Jasss - Weightless
Jasss
Weightless
2LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
26,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Jasss makes her head and body-turning album debut with Weightless, an absorbingly stark and spiky set of industro-dub concerns riddled with heavy inspiration from African rhythms, jazz and concrète electronics. After a trio of acclaimed 12”s for Berlin’s Mannequin and Amir Alexander’s Annunaki Cartel since 2016, iDEAL now give Jasss room to consolidate and expand her grizzled dancefloor structures to a full length episode that brutally dovetails with Joachim Nordwall and co’s unforgiving but compelling take on contemporary noise and industrial musics.Very much an antecedent of Spanish industrialists such as Diseño Corbusier, Xeerox / Krishna Goineau, or Mecanica Popular/Randomize, Jasss firmly builds on that heritage with a uniquely pensive balance of percussive suss, synthetic bite and reverberating spatial dynamics that makes her music heavy-as-sin and deliciously deft with it, patently forgoing Industrial music’s angry guy glare in favour of far more feminine and latinate pressure systems.She does so with an aching, puckered patience in the opener, Every Single Fish In The Pond, escalating from a lone cymbal motif and location recordings to a pulsating darkroom boldness by the end of an incendiary scene-setter, before really getting her fangs in with the clenched but driving EBM torque of Oral Couture, recalling a spiked Toresch or CTI hovering at the darkroom’s entrance.From here on in a dream sequence of events take place, morphing from febrile, hash-induced triplet pirouettes in Danza thru the martial free jazz/industrial cut-up of Cotton For Lunch, to a definitive apex of sprung, stepping cybergoth in Weightless, with a pause for Alberich-like reflection on Theo Goes Away, but the voodoo rises once again with the druggy swagger of Instantaneous Transmission of Information, and her stoic, blunt-edged mauler, To Eat With Dirty Hands.It’s rare to hear industrial music done with such variation and individual distinction as Weightless, making it shine in a field so often associated with greyscale and monotone signatures..

Mika Vainio & Joachim Nordwall - Monstrance
Mika Vainio & Joachim Nordwall
Monstrance
2LP | 2013 | EU | Reissue (Ideal)
22,99 €*
Release:2013 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Monstrance documents Mika Vainio & Joachim Nordwall reshaping guitars, drums and incendiary electronics at Einstürzende Neubauten’s Berlin studio back in 2010. The results were originally issued by Touch in 2013, with this new 2LP edition arriving on Nordwall’s iDEAL label five years later as a posthumous tribute and reminder of his erstwhile collaborator. In our opinion, it’s one of Vainio’s most crucial and absorbing collaborations; moving away from ice-cold electronic precision and into a more visceral re-rendering of Metal.
Nadine Byrne - Dreaming Remembering
Nadine Byrne
Dreaming Remembering
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Ideal)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Ectoplasm Girls’ Nadine Byrne lures listeners into woozy mental states on Dreaming Remembering, her soundtrack to a short film of the same name, providing a solo follow-up to A Different Gesture: Collected Soundtracks 2011-2012, and her first outing since Ectoplasm Girls’ New Feeling Come [2016], which were both issued by Joachim Nordwall’s ever-adventurous iDEAL Recordings.One of three Stockholm-based Byrne sisters along with Tanya, her partner in Ectoplasm Girls, and Ambra, who has recently provided EG’s live visuals, Nadine Byrne operates at the intersection of intuitive sonic and visual arts. Where Ectoplasm Girls tend to a bewitched sort of industrial experimentation, Nadine’s personal work is defined in terms of its relative, mutable electronic sleight of hand, with vocals handled by the mysterious Sarah Kim.

