"Old friends new friends"

Nils Frahm’s double album Old Friends New Friends gathers together 23 solo piano tracks recorded between 2009 and 2021, almost all hitherto unreleased but, for one reason or another, omitted from previous projects. The album offers “an anatomy of all my ways of thinking musically and playing,” Frahm says, adding with a smile, “Maybe I could say it’s an album I worked on for twelve years, and finally I have enough material?”

"Vertigo of flaws: emancipation of the dissonance & temperaments in irrational waveforms"

Alongside their now trademark German krautrock motoric-beat rhythms, angular New York post-punk attitude, tripped- out 60s spy soundtrack, psyche-rock and 70s synthesizers and vocoders, here you will also hear a new cosmic spacial awareness and a truly wilful pushing of sonic boundaries as police sirens, static noise, alarms, radio signals, avant-garde voices and orchestral string quartets.

"Next is now"

Vivien Goldman's eagerly awaited Next Is Now was recorded in New York and produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb, Paul McCartney) and features ten brand new tracks, including lead single ‘Saturday Afternoon’. Says Goldman, "Quite a turn-up to be making my first album now, specially with my dear bred'ren Youth at the controls. I found I had lots to sing about and my voice has improved!"

"Celestial greens"

Vels Trio reap their jazz-fusion crop with a stellar 11-track debut album Celestial Greens on Rhythm Section International. Celestial Greens represents an exploration of a new vision of modern progressive music, consolidating their influence on the emerging UK soul and RnB scenes, whilst creating a sound that’s idiosyncratic yet accessible to any fan of electronic music.

"The paths of the clouds"

The Path of the Clouds, Marissa Nadler’s ninth solo album, is the most stylistically adventurous, lyrically transfixing, and melodically sophisticated collection of songs in her already rich discography. Gripped by wanderlust while suddenly housebound at the start of the pandemic in 2020, Nadler escaped into writing, and came back with a stunning set of songs about metamorphosis, love, mysticism and murder.

"Storm shelter"

Storm Shelter is a 6-track companion piece to his acclaimed 2020 studio album Storm Damage. The mini-album, recorded during rehearsals for the Storm Damage Tour in January 2020, is a stripped-back piano-and-vocals set that was due for release during Watt’s world tour last year before it was held up by pandemic-related postponements and the ultimate cancellation of all his shows.
