Corticem – Planetarium CD
Corticem are an experimental rock trio based in Krakow, Poland formed by former members of Sawak. After losing their rehearsal/recording space, the trio quickly took action and recorded sessions to tape using whatever they could hastily pack up around them: a theremin-like feedback loop from a cigarette pack-sized amp held up to the guitar pickup, multi-tracked bowed cymbals, a single mic on a drum kit running through a broken amp, reversed drums, the walls, anything. The resulting work is a modern kosmische classic that sounds as if it were from another planet.

Greg Nieuwsma – In C: Flea Market CD
Flea markets are magical places. Places where you can watch inanimate reincarnation in action. Objects deemed as useless – discarded, on their way to landfills or incinerators – are given an opportunity to start anew. Terry Riley’s “In C” is a magical piece of music. It is a piece of music with no single definitive version – on the contrary, the rich variety of interpretations echo the smorgasbord of wares on display at the flea market. It is our hope that this broken-down, wabi-sabi laden take on “In C” will be seen as a worthwhile addition to the collection of versions of Terry Riley’s wonderful composition; and that someone may come across it and pick it up with the same curiosity with which they would pick up an exotic trinket at a flea market, examine it closely and, thinking they have found a treasure, say to themselves “Yes!”SKU: SBCA090
Elsehow – Patterns CD
Patterns is the debut album from Elsehow (singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Piero Delux). It’s a beautiful collection of original songs that range from art-pop through to synth pop, plus three covers of material by artists who Piero cites as major influences (Talk Talk, Brian Eno and Scott Walker). It’s an album ideal for the summer with lots of shifting, shimmering sounds and Piero’s plaintive vocals, but it’s definitely bittersweet with minor keys and songs of love and loss.SKU: SBCA053
Iyari – Hozro CD
Iyari’s Hozro is a beautiful post-rock album filled with ambient soundscapes mixed with delicate guitar work, creating a work that can shift from being calming and comforting to dark and introspective. Iyari’s album is a reflection on the beauty and magic of the universe, using hozro, a Native American Dineh word meaning “to be in harmony with one’s environment”, to connect this feeling to the music. Iyari is an improvisational guitarist from Barcelona, Spain. This is his second release for Submarine Broadcasting Company.SKU: SBCA060
