Super Furry Animals
Bing Bong

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

Part of the reason for my recent flounce from social media has been my so called friends reaction to this new Super Furry Animals single. A flurry of wildly over the top exultations greeted it's release which sent me scurrying to Youtube in order to hear this new classic for myself. What I heard seemed to be a different song altogether, a kind of bouncy novelty song that would sound brilliant o…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Stasis

22 people love me. Be the 23rd...

9/10 according to our Phil

Absolutely bleeding wondersauce is this record! We all know Pye Corner Audio has been making great synthy sounds for a while... and I really like pies too so that's a bonus! Spooky dusty techno haunt music that sounds well old times! I feel like I'm in a library from the future on an industrial estate reading lots of old books. Martin Jenkin…view full details.

DeepChord
Atmospherica Vol. 1

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

8/10 according to our Ant

Pure Detroit dub techno magic in full mesmerising effect on this coloured wax 12” that precedes DeepChord’s ‘Ultraviolet’ 2CD on Soma. DeepChord have been consistently reliable over the years, you always pretty much know what you’re gonna get but sometimes safety can …view full details.

Clarence G
Hyperspace Sound Lab

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

9/10 according to our Ant

Drexciya lovers can now rejoice with a sense of relief they didn’t auction off semi-vital organs to fund the purchase of an original copy of this highly sought after EP. Originally released outta Detroit back in 1991, it was the solitary release on Fluorescent Forest Rec. You can hear the seeds of Drexciya’s sound…view full details.

DeepChord
Atmospherica Vol. 2

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

You can count on DeepChord to live up the project name: each of these 3 beat excursions take it down low, the synths and the drum pulses echoing up to the listener as if from the bottom of a cavern. That’s particularly true of the last track, which sounds extra hazy. Atmospherica Vol. 2 is out on the Soma label.…view full details.

Danny Norbury
Light In August

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

This is a much needed re-issue of Norbury’s debut full length record from 2009 and includes bonus tracks from his earlier EP on Static Caravan. Once at the forefront of the neo-classical revolution, Norbury has been quieter in recent years, seemingly content to add his weight to releases by the likes of The Boats, Nancy Eli…view full details.

Sylvain Chauveau
Abstractions

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

8/10 according to our ReviewBot300

Neoclassical/experimental minimalist Sylvain Chauveau is back with a collection of remixes of both his own and other people’s work on this CD here. ‘Heart Beating’, originally by Agoria, has some sweeping cinematic Craig Armstrong-esque strings for a …view full details.

Varg
Star Alliance

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Varg’s Star Alliance, previously a vanishingly-limited 6-tape box-set, now makes it onto vinyl. The Varg sound is electronic but varied, with a slightly dark mood the main point of consistency. Oh and it isn’t the racist black metal Varg by the way, I checked. Double LP (with most of the original tracks and a few new ones) on Posh Isolation.…view full details.

Pixies
Head Carrier

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

It probably would have been better had these last two ‘Pixies’ albums come out under a completely different moniker then at least their legacy as one of the greatest and most innovative rock bands on the planet would not be as tarnished. Here on their second 'comeback' LP they play a form of reasonable alt rock that had it come out in the late ‘80s/early '90s been confine…view full details.

Roy Harper
Stormcock

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

Roy Harper (via his Science Friction label) is doing us all a valuable favour by getting a few classic early Harper records back into vinyl circulation again for the first time in decades, to celebrate Harper’s 75th birthday. Stormcock is a wonderful album with some particularly epic long tracks. The audio has been remastered, and is presented alongside lyrics and liner notes.…view full details.

13th Floor Elevators
The Psychedelic Sounds Of

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

9/10 according to Luke Knight (customer) on

One of the best psychedelic albums. Sounds so good on LP and the feature of "Electrified Jug" or "Electric Jug" on the album makes it instantly memorable and recognisable. The lead singer of the band Roky Erikson once declared he was under control of aliens and was investigated by the FBI. But you wouldn't be able to tell that listening to the album it is just great songs "you're gonna miss me" will be an instant favourite absolute classic and one of the coolest LP cov…view full details.

