The Necks - Body [Fish Of Milk / ReR Megacorp]

Put on the circuit as a split effort between the labels Fish Of Milk and ReR Megacorp on August 14th, 2k18 is "Body", the latest full on body of work created by the instrumental trio that is The Necks. Catering the 20th full-length album in their career the band presents another epic, that means approx. 57 minutes, one track effort which starts out on a deep, emotional PostRock- / Ambient-tip sporting playful, intricate piano melodies, panoramic strings and a DarkJazz-oriented, slowly floating rhythm signature before drifting into organic Deep Listening territories, meandering in between tension and mystique carried by simple, yet magic piano chords and levitating electronics before spiralling acoustic guitar strumming introduces the compositions next sequence around minute 21 or so.  Over the further course of "Body" The Necks progress into powerful, still piano driven instrumental Rock / Jazz Rock, suddenly breaking down into beautiful, calm melancholia around minute 40, waving farewell on a wave of single piano notes and sunset atmospheres for the remaining 16 minutes. Lovely.

Omsk Information & Dr. Walker - Mescaline Muzzikkk [Nona Records 018]

Released via the Czech imprint Nona Records in mid-May 2k18 is the wonderful cassette tape album "Mescaline Muzzikkk" which sees Liquid Sky Berlin head honcho Dr. Walker teaming up with long time friend and collaborator Omsk Information for an epic, nearly 70 minutes spanning live session on the occasion of the 303 Day celebrations at Berlin's #lsb02.  Bringing forth the best of Ambient / ChillOut in its most experimental sense, exploring free floating polyrhythmic electronic structures and heavily altered, possibly field recorded vocal samples alongside subaquatic sonic drifts and ever varying liquid layers of sound that might be bordering genres like IDM / Intelligent Techno at some point despite being completely unique and existing in a enclosed universe of their own bringing forth atmospheric Drone and DeathAmbient structures, defying the restriction of regular space and time whilst only being comparable to other releases from the Liquid Sky-cosmos which has brought us labels like XXC3 or legendary projects like G.E.N. / Global Electronic Network in the past. If these are familiar names to you or if you still dig Scanner's classic 1994-released "Mass Observation" LP on Ash International this is defo a must have for you. Period.

Sascha Müller - Blue Room [SMSM 024]

Scheduled for release on September 9th, 2k18 is Sascha Müller's forthcoming digital single named "Blue Room"  which brings us two tracks or 13 minutes of electronic joy, starting with "Joucy Acid", an amalgamation of cheesy FilterHouse / FrenchTouch and a hint of lively Acid modulation whilst "Get Up For Your Love", the second cut on this one, weighs in soulful, fast-paced VocalHouse with a sweet latin touch and a well seductive disco-bassline for ecstatic high energy hours on a peak time dancefloor.

Kammerflimmer Kollektief - There Are Actions Which We Have Neglected And Which Never Cease To Call Us [Bureau B Promo]

Set for release via Bureau B on September 21st, 2k18 via Bureau B is the new Kammerflimmer Kollektief-album with the epic, and presumably way too long, title "There Are Actions Which We Have Neglected And Which Never Cease To Call Us" which caters a bunch of seven brand new songs or 'actions' all coming with a title and a place associated with it. Opening with "Action 1: Lucid, Imperial Beach" we see Kammerflimmer Kollektief starting their journey on a droney, crackling and slightly distorted 10+ minutes UnAmbient tip leading into deep, fiddly yet deeply melancholia-infused PostPostRock effort whilst "Action 2: Discharged, Quauhnahuac" brings forth a sparse, slightly naturalistic feel alongside klaxon'esque background guitars and heaps of little, yet buzzing complex movements and detailed, scraping string abuse before unleashing more of an structured (not structured) chaotic vibe with loads of distortions whilst "Action 3: Thoughtless, Hamburg" brings on a deep, mostly unaltered take on calm, beautiful and dreamy PostRock for genre connaisseurs. Furthermore "Action 4: Wasted, Ivano-Frankivsk" presents more of a laid back, dubbed out twang for hot afternoons spent on the beach, "Action 5: Resplendent, Bolinas" starts out on heavy, cut-up Noize distortion before a sudden plot twist turns the tune towards more dubby PostRock lazyness, "Action 6: Vigilant, Jerichow" provides more deep, twangy experimentation and melancholia before the concluding "Action 7: Blessed, Ermenoville" dabbles with more of a multilayered, intertwined DesertRock feel for a sweet, bluesy closure. Interesting, yet not as fascinating as their previous album "Desarroi".

