Schengen
The Beijing Of Our Career

Not heard owt by the venerable Schengen for a fair while. 'The Beijing of our Career' is a new CD by the duo and begins with a brilliant electronica/techno hybrid that recalls early Ai records, all emotive Carl Craig synths and dubbed out Berlin techno shards over a rhythmic, pulsing wall of playful rolling beats. A delightful intro! 'Baked' remind...view item »

Planivaar
The Green Boat

Planivaar: 'The Green Boat' (Make Mine) Five track CD of soothing, ethereal, driftwise electronica that will appeal to fans of Colleen's chiming, tinkling, charms.The most appealling aspect of this collection is the understated simplicity and economy of means used to develop enveloping, warm and glistening loops that fold in on each other. In the s...view item »

Avrocar
Against The Dying of The Light

You know when you hear one of those records that sounds incredibly familiar although you know you've never actually heard it before. Not in a way that it sounds derivative or uninventive but you could have heard it in a previous life or in a dream? Well Avrocar's latest album on Make Mine Music has had precisely that effect on me. I find the electr...view item »

Portal
Options

O.K., Im to be a big fan of Portal. I've got a few of his early lo-fo home recording efforts that I've really enjoyed but I wasn't aware of how prolific his output has been until I began reviewing this e.p. It would appear that Portal have now returned from a brief hiatus to present us with 'Options'. This seems to be a concerted effort to evolve b...view item »

Portal
Gone But Not Forgiven

Some goodness in this week on Make Mine Music. This time it's by Portal and it's their final album as Portal (the title Gone But Not Forgotten may give that away....).  This is a collection of singles, live tunes and mixes (done by nice folks like Schengen, Epic 45 etc) and it's limited to 525 copies. A nice rou...view item »

Still Crescent
Along The Fringe Of Starlit Frost

Still Crescent: Along The Fringe Of Starlit Frost (MakeMineMusic)When I first heard this yesterday it was like a half remembered dream, you know the like: a few minutes (or hours) upon awaking, you realised you've just experienced something but can't quite pinpoint it. Yes, it's one of those wierd reveries where one can't quite fathom the...view item »

May Your Heart Be The Map

Epic 45: 'May Your Heart Be The Map' (Make Mine Music) Is an endearing collection of songs that are composed to evoke memories of a long lost childhood. This they do by combining an array of acoustic and electric guitars, samplers, drums, bass, field recordings and a collection of assorted tools. At turns pastoral, reflective and nostalgic it remin...view item »

July Skies
The English Cold

When The Leaves Fall Like Snow

Yellow 6 releases a new album this week on the ever excellent Make Mine Music label. 'When The Leaves Fall Like Snow' is a 2 disc set so you get a lot of Yellow 6 for your buck on this releases. When I first listened to this I thought there was a bit of change of direction for the ole Yellow man. There's some undeniably Yellow 6 esque tracks on the...view item »

Piano Magic
Ovations

Well that incredibly busy chap Glen Johnson returns with a new full length CD under his much beloved Piano Magic guise and surprise, it's an absolute gem from start to finish! I can definitely hear influences from Coil to prime dark wave Depeche Mode in these haunting gothic tinged songs but the sheer depth & richness of the music on 'Ovations'...view item »

I am delighted to report that its absolutely lovel...view item »

Melt Inside

New CD from Yellow 6 on Make Mine Music. This is really nice. There's much more going on than on previous releases. The first track has dreamy guitars, echo-laden piano and spoken word female vocals. And there's the major change with what has come before for Yellow 6 - the addition of vocals by Ally Todd which a appe...view item »

Weathering

I was going to try and write this review without shoe-horning the word pastoral in, just as a bit of a challenge. I've given up pretty quickly as you can see. It's like talking about the Second World War and not mentioning Hitler. You can't do it. Oh and I'm reasonably sure Epic 45 and Hitler have no connections before you try and detect one...view item »

July Skies
Where the Days Go

JULY SKIES have a new album out on Make Mine Music. I stuck this on yesterday and the boys groaned and moaned like I'd undressed them and given them sandpaper outfits to wear again. I think it was too relaxing and nice for 'em.... They are a pair of angry young tykes though.  'Where The Days Go' is a very quiet and calming a...view item »

All Sides
Dedalus

All Sides:'Dedalus' (Make Mine Music) Eleven tracks housed in a card sleeve with its very own felt blanket. And you'll need a blanket to wrap yourself in when you've copped your ears around this kind of doomy, drifting, droning guitars and electronics hybrid. The lads in the office are reminded of Philistine in places, Muslimguaze or a kind of outf...view item »

