The Dead C
Rare Ravers

The Dead C hail from the famous music city of Dunedin in New Zealand, and, like many bands from there, initially released records though the legendary Flying Nun label. The trio have been experimenting with various forms of alternative/indie music for 32 years now, Rare Ravers is ...view item »

Arc Iris
Icon of Ego

Brooklyn label Ba Da Bing! (Julie Byrne, Katie Von Schleicher) drop the third LP from avant-pop group Arc Iris. For three people they sure do make a big sound on Icon Of Ego. Singer/guitarist Jocie Adams provides an anchor for the band’s complex, slightly math-ind...view item »

Sarah Davachi
Gave In Rest

Proving it's both a marathon and a sprint, drone artist Sarah Davachi puts out yet another record. Hot off the heels of the impressive baroque tone poem Let Night Come On Bells End the Day, Davachi makes the hop to Ba Da Bing! for a record of lonely, isolationist ambient music that refl...view item »


Hamish Kilgour
Finklestein

Hamish Kilgour was a member of the brilliant New Zealand band, The Clean with his brother, David. Finklestein is his second solo album. Whilst his debut, All Of It And Nothing was an intimate set of songs, Finklestein has production values of a Hollywood blockbuster, bringing to life a concept based on a story K...view item »


ANMLPLNET
Fall Asleep

One of only a few bands this spring to sing about the tricky business of sex with clouds. ANMLPLNET is the duo of Leah Wellbaum and Mickey Vershbow, and Fall Asleep is what they managed to create while living on opposite coasts of the US. With its dream-diary lyrics, warm texture and emotive crescendos, the record falls...view item »


Hawthonn
Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing)

With Coil's Jhonn Balance as a conducting force, it's never a wonder that the themes contained in Hawthonn's music tread into the esoteric, hypnagogic and ritualistic. The albums sits somewhere between electronic and doom, with a significant prowess for composition and form, for vistas of shadows and light....view item »


Secret Pyramid
Two Shadows Collide

Sentimental dronebody Secret Pyramid made a couple of glorious albums via Alex Cobb's Students of Decay label; his warm, blanketing fuzz productions were welcome to the cold industrial corners of our office. Two Shadows Collide is out on Ba Da Bing and continues the composers emphatic ambient phrasin...view item »

Tiny Vipers

Simon Joyner
Step Into The Earthquake

We all know that Simon Joyner is one of the best American songwriters don't we? Don't we? Well Gillian Welch, Conor Oberst and Kevin Morby all sing his praises and this love of his peers is much deserved. The Omaha songwriter has a dark soul which has drawn comparisons with ...view item »

David Nance
Negative Boogie

David Nance is a veteran of a form of music that is described as 'warble and hiss'. This is compared in the press release as somewhere between Canned Heat, Pere Ubu and Swell Maps. Quite the combination then. It's a rhythmically potent form of wiry post-punk that is wild, vibran...view item »


The Terminals
Singles and Sundries

These oddballs make music somewhere between psych rock, indie rock and post-punk and swish it all together until you feel like you're standing upside-down. A New Zealand super-group of sorts, their music is delightfully freeform, as evident in the blurred guitars of "The Deadly Tango". The songs 'Singles and Sundries' has to offer come from...view item »

TALsounds
Lovesick

As TALsounds, Natalie Chami improvises with synthesisers and looped vocals in intensive sessions. She then offers up the results without using overdubs, only mixing carefully to make each performance sound true to itself. With that in mind, Lovesick is a remarkably songish set of pop-abstract tracks. Re...view item »

Gailes
Seventeen Words

Two top-of-the-line melodic dronemakers team up to form Gailes: that’s Benoit Pioulard and Rafael Anton Irisarri. Seventeen Words was recorded during heavy winter times, and it has the special ability to sound both cold (the wind, the snow drifts) and warm (the thick walls and the...view item »

The Terminals
Antiseptic

New album from New Zealand alternative rock veterans The Terminals! It’s been a straight decade since their previous album Last Days Of The Sun, during which time there has been a small personnel change. But Antiseptic is still pure Terminals, dark and gritty and special. Out on Ba Da Bin...view item »


Eye
Other Sky

A five track record that, what many would consider, pushes the absolute boundaries of traditional rock music. Other Sky by the Dunedin quartet, Eye, is a nicely crafted, tight and intensely transcending collection of music that opens your mind to seeing the alternative. Available as an LP on Ba Da Bing!...view item »

The Dead C
Max Harris

Any ole New Zealand nuts in the house? I used to love these guys... mainly cos they didn't really sound like anyone else and they forged walls of noise and melody into some (sort of) coherent sounding records. The story behind this one is it's their 1st ever recordings as a band and they were made in the first 2 months of their existence. They w...view item »

The Dead C
Trouble

I should be able to just say “this is a new album from The Dead C” and you’d go and buy it straight away, but in case you need convincing… Trouble is a big fat double LP, calling to mind their classic Harsh 70’s Reality record in both size and sound. The Dead C ke...view item »


Ben Chatwin
Heat & Entropy

Strings form the underlying core of this album: rubbed, bowed, strummed, prepared, and attached to a wide array of instruments from pianos to quasi-pianos to guitars to mandolins. Lovely strings! And some electronics too. Ben Chatwin has done a great job harnessing these many textures in service of the curious melodies of He...view item »

Wabi Sabi

An unusual album this one. Cross Record are husband and wife and Dan.

Comets On Fire
Comets On Fire

The self-titled debut album of Comets On Fire, reissued at last on the always-worthwhile Ba Da Bing label. The band make genuinely-deranged sounding psych-rock in case you didn’t know, the throat-shredding vocals and the loud, reverb-drenched production fighting each other to be the most int...view item »


Natural Snow Buildings
Terror's Horns

Very exciting times as a brand new Natural Snow Buildings announce a new record on Ba Da Bing! Terror's Horns is a relatively brief excursion for the duo, and is a little less droney than most past efforts.

They're a very interesting prospect too. They take the ...view item »