Vanessa Tomlinson - The Space Inside [A Guide To Saints]

Scheduled for release on A Guide To Saints on September 7th, 2k18 is Vanessa Tomlinson's "The Space Inside", a thirty minute cassette release, in which the Australian percussionist delivers two lengthy tracks closing around 15 minutes mark. The A-side sees "Waiting For The Passing - For Solo Bass Drum" presenting a thundering, reverberating musical approach that seems to amalgamate deep Ambient droning with large scale wobbling metal sheets forming a coherent yet alienating sound universe of its own whereas "The Space Inside - For Solo Tam Tam" indulges in a stretched out , sterile Cold Ambient scape, slowly moving metallic drones and overall sci-fi feel, referring to a desolate, post-apocalyptic future yet to come.  Check.

Olivia Block - 132 Ranks [Room40 Promo]

Scheduled for release via the Australian imprint Room40 is Olivia Block's most recent album "132 Ranks" which was composed as a commissioned piece for LAMPO and The Renaissance Society between 2016 and 2017. Premiered at the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel in Chicago as a hybrid between concert and sound installation we see Olivia Block present a 49 minutes one track piece that's starting on a slow build-up from near silence levels bringing forth atmospheric sounds and bass-focused drones from afar, mixing those up with fragile, tender high frequency sinewave transmissions before finally making an evolutionary move into braincell-crushing vintage sci-fi Ambient structures that could well function as a B- or C-movie score with its intense organ vibrations and minimalist melodic fragments whilst turning towards calmer, less artificial vibes around minute 21 to ride this warm, organic wave to very end of the album, partly accompanied by highly dramatic interludes and tender, crystalline chords for a deeply harmonic touch. Defo one worthwhile to add to your collection of long running Ambient albums for sure.

Dr. NoiseM - Studio Works 29 [Dr. NoiseM Tapes]

Set for release on September 12th, 2k18 via his very own Dr. NoiseM Tapes-imprint is Dr. NoiseM's forthcoming six track album "Studio Works 29" which is catering a whole of six brand new tracks rolled out over the course of nearly 80 minutes playtime. Starting with the approx. 37 minutes of "Drone City" the mysterious producer brings forth a heavy, haunting load of ever meandering Cold- / DeathAmbient from the blackest exoterrestrial underground vaults, "Eine Katze Tod" is a dark'ish, minimalist and well hypnotic reference to the 2012-released dmvssm / Sascha Müller split tape on Pharmacom records which was limited to 27 hand-numbered copies worldwide whilst "Napalm Death" weighs in lively, yet braincell shredding fast-paced digital Noize for those who like going to extremes in their musical experiences. With "Poker Noise" Dr. NoiseM provides more of an alien-like, sci-fi approach to Noise-driven ethereal Ambient with far away echoes of (Neo)Cosmic Synth beauty, "Posthuman" caters to those loving the desolate isolationist Death Ambient-sound of his 'The CDr A-B-C"-series and the final cut named "Roboshocks" provides a high dosage of decaying, futuristic digital Noize and off-kilter computational machines for a B-rated sci-fi movie yet unwritten and -produced. Good stuff, this.

P.T.B.S & Sascha Müller - Chicago Is Everywhere [SMPTB004]

Scheduled for release on August 26th, 2k18 is the latest collaboration between Uelsen-based underground producer P.T.B.S. and Meppen's Sascha Müller. Opening with "Chicago Is Everywhere *Original Mix" the pair explores a slow, tool'ish, yet functional and pounding take on classic, stripped down House music with more of a mid-90s New York-feel whilst "Chicago Is Everywhere *Sascha Müller Acid House Mix" adds a decent bubbly Acid-line to the deep vibes of the original cut and therefore wins the race for being our  favorite tune on this digital two track single.

Møster! - States Of Minds [Hubro Music]

Scheduled for release on the Norwegian Hubro Music-imprint on September 7th, 2k18 is "States Of Minds", the new double album effort created by Møster!, a massive band outfit created by sax player Kjetil Møster which features members of the well-known Motorpsycho as well as other greats on the bill. Going in with an overall menu of ten tracks spread over two CD's Møster! opens with "Brainwave Entraiment", a 20 minutes monster of a tune dabbling in score'esque vintage synths as well as in krautsy, yearning, experimental Progressive Rock-realms whilst even incorporating elements of Dub and, somehow, Ska elements as well as deep listening Ambient breakdowns whereas the follow up "Unhorsed By Chivalry" brings on a dubbed out fusion of complex, thundering drum Funk and electronic elements as well as heavy guitar distortions and tripped out SpaceJazz before "Plate Sized Eyes" weighs in 64 seconds of off-kilter slide guitar twang. Furthermore we see "Mystere" taking on solid, down-to-earth instrumental Desert Rock and "Bow Shock" providing full on fiddly experimentation with drums, guitar and loads of echoes and reverb. Going into the second disc the 22+minutes main piece "Life Wobble" starts out on a loose, rhythmic base both infused by Jazz Noir and marching drums sporting dreamy space guitars and - well... - wobbly, organic bass waves for the mind turning into a maelstrom'esque experience over the course of the tracks evolution, the "Phantom Bandotron" unleashes a surprisingly twangy, relaxed and partly even Easy Listening-infused BarJazz / Downtempo vibe and "Sounds Like A Planet" indeed comes across as a swampy, extraterrestrial sci-fi sound experience of an experimental kind. With "Mon Plaisir" Møster! caters more deep, laid back relaxation for hot summer days and the final cut "What A Flop Waking Up" even explores some kind of multi-layered tribalisms in combination with modified sax and clarinet outings to a well fever'ish effect. A lot to take in here, yet a well interesting musical construct  for sure.

