Falling (feat Emme) - (5:13)
from $1.49
Played by: Luke Slater, Lakker, Woo York
Review: Whether or not Berlin-based Italian Luca Montellaro's sophomore album, Churches Schools & Guns is a concept album (we have no idea, to be honest), there's a definite connection between the evocative, uneasy title and the clastrophobic, paranoid music contained within. "The Horror", a decidedly unsettling foray into nightmarish ambience, sets the tone. The maudlin but strangely involving music which follows shuffles between ethereal, post-dubstep tech-scapes ("The Self as Another", "Human Triage"), druggy hypnotism ("Follow the Leader"), sludgy downtempo oddness ("Catch 22") and tumbling, monastic ambience ("Falling"). Throughout, there's an uneasy sense of a bleak, other-wordly story unfolding.

Testpressing#001 by Demdike Stare on Modern Love Cue Track
Misappropriation - (7:56) Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Initially released on highly limited replica test pressing vinyl, Demdike Stare's excellent Testpressing series arrives at Juno Download and offers a chance for digital enthusiasts to bask in some truly excellent music. The Testpressing series is described by Modern Love as an outlet for Demdike Stare's most "untamed" creations, and both tracks on this debut release set the tone accordingly. There have been plenty of words spilled about the electronic music and noise music spheres drawing ever closer lately, but the appropriately titled "Collision" seems to capture these two forces in perfect unison as vintage jungle breaks are mangled cacophonously with Pansonic-esque harsh white noise. "Misappropriation" meanwhile sounds reminiscent of the eeriest, skin crawling moments from their Tryptych trilogy of imaginary horror soundtracks.

Review: Having carved out a strong sonic identity for themselves in the new wave of current noise-driven artists, Emptyset make a bold step in the right direction with an EP for Raster Noton, arguably the pinnacle destination for the grit-flecked, ear canal-scraping approach to anti bass music. "Armature" starts things off in relatively manageable territory with a stalking composition driven by a discernible kick, but "Core" is instantly a more visceral excursion into white noise blasts at messy rhythmic intervals. "Collapse" works towards a crescendo that almost reaches for melody, while "Wire" gleefully robs techno of its danceable function and sears its features to within an inch of its 4/4 life.

Review: Editions Mego drop another ton of electro-acoustic funk on us, this time by veteran German duo, Atom TM and March Behrens. Compiled from recordings made between the '80s and up to the present day, it's basically an anthology of electronic music, seeing its twists, turns and transformations over the last three decades. Compelling, efficient and downright mind-bending in every way.

Review: Alxe Wilner, the artist most commonly known as The Field, unveils a new project and a new sonic direction with The Soul Is Quick LP for the Ecstatic label established by Walls pair Sam Willis and Alessio Natalizia. The HANDS project promises to be something of a departure from the signature washes of ethereal sound that have informed Wilner's much loved work as The Field, this album is split into four tracks of "plaintive devastation" - as the artist himself describes it! Seemingly drawing its inspiration from the 19th Century Berlin Beelitz-Heilstatten sanatorium complex that existed as a rehabilitation centre for tuberculosis patients, you can imagine that the tone is dour. Recorded over the course of one month at Wilner's Garmonbozia Studios in Berlin early last year, the four long form drone pieces were composed using a Roland JX-3P, a Roland SH-101, a Tenori-On, and an Elektron Machinedrum.

Review: Strut and Trevor Jackson do the right thing and collude on a second edition of Metal Dance, with a veritable feast of '80s industrial and primitive electronics to sink into. Some 27 tracks deep, Metal Dance 2 widens the remit of the first compilation by a year, collating material from the period 1979 to 1988 and features artists and bands that should be familiar to your eyes in Skinny Puppy, Chris & Cosey, Crash Course In Science and Liaisons Dangereuses along with many lesser known acts. Jackson himself contributes an edit of iconic Blitz DJ Rusty Egan whilst Morphine Records boss Rabih Beaini highlights Lebanon's history with primitive electronics on an edit of Rene Bandaly Family's eighties curio "Tanki Tanki". Impressively, the compilation also features a track by CHBB, a band whose members went on to form DAF and Liaisons Dangereuses and whose small discography was limited to four rare cassettes.

Review: Bringing a truly garbled approach to Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound stable, BTU is Brazilian artist Babe, Terror and the mysterious Man Make Music contributor U working together on a mission to disorientate you through their fearsome application of sample science. "Government/Swordbeerfish/Ugly Sneakers" comes on like Musique Concrete pasted to the wall of a pulsing warehouse, as splintered fragments of detuned vocal, jazz wig outs and countless other minute details flurry around that muffled kick. "Breathe Awesome/Blueen" is a slightly less manic affair, allowing a bit more space for reversed guitars and other off-kilter noises to drift around in a more considered kind of madness. It's a bold record but still accessible in its own, broken way.