JH1.FS3 (Puce Mary & Jesse Sanes)
Loyalty
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
17,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This is deeply personal and sensual music. The listener is allowed to enter the inner zones of the private and artistic relationships between Frederikke Hoffmeier and Jesse Sanes. It is something beautiful, rare and very intimate that is communicated through words and restrained electronic experimentalism. It is almost violent in its openness. "Loyalty" is more than reading someones diary. "Loyalty" is more like reading someones mind.
Tilliander - Compuriddim
Tilliander
Compuriddim
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
16,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Andreas Tilliander (Mokira, TM404) returns with a plunging set of skewed techno dubs for Joachim Nordwall's iDEAL, his first new release for the label since the Bias Line 7” in 2010, and the Hateless album released a decade ago. RIYL Peder Mannerfelt, Frak, Tapes, Pole, Basic Channel!Andreas Tilliander has gone some way to making his studio a bastion of dub music within his home city, Stockholm ever since emerging with the Cliphop album for Raster-Noton in 2000 and subsequently releasing a whole slew of influential releases for labels including Mille Plateaux, Type, ideal, Kontra and Skudge. With the heady churn of Compuriddim dispensed under his own name, Tilliander returns to the site of some of his earliest outings, Joachim Nordwall’s iDEAL with a clutch of warped and murky dub ecologies firming up as some of the most absorbing iterations of his adroitly smoked-out sound.iDEAL were first turned on to Tilliander’s music via his Ljud (2001) LP for Mille Plateaux, and have established an occasional yet crucial relationship ever since, resulting in highlights such as the Dutty & Digital [2004] 12” and the Bias Line [2010] 7”. The Compuriddim set is the newest and most intoxicatingly textured addition to that collection; six tracks strong in pursuit of a elusive electro-acoustic geist that lives between the wires of his classic hardware, in the late night air of his studio. In keeping with the classic tenets of dub production - less-is-more efficiency, constant movement within space - he executes a sort of psychoacoustic telekinesis with the 6 parts of Compuriddim, skanking from the spiralling loops of drip bass and drums overlaid with windswept melodica in Twilight Circuit, to a grumbling but charming dub techno stepper on Mokirian Tekno Trak, then letting it all go loose and floppy with the sloshing Afracid deviation of FR777 Skank. Open Up The CV/Gate meanwhile kicks off the B-side at a bendy slow/fast bent lodged somewhere between Tin Man and AFX’s slow mo Analords or Cheetah tracks, followed up by the ragged dub chord stagger of Return Of The Super Tape, and the EP’s sweetest number, a bottom-heavy but dainty whorl of 303 dialogue seemingly detained for the most squashed and strange corners of the night or morning after.

Evol shut the game down with Ideal Acid - a, killer 20 minute rinse thru 303 acid cherries pitted and sequenced, tweak for tweak, into the wildest acid track ever made. No hype, this record is the maddest belter in Evol’s extensive catalogue, taking their obsession with Roland’s squelchy grey box to an ultimate, logical conclusion that leaves dancefloors turned utterly inside out and begging for track ID’s.

LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Ideal)
13,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Ideal recordings follow up aces by JASSS and Vanligt Folk with an album of insane, hand-cranked, lo-fi anti-music in Gabi Losoncy and Allen Mozek’s Good Area’s Macbeth, coming off the curled back of their sides for Kye, Recital, and Hanson Records. Sounds like a sedated Yeah You or Smegma jamming with anguished alley cats on a battery of garbage cans...plus, that artwork.

Vanligt Folk
Palle Bondo
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
12,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Ideal throw a total curveball with Vanligt Folk’s doomdub body music mutations on Palle Bondo, where the Oslo/Gothenburg trio drop their punk leanings in favour of a stark sound lodged somewhere between Mika Vainio, CS + Kreme, Fever Ray, Toresch, and even Autechre - TIPPED!!!The origins of the record are a bit cryptic and personal, which perhaps prompted the abrupt switch from their earlier styles to this, a more grown-up and pointed set of songs that vent their worries in a coolly gripping and cryptic style - not least because we can’t translate their Swedish lyrics.However, it’s not difficult to comprehend their music - a starkly spacious but invitingly introspective sound whose icy exterior is belied by a quietly seething rage against socio-political and medical convention. In the first song, that comes out as a subtly warped take on Scando ambient dub in Kostymfest/Sken Av Palmpsalmighet, whose combo of looming darkside pads, torchlit croon and pendulous snare cracks uncannily recalls a munted Toresch, before Är Du Min Dotters Ängel plumbs a cyberpunk dancehall style somewhere to the shadier side of Fever Ray and Simone Trabucchi’s STILL.Curiosity is only heightened on the flipside with Nipt/Gensangerin, where the vocals unavoidably conjure direct comparison with Karin Dreijer, but against a mystic synth backdrop redolent of that recent, amazing Laszlo Hortobagyi reissue, then calving off into a sumptuous mid-section of swooping subbass contours, dembow drums and pointillist hooks like something from Equiknoxx, only to finish with a wicked sample of Autechre’s Piezo strapped to gremlin vocals and spectral horror flick sounds on Mer Än Normal.Don’t miss this one.
High Boys - Dead Zones

