🦞 New releases 24 Nov 23 🦞

Sunken Foal - Reveal in Finder
New LP from my favorite Irish IDM producer, and his first on Front End Synthetics records (the first not on his own label since his 2008 debut on Planet Mu).

I like the Songwhip links but I miss being able to sample things directly in the thread with the Bandcamp embeds. Anyway here’s a songwhip link.


Really liked Wurld Series’ last album, they nail the 90s college rock guitar sound that I’m a sucker for. New one sounds like more of the same upon first impression.


Ciel - Homesick

Debut album from Xi’an born, Toronto based electronic producer / DJ. Traditional Chinese instruments mix with analogue beats and samples A mix of house, electro, drum & bass and downtempo. Recommended!


New single by Midas fall

Midas Fall - Cold waves divide us

Post rock with a singer who sounds a bit like Tori Amos.


Don Leisure feat Amanda Whiting - Beyond the Midnight Sun

Downbeat nu jazz from Don Leisure featuring Welsh harpist Amanda Whiting. Some nice laid back vibes here.


took a punt at their older album, really nice stuff

A couple of late entries which I’m really enjoying:

Musta Huone - Valosaasteen sekaan

Kinda doomy experimental kosmische stuff? Here’s what the press release for the Helsinki quartet says:

"The music of Musta Huone, Ville-Matti Koskiniemi (guitar & vocals), Joonas Paasiala (drums), Santeri Paasiala (bass), & Pietu Arvola (synths and noise) is difficult to pin down. What started off in mid-2010s as a primitive lo-fi duo drawing from punk and black metal influences, has developed into a free-roaming hybrid mutation soaking inspiration from kraut rock, 90’s alternative and noise rock and experimental electronic music. "

fabric presents Sama’ Abdulhadi

Long running mix series hands over the reins to Palestinian producer Sama. Her mix starts off with quite minimalist percussive techno and then gets bigger.

this is very lovely

Pleasurewood - They Live

Paul Elliott and Anthony Donje’s collaboration as Pleasurewood is named after a Suffolk theme park; this album “is a trip through a cinematic funk-o-rama of French inspired 60’s and 70’s gauche TV beats and 70’s and 80’s Simla beat Mumbai synth rock”.

Real Lies have just put out a new ep


This is really nice.

Confusingly I saw a band called Ciel supporting Blood Red Shoes recently but this is not the same Ciel

The Woodleigh Research Facility - Phonox Nights

Totally missed this posthumous Andrew Weatherall release, the third and final album with long-time collaborator Nina Walsh under their Woodleigh Research Facility name, which they were working on at the time of Weatherall’s death in 2020. Atmospheric dubby electro.

There’s at least 3 current artists named Ciel, which is weird as it’s a bit of a nothing name
