Lemonade
Minus Tide

Three records in this morning and the first two are so awful I’m not even going to bother reviewing them. This is truly dreadful too but at least its entertaining, for a couple of tracks anyway. Its a kind of poppy take on the chill-wave genre with some serious horrid production. On the second track they use a panpipe. I’ll t...view item »

High Lucia
Wash

Post-driftstep's not dead! Here's a delicious mini-album of woozy basspop/trip-hop concoctions full of mumbly vocals, smudgy synths and slo-mo beats, tailor made for those who are getting restless waiting for something new from Clams Casino or Balam Acab. "Multi-directional ambi...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. Unlike the majority of free performance releases we get in the office, Neg Fi's music is short and to the point, utilising detuned guitars, bass, walkie-talkies and handmade devices to create a concise and minimal style of noise rock...view item »

Moulettes
Constellations

Its hard to know what to make of this. Its an extremely polished and well put together take on a kind of cabaret folk, with some sweeping grandiose statements amongst the busy arrangements. Its sorta Cardiacs meets the Smoke Faries with hints of The Chap...view item »

Garek Jon Druss
Music For The Celestial Din

Away from his doom metal band Atriarch, Garek Jon Druss here presents the music from an art installation, 'The Celestial Din', originally presented as a 32-minute loop which played through five paper and wood polyhedron-shaped speakers (as seen on the front cover), based around the frequencies 396HZ, 417HZ and 528H...view item »

Honig
It's Not A Hummingbird, It's Your Father’s Ghost

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 »


Marshall Teller presents... Broken Record Label Sampler Vol. 1

Here is a compilation of stuff from the Marshall Teller label. Some big-ish names are here including The Vaccines (remixed by The Horrors Tom Furse), Dignan Porch, Cheatahs and the great ...view item »

Cymbals Eat Guitars
LOSE

Okay indie poppers Cymbals Eat Guitars return this week with sophomore effort you've probably not been waiting for, but I expect you don't remember hating them either. They step out on the wrong foot sadly, instantly pummelling the listener with cinematic strings and weirdly compressed piano on...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

This EP is twinned with another 12", 'Heart', also released this week. That one focuses on Scrase's warm, ambient house side while 'Another' delves into more sinister percussive techno-ish territory, with three numbered percussion tracks, a couple of dark electronic loopscapes 'Another' and 'Movon', and ...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. Their music often retains the lo-fi tag -- not as a trophy but as a tool -- fixing it on grooves that sound beautifully suppressed as a result of their production. The ban...view item »

Judson Claiborne
We Have Not Doors You Need Not Keys

Musician and yoga teacher Christopher Salveter and his friends, otherwise known as American band Judson Claiborne release their third album. It's based around the concept that people communicate more with body language than verbal language (hence the title). Lo-fi and Morphine-esque, with various guests including The Swell Season's Marketa Irglo...view item »

Blackberry Smoke
Leave A Scar Live in North Carolina

Blackberry Smoke are, against all odds, a band from the oughties. Their brand of super-charged Southern rock and country journeying suggests that Neil Young's "Southern Man" clearly passed them by; they probably still ring in radio stations to hear Lynyrd Skynyrd songs. The dudes in this band all have either a be...view item »

Oliver Coates
Another Fantasy

This is one of those strange and hypnotic experimental techno records that played at a low volume can be plain annoying but banged right up is a genuinely sublime trip. Built around a ripping, relentless ascending cello loop, 'Another Fantasy' is a radical re-fit built around Bryce Hackford's track of the same title . Pa...view item »

Bear Hands
Distraction

Bear Hands are from Brooklyn and have signed to Warner Brothers for this sparkling opus. Looks like they've got all the pop hooks out for this eclectic collection of genre hopping ranging from psychedelic to punk. Just listening to ‘Giants’ which I hated at first with its rapped verse but once it gets into an infe...view item »

The Peak Twins
Pump Me Up

New York DJs Lloydski (Night People/Tiki Disco/Dither Down) and Ter Khan Lawrence (Nurvous) join forces as The Peak Twins with this debut 12" on Dither Down. Two fresh cuts of bouncy rave-inspired (have you seen that video?) NY house full of repetitive sample snippets and crisp beats, plus an Ultracity re...view item »

Francisco Lopez
Untitled#281

This new CD from Francisco Lopez is likely to polarise opinions. Sound artist Francisco Lopez has constructed this single half-hour piece out of field recordings of birdsong which he recorded between 1995 and 2010 around Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Spain, South Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico and Peru, rendered mostly unrecognisable though "ext...view item »

