The Lucid Dream
Actualisation

The Lucid Dream put their bad luck (their gear was all stolen in Paris in 2017) firmly behind them with fourth album Actualisation, a record that could not have come to be without some great fan support. The album works some big acid house vibes into the group’s general big psychedelia, as well as some delightful ...view item »

Tangent
Approaching Complexity

The Netherlands duo of Ralph van Reijendam and Robbert Kok bring us their fourth album together as Tangent. Their sky-gazing ambience and gently unfurling beats have graced releases on Tympanik Audio and now n5MD (following 2016's "Collapsing Horizons" LP, a beautifully effective blend of dubby ambient and glitchy IDM styles) gi...view item »

MoE / Marhaug
Capsaicin

The MoE trio (Guro Skumsnes Moe, Håvard Skaset and Joakim Heibø Johansen) are here joined by fellow Norwegian sound murderer Lasse Marhaug for a scorching seventy-eight minutes of red-hot burning noise rock and molten electronics destruction. 'Capsaicin' builds from ominous bass and unfurls into a m...view item »

Still House Plants
Long Play

Long Play is the debut long player from extremely Cafe Oto/Wire Magazine band Still House Plants. The Glasgow trio's interest is in riding the line between art and music, leading to an incredibly liberated experimental approach to song writing. Expect wildly varying song lengths, rawness, violins and artful...view item »

Blancmange
Wanderlust

It's a new album from the always forward-looking synth-pop duo Blancmange -- Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe. Wanderlust follows last year's wistful opus 'Unfurnished Rooms' but with a new energy approaching something like anger, mixed with a sense of dislocation. The albums consists of ten songs written by Arthur whic...view item »

Blue Orchids
Righteous Harmony Fist

Martin Bramah was an early member of The Fall, but unlike so many of those Fallen soldiers, he has continued to develop and grow the musical territory of his particular Fall period. With his band Blue Orchids, his latest release is the punchy-sounding Righte...view item »

Crotocosm
Setting The Scene For An Island Battle

MJ Lallo
Take Me With You

Sadly nothing to do with Prince’s Purple Rain highlight, Take Me With You is in fact a collection of home-recordings made by sound artist/experimental poet MJ Lallo back in the 80's. These New Age-y combos of drum computer, cosmic synthesiser effects and Lallo’s highly processed voc...view item »

Legowelt

DIY experimental psych-dub duo Peaking Lights change up from releasing on their own label to drop sounds on a full-blown dance music label: new extended EP Sea of Sand is distributed by Dekmantel.

Shackleton
Furnace of Guts

He ranged from school punk bands to dancehall duos before settling on becoming an electronic whizz and label owner. Furnace of Guts is Shackleton’s latest 12” slice of spacey da...view item »

Concretism
For Concrete and Country

Some good old-fashioned idiosyncrasy from Concretism here. For Concrete And Country synthesises much of the Great British oddball lineage - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box Records, Public Service Broadcasting etc. - with a newly-resurfaced Cold War paranoia. It’s the aural...view item »

Dub Surgeon
The Lost Future

The tracks in this record are named quite well because they are literally given a number. A number 1 to 13, in fact. I kind of wish more bands would do this because it certainly makes it easier. Anyway, Dub Surgeon has released The Lost Future and it brings us 'an authentic dub experience'. Released on Ark to Ashes and available on vinyl LP.&nbs...view item »

Admiral
Cash On The Line

The press release for Cash On The Line, the debut album by Admiral, skirts around the idea in rather waffle-based way that the music contained within is from another world or time. Electric pianos, drones, jazz, funk and tropicalia are mentioned. What we do know for sure is that it’s an LP on Wandering Eye, the label run b...view item »

Omar-S feat. Simon Black
I'll Do It Again

Omar S switches it up a smidgen on his latest drop. ‘I’ll Do It Again’ is definitely still identifiable as the work of the FXHE boss - only Omar can carry off that sort of lo-fi bongo-techno thing with such aplomb. However, ...view item »

Maelstrom
Fragment

More electro from the Central Processing Unit label. This time it's from Maelstrom, who returns to the label after July 2018's ECZO, with the four-track EP Fragment. The bass is as tough as you might expect, and I think I detect a hint of acid? I'm no expert. Most impres...view item »

With Come Again, what started out as a vehicle for Paul Lamont has now bloomed into a fully-fledged band. Lamont, together with collaborator Olivier Wychuyse, are Grand Blue Heron, a band whose influences are of the noisy and hardcore variety, but are also more than capable of holding down a mean melod...view item »

Lee 'Scratch' Perry

Insecure Men
Karaoke for One: Vol. 1

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by.

A Certain Ratio
The Graveyard and The Ballroom

The Graveyard and the Ballroom was the very first album released by A Certain Ratio.

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension.

Inventive, trend-bending hip-pop soulsmith Janelle Monáe returns with a host of collaborators for Dirty Computer.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time.
