Review: A core member of Dzeltenie Pastnieki throughout the early 00s, Ingus Bauskenieks is all about abstraction and experimentation. Since he came back from a long stint in the shadows, the Latvian musician has self-released a heap of wonderfully surreal music that is often overlooked and slept on. While many talk about freedom of expression, this guy does it for real, and this latest album, Spoki, comes through on Stroom with a very clear concept and a maturity to experimentation that is often not heard. It's not all bleeps and bloops and, in fact, he manages to add in his own nation's heritage thanks to several moments of neo-folk vocalism that works ever so well with the myriad of drum machines and samples housed under tunes like "Roni" or "Lidojums Uz Sauli" - the latter of which is a house reinterpretation of Latvian pop music. This is something for those who want something new, unheard, and attention-grabbing. A fine album - TIP!

De Angst Voorbij
Cat: STRLP 037. Rel: 19 Feb 20
Coldwave/Synth
  1. Russische Roulette (4:25)
  2. Groene Weduwen (4:41)
  3. Faits Divers (3:00)

  6. De Donkere Dans (4:24)
  7. November (4:44)
  8. Nachtschade (3:44)
Review: There's something rather terrifying about "De Angst Voorbij", even if the album title is compelling you to move "Beyond The Fear". The brainchild of Flemish cult star Gerry Vergult, its drone-fuelled broodiness contrasts poppier nuances (perhaps most eerily on "Russische Roulette", nodding to some of horror's most tried and tested methods of disturbing us. "Monster" incorporates organ chords that could be the cries of a haunted fairground. "Faits Divers" uses a simple two-tone melody to slowly build an imposing atmosphere, dropping delightful piano keys over the top to bring about a sense of parallels that correlate and compliment. As a record, it's an intriguing beast that is unapologetically challenging, truly unforgettable, and deserves a place in any far-reaching and forward-thinking music collection. Those looking for real proof should check the dark wave-y hypnosis of "Usurpation".

Review: Cristian Subira aka Jasin Kolar/Venessa Milano/Nubian Deli is from Barcelona. As if he didn't work under enough aliases, he's also one and all members of Summer Recreation Camp. He has played in several bands (Coconot, Dead Man On Campus, Gargamel) and released through his label Discos Compulsivos - where throughout the mid noughties he presented experimental work as El Guincho or Teeth Mountain. His new LP entitled Modified Perspectives builds on his decades long experience creating new-age mediative textures and explores the shimmering/ghostly sonic aesthetics of FM synthesis throughout these dozen or so evocative tracks. Will appeal to fans of recent ambient by the likes of Suzanne Kraft and Jonny Nash.

Review: Belgian label Stroom return with an LP by Annelies Monsere. She has been playing music solo since 2000, initially piano-based and mostly instrumental, but once she discovered her voice - vocals became a main focus. Musically, she has experimented with different instruments such as cello, guitar, xylophone and melodica. Happiness Is Within Sight is her seventh album and traverses many moods and variations: from classical to shoegaze to ambient and even organ-led church influenced music. It is an emotional and introspective album from start to finish which allows us a window into the talented artist's soul.

  12. Loisaida Dub (1:48)
Review: Given that the Axel Libeert-helmed Pablo's Eye project has been running continuously since the late 1980s, it's perhaps unsurprising that Stroom has found it hard to put out just one retrospective of the Belgian collective's work. In fact, "Dark Matter" is the third (and final) part of a retrospective trilogy that has brilliantly shed new light on Libeert and company's work. Experimental, atmospheric and largely creepy, the showcased material variously touches on high-minded percussion music, slowly shifting ambient, Berlin school soundscapes, neo-classical-tinged global fusion, smoky downtempo grooves, the kind of intensely paranoid fare we'd expect from Dominick Fernow, and scattergun electronic dub.

  8. It's Not Too Grand (5:16)
Review: Recent years have seen sporadic releases from Ruins, a long-serving combo who can rightly claim to be Italian new wave's most celebrated act. Stroom has decided against asking the band for new material; instead, they've rifled through Ruins' archives and put together this fine compilation of rare and unheard material recorded between 1981 and '84. There's much to admire, from the breezy pop shuffle of "Alone" and Cure-influenced, bass-propelled oddness of "Skeleton In Love", to the sparkling synth-pop brilliance of high-tempo number "Boys & Girls" and the punk-funk/dub disco-influenced throb of killer closing cut "It's Not Too Grand".

Review: Stroom's latest chunk of left-of-centre brilliance comes from Jan Van Der Broeke, an artist active since the 1980s who's arguably most famous for his work under the Absent Music, June 11 and The Misz aliases. 11,000 Dreams is his first career retrospective and draws on 30 years worth of self-released cassettes and CD-Rs. It's a sublime set, all told, pulling together dreamy, evocative, melodious and soft-touch tracks that blur the boundaries between ambient, skewed downtempo pop, blissful warmth, spoken word laden cheeriness (the odd but brilliant "My Lesbian Girlfriends") and spacey cuts laden with exotic instrumentation and whistling synthesizer melodies.

Review: For the uninitiated, Vazz was a post-punk era new wave duo briefly active in the mid 1980s. They first broke through while residents of their native Glasgow, but later moved East to Edinburgh and stripped back their sound to little more than haunting piano (courtesy of the pair's musical maestro Hugh Small) and the distinctive lyrics and vocals of Anna Howson. This excellent primer offers a neat introduction to the pair's best moments between 1982 and '87, drawing on both of their distinct periods and including such highlights as the wonderfully dreamy title track, the buzzing post-punk pop of "Flute Dance", the dubbed-out heaviness of "Cast Reflections" and the unfussy piano bliss of "Star Chamber".

Review: During the 1980s, Hessel Veldman was a key member of the Netherlands' network of DIY musicians, whose exploits were released in limited quantities on self-made cassettes. This album draws together the best of his work from the period, drawing not only on releases under his own name but also the ever-changing Y Create collective he helmed. It makes for hugely enjoyable listening, not least because Veldman had an eclectic approach. Across the course of "Eigen Boezem" you'll find darkly ambient explorations, lo-fi cinematic soundscapes, interesting post-punk pop, discordant industrial sounds, tape loop-based experiments and even a touch of off-kilter reggae.
