The Slowest Lift
The Slowest Lift

The Slowest Lift is, I am pleased to announce, the sweet team-up of Todmorden’s finest Sophie Cooper and Vibracathedral Orchestra / Piss Superstition man Julian Bradley. Both are excellent at handling linear, semi-abstract and fully messed-up sounds, and t...view item »

Wingtip Sloat
Purge & Swell / The Lost Decade

Who remembers Wingtip Sloat from the 90s? Well I certainly do. Their slash and burn, lop sided lo-fi sat somewhere in the minefield between Pavement and Truman's Water making them regulars on the John Peel show. Well, now they are back with not only a brand new album but a 31 track bonus disc of...view item »

Flying Saucer Attack
In Search Of Spaces

Unlike their comparatively peaceful recordings, the live Flying Saucer Attack were a racket of trebly guitars and visceral improvised semi-compositions ensuring that live attempts were often a mess/inspired often at the same time. This live document is a rare chance to hear the beast in action and for this special 2LP vinyl edit...view item »

Jack Rose
Raag Manifestos

VHF have just launched a crucial series of reissues of the music of Jack Rose, a major voice in experimental acoustic guitar music, both on his own and as a member of Pelt. Raag Manifestos was a 2004 limited edition tour release containing some of his fiercest explorations of the 12-string. What a delig...view item »

Jack Rose
Opium Musick

VHF have just launched a crucial series of reissues of the music of Jack Rose, a major voice in experimental acoustic guitar music, both on his own and as a member of Pelt. 2003’s Opium Musick features Rose holding forth on 12-string and 6-string guitar, as well as a lap guitar. A...view item »

Jack Rose
Red Horse, White Mule

VHF have just launched a crucial series of reissues of the music of Jack Rose, a major voice in experimental acoustic guitar music, both on his own and as a member of Pelt. Red Horse, White Mule is his 2002 debut album as a solo artist. It pairs a series of shorter pieces with a colossally deep raga tha...view item »

Aethenor
Hazel

Aethenor is the ever-unusual combination of two members of Ulver, big Sunn O))) guitar-drone man Stephen O’Malley and London’s free-jazz drummer supreme Steve Noble. This album, sourced from 2010 live recordings, finds the players meeting each other ...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
A Shimmering Replica

Ash Nav’s psychoactive stream of cosmic consciousness flows unabated, hitting a sun-scorched plateau of ecstatic intensity that’s rare by even their standards for this latest LP on VHF. The record bristles into being with the phaser-fuzzed smears and ruminating electronic pulsations of ‘Cold Lemon Door & Side Table’ a...view item »

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Rec Blast Motorbike

Hurrah! This is, I believe, the first ‘proper label’ album from Vibracathedral Orchestra since they pulled back all the members of the ‘classic’ line-up: Michael Flower, Neil Campbell, Bridget Hayden, Adam Davenport and Julian Bradley. If you’ve see...view item »

Kawabata Makoto
Astro Love and Infinite Kisses

Psychedelic drone wonder from Kawabata Makoto on his latest release Astro Love & Infinite Kisses, his first following a period of quiet. A showcase of his work with Acid Mothers Temple, this record from VHF is available on double vinyl and features a fantastic 41 minute epic track Dos Nurages, with hallucinogenic guitar, fin...view item »

Flying Saucer Attack
Flying Saucer Attack

Flying Saucer Attack's debut was one of those records that pointed the way forward in terms of how albums could be comprised and sequence. Half blurry pop songs, half wandering instrumentals, it contains two tributes to the then totally obscure Popul Vuh and an unlikely cover of Suede's 'The Drowners'. It's notable how twee the pop songs are sou...view item »

Black Sun Roof
Feral

Here’s the long-awaited new album from Matt “Skullflower” Bower’s Sunroof!, or Black Sun Roof as they/he are/is calling them/himselves/self this time round, and it comes with a bonus 12-song CD from Bower (well it’s marked “MB&rdquo...view item »

Richard Youngs
No Fans Compendium

Who likes Richard Youngs? I'm told that it's Richard Youngs fans, who have dealt with a lot of sound experiments in their time: beyond the sometimes sprawling, sometimes internalised folk music, they've listened to D-beat and minimal, plus some tape stuff. All of it's good, in its way, and No Fans Compendium ...view item »

