The Voice Of Silence
Peter Michael Hamel

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

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

Today's big pile of reissues brings me to Peter Michael Hamel's 'The Voice of Silence' from 1973. Hamel was a man very actively concerned with the meditative and therapeutic properties of music, founding the Freies Musikzentrum institute for musical education and therapy a few years later. On side-long opener 'Panta Tantra' he pieces tog…view full details.

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

Anthony Pasquarosa of Aerosols, SQRM and Frozen Corn goes it alone here as World Domination, with an album which to this reviewer's ears and eyes seems to be inspired by the unhinged noise punk and line drawings of Rudim…view full details.

The Power of The Picts
Writing On The Wall

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

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

I continue my trawl through this week's reissues with this forgotten bit of hard rock from 1969. There's a picture of five hairy nerds on the back cover and the music on the album is full of energetic Hammond organ and big chugging electric guitar riffs with psychedelic vocal harmonies and a self-assured proggy feel that brings to mind …view full details.

Planet of Man
Code III

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

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.

Elektron Kukeso
Hans Edler

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

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.

Demo
Deers

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

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.

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.

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

As I said last week with the SM Corps 12", somebody out there is preparing the re-release of some cult obscurity or super-rare lost classic every day. Considering how old this tune is it still completely tears your face off in absolutely every way. Essentially an absolutely gorgeous and euphoric Balearic electro/di…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.

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.

18+

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

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

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 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.

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.

Basically one of the hottest underground producers out there at the moment, Huerco S builds really trippy, expansive and daringly experimental back-room house. There's four tracks on this sixth release on Anthony Naples' gradually evolving Proibito imprint.

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.

Here's a lovely tape from Padang Food Tigers that was originally part of an 11-tape collection on Bathetic but now gets a solo release. This lot have an airy and sometimes disjointed Americana-ambient approach featuring field recordings, fret squeaks and gentle twangs and plinks that fall in and out of shape in a mysterious but measured way.…view full details.
