Paper Leaves

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

The Terrascope label celebrate their anniversary the way every label should: with a compilation full of new material from their favourite artists. Paper Leaves includes work from Bardo Pond, White Hills, Ben Chasny and Dead Sea Apes: all the ingredients for a heavy psychedelic ride. Limited vinyl edition of 200 copies.…view full details.

Pete Um
The New Album

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

9/10 according to our Brian

There’s not many British eccentrics as wonderful and awe-inspiringly mad as our Pete Um. His scattershot irreverent prose, weirdo-raps and surrealist sound-sculptures are pretty distinctive, I feel, and have a place in the marginal DIY art performance world inhabited by …view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Sleep Games

35 people love me. Be the 36th...

9/10 according to our Brian

A fresh selection of dilapidated sloth-techno and decaying witching-hour electronica from this new master of home-brewed analogue doom. His wonderful eerie sounds come replete with an austere yet comfortingly nostalgic outlook that no-one until now has quite done this way. The first track makes me think of the Dutch techno underground - it has a sort of melancholic Eurodisco electro strut…view full details.

Brooks and O'Hagan
Other Voices 01

15 people love me. Be the 16th...

8/10 according to our Brian

This single is a gem. I enjoyed many instalments in the last series of collectible GB sevens but on none of them did the two idiosyncratic aural worlds of any of the collaborators gel in such a perfectly balanced fashion than on this two-faced dinky treat. This really is Advisory Circle meets High Llamas in both spirit …view full details.

Vatican Shadow
Death Is Unity With God

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Ant

Those of you that have been crying yourselves to sleep, because you missed out on the ‘Death Is Unity With God’ 6x cassette set on Hospital productions -- because somebody bought it to sell on Discogs at twice the price -- can now rejoice and throw the mp3s in the bin.... Or perhaps not. Modern Love have reduced the load by trimming the original tracklist down from 20 to 12.…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Other Voices 05

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

On the thickest vinyl you’ve ever seen in your life comes the latest missive from Our Head Technician aka Martin Jenkins aka Pye Corner Audio. On the A side you get a blast of krauty electronica with a nice four note fluttering bass motif, some seriously wailing siren sounds and massive Depeche Mode-like synth picking out an uber early ‘80…view full details.

Rafael Anton Irisarri
A Fragile Geography

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

7/10 according to our Jim

Lawrence English’s Brisbane-based Room40 label continues into its fifteenth year with a flurry of releases. This latest LP from the US ambienteer, Rafael Anton Irisarri, churns up dense, atmosphere-heavy slabs of elegiac melancholia that will appeal to fans of William Basinski, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and most of…view full details.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
Other Voices 06

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Robin

Tim Gane’s back at work here, the ex-Stereolab chemist now joining forces with spook university Ghost Box for one in their series of 7”s. The result of a Real Estate-inspired instrumental on inevitable collision course with beams of synth that sound as grand as an old, room-filling moog synth, “Pulsing River Vel…view full details.

ToiToiToi
Other Voices 07

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Robin

No ghosts haunt ToiToiToi’s latest 7”, but with their hands over their mouths and their toy instruments set up in the far end of the room, you might wonder just how corporeal they actually are. This old-school, Kraut-grooved pop treat has its melodies muffled and its production obscured, letting some parts diverge from the other to give you the feel of being the centrepiece in a wei…view full details.

Belbury Poly
Farmers Angle (Revised Edition)

27 people love me. Be the 28th...

9/10 according to our Brian

Just looked for more info on this & found that the original of Farmer's Angle was a 4 track 3" CDr and also the first ever Ghost Box release to boot. They started small & now they're big, like a hot dog chomping sofa surfing buffoon lounging around in the American midwest. Except much more appealing obviously. Now 6 tracks long - one of them 'Cold Air' has been substituted for a new Adv…view full details.

Felicia Atkinson
Visions/ Voices

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

9/10 according to our ReviewBot300

Here’s a new 2LP from Umor Rex, whose S ND Y P RL RS LP was a surprise highlight of last year. They’ve been kind enough to send us a handful of copies of the green vinyl edition, too, which has been pressed in an edition of just 150 (which we're sold out of now so only black vinyl is av…view full details.

Kreng
Grimoire

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

A slow and steady burner from Kreng. Grimoire is the new full length from the Belgian spine chiller. This one is a spooky as they come, mixing ominous strings, brooding horns and some operatic vocals with subtle but punishing electronics and seamless production. Ambience meets avant-soundtrack. Pick it up on vinyl LP from Miasmah.…view full details.

Consumer Electronics
Repetition Reinforcement

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

Russell Haswell returns to Diagonal and this time he’s brought his pals -- the notorious Consumer Electronics - Ex- Whitehouse gob Philip Best’s long running project which since 1982 has featured the likes of …view full details.

Felicia Atkinson
A Readymade Ceremony

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie

The cover art for A Readymade Ceremony, the latest audible meditation from the primarily visual artist Felicia Atkinson, contains a screengrab of her macbook. This fragment is surrounded by snatches of conversations between a few folks and some distortion, and a solitary capitalised “HOUSE.” The distortion says “I’m gonna break you into pieces”, then stick…view full details.

