Ummagma recently posted a hypnotic new video for ‘Galacticon’, taken from their latest EP ‘Frequency’ out through Moon Sounds Records (available here). Filmed in Ukraine, the video features icy visuals and some brilliant aerial shots (as premiered by Exclaim). The Ontario-based duo collaborated with a number of guest artists for the EP, including Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie and Lights That Change. Ummagma have also been busy working with A.R. Kane on new material. A.R. Kane recently announced their live return with a spot at Primavera Sound in June, and a headline show in Manchester next month (their first in 20 years)!

Half – ‘Mind Maps’

‘Mind Maps’ is absolutely stunning! It’s the work of UK producer Half who is a master of ambient guitar instrumentals, influenced by Boards of Canada, M83 and Brian Eno (among others). Half’s new full length ‘Here Lies’ is out on April 29 via Border Series and it’s sounding amazing.

Fait – ‘Solace’

fait-profile

Fait is on her way to Bigsound next week and she’s marking the occasion with a new single and video. ‘Solace‘ is a beautiful cinematic piece, a slow burning instrumental with a deep, deep bass line. The apocalyptic tune is a tension builder, and a reminder of how brilliant she is! For those new to the party, Fait is the work of Perth multi-instrumentalist Elise Higgins, who performs live with three members from Hyla (Rob Stephens, Mike Antonas and Darrell Sundai). Believe it or not but Fait sounds even better on stage (see dates).

Flying Saucer Attack – ‘Instrumental 7’

Holy s**tballs Batman, Flying Saucer Attack has returned! The experimental space rockers put their stamp on the early nineties but called it a day more than a decade ago. However, the Bristol duo (David Pearce and Rachel Brook) aren’t returning in their original form, instead, David has composed fifteen instrumental pieces for the ‘Instrumentals 2015’ LP (out July 17). This is left field awesomeness for the die-hards, who should be pleased with the first taste, ‘Instrumental 7’.

‘Yes, I’m Breathing’ is our first listen to Solkyri‘s second full length ‘Sad Boys Club’, out this week via Bird’s Robe! The Sydney-based four piece have been dishing out apocalyptic instrumentals for almost a decade. The experience shows on their latest, it’s a lashing of reverb-heavy post rock performed with math-rock precision! European fans can catch them on tour through Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Austria and Poland next month.

Fait returns with an epic new video for ‘Slow Glow’, taken from her debut EP ‘Atmosphere’ (available now). It’s a gorgeous cinematic work from director Matsu, filmed across 500km of West Australian landscape with model Shelby Lee. It’s the second video from the Perth-based instrumentalist (Elise Higgins), and follows the equally huge clip ‘Surrender To‘. Can’t get enough!
