Shellac
1000 Hurts

One of the greatest things about Shellac is their musical honesty; three guys playing brutal guitar, bass and drums with no frills or overdubs. They are the musical equivalent of being constantly pounded in the face by a metal press. 1000 Hurts is Shellac?s third album, and like it?s predecessors is beautifully packaged; the vinyl record ...view item »

Radiohead
OK Computer

What? This album isn't already reviewed? HOW? Basically it's hard to talk about this album briefly, Radiohead broke new ground in a big way with this truly their magnum opus. Tracks like "Street Spirit" and "Planet Telex" hinted at the coming of 'OK Computer', but no one would have expected that the pop-rockers who produced "Cree...view item »

Belong
Common Era

Vinyl and CD reissue of Belong's Common Era, the first long player to be released since the celebrated but underexposed October Language. This album retains the fuzzed out ambience but augments the gorgeous, Hecker-esque wooziness with a more song based, shoegaze approach, replete with drums and vocals....view item »

Death And Vanilla
Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing ...view item »

Dead Rabbits
Everything Is A Lie

Southampton shoegazers Dead Rabbits (that's Dead Rabbits UK, not to be confused with the metal band from Arizona) release this throwback effort, more than slightly reminiscent of Loop, Spacemen 3, etc. The band themselves describe it as "...the only honest thing you’ll hear in a world full of lies and hate." So probably worth investing in ...view item »

Message To Bears
Carved From Tides

Jerome Alexander AKA Message To Bears presents his fourth LP, a soothing collection of ambient/post-rock-ish pieces which serve as an appropriate backdrop for the following activities: 1) stargazing 2) rainy-day relaxation 3) driving through majestic countryside 4) my personal favourite: crying into a pillow. ...view item »

Robocobra Quartet
Music For All Occasions

Right melting pot going on here. The ludicrously named Robocobra Quartet are a mix of Polar Bear with spoken word and lyrical fury of Death Grips. A small group with a big sound with brass, synths and effects. Part Naked City jazz, part hip hop beats, all with a tongue in cheek ...view item »

Chasms
On The Legs of Love Purified

San Francisco duo Jess Labrador and Shannon Madden purge the stresses of being artists in almost hostile cities with My Bloody Valentine esque walls of sustained guitar chords that aren’t quite drones, with straight hitting drum programming all topped with subtle vocal harmonies that ...view item »

Thought Forms
Songs About Drowning

Thought Forms, one of Bristol’s finest experimental song outfits for many years now, release their third full-length album. Songs About Drowning, which features bonus bass player Jim Barr (of Portishead...view item »

FRET!
Killing Susan EP

Hoping to go pro as miseryguts, rocker trio Fret! get their hope-abandoned guitars, lazy day everyday drums and desperate vocals onto a slab of wax, hoping to bum out a few new listeners in the process. They sound good, their guitar tone extremely sadcore and their dingy, basement-fi production making for the kind of destitute punk record you ca...view item »

Aa
ZebrAa

Three different drummers appear on ZebrAa, drawn from throughout Aa’s career to date. So many drummers! That means that inventive percussion is at the heart of the record: electronics and vocals have plenty to add, but triple-drummer polyrhythms are damn hard to overshadow. Vinyl release on the Fire Talk label for...view item »

Daniel Land
In Love With A Ghost

Daniel Land has had a tough time of it since the breakup of his Modern Painters band, with health issues that almost knocked him out of music making altogether. But Land thought through, and has In Love With A Ghost to show for it, a richly-layered dream-pop record as strong as anything...view item »

Strobes
Brokespeak

Strobes are a band with serious pedigree when it comes to seriously complex music: the members have performed with Three Trapped Tigers, Troyka and Squarepusher no less. Their debut ...view item »

Broker
Quixota

Brighton boys Broker drop their second full-length album of tightly-wound mathed-up hardcore. Main geezer Duncan Harrison has a fierce howl on him, and the band clearly know their way around each other: plenty of Quixota’s tracks feature unpredictable breakdowns and prog-complex inversions. Well s...view item »

