Chromatics Night Drive The first full length Chromatics album to feature Ruth Radelet on vocals, marking a change and expansion with a more electro sound. The album contains the their adored cover of Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill and their original track Tick Of The Clock which made it onto a number of big films including Drive and Taken 2. K. Ross Hoffman praised how Night Drive "evokes widescreen opulence with a sonic palette that extends beyond the bedrock of synths, guitars, and drum machines to include touches of organ, strings, flutes, and so on, but it's always used sparingly, rarely outstepping the group's meticulously minimal, carefully controlled arrangements" Italians Do It Better LP Pre-Order

Polica When We Stay Alive The fifth full length album from American synth-poppers Poliça, titled When We Stay Alive. Sure to feature another dose of their spellbinding and mystical songwriting. The album's title references the idea of moving forward through life - our experiences, both good and bad - and what happens next with the strength we find. "I had been living unconsciously in past trauma," Leaneagh says. "I don't want to deny something happened - this is not about repression - it's about taking the power back from the past, holding the power in the present, and creating a new story for myself."

Yeule Serotonin II yeule is the manifested reflection of Nat ?miel. An ongoing project since 2012, yeule’s music is as ethereal as it dynamic, reflective of her nomadic upbringing. Though she grew up and attended school in Singapore for most of her life, her family traveled often, developing emotional connections with places far from home that left her searching, unmoored, putting forth a creation that is in constant metamorphosis.

Soundwalk Collective / Patti Smith Mummer Love A sonic cross-continental experience, Mummer Love is the second album in the Perfect Vision triptych collaboration between Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith. For this body of work, Soundwalk Collective journeyed to Africa to explore the intricacies of Arthur Rimbaud’s most obscure period. After leaving France and what he deemed the western stagnation’, Rimbaud found himself in Harar, Ethiopia – an epicenter of Sufism in Africa. Sufi practise focuses on the renunciation of worldly things, the purification of the soul and the mystical contemplation of God’s nature. A strand within the wider Islam religion, it focuses on spirituality, meditation and chanting sessions. Sufi music is about reaching a communal ecstatic state, and once you find yourself there, you are granted access to the unknown. Stephan Crasneanscki from Soundwalk Collective spent time with the Sufi masters in Harar to record their music and chants in the shrine, of which he says: “You obtain connections to other levels of yourself and consciousness. This connection, like poetry, is a universal language. A language of the soul, for the soul.” Bella Union CD | LP
