Trans Am
The Surveillance

Can instrumental music tell us something about surveillance? An interesting attempt to prove it can, and one of the few records that addressed the subject in the pre-9/11 US....view item »

Capitol K
Notes From Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball

It's been a long time since I've heard anything of Capitol K and he seems to have undergone a bit of a transformation in the meantime. Notes From A Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball kicks off like Damo Suzuki-era Can, particularly Future Days, spacey guitar pickings bubbling around a severely motorik base until trancey rave stabs come in out of...view item »

Platform
EP1

Its great to have some new material from Matt Atkins' Platform. The first track treats our ears to some proper decent crunchy beats and weeping cinematic synths and then a really sweet melody just melts me into submission. It fits in wonderfully with the mechanical beats and reminds me of Chiastic Slide period Autechre. The second tune has som...view item »

Canyons!
Trapdoor/ Diamonds

Speaking of unsettling sounds the disc from Canyons! has a bit of an eerie quality to it. Sounds built from guitars and broken laptops are the order of the day here and I reckon this will appeal to folks that dig Fennesz's stuff. Trapdoor/ Diamonds is more good stuff on Hellosquare....view item »

Flying Lotus
Los Angeles

Back in the office beaming with pleasure after purchasing some bargain PJ smoothies. If you bought them at Tescos, one meagre bottle costs about the same as a packet of fags. Health rules but my wallet can't keep up with it. That's why Britain's sub classes are often obese & can't walk up inclines without coughing up a lungful of something horr...view item »

Blaubac
Reflux e.p.

Also on Disco_r.dance is Blaubac's newie, the 'Reflux' EP. Now if I were him I'd imbibe some Pepto-Bismol because that really soothes your indigestion worries and chills your stomach the fuck down. I had some this morning cos I felt like i'd eaten a bag of wasps & half a cactus when I got up. To be serious, this is some beautifully produced gli...view item »

Polygon Window
Surfing On Sine Waves

This is an album by Richard James, of course, from the period where he was also putting out records under the psuedonyms of 'Caustic Window','The Dice Man', and of course, 'Aphex Twin'. And unlike the first two nom-de-plumes above, this is more in an Aphex-y vein, with dark melodies and very tasteful but propulsive beats in use all over. If you ...view item »

Aphex Twin
Drukqs

Hoorah a new Aphex Twin LP. Been playing this for some time and at first I thought it was kind of average but it's grown on me and now I reckon it's yr vintage Aphex Twin. There's some nice mellow piano tracks on there and some mental Aphex tracks as you'd expect. Some on the harsh end of...view item »

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works Volume II

A pivotal album in the acid/ambient scene - truely unique and hauntingly beautiful this album bolstered the enigmatic Aphex Twin's reputation as an important figure in the electronica scene and in turn influenced many other electronic artists. Mainly unnamed compositions, each track has a minimalistic quality, a real breakdown of composite parts...view item »

Robin Saville
Peasgood Nonsuch

Robin Saville from ISAN releases his debut CD on Static Caravan called 'Peasgood Nonsuch'. An extremely informative sentence that one. No idea what a Peasgood Nonsuch was til I had a quick peek around the internet and discovered it's a breed of apple. Maybe type of apple is more apt but I like the fact that apples breed and will one day take over t...view item »

Renfro
Mathematics

Immensely rewarding CD in from Renfro next who do this enchanting glacial glitch pop thing, Bursting with sublime soul-searching vocals, whirring electronics, emotive keyboards & some next level production, this album is called 'Mathematics' Described as having a shared love of sad dream pop and progressive electronica, this Southern England du...view item »

DJ Scotch Egg
Drumized

Nursing the mother of all hangovers I've almost lost the will to live... Let's see if the DJ Scotch Egg 'Drumized' album can perk me up... I heard that he'd signed to Load a while ago after he toured with Lightning Bolt so here are the latest fruits of his labour. You know the score with Mr Egg like, he does some wacky gameboy mentalism a...view item »

Maga Bo
Confusion Of Tongues

If your after a mix CD this week you could do worse than snap up the Maga Bo 'Confusion Of Tongues' mix. He mashes up loads of dubplates and tracks from Enduser, Filastine, Timeblind, Nettle, Slaughter Mob etc. Every variation of the breakbeat is thrown into the mix, jungle, dubstep, baiile funk, middle eastern rhythms,hip hop, dancehall etc. For f...view item »

