181 - IROHA - SHEPHERDS & ANGELS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Birmingham based Shoegaze, Metal outfit Iroha are back with the follow up to their highly acclaimed 2011 self-titled debut album. Coming in December via Denovali Records, 'Shepherds & Angels' is another heavy slab of densely melancholic and yet extremely uplifting songwriting combining elements of shoe-gaze, metal and electronica. From the opening, monolithic riff of 'The Greatest Healer' through to the swirling atmospherics of 'Denial' (a unique collaboration with Hydra-Head's Pyramids), 'Shepherds & Angels' is equally as heavy as lead and as fragile as glass. Andy Swan (FINAL), Diarmuid Dalton (GODFLESH etc.) and Dominic Crane (THE BOATY MAN, RUMBLE FISH) are having a great feeling for melodies and know how to combine them with powerful sound elements to create a fuzzy warm mood. Time to immerse. Nice digipak packaging.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Greatest Healer 6:24 02. You Reap What You Sow 6:36 03. Legacy 5:33 04. Home Is Where The Heart Is 5:20 05. Shepherds & Angels 9:05 06. Blind Faith 8:00 07. Denial 7:42

183 - IROHA - THE END OF AN ERA (10") - (EP) 
DENOVALI


After a collaboration record with FRAGMENT. from France and the S/T debut full length, THE END OF AN ERA constitutes the third release of IROHA - the new project consisting of Andy Swan (FINAL), Diarmuid Dalton (GODFLESH, JESU) and Dominic Crane (THE BOATY MAN, RUMBLE FISH). The 4 tracks (with a total playing time of 25 minutes) express their love to shoegaze just as much as their interest in the sound of new wave acts like NEW ORDER - all this mixed with a metal orientated sound basis and little ambient influences. Iroha have a great feeling for melodies and know how to combine them with powerful sound elements to create a fuzzy warm mood in every new track.

187 - KAPSA, KUBA - SUPERSONIC MOTH - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Kuba Kapsa is a Polish pianist and composer - also known as the leader of the avant-jazz combo Contemporary Noise Sextet. Beyond that he's a renowned composer for film and theater plays. After presenting his composition works for ensembles in 2015 and 2016 he now returns to Denovali Records with his new piano solo album ""Supersonic Moth"".The album is basically written for upright piano played through felt, programmed electronic sounds and processed piano recordings in order to create in-depth atmospheres and sonic landscapes with a wide range of stimulating moods. Based on piano ideas enriched with his improvisation skills, ""Supersonic Moth"" is mainly calm, dark and cinematic. Kuba Kapsa again managed the sophisticated feat to combine modern classic with subtle drones and floating soundscapes, accentuating his emotive piano play with a deliberate use of electronic elements. Some titles refer to the final poem at the end of the album about a moth which ends up dead, flying towards the light.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Always A Playground Instructor Never A Killer 02. Exciting The Last Flight 03. Rain Station 04. Swarm 05. Unspoken Is Better 06. Unfortunate The Night 07. Hope It Snows A Lot In Heaven Peter! 08. Reliever 09. Supersonic Moth

189 - KAPSA, KUBA -ENSEMBLE- - VANTDRAUGHT 10, VOL. 1 - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Kuba Kapsa is a Polish pianist and composer being the leader of the avant-jazz combo Contemporary Noise Sextet (2006-2014). Beyond that he is a renowned composer for film and theater plays. His latest venture is the first of a sophisticated series of projects of modern classical music bearing the common title ""Vantdraught". The first part of the "Vantdraught" series is called "Vantdraught 10" written for ten classical instruments - 4 violins, 2 violas, cello, vibraphone, marimba and piano. The music is largely based on a repetition of individual melodic motifs, which are also quite multithreaded within a given composition. Vibraphone, piano and marimba are written in a "push-pull" combination, being the rhythmical base for every piece, while strings are instantly "questioning and answering" each other whether being supportive to the rhythm or used for the presentation of themes. The common feature of every composition is symmetry, which has been applied to almost every aspect - rhythm, harmony, motifs and themes. The first four pieces of "Vantdraught 10", which are inspired by the works of classical minimalists, early 20th century composers and 20th century Polish composers such as Steve Reich, Igor Stravinsky, Edgar Varese, Henryk Mikolaj Grecki or Wojciech Kilar, have been recorded in December 2014 with musicians from renowned Polish ensembles such as Neoquartet and Kwartludium at the concert studios of Radio Gdansk."Vantdraught 10·Vol.1" features an astonishing artwork based on "Brotmorgendmmerung" (breaddawn) by the seminal artist duo Kahn & Selesnick.