BADBADNOTGOOD

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

9/10 according to our Robin

BADBADNOTGOOD ARE IN FACT A VERY GOOD BAND. HA HA. LOL. MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THEM IS THAT THEY DARE TO DREAM. THEY USE CAPITAL LETTERS AT WILL, BECAUSE WHY NOT. THEY DO A SONG WITH THE GRUMPY-VOICED GUY FROM FUTURE ISLANDS AND SEQUENCE IT ALONGSIDE A SONG NAMED IN TRIBUTE TO USHER, FEATURING BASS-SAX STOMPER …view full details.

It must be a tough life being an Allah La. You wake up at about 2pm in the middle of an LA heatwave, check if your palm tree has made it through the night ok, grab a breakfast burrito before the days big decision of choosing which sunglasses to wear takes place. From there it’s into the studio to make the most laid back music it’s possible to make whilst actually standing…view full details.

Deap Vally
Femejism

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

Deap Vally are a punk-poppish LA duo. Like most punk-poppish LA duos, they have stackloads of swagger and a tasty fuzz on their guitars. Femejism rattles through 13 tracks, some of which veer away from noisy pop songs into more experimental / proggy zones. Good time music with kick-ass attitude! On Cooking Vinyl.…view full details.

Ultimate Painting
Dusk

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

Ultimate Painting are an example of one of those times where the side project becomes the main band. These members of Veronica Falls and Mazes would be hard pressed to find time for any other musical projects these days with the runaway success of this prolific thing. If stuck think of them somewhere between an English …view full details.

Sonic Youth
Goo

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

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

The last of five indispensable albums Sonic Youth released in the late 1980s, they had the good sense to ensure their first release with 'major label muscle' behind it was also their most accessible. Like all great Sonic Youth albums, Goo manages to simultaneously give an immediate pure noise thrill, whilst ceaselessly pushing the boundary of popular music. By ceaselessly innovating Sonic Youth have changed the face of `alternative' music. Almost every great band of the past decade is forever…view full details.

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

45 people love me. Be the 46th...

10/10 according to ewanm (customer) on

Classic albums are ten a penny... Look at them all sitting there. You've got so many of them they're making your shelf warp. But how many of them are truly ground breaking? And of these, riding in the vanguard, how many haven't succumbed to their own success and become passé from adoption, repetition and imitation? DJ Shadow's Endtroducing can stick it's hand up and scream "MEEEEEE!". Every track feels fresh and new and glorious, having not listened to it properly in good wee w…view full details.

Nirvana
MTV Unplugged In New York

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

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

No Nirvana collection is complete without this historical live recording session. Recorded only a few months before Kurt Cobain's tragic death, Nirvana were an unlikely candidate for an unplugged concert. Hits like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "In Bloom" and "Lithium" were what the group were renowned for; this performance showed the world that they have a softer side and there is more beauty and emotion in their music than appears. Cobain also pulls out some impressive covers throughout by Mea…view full details.

Placebo
Placebo

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

7/10 according to Jack (customer) on

If you're a fan of Placebo, this is a must have reissue of their debut album. Placebo's first album is in my opinion one of the best modern rock albums out there. The songs are raw yet melodic, lyrics are fun, and the music is just all around great. Of course, one could consider it as a noisy teenage angst album, one more... But no, it makes sense, it`s a spontaneous and exciting debut album, with no fuss, just pure adrenalin. The lyrics are daring, the music is obsessive, and the album is a …view full details.

Placebo
Without You I'm Nothing

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

I'd only vaguely heard of Placebo before the movie Velvet Goldmine came out. After watching that movie I immediately went out and bought the soundtrack and heard Placebo's cover of "20th Century Boy" and I was riveted. And after a trip to the nightclub in my friend's car one evening, I knew this was an album I had to hear. She had listened to it at a very rough time in her life and the music truly helped her along and that night she chose to share it with me. Brian Molko's voice is truly beau…view full details.

