First roundup of new music that is coming out this September – compiled with a little help from our followers!
Electric Capablanca – Puzzles & Studies (Kit Records)
Turn the dials to creak splinters of 70s Italian midi classical (Venosta, Musci), imagined mitteleuropa ambient (Froese, Popol Vuh) and spiritual mathematics from the old new world (Spiegel, Hassell, Riley).
Nahawa Doumbia – La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Vol 1 (Awesome Tapes from Africa)
Nahawa Doumbia is one of Mali’s defining vocalists of the last four decades. Her work journeys through progressive stages of musical evolution and sonic vogues, making it hard to summarize or even comprehend.
Magma – Zëss (Music on Vinyl / Seventh Records)
Magma’s newest album Zëss is a 38-minute musical work by Christian Vander. The album is available September 20th as a limited edition of 1500 numbered copies on gold coloured vinyl. The package includes a 4-page booklet. @MagmaOfficiel
Orphax – Live Circles (Moving Furniture Records)
Circles is a work, or composition, that I have been performing live for a few years now in various instances. I consider this work as a growing composition which with every performance grows in a new direction. There is no beginning and no end, and as such it can continue changing over the years.
Kal Marks – Let The Shit House Burn Down (Exploding in Sound)
Kal Marks are probably what Pixies would have sounded like in their heyday, had they missed their shot at commercial success and instead slogged through the anxieties and poverty of reducing their passion to a mere moonlighting gig. – Flood Magazine
Gridfailure / Feel Happiness Split (Self Released)
Static and metal drones effortlessly blend with mournful guitars that would make any basement-dwelling black metaller weep in agonized joy. You can practically smell the mildew growing with each dank, DSBM-soaked second. -Toilet ov Hell

Benoît Pioulard – May / Atra (Past Inside the Present)
Picture yourself in a boat on a river, as the song goes. Benoit Pioulard solidifies the carelessness of an idle day with May / Atra, an LP as blissful as the day is long. Limited to a worldwide release of 200 copies, ambient label and music blog Past Inside The Present give first utterance to Pioulard’s formless craft, the boundless expanse of materials melting away as time elapses gently into memory. –BLEEP
Beautifully mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll.
Faux Pas / Uncle Buzzard Split (Come Play With Me)
Odd Nosdam – Flippies Best Tape (Home Assembly)
Dilla’s ‘Donuts’, since its release in 2006, has deservedly been regarded as the benchmark for adventurous beat-tape construction.
With ‘Flippies’, Odd Nosdam picks up the blueprint and takes aim at the next level.
The Central Office of Information – The Central Office of Information (Castles in Space)
Castles in Space presents a unique new album by Kent based artist, Alex Cargill who records as ‘The Central Office Of Information’.
Alex has been obsessed with electronic music since 1985, when he received a Casio PT-80 keyboard for his 10th birthday. A quick learner, he rapidly became an accomplished keyboard and guitar player and hugely inspired by eIectro and hip hop, he started to produce dancefloor-orientated techno, house, breakbeat, acid, drum n’ bass, electronica, glitch, trip hop and dubstep, as well as some forays into ambient and dub – all initially on a Playstation – in 1999.
Loraine James – For You and I (Hyperdub)
Loraine James was enticed into the world of music making through her mother, who would go from playing the steel pans to blaring out music from Metallica to Calypso. Having grown up in Enfield, London, she credits the multiculturalism in the city for “broadening my mind and ears”, having listened to jazz, electronica, uk drill and grime, and the results of this exposure can be heard on the mix-up of For You And I.

VVV – Entanglement (aurawire)
Iranian-born, Austin-based electronic producer VVV (aka Shawhin Izaddoost) returns to aurawire with his third full-length album, Entanglement. Following up 2017’s Shadow World (Holodeck) and 2011’s Across The Sea (Fortified Audio) as well as a series of mixtapes, EPs and collaborations, Izaddoost brings his signature mixture of garage and ambience to aurawire with his first solo release on the label and perhaps most polished work to date.
Period Bomb / Glass Body Split (Crass Lips Records)
Miami’s Period Bomb brims over with sound and fury, and with a purpose.
Glass Body is from Miami as well.
Pushflowers – Close for Comfort (Forged Artifacts)
Surprise! Preorders for our next release are now live. @qohelethnoise’s soundtrack for “Black and White Electric Light” will be out next week, Sept. 3 on digital and limited edition cassette. Only 20 copies, so act fast. https://t.co/w7qxwKgNEV

Coming soon – two excellent remixes of tracks from your friendly neighbourhood Sunbane…
I haven’t heard the rest of the album yet, but if it’s anywhere near as good as what Scedau and @DevrasPlexi did for my pieces then we’re in for a proper treat.
Put it on your ears for £5.

what a COOL way to bring this all together! @silberspy has collected all the August field recording series [including a truly bizarre night captured by myself] into one MAMMOTH DOWNLOAD. Environments galore, can you handle? 😉https://t.co/efIYDyxudf

LOCAL TIME – new compilation of international artists on Noise Bombing. I have a track on here with my band Overleaf. Feedback and samples and sax, oh my! https://t.co/tHv61QaHZi