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Jean-Louis Huhta (Dungeon Acid) and Ideal label head Joachim Nordwall unite once again as High Boys for an EP influenced by their love of old school acid, bad vibes, dub 7”s, William S Burroughs and 80s industrial music.The pair are already bandmates of sorts as part of the mighty Skull Defekts, but anyone familiar with Dungeon Acid’s much sought after catalogue or Nordwall’s sprawling, eclectic interests will no doubt already have their ears pricked for this one. The results are pretty much inline with what you’d expect: warehouse productions infused with all the grit and experimental determination you’d imagine.Described by Nordwall as “Claustrophobic industrial acid”, there’s a definite sense of dread permeating these tracks, situating them somewhere between the Nordic, gothic techno ambience of Varg and Mika Vainio’s analogue prowess. It will be interesting to see what happens if these two put their minds together for a full length, but on the evidence presented here High Boys is a project well worth tuning into...
Johan Zetterquist - Study For A Monument
Johan Zetterquist
Study For A Monument
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
18,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Gothenburg-based artist Johan Zetterquist delivers his debut album for the excellent iDEAL label, unspooling three extended pieces shaped like sound sculptures.It’s a profound drone metal variant recorded on a Gibson SG, amplifier and effects, live with no overdubs, slowly unfolding to reveal blistered shards of sound that recall everything from Stephen O’Malley to Maryanne Amacher’s seminal Sound Characters. Zetterquist gets a huge amount of mileage out of the contrast between extremes produced on his limited set up, taking us from quiet contemplation to visceral and apocalyptic metallic drones and back again, providing natural catharsis without ever being burdened by elaborate sequencing. This swell and hum offers many rewards to the attentive listener; aided by Boris Wilsdorf’s excellent and detailed recording that lends itself to attentive, immersive listening.

End Ground Second Edition

18,39 €* 22,99 € -20%
Release:2016 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
End Ground forms the third and final installment in a series of records documenting the solo prowess of Sunn 0)))’s Stephen O’Malley released on Sweden’s iDEAL Recordings. It was performed on electric guitar thru Sunn model T amps, and captured on a zoom H4 at Centre Cultural Suisse, Bad Bonn Carte Blanche, Paris, France, on 18th October 2013.In solo mode, stripped of his usual accomplices and collaborators, O’Malley is no less than an elemental force. His durational meditations absorb and consume with steady-handed wave after wave of charred, sustained, and sub-harmonised chords casting the mesmerising minimalist practice of La Monte Young into the physicality of Black Sabbath’s original, heavy metal die.The A-side/first half of this 45 minute performance features O’Malley tentatively coaxing out languorous riffs which turn the air around him to a pensive, vibrating mush. As the 2nd half dawns he begins to deliver more crushing blows, drawing out and subsiding the chords with a patented, gut-wrenching and vivifying power that transcends rock, avant-garde, minimalism - all of that - to awaken dormant senses not usually experienced with other musics or concise temporality. As with many of the most affective heavy drone recordings by Sunn 0))), among others, a modicum of patience is required in order to attain the right state for reception, but once your mind and body are malleable, the impact is deliciously visceral, primal and whelming.Colour us blown away, once again.

