BYRD OUT

Glasgow-based musician and producer Lo Kindre is at the heart of his local electronic music scene. He has previously released on Optimo Music and is a serial collaborator with MR TC, most recently launching the Phase Group label together. He’s played on Red Light Radio, LYL Radio, supported the legendary Adrian Sherwood, and put out records with the widely lauded Austrian label Neubau as well as Glasgow's 12th Isle.

Private Worlds is Lo Kindre’s most thoughtful and introspective release yet, seeing him reach once again for the spaced out dubby recesses of electronic music, adding-in a ladleful of drone and some choice samples to create something that sounds fresh and new.

KMRU is one of the rising stars of the East African music scene, selected as one Resident Advisor's 15 East African artists you need to hear last year, playing at the infamous Nyege Nyege Festival in 2018, and being picked up by Deadmau5's label Mau5trap for a track on their "We Are Friends" compilation, with Chris Waldt. KMRU makes intelligent atmospheric and emotionally evocative electronic music. His sounds combine everything from gritty, indigenous field recordings to piano to 303. As his "Erased EP" demonstrates, soulful electronica sounds beautiful, even natural. Just a 300 pressing, so pick up this gem from Nairobi before they go - 3 sublime tracks! Mastered by Neil Perch, artwork by G.S-L Studio.

'You prayed every night to sweet baby black Jesus that this would happen and it finally has. Pianist Elliot Galvin and I have made an album' - Binker Golding. Binker Golding (the sax in Binker and Moses) is 'Coltranesque' according to John Fordham’s review for The Guardian, and this record sees him forging a new partnership with Elliot Galvin, whose 'technical brilliance is matched with a very British sense of eccentricity' (The Jazz Mann). 'The combination of saxophonist Binker Golding and pianist Elliot Galvin is guaranteed to be awe-inspiring' says London Jazz News, and this full album doesn’t disappoint.

Elliot describes the record as 'high energy and spontaneous', which is definitely on point - an energy it maintains for over 40 minutes. Six new tracks recorded at The Vortex in London, which pull on all Binker’s and Elliot’s technical repertoire and delve into the experimental recesses of the minds of two of London’s young foremost exponents of jazz. Mastered by Noel Summerville, artwork by George Finlay Ramsay and G.S-L Studio. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Emily says: Golding (of Binker and Moses) and Galvin push the physical boundaries of their instruments with techniques reminiscent of those used by expressionist composers. Tracks like “Adaequatio Intellectus Et Rei” and “Aliquid Stat Pro Aliquot” present a flurry of neurotic scratching, clattering and unexpected flourishes. Later on, ‘Non Plus Ultra’ offers a moment of melancholic serenity amidst the chaos. Not an easy listen, but a daring exploration of unique musical textures which might represent the darker recesses of the human psyche.

Almost exactly a year after his first EP on Byrd Out (the Kiyadub EP), the legendary Andrew Weatherall returns with new material for a second release. Andrew invited a mate round to his studio to try out a Les Paul his friend was looking to buy. As it turns out, his mate was Ride's (and Oasis') guitarist Andy Bell. Anyway, Andrew suggested he test the guitar out over a track he was working on, and ‘Making Friends With The Invader’ is the resulting track, which Andrew paired with the EP’s title track ‘Blue Bullet’. Both tracks plough the trippy, cosmic dub furrow, and come in at a weighty 8 and 9 minutes plus. On the A-side "Blue Bullet" pairs a gloomy post-punk B-line with mindwarping dub fx and flawless sound design, winding out the subs like a stoned Golden Teacher or Adrian Sherwood in a K-hole. Over on the flip Wevvers knocks up a more traditionally dubby bassline, makes liberal use of the fx units and leaves space for Andy Bell to strum, pick and shred somewhere between shoegaze, ska and Floyd. 1000 vinyl only. Grab them while you can! Mastered by Noel Summerville. Artwork by G.S-L Studio.
