Stephen Molyneux
The Shape of Clouds to Come

Some softly spoken words from Stephen Molyneux. The Shape of Clouds to Come is the new release from this States-man. His heartfelt croon is aided by some calm strings, a delta styled guitar and warm percussion. It's somewhere between Grizzly Bear & Arthur Russell. Out on 12" vinyl from La Station...view item »

Dead Gaze
Somewhere Else

Dead Gaze is Cole Furlow. He gets this guy James Alexander Warren to drum with him. He sorta does that watery lo-fi semi-hypnogogic pop thing a bit like what Gary War does I guess. Or Ariel Pink? Yeah deffoes some of Ariel Pink, especially when he does his wonky falsetto wailing. 'Somewhere Else' is definitely a pretty nice tune, slow-paced and ...view item »

Blanche Blanche Blanche
Papas Proof

I remember enjoying these guys’ last one on Night People so I’ve got high hopes for this one here. It opens with a crazy bit of multi-vocal counterpoint which is quite poppy but things soon get synthy as it turns i...view item »

Johnny Hawaii & Frànçois Atlas
Oscille Divague

The shimmering ambience of Johnny Hawaii meets Frànçois Marry of electro indie-poppers Frànçois And The Atlas Mountains. Each member’s role taken further, heavier electronic beats and more abstracted ambient textures, overlapping on electronic experimentation an...view item »

Johnny Hawaii
New Age On a Board

New Age On A Board is an semi-ambient album with implied surf overtones and distant hovering tribal rhythms. Johnny Hawaii, operating out of Marseille, does a great job of creating a strong, fresh vibe while keeping his sounds subtle. LP release in an edition of 300, with attractive cut-out lettering on the minimal slee...view item »

Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier
An Age of Wonder

Those excellent Frenchies at La Station Radar have hit us up with some copies of this new LP of spooky nostalgic vibes from Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, with each side offering up a single long and evocative piece of music. Mixing the neo-spiritualist post-dub psychedelia of Sun Araw or ...view item »

The Garment District
Nature-Nurture (Sonic Boom Remix)

I’ve not heard these Garment District characters before but this 7” is out on the trusty La Station Radar and their album is on Night People AND this track has been remixed by the mighty ...view item »

Ela Orleans
Mars Is Heaven

Office favourite Ela Orleans is back with a whole 'nother album for us after her gorgeous debut and that bewitching split LP with Dirty Beaches, this time with a concept record based around Ray Bradbury's story 'Mars Is Heaven', in which aliens lure humans into believing Mars is literally heav...view item »

Fausto Maijstral
Naval Reserve

Had no idea idea what to expect from this other than the fact that the band are named after a character in a Thomas Pynchon novel and have been described as a ‘drone duo’. Sure enough, with the first track, drone is what you get- a solid, unwavering one out of which strummed guitar and delayed whispers gradually rise to the surface, ...view item »

Alastair Galbraith - Jean Jacques Palix - David Watson
Pure Speculation

In a sad indictment of some of the bollocks that passes for music these days I’ve just hurled the last three records off the stereo and out of the window (I wish). I’m only sticking with this as I’m a fan of Alastair Galbraith and once the bagpipe has done its thing it gets pretty interesting. Yup, the one long 22 minute piece ...view item »

Ela Orleans
Lost

I've had some really good records this week. Probably the most thrilling one by far is this wonderful album by the enigmatic & androgynous Ela Orleans. We had a copy of 'Lost' sat there by the stereo for weeks and only managed to squeeze time to listen to it in last week when our workload had slowed down a bit for Summer. I don't actually kn...view item »

Aaron Roche/ R. Stevie Moore / Shahzad Ismaily
Cylco Cardoray/ Synth Essiah

I've already reviewed the Ariel Pink/R Stevie Moore tape today so this is the second offering from “our Stevie” that I've had to tackle today. It's very far from being more of the same, however. On this ...view item »

Pink Priest
Swallow Your Dreams

La Station Radar are a good little label who don't get an awful lot of attention, but I'm pretty much always impressed with their output. This three-track 12-inch from Pink Priest comprises three long synth drone pieces which slowly morph and swell, developing in character as notes are t...view item »

Terror Bird
Shadows in the Halls

This one's got a bit of a gloomy 80s kind of a thing going on with its icy synths, simple programmed beats and gothy, melodramatic vocals. It's not really harsh enough to fit in with the whole mini cold wave revival that's been going on over the past year or so, reminding me more of some of Zola Jesus's poppier material.. Or maybe watching Labyr...view item »

Archers By The Sea
They Were Floating Over The Mountain, They Were Kings

Ahhhh the sound of waves cascading, fizzing and retreating while strange bells chime... This record is sounding blissed out. Our Brian once "I feel like I'm a muntered robot sipping White Russians on a beach in Honolulu" while listening to one of their records and I reckon that's an adequte description of the vibes these guys emmanate as I'm hav...view item »

Various
Compilation #1

This comp looks pretty cool. It's got tracks on by some of the latest hippest folks in the current underground... You Got Blessure Grave, Deep Sht, Cloud Nothings, A Grave With No Name, Ancient Crux and loads more. The tracks range from all synth fests, super lo-fi old sounding tracks which sound like a 1920's radio, blissful indie pop, fuzzpop,...view item »

Smegma
Smegma

Smegma are total leg-ends in my eyes. That a band coming from the legendarily demented Los Angeles Free Music Society scene has made something resembling a long-term career is pretty remarkable in itself, but factor in the general quality of their stuff and you'd be hard pushed to say that they're anything other than a bunch of real swell guys and/...view item »

Astral Social Club
Super Spraint

The Astral twins dish up another serving of uber-space station improv on a cute little 3" CD released as part of La Station Radar's 'Fake Tape series'. These little 'Fake Tapes' are presented in pseudo tape-like packaging and everything...well nice. Anyway, 'Super Spraint' is pretty minimalist in it's approach using only the slightest of elect...view item »

Archers By The Sea
Wizard Wizard

This is really lovely astral drone and looped dreamscapery with a bendy kosmische straw and a colourful funky tropical umbrella. The organ drone shimmers away at my temples, begging to drill gently into my brain and lobotomise me. I might let it. Would mean I can just sit here gurning all day whilst that lot have to do my reviews. Then i could just...view item »

The Gummy Stumps
Update From The Nostalgiasphere

Don't know anything about Gummy Stumps but i'm digging the name and the wild artwork. Vocals on opener 'Cameo' give them away as Glaswegian for sure. Somewhere between the madness of Killdozer (that'll be the singing that...), Pre Ubu and The Fall these glasgow folks make great upbeat, vocal focused avant new wave rock that sounds strangely fa...view item »

Ash
Jack Names The Planets

Dunno what's prompted this re-issue but we've just got Ash's debut single in on CD for the 1st ever time! As most people are already familiar with Jack Names the Planets, I won't attempt to describe it other than to say it's a charming tune and an indie benchmark. Contains 2 other tracks 'Don't Know' a...view item »
