Review: Alex Barnett and Faith Coloccia return to the dark, militant and disorderly outlet that is Blackest Ever Black for a second LP of twisted ambient-filtered noise infusions. Much like their previous album, Weld is inherently abstract but still manages to tell a story, taking the listener on a journey by using primitive forms of sound design. There are certainly more concrete pieces within, such as the kick-powered "Dreamsnake" or the hazy stoner jam that is "AM Horizon", but the release is largely freeform and loosely held together by fuzzy shreds of electronic fuzz. "Ash Grove" is a favourite of ours, its circling toms giving the track a sporadic backbone. It's a beaut, as per usual.

Review: The belated release of New York industrial ambient crew Black Rain's early '90s soundtrack work in 2011 sparked something in founder Stuart Argabright. It inspired a belated return to the studio and this surprise album, Black Rain's first for 18 years. Given how long they've been away, Dark Pool is a pleasingly accomplished set. Like their previous material, it wades in dark waters, joining the dots between droning electronic textures, skittish, IDM-inspired rhythms, horror chic, industrial noise and bleak electronica. It's hugely atmospheric, of course, but also strangely claustrophobic. It's a brilliant set, all told, but one that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Review: Apart from one LP on Skrammel Records and their gorgeous debut on the sublime Blackest Ever Black label back in 2014, we haven't heard from the Bremen duo in a good while. Having said that, we're not worried because Jonas Tiljander and Lanchy Orre know how to put together a stunning collection of daring ambient rock and harmonic drone experiments, and this homecoming on BEB is testament to their abilities as both expert musicians and futurists. Wading through glacial guitar riffs - see "On Board" and "Scorched Earth" - lo-fi snippets of masterfully executed lo-fi through tunes like "Cold March" or "The Art Of Non Existence", the only fair way is to describe this album as being way left of field, and providing the listener with some much needed downtempo. It's a listening album, through and through, so stick it on and put your feed up.

Review: Alex Ander and Marc Dall, the two dudes behind the Dalhous project, have pretty much restricted their output to the mighty Blackest Ever Black label, but who could blame them? The label has been one of the most consistent and diverse stables for dark and industrial dance and non-dance music over the last five years, a true pinnacle of the 2010's. This latest work, entitled The Composite Moods Collection Vol 1 / House Number 44 is a beast of an album, nineteen piece of sparse and desolate electronic music that has much more in common with a soundtrack than an ambient album. In fact, the chilling backdrops of drones and electro-acoustic wails that flutter over this work are truly a piece of moody melodica, a times loosely infused with melted beats and a ritualistic form of percussion. It's classic BEB material, and if you're into travelling to sinister, cavernous places, this will surely do the trick.

Review: Melbourne trio F Ingers are formed of Tarcar pair Carla Dal Forno and Tarquin Manek along with Samuel Karmel and their Blackest Ever Black debut is some seriously drugged out, lo-fi electronics sounding like early Chris & Cosey crossed with Syd Barrett style psychedelia. Such examples of this are on tracks "Escape Into Bushes" and "Under The House Hard To Breathe". Likewise, tracks like "Blissful Cubby House" and "Useless Treasure" sound like CTI.. if they were joined by a guitarist! The perfect soundtrack for rainy Sunday afternoons after a big night out.

Review: Blackest Ever Black crank the releases gears back into action for 2014 with the first release of what promises to be another perennially intriguing calender year. Typically, their focus falls on a musician who might not be that familiar to the wider audience but has a discography that commands respect. Check the Blackest Ever Black website and you'll find a press release that paints Stefan Jaworzyn as "a notorious and energetic presence in the UK underground of the 1980s and '90s" who enjoyed stints in acts such as Whitehouse, Ascension and Skullflower, as well as overseeing the Shock Records label. Having withdrawn from music in 1996, Jaworzyn remained off the grid until earlier this year when the Shock Records label was reactivated and he set to work on sifting through his personal archives of recordings for the KINO reissue/compilation series. It was during this process that Jaworzyn chanced upon a set of "driving, faintly sociopathic and supremely zoned pieces" made at his Cardiff studio in 1982 using a Korg MS10 or 20 and a Dr Rhythm drum machine. Seven of these compositions now feature on Drained Of Connotation, which is perhaps the most BEB-appropriate title in some time!

Review: Aside from all the projects that he's been involved in the past - Bum Creek and Tarcar being among some of our favourites - Tarquin Manek has only released one tune on his own name, a track entitled "Not Missing You" that came out earlier this year on the mighty Blackest Ever Black. Manek is finally back on BEB with his own mini LP this time, and it's a splendid mixture of eerie electronics and Eastern influences. For instance, the opener "Sassafras Gessundheit" is a wonky twist of pseudo didgeridoos and unstable electronic patterns, and "Fortunes Past" is so molecular in its aesthetic that it sounds like organisms floating at the bottom of the ocean. "Perfect Scorn" is another favourite of ours, but what we most like about Manek's music is the little details dotted everywhere. Like intricate sculptures, his music is a journey into subtlety and elegance. Beautiful.

