The second in avant-garde drummer Dave De Rose’s series of Agile Experiments. This limited edition vinyl features seven live jams with crazed out brass and bass players, creating everything from film noiresque jazz to abstract noise. Expect otherworldly soundscapes, with all manner of horns and synthesize...view item »


Dave De Rose
Agile Experiments - Vol. 1

The point of germination for this release from Rome-born, London-based drummer/producer Dave De Rose can be traced back to a series of hour-long jam sessions he curated at a pizza restaurant in Brixton Village in 2015. He subsequently repeated the trick in-studio, with collaborators and De Rose playing for an hour before the res...view item »


Lolina
The Smoke

While Dean Blunt has been more than prolific since the split of Hype Williams in 2012, Inga Copeland has taken things a little slower. The Smoke is her second LP as Lolina, and it finds Copeland at both her most playful and her most obtuse. She amps up the lackadaisical...view item »

Lavender Hex
Lavender Hex

Upon being turfed out of their Berlin rehearsal space by a ‘slick boy pop band’ back in 2014, Lavender Hex put away their drums and guitars and started to experiment with home-taping.

The Hug
Patio

This limited-edition, self-released record from The Hug is a 12-track extravaganza, sweeping effortlessly from beautiful melodia to hypnotic instrumentation. Synths, drum machines, loop pedals, field recordings and tape machines make up the building blocks of this beautiful album. Utterly worth the listen. ...view item »


Faerground Accidents
Perfume

If it were 1995 then Faerground Accidents would be touted as the next Pulp or Suede but in 2018 they seem strangely out of place. "Perfume", taken from their recent (and not without moments of excellence) album 'Co-Morbid', a Bowie-esque slab of glam melodrama that would ha...view item »

Albert DeMuth
Supports Corporate Rights

Albert DeMuth here claims to be in support of Corporate Rights, although having listened to the single I’m not entirely sure how sincere he is about that. He sounds rather too bitter and sarcastic to be pro-Corporate Rights, riding upon a wave of fuzzed-up gnarly punk throb. Albert has se...view item »

Charlie Ulyatt is a Nottingham-based guitarist, in abstract but expressive form here.

Concretism
Town Planning

A spooky little record with little information offered up about who left it lying about, 'Town Planning' lives up to its mystery, collating archived audio from the Cold War era with more traditional but still expressively experimental sounds -- synths, loops and all that good obscuring stuff. The sound is detached and disengaged, as if the Cold ...view item »

Careful with that name lads or you'll have a litigious online retailer on your back. The Amazons create the kind of spiky indie gear that will probably guarantee a place on the Steve Lamacq show.

Evidently not a happy bunny, 'The Dove' returns with a bleak work which disturbs. The first track sounds a bit like an I Like Trains who have moved to Lithuania and go...view item »

Album

Album by Foto sees the fruits of long term collaborative efforts between Max Scott & Dylan Pharazyn come into existence. This is bedroom electronica at it's best. Tracks vary from cryptic instrumentals to all out folk-tronic pop songs. 'Inkling C' and 'Origami Swastika' see the duo at their best with sweet electronic sweeps, crunchy bass lines ...view item »

The Female Thief
The Female Thief

This is a folk CD. A mixture of playful, nimble-fingered, somewhat experimental minimal and fairly traditional plainsong-inflected folk, with confident singing and fingerpicked guitars with a bit of attack on the delivery that reminds me a little of Jason M...view item »

Echo Fisk
Water Sports

Punk Jazz Rock doesn’t sound too promising, but that’s how the press release describes Echo Fisk and Water Sports. It sounds more like experimental jazz to me, something in the vein of The Feed Back or something like that. I think the Punk element comes from the fact that the three N...view item »


Clorinde
The Creative Listener

Clorinde are a relatively new project made up of brothers Simone and Andrea Salvatici. It is obvious from the outset of 'The Creative Listener' that Clorinde are very serious about the music they make. 'Anno Domini' is like some traditional English baroque style jam. It's quite upbeat by comparison to some of the other compositions contained within...view item »

The American Dollar
A Memory Stream

We had a couple of CD's in a while back by The American Dollar. Here's their new one which cost us more than the previous releases due to the American Dollar (not the band). Their new CD is called 'A Memory Stream' and it's more of the same epic post rock with lots of Sigur Ros and some Morr Music indie friendly electronics chucked in here and ther...view item »

Zapoppin & Jaxson Payne
Split

This is a curious and very limited (100) split from two very different artists, each offering a piece of their own and reworking the other's track. Zapoppin's offering is a piece of mournful slow-paced harmonium that busts out some soothing and physical tones in a most lovely fashion, wh...view item »

Skitter+p6
joy/sadness/surprise/anger/disgust/fear

Well this is a weird little 7”. I’m quite interested in it right away because I really liked the split 3” CD Skitter did a while back with the brilliant ...view item »

Num9
Death In Portugal / El Baile 2011 (Extended Version)

Can't say I know much about these folks or the band they we're previously part of. The press release tells me they are as much influenced by Four Tet as the Pet Shop Boys which got me excited for second but on listening it's apparent that this has more in common with bedroom produced indie pop than dance music. Led by a fine piano motif with onl...view item »
