this week's update

WILLIAM BASINSKI
Cascade
(2062)

How does one follow the production of an era-defining musical statement -- one that came about almost by accident? Such is the task resting on the shoulders of the master-composer of sonic disintegration, William Basinski. (Read More & Listen)

$13.99 CD


DELIA GONZALEZ
In Remembrance
(DFA)

Delia Gonzalez, an artist who's perhaps best known for her mostly analog electronic music collaborations with Gavin Russom, turns in an entrancing set of solo piano workouts, with soft washes of synthesizer and the occasional rhythmic pulse buried deep. (Read More & Listen)

KAMURAN AKKOR
Kamuran Akkor
(Pharaway Sounds)

Kâmuran Akkor's rare recordings are finally seeing proper reissue, with the complete collected singles released by Istanbul Plak between 1971 and 1975. Akkor's songs combine Eastern, Western and otherworldly music, and is absolutely essential for lovers of that infectious Turkish sound, as well as the more psychedelic moments of Francoise Hardy's discography! (Read More & Listen)

BUILT TO SPILL
Untethered Moon
(Warner Bros)

The highly anticipated Untethered Moon is the first Built to Spill LP in six years, and the first ever with Doug Martsch's new line-up of Steve Gere on drums and bassist Jason Albertini. Martsch has always found ways to weave his vast musical taste into his songwriting and this record is no exception, with the usual hints of dub and reggae, as well as the new, ghostly Blue Oyster Cult-stylings that are displayed throughout. (Read More & Listen)

$13.99 CD

MAC MCCAUGHAN
Non-Believers
(Merge)

It's been well more than 20 years since the origin of both Superchunk, Mac McCaughan's hugely influential indie band, and also his long-running side project Portastatic (not to mention his iconic label, Merge Records), so what gives with the late-career "solo" debut? (Read More & Listen)

$13.99 CD
$18.99 LP+MP3


MARTIN GORE
MG
(Mute)

Though in the music of his band, Depeche Mode, you can hear touches of these experimental influences, it's usually buried underneath their emotional arena rock meets spiritual new wave aesthetics. But for his third solo outing, Martin Gore delivers a purely instrumental album under the name MG, the fruition of years as one of the masters of analog synths. (Read More & Listen)

$29.99 2LP+CD


JEFF ZAGERS
Still / Alive
(Wharf Cat)

This is a seriously awesome experimental pop record from multi-instrumentalist and Georgia native Jeff Zagers. Hailing from a background in the avant-garde dance music scene, Zagers shifts gears on Still / Alive and churns out infectious, melancholic, DIY-minded tunes similar to K Records pioneers the Microphones and Mirah, or even GA Elephant 6 legends Elf Power.

SOICHI TERADA
Soichi Terada Presents: Sounds from the Far East
(Rush Hour)

Japanese composer Soichi Terada founded the Far East Recording label in the late '80s, beginning with remix work and then moving on to develop his signature sound, and later, composing feature film and video game scores. This compilation gathers many of the label's earliest releases, along with sought-after underground house tracks by Shinichiro Yokota and out-of-print 12"s. Fans of DJ Sprinkles, Larry Heard or Bobby Konders should definitely check this out! (Read More & Listen)

ROBERT AIKI AUBREY LOWE & ARIEL KALMA
Frkwys Vol. 12 - We Know Each Other Somehow
(RVNG Intl.)

Following the release of Ariel Kalma's retrospective An Evolutionary Music on RVNG Intl. last year, the label is now treating us to a new take on Kalma's ambient sounds, in this special collaboration with Brooklyn-based modular synth guru Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. (Read More)

BRAIDS
Deep in the Iris
(Arbutus)

Despite the suggestive, open-ended title, Deep in the Iris is a surprisingly straightforward electronic pop record, in the best possible way. Here the group has purposefully dropped the uniquely disjointed framework that encapsulated their previous work, all replaced by glossy hooks and far more familiar beats. (Read More & Listen)

$17.99 LP


COLIN STETSON & SARAH NEUFELD
Never Were the Way She Was
(Constellation)

While playing on the same tour in 2012, saxophonist Colin Stetson and violinist Sarah Neufeld began improvising and writing together. Never Were the Way She Was is the resulting album, recorded live with no overdubs, looping, sampling, or other editing; this is an awe-inspiring journey through sound and energy, showcasing flights of the human spirit and strong emotional intent. (Read More & Listen)

