Death Of The Moon & Other Early Works
Rune Lindblad
Fantome Phonographique
Mysterious, ectoplasmic, heavier-than-a-death-in-the-family tone-poems/prophecies by Swedish composer and painter Rune Lindblad (b.1923), recorded in the mid-late 1950s but sounding thrillingly and implausibly now-ish – in all seriousness you wouldn’t bat an eyelid if someone told you they were products of the…

Steven Stapleton & David Tibet
United Dirter

Future Print
De Fabriek
Post-Materialization Music
More deranged rhythmic brainstorms from De Fabriek - a tiny wee re-run of 1982’s “Future Print” - a near invisible glob of 80s cassette gristle skulking around the dense and blistered shadow of their IMMENSE industrial //experimental back catalogue -…

SouffleContinu
TOP tier sound exploration from saxophonist  Philippe Mate and Daniel Vallancien; Mate submitting his beloved saxophone to a thorough sieving and steaming by his pal DV and his maverick engineering prowess - Vallancien, a seeming lynchpin of the whole 70s…

Max Brand Studie IV - T O P I A
Essential harbour city sorrows and nightmare, electro-bubblebaths in the Hamburg docklands, top synth physician Felix Kubin and his Max Brand hash out their differences to create two spacious, long-form oscillations of rasping analogue textures for the walking wounded. The two…
