Dog Bite
Tranquilizers

I'm finally nearing the end of today's review pile, but before I finish here's the second LP by Atlanta's Dog Bite, who play a kind of Wild Nothing-esque ketamine shoegoth which is alternately dreamy and dreary. It's like a foggy dream about Echo & the Bunnymen. There's lots of reverb and e...view item »

neohachi
Lovecadio Hearn

If two Japanese girls used synthesizers, drum loops and whatever else they could find to make music, the results can be tasteful indeed. Ranging from Dan Deaconesque hard thumping beats to ethereal guitars accompanied by angelic singing, neohachi’s debut Lovecadio Hearn is not only promising, but also an original ...view item »

fraqsea
Majoram

Soothing textures wrap around fraqsea’s voice like a cocoon, filled with warmth, quiet and safety. Gentle beats thump along the insides as you drift away into your own imaginations. It is no exaggeration when The White Paddy record label states: “All her tracks gives you magical dream like fairy story.”...view item »

Oak
Snakes In The Grass (Woolford & Nasty mixes)

Essential purchase and first release on Nightmares On Wax' new label.The Paul Woolford mix in incredible. Adding some lovely aggressive drum sounds and an amazing piano/synth line about half way through which really cranks it up.Possibly a little old now but this will be my second copy. Testament to the stature of this great pie...view item »

Winter North Atlantic
Phonautogram

Office favourite Ed “Winter North Atlantic” Carter moves to the unlikely home of Alt Vinyl for this, his third album under the WNA moniker (although he’s been a busy lad since the last record with projects including ‘~Flow’ - “a floati...view item »

D33J
Gravel

Do you want to float across pretty horizons while dreaming of nicer days? That’s all producer D33J ever does, and his new 12” EP Gravel is a fancy continuation of his work so far. Floaty beats and trippy vocals is really all you need to have a good night by yourself, and DEEJ wants to be there with you....view item »

Naked Lights
Chime Grove

Krautrock. Much like the weather and Owen Wilson in ‘Zoolander’, it’s so hot right now. So hot. Here then are Naked Lights, a quintet from sunny California doing their version of the genre, a warm and immersive repeato sound with reasonably brief songs (they managed to squeeze 14 onto this LP) and bright, approachable tones. Ea...view item »

Jim Woerhle & Michael Yonkers
Borders of My Mind

Michael Yonkers recorded an album way back in 1968 which passed by unnoticed until it was released again a decade ago and he finally got the acclaim that he so richly deserved. This is another of his earlier pieces, showing the folksy heart of the man along with his friend and co-musician Jim Woerhle. Recorded o...view item »

Albert Elms and Ron Grainer
Man in a Suitcase: Box Set

Following on from the tradition of Film and TV themes that were perfected over the pond in the Hollywood studios by the likes of Henry Mancini, the theme to 60s UK P.I. caper, Man In A Suitcase scored by Albert Elms and Ron Grainer is one of the best examples of "crime jazz". This box s...view item »

Bored
Take It Out On You

Here's a reissue of a 1990 album from Australia's Bored!, recorded in the band's death throes and interestingly featuring the late Tim Hemensley, singer and bassist from GOD, who joined the band briefly after that act split up. His influence is very plainly felt, too, with the opening two tracks being Hemensley-penned n...view item »

Dan Haywood
Dapple

Damn, another bell is struck. I remember loving Dan Haywood’s New Hawks record of a couple of years back which I only didn’t fall in love with because weeks after the review when I got round to buying it I couldn’t remember who it was by. This is a less ambitious work, more content to potter ...view item »

Given
Piano Improvisations / Electrical Interferencies

Very limited (50 copies) CDr release from Given, aka Italian Dona Basile. Basile’s practice is broad, encompassing all manner of musics, up to and including Drum & Bass. Here though, he turns to the piano, for a series of improvisations. Surprisingly melodic, at least in comparison with most of the improvising I usuall...view item »

Andrei Machado
Catarse

Gently meandering over the keys of the piano, Andrei Machado lulls the listener into an absent state of mind. Named Catharse (Portuguese for catharsis), can the album deliver a ‘purgation of emotion’ as the title suggests? This is up to you to decide, but the subtle melodies and distant chordal accompaniment...view item »

Ghedalia Tazartes
Voyage à l‘ombre

Hinterzimmer are really spoiling us this week. Not only have they sent us a stunning new hour-long CD by Lubomyr Melnyk, there’s also this new offering from another underappreciated veteran of the European experimental community, France’s Ghedalia Tazartes. Originally released in 1997 and ...view item »

Various
Amada

Lithuanian Mamiko Motto curates a mix of electronic music from producers across the globe. Obey City weighs in with some dreamy chords, whilst Bobby heads straight to the dancefloor with the funky ‘Tame The Shrew’. There’s enough variety to maintain interest whilst offering a c...view item »

DJ Harlow
Waxwork

Rough and raw club music from the unknown quantity DJ Harlow. Waxwork is frantic and busy but with a real ear for negative space. Fuzzed out tape sound phase in and out of earshot as clickity clackity hi hats dance across the waveform, all held together by a pummeling kick drum that causes earthquakes on the dancefloor....view item »