Review: Known best for their work on Blackest Ever Black as Raime, Tom Halstead and Joe Andrews resurface on the label under their lesser spotted alias Moin with this self titled EP. The music of Moin was first presented on Blackest Ever Black's Confessions 7-inch series last year on a split release with Pete Swanson, though the identities of those involved was not disclosed at the time. Described by the label as three tracks recorded with drums, guitar and bass, arranged with effects and sequencer" Halstead and Andrews plunder a more overtly sparse post punk sound as Moin. The darkness intrinsic to their celebrated work as Raime is still very much apparent here in the squalling, doom laden guitar drones, bursts of feedback and strange, unnerving chanting.

Review: The BEB boys have had this LP from Regis in the works for a while now, getting every coldwave freak from here to Timbuktu raving with excitement. Although this LP isn't made up wholly of new tracks, it is a fine compilation of the man's most important material post his purist techno days of the late 90's and early 2000's. Within, you'll find all of his most diverse and thought-provoking works, from the infamous remix of Raime's "This Foundry" to the gorgeous techno excursion that is the remix of "Loss" by Dalhous, a collection of works that span ambient, goth, techno and EBM. However, there a three new tunes: there's the excellent Nitzer Ebb-style remix of "Manbait" by Family Sex, the electrifying "CU1" by CUB, and the wavy, far-out trip that is "Plant Lillies At My Head" by Tropic Of Cancer. Yes, this is a bit special, so do the right thing.

Review: Blackest Ever Black first plunged us head first into the "small hour tape experiments, noise etudes and basement-mildewed pop" of Ryan Martin's Secret Boyfriend project in late 2013 with the release of This Is Always Where You've Lived. That album granted Martin his debut vinyl outing after a raft of cassette releases through his own Hot Releases label, and he's now back on the good ship BEB with a new album. Some six tracks long, Memory Care Unit compiles material Martin recorded for a Grovl tape boxset released back in February along with previously unreleased music recorded between 2013-14. A few minutes spent listening to Memory Care Unit proves that Blackest Ever Black's description of the album as "poignant, isolationist machine music" is most certainly apt.

Review: Operating on a release schedule that's as prolific as it is inventive, Blackest Ever Black's latest foray into the musical ether comes from the curiously named Shampoo Boy, a guitar, bass and electronics trio from Vienna. Editions Mego boss Peter Rehberg forms Shampoo Boy with long term collaborator Christian Schachinger - the pair have been studio pals for some 25 years - and Christina Nemec and their debut release Licht contains four improvised recordings culled from a number of sessions in their Viennese studio between April 2012 and January 2013. Shampoo Boy focus on an approach that is parts chamber music, noise and drone and at times echoes the metallic eeriness of label mates Raime. Fans of Yellow Swans, Earth and Sunn O))) should also check this captivating set.

Review: Having already appeared on Blackest Ever Black with the Licht LP in 2013, guitar-drone three-piece Shampoo Boy make a stout return to the label with a new excursion into ranging layers of feedback and tone. Alongside the masterfully sculpted squalls of six-string noise on "Spalt", there's a strong current of electronic interference that pulsates throughout Crack, from subtle undercurrents of low-end throb to high-frequency static. Such sounds melt into the fabric of the band dynamic beautifully, creating a racket that is unsettling, and yet also quite uplifting. "Riss" takes a turn downwards into ominous caverns of bassy drone that shape out a very tangible space, while "Bruch I-III" evolves from eerie minimalism to sheer sonic terror over the course of twelve minutes.

Review: Carla Dal Forno and Tarquin Manek together are Tarcar and they're here to sign off another winner of a year from the now cult-like Blackest Ever Black label. There isn't much that BEB haven't deserved a medal for, and they have yet again amazed us with their ludicrously on-point artistic repertoire! Mince Glace is a true thing of beauty, an album which doesn't give a damn about genres or styles, but instead travels the treacherous paths between noise, drone, dub and pretty much any other genre of music! In our opinion, the nuttiest cit on here has to be "Emboldened" for it wavy jazz edge and far-out melodies, but be sure to also check out "Fireball" for a real spin down the wormhole. Lovely stuff from both label and artists. Don't miss it.

Review: Blackest Ever Black serve up a double dose of Tropic Of Cancer goodness this week, with the fresh material from Camella Lobo complemented by this Archive: The Downwards Singles 12". The smarter cookies out there will glean the content from the title, with BEB gathering together the earliest Tropic of Cancer material issued through the DO sublabel of Karl O'Connor's Downwards label. These three tracks were recorded in Tropic Of Cancer's original iteration of Lobo and Juan 'Silent Servant' Mendez, a time when the band was exploring a more explicitly bleaker, hazier sound. The motorik stomp and yelping Mendez vocals of closing track "Be Brave" remains a thrilling experience to sink into.

Review: Blackest Ever Black have performed an interesting exercise in issuing this new 12" from Tropic Of Cancer along with the Archive: The Downwards Singles collection; as it allows you to hear first-hand how Camella Lobo's band has progressed musically in a few short years. This three track 12" is her first new music since that excellent debut TOC LP, and finds Lobo working with Joshua Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. A few words that come to mind when listening to this exquisitely produced record: ethereal, beautiful, immense, hypnotic, and incandescent. Few artists can wrench such emotion from such sparseness of sound. This records shows that Camella Lobo is one of them.
