Artist: AGE COIN
Title: Performance
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $25.00
"With a handful of tapes on Posh Isolation, as well as the album Perception on Alter (ALT 013LP, 2012), Kristian Emdal and Simon Formann (aka Age Coin) have developed a project whose momentum and reputation has steadily escalated, finding common ground between electro-acoustic methods and quantized club nights. Both Emdal and Formann are best known as members of Lower. Emdal has lately pivoted his time around Marching Church, a band comprised of some of Copenhagens finest, whilst Formann has been working under the guise of Yen Towers, releasing his debut 12" on Posh Isolation in early 2016 (PI 175EP). "Trespassing on intimate territory," says Emdal of their new recording, "[Performance] cuts a transparent path for everyone to come walking. The album is ultimately a joint effort to process past as well as present experiences within father son relations. In order to make things tangible, scenes are drawn from memory and merged in a shared fictional collage." Performance thrillingly presents Emdal and Formann in a new cryptically lush aspect. There is a sense that one is watching a slide show - familiarity motions like the tide in the form of acoustic instrumentation, and porous synthesized terrains are crossed with a feeling, not a map, nor a memory. As one watches, the creeping ambience comes to be less an invasive sensation and more of a gravitational pull through time itself. Its as effortless as it is disorientating, like being stalked by a relic. Propellants ascend in to the foreground from all directions. Rhythmic NO2 afterglow comes in waves in reverse. Weightlessness is induced; and rebound. Emdal continues, "Take in the view or let yourself be part of the language. Let the engine run and dip in to the swampy collective intelligence. Performance is a hybrid memorial for all domestic actions committed in the name of love." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: BODY SCULPTURES
Title: A Body Turns to Eden
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $23.00
“The formative element is the collaborative pact between Swedens Northern Electronics and Denmarks Posh Isolation. The aesthetic singularity of the project is owed to the distinguished backgrounds of the five contributing artists. Each perspective entails a varying set of working methods and sonic preferences, though it is the sensitivity with which the diversity of these practices are framed in Body Sculptures that assures the project its own space. Jonas Rönnberg is the co-owner of Northern Electronics and is involved in the projects Ulwhednar (with Abdulla Rashim) and Dard Å Ranj Från Det Hebbershålska Samfundet. Erik Enocksson is a highly regarded Swedish composer who has scored countless independent productions. Frederikke Hoffmeiers industrial and experimental project Puce Mary has been the subject of much veneration in recent years. Ossian Ohlsson is from the industrial outfit Vit Fana. Loke Rahbek is the co-founder of Posh Isolation and a member of Damien Dubrovnik and Lust For Youth. The combinations of acoustic and electronic instrumentation, the soiled traces of genre, and the mixed modes of experimentation, are pitched here as an eternal requiem, letting the play between the projects orthodox and unorthodox methods reflect a sharp fatalism.” - Posh Isolation.

Artist: COMMUNIONS
Title: Cobblestones
Format: 7"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $12.00
"Communions (brothers Martin and Mads Rehof together with Jacob van Deurs Formann and Frederik Lind Köppen) is a quartet from the same four-wall rehearsal space as Copenhagen contemporaries Iceage and Lower, and under the same roof as most of Copenhagens punk, industrial and synth scene -- at the studio and venue complex called Mayhem in Copenhagen. Their debut EP maps out the aches and hopes of young hearts with remarkable precision and honesty, and with an unusual ear for melody and songwriting. The guitars scream like torn throats and the songs beat in the rhythm of young hearts overflowing with passion." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: CROATION AMOR
Title: Love Means Taking Action
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $25.00
"Multi-faceted Copenhagen-based artist Loke Rahbekpresents Love Means Taking Action under his alias Croatian Amor. It is the first full-length Croatian Amor recording since 2014s The Wild Palms, a release that was made available on cassette for a single month, and only in exchange for a nude self-portrait. Since the inception of the project, Croatian Amor has dealt with a mixture of fiction and reality, often using real events and places as a platform for a largely fictional play. Where there is playfulness, there is revelation. On Love Means Taking Action - without a doubt the projects strongest work to date - the effect of the perpetual collaging of information is keenly felt. Short, unnerving moments appear with slick familiarity. Voices repeat and quietly glitch through tonal shifts. Listeners are ushered along by the shuddering effect of the samples and field recordings on the pristine synthesis, with motifs and plot lines presented as quickly as they disintegrate. Listeners are enticed to find comfort here but are not guided through a space as with much ambient music. The textures and terrains that Love Means Taking Action presents form an array of scenarios with what at times feels like a punishing degree of indifference to the listener. Listeners are bluntly shown snippets of impassioned architectures. It is a process that draws the listener in through alienation." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: DENNING, F.E.
Title: Cities of Light
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $19.00
"Following several cassette releases since 2011, F.E. Denning now presents Cities of Light, his vinyl debut and his best work to date. The compositions and emotions are more complex than ever before, and with his signature endless pools of synth drones and melodies cascading over each other, he draws out a perfectly paranoid image of a modern metropolis. The equal measures of beauty and horror that occupy the modern sleepless machine cities are presented in a blurred narrative over the records five pieces. Cities of Light feels neither for nor against the concept of mega-city that it displays; the record feels more like someone accepting the state of things, accepting that soon the sunrise will be broadcast on billboards because of smog layers. Accepting that even with millions and millions of people there are no familiar faces appearing in the masses. That the city has become an organism of its own and that any fighting against it has already been integrated into its system. Cities of Light is a beautiful and cinematic drone record, a new level for the work of F.E. Denning, and a very precise portrait of how it feels to be alone with millions around you." - Posh Isolation.
SOLD OUT