Tickley Feather
Tickley Feather

Tickley Feather: S/T (Paw Tracks) On the Animal Collective related label is this twenty track collection of naievty and lo-fi whimsy. All recorded on four track and collected from the past four years experimentation, Tickley Feather is lone female; Annie Sachs known for touring as support to Animal Collective with whom she shares a love o...view item »

Montag
Going Places

Personally I find albums including different artists make that album more of a "Various Artists" album then their "own" album. It's great to have some others do "remix's" on a separate album but Montag shouldn't have focused half his album to "who-are-they" artists. These "contributing" artists don't add much to Montag's image but just add "blah...view item »

Yellotone
Executive Timber

We got a new CD by Yellotone entitled 'Executive Timber'. You may remember this guy (Simon Harding) having stuff out on Ai Records a bit ago. He's got a bit of a band together now and is singing and everything and it really is great that he is because he's a very talented guy. Brian pipes up and says that this has a New Zealand feel to it with bits...view item »

Pridon
Apnea Eina

We got this CD right. It's on Low Impedance. It's by .Pridon (note the prefixed dot!). And it's called 'Apnea Eina'. Dropping somewhere between earlier Autechre & prime BOC in parts, this sounds like nicely programmed & well layered electronic gear. Atmospheric is an over-used word in my oeuvre but I don't give a jot. I'll get my marker pen...view item »

Raoul Sinier
Two Heads

Raoul Sinier AKA Ra of Planet Mu / Coredump/ Sublight has a fine 3" CD entitled 'Two Heads' out on Disco_r.dance. This is more of his trademark blend of messed up distorted crunchy beats. The first track 'Mired' has an organ sound and is like a crazy holy crunch fest. 'Warm Hall' has a wicked distorted beat and a dramatic sense of tension. Out Th...view item »

Clark
Turning Dragon

Both Brian and I accidentally both reviewed the Clark 'Turning Dragon' album so here's mine. Sadly it's smaller than his... We've just entered into a wee debate about electronic dance music that's trying to be too clever for its own good...Warp have been promising for a while now that Clark is the new Aphex squarepusher. He does have his momen...view item »

Lapsed & Nonnon
The Death of Convenience

For his third full length album, Lapsed (Salt Lake City's Jason Stevens) pairs up with his long time live-collaborator Nonnon (Dave Madden). The Death Of Convenience is a lot more than yet another electronic hip hop album. Appropriately titled, it is a record in which nothing is convenient. Genre-less, it rewards those who are willing to abandon...view item »

Gouede Oussou
Nothing Matters

Gouede Oussou's 'Nothing Matters' has drum machine beats that remind me of Big Black and some late 80's post industrial acts Front 242, Cop Shoot Cop, KMFDM, Ministry etc. It's kinda like techno/ EBM / industrial with lots of samples and occasional guitars.15 tracks plus remixes from Cheju, Karhide, Terminal Cheesecake, Living Tissue and Puff Tube....view item »

Alter Ego
Why Not

All of the tracks begin with a similar template. Block rockin beats, fuzzy throbbing synths, woozy melodies, bits of dubstep, dancehall and techno, all wound up weirdly tangled electro / techno hybrids. Things get all wonky, in a very good way, some tracks get all epic and majestic, the synths swelling into huge grandiose melodies, others fall a...view item »

Tokyo Mask
Hinterlands

Tokyo Mask: "Hinterlands" is a dark-drone driftwork that develops with the addition of twitchy, dubby rhythms and percussion. At times atmospheric and brooding this collection no doubt needs repeat listens to appreciate the intricate layering and processing used to form this genre straddling production. Almost, at times reminiscent of dub...view item »

The Missing Ensemble
Zeropolis

Low Impedance: The Missing Ensemble: "Zeropolis" is a chiming, droning drift based collection of six pieces ranging from low to high end oscillations. ...view item »

Strategy
Future Rock

Strategy: "Future Rock" on Kranky, like the label this set encompasses various elements that make up modern music production values, techniques and hardware. It also covers the variety of styles and genres most eclectic music lovers embrace, from headphone ambience, drifting dub-like sound-scapes, dance, the dreaded IDM field with influen...view item »

Sveldt
Bi-Polar EP

The Sveldt 'Bi-Polar' CD kicks off with 'Hynt' which his a mega uptempo glitchy robotic beat and then lunges into 'Hynt' which is a more chilled melodic electronic cut. Then into some Autechre style noisy industrial sound design with 'Daadrul'. 'Lz-35' gets a bit spannered. Again this is on Airvent Media. ...view item »