Bee Mask
Pear Growers Series 1 (Surgeon & Abdulla Rashim remixes)

This is the The inaugural release on Chris Madak’s (AKA Beemask) new Pear Growers Series label. He’s commissioned a fine pair of remixes from two artists I’m very familiar with. Surgeon I’ve been following since he ...view item »

Chance
In Search

Chance Martin began his career as stage manager and lighting designer for his friend, the man in black himself Johnny Cash, and his first guitar was a present from the man himself. Hard to imagine a cooler start! Slightly scary and aggressive, this is the real deal from a man whose life story would no doubt make for quite a read. Vinyl LP c...view item »

Alien Radio
Kugeln

The second edition of Dekorder’s limited Hybrid-Vinyl 12” series celebrating 10 years of the label. With a picture disc on one side and a standard vinyl release on the other it’s a unique piece of usable memorabilia for fans of the label. Kugeln is the work of Alien Radio (a.k.a Ulf Schütte) ...view item »

Aquariana
Aquariana

Aquariana was one of Father Yod’s 13 (thirteen - count em!) wives. And there she is one the cover looking suspiciously like Rick Wakeman in a dress. Father Yod looks on eerily in the background as if wanting his money back after finding out his new wife was the lank haired composer of ‘Journey to the C...view item »

Max Elibacher
Red Anxiety Tracers

From Baltimore comes the first long player Red Anxiety Tracers from avant-garde musician Max Eilbacher. A collection of found sounds ands synthesised noises, the album glides through a frenetic land of peculiar auditory hallucination and complex sound structures. Contemporary electronic oddness, done just right....view item »

Papillon
Papillon

Papillon is one of my favourite films. I’ve seen it more times than I can possibly remember and I can’t think of a better film to watch on a Sunday afternoon. Watching Steve Mcqueen deteriorate from hardnut to frail old man over 3 hours is a feast for the mind. It also features lepers and to date this is my only experience of lepers ...view item »

The Bang Girl Group Revue
Soul Shangri-La

Inspired by the old days of heart-wrenching and life-affirming soul music -- back when it was the much idolized '60s -- The Bang Girl Group Revue take retro and reroute it for the current day. The trio try and keep their sound on Soul Shangri-La as true to their vision as possible, doing soul re...view item »

Tiger! Sh*t! Tiger! Tiger!
Forever Young

Hmm, not overly sure about the name. Not a fan in general of the over-use of explanation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I’ll forgive them because they are Italian and they are NOISY with a capital N. Tiger! Sh*t! Tiger! Tiger!  create a garagey racket full of ...view item »

Samantha Vacation
Samantha's Vacation / Postcards From Mssr Perdu

Twisty mutated house from Samantha Vacation. Here first 12” release for L.I.E.S, White Label consists of two side long tracks that fuse Detroit techno, bass music and a definite leaning towards a headphone listening experience. It’s wickedly warped and a little uneasy. Out on 12” vinyl from L.I.E.S....view item »

Pyrolator
Wunderland

A distinctly German take on easy listening, Wunderland by Pyrolator (aka Kurt Dahlke of Der Plan fame) is speckled with weird and wonderful sampled and lush arrangements. Originally released in 1984 it’s stacked with the bombast and production tropes of the decade. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Bureau B....view item »

Bloodgroup
Disquiet EP

A gothic blend of post-rock and electronica from Iceland’s Bloodgroup. Shimmering synths and unapologetically glitchy beats combine with icy vocals like Evanescence covering Depeche mode. Featuring remixes from Com Truise, Girl Unit, Keep Shelly in Athens and Renaissance Man. Out on 12” vinyl from Sugarcane Recording...view item »

Jahdan Blakkamoore / Ticklah / Victor Rice
The General (Ticklah Remix) / Elimination Game

A new sub-label from highly-regarded LionDub International named Liondub45, bringing in more dubstep, jungle and drum&bass sounds. Here’s one of the first releases, starring New York-based keyboard player, producer and reggae producer Ticklah, also known as Ticklah. One of the men behind the Dub Side of the Moon record...view item »

Matt Kivel
Double Exposure

I have a certain expectation of Olde English Spelling Bee releases and it looks like that expectation is gonna need adjustment as OESB isn’t the label it once was. This is no reflection on the quality of Matt Kivel’s work of course (he’s an excellent singer/songwriter) but I was hoping for something a little crazier. Anyway, wh...view item »

Twinsmith
Honestly

Weezer indebted Twinsmith follow their self-released debut album with Honestly. A well produced slice of radio-friendly pop. B-Side features "1 30" and "Big Deal". Perhaps thinks it's catchier than it is. Out on vinyl 7” on Saddle Creek. Limited to fifty copies in the UK....view item »

Derek Piotr
Raj

Not heard either of Derek Piotr's first two records so I’m a little lost for reference. He was nominated for the Rix Ars Electronica for Digital Musics prize last year so his music is definitely recognised within it’s field but somehow his output has passed me by. Sorry Poitr lad. His digital cut-up approach makes for a slightly diso...view item »
