9/10 according to our Brian on 26th October 2012

This album is reportedly a favourite of the Boats boys themselves and to be honest I'm not surprised. As an expanded version of a sought-after CDr which kicked off the Our Small Ideas Boats sub-label series, this music is already precious in its origina…view full details.

We have two new releases on the Russian electronica label Sealt this week and this one in particular has really tickled my fancy, the minute the needle hits the groove I’m taken straight back to my hedonistic acid fueled youth, throwing shapes in the psychedelic church of the Megadog circa 1993.

This is the first of several reissues on Mexican Summer of the work of Ashrae Fax. No, me neither, but it turns out they were a pumping synthpop band from the early 2000s when synths were pretty out of vogue and have since been celebrated retrospectively. It&rsqu…view full details.

Friendly ghosts Wand released their last effort on Ty Segall’s God? and did what they were supposed to: swirling around the place in a hi-def psych tornado, they proved themselves to be a worthy band leaning on the heavier side of the garage rock spectrum.

At least three of us here absolutely love this record to bits, It's become much like an old friend in the last couple of months since Lucky Number sent us the promo.
