Experimental electronic artist Tim Hecker will follow up 2011's excellent Ravedeath, 1972 with a brand new LP this fall. Titled Virgins, it's out October 14 via Kranky. (Paper Bag will release the album in Canada.) That's the cover, above, and tracklist below.

According to a press release, the album was recorded live last year in studios in Reykjavik, Montreal and Seattle-- an "almost percussive" and "airy, more defined" LP that "at times points to the theological aspirations of early minimalist music."

In advance of Virgins, Kranky will also reissue Hecker's 2004 album Mirages, which will be out on vinyl for the first time.

After the tracklist, check out a full set from Hecker performed last year in Italy.

09 Amps, Drugs, Harmonium
10 Stigmata I

yay, but fuck those 3 months in advance announcements, when do kranky releases generally leak in relation to official release date ?


"almost percussive," that got me interested. Maybe a more rhythmic Hecker?

hell no (hope so at least), jetone sucked ass. probably meant as pulsating drones or something.

I heard an unreleased track from his live set that was like some bells with distortion repeating a melody... nothing outstanding but quite good.

I've heard about Virgins from people who already heard it, that it will be so timeless that when I will be getting older, it will stay the same age





Yes it do, yes it do.

      Allegiance and Conviction is the Dearborn, Michigan ambient duo’s first album since 2012’s We Will Always Be. Written and recorded across six years, the songs swirl between shoegaze minimalism and stargaze drift, over which Windy [Weber] whispers veiled poetic narratives of transformation, isolation, and escape.

      Limited Edition CD (60 hand-numbered copies)
      GALATIMOSCONI is a collaboration between Roberto Galati and Federico Mosconi.

      Their first record, 'Penombra', was recorded trying to maintain a live approach, genuine and spontaneous.

      With 'Dissolve' they decided to exchange ideas and sounds from their own studios, focusing on the richness of their different musical languages and the consequent possibility of making converge their diverse paths in a shared direction.

      Tracks slowly have evolved, sounds have been added and subtracted, mixing each of both artist's individual styles.

      They combined guitar parts processed with Ableton’s Max for Live and Max/MSP, field recordings, synthesisers and a hint of violin, in order to create huge and immersive sounds, dense and layered motifs, that then dissolve, and slowly turn off.

      'Dissolve' reflects two sonic viewpoints as a whole.