Various Artists - Psycho Kidzzz Vol. 5 [Psychocandies 070]

Scheduled for August 23rd, 2k18 on Psychocandies is the labels fifth full on various artists compilation album entitled "Psycho Kidzzz Vol. 5" which caters a sweet bag of ten tracks for all Acid lovers out there starting with P.T.B.S. And Hammed Maliq's "Borrooo (Sascha Müller Acid Bro Remix)", a bouncy, haunting and slightly mechanical take on raw AcidHouse whilst 4ZZZ1's "Pilldriver" combines morphing MonoTechno synths with a kind of sci-fi Tribal vibe and Sascha Müller's "Time Range" is quite a fest for a lovers of quality, fast paced HardTrance for warehouse raves and is one of Mr. Müller's best oldskool productions in a two decades spanning career for sure. "Eject The System" is another 4ZZZ1 production focusing on experimental ElectroGlitch, "Untitled 4" by Frog Bitch is a well distorted, uncompromising lesson in grinding Techno, the 'Acid Machine Mix' of Sascha Müller's "I Have A Sampler" gives us a filtered hint of floating AcidTrance and 3CloneB returns with "On Range", a lively, positive RaveTechno banger for peaktime sets. With "Acid Acapella_12" Sascha Müller provides a screaming Acid line tool for all adventurous DJ's out there, 4ZZZ1's "We Go" balances the thin line between harsh MonoAcid and tribalistic Techno with massive rave signals and the final cut - Sascha Müller's "Kenmodo" - evokes memories of Acid / Rave greats like Emmanuel Top for all those who've already been around in the 90s. Recommended!

MAP 71 - Void Axis [Fourth Dimension Records / Foolproof Projects]

To be released as a collaborational effort between Fourth Dimension Records and Foolproof Projects on September 3rd, 2k18 is "Void Axis", the fourth album created by Brighton-based duo MAP 71 which are catering a new serving of nine tracks within a little less than 40 minutes runtime, opening with the galloping vintage synth meets intense Spoken Word (No)Wave-cut "Primary Radioaction" followed by "The Prefab", a stripped down, hypnotic homage to the Ingenious Dilettantes movement as well as "Nuclear Landscapes" employing thundering drums and a well postapocalyptic feel for a reason. With "The Future Edge" we see MAP 71 travel forward in time, bringing on a cold and well sci-fi feel whilst  "Minimal Bridget" brings forth heavy, war drums and brutal barrage fire for an ultimate apocalypse before "Armour And Ecdysis" provides more of a multi-layered, postapocalyptic edge of madness for those who can take it. Furthermore "Neonsignquietlife" is quite a hit for advanced SynthWave- / (No)Wave-dancefloors, "21-12" drifts on into a cold, abstract beat foundation and robotic vibes as well as abstract Chicago House-references synthwise before the final "Skeleton Gang" provides the projects take on echo-heavy, dubbed out, yet noisy musical madness. Highly recommended!

Tajak - Ciclos [Buh Records Promo]

Scheduled for release via the Peruvian imprint Buh Records on September 15th, 2k18 is "Ciclos", the latest album outing created by the Mexican band outfit Tajak which is one of the brand names in the Psych, Stoner and Shoegaze scene in Latin America. Opening with the powerful, riff-heavy and earthbound Desert Rock-infused "El Despertar" the band paves the way for things to come as there is the deeper, more laid back and dubbed out "Camino", the upbeat, thrilling dancefloor Psychedelia of "I've Seen It  Fall" as well as the smokey distortion of the Desert Rock-anthem that is "Don't Know Why". With "En El Centro De La Sierra" we see Tajak explore more of a sunset after a day of hard work in the desert kind of vibe, the title track "Ciclos" employs more of a dreamy, underwater Stoner atmosphere going all in for a wall of sound later, "The Drop (Vinyl Edit)" provides a proper take on intense slo-mo tension for those who like to bang their head on a regular and the final cut "Ojos De Agua (Vinyl Edit)" waves goodbye on a calm and relaxed non-vocal vocal level. Good stuff, this.

