We say: Much anticipated fourth from electronic entertainer.

Andy Stott
Too Many Voices

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

8/10 according to our Laurie

It’s the man Andy Stott making that electronic music thing again. Music from another planet, robots, the future, an alternate universe, or just Garageband. In a world of drag-and-drop loops, who stands against the forces of awful music, to live another day in audible paradise? I don’t know if Andy Stott is the messiah of electronic music, but he certainly knows how to wrench…view full details.

DJ Qu

Deep house artist DJ Qu releases his well-loved and pretty off-kilter tune 'Party People Clap' on a good-looking 12", so you can hear his bass and hand-claps fight on wax. He's joined by some admiring friends who offer up their remix game: first Levon Vincent and his brand of minimal house, followed by Anthony Parasole & Fred P and DJ Jus Ed.…view full details.

If you can get over the voice of the lead vocalist, it's a lot easier to enjoy this album.

Power, Corruption & Lies is the true birth of the New Order that influenced and enraptured many throughout the eighties and still holds dominion today - in fact it's rather astonishing how fresh, relevant and utterly satisfying this three decades old music still is. New Order named their debut album 'Movement', as if to anno…view full details.

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

Their 'classic' breakthrough record. Whereas before they'd hinted at pop classicism amongst the housey electronics, here they penned a gorgeous love letter (ha!) to their homeland. The faux naive pop moves are on show throughout, opener (sort of) 'We Broke Free' is an absolute stunner. More consistent and smooth that the quirky 'Love Letters' it never quite reaches the dizzy heights but still deserves to be seen as one of the best records of the last few years.     …view full details.

This has got to be one of the most exciting developments in the unfolding Death Waltz saga so far - reissues of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth’s scores to his excellent Halloween sequels.

I remember the first time I heard this album as clearly as it was yesterday.

Death Waltz continue to find soundtracks worthy of reissue in their rampage through the horror vaults, and this one here has to be among their most iconic yet.

JAGJAGUWAR & Death Waltz Recording Company release the soundtrack to Panos Cosmatos' BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW. Posited as a "lost film" of the 1980s, the film is inspired by classic dystopian fiction and the obscure SF movies you used to see on the shelves of the local video store when you were a kid. The soundtrack by Sinoia Caves - aka composer Jeremy Schmidt - blends seamlessly amongst its influences of Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlos, and of course John Carpe…view full details.

Running Out Of Time was the only album to be recorded by British leftfield pop duo, Rexy. It was originally released in 1981 and has long since been out of print. Rexy were fashion student Rex Nayman and Vic Martin, who had played with Eurythmics.

This is Van Morrison's best album by some margin. "Moondance" which followed had a handful of good songs on, but this is a complete album that takes you somewhere and gets you lost in it's world. The songs were written by Morrison on the guitar and taught to the assmbled musicians but they were given no real direction, just told to play by…view full details.

The Boy Whose Head Exploded is a document of the live sound of The Pop Group at the time of their For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? Peak.

Kerrier District is one of many aliases used by Luke Vibert: it may in fact be one of his best. The Kerrier District 1 album was first released (on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label) in 2004, but its wobbly, highly-colourful disco groove-bounce sounds just as fun and fantastic today on this reissue. This 3LP / 2CD release also adds in the 2 EP, so not shortage of content here. On Hypercolour.…view full details.

My Morning Jacket occupy that musical space inside your brain you know is there, but just aren't sure how to access.

Les Demons is an excellent example of the sexually explicit 1970’s nunsploitation B-movie genre, featuring plenty of lewd nudeness and blasphemy, all with that special 70’s sheen. Naturally such a film has a seedy-groovy soundtrack to match, provided by Jean-Bernard Raiteux. A bit porny, a bit spooky, and quite a bit weird, this is a quality soundtrack oddity.

8/10 according to our Mike

This is pretty interesting. Dark Dark Dark play piano-led chamber folk with predominantly girl vocals. It's dark-tinged but not as downbeat as their name would have you believe. More brooding than maudlin, I want to compare them to The National but there's a sense of wonder here that I don't get from that band. Similar kind of shuffling propulsiveness from the drums, though.

The Nilster is back with a brand new studio new album on Erased Tapes and it's the difficult 3rd album! From the off I can tell it's a much richer album than previous albums as there's more than just piano on it. The opener with its Tubular Bellsy xylophone is really rather splendid.

The neo-classical album I'm most fond of is this Max Richter LP on Fat Cat. He's a composer chappie who's had stuff out on BBC Recordings before so I'm told and this is just lush.
