Through Broken Summer

It's only a new record from Epic45, my favourite Staffordshire-based post-indie rock band. I can only imagine how beautiful Through Broken Summer will be if their other albums are to go by. You can already hear the calming, yet oddly satisfying sound permeating through your brain, melting your very core. Available on vi...view item »

My Autumn Empire
Oh, Leaking Universe

July Skies/epic45 member Benjamin Holton drops a solo LP under the guise of My Autumn Empire. Anyone who’s copped an earful of previous MAE LPs will be expecting plenty of lush, folky acoustic guitar on Oh, Leaking Universe. They won't be disappointed, but th...view item »

A Sentence

Field Harmonics

Field Harmonics is the solo project of Epic 45's Rob Glover and here he deconstructs the sound he's been building up to on his earlier two electropop influenced LPs. This has led to a new sound more fluid and more abstracted. A deconstructed take on where he was heading. Let's call this a fresh start.  ...view item »

Charles Vaughan
Pylon Reveries

The pylon is curious thing, central to modern life and yet also indisputably distant and alien. Inspired by these monoliths is Pylon Reveries, a work of hauntological majesty by Charles Vaughan, a fictional man associated with epic45. Lots of ominous electrified countryside atmospheres to get lost in he...view item »

They Go Boom!!
Home Electronics : Singles and EPS 1991 - 1997

They Go Boom were a 90's pop duo who combined the Sarah Records-led indie-pop of the time with pulsating synth pop more in tune with early Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys. This collection compiles the music from the five EPs they released during their lifetime and will appeal to fans of home made...view item »

Against The Pull Of Autumn

This is the first record I heard by epic45, and the third of their spectacular vinyl rereleases. I bought it based on its cover because I was a 16-year old kid who thought unfocussed landscape pictures were cool. Luckily, Against the Pull of Autumn still has that penchant for nostalgia and direc...view item »

May Your Heart Be The Map

Epic 45: 'May Your Heart Be The Map' (Make Mine Music) Is an endearing collection of songs that are composed to evoke memories of a long lost childhood.

At turns pastoral, reflective and nostalgic it remin...view item »

My Autumn Empire
The Visitation

There's some very pretty pastoral psychedelic pop business on this new CD from My Autumn Empire, the one out of Epic45 who's not EL Heath, whose previous 'II' album was quite popular if I remember rightly (nor the one who Field Harmonics - Clint). H...view item »

Monument EP

Epic45 are back with a new EP! Well I say new, four of these tracks have been released before a couple of years back on Monoscope and the other two are an ISAN remix and a reworking of the title track featuring Disco Inferno’s Ian Crause, but that’s new enough for me....view item »

E.L. Heath

Wow, El Heath has really upped his game on this latest offering. The Epic 45 lad has previously churned out some thoroughly charming pastoral psych-pop under his own name, but this new album seem an altogether more ambitious. With a wide cast of friends assisting him, the Shropshire-based songwriter has put together...view item »

Field Harmonics

In a sign of the audience-splitting effect that this new album from Epic 45's Rob Glover is likely to have it fell on me, by far the least experienced of our venerable reviewing staff, to offer my services as an objective gun for hire. Or, as Phil put it, "you can be the review bike". I think it's fai...view item »

Charles Vaughan
Documenting The Decay

Here's a CD on the Epic 45 curated Wayside & Woodland label.

P. Manasseh is an artist who divides his time working with renowned Brum post-rockers Epic45 and 4Series, apparently “a dub act”. This here CD is a really nicely packaged thing that is comprised of some scintillating hypno-tones, shimmering ambience, subtle field recordings and...view item »

Bracken / Bibio remixes

Epic 45 are those cooler than thou post-post-rock chaps who wang an album or EP out occasionally to be consumed rabidly by you, the hungry music vulture. Now they've a limited remix 12" in a variety of sleeves, one for each season of the year. I remember when we used to actually have seasons in this country rather than the schizo mulch of cond...view item »
