New Releases 09/06/2017

Trypheme - Online Dating
Ambient techno - pretty melodic (SAW 85-92 would be the lazy reference). Pretty much everything on the Computer Processing Unit label is gold, and this is my fave this year from them.

Cubering - Soma
On the spacier end of the ambient techno spectrum. Elements of ambient dub and oodles of reverb.

Conrad Schnitzler / Pole - Wurm
Love this. Reminds me of Chiastic Slide-era Autechre.

Octo Octa Where Are We Going?
Summery house with a hint of electro.

WaqWaq Kingdom - Shinsekai
Dancehall/dub/psy - absolutely brilliant, this. Imagine if Deep Forest had grown up on a diet of dubstep.

Varg - Nordic Flora Series Pt.3
Deep, relatively dark atmospheric techno. This beat Gas as my AOTM for May.

Gas - Narkopop
Assuming you’ve heard this already.

Bola - D.E.G.
Best Bola album since Soup (I’m assuming you’ve heard Soup. If you’ve not heard Soup, sack off this list and do that instead)

John Shima - Elements Unknown
B12 are fronting a bit of an IDM revival. This fella is on their label and this EP is looovely.

Probably a load I’ve missed, but this is what came to mind. Oh, and Shackleton’s album from January. That’s great as well.


You hero :heart_eyes:

@Twinkletoes is certainly my favourite contributor to these threads, although I’ve not got enough time to hear them all, what with all my emo.

SZA (really great smooth, poppy R&B)

Agent Blå (kind of like a cheap, Makthaverskan knock-off, but still some decent tunes)

Have had a few listens over the weekend and it’s absolutely brilliant!

Thanks didn’t realise there was new SZA - will check it. Always worth popping in this thread each week!

Think all the others I intended on listening to have been mentioned, aside from Anathema.

That WaqWaq Kingdom LP had totally passed me by and on first listen is totally fucking brilliant :smiley: Couple others there I’m looking forward to checking out as well… top top posting!!

Listening to it again now. That outro to Oh it’s Good when they switch to half-speed :heart_eyes:

pleasantly surprised to see there is a new Ruby Suns album!

And that Babe Rainbow album is out! Need to catch up on these

This is superb.

All kinds of yes. Been on pretty much constant rotation so thanks again!

I also share your exact opinion on that Varg LP - properly brilliant. The idea of anything trumping a (very fucking decent) GAS record for the month is basically laughable, yet somehow, the more time goes on…

1 Like tells me I have listened to it 13 times so far. It’s making me very happy.
