TNC6 - Sekundenschlaf
TNC6
Sekundenschlaf
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Sleep-deprived, breakbeat-driven vignettes of unclear authorship, from somewhere west of Lake Lagoda, near the Russia-Finland border. Sekundenschlaf has significant points of correspondence with contemporary European electronic music, as well as the golden age of (early) jungle and ambient techno. But its response to tradition, and to the zeitgeist, is idiosyncratic to say the least - with an atmosphere and psychogeography rooted in the tranquility and majesty of Western Russian nature, and the anxiety and distress of the country's post-Soviet working class. Pastoral calm meets dissonance and unease. The music has a loose, improvised feel, but its arrangements are intricate, its melodies iridescent: cascading arpeggios that stir a sense of optimism and renewal, sighing stringpads that evoke the deepest melancholy. Rhythms simultaneously hyped-up and burnedout, collapsing in on themselves as they race to destinations unknown. All bound together with field recordings of eavesdropped conversations, blurred into abstraction, a droning subliminal menace.
Carla Dal Forno - The Garden
Carla Dal Forno
The Garden
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
13,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
These four obliquely confessional dispatches from the edge zones of feeling mark both a refinement of Carla's dub-damaged, inward-looking bedsit pop (as heard on her 2016 debut album 'You Know What It's Like) and an impressive evolutionary leap.
Bremen - Eclipsed
Bremen
Eclipsed
2LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
A new double-LP of glacial electronics, strung-out drone-punk and smouldering space-rock minimalism from Bremen, the Swedish duo of Jonas Tiljander (Brainbombs) and Lanchy Orre (Brainbombs, Totalitär). The band's points of departure are specific: a particular organ sound from J.A. Seazer 1970s recordings, the squalid alien guitar tone of Chrome, the cranked, psychic roar-out riffage of Hawkwind, the melancholic mode of Swedish jazz pianist Jan Johansson, minimalism from La Monte Young to Eleh, “cold eighties electronic sound", and sloppy, lo-fi psychedelic rock from the likes of Pärson Sound and Träd Gräs och Stenar. Tiljander's icily poised synth/organ drones and the grieving cosmic howl of Lanchy's guitar dominate the landscape, but Bremen's instrumental palette has also expanded to include various percussion treatments, saxophone, strings, dissolved vocal fragments. Their exploratory jamming, overdubbing and dub-savvy mixing yield a music of unbelievable eloquence and physicality, and Eclipsed is another masterpiece of black-hole psychedelia from one of the greatest underground rock'n'roll units on the planet.
Tarquin Manek - Tarquin Magnet
Tarquin Manek
Tarquin Magnet
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
14,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
A unique synthesis of time-dilating folk-jazz romanticism, brittle chamber dub and plasmic post-techno electronics, Tarquin Magnet is Australian artist Tarquin Manek's first full solo release on Blackest Ever Black, but by no means his first contribution to the label: he is one half of Tarcar (with Carla dal Forno) and a member of F ingers (with dal Forno and Sam Karmel).Manek has been busy elsewhere, too: he released Th Duo, an LP made under his LST alias, on Another Dark Age earlier this year.The disturbed and enchanted environments of Tarquin Magnet are the result of improvisation, domestic field recording and fastidious editing; for all its rough textures and strange juxtapositions, this is masterfully mixed and arranged music, its deep spatial dynamics and higher dub logic powerfully apparent.
Fingers - Hide Before Dinner
Fingers
Hide Before Dinner
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Deeply drugged, synth-daubed death-folk and DIY electronics: acutely psychedelic, inscrutable but emotional, sunken but prone to soaring, with flashes of horror too.Beautifully conjures the mirth and murk of childhood summers...a relatable surburban gothic...grazed knees, hide-and-seek, nettle-stings.Trampled flowerbeds and failing light. Ghouls in your neighbour's garden. Think Nico meets Dome or Alison Statton wandering The Pickle Factory after dark...If you dream you die, you die.

Antigravity
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Antigravity is a new trio album from legendary trumpeter Jac Berrocal and two fellow travellers in the French avant-garde, David Fenech and Vincent Epplay. A lugubrious mise-en-scène in which ice-cold outlaw jazz meets musique concrète, DIY whimsy and dubwise studio science, all watched over by the lost souls and hungry ghosts of rock ‘n roll The Berrocal/Fenech/Epplay trio's first album together, Antigravity is a richly imagined universe combining original compositions and détourned standards.

Sleep Heavy
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
15,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Jabu's debut-album contains tripped-out, broken-hearted, downtempo R&B/street-soul and supremely atmospheric, introspective electronics.

