Wume
Towards The Shadow

Northern Spy has spied out Wume (April Camlin drumming and singing, Albert Schatz keying and twiddling) and seen fit to bring us their new album Towards the Shadow. The pair are doing very engaging and enjoyable neo-prog pop jams, polyrhythms aflutter and synth harmonies gurgling away. Sounds a ...view item »

Shilpa Ray
Door Girl

Shilpa Ray’s album cover to Door Girl may make it look like a soundtrack album to a John Hughes film in the vein of Pretty in Pink or Ferris Buller’s Day Off, but I wouldn’t say that to her face. It’s a bile ridden album of bucolic punk rock, with Ray spitting and gurgling over you until ...view item »


Larkin Grimm
Chasing An Illusion

With a decade-long history releasing meandering tapestry records, Larkin Grimm has long since laid the ground for Chasing An Illusion. Her ominous songs bridge corners of genre including hints of neofolk, jazz and a backwards pastoral Americana, while her lyrics here stand as her most direct and confrontational, star...view item »


On Fillmore
Happiness Of Living

On Fillmore is the duo of Glenn Kotche and Darin Gray, who between them have played with amazing artists from Chris Corsano and Jim O’Rourke to Wilco. Happiness Of Living includes yet more musical collaborators, all adding up to a...view item »


PC Worship
Buried Wish

Here they are, the guitar band I always think make electronic music. It's in the name -- you expect retro synths and what you get is in fact weirdass indie rock, a little deviating from the proper stuff and a little fried for punk music. PC Worship continue to break the time continuum just a little bit by improvising s...view item »


Cuddle Magic
Ashes/Axis

Cuddle Magic is a big six-piece group with experience across the musical spectrum (reaching Amanda Palmer on the one side and Fred Frith on the other). Ashes / Axis has the gang playing around with pop flavours, in which bright and lovely melodies are delivered on a bed of weirdo textur...view item »


Horse Lords
Interventions

Horse Lords are a bold Baltimore band who do that thing of pulling a whole sackful of genres and styles together and somehow making the results sound great! Third album Interventions has sharp saxophone blasts and La Monte Young-inspired just intonation guitars laid down over hot, groovy West African rh...view item »

Oneida and Rhys Chatham
What's Your Sign?

Some years in the making, here is the collaboration between one of New York’s finest guitar-centric experimental composers Rhys Chatham and the glorious Oneida. With What’s Your Sign?, both parties mesh beautifully together into a swirl of repetitive super-sound: a joy for Oneida...view item »


Padang Food Tigers & Sigbjorn Apeland
Bumblin' Creed

Padang Food Tigers come from the UK, and Sigbjørn Apeland comes from Norway. Collaborative record Bumblin’ Creed is a subtle thing, with pieces slowly growing themselves into tender webs of spiritual folk-drift. Organ, g...view item »


Okkyung Lee & Christian Marclay
Amalgam

One-woman improvisational cello-storm Okkyung Lee played live with turntablist and artist Christian Marclay during a Cafe Oto residency a few years ago: the performance is now being released by Northern Spy. Amalgam is a jumpy, flickery set of sound-shards bounced back and forth between the two musician...view item »


Zs
Xe

New and unexplored territory from Zs. Xe is the new set of noises from the group in it's current 3 person format. Taking ideas of minimalism, the avant-garde, jazz fusion and an assortment of rhythmic concepts - they have woven a tapestry of sorts based around drums, percussion, the guitar and the saxopho...view item »

Cloud Becomes Your Hand
Rest In Fleas

Cloud Becomes Your Hand are a New York band so adept at playing their instruments that they can afford to have fun with it. Tightly interlocking rhythmic-melodic patterns power forwards with plenty of colourful touches thrown in: cartoonish vocal interjections, surprising samples, MIDI percussion. But ...view item »


White Out with Nels Cline
Accidental Sky

Long-running experimental ensemble White Out never quite fully embrace the total ‘white out’ of full noise, but they enjoy skirting close to it. And improvising guitarist Nels Cline makes for a perfect partner in their electro-acoustic travels. They’ve played together plenty, but Accidental...view item »

