Things We Lost In The Fire

25 people love me. Be the 26th...

9/10 according to our Phil on 29th January 2007

The new Low LP needs that new word to describe it once again. Absoultely marveltastic it is. Glory be the new Low LP for it has to come to save us from mediocrity and lameness. Lush beautiful songs that make you want to hang yourself and jump for joy at the same time. Confusing emotions I know …view full details.

Nils Frahm
Felt

25 people love me. Be the 26th...

9/10 according to our Phil on 6th October 2011

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. There's a…view full details.

Fort Romeau

8/10 according to our Mike on 21st March 2012

I'm not sure I've heard anything on the excellent 100% Silk imprint from a British artist before, but here's London's Mike Norris, aka Fort Romeau, with a mini-album of drifty techno driven by crisp beats and washes of reverbinated vocals. Geography aside, though, this release is very much…view full details.

Future Islands

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

6/10 according to our Mike on 26th October 2012

Future Islands are a band I have a lot of time for. Their album ‘In Evening Air’ from a couple of years ago barely left my record player for weeks. They peddle a sort of theatrical synthpop, a difficult style to pull off well, but t…view full details.

I've been hoovering up this guy’s releases since he emerged on the Russian Torrent Versions label in 2013. His stuff seems to stand out amongst the onslaught of techno releases simply because it’s pretty darn weird. This his debut album is a revelation as it collects archive tracks whi…view full details.

12" EP on Werkdiscs. New EP from Hamburg’s Helena Hauff, full of dark, shuffling electronica and rolling rhythms.

Official reissue LP on Goma Gringa. Straight from 1972, here’s some grade-A African funk straight from… Brazil? Tribo Massahi sound like they are straight from the Ghanan '70s funk scene, but they hail from way across the ocean. Next to nothing is known about the band, whose only album Estrelando Embaixador is packed with positive vibes and was completely unfindable. Until now!…view full details.

Sauna Youth / Monotony
Split

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

6/10 according to our Clinton on 13th May 2015

In the second of this week’s ridiculously incestuous releases, Sauna Youth do a split single with Monotony - both bands containing the exact same people. The name Sauna Youth always bothered me  - can they not come up with anything a smidgeon more original? The music too is the kind of ‘90’s thrashy stuff we’ve …view full details.

Dawn Of Midi
Dysnomia

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 27th May 2015

You won’t find any Midi here. Unless this Brooklyn trio are masters of sonic lies, all of the music they create is pulled from the combination of drums, piano and bass, but you’d hardly notice. Many many layered, persistent rhythms overlap from familiar sound sources being used in an unfamiliar way to make Dysnomia an exciti…view full details.

Ford Proco / Coil
Expansion Naranja

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 18th June 2015

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 …view full details.

Karen Gwyer
Bouloman

8/10 according to our Laurie on 24th July 2015

Traversing the outer boundaries of techno once again is our fave Karen Gwyer and her cluster of technological massage. The machine grooves on Bouloman are set to drift and hypnotise you with her now-perfected contrast between the thump-squelch of acidic drum lines and deeply moving synth washes, which vary in subtlety from a hint (&lsqu…view full details.

I guess this is as good a time as any to confess that I have never actually listened to a Thee Oh Sees record. Feels good to admit it. Please don’t take away my psych badge. I think we can all agree this little problem has never stopped me from comparing psych bands to Thee Oh Sees in the past. Da…view full details.

Yair Elazar Glotman
Études

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 23rd July 2015

The double bass is an instrument that has struggled to escape from the world that created it - the ruthless traditionalist institution of Classical music. Jazz was its ray of hope, but that soon formalised into something not too far away from the Vienna schools. Yair Elazar Glotman is a child of this system who realised that you can actually do …view full details.

8/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

This music sounds the way blowing bubbles does: you think it’s all fun and games, and it is, I will grant you that -- but it’s the kind of fun that is literally floating away from you as it happens, submitting its joy to the ether instead of sticking with you. Fun isn’t for you. Fun is for the sky. Not much is …view full details.

Here's the second album of contemporary Ghanaian music by King Ayisoba, following his well received 'Modern Ghanaians' LP. Ayisoba plays a traditional two-string guitar called the Kologo. It's quite a varied album, ranging from busy polyrhythmic anthems to thoughtful and quiet numbers like 'Yele Mengire Nbo Se'ena (Election Song)' and 'Song for …view full details.

It’s been 15 years since Super Furry Animals low-key Welsh language ‘Mwing’ album and as it’s been long out of print maybe now is as good a time as any for a re-issue.

The long awaited Boards of Canada album is here and as we work in a record shop we have already had hours and hours of discussion about its triumphs and pitfalls.

With the treble viola da gamba as her primary source of sound -- plus a lot of big ideas about looping the strings until they’re off the grid -- Colleen makes a record of charming mindfuckery and altered composition. ‘Captain of None’ is a wonderful example of phasing baroque, of reinventing sound that should be revered, not to…view full details.

With the potential to be the best thing out of Southport since Marc Almond, Lapsley is the latest hotly tipped starlet on the books of XL and it's rare that they make big clunking mistakes.

‘Vulnicura’ is so unconditionally painful. It is above and beyond the call of duty of any sad singer-songwriter album. It is a full consumption of heartbreak; an analysis of how to struggle with it, a treatise in feeling it, and an exhibition of the physical sound it makes. That’s a lot for one record to cover, but her…view full details.
