Ryan Garbes
Freedom Now

Garbes used to freak it in Raccoo-oo-oon and these days in Wet Hair. Both bands have laid down some killers in their time but I've not heard Ryan perform solo until this moment. I guess he's muti-tracked all his playing here, giving the drums a good old beating, hammering away on the trusty guitar and even going to town on the organ. Initial...view item »

Cam Deas & Jack Allett
Outgrowing The Wretched Cradle

Sheffield (hurrah for the North!) institution Blackest Rainbow gives us its latest missive, a collaboration between noisenik Jack Allett and guitar twiddler Cam Deas. Basically the premise is that Cam Deas twiddles around on the guitar while Jack messes the whole thing up with tape manipulations. It's not an easy listen as you might imagine....view item »

The Cosmic Dead
Rainbowhead

Typically wild new action from The Cosmic Dead, the Glaswegian psych-heavyweights. Rainbowhead features the group raging their way through jams that are weighty, frantic, riff-tastic and experimental all at the same time. This LP is pressed to ‘coke bottle clear’ vinyl (ooh!) on Blackest Rainbow, in a limite...view item »

Brooke Blair & Will Blair
Live Cargo: Original Score

Brooke Blair & Will Blair (Blue Ruin, Green Room) release another dramatic film score, with the soundtrack to 2016 thriller Live Cargo. The film is a starkly dark, monochrome picture portraying relationship ...view item »

Isidore Ducasse
Isidore Ducasse

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is one busy bee, running the excellent Root Strata label and playing in The Alps, Tarantel and The Holy See. Over the years he's amassed a very impressive catalogue to say the least. Under this alias he's working with William Trevor Mo...view item »

Voltigeurs / Black Sunroof / Skullflower
PSH

Matt Bower (together with his erstwhile companion Samantha Davis) makes so much music under so many different project names that we are now in the somewhat absurd situation: essentially, this is a three-way split with himself. All the tracks are slightly different kinds of crushing psychedelic noise-heavy, natur...view item »

Usurper
What Time Is It? 1000 Bux.

Lying awake at 5.30 each morning certainly gives you stuff to think about. For example,  what is the middle spike bit of a record player called? (A spindle, apparently). Is it possible to invent a band worse and more annoying than Foals? (No). Do music writers by law have to pretend to like Vampire Weekend? (It seems so). And finally how do...view item »

MV & EE
Shade Grown

Vermont psych jam rulers MV/EE are back with an LP, featuring a few big psych monsters in the mix such Jeremy Earl (Woods/Woodsist), Herbcraft, Rongoose, Carson 'Smokehound' Arnold, Doc Dunn, Mick Flower (...view item »

Bong
Idle Days On The Yann

Wow, this vinyl looks pretty amazing. It’s a gold/black swirl and it looks like it’s been made with magic. It is of course those stoner doom merchants Bong, with some rumbling deep space jams which were recorded in the summer of 2009. You’re probably used to hearing Bong releases with so much intensit...view item »

Andrew Liles
Monstrous Medical Mishaps (Horrendous Hospitals and Disastrous Dentistry)

The ever busy, ever mystic Andrew Liles (of Nurse With Wound and Current 93) is dabbling into Matmos territory with the latest installment of his Monster series, which has a medical theme. Monstrous Medical Mishaps (Horrendous Hospitals and Disastrous Dentistry) uses ma...view item »

Ben Nash & Sophie Cooper
Alchemy

The ever pulsating musical garden of delights that is Blackest Rainbow proudly present a CD of shimmering guitar textures & drifting, abstract musings from the finely twinned duo of Sophie Cooper & Ben Nash. Thought provoking shards of echo-laden scree mix it up with minute slivers of dusty guitar drone before opening into a peaceful cleari...view item »

William Fowler Collins & James Jackson Toth
Under Stars and Smoke

William James Fowler (Mesa Ritual) and James Jackson Toth (Wooden Wand) each imbue their music with the atmospheres of their respective home states New Mexico and Kentucky. The result, as heard on their debut collaboration, the Under Stars and Smoke LP, seems to be a my...view item »

Taiga Remains/ RV Paintings
Split

Another smashing double header split LP from the Blackest Rainbow stable next. Taiga Remains (Alex Cobb who runs the Students Of Decay label) are up first with a sprawling atmospheric piece called 'Mengku From Mengsa', all shimmering metal bowls and cosmic drone. The acoustics on this vinyl are just terrific and the general aura of this particu...view item »

Miminokoto
Otomejima No Otome

Miminokoto are a trio with some serious pedigree, bringing together members of Acid Mothers Temple, Astral Travelling Unity and Che-SIZU for a blasted sounding psych-rock trip. These guys know how to do it. Otomejima No Otome is pressed to some very fetching 180g pink a...view item »