Tired Tape Machine
Sunshine, Maybe

I'm liking the sleeve. The lady on the left's dress is very my mums ironing board circa '74. It gives no indication of the music contained within, neither does Robin's review of their previous which references Stars of the Lid and Max Richter. This is nothing of the sort.&n...view item »

Motorpsycho
Angels and Daemons at Play

A massive stack of Motorpsycho for you to dig into! Angels and Daemons at Play has been released as a double LP and a series of three EPs, but this reissue of the late 90’s project includes all the original material, plus three discs of rarities, B-sides and live recordings. Christ, that’s six CD’s-wor...view item »

Votaries
Psychometry

Votaries sound like a band who fell into a space-drugs wormhole so deep that they’ve emerged with a permanent layer of early-90’s shoegaze-haze draped around every sound they make. On Psychometry they make this work massively to their advantage, with big thick drone-rock tunes to lose oneself in. Released by...view item »

Sonic Youth
Confusion is Sex

Your favourite uncle of noise rock, ok, maybe more like wisen parents, Sonic Youth’s 1983 album Confusion Is Sex is a dark backwards step into their more primitive state. Noisy, disjointed and clanky as hell. Guitars being destroyed for your listening pleasure. Repressed by Goofin’, good work guys. Yes. Just...view item »

Om
Variations On A Theme

OM's latest, Advaitic Songs has been getting tons of praise heaped on it, in the last year or so, with the general consensus of people agreeing that the album was a big maturing phase in the band’s sound. If that means their early albums were unsophisticated and nasty then call me a caveman, coz' I like 'em a hell of a lot more. I mean, do...view item »

Roy Montgomery
Q: Transient Global Amnesia

Roy Montgomery hasn’t released an album in over ten years, but now that he’s decided to make a return, he’s really going for it. Roy is now releasing an interlinked series of albums, titled R, M, H and Q. This fourth one, subtitled Transient Global Amnesi...view item »

Dadamah and The Pin Group member Roy Montgomery hasn’t released an album in over ten years, but now that he’s decided to make a return, he’s really going for it. Roy...view item »

My Invisible Friend
My Invisible Friend EP

Glorious! There’s driving noisy rock, hi-fidelity pop joy, speedy krautrock rhythms, and moment of discordant spaciness. Italian trio My Invisible Friend push all this together into long expansive tracks that push the 18 minute mark and fuse the walls of sound of My Bloody Valentine with the pace of ...view item »

Russian Circles
Enter

A dejected roast dinner from Chi-town fellas Russian Circles. Enter is getting the repress treatment, brimming with heavy post-rock sloggers and all the self-indulgent mathy guitar wankery you'd expect. I remember when this first came out in the mid-2000's along side bands like This Will Destroy You - it sounded a decad...view item »

Radian
On Dark Silent Off

Martin Brandlmayr (drums), Martin Siewart (guitar) and John Norman (bass) is Radian. Their curious 7-track offering, Scary Objects, sees the Austrian experimentalists explore a recorded collection of feedback, fiddlings and glitches before intricately melding soundbites in...view item »

E
E

E might reasonably be described as an alt-rock supergroup, being comprised of Thalia Zedek, Gavin McCarthy and Jason Sanford, who have experience in Come, Karate and Neptune respectively. Collaborative debut E manages t...view item »

People of the North
The Caul

More joyful noise from the ever-more sprawling activities of the Oneida family. People Of The North is the side project of that band’s Bobby Matador and drum powerhouse Kid Millions, and The Caul finds them diving once more into heavy minimal jams of immense power...view item »

Pop Threat
Scum - Redux / Remix

Pop Threat were a noisy fuzzy indie band from the early 2000's so split up after a 'drunken mess' of a gig. Therefore their one album slipped out unnoticed a few months later. Still thinking about all this, the band have gone back into the studio and remixed the tracks so that they can make peace with the past. The results have ...view item »