Artist: FORZA ALBINO
Title: Infestation
Format: 12"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $22.00
"Forza Albinos debut tape ”MOT” left quite a stir within areas of the industrial scene and to those people ”Infestation” should be no let down. Even if this new piece is somewhat different in approach, the emotional palet is very much the same and once again it leaves the listener in such an uncomfortable place. Strong analogue synthesis and piercing and drooling vocals that stick on to you.." - Posh Isolation. Edition of 250 copies. In plain white disco sleeves with a full-size insert printed on both sides.

Artist: JACKMAN
Title: Bad Intentions
Format: 7"

Artist: KIRKEGAARD, JACOB
Title: 5 Pieces
Format: Triple Cassette
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $25.00
"Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish sound artist residing in Berlin. With an impressive resume that ranges from collaborations with Else Marie Pade to presentations at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art and an extensive recording career, he should need little to no introduction. Kirkegaards first major retrospective solo exhibition opens at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark, on January 30, 2015. In relation to this event Posh Isolation is proud to present a triple-cassette album containing five of Kirkegaards previously unreleased works. The five compositions all bear the signature sound of Kirkegaards processed field recordings slowly evolving into carefully crafted drone works, rich in both detail and emotion. Limited to 200 copies." - Posh Isolation.
SOLD OUT

Artist: KIRSTEIN, TR & JACOB KIRKEGAARD
Title: Imperia
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $22.00
"IMPERIA is an art work based on recordings from the now defunct Nuclear Power Plant Barsebäck located in southern Sweden, and is a recording unlike most. The incredible strength of the source sound dances delicate through the clear drones and balances the piece in a strange and alluring place, never too demanding yet never relaxed. An essential piece of danish modern sound art." - Posh Isolation. Edition of 300 copies. Letterpress jackets, a full-size letterpress insert, and an A4 insert.

Artist: MARCHING CHURCH
Title: Throughout the Borders
Format: 7"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $9.00
"When we described the first Marching Church tape, that came out about 2 years ago, we called it ”very strange music” – and now with his first 7” it is clear, that it is a label that still applies. On ”Throughout the Borders” Marching Church presents four very different pieces, that all manages to stand strong on their own ground. The artist behind should need little introduction at this point. Elias Bender Rønnenfelt has over the last couple of years made heads turn. First and foremost as the singer of notorious Iceage, and lately as part of the project Vår. Marching Church’s ”Throughout the borders” is another proof why the young man has rightfully earned his reputation. He makes music that sounds like nothing else and with such a pop sensibility that it makes you feel as if you have met it somewhere before. This does not sound like Iceage and it does not sound like Vår, it sounds like what it is; four new tracks from Marching Church, blood drenched music, carved from the chest of the young craftsman." - Posh Isolation. Edition of 500 copies.
SOLD OUT

Artist: NORIN
Title: Bakom Planteringen
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $24.00
“Hannes Norrvide, best known as the frontman of acclaimed synth trio Lust For Youth, presents the debut of his Norin solo project. Norin is far removed from the refined rave anthems of Lust For Youth, yet still one can sense that Båkom Planteringen takes place under searching club lights, in a weightless mind state. While the five tracks on Norins debut utilize a techno sound pallet, the nauseating arpeggios and obscure, tape-treated voices are not likely to fill dancefloors. There is a desperation in the music not unlike the desperation of hearing ones heartbeat in ones ears after too many hours under strobe lights. Despite the motorik propulsion across much of Båkom Planteringen it mostly registers as a kind of slow-motion anxiety in full resolution. This is the sound of ODing in the chill-out room.” - Posh Isolation.