Aleix Pitarch
Canis

The soundtrack to a 15 minute stop motion film of the same name, Canis. To add to the eerie, dark atmosphere of the film, Alex Pitarch created 15 minutes of drone and dense industrial sound. A 10” in coloured grey and white swirl vinyl, hand numbered, liner notes from Robert Nevitt of the Celluloid...view item »

MV/ EE, Hush Arbors, Various
Menagerie Volume 1

'Menagerie #1' is (I think) the first compilation to come out on Blackest Rainbow and it's a collection of new material and live tracks from Cam Deas, Hush Arbors, Winter Drones, Beequeen, Rivulets, The Skygreen Leopards, MV & EE With The Golden Road, Spoono, Jerusalem And The Starbaskets and Ben Nash. You know the score. Ltd to 500....view item »

Usurper & Sticky Foster
II

Am already regretting not being called Sticky Foster for the years I've been alive. It feels like a wasted opportunity. Here Usurper (Ali Robertson and Malcy Duff) combine forces with Sticky to make one of the craziest most experimentalist things I've heard in ages. It's one of those albums that sounds like it's just some people fucking about to...view item »

Spill
Where You Aren't

Latest Blackest Rainbow endorsed CDr of head stabbingly fine noisemongering comes from a mysterious duo that have been accused of Yorkshire dwelling but have titled their 3 brooding slabs of dystopian industrialisms & progressive noise in spidery Welsh, like Wales is the new Norway and that (so your guess is as good as mine as to their origin?). ...view item »

More loveliness courtesy of Blackest Rainbow corp...this week it's a limited (that's 70 copies folks) CD-R release from a newly formed three piece instrumental, improv group consisting of Robert Horton, Lisa Cameron and Douglas Ferguson.

Ali Robertson's Ludd Quest
Don't Turn Your Hog Out

Urgh, you fucking nutter Robertson. Who do you think you are forcing your choking, gurgling, whistling, farting, pissing, dog torturing, failing badly to blow up a balloon noises down my ears? If you don't know I'll tell you: you're Mr Silly Billy 2011. That said, I can't deny that you're pretty good at being silly and you seemed to provoke Bria...view item »

Ian W
Oslo Solo

Ian W: 'Oslo Solo' (Blackest Rainbow) Is a six track document of 'spontaneous composition' for solo guitar and FX pedals and is one of five releases we have this week from this freeform cdr imprint. Limited to sixty copies, these tracks range from the extended jam and sound explorations of the free-rock/noise vein of the likes of Wooden W...view item »

Eyeballs
The Invisible Castle

Remember those "Magic Eye" pictures??? I was convinced my friends were bullshitting me that they could see stuff, until one day it happened…. There was thee unicorn. It genuinely felt like real magic, so exciting (I was mega stoned mind). So this brings me on to the Excellent Eyeballs CD (The third for Blackest Rainbow) 'The Invisi...view item »

Sindre Bjerga & Robert Horton
Can't Go Fast Enough to Get There Early

  Hello. Straight in with it this week. Am totally feeling this Sindre Bjerga & Robert Horton CD on Blackest Rainbow. Am not massively familiar with either artist. I've heard bits by 'em and liked what I've heard but many releases have passed me by. They're both pretty prolific artists. Here the 2 experimentalists joining forces to make so...view item »

Brooke Blair and Will Blair
Blue Ruin - Original Soundtrack

Brooke and Will Blair are spooky brothers who actually had nothing to do with that witch project everyone goes on about. They scored the film Blue Ruin and filled it with crystalline drones that shimmer over the scenes as if wind were feedback. It's fitting, all this ambient fear-mongering, for a film foc...view item »

Unlikely Mothers

Brand new double LP from the duo of Caleb Mulkerin and Colleen Kinsella, who also play in Cerberus Shoal and Fire On Fire. The duo also performed on Michael Gira's Swans LP, The Seer in 2012. Based out of Portland, Maine, Big Blood has dropped a ton of stunning self released CDs and cassettes since 2006 as well as some fantastic vinyl releases f...view item »

Celer
Dwell In Possibility

I think I'm right in saying that this is Celer's first vinyl album? And unsurprisingly it contains a whole lotta sweet, sweet ambience. When I saw the artwork I wondered if it might be a sort of sister release to the amazing Engaged Touches but it's actually got quite a different, darker, feel on the whole. I guess if you follow through with the...view item »

Cam Deas
Blind Chance

Mr Deas returns to Blackest Rainbow with a heavy duty, high quality slab of wax which is a little different to his previous releases. The LP comprises a single improvised acoustic guitar piece and in the process displays his string plucking skills brilliantly. Here he is less like Fahey and more in fellow Sheffield improviser Derek Bailey mode...view item »

Andrew Liles
Wanton Wives, Monstrous Maidens and Wicked Witches

Andrew Liles' new work stands in thrall of horror films, conjuring all things macabre at the same time. Horrific vocals are smeared through 'Wanton Wives, Monstrous Maidens and Wicked Witches', evoking a siren song leading us to unwanted shores. Strings and harp play out of tune with one another in a cursed, disorientating swirl. Some ...view item »

