Review from Forestpunk of Cloud Diameter 2 – Cosmic Jazz For The Age Of Spiritual Machines

Cloud Diameter 2 review

“The story of evolution unfolds with increasing levels of abstraction.”

RAY KURZWEIL, How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed

“By the end of this decade, we will have full-immersion visual-auditory environments, populated by realistic looking virtual humans. By the 2030s, virtual reality will be totally realistic and compelling and we will spend most of our time in virtual environments. By the 2040s, even people of biological origin are likely to have the vast majority of their thinking process taking place in nonbiological substrates. We will all become virtual humans.”

News from the Conning Tower: Sub the Sub

Having given it some thought, and after doing some sums, we’ve decided to enable a new feature which will be of interest to our regular customers: the Submarine Broadcasting Company Supporter’s Club.

It’s a Bandcamp subscription service. You pay £5 a month and you get access to the digital versions of everything we do, plus a large chunk of our back catalogue. You’ll also get a decent discount from our merch, messages from us, and other unique offers. Given that we release roughly two releases every month, averaging between £6 and £10, paying a paltry £5 is great value, not to mention the 30+ releases that will be instantly yours from the back catalogue (with more to be added as time goes by).

You also have the option to spend a little more (£6/month) and get a CD every month, or a little more again (£8/month) and get a cassette every month. How marvellous!

It goes without saying that the subscription model is fantastically beneficial to us too; it offers a predictable income, which allows us to budget for bigger and better releases in the months ahead.

You can get full details about the Supporter’s Club here: https://submarinebroadcastingco.bandcamp.com/supporters-club

Come on in, the water’s lovely.

Review of ‘FROM – A Memory of Tomorrow’ by Yeah I Know It Sucks

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: FROM
Title: A Memory of Tomorrow
Keywords: experimental ambient artprogressive United Kingdom
Label: Submarine Broadcasting Company

Being equipped with a bad memory is not all that handy, but when lovely music achieves to convey a memory of something that will happen tomorrow it is clear that things are becoming more easy. Now there are no worries about forgetting anything, as the events did not yet happen & yet we have a handy sneak preview! Giving us time to get accustomed to it all & Letting it all settle in ready to be stored in our beloved memory section of the mind like a engraver engraving a name in a wedding ring.

The music over here tells us that tomorrow will be one of those drowsy romantic days, one in which sweet mesmerising repetitive songs of singing are playing out on a intelligently calming flow of sentimental goodness. Tomorrow…

Opduvel Review of Cousin Silas – A Night in Centralia

A lovely review of A Night in Centralia from the Opduvel blog. Yes, it’s in Dutch, but assuming you’re using a browser later than Mosaic or Netscape Navigator that shouldn’t be a huge obstacle.

Submarine Broadcasting Company, 2019

Het Engelse label Submarine Broadcasting Company is een onafhankelijk label dat zich specialiseert in experimentele, ambient- en arthousemuziek. Dat levert een breed palet aan muzikale uitingsvormen op en het label blijkt daarbij een goede neus voor kwaliteit te hebben. Niet alleen nieuw talent krijgt een kans, maar ook een ervaren muzikant als Cousin Silas, de naam waaronder de uit het Engelse West Yorkshire afkomstige David Hughes muziek maakt.

Dat doet hij al jaren en met een grote output, getuige de meer dan tachtig uitgaven die zijn uitgebracht bij verschillende netlabels. Vorig jaar verschenen bij Submarine Broadcasting Company de albums Sketches, Rough Drafts and Early Ideas en Radio Galaxies. In november 2018 volgde daarop Spirits of Afrodubism, een samenwerking van Cousin Silas en Glove of Bones. Het nieuwe album ligt echter meer in het verlengde van Radio Galaxies.

Dat betekent dat sombere, sobere en…

News from the Conning Tower: Nerja Sound, A Love Song and future presentations

Hello. Yes, not dead. Been busy.