Ford Proco / Coil
Expansion Naranja

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

8/10 according to our Laurie

Some exhumed Coil material here, a 1999 collab with Mexican band Ford Proco. I can hear the pricking of a thousand rabid fans’ ears. This lot met at an Orb gig in LA if that matters at all, and were spurred on to make some tunes together. A lovely tale. Phil says correctly that the beat kinda sounds like …view full details.

Manyfingers
The Spectacular Nowhere

17 people love me. Be the 18th...

9/10 according to our Clinton

Manyfingers is the nom de plume of Chris Cole who has a history of playing in some of the finest bands Bristol has produced. Search the internet carefully and you’ll see him eating an ice cream with Movietone whilst he has also played in the live band of Matt Elliott’s Third Eye…view full details.

Fatima Yamaha
What's A Girl To Do

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

8/10 according to our Laurie

Not really sure why this needs listening to again, or even reviewing, because the titular tune is too catchy to remain here. Once you hear it, it cannot be unheard. What begins with some light field recordings is joined by a simple driving beat and some yearning, soft synth shapes before THAT melody enters. A voice quietly utters “I just dunno what I’m supposed to be, y’know. …view full details.

Gigi Masin
Wind

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Gigi Masin’s private press LP Wind gets a proper issuing thanks to The Bear On The Moon. Masin’s ambient songs drift on a bed of synths, in a way that plenty of obscurity-hunters have fallen for over the years. You could let it colour your room, or you could follow his songcraft: your choice. This reissue is remastered from the original tapes.…view full details.

Michal Turtle
Are You Psychic? / Astral Decoy

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to Andy (customer) on

This is a beautiful two tracker, well worth investing in. Leading with 'Are You Psychic' on the a side you get a just under 13 minute journey of gentle drumming, synths and a ghostly vocal intoning the title. Midway through a lovely bass kicks in taking the track into deeper hypnotic territory, don't get too comfortable though as Mr Turtle starts throwing in some squealing synths taking the track into a darker zone. This isn't Squarepusher type aural violenc…view full details.

CP / BW (Corporate Park and Beau Wanzer)
Untitled

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Duo Shane English and Jonah Lange make music together as Corporate Park. Here they have collaborated with Beau Wanzer as CP/BW. Untitled is collection of their recordings from sessions in Denton, Texas over the last three years. The influences come from all angles to display their unashamedly off-kilter approach to electronic music.…view full details.

Nico Fidenco
Zombi Holocaust - Mannequin Edition

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Zombie Holocaust is a title that tells you everything you could possibly need to know about the film doesn’t it? If you follow 70’s Italian B-movie culture, you’ll also be able to guess at the soundtrack: Nico Fidenco has spun together orchestral, vocal, acoustic and synth sounds into a dramatic frenzy. With a dancey remix by Alessandro Adriani on the B-side.…view full details.

Tale Of Us
North Star / Silent Space

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Tale of Us are Berlin-based electronic duo Carmine Conti and Matteo Milleri. North Star/Silent Space is their new double A sided single on R&S records. Perfectionists to a fault, the pair have trashed a huge number of tracks in their search to find the perfect beat. Pulsating and squalling sounds with shards of synth show Tale of Us to be among the finest purveyors of cinematic club music. …view full details.

Syracuse
Liquid Silver Dream

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

French electro-pop. That term may either have you immediately buying your Eurostar tickets for the next train to Paris or reaching for the epipen and the insulin to counter the sugar overload. But Liquid Silver Dream by Syracuse is bitter-sweet. It’s moody electronics with sultry vocals and a crystalised feel as the synths glow and the percussion chimes. Worth a listen for its bizarre approach and general fun.    …view full details.

Theo Parrish
I Can Take It / Sawala Sayale

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Always-excellent producer Theo Parrish presents his own take on Matthew Recloose Chicoine’s tune I Can Take It, featuring vocals from Dwele. Both this track and the B-side’s Sawala Sayale are slowly-growing, smoothly-grooving slices of quality business. Originally released in 2001, this 2015 12” re-pressing is out on Sound Signature.…view full details.

Shazam
Memories

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

A super-rare slice of minimal synth coldness, reissued at last on 12” vinyl. Unlike almost every other piece of notable synth-pop, Memories was recorded in Penzance, Cornwall, where a concrete bunker helped provide that drum sound. Shazam have all the trappings of a great 1983-era synth-wave gang, so get stuck in to this reissue on Mannequin.…view full details.

9/10 according to our Clinton

There just aren’t enough people with curly hair these days so good on Metronomy main-man Joseph Mount for battling ahead and sticking one in the eye of the straight hairs. I had no idea of his potential hair handicap when a rollocking Northern Soul tune came on the wireless the other day. I hurtled into the kitchen like a whip to find out that it wasn’t some old Motown cast …view full details.

