‘Pale Ravine’ is an album which manages to blend elements of classical music with electronic music, yet there is something decidedly different which sets it apart from the competition. While there are elements that can be compared with contemporaries such as Max Richter, Marsen Jules or Ryan Teague, Deaf Center is altogether more other-worldly, darker and ultimately very rewarding.

The new edition of Max Richter’s 'Recomposed: Vivaldi — The Four Seasons' has been released on two LPs from Deutsche Grammophon. The vinyls also include a download code for the MP3 tracks for your digital devices.

Max Richter’s interpretation of Franz Schubert’s ‘Andante Con Moto In E-Flat Major’. Taken from the soundtrack of 'The Congress'.

Highly musical, the film features a beautiful and harmonious score ranging from epic, sweeping tracks to electronica renditions of classical partitions by Frederic Chopin and Franz Schubert. The album also includes newv ersions of the famous ‘Forever Young’ and ‘If It Be Your Will’ produced by Max Richter and performed by Robin Wright.

Taken from Wil Bolton’s  upcoming album 'Bokeh' which will be out on Home Normal in August, in an edition of 500 CDs in handmade oversized washi card with insert.

The Japanese ボケ味 (‘boke-aji’) relates to a ‘blur quality’, and has in time come to be known as a photographic technique by which ‘out-of-focus’ points of light are processed by certain lenses. You can get ‘good’ or ‘bad’ bokeh which often refers to the level of distraction in the image, with the good of course, enhancing the image somehow in its own mysterious way.

New album by Wil Bolton which will be released by Home Normal on CD, in an edition of 500. 'Bokeh' is one of those lovely records that doesn’t really hit you straight away to be honest. That, though, is the beauty of Wil’s works. From very subtle beginnings you are left to uncover wonderful variances, discovering new elements coming to the fore with each listen.

The wonderful Serein label is crowd-funding a very special vinyl edition of ‘Charcoal’ by Brambles. If they get enough sales, it will get made. It’s no different to crowdfunding using Kickstarter and the like, they’ve just chosen not to use a third-party. If by the 24th of August they don’t have enough orders to make this viable, your payment will be refunded in full. Learn more.