$12.99 CD ON SALE


NICK KLEIN
Failed Devotee
(Unknown Precept)

Brooklyn electronic musician Nick Klein, one half of the excellent Primitive Languages imprint, makes his vinyl debut on the nascent German label Unknown Precept. Failed Devotee offers five dread-filled sonic treatises on anxiety, where corrosive synths crackle, drone, arpeggiate and gnash over Spartan but hard-hitting drum programming. (Read More & Listen)

$15.99 12"

BROKEN ENGLISH CLUB
Scars
(Cititrax)

Following last year's successful split EP with Silent Servant, Oliver Ho once again dons his Broken English Club alias for his return to Minimal Wave's Cititrax imprint with Scars. Over the EP's four tracks, Ho's ominous sonics explore where industrial rhythms collide with EBM and cold techno, and does so with some of his tightest, leanest and most propulsive productions yet. (Read More & Listen)

$23.99 12" EP


THE CHARLATANS
Modern Nature
(BMG)

Debuting during the much-hyped UK baggy scene of the early '90s, the Charlatans cruised past the early career burnouts of the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays with a series of workmanlike albums that drew heavily from the '60s but incorporated just enough modern production to stay contemporary. The faithful won't be disappointed with their newest full-length, and for those daunted by the band's extensive back catalog, Modern Nature serves as an inviting entry point. (Read More & Listen)

TRICKFINGER
Trickfinger
(Acid Test)

From his legendary, albeit tumultuous, stint(s) in the Red Hot Chili Peppers to his more experimental moves as a solo artist and producer, John Fruciante's musical output is as varied as it is prolific. Though best known as a guitarist's guitarist, Fruciante has also been engrossed in electronic music production for more than a few years now, and his latest venture as Trickfinger finds him putting his spin on acid house with mixed results. (Read More & Listen)

SUUNS AND JERUSALEM IN MY HEART
Suuns and Jerusalem in My Heart
(Secretly Canadian)

While Suuns and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (a/k/a Jerusalem in My Heart) both call Montreal home, their music couldn't be further apart. This unique collaboration finds both artists playing off of and absorbing each others' influences effortlessly; Moumneh's Eastern textures enshroud Suuns' pulsing, twitching synths and angular guitars, creating a mysterious sonic tapestry of spacious rock and unexplored music-scapes.

COPELAND
Because I'm Worth It
(Self-Released)

Once half of the smoke-n-mirrors duo known as Hype Williams, Inga Copeland (now simply going by the name of copeland -- all lowercase) surfaces with a full-length of original material. As one might expect, this is mood music, dubby and intimate, urban and personal, with Actress contributing to a couple of the tracks. A balanced listen between instrumentals (mainly) and vocal pieces (most importantly), these are heady songs made for and from the heart. (Read More & Listen)

$19.99 LP


MODEST MOUSE
Interstate 8
(Glacial Pace)

Originally released in 1996 and long out of print, Modest Mouse's second EP finally gets a proper vinyl reissue! Interstate 8 features the group's original demo, Live in Sunburst Montana, which was recorded in Isaac Brock's garage, plus studio recordings of "Tundra/Desert," "Beach Side Property," and "Novocain Stain" (which would also be included on the band's debut full-length). A rare release in the group's catalog available again for fans to enjoy, the LP version is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and comes with a download card. 

$13.99 CD
$21.99 LP+MP3


MICHAEL ANGELO
Michael Angelo
(Anthology Recordings)

For all the impossibly rare private press folk and psych albums out there, Michael Angelo's LP from 1977 might be the best of the bunch, up there with Zerfas, Bachs, Third Estate and Anonymous. Dreamy, sublime, and a must-own if '60s/'70s psych is your thing. (Read More & Listen)

MO KOLOURS
Mo Kolours
(One Handed)

One artist who has been on my underground radar for the last few years has been this half-Mauritian/half-English producer, singer and percussionist, Joseph Deenamode, a/k/a Mo Kolours. The self-titled release is a nicely balanced effort that moves from soulful and playful vocals to bump-n-thump instrumentals with a few samples worked into the mix, giving the whole thing a fun mix-tape feel. He's obviously a lover of soul music, and a crate digger, yet his vibe and charm come from how he blends that love of American music with his own ancestral home's rhythms known as sega.
