Ten is the name given to the musical recordings made by Dominic Deane. Ten is a mixture of ambient, instrumental, and electronica sounds. His sound combines electronic keys, shoegaze noise and percussion to create a beautiful sound-scape that moves from slow, eery and melancholic to pulsating and optimistic. Ten have supported Tim Hecker, Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Esmerine (GY!BE/A Silver Mt. Zion,), and Lucky Dragons.

Glottalstop is Oli Barrett (Petrels) who released debut album 'Woodsmoke' on Tartaruga Records earlier this year. Sourced almost entirely from a collection of tape recordings dating back 20 years, the two long-form tracks that make up this LP are an exercise in slowbuild tension, unsettling claustrophobia, and dense textural collage. This distorted tape assemblage is tied together with additional improvised cello and electronics, never standing still, but letting each sound explore its full potential before moving on.
"Insanely awesome debut release from Glottalstop aka the Petrels dude, basking in an unsettling tape manipulated tension. Woodsmoke is **** fantastic, two side long pieces that are dark as hell, the A side is super minimal and the B side cranks the horror volume to 11, the whole thing sounds like a haunted mansion coming to life to chill yer bones." - Anti-Gravity Bunny
