Ken Camden
Space Mirror

Kranky Records used to be one of my favourite record labels back when they had artists like Bowery Electric and Labradford on their roster. These days I’m a little out of touch with the Chicago label so this seems like a nice way to get me r...view item »

Toro Y Moi
Causers Of This

In the top ten of pretty much everyone's 'one to watch in 2010' lists, Toro Y Moi (a.k.a Columbia, South Carolina's Chaz Bundick) has alot of hype to live up too on his debut 'Causers Of This'.

Christina Vantzou
No. 3

Classic Kranky material here from Chistina Vantzou’s third record, for which she enlisted a 15-part micro-orchestra.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Everything Else Matters

Big wide open shoegaze from St. Petersberg, Russia! Pinkshinyultrablast grabbed that pleasing name from an album by Astrobrite, which gives an impression of what their sound might be, but these guys love shoegaze too much to simply replicate it like a relic from the early '90s. Instead they push forward and outw...view item »


Denzel + Huhn
Brom

Denzel + Huhn carefully create exciting digital soundfields for the pleasure of the listener. Brom is their first record in eight years, and the thought that has gone into it’s 14 tracks in that time is audible. These pieces crackle, skip and hum with a remarkably melodic sensibility. Released on CD by the Oktaf l...view item »

The Host
Esalen Lectures

The Host’s new record, The Esalen Lectures, is essentially a fake record, taking as its conceit the idea of visiting a psychedelic retreat.

Sublamp
In Our Hiding Voice

The second track on this is like been immersed into a pothole outside a factory where they're drilling things. A muffled fuzzy rumble, disquieting & deep but not sinister, almost soothing!

Greg Davis
Midpoint

Home Normal are churning them out at the moment. It feel like they have something out every week! I could be wrong, perhaps my perception of time has been altered.

Oh, there’s a lot going on here. Where to begin?

Six Six Seconds
Tearing Down Heaven

Six Six Seconds’ Tearing Down Heaven was first heard on a Downwards compilation a few years ago, but it was agreed by all involved that it was worth being released on a disc of its own.

Toro Y Moi
Freaking Out

Toro Y Moi's new album is full of house style stomp and squelch. Its five tracks wouldn't sound out of place on the Golden Child soundtrack. It has electro grooves and soulful vocals in abundance.

Surf City
Jekyll Island

Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, one imagines Surf City’s name borrows as much from their country’s diverse panoply of sports as much as they do from Brian Wilson. As you’d expect Jekyll Island is sun-drenched but with a keen ear for extended fuzz workouts. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Fire....view item »

Ganymede

Some spiritual alleviation from Danny Clay. Ganymede are eight works from the Midwestern artists and producer. These pieces came to life when Clay took a bit of Schubert's Ganymed, disentangled the parts and created his own piece of ambient wellness. His studio wizardry shows how ...view item »

Shapes and Phases of Amibence

Triple header here but I'm only Familiar with Quantec who here gives us more of his ultra chilled out dub techno that goes down well in the early hours.

Relapxych.0 stuff is nice sounding too at times recalling classic ambient tracks and ...view item »


Inch Time
Icicles & Snowflakes

That Inch Time CD that came out on Static Caravan was dead good. I don't know if anyone remembers it but it was a winner.

Getting Chihei Hatakeyama to play on your record is a sure-fire way to make things just that little bit more serene, his work sounding potently organic through the use of acoustic guitars, piano motifs and little electronic flourishes. On Falling Sun, he joins forces with the equally hushed Good Weather For An A...view item »

There’s a certain ‘Flau’ sound isn’t there?
