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.

Ippu Mitsui – Shift Down CD
Ippu has achieved a minor cult following in the UK, featuring on BBC Radio 6Music and frequently on local radio shows such as BCfm’s In-Tune with Phil Vickery, and Radio Woking’s Comfy Show, as well as web radio such as Radiocoolio. “Shift Down” is Ippu’s first release for the Submarine Broadcasting Company and demonstrates a subtle change of direction, with some more mid-tempo or mellower pieces: “Absolutely loving this mellow side of Ippu; Drifting Into Warm Sunset sounds more and more beautifully lush and dreamy every time you play it.” — Monolith CocktailSKU: SBCE009
Goodparley – Canvas CD
Using a number of lilting, jazz-inflected chord progressions sampled on acoustic guitar by long-term collaborate Il Bradipo as a canvas, this is the most clearly structured Goodparley record to date. Collecting more expressive improvised guitar melodies and juxtaposing them with long-form drone pieces, this record contains wistfulness, nostalgia and moments of wonder. A more colourful palette than previous records, Canvas draws on the separate whimsical styles of F.S. Blumm and the lo-fi community, with sporadic bursts of experimental delay work explored on previous Goodparley releases. The guitar pieces here present a fractured memory space, whilst the ambients slip into the realm of dreams. Sometimes the two intersect and bridge, sometimes they stand apart, together. This is, of course, only one reading of the music within. This record is a canvas, not quite blank, presented to you with space for whatever you bring to it.SKU: SBCA066
Hypercube & UNIC6 – Binary Planet CD
A collage of hard glitch and bleeps from Hypercube (Rodrigo Passannanti) coupled with almost jazz-tinged acoustic wind and string instruments from UNIC6 (Frédéric Iriarte). It’s unapologetically experimental and work that demands your attention.SKU: SBCA035