Head Boggle
Serge Modular in Hi-Fi

Aside from his eponymous 2012 album, 'Serge Modular in Hifi' is Derek Gedalecia, aka Head Boggle's debut foray into the world of vinyl. San Francisco-based experimental weird merchant Gedalecia is well known for his subversive instrumentalism. Using a vintage serge modular synth system (the clue was in the title) this blends dub reggae mixing pr...view item »

White Hinterland
Baby

Baby is the third album by White Hinterland, aka Casey Dienel. Dienel has juxtaposed deep, dark songs with gospel and R&B, music she has always loved. Baby was recorded with the help of Dienel’s friends Sean Carey (Bon Iver), Neal Morgan (Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom) and Cole Kam...view item »

Psychedelic Horseshit
Magic Flowers Droned

When bands with names like Psychedelic Horseshit come along I always find my curiosity gets the better of me. While it's on I thought I'd write a few words about it just so you know if it is indeed horseshat or not. Magic Flowers Droned is a CD and LP on the newly regenerated Siltbreeze label. It's a right ole lo fi shambling mess with it's heart i...view item »

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

The sticker on the front of this CD says it's "recommended for fans of The Minutemen's 'Paranoid Time', Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time' and Space Ghost Coast to Coast"...that's a six-minute-long record, a book and a cartoon for stoners. The post-it left by a colleague gives more of a clue as to the...view item »

Theme
No Emotions Catered For

On No Emotions Catered For, Theme’s fifth album, the improv rock of the collaborative work and the rich atmospherics of before give way to something that, whilst still drawing from these realms, is more disposed to organic electronics, cut-ups, live instruments, loops and, once again, often equally cut-up vocals that play with words as muc...view item »

Sam De La rosa
Chameleon

Led Er Est singer Sam De La Rosa goes it alone for the first time this week on this mini-album for Burka For Everybody. Pretty cool it is too, glacial synth-led pop with wistful vocals and a robotically pacing feel to its icy grooves and foggy ambience. Some tracks, such as 'Erase Blanco', are instrumenta...view item »

Ultraista
Ultraista

Ultraίsta, the multimedia trio comprised of vocalist/artist Laura Bettinson and multi-instrumentalist/producers Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker. Founded in London in 2011 on a mutual love of Afrobeat, electronic and dance music, visual art and tequila, Ultraísta has created 10 tracks of exquisitely crafted electronic kraut-pop fo...view item »

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. It kinda sounds like he's recorded this outdoors in an intentionally raw fashion as there appears to be the sensation of a breeze blowing through some trees or a particularly hissy tape track beneath the meandering...view item »

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires
There Is A Bomb in Gilead

The musicians in LEE BAINS III & The GLORY FIRES sing with Southern accents, because they speak with Southern accents. They sing about places called Birmingham and Opelika, because they were born and raised in and around places called Birmingham and Opelika. They don’t wear Depression-era clothing, and they don’t sing about picki...view item »

Roman Ruins
Source of Pride

Here's the second album from New Orleans architect-cum-songwriter Graham Hill, aka Roman Ruins, not to be confused with Damon Hill's dad. 'Source of Pride' is full of thoughtful and languid pop music full of soft synths and liquid guitar chimes and breathy wistful staring-into-the-middle-distance vocals. Think ...view item »

Massive
Full Throttle

Massive are RAWK!!! with a capital R. Earache's latest RAWK!!! signing, following in the footsteps of Rival Sons, The Temperance Movement and Blackberry Smoke, these lot are "fist-swinging, riot-starting, girlfriend-stealing, punch-in-the-face" typ...view item »

The Eye of Time
Acoustic

Ready for the winter yet? Well the nights are starting to draw in so you’d better start getting prepared. This album could be a perfect one to huddle round the fire to. The premise is simple, it mainly consists of very pleasant rolling piano chords, joined at times by a weeping cello. It doesn’t approach the majesty of your ...view item »

Sten Sandell & Paal Nilssen-Love
Jacana

The best improvisors are the ones that seem to invent and uninvent their instruments right in front of your eyes and ears. Swedish pianist Sten Sandell and Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love are two musical champions with a long experience of doing exactly that. Jacana, the latest in Rune Grammofon’s occasional series of unusual duo combi...view item »

UltraMantis Black
UltraMantis Black

Meetings between music and professional wrestling haven't historically yielded credible results, hitting a nadir a couple of decades ago with the Wrestlemania song (link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv_hYvj_g3w ) but here's Chikara wrestler Ultram...view item »

