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.

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

Draaier – The Town That Was Murdered CD
The Town That Was Murdered is Draaier’s love/hate letter to their home town of Jarrow, an a homage to the book written by Red Ellen Wilkinson. Forgotten at best, actively dismantled at worst, Jarrow is a signifier of the treatment of Northern industrial towns. Pitch black in places but not without glimmers of hope, there is a violence and frustration that runs underneath the surface, a resentment at being ostracised.SKU: SBCA075
