Typhonian Highlife
The World of Shells

Spencer Clark puts his The Skaters and Tarzana collabs on hold to revisit his Typhonian Highlife project to squanch some sounds from the 'World of Shells', using synth-drenched ambient tools to conjure up images of beaches, palm trees, sunbathers and donkeys, all made from shell...view item »

Dolphins Into The Future
Ke Ala Ke Kua

Ease back and bathe in the aural sea of tranquility with our man Lieven Martens at the controls manning the good old Dave Smith Evolver synthesizer, tapes, small hand intruments, Casio CTK810 etc. Listen and bask in the glory of the Pacific Ocean where you will hear whales and Dolphins, the ocean waves cascading, tropical bird song. If like ...view item »

Various
Manoeuvers

Here's a good one. Four analogue synth based repetitions from four of the finest artists working in the field presented as a four way split for the Maneuvers, Muziek Uit De Kosmos Festival which takes place later this year in Kraak's native land of Belgium. Rene Hell's contribution is a crash course in astral minimalism and sees a soft bubbling ...view item »

Mad Nanna / Pumice / Kraus/ Slug Guts
Realistic Pillow

Here’s a four-way split on Kraak, the fifth in a series of four-ways focusing on “caviar from Oceania”. First up, Mad Nanna have a lean and lazy bit of lo-fi slacker pop with that ramshackle Antipodean jangle beloved of The Clean and their contemporaries, then...view item »

Razen
Remote Hologram

Belgian avant-drone duo Razen return this week with their first ever double-LP release on Kraak. This one is very much an album of two halves, with the first LP described on the sleeve as "Live improvisations recorded at Poltrock Palladium" and LP2 as "Rust constellation compositions record...view item »

Sleaford Mods
Jobseeker

Well it wasn’t my idea! But I approved of it enormously when it was proposed. So yes, our Album Of The Year 2013 outside-bet winners Sleaford Mods are already back with the first of three 7”s on various cutting hedge labels. KRAAK sets up concerts, puts out records a...view item »

Maan
Manifold



Lieven Martens Moana
Music From The Guardhouse

Here’s an LP from the man formerly known as Dolphins Into The Future, Lieven Martens Moana, and it’s a bit of a head-scratcher. Described as “A play for magnetic tape recorder”, it’s a mixture of concretey field-recorded soundsca...view item »

Bear Bones, Lay Low
El Telonero

Ooh there’s always something exciting about picking something up to review that you’ve never heard of before. It could be amazing or it could be utter gash. You could loosely term it gambling and being that I’ve given up fruit machines this is as gambley as I get these days. Anyway Ernesto Gonzales aka ...view item »

France
Live at Kraak Festival 2011

France are a new experimental three-piece from - you guessed it - France. This tape is a document of their debut performance at 2011's Kraak Fest, considered by many who attended to be 'a highlight...view item »

Girlseeker
1-800-Greed

Apparently this record is collectively coming out on literally ten different labels. TEN! I was on a band that put out a record on four labels once and even that seemed a bit much. Still, it can't hurt to have names like Kraak...view item »

U.S. Girls
U.S. Girls On Kraak

When I first heard this I thought "oh no U.S. Girls has gone all Zola Jesus, what a massive bummer". Not that I'm down on Zola, it's just that she has a shocking lack of catchy songs which you need when you go all polished & commercial. Sounding like a nihilistic Kate Bush on PCP an...view item »

Various Artists
God Damn, I Hate The Blues

A rather nifty looking (and by all accounts nifty sounding) release containing no less than six (that's right...SIX) of independent music's greatest well kept secrets. The bands on this audio curio are varied and interesting and all have one thing in common...they all HATE THE BLUES!!! In ...view item »

Kohn
Random Patterns

Ooh it's all gone a bit cosmic. If you're into all things synthy then I suspect you've heard of Kohn. If not then you should have done as he's been doing solid work for ages now and it's really rather good! 'Random Patterns' is more minimal than previous work as he draws inspiration fro...view item »

Kurt Vile/Jack Rose/Meg Baird/US Girls
Meet the Philly Elite

I was so excited about this 'Meet The Philly Elite' 7" which arrived the other day from KRAAK. We got their last copies and most of 'em have gone now so be quick if you're thinking about it. Kraak love Philadelphia and the music scene so much there they knocked up this ace all star cast 7" full of the lovely folks of Philly. You got Kurt ...view item »

