simple scenes, describing with surprising richness the movements of her brother in the dusty afternoon light of the title song. The arrangements on these ten tracks are somewhat denser and more intricate than on the band's previous few outings, relying on rich string arrangements, horns, reverberating piano thrums and even a handful of clamorous drums - All Music Guide

"Heaven & earth"

“The world that my mind lives in, lives in my mind.” This idea inspired me to make this album Heaven & Earth. The reality we experience is a mere creation of our consciousness, but our consciousness creates this reality based on those very same experiences. We are simultaneously the creators of our personal universe and creations of our personal universe. The Earth side of this album represents the world as I see it outwardly, the world that I am a part of. The Heaven side of this album represents the world as I see it inwardly, the world that is a part of me. Who I am and the choices I make lie somewhere in between.” Kamasi Washington

It was only available via her site or CDBaby, but now I'm The One is being given a full reissue shakedown by Light In The Attic. Peacock collaborated with Salvador Dali, bought a Moog direct from Robert Moog, was confidant to Timothy Leary, and turned down an offer to tour with David Bowie, telling him to buy his own synthesizer.

"For how much longer do we tolerate
mass murder?"

Reissue of The Pop Group’s ‘For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder’ - one of the most challenging records of the post-punk era. Upon its release in 1980, For How Much Longer received mixed reviews, with publications at the center of post-punk discourse (such as the NME) dismissing its agit-prop didacticism in favor of the fevered mysticism of the group's debut album, Y.

"One for the soul"

Remastered from original tapes. Housed in heavyweight, tip on-style gatefold with essay by Vivian Goldman and download code including 2 bonus tracks “By the time poet, singer-songwriter, and artist Lizzy Mercier Descloux recorded 1984’s Zulu Rock, she’d marked herself out as both a globe trotter with more passport stamps than Tintin and a musical innovator whose loose, arty spirit could be applied to styles as varied as no wave, Bavarian oompa and Soweto jive.

"Resolutionary (Songs 1979-1982)"

Vivien Goldman went from being a musical participant of the early-'80s London-New York fusion of dub, post-punk, reggae, hip-hop and African sounds to a keen, informative critic and professor of those genres in general. This excellent album is the first collection of Goldman's brief yet vibrant musical explorations. Included among the various talents are members of the Slits, PiL, the Raincoats, Robert Wyatt, Steve Beresford, David Toop, and Adrian Sherwood. These tracks combine a pop sensibility with the avant-dub deconstructionist mindset that lends her work that rare and special mix of accessibility and experimentation.

"Always now"

Factory Benelux presents a deluxe double disc edition of Always Now, the debut album by cult Factory Records group Section 25, produced by legendary sonic architect Martin Hannett in 1981. Recorded as a trio at Pink Floyd's Britannia Row studio in London, Always Now combined austere post-punk rhythms with elements of Can, Krautrock and modern psychedelia. Key tracks include non-albums singles Charnel Ground, Je Veux Ton Amour and Girls Don’t Count. This new Factory Benelux 2xCD edition is housed in a miniature version of the folding pochette wallet designed by Peter Saville - famously one of the most expensive sleeves produced by Factory.

Ridateci il vinile, ridateci la possibilità di avere dischi che durano trenta, quaranta minuti, fatti di canzoni e brani che gli artisti hanno voluto metterci, senza inutili e insulsi riempitivi, Ridateci il vinile, ridateci un oggetto che magari si sente peggio, che non è portatile, che è grande e scomodo, ma che rappresenta la musica quanto la musica che contiene. Ridateci il vinile, che ha un valore intrinseco che nessun CD riuscirà mai ad avere. Ridateci il vinile, assieme ai file mp3 e ai Compact Disc, utili ognuno per un motivo diverso. Certo, magari guadagnerete meno, magari i clamorosi fatturati che l'industria discografica ha fatto quando è arrivato il CD non li vedrete più, ma di sicuro non perderete l'anima e il lavoro. Il lavoro lo state già perdendo, e anche l'anima, trasformandovi in venditori di magliette, poster, gadget. Venditori di diritti televisivi e radiofonici, produttori di concerti e di DVD di certo non più "discografici". Ridateci il vinile e provate a salvare il vostro, nostro, mercato della musica. Abbandonate l'idea di vendere pezzi di plastica e tornate a vendere dischi.
