Zo Rèl Do
Mohammad

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

9/10 according to our Jim on 3rd June 2014

Greek ‘chamber doom’ trio Mohammad seem to have hit onto something special. Using double bass, cello and oscillators, they produce a stark, rasping, grunting sound to rattle your skull and resonate deep down in the pit of your gut. Like some austere, contemplative dirge music played in a remote, post-apocalyptic monastic community, t…view full details.

Come On Die Young
Mogwai

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

8/10 according to our Brian on 18th July 2014

To many, CODY represents Mogwai's most successful long-playing attempt at a "classic". Others cite 'Rock Action' as their masterpiece. I am a bit of a cynical twat however and refuse to acknowledge that this long-running Glasgow bunch have ever quite reached those dizzying heights on record. Every album they've done has had me staring at my watc…view full details.

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

9/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 18th July 2014

Here's another one from HoZac's reissue series and it's only the Electric fucking Eels. This lot, in case you haven't come across them before, made snotty and gnarled post-Stooges proto-punk way back in '74/'75. Both these songs were recorded in 1975 and both follow the formula of ferocious everything-in-the-red p…view full details.

Having already wowed my ears with a welcome Electric Eels reissue, good ol' HoZac come up with the goods again this week with this LP from dirgey post-hardcore punkers Nones. These guys are notable for the fact that their singer plays the saxophone and they're good at concise but funny s…view full details.

Hunger
Dan Melchior und das Menace

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 18th July 2014

Dan Melchior is back...kind of. 'Hunger' is a collection of unreleased recordings recorded between 2008 and 2011, but don't worry, it's way too good to just be dismissed as an odds and sods anthology. Melchior's brand of unpredictable and often anarchic experimental pop is a hard one to describe because he flits around between genres so much, …view full details.

Here's a lovely mysterious CD on SPEKK from minimal supergroup Piiptsjilling, who feature two Kleefstra brothers and Rutger "Machinefabriek" Zuydervelt as well as someone I'm not familiar with, Mariska Baars. 'Molkedrippen' is their second album, a seven-piece suite of improvisations for guitar, vocals and …view full details.

Here's the second compilation from Hyperdub this year to celebrate their 10th birthday, and it only takes a quick glance at the press release to see why they've been dominating the post-dubstep landscape over the past five years as we focus on the second half of the label's inaugural decade.

9/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 18th July 2014

I'm kicking off a heavy Friday's reviewing with the latest offering from Tim "White Fence" Presley. The lo-fi psych-popster has been hinting at more and more accessible things on his last couple of LPs, the excellent 'Cyclops Reap' and 'Pink Gorilla', and that's pushed sharply to the fore here as he enters a proper studio with his buddy …view full details.

9/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 18th July 2014

Cool little three song 7" here from noisy punk types Running. I'm enjoying it, it's kind of like Scratch Acid fighting Pissed Jeans in a giant mud pit. The guitar, bass and drums are all tightly locked in, churning out pacey knuckle-dragging riffs while the singer yelps and …view full details.

8/10 according to our Brian on 18th July 2014

A really nice CD here from Russian duo Daydreamer, titled in tribute to our favourite French writer, thinker (and erstwhile goalie). I'd like to say he was an existentialist but he would have vigorously denied such a thing. Is this an existentialist album? No. It's certainly an excellent collection of thoughtful cinematic ambience, tentative pos…view full details.

8/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 18th July 2014

Having been a little disappointed at the lack of pop tunes on the new Holly Herndon offering, I now turn to a band who I'm confident will deliver on that front. The Raveonettes have been plugging away for years honing their darkpop/shoegaze aesthetic, and interestingly on 'Pe'ahi' they combine this with some surfpop and tropicalia elements to …view full details.

8/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 18th July 2014

Got an LP of drones here from San Diego's Alex Cobb, two on each side of this LP. This guy likes to take things very, very slow. That's why they call them drones. To start with we've got 'Famosa' which is a slightly cacophonous and organic sounding orchestra-tuning-up type drone, leading in to the very different 'Rain at the Fete' with its syn…view full details.

Brooklyn's Sarah "Noveller" Lipstate and Montreal's Eric "Thisquietarmy" Quach join forces here for a long-player containing four meditative duets. The two guitarists' style seems almost tailor-made for a collaboration such as this, since both of them specialise in slow-oozing drone'n'tone compositions which mix a shimmering angelic lightness …view full details.

Demolition Plot J-7 showcases a premature version of the band who would be Pavement, comprised of Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg on whatever instruments they feel like, both making different rackets in the same room. Glancing over the liner notes, which read like a discombobulated Malkmusian lyric sheet, it’s obvious the duo b…view full details.

Xpressway was an amazing tape label run by The Dead C's Bruce Russell which survived through the early part of the 90's releasing a hotch-potch of out-there music from Dunedin and the surrounding areas.

The office post-it goblin has been up to his usual business on this Mumpbeak CD. "Interesting proggy instrumentals, King Crimson-ish", he says. He's right, this is a CD of instrumental prog, complex and psychedelic stuff with a very obvious debt to the aforementioned Crimmo but also plays around with complex …view full details.

Norwegian noise-rock dynamos Noxagt drop album number four this week. 'Brutage' is kicking my face in this morning.

Death Waltz continue to find soundtracks worthy of reissue in their rampage through the horror vaults, and this one here has to be among their most iconic yet.

With a name like LA Hell Gang you might expect this to be ferocious riff-laden testosterock but actually 'Thru Me Again' is a slow drifting biker psych excursion full of slow, hazy grooves to soundtrack your smoky summer.
