Goat
Requiem

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

Colourful Scandinavian psychedelic crew Goat are back with their third album 'Requiem' which the be-robed psych-sters claim is going to be their 'folk' opus. We'll wait to see on that but in an age of internet transparency, Goat manage to keep a cloaked mystery to their movements which of course makes them way more fascinating than the Twitter twiddlers that pass for many modern rock groups.   …view full details.

Polypores
The Fialka Transmissions

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

Remember when everything was all about soundtracks for films that don't exist? Well that's still going on and on this latest release on the ever collectable Polytechnic Youth, Preston resident Stephen James Buckley presents science fiction influenced vignettes that sound like John Carpenter and italo-house filtered through a broken intercom. Will probably sell out before I've written this last senten.....…view full details.

Thee Oh Sees
A Weird Exits

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Didn’t Thee Oh Sees split up a year or so ago? I’m pretty sure they did, but it obviously didn’t last long, because they are back back back with a new album! I guess John Dwyer just couldn’t hold the garage-rock energy back any longer. A Weird Exits is extra-rhythmic (two drummers) and extra-hypnotising: it's also spread across 2 LPs, with the D-side containing an etching. On Dwyer’s own Castle Face impr…view full details.

The Avalanches
Since I Left You

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

8/10 according to our Phil

The Avalanches are about to get absolutely enormous with their new single which is destined to chart as it's been caned to death on the radio and MTV. It's a 70's flute tastic affair with a Motowny type vocals thing happening. Since I Left You annoyed the hell out of me at first but I have warmed to it's ample charms…view full details.

Floating Points
Kuiper

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

8/10 according to our Jamie

Two gorgeous, expansive, synth and full band electronic jams from Sam Shepherd. He wrote the tracks on this record at the start of the ‘Elaenia’ LP sessions, only later when performing live and kindling an interest in a band setting and freeform experimentation did the seed for this record become sown. On ‘Kuiper’, the stage is set with bubbling electronic oscillations f…view full details.

Piano Magic
Disaffected

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

8/10 according to our Brian

Brian's incisive review from back in the day. Don't worry we'll re-review in time.  Piano Magic have a new CD out on Green UFO's. 11 tracks long. Sounds really good but I'm sorry we're running out of time. All you lot adore these cult post rock goths to bits so truly, how can I do perfectio…view full details.

epic45
Drakelow EP

37 people love me. Be the 38th...

9/10 according to our Brian

This was a bit of a milestone in the E45 back catalogue as it centred greatly on their instrumental electronica constructing capabilities and much less on the chiming pastoral post-rock they won their fan-base with. I'd say if you like drone, glitch, minimal composition and ambient electronic styles this will probably be the E45 record for you. It is certain…view full details.

Belly
Star

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

9/10 according to The Doc (customer) on

Great to see this one being reissued on vinyl after all these years. Tanya Donnelly has been an alt-rock staple for nigh-on thirty years now, featuring in Throwing Muses, the Breeders and Belly (which is a hell of a CV, when you think about it), as well as releasing solo records - albeit of varying quality - in more recent times. Star is well up there with her best work - starts dark with a cou…view full details.

Pan Sonic
Atomin Paluu

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

This right here represents the final recordings of Finnish heavyweights Pan Sonic! Suitably for a group with such a brutalist sound, they were commissioned to soundtrack a documentary about building a nuclear power plant: construction recordings are integrated into Vainio and Vaisanen’s harsh digital structures, with award-winning results! Atomin Paluu is out on Blast First Petite.…view full details.

The Cult Of Dom Keller
Goodbye To The Light

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

Filling the footsteps of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Swans with their amplifier-worship, The Cult of Dom Keller only care about sounding like a huge lumbering stone giant. If ever there was a fitting title to their album, it would be Goodbye to the Light, because their sound is so massive it will block out the sun.…view full details.

New Order
People On The High Line

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

Here we have a 7” shaped picture disc of a Richard X and Claptone remix of New Order’s People on the High Line, a 12” white vinyl of the Claptone remix with a download code for the full remix package or a CD with that full package on it, including mixes by Claptone, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Hybrid, Planet Funk and Richard X. Enough to sink your teeth into there.    …view full details.

Peter Michael Hamel
Colours of Time re-interpreted by Wolfgang Voigt & Deepchord

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

Peter Michael Hamel produced his masterwork Colours Of Time in 1980: it's a spiralling piece of space-synth ambience that still holds great weight today. Now it gets re-interpreted by 2 premium modern producers who both know their way around electronic ambient sounds: Deepchord and Wolfgang Voigt, with one side of vinyl each. On Astral Industries.…view full details.

