30 ambient, acoustic and electronic tracks, all called snow, for escaping the stress of the holiday season. sometimes you just don't need Noddy Holder shouting in your ear, and that's exactly why London indie label wiaiwya has put together 30 ambient, acoustic and electronic tracks, all called snow, for escaping the stress of the holiday season "I’m imagining cancelling Christmas parties to turn the lights down, put on your slippers and have a listen over a sherry, or getting back from town after doing your shopping, running a bath and putting it on" The 30 acts involved are: Spaceship is a Todmorden based producer of geologically inspired drones and scrapes, often recorded on location Pulselovers: Northern Minimalism from the heart of South Yorkshire inspired by memory and location. Sweet Juice make utsider music from the inside. Old gear given new life Lo Five is the electronic project of Wirral-based producer Neil Grant. The Heartwood Institute deliver hauntronica from the heart of the English Lake District Beneather is obsessively crafting sad, lo-fi, ambient scandi-dreampop submerged in gently fuzzy tape loops. Sunken broadcasts of half recalled memories. Distant, partial and obscured. Keith Seatman delivers Musical Oddness & Wistful Tootling. Odd Electronics, Psych Radiophonics some quirky melodies and always confused. Polypores (aka Stephen James Buckley) paints music with a modular synthesizer, drawing influence from ambient, new age, and experimental electronics. It soars, bubbles, crackles, and soothes, in ever-shifting, immersive cosmic landscapes. Dream environments and sonic sculptures The Great Electric make motorik psychedelia and have a shared love of sound collage, improvisation and cut-and-paste recording techniques Band of Cloud - Hypnotic ambience, fragile and fleeting, through space and time. It drifts away and floats back down. Soniclouds and brittle stars. Field Glass blend found sounds, vintage electronic equipment and antique acoustic instruments to create folk tinged electronic music. Twenty-Three Hanging Trees: twilit modular synth tales from Cambridge based Xavier Watkins D Rothon - unusual instrument combinations create cinematic textures with an undercurrent of mystery Jack Hayter supplies moderately accurate reportage with vaguely relevant soundscapes Isnaj Dui makes awkwardly familiar but unsettling noises using flutes, stringed things and electronics. Textile Ranch is the nom-de-plume of former Piano Magician, Glen Johnson, providing an outlet for his more playful experiments with electronic music. Jonathan Sharp is a composer and sound designer based in Cumbria. The Nameless Book makes wildly inconsistent and exceedingly selfish music and has done for a while now. For some reason they keep being asked to contribute to compilations like this, so the logical thing to do is to keep submitting noise until label bosses the world over learn their lesson. The quest continues... Basic Design is usually Matt Ashton from The Leaf Library playing machines and guitars Subphotic provide analogue folktronica wrapped around haunting vocals, found sounds and field recordings from the stones, and the fields, and the forests. Field Lines Cartographer is "The sound of big, strange worlds" - Electronic Sound Magazine numün : NYC-based group emits ambient psychedelic episodes that unfurl to East and West Andrew Tuttle dwells in a between world where five-string banjo and six-string acoustic guitar sit serenely and purposefully with shimmering waves of decay, reverberation and processed electronics. Holding a space that is abundant and generous, Tuttle makes outsider music that turns its listeners into insiders — beckoning a journey which unfolds many heartopening moments. the Autobahn of Life sounds as if Felt and Saint Etienne had recorded the lift music for the Sapporo Winter Olympics in 1972. The June Carriers provide aural still lifes through expressionist guitar loops. Hilary Robinson: Composed and improvised music for instruments, often acoustic, sometimes with voice and other sounds. Various genres. The French were an electronic band born out of the ashes of the critically lauded group 'Hefner'. Darren Hayman and John F Morrison have produced their first music by The French in over 20 years. The British Stereo Collective provides the soundtrack for an imagined or half-remembered past. Pelydron is your go-to for post-rock dreampop filled with robo-drums, melty melodies and fuzzy feels. World Of Fox enjoys crossgenre sonic meddling, formerly from the industrial heart of Britain, now ringing out across the mountains of North Wales
