Review: Considering the whole idea behind this album was to try and break free from the restrictive parameters of songwriting structure in its traditional sense, Christopher Bear - AKA Fools, AKA Grizzly Bear's drummer and multi-instrumental maestro - has actually created something that feels incredibly tight and precisely executed. Not exactly the expected results from a nine-week improvisation session that focused on finding out what might come from what. During that time, Bear would record jam sessions on one instrument before experimenting over the top with another, often driven by a desire to create a sonic response to the original sounds. Perhaps not so fast and loose, then, but instead following a clear and concise idea, nevertheless what we're offered is a collection of beguiling, dreamy pieces unbound in genre terms but defined by lush, exotic downtempo journeys.

Review: Back in 2017, Damon G Roddick - yep, Dam-Funk himself - unveiled a new project on Music From Memory, Garrett. Since then, he's delivered two albums of evocative, melodious and, by his standards, melancholic synthesizer music that add a picturesque, almost Balearic tinge to his usually forthright synth-funk sound. Here he presents what he says is the third and final installment in the trilogy, once again painting colourful, emotive musical pictures with little more than a bank of vintage synths and a couple of drum machines. As you'd expect, it's as on-point, entertaining and enjoyable as its predecessors, delivering the kind of attractive, sofa-friendly synth sounds that are guaranteed to put smiles on stressed and miserable faces.

Review: Music From Memory is a new label founded by Redlight Records duo Tako Reyenga and Abel Nagenast and fellow Amsterdam dweller Jamie Tiller and arrives with the mission statement "Giving overlooked and unreleased music that we love a second chance." Whilst there are plenty of labels going down the reissue path with varying degrees of musical integrity, its clear this trio have the best intentions at heart and their debut releases sets the bar truly high. The ocean loving Rhode Island based keyboardist and singer song writer Leon Lowman self released a series of albums in the early 80s dedicated to his hometown and the various women he tried to woo during this period. Executed as lo-fi beach funk and lazy synth jams in a manner that sounds way ahead of it's time, Lowman's work never received the wider acclaim it truly deserves and these albums have become highly sought after curios (check the Discogs listings for his debut LP Syntheseas) Material from both his 1980s albums features on Liquid Diamonds along with unreleased material that Lowman recorded at the time and this 12 track collection is likely to prove very popular with the musical historians out there!

Review: A warm welcome back to Gaussian Curve member and Melody as Truth founder Jonny Nash, whose last solo album of gentle, guitar-laden ambient explorations appeared back in 2017. Interestingly, "Make A Wilderness" is something of a departure from his trademark sound. While still gentle, ambient and evocative, it relies far more heavily on poignant piano work, heart-aching female vocalizations, field recording style aural textures, distant cello parts and ghostly electronics. There's much beauty to be found, but it's a far creepier and in some ways melancholic set than we've come to expect. This is no great criticism, though, because "Make A Wilderness" is superb from start to finish.

Review: The unstoppable Music From Memory label invites you into another musical dream world, this time in the form of a reissued "lost" art record from Italian Wave duo Alessandro Pizzin and Piergiuseppe Ciranna aka Ruins. This first volume of "Marea/Tide: Sound & Image Research" is taken from music made for art galleries, exhibitions and various multimedia projects back in the 1980s. It is a gorgeous mix of synth and ambient that was lost when only 300 copies were pressed and because of legal disagreements, were later destroyed. All hail Music From Memory for their work on this one.

Review: Having introduced Spanish ambient pioneer Suso Saiz to a wider audience via last year's superb Odisea retrospective, Music From Memory has scored a new album from the long-serving musician and composer. Rainworks was recorded over a two-month period in early 2016, and sees Saiz evocatively join the dots between Jonny Nash style guitar-led ambience, gently undulating, piano-driven mood pieces, evocative collages of found sounds and field recordings (see opener "From Memory & The Sky"), and ghostly, effects-laden ambient. He also finds time to pay tribute to Steve Reich style American minimalism on the cyclical brilliance of "They Don't Love Each Other".

