Doss EP

Here's a debut EP by Doss, who I've not heard before. They make a very '90s influenced type of trancey house-pop with a drifty modern sheen to it, all silky melodies and breathy vocals, cut up and pitched up and echoed into a euphoric haze around the subtly phasing beats and uplifting soft synths. You get three songs and a remix on this 12", eno...view item »

Porcelain Raft
Gone Blind EP

This is the work of Mauro Remiddi, a native of Rome, Italy. The first track here 'Gone Blind' knocked my little socks off with its pastoral lo fidelity glow. It arrives almost at the exact midpoint between Real Estate's watery, reverbed guitar compositions...view item »

Genderless vocals and a watery guitar/keyboard motif but just when you are expecting a killer chorus, it goes into a wibbly music box ...view item »

Pure X
You're In It Now EP

The sleeve has pictures of babies on which, when you put it alongside the title, makes a kind of sense I suppose. So not only is the internet being weighed down with baby photos we get them on record sleeves too (and one of them is suckling a teat). The vinyl is madcap in colour - kind of black with a big squiggl...view item »
