Rrose
For Aquantice

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

8/10 according to our Ant on 2nd July 2015

Now that the cat is out of the bag I no longer need to use terms like “mystery artist” and “established artist working incognito”. It was only a matter of time.... The internet can’t keep a secret. He gets about though, that Jimmy Tarbuck bloke, doesn't he eh? New material from Rrose is always welcome around…view full details.

J.G. Biberkopf
Ecologies

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

7/10 according to our Jim on 1st July 2015

Jacques Gaspard Biberkopf (or J.G. as he calls himself- no doubt a nod to the warped modernities of JG Ballard) makes jarring, hyper-vivid digital sound collages. Sometimes these disorient, plunging the listener into starkly contrasting and bizarre combinations of field recordings and cinematic sound textures; at other times the tracks coalesce …view full details.

Automatic Tasty
The Life Parochial

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 1st July 2015

Automatic Tasty is presumably a reference to the synthesised, hot sizzling funky house things that are contained within Irish producer Jonny Dillon’s music. Jazzy chords are played by electro synths while chopped grooves strut at an even pace, mimicking your best badass walk, but doing so better than you ever could. They’re not overb…view full details.

9/10 according to our Brian on 20th June 2014

I have some great stuff on this week. Last week was a little underwhelming but a new Touch release is always gonna to have this old pooch wagging his eager tail. I won't harp on too much about this guy's work. I have a huge place in my heart for the astonishing 'Treny' and also the 'Glimmer' album he delivered for Ghostly was pretty awe-…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio

7/10 according to our Clinton on 10th June 2015

On the thickest vinyl you’ve ever seen in your life comes the latest missive from Our Head Technician aka Martin Jenkins aka Pye Corner Audio. On the A side you get a blast of krauty electronica with a nice four note fluttering bass motif, some seriously wailing siren sounds and massive Depeche Mode-…view full details.

12" on Danse Noire inc. Gatekeeper Remix. This Sick Beat is a collection of stumbling techno sounds, from Milanese Haf Haf. Apparently these tracks were put together alongside a physics thesis, and while they don’t quite have the mad rigour of a Mark Fell, they do have a pleasing oddity to them. Includes three original tracks and a remix of one of them by Gatekeeper.…view full details.

CD on AY. bvdub is the solo project of an American living in China. Neither of those locations particularly bleed through into the music however, which sounds a lot of the time like the vocals from classic house tracks echoing around in a room, with some droney synth and some percussion happening next door.

180g vinyl reissue, gatefold 2LP on Rise Above. ‘In Memorium’ is an underground doom metal classic documenting one of the most influential bands of the nineties at a time when they were first discovering their explorative feet, carving out their unique voice through a host of rich influences.

State Champion
Fantasy Error

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 1st July 2015

I can’t help but think this is all so sweet. State Champion are a crew of punks (read: ramshackle folkies) from Louisville with an affection for noise, but mainly a great deal of compassion for the strange scene they live in. On ‘Fantasy Errors’, they create a sound you might expect from anyone who simultaneously outgrows and p…view full details.

Sakana Hosomi + Chihei Hatakeyama
Frozen Silence

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 1st July 2015

What happens when a guitar and a synth blur together for minutes and minutes? Ice cracking, according to Hatakeyama / Hosomi / one of their associates. I’m hearing a lot more melting than cracking, a sort of slow ooze perhaps. But would you expect less from the Japanese man that Robin has dubbed ‘the floaty monarch’ and his par…view full details.

Progression
The Coriolis Effect

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

7/10 according to our Laurie on 1st July 2015

This is a Blueprint release with a white label on it. It’s also hand stamped, because machines can try to stamp but will ultimately fail. The creator here, Progression, is based in London. That’s all I know. What I can say is that this is some extremely high octane techno, prime time uptempo stuff that’ll get people doi…view full details.

Just when I thought Blueprint were releasing a 12” of 90s R&B edits. Nope, that world will never exist, instead we’re stuck in this hell hole where James Ruskin and Mark Broom come together and make excellent machine music. Goddamnit world.

This is a misty release so mysterious that 2 of the tracks have cheekily been given the name ‘Misterious’ by their creators Romain Poncet and DJ Deep. While the mistique is all tongue in cheek, the air of the foggy unknown is pretty explicit in the music. Oh yeah. This stuff is dark, dark enough to warrant a pun alright. The …view full details.

The Church like to be in the ascension, and with their new record, the career victory-lap that is ‘Further / Deeper’, they’ve crafted 2015’s most unfathomably huge rock record, one that not weighs a tonne in both grams and feelings.

Nate Brenner plays in tUnE-yArDs’ band when they hit the road, but away from the band’s intense and rigorously rhythmic confines, he calls himself naytronix (really though) and makes rather comfortable lounge music -- the kind of easy listening sub-electronica you could find yourself sinking into an armchair with. “Mr Divine&rd…view full details.

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 1st July 2015

The Spills pour their fucking heart out on “A Film And A Frame”, a new single of crying guitar, moaning vocals and disgruntled bass fuzz. Call it indie rock, if you must, but these West Yorkshirians sound like they’ve been travelling coast to coast in search of an emo fix, wailing like they were in an American pop-punk band, as…view full details.

Here’s a pop record that doesn’t know it’s a pop record. Nobody tell Capac; they’re doing fine. Full of a noble appreciation for build-ups, grandiose gestures and experimental music, the band have made something of an epic debut, creasing together a meditative backdrop with shades of ambient, distortion and fine beatwork.…view full details.

7/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

Funkstorung have tried on many different electronic hats over the years, finding the time between their busy schedule of endless remixes to give IDM, breakbeats, electro-pop and acid house a whirl. Over twenty years, though, the production duo have only released four full lengths; this, the fourth, sums them up with erudite pop music stitched fr…view full details.

Nowt sticks around on SD very long, it's one of the very best techno labels out there these days. Minimal but powerful 4/4 odysseys for feet and minds.

Aha! Miserable Scottish buggers The Twilight Sad as re-worked by rotund English bloke Robert Smith. Should be fun.

Whoever out these two groups together knew what they were doing. Both are (relatively) elderly but they say more than all the more youthful anodyne groups put together.

Lieven Martens Moana -- that’s Mr. Dolphins, to you -- has made a lot of very special ambient music over the years, a kind that envisions synthesis as a part of nature.

Japanese R&B singer Noah has made a skewed pop record here, one that rarely gets anywhere near the verse-chorus structure golden mean.

‘Dimensions’ is a passively moving record of analogue psychedelia, taking straightforward and stubbornly hypnotic ideas and processing them through a constant synth symphony -- like the best psych-tinged electronica, it moves as if it never begun and won’t ever finish.