Sybarite
Waver The Absolute

Welcome to the first new work from the Sybarite project in a full decade. Waver The Absolute wastes no time in getting things moving again, jumping out with fat waves of static. Then we slip into a classic flurry of warm hazy dancing electronics to lose the mind and body in. Released by Temporary Residence: the vinyl ve...view item »

Civil Civic
The Test

With their first album since those heady days of 2011, this Melbourne duo have returned to the sort of cinematic electronic soundscapes that led 'Rules' to be such a hit. They have spent the last four years honing their particular craft, producing life affirming, immersive instrumental pieces with a vibrancy often not seen in the genre.  &n...view item »

Fvnerals
Wounds

We are living in a post-doom world, and Fvnerals are one of the leaders. Leaning further towards Earth-like territory, Wounds isn’t just heavy riffage, it’s a stark tonal landscape with a pitch black airiness that crosses over from depressive doom to dark ambient drone. Perfect stuff for lat...view item »

Xiu Xiu
Plays the Music of Twin Peaks

This is, disappointingly, not Jamie Stewart covering the music of recent indie pop band Twin Peaks; instead, he sinks deep into the waters of David Lynch's weirdo soap opera, interpreting his inappropriately sentimental and hilarious score with the usual Xiu Xiu magic: a kind of grotesque prettiness that would surely appeal to the Crazy Clo...view item »

Six By Seven
Six.By Seven

So here comes a new record by Six By Seven who have been around for a long time. Longer in fact than most people have been alive. Looks like the band have gone back to basics and recorded without any plug ins or computers in order to try to work in a similar manner to their heroes Neu or Can. If...view item »

Tangents
Stateless

Tangents are a restless group, always switching up to a new sound or dropping in unexpected elements in the middle of compositions. Jazz, electronica, post-rock, electro-acoustic improvisation and more besides all surface in the heady brew of Stateless. The vinyl edition of the album comes with an additional download of...view item »

Peptalk
Islet

With a history of playing with arty types such as Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono and Xiu Xiu you could think that Peptalk would be some kind of noise/art collective. Instead they draw on their love of exotica, dub, electronica and in particular the Bladerunner soundtrack to create their own world of highly original yet highly accessible beca...view item »

Northerner
I Am On Your Side

The Clint home stereo is the most fickle of mistresses with its Roman Abramovich style approach to hiring and firing each hopeful release daring to kneel before its crown. One disc that has managed to escape its wrath over the past month or so has been this, the excellent third album from...view item »

The Moles
Flashbacks and Dream Sequences : The Story of The Moles

Formed by singer/songwriter Richard Davies in Sydney, Australia at the end of the 1980s, The Moles released two EPs and one full-length album before relocating to New York to release two singles. The band then moved to London and broke up despite favourable reviews from the British music press. The band reformed...view item »

Syndrome
Forever And A Day

Mathieu Vandekerckhove plays in the group Amenra, but he also has a lonely and intimate solo project: Syndrome. Forever And A Day is like post-rock music with the grand climaxes taken out and replaced with an uneasy droning ambient aesthetic. It feels bleak, but deep down it could be so...view item »

Eros and The Eschaton
Weight Of Matter

On ‘Weight of the Matter’, Eros and The Eschaton infuse shoegaze, psych and tropicalia into their broiling, punchy bowl of pop. Then they let it simmer. The crazy horses. It can’t have been easy for them to avoid making a mess; let’s hope all those flavours don’t overload it. Vinyl LP and C...view item »

True Widow
Avvolgere

Emotive and kindly metal tunes from True Widow, whose democratic sound gives a look into the wizened guitar tone of Earth, the slowcore patience and swell harmonies of acts like Low and the riffology of some of yer louder shoegaze favourites. Avvolgere come...view item »