Death Grips
Bottomless Pit

7/10 according to our Robin

Ah yes, Death Grips: the internet band who shout. Having broken up and maybe gotten back together -- or did they just ignore the fact of their break-up and carry on with it? -- the power-everything duo have returned with ‘Bottomless Pit’, their first non-instrumental piece since the Powers that B saga. In the interim people have been reviewing their interviews and shit, but this fee…view full details.

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine

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

8/10 according to our Robin

Here lies a record with an opening tune so unbelievably brilliant I worry for everything that comes after it. “A 1000 Years”, the first glimpse of a collaboration between two indie rock deserters in Hamilton Leithauser (an ex-Walkmen crooner) and Rostam Batmanglij (an ex-Vampire Weekend songmaker), is a tune that po…view full details.

Blood Orange
Cupid Deluxe

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

9/10 according to S.Westwood (customer) on

Blood Orange is back with a new album this time called "Cupid Deluxe" this album continues with his streak of great albums. This new album kicks off with the great track "Chamakay" which is a great track and a great way to open the album. It also has a great groove and features some great instrumental work. The production on this album also really makes the songs shine through. Another highlight for me is the track "Chosen" which is the longest track on the album and really shows how his soun…view full details.

Beginning with voice all of a croak amongst some clatter and discordant piano notes, the second part of the track sounds like a duck quacking along to Simple Minds ‘Alive and Kicking’ but having toured with Chelsea Light Moving 4AD can’t have signed another dud have they? Well it finally get going into a kind of 80’s sounding …view full details.

Oh, Clinton is going to love this. The honour of this review falls upon me as our resident jaded Yorkshireman isn’t here, he’s presumably sunning himself somewhere exotic (He's definitely in Yorkshire - Stand-in Ed.).

Sufjan Stevens
Seven Swans

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

Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Seven Swans’ was originally released in 2004. Ten years on, and this revered indie folk record gets the reissue treatment after becoming somewhat of a modern classic. The new version has been remastered and pressed onto higher quality vinyl. It includes bonus tracks that didn’t originally make the cut, alongside a bonus 7” of two Sufjan songs from the ‘Seven Swans’ sessions that are not currently available in any other format.…view full details.

Bit of excitement surrounding this release as it's been produced by the big man on campus, Flying Lotus. Lotus managed to coerce touring artist/outstanding bass player Stephen Bruner to release some of his own solo material and has done a sweet job on the production too.

Songs: Ohia
Magnolia Electric Co. (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Magnolia Electric Co was the final album Jason Molina released under the name Songs: Ohia. Whilst touring the album, he decided to change the name of the band to Magnolia Electric Co (who never released an album called Songs: Ohia). You can hear something had changed - this Steve Albini-produced record has a harder edge than previous releases. Sadly, Molina died in March 2013 of alcohol-related organ failure.

A decade on from ‘Black Mountain’s initial release and it seems it made a big enough impact the first time around for it to be re-released with 8 bonus tracks. Sounding like an amalgamation of something between Black Flag and Black Sabbath it’s sort of understandable why. It’s alright - in a psych-rock revivalist, Galaxie 500 copyist sort of way.

So… this dude is like if the National were replaced with a mangled computer? Is that it?

This is definitely one of my favourite releases from Archy Marshall's (King Krule's) many alter egos. It may not be as accessible as his album under the name of King Krule, (6 Feet Beneath the Moon) however this experimental soundtrack to his book pushes his music towards new horizons. The album consists of a mixture of trance-like beats, as well as lyrically genuious phrases such as 'When it rains it fucking pours, The sky opens its mouth and spits to the flo…view full details.

The overarching drone that metalhead-turned-composer J. R. Robinson sets in place on 'Then It All Came Down' is unrelenting, with one chord kept in place for what feels like an eternity before another can usurp it. What's captivating about it is its fogginess; it's processed to sound natural and chilling, and any effects complementing it -- such as the free-falling chimes, suffocated string arr…view full details.

The prospect of listening to a sparser version of this year’s most emotionally devastating record isn’t my idea of a great workday, but at least it’s not Sufjan a cappella, right?
