R. Missing

Unsummering

    R. Missing is the enigmatic music project of New York based vocalist Sharon Shy and musician Toppy.previously known as The Ropes. Unsummering, the first release under their new moniker R. Missing, expands on The Ropes' previous palette of Morrissey tinged lyrics and darkwave, but manages to be even more isolated lyrically than their famously nihilistic previous work, fully embracing complete detachment. Musically, fraught guitar and synth textures paint an image of an unstable world, held together only by tightly quantized electronic drum beats.

    Idaho

    Hearts Of Palm

      First time on vinyl. One of the most prolific, consistent, and unsung slowcore acts, Los Angeles, California's IDAHO is led by four-string guitarist and vocalist Jeff Martin, an unflinching songwriter who gained comparisons to Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters), and Neil Young. "Hearts of Palm", Idaho's fifth studio album, was universally praised by the critics when released in 2000. It features Dan Seta on guitars and Jeff Martin playing everything else (except for a few guest appearances).

      Motorama

      Many Nights

        "Many Nights" is Motorama's fifth and is a mix of gothic Balearic beats and jangle pop guitars with the lyrics about transcenden?e and surreal worlds, influenced by Arthur Rimbaud and Alexander Blok. Ten songs are structured around a few instruments with the simple melodies and grooves, inspired by Soviet New Wave scene, the cinematographic electronic music of Eduard Artemiev, New Zealand kiwi pop and African percussion arrangements.

        Laish

        Time Elastic

          Laish, from Brighton, are piloted by the mesmeric Danny Green, a master of captivating confessionals and a thoroughly engaging front man. His glorious voice ranges from the angelic, to a plaintiveness echoing Robert Wyatt, to deeper Kurt Wagner-esque tones. New album, Time Elastic, brims with ultra-cool, classic songwriting and bestows a superbly developed and playful record, full of surprises. A bold step forward, presenting a songwriter at the height of his powers.

          Utro

          Third Album

            Formed by Vladislav Parshin (of Motorama), in Rostov-On-Don, in 2010, the band became known in Russia for it’s experimental instrumentation, minimalist approach to the music and existential, spiritual lyrics in Russian language. Utro took the blueprint from Soviet bands, post-punk bands from Germany and UK and pushed it way further, using just drums, percurssion, synth bass, synthesizers, and voice. In 2015 Uto announced "We don’t use guitars anymore, we play live drums, synth bass and different keyboards."

            Flotation Toy Warning have been stealing hearts with their space-rock-chamber-pop since the beginning of the last decade. Their debut Bluffers Guide to the Flight Deck was released worldwide in 2004. It has been a very long wait but their second full-length is now set to be released. And it was worth the wait!

            "Swirls of guitar, looped samples and beautifully bereft vocals to beguiling lo-fi effect, recalling both DIY Flaming Lips and the glitchyside of Sparklehorse - Buckled but beauteous, psychedelic Victoriana with beats" Time Out.

            Danny Green, aka Laish, is set to release his third album via Talitres. A set of twelve songs that span the spectrum of gentle fingerpicked acoustic guitar ballads, through to more robust art-rock jams. Laish’s plaintive tenor - rich, deeply textured and affecting - takes centre stage as he sings honest, self-reflective songs of relationships failed and survived.

            Danny formed the band Laish in Brighton in 2008 and became part of the Willkommen Collective (Sons of Noel and Adrian, The Leisure Society, Rozi Plain). Laish have released two records, their eponymous debut (2010), and Obituaries (2013, Folkwit Records), both recorded by Green at his home.

            Originating from Normandy, France and now based in Marseilles having lived for spells in Brighton, Bristol and Brussels, the itinerant composer / multi-instrumentalist Yann Tambour (aka Stranded Horse) began recording in 2001 under the name Encre, a project combining samples of strings, piano and voice. Following a series of album and EP releases under that name and having returned to his original instrument, the classical guitar, Yann started to experiment with the kora, building his own lighter, more compact versions of the instrument. Marrying this with his singular approach to the singer/songwriter mode, Stranded Horse (formerly Thee, Stranded Horse) came into being in the mid-noughties. Yann's instrument-building endeavours continue - his most recent creation being a chromatic kora with harp levers, made out of keno wood, maple and formica christened the 'formikora'.

            'Luxe' is the third Stranded Horse album after 'Humbling Tides' (2012) and 'Churning Strides' (2007), With five of its nine songs sung in English and the rest in French, the ensemble arrangements hinted at on 'Humbling Tides' find full bloom on 'Luxe'.

            There's a rare confidence to Emily Jane White's songwriting: it's at once generous and tough-minded, reflective and unsentimental. Her work shares some elements with folk music, but the term does not do justice to her ambitious songwriting and robust arrangements. White possesses a singular voice inspired by the raveled threads of the uncanny in American culture, including depression-era blues and classic works of gothic literature such as Toni Morrison's Beloved and Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper.

            Emily's previous two albums were composed of songs written by her but collaboratively arranged with her band prior to recording. "Blood / Lines" is a different, more personal record, one she was free to explore new directions and avenues, though not altogether by herself. The bass tracks were written by Darwin Meiners, the orchestral string by Shawn Alpay, and the drums by Nick Ott. Emily Jane White also feels blessed to have Marissa Nadler's presence on two tracks ('Faster Than The Devil', "Dandelion Daze') . "Blood / Lines" is a fresh, inspiring and somewhat experimental record in terms of song writing, recording and producing.
