disco nouveau : addendum / 12"

The madness never stopped. The legendary Tangent 2002: Disco Nouveau gets a little brother, and the results are even fatter and tougher than the original compilation. Chunky electo stompers from Holland's Legowelt and the elusive Manier, paired with steely electro-pop from the UK's DMX Krew and France's Volga Select -- the perfect antidote for boring dancefloors and bedrooms.

radio ga ga pt.1 / 12"

Part 1 of a 2 part set. Solvent (aka Jason Amm), has been making his inimitable brand of robot-pop since the mid 90's, simultaneously co-running the revered Suction label since 1997. One of the few real classics from the new synth era, Solvent's "My Radio" originally appeared on Ghostly's standard-setting "Disco Nouveau" collection, and is released here with remixes across 2 discs, along with new single "For You" and attendant versions. All mixes extend to full re-interpretations, with each artist encouraged to add elements of their own to the original sound source. Schneider TM added electric guitar and new lyrics, while Interdimensional/Clone mainstays Perspects do their electro cut up thing with glee. Also included is the extended version of "My Radio". Contemporary classic !

subject to shift / 2x12"

So, 6 years down the line from 'Apples & Synthesizers' Solvent presents another beautifully built album of creamy synth-pop and warm robot music for Ghostly International. Lead single "Loss For Words" affirmed that he was back on form and the rest of the LP doesn't disappoint. "Formulate" toys with camp hi-nrg bassline and vocoders and "Don't Forget To Phone" continues a long running comms theme with bendy triplet rhythms and shuddering vocals. "Panoramic" contains the lushest synthlines, which is surely the reason you check this guy anyway, and finally the redux of "Formulate" gives it a queer slow spin reminding of a darker Junior Boys. Lovely stuff.

loss for words / 7"

Hard to believe it's been 6 years since Solvent's 'Apples & Synthesizers', the immaculately composed synth-pop opus whose Toronto-based producer came to define the early Ghostly aesthetic. And yet, here we are, listening to Jason Amm's new single as Solvent, "Loss For Words" (the 1st taste of Solvent's upcoming full-length 'Subject To Shift', and a sterling example of what happens when classic pop songwriting meets analogue circuitry. Buzzing synths, crisply understated drum programming, and an air of gentle melancholyóit's as if no time has passed at all. And yet, "Loss For Words" is also a significant step forward for Amm, as his singing has matured into a clear, organic tenor and sweet orchestral sings dominate the song's climax. This single 7" is a robotic ballad with a human heart. Comes packaged with 2 remixes: Solvent's 'CompuRhythm Rmx', which pares the song's starry haze down to a minimalist series of blips and clicks; and Berlin producer Vector Lovers take, which busies up "Loss For Words" synthetic swirl into a club-ready electro track...

par avion


Artist : Xeno & Oaklander 

Label : Ghostly International 

par avion / LP

Xeno & Oaklander are a minimal electronics girl/boy duo from Brooklyn, NY. They began writing music and soundtracks in 2004. Liz Wendelbo is French / Norwegian and Sean McBride is from Maryland. They record their songs live in their Brooklyn studio and play analogue synthesizers and instruments exclusively. This summer, Xeno & Oaklander bring their minimal electronic sounds to Ghostly International with new album 'Par Avion', their 1st for the label. The album's title is a reference to postcards and was used to mark airmail sent from exotic places. The songs are postcards of love for a cold age ó shimmering moments from the present, romantic messages from the past, and love mementos for the future. Together, they make up an album of contrasts. The songs move from upbeat to downbeat, slow to fast, light to dark. 'Par Avion's rich diversity of sounds comes at least in part from the fact that it's an album-long ode to synesthesia. As singer Liz Wendelbo explains, 'sound makes me think of a scent, which makes me think of an image, which makes me think of a certain kind of light'. The sensory experiences are palpable: "Jasmine" calls to mind the intoxicating scent of jasmine flowers that bloom at night, "Nuage D'Ivoire" sweats under a tropical sky full of clouds that hold the key to the past and the future, "Sheen" glistens with reflections dancing in the water and with inner visions of romance, where light and dark meet in the pupil of the eye. Adding to the sense of exoticism, Wendelbo's whispery vocals are sung in both French and English, calling to mind Jane Birkin and FranÁoise Hardy. Again, there's a contrast between dark and light, tropical warmth of Wendelbo's vocals is juxtaposed against duo's signature icy cold, ultra-modern synth sounds. Those sounds have a new component for 'Par Avion'; synth wizard Sean McBride uses an analogue Serge modular synth to create washes of sound that recall 90's shoegaze. The result is an album that stimulates and fascinates throughout, a rich feast for all the senses, a world to get lost in again and again. Includes 11x11 paper art insert with lyrics and credits. Download card included ;)