Shilpa Ray
Last Year's Savage

On CD or vinyl LP on Northern Spy. Since releasing an EP on Nick Cave’s imprint, Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Shilpa Ray has signed a two record deal with Northern Spy, the first of which is Last Year’s Savage. You can see why Nick Cave likes her so much, the harmonium s...view item »

Thurston Moore & John Moloney
Caught On Tape Full Bleed

A right old racket from Thurston Moore and John Maloney. Presumably improvised, this set of nine songs sounds like one long crescendo. At times visceral and never wholly predictable it’s worth a spin for fans of Sonic Youth at their gnarliest and Sunburned Hand Of The Man. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Northern Spy....view item »

Fred Frith & John Butcher
The Natural Order

So if you recognise the two names up above already, then you probably don’t need me to tell you whether this will be worth your time or not. Frith and Butcher have been intensely exploring the outer limits of improvised sound for decades: Butcher in particular is renowned for doing things that most saxopho...view item »

PC Worship
Social Rust

Hot on the heels of a very cool 7" on Sophomore Lounge, PC Worship now drop LP number four on Northern Spy. Apparently this is the closest they've come to the "conventional rock formula" but knowing this lot I think that just means that there's some pop songs subtly hidden in their scratchy experimental avant garde/no-wave/lo-fi influenced ...view item »

O'Death
Out Of Hands We Go

O'Death return with a fourth long-player of their heady bluegrass/folk/punk concoction, returning to a rawer sound rooted in live performance after the more meticulous 2010 studio effort 'Outside', perhaps in no small part because bandleader Greg Jamie took over a venue and arts space which the band have adopted as a second home and wh...view item »

Chicago Underground Duo
Locus

Here’s a curious album of exploratory experimental jazziness from Chicago’s Chicago Underground Duo. It’s a mysterious concoction of live drums and brass and alien synth experiments which range from subtle polyrhythms interwoven into the simple yet intricate drum grooves through to spaced out cosmic drones and paranoid flutteri...view item »

Aa
VoyAager

Bombastic polyglot noises from Brooklyn’s Ae. Highly rhythmic and fusing live and digital drums, VoyAger offers up a thunderous cacophony that leans on elements of chanting, pop melodies and industrial soundscapes. Contains touches of the metallic noises of HEALTH and the world embracing philosophy of Gang Gang Da...view item »

The USA Is A Monster
R.I.P.

USA Is A Monster have always being a curious and enjoyable entity so I'm sad to hear that 'R.I.P' will be their final outing. Thankfully it's a triumphant winner of an LP that both justifies and celebrates and the journey USAIAM have taken through the dirges of the universal punk rock underground. Now, I wasn't aware that USAIAM are/were now a f...view item »

Neptune

Sitting somewhere between Punk Rock and Avant-Garde noise the group have always impressed with the their knack for fucking with the status quo. The key element that sets the group apart from others is their use of home made ...view item »

The Spanish Donkey
XYX

Grunge jazz: Probably not a very big sub-genre, although the Nels Cline Singers and various Zorn projects occasionally take a stab at it. What we've got here is entirely improvised music purveyed by the iconoclastic trio of Jamie Saft on keys and bass, Mike Pride on drums, and Joe Morris on guitar. Not your cup of tea? Fine. Then avoid it. But i...view item »

Old Time Relijun
Sabertooth Tyger

I like these cheeches. They make a kind of racket that makes intellecto-fucks from magazines and websites start crying and bleating their little white asses off... "These guys have no talent I find their particular brand of blues no-wave rock most unedifying..." Good for you, why don't you fuck off and write reviews for The Wire. They sound deme...view item »

Jooklo Duo
The Warrior

Skronk! I've heard bits of the Jooklo folks before and I've always found 'em reasonably entertaining. This is their first ever 7" so if you fancy a bite size chunk of 'em now's your chance. Here they skronk their way through two whole sides of 7" vinyl with the most screechy sax I've heard in ages. It's completely insane this one... A massive sk...view item »
