Nova Materia
It Comes

Nova Materia here show their debut album to the world, full of their idiosyncratic take on electronically-driven post-punk. It Comes could feasibly be at home both on the decks of an electro-focused club, or on the stage of any number of festivals. The band grew out of remnants of Chilean band Panico, s...view item »

Zazou / Bikaye / Cy 1
Noir et Blanc

Receiving an update from the original tapes, this benchmark album is renewed and refreshed for the contemporary ear. It represents a truly inspired collaboration involving French composition, experimental electronics, Congolese vocals and musicianship and a host of other elements. Essential Afro-electronic grooves....view item »


Aquaserge
Déjà-Vous?

Points for self-awareness that a live album with a jazz standard from a band with a decidedly retro sound is called Déjà-Vous? I'm not so sure but hey, you can't doubt that Aquaserge are very good at what they do. Déjà-Vous? combines recordings from shows in 2016 and 20...view item »

Aksak Maboul
Onze Dances pour Combattre la Migraine

Aksak Maboul is keeping busy at the moment (with a great collaboration with Veronique Vincent), so what better time to be reminded of earlier work? Onze Dances pour Combattre la Migraine is a glorious thing from 1977, and even if it doesn’t cure your headache, you will almost certainly dance. Reis...view item »


Aksak Maboul
Un peu l'Ame des bandits

Listen back to the early roots of the Crammed Discs label, with this essential album by Aksak Maboul, the Belgian avant-rock group lead by label-runner Marc Hollander and also featuring such luminaries as Fred Frith and Chris Cutler of Henry Cow! Un peu &lsq...view item »


Yasuaki Shimizu
Music For Commercials

From 1987, Yasuaki Shimizu's Music For Commercials is still a very popular title in the 'Made to Measure' series. Composer-saxophonist Shimizu -- known for his soundtrack w...view item »

Juana Molina
Halo

Argentinian singer-songwriter Juana Molina gets easily lumped into a category far too broad for her impressively unique style. Her seventh full length, Halo touches all bases - from up close and playful tracks like Cosoco to the dark and claustrophobic Lentísimo Halo. Features a few guest appear...view item »


Kasai Allstars & Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste
Around Félicité

Around Felicite is a film by Alain Gomis, inspired by the heady sounds of Kinshasa’s finest, the Kasai Allstars. Of course, who could be better to soundtrack such a film than the Allstars themselves, working in this case with the Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste...view item »


Juana Molina
Un Dia

I have to say both Brian and myself liked the Juana Molina 'Un Dia' album that came out last week. So much so we decided to re evaluate it after Clint seemed reasonably non plussed by the whole affair. Though, like Clint I've never really been massively impressed by Juana before this album, but it is definitely more interesting than previous ones. ...view item »

Le Ton Mite
Passe Compose Futur Conditionnel

Le Ton Mité is a hard-to-pin-down collective with one McCloud Zicmuse sitting at the centre (other participants include members of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw). Passe Compose Futur Conditionnel packs an impressive 50 songs into 67 minutes, covering a wide s...view item »


Tuxedomoon
Half-Mute

At no less than 36 years of age, the warped synths and humming basslines of Half-Mute by Tuxedomoon return to the fore on vinyl with Crammed Discs. The experimental new-wavers from San Fran helped kick off the 1970s punk rock revolution, and this offering is largely respons...view item »


Minimal Compact
One (Statik Dancin')

Underground 80’s club favourites Minimal Contact play relentlessly compulsive, bass driven tracks with an economical, stripped back funk/disco sound, recorded with a raw, punk rock production aesthetic that earned them a large, cult following across Europe and the US. This remastered reissue of their 1981 mini album includes the classic tr...view item »


Veronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul
16 Visions Of Ex-Futur

Ex-Futur was released in 2014, and so many artist from across the musical plains loved it that much that they have come together with covers in their owns styles. Including Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague), London’s Bullion, delicate electro-pop fr...view item »


Tuxedomoon & Various Artists
Half-Mute / Give Me New Noise: Half-Mute Reflected

Tuxedomoon’s 1980 debut Half-Mute is rightly well-regarded as a weird-pop masterpiece: now the band are touring it again! To accompany the shows, they’ve handed out the material to artists like Simon Fisher Turner, Cult With No Name and Aksak Maboul, to cove...view item »


