Zomby
Mercury’s Rainbow

Modern Love finally issue Zomby's Mercury Beats, his attempt at re-imagining Wiley's Eskibeat series of releases. Made a while ago while his body clock was all out of whack, the pieces are methodical and rhythmic takes on grime that if released at the time may have shifted the course of grime. We think that is what the ...view item »

Lucy Railton
Paradise 94

Busy cellist Lucy Railton, who has all sorts of album credits from Bat for Lashes and Jamie Cullum to Bonobo, has her own album this time. Out on Modern Love, it’s an uncompromising look at the possibilities of the cello and the studio. Railton draws fearsome, pulsing rasp...view item »

Demdike Stare

Phillippe Hallais
An American Hero

Philippe Hallais has been producing as Low Jack for some time, but here he steps out under his own name for the first time, presenting some rather different experiments. An American Hero finds Hallais taking on the tropes of, er, ESPN sports documentaries, presenting a suite of ambienti...view item »

Turinn
18 1/2 Minute Gaps

Turinn helps to keep the quality and sonic identity of Manchester’s Modern Love label as strong as ever with this debut album release. 18 ½ Minute Gaps is a dark and distorted suite of club music that is almost too intense for any club, sounding somewhat like labelmate Andy Stott pushed bac...view item »

Andy Stott
Faith In Strangers

Stotty returns with a brand new album which is sure to get fans of the dark recesses of eerie electronic music excitable over the coming months. By the looks of the press release, it might be a varied affair veering from sparse and downcast to motorik and driving to brutal analogue jammzzzz. The track I'm listening to is a slow burning dark...view item »

Andy Stott
Luxury Problems

When I heard the Stottster was featuring guest vocals by his ex-piano teacher on his latest big record I gawped at the press release and re-read it about three times in disbelief. Had he lost his marbles or was he talking the piss? Well, neither it seems. Alison Skidmore has indeed got a lovely voice. Wheth...view item »

Testpressing#006: 40 Years Under The Cosh / Frontin'

Experimental duo Demdike Stare drop a pair of crunchy new cuts on their sixth limited 'Testpressing' 12". There are two tracks here, '40 Years Under The Cosh' and 'Frontin', the former looping broken beats and woozy, buzzing atmospherics, the second a more aggressive and noisy barrage of glitching distortion and twitchy minimal d...view item »

Andy Stott
Too Many Voices

Andy Stott returns with a hotly awaited fourth album. Once again, Stott plunges into the gorgeous obsidian depths of treacle-thick distorted basslines and slow-mo juggernaut rhythms, to truly potent effect. Vocal collaborator of choice Alison Skidmore returns again on half the tracks. Too Ma...view item »

Low Jack
Lighthouse Stories

Low Jack joins the Modern Love roster for his Lighthouse Stories. Don’t let the idyllic title fool you, this is a collection of avant-garde electronics and far-out club music pushed to the limits of genre. The songs borrow the alien sounds and structures of footwork, but twisted into inten...view item »

Batillus
Concrete (Andy Stott Remix)

It's a new Andy Stott record so I was bound to listen to it and like it, but I was blown away by the sheer mood of this track. Unlike anything Stott has released previously the Concrete remix takes only the darkest elements from his production repertoire, which coupled with the shifted metal vocals of Batillus ma...view item »

Andy Stott
We Stay Together

Reissue of this great double set of 2011-era Andy Stott, on none other than the Modern Love label. These six tracks have that amazing shuffling slow heavy sound that Stott excels at, like techno on a tape machine with running-down batteries. Excellent aesthetic with compulsive grooves to match. Two LPs....view item »

Andy Stott
Passed Me By

Passed Me By comes from Manchester based techno producer Andy Stott. The double vinyl LP crackles and pops with life through its minimal approach to electronica. The tracks dip and dive in and out of swaying instrumentation which transiently fades throughout the track and builds into something different, always ...view item »

