Alanis Obomsawin
Bush Lady

Constellation’s latest record is an essential find and arguably a massive political artefact. Alanis Obomsawin was a filmmaker and artist who devoted much of her life to telling the stories of Canada’s First Nation families. Before taking on directorial duties, however, she was a songwriter, and after a series of tireless excursions ...view item »

Efrim Manuel Menuck
Pissing Stars

After fully coming through on a long-term promise to deliver “a joyous noise” to a Godspeed You! Black Emperor record in the triumphant, communal, and all-loving ‘Luciferian Towers’, Montreal rock ‘n’ roller Efrim Manuel Menuck returns to the pits of doom. Th...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

I can’t believe I’m doing this but I am. This, in the grand scheme of things, is just another Godspeed humdinger. forty minutes instead of a cinematic hour plus. Plain rock music with no political self-sabotage -- no all-seeing preacherman, no devastating conspiracy. What Godspeed have been, from Allelujah to the now, is a steady ban...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s excellent second album, first released back in 2000. Awing in its scope and ambition, and uniquely optimistic and joyful within the band’s discography. I’ll never forget when I first heard the trumpets creeping in during ‘Storm’, or on ‘Sleep’ where a New Yo...view item »

Colin Stetson
Those Who Didn't Run

Colin Stetson is a name I know little about and, even though we sold a shed-load, I somehow managed to miss his much talked about 'New History Warfare Vol 1 & 2' albums. Stetson is a Bass and Alto sax player making a living recording/performing with the likes of Bon Ivor, Tom Waits, ...view item »

Carla Bozulich
Quieter

We rarely think about the physical toll music extracts from its adepts. Touring in particular is incredibly fraught - long days spent on the road in cramped vans, carrying heavy equipment, and most of all, regularly being in louds spaces. When an athlete is injured they slow down, and go into physio to work themselves back to full capacity. When...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada EP

Godspeed's most succinct document, Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada consists of two compositions -- one named "Moya", dedicated to one of the band's founding members, which builds around intricate orchestration towards a simple, cathartic climax (hey dudes, it sounds simple, but it's post-rock). "Bl...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
ALLELUJAH! DON'T BEND! ASCEND!

It was a genuine surprise to all of us earlier this week when the mighty Godspeed You! Black Emperor announced the near-instantaneous release of this new album after a full decade’s studio silence, and I’ve emotionally blackmai...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress

Godspeed have always spoken through others. Our favourite anonymous band, their rise has been charted through phonies opening our eyes, nostalgics waxing lyrical, helicopter crews circling in; the nameless of North America, trying to stake their claim on it. The idea of them as a political band is just that: an idea. It is us who talked and list...view item »

Do Make Say Think
Stubborn Persistent Illusions

Barnyard post-rockers awaken from their decade-long hibernation and realise that the world is kinda not so much what it was. People don’t get free passes for making the sounds they do anymore; you can’t be Explosions In The Sky and get away with it. Still, what DMST have always had against ...view item »

Jason Sharp
Stand Above The Streams

Jason Sharp made one of my absolute favourite records of its year in ‘A Boat Upon its Blood’, an epic tone poem of great harshness and gentility that swayed like disgruntled ripples in water. His approach to electro-acoustic music, as well as jazz and post-rock, informed a record evocative even by Constellation’s heavy-hearted ...view item »

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Hang On To Each Other

Hot on the heels of their latest album, Thee Silver Mt Zion Basketball Choir and Handstand Band return with a remix 12". It's not remixes of songs from the new album, though, that'd be too obvious. These are actually dramatic reinventions of 'Hang On To Each Other' from 2005's brilliant 'Horses In The Sky', transformed from a lo-fi campfire lame...view item »

A Silver Mt Zion
Born Into Trouble

The A Silver Mt Zion LP (Born Into Trouble) sounds really good on first hearing. Very floaty in places, incredibly intense at others, big dollops of atmosphere dripping from every available orifice. Folks from Godspeed in case you didn't know. And the vinyl comes with a free poster. Nice!...view item »

Ought
Once More With Feeling

When Ought first appeared on Constellation this year, they looked like a rough fit: a conventional, workmanlike band uncomfortably sitting next to some of the greatest experimental visionaries in contemporary music. Seeing them alongside polemic and often political acts such as Jerusalem In My Heart, ...view item »

Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld
Never Were The Way She Was

“No overdubs” is the phrase to watch with Colin Stetson, an artist who intones on saxophone to create sounds vocal and percussive, melodic and destructive. The reason we claim to be so impressed with his tectonic shifts is because they’ve all been conjured in one take, the result something like a one-man opera on ‘Ju...view item »

Eric Chenaux
Slowly Paradise

This guy is obsessed with Eric Chenaux and stunned by just how far he’s gone this time. Having slowly developed a spangly, highly affected guitar sound through a litter of pedals and a frantic knack for fret racing, Chenaux has spent his career revisiting and refining the folk songs he made early in his career. Records like ‘Sloppy G...view item »

Esmerine
Mechanics Of Dominion

Oh, this is lovely. From the opening strains of bowed, vibrato cello and fluid tinklings of piano all the way up to its dramatic coda. Continuing their trend of a new and remarkable record every two years for I-can’t-tell-you-how-long, are Esmerine -- the set-up of members from GYBE...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Yanqui U.X.O.

Godspeed are back with a brand new double album and compact disc. What do you think it's gonna be like then? Bet you could just guess what's it's gonna be like. More of the same I hear you cry??? Well yeh it is even with Albini at the mantle it doesn't sound drastically different. But it's most ...view item »

Those Who Walk Away
The Infected Mass

This one marks the start of a brand new year for my ever-beloved Constellation Records, who are setting themselves up to have another beautiful banner year. ‘The Infected Mass’ is the first entry on the imprint for Matthew Patton, a sound artist and score dabbler who’s recently written music for dance pieces and orchestras. Her...view item »

Joni Void
Selfless

I’ve had this record on my shuffle for a month, between a dozen other records of musical brickerbrack, and it officially makes no sense to me. ‘Selfless’ is the collage it promises to be, collated rather than composed from an endless slew of sources. Joni Void, a newly adopted pseudonym for recording artist Jean Cousin, is obse...view item »

Saltland
A Common Truth

Rebecca Foon is really the most Constellation of artists doing the most Constellation of things. Her many excellent projects have included doomslaying Godspeed alternates A Silver Mt. Zion, the wonderful and actively explorative neo-classical of Esm...view item »

Colin Stetson
New History Warfare Vol. 3 : To See More Light

Sax machine Colin Stetson has been turning ever more heads of late with his innovative and unique playing style, and finally this week we have the third in his ‘New History Warfare’ trilogy available for your consumption, hot on the heels of his excellent collaboration with modern sax legend ...view item »

Esmerine
La Lechuza

As Godspeed You Black Emperor gear up for their tour of the world's enormodromes, the deluge of related releases continues giving you plenty of time to keep your eyelids unfastened as you peruse the merchandise desk during the three and a half hour set. I saw them once in Manchester, I went in clean-...view item »

Ought
Sun Coming Down

There are some lyricists so good that come review time I just want to splurge their words, plus additional exclamation marks, onto the page. Ought’s Tim Darcy is one of them -- an orator much as a singer, tunneling out of a spoken word night and breaking into a punk gig. To that end, reiterating his words sucks -- to quote him takes the pe...view item »

Off World
2

Two years ago I was listening to the Off World room while moving house and let me tell you it was a bad combination. Sandro Perri’s electronic ensemble make music somewhere between motorik and fidgeting, putting the path ahead in plain view before suggesting you consider every other possible crevasse. I was moving from one...view item »

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band
13 Blues For Thirteen Moons

Both Phil and I tried to get into the latest Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-LaBand. This is way too clever for me as I just got confused at it starting on track 13 but it now makes sense as it is called '13 Blues For Thirteen Moons'. There are elements of this that are interesting but they're completely overshadowed by the grea...view item »

Do Make Say Think
And Yet And Yet

Also quite liked the Do Make Say Think LP but to me it wasn't enormously different to the others. But then I did only get chance to play it once this week. And Yet And Yet And yet is yet more experimental instumental guitar post rock stuff for you... They do it very well too.... bless.... ...view item »

Do Make Say Think
Other Truths

Do Make Say Think kick their new one off with one of their best tunes to date in 'Do' (the other tracks are called 'Make', 'Say' and 'Think'.. Yeah, I know). It's quite the little rocker, sporting chugging guitars and a cheeky little riff that keeps popping up like a persistent wee meerkat who just won't stay dead. It's quite poppy actually, remind...view item »