Time Dilation

Another batch of audio cookies fresh out the Blackest Rainbow oven and I have two of them to munch on. First up is a CD by Robe. Now I'm not usually one to judge a record by its cover but the photo of crucifix grave stones and the medieval style font have me thinking this aint gonna be no bubblegum pop effort. So I hit play on 'Time Dimension' and ...view item »

Deas & Denton
Deas & Denton

I want to review this but we're all being distracted by looking at German teenybopper magazine covers from the 80s - Don Johnson seemed to have quite the fanbase there in those days, even Hasselhoff's got nothing on him. Anyhoo this is a bit of a curveball for anyone who might buy it expecting Cam Deas to be contributing his usual amazing acoust...view item »

Twinsistermoon
The Hollow Mountain

Twinsistermoon is Mehdi from Natural Snow Buildings, the male counterpart of this beloved French folk/drone duo who's gentle, otherworldly voice often has him confused with a little pixie lady that lives in some spectral forest glade with a battalion of fiercely protective woodland animals. His hugely limited 'Hollow Mountain' LP from earlier this ...view item »

This record is utterly bonkers. Totally out there improv jazz psychedelia featuring drums, saxophone and two upright basses. Yeah, two.

More weird and wonderful vinyl from Blackest Rainbow with an almighty Attar Cups Ltd numbered 'Untitled' LP which is a collaboration of Nemo of Drona Parva and man behind Time-Lag Records, Sparrow Wildchild of The Bummer Road, and the guys from Visitations. This is a jam based record (jam based products rule, just think of the Jammy Dodger) but is ...view item »

David A Jaycock
Presets

...I broke my leg in two places, My doctor says I should stop going to those places..there's nothing like a shitty joke to liven up proceedings. This David A. Jaycock sounds like he needs some crap gags to turn his frown upside down. I don't know the feller, he could be the happiest man alive, with a basket of puppies and clothes made of sweets ...view item »

The Hunter Gracchus/ Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau
Split

I don't know anything about Kommissar Hjuler but he seems to like making funny noises on the guitar and battering tapes into submission while his Frau (Mama Baer) does loads of wailing and groaning over the top. Who wouldn't, really? His playing style fluctuates between punctuative improv parps and occasional actual riffage (harsh and heavily di...view item »

Jazzfinger / Culver and Fordell Research Unit
Split

More wax on Blackest Rainbow in the form of a split from Jazzfinger / Culver & Fordell Research Unit. The Jazzfinger side is a long trip to the darkside with some serious electric guitar clanging with a sweet metallic sound and drones underneath. Some controlled feedback and some harsh doomy sounds that are fitting with lovely gruesome illustra...view item »

Acid Birds
Acid Birds III

A superb double whammy wax hit this week from BR, the first of which is rotating right now. Acid Birds is the work of Andrew Barker (drums and percussion), Jaime Fennelly (harmonium and electronics) and Charles Waters (alto saxophone and bass clarinet). Things get straight into action with some clattering free j...view item »

Moon Unit
Hell Horse and Heady Stratus

I've only ever heard the 'New Sky Dragon' LP and know little about them other than Ruaraidh Sanachan from Nackt Insecten and Andreas Jonsson of Lanterns are members along with Peter Kelly. The first side opens with the epic 'The Solar Skull' which is an expansive, swirling psyche-fest with big wah-wah guitar. 'Mother's Ruin' increases the intens...view item »

Black Eagle Child / Donato Epiro
Split

More Blackest Rainbow goodness in this week. This time it's a split from Black Eagle Child and Donato Epiro, two master guitar strummers/pickers. Black Eagle Child is the work of Michael Jantz who captivates with his immense guitar picking skills. Layers of accordion drone, occasional glockenspiel and the odd use of a field recording or two give...view item »

Jack Allett
The Collapsing Middle

In case you didn't know (and you more than likely didn't) Jack Allett is Spoono, who you may have heard of after previous releases on GPS and Blackest Rainbow. He's one of those man and guitar types who makes really intense ragas for you to get wasted to. I'm not sure why he's no longer Spoono and now Jack Allett but I guess that's not too impor...view item »

Natural Snow Buildings
Chants of Niflheim

Here we have a new release from everyone's favourite Gallic drone duo Natural Snow Buildings, one that is some kind of Record Store Day (copyright: the man) release but isn't part of the main thing or something hence we are allowed to sell it now to you lucky, lucky people. I've heard th...view item »

Starving Weirdos with Tom Carter and Shawn McMillen
Live At The Accident

For some reason the collaboration between Tom Carter, Starving Weirdo's and Shawn David McMillen (Warmer Milks) seems, for me, difficult to imagine, especially when Brian comes over distracting me by laughing with a massive gob full of chocolate digestives looking like a deranged Bradfordian cookie monster... Anyway as soon as I start listening it ...view item »