Mike & Rich
Expert Knob Twiddlers

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Mike & Rich is Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) and Richard D. James (aka Aphex Twin): you can see the pair of them grinning away on the cover there. This material dates from the mid-90’s and the approach is playful: fun-time groovy electronics as well as the beat-mangling blasts you might expect. This 2CD or 3LP reissue of Expert Knob Twiddlers even has some bonus tracks and alternate vers…view full details.

The KVB
Of Desire

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

8/10 according to our Robin

When he’s not tweeting swears at injustices, Geoff Barrow is putting out music, and you’d better believe he likes the KVB, a prolific duo who themselves are partial to synths, propulsion and talk-whispering. Their last record, ‘Mirror Being’, was a tone poem of taut industrial beats and metallic ambience, though listening to ‘Of Desire’ I almost definitely fe…view full details.

Concretism
Electricity

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

Concretism's Chris Sharp has got the whole aesthetic just right on his releases. His brand of vintage '70s inspired electronica sits perfectly with the concrete-grey of the sleeves and the imagery of concrete and pylons. Being a pylon buff myself I'm very pleased to see a fine example of one outside Tilbury power station adorn the sleeve of this compilation of previously unissued tracks. …view full details.

Vendor Refill
Sysreq EP

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

9/10 according to our Phil

More joy now. Fresh in from America is a brand new 12" by Vendor Refill which is the chap from Weevil on a sexy new label called Coredump Records. Coming up on the label is a Bit Meddler 12", Proem 12" etc... Looks like quality and if it's anything like this 12" I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.…view full details.

White Hills / RMFTM
Split Single No. 8

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

7/10 according to our Robin

It’s the White Hills, and then it's RMTFM! They’re in the Fuzz “Club”, by the way. I imagine such a club is kind of the distorted version of Mensa, in that you get welcomed into the fold, congratulated on your sonic intelligence and then everyone just sits around thinking about how much better at fuzz they are than everyone else. In actuality this dual team are very…view full details.

Various
Sky Girl

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

I'm not going to be able to sway you into purchasing this LP by listing its big names. There are none. Instead this is a superbly curated compilation of lesser known limited run records and private press recordings mainly in a lo-fi pop folk vein made between 1961 and 1991. What makes the album an essential purchase is that the curators have located some brilliant tracks that you would never ha…view full details.

Lykke Li
Get Some

19 people love me. Be the 20th...

8/10 according to our Li'l Biz

Lykke Li Get's Some on this the taster single from her much anticipated second album released later this year. Assisted again by Bjorn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn & John) Li's 80's pop sound is a bold as ever. 'Get Some' lays down a lively Adam and the Ants' 'army of drums' style back-beat that provides a militant rhythm to hang a good pop song on. It's pretty much a glam stomper in every resp…view full details.

Sennen
First Light

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Sennen have been going for absolutely ages (2002 in fact  - years before most people were born). The fact that they took their name from a Ride song should give you a ball park idea of where they are coming from. They are shoegaze survivors, playing the kind of music they love whether it is flavour of the month or not. Luckily for them shoegaze is in vogue so wha…view full details.

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma & Felicia Atkinson
Comme Un Seul Narcisse

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

8/10 according to our Jamie

In which Alpine sound artist Felicia Atkinson and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, in field-recordist mode, weave together sounds culled from the city and the mountains to produce a wondrous tapestry. Although the tapping of pipes / scraping of bottles and juxtaposition of crying gull set against a wall of scratchy white noise did have me scratching my head for a few seconds.  Atkinson and Led…view full details.

Car Seat Headrest
Teens of Denial

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Fitting, in the end, that this record was pulled back because of a sample. Car Seat Headrest and co. failed to beat down the machiavellian grump Ric Ocasek, whose preservation of some Cars figure from a long time ago drove Merge to a loss of thirty odd K, and ‘Teens of Denial’ now appears without the offending homage and/or plagiarism. Ocasek is a fool, though: he can’t stop t…view full details.

Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool

56 people love me. Be the 57th...

9/10 according to our Robin

Sing a song of sixpence that goes… Radiiiiiioooooooheaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad” -- Thom Yorke. At this point, Radiohead have exhausted being Radiohead. By their seventh album they were just making rock albums, man; by their eighth being inaccessible was no longer remarkable. The biggest Good Rock Band on the planet have lived out …view full details.

