Double Adaptor
Live at The Village Vanguard

Sometimes I need a kick in the head, audio-terror style to make me realise that music is still really important & not just an abused channel for some dicks to macho posture all over the shop in sleeveless suede jerkins & cryptic tattoos. This CD by Double Adaptor (On Osaka) is bonkers IDM stretched beyond certain limitatio...view item »

The Last Sound
Only the Lonely know the Glow is Failing/Turbochant

Quite an interesting one 'tis this dear reader. I thought it had crappy indie band all over it. Turns out to be a beguiling mixture of summat a bit '80s like Psychedelic Furs mixed with summat a bit more modern and interesting like Washed Out or Yacht. It has a really wonky feel to it and a really strong tune am...view item »

Last Days Of 1984
Wake Up To The Waves

Judging by the cover of this CD I thought it was going to be some kind of twee psych-pop, but actually what is on the disc is Balearic hippie ecstasy music. Lotsa synths, echoey motivational vocals and lazy summer holiday beats. It's alright....view item »

Thread Pulls
New Thoughts

Here we have a two-piece rock band stripped way, way back to the bass and drums with which they produce a very distinctive sound! That sound somehow seems to be very full, especially when other components are brought in, electronic squeaks & the odd thrash of a guitar. The initial comparison on the opening 'How to Talk' is of Liars mangled u...view item »

Hunter Gatherer
Pere Lachaise / Undergrowth

'Witch house'? Fuck's sake. Well, whatever you call it this is cool stuff. Lead track 'Pere Lachaise' has got quite a classic low-mid tempo dubstep sort of a feel to it, only drenched to the skin with gothic atmosphere. In some respects there's not a huge amount to it but what it does it does pretty effectively and if you're receptive to its dar...view item »

Patrick Kelleher
You Look Colder – Remixes

I recall reviewing the original album from this very seat, almost a year ago. I must say back then I wouldn't have imagined a set of remixes being released as I'm really unsure how that sort of material lends itself to the process. Although I guess that depends which remixers are on board. I'm only familiar with a few of these folks: Skinny Wolv...view item »


Patrick Kelleher
You Look Cold

Patrick Kelleher 'You Look Cold' is up next for a spin... This is an interesting listen from the off... It has a very evocative feeling about it that mixes dramatic electronics and acoustics. His vocals sit neatly in the mix and the overall style of a few of the tracks I find reminiscent of David Sylvian. This man is clearly an a very talented arti...view item »

Hulk
Rise Of a Mystery Tide

There's a crone on the phone and all she does is moan about the tone of the drone I'm listening to that she feels in her bones while she's eating her scone (posh pronunciation) and taking out a loan in Peterborough. That'll teach me to speak to my mum at work. The joke was on her though, as she found out when I shouted "Shut up mum! This is mo...view item »
