      Nerve Net - Reissue

        Reissue of Brian Eno’s 1992 album which found him returning to a more rock-oriented sound, albeit skewed through an aesthetic that is simultaneously playful, funky and claustrophobic and featuring a mixture of vocal and instrumental excursions. Includes contributions from Robert Fripp, Robert Quine and John Paul Jones.

        The Shutov Assembly - Reissue

          Reissue of Brian Eno’s 1992 album dedicated to Russian artist and friend Sergei Shutov and a continuation of the atmospheric ambient work found on records such as ‘On Land’ and ‘Thursday Afternoon’. Eno had discovered that Shutov often painted to his music but was unable to obtain many of his records in then-communist Russia. He resolved to collate a tape of previously unreleased material (recorded between 1985 and 1990) to give to Shutov and upon listening himself discovered a previously unnoticed thread that ran through the pieces, creating an unintentional full-length work. Each piece is named after and derived from one of Eno’s audio-visual installations.

          Film Music 1976 - 2020

            This long-awaited album brings together 17 tracks from Eno’s most recognisable film and television work spanning 5 decades.

            Eno’s music has been used in hundreds of films and he has composed more than 20 soundtracks for some of the best known directors in the world including David Lynch, Danny Boyle, Peter Jackson, Michelangelo Antonioni, Derek Jarman and Michael Mann.

            Compositions such as “Ship in a Bottle” in “The Lovely Bones”, “Prophecy Theme” from “Dune”, “Deep Blue Day” in “Trainspotting”, “Late Evening in Jersey” in “Heat”, “Beach Sequence” in Antonioni’s last film “Beyond The Clouds” and “An Ending (Ascent)” from Al Reinert’s ground-breaking “For All Mankind” have contributed significantly to memorably iconic scenes.

            Eno has also scored extensively for television, including all 3 series of the gritty UK crime drama, “Top Boy” for which he received a Bafta, and Danny Boyle’s “Mr Wroe’s Virgins” which earned him and his brother Roger a Bafta nomination.

            This release features over an hour of classic Eno compositions and includes several previously unreleased tracks.

            says: What is there to say about Brian Eno that hasn't already been said? Very little I'd wager. What I can tell you is that this new compilation of his work for films and TV from 1976 is absolutely essential. It's some of the best work he's ever done (really!) and sits comfortably alongside his legendary album output.

            Roger and Brian Eno’s acclaimed creative collaboration continues with seven additional tracks entitled "Luminous". As with the album, the artist Dom Theobald has supplied the original cover artwork, and to support smaller retailers such as ourselves, a special version of the EP on sun yellow vinyl and with a different version has been produced - which is now available to our lucky customers!

            A terrifyingly stark and encapsulating piece centered around piano; hoovering in a cerebral clarity yet at times touching the heart with unfrivalled compassion; this sedative piece could be your bedside companion for many a listen... Highly recommended.

            Mixing Colours

              Roger Eno and Brian Eno – together and individually among the foremost innovators in experimental ambient music – will release their first album on Deutsche Grammophon: Mixing Colours.Brian and Roger Eno have revolutionized many concepts of music production and performance, from pioneering treatments of pop music by Brian Eno to younger brother Roger Eno’s ambient synth/piano recordings reminiscent of Erik Satie. These qualities resonate on this new release. Each brings his unerring sense of place and mood to the album. The timbre in each title deepens and opens up with each listening. Specific yet abstract titles guide listeners through the collection created over several years in a unique collaboration by both artists.The result is deep-dive listening and landscapes of sound bearing titles like abstract art: Obsidian, Deep Saffron, or Wintergreen. This debut DG release will reach a wide new audience still unfamiliar with their artistry. The poetic and ambient anthology reveals two celebrated ambient musicians at the height of their artistry.

              Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks - Extended Edition

              A whole disc of new music, plus Eno’s seminal original album re-mastered.

              "Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks" was written, produced and performed by Brian Eno together with his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois. The music was originally recorded in 1983 for the landmark feature-length documentary ‘For All Mankind’, which was directed by American journalist, film director and screenwriter Al Reinert. The film features 35mm footage of the Apollo 11 moon landing with real-time commentary, as well as the Apollo astronauts sharing their recollections of the momentous events surrounding it. An extended edition of the album will be released on July 19th in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. This very special anniversary release features the original album remastered by Abbey Road's Miles Showell, as well as an accompanying album of 11 new instrumental compositions that reimagine the soundtrack to ‘For All Mankind’.

