ZU93 - Mirror Emperor
A free-jazz group who've collaborated in the past with the likes of Mats Gustafsson and Eugene Chadbourne as well as producing some mightily heavy Boris-style sludge rock, might not seem likely collaborators with Current 93's David Tibet. Nevertheless House of Mythology follow up their 2016 Tibet collaboration with Killing Joke's Youth with this striking hybrid which they've appropriately named Zu93. Mirror Emperor is the latest instalment of what looks like a bumper year for the mystagog of Hastings. This record follows closely on from the rather lacklustre The Stars on Their Horsies which is to serve as a warm-up for a new C93 album due out in October on the day the band play London alongside old mates Nurse With Wound.


Philip Sulidae - Ramshead
Ramshead offers up a selection of dense, slowly morphing, and often thickly weaved sound-art built around manipulated field recordings made in Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales Australia.  The release appears as the form of an Ltd CD( of 200 hand number copies)- on  Unfathomless- it’s presented in a double sided color sleeve packaging- which features linear note card, slip sleeve, and outer clear plastic sleeve.
Fred Frith And Hardy Fox - A Day Hanging Between Heaven And Earth
Here we have a long-lost collab between two of the more distinctive & unique figures from within the wider experimental genre. Fred Frith first became known in the 70’s for his work with celebrated avant-rock collective Henry Cow, before going onto work with the likes of Brian Eno, John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and many others. Hardy Fox was one of the key songwriters behind long-running avant-pop collective The Residents- working with the band for 40 plus years, before leaving the project in 2015 due to ill health.
Xtro - Xtro(Blu Ray/CD)
In the early 1980’s, as the British film industry was floundering-near-dead along came Xtro. A decidedly quirky at times surreal 'n' gory horror/ Sci-Fi film that featured an impressive enough budget, good acting talent, and some truly bonker ideas. Here on Second Sight, we have a new, & pretty much definitive reissue of the film- featuring a Blu Ray presentation of the film with a big bag of extras, the films CD soundtrack, and a perfectly bound booklet.
Coil - Black Light District- A Thousand Lights In A Darke
1996’s Black Light District- A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room has always stood as one of the most mind-altering, yet still relatively approachable releases in the Coil canon. With its largely instrumental blend of queasy ambience, darkly psychedelic-yet- often memorable electronica, off-kilter -yet slowly head-bobbing beats, and weaves of disorientating  sampling.
Placenta Lyposuction - The Bleackness
"The Bleakness" is a relatively new release from the well-known HNW project Placenta Lyposuction, released on CDr by Void Singularity Recordings. The label was newly established in February 2018 by label head Tom Rushton, who was also responsible for the prior Synesthetic Perception Recordings and the project E.E.E.E. among others.
