Onboard the ship ms Stubnitz, version - the other music embraces post-rock guitars, complex electronic rhythms, all-out noise, twisted ballads and ambient deep listening.
From Pan Sonic's earthquaking delicacy to Autechre's utterly human machine funk; from Fennesz's warm glaciers of glistening sound to the ear-bursting introspection of Wolf Eyes; from Tunng's digitally-enhanced odes to primitivism to Scion's massive dedication to the minimum, all are artists who handpick colours from unbounded palettes and paint their own version of how sound should be.
