Conner Youngblood

After turning some heads with 2016 EP The Generation of Lift, Texan singer-songwriter Conner Youngblood comes through with his debut LP on Counter Records. Cheyenne shares a few tracks with TGoL, and the Bon Iver-meets-Sufjan Stevens vibe of that relea...view item »

Maribou State feat. Khruangbin
Feel Good

Khruangbin and Maribou State makes sense. It’s a sort of Lovebox Festival rendering of the King Krule/Mount Kimbie paradigm. ‘Feel Good’, which features a choppy vocal sample bobbing along in a river of playlistable psych-pop, is very much par for the course. T...view item »


Up ‘n’ coming Londoner Laurel introduces her debut Dogviolet. Named after everyone’s favourite purple, scentless flower, it broods on the complex old chestnut of love. Focused around yearning, expressive guitar riffs and Laurel’s soulful vocals, it’s a strong new entry in this sort of confe...view item »

Maribou State
Kingdoms In Colour

Maribou State return with their sophomore LP. The follow-up to 2015’s Portrait is another collection of breezy, emotive electronica that takes in plunderphonics, festival house, post-dubstep and more. Hopping on a trend in this sort of thing at the moment, there seems to be a Bollywood flavour to some of the sampl...view item »

Maribou State

The return of Maribou State - ‘Turnmills’ is their first new material in three years - sees the duo paying tribute to the London rave venue of the same name. Turnmills shut down in 2008, and in light of the spate of nightclub closures in the subsequent decade the pair’s decision to bring the issue back into con...view item »

Chrome Sparks
Chrome Sparks

Chrome Sparks is the recording moniker of Jeremy Malvin. He liked the name so much that he decided to name his debut album that too. There’s a buzz about this guy following a couple of well received EPs on Future Classic, the label that has been home to Chet Faker and Flume. He recorded it...view item »

Places We Don’t Know

Keane once talked about 'Places Only We Know' but Gothenburg based producer Carl Gasbo is more concerned with the places we don't know on this debut. The album is full of his pleasantly chilled uplifting R & B with guests galore including London electronic duo TENDER. Will sound good on the Chart Show or whatever.&...view item »

What So Not
Not All The Beautiful Things

After Flume split away from the collaboration, Emoh Instead has kept growing What So Not, with collaborations with the likes of R.L. Grime and Ganz. Now dropping his debut full length through Counter. Features collabs with Skrillex, Toto...view item »

Jono McCleery
Seeds Of A Dandelion

We've heard this one in the office quite a bit, and it has become a personal favourite of mine. Jono McCleery's voice is truly brilliant. He sings with so much soul and genuine passion. It's raw and it's beautiful. Available on vinyl LP and CD and both have been released on Counter Records. Trust me. It's a good 'un....view item »

Too Real

West coast producer Giraffage brings his debut full length album after a handful of releases on Fool’s Gold and Dim Mak. Glistening synth pop with the slick production of Flume. Featuring guest col...view item »

A Moment Apart

ODESZA's 'A Moment Apart' represents their progress as a duo. The combination of synth lines, weighted atmospheres and a more mature sound create familiar feelings of nostaalgia, optimism and hope for any listening to this standout album. 'A Moment Apart' features many guests, such as Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor, and RY X, showcasing ODESZA's e...view item »


RAC (Remix Artist Collective), setup and lead by André Allen Anjos drops his new full length album on Counter Records. Refined electro pop-come-disco with a grand 80s glamour.  With all but the outro bringing a different collaborating artists. Featuring Rivers Cuomo, Chaos Ch...view item »


London based artist Laurel has released her first EP entitled Park. The entire record has been written, recorded and produced in her bedroom studio that has given the record a raw and rather mature sound compared to the unseasoned youth and menace that you’d expect from a 22 year old. Available on 12”...view item »

David August
The Spell / A Golden Rush

New sounds from David August. The Spell jumps off from his previous work into a delicate blend of breakbeats and abstract sound-spaces: a curious mixture for all you ambient dancers out there. The second track, A Golden Rush, includes the vocals and writing skills of Nelia Kit....view item »

When Love Hurts

When Love Hurts audibly revs up at the start of its first tracks, with the sound of police sirens fading away into sleek and gorgeous house flows. Let the troubles of the real world slip away and come play… Spanish producer Pional has a wonderful poppy touch, as well as a delicate voice that he uses, Cari...view item »

Conner Youngblood
The Generation of Lift

Singer-songwriter Conner Youngblood takes a lot of inspiration from Sufjan Stevens, having apparently nailed the crucial Sufjan trick of surrounding simple, beautiful melodic songcraft with ornate and intriguing instrumentation. He pulls it off pretty well on The Generation Of Lift, his...view item »


Taken from Tiga’s No Fantasy Required LP and working with Paranoid London, this club stomper is an old heart with a new head, harking from the golden age. Thick grooved-out acid bassline and shuffled drum machine will get you moving without realising. For Fans of Erol Alkan, ...view item »

David August
J.B.Y / Ouvert

The first solo record in 2 years from David August arrives on Counter, the Ninja Tune-affiliated label. He’s been busy playing with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin you see… But he hasn’t forgotten his house music routes, as J.B.Y / Ouvert capably proves with its shimmer and b...view item »