Unless you have managed to avoid our social media onslaught, you will be aware of our latest big album, a collaboration between elegantly wasted guru and all-purpose troubador t.r. hand and anarcho-syndicalist sommelier and multimedia artist Glove of Bones. Entitled Nerja Sound it’s a brilliant postcard from southern Spain, experimental but very accessible, genre-defying but melodic. As well as the unholy duumvirate of Messrs Hand and Bones, it features a number of acclaimed guest musicians including Cousin Silas, Glauber K. de Souza and Jaime Munarriz.

Check out the album here:

Our other recent release was from newcomers to SBC, Antonella Eye Porcelluzzi and Simone Santarsiero, with a stark and sombre audio poem, A Love Song. It’s a maxi-single containing two mixes, the original Nico-esque version and the more radio-friendly Melodic Mix. 

Listen to A Love Song here:


We have a number of delights in store over the next few months. Lots of work to do, i’s to dot, t’s to cross, dreams to shatter, but two that we think we can safely share are the debut album from Modwump, working title Animal Bitrate, and the second album from the ever-wonderful GOATS: Far Out.

(Spoiler alert: We’ve heard Far Out and it’s proper drop-dead brilliant. GOATS spit on your ‘difficult second album’ lore)

More on both of these releases soon.

Keeps Me Alive – review of Manipulant ‘Sundries And Souvenir’

A lovely review from the lovely people at Keeps Me Alive of our lovely latest release. Lovely.

keepsmealive

Folks! Manipulant is back! Today, February 14, 2019, sees the release of a retrospective of the past couple of years of Manipulant’s work, along with one new song, too!

I’ve been privileged to have a copy of this release here in the KMA Eastern offices for a wee while in advance of the release, and I must say it is amazing to have so much great music in one place. I wondered how the tracks would sound, taken out of context of the original releases, but I needed haven’t worried as it all flows beautifully. Top to bottom this collection showcases the energy and strong, highly creative work of Manipulant in full stride. 

As an added bonus, there’s one new track here,  Melted Roses, Invisible, which happily pops along on a buzzy bassline over busy drums and occasional guitar stabs and a Tom Waits-ish vocal bit. When he says…

News from the Conning Tower: Wilfried Hanrath and Manipulant releases

Two new releases to tell you about. First up and out now is the the beautiful new album from Wilfried Hanrath, Glow.

0015362370_10

Glow limited edition digipak. Rather lovely.

Available in a beautiful limited edition digipak, Glow is an album of captivating and mesmerising music. The music comprises improvisations based on, and re-workings of, the music of Matt Getchell (Matt and Wilfried release music collectively as The Hauchzart Ensemble). Alongside Wilfried, guest artists include Cousin Silas, Walloff Domberg, ./noise and Leonel Cardoso.

In places experimental, sometimes ambient, but always melodic and accessible, Wilfried’s music defies traditional genre classification. Listen to an excerpt here:

 


Fresh! New! Exciting! Available to pre-order now is the new album from Manipulant. Sundries & Souvenir is a retrospective of the last three years of Manipulant music, including some new mixes and brand new songs. We wanted to push the boat out for this release, so we’ve tried ensure a format for everyone. So that means:

  • Vinyl
  • Cassette
  • CD
  • Digital download

And… [drum roll]

  • 8-track cartridge

Yes, we went there. Yes, we are hipsterer than thou. Get over it.

What’s the last 8-track you bought?

You can hear some tracks from the album or pre-order the format of your choice at the SBC Bandcamp store.

News from the Conning Tower: New year, new you

Hello you. Happy new year. Enjoy the break? Yeah, not bad. Quite quiet, actually. Mostly family, you know…

Right, so just a quickie to update you all before we go on our spring/summer hiatus/sabbatical/furlough. It looks like there will be three releases before we hibernate: a brilliant new album from Wilfried Hanrath, a career retrospective from Manipulant and first out the blocks will be the superb hard-electronic/acoustic collab from Hypercube and UNIC6, entitled Binary Planet:

We’re aiming for a 19th January release for Binary Planet, to be available on all major digital platforms, plus CD via Bandcamp.

More on this and the other new releases soon.
