Through Broken Summer

It's only a new record from Epic45, my favourite Staffordshire-based post-indie rock band. I can only imagine how beautiful Through Broken Summer will be if their other albums are to go by. You can already hear the calming, yet oddly satisfying sound permeating through your brain, melting your very core. Available on vi...view item »

My Autumn Empire
Oh, Leaking Universe

July Skies/epic45 member Benjamin Holton drops a solo LP under the guise of My Autumn Empire. Anyone who’s copped an earful of previous MAE LPs will be expecting plenty of lush, folky acoustic guitar on Oh, Leaking Universe. They won't be disappointed, but th...view item »


Field Harmonics
Corpsing

Field Harmonics is the solo project of Epic 45's Rob Glover and here he deconstructs the sound he's been building up to on his earlier two electropop influenced LPs. This has led to a new sound more fluid and more abstracted. A deconstructed take on where he was heading. Let's call this a fresh start.  ...view item »

Secrets, Signs and Threats - Collected Recordings

A few words from Epic 45 below about these lovely double sets they've released in conjunction with Japan's Preco imprint, the Reckless Engineers/Against the Pull of Autumn twin set is a really nice thing, twinning the original Canadian release albums bolstered by a handful of strategically placed bonus tracks but even more exciting is the double...view item »

May Your Heart Be The Map

Epic 45: 'May Your Heart Be The Map' (Make Mine Music) Is an endearing collection of songs that are composed to evoke memories of a long lost childhood. This they do by combining an array of acoustic and electric guitars, samplers, drums, bass, field recordings and a collection of assorted tools. At turns pastoral, reflective and nostalgic it remin...view item »

Reckless Engineers

First up we have a delightful new album in by Epic 45. The first song here is tremendous. The best thing I've heard them do. Weighs in like Disco Inferno or 'Silent 88' era Hood. The rest of the album floats along nicely & brings to mind Bark Psychosis, Slowdive, Mogwai, Cocteau Twins and The Workhouse....view item »

Against The Pull Of Autumn

This is the first record I heard by epic45, and the third of their spectacular vinyl rereleases. I bought it based on its cover because I was a 16-year old kid who thought unfocussed landscape pictures were cool. Luckily, Against the Pull of Autumn still has that penchant for nostalgia and direc...view item »

Monument EP

Epic45 are back with a new EP! Well I say new, four of these tracks have been released before a couple of years back on Monoscope and the other two are an ISAN remix and a reworking of the title track featuring Disco Inferno’s Ian Crause, but that’s new enough for me....view item »

Weathered

Well the band that probably keep dear old Auntie Norm afloat more than most is E45 and here is the companion piece to the multi-million shifting and Stewart Lee endorsed Weathering. Like remix albums usually do, this is a collection of friends and fellow musical journeymen reworking various songs from that very album attempting to put a hazy...view item »

Weathering

I was going to try and write this review without shoe-horning the word pastoral in, just as a bit of a challenge. I've given up pretty quickly as you can see. It's like talking about the Second World War and not mentioning Hitler. You can't do it. Oh and I'm reasonably sure Epic 45 and Hitler have no connections before you try and detect one...view item »

Daylight Ghosts/ Any Second Now

Well I wasn't expecting a 7" from these guys - thought they were confined mainly to the digital realm these days. This A-side track appears to be a cool remix of one of the last mini-album highlights and is a sublime journey consisting of wistful vocals, a skittering drum machine, spangled guitars & this euphoric shimmering cosmic synth that...view item »

England Fallen Over

In from Japan are a couple of CD's from Thomason Sounds. The first one is an Epic 45 reissue of their cracking EP England Fallen Over. This features the 5 track EP, a new song called Past Climates, 3 remixes by The Remote Viewer, Random Number and Oppressed By The Line. AND.... there's a video of England Fallen Over on there too. This is one of t...view item »

In All The Empty Houses

Trying to review 'In All The Empty Houses' by Epic 45 is a rather difficult exercise, a band it's awfully hard to categorise. They straddle the divide between tender melancholy pop & chiming, atmospheric post rock, definitely within the realms of the sound universe created by bands such as Disco Inferno, Bark Psychosis & Hood but mo...view item »

Bracken / Bibio remixes

Epic 45 are those cooler than thou post-post-rock chaps who wang an album or EP out occasionally to be consumed rabidly by you, the hungry music vulture. Now they've a limited remix 12" in a variety of sleeves, one for each season of the year. I remember when we used to actually have seasons in this country rather than the schizo mulch of cond...view item »

Drakelow EP

This was a bit of a milestone in the E45 back catalogue as it centred greatly on their instrumental electronica constructing capabilities and much less on the chiming pastoral post-rock they won their fan-base with. I'd say if you like drone, glitch, minimal composition and ambient electronic styles this will...view item »
