Spectre - Ruff Kutz
For a label more well known for their forward looking aesthetic and uncompromising adherence to the new this is something of a surprise. Exhumed from the vaults of mid-90s dubwise experimentation comes this re-issue of Brooklyn hip-hop outlaw Spectre's 1998 mixtape Ruff Cutz featuring contributions from the likes of Bill Laswell and Kevin "The Bug" Martin along with a host of less well known acts.

Various Artists - Raiz Iberica
Raiz Iberica is a 2014 release of various artists from Spain and Portugal.  Each of the bands here has deep connections with their roots and history.  It’s sort of an introduction to Iberian folk music.  Together they have initiated us to the history, myths and legends of the Iberian Peninsula.
Andreas Brandal - Hidden Rooms
Here’s an exquisitely packaged cassette from Andreas Brandal, on Tranquility Tapes; with effectively pointillistic artwork printed over the inlay and the blue tape. This visual element suggests a hidden magic - almost a Blakeian vision of the world; with the accompanying nine tracks, amounting to nearly forty minutes, marking out a similarly otherworldly space - albeit one very tied to the real world.
Tundra - Tajnie i Głębie
Tundra  is  an electro acoustic drone/ambient  project from Gdańsk  Poland- the project is a two piece affair & consists of Dawid Adrjanczyk and Krzysiek Joczyn. "Tajnie i Głębie" ( English translation Mysteries and Depths)- is the bands  full debut release, and it comes in the form of a six track CD.
Abyzm /Toxic Bliss - Untitled
From 2013 here’s a double CDR split that brings together a disc a piece from two US walled noise projects- and featured here are Kansas City based Abyzm, and Greeley Colorado based Toxic Bliss.
Circle - Leviatan
Leviatan finds  Circle in a more mellow, laid-back & stripped back sonic mood. The albums nine tracks offer up a more kraut-rock focused acid folk vibe, with the whole thing been  based mainly around acoustic instrumentation, taking in banks of strummed guitar,  bouzouki, acoustic percussion, banjo, and dulcimer- all topped off with layers of moody Finish & English vocals, & subtle keyboard / organ traces.
