The Retail Sectors
March of Incurable Workaholic

I like lathe cuts I like lathe cuts I like lathe cuts. Though they do sound shit... I still like them. I can't help my self. They're all lathed and cutty everywhere. On Distraction records is a lathe cut square 8" job by The Retail Sectors. They're everyone's (or should be) favourite Japanese post rock band and on this is my favourite track fr...view item »

Behind The Console... Mama Mia Chef!

Meanwhile, from the cottage industry that is October Man Recordings is a six track three inch cdr. This latest offering is from CONVURAZIO: "Behind the Console...Mama Mia Chef!". If you dig analogue noodling, synthetic beats and a nod towards the early electronic pop of say Human League/Heaven 17-sans vocals- then this'll appeal. The spri...view item »


Cheju: 'Hutton' (October Man) Is a 3" CD in an edition of 40. Piano led electronica with clicking percussion and synthesized strings make up this encouraging 4 track collection of vigenettes. Track three 'Moire' is likened to Aphex's 'Selected Ambient Works' by Mr Phil, which I think is largely due to the reverbed key refrains and sustained to...view item »

Greaterthanset EP

0>1: 'Greaterthanset' EP (October Man) As you can probably guess from the non de plume of the artist this is a electronic music release. Plumbing the vectors between the minimalism of labels like Raster Noton and 12k, this release begins in a slow motion animatronics vein.Visions of giant digital insects, electronic storms and the staccato dynam...view item »

Daydreams And Memories

Translations: 'Daydreams & Memories' (Octoberman) Mega limited to a mere 40 copies, this 8 track opus is so dreamy it's almost making me fall asleep at this keyboard. It's not that I really need the sleep it's just the opiated, dreamlike qualities of the lazy strum, padded synth washes and strung out humming choruses have a sleep inducing ...view item »

Silent Night

Just in is more goodness from the October Man Recordings stable by Lilienweiss. This is a 3" job limited to a paltry 50 copies and it's called Silent Night. You'll be pleased to know it's got cock all to do with Xmas and it is in fact a piece of contemporary new software enhanced music. The first track sounds like Sli...view item »

Ion Traffic

Now going more sinister into electronic noodlings I have Z-ARC CD 'Ion Traffic' on October Man recordings. Sounding a little like The Orb in places (cheers Ant) its the solo work of a Kris Derry. It's got a Doctor Who feel to it with a definite feel that aliens are about to land. Be nice to watch the stars...view item »

Cheju, Yellow 6, Alkin Engineering, Various
A Small Frame of Reference

I feel very tired so what better way to remedy that than a beautiful sleepy Compilation on Octoberman, A small frame of reference by various artists including CHEJU, ABSENT WTHOUT LEAVE, YELLOW SIX, USULA. Its dead cheap £1.95 and comes with a little booklet. The price of a posh Cornish pastie these days! All evolv...view item »

Ian Baxter
229, 294, 306, 337

Now IAN BAXTER's 229,294, 306, 337 on Octoberman limited to 30. Now this is the sort of album your boyfriend will put on for you when you've got PMT when all you really feel is Lightening Bolt. Its an atmospheric journey through guitar harmonics and looping stuttering pluckings. It says on the label that beer ...view item »