191 - KAPSA, KUBA -ENSEMBLE- - VANTDRAUGHT 4 - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Kuba Kapsa is a Polish pianist and composer being the leader of the avant-jazz combo Contemporary Noise Sextet (2006-2014). Beyond that he is a renowned composer for film and theater plays. His latest venture is the first of a sophisticated series of projects of modern classical music bearing the common title "Vantdraught".The first part of the "Vantdraught" series was called "Vantdraught 10 · Vol. 1" and featured ten classical instruments - 4 violins, 2 violas, cello, vibraphone, marimba and piano. The now appearing second part is "Vantdraught 4", a quartet album written for violin, clarinet/bass clarinet, trombone and piano. The minimalistic style of Vantdraught 10 is preserved although the music is less repetitive and much more intimate. Instinct and intuition is the main force behind the writing process, usually avoiding typical chord progressions and the classical cadential technique. In contrast to "Vantdraught 10 · Vol. 1", the rhythm domain is also less important, thus allowing the melody and harmony to come to the fore. The pieces of "Vantdraught 4" are mainly tonal music but Kapsa also makes use of atonal and polytonal harmonies which requires the listener to put more effort into listening to these parts. The unusual set of instruments is what makes this quartet album unique and fresh sounding. "Vantdraught 4" is certainly linked to classical and minimal music in general but one can find other influences such as jazz and "new music".Much like its predecessor, "Vantdraught 4" features an astonishing artwork based on "The Reluctant Conscript" by the seminal artist duo Kahn & Selesnick.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Vantdraught 4: No. 1 7:24 02. Vantdraught 4: No. 2 6:15 03. Vantdraught 4: No. 3 5:19 04. Vantdraught 4: No. 4 4:06 05. Vantdraught 4: No. 5 6:46 06. Vantdraught 4: No. 6 4:32

More jazzy, technically brilliant, passionate music from four guys who just want to play music and don't care about genre specifications. there are no well known bands you can compare them with.... but if you're into dynamic, highly technical math rock, post hardcore, postpunk whatever with "twinkly" guitars and a passionate own sound you definitely should check them out. their last record jokes already was one of the most refreshing records of the past years in this "post whatever genre" - snacks is another ingenious step forward. Mastered by Carl Saff (Young Widows, Om, Early Day Miners, Tiny Vipers, Auxes etc.) CD Version comes in sweet handprinted cardboard covers. TRACKLISTING: 01. SPACE BETWEEN MOUNTAINS 02.

194 - KILIMANJARO DARKJAZZ ENSEMBLE, THE - MUTATIONS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


2016 Reissue of "Mutations" - the second work of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble from 2009. Not existing anymore since 2012 The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble now finally makes all long-time sold out releases available again on all formats (cd | vinyl | digital). The series of reissues starts with their genre-determining second output "Mutations". An act combining profound musical sensibilities, deeply emotional harmonies and an acute ear for genre inter-breeding, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble placed itself and the confluent of dusty, gritty jazz and low-end doom-laden drones, and came up with a sound which is at the same time warm and dark, brooding and misty, cinematic and dynamic.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Caos Calmo 02. Muenchen 03. Serpents 04. Twisted Horizons 05. Shadows 06. Symmetry Of 6's 07. Horns Of King David 08. Avian Lung

195 - KIRMANN, FRANZ - ELYSIAN PARK - (CD) 
DENOVALI


The album was born from Hyper Trophies, a 2012 installation project by Berlin art studio Zeitguised that Kirmann was commissioned to soundtrack. Both the visual and sonic aesthetic of that project were instrumental in defining the artistic and sonic approach to Elysian Park. Hyper Trophies was a crossover art/fashion project and consisted of three endless video loops presented in a vertical format and showing unemotional and deadpan female models floating amongst nocturnal backdrops, evoking ghostly figures in some apocalyptical wastelands. That static verticality and the feeling of loneliness are very present in the 14 compositions that form Elysian Park. The music fades in and out, creeps up on you and disappears; The tracks bear no traditional structures, seem to lead nowhere and have no obvious melodies, riffs or no beats to hang on to. There is a deep sense of space and emptiness surrounding the music forcing the listeners attention to focus on the physicality of the sound rather than any melodic, harmonic or rhythmical content. Kirmann refers to this record as "environmental", and is clearly interested in setting a space for the listener to wander around and it is as if the music was approached in a sculptural way, the pieces born through carving into the sounds rather than the sounds being organised over a linear timeline.Another key influence on the development of "Elysian Park" was the reading of Michel Houellebecqs 2005 novel The Possibility Of An Island. In Franz Kirmanns mind, Zeitguised digital sculptures offered an interesting graphic extension of the novels themes in which human clones living in a post apocalyptical future study the lives of their originator from the early 21st century and attempt to understand human emotions and connect with each other. The Hyper Trophies video loops feel very organic and their textures strangely real, as if made of rubber or fabric, and the lines between whats real or digitally made are blurred. The sonic materials on Elysian Park proceeds from a similar approach: whether created from YouTube recuperated advertising, mangled pop samples, speech synthesis programs or digitally recreated ethnic instruments, they all converge to create a virtual world made of "sonic junk" that may feel abstract or alienating but also vaguely familiar.But for all its bleak harshness, there are many moments of tranquil clarity on Elysian Park and a sense of a search for a better, more peaceful place. The brooding and bleak numbers are offset against pieces of sepulchral beauty (Tears In Your Eyes, Halcyon, Darknet) or sedated peacefulness (Mirage / Diazepam Dreams / Paradiso Beach). Through its everyday sounds vaporised into oblivion, and its majestic sense of emptiness, Elysian Park eschews a fragmented black geography of an emotionally alienated consumerist society.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Lament 3:02 02. Hidden Olympia / Diamorphine Clickstreams 5:10 03. Hypertrance 6:06 04. Scavenger 2:20 05. Wasteland Condo 3:06 06. Lagon 7:30 07. Diazepam Dreams 1:34 08. Killswitch / Darknet 6:25 09. The Pleasure Channel 3:51 10. Mirage 2:48 11. Lanzarote 1:15 12. Paradiso Beach 3:01 13. Tears In Your Eyes 6:48 14. Halcyon 6:15