Crippled Black Phoenix
Bronze

Crippled Black Phoenix return with another heavy record of faded glamour and melancholy prog / post-rock / metal constructions. Varying line-ups mean a broad sound-range across the span of the album. Bronze is available in a plethora of formats: regular CD, deluxe CD with bonus tracks, and three different colours of dou...view item »

Wrekmeister Harmonies
Light Falls

Wreckmeister Harmonies mix drone, neo-classical, outrock and extreme metal. They are led by JR Robinson. Essentially a duo, Esther Robinson makes up the other half. Their new album Light Falls features a bunch of interesting guests including Thierry Amar, Sophie Trudeau and Gregory Herzog from Godspeed! You Blac...view item »

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
Balance

Guadalajaran kraut/psyche-rock duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete manage to blow some of the cobwebs away, re-energise and bring grit back to the genre with Balance, literally. La Distinción sonically paints a world where Tarantino directed Austin Powers with big band psychedelic groove meeting mexican stand...view item »

Show Me The Body
Body War

Show Me The Body are bringing back old-school noise rock vibes, with obnoxious vocals, stop-start heavy rhythms and distortion a-go-go. The tracks feel like they have been dragged out of the dirt, but they still have a jerking groove to them. Full-length debut Body War is a vinyl release out on Loma Vista / Concord....view item »

The Dead C
Trouble

I should be able to just say “this is a new album from The Dead C” and you’d go and buy it straight away, but in case you need convincing… Trouble is a big fat double LP, calling to mind their classic Harsh 70’s Reality record in both size and sound. The Dead C ke...view item »

Lung Dart
As I Lay Drying

Lung Dart are Tim Clay and James Rapson. Using a huge range of field samples and youtube rips they create textured blocks of nostalgia. Sounding like Leyland Kirby making ballads, they play on the odd sense of isolation that comes from the youtube age. It’s loving, but str...view item »

Slushy Guts
Honey Is Not For The Mouth Of An Ass

Gleaming passed lo-fi, scoffing and laughing, and jumping headfirst into the no-fi pool Stephen Keane’s Slushy Guts project dabbles in a range of acoustic-folk-rock-noise. Recorded on cheap equipment and distorting vocals, production doesn’t really exist on this record, but that’s what makes it...view item »

Khompa
The Shape Of Drums To Come

Khompa is but one man: Davide Compagnoni, of Stearica. This is indeed The Shape Of Drums to come: the drums are wired up to an array of triggers and electronics, so that ...view item »

Teeth of The Sea
Highly Deadly Black Tarantula

Following on from their third album, 2014’s Master, Teeth Of The Sea return with Highly Deadly Black Tarantula - a pummelling workout that’s as aggressive as it is groovy. Equal parts post-rock scope and heavy metal ferocity, it’s the kind of album at which Teeth Of The Sea excel. Out on CD and vinyl L...view item »

Explosions In The Sky & David Wingo
Manglehorn: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

David Gordon Green’s new film Manglehorn comes with a soundtrack from a band often described as cinematic in their own right: Explosions In The Sky. With the help of film composer David Wingo, they have created some really shimmering atmospheres, using a lot of percussive textures...view item »

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Three: River Run Thee

River Run Thee is the third entry in Matana Roberts' so far incredible 12-part musical tapestry (as she called it for part two, "sound quilting") about civil rights and the history of creativity in America. Roberts' discipline is jazz, specifically avant compositions on saxophone, but, as implied with her invo...view item »

Wild Beasts
Present Tense

Oh God, dear God what have they done? Wild Beasts are a band who, after I’d completely dismissed their debut ‘Limbo Panto’ due to its carnival shrieking and roly poly cabaret operatics, I grew to love following their about turn towards a subtle and effective new take on pastoral British pop on their superb ‘Two Da...view item »

