Ümlaut - In The First Wave
Ümlaut is a U.S. electronic project from Queens, New York founded by composer Jeff Düngfelder.  His work appears to be thematically & conceptual focused on the elements of sound and silence, and the random interaction between both. Finding more in the spaces between and expanding on those to help the composition have a more minimalist presentation &  feel.
Warui Yume - Tojikome Raremashita
Tojikome Raremashita is a decidedly atmospheric, at times almost creepy walled noise release- bringing together murky industrial walling, with moody textural detail. It’s a two thirty minute track affair that comes in either the form of a pro-pressed CDR or digital download.
Angharad Davies, Rie Nakajima and Alice - Dethick
Recorded over two days last summer in a rural English church Dethick is a ten track album of noise bound-yet often-acoustic improv, and brooding-to-angular modern composition. As a release it rather brought to mind the work of Steve Parry, and his project Hwyl Nofio- in the way it sonically recreates the barren, worn, weathered, and at times sinister landscapes/ buildings of abandoned industrial & rural British island- with its blend of yawning & sawing string work, grim pitch shifting drone work, and manic-to-skewed noise making utilizing various found items.
Rien - Untitled
Untitled finds this Stockholm based walled noise project rendering up two twenty minute examples of thick-yet- quietly captured static studies, which bring together blunt low-end with hazed crackle, crunch and subtle textural detail. This release appeared in March of this year on Ominous Recordings in both tape & digital edition- the tape came in an edition of eight copies which are sadly all gone now- so the digital version is the only option.
Who? - Who?(Blu Ray)
Who? Is a 1974 thriller starring Elliott Gould and Trevor Howard and directed  by Jack Gold, the man most famous for directing John Hurt in the Quentin Crisp penned, The Naked Civil Servant (1975) and Aces High (1976) starring Malcolm McDowell and Christopher Plummer.
Rapoon - Darker By Light
Robin Storey's Rapoon project has existed since the early 90's, formed after his departure from industrial soundscape collective Zoviet France.  Rapoon's music is renowned for its surreal dream-like feeling and convincing tribal atmosphere.  As I generally prefer Storey's classic earlier work, it is with great pleasure that I approach the task of reviewing this 1996 album, Darker By Light, now re-issued in remastered form by Zoharum.  As Rapoon's discography is quite vast, this album is one that I had never previously listened to.
