Lost Highways: American Road Songs 1920s-1950s

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Brett on 23rd July 2009

Lost Highways: American Road Songs 1920s-1950s is a compilation so this is going to be one of those listy reviews. Well known people on this release include Johnny Cash, Robert Johnson, Nat 'King' Cole, Woody Guthrie, Big Joe Williams, Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis 'and many more'. Stylistically it's all over the shop with blues ramming into boo…view full details.

7/10 according to our Clinton on 18th June 2014

"Minimal but nice". I'm liking this 12" Smoky late night dub-inflected atmospherics. The opening track 'Gravure' is like smoke twirling off a 'funny' cigarette and colliding with a set of windchimes. Really 3AM after-the-party stuff. 'Continuum' get the party going again with some classic drum & bass moves. 'Typeface' is also beat driven &nb…view full details.

9/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 10th September 2013

All you ‘80s synth fans will be into this one. Hunter Complex is Lars Meijer, and here he’s making some euphoric ‘80s pop with prominent Yamaha DX7 and Roland D-50 tones which make it sound totally ‘Airwolf’, but with the sun-bleached soundtracky heat haze of ‘Inner Tube&…view full details.

I won’t bang on about this for long as we’re all familiar with GZAs masterpiece ‘Liquid Swords’. Infact, it’s been reissued in a number of guises over the past couple of years including a version with a chess board! They’re rinsing it for all it’s worth and who can blame ‘em afterall, it’s un…view full details.

What a treat! The 2LP soundtracks to George Romero’s ‘Day Of The Dead’ just hit our office, with one LP on lurid yellow and the other on a spooky green marble. It’s in a chunky thick gatefold with lengthy liner notes from the Romero and composer John Harrison as well. This label Waxwork did a…view full details.

This has got to be one of the most exciting developments in the unfolding Death Waltz saga so far - reissues of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth’s scores to his excellent Halloween sequels. Sadly no sign yet of a new pressing of the first Halloween but I’m quietly crossing my f…view full details.

It's a challenging morning for me today.

This one's nice. This is the "first true collaboration" between Donato Dozzy and Tin Man according to the press release, which seems to imply that it won't be the last. That's fine by me, since I'm totally vibing off these three tracks. It's supremely chilled out techno which masterfully blends the ambient sounds of the former with the acid of t…view full details.

This is the debut album from this Australian pianist and it will have you reaching for the Kleenex as there are some tear inducing moments of beauty to behold. This lady is clearly a virtuoso with amazing writing and compositional skills. For the greater part of the album she plays solo however she is accompanied by drums, electric guitar, violi…view full details.

I haven't encountered the work of Ingram Marshall before but this label's last reissue was Arthur Russell so they have my attention here. On this LP is a shortish piece called 'Fog Tropes' and five longer pieces which make up the lengthy Gradual Requiem suite. 'Fog Tropes' combines field recorded foghorns a…view full details.

Kranky records is usually a pretty strong label. Over the years they've released some very special albums. I saw Stars of The Lid the other night and they blew me away. Bless 'em. Cloudland Canyon are a different proposition for the label. They make more of a krautrock racket you see and the opener 'Krautwerk' is just like Amon Duul. It's all very …view full details.

Don't know why I grabbed the latest transmission from uber-dark noise puppy Dominick Fearn Cotton? NO! His general "furious hamster" demeanour and perpetual exploration of the darker side of life often leaves me feeling fairly bleaked out if I'm of a fragile state of mind, ie. most Autumn mornings.

Matt Cutler (a.k.a Lone) is back with his fifth full length LP. 2012’s ‘Galaxy Garden’ seriously blew me away with it’s technicolour production and lush melodies so there’s been some anticipation in my mind in regard to ‘Reality Testing’.

Hip-hop legend Sage Francis is back with his first album in four years this week, and 'Copper Gone' starts with a rap-metal bang on 'Pressure Cooker', all gang-vocal chorus chants and visceral live guitar and drums. 'Grace' follows it with thoughtful, cinematic introspection and it's clear that Francis's vicious sonic ambition is still smoulde…view full details.

OK I'm almost too hungry to hear but I'll do one more review before I give up and start gnawing at my feet.

The man who runs this label is a local hero I've heard & he still insists on releasing his astute, original musical finds in nice formats like this bag 'o treats. The first singer from this band has a mellow breathy purr to his voice that recalls both Bobby Wratten from The Field Mice & Paddy Mc…view full details.

Gish is a mysterious entity with significant pedigree in the underground experimental music scene. S/He (?) has had a number of releases on Dirty Demos and Krayon and now it's Dead Pilot who have taken up the mantle on 'Billion'. This one is a serious exercise in minimalist sound manipulation and sustained drones. The album begins with a cheeky …view full details.
