Laurie Spiegel
The Expanding Universe

A very weird coincidence occurred a couple of months back that sorta freaked me out a little. I'd been recently listening to a compilation called ‘Women In Electronic Music’ and heard a track called ‘Appalachian Grove I’ by Laurie Spiegel. I had heard some of her music previously but not this track and so I dec...view item »

Mike Cooper
White Shadows In The South Seas

Mike Cooper has lived a long and interesting life, but the septuagenarian shows no signs of slowing by the evidence of this delightful collection of delightfully weird, restless concrete exotica which is massaging my ears as I type. It’s a difficult album to describe because it spans so many styles over ...view item »

Cindytalk
A Life Is Everywhere

I intentionally have not read a single word about this record before listening to it as I didn’t want any spiel to subconsciously tarnish or mould my listening experience. If it said it was about frogs playing snooker I’d be stuck with it in my head. I like to take this kind of stuff in on my own terms. I recommend you do the same. H...view item »

UUUU
s/t

The near-ungooglable UUUU follow up last year’s s/t (not a self-titled record) with this year’s s/t (not a self-titled record). For their latest trick the Coil/Wire/Tomaga supergroup turn in two side-long pieces of avant-rock. There is a dark psyche...view item »

Hecker manipulates their source sounds (strings, woodwinds, percussion) and re-s...view item »

Francis Plagne
Moss Trumpet

Aside from inducing a pleasant image and being a delightful pairing of words, “moss trumpet” rather well describes much of the beguiling, timeless-sounding material of this release by genredextrous Melbourne artist Francis Plagne. Haunting, droning brass finds itself accompanied by all sorts of soft, ruffled textures...view item »

The Necks
Body

You know how the Necks do. Wake up. Get the coffee on. Simultaneously improvise instrumental gold. Another day. The wonderful and surprisingly dense Unfold was their last record and it came out on LP; now in typical Necks fashion they're releasing a CD only called Body, relying on the u...view item »

Jean Cohen-Solal
Captain Tarthopom

On the cover of his first album Flutes Libres, Jean Cohen-Solal boldly declared that ‘nothing can stop a flautist’. While that statement may be up for debate, Cohen-Solal’s 1973 sophomore LP Captain Tarthopom goes about making a compelling case for the humble flute. He coaxes a great range of ...view item »

Derek Bailey & Jamie Muir

CLPPNG

Fucking weird one this. It got missed last week, possibly because it's a slightly abrasive, startling and forward thinking hip-hop album.

Bons
Gras H'utsi

This is a wonderful oddity from Bons, combining abstract folk instrumentation with electronics, sampling and largely hand based percussive elements.
