Formed in 2010, Gamecock are a two piece comprised of Stuart Arnot (Smear Campaign/Total Vermin Tapes) and Nick Mitchell (Chalaque/Golden Lab Records). ‘All Right, Hen?’ is a reissue put out by Golden Lab because neither of them had a copy of either the original cassette release on Gary War’s Fixed Identity or the subsequent Be...view item »

Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura
The Grand Celestial Purge

In an attempt to ward off more deaths of really good people in 2016 strung out psychedelicists Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura have concocted a three hour 4LP extravaganza of psych musings on who we have lost in this bad year. The whole shebang was recorded in a church in Leeds and recorded by ace producer Richard Form...view item »

The Doozer
Flying Bird

The Doozer’s songcraft is very direct, clearly not mediated by any concerns other than clear self-expression. Flying Bird is quietly special: not much stands out from these pretty tunes on first listen, but you’ll soon fall into its great depth and string-draped b...view item »

Tom Settle & Friends
Old Wakes

Tom Settle (and indeed his Friends, comprising the likes of Jon Collin, Nick Mitchell and many more) lands a mighty double LP on the Golden Lab label. Old Wakes is a hell of a psych-folk trip, and if two LPs worth wasn’t enough for you, the first 100 copies come w...view item »

Burnt Hills
Live at The Low Beat

Ten-piece psych-punk weirdos Burnt Hills are well known for scarcely ever venturing out of their basement. It does happen though, and Live at The Low Beat captures just such an occasion.

Richard Youngs
Varispeed Etudes

Richard Youngs experimental take on music is exemplified on Varispeed Etudes - and album of two halves which is tied together by the varispeed pitch control used with reel-to-reel tapes.

Mad Nanna
In Glasgow

'In Glasgow' is a recording of sad rock duo Mad Nanna performing a show in Glasgow, which makes sense. More specifically, it captures their set for a Volcanic Tongue in-store, taking the drumming out of the equation for a purely acoustic set. Without the drums, Mad Nanna sound somewhat like a slowcore outfit who can't stop putting...view item »

Split

This split single by Matt ‘MV’ Valentine and Nick Mitchell allows each artist to explore one-chord jams. Valentine’s side is an improvised piece bathed in wah-wah lead guitar and analogue synths. Mitchell’s side is upbeat with electric guitar arpeggiating around the one chord. 7” si...view item »

Stolen Car

Exciting times for Golden Lab Records. 'Stolen Car' was recorded in January 2013 and performed by power trio Baczkowski, Corsano and Nace, featuring Flaherty napkin art on the front and back covers. The title track is a frenzied implosion of free jazz improvisation built upon layers of pensive, slightly unhinged sounds. Side B consists of three ...view item »

Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura
The Empire Never Ended

Manchester psychedelicists Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura return with their fourth album, the Philip K Dick-inspired (I presume) 'The Empire Never Ended', which features two lengthy tracks.

Jon Collin
Burnt Monday

From Manchester comes this experimental musician Jon Collin, an adept guitarist and an expert in oddness. With multiple string discordancy leading to strangulation of tones then space in his tracks, it’s a bit like Jim O’Rourke or Loren Connors if that's your buzz. Transcendent cacophonies of sound. On vinyl. ...view item »

Golden Lab Records have this week sent this sloppy mess of a 7” from Chalaque, a self-proclaimed “double B-side” single featuring the songs ‘Helderberg Howl’ and ‘FTW’. I’m starting with the B-side ‘FTW’, which is two minutes of harsh vaguely rhythmic po...view item »

Pink Reason
Manchester '11

Shoplifting maestro and once grower of highly potent weed Kevin Debroux's (AKA Pink Reason) new collection of strung out "vibes" and "songs" are scratchy, laid back affairs that have no discernible starting points and are the kind of tracks that you might listen to if you spent the night getting high on glue and other ace solvents.

You can pretty much count on MV & EE to make a sweet tune. So here are the duo accompanied by the Golden Road on 'Moment Spacing' an acoustic sing along folkie/ hippy type track which will make you go out and hug a tree and then go and eat some flowers and walk around your commune naked smelling of petulia oil.

Float Riverer

The man here has a nice yelp. He's yelping right out of his box, whereas the drumming lass Kate has a cool sassy wonky voice that matches this scratchy, stripped-back lo-fi garage beautifully.

More squalling free desert rock on the increasingly far out GPS.
