More Coil re-issues and this is from 1996 when  Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and John Balance were joined by Drew McDowall but rather than being the 'poochie' of the show, the new name helped the group take a left turn back to the more avant garde pursuits and experimental electronics. ...view item »

Annette Peacock
I'm The One

Absolutely bonkers but hugely ahead of its time sonic jazz exploration from Salvador Dali collaborator, moog pioneer and friend of Albert Ayler.

Ulver
Messe I.X – VI.X

Ulver has returned with a grandiose dose of dark orchestral bliss. I like this album much better than Wars of the Roses. It seems much more mature and thought out. It sounds more like Ulver. It's interesting because both albums are very sparse and ambient, but somehow this one is so much better. This album is very fluid; it sounds like one giant...view item »

Yoko Ono
Warzone

Warzone by 85 year-old Yoko Ono sees the avant-garde artist stripping back thirteen songs from her career between 1970-2009. The songs carried messages in their lyrics that seem all too relevant now.

Russell Haswell
Factual

When listening to Russell Haswell’s output I’m often given the impression that he primarily creates to fulfill his own personal sonic cravings.