Konono No. 1
Konono No 1 Meets Batida

The mighty Congolese collective Konono No.1 haven’t released a record in ages, so this new collaborative effort with the Angolan / Portuguese producer Batida is very welcome. He mostly underpins the tracks with beats, managing to add to but not distract from the inimitable buzzing momentum that Kon...view item »


The Honeymoon Killers
Les Tueurs de la Lune de Miel

The Honeymoon Killers were a Belgian band fronted by Yvon Vromman. They formed in 1974 but it wasn’t until the early ‘80s and the release of Les Tueurs de la Lune de Meil in 1982 that they started to tour the rest of Europe. The British music press and French TV loved ‘em and Les T...view item »


Tuxedomoon & Cult With No Name
Blue Velvet Revisited

Blue Velvet Revisited is a recent making-of documentary for David Lynch’s classic movie, and we all know what David Lynch films sound like don’t we? What a tantalising soundtrack commission for Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name to try and capture that atmosph...view item »

Veronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul
Burnt Friedman / Marc Collin Re-works

Veronique Vincent and Akasak Maboul did great work with their recent Ex-Futur collaboration album, and that work is now being augmented by the masterful touch of Burnt Friedman and Marc Collin. Both maintain the fresh, left-field groove almost inherent in this music, wh...view item »

Berangere Maximin
Dangerous Orbits

Available on CD or double vinyl LP on Crammed Discs. Jeeez! Name dropping alone should grab you if you like any kind of drone or sound art. Berangere Maximin studied under Denis Dufour (GRM, and himself a pupil of Pierre Schaeffer), first album released on John Zorn...view item »

Skip&Die
Cosmic Serpents

Don’t be fooled by the garish, cringingly teenage art & design project style cover for Cosmic Serpents by Skip&Die because behind the cover, in those dusty grooves, are some rhythmical, tropical and dance-inducing tunes, inspired by the countries in which the album was written and recorded, includi...view item »


Kasai Allstars
Beware the Fetish

Some nutritious green bean burgers from Kasai Allstars. Beware the Fetish is the second record out from the Congolese super group. It's loaded with poly-rhythmic syncopated goodness, luscious vocal harmonies, archetypal West African interweaving guitar lines with funky modernish production. The diversity of thi...view item »

Jozef Van Wissem
It's Time for You to Return

The dark, lute-driven folk of Josef Van Wissem found its place on the soundtrack for Jim Jarmusch's most recent evil vampire movie, but now it steps out on its own on this record where he seemingly thinks it's a good idea to rebrand himself as a vicar. These nine works see him working at a lethargic and mesmerising pace that entrances the listen...view item »

Shackleton vs. Kasai Allstars / Burnt Friedman vs. Konono No. 1
Mukuba Special / Rubaczech

This is almost certainly gonna be good. Shackleton and Burnt Friedman have a crack at remixing music by Kasai Allstars and Konono No. 1, artists that have produced recordings as part of Belgian producer Vincent Kenis's ongoing Congotronics project. Both Konono No. 1 and Kasai Allstars are blessed with fascinating musical backgrounds that are war...view item »

Tradi Mods Vs Rockers

It's really hotting up is interest in the Congotronics stuff. I wasn't quite prepared for a wild & lush double set containing a madly eclectic carnival of remixers combining their talents to rework this rich seam of deeply rhythmical & often euphoric Congolese music. Mainly reworkings of Konono No. 1 & Kasai Allstars material, you ge...view item »

Konono No. 1
Assume Crash Position

Oh happy day...Mingiedi Mawangu's awesome Konono No. 1 return with yet another fantastic selection of likembe jams that further expand on the Konono principle of creating vast hypnotic percussive grooves using thumb pianos (likembe, kalimba...they go by many names) hooked up to primitive, junkyard pick-ups and amplification. Universally liked by...view item »

Cibelle
The Shine Of Dried Electric Leaves

Most of Cibelle's material is, in whole or in part, way out there. A veteran of the superb Suba sessions, she has continued to develop in original and startling ways. Her music is not always easy to listen to, but it is always worth the effort. The Shine Of Dried Electric Leaves is not a perfect album - she does the "sex kitten" vocal thing a ta...view item »