Artist: NORIN
Title: Reflekterar
Format: 12"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $16.00
"Hannes Norrvide has had a busy year and now he is ready with the second vinyl release under his Norin guise. Reflekterar sees Norrvide further explore the textures of hazed out underwater acid. It is paired with a more aggressive DNA coding, especially the track "Nästan" with washes of static bleeding into alarm-like synth pulses and nearly broken beats. Reflekterar is made up of three new tracks from Norin - three tracks that all seem to agree on a program, a program of building things for the sole purpose of teaing them down again." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: PAVLOVSKI, MISCHA
Title: Kapitel
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $19.00
"Kapitel is the debut recording from the Russian-Swedish musician Mischa Pavlovski, now based in Copenhagen. Pavlovski has previously played in punk and metal bands that have also released on Posh Isolation, and his solo debut offers a very different take on sound, though in equally dark territory. Kapitel is a monolithic piece of minimal, ambient techno. It is quite beyond belief that this is someones debut: with an incredible ear for composition and timing, Pavlovski presents four tracks, each leading into the next with heavy, pulsing bass; distant, desolated melodies; paranoid, ambient soundscapes; and an underlying steady kick binding it all together. With a running time of almost 40 minutes it still manages to keep its listener captivated from the first kick to the last synth. Drugs, anxiety, club lights turning off one by one, waking dreams." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: PUCE MARY
Title: The Spiral
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $23.00
“The Spiral is Puce Marys third LP for Posh Isolation. It follows where 2014s critically acclaimed Persona left off. Working more precisely than ever, The Spiral binds the listener in a tight web of sharp synthesizers, hammering percussion, obscured vocals, field recordings, and blistering noise. Intimidatingly personal, though never allowing the introspection to become aimless, Puce Mary manages to honor the history of industrial music and noise while simultaneously transforming it. The Spiral is harsh, but the aggression of the compositions never feels unnecessarily overstated or irrelevant. As the feverish sexuality of The Spiral comes into focus as the albums cornerstone, the exertion of the recording is problematized and turns errant. The vestige of safety in dominance and submission is antagonized as audience and artist take turns being dealt blows. The Spiral charts this instability as a perennial tonic in sound. With an already impressive discography and live career, Puce Mary has manifested herself as a key voice in new experimental electronic music. This album is further proof that she has earned her praise.” - Posh Isolation.

Artist: SAND CIRCLES
Title: Motor City
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $26.00
“Stockholm-based musician and producer Martin Herterich has released and performed under various guises since the mid-2000s, with Sand Circles being both his longest-running and most recognized project. With this reissue of Motor City (originally released on cassette in 2012 by Not Not Fun Records), Sand Circles first major appearance on vinyl is rightfully made with his most important work. The arpeggiated motifs that circle Herterichs hazy rhythms, as well as the cool-dawn synths, casually point to Detroit from a distance, while the tape-saturated, cinematic synth lines and the simple electronic percussion present the idea of a metropolis.” - Posh Isolation.

Artist: SAND CIRCLES
Title: Motor City Remixes
Format: 12"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $16.00
"Remixes of tracks from Sand Circles Motor City by Yen Towers, Abdullah Rashim, Quiltland, and 1991. From blissed-out, droney tape works to sharp dancefloor tracks, each of the four remixes presents a beautiful elaboration and articulation of the originals.” - Posh Isolation.

Artist: SKULLFLOWER/LIMEPIT
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $22.00

2009 release (#10 on the label). Limepit is members of Sarahs Charity (Heavy Blossom, Arbor, etc). "Dark, clandestine noise from England and Denmark. Artwork by Rasmus Rosengaard. Silkscreened covers. Mastered at Dubplates and Mastering by FST. 333 copies." - Posh Isolation. With A4 insert.

Artist: SLAEGT
Title: Ildsvanger
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $19.00
"Ildsvanger is the first full-length offering from the Copenhagen-based black metal project Slægt, and its also unarguably their strongest and most mature release to date. Performed and recorded by protagonist Oskar J. Frederiksen with drums by Adam Ccsquele Nielsen, Ildsvanger follows the same path as laid out on their earlier releases but the ten tracks that shape their new full-length takes us much further into the darkness. With Ildsvanger, Slægt manages to deliver some of the hardest hitting anthemic black metal magic that has come out of Denmark in a long time. Co-released with Final Agony Records. Limited to 500 copies." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: STADSGAARD, CHRISTIAN
Title: The Source of Disintegration
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $22.00
"Strong synth noise. Second edition with alternative covers." "All infrastructure, all foundations, have a crack, a breaking point, a dead end, a source of disintegration. This is the sound of collapse. Cold broken drone vanishing into stagnancy, sonic representations of the endless lifeless, the uncured, the cursed. An ocean of frequencies for the drowning, a meditation of endings." - Posh Isolation. Edition of 100 copies. Paste-on cover art and an A4 insert.

