Review: Spanish multi-instrumentalist and producer Luis Paniagua gets the Emotional treatment here with the reissue of the stunning 1987 album "Neptuno". It's a joyous album that revels in global musical traditions, and its accomplished finish is a marvel considering he recorded it with Luis Delgado in his Madrid attic within just a few days. From the treated string swells and sitar lilt of the title track to the lively percussive tumble of "Gacelle" and on to the bell chimes of "Aqui Y Ahora", this is a stunning record executed with talent and rich with the many wonderful tones to be enjoyed from a whole world of instrumentation.

  1. The Perishable Imagination (14:19)
  2. Maybe This Is Something You Should Think About (14:22)
Review: Earlier in the year, Jonny Nash and Diego Herrera (AKA Suzanne Kraft) debuted their MATStudio project, a collage style affair featuring lengthy tracks built out of fragments of "improvisations, experiments and accidents". This speedy follow-up is arguably even better than its predecessor, at least in our eyes. There's something particularly wondrous about A-side "The Perishable Imagination", a sublime 14-minute journey through processed ambient electronics, delay-laden acoustic guitars and droning effects that subtly shifts focus several times. "Maybe This Is Something You Should Think About" slowly throbs and pulses before softly unfurling via trademark Jonny Nash guitars, scattergun Autechre-esque beats and intergalactic electronics. Lie down, zone out and enjoy.

  6. You Never Were (8:28)
Review: "Anoyo", Tim Hecker's latest must-check album, was apparently designed as a companion piece to its predecessor, 2018's "Konoyo". Like that album, it was inspired by his desire to fuse his brand of experimental electronica and wayward ambient music with the sounds of "gagaku" - a form of Japanese classical music famed for being played at the Far East nation's Imperial Court. In practice, that means recordings of traditional Japanese instruments and drums chopped, sliced, looped, mangled and reversed, fused with Hecker's own spacey ambient electronics and hazy electronic textures. It's a unique recipe, but one that results in a string of sublime, otherworldly compositions that just get better with each successive listen.

Review: Former folk singer Erland Cooper hit the headlines last year with his debut solo album, "Solan Goose", a set paid tribute to the birdlife of his native Orkney Isles via ambient electronics, sweeping neo-classical arrangements, evocative operatic style vocals and intricate, Nils Frahm style piano solos. This sequel - the second part in a promised trilogy - is named after a remote rock formation in the North Atlantic and was apparently inspired by the wild seas that frequently thunder against it. Musically it explores similar territory to its predecessor and is every bit as inspired, with cyclic melodic refrains, lonely string-drenched soundscapes and intricate arrangements conjuring mental images of slow boat journeys to Britain's most far-flung, windswept northern isles.

Review: Plants Army Revolver debut on Avian. The Italian live act will join Avian for a five track EP showcasing the pair's breadth as producers. Working within the bounds of a carefully refined sound palette, Marco Ragni & Birgan Valentin look to the more muted, tentatively melodic end of loop Techno, with excursions into washed out Ambient & leftfield Electronica, placing the focus on sound texture & tone.

Review: In recent years painter turned musician Tor Lundvall has become renowned for the quality of his ambient works. Yet during his formative years, he was much more focused on making glacial, atmospheric synth-pop inspired by the likes of New Order, Pet Shop Boys and Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. It's this period, which panned the decade leading up to and including his self-released 1997 debut album "Passing Through Alone", which is explored on "A Strangeness In Motion". It's a very impressive set of richly produced, ear-catching songs rescued from DAT tapes that have sat hidden in Lundvall's archive for the last 20 years. Certainly, there's enough here to delight fans of the aforementioned bands or their contemporary equivalents (the Junior Boys in particular).

Review: After New York no wave heroes Liquid Liquid disbanded in the mid 1980s, percussionist and marimba player Dennis Young released a number of cassette-only albums of meditative new age music and chiming ambient compositions. 1989 set "Sojourn", here issued on vinyl for the first time with the addition of three previously unheard archive cuts, is arguably the best of the bunch. Rich in ear-catching synthesizer melodies, humid South East Asian instrumentation, cyclic musical motifs (think Steve Reich or Terry Riley), gentle percussion and - on the dusty "Ancient Past" - delay-laden vocals, the album's eight tracks are uniformly tuneful, blissful and undeniably emotive.