  16. Nothing Ends 2018 (6:23)
Review: "Nothing Is Objective" is Spanish ambient and new age veteran Suso Saiz's second album of new material for esteemed Dutch imprint Music From Memory. It's every bit as beguiling as his previous outing, 2017's "Rainworks", though it does feel a little richer, warmer and more humid. At 16 tracks deep, it's something of an epic, with Saiz exploring a range of musical moods with the aid of undulating electronics, ethereal chords, meandering melodies, chiming sounds, droning aural textures and occasional sun-bright instrumentation. There are far too many highlights to mention, but we're particularly enjoying the loopy hypnotism of "Mexican Bells (For Jorge Reyes)", the delay-laden guitars of "Minimal Distance", the slowly unfurling movements of "Frogs In Love" and the Pat Metheny style positivity of "Meccano".

  2. Ivory Playground - "Ivory Playground" (6:46)
  3. Atlantis Transit Project - "Bird Perspective" (4:19)
  4. Ramuntcho Matta - "Zoique III" (4:50)
Review: Music From Memory are spending some time exploring the world of music created for dance and performance. There's a common interest in experimentation between the mediums, but not at the cost of musicality, which comes here with a distinct 80s veneer. Gerard Stokkink has a thread of drama and poise about the vivid synthscapes of "Yellow Turtles" while the self-titled track from Ivory Playground calls to mind the delicate fingerpicking guitar you might expect to hear from Alexis Georgopoulos & Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Atlantis Transit Project have a heavier tribal lilt to the percussion on "Bird Perspective", and Ramuntcho Matta's "Zoique III" holds a mirror up to the freaky disco drum work of Jan Schulte and Niklas Wandt.

Review: Amsterdam label Music from Memory started their 12" series in order to present music that "was never available in this format but might just feel more at home there". The debut in the series from obscure San Francisco artist Joel Graham set the bar high, and we are happy to report this latest 12" featuring the work of UK artist Michal Turtle is just as good! A precursor to a wider retrospective planned on MFM, Are You Psychic? features two tracks from the early 80s Turtle improvised in his parents living room using various bits of gear and will delight anyone with a taste for discovering obscure electronic music from days gone by. B side track "Astral Decoy" is a particularly delightful production!

Review: Back in 2016 Music From Memory took a deep dive into the archives of obscure British multi-instrumentalist Mike Turtle, resurfacing with a fine double-album of largely previously unheard cuts. Two years on they've taken another stroll through Turtle's well-stocked vault, resulting in another essential collection of quirky cuts. Check, for example, the psychedelic patchwork "Reincarnation", where backwards drums do battle with exotic Indian samples, or the delay-laden, lo-fi synth-pop pulse of "Uiko's Return to Jeka", which boasts strange spoken word vocals from Turtle and South African style juju guitar solos. You'll find these kinds of imaginative experiments throughout; tracks that really shouldn't work, but instead entertain, excite and inspire in equal measure.

Review: Some hush-hush, no-nonsense action here from Adam 'Admin' Wickens on a highly limited, info-free white label 12". The Bristol-based producer is in deliciously jazzy deep house mode, crafting two irrepressibly breezy gems out of elements of classic jazz cuts and his own innate musicality. A-side 'Step Into The Light' is particularly good, with Wickens layering a dusty deep house groove with fluid piano motifs, distant horn samples and warming bass. 'Reflect & Heal' is similarly sunny and spiritual in feel, albeit with denser and more energetic percussion, deeper piano chords and some rather lovely clarinet solo action. Simply sumptuous.

Review: The first volume of Outro Tempo was a standout release in Music From Memory's immaculate catalogue when it landed in 2017. Dealing in intriguing folds of Brazilian electronic music, this second installment serves up yet another feast of lesser known talents spanning swooning synth pop and ethereal ambience and plenty more in between. Take an exotic thrill ride through the dense thickets of Low Key Hackers or bliss out to the meandering jazz funk experimentation of Jorge Degas and Marcelo Salazar - wherever you turn the breadth and quality of the sounds on offer are nothing short of mind-blowing. At 20 tracks deep, it's also astounding value for money.
