Elektron Kukeso
Hans Edler

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

9/10 according to our Mike on 1st August 2014

When I think of the electronic avant garde from the late '60s and early '70s I tend to think of dry, studious and methodical sound experiments and impenetrable tuneless noise games. However this freshly reissued LP by Hans Edler turns that on its head by mixing that hard-nosed experimentalism with a naive and charming tunefulness. I really like …view full details.

Moving Along
Batsumi

9/10 according to our Mike on 1st August 2014

Here's another Batsumi reissue from Matsuli, this time their second (and final) album 'Moving Along', continuing their enduring forays into refreshing spiritual jazz and energetic Afro-funk full of subtle polyrhythms (as with the first album there's a mixture of hand drums and drumkit as favoured by modern-day hype masters …view full details.

Planet of Man
Code III

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

9/10 according to our Brian on 1st August 2014

The back story behind this is quite interesting. Formed as a vehicle to experiment with their new "dummy head" binaural recording system by the brothers Schunke, This strange and spooky audio emission from the newly formed (and Klaus Schulze-assisted) Delta Acustic studios is one for all lovers of true cosmic weirdness. How could a German record…view full details.

8/10 according to our Brian on 1st August 2014

Of the 90 minutes and 22 tracks on this cassette I have heard less than four minutes of it on Soundcloud. Was I naively led to believe there were wee clips for all the tracks available digitally? Maybe so. Alas this is not to be. So basically we have one very enigmatic transmission here that I have to briefly unravel the mysteries of through the…view full details.

Bonton EP Part 2
Roberto Clementi

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Souki on 1st August 2014

And suddenly there he is, slithering out of the night unexpectedly like an unknown creature emerging from the storm drain; Roberto Clementi with a second instalment of his starkly-rendered Bonton series.  As is to be expected there are no radical departures in sound here and the format is identical: two stone-cold dusty dub tech cuts fresh …view full details.

Strawberry Rain already reissued Kelompok Kampungan's 'Mencari Tuhan' on CD, as well as an LP containing five of its nine tracks, and now they round things off by dropping the remaining four numbers on this limited 10". I hadn't encountered this lot before but they're a progressive folk crew from Indonesia and as far as I can tell this w…view full details.

The Lost Tapes
Vic Pitts & The Cheaters

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

9/10 according to our Mike on 1st August 2014

Vic Pitts & the Cheaters were Milwaukee's leading R&B act in the tail end of the '60s, even getting their own TV show between '69 and '72 where they performed musical numbers, skits and interviews in order to encourage kids to stay in school. In 1969 they recorded an album which never saw the light of day, which is unearthed this week by…view full details.

New on Stones Throw, one of the few labels that I’d get out of bed for in the morning. This is a collection of some of the best bits from Jonwayne’s cassette releases now on vinyl. Check the title  - its easy when you know how. Its nice to know that out of the 4 records I’ve selected for myself there is one I genui…view full details.

When will Domino sign someone good I hear you cry! Don't worry - there’s time yet. Let's see what Bob Moses are all about. Well as you might expect from how things work these days its a band not a person, they are Canadian and they live in Brooklyn, New York of all places. Just imagine!

7/10 according to our Clinton on 1st August 2014

The opening few bars of this collaboration between one of Modest Mouse and....um....some other bloke sounds remarkably like electronica duo Remote Viewer or any number of late 90’s/early 2000’s two pieces. It then bursts into life with some bouncing beatery and du…view full details.

Whilst on holiday and taking a morning coffee in Berwick-on Tweed's branch of Cafe Nero, I came to a realisation. Perhaps.....just perhaps I don’t actually like music all that much. Its a terrifying thought, particularly as I’ve devoted most of my life to it. One to ponder I reckon. I certainly have no enthusiasm for man…view full details.

Futurehead Dave Hyde and Golden Virgin Neil Bassett join forces here as Hyde & Beast for a quite timeless-sounding album of bold arranged pop with elements of CSNY and Supertramp as well as more than a nod to the psych-pop of people like The Be…view full details.

This is really nice. I'm making a very gentle start today in the company of A Model Kit, aka Russia's Maxim Popov. He's got this ridiculously limited CD out this week in the world's glossiest digipak. I can see my face in it! There's a little booklet of mysterious art printed on thick textured card too.

8/10 according to our Mike on 1st August 2014

Here's an interesting single. You get a download of five songs, a flexi featuring one of those songs, and a 24-page zine with photos of the band, lyrics and chord patterns and thoughts about all the songs. I'm not going to use your download code so I'm just listening to the song on the flexi, 'Mirage'. It's nice stuff, laid back baggy-ga…view full details.

Soul Mates
Grant Nicholas

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

7/10 according to our Mike on 1st August 2014

There's no mention in the press release of Grant Nicholas's former band, perhaps a sign that he's trying to step away from his power-pop beginnings and move into a more mature sound. I know who he is though because they were the soundtrack to my Britrocking early teens. Indeed on 'Soul Mates' the former Feeder fron…view full details.

Here's a rather anonymous-looking 7" with Marissa Nadler and Father John Misty covering each other's songs. There's no text on the sleeve or the disc so good luck remembering what it is when you find it in a pile of records next year. On side A we've got Nadler …view full details.

9/10 according to our Mike on 1st August 2014

Madrid duo Deers burst onto the scene this week with this 'Demo' 7", featuring two impeccably crafted garage pop gems. On side A there's 'Bamboo', a jangly and slightly twee number with really natural and relaxed interplay between the two vocalists driven along by shuffling drums and strummy guitar. It's really laid back and summery, slightly …view full details.

This single here's by mysterious next-big-things 18+, and it's a cool bit of woozy minimal trap-hop business. On side A you've got 'Crow', which slinks along delicately with a coolly seductive beat constructed from bass pulses, fingersnaps and samples of the eponymous crow propelling an echoing synth loop and eerily mumbled singing from a girl a…view full details.

Here's a 7" from post-punky Belgian shoepop/dreamgaze outfit Newmoon, who play a very well observed take on the genre. On the A side we've got 'Invitation to Hold', which starts slow and tentative before stomping into a driving groove full of MBV-esque wall-of-wibble guitars and daydreamy Slowdive pacing. The vocal…view full details.

Stereolab

6/10 according to our Phil on 28th January 2007

The new Stereolab LP is in and it's called Sound Dust. After extensive playing (about 6-7 times, cos I really wanted to like this) I can confirm that it's decidedly average. The single was a cracker, but they could do better I reckon. Opens nicely with the 1st track and stays pretty good but about half way …view full details.