Submotion Orchestra
Colour Theory

Submotion Orchestra’s new record is another strong suite of jazz-electronica, with soulful guest vocals from Andrew Ashong and Ruby Wood. Fittingly for the album’s name, Colour Theory is available in a beautiful white-vinyl-with-rainbow-splatter edition, exclusively for inde...view item »

Maribou State
Portraits Remixed

Portraits, the recent debut album from Maribou State, has gone down rather well with the leftfield-leaning electronic heads, and now a few of them have stepped up to remix tracks from it. We’ve got reworks from FYI Chris, ...view item »

Light EP

ODESZA follow up their hugely popular album In Return with this new single, featuring the very welcome vocals of Little Dragon. Lush electronic sonics, swelling to big crescendoes. Also included on the Light EP are live recordings of three of the group’s singles, making this a hit-packed ...view item »

Tiny Pause

A mostly electronic record here from Yppah. Something of a kaleidoscope this one, with the producer sending a swirl of sample fragments, guitars and synth ambiences over driving, martial beats. Tiny Pause is his fourth full-length record, and is pressed to clear-with-green-splatter vinyl. Out from Counter....view item »

Maribou State

Maribou State (whose name I cannot help but read as some crossover of Dan Snaith’s two monikers, Caribou and Manitoba) make music of a dance-pop persuasion, echoing elements rushing together into tightly emotive vocal house formations. Portraits includes vocals from Holly ...view item »

Andreya Triana

Joining the competitive musical scene of jazzy, soulful, power singer along with artists such as Paloma Faith, Adele and Laura Mvula, Andreya Triana is the latest name to create joyous, fun soul/jazz, all punctuated by her vocals. The songs on Giants are produce...view item »

Maribou State

Rituals is quite a tight track. Reminiscent of the Burial/Four Tet collaborations with a twinge of Gold Panda, this 12” will probably lift itself right off our shelves. Maribou State are rising to fame, and with a track like this it only seems fair. This is the first single of Portraits, their upcoming al...view item »

The Heavy
The Glorious Dead

The Heavy blends retro-soul, R&B, funk and garage rock to produce an awesome musical stew. Honestly, I was a little worried that the success of The House that Dirt Built would make the band a little complacent, and churn out something ultimately forgettable. They've done exactly the opposite and put out what is probably a better album musica...view item »

The Heavy
The House That Dirt Built

Points for this one, the album is outstanding. It's fresh in some ways and yet still feels familiar to some of the old school funk/rock bands. Don't let anything fool you about the appearance of this album....this is James Brown and George Clinton inspired funk. It isn't the same as either of those guys but keeps the same hard driving beat and m...view item »

Pop Levi
Police $ign/Ferrifying (for Kenneth Anger)

Okay so I'm gonna brave the Pop Levi 'Police $ign' 7" as I think I've forgotton what he sounds like... Oh yeah it's good times rock n roll. Brian pipes up something about Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I think we all concur that this is probably the best thing he's done. It's kinda raw garagey rawk that although aint my cup of tea I dare say I'd be bobbing ...view item »

People Like People Like You

This is little album is amazing! lent it from a mate at Uni and just cant stop listening to it....its one of those that grows and grows...some bits make you want to explode.............if you dont buy it then get a copy somehow......everyone needs to have this.......but dont tell them I said for music lovers............ ...view item »

The Death Set
Negative Thinking

The latest 7" electro punk rockpop riot comes from The Death Set with 'Negative Thinking. A repetitive linear drum machine beat forms the foundation of the track but not in a good Big Black kind of way. There are some melodic guitars over the top, a female vocal and the odd sample. Its pretty weak sounding but I'm sure someone will find it fun...view item »

The Heavy
Great Vengeance & Furious Fire

I checked this out after listening to The Glorious Dead and The House That Dirt Built, so I was kind of working backwards chronologically. GV&FF doesn't quite have the same spark that the subsequent albums possess, but it's still a really solid album; there isn't a lemon in the batch, and if you enjoyed their other work then this is a must-h...view item »

The Heavy
In The Morning

The Heavy have a 7" on Counter Records called In The Morning. This is some big brashy funk with some big guitars and big drums. Am thinking some of the latter David Holmes/ Free Association gear and maybe Big Chief if anyone remembers them?...view item »

The Heavy

A 7" by The Heavy called Coleen on Counter records (which I am informed is a subsidiary of Ninja Tines). It's a strange sound to come out of Bath, England. It's got a retro party soul vibe with trumpets and delicate Princeseque vocals. It's even got the standard female gospel backing band to big up the chorus for good order. It all played in f...view item »

Pop Levi
The Return To Form Black Magick Party

First up  POP LEVI  Sings The Return To Form Black Magick Party. Its a swash buckling amalgamation of all things  pouting retro. Its got the strut of Marc Bolan the vocal intonation of Robert plant with the vibe of the Rolling Stones. Not a bad list of artists but is it any good? Well its certainly holds its space in time wi...view item »

Super Numeri, Various
The Enochian Way

I'd never have expected one of the most fabulous mix CDs I've ever laid ears on to contain, amongst others, Yoko Ono, The Beach Boys & Fairport Convention. Am I turning into a twat? No. I'm just tuning in & dropping out to 'The Enochian Way', a lovingly compiled collection of lost 60's gems & complimentary flashes of contempo...view item »