BADBADNOTGOOD
IV

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

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.

MJ Guider
Precious Systems

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

8/10 according to our Jamie

MJ Guider is Melissa Guion’s hazy, pastoral electronica project. ‘Precious Systems’, she states, is “inspired and influenced by the landscape in and near New Orleans, particularly the juxtaposition of the natural with industrial and commercial constructs as they reflect life here.” So naturally, opening track ‘Lit Negative’ aurally reflects a moonscape.…view full details.

Aphex Twin
Cheetah

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

6/10 according to our Laurie

Aphex Twin, the notorious cheater himself, has successfully vintage-synthed the money out of your pockets. No, this LP does not have 15-note polyphony, and as we all already know, the D James man can make music on anything, no matter how badly respected or obscure. He’ll find a way. So it’s not really surprising that the god of music machines tackled a notoriously difficult-to-use o…view full details.

Coil
The Ape of Naples

16 people love me. Be the 17th...

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on 14th June 2016

The Ape of Naples is a brilliant eulogy for the too-early-passed John Balance, the Coil album to cap the 25 or so years that Balance and Peter Christopherson made beautiful (or noisy, or dangerous) music together. Mostly a quiet, meditative affair, it's an album that sums up the group's career nicely, alternately revisiting the past with takes on "Teenage Lightning" and "Amethyst Deceivers". The circumstances of John Balance's death were regrettable -- still, his musical career speaks for itself…view full details.

Ultimate Painting
Dusk

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been recorded onto tape in one of their flats.  Expect alluringly lush guitar pop and stellar songwriting chops. …view full details.

The Handsome Family
Unseen

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The Handsome Family are an alt. country/Americana duo made up of husband and wife Brett and Rennie Sparks. They have been plying their trade since the early ‘90s to a committed fanbase. Unseen is their tenth album and is the first new material since the band had massive, and it has to be said, unexpected success (35 million streams on Spotify!!) with their song Far From Any Road which was used as the theme song for cult  2014 TV show True Dete…view full details.

Metronomy
Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe)

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

The great thing about Metronomy is that their career is a journey....you don't quite get the same thing each time round. This, their remarkably titled debut, shows a sound miles away from the pleasant pop of 'Love Letters'. It's wild electronica with fuzzy guitar riffs and nary a vocal in sight. First time on vinyl from this previously much sought after artefact.  …view full details.

Jack White
Lazaretto

28 people love me. Be the 29th...

6/10 according to our Clinton

Bow your heads and curtsy, here is Sir Jack White III with his second solo opus. Its not, as you might think on first glance, the Crow soundtrack, look closer and there he is on the sleeve sprawled in a throne he’s made out of some stone remnants he found as his local garden centre. I’ve always adhered to the less is more theory with Jack White in that his music had more imp…view full details.

Goat
I Sing in Silence

12 people love me. Be the 13th...

7/10 according to our Robin

Here’s that band who for all intents and purposes have spent their career in sanitation, cleaning their [most mysterious] noise music ‘til it was wiped clean and became mere psych pop. Are you not slightly less entertained?! With its sideways guitar twang, lethargically hummed lyrics, twisted hand percussion and fair-measure flute, “I Sing In Silence&rdqu…view full details.

Karen Gwyer
Kiki The Wormhole

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

9/10 according to our Laurie

Here it is, finally, after thousands of rejected test pressings, Gwyer’s tape in vinyl form courtesy of a dastardly union of Opal Tapes and Public House Recordings. Truth is, and I’m not blowing any of my own brass instruments here, but I enjoyed this record so much that I didn’t want it to forever be listened to on smartphones, so suggested to Phil that this should be the nex…view full details.

Kreng

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Who’s ready for another round of Fake The Soundtrack Review? Here I am, woefully ill-informed on the content and narrative of film thing ‘Camino’: judging on the particular second of Kreng’s music I’m currently intaking, I imagine it’s about an old dude who has to fix up his mate’s organ, but mate in question keeps knocking on the door and asking if it&…view full details.

The Avalanches
Wildflower

12 people love me. Be the 13th...

8/10 according to The Doc (customer) on

I have to admit I felt like a right old bugger when I realised it was sixteen years since their debut release Since I Left You, as I remember absolutely caning it in my uni days and I hadn't realised it had been so long. Anyone who's ever heard the first record will have a fairly good idea what to expect here - there's a beguiling mix of deep disco grooves and hip-hop beats, coupled with more samples that you can shake a stick at and a big dollop of bona fide lunacy thrown in for good measure…view full details.