Piano Magic
Dark Horses

Piano Magic have an EP out on Make Mine Music. 'Dark Horses' has a vocal somewhere between Jim Morrison and Ian Curtis. In fact when I heard this yesterday I was reminded of Joy Division at several points throughout the album but not in a cheap rip off way but in that you can hear the inspiration but they still have their sound unlike many bands th...view item »

Daylight Ghosts/ Any Second Now

Well I wasn't expecting a 7" from these guys - thought they were confined mainly to the digital realm these days. This A-side track appears to be a cool remix of one of the last mini-album highlights and is a sublime journey consisting of wistful vocals, a skittering drum machine, spangled guitars & this euphoric shimmering cosmic synth that...view item »

James Brewster
As A Hovering Insect Mass Breaks Your Fall

Here we have the latest release on Make Mine Music from an ex-Bristolian now living in Malmo, Sweden. Its probably also the only release on that label that features contributions from an Iranian puppet artist. I may be wrong. The album is a grab bag of ideas and styles from the red herring of opener 'Vel Kvonen' where Men Daimlers vocals alarm o...view item »

Glen Johnson
Details Not Recorded

Glen Johnson of Piano magic fame is pictured on the insert of his debut solo outing with his face wrapped in bandages in a room that looks very much like my own with a lovely selection of animal toys and masks. The playful looking room Mr. Johnson is pictured in suggests an upbeat, outgoing kind of guy, which is in relative contrast to the eerie, a...view item »

In All The Empty Houses

Trying to review 'In All The Empty Houses' by Epic 45 is a rather difficult exercise, a band it's awfully hard to categorise. They straddle the divide between tender melancholy pop & chiming, atmospheric post rock, definitely within the realms of the sound universe created by bands such as Disco Inferno, Bark Psychosis & Hood but mo...view item »

Millimetrik is some chap from Below the Sea & Glider, two post rock acts who have graced my earlobes on occasion, BTS stunning me stupid with one particular CD years ago. His latest release under this alias comes at me with warm tidings. It's one of those albums that just melts your spine. graceful & melodic, dripping with atmosph...view item »

Millimetrik
Mystique Drums

When I started working here all those years ago the kind of electronic music we flogged fell largely into two camps - A/ Awkward bastard minimal glitch/broken (nee smashed) beat fannies with no discernible rhythm or melodic appeal or B/ Hyper tuneful, smiley bunnies with tons of warm enveloping synth lines, cute melodies & catchy drum breaks...view item »

Lovely re-issue of classic English pastoralism. Here's Mingus's review from back in the days we sold CDs.   Twelve tracks of melancholic English pastoralism in the vein of Vini Reilly's Durutti Column. Long drawn out guitar passages, sometimes drenched in reverb. Introduced with the pips (UK Radi...view item »

ALL SIDES is a German lady who makes electronic music. She has a limited CD out on Make Mine Music which I believe is one of their limited to 100 jobs.

The Doldrums
Mirth & Songs EP

This week we have 2 releases on the Make Mine Music label. The 1st one is by a chap called The Doldrums. Well actually he's called Dylan. The Doldrums would be a pretty silly first name for someone right (apologies to anyone who may actually be called that). The Mirth And Songs EP is quite a diversion from previous Make Mine Music releases. It ha...view item »

Scott Sinfield is a man who has been around the block a bit. And I don't mean in a sexual way. Although he may be a bit of a gigolo on the sly for all I know.

After folding his Portal project he's got down to business with this new outlet for his musical experiments &a...view item »

Drowned In Light

Old Morr Music mucker Manual appears to have a new home, the communal DIY behemoth that is MMM; the talented Danes' first outing for this label is an absolute beauty. He kind of blurs the edges between the tentative post-cocteaus sway of early Yellow 6, classic dreampop, the gentler edges of Krautrock & kosmische synth exploration and the ecsta...view item »

Plinth/Textile Ranch
The Rest, I Leave To The Poor

Got some nice stuff to review this week. The Textile Ranch/ Plinth CD on Make Mine Music is up next and I'm taken by the cover. Nice brown cardboard affair with some crazy whacked out picture of bird man on there smothered with embossed red text. Doesn't sound very interesting I'm sure but the words aren't flowing today.

Make Mine Music head into slightly darker territory with a limited CD (edition of 50) by Still Crescent. 'The Railway Terminus, The October Twilight, The Circulatory System' is the chilling sound of icy winter weather and isolationist dark ambient. This is the work of Sébastien Wright (August Stars). I get a very slight hint of dub at times ...view item »
