Soundtrack fiends and library music aficionados, gather round!

I’m mostly familiar with Dave Huismans’ work through his 2562 moniker from a few years ago. My mate Talbot played me a track called ‘Techno Dread’ which was one of the early successful attempts to cross-pollinate the darker, harder edge of dubstep with the essence of pounding techno. It had the hairs on the back of my nec…view full details.

Modern remakes of classic horror films can be a little hit and miss these days, with the advent of computer generated gore in place of real gunge and buckets full of fake blood, it can leave the cinema going public feeling a bit cheated in some ways. That said though, the 2013 reimagining of Sam Raimi’s 1981 zombie fest by Fede Alvarez was…view full details.

It’s been such a long time since Ultravox released a hit, and that song ‘Feed The World’ song Midge did with rugged trampface Geldof, but it’s nice to finally have him back making music. Oh this isn’t Midge Ure? It’s Majeure? That Anthony Pattera fella from …view full details.

Zero messin’ club tools here on Sigha’s label. ‘Ophidian’ is deep an denneling with massive bass, shuffling shakers and driving kicks. The bassline recalls early Regis while all the spacey dubbed effects and drones bring it right into 2013, reminding a bit of …view full details.

Round 2 for A Vision Of Love’s ‘Lesson In Hate’ series, and hopefully not the last. Two cuts here from this shadowy producer which I’m guessing is another handle of Guy Brewer’s (Shifted, Alexander Lewis, Pacific Blue…view full details.

Fuck Buttons’ ‘Slow Focus’ is one of our favourite albums to have graced our shelves this year, and here’s its third-best song on a 12” with exclusive bonus track ‘Royal Flush’ on the other side. ‘Brainfreeze’ is a thumping epic of course, with its casually …view full details.

Here’s the latest product of the current horror soundtrack reissue boom; a deluxe reissue of the score to Wes Craven’s grisly classic ‘The Last House On The Left’, unusually written and performed by the film’s star and the man performing a large portion of the on-screen violence, the late David Alexander Hess. …view full details.

We’ve got another LP in from Cosmic Eye, who recently brought us the rather impressive second album by The Cosmic Dead, so I’m expecting some collector-friendly psychedelic rock, and that’s exactly what I’m getting on this here LP. This lot are an improvised stoner doom troup…view full details.

Ü was an alias of Joel Brindefalk (RIP) who sadly passed away earlier this year. This album was recorded and released back in 1992 and in some ways sounds very much of its time, however considering the current wave lo-fi techno doing the rounds at the moment, the recordings here feel…view full details.

Belgian reed player Joachim Badenhorst has been involved in all sorts of projects over the years (including Baloni and Han Bennink Trio but the list is as long as my telescopic robot arm) and on ‘The Jungle He Told Me’ he’s going it alone for the very first time, offering a series of improvisations for clarinet, bass clarinet a…view full details.

Got three sweet reissues and about an hour to review them in. First two were Group 1850 and Vangelis (both excellent) and this is some bubbly kraut-jazz weirdness from Os Mundi (also excellent) which originally came out on the iconic Brain label in 1972. On it Os Mun…view full details.

Brian kept harping on about that last Grass Widow Mini album which we only got a handful of before it sold out. I finally get to hear them with their new 4 track EP called err... Grass Widow. Firstly it's an expensive one... Only 4 tracks for 12 quid but you can blame the shite pound for that. On my second listen I think I'm starting to se what…view full details.

After playing this a few times it got me wondering who’s behind the music. It’s either an artist that’s quietly been chipping away for a very long time but never been given a break by a label or an established producer working under an alias. I suspect the latter as Spectramorphic Iridescence is a highly accomplished piece of w…view full details.

It's no secret that yours truly's spider sense tingles whenever the words Ancient Methods are uttered. So I'm immediately all over this record on Japanese 10 Label. AM open the EP with the military industrial techno march of Confused Voltage. A steady stomper of a tune that seemingly keeps growing with intensity. Up next is Steven Por…view full details.

Now our Li’l Biz has long sung the praises of big-haired pop culture vulture James Ferraro but she’s busy on the boxes today so it’s up to me, something of a Ferraro novice, to tackle his new one ‘Sushi’. Ferraro is a pla…view full details.

The main track on one side of this album is an absolutely stunning monolithic sculpture of judgement day-style noise. I'm assuming it's by Blue Sabbath Black Cheer. Sorry if it’s not but, like, what are you gonna do, fly over the Atlantic …view full details.