Gerard Herman
Feta Justice

I'll be honest now. I only chose to review this record cos of the title. Genius. I don't even like cheese but it gets me every time. Yeah, you read that right. I don't like cheese... This is a well strange record... Musique concrete I guess is the easy way to describe it... It's just strange noise after strange ...view item »

Kohn
We Need More Space In The Cosmos

It seems I've landed some decent stuff in my pile this week which is a relief. You see you get the odd abomination that makes you lose the will to live. That's certainly not the case with this classy Kohn 'We Need More Space In The Cosmos' LP on Kraak. This is a wee bit on the Kosmische tip reminding me of a lot of old synthesizer music that fascin...view item »

Bridget Hayden
A Siren Blares In An Indifferent Ocean

The last CDr I heard on Golden Lab from this good lady totally blew my mind so when this LP landed I got excited about the possibilities contained within its grooves. Of course Bridget is probably most recognized for her work in Vibracathedral Orchestra but beyond that she appears to keep herself fairly busy. These recordings date from between 2...view item »

Afternoon Saints
The Shirley Jangle

Afternoon Saints are Christian Marclay, Gunter Muller, Lee Ranaldo and kiwi bagpipe master David Watson and they have an ultra smart looking heavy duty gatefold LP entitled 'The Shirley Jangle' out on Kraak. They have also roped in Jim O'Rourke for additional mixing duties and there is an etching on the fourth side by Lee Ranaldo. I can't quite gau...view item »

Ignatz
Selected Songs from Cassettes 2005-2009

I can't claim to be massively familiar with the Ignatz catalogue, although I've heard bits here and there which I now can't really remember. I guess my probably ill-informed perception of him is that he's some sort of Jandek-style outsider fella from Belgium who plays stuff that might vaguely sound like the blues, but all weird like. I gues...view item »

Various (Kohn, Peaking Lights, Alien Radio, Ducktails)
Split

Nice 7" this. Not come across anything on Kraak before but if this is what they are into then they're good lads in my book. The Alien Radio and Ducktails tracks are exclusives and are certainly worth a listen but it's the Kohn and Peaking Lights tracks that deliver the surprises (more on them in a minute). So the Alien Radio tune is a total muta...view item »

Hellvete
De Gek

The Sylvester Anfang II LP from earlier this year steamed into my top ten of the year (the only top ten that counts, remember) and on the first couple of listens I've found this Hellvete LP on Kraak to be a perfect companion piece to that deathly and ritualistic psychedelic drone masterwork, coming as it does from one of the key figures in that who...view item »

Ignatz
Ignatz III

I've not had a duffer yet... No longer are the forces of darkness conspiring against me. Gosh this Ignatz 'III' LP/CD sounds tops. Proper filthy scuzzy blues. Phil has declared that this is what he wanted Jackie O Mother Fucker to sound like. This is totally raw and fucked, primal sounding dirty blues with bits of psychedelic Jimi Hendrix being pla...view item »

R.O.T.
L'Ecurie

Wow. I've just been handed two Belgian vinyl releases on the Kraak imprint. Never before have my ears wandered across the shiny surfaces of this labels outpourings of musical grief before. R.O.T.'s 'L'ecurie' is 4 tracks of disturbing field recordings, possibly put onto tape inside a wandering sheeps bowels. There's some strange ...view item »

Kiss The Anus of A Black Cat
An Interlude To The Outermost

Now KISS THE ANUS OF A BLACK CAT (which has to be band name of the week) with An Interlude To The Outermost. A full sounding album with a whole bag of instruments to create the size of music they are looking for. Cello, strings, reeds and all the usuals. On first listening this album has some really great moments of musical br...view item »

Silvester Anfang
Satanische Vrede

The other fucker on this strange label is a different beast altogether. SILVESTER ANFANG are a self confessed collective of "post-satanic krautfolk non musicians", a term I would have walked on hot coals to be sacrificed by a 10 ft goat to have invented! Sprawling acid freeform gear is this, proper organic psych out shit. All re...view item »
