Pye Corner Audio Where Things Are Hollow 2 Martin Jenkins, more commonly known as the artist Pye Corner Audio, epitomizes Lapsus' commitment to cutting edge sound experimentation. In 2017, he beguiled the electronic music community by releasing the 'Where Things Are Hollow' EP, on Lapsus Records. The Barcelona label is delighted to announce the release of ‘Where Things Are Hollow 2’, consisting of three brand new original cuts and a remix from none other than John Talabot. 'Where Things Are Hollow 2' explores a spectral and hypnagogic terrain, establishing an electronic sound that at times invokes Jenkins’ more dance friendly facet -'Self Synchronize', 'Weather The Storm'– while also offering his familiar iridescent dreamlike ambient textures –'Phase B'– that featured prominently on his first EP. This second EP also includes a remix from John Talabot, unquestionably one of Spain’s most internationally recognised names over the last decade, who exquisitely reimagines 'Resist' -a song from the first EP-, transforming it into a cross between EBM and hypnotic techno. From a graphic design perspective, renowned artists Alex Trochut and Basora have once again collaborated on this project, repeating the formula that made the artwork for "Where Things Are Hollow" such a collector's item. The pre-order for "Where Things Are Hollow 2" is now available Lapsus 12"
Pye Corner Audio The Spiral Pye Corner Audio return to Death Waltz Originals with a stunning 10 inch featuring 6 brand new and exclusive tracks featuring his trademark sci-fi electronica. 'Do You Hear Them' pulses with a dance floor verve you've not yet heard from PCA bouncing along a killer 4/4 beat with a super melodic bass riff on top, 'The Spiral' begins with a riff on the classic Axel F bass synth and it's super hyped drums and refrain could be placed in any classic 80s action movie you already love. The other tracks are more contemplative and will sound familiar to anyone that owns any of the PCA Black Mill Tapes series. Death Waltz 10"
Pye Corner Audio / Dalhous Run for the Shadows EP Expected 27th May After their participation in Lapsus Festival, both artists agreed to our request to make a split album and the result is "Run For The Shadows", an EP composed of four magnificent tracks, which includes some of the most impressive work from their respective discographies. The kinematics and bubbling sonic frequencies of "Stream Four" and the emotional techno low pulse of "The Simplest Equation" will be well appreciated by fans of Mr. Martin Jenkins aka Pye Corner Audio aka "the favorite artist of your favorite artist". Two extraordinary pieces of analogue electronic music whose slow-(e)motion dynamics adhere to the already mythical Black Mill Tapes. As for Dalhous, they have created two of their best songs to date. The beautiful and incredibly melancholic melodies of "The Essential Wander" are surrounded by an extraordinary rhythm section full of surprising twists. Secondly, the brief but amazingly intense (and painfully beautiful) "Another Witnessed By Resolution" closes one of the best chapters in the history of Dalhous, the magical musical project from Scotland which continues to open new ways in its increasingly personal world, far removed from popular trends. "Run For The Shadows" is, without doubt, the most outstanding album that Lapsus Records has released so far. An exceptional work by two unique artists. An stunning sensory journey.

Andy Bell The View From Halfway Down The debut solo album from Andy Bell, guitarist and vocalist from the legendary shoegazers RIDE. “I’ve always wanted to make a solo album, I’ve always said I would do it, although I never imagined it happening like, or sounding like, this one does,” explains Andy. “I’d been sitting on this pile of almost finished tracks, along with all the other hundreds of ideas that had fallen by the wayside since I’ve been making music. Lockdown gave me the opportunity to find a way to present it to the world. “The album is not about songwriting. There aren’t many verses or choruses, because this album is about sounds, a listening experience.” From the ecstatic psych pop of ‘Love Comes In Waves’, to the heady loops of ‘Indica’ and deeply groove-led ‘Skywalker’, the eight tracks mix summery melodies with soundscapes and studio experimentation. The end result sits neatly between Ride’s widescreen shoegaze and GLOK’s textured electronics, variously inspired by The Stone Roses, Spacemen 3, The Beatles, The Byrds, The Beta Band, Stereolab, Neu!, Can, John Fahey, The Kinks, The La’s, The Who and the United States Of America.
