Dub Spencer & Trance Hill
William S. Burroughs In Dub

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 24th April 2015

They’ve already dubbified Metallica and The Clash and as if to prove that everyone can be dubbed, Dub Spencer and Trance Hill have taken the words of Sir William Burroughs and placed them in a dub context. Imagine what you think this sounds like and you’ll be pretty clos…view full details.

Death And Vanilla
To Where the Wild Things Are

21 people love me. Be the 22nd...

9/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd April 2015

Death and Vanilla are pretty close to being the perfect band for those who worship the ‘60’s exotic electronica that so influenced the music of Broadcast. Opener ‘Necessary Distortion’ sets out it’s stall pretty clearly -a pulsating, kraut jam which sits perfectly in that sweet spot b…view full details.

Blur
The Magic Whip

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 24th April 2015

It’s not exactly the standard way of making a comeback album. Blur had a couple of cancellations on their recent world tour jaunt so decided rather than sit around in hotel rooms they’d go to the studio and record some tracks. Coxon got bored in January and finished it off then Albarn dusted down the cockney vowels and sang all over …view full details.

Old synth guys never die - they just escape from their big stadium bands for a while and make interesting electronica. Martin Gore is famous for two things: Firstly he is a dead ringer for York City’s hardworking-but-devoid-of-end-product winger …view full details.

Who’s up for some no hope psych rock? The latest entry into the New Testament of the Fuzz Club is Sonic Jesus, who recently inflicted some repetitive-strain kraut witchery on a split with the Black Angels. On ‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’, they get a chance to stretch their devastated so…view full details.

Day Number 243, and I’m still walking this dustbowl road of post-apocalyptic isolation, lamenting psych rock and its cockroach knack for survival. I’ll take anything but, please; send me the Oasis reunion with Whitehouse, send me the War on Dr…view full details.

Drew Lustman
The Crystal Cowboy

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 22nd April 2015

With a cover consisting of a dusty apartment block and presumably Mr. Lustman sitting nonchalantly on top of a horse, you could easily assume that this is the electronic version of Father John Misty. New kooky alter ego, new sound and even some ‘doo-doo-doo’s, all signed to the Bella Union of b…view full details.

Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld
Never Were The Way She Was

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

10/10 according to our Robin on 21st April 2015

“No overdubs” is the phrase to watch with Colin Stetson, an artist who intones on saxophone to create sounds vocal and percussive, melodic and destructive. The reason we claim to be so impressed with his tectonic shifts is because they’ve all been conjured in one take, the result something like a one-man apocalypse on ‘Ju…view full details.

Ooh a rare treat for me to review a new release this week being as the horror of RSD 2015 has finally subsided. So this is the newie newness from Canada’s Braids which got my juices flowing this morning and being as I reviewed their last record ‘Flourish/Perish’ it seemed fitting for me to spew forth a few words. ‘Deep In…view full details.

“They’re named after something I never want to happen to me” - Phil, forlorn.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 24th April 2015

This film was executive produced by Frodo Baggins, which frankly is the most amazing thing to happen in my lifetime; how did hobbit dude afford the expense that is funding a Western noir movie? I don’t know, but here’s the deal: ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’ is a creepy film with plenty of vampirism and an eclectic s…view full details.

Delia Gonzalez
In Remembrance

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 23rd April 2015

Delia Gonzalez’s raw piano compositions are a far cry from your average neo-classical space-gazing. Nils Frahm ruminates on his keys -- he spends more time trying to see into their souls than he does press against them -- and Dustin O’Hallaran makes declarative statements with his cho…view full details.

Mew

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 23rd April 2015

Only an ‘s’ sound separates Mew from Muse. There are other similarities too, both make stadium-ready histrionic rock, both don’t know the meaning of the word ‘understatement’ but whereas Muse sell out stadiums across the world, Mew are big-ish in their native Denmark with a cult following …view full details.

This is a duo of CDs featuring Stephen Hitchell reimagining Stephen Hitchell. Those that are familiar with Echospace know exactly what they’re getting themselves into and those that don’t need only to listen to the first minute of the first CD to get the gist, because there’s around 110 minutes of gist contained within. …view full details.

Here are some angry boys. What exactly they are angry about I’m unsure, but I know how they’re angry, so, swings and roundabouts? They are angry via loosely but tightly smashed drums, roaring guitar riffs that sound like they could eat you and then spew you up as feedback, and of course, skramz, which are snarled and spat ra…view full details.

Beatriz Ferreyra is another high-concept electronic manipulator responsible for destroying various comfortable musical features, apparently alongside the mighty Pierre Schaeffer in the '50s-'60s. She helped build a language for electroacoustic composition to enable lamps to talk to birds via tape and computer, revisiting these concepts post-mill…view full details.

Michel Redolfi
Pacific Tubular Waves / Immersion

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 23rd April 2015

Editions Mego are continuing to unearth forgotten synth explorers from the early days, traversing the old ways of the bleep and bloop. In a sense it’s the bleep & bloop encyclopedia, but one of those sets that you have to shell out 15 quid per volume or you’re left noncommittal. No one wants that, and everyone wants synth, so why…view full details.

If there’s such a thing as being post-Captured Tracks then Dignan Porch are it.

Pianos here, pianos there pianos everywhere. People love to tinkle on them and release records of the sound of them so much so that one of the chief protagonists Nils Frahm recently declared it international piano day. Hey Stetson  - you know what to do with "sax day" thing. So this album from former…view full details.

Ltd LP on Lex. Edition of 300 copies. Tara Busch tries to make an indie rock slasher flick with The Silence but just ends up with the soundtrack, a record of bloodthirsty synths that at times recall a pop star version of Pharmakon who relents from the layers of noise and instead offers hushed vocals and softened beats. Eerie and occasionally flashing white, this will go down well with fans of Death…view full details.

12" on OKNO. The first ever release on new label OKNO is courtesy of the catchily monikered NPLGNN, an up-and-coming Italian. He’s got plenty to bring to the table on 1925, a very rhythm-driven sound with a kick-drum turned up so loud that it almost distorts at points (a definite good thing). 3 track 12” EP.…view full details.

Here we have techno, but not as you know it… Chaperone uses the tools of DIY tape music and noise to make slow-paced, wonky-speed beat collages that have an amazing textural feel to them.

No one on Blackest Ever Black has ever asked the question “what’s the crack?”, so I assume this record isn’t about chilling, hanging or making plans for a nice evening. Shampoo Boy are more after the terrifying, electro-acoustic, dark ambient vibe, taking tissues of sound and connecting them to create long-form disasters.…view full details.

What would it be like to be Scottish? I’ve always wondered because I’ve definitely got the hair for it.

Beautiful Bill is back, and I’m utterly relieved. ‘Life Is People’ was a triumphant comeback record that made the many years without Fay’s music worth suffering through, and celebrated a songwriter who’d been subjected to the musician’s worst nightmare: not being listened to. ‘Life Is People’ may h…view full details.

It’s summer outside. The grass on the other side of the ring road has been beautifully shorn and the smell of fresh grass clippings is mingling beautifully with the exhausts.