Review: Radiation is not a typical Third Ear release, but Why Sheep aka Japanese producer Gaku Uchida has a long-standing relationship with the imprint, having released an album on Guy McCreery's label back in 2003. Both versions of "Radiation" favour experimental textures and extreme sonic diversions. Bluesy guitar shards are combined with bursts of noise and creaky effects on the first take, while the second version is just as warped. There, waves of spiky percussion and crashing drums provide the basis for jazzy licks and vocal chants. The remixes from Kare San Sui are less intense, with the first "Radiation" reduced to an atonal sound scapes and "A2" turned into a jazzy broken beat workout.

Review: Blackest Ever Black crank the releases gears back into action for 2014 with the first release of what promises to be another perennially intriguing calender year. Typically, their focus falls on a musician who might not be that familiar to the wider audience but has a discography that commands respect. Check the Blackest Ever Black website and you'll find a press release that paints Stefan Jaworzyn as "a notorious and energetic presence in the UK underground of the 1980s and '90s" who enjoyed stints in acts such as Whitehouse, Ascension and Skullflower, as well as overseeing the Shock Records label. Having withdrawn from music in 1996, Jaworzyn remained off the grid until earlier this year when the Shock Records label was reactivated and he set to work on sifting through his personal archives of recordings for the KINO reissue/compilation series. It was during this process that Jaworzyn chanced upon a set of "driving, faintly sociopathic and supremely zoned pieces" made at his Cardiff studio in 1982 using a Korg MS10 or 20 and a Dr Rhythm drum machine. Seven of these compositions now feature on Drained Of Connotation, which is perhaps the most BEB-appropriate title in some time!

Review: Although he has released a staggering amount of material over the past few years on the likes of Editions Mego and Mordant Music, Ekoplekz's Intrusive Incidentalz Vol 1, released through Peverelist's Punch Drunk imprint remains our favourite of his radiophonic excursions, which makes us particularly excited that he's returned for a second volume. Like the best library music compilations that party inspire his analogue oddities, Intrusive Incidentalz Vol 2 is perhaps how Ekoplekz is best enjoyed, keeping its tracks short and sweet, and evoking 60s sci-fi and misty black and white nostalgia alongside its moments of slow burning dread.

Review: Doubting Thomas represents the side project of cEvin Key and the late Dwayne Goettel from '80s industrial goth group Skinny Puppy. Originally released in 1991 on the Wax Trax! Records, a label responsible for releasing early Ministry and Revolting Cocks material, the album receives a digital re-release via Metropolis, a Philadelphian label specialising in post-industrialist genres. The digital version of the album comes with all 26 tracks of the double CD version, which would make the perfect soundtrack to any '90s thriller, action or horror film.

from $1.49
Review: With just a handful of percussive noise cassettes under their belt for Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement have succeeded in finding their own momentum amongst the myriad of glitchy, hissing drone E's governing the best part of the label. "The Plant With Many Faces" is already their third Hospital release in a year and it marks a clear continuation of the imprint's dark but conceptual aesthetic. If it weren't for its comparatively reassuring strand of percussion towering above the swell of growls, "Abaxial Masks With Sockets Closed To Hide The Face When The Destroyer Comes Alive" would be the definition of total doom, but its poignant structure gives the track a point of reference and instead of staring into an abyss of noise, we're guided rather gently by its ominous but irresistibly enticing bassline. "Out Of The Mess Came The Green Devil", on the other hand, loops a blockade of deranged field recordings into a quasi-groove, and the same can be said for "Complex Rituals To Control Anthurium", a similarly marvellous escapade into the evolution of organic sounds. Finally, "Poisonous Spirit Species" morphs from calm to volatile, where sparse trickles of crackle and bang manoeuvre without care through the long and cavernous tunnel of white noise. Another biggie from one of the most interesting labels around.

Review: Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions has been running for donkey's years, continuously shaping the fine lines between abstract experimentation, sound installations and electronica. This is Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement's sixth instalment for the label and as usual, comes courtesy of a generous digital re-release from its original and near impossible to find, cassette format. A haunting wall of noise opens "Spot A Witch By Changes In The Persons Behaviour", a rich concoction of white noise which eventually transforms into a more stable, drone-fuelled dissection. The chillingly named "In New Guinea Police Don't Have The Petrol Money To Search For The Witch Murderers" is a fine example of their objective: to capture situations and reduce them to a musical context - crackling, almost human field recordings guiding the whole 5 minutes. Same goes for "Bodies Of Suspected Witches Are Dumped In The River Or Buried In Toilet Pits", a bizarre alignment between haunted recordings and tape manipulations; and its only on "Sorcery Killings" that the artist gives us anything near a concrete musical arrangement. Otherworldly recordings from the label!

