Ashtray Navigations
The Beak Stuck Out of The Snow

Time for some proper cosmic psychedelic spuzzle from Phil Todd. Immediately this doesn't feel as rough around the edges as I was expecting. The synths sound super icy and crystal like, most likely a refection of the bloody harsh winter weather experienced around the time of recording. This certainly feels like a more personal/ soulful album than ma...view item »

Fumio Kosakai
Earth Calling

Fumio Kosakai has been involved in all sorts of projects including Incapacitants and Tangerine Dream Syndicate, but not so many people know about his solo work. This reissue retrieves a cassette, of which only around 30 copies were originally made, and gives it t...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Dirt Mummies and Bloody Amps and Blood Mummies and Dirty Amps

Ashtray Navigations is Phil Todd and guest cohorts. He's from round these parts (West Yorkshire) and is rapidly becoming synonymous with brilliantly epic, sludgy soundscapes & vast psychedelic noise sculpting. This catchily titled CD on his own DIY imprint is as caustic as the furthest reaches of the Astral Social Club or the ricocheting sonic ...view item »

Various
Knurr & Spell : Being Psychedelic Sounds From Yorkshire

Ah, Yorkshire. Home of gravy soaker-uppers, whippets, flat caps, and some of the coolest psychedelic sounds around. Must be those funny mushrooms that grow in all the fields. This album features the works of four fantastic psychedelic artists including Moral Holiday, Foldhead, Shemboid, and Ocelocelot. Limited e...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Deadicated To The Sensory Armada

Ah, Phil Todd, Phil Todd. The ubiquitous improviser of the north. A man so practiced at playing solo that here in Yorkshire he's even had a phrase coined after him, “on your Todd”, to mean being all a-lonesome. Right here we've got a rare vinyl outing for the be-ponytailed one,...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Cinderella Stamps

Big week this one for Phil Todd and company with a bunch of releases on Memoirs Of An Aesthete plus a 7" dropping on Trensmat. Currently spinning is this limited four track CDr. Kicking off with 'The Ever-Circling Skeletal Kestrel Guitar' which consists of one finger piano, organ, bas...view item »

Weyes Bluhd
Shatterred Mirror/ Liquid Castle

Man this is some crazy ass muthafuckin' shit yo! Weyes Bluhd is the work of Philadelphia born Natalie Mering who creates mind bending improv compositions using home made/obscure instruments and vocals. I think she's done a little time in Jackie O' Motherfucker and Axolotl so she's no stranger to the age old skill of making a crazy racket. Shattered...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Caeduceus & Black Sal

Ooooh a red vinyl slab from Ashtray Navigations! 'Caeduceus & Black Sal' was originally a CDr release back in 2007. This is pretty buzzing actually (literally). The buzzes sound like pure electricity frazzling your brain but in a pleasurable way. This coupled with some super twiddling action make up a bit of super fuzzy mind meter. The flip has...view item »

The Piss Superstition
A Theme Park For Whatever Happened Before

I wonder what piss-related superstition this applies to? Like maybe going around the bowl in three clockwise circles before reversing back for one semi-circle when you go to the football or something maybe? Personally I just stick with wearing kit socks under my jeans (from the mighty Huddersfield Town's 1999/2000 kit if you're asking) but each ...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Ink Clouds And Axe Revealer

The Toddster is back with a new opus made publicly available to you via the modern medium known as CDR especially for you and it's limited to just 100 copies. I missed the first track due to the discussion re album of the week but I'm back on board at track 2 (Secretaries of The Future) which is a synthy proggy affair. Fans of Emeralds, Oneohtri...view item »

Nackt Insecten
A Site Specific Piece Of Avant-Garde Sound Art, Nothing To Be Worried About / Corridor Voyager (Quantum Odyssey II)

That Nackt Insecten LP on Blackest Rainbow from a few months back was really cool so I picked up the 'A Site Specific Piece Of Avant-Garde Sound Art, Nothing To Be Worried About / Corridor Voyager (Quantum Odyssey II)' 7" and CD set anticipating something equally as satisfying and I'm pleased to report that what I'm currently hearing is quite ...view item »

The Xenis Emputae Travelling Band
The Pyrognomic Glass

I was reasonably intrigued by this Xenis Emputae Travelling Band if nothing more for the name really. I barely know what any of those words mean apart from band. The Pyrognomic Glass is an LP by a chap called Phil Legard who also plays in Ashtray Navigations. Co incidentally the LP is released on Memoirs Of An Aesthete which is the label ran by Phi...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Sgt Peppers Mystery Four Twenty Hex Aurora Toilet

That Phil Todd Ashtray Navigations chappie has a new CD out this week called 'Sgt Peppers Mystery Four Twenty Hex Aurora Toilet'. Yeah I know....The music on the album is all analogue with all acoustic instruments aside from from a vintage synth. So you get harmonicas, drones and wooshes and some skittery wavey noises which are making me feel a bit...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Johnny Fuckoff Minotaur (Easter Exit 2)

Johnny Fuckoff Minotaur (Easter Exit 2) is a good title and this Ashtray Navigations album, packaged in a hand sprayed clamshell thingy, is a good album. I'm hearing a bit of a Spacemen 3 thing on this one, more so than the other stuff of his I've heard. Droning, repetitive guitar riffs are a big presence, either swirling around all indistinct in t...view item »

Ten Layer Terror

Great underground unsung heroes Ashtray Navigations are back in the hit parade with a new very limited (to 100) CDr called 'Ten Layer Terror'. If you are fan of their previous output then you will want to snap this up with immediate effect. Full of treated guitar experiments, ambient noisescapes, found sounds, industrial scrapings, electronic musin...view item »
