The England based ambient-wave project of Savanh Phaophanit under the guise of palence releases the EP Telophase tomorrow.
From the five track EP – created through a ’70s reel to reel tape splicing various percussive objects, which were latterly synthesised, with some dashes of an ’80s guitar affords the music a luxurious backwash of analogue warmth as displayed in the closing piece on the the release – Scarp.
The England based chillwave project Channel Swimmer releases the LP Souvenirs on the 14th.
Today seems to be a day for introducing lengthy releases and another suggestion – Souvenirs (available on bandcamp) which extends to twenty one tracks – each worth the time spent in their company – to my mind.
Turn down the lights – lay back and allow the second song Look Up, Paradise to flow through the room leaving the listener with the sense that they are floating on the Bahr Lut.
Within the past few hours the England based dark-acoustic duo The Moon Apes released the EP Six Of Seven.

I have spent the past couple of days with an earache which continually sends a dull throb through my brain and despite various medicament’s I have not been able to discover much relief until Six Of Seven (available on bandcamp) a four track, eleven minute reveal came bursting through the speakers with a sub-woofer testing soundtrack that minds of a balladeer roaring out in the late evening.
The uncomplicated guitar combines with an equally direct drum-kit bouncing both across the walls in fulminating mood with an ill-tempered vocal piloting the 特別攻撃隊 and delivering an explosion of sound in which the listener lays in pleasure within the fulsome assault.
The most recent track to surface Faces is a reflective on the trials and tribulations of life around and although the melancholic piano chords, pacing and brooding electronics give the song a sad countenance there is a glimmer of optimistic light within the transfixing composition.