The Album Paranoia

9/10 according to our Robin

It’s a brave new world we live in when I’m reviewing a record off of an NME stream, but here we are -- I’m pretty sure Chris Moyles orchestrated this in collaboration with Windows 10. Ulrika Spacek are sugar free psychedelic merchants from London, and if their upcoming tour with Sunflower Bean isn’t enough of a clue, here’s the …view full details.

Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Arc

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Brand new EP from Agoraphobic Nosebleed, extreme metal / grindcore veterans. I wouldn’t say they’ve relaxed over time, as these are still ferocious, emotionally-desolate tracks. But the songs / minutes ratio is down to 3 / 25, as opposed to 100 / 21 a decade ago. Arc is released on Relapse.…view full details.

Talvihorros
Discordia

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

We don’t usually encounter ambient drone electronics in a format as cut down as a 7”: usually these things expand over 20 minutes or more. So it is welcome to find Scottish producer Talvihorros squeezing his sonic drift into two concise pieces for Discordia, each cycling through the requisite elements with perfect timing. 7” on the JAZ Records imprint.…view full details.

David Bowie
The Next Day

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

6/10 according to our Clinton

Aiming for comeback of the year before he was usurped by My Bloody Valentine, David Bowie delivers his first album in what...like...a million years and you have to hand it to him, the silence has paid dividends. Had he been releasing albums and touring over the past 10 years no-one would really care about …view full details.

Thee Oh Sees
Help

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

9/10 according to our Li'l Biz

Thee Oh Sees began life humbly enough as an outlet for Jon Dwyer (Pink and Brown, Coachwhips, Burmese, Hospitals to name but a few) to make folksy, experimental home spun recordings under the guise of O.C.S (Orange County Sound) and has, over the course of time, evolved into a full on quality band. Accompanied by guitarist Petey Dammit, drummer Mike Shoun and vocalist Brigid Dawson, Dwyer has foun…view full details.

It's getting to be a bit tense in the office these days, for when a new Thee Oh Sees record comes in there's more than half of us clamouring to review it.

9/10 according to Evan (customer) on

Jeepers! The song in the video section above is INTENSE! The only instrumentation is screechy cello and violin and a really terrifying vocal, really proper scary and slowly getting more threatening as it builds without ever properly building, it's just the pure tension and horror which drags you into it. Really creepy and thrilling and odd and proper interesting stuff. That's the warm welcome you get into this lp from the mysterious Skogsberg whose pictu…view full details.

Who is the best Terry? Wogan? Nutkins? Well here's another one to add to the list. These are people out of Total Control making ridiculously catchy indie-pop that sounds very much like the early Go-Betweens. On opener 'Talk About Terry' guitars re-define the word 'spindly' as the entire band sing over the top. This is a…view full details.

Recondite
Placid

8/10 according to our Clinton

Winter is a coming and the world is getting bleaker. It’s the perfect time then for a new release by Recondite. The German producer excels is frosty soundscapes that capture a particular downtrodden mood of monochrome indifference. His sound is techno (I guess) with heavy acid influences yet it is slow and carefully constructed. These pedestrian bpms lead to perfect electronic music for…view full details.

Though they’ve occasionally jumped on an unexpected indie pop label for the fun of it, Wolf Eyes have retained a largely DIY approach to both music and its distribution. On paper, who gives a shit, but these guys have made about ten thousand more albums than Buckethead, so one has to give them credit -- I assume they’ve never left their garage of cracked cassette cases and torn enve…view full details.

Despite Newcombe’s absence, this records isn’t that different from Tess Park's collaborative efforts. It’s full of slow druggy melodies and hazy Mazzy Star-like vocal melodies. It makes me want to be somewhere slow in Los Angeles. No wonder Newcombe picked up on this as it’s like a narcotic cousin to his …view full details.

Deux Filles is a project undertaken by soundtrack composer Simon Fisher Turner and Colin Lloyd-Tucker, posing as two French girls.

Songs For Walter is a new project from Laurie Hulme (Beat The Radar). The idea is that he writes from the perspective of Walter, his late grandfather. Consequently, these indie-troubadour tunes are highly intimate experiences. Both CD and (clear) vinyl editions are packaged along with unique polaroids from the family’s actual photo collection. On Akoustik Anarkhy.…view full details.

Rowland S. Howard will be most familiar to you via his time spent in Nick Cave’s original wildmen The Birthday Party.

Prolific Californian noisemakers Thee Oh Sees are back and thankfully sounding louder than ever: 2014’s ‘Drop’ was a comparatively mellow and varied offering following John Dwyer’s move from San Francisco to LA and his intention to take a “well deserved break”, making fans wonder if the days of heavy psych and skewed rhythmic churning were over.

Hip-Hop is a scene that died (commercially, at least) around the mid 00's - where some of the industry's most talented artists were relegated to featuring on mainstream pop tracks, playing the role of redundant hype-men (Redman featured on Christina's 'Dirrrty' don't forget) or drafted in to play mindless catch-phrase monkeys (Lil' Wayne has featured on more top 20 hits in the UK than ANY other black man).