Bwana
The Capsule's Pride

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

Bwana is that oh-so-common of beast; a Berlin-based techno producer. His beats, however are somewhat more unusual. Having initially gathered accolade after having been discovered as a free download on the dark web, Capsule’s Pride is now released on vinyl for the first time. It takes inspiration from the 1988 anime, Akira, with all the sounds coming as samples from the film. As such Bwana’s techno combines traditional Japanese fol…view full details.

Yes the above is celebrating the release of a brand new whiskey which the words absolutely and excited just don't go anywhere near to describing how I feel about it. One of my fave songs of last year and it's out in vinyl for the 1st time. 1000 copies in a lovely colour pic sleeve each with a label discography inside. So it's a 7" by Noonday U…view full details.

Suicide
Suicide

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

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

The Suicide self titled debut is an unique and powerful album especially for 1977. Though, you will find no electric guitars or drums here, Suicide comes off just as powerful. A reliance on synth was unique for the era but Suicide pull it off especially well, proving that punk was more about attitude and concern than aesthetic. In this, Suicide prove to many of their image focused contemporaries what makes punk is the attitude and thus become even more punk and dangerous. Suicide was a produc…view full details.

Here’s a little Christmas treat for all you Tame Impala fans out there... This limited edition, one-sided 12” of their classic opening track from the gargantuan ‘Lonerism’ LP has had the remix treatment by DJ, producer and Phantasy label head Erol Alkan. Here he gives the track an acid house, trance-like flavour (or flava!). The …view full details.

To celebrate their first ever US tour, Uncle Acid drop a new single, and not just a new 7" with a song from their album, we've got new material here! They seem to have dropped the "& the Deadbeats" altogether here...in fact I've just noticed that they're referred to as "him" instead of "them" in the press release too. Have the rest of the band been fired? A quick cross reference says no, ju…view full details.

Suzanne Kraft
Talk From Home

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

As there are supposedly no women making good electronic music it has been up to men to take on female personas of late in order to equal things up a bit. The current vogue for female pseudonyms in this genre is getting a bit ridiculous and is pretty offensive to be honest. Here is another one. Suzanne Kraft is actually Diego Herrera who I apologise profusely to if he's not actually a man. …view full details.

Prins Thomas

9/10 according to Andy (customer) on

This is a fantastic collection of tunes from the eclectic maestro Prins Thomas. As a reflection of his sets it is a great document of the styles, moods and shifts in tempo he will treat his dancefloors to. There is something for everyone here, with many highlights. I have the triple vinyl version, which only has a fraction of the tracks on the cd version, but is still packed with aural treats. Brian Bennett, Young Marco & Kurt Vile are amongst the v…view full details.

I first listened to this record in my living room with Christmas lights on as me and my housemates independently read a one-hundred-and-seventy-pages long .pdf about the lore of Bloodborne. It did the trick. It’s rare that I’m infatuated with a record released under the Blackest Ever Black imprint but this gorgeous and unflinching record is everything that setting suggests: it&rsquo…view full details.

Burnt Hills

Ten-piece psych-punk weirdos Burnt Hills are well known for scarcely ever venturing out of their basement. It does happen though, and Live at The Low Beat captures just such an occasion. With a full 6 guitars in the line-up, naturally things get heavy and cosmic very quickly. Limited edition of 250 LP copies, on Golden Lab.…view full details.

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The discrepancy between Mark E Smith's public demeanour (see recent Channel 4 interview) and the music he produces is rather wild.  Actually, the fact that he manages to make any music at all is quite an achievement. Having said that I’m personally not totally sold on his most recent records. I feel some of the spark and invention has gone but would…view full details.

Elliott Power
Once Smitten

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Once Smitten is the debut album from London native Elliott Power. The album explores the dark, hidden recesses of his hometown through the genre mashing of soul, trip-hop and UK bass music, recalling classic sounds that may have been heard on the Mo-Wax label in its heyday. Power is signed to the ambitious Marathon Artists, a label whose scope and vision suits him rather well. The album also features contributions from Dorian Lutz.…view full details.

Bursting with narrative, seeking out clarity in reprises, smoothing over existentialism with feedback, ruining pop songs that feel too standard to be the truth… this is, if you can believe it, Ian William Craig’s most chaotic record yet, one meandering its way away from a proper story while pining for the most typically art of things: an opener, a closer, and a whole middle for the…view full details.
