Saturn and the Sun
In Love With The Extreme

Now that The Skull Defekts no longer exists, Joachim Nordwall and Henrik Rylander have had to find other ways to fill their days and satisfy their creative impulses. In Love With The Extreme is by the pair's Saturn And The Sun project on which they take a visceral approach to minimal electronic music.

Daniel Higgs
The Fools Sermon, part 1

Former Lungfish man Daniel Higgs does not mislead when he promises a Fools Sermon: he does indeed deliver his twisted version of a new age religious sermon, carefully intoning each word as though tasting them as they leave his mouth. In the background are creeping desert-like instrumentals: quite the listen! The Fools Sermon, part 1 is out on Stephen O’Malley’s Ideologic Organ.

The Skull Defekts
The Skull Defekts

This is the final album from experimental Swedes the Skull Defekts. They are known for somehow melding raucous punk with ritualistic psychedelic folk creating an overwhelming barrage of sound. Someone from, Wildbirds and Peacedrums has joined for this swansong which should see them go out with a bang. 

High Boys
World Numbination EP

You might know Joachim Nordwall and Jean-Louis Huhta from their work in the intense experimental group Skull Defekts, but their first project as a duo, High Boys, moves in very different territory. World Numbination is a four track power-pack of acidic electro-acoustic techno, ready to wreck the more experimental dancefloors out there. Yummy. 12” EP on Hoga Nord.

Saturn and the Sun
Focus On the Centre Of Your Skull

Focus On The Centre Of Your Skull by Saturn and the Sun is a visceral yet mind altering mix of psychedelic electronics, ‘80s industrial music, minimal techno and dub. Claims that this will leave your brain in tatters are probably not far from the truth. Recorded directly to tape then pressed to vinyl.

Ryan Martin & Joachim Nordwall
Trance Below The Streets

The title Trance Below The Streets presumably refers to the state of mind that these two deep synth-heads fell into while recording the record in a chilly basement. Ryan Martin and Joachim Nordwall weave their tender electronic patterns around one another, forming beautiful crystalline sculptures. 300 LP copies on iDEAL.

The Skull Defekts
Street Metal

Damaged tribal distortions from The Skull Defekts. Street Metal puts fourth some cranial punishment combining deep anxious percussion with deranged guitars and unhinged synths. This is what happens when you're left alone in the dark with a tabla, a guitar, an Ian Curtis' biography and a converge album. Out on vinyl LP from Diagnol.

The Skull Defekts
Dances In Dreams Of The Known And Unknown

A call to arms from The Skull Defekts. Dances In Dreams Of The Known And Unknown is a dense nine tracker from the Swedes. Blending the mediums of punk and metal with scandinavian folkloric tribalism to make a record of total darkness. They mush distorted guitars, warmongering drums and melodic spoken word with sinister electronics. Out on CD from Thrill Jockey.
