Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Multi-Love

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

9/10 according to our Robin on 21st May 2015

Behold ‘Multi-Love’, wherein Unknown Mortal Orchestra get out of the psych pop game and take up a nice suburban retirement listening to Prince; wherein they forget the high-minded art practices and sing La La La La, La La La La, because it feels good; wherein their studio sounds like an open-air funk fair…view full details.

The Debutantes
Adams Apples / Kids

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd May 2015

When I reviewed the Debutantes previous tape I said they sounded a bit like September Girls...little knowing that actual September Girls were involved in it somehow. Anyway listen carefully to opener ‘Adams Apples’ then you can just about hear a tune nestling under all the sludge. Yes you…view full details.

Golden Gunn
Golden Gunn

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 20th May 2015

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Steve Gunn and Mr. Hiss of the Golden Messengers had joined the Strokes, on the basis of that album artwork; in reality, though, they’ve teamed up to weave a terse strand of psychedelia into a rather pretty folk sound that just comes naturally. Originally released …view full details.

Wolfgang Voigt
Ruckverzauberung 10 / National Park

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 20th May 2015

To sum up - this sounds like the cover. It seems that when presented as natural a setting as a national park, German stargazer Wolfgang Voigt turns to the lush timbres of the orchestra to create pastoral scenes much like Beethoven did 207 years ago. My apologies to Mr Gas if that seemed like a dig, because this is pure …view full details.

The KVB
Mirror Being

12 people love me. Be the 13th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 20th May 2015

Nothing says cold and calculated like a grayscale picture of pillars holding up a huge empty room, so props to the KVB for accurately prefacing their record. As someone who hates pillars and considers them arbitrary to our particular office’s structure, I’m relieved that this record is everything you could possibly want from our favo…view full details.

Konntinent
Empire Line

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

9/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

It looked like that was gonna be it for Anthony Harrison’s Konntinent project. After a supposedly a final ambient peep in 2012, his new project Paco Sala would replace yesterday’s mournful tones, the original follow up to Opal Island shelved and sentiment left at the door. Having somet…view full details.

Wume
Maintain

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

9/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Rather than dizzying with considered production, Baltimore duo Wume strip back to the tried and tested synth ‘n’ drum combo, garnering obligatory Kraftwerk-related comparisons. Yes, the synth sounds that Albert Schatz makes sound kinda cute and kooky (is kitsch the word?) and April Camlin’s drums…view full details.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

8/10 according to our Hayley on 21st May 2015

Prolific Californian noisemakers Thee Oh Sees are back and thankfully sounding louder than ever: 2014’s ‘Drop’ was a comparatively mellow and varied offering following John Dwyer’s move from San Francisco to LA and his intention to take a “well deserved break”, making fans wonder if the days of heavy psych and…view full details.

Valet
Nature

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd May 2015

The opening track ‘Sunday’ on this unassuming looking album sounds so much like a track off Slowdive’s ‘Pygmalion’ that you can see why the people at Kranky snapped the Kit Kat when they heard it. It features washes of Cocteau’s-like guitar, ethereal female vocals soaring away be…view full details.

Jon DeRosa
Black Halo

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 20th May 2015

The most variable and happily spontaneous of artists Jon DeRosa has opted once more to halt his tendencies towards ambient and country (I know, right?) in favour of his more direct and plaintive singer-songwriter style. When we last heard him in this particular mode, his baritone brooded and resigned itself; not much has changed on ‘Black …view full details.

Vatican Shadow / Cut Hands
Azar Swan Variations

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 20th May 2015

Some of you might recognise these lads, one of which cast his Vatican Shadow all over Function last year for a dark, punishing LP while the other can’t get enough of his Afro Noise, whatever that is. I’m assuming Saharan field recordings. The 2 tracks contained here are obfuscated reworks of com…view full details.