Played by: Abel Mortis
Review: It's a good thing that Hospital Productions are unearthing most of Vatican Shadow's cassette takes on digital format, a lost collection of sublime electronic madness which would otherwise only be available for 75 lucky punters. "There Was A Black Banner On The Floor", a submerged kick drum leading the way for a medley of sharp percussion sounds and chilling tones, is some of Vatican's best work to date; while the provocatively named "Al Qaeda Possess Nuclear Capacity" sees our man in a more pensive mood, where cascading tribal drums are swayed by a mesmerising bundle of climatic synths and radiances. "Wahhabi Money Flows" is another brilliant downtempo piece, all complete with his usual blend of inter-wining snares and bass lines; but it's the ominous bass frequencies and haunting pads of "Once This Fire Gathers Strength" that truly separate Vatican Shadow's work from the rest of his peers. Highly recommended as usual...

Review: The heavily sought after "Ghosts Of Chechnya" cassette finally sees a digital release. Vatican Shadow is unstoppable at the moment, his alchemistic beats and military themes marking him out as a singular talent. This latest affair, a sort of LP, is nothing short of stunning and it's tracks like "The House Of The Followers" with its dubbed-out, reverberant noises, that make Vatican Shadow stand out among his peers. The aptly named "Voices Came Crackling Across A Motorola Hand-Held Radio" is another beast, where chugging kick drums meet ominous pads and crackling static. "Chechnya's Ghosts Loom Large In Death Of Former Spy" is another fine example of his creative ability to mould techno into any shape he sees fit; but it's the filling spaces made up of eerie melodies and stripped beats, like "Snipers As A Breed Tend To Be Superstitious" which make his recordings so enchanting. Highly recommended as usual.

Jordanian Descent (Guantanamo Military Commissions) - (15:12)
from $2.50
Review: Vatican Shadow has emerged as one of the most interesting and elusive acts within modern techno. Dominick Fernow's music is consistently tricky to pin down and he's been restructuring the connection between dark, industrial rock and techno - something which has gained massive support from veteran Birmingham boy, Regis. Jordanian Descent is another spine-chilling journey into chambered, military beats and dismembered melodies. The "Sharia Law" mix is a slow-moving, monster of a track. Menacing snares and hi-hats are transformed into slithering pieces of percussion which whirl along to a chugging, progressive beat. "Guantanamo Military Commissions" is faster in tempo but nonetheless effective; a pounding, granulous kick drum makes way for a shifting collage of apocalyptic sounds and atmospherics. Another huge record from this mysterious producer - an absolute TIP.

Review: This new LP by Kevin Drumm couldn't have come sooner enough and to be honest, it's exactly the sort of thing that's pushing us through these chilling winter days over here at Juno HQ. It comes courtesy of Hospital Productions, an imprint which needs no introduction and one which has truly broadened the horizons of electronic music over the past year. "Night Side" sets the scene for what evolves into a brooding whirlpool of sonic elements, slowly unfolding into the dreary pads of "Winter Ice" or the relatively more hopeful drones of "Taurean". It's a real concept piece, with each take being at least ten minutes long and oozing with timbral morphs, such as "Gradual Extinction" and "Return", a startling composition of silent pads and pure guitar feedback. "Grace" seems to be its natural development as those fearless drones grow further into the ether but it's the final "Dimming The Gas Lights" that breaks everything down and unleashes all of Drumm's sonic wrath in the shape of uncontrollable howling noises. Recommended? No, needed!

Annihilation Of The Vagina (The Night) - (12:38)
from $1.49
Review: This time Dominick Fernow takes the form of his Prurient guise, a project restricted to Fernow's considerably noisier frame of mind but one that still manages to evoke boundless emotion. As you would imagine from the title, "You Weren't Worth The Paper You Were Printed On (The Sun)" is ripe with anger and brimming with energy - a ten minute grind of furious drones and rising vocals form the depths of those booming noises. "They Found You Shattered On The Concrete (The Moon)" is no less menacing but Fernow moulds and rearranges the shapes of the oscillator waves to the point of total abstraction and rage, whereas "Two Golden Stick Webs (The Day)" takes a more hollow approach, fusing mounds of delays and effects with crumbling voices and metallic screeches. Last but not least, "Annihilation Of The Vagina (The Night)" upsets and disrupts with no hesitation thanks to its subdued screams dropping effortlessly into heavy, noisy drones built for the brave-hearted - it's noise at its purest form: honest, brutal and provocative.
