Ô Paon - Courses (2010)Geneviève Castrée (Phil Elverum’s wife) makes a beautiful but somewhat haunting album using tons of vocal layering and repetitive folk-like instrumentation. French vocals, very calming. I first listened to the album because I really liked the album art.

John Talabot - ƒIN (2012)
Balearic beat-based house music evolved in the mid-’80s before becoming the staple of beach raves in Ibiza and European dance clubs during the early ’90s. With his debut album, Fin, Barcelona’s John Talabot builds on these bygone foundations. While there are colorful hints of nostalgia throughout, Talabot never really backpedals. More swampy than tropical, “Depak Ine” opens Fin with a murky ambience of croaking frogs and marshland crickets chirping, as synth tones inspired by Andy Fletcher and pulsing beats slowly seep into the mix. This flourishes into a gothic disco with a choir of haunting vocal samples. Madrid’s Pionel cameos as coproducer in the following “Destiny.” Similarly eerie tones are contrasted by Caribbean-tinged instruments and melancholy singing that would sound right at home on a Cabaret Voltaire recording. Talabot’s penchant for sonic pointillism surfaces in “When the Past Was Present,” a more unapologetically sentimental glimpse at a time when jabbing synths and handclaps flourished on the floor.

Emptyset - Recur
Here, slowly eroding rhythmic patterns rub against dramatic whiplash use of reverb and panning, deliberately spatialising the harsher sonic elements to further confront the listener. Whenever a cycle repeats enough times to almost nod to, a dramatic pause or cutoff intercedes, often combined with an outburst of industrial strength noise.

Have a Nice Life - The Unnatural World
"Since 2010, Have A Nice Life has remained relatively dormant – if you count being dormant as continuously re-pressing Deathconsciousness regularly and penning their new full-length album, The Unnatural World. This eight-song, 47 minute LP is Have A Nice Life’s most monumental work yet; a colossally-sounding, perfectly-orchestrated example of industrial shoegaze. For the firs time, the band has teamed up with San Francisco-based dark music label The Flenser to co-release the full-length alongside their own Enemies List. HANL commented, “We’re excited to be co-releasing the record with another label that shares our values and approach. Working with Flenser lets us keep things comfortable on our end, while also pressing enough copies to actually meet the need and not creating an artificially-inflated collector’s market, as happened with some of our past releases. It’s the best of both worlds.”Have A Nice Life’s The Unnatural World is scheduled for a February 4th, 2014 co-release via The Flenser & Enemies List.”This week’s Album of the Week was chosen by Sunny Baglow.