197 - KIRMANN, FRANZ - MERIDIANS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Best known as half of post-classical / electronica duo Piano Interrupted, London based French producer Franz Kirmann goes back to his electronic roots with "Meridians", his second album. Strongly influenced by movies (he used to be a film editor and filmmakers Wong Kar Wai, Michelangelo Antonioni, Sergio Leone or David Lynch are happily cited alongside his musical influences), Franz Kirmann has a weakness for walls of sounds and fragile melodies, which to him are the sonic equivalent of slow-motion sequences, travelling shots or landscapes in cinemascope.

198 - KIRMANN, FRANZ - MERIDIANS - (LP) 
DENOVALI


Best known as half of post-classical / electronica duo Piano Interrupted, London based French producer Franz Kirmann goes back to his electronic roots with "Meridians", his second album. Strongly influenced by movies (he used to be a film editor and filmmakers Wong Kar Wai, Michelangelo Antonioni, Sergio Leone or David Lynch are happily cited alongside his musical influences), Franz Kirmann has a weakness for walls of sounds and fragile melodies, which to him are the sonic equivalent of slow-motion sequences, travelling shots or landscapes in cinemascope. For fans of Cliff Martinez, Clint Mansell, Max Richter

199 - KODIAK - KODIAK - (CD) 
DENOVALI


KODIAK are exploring limits. Even if their sound ranges from monolithic ultraheavy compositions to drone orientated experimental soundscapes, punctated used melodic riffing and guest appearances with strings or piano - thats the common term to decribe their way of working. Before they start to write a three album concept series in 2012, theyre now offering a new collaboration LP with drone ambient legend N and a collection 2xcd of their work from their first 4 years as a band. This collection 2xcd contains all their output from the s/t debut full length LP, the split songs with NADJA and BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS, and the new collaboration LP with N to a previously in that length unreleased track named "By the sea". In total, a more than 2 hours long intensive and agitating trip. Beyond SUNN O))), SWITCHBLADE, and KODIAK there are not that many artists around who can initiate such an expressive mood. 2xCd: thick triple gatefold digipak

200 - KODIAK/N - SPLIT - (LP) 
DENOVALI


After a yearlong phase of writing new material and playing selected concerts KODIAK are now back with a new 2 song record. Before they start to write a three album concept series in 2012 they decided to realize another collaboration: after the liasons with NADJA and BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS it is the drone ambient legend N who joined them to record an impressive wall of sound this time. KODIAKs feeling for ultraheavy monolithic compositions and Ns eclectic intuition concerning complex soundscapes add up to a perfect musical symbiosis. The 2 pieces "Radon" and "Xenon" are combining the heavy approach of SUNN O))) with the soundscapes people like N, TROUM or THOMAS KoenER have been experimenting with for 2 decades. 180g + thick gatefold sleeves + thick printed inner sleeves

202 - KOENER, THOMAS - TIENTO DE LA LUZ - (CD) 
DENOVALI


A tiento is a form of keyboard music that originated in Spain in the mid-15th century. Thomas Koener's first encounter with this musical genre was initiated by an invitation from the Frankfurter Gesellschaft fuer Neue Musik (Frankfurt Society for New Music) to do a live performance. For this performance Koener chose to do an interpretation of Antonio Cabezons "Tiento del primer tono" (1570), that he rearranged and played with gongs, keyboard and live-electronics in 2012. "Tiento de la Luz" is Koener's second tiento, succeeds "Tiento de las Nieves" (2014) and precedes the upcoming "Tiento de la Oscuridad". While "Tiento de las Nieves" is a work for solo piano and live-electronics, the instrumentation of "Tiento de la Luz" is more diverse: in addition to Koener's distinct live-electronics, there are two parts for keyboard, percussions, and viola da gamba.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Tiento De La Luz 1 8:15 02. Tiento De La Luz 2 6:57 03. Tiento De La Luz 3 9:46 04. Tiento De La Luz 4 7:31 05. Tiento De La Luz 5 11:15 06. Tiento De La Luz 6 5:26