Eric Chenaux
Skullsplitter

Continuing Constellations’ winning streak with exceptional releases from Ought and Last Ex is a little album of massively deconstructed folky pop from the Canadian bard Eric Chenaux, chock full of melodica action, because you can’t get more folk than a melodica. Actual...view item »

Sandro Perri
Spaced Out

Sandro Perri’s ‘Impossible Spaces’ was an absolute revelation, a stunning mix of Jeff Buckley-meets-Arthur Russell indie-soul and loungey jazz arrangements with a silky languorous feel which has since withstood many, many plays on the home stereo. On this 12” three of his tracks are give...view item »

Do Make Say Think
Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn

Do Make Say Think are my favourite of the Constellation bands. They avoid the unrelenting pomposity of your Godspeeds but have the melodic and arranging know-how to create records that are varied, emotional and huge in scope. Being a wanker muso, I'd say that the best thing about this record are the...view item »

Jessica Moss
Pools Of Light

Please rejoice as another member the Silver Mt Zion orchestra releases a solo record in the spirit of terror and joy. Violinist Jessica Moss brings her violins to debut ‘Pools of Light’ and makes me feel crushed by doom from the first moment, her richly ominous playing introducing “Entir...view item »

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche
Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much

New Constellation so it’s obviously very good 10/10 let’s do this. Or, I guess I have to deliver at least as much impartiality as listening to the damn thing, so fine: Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche continues to make esoteric, hyper-emotional rock music full of all life. ‘Pas Pire Pop [I Love You So Much]’ is a recor...view item »

Siskiyou
Siskiyou

This begins like Arcade Fire doing an anti-folk number before falling into a hole that David Berman might have dug one day whilst thinking of directions to take the Silver Jews in. Or possibly a ramshackle downbeat hybrid of Bon Iver & Fire on Fire? This is the new project of some former & current Great Lake Swimmers members. It's all a ...view item »

Siskiyou
Nervous

Siskiyou use whispered lyrics, stacked acoustic guitars and stripped back minimal melody and drums to evoke a tightly-wound man haunted by something unknown. Inspired by lead singer Colin Huebert's year of illness and anxiety, the record captures the internal psychological terror and unease of his experiences. The deluxe 180g LP...view item »

Carla Bozulich
Evangelista

I don't think anything can prepare someone for this album. It opens up ways to feel that are so vulnerable, yet so necessary in this world in my opinion. A generous album is a vague description. The two tracks bearing the title like the album and later the group "Evangelista I" and Evangelista II" are such wonderful creatures, they bite ...view item »

Ought
More Than Any Other Day

Politicised Montreal indie rockers Ought have a debut album out on the legendary Constellation rex this week and it's pretty ace. This is straight down the line '90s indie rock with a slightly lo-fi physical immediacy to it that brings to mind bands like Rodan and June of 44 crossed wi...view item »

Automatisme
Momentform Accumulations

Prior to working here I had no idea that Constellation even released electronic music in any form. Yet here I am, sitting next to a pile of melted plastic bags listening to a soon-to-be-released angular ambient techno album that Robin apparently ‘didn’t understand’. And that’s coming from a philosophy graduate. It...view item »

Hiss Tracts
Shortwave Nights

Two debut albums in the space of a month from Constellation. When was the last time that happened? The LP of angular indie rock from Montreal's Ought is very good of course, but this Hiss Tracts one is a different kettle of fish entirely (I don't mean it's bad!). It's a droney affair from the veteran superduo of Dav...view item »

Off World
1

With a very apt name and a lot of synth-twiddling, Off World unleash ‘1’, one of the year’s most peculiar electronic records and by the way it includes a banjo player. One of three new instrumental set-pieces being released by Constellation (ever heard of ‘em?), it comes from the brain of seven improv pals, with skewed so...view item »

Jason Sharp
A Boat Upon Its Blood

God, it’s been so fucking long since I’ve been able to type-yell a review to the theme of “This new Constellation release is amazing!!!”. All year, the CST crew have been quiet, but now they hit with three brand new records for fall (call it autumn, if you must, but fall sounds so much better). Each record is ins...view item »

