Spirit Of The Positive Wind
Spirit Of The Positive Wind

What the hell is this madness? After the Georgia Sea Island Singers took me somewhere nice it's up to this super-group to drag me back to the fierce, nightmarish industrial landscape from whence I came. Then again this isn't the sound of Bradford. I don't know what it's the sound of actu...view item »

The Gate
Stench

The Gate's fourth record, the not at all repulsively-titled 'Stench', was recorded out in New York and birthed a few good twists and turns in the time between its inception and release. The power metal band went overboard with this one, bringing in touches of psych and funk, as well as their usual love of jazz. Weird world, my friends....view item »


Linus + Økland / Van Heertum
Felt Like Old Folk

Unclassifiable Belgian label Smeraldina-Rima begin the year with another subtle blend of folk, minimalism and improvisation from Linus + Økland/Van Heertum. Reeds, horns, violins and guitars are stirred together and mix into one another in Felt Like Old Folk’s elusive structure. Thi...view item »

Robbie Basho
Twilight Peaks

When it comes to guitar fingerpickers, few inspire such reverence as Robbie Basho. He was even commemorated on a superb tribute album recently with offerings from the likes of Meg Baird and Glenn Jones, which you'll agree is not to be sniffed at. Basho-heads have a real reason to celebrate to...view item »

Alex Monk
Indiscreet Mirror

Alex Monk follows ‘The Safety Machine’ with a second outing for Smeraldina Rima that features a bunch of guests (Sand Snowman, Gareth Jones and Steve Dowle) as well as an impressive array of instruments including personal favourites like the Novation Bass St...view item »


Joachim Badenhorst
The Jungle He Told Me

Belgian reed player Joachim Badenhorst has been involved in all sorts of projects over the years (including Baloni and Han Bennink Trio but the list is as long as my telescopic robot arm) and on ‘The Jungle He Told Me’ he’s going it alone for the very first time, offering a series of improvisations for clarinet, bass clarinet a...view item »

Alex Monk
The Safety Machine

This sounds gloriously bleak and haunting with acoustic guitar, organ drones and ghostly atmospherics. Alex's vocal and delivery occasionally recall good old Jhon Balance and I'm reminded of Coil on more than one occasion. As far as I can gauge the chap's only had a few CDr's out previous to this so let's hope the vinyl grabs some attention as t...view item »

Panicsville
A Dragonfly For Each Corpse

Chicago noise polluters Panicsville have been on the fringes of the confrontational theatre circuit for years now, dressing up in latex and throwing shit at their audiences, kind of a bit like Gwar or something but with better sounds. This lovingly packaged LP & 7" set is not what I was expecting. Unsettling indeed but not a barrage of squ...view item »

Nate Wooley
Trumpet/Amplifier

Everyone's well into big circles at the moment. Check the new Autechre album, Sunn's Monoliths and Dimensions, that No Age 12" and now this. Circles are pretty cool I guess, but personally I'm more diggin' the net form of the dodecahedron at the moment. What this guy's doing reminds me a wee bit of Florian Hecker, albeit with a completely diff...view item »

Peeesseye & Talibam!
Peeesseye & Talibam!

Ok, here we got ourselves a collaborative effort from then insane improvers Talibam! and the Gothic Junk folk experimentalism of Peeesseye, both emperors of the NYC improv scene playing in all sorts of outfits including the outstanding Storm and Stress. Anyway, after years of mutual friendship and touring activity they decided to get tog...view item »