Astral Social Club
Fountain Transmitter Medications

Prolific sonic madcap Neil Campbell has his best shirt on and is having a great time in his garden. I'd say that you picked the worse side of your face, Neil. On his latest release on VHF records, he spits out more ecstatic electronic whirls, squeaks and bleeps which defy the suburban topiary vibe of the cover. Oh, and there'...view item »

H. Usui
Sings The Blues

Sitting along the shore of the grey lonesome North Sea, you can almost see H. Usui on a Persian carpet with all his instruments, slowly plucking at the banjo in a soulful manner. Why is this record called Sings the Blues? It is a sad, introverted album, without the familiar sounds of the blues. Yet nonetheless, it can p...view item »

Jesse Sparhawk / Eric Carbonara
Tributes & Diatribes

In hapless record store incident no 18534, Phil passes this to me saying it ‘probably’ something to do with Alan Sparhawk, its his wife or daughter or summat. Well Jesse Sparhawk is a man and has nothing to with Alan as far as I know. He plays a lever harp and pal Eric Carbonara plays an upright chaturangui amongst other things. Like...view item »

Alexander Turnquist
Like Sunburned Snowflakes

Woo. A new Turnquist! I loved this guy’s last album so much that I’d say it was my favourite album of last year. I’ve played it to death. I’ve practically destroyed my vinyl of it! I can’t recommend that album enough...view item »

Alexander Turnquist
Hallway Of Mirrors

VHF are releasing a bunch of solo guitar dudes over the next few weeks. Here's one of 'em! It's an album from New York's Alexander Turnquist called Hallway of Mirrors. It says that above so it's kinda pointless me saying that. Having said that the New York thing was a new bit of info so it's not all filler! I've not heard this chap before but I ...view item »

Jesse Sparhawk / Eric Carbonara
Sixty Strings

Here's another of those guitarry things on VHF I was on about. This 'un is by Jesse Sparhawk (Beverly Hills 90210) and Eric Carbonara (Charmed and season 2 of Supernatural).  Ho ho... I'm so fucking funny.  Straight to business... Eric plays an upright Chaturangui (twangy sounding Indian guitar thing to folks who've no idea what one is...view item »

Fern Knight
Castings

I totally got into Fern Knight a few years ago. 'Music For Witches & Alchemists' totally did it for me. I wanted to review the last album that came in and it was one of those that arrived late when we were busy and it got missed. So I grabbed the newie to check out hoping for great things. If you've not heard them before they're basically a ...view item »

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Wisdom Thunderbolt

Mid-period Vibracathedral Orchesta album on the trusty VHF Records. Featuring pieces culled, as usual, from the midst of lengthy jams, Wisdom Thunderbolt surfs some pretty tasty sound-waves. Chris Corsano and Skullflower’s Matthew Bower join the fray for a track e...view item »

Skullflower
This Is Skullflower

VHF have reissued this disc from Matt Bower's long running Skullflower project. This particular incarnation features Bower on guitar and piano (!), Stuart Dennison on drums and viola, Russell Smith plays guitar, John Godbert plays piano and hand drum, also Richard Youngs is on guitar. This is very far removed from the current black metal influ...view item »

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Joka Baya

Time for some treats from Leeds-based leg-ends Vibracathedral Orchestra, apparently hinging on the Mick Flower/Adam Davenport axis these days while John Godbert and John Maloney provide the doorknob and letterbox. Getting a quick grip on this trilogy of VHF LPs (in matching sleeves with divergent colour schemes) is gonna be tricky as there's a fair...view item »

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Smoke Song

Part of a trio of albums recorded by a slightly stripped down form of the Vibracathedral Orchestra, Smoke Song finds the group in rather a percussive mood. Two long tracks and one short one, moving from calmly tranced out to wildly tranced out. All good. Vinyl LP release, out courtesy of the wonderful VHF....view item »

Jack Rose
Kensington Blues

He's been called the natural heir of John Fahey and on his earlier releases managed to evoke the memory of Fahey, Basho and (Sandy) Bull, blending a Mississippi blues drawl, folky americana and eastern influences. I would suggest that this is a significant step forward from those earlier albums, which are excelle...view item »

Astral Social Club
Octuplex

A few months back Brian and I toodled out to see Astral Social Club on a bill with Acid Mothers Temple and I think it's fair to say that we loved both, but it was the former that really made my mind take off to another place with their epic, droning one track performance. That night was closer in spirit to the LP Brian's reviewing this week but...view item »
