via New Pollution
Keith Fullerton Whitman – Private Performance Public Rehearsal (Self Released)
Intended as a double-cassette release, this suite of music; conceived, actualized, spatialized, & recorded in Quad over a Funktion-One array in a room in Athens’ Exarchia district over a 3-day period, is an attempt to blur the hard, systemic lines between focused & unfocused listening.
Yellow Magic Orchestra – Loom (A&M Records / Alfa / SMEJ)
More japanbient. This time from Yellow Machine Orchestra.
Ohsaurus – Salt Mine EP (Fuselab)
Ok folks! Summer hole proceeds though we’re still moving. So today Fuselab is launching a fresh EP by our good mate out of US – Ohsaurus – BTW a head of Grappa Frisbee records.
This time Chris produces a space-rolled electro-hop joint based on classic 80s sci-fi motifs, raw bass, chunky IDM melodies and some kind of bright epic flow. You might say “again”, but what’s really original here – those toytronic vibes to make everyone moving their fingers along with old-school techniques to make you remember something old-good.
Brainiac – This Little Piggy (Touch and Go, 1996/2019)
Hissing prigs in static couture is still mad inspiring imo
SUSS – Ghost Box (Expanded) (Northern Spy Records)
What would it sound like if ambient pioneer Brian Eno had produced the Western film scores of Ennio Morricone? We’ll never know, but we’re now a step closer thanks to Ghost Box, the debut album by SUSS, a quintet whose members have worked in various capacities with Lydia Lunch, the B-52s, k.d. Lang, David Bowie, John Cale, Ed Sheeran, Wilco, Norah Jones, The War On Drugs, Burt Bacharach, the Nickelodeon network, The New Yorker, and countless others.
Subinev’S Exploding Motives Symphony Orchestra – BGB/BRB Duo (Self Released)
started an ambient acoustic noise duo with my 1 1/2 year old. anybody wanna sign us?

Kali Malone – Cast of Mind (Hallow Ground)
Rakta – Falha Comum (Nada Nada Discos / Iron Lung Records)
With a slight line up change in the drum department we see RAKTA tighten up their more tense, soundtrack natured developments alongside their more sparse and vulnerable elegance. They consistently manage to create a tripped out creep chamber with room to explore as the aura builds to nightmare crescendos juxtaposed with shaking silences. Simultaneously eerie and serene. – Jensen Ward

Recent Rocket Recording releases…
Gnoomes, the Russian outfit who blend a potent mix of psychedelic stargaze, kraut techno and kosmiche pop return with a brand new album, MU! their third for Rocket Recordings.
Formed by the talented musicians of Swedish bands Hills and GOAT, DJINN foray into numerous quarters on a far-reaching metaphysical quest lasting the course of this record. It’s a psychic travelogue which frequently encompasses full-throttle free jazz – as in the blistering ‘My Bank Account’, with its echoes of the transcendent extrapolations of Albert Ayler, and the more loose ‘Algäbannem’, which nods to the demolition derby that John Coltrane and drummer Rashied Ali engaged in via ‘Interstellar Space’.
London-based psychedelic stalwarts Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation are proud to reveal their third album ‘Sacred Dreams’ for Rocket Recordings. Continuing to dive into the deeper waters of experimentation, ‘Sacred Dreams’ is both a musically hefty amalgamation of reverb drenched space-rock and retro centric electronics, as well as an emotionally cathartic release for the band, marking a new direction and fresh approach.
Weaving a dense and beguiling tapestry of drone-based hypnosis, mantric vocal chants and ritualistic folk along with field recordings from a trip the members made to India, this band also inadvertently plots our a map from the experimental music of the early-‘70s to the present, alighting on a myriad touchstones on the way.
Yet tempting through it may be to place ‘För Meditation’ amidst the uniquely Swedish lineage of primal and arcadian Psychedelia that began with artists like Arbete Och Fritid, Träd, Gras och Stenar and International Harvester, the band are keen to emphasize that inspiration arrives at Centrum from all quarters. “From Pandit Pran Nath to Trees, from Velvet Underground to Popol Vuh, anything and everything.
Pentagram Home Video – Who’s Here? I’m Here, You’re Here (Self Released)
Very small batch of remaining copies of Pentagram Home Video ‘Who’s Here? I’m Here, You’re Here’ on cassette available now from
@Bandcamp. A night in the bars & clubs from the world of CRUISING transposed to an era of ether rag-fuelled acid house & goth.
LTO – Storybook (Injazero Records)
While plaudits for LTO have tended to focus their praise on No Pasa Nada’s tense and eerie programming, its deep sonics and waves of static, Storybook gives us access to the beating heart within the machine. It is an album not purely of mechanics, but also of human warmth, formed with a colour palette of equal digital and organic materials.
Nudity – Astronomicon (Iron Lung Records)
Krautriffpsych jams like fantasy team up of Judas Priest, MC5, Flower Traveling Band, Circle, and Hawkwind from an Olympia supergroup of Need, Tight Bros/Behead the Prophet, Hysterics, and Broken Water members. Playing tonight in a slightly different lineup.
Scott Walker – Angels Of Ashes (Phillips, 1969 / Fontana, 1995)
6 from ‘69