Artist: STREET DRINKERS
Title: Dead Secrets

February 2012 release. Limited to 250 copies.

Artist: VANESSA AMARA
Title: Both of Us/King Machine
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $19.00
"Posh Isolation presents Vanessa Amaras 2013 debut, the cassette Both of Us, on vinyl, with its sister recording from 2012, King Machine. Vanessa Amara, one of the strongest new voices in Danish experimental music, is the work of Birk Gjerlufsen Nielsen accompanied by his friend and long-time collaborator Victor Kjellerup Juhl. There is eminent beauty in the work of Vanessa Amara -- beauty that few people manage to reach in their work. The fragile and romantic compositions of synth, organ, piano, percussive tape loops, and guitar hold an incredible feeling of urgency and a wonderful originality. Both of Us and King Machine share a similar approach and feeling, yet certain differences persist. Like two different offerings to the same alter or the different heartbeats of two young men dueling over one girl. In an interview with Flesh War, Gjerlufsen Nielsen described the recording of Both of Us: "I recorded the music in the Winter of 2012-2013 with help from my closest friend in a small summer house by the sea, in the north of Sjælland... We had all our recording gear in the house and stayed there until late spring, late April... We asked the closest church with an organ if we could record in the church throughout the months we stayed there. The church was 30 km away, we had to bike their early in the morning and reached the church when it was still dark... We stayed in the church the following day and night, until we had recorded what we needed, drank their holy wine, ate their dry crackers, biked back to the house, and the following months we made tape loops and recorded synth and guitar, closely following the season change, waking up with the birds, finding youth in the April sunsets glow." Posh Isolation is proud to be able to present a work of this caliber from such a beautiful young voice." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: VANESSA AMARA
Title: Youre Welcome Here
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $24.00
“Vanessa Amara, the duo of Birk Gjerlufsen andVictor Kjellerup, follow their 2014 vinyl debut, Both of Us/King Machine (Posh Isolation), with Youre Welcome Here, a work that realizes the immense potential of their previous efforts. Built around church organ, string quartet, tapes, and synthesizers, the seven pieces that make up Youre Welcome Here are immediately, though not forcefully, arresting. Youre Welcome Here is as intimidating as it is beautiful; an emotive rendering of Gjerlufsen and Kjellerups musical finesse.” - Posh Isolation.

Artist: VARG
Title: Star Alliance
Format: Double LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $34.00
"After Star Alliances initial release as a limited six tape-box set in late 2015, it was apparent that there was a need for a reissue. Its presented here as a remastered double LP set with a selection of the best work and a few new tracks. Over the last few years, Varg has manifested himself, not only as one of the most productive new voices in European electronic and techno music - with countless releases and projects - but also as one of the most interesting of the lot. Star Alliance has tracks of spacious acid standing next to heavy industrial rhythms, piercing abstract modular synth work, beautiful soundscapes, piano pieces and field recordings. And while the techniques, qualities and styles differ with almost every track, they stand perfectly together and shape a beautiful narrative." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: WHITE VOID
Title: Were Falling
Format: 12"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $18.00
"White Void is the solo project of Frederik Lind Köppen, drummer of the four-piece band Communions (who debuted on Posh Isolation with Cobblestones (PI 125EP)). White Void is a different beast, distorted and unique in its compositions, and difficult to fit under any genre term. While the production leans toward primitive punk and metal, the tracks carry with them an underlying pop sensibility that makes it hard to explain, but proves yet again that Frederik Lind Köppen is, even with his young age, already an incredibly talented songwriter and a unique musical mind. Young and unbalanced heart-throbbing rock music." - Posh Isolation.

Artist: YEN TOWERS
Title: Bidders Must Justify Their Price
Format: 12"
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $16.00
"Yen Towers is Copenhagens Simon Formann, known for his work as a member of Lower and Age Coin. One could describe Bidders Must Justify Their Price as a Skype meeting between the global financial system and a field recordist. The music itself is a slick propellant, with the pixelated fog of dub at the edge of everything. The EP opens on uneasy garage-inflected terrain, giving little preparation for the hypnotic glances of ones own ficto-reality that is to come. The tracks swing with the circling motion of its minimalist techno components. This is club music for the world market." - Posh Isolation.