Release:2016 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Stephen O’Malley deploys the 2nd in a trio of documents of his improvisational prowess following his crushing Fuck Fundamentalist Pigs, which was brought forward in tribute to the Paris attacks and released in late 2015.The minimalist electric guitar mantra Dread Live was performed at Studio Helmbreker in Haarlem, Netherlands, September 2013, and recorded by Mathijs Ton on a hypercardiod ribbon mic with immaculate 70’s valve amp back line and technical support by the great Tos Nieuwenhuisen. The set was programmed as part of the opening of the Dread - Fear in the age of technological Acceleration exhibition at De Hallen Haarlem, curated by Juha Van’t Zelfde.It renders 40 minutes of Sunn 0)))’s O’Malley at his most depressive and heavy and is something akin to a slow-motion baptism by waves of tarry, blackened harmonic distortion, holding us under ’til we nearly pass-out from its sinking pressure. Needless to say - it’s insanely good.How low can you go? O’Malley knows.
Sewer Election - Malign
Sewer Election
Malign
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
16,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Swedish noise agitator Dan Johannsson bothers his good pals at iDEAL with a brilliant new LP following his Aska split album with Puce Mary in 2013. Malign by nature and intent, his overdue return to Joachim Nordwall’s label is a sorely strung out and decayed thing, a dank space hankering to be inhabited by listeners who want or need to be pushed into uncomfortable headspaces. If you're into anything from Jandek to Wolf Eyes to The Caretaker - this one's for you.Malign trades in a sense of depression and negativity that draws strength from the vacuum behind hope, vacillating forlorn, Loren Connors-like guitar melodies and rubbled shellac samples that recall The Caretaker with passages of fierce distortion and slurried atmospheric textures that project hellish images of waterboarding and abject terror on the mind. The guitar pieces are almost Jandek-like in their awkwardness, often morphing mid sentence into the kind of shuddering knots that Aaron Dilloway would be proud of, steadily toeing away hope in favour of full depressive immersion and feelings from the brink.Ultimately, though, the record wouldn’t be so convincing without its severe sense of sincerity, honestly conveying that pall of darkness without any ironic distance. It’s a proper downer in the best way.

Immense noise/techno slab from iDEAL featuring Varg, Sewer Election, Alexandra Atnif and CopleyMedal (Dais records’ Ryan Martin) with a spirit-rinsing, full spectrum noise and techno showcaseto leave you sore and breathless.Sweden’s indomitable Dan Johansson a.k.a. Sewer Election - whose Vidöppna Sår was among theearliest LPs released by PAN - goes first with a pyroclastic torrent of molten distortion whichcalves away to, strangely enough, reveal acoustic guitar strums and soggy location recordingsbefore handing over to keenly tipped American artist Alexandra Atnif, who really gets under theskin with a pair of thrumming rhythmic noise pieces demonstrating devilish discipline and aproper feel for biting-point tones. Keep an eye out for her new stuff.Trust Ryan Martin’s Copley Medal alias to reset the scene with Ger Lopig on the other side.Following from last year’s Trance Below The Streets collaboration with iDEAL bossman, JoachimNordwall, his latest sacrifice is an absorbing piece of drone torpor that could initially be aDeathprod piece or a Black Metal intro, but which eventually precipitates a deep, systolic pulse thatmarks up as the best we’ve heard from him.Then the prolific Varg takes us to the edge with the purified, headlong oscillations and noisepayload of Run No More Pts. I & II, primed to slice thru the floor or dank bedrooms withunrepentant, laser-guided precision.Supersolid.