Jabu is comprised of vocalist-lyricists Alex Rendall and Jasmine Butt, complemented by producer Amos Childs.
Amateur Childbirth - Your Afterlife Is Cancelled
Amateur Childbirth
Your Afterlife Is Cancelled
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
15,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Amateur Childbirth's caustic end-times worldview inevitably prompts comparisons with Current 93, but also a wider (non-)tradition of caustic and disturbed loner psych that includes Simon Finn, Patrik Fitzgerald, Robyn Hitchcock, Peter Jefferies and Roy Harper. 'Your Afterlife Is Cancelled' is a depressive tour de force from one of the most crushingly eloquent voices in the Australian underground.

15,19 €* 15,99 € -5%
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Awkwardly Blissing Out is a landmark recording from one of Australia's most extraordinary, visionary freak units. Expect a deep and sensuous trip that nonetheless prompts some uncomfortable - or at any rate bittersweet - reflection on what we are, what we were, and what we might have been.
Pessimist - Pessimist
Pessimist
Pessimist
2LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
19,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Pessimist makes drum'n'bass work as techno by combining themonotone, infinite-horizon quality of the latter with therhythmic swerve and soundsystem heft of the former. At timesthis music feels like the missing link between British MurderBoys and Source Direct, or what might have happened if late'90s UK junglists had listened more closely to Chain Reaction.

Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Themes' contains five tracks of darkside slither from somewhere under London, in which the dread energy of grime and bleep techno get distilled into pungent electro-acoustic ooze. Paranoid street music meets the cosmic disturbances of musique concrete!

LP | 2016 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This LP picks up where the nerve-damaged exotica of 2015's 'A Shimmering Replica' left off. Expect pungent psychedelia that feels equal parts cosmic and aquatic. What Todd wrenches out of his instrument these days is a language unto itself - a helical, grieving howl. A (super)natural efflorescence beyond earthly description. Ur-rock and post-everything!

Af Ursin - Aura Legato
Af Ursin
Aura Legato
LP | 2016 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Blackest Ever Black presents a new vinyl edition, and the first CD edition, of Af Ursin's 2005 masterpiece Aura Legato.Af Ursin is the alter ego of Finnish autodidact composer/improviser Timo van Luijk. His work is rooted in the use of acoustic instruments (wind, percussion, strings), but his special sensitivity to the timbral qualities of each instrument, and his deft blurring of them, results in a sound-world that is mysterious, amorphous and hallucinatory, full of suggestive shadows, creaks and whispers.Van Luijk's process begins always with pure improvisation: music played in an intuitive, sensual way, without the employment of conscious technique.He performs and overdubs each instrumental component himself, and out of this process micro-structures and loose arrangements emerge: the piece becomes an improvised composition.Aura Legato is one of van Luijk's darker and more acutely psychedelic offerings: a work of profound interiority, but one that also conjures images of old Europe and fin-de-siècle decadence - dabblings in Thelema, the fog of the opium-den - and has earned comparisons to Third Ear Band, Nurse With Wound, Mirror and HNAS.Fully remastered and housed in die-cut sleeve with gold detailing and individually hand-glued labels.