Vatican Shadow
Death Is Unity With God

Those of you that have been crying yourselves to sleep, because you missed out on the ‘Death Is Unity With God’ 6x cassette set on Hospital productions -- because somebody bought it to sell on Discogs at twice the price -- can now rejoice and throw the mp3s in the bin.... Or perhaps not. Modern Love have reduced the load by t...view item »

A new 12" in an ever-morphing series from Demdike Stare, Rathe / Patchwork continues to marry the dark, sonorous and mechanical side of the act with a more dance-oriented, good time approach. "Rathe" is one for your feet, a jungle-influenced cut that punches articulated rhythms an...view item »

Demdike Stare
Forest of Evil

This is the dual work of Sean Canty who is involved in the Finders Keepers label and fellow Manchester cohort Miles Whittaker (MLZ/Pendle Coven). The LP is comprised of two parts: Dusk and Dawn. This is very good indeed... It's sort of dark occult ceremony/ ritual soundtrack music, doomy and heavy. It builds slowly with sinister sub bass and str...view item »

Demdike Stare
Liberation Through Hearing

Loving this new DS material. They've certainly developed a pretty original sound template. Infusing abstracted ambient vibes, zen-like percussion, progressive dub/minimal techno & the atmospheric weight of dubstep with the sinister, apocalyptic menace of Sean Canty's vast sound-sample / vinyl archive, this duo, (the other member being Lancas...view item »

Demdike Stare
Voices Of Dust

That man has escaped his Pendle Coven again and has recently been spotted skulking around the sinister backwaters of Lancashire with his erstwhile partner-in-crime - the one who actually finds lots of amazing records in junk shops whereas everyone else finds Jim Diamonds's Greatest Hits & a knackered copy of the best of Dionne Warwick.

Jack Dice
Sip Paint

Oh lordy this is better. Due to staff staying in bed issues, I’ve been left with a lot of the stuff that I would usually be kept away from but its nice to hear something amongst it all that I really like. So this is a project which features John Twells who used to operate as Xela and is now probably more ...view item »

Rainer Veil
New Brutalism

I suppose it was inevitable that Modern Love would eventually release something actually named New Brutalism… Not that I am complaining in the slightest! Lovely stark brutalist imagery on the cover, and similarly stark musical content on this 12” from Rainer Veil. ‘Negative Space’ is a highlight...view item »

Demdike Stare
Symbiosis

Demdike Stare is the new project from Miles Whitaker of Pendle Coven and Sean Canty of the Finders Keepers label, keeping the witchy theme of the former going with track titles like 'Haxan Dub' and 'All Hallow's Eve' (which features Danny Norbury guesting) and by naming themselves after one of the more famous sisters of Pendle.

Blimey are we up to number four in this series already? I don’t know where the time goes. It seems like I was in nappies two minutes ago and before I know it I’ll be dead. Anyway you must know the score with these by now. Two cuts; the first of which ‘Fail’ is  some proper eerie drone and action with slow distant hea...view item »

The Stranger
Watching Dead Empires In Decay

I've something to admit. I don't really dig a massive amount of the Leyland Kirby/Caretaker material as it appears there is now such vast swathes of it in existence that it quickly became much like a cookie-cutter parody of itself - a one trick pony that suddenly had JLK elevate...view item »

Andy Stott is big big news these days, which makes this a good time to revisit some of the sterling work he was doing before he rose in prominence. Turns out: it was great.

Deepchord Presents Echospace
Vibrational Studies (In Echospace)

A worthy vinyl counterpart to the 2CD set. Vibrational Studies (In Echospace) is an alternative version of the albums opening track, and it is proper head gear. Super deep analogue loops fade and dissolve and re-emerge in slightly different form. The sounds fizz around and decay like their submerged in a slowly rotating washing machine.

I like a bit of Pendle Coven, me. If I'm not mistaken this is the first full-length they've done and it's very satisfactory, particularly for CD folks as it collects many of the best tracks from the twelves: 'Iamnoman', 'Uncivil Engineering' and totally stellar album closer 'Exigen' are all included, the latter being an unsurprising highlight with ...view item »