Joachim Nordwall
The Ideal Black
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
12,74 €* 16,99 € -25%
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Oblique, intense and spirit-gnawing electro-acoustic exercises from The Skull Defekts founder / Ideal head honcho Joachim Nordwall, presenting a brilliantly stark album of direct and gnarly Machine energy that comes highly recommended if you’re into anything from Pan Sonic to Alessandro Cortini, Deathprod or Emptyset. Working with a bunch of tone generators fed thru a massive wall of amps at Elementstudion in Gothenburg, Nordwall isolates and fearlessly homes in on the recording space’s resonant frequencies until you can physically feel the room grinding, whining and shuddering in the kind of spasms that arch the spine and set your back teeth on edge. And he does it relentlessly for the whole record. The only steady variable in this elemental organism is the sense of rhythm; a metric, pulsing heave that keeps each piece’s tangibly immense weight pushing forward from the crack’d slap of a drum that pins The Ideal Black into place, to the quasi-step lurch of Great Mind of Fire, thru the Alessandro Cortini-Like impulse of Extreme Solutionfor a Simple Problem to the palsied, cog-ground rattle of System For Psychic Expansion and Black Out at its nether limits. In the rarest way, thanks to Joachim’s direct approach, the mixing of Linus Andersson, and Heba Kadry’s master at Timeless Mastering, Bushwick, The Ideal Black is about as close as you’ll hear to a 1-to-1 representation of pure, crushing tonal terror. A character-building exercise strongly tipped if you like the biting point sounds of: Kevin Drumm, Alessandro Cortini, Emptyset, Gottfried Michael Koenig.
Nate Young - Regression
Nate Young
Regression
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Wolf Eyes’ Nate Young’s Regression series has provided some of the most compelling dread-electronics spewed out by the North American underground in years, with instalments released by Demdike Stare’s DDS label and Aaron Dilloway’s Hanson, as well as NNA Tapes and others. It all began back in 2009 with this first volume issued by Joachim Nordwall’s Ideal label, an incredible set that’s now being released on vinyl for the first time ever, just in time for Wolf Eyes newly minted (Warp sponsored) Lower Floor imprint to make its debut this coming spring.Young is one of those artists whose output is instantly recognisable, his take on primitive electronics is both innovative and unnerving, and in recent years has really dominated the stylistic direction pursued by Wolf Eyes. It’s a kind of creaky, bare-boned deconstruction of classic horror scoring jolted by noise and industrial motifs, sounding somewhere between Demdike Stare’s early work, John Carpenter and Mica Levi’s by-now-classic soundtrack to Under The Skin. You could neither classify Regression as a Noise record nor an Ambient one, instead the synth dissections and tape treatments more closely reference early electronic music. ‘Trapped’ offers little of the claustrophobia suggested by its title, although the continual woody knocking sounds and filthy oscillations do engender a sense of unease, while ‘Dread’ brings to mind the Desmond Briscoe soundtrack to Nigel Kneale’s The Stone Tape. ‘Under The Skin’ returns to the more esoteric, intangible sound designs that characterised the album’s opening, writhing around in a spluttering, tactile fashion that’s at once sonically rather beautiful but deeply sinister, modulating through grisly synthesiser gestures while more textural, percussive sounds flood through dub-style tape delays. Young has an uncanny ability to make sonic extremes sound incredibly seductive, and this volume is perhaps the most engrossing exposition of that unique ability.
Dave Phillips - Rise
Dave Phillips
Rise
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Ideal)
18,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Frighteningly messed-up and compelling slab from Schimpfluch-Gruppe participant Dave Phillips, whom with Rise arguably establishes a crucial bridge between the continuum of radical European outsider art and NON or Halcyon Veil’s politically-charged, hyperreal soundscapes.Accompanied by some of the most fascinating sleeve notes we’ve read since, ooh, Pauline Oliveros’ Primordial/Lift, Dave Phillips’ Rise conveys a starkly impending warning about human greed and the tendency toward anthropocentric worldviews and “extractivism”, as opposed to stewardship, all rendered thru seven scenes scrolling from convulsive hyperviolence to detached, abyssal drone and clawing cacophony.We really couldn’t say whether Phillips, a tireless “purveyor of radical sound since the mid ‘80s” has heard or is even aware of the NON phenomena or Halcyon Veil’s abrasive aesthetics, but the textural and political similarities between those vital new labels and Phillips’ cranky ass are just too striking to ignore.Face first, he sucks us into the peristaltic paroxysms of We Know Enough To Know How Much We Will Never Know with a sense of arrhythmic chaos and trepidation that feels like Rabit and John Wiese imagining a world where feral populations fight over the last food and goods on the shelves, before Rise steps outside into a bombed out scape strafed with buzzing flies, and Culture Of Ethical Failure sinks into a fetid mire of soggy textures and deeply unpleasant torture chamber wretches dappled with minor key piano motifs.The Construct farther gnaws at the simulacra’s shaky resolution with visceral, unsettling white noise distortion, and Solastalgia / Ohnmacht feels like the infinite intro to a Venetian Snares calamity which never manifests, instead serving up grindcore rage in Only The Cockroaches Shall Survive To Rule The Earth, and leaving us petrified at what may come with the primordial orgy, A Grain of Salt (Goes a Long Way).OK, there’s definitely a distinction to be made between Phillips’ extreme angled weltanschauung and the hypermodern consciousness of NON and their affiliates, but it’s surely better to hear their relative similarities and, if you’re a DJ or listener who likes to mess around with their records, to crash and layer ‘em together in the mix where we’d imagine they’ll really come alive together.