Phoneys & The Freaks
Phoneys & The Freaks EP

There’s a school of thought that suggests that Oasis were never the same after Bonehead left. I’d trace it further back, perhaps to Tony Carroll’s departure. The press release proudly states that this is the only release by an Oasis member which coincides with the 20th Ann...view item »

The Fugitives
Everything Will Happen

Vancouver’s news and entertainment website Georgia Straight once described The Fugitives as “the missing link between Leonard Cohen and the Pogues”. Formed by the eclectically talented Brendan McLeod (a award winning novelist and former Canadian SLAM poetry champion) and Adrian Glynn (a critically acclaimed actor most recently ...view item »

Devon Williams
Gilding The Lily

Former Osker vocalist Devon Williams has brought out album number three of his ambitious soft-pop business on Slumberland. It's a finely crafted blend of different types of music with -pop suffixes; power pop, indie pop, psych pop and jangle pop. Pretty much everything but punk-pop. Williams has a likeable voice and the songs are sometimes sli...view item »

Cold Name
Eat Your Hand

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 »

Metrist
The People Without

3rd outing from this solid new techno label from London based artist 'PRIS'.The People Without can only be described as a body of work that seamlessly showcases the artists attention to detail and knowledge of sound design and texture. The People Without as a whole takes the listener on a journey that is at times eerily b...view item »

Savagen
Practically Educated

Darkfloor Sound presents their 4th release. Scottish duo Savagen mark their debut with their five track 'Practically Educated' EP.  Feedback: Surgeon (Downwards, Rinse FM, Tresor) "I really like the weird 'Wound Up Tight' track on there." AnD (Inner Surface Music, Electric Deluxe, Ann Aimee) "new...view item »

Cocktails
Adult Life

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. This is where the San Francisco quintet's debut LP Adult Life resides. Gone is the...view item »


Earwax Volume One

Dirty, grotty yet wholesomely uplifting,  Earwax Volume One is a fine mesh of beats and samples to dive into. Featuring the likes of Odd Nosdam, Michael J Collins and Ceschi, it’s a funkily versatile introduction to the unique aesthetics of the US spanning Filthy Broke label....view item »

Rashomon
The Cameraman ́s Revenge

We've got a couple of fascinating treats from Cineploit this week, the first of which is this LP by Rashomon, the movie-themed solo project of Matt Thompson, who also plays in the bands Zoltan and Cremator. On this LP (and accompanying DVD) he has created scores for two short films by...view item »

Mirko
Blank Slate 004

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. These four tunes slip n slide around all the frequencies, from the sub-centric "Bergstrom" to the tripped out funk of "Ekaterina" on the A. On the flip he darkens the mood with t...view item »

Bombadil
Tarpits and Canyonlands

Right, well the vinyl of this looks lovely  - its kind of big  - what could possibly be in it? 14 art prints that's what AND a record. I don’t want to open it and spoil it for anyone so I’m listening to a few tracks on good old Youtube. I guess its in the modern/nu folk bracket but its all done with a clattery sense...view item »

Woody McBride

4 slick vintage acid slabs (produced '93-'94) by this Midwest 303 ruler. Pasture's Star Route previously unreleased on vinyl.

SEIROM
And The Light Will Swallow Everything

SEIROM is M.C. De Jong. And The Light Will Swallow Everything marks a departure from De Jong’s usual desolate and bleak work, this time he has created something that is bright and glorious, 4AD-ish and cinematic by using elements of shoegaze, post-rock and black metal. And The Light Will Sw...view item »

Klaxons
Love Frequency

I bloody loved that Mercury-winning Klaxons album. I don't know why, I never exactly listened to it much soon after release. Then they had a record with a "catstronaut" on the cover that sold like a bag of greased up adjustable cardboard spanners. Good picture though. These day-glo fools are back and musically they've regressed beyond pop parody...view item »

Relay
Untitled 1-3

Guy Brewer is here with his Relay guise, after recording under his Shifted name for past releases this is more of a minimal dance-friendly couple of tracks. Side-A is all bubbling synths and shuffling hi-hats which certainly gets my feet tapping. Side-B (don’t forget to change from 45rpm to 33 kids!) an...view item »

RE // LC (Clouds vs Papers)
BROS005

Neck deep in it with RE // LC (Clouds vs Papers). BROS005 is another set of collaborations from the Brothers label. The A side is a straight groover, packed with lasers, grainy interludes and deep percussive stimulation. The B side floats you along with reassuring synths before dropping you back into...view item »

Gentle Friendly
KAUA'I O'O A'A

The ghost of Animal Collective looms large over a large majority of modern groups. Here is another. Now onto their second record having transferred from Upset the Rhythm to Fat Cat, they are going to have to win me over with tunes as the first few minutes reveals enough annoying noises to make you go runni...view item »

Giving Up
(Peace Sign / Frown Face)

This is the second new one from Sophomore Lounge I’ve reviewed today, this time from a band called Giving Up, who I know nothing about. This is a pretty sweet package - massive and very cute screenprinted poster, little hand-stitched riso-printed photo booklet, download card, lyric ...view item »

Angel
Terra Null.