Akkord
HTH040 (Regis / Fis Remixes)

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

8/10 according to our Ant on 22nd May 2015

Uncompromising Brummy techno master Regis and Kiwi grime bludgeoner Fis both take elements of ‘Gravure’ and ‘Continuum’ for the second set of Akkord remixes, preceded by The Haxan Cloak and …view full details.

Doomsquad
Pageantry Suite

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Robin doesn’t know what dancing is so he gave me this. For a squad of doom, they’re actually quite fun, making energetic, hazily produced dance-pop that might make Robin’s feet tap if it’s good. Already the word ‘tropical’ has been slapped on it, a word which has become synonymous with ‘tropical indie po…view full details.

Elysia Crampton
Moth / Lake

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

8/10 according to our Jim on 19th May 2015

Elysia Crampton is a half-Latina, transgender artist currently based in rural Virginia. She has a pretty unique take on the complexities of American history and identity that she has been exploring in her Shenandoah concept series; of which this single is the first installment. Matching both the density of her subject-matter and the luscious, hy…view full details.

Submerse
Stay Home

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

LP on Project: Mooncircle. Some classic ‘90s style R&B vibes coming from this LP from Submerse which melts smooth guitar and silky synths but with some solid beats with echo the urban environment which inspired Stay Home. In line with other groups such as Silk Rhodes, Submerse has made a sultry collection of tunes which mines the ‘90s but stays new. A soundtrack for lounging on…view full details.

Thomas Brinkmann
What You Hear (Is What You Hear)

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

10/10 according to our Jim on 20th May 2015

Just a couple of weeks ago I was waxing lyrical about a collaborative release by Mark Fell and Gábor Lázár; praising them for liberating their mercurial rhythms from the gridlocked template that has driven so much minimal techno into the mire. Well, this latest release by Thomas Brinkman is just as mind blowing as that recor…view full details.

The Sly and Unseen
All Similarities and Technical Difficulties End Here

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 20th May 2015

Hibernate, the winter scarf of drone labels, continue to fend off nature’s cold bite with this gorgeously comforting record. ‘All Similarities & Technical Difficulties End Here’ is minimalist but sounds maximal, enveloping its listeners into creased harmonium drones, lightly sprinkled with the sounds of life: dogs barking, …view full details.

Slow Steve
Steps

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd May 2015

Slow Steve isn’t Seasick Steve. Thank God. Instead he’s another type of Steve.... a slow one. He’s on Morr so you kind of know what you are getting, namely limp electronics and vocals. Opener ‘Minuit’ is quite catchy though with a repetitive refrain going over and over again over some electronics that sound …view full details.

Little Wings
Explains

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 22nd May 2015

Kyle Field has been releasing records both sad and ramshackle for many a moon, and on ‘Explains’ he sounds totally at ease with his process: this record of folk ballads relaxes even as it broods, inflecting the minor key like it’s a familiar friend stopping by for a visit, invoking ballads like they’re exhibitions. It&rsq…view full details.

Limited beige coloured vinyl reissue LP on Dagored. Edition of 500 copies. Another corker from the Florentine label Dagored, here we have Stelvio Cipriani’s soundtrack to the 1972 film La polizia ringrazia, one of the first poliziottesco films.

Limited lead grey with red blood splatter vinyl reissue LP on Dagored. Edition of 500 copies. We all know Ennio Morricone from the unmistakable themes from Once Upon a Time in the West and The Good, the Bad & the Ugly. Less ubiquitously (how often do I get to use that word?) known is the man’s soundtracks for other films. Comandamenti per un Gangster, the 1968 Italian thriller, features mor…view full details.

Deluxe 'nuclear' style black + white vinyl gatefold 2LP on Minimal Wave. Edition of 1000 copies. Formed in London 1982 by Andy Oppenheimer and Martin Lloyd, pioneering 80s minimal electronic duo Oppenheimer Analysis met at the 1979 World Science Fiction Convention and quickly bonded over their love of sci-fi and early electronic synthesiser music such as Bowie and The Human League. ‘New Mexico’ is a remastered double album collecti…view full details.

