I’m sure some of you may be aware of this already but I just thought I’d let everyone know about some new releases coming your way from Make Mine Music.
Make Mine Music was set up in 2002 as a record label managed by the musicians themselves. I’ve collected pretty much everything released on this label as they’ve been a consistently great source of music. I would recommend people to check them out especially if ambient/electronic music is your thing.
The latest releases are as follows:
All Sides – Dedalus : I was impressed with Nina Kernicke’s earlier EP on MMM which veered between the chilling to the serene.
Library Tapes – Sketches EP : Classical and experimental electronica was the order of the day on David Wenngren’s first offering.
Planivaar – The Green Boat : Mark Lippet’s first album on Split Femur Recordings was a rather unassuming listen which showed a lot of promise.
Avrocar – Against The Dying Of The Light : I remember first listening to Avrocar’s ‘Screen’ single almost ten years ago now, when it was played by John Peel. The track still sounds very haunting even now. It’s been eight years since their first album so let’s hope the follow-up has been worth waiting for.
Yellow6 – Merry6mas2007 – Jon Attwood’s dark instrumentals bear comparison with post-rock luminaries such as Labradford and Bark Psychosis and his annual “festive” comps don’t usually disappoint.
July Skies – The Weather Clock : Much like labelmates Epic45, July Skies’ Anthony Harding is intent on capturing beautifully nostalgic moments with his dreamlike music.
MMM’s website is the place to get this fine music: Make Mine Music Site
Needless to say, I have written reviews in the past for all these artists on the old Leonard’s Lair site –
