Of Montreal
Skeletal Lamping

The artwork present in of Montreal is garish, colourful, disturbing, cartoonish and entrancing. All of the words I used to describe the art in this band compliments their music perfectly, particularly in their visually stimulating live shows. It's no surprise that the man behind the band's art is the brother of Kevin Barnes (the lead singer and ...view item »

Cozy
Button by Button

Cozy Powell. Peeder Powell watch out. This is the debut release from Cozy who play a banging style of 70's glam power pop that gives Gary Glitter a run for his money. Fans of The Sweet and Bay City Rollers take note; there's a new gang in town and they are armed with fuzzy guitars, stack harmonies and stack heels galore. If you are allergic to h...view item »

So good to get some more stuff from Lebanese producer Rabih Beaini so soon after his magnificent ‘Albidaya’ album for Annihaya released under his own name. This however has him back in Morphosis mode with five track...view item »

Bugs & Rats
Adidas

An obnoxious kebab of unrest from Bugs & Rats. Adidas is a bilge pump of evil hardcore/punk-rock with a seriously demented garage ascetic. Overblown with distorted-to-the-max guitars, muddy vocal squawks and a battery of drums. It's somewhere between Converge and The Sonics. Out on vinyl LP from Feeding Tube Records...view item »

Swanox
Duskrunner

Not Not Fun delve further into new-age weird-loner America with this evocative LP from Swanox. Duskrunner marks the first vinyl transmission for Anthony Orion, and contains more heady, heavy, abstracted vibes. Only 299 copies pressed of this blissful Californian detritus exist. Sounds like ...view item »

dualit
Raw Material

London label EarToGround with their first release from German techno duo dualit. Four tracks and two locked grooves (so you can listen to the brutal beat forever), the shuffling brittle rhythms are combined with enough dynamic range and out-there weirdness to keep everyone happy. The label’s last release of 2014 with real ...view item »

John Cale
The Academy In Peril

Ex-Velvets member and founded John Cale used 'The Academy In Peril' to think outside of the punk rock box and make music informed by classical and instrumental compositions. It answers a fundamental question of life: what would it be like if John Cale played with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra? 'The Academy In Peril' plays high and low at the ...view item »

Chevel
Tank / Beaviane

Only the third release on the Mistry label, Chevel's newest 12” is here to treat all you early Monday-night party-seekers to the time of your life.

Dronelock
Clusters

The weather is always grey and overcast on these dense remixes of Dronelock’s ‘Clusters’ 12”. Mark Broom, Ontal and Rivet each bring their distinctive variations on brooding, rough techno and the orginal mix is kindly included too. The tracks are diverse, but there’s enough shared industrial drone, ...view item »

Peter's Window
Last Summer on Earth / Grapey Day

A pop artist who's as renegade as a TV cop who doesn't play by the rules, Pete Nichols' debut record Last Summer On Earth / Grapey Day combines his love of easy, persuasive melodies and subversive, mislabelled sound effects. It's the kind of pop that sounds pretty and ugly at the same time, whic...view item »

Sterling Roswell

Spacemen 3 drummer dude Sterling Roswell joins the crew at Fire Records for his newest solo offering, 'The Call of the Cosmos', which comes full of flying saucers, alien abductions and next generation psychedelia.

Von Spar
Streetlife

Von Spar are back after releasing a live adaptation of Can's 'Ege Bamyasi', here to unleash their own brand of new-era krautrock to the world with 'Streetlife' -- the weirdest of '70s rock, but with some disco too. This record is, as ever, a highly collaborative affair, bringing on board Marker Starling, Ada and Scout Niblett for a variety of vo...view item »

Digital Dance
Total Erasement

Digital Dance are a supergroup of cold-hearted post-punks from a variety of chilly coat-wearing acts including Kid Montana, The Revenge and Marine. They know what they're doing, basically, and the dissonance, despondency and general dourness of 'Total Erasement' can speak to their wisdom and experience. This collection of their singles and demos...view item »

I.N.T
Percy La Rock EP

Got some smooth soulful hip-hop action here from I.N.T., aka Percy Samidjono, aka Percy La Rock (an old-skool hip-hop name bestowed upon him by 'Wildstyle' director Charlie Ahearn), who's got a slew of records behind him already on labels like Stones Throw and Rush Hour. Now he's on Dwina, dropping seven fresh cuts with several guest stars inclu...view item »

Pan & Me
Ocean Noise

Pan & Me is in fact Christophe Mevel, a dark ambient artist who has previously made some seriously droning, evil jazz as part of the Dale Cooper Quartet. His solo project takes more from neo-classical than from jazz, bringing in electronic elements more formally to create a variety of sustained sounds, be they ambient pieces, field recording...view item »

