Stave

Sunil Sharpe
Cadya

Chief of cruel techno Sunil Sharpe brings more of his unkind vibes to the world with 'Cadya', his new 12" for Trensmat. There's not much time to collect yourself through these suffocating, claustrophobic tunes, going in at 4/4 but coming out as some of the most unforgiving dancefloor cuts out there. Recommended for fans of the dark electronic ae...view item »

AnD / WHOK
Valved remixes EP

An EP of raw and abrasive industrial techno to pummel both mind and body with here. This is the first remix 12” on Trensmat, a by-product of the label’s continued incursions into techno territory. On the first side you get AnD remixing Valved’s ‘Tipping Point’, which strips the original (all of which are available a...view item »

Carlton Melton / Mugstar
Company / Black Fountain

Bit of an exciting one, this. Both of these bands are consistently strong performers on the modern psych landscape, as you're probably already aware if you're reading this, and on this split they both deliver quiet similarly paced repeato jams with tribal rhythms and not many notes, pick...view item »

Stefan Jaworzyn

Love Cult take Druss
Yr Problems

This LP has four collaborative tracks between Russian electronic darksters Love Cult and Druss from Gnod, with a couple of non-collaborative tracks each as well. It's pretty hard to tell where their individual work ends and the collaboration begins though. I've just made the mistake of reading the press release and it'...view item »

A.M.
Dragonfly

Trensmat take a wee break from the outstanding industrial techno emissions of Dwellings and Stave with their second (I think?) release from A.M, better known to his buddies as Anthony Milton. He’s previously had a ton of gear out on his very ow...view item »

Dwellings
Dont Say Nothing

Those of you with an ear to the stoner rock ground will be aware that Gnod have evolved from the basic stoner riff machine they once were into some kind of blackened cosmic techno explorers, as evidenced in their recent Gnod Presents... Dwellings and Druss LP. Bassist Chris Haslam is the Gnodder behind the ...view item »

GNOD
Presents... Dwellings & Druss

I just reviewed an ambient record by Dirty Beaches, and now I’ve got a bit of dark techno from Gnod, I’m starting to feel like I’m in some kind of alternate universe, although to be fair Gnod’s last offering on that split with Shit & Shine was more than hinting at a bit of a techno d...view item »

Astral Social Club
Electric Yep

Taking the quality of the Astral Social Club catalogue into account, to say that this is probably my favourite record by Neil Campbell's alter ego is a bold statement. The man's hit the jackpot with this one, arguably his most focused and refined statement to date. I conti...view item »

My Cat Is An Alien
Alien, All Too Alien

Dauntingly prolific Italian brothers My Cat Is An Alien have been freaking people out with their “instantaneous composition” improvisations for many years now and collaborated with basically everybody, but it’s good to hear they’re still on fine form on this stupidly limited...view item »

Scheming Things

The reliable Trensmat this week follow their recent techno-bangin’ Gnod 12” with this lengthy debut EP from The 15 Dead Minutes, a trio whose “post-electro, nu-tech-industrial sound aesthetic” (says the press release) had up until now only been experie...view item »

The Telescopes
Black Eyed Dog

Evan Caminiti
Distant Lights

A couple of expertly crafted visions from one half of the duo Barn Owl who of course had that great LP out on Thrill Jockey. The title of this is fitting as Evan's music has always given me the idea of light at the end of the tunnel, a distant glimpse of sunrays peeking through the fog. Evan's guitar constructions always maintain a ghostly prese...view item »

TLAOTLON
Squirt Image Flex

Trensmat are never ones to disappoint the lads at Norman's. Pretty much all the artists that pass through the label are of interest to some...if not all members of staff. This week they hit us an LP of psych-techno gumminess from mysterious new artist and NZ resident Tlaotlon. You may reme...view item »

Expo '70
Sunglasses

Here's a brand new 7" on Trensmat by Expo 70, called 'Sunglasses'. Not heard of this chap before. I cracked the single on though and was knocked back by the dark psych fuzzy drones which blew into my ears. This is some well intense and spooky sounding noise music. It sounds like someone is sat on a keyboard while someone else is dropping weigh...view item »

Whirling Hall Of Knives / Tlaotlon
Synapse Snaps / Attitudes Blankets To Nada

Ahhh...cosmic wankery...it's been too long. I've missed being warmed by your sonic blasts and embraced by your shifting frequencies. I've been in the company of what you might call 'normal' music for a few weeks now and I want to feel the affectionate touch of solar winds and shudder as the...view item »