204 - KOENER, THOMAS - TIENTO DE LAS NIEVES - (LP) 
DENOVALI


Thomas Koener, explorer, multimedia artist, dark ambient pioneer. Over his long, much celebrated career, he has worked between audiovisual installation works, sound art, minimal soundscapes, and as one half of Porter Ricks. Among others, he has composed film soundtracks and music to accompany historic silent films for the Louvre Museum and the Muse d'Orsay, Paris, who called him a major innovator in the contemporary music scene.Tiento is a form of keyboard-based music originating in Spain. In his past discography, Thomas Koener has mostly used the piano in a barely recognisable way, as one element of many. However, after a particular radical experience he found himself caught with the piano in his focus, with this rigid instrument which has been developed and solidified in the 17th century just to enslave composers and musicians for centuries to come. To escape and handle the rigidity of the piano, Koener uses his distinctive ansatz to understand music rather as something filling the space of the temporal dimension than as a succession of multi-layered sounds. For him the musical score of any of his pieces is a priori meaningless, and receives meaning only by placing the notes and sounds at particular points in time in a way which is forced upon them by their inner logic. Like atoms in a particular molecule, these notes ought to have a specific distance and order dictated by certain laws, they might have to occur repeatedly, in order for the musical piece to be physically stable and complete, and thus to be able to exist continuously.For this reason, Koener's first tiento to be released, "Tiento de las Nieves" ("snow-tiento"), turned out to be a 68-minute long single piece. Upon producing this tiento, Thomas Koener had a strong and clear sensation of a large white space. Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen has always been an important figure for Koener. In a quote from his expedition account 'Farthest North', Nansen constructs a synthesis between love and snow. With this piece Koener builds a bridge between his associated sensation of a large white space and the snowy, foggy landscapes known to him from his various own expeditions, in a quasi dialectic process.

208 - LEMKE, JOHN - NOMAD FREQUENCIES - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Intent on refining his sound toward a more minimal, bolder style, John set out to limit his sonic palate to a handful of carefully chosen elements. At the centre of this new direction remains the muted piano already introduced on his debut, but in a much more purified and raw form. This organic base is adorned by the warm fuzzing and wavering of analogue synthesisers, tape echoes, meditative tuning forks, field recordings from John's 'exile' period and percussion based on his rigid approach to sampling, which started developing on 'Walizka'. The guiding principle of his orthodox style of recording and sampling is to only use home-made sounds by utilising his own field recordings, applying contact microphones or hydrophones to objects and instruments, running them through different kinds of speakers and re-recording the sounds to arrive at a 'lived in' quality, often misunderstood as plainly 'lo-fi'. Touches of viola and woodwinds parts (Kim Moore of WOLF and Andrew Baker respectively) provide melody fragments and subtle details throughout the journey.With John's healthy disregard for genre boundaries, the array of influences on 'Nomad Frequencies' is vast, but never over-powering. From the meditative tuning fork that starts proceedings on 'Of Elsewhere', the dub echoes to the hints of minimalism, free jazz explosions to the Lynchian atmospherics, all elements serve nothing more than the album's narrative journey between friction and harmony, best appreciated in its entirety. A rhythmic backbone collides with rich ambience and melody, often infectious and jarring at the same time, forging a soulful whole which most likely only reveals its true self after multiple spins.For fans of Boards Of Canada, Pole, Hauschka, Four Tet, The Notwist

210 - LEMKE, JOHN - PEOPLE DO - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Inside the creaking hollows of an attic treasure begins the uncompromising journey of People Do. Eager to devise a more dance oriented sound on his first full length release with Denovali, and contrasting his more ambient, often orchestral film work, John first found inspiration in the idiosyncratic sound world of his grandmother's piano. With a shimmering past in the silent film era of 1920's Berlin, its very fabric was full of anecdotes. But sampling every string and surface, preparing it with kitchen utensils, let alone playing the instrument itself was only the starting point of the intricately woven narrative of People Do.John's dedication to ignoring genre boundaries makes for an album impossible yet needless to categorise, echoing its wide ranging influences, but ultimately existing entirely on its own terms. For fans of FOUR TET, BOARDS OF CANADA, HAUSCHKA, POLE, APHEX TWIN or LALI PUNA.
