The Last House on The LeftDavid Alexander Hess
9/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 29th October 2013
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.
Person PitchPanda Bear
9/10 according to our Maggie on 23rd March 2007
With great honor I shall be reviewing the PANDA BEAR album Person Pitch. I simply don't know where to start with this baby. It's the best thing I've heard this year. In my flat this record is always first on the turntable when friends come round. It's like having another friend in the room with you! The rich vocals, so reminiscent of the…view full details.
The Tape Of Vol.2Odd Future
9/10 according to our Li'l Biz on 15th March 2012
It's not easy to just sit down a review an Odd Future album. There's so many MC's, producers and artists in the mix it's hard to absorb in one sitting. It's also possible not to be blown away by the sheer ambition and character present in these productions. It's like The Clan or Native To…view full details.

New work from Erik Carlson of Providence RI is always greeted hear with open ears. For this particular release he's joining the dots between Seefeel, Terry Riley and Steve Reich and in the process has created some engaging, intricate and ultra dreamy audio. Guitar, Organ, drum machine and keyboard were utilized to create these layers of shimmeri…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.
Evil Dead 2013 Original ScoreRoque Banos
9/10 according to our Ian on 15th November 2013
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.
Great Dose of Monotonous TechnoÜ (Joel Brindefalk)
9/10 according to our Ant on 5th July 2013
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.
9/10 according to our Ant on 19th April 2013
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.

9/10 according to our Mike on 15th May 2013
Here’s an exciting record which we probably won’t have on our shelves for very long - it’s a one-sided white label where two very different modern bass music icons meet head-to-head as James Blake mixes Mala’s ‘Changes’ - a mix which appare…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.
9/10 according to our ReviewBot3000 on 2nd October 2013
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.

I tell you I almost shit myself when news of this came to me through the cables. I completely fell in love with Frederick Charles Judd's posthumous 'Electronics Without Tears' record. Public Information have assembled an absolute corker of a line-up to rework the original material…view full details.
43 MinutenOs Mundi
9/10 according to our Mike on 3rd May 2013
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.

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.

We finally scored some copies of this smokin' hot 12" from Norway's Sex Tags Mania bossman DJ Sotofett. The A side 'Happy' is an extended trip of luxurious digi-dub complete with manipulated muttered vocals and some sweet melodica. Somewhere between Rhythm & Sound, Ma…view full details.

Got a shadowy 12” here, not on any label, with just a bright psychedelic design on the sticker instead of information, but I happen to know that it’s APC, aka Aaron from Peaking Lights, with some shiny looped out synthscapes full of bubbling modular loops …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.
9/10 according to our Ant on 21st December 2012
A much needed CD issue of this trilogy, previously only available on vinyl direct from the label and now somewhat collectable. The audio has been remastered especially for the digital version. To be perfectly honest the vinyl pressings sound like shit. The best move would be to save yourself some dosh and get the audio sounding clean and c…view full details.

Well I was hoping for a Wikipedia entry on this most celebrated of underground Belgian synth-wave artists but there isn't one.

This is possibly the strangest multi-media package we’ve ever had in by anyone. On a baffling array of formats, you also have a difficult choice to make with two different styles of headphones on offer so you can really dig the “sonic stylings” as these two legendary mad old b…view full details.
