New electronic works for analogue machinery from Napalm Death co-founder Nicholas Bullen; Eerie experimental songcraft and idiosyncratic atmospheres from London voice and double bass duo Sealionwoman; Music for prepared fender rhodes, tape machines, electronics and motors from composers Michael Cutting and Vitalija Glovackyte under their Kinder Meccano moniker.
