Isabela Wolf emailed me a link with lovely tunes but no info. In this spot I normally say where’s she’s from and what she does. But there’s nothing. In protest… I’ve used the wrong artwork (above). It’s from one of her other songs. Sorry, truth is I just liked the penguins. Have a listen to [...]
Posting the new Boards Of Canada seems kinda pointless because, well, its already all over the interwebs, but… it is Boards Of Canada so – here we go! The Scottish duo have teased us for weeks with cryptic clues (or more accurately – clever marketing) surrounding their forthcoming album ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ (out June 10 via [...]
Amazing song, kinda like having your head wrapped in a cloud for seven minutes! ’How Light Works’ (free download) is essentially an instrumental with some vocal effects that will drag you into a day dream. Note – not to be confused with the electronic duo out of the UK also called Linea Aspera. Linea [...]
Gorgeous new tune from London’s Sky Between Leaves, this one will put you in a new place. Hopefully a better one! ‘O.B.E’ is an instrumental swoon that tip toes genres lines, but for what its worth the most common tags that stick are krautrock and dream pop. Sky Between Leaves released their debut, self-titled single [...]

His latest instrumental work [...]
Instrumental post rockers Apricot Rail release their second album ‘Quarrels’ featuring ‘Basket Press‘ (free download) on February 25 via Hidden Shoal Recordings. The Perth-based six piece shift between pretty melodies and different textures… when was the last time you heard woodwinds on a post rock tune!? The “soft, soft, oh my gawd crescendo” moments are avoided in [...]
The second serving from Sydney’s Au.Ra is the instrumental track ‘Jane’s Lament’ (posted online late last year). The duo, Tim Jenkins (Parades) and Tom Crandles (Colours) focus on wailing guitars this time round (but still keep it light and floaty). Au.Ra’s debut EP is yet to be announced.

Swedish instrumentalist Elias Krantz is re-issuing his acclaimed record ‘Night Ice’ on vinyl through Stockholm’s Country & Eastern. His latest single ‘Young Ends’ (available for free download) is a sprawling guitar led piece that introduces xylophones, wailing solos and delicately mixed backing vocals. Brilliant work!

Look at the artwork! Now press play. Its a perfect mix of watery atmospherics, submerged tones and otherworldly soundscapes. The aptly titled album ‘The Oceanic Tomes‘ is available now from Minneapolis studio project, A Place of Owls. Influenced by the work of Brian Eno and Rosetta, this is for fans of drone, post rock and abstract [...]