              The music from the original album is highly recognizable, and tracks from it have been streamed in excess of 300 million times. Since its release, many of the songs from "Apollo" have found a life of their own, featuring in any number of films, television shows and commercials – most notably ‘Trainspotting’, ‘Traffic’, ‘28 Days Later, ‘Drive’ and ‘Love’. ‘An Ending (Ascent)’ was also used in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony. The 11 new tracks on "Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks" find Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno working collectively for the first time since the original album in 1983. Lanois contributed 3 compositions; "Capsule", "Last Step From The Surface" and "Fine-grained", while Roger Eno’s are "Waking Up", "Under The Moon" and "Strange Quiet".

              says: There aren't many things in this world that can compete with me for “The Best Things To Have Come Out On The 30th Of June 1983”, but 'Apollo...' is one of them. In classic Eno fashion, this is a well balanced juxtaposition of plaintive piano, expertly crafted walls of tectonic synth (both monolithic and near-weightless) and Eno's legendary skill at balancing the two. This extended edition is without a doubt, an essential item for fans or ambient explorers alike. Stunning.

              Ambient 1: Music For Airports

                UMC / Virgin EMI present vinyl editions of the seminal Brian Eno albums ‘Discreet Music, ‘Music For Films, ‘Music For Airports’ and ‘On Land’. 

                Although originally released interspersed with other albums and thus not fully sequential, these landmark records chart 4 key points in a fascinating journey that saw Eno explore generative music, found-sound ‘non instruments’, studio experimentation, ‘figurative music’ and–most notably–building upon Erik Satie’s concept of ‘furniture music’, eventually coining the now vernacular-standard term ‘ambient’.

                LP Info: Standard 1 LP vinyl, remastered at normal speed for 33 RPM.

                A new album from Brian Eno is always something we look forward to and upon hearing it, 'The Ship' is possibly one of the finest solo works from this pioneer yet. Opening with the truly otherworldly experience of title track 'The Ship' Eno carefully lays down a twenty minute plus blanket of slow moving, but fully immersive synths that start off sounding like the blurry jet lag memories of the morning after a night in his 'Music For Airports' departure lounge. The track builds with a delicate, constantly evolving '77 Million Paintings' style drone before his deeply lead vocals chime into the mix, this could honestly be an update on a lost recording from the B-side of 'Low'. The rest of the album follows in a similar stance but over a three-part "musical novel" and takes in oceanic waves of sound to spoken word transcripts and ends on a tear-drenched cover of The Velvet Underground's 'I'm Set Free'. Large parts of 'The Ship' will be tugging at memories of Eno's previous work notably 'Airports' and 'Another Green World', but it remains new and offers much to explore, the end caps on the words "I'm set free, to find a new illusion" and after 'The Ship' we can't wait to hear where he sails to next. Unmissable stuff.

                  says: From 1978, this album was Eno's first foray into ambient music production. Robert Wyatt guests on these wonderful drifting instrumentals.

                  Acclaimed 1975 album that represents a major turning point in Eno's career, entering the studio with nothing prepared and using 'Oblique Strategies' instructional cards for inspiration. It was here that Eno first began to experiment with abstract soundscapes, to employ a greater spatial element and the ethereal synthesizer effects that presaged an entire movement of ambient music. While most of the tracks are instrumental, the numbers that feature Eno's peculiar, affectless voice and free-associative lyrics seem to blend into the fabric of the album. Superior guest musicians include John Cale, Robert Fripp and Phil Collins. From the brain-bending riff of "Sky-Saw", through the elemental creeping of "Sombre Reptiles", from Robert Fripp's looping solos in "St. Elmo's Fire" to the dark swirl of "Spirits Drifting", "Another Green World" creates a superb series of sonic atmospheres that are rhythmic, expansive, strange and beautiful.

                  Ltd LP Info: Standard 1LP edition cut at Abbey Road Studios at 33RPM and pressed to 180-gram black heavyweight vinyl + download card.

                  CD Info: The music has not been remastered but instead has been re-transferred by Simon Heyworth from the original analogue masters as they are not technically re-EQ'd but transferred to the digital domain using the best technology currently available (DSD).

                  "Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)", Brian Eno's sophomore solo outing, is a grab bag of freaky, science-fiction-dipped confections. Filled with a battery of innovative, unsettling effects, the album is darker and more complex than "Here Come The Warm Jets". The artist shows an increasing willingness to experiment with texture, as on "The Great Pretender," whose whirling, oozing keyboard line and synthesized vocals approximate delirium tremens or a hatching hive of maggots, or on "Put A Straw Under Baby," which features the Portsmouth Sinfonia, whose members have no knowledge of their instruments.

                  Yet Eno's grasp of melody and songcraft is everywhere: on the bouncing, absurdist / philosophical "Burning Airlines (Give You So Much More)," and on straight-out rockers, like the deliciously intense "Third Uncle" (which is propelled by the churning guitar of Roxy Music's Phil Manzenera, and is, arguably, the album's highlight). Concurrent with David Bowie's "Aladdin Sane"-era alien aesthetic, Eno's tunes are even more otherwordly and warped than his glam cohort, making use of the full palette of bizarro synthesizer effects and creepy-cheeky postures. The songs, however, are as inventive and appealing as their treatments, and make for Eno's most solid - and experimental - pop album. "Taking Tiger Mountain" holds up magnificently, even years on in the artist's brilliant career.
