Rival Consoles
Persona

Lord Huron
Vide Noir

I hope Lord Huron are okay. Their new album Vide Noir, meaning 'empty black', is an indie folk communion with the void. Assuming the seasons continue their endless deferral it might be the ideal album to listen to this supposed 'spring'. Haunting but warm, Lord Huron are the ideal companion to face the darkn...view item »

Richard Hawley & Ollie Trevers
Funny Cow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

'Funny Cow' looks like it's going to be a great film. It stars Maxine Peake and is filmed in Saltaire. What could go wrong?

A fine collection to show off his dextrous ear for hypnotic sonics. Out on 12” vinyl from Boo...view item »

Controlled Death
Symphony For The Black Murder

If Symphony For The Black Murder is meant to be a pun on ‘Sympathy For The Devil’, then it’s an oblique one at best. Still, Controlled Death - a new proje...view item »