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Three: River Run Thee

Matana Roberts has been one of the most expansive artists of the last few years, crafting what she considers “panoramic sound quilting”, a phrase that by now feels totally earned: in three records out of a planned twelve documenting the socio-political history of America, she’s breached the sounds of free-jazz, spoken word, gos...view item »

Jerusalem In My Heart
If He Dies, If If If If If If

If If If If this isn’t essentially Constellation releasing themselves then I’ll be darned. The man behind Jerusalem In My Heart, as you may well know, is Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, producer/engineer extraordinaire and co-founder of Hotel2Tango, an honorary sibling of CST. His JIMH project has been following a path between Montreal and Bei...view item »

Esmerine
Lost Voices

The duo at the core of Esmerine have been making tense experimental rock music in one form or another since the old days of the long-absent Set Fire To Flames, carrying on into the dooming fractures of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and sister band ...view item »

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Kollaps Tradixionales

Efrim Menuck is a dense, tongue twister of a name isn't it? He's the guyzer who co-founded Gobbleseed you Blank Envelope and that. He's more known for fronting the ever-shifting Silver Mt Zion axis these days and they've a grand old release lined up for you Canadian apocalyptic rock headz. It's called 'Kollaps Tradixionales' and is lovingly forged ...view item »

Last Ex
Last Ex

You know. The psychedelic rock. That o-l-d psychedelic rock they have these days. It's new, but it's as old as the hills. Then you got yrrr desert rock, yr cosmic wig-out mad granddad rock. Then Ma baked a big kosmische pie. Granny knitted a synthesizer. The rest is on Julian Cope's website. Then you got Last Ex. Like, who the fuck are these guy...view item »

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche
Zubberdust!

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche, according to google translate, means "With The Sun In Her Mouth Outgoing"...I guess transposed into proper English it probably means "With The Sun Shining Out Of Her Mouth". Constellation seemed to go off the boil for a while, with most of their interesting contributions coming from already well-trusted faces...view item »

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter One: Gens De Couleur Libres

I seem to be getting a lot of reviews of apparently legendary people I've never encountered before. The latest of these is Matana Roberts's new offering on Constellation. It's hard to know where to start describing this, it's pretty all over the place, but the focus seems to be on Roberts's alto sax and vocals, with the album being an edited 60-...view item »

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Two: Mississippi Moonchile

The second part of Matana Roberts' projected twelve-part jazz tapestry is an extremely confounding and yet gorgeously structured work, based around four-pronged suites of free jazz, operatic vocals, smooth spoken word narratives and gospel chants. The record rises and falls around these passages of music to show the pe...view item »

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything

Formed by most of the key players in Godspeed You! Black Emperor ie. Efrim Menuck, Thierry Amar and Sophie Trudeau, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra have been creating music in one form or another for over 15 years now so this album is the culmination of a lot of hard work as a band and as gene...view item »

Carla Bozulich
Boy

Oh, Boy. Here's an album which really needs more than the perfunctory half-hour review I have time to give it, but that's how the release schedule works sometimes. So many records, so little time! Here the inimitable Carla Bozulich of Evangelista/Geraldine Fibbers notoriety delivers her "pop album" (her ...view item »

Sarah Neufeld
Hero Brother

Sarah Neufeld is a Montreal violinist best known for being a member of the Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre. Here she’s going it alone, travelling to Berlin to record a collection of solo violin pieces with the esteemed Nils Frahm twiddlin...view item »

Land Of Kush
The Big Mango

Osama Shalabi's project Land of Kush is where esoteric sounds congregate: his mix of free whatever-you-want (as long as its improvised) is met with vocal howls and hums, strangely programmed electronic work in one big sonic ambiguation. The Big Mango uses this lens of odd sounds to consider gend...view item »

Esmerine
Dalmak

If Norman Records’ sales were anything to go by, Godspeed You Black Emperor would be Top of the Pops. Esmerine are one of the Godspeed people plus a lady from A Silver Mount Zion (even more pretentious). The first track...view item »

Vic Chesnutt
At The Cut

Vic Chesnutt has the finest rock star name this week for my money, He sounds a bit like the kinda guy Nightingales should be mates with. He doesn't sound like it though. The Athens GA native is, like our own beloved Robert Wyatt, confined to a wheelchair but this don't stop him making soaring, heartwrenching gothic post rock and folk for the Conste...view item »

