Mirror Radius arrives
Preston Parris (aka preston.outatime) has joined forces with Subexotic with his third studio album Mirror Radius. This is a beautfully conceived, kaleidoscopic, mature work that seeks to contemplate some big philosophical ideas, taking a deep look at being lost as a positive thing, especially when exploring the natural world.
A special edition compact disc is also available, including a double slipcase design with cutout panel, 6 panel inlay, high quality replicated disc, and releases on Friday 17th December.
Surroundings - Special Edition CD
Goodparley & Ioan Morris have conjured up a marvellous set of "electronic tone poems", expressing deep aural musings of the world. Built from Morris’ synth soundscapes and augmented by Goodparley’s layers of improvised guitar, reflecting both the isolation of the album’s creation during lockdown, but also optimism of returning to the wider world.
The special edition Compact Disc release goes on pre-order on 5th November, for release on 26th November 2021, and includes a striking double slipcase design, with a 6 panel inlay, an artist portrait postcard, and high quality replicated CD.

Rupert Lally // Beyond The Night // Early-bird Bandcamp exclusive
Rupert Lally's hotly anticipated new album Beyond The Night releases on Friday 13th August 2021 - don't be unlucky enough to miss out.
Lally's score is superb, combining elements of jazz, industrial, contemporary classical and electronica, with the resulting mix sounding akin to a soundtrack to a Wim Wenders film if composed by Jan Garbarek, Carl Craig and Max Richter.
The Bandcamp release also includes an early-bird bonus, with the first 50 copies including 2 exclusive short story artcards, written and designed by Rupert Lally himself.
*UPDATE: The early-bird bonus edition sold out in under 45 minutes, many thanks to everyone who supported this. Good news for anyone who missed out - a night-owl edition, consisting of the last remaining copies of sodium yellow vinyl, is still available through Bandcamp.
An gàrradh - SAY awards 2021
We are delighted to confirm Letters From Mouse's enchanting album An gàrradh is in the running for Scottish album of the year 2021.
Using pared down modular synthesis, this much-loved album narrates the artist's relationship with the natural world, as viewed from the rear window of his lockdown retreat. The whimsical joy of life, coupled with the melancholy sorrow incumbent in this mortal coil, make for a compelling journey. If you missed it's initial release, there is limited stock of the beautiful transparent green vinyl edition still available..
AUM TAEPPERS CD Bandcamp exclusive
Subexotic Records are delighted to be working with the super-talented duo Aum Taeppers. Their debut album Oumbra simultaneously flirts with krautrock, electronica and minimal music tropes, moving from impenetrable electronic thickets into restless rhythms of euphoria and back again, fluctuating between psychedelic noise, leftfield popular music and a beloved midnight movie ambience.
Their striking debut album is now available as a beautifully eye-popping CD package, including imagery artwork from Aum Taeppers' own Daniel Vujanic. This is exclusive to Bandcamp and numbers are limited.
Release date: 30 July