D.O.A
It’s Not Unusual

This five-song disc features a cover of the quasi-title cut that Tom Jones made most famous. Of course, the D.O.A. version of "It's Not Unusual" has an entirely different tone than that of the perpetually panty-showered Vegas crooner. Vocalist Joey Keithley revels in the schmaltzy track, extending notes with a throat-splitting caterwaul and enou...view item »

Inter Arma
The Cavern

With 'Sky Burial', Inter Arma chose two aggressively imposed types of heavy music -- sludge and black metal, respectively -- and put them together them like they were twins. On 'The Cavern', though, they make something singular even for them, a forty minute composition in just one song, making for a hard, long metal slog that takes after Om, Sle...view item »

Wampire
Bazaar

Cheery, tongue-in-cheek psych rock seems to fit the bill for this band named Wampire. Their new record, 'Bazaar', is full of guitar fuzz lore, with song titles like "Wizard's Staff" floating around in there. It was produced by Jake Portrait, who has worked with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and helps keep the riffage clear and articulated throughout...view item »

We Were Promised Jetpacks
Unravelling

Sad Scottish indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks match up to their label-mates Frightened Rabbit for songs that try to tug on the heartstrings pretty much non-stop. 'Unravelling' is their third record in five years, trying out the kind of soaring, epic songs indie rock bands tend to make as they grow up. They remain similar to their miserabl...view item »

Melted Toys
Melted Toys

You've got the old-school options of either vinyl or cassette for the debut Melted Toys album. These cats are from San Francisco and they play a sun-hazed slacker pop that falls somewhere between the easy-going MOR Of the likes of Real Estate and Triptides and the wibbly psy...view item »

The Bad Joke That Ended Well
Alta Loma

Alta Loma sees The Bad Joke That Ended well adding elements of 70s psychedelia to their garage rock sound. Long drum solos and theremins are added to the mix.

The History Of Apple Pie
Feel Something

The History of Applie Pie continue to shoot for that blissful shoegaze sound on 'Feel Something', their washed out second record. It follows up 'Out of View', and sees the band trying to expand again, with "Tame" featuring a piano lead and "Shake" bringing indie rock dude Gary Jarman (of Cribs fame) into the fray. They're still noisy, but they l...view item »

Pit Er Pat
High Time Remix

Hey hey!!! Here we've got 'High Time Remix', five re-mixes from Pit Er Pat's 2008 release 'High Time'. I'm a big fan of the band but last years LP seems to have passed me by somehow. This i regret as Pit Er Pat are going from strength to strength and these re-mixes are sounding top. 'The Ciaro shuffle' remixed by Brenmar is a tropical multi-tap del...view item »

Karlist
Russian Torrent Versions 12

More from Russian Torrent Versions here, '12' offering up some new work from techno vortex ripper Karlist, who provides a strict and disciplined A-side based around a straight-and-narrow synthline and immediate percussion.

Suzerain
Dark Dark / Manhattan

Indie rock quintet Suzerain take a lot of photos in black and white and also occasionally write and record some music; the 'Dark Dark / Manhattan' 12" is a showcase of the latter, with two tracks that meld conventional guitar jamming with some weirder inspirations: hints of New Wave, Trent Reznor and krautrock Bowie. ...view item »

Angus Tarnawsky
Pitched

Angus Tarnawsky gets welcome to the electronic stalwarts at Inner Surface Music with 'Pitched', an EP of disorientating rhythms, syncopated drums and stern synthesizer work.

Or make music, whatev...view item »

Ruby Fray
Grackle

'Grackle' is the newest record from Ruby Fray, a songwriter who tells dark stories by the way of sweet Americana melodies. Following up on 'Pith', this record continues to showcase Fray's brand of soft but equally unsettling indie folk, but also utilities left-field tactics, bringing in trip-hop style rhythms on "It's Mine" and honest-to-god bea...view item »

Cowbell
Skeleton Soul

The kind of rock band you have to employ different spellings of the word for -- like rawk, or rockin', or rock 'n' roll -- Cowbell mix a quick-hitting brand of garage rock with elements of blues and a good few moments of twang. On 'Skeleton Soul', the sound is a little less immediate, with a few flourishes other than guitars and drums creep...view item »

The Rose Explodes

'The Rose Explodes' is the second record from brooding super-group Dream Boat, made out of Elephant 6 legend Dan Donahue, who has been a wordsmith for Of Montreal and Elf Power in his time, and singer-songwriter Page Campbell, who offers up her fractured, crackling vocals. A bunch of their like-minded friends, from both Elephant 6 fame and Hope ...view item »

Indie pop band Glass Ghost is host to singer and master of the keyboards Eliot Krimsky and drummer Mike Johnson, who made their new record 'Lyfe' with a sprinkling of indie rock royalty: from Sharon Van Etten to members of Here We Go Magic.

