Departing from the band based setup of previous releases, Acolytes continue their exploration of loop based paradigms with Rupture. The release expands upon the murky jarring patchwork asthetic of the 2012 re/lease, replacing brooding song structures with a more driving, visceral and relentless sound. Rupture encap/sulates the paranoia and agnst felt in an increasingly unrecognisable world. Liquified rhythms attempt to define an unmappable headspace typified by IO overload and wired hyperactivity, become mired in deep delays and sedate un/ease.While ostensibly computer music, tracks such as "feelings 2" deviate from t... + INFO
It seems like -- ooh, let-s see -- at least 18 of your Earth years since this duo gave us -Nausea-, back in those heady, queasy post-millennium Electroclash days. 6 albums and countless (nearly) EPs and singles later, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller present us with This Behavior as ADULT. All caps, full stop / period> record store peeps like us love them. Nic and Adam recorded it in a wood cabin in the wilds of North Michigan in the freezing mid Winter, should be a suitably chilled and frosty one then.

Perceptions is the debut vinyl release from Age Coin, the Danish duo of Simon Formann and Kristian Emdal whose work you may have previously encountered as members of the Copenhagen based bands Lower, Var and Girlseeker. Originally issued as a short-run cassette on the Posh Isolation label in 2012, Alter is pleased to rescue this powerful industrial gem from potential obscurity and present a vinyl edition. Two long pieces of slowly developing wind-tunnel noise and air-craft hangar electronics that bring us close to the reality of what Mika Vainio and Esplendor Geometrico jamming over a desolate and barren landscape mig... + INFO
For her 2019 full-length 'Chords', experimental Swedish musician Ellen Arkbro adopted a more minimalist approach, focusing on the immediate qualities of sound and elegantly expanding the tonal capacities of acoustic instruments using precise, subtle synthesis.
Imaginary soundtrack to the lost 1976 Russian/American dystopian classic, Disquiet.Russian occultists Old Komm collaborate with the south Californian dons of austere electronics Ger/man Army, bringing to life the made up soundtrack to a film that never was. Disquiet tells the story of a child born to a desolate, post/apocalyptic world, war torn and fractured by greed. Organ tones and broken exoteric bumps coexist with dark ambient themes and cavernous beats. Remnants of wry memories, smothered dreams, dim visions of a world that never was.
The debut full/length by Autumns, the solo project of Christian Donaghey who lives in Derry, Northern Ireland. Fans of a.o. SPK, Whitehouse, or Cabaret Voltaire should check this out.
Barnett is a Chicago-based electronic musician known for his work with dark ambient group Oakeater and collaborative work in Barnett & Coloccia on Blackest Ever Black, in addition to a handful of cassettes and collaborative projects. Chew From the Mind is a raw yet elegant synthesizer album that is surreal, beautiful and evocative of previous horror-score theme work, while expanding his sound toward more raw electronic influences. The album draws from a heady mixture of early new wave and synth-pop, '70s-era Miles Davis, science fiction literature and the past 15 years of the American underground. Within its thematic ... + INFO

These are sound collages, taking snippets of work from local sound artist Emeka Ogboh, former Fela sidesman Duro Ikujenyo and Afro jazz saxophonist Orlando Julius, and melding them coarsely with ambient backing...