Roger Miller
Oh

Roger Miller took some time out from playing in the likes of Mission Of Burma and Destroy All Monsters back in 1988 to record Oh at home. It’s a damn good piece of solo weirdness, with experimental out-sounds and songcraft in equal measure. Out also includes Mille...view item »

Rattle
Rattle

Rattle are a magical double drums duo, somehow creating memorable, tuneful songs with carefully-schemed drum patterns and some vocals: rhythmic alchemy. Katherine and Theresa play in Kogumaza and Fists respectively, but this has to be their most impressive work....view item »

Marielle V Jakobsons
Star Core

The collaged ambient pop of Marielle V. Jakobsons draws on stilted sound art and fluid melodic movements, which made for a grand adventure on 'Glass Canyon'. On new record 'Star Core' she continues to build from the same elements -- processed violin, a bassy backbone and a myriad of synth tone -- while singing at ...view item »

Have A Nice Life
The Unnatural World

Its always disconcerting to us when something starts flying off the shelves when we haven’t a) reviewed it b) listened to it c) even heard of it. We are, believe it or not, comprised of deeply flawed and sometimes useless human beings and so on occasion it is possible to completely miss stuff. As it is with this second album from t...view item »

Arab On Radar
The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions

Arab On Radar flung themselves into oblivion some time ago, but these recordings have never previously seen the light of day. The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions was recorded in 2001 at the same time as their final album, and the material carries the same sense of unhinged bro...view item »

Pelican
City Of Echoes

'Down to earth' is a good way to describe their performance on the album overall. Their previous effort, The Fire In Our Throats, was a little pretentious, and they tried to get away with putting too little music in too much time. On City Of Echoes, Pelican knew exactly what they wanted to do, and they recorded as an incredibly tight unit once m...view item »

Lowtide
Lowtide

Lowtide are an indie-rock four-piece from Melbourne, Australia. Their sound has been likened to a combination of Slowdive, Spacemen 3 and Sparklehorse which seems a bit of an odd mix to me…..anyway, on their self-titled debut they definitely have tunes in abundance. They have been champio...view item »

Fir Cone Children
Firconium

Contributing to the very worthy and absolutely made-up genre of shoecore (in layman's terms, that's doting shoegaze + a slight hint of grindcore), Fir Cone Children impressed with their sweet but sinister songs on The Age of Blastbeats. Now they return with a record called 'Firconium' hich doubles down on...view item »

Clay Rendering
We Are Aware

Next up on Sir Prurient's Hospital Productions label is one from duo Clay Rendering, aka Wolf Eyes alum Mike Connelly alongside artist Tara Connelly. Their music sounds like extreme music being reduced into a dreamt-up ambience, blurred together but never cut of its melodies or extr...view item »

Spray Paint
Punters On a Barge

Unpolished, and harsh, Spray Paint pack a lot of energy. From the barren streets of Austin, TX, they have chosen vinyl as their medium for unleashing their no wave punk upon us: Punters on a Barge harbors paranoid, atonal tracks that will have you jump awake in the night. Which is totally our kind of jam....view item »

Sonna
Keep It Together

Here is a collection of non-album tracks from this long disbanded Baltimore band including recordings made with Steve Albini who had also recorded their two studio albums. The collection spans their entire career from their mumbly beginnings onwards and showcases the quiet history of a post-rock band who deserve to take their place amongst conte...view item »

Isis
Temporal

Even after splitting up, Isis still impresses. “Temporal” is a posthumous release by one of the most iconic atmospheric sludge bands of all time. This is a band that defined the post-metal offshoot, introduced many fans to a more meditative sort of weight in music, influenced countless bands, and accomplished just as much as the grou...view item »

High Places
Original Colors

High Places return with their third album for Thrill jockey and this time they ain't messin'! H.P have been unfortunate in that their sample based, organic approach to composition has been heavily co-opted in the past couple of years evolving into the potentially profitable sound you migh...view item »