Saltland
I Thought It Was Us But It Was All Of Us

Everything you'd expect from a Rebecca Foon solo outing. Interesting strings, other worldly percussion, gentle vocals. Quite similar to her output in Esmerine, but different enough to warrant the different moniker. Very glad I bought this album, it's sits extremely well amongst the other Constellation releases. Another release that adds further ...view item »

Tindersticks
Claire Denis Film Scores 1996-2009

It's a lovely thing we got here, the complete Claire Denis film scores by our fave mumblers. Except there's relatively little mumbling to be found throughout this collection. Another side to the 'Sticks is more evident, their love of cinema and the power of incidental music to heighten & enhance the impact of a scene. It's lovely to know cul...view item »

Colin Stetson
New History Warfare Vol.2: Judges

You can count on one finger the number of good uses of the saxophone in long and varied history of music. The coda to 'Will You' by Hazel O' Connor notwithstanding, the instrument that was invented by mistake has usually turned up on everything horrible in the world from free jazz skronk to Patrick Wolf's latest mess. In the 1970's even keen sax...view item »

Sandro Perri
Impossible Spaces

You may be more familiar with Sandro Perri's work under the Polmo Polpo moniker. I missed the boat on his previous material under his own name so this is actually the first I've heard of it. He's certainly moved on since putting out his drone classic 'Like Hearts Swelling' a decade or so ...view item »

Evangelista
Hello Voyager

Carla Bozulich is one of those performers I'd like to class as an angry woman. Anyone remember those 're/search' books from ages ago? It had Lydia Lunch in and other such types talking about violence, death and menstruating... you know... a light hearted holiday read. Well if that book was being written now Carla would be in it I'm pretty sure. Her...view item »

Hrsta
Ghosts Will Come & Kiss Our Eyes

Here is Hrsta with 'Ghosts Will Come And Kiss Our Eyes'. Its the work of Mike Moya from God Speed You Black Emperor joined by Brooke Crouser of Jackie-O Motherfucker fame. Flip says it sounds like Christina Carter. It's a zoned out space hall with eerie underplayed guitars, awashed with reverb slow dancing around the echoy vocals. Organs drone, dru...view item »

Efrim Manuel Menuck
High Gospel

This is the bloke who elongated The Silver Mount Zion's set to even more mammoth proportions when I saw them last year with rambling go nowhere stories between songs like a coked up 80's Rod Stewart on a particularly gruesome edition of the Russell Harty show. I'm being overly harsh, of course, I was so tired ...view item »

Pat Jordache
Future Songs

This lo-fi TV on the Radio inspired home recorded pop is not what I was expecting for some reason but life is nothing if not full of surprises so as it's now on the stereo I'm happy to have a plunder through this lovingly crafted work. Pat Jordache has a history as a member of a band with the person from Tune-yards (and you can stick your daft c...view item »

Elfin Saddle
Ringing For The Begin Again

Elfin Saddle is the work of long time art and music collaborators Jordan McKenzie and Emi Honda and 'Ringing for the Begin Again' is their second record and first to be made available via Constellation Records. Constellation seem to be branching out a little in recent years and Elfin Saddle are a really appropriate signing for the label. The group'...view item »

Elfin Saddle
Wurld

Who are Elfin Saddle? This is a delightful & sumptuous package whatever. Seemingly they're an experimental folk/sound art duo (a 3-piece live) who also specialise in eccentric organic sculpture & stop-motion animation built around delightfully random detritus. This is the culmination of their work - a bizarre 23 minute film & some tr...view item »

Eric Chenaux
Dull Lights

ERIC CHENEAUX has a CD out on Constellation. 'Dull Lights' it's called & avant country / folk is his game. A large dose of Appendix Out/Alisdair Roberts, A spot of Lucky Luke in mushroom enhanced soundcheck mode on opener 'Skullsplitter' , a spindly Smog having a nervous breakdown....'Worm & Gear' is brilli...view item »

Eric Chenaux
Warm Weather With Ryan Driver

I've lost touch with Constellation these days, I've not even heard this guy before but apparently he's had a couple of other albums out on the label prior. I'm quite surprised at how straight-ahead folk this is but it's decent quality stuff. Definitely more on the light Americana end of things, the press release probably hits the bullseye when i...view item »