The fourth release by Angel for Editions Mego expands upon their singular combination of electronics, traditional instrumentation and extended technique. The musical reduction & simplicity of Terra Null. is a beautiful and brooding statement on cultural darwinism. At a time when the dominance of capital and greed blanket our world in a singu...view item »

Alan Licht & Brian Chase
We Thought We Could Do Anything

Noisy guitarist Alan Licht teams up with Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase here for an obnoxiously crunchy LP of blazing jazz rock improvisations and feverish noise experiments. On the first side is '18:12' (presumably the length of the track, since it takes up the whole ...view item »


Clan Destine Records Compilation

The Clandestine Records compilation is really good!! It's a scratchy lo-fi offering with a less is more approach. It comes with a little fanzine which is roughly printed, and tells you info about the bands. This was a joy to listen to... all the songs and bands are all over the shop, there are many different recording techniques, ideas and subject ...view item »

Bobby B
History / So True

A moody pair of deep house numbers from Bobby B. After a couple of EPs on 100% Silk as Bobby Browser, Andre Ferreira showcases his deft touch with these blissed-out tracks. A subtle nod to Detroit and an underlying California warmth provide the two poles of this release. The second 12” features intriguing remixes from ...view item »

Eggs, Eggs
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. A spoken word cacophony on this two track album creates a frenetic, uncomfortable sound reminiscent of a contemporary take on Captain Beefheart ...view item »

Blacksmif
My Own Blood

Blacksmif is wearing his heart on his sleeve on this one. My Own Blood is the enigmatic Londoners newest single release. Rooted around a gently anguished vocal about self-confessed 'fucked up' family issues, it slowly builds with ethereal synths and minimal housey percussion. Out on 12" vinyl from RAMP....view item »

Kelis
Rumble (Actress Sixinium Bootleg Mix)

The worlds of food and avant garde music collide with this remix of Kelis by electronic mad man Actress. This is the sort of thing that excites me. A relatively mainstream artist who is edging towards the avant garde as it is,  being picked apart and re-assembled by an undergroun...view item »

Pulse Emitter
Crater Lake

Daryl “Pulse Emitter” Groetsch returns this week with more of his cosmic synth meanderings, and y’all have probably long since realised that he’s got some of the peaciest peace vibes on the scene, and if so you’ve got a fairly solid idea of what this album sounds like. This is a concept record of sorts - Groetsch wa...view item »

Cleared
Drown

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. After starting out with a passage which is certainly guitar sounds, they drift into a kind of dystopian ambience that is both deeply...view item »

Two Wings
A Wake

Always happy to hear a 12 string as there is on opener 'Peace-Fear' but this lot are steeped in the folk tradition having had backgrounds in Scatter and Trembling Bells amongst others. You are also going to struggle with singer Hanna Tuullikki's voice unless you are a dog, i...view item »

Ortolan
Covered In Black

On Sounds Familyre, the label run by Daniel Smith the mostly bonkers leader of Danielson. Its a nice suprise to hear a lush sounding album of '60's influenced acoustic pop as the only video of them I could find on that thing we call the internet showed three or four girls clawing at a rather worried looking pian...view item »

Ryan Russell
Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham

Ma Turner
ZOZ

For my money Louisville's Sophomore Lounge surprise and delight more consistently with their weirdo indie rock discoveries than any comparable DIY label active today.

Ahhhh, fuzz. Not to complain about my lot in life or anything but Perfect Pussy 7" aside I've not heard enough distorted guitars this week...until now!

