The Rational Academy
A Heart Against You

Here's one of 2 releases this week on the Someone Good label. The first one is a CD by The Rational Academy which is a supergroup of sorts featuring people such as Lawrence English, Ben Frost, John Chantler, Benjamin Thompson and loads more I've never heard of. I'm not saying they're not important like... don't get me wrong. On 'A Heart Against You...view item »

Filfla
Flip Tap

Weirdly one of our (new) customers called me Philly today which made me smile cos it's completely inappropriate and I like things like that (being a bit wrong). I've not been called Filfla yet though but this chap has because he's called Filfla. He is in fact Japanese composer and artist Keiichi Sugimoto who may be better known for hi...view item »

Nikasaya
One Summerheim

Some perky & joyous minimalist chamber pop next from two Japanese sweeties, Nikaido Kazumi & Saya from Tenniscoats. Ingeniously merging their christian names to create the catchy moniker Nikasaya, 'One Summerheim' is a record of their meeting of minds a few months ago and is a CD awash with warm dinky melodies, cute harmonising, brittle fre...view item »

Anonymeye
Anontendre

This is nice. A new CD from Australia's Andrew Tuttle, AKA Anonymeye, here on his third release. It's bang up my alley as far as this kind of semi-ambient stuff goes. There's certainly elements of melody contained on this here disc but it's not pop as we know it. He uses a mixture of organic and electronic instrumentation to build up his rel...view item »

Akira Kosemura
Polaroid Piano

Pianos. What is it at the moment with bloody pianos? Anybody would think they were the cornerstone of popular music. Who do pianos think they are? I'll Rachmaninov you ya little Satie! Grrrr! I'd like to know what makes Max Richter so cool but not Richard Clayderman or Barry Manilow. And David Gray. He plays a piano doesn't he? And he can wobble hi...view item »

Deerhoof Vs OneOne
Split

I wish more bands were as good as DeerHoof. I reckon they are my new favourite band, finally knocking E.L.O off that sacred perch (a sacred perch sounds like a religious fish) The two tracks on this single took me to some different places. The Deerhoof side took me on a psychedelic trip, and the OneOne side took me into the realm of seventies Japan...view item »

The Rational Academy
Swans

Hear ye, hear ye, Swans is a CD by The Rational Academy and it's on Someone Good, which presumably refers to me. It's an immediately striking one, kicking straight in with a lovely, highly melodic psychedelic folk-pop sound that doesn't follow the current trend for burying everything under layers of effects but instead goes for a mixture of instrum...view item »

Aus
Light In August, Later

Another Japanese composer is Aus who we always do really well with. This is probably down to him being hugely adept at creating warm, brittle ambient flecked music with absorbing glitch & minimal post-rock shades. 'Light In August, Later' features the shimmer of soft drones, melancholy piano plinking, somnolent passages of drift & hushed st...view item »

Qua
Silver Red

Another good CD this week. There's a few out right now... who on earth said summer was quiet for music? Qua on Someone Good with their ace CD called 'Silver Red'. The cover is amazing with these weird cute disturbing mice things with huge sharp teeth and things. Well graphic design....Qua is a one man show who goes by the name of Cornel Wilzcek and...view item »

Lullatone
The Bedtime Beat

Also on the same label is a CD by Lullatone called 'The Bedtime Beat'. I think Lullatone have had things out on Audio Dregs before. Hey I'm trying to sound knowledgeable but the 'think' part of the last sentence means I've fallen flat on my face already. Here's some gentle electronic pop compromising of some tinkly tiblets, some delicate quirky b...view item »
