aReW have released a new album by Richard Knight and Noise Research.
Richard Knight and Noise Research – Unified Theory (RW-033)
Richard Knight is a sonic/computational artist, usually performing with digital equipment and an emphasis on spectral ambiguity. Knight also utilises mixing desks as sound sources: a typically passive audio device subverted to become an expressive instrument. Output is derived from the tenuous area between feedback and feedforward – the hazy and perplexing cusp between order and chaos.
For this recording, both analogue and digital processes were used, combined as to blur the distinction.
Noise Research (aka UK sound manipulatist Ian Simpson) has adopted an uncompromising approach in both playing and performance which has led to his involvement as a performer with ‘The Frakture Big Band’ (Liverpool), Noise Club (Liverpool), Janx: The Gathering (Wirral), ‘Gnod’ (Manchester) Aht-N (Cumbria) & ‘Fonik’ (Warrington). He also actively organises and promotes performances in UK including the Pyramid Experimental Music Festival and Manchester based Electronic Organica Nights (co-organised with Richard).
Like Richard, Ian has also used both analogue & digital mediums to produce the sounds you hear on this project.
This is the first official collaboration between Richard & Ian although they have performed live together over the last couple of years. Further recording will take place this year which is to include additional musicians / artists.
I’m looking for any who wishes to review thisto get in touch (or just go ahead and review !)

Got a need for a new electronica/ambient/hip-hop artist and don't know where to look? Try Galway, Ireland which is where Jimmy Penguin calls home. Jimmy (who also goes as Jimmy the Hideous Penguin) just released a killer full length release on the always reliable Section 27 label. Sometimes reminiscent of classic Mo' Wax artists like DJ Shadow and Attica Blues who have one foot in hip-hop and another foot in electronica The S27 Double Bluff is one of my favorite new releases on the FMA this year. I listed a few of my favorite tracks below but the whole release is solid. Give it a try and enjoy!

Leave it to the awesome LCL netlabel to turn me on to some more great new music. LCL recently started a series of releases entitled Carte Blanche that are releases that are not the fare that the label normally puts out. Moolen (Moritz Beller) is a young artist from Hamburg, Germany who started composing some pretty great post-rock/electronica after the breakup of his ska band.
Moolen cites The Notwist and other post-rock bands as a big influence. I tend to see a bit of early Caribou and Ulrich Schnauss as well. Art of Heartwork is moolen's first release and is a document on what has been going on in his life over the past few years. Very personal and interesting this release is worth a careful listen. Brokentopflow is my favorite track of the moment. Give it a listen and enjoy!