Sascha Müller - Traxxx Vol. 3 [SM Traxxx 26-2018]

Coming up with his next digital single on August 16th, 2k18 is the man Sascha Müller, bringing forth two new bangers on the SM Traxxx label. With "Track 05" he presents a killer take on gooey, spiralling AcidTrance featuring punchy snare attacks for all the oldskool ravers whilst "Track 06" combines more hypnotic Acid with raw, galloping Breakbeat-references for buzzing primetime sets. Great  stuff.

Lui Hill - Lui Hill [Filter Music Group]

To be released via Filter Music Group on August 10th, 2k18 is "Lui Hill", the self-titled debut album of the German NeoSoul / NuSoul artist of the same name which has recently been announced on these pages via the video of the single "Ancient Dust" taken of the album. Inspired mostly by South Africa after quite a heapload of personal and business tragedy the album opens with the 4k Future Soul piece "5000 Miles" followed by the widescreen, Piano-led anthem "Revolver" with its distinct drum signature and a slightly stop-and-go reminiscing vibe whereas "See The Light Again" weighs in more of a Pop appeal featuring widescreen panorama synths and an upbeat dancefloor vibe before "Words Become Useless" provides 21st century Urbans Soul music for real. Facing "The Storm" Lui Hill indulges in a mixture of electronically based Future Soul and folksy guitars, "Home (Interlude)" is more of a twisted, cut-up Field Recording and "So In Between" introduces drama, tension and a hint of darkness through a stripped down arrangement led by raw vintage basslines, crashing military snares and a sweet offbeat lick. Wading "Muddy Waters" we're facing more beautiful pianos and heartfelt ballad vibes whilst "The Fall" rides a well-similar wave and the final cut  "We Don't Die" provides a calm, inward looking conclusion to this album for lovers of SoftRock infused summer sunset songs for sure. Sweet stuff.

Dr. NoiseM - Studio Works 28 [Dr. NoiseM Tapes]

Coming up with his new "Studio Works 28" album on his very own label again is Meppen's mysterious Noize creator known as Dr. NoiseM churning out a new menu of 13 times sickness for all you experimental minds out there. Starting out with "No Name Motherfukker", a mad grinding digital HarshNoize affair stretched over 14+ minutes followed by the well cryptic "3nf94mf34" which is dealing with a spatial, droney and subtle take on Cold Ambient whereas "Art Seduction" follows up on a similar, yet even more minimalist path for nearly ten minutes and "Bassado" brings forth straight up hefty digital ultraviolence for those in the know. "Bassporn" sees the producer return to a slightly altered, slowed down variation of his trademark respiratory sounds accompanied by growling, slowly shifting sub lines turning into grinding digital Noize, "Bing Bong" is more of a lively, lovely 60 second excursion into weird 8bit arrangements on hyperspeed, "Break The Fukkin Silence" drifts off into hectic uberglitch territories and "Close Your Eyes" gets down like a brutalist maelstrom on a braincell destruction thing for sure. With "Computer Death" Dr. NoiseM provides more sweeps, bleeps and distorted lo-fi madness slightly reminiscent of Lassigue Bendthaus' ill twisted Phonk at times, "Death In October" caters an endless string of decaying Noize fragments, "Franky (Victor Frankenstein)" gets lost in highly psychoactive dreams, "Geschrei" weighs in 160 seconds of spine-tingling sci-fi soundscapes and the final cut "Kalibration" evokes cold, sterile memories of Field Recordings captured in a robotic lab of the future. Nice.

Stella Chiweshe - Kasahwa: Early Singles [Glitterbeat Records]

To be released on September 14th, 2k18 via Glitterbeat Records is "Kasahwa: Early Singles", a collection of hard to find single releases put on the circuit by Zimbabwe- and Germany-based singer and performer Stella Chiweshe between 1974 and 1983 when she just started to become an Mbira-icon and -sensation in her homeland of Zimbabwe. With these eight early recordings the listener, even if not familiar with the mystical and spiritual origins of the Mbira genre which has been played by the Shona people for centuries and even millenia, is entering a fascinating, organic and well-calming realm of naturalistic, ancient sound with a carribbean twist which, in its meandering repetition and partly even playful nature seems to be mysteriously familiar and all-embracing, like an age old structure that has been embedded into the musical dna of mankind since day one. Interesting.
