Review: After their mysterious little deviation last year, the hotly tipped Acteurs return to London's Public Information with another sublime amalgamation of minimalist industrial music in what feels like a cross between an EP and a mini LP, where each track fits in perfectly next to its counterpart. "Pride Of Classes" opens things up with a moody arrangement of harmonics and an even moodier male voice, and "Ewe" continues this desolate conversation amid what sound like the peak of the Blitzkrieg. "Honey Bear" goes down a post-punk path thanks to its repetitive and minimalistic synth lead, whereas "River Card" is another piece of experimental, neo-technoid poetry; "I W I" continues this tradition with an even nuttier collection of sonics at the helm.

Review: Having previously released music from the likes of Bristol's Ekoplekz, British electronic music pioneer F.C. Judd and Brooklyn's ADR, Public Information continue their survey of the outer fringes of avant-garde electronics by shifting their focus to USA's West Coast, presenting the debut record from Austin Cesear. Even in terms of America's rich underground of contemporary producers Cesear seems like an outsider; where his contemporaries are content to rework well worn tropes into bright retro pastiche, Cesear's music is warped and decayed, existing in a dark, parallel version of Chicago and Detroit's musical past. Cruise Forever is an album of two halves, combining dense techno in the vein of Actress or Andy Stott and digital, tape looped ambient that is somewhere between Daniel Lopatin, Fennesz and Steve Reich. Far from being a pretender however, Cesear puts his own bold stamp on these influences, reconstructing them with his own rusty building blocks and delievering an album that is one of best debuts we've heard this year.

Review: When Austin Cesear and Public Information combine, the results are never less than special; back in 2012, it was the London-based label which first served notice of the San Francisco-based artist's talent for bleak yet beautiful sonics with the excellent debut LP Cruise Forever. Since then Cesear has brought his sepia-toned brand of house and ambient music to Anthony Naples' Proibito label, and collaborated on a cassette release with Stefan Jos for Opal Tapes earlier this year. The sight of a new Cesear release on Public Information is most welcome then, with West Side apparently inspired by the artist's time spent amidst the industrial machinery and wildlife of Oakland, California. Spread across six tracks, the results veer through mood and tone, yet feel like one cohesive whole thanks to Cesear's ever refined touch.

Review: An imaginary recording studio that is a cross between King Tubby's on Dromilly Ave, Kingston, and the Radiophonic Workshop's Maida Vale studio in London, Dromilly Vale is the setting for the creation of Bristol producer Ekoplekz's excellent record on Public Information. It's a fascinating concept, and one that's pulled off with considerable finesse; intro "Dick Mills Blues" frames this idea with a cracked fog of soothing tones that could be considered sun-drenched, whilst the rest of the EP experiments extensively with the sonic qualities of the idea, with "Dromilly Vale" firing analogue bullets into an echo chamber and "Neutronix" sounding like a frantic 80s VHS ident caked in spring reverb. Far from being a novelty that wears thin, this is undoubtedly some of the producer's strongest work to date.

Review: A grad student and sound designer at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Katie Gately has been producing music for a little over a year, but has already managed to forge a unique sound that Public Information describe succinctly as a "prime distillation in computer-music-pop". Gately's self-titled debut sees her combine her own heavily treated vocals amidst an occasionally bewildering array of sample-based scrapes, cracks and drones that somehow shape themselves into an avant-garde form of pop music, manifesting itself as "Fractured vocalisations, bittersweet harmonies, freaked alien voices all living, breathing in deep fried motherboards of acute computer programming and field sound." Although her music finds itself closely aligned to Holly Herndon and Julia Holter, fans of the weird grime of Jam City and the more abstracted output of Editions Mego should consider this a must check too.

Review: Having established themselves with a series of excellent albums and compilations the Public Information label expands their remit here with the first in a series of self styled (and embossed) Extended Play Messages. Nominally presented as limited edition 12?s "aimed at those dancefloors with nary a Guetta in sight" the series gets off to a fine start with the Future EP from Portuguese artist IVVVO, who you should know from an excellent Opal Tapes release. The Porto based producer's gauzy approach on that All Shades Of White tape is replicated here across the six tracks with reverb soaked, melancholic chords tossed carefully over throbbing rhythmics whilst a pair of piano vignettes bookend each side. The new focus also sees the label adopt a slightly different presentational approach; unlike the full artwork of their recent releases, these new 12?s sees new die cut, individually numbered sleeves being utilised.

As is typical of all Public Information releases, Fingers Crossed is a dense and beguiling collection of tracks; swathed in tape echo, their decomposed loops have echoes of Basinski's Disintegration Tapes if they had been abandoned inside an irradiated forbidden zone, with the haunting folk of tracks like "Kantele" and "Backslide" sounding particularly heat-damaged. "Knowledge" rattles along like a lost no-wave classic, while "Place To Get Lost In" offers a piece of searing drone somewhere between Sunn 0))) and My Bloody Valentine But the centrepiece is the 10 minute long title track, a chamber pop masterpiece which offers a moment of clear calm in their confusing, lonely world.

Review: Since launching, Public Information have impressed with stylistically varying releases from contemporary artists such as Ekoplekz, Austin Ceaser, No UFOs and Gatekeeper's Aaron David Ross as well reissuing the work of the overlooked British electronic musician FC Judd. Tomorrow's Achievements: Parry Music Library 1976-86 sees the label indulge their archival tendencies with a compilation made up from an exclusive trip to the archives of the Toronto-based music institution. The bewildering 25 track selection covers proto-Balearic house, electronic disco, drone, and weird radiophonic electronica, most of which will be faintly recognizable to those of a certain age. Once again Public Information have excelled themselves with yet another esoteric release that illuminates the strange alternate reality their aesthetic occupies, and is easily the best collection of library sounds since Permanent Vacation's first Space Oddities collection was released in 2008.

Review: The latest release from the excellent Public Information sees them return to the works of early electronic pioneer F.C. Judd with a selection of remixes from some well chosen contemporary artists. Originally the subject of a retrospective release from Public Information early in 2012 entitled Electronics Without Tears, F.C. Judd was an under-appreciated figure of early electronic music who experimented with oscillators, filters and amplifiers, alongside his own self-built electro-mechanical drum machine and experimental synthesiser, primarily during the 1950s and 60s. Interpretations On F.C. Judd is the result of the label haven given all artists involved access to Judd's entire archive of sounds, tone experiments, field recordings and lectures, and left them to "produce an audio artefact befitting of Judd himself". RVNG artist Holly Herndon, techno veteran Perc, Bandshell, Karen Gwyer, Ekoplekz and Throbbing Gristle's Chris Carter all contribute to an engaging collection of works.

Review: Those who have been following Public Information will know that the label is no stranger to the world of library music, having released the excellent Tomorrow's Achievements: Parry Music Library 1976-86 back in 2012. Having recently released more club-friendly 12"s from artists like IVVVO and Bass Clef, the label's latest project returns to library music this time collecting highlights from UK library music institution Standard Music on Happy Machine: Standard Music Library 1970-2010. Described by the label as a journey from "desolate Radiophonic ambient, to cute bleep-idents, to stark contemporary drone to jagged electronic scorch" via "moments of square-Italo groove, freaky electroid-psych and early '70s Beat," it has enough variety to satisfy the most rabid of library music diggers, and even features a contribution from fabled Beatles producer George Martin.
