Ketiov - King Of Hypocrisy (1lp)

May 10, 2019 ketiov004Following on from his percussion driven “Rhythm Trainx Vol 2” EP on the renowned Running Back Ketiov returns with something special for the fourth outing on his own self-titled label. The “King Of Hypocrisy” LP is a journey of personal development and musical discovery built around soundscapes, field recordings and new monotone arrangements. From the start the Ketiov alias has been about free expression and musical direction and in stark contrast to the Running Back EP this record shows the broad spectrum of the artist’s influences and inspirations. Each track Read the whole story

Dovs - Silent Cities (2lp)

May 10, 2019 atlp09On their debut album as DOVS, Tin Man and AAAA summon the ethereal spirit of acid. Tin Man, AKA Johannes Auvinen, has been studying the emotional potential of the Roland TB-303 for 15 years now, and AAAA (Gabo Barranco), a fixture of the Mexico City underground, might as well be his acolyte. While the coincidental similarities of their studio and live approaches make this collaboration feel natural, even expected, Silent Cities is anything but. We recognize most of the elements here—the ubiquitous acid box and hardware drum machines—yet Auvinen and Barranco arrive in new, Read the whole story

Pepe Bradock - What A Mess !

May 10, 2019 ATA0PiIt all started with words, and a project for an art book with a CD, acronym for Corps Diplomatiques as a tribute to a special diplomatic elephant called Abul Abbas. A few mundane terms, picked randomly, then coupled with frequencies chosen in a spontaneous way for their presupposed properties or synchronicities, whether in space, orbital rhythms, color spectrum, or electro-magnetic fields. Those free associations became the foundation for a written composition, the reprogramming of recordings of computer improvisations, and a dialogue with the visual elements of the book. It is also based on Read the whole story

Paula Temple - Edge Of Everything (2LP Gatefold + DL)

May 3, 2019
nmlp001Debut Album from Paula Temple -  Paula Temple presents her long-awaited debut album Edge Of Everything . The result of years spent ruminating on the healing powers of harsh noise, she employs a cinematic textural palette for a call to action in desperate times. The album will be available via her own Noise Manifesto imprint as a 2xLP vinyl and digital release on May 3rd. Across twelve tracks, Paula applies warped aesthetic distortions to a broad exploration of techno. Industrial, determined and fostering a deep sense of urgency, Edge Of Everything encourages a New Release

Feater - Socialo Blanco (LP)

May 3, 2019
RBINC002LPSometimes, - despite today’s high-octane, fast-track and hyper-hysteric music business - you come across things that seem so pure, perfect and poetic that it almost hurts. “Socialo Blanco” is one of these objects. It appears understated at a first listen, startling at the second and totally enamouring by the third run. To lay it all out on the table: it sounds like a Music from Memory re-issue, looks like a Growing Bins Records discovery and feels like a flea-market-hippie-uncle-record-collection find. Based on the language (coincidences and misbehaviour included) and
