Lend Me Your Radio

Harvesting August's riches, finally: from the ultimate space rock of Robert Curgenven's (inter)stellar Climata ("made entirely in Turrell Skyspaces...for best results use an external speaker, pointed upwards or away from you") to Stephan Mathieu's predictably mesmerising Stasis 6 ("a stereo mixdown from an excerpt of a 58-channel installation piece of 52 minutes duration" from his Before Nostromo for The Morning Line) - & via a host of LMYE loves (including William Basinski & RIchard Chartier [both with & without each other, & Chartier both under his own name & as Pinkcourtesyphone], Duane Pitre, Ezekiel Honig & Yann Novak) & discoveries - here are 25 pieces that stood out for these ears over the month...

Also featuring Danny Clay & Greg Gorlen, Erstlaub, Fennesz & King Midas SoundBilly GombergRafael Anton IrisarriTatsuro KojimaDarren McClureToshimaru Nakamura & CelerOfftheskyYui OnoderaNils Quak, Benoit Pioulard, Simon ScottAndrew TuttleSimon Whetham, :zoviet*france: & a raft of Dauw/Eilean Records artists. 

Note Pitre's comment that the moving, strikingly serene Bayou Electric is his "last “solo” album 4 foreseeable future"...

Note too that all proceeds from Tuttle's 177 go to the Malindza Refugee Camp Library "where your enjoyment of great experimental music goes to continuously fund the library that serves over 400 refugees from all over Africa". 

Finally, most of the 25 are gathered into a 3-hour playlist if you've got some time (it's also at the bottom here). A few not on SoundCloud (Erstlaub, Mathieu) or where the preferred version is in another format (Fennesz & King Midas Sound, Simon Scott) are bunged in alongside...
