Review: The master sound designer that is ASC is always going to turn heads whenever he serves up a new album. Silent Season out of Canada took care of this one which technically came out in 2019 but remained digital only. Now it makes its way to wax in all its immersive ambient glory. The hugely expansive record is made up of lush celestial pads, translucent curlicue fragments that drift in wide open spaces and balmy synths that arc way up high. It is aural wall paper, a sonic lava lamb, a trip through the cosmos in high definition that will leave you feeling utterly cleansed. Waves is etheral and magnificent in every way.

Review: Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard created a landmark of ambient music when they released 76:14 back in the 90s. Their Global Communication project was never just about ambient though, and it also coursed through deep house and more besides. In the spirit of progress, Middleton has returned to thinking about the project from a contemporary perspective, stepping forth as GCOM with the epic scope of E2 XO. From stirring orchestral suites to high octane DSP, it's an expansive listening experience that shows Middleton pushing himself into new terrain in the studio. Whether you tie it back to the prior material or not, it's a towering piece of work from an elder statesman of UK electronica.

Review: Jaki Liebezeit, Clive Deamer and Tony Allen are all clear influences on Marconi Union's new album Signals. The Manchester musicians have already got a well formed discography (there have been a rather impressive 12 albums in the last 18 years) but this latest addition is another boon. It's a seamless mix of synthetic textures with organic sound, shimming drums with soaring riffs. The drumming is in fact central to this record - never overbearing but never insignificant, it provides the compelling rhythms while the mellifluous guitars add the emotion. A deeply involving listen for sure.

Review: Re-issue time for the fourth long playing effort from Daniel Lopatin's Oneohtrix Point Never project, this one initially dropping after a lengthy gap. His knack for texture and fuzzing soundscapes knows no bounds, but here they are offset with more open and empty pieces that reset the mood. There are moments of pure inward reflection, more outward gazing ambient tracks that imbue you with a sense of hope and plenty of hallucinatory melodies.

Review: Duane Pitre's Omniscient Voices is another excellent one from the acclaim pianist and composer. It is his first since the highs of 2015's 'Bayou Electric' and finds Pitre composing short piano motifs and feeding them into a generative computer program which then in real time convert them into microtonal electronic sounds. It results in an album of minimalism, with blurry chords and more detuned sounding notes that cut through the ambiance. Sounds decay and evolve, smudge and melt into one another as this warm and enveloping album unfolds with hints of sadness, loneliness and bitterness all found within.

  8. Hinterland (5:29)
Review: RECOMMENDED
With sounds that might remind some of the USS Discovery's spore hub jump drive in Star Trek: Discovery, it should go without saying Tobias' Hall Ov Fame sits in the futurist end of ambient and drone music. But that's not to suggest there isn't also plenty of humanism happening here, too. The lush, perhaps ironically warm tones of 'Abandoned' come with added, inaudible vocals, albeit even these sound like they might be reeling off departure times for the day's starship flights.

Geeking out aside (blame the producer's clear knack for realising the kinds of noises that transport you directly into the cosmos), this is a record of deep layers, texture upon texture seeming to move in tandem, moments of harmony dissipating into simple refrains, before the next movement begins. Stunning.

Review: In remembrance of Pete Birch, AKA Woosh, AKA The Peaceful Ones and founder of Spirit Wrestlers. Four ambient pieces, three of which were released as part of Pete's 52 Card Trick series on the Spirit Wrestlers Bandcamp site, plus another piece which was a favourite of Pete's but was never finished in time.
Collected together on vinyl for the first time, all profits from the sale of this record will be donated to the Spirit Wrestlers Foundation. Set up after Pete's passing, the Foundation promotes the belief that ""Music is the Healing Force of the Universe"", that ""Love Is the Most Important Thing"" and helps causes that were close to his heart.

Review: Klamm is the new label dedicated to the artistic output of Saele Valese. After "Ivic", a collection of old and new materials published on Alva Noto's label (NOTON) at the beginning of the year, Saele Valese releases now his first real album "A White, White Day". Written and recorded between 2018 and 2021 the material of this work was sliced, glued and recreated several times, just like a filmmaker in the editing process, before finding its final form. Inspired indeed by the most poetic cinema, 'A White, White Day' represents, in the form of a non-linear and enigmatic narrative, a personal and psychological reflection on time, memory and dreams. Mastered by Rashad Becker.

Review: During the recording of his fourth album as Wordclock, Portuguese composer and multi-instrumentalist Pedro Pimentel claims he was inspired by "religious visions and myths", and specifically myths of gods in "blissful and hellish states". There are certainly some nods to religious music within the immersive, enveloping and ear-pleasing instrumental tracks that make up A Greater Bliss, though for the most part it's an inspired blend of expansive ambient (performed using a dizzying array of acoustic and electronic instruments), Morricone-influenced soundtracks, and hazy, soft-touch electronica. It makes for constantly rewarding listening, with the various pieces - or, as Pimento calls them, "dreamlike fragments" - cunningly eschewing easy categorization.