Dalhous
Composite Moods Collection Volume 1: House #44
2LP | 2016 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
House Number 44' is the first volume of 'The Composite Moods Collection', a new cycle of Dalhous recordings that examines the relationship between two individuals co-habiting the same con-fined space. Longtime followers of Dalhous will observe that 'House Number 44' contains some of their sparsest, most malevolent-sounding electronic music to date, but some of their most disarmingly beautiful too.
Secret Boyfriend - Memory Care Unit
Secret Boyfriend
Memory Care Unit
LP | 2016 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
14,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Secret Boyfriend is the solo project of North Carolina's Ryan Martin, who is also one half of Boyzone (not THAT Boyzone, unfortunately) and founder of the Hot Releases label (a catholic endeavour that has seen him release records from the cream of the contemporary N.C. underground as well as reissuing classic sides by the likes of Maurizio Bianchi, Ghedalia Tazartes and Ashrae Fax). 'This Is Always Where You've Lived' is Secret Boyfriend's first LP release and unquestionably Ryan Martin's most potent, fully realised work to date. These twelve songs from under the floorboards offer a heart-rending but hard-edged synthesis of downer folk, tape experiments, noise etudes and basement-mildewed pop for edgeland fuck-ups, loners and wanderers. Recommended if you like Peter Jeffries, Flaming Tunes, Storm Bugs, etc.
Six Six Seconds - Tearing Down Heaven
Six Six Seconds
Tearing Down Heaven
10" | 2015 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
10,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
A very necessary stand-alone release for Six Six Seconds' ‘Tearing Down Heaven', which originally appeared on the 2012 Downwards compilation So Click Heels. Written and performed in Berlin by the elusive Eden, and deftly recorded and mixed by Karl O'Connor, ‘Tearing' was the comp's stand-out: a piece of drugged, darkly rapturous dream-pop in which the abyssal swoon of shoegaze meets a harsher, more pernicious order of psychedelic rock minimalism. This 10”/digital edition on Blackest Ever Black features a slightly extended version of 'Tearing Down Heaven', and a stunning new “reprise”, which homes in on the original's roaring, phantasmic electronics, unravelling its complex webs of feedback and high-end scorch into a masochistic drone-raga for eternally thwarted lovers. Freshly remastered by Matt Colton, released in a one-off vinyl edition of 500 copies.
Barnett & Coloccia - Weld
Barnett & Coloccia
Weld
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
12,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Faith Coloccia and Alex Barnett return to Blackest Ever Black with their second duo album, Weld; working with synthesizers, affected vocals, raw electrical noise, field recordings, EVP techniques, tape manipulation and drum machines to create a music at once lucid and mystic. Its songs embody various experiential philosophies and objectives: searching for the sacred in the forgotten and supposedly useless; exploring the meaning of “natural”; listening for the pulse of the ancient; using technology both to materialise memory and to dream a folklore for a future age. Coloccia and Barnett’s ambition is apparent early on in the stately, medievalist keyboard/choral poetics of 'Truth Teller’, moving through the agitated wormhole techno of 'Dreamsnake’, to the white light-emitting, near-symphonic plainchant of 'Healer’. 'Blight’’s zero-hour synth pulsations are first interrupted, then engulfed, by an extra-terrestrial broadcast of piercing bell and glass-tones; 'AM Horizon’ is pitched bewitchingly between Prophet-5 pulp futurism and earthbound, atavistic dread; 'Agate Cross’’s baroque harmonic sequence disintegrates at its very climax, cooling and dissipating into a deep starfield of pure tone. 'Ash Grove’ and 'Rose Eye’ are exhilarating exercises in contemporary musique concrète: complex timbral constructs in which Coloccia’s disembodied glossolalia, swooping strings and other nameless sonic spectra conspire to evoke extra-dimensional space and the highest spiritual drama. Weld speaks its own distinctive dream-language, but we would certainly recommend it to anyone enamoured of the brittle sci-fi synth-scapes in Caroline K’s Now Wait For Last Year, the amorphous electronics of Beatriz Ferreyra’s recent work, Conrad Schnitzler’s more gothic moments, and even the gravest metaphysical reckonings of a Stockhausen or a Rozmann.

11,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
"We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be." A modern-day revenge tragedy in four parts. Symmetrical, finespun, almost courtly; but quick-tempered with it, and far from blood-shy. A picture emerges: domestic disturbance, pissing on the compost heap, noise complaints from hateful neighbours. Sulking, pouting, goading. Cold leaves and Christmas. Body-clocks betrayed, seasonal adjustment disorders. Collecting bottles to smash in the carpark across the road. Marijuana and make-believe. A flaming bower of unbliss.
Raspberry Bulbs - Privacy
Raspberry Bulbs
Privacy
LP | 2014 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
15,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Their second full-length offering for Blackest Ever Black, following 2013’s Deformed Worship, Privacy is a defence of the anti-social, the secretive, and the inward-looking; a call to resist the contemporary obsession with “connection”, exhibitionism and peer approval, and to claw back ownership of the self. It’s only then that the real battles begin.
Cut Hands - Festival Of The Dead
Cut Hands
Festival Of The Dead
2LP | 2014 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
16,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
It is said that the gods of the dead demand you ritualistically commit to each intensely hot beat of the ceremonial drum. Now, here, is the music for their celebration of death, music to dance together with, to oblivion, a music both spectacular and ecstatic where, like never before, the spirits of santería and vaudou mix with raw electricity into burning diabolical polyrhythms. We here present Cut Hands and Festival Of The Dead.

Officer!
Dead Unique
2LP | 2014 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
15,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
Blackest Ever Black presents to youDead Unique, an album by Officer! recorded in 1995 but - outrageously, inexplicably - never before released into the public domain. This then is not a reissue or a revival; it’s a new record that just happens to have been maturing in the cask for, oh, a little shy of 20 years.
Secret Boyfriend - This Is Always Where You've Lived
Secret Boyfriend
This Is Always Where You've Lived
LP | 2013 | UK | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
11,69 €* 12,99 € -10%
Release:2013 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
This Is Always Where You've Lived is SB’s first LP release and unquestionably his most potent, fully realised work to date. Twelve songs from under the floorboards: a heart-rending but hard-edged synthesis of downer folk, tape experiments, noise etudes and basement-mildewed pop for edgeland fuck-ups, loners and wanderers; recommended if you like Peter Jeffries, Flaming Tunes, Storm Bugs, etc. Arguably comes closer than any previous BEB release to articulating the “mesmerised suburban daydreams of our youth".
Lustmord - The Word As Power
Lustmord
The Word As Power
2LP | 2013 | EU | Original (Blackest Ever Black)
28,99 €*
Release:2013 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Although Lustmord is often seen to epitomize “dark ambient”, it would be more accurate to say that his work simply goes deeper, further, than conventional ambient dares, or is able, to go. Half a decade in the making, The Word As Power is his new studio album and an exploration of ritual music without dogma.