Oldmate
It Is What It Is

Melbourne based Oldmate was initially the solo project of Pat Telfer from Australian band Bitch Prefect (what a name) but has since progressed into a band of 7-10 strong musicians including members of Wireheads and Peak Twins. Still predominantly led by Telfer, ‘It Is What It Is’ is Oldmate’s debut LP, and continues in the same...view item »

Seth Cluett
Forms of Forgetting

Actual art, but in a record. If that sounds up your alley, this could be the disc for you. Seth Cluett describes himself as an artist, performer and musician. He plays a load of different instruments, some of which he made himself, and he is very heavy on concepts, experimentation and utilizing a variety of techniques to make music. This ha...view item »

Neg Fi
Mid Side

Neg Fi are a Brooklyn based duo who enjoy nothing more than composing short, intense and slightly odd recordings.

Garek Jon Druss
Music For The Celestial Din

"Celestial" might not be the word you attribute to Garek Jon Druss, who spends most of his time helping amp up the sludge in doom metal outfit Atriarch. But his solo offering, 'Music For the Celestial Din', is a little different, a composition originally made for one of Druss' art installations. Its sound is somewhere between melo...view item »

Of course! What on earth made you think it was a hummingbird? After having played 300 concerts in two years this loose group of friends and musicians have tightened up into a rocking five piece line up to create a sophisticated and complex album. Not your normal singer-y songwriter-y effort by any stretch of the imagination. They are moving slow...view item »

The Travelling Band
The Big Defreeze

Manchester, so much to answer for etc. The Travelling Band construct rootsy country folk rock stuff that will appeal to the more beardy-weirdy , foot-tapping thoughtful type who likes their music thoroughly authentic, retro and earnest. There's harmonies and tunes galore and no doubt some ballads too. The guitars have been commented on elsewhere...view item »

Scrase
Another

Twinned with 'Heart', his other, warmer slice of ambient house, Scrase has released 'Another', an EP that takes a more sinister turn, abandoning the kindly, natural atmospheres for aggressive acoustic percussion and eerie layers of sound that wouldn't be out of place on an Amon Tobin record. 'Another'&nbs...view item »

Pollot
Pollot

A band from Turku, Finland and its ever-expanding scene of intriguing experimental rock acts, Pöllöt are now releasing their self-titled debut record.

Felizol & The Boy
Like Cannibal Father Like Cannibal Son

Optimo Music veer away from their usual 12" roster with this full-length LP from Felizol & The Boy. A collection of recordings made over three years, the theme is cannibalism and the feel, unsurprisingly given that Yiannis Veslemes and Alexandros Voulgaris are film directors, is cinematic - with plenty of nods to Stanley Kubrick and Joh...view item »

Man At Arms
A Waste Of Time And Space

Man at Arms makes music that has been called "The most masculine thing I've ever heard," "articulate" and "like Primus" (which they sympathize with, but are reluctant to understand).

Heisenberg
Ripatti06

Frequent collaborators Sasu Ripatti, AKA Vladislav Delay, and Max Loderbauer become Heisenberg. Ripatti was intended as a label to release various unhinged studio experiments but these tracks are murkier, faster and, if I’m being cruel, much more fun than their recent solo work. It’s the kind of free-form techno only...view item »

Richard Ginns
Fall, Rise

A brief survey of this new Richard Ginns CD on Twice Removed. Seven tracks of twinkly, sleep-inducing ambience and field recordings.

Cold Name is the solo alter-ego of Jesse Ruins' Nobuyuki Sakuma, and this week he's got an album out on the reliable Desire imprint. From the Cold Cave-ish artwork I was expecting a cold wavey type sound but this is actually a subtle and slowly-unfolding electronica album featur...view item »

Cocktails know growing up will kill you, eventually. But somewhere between the mundane strictures of a responsible American life in the 21st century, with its attendant student debt, meager 401 (k)s, and the macro brew-soaked recklessness of youth is a sweet spot.

Mirko is getting all up inside ya on this one. Blank Slate 004 is a big slab of mind melters from the New York label.

An album that is “loaded with charm, playfulness and an unpredictable bent that keeps every song interesting,” it deserves a wider audience.

I bloody loved that Mercury-winning Klaxons album. I don't know why, I never exactly listened to it much soon after release.

Taste of Sundress

Eggs, Eggs are David Russell and a collection of anarchic musicians on everything from synths, violins, autoharps and all sorts of mad screams and peculiar sounds.

Tone-worshipping Chicago duo Cleared are back this week with another LP of their distorto-drone compositions, mixing electronics, guitars, and lots of sounds whose original sources are pretty much anyone's guess.