Deluxe green vinyl 2LP on The Control Group. Includes an additional 10 tracks of demo, live and unheard music. El Perro Del Mar first released this self-titled album in Sweden 10 years ago, so why not release it again? The record has a sound I can only describe as ‘muted-jaunty’, pulled down further by Sarah Assbring’s morose tones. Compelling!

Reissue 7" on Superior Viaduct. Early early early L.A. punk from The Germs, first hammered onto tape (in an actual garage, no less) in 1977. Basic, direct, skronky, lo-fi, and altogether true to punk ideals.

The debut by Hector Zazou and Joseph Racaille, better known as Zazou ‘n’ Racaille or just ZNR, is a collection of dreamy synthesizers, toned-down guitar shreds, and distant woodwinds.

Summer Camp
Bad Love (single)

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

5/10 according to our Clinton on 21st May 2015

I'll give you a clue. Look at the title...particularly pay attention to the first word. It desperately, desperately wants to be MGMT's 'Time to Pretend' but has no idea how to do it so settles for a squiggly synth pattern and some gloopy keyboards and hopes for the best. Positives? It's still by far the best thing on the album.  They have a…view full details.

Tape on Bird. Tender Prey is the solo work of Laura Bryon, making indie-punk-pop with a lo-fi aesthetic.  Some of the Organ Calzone cassette (her longest recording to date) sounds the vocals are bleeding in from the bottom of a long corridor, although tunefulness is maintained.

2CD edition on earMUSIC. The first ‘proper’ album by Ash since Twilight of the Innocents a whole eight years ago… Kablammo! announces itself rather firmly with that title, and the first single, ‘Cocoon’ matches that tone with straight-down-the-line riffs and a sweeping chorus. “We have lots of energy!” seems to be the message.

The Fall
Sub-Lingual Tablet

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 8th May 2015

The Fall are increasingly beginning to resemble that eccentric elderly relative that you visit from time to time - you are amused by their oddities, glad they are still around but you wouldn’t want to spend too much time in their company. There hasn’t been a great Fall album in quite a few years now though I saw them play a s…view full details.

Limited 7" on Croque Macadam. Edition of 300 copies. Here are two ‘60s inspired psychedelic, garage rock numbers from Os Noctambulos with Outsider. Expect some fuzzy organ along with some woozy guitar and some vocals which sound as if they’ve been lifted from a 13th Floor Elevators track. Both of the tracks on Outsider were made in one raw afternoon in Toulouse and will only featur…view full details.

'Neutron Dream' Coloured vinyl LP on Futurismo in deluxe reversible die-cut sleeve. New Wave's finest dressed band -- get back to me on that one -- settled down in 1977 to play a hushed and fairly private show at The Eagle Street Saloon, a gloriously derelict band worthy of the band's affectations. 'Miracle Witness' is Devo early on, with barely a fan or record to their name. Can you help them figure this music thing out?…view full details.

Music For A Flat Landscape (Original soundtrack to The Goob)

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

The Goob, from what I can get from imdb, is a gritty coming of age tale about a young lad and his mum’s new bloke and complications. ‘Goob’ is the name of the main character, the silliness of the word at odds with the pensive, restrained synthworks that Border Community mainstay Luke Abbott has laid underneath, playing at your …view full details.

9/10 according to our Jim on 13th May 2015

Holly Herndon has generated a considerable buzz since she released ‘Movement’ on RVNG intl. in 2012. Her music seems to straddle progressive electronica, contemporary pop and avant garde composition; all bundled together with a hefty conceptual dose of technological evangelism.

Chillest of the chillers, Weird Owl sparkle psychedelic synths like a fog over lazily strummed chords of the chillwave kingdom, creating a record that sounds bold but irresistibly relaxed.