Mudhoney / Mugstar
Sonic Attack (Motorheads)

I get the Mudhoney/ Mugstar split 7" on Trensmat from their Sonic Attack Series. The Mudhoney tune 'Urban Guerilla' was recorded for a Peel session and first broadcast back in 2002. It's a no nonsense balls out rocker dripping with testosterone and reminding me of MC5. It's a gargantuan monster that's literally tearing up the office. They soun...view item »

Various (Heavy Winged, Bardo Pond, Cheval Sombre etc.)
Trensmat Records : Every Noise Has A Note

Trensmat has released some excellent records over the years. The only drawback is that you can't get any of 'em as they were mainly super limited lathe cuts which came and went quicker than Alan Wells (anyone remember him?? boy he was fast!). Anyway now you can wipe those tears away from your faces and be happy that Trensmat have compiled some of t...view item »

Ashtray Navigations (a.k.a Leeds's very own pony-tailed improv superstar Phil Todd) returns with another slice of astral fun courtesy of the Trensmat label. This rare 7" outing features three new cuts, all of the (awesomely) cosmic variety. The A-side 'Mon...view item »

The Shining Path
Live At The Voltaire Commune

The Shining Path: Live at the Voltaire Commune (Trensmat) 7" w/ CD inc 4 videos and audio of the vinyl tracks. High end drone tones and noise scree that emits an enveloping almost vocal-like tone. This is a really good example of the creative use of noise. One that's sculpted rather than just blasted hell-for leather. The tones just cycle arou...view item »

Astral Social Club
Snaefell

Astral Social Club's Neil Campbell returns with a more than welcome slab of 7" wax filled to brim with alien space jams and cosmic chaos. 'Snaefell' kicks things off in a swirl of eternal synth drone punctuated by subtle dub tones and ever evolving organ arpeggios in a variety of tempo's and shapes. This is white washed in a shower of cosmic fir...view item »

Black To Comm
Incidents

Black to Comm is the chappie who runs the Dekorder label and he's a drone-meister indeed. On Trensmat, he pulls two 7" size nuggets out for your delectation, both spilling with sharp minimalist structures & imaginative sound design. It all sounds pretty scintillating & richly textured but for once I can nowhere near match the eloquence...view item »

Another of the 3 7"'s released this week in the Trensmat Hawkwind covers trilogy is the Bardo Pond/ Kinski split 7". Yep lets unleash the beast of Hawkwind to a load of psyched out funsters who are getting into the likes of Magic Lantern and Wooden Shjips. The fuzzy psyche space rock revival is happening whether you like it or not. I quit...view item »

Mugstar

Blooming heck, i'm liking this Mugstar thang. It's a 2 trk lathe cut on Trensmat with a bonus CD featuring 2 extra tracks as well as the lathe tracks meaning you'll never have to play it & can keep the polycarbonate disc in an hermetically sealed box to prevent it degrading too much or on the other hand you can just smash the CD up and play the...view item »

Our Love Will Destroy The World
Even My Angels Thought Darkly

We got a couple more beauts in this week on the Trensmat label. They've been quiet of late so it's good to hear they're still going! Here I got a 7" by Our Love will Destroy The World to mention which is Campbell Kneale of Birchville Cat Motel (who are now no more... ie they be well dead and buried...). So for your money you get a 2 track lathe c...view item »

My Trensmat 7" thing features Acid Mothers Temple and White Hills shaking that Hawkwind thang. I'd put a preorder in for this one because I love AMT but on hearing their version of the amazing 'Brainstorm' I've got to say I'm pretty disappointed with the sound quality.. I assume most of their stuff is recorded live but this doesn't seem to hav...view item »

Area C
Trick With A Knife

Here's a fantastic 7" from the Trensmat label. Is it me or is this just about the best new label to come out of nowhere in ages? Every single release has been great.... It reminds me of the golden olden days when labels were taking chances and releasing interesting things instead of the commercial bland tat which I'm perpetually surrounded by....view item »

Astral Social Club: Skelp (Trensmat) 7" w/ CD Is a collaboration by Neil Campbell and Stewart Walden that reveals Neil's fascination with the German minimal techno imprint Kompakt.