Debris Slide
Araido

Araido is the debut album of Debris Slide, a Nottingham group with an abiding love for the great shoegazey tradition of refracting pop songs through walls of noise and distortion. They have a very thick sound, a near-constant cloud of treble-fuzz hovering above distantly echoed vocals. LP limited to 100 copies, on Fluff...view item »

pg.lost
Versus

A blast from the post-rock past! pg.lost tend to bring the heavy side of beautiful, while also implementing songwritten affectations and treated vocals. On Versus they ditch that and go a lil' bit electronic, utilising synth to offset their muddy, heartbroken sound. For fans of the more guttural...view item »

TTNG
Disappointment Island

Bands putting out an album after a few years is like meeting an old friend: they’ve changed, but you still recognize them. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes not so much. This Town Needs Guns added a member and is now known as TTNG. And thankfully it’s not a let-down at all, despite being called ...view item »

FOUND
Terra Nova

FOUND produced the music presented on Terra Nova as part of a commission for a project that considered the fate of the 1910 Antarctic expedition ship of that name. Naturally, synthesisers were used to represent this adventure: at least they can capture the icy chill of those frozen wastes. LP edition on Chemikal Undergr...view item »

These Arms Are Snakes
Tail Swallower and Dove

Comes on like vintage Fugazi early, then the keyboard burbles kick in at the end of "Woolen Heirs" and the album becomes something else entirely. Honestly, while I'm a fan, I was a little afraid that this album would just be 'more of the same'. I'm pleased that These Arms Are Snakes continued with the sound we're acc...view item »

Earring
Tunn Star

Earring are a very fine guitar / drums duo from Chicago, presenting their debut full-length on Brooklyn’s Fire Talk label. Tracks like ‘Dark Heart’ almost recall Codeine in their slow speed and thick heft, but the pair are nimble on their feet elsewhere. Top end noisy-fuzzed guitar action here ...view item »

Triple Sun
The City Lies In Ruins

Triple Sun are a trio. I don’t think of gassy, hot suns but the music they make does seem rather out of this world so, maybe. On The City Lies in Ruins the trio bring a combination of minimalism and electronics with rock guitar to create a sinister, ever building album of deep drone and post-rock....view item »

Francesca Lago
Mirrors Against The Sun

Francesca Lago produced new album Mirrors Against The Sun with just 2 close collaborators (apart from Max Lotti’s credit for ‘noise guitar’ on 1 track), who drape her vocal songcraft and guitar lines with synth, cello and drum rhythms. It’s a very full and sweeping alt-pop sound ...view item »

Lymbyc Systym
New Varieties

Lymbyc Systym is a pair of brothers, putting in the commitment to make things work over long distances. The New Varieties EP is another step into brightly-coloured synth lands, with heartfelt melodies played out in all kinds of textures over a dance beat. 3 original tracks, rounded out neatly with a remix by Bot...view item »

Blue States
Restless Spheres

I still listen regularly to Blue States music which makes it even more surprising that this is their first album in nine years. Blue States (actually just one bloke Andrew Dragazis) makes lovely sweeping usually (but not always) instrumental music with a nod to past masters at cinematic composition such as Ennio Morricon...view item »

Sverige
Rymden

Swedish indie-synth-pop which transmits an epic feeling on a bedroom-producer scale. These 4 tracks from Sverige are sweet and beautiful, sung in Swedish over charming, finely-crafted instrumental tracks. The Rymdem 7” is limited to a mere 250 copies in hand-printed sleeves, released by the Tona Serenad label....view item »

Lovely Little Girls
Glistening Vivid Splash

A full 9 people from the fertile weirdo-rock scene of Chicago contributed to Glistening Vivid Splash, the second full-length secretion from Lovely Little Girls. Wailing amateur-operatic vocals, tooting brass and mathish rhythms: the very many parts add up to a st...view item »

