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.

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
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
Menhir – Sound Track CD
Sound Track, part of Menhir’s Desert Series is inspired by the Sahara desert and the saharaui refugee camps. It is the soundtrack of the documentary “My first life”, by the Mexican filmmaker Carlos Hernández. The film describes the birth and first days of a child in the camps. The music is composed with analog synths, voices, and electric guitars, mixed with medieval cellos and sandstorms, in 6 music pieces of ritual ambient. Recorded live in the studio, it’s music conceived to overflow the inside-out. A song that is a message, dream wrapped. The changeless time, pulling us as sandstorms. The possible sun and light.SKU: SBCA034
The German Ocean – The German Ocean CD
“Once upon a time, we looked outward”…. The German Ocean formed in late 2020, a partnership between Darren j Holloway of SINNEN and Gavin Martin. It very quickly became apparent that the sounds and shapes coming out of this pairing were a significant departure from those of the SINNEN collective, harking back to Darren’s days as producer of filmic ambient mini-scores but with a fresh, harsher, darker edge. There was something timeless in the mix, something oceanic in the sound, moments and phases reminding the listener of a Great War era submarine chugging ghost-like just below periscope depth. The eight songs on this eponymous debut formed, floated, swam and dived through the cold waters of The North Lands, perhaps hinting at a reminder that things were not always so introspective as they seem now, and that maybe our better futures lie somewhere beyond renamed borders and sea masses. Welcome (back) to The German Ocean.SKU: SBCA078
Stringmodulator – Manifesto CD
Stringmodulator is the brain-child of German musicians Jan Quednau (bass) and Fabian Chmielewski (guitar). Their shared love of electronica, krautrock and jazz is the basis for their experimental music on 10 strings. All sounds are made by guitar and bass. The title of their new album “Manifesto: Noises made by Guitar and Bass” says it all: all sounds are made by these two instruments (and effect pedals). The music was composed spontaneously and recorded on a two-track machine without subsequent overdubs. By this means Jan and Fabian could capture the inspiration and the energy of the here and now.SKU: SBCA008