FaltyDL
Power

Falty DL (a.k.a Drew Lustman) hits us with a two newies on Swamp 81. Can’t say I’m a big fan and I recall ‘Hardcourage’ being particularly dad sounding. ‘Huff & Puff Bruk’ is a smoky jazz meets breakbeat affair making use of trumpet samples and subtle beat programming. It’s a crisp, modern outing tha...view item »

Ex-Cult
Midnight Passenger

Grimy psych-garage post-punks Ex-Cult are back this week with the follow up to 2012's self-titled, Ty Segall-produced debut. The garage rock wunderkind isn't twiddling the knobs this time but 'Midnight Passenger' is nonetheless a shuddering juggernaut of slamming repeato rhythms and shattered-glass guitar....view item »

Brett
Brett

Imagine calling a band Brett. Just imagine. Out of Washington (DC not Tyne and Wear) they peddle an in-vogue style of 80’s influenced post chillwave pop. Opener “Chalon’ sounds like Small Black interpreting Heart’s ‘These Dreams’, it has a...view item »

Tom Williams & The Boat

Got a CD of pedestrian blues rock business here from Tom Williams & the Boat. It appears to have angered our post-it sprinkling stockroom goblin who simply says "Bluesy R6 rock, Gomez meets oh fuck". Gomez is a fair comparison, as are Razorlight in the...view item »

Pulling Out The Light
Radiant Color

Two sides... erm obviously as it’s a tape. The first side ‘Light’ is not quite as fluffy as the title suggests. An unnerving sluggish heartbeat drum machine thud is the pulse which is the backbone of zingy live jammed sounding analogue synth explorations. Over on ‘Dark’ things take a similar path, sans the drum puls...view item »

Oootini
Sample​/​Hold

Further Records aren’t dishing out much info on their latest batch of tapes which is all good because I read so much bullshit hyperbole press releases it almost puts me off listening to stuff. You can preview the tapes in full over on the labels Bandcamp page so they’re really letting the audio s...view item »

Secret Cities
Walk Me Home

After nine long years of making music together, Secret Cities have finally made an album with all three of them in the same room. 'Walk Me Home' is a gentle bit of indie rock with boy/girl vocals and a chameleon-esque changeability, although the songs are without exception smooth and pleasant. Sometimes they're opting for windswept ...view item »

Principles Of Geometry
Streamsters

A 12” vinyl from Principles of Geometry, here we have the single Streamsters, a lush '80s synth tune which flirts with soul through the vocals of 1970s/80s duo the Alessi Brothers, and it even breaks into some kind of sonic trance music with those glistening synths building ever higher.

Marques Toliver
Land Of CanAan

Vocalist, violinist and multi-instrumentalist Marques Toliver is good at everything. And really good looking as well. Discovered busking in London, the young Floridian has been named 'Adele's favourite new artist' and had stunning reviews in The Guardian and Dazed and Confused. Part pop, part classical, and politically motivated. Available on do...view item »

Night Moves
Colored Emotions

Minneapolis three-piece Night Moves' debut release on Domino Records is bluesy, wholesome Americana with a psychedelic soundscape twist. The band gained prominence in their native town by releasing this for free on Bandcamp, the brilliant 'Headlights' in particular proved a live smash and the band are gearing up for some serious recognition.

We Cut Corners

Sleep Kit
Sleep Kit

This is sounding good, its a one sided 12" by these German noiseniks onto which they manage to cram five tracks. Taking their principal cue from Sonic Youth it has all those screwdriver-in-the-guitar wierdly tuned things but married to a plaintive vocal which comes across more Jawbre...view item »

TEEN
The Way and Color

I seem to remember hearing TEEN's debut album a year or two back and being fairly underwhelmed by their somewhat lo-fi multi-personality pop. Now they're back with a second album and 'The Way And Color' sounds like a whole different band, with slick, crisp production underpinning a series of confident, playful and punchy doses of future-pop. Eve...view item »

Kirk Degiorgio
Sambatek - Album Sampler

Far Out Recordings releases this 12” of three tracks from Kirk Degiorgio’s ‘Sambatek’ album from last year, the techno legend showcases his talents here with the epic detroit house stomper ‘Prazeres’ and it’s squelchy synth line. The B-side has a completely different flavour though with a Brazili...view item »

Blue Angel Lounge
A Sea Of Trees

Here's the latest offering on Brian Jonestown honcho Anton Newcombe's A Records, the third album by The Blue Angel Lounge.

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Live On Planet Earth

The Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is one of Alien Transistor’s craziest and biggest acts, always going their own path, somehow defining a route between the 18 of them.

Liz Green

Charming folky Manc songstress Liz Green is back with her difficult second album, after her well received debut 'O, Devotion'.

It's quite a varied col...view item »

Here's the debut 12" from Standard Planets, a London trio who have enlisted the services of legendary kosmische trailblazer and former Scorpions drummer Harald Grosskopf.

The Alvaret Ensemble
Skeylja

A collaboration between Dutch Frysians and Icelanders, Skeylja is a soft, haunting collection of songs that all seem to ooze the greyness of the North Sea.