Output Message
Sommeil (Remixed)

I quite enjoyed that OUTPUTMESSAGE album that came out on Output. Not enough to take one but I was happy that it was on in the background while I constantly confuse myself. Here is a 12" (vinyl only release) which features 5 remixes of Sommeil thanks to those people at Melodic Records.  The mixes aren't really by ...view item »

Blaknoisewhitesoul
Rulebreaker

Here is BLAKNOISEWHITESOUL with their 7" Rulebreaker. A poppy song with 4 chords and female vocals. Its a bit retro electronic robot sounding. Sound good in club off ya head but bit bland in the office. ...view item »

Del Wire
01

The first one is by Del Wire which is simply called 01 (on LP and CD). we heard this a week or 2 ago and were blown away. In fact everything on the label is superb. DEL WIRE make atmospheric electronica with hip hop beats. The thing that sets this apart from the plethora of other similar titles is that they seem to have a rea...view item »

Kid606
Pretty Girls Make Raves

Hmmmmn. About a 2 year ago, I'd probably be quite exited about a new Kid 606 album. These days I couldn't really give a fig. Think I'm all laptop gabberred out y'know. 'Pretty Girls Make raves' is the hilariously titled newie from Miguel wothisface & we're straight into techno-for-frightened-indie-kids territory. It sounds like So...view item »

Kid606
Who Still Kill Sound?

So It's up to Kid 606 to provide the hard funky stuff these days. With aplomb. He must have realised that the world was tired of his pretentious laptop arsing around (which had him on my spleen venting hitlist) & has undergone some kind of renaissance in the last year. I think it started with the superb "The Illness" 12&quo...view item »

Hypo
Random Veneziano

Both fat Bazzer 'n' my quiet cohort UncleClint (tm) have expressed enthusiasm for the last CD by Hypo on Active Suspension. Now there's a new one (called "Random Veneziano") & I'm up to deliver a diatribe about how great it is. No, really. This is bonkers music made with a totally POP attitude. Joseph Nothing...view item »

Hypo
Karaoke A Capella

Active Suspension bring us a rather fantastic CD by Hypo which we've been loving big time loving time big over the last few weeks. Christ this is good.... Cut up electronica but unusually it focuses more on melody thus making a right good album. It's absolutely bonkers and reminds me of Josep...view item »

Cacoy
Human Is Music

Did you know that Efterklang have their own label called Rumraket which is Danish for space rocket? Hell I didn't know that til just 5 minutes ago. In my excitement I just had to tell someone... the wife wouldn't be interested in the slightest so you get the brunt of my knowledge. Anyway new in on Rumraket is...view item »

Various
Trade & Distribution Almanac 1

Adaadat. Yeah it's an IDM label but with a difference. The tunes are actually good. We have a compilation here on CD only called 'Trade & Distribution Almanac' which is the bounciest and most enjoyable bunch of laptop japes i've heard in a while. Skewed Electro-ey madness in places and some more br...view item »

Neotropic
White Rabbits

For her fourth album, Neotropic moves to the under-the-radar, but excellent, American label Mush. With "New Cross," she drifts into a quiet space, emphasising the folk elements, with a touch of rhythm to ground it. "Inch Inch" picks up the pace some, making the drum patterns more noticeable, though it disintegrates halfway through into an ambian...view item »

Vision And The Riddle
Tilt

First up is by the hugely eclectic Vision & The Riddle who've sent us their mysterious little 7"s in the past. Now we have a lovely white vinyl issue of their Tilt mini album. Well, looks like no-one reviewed it originally so I'll just say, we have here a smorgasbord of cinematic breaks, inspired samples, twisted electronics, ...view item »

Kid606
Resilience

New CD and double vinyl in on Wichita by none other than Kid 606. Boy does the kid get about, he's been on more labels than erm, prices or something else you get a lot of on labels. 12 Tracks in all and pretty decent it is too. There's a definite dub/reggae influence on some of these tracks, melodic electronics and general nicene...view item »

Lesser
Gearhound

Former label mates and pals Matmos and Kid606 may get to tour with Bjork and be on the cover of magazines, but Lesser's the one in their crew with truly talented digiscrewizardy, and a genuine sense of humor. Forget all those other dull pretenders and stiff-lipped eyes-down laptop geeks that have decided they're going to ride the (nonexistant) "gli...view item »