Bracken
We Know About The Need

Quietly legendary, mildly esoteric, shrouded in mystery, HOOD are Leeds' treasured sons of the understated, experimental underground that has thrived like a rampant mushroom in the last 15 years, seemingly around the nucleus of what they dared to create/de-construct within the parameters of 'indie' music. Now s...view item »

Bruce Russell
Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings

Bruce Russell is of course one of the principal guitar-manglers for New Zealand noise-rock heroes The Dead C! He also produces lesser-known solo work, such as the material gathered on the perfectly-titled Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings, a set of guitar / amp interfacings with a gnarly e...view item »

Richard Neale
ENDS

Quirky folk electronica from English acoustic wizard Richard Neale. Prior to his release of the 'Deep Blue' Eps, Neale released this minimalistic loop odyssey. Hypnotic, trance-inducing experimentalism, building four tracks around a single loop. Inspired by the works of William Baskinski, this comes in a nice he...view item »

True Widow
As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth

Heavy tings here on the second album by True Widow, first released in 2011. As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth has the emotional weight of slowcore as well as the distorted-riff weight of stoner rock. Mighty stuff. Reissued on vinyl by Mexican Summer....view item »

True Widow
I.N.O.

Heavy tings here on True Widow’s I.N.O. EP, first released in 2011. The band have the emotional weight of slowcore as well as the distorted-riff weight of stoner rock, although this release also sees them pushing into some weirder territory, with 2 10-minute-plus tracks that drone and dirge. Reissued on vinyl by M...view item »

British ambient guitar strummer and really Christmassy guy Yellow 6 has rush released a two track EP containing music written in the wake of the death of Tony Conrad (therefore made really recently).

Leonard Las Vegas
Jagmoor Cynewulf

This shoegaze-dream-pop record comes with the baggage of an 18-chapter book’s worth of philosophical musings (not packaged with the LP), so you know it ought to be interesting. Leonard Las Vegas has created the character of Jagmoor Cynewulf, through whom he channels catchy tunes with existential lyrics. CD / LP pa...view item »

Ulver
Wars of the Roses

Norwegian band Ulver have always been hard to pin down, and their eighth album is no exception, whisking their history of black metal, post-rock and ambience into a progressive, song-based whole. First released in 2011, this reissue of Wars of the Roses presses the music onto pure white vinyl. On Kscope....view item »

Sigur Rós
Von

Von is definately for the more open minded of Sigur Ros fans. If You have only heard Hoppipolla on Xfactor or something, Von probably isn't for you. Yet. But if (like me) your into your into extended passages of disturbing noises and screams interspersed with slow, ethereal 'songs' then your bound to love it.If you haven't got an...view item »

David Grubbs

Half of the album also features the highly combustible drumming of Eli Keszler, and the tracks performed include a setting of a Walt Whitman poem and an arrangement of the 14th ce...view item »

Muscle and Marrow
Love

Muscle and Marrow is a pretty visceral name, and this duo often live up it, with blasts of crunching noise and heavy drums. But they also play soft and wispy, and the delicate balance between these two contrasts that they maintain is where they really succeed on Love. A darkly beautiful LP, on The Flenser....view item »

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight
Casino Drone

I’m frankly a little disappointed that Casio Drone isn’t just an album of Casio keyboard drones. But that’s probably a minority opinion, as the actual sound of Mike Adams At His Honest Weight is richly-textured independent pop, warm and friendly and full of wit. There is some ambience too to be fair&he...view item »

On Dead Waves is a new collaborative project, pairing electro-pop maker Polly Scattergood with shoegaze-electronica producer Maps. Together they end up with a fairly noirish kind of sound: there are brushes of guitar, electro...view item »

And So I Watch You From Afar
Heirs

And So I Watch You From Afar is the band name. (I know, right?) Anyway, their non-stop work ethic that sees them jetting all over the world to play for people all over the world has resulted in the attention to detail that they have put in to the making of their fourth album, Heirs. Ten songs made it on to the album out...view item »

Remember Remember