Hrsta
Stem Stem In Electro

That Constellation label are back with a CD/LP by Hrsta. Nice post rock stuff which starts off like Quickspace on mogadon being shat through a wind tunnel. As is the nature of this bleak & apocolyptic Canadian imprint, there's big desolate instrumental passages & a kind of neo classical longing present throughout ...view item »

A Silver Mt Zion
Pretty Little Lightning Paw

A Silver Mount Zion release a new mini album (though almost full price so thanks Constellation). Four tracks of pompous avant garde oddness. Me likes.... Hints of Godspeed and in the last track earlier Flaming Lips came to mind. Very interesting and if you like yr music big then this will suffice. Quality....view item »

Clues
Clues

From David Tibet to Unicorns.. Not such a leap. I vaguely remember that band from a few years back and apparently this Clues lot contains some ex members if that's of interest to you? In any case this self-titled album sounds surprisingly un-Constellation-ish, throwing about trebly guitars, crashing drums and a cool experimental indie sort of style...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Yanqui u.x.o

Godspeed are back with a brand new double album and compact disc. What do you think it's gonna be like then? Bet you could just guess what's it's gonna be like. More of the same I hear you cry???

Sandro Perri
plays Polmo Polpo

Moving swiftly onto SANDRO PERRI Plays Polmo Polpo which is a CD/LP on Constellation. Well it's a mini album of sorts. What you get for your money is 5 tracks totalling about 26 mins which doesn't seem enough considering the price. Mind you Constellation gear ain't cheap and they know you'll buy it anyway. The packaging on ...view item »

Evangelista
Prince Of Truth

I've been quite keen to hear 'Prince Of Truth' that latest offering from Evangelista. I never bought their last record but I do recall several moments on there were really very buzzing and had me making "phwoar" type sounds. Mainly the heavy moments that recalled the Melvins or something. Anyway this album was constructed in a fairly un-c...view item »

Hangedup
Kicker In Tow

Now we have the Hanged Up newie on cd and vinyl. As is the incestuous nature of these mysterious canadians, I'd bet me bottom teeth there's some folks from GYBE featured on this rather lovely record. Old Too Pure faves Long Fin Killie spring to mind immediately as do the 'Sp...view item »

Land Of Kush
Against The Day

Constellation always bring me the shit. There's not many records on the label I've struggled with and most I've thoroughly enjoyed. Here's another one by Land Of Kush called Against The Day. It's a side project of Sam Shalabi who's a stalwarts of the Montreal avant garde music scene. He's played in Molasses and the Shalabi Effect to name just 2 t...view item »

The Dead Science
180g Villianaire

A brand new signing to Constellation. In the absence of new Godspeed records (which is what you all really want from the label) youll have to make do with The Dead Science and they're new opus 'Villainaire'. The first tme I heard this I thought it was pretty good though and further playing has cemented this. It's epic... I'll give it that. Really b...view item »

Sandro Perri
Tiny Mirrors

Sandro Perri's 'Tiny mirrors' is essentially a singer songwriter album that's melodic and has a slightly jazzy undertone. It's melodic and soulful and is not unlike Tim Buckley in places. This guy simultaneously plays guitar and kick drum. I cant imagine doing that. Like patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time. My co-ordination is...view item »

Feu Therese
Ca Va Cogner

Feu Therese I'm told is some French Canadian God Speed related thing. Phil told me cos he knows everything about Godspeed related things. Second track on 'Ca Va Cogner', 'Visage Sous Nylon' is a Giorgio Moroder inspired synth pop track It's a bit of a strange one this... There's a bit of a 70's synth prog thing happening here along with experimenta...view item »

Black Ox Orkestar

If you didn't fancy the Jew Tang Clan record in this week yet you need some Hasidic misery in your life then look no further than the new Black Ox Orkestar CD on Constellation bringing together Jewish folk, the whole Constellation type orchestral post rock big pompous thing and 2000 years of misery and...view item »

A Silver Mt Zion
This Is Our Punk Rock

A Silver Mount Zion release their brand new spanking elpee and ceedee on The Constellation Records of Canada. Godspeedy type folks making post rock for the minions.
