SERENITY IN THE WOODS EP
albrecht la brooy s analogue attic imprint welcomes citizen maze onto its roster with the four-track serenity in the woods ep. australian duo albrecht la brooy have been steadily carving out a name for themselves over the past few years with their jazz-inflected take on deep house via the likes of apollo/r&s, night tide and of course their own analogue attic imprint which has become a home for their own output as well as fellow australian artists like sleep d, rings around saturn and more. here though we see the label offer up the inaugural ep from melbourne s adam mccoy aka citizen maze. leading on the package is the ten-minute natural playgroun , embracing the labels signature field recording background aesthetic whilst stirring in organic drum grooves, fluttering pads and jazzy sax licks throughout. glade hollow follows with bumpy, off-kilter drums and ethereal chords at its core whilst horn lines and twinkling synth melodies wander across its eight-minute duration. moonlight sanctuary opens the flip-side, edging into darker territories with murky dubbed out synth flourishes, robust drums and tension building strings before title-track serenity in the woods rounds out the package, laying focus on a snaking sub bass groove, metallic percussive shuffles and expansive atmospherics.
THE BLUFF EP
albrecht la brooy s analogue attic imprint returns this may with a solo project from one half of the duo, alex albrecht, under his newly formed melquiades guise... the past few years have seen albrecht la brooy steadily hone their unique spin on house & techno via self-released gems & acclaimed projects on night tide, voyage records and butter sessions, culminating with the release of their debut long player tidal river on apollo/r&s earlier this year . this solo material from alex s new alias (soon to be debuted on scissor & thread) takes a more dancefloor orientated approach. the material recorded live, retaining an improvised feel and managing to capture the surreal and mysterious atmosphere of the australian bush. combining atmospheric field recordings, jazz tinged double bass-licks and bright piano elements, all woven together with the label s trademark intricately programmed rhythms, the bluff ep is an engaging, mesmerising and addictive addition to the label s already well-loved output...
after the success of 2016 s open water , udmo returns with three meticulous compositions based on themes of industry and space. the tightly woven, grooving ethereal sounds that we have come to associate with this young artist are even more developed with his second release. label heads albrecht la brooy contribute with a deeply hypnotic friday arvo knock-off remix suited to the early hours.
analogue attic s first full-length album comes from local jazz musician, matthew hayes. based on themes and memories from around victoria, indigo sounds like the feeling of diving through waves and sitting on golden sand. meditative synth lines and hayes stunning bass guitar work ebbs and swells like the ocean. a beautiful first release from this up and coming artist.

on their launch last september, australian label analogue attic promised to showcase the gentle side of electronic music down under. theyre as good as their word on this second release, which comes from rory mcpike under his rings around saturn alias. operating on a similar plane to the tactile, picturesque soundscapes of lord of the isles more spacey work, both erosion and portion 22 offer dreamy chords, becalmed melodies and sparse, spaced-out rhythms. there are a few sly winks towards vintage ambient house throughout, particularly on gypsy village, a luscious combination of liquid melodies and eyes-closed hypnotism. label bosses sean la brooy and alex albrecht go further towards vintage ambient territory on their sublime bathtime arrangement of portion 22.