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Finally, Ectoplasm Girls’ long awaited second album is here.Five years have elapsed since their surreally compelling TxN LP for iDEAL, in which time they’ve not so much as refined, but followed the same, winding paths to equally murky conclusions in New Feeling Come.The Stockholm-based duo of Tanya and Nadine Byrne, a.k.a. Ectoplasm Girls, sound like the progeny of some ancient, mythological creature as opposed to anything of this earthly realm. Their music distills traces of post-techno, doom metal and esoteric electronic pop into a skin-crawling residue that strongly resonates with their name.As with the aforementioned TxN - a unique highlight of the 2011 schedule - their follow-up spells out a mostly wordless grimoir of slow, writhing rhythms, bittersweet tones and phosphorescent texture incomparable with almost anyone else we can recall, bar maybe Coil or the that ghost band who soundtracked your dreams last night.Perhaps more so than on TxN, in this instance they feel more faded, detached from the listener, drifting thru 15 stages of séance-like ambience with an incorporeal presence belied only by their clammy sleight of hand and vaporous traces of breathing.It’s all dark as you like, but crucially with a sense of ambiguity that allows for interpretation depending your mood and ability to discern between poltergeist like trembles and the spirits of two possessed, possibly playful, Swedish girls. Either way it’s wicked and well worth the wait.

iDEAL and Börft pay tribute to their pal Joel Brindefalk (1975-2013) with the posthumous issue of a long-lost tape of concrète noise created in 1992 during a wavey weekend with his mates, Joachim Nordwall, Christian Topac and Johan Petersson.In making these recordings available for the first time, the closely-related labels reveal another side to Brindefalk’s known catalogue of ‘90s techno and warmer electronic dub stuff, one much more likely to broach black metal tropes and discomfiting concrète than anything warm or friendly.From the chaotic scramble of its opening couplet, the tape cuts into what sounds like a free astral jazz jam captured in bristling lo-fi, before flinging us back into the abyss with a druggy passage of hoary howls streaked with traffic noises.It gets no less wigged-out on the flip, serving as proper ear floss across four paper-cut-raw pieces of choked electronics, clattering hip hop cut-ups, and what could almost be the sound of an ogre doing the dishes.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Dense, roiling drone show from Joe DeNardo, who’s best known as Growing but, adopts the Ornament moniker to signify something altered from his usual practice. It starts out with a folksy sort of dissonance and soon starts to curdle and keen in fascinating formations**Joachim Nordwall of iDEAL says: “Protest Music” is the first release by Ornament, the recent project of Joe DeNardo from the band Growing. Ornament began playing shows in late 2012 around the New York City area, and recorded this album int he summer and fall of 2014 in Brooklyn, NY.While live Ornament shows have been known to test audience decibel tolerances with sounds ranging from guitar-based rawness to deeply effected, skrewed up percussion, the double entendre named “Protest Music” presents a distillation of those themes down to their essences, both positive and negative, utopian/dystopian. The complex sounds and images of “Protest Music” contend with the absolute grayness of existence.

Ectoplasm Girl, Tanya Byrne, returns to iDEAL with the uncanny, ten-stage solo noise hypnosis of ‘Unlearn’.Arriving a year on from her sister, Nadine Byrne’s incredible ‘A Different Gesture: Collected Soundtracks 2011-2012’, this suite reprises the repetitive trance states of their ‘TxN’ album, but at an enervated, slower pace and with more atonal, abstract textures in pursuit of some deeply personal, powerful and psychedelic spirit.It’s equal measures industrial ambient, black metal, and ritual electronics, dissolving her ego and diffusing it amidst a spectrum of enchanted voices, rubbling synth swells and frayed tape loops calling for comparison with Atelecine’s L.A. noir noise in ‘Teamdream’, or the bunkered chamber techno creations of 51717 in ‘Soldier’, as well as the most gutted G.O.D. output with the loping ‘Fleshworld’, or even Wold at his most mystic, black mecha in the drone pits of ‘555-Forget’.It’s a matter of life and death, and the hallucinatory, psychedelic space between those states - therefore don’t expect it to be pleasant or easy-going, as life itself.

Invasive psychoacoustic acid killer from EVOL for the sympathetic freaks at Sweden’s iDEAL.Continuing a pursuit of altered states induced by pure frequency manipulation, ‘Purple Melters’ is the fourth work in a series that started with ‘Proper Headshrinker’ (Editions Mego, 2013), a series which will also see a release on Diagonal later this year.Essentially, it’s acid house without the house, drilling down to the 303’s micro phase variations and psychedelic sleight-of-mind conjuring a sense of movement from ostensibly static phrases.Granted, you have to be a bit of a sadist to enjoy this, but really only in the same sense as a proper hardcore hooligan who gets their rocks off jackin’ in man-made synthetics to amplified music while gobbling illicit chemicals from a Dutch laboratory supplemented by synthetic hormone-infused energy fizz.
