[2012] Kreng - Works for Abattoir Ferme [2007 - 2011]

Our affection for Pepijn Caudron's ghoulishly absorbing music as Kreng is no secret - 2009's L'Autopsie Phenomenale De Dieu and last year's Grimoire both made a big impression on us. But those two records, it turns out, are the tip of a particularly chilling iceberg: as a long-time member of renowned theatre troupe Abattoir Ferme, he's been crafting suitably arcane ambiences and gothic overtures for their theatre performances for several years now. Finally, the best of these works from 2007-2011 are being collected by Miasmah across four LPs, compiled here in one box set, and it's a hugely engrossing, occasionally disturbing haul indeed.

[2012] The Soft Moon - Zeros

Exhilarating sophomore album from the neo cold wave vanguard. Lest we forget, Luis Vasquez's self titled 2010 debut as The Soft Moon was one of that year's finest, ranking highly in end of year lists by Fact, Wire magazine, The Quietus, and ourselves; a flawless revitalisation of early '80s post-punk and wave music's choicest memes. Arguably, 'Zeros' surpasses that LP in bounds, knuckling down to a seething, vicious blend of industrial strength 4AD/Joy Division basslines, butterfly-knifed guitar chops and leather-bound beats played with shark-eyed fervor and seared under arcing, apocalyptic synth skies. In classic style it was mostly written on the road while touring in support of his debut as a five piece band.

[2012] Andy Stott - Luxury Problems

Following on from a pair of Extended Players released in 2011 ("Passed Me By" / "We Stay Together") Andy Stott returns to Modern Love with 'Luxury Problems', an 8 track album of new material recorded over the last 12 months. Five of the tracks on the album feature the voice of Alison Skidmore, Andy's onetime Piano teacher whom he hadnt seen since he was a teenager back in 1996. There was no grand gesture in mind, it just sort of happened - but after almost a year of studio work the result is really quite unlike anything you'll have heard from him before.

02 Lost And Found
03 Sleepless
04 Hatch The Plan
05 Expecting
06 Luxury Problems
07 Up The Box

[2012] Demdike Stare - Elemental [UPDATE]

As promised, Demdike Stare collect their 'Elemental' album to a double-disc edition, and as warned, it's a morphed beast, comprising alternate versions and additional material in bleakest post-industrial fashion. Arguably this is their finest work to date, the result of two heads realising their ambition without compromise and in a typically enigmatic, shadowy way. By sonic sleight of hand, the smoke and mirrors effect of the sound design is potently disorienting, suspending our disbelief with masterfully immersive results. Each new scene or "cue" is rendered with meticulous attention to detail and mise en scene as to enhance the album's labyrinthine effect. But, it's what isn't revealed that leaves most to the imagination, keeping listeners guessing 'til the bitter, and when rendered/blended with such expansive, textured nuance, there are dark corners and ghostly snags which only reveal themselves after repeated listens, collaring us like a movie you've watched for the umpteenth time only to notice something startlingly new that's been there all along...
