Sela
Anniversary

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

9/10 according to our Clinton on 30th May 2014

Following our policy of liking a record so much we bought the company, we've pressed up 200 vinyl copies of what we feel is one of the most unusual and innovative records of the past few years. 'Anniversary' by Sela was originally released on CD on the Japanese Flau imprint and sold out in a matter of days. Its disorientating blend of woozy hip-…view full details.

9/10 according to our Robin on 16th July 2015

Well of course we like it. But let’s talk about it. Sleaford Mods have actually been making records for years now, like the prolific crossover between a crusty band doing 7” splits, a rapper throwing archives onto DatPiff and, you know, the Fall. They have a good half dozen full le…view full details.

The Magical World of The Strands

10/10 according to our Clinton on 29th July 2015

It’s the moment I’ve been waiting for for months. A record so brilliant that I’m already preparing perfect conditions for myself pre-listen. I’m fed, I’m watered, I'm toileted and I’m sat in a comfortable position at my keyboard. Let’s go. So Michael Head has some history. He was in parping Liver…view full details.

180g yellow coloured vinyl reissue LP on 'a' Recordings. Includes download code for 'Sounds Of Confusion'. Thank God For Mental Illness is the third album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. It was originally released in 1996. Their consistent quality and prolific nature is mind blowing enough, but when you realise that this album was recorded in one day for less than $18, you’ve just got to applaud their chops.…view full details.

La Monte Young / Marian Zazeela

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Marian Zazeela (*1940) and La Monte Young (*1935) are an artist couple from the United States who live and work together since 1962 and have ever since taken part in a multitude of projects too numerous to mention. It is far more than music both create as their repertoire also features installation art and paintings. But since our main focus is the music, we concentrate on their just reissued album named “The Black Record” from 196

9/10 according to our Robin on 17th July 2015

On his latest record, ‘Home For Lost Souls’, Richard Adams receives a snowflake on a plate of caviar and says “no thank you very much”. So begins the saddest album ever made. The ex-Hood and current Memory Drawings guitar cyborg …view full details.

Limited 10" on Deep Distance. Edition of 500 copies. This 10” is a Split between The Cult Of Free Love and The Wrestler. Both groups are all about the spacey atmospheres, with The Cult taking a komischey, sitar-led approach that sounds wonderful. The Wrestler meanwhile bring in thick kraut-rhythms to ascend to their peaks. Debut appearances for each by the way! …view full details.

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 27th March 2014

Yes its the Return of the Mac. This is Mac De Marco’s third full length record and its safe to say that if you like the first two then you are going to find plenty to swoon over here.  He’s long discarded the pitched down croon he used on the first side of the corking ‘Rock and Roll Nightclub’ debut and has adopted a…view full details.

BEAK / KAEB
Split EP

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 28th July 2015

Why bother finding a band to share a split 12” with when you can just reverse your name and do it all by yourselves. This is also a double B side and if you thought that meant all the songs were bad then you’ve got another thing coming. They are all good. On the first side Geoff Barrows's Beak do two swirly krauty almost…view full details.

Fatima Yamaha
What's A Girl To Do

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

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

12" on Dekmantel. Fatima Yamaha's "What's a Girl To Do" is an instantly recognisable earworm with its terse blinding light of a melody. The track, which slowly but sharply wades through simple keys and a weary drumbeat, was actually written by producer Bas Bron -- so, you know, yet another electronic dude using a woman's alias just because. Dekmantel now reissue the whole thing plus some other, equally chirply and synth-gliste…view full details.

If you are reading this please feedback it. It’s The Fuzz Club, friends, back to spoil us for the seventh time with another one of those slightly smaller inched but no less waxy records. This one brings together the culprits of much slow-roasting psych rock, the Myrrors, with the extremely fussy and uncompromisingly experimental Cult of Do…view full details.

William Basinski

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th July 2015

Tape looper to the stars William Basinski has been stripping away excess concept from his work since the rise of ‘The Disintegration Loops’, composing pieces that are important more for the sounds they make than for their process or history. ‘The Deluge’, however, finds him back with the stories: this record is thematical…view full details.

Kieron Hebden stretches himself past the average album/single/album format to create a record which comprises of two episodic tracks containing various shifts in mood. 'Morning' is most notable for a seemingly never ending sample of Bollywood star Lata Mangeshkar. It's a lovely sample but after its thousandth repeat you start to wonder whet…view full details.

Flying Saucer Attack
Instrumentals 2015

8/10 according to our Laurie on 15th July 2015

Returning after a sleepy 15 years is the noisewagon of David Pearce’s Flying Saucer Attack on Domino. I guess all the vaguely shoegazey '90's groups are getting bored of early retirements so why not make some more music? Because the world’s shoegaze quota is already full.

Human Program

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th July 2015

Sometimes you’ve gotta make it look like you’re doing something in a hurry. ‘Human Program’ is a busily scheduled slice of music in which a suspended ambient backdrop is filled with effects, synth extrapolations and pounding drums made on modulars. The blissful drone that predicates this album sounds nice, but Long Distan…view full details.

Ash Nav’s psychoactive stream of cosmic consciousness flows unabated, hitting a sun-scorched plateau of ecstatic intensity that’s rare by even their standards for this latest LP on VHF.

‘Vulnicura’ is so unconditionally painful. It is above and beyond the call of duty of any sad singer-songwriter album. It is a full consumption of heartbreak; an analysis of how to struggle with it, a treatise in feeling it, and an exhibition of the physical sound it makes.
