The Pop Group / Sleaford Mods
Nations / Face To Faces

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 25th June 2015

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. I have a hunch that the new Sleaford Mods album is going to be a good one. There's plenty more left to say, right? Plenty more grimy bass lines to sample. 'Face to F…view full details.

The Spills
A Film and a Frame /​ Crash​-​landed Clouds

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

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

7" on Too Pure. The Spills are a West Yorkshire crew, self-defining as indie rock but with vocals that sound more of the hardcore tradition. The opening of Crash-landed Clouds shows this off, the singer having seemingly zero regard for the health of his own voice. A good thing. Paired with A Film And A Frame on the a-side, the single is out on Too Pure.…view full details.

Limited 7" on City Slang. Edition of 500 copies. You may well have seen Naytronix’s Nate Brenner already, as part of tUnE-yArDs touring band. But you haven’t heard the music of this solo project yet, as this single is the first ever release under the name, in advance of his upcoming album. Funky-weird 70s style goodness. Mister Divine / Shadows is released by City Slang.…view full details.

CLEAR vinyl LP on Unorthodox Records. Being around for 35 years is a tall order for a lot of people, let alone bands. Thankfully, just like their religious namesake, survival comes naturally to the Church. With the release of their 25th album Further/Deeper, they show that they are devoted to their cause of making outstanding psychedelic rock.…view full details.

Gatefold 2LP + 900x300mm fold-out poster on Monkeytown. Includes download for 3 additional bonus tracks. Most often, it’s debut albums that carry the same name as the artist. When it’s a later release, it’s about an artist capturing their essence. Such is the case with Funkstörung, whose self-titled fourth album sees the group focussing on their glitch-hop roots, doing what they do best. Why change a win…view full details.

Canada In Space

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

Alden Penner used to be in charge of the Unicorns, a ramshackle indie rock band who were far weirder than their friends Arcade Fire. Afraid of death and gleeful in life, their anxieties were put on display with ‘Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone?’ and then…view full details.

Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells
Everything's Getting Older

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

9/10 according to our Mike on 5th May 2011

A fascinating collaboration here between ex-Arab Strap mumbler Aidan Moffat and Glaswegian experimental jazz composer and pianist Bill Wells. This really works. It's beautifully recorded and as would be expected the vocals and piano are to the fore, but it never slips into a rut. The album's centrepiece seems to be the shimmering, achingly beaut…view full details.

Domenique Dumont
Comme Ca

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

This music sounds the way blowing bubbles does: you think it’s all fun and games, and it is, I will grant you that -- but it’s the kind of fun that is literally floating away from you as it happens, submitting its joy to the ether instead of sticking with you. Fun isn’t for you. Fun is for the sky. Not much is …view full details.

Dolphins Into The Future / Lieven Martens Moana
Songs Of Gold, Incandescent

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

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. Listening to a great number of Moana’s tracks will involve the listener in aquatic field recordings and kosmische synths, married under a lo-fi limelight. Submerged t…view full details.

Reissue 10" on Victory Records. The Omega Sessions is one of the earliest recorded documents of these hardcore pioneers. Bad Brains show that they had ‘it’ from day one, with several early versions of what would later become favourites. 10 inches of vinyl and just over 15 minutes of sound, keeping it nice and direct.

Noah
Sivutie

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

Japanese R&B singer Noah has made a skewed pop record here, one that rarely gets anywhere near the verse-chorus structure golden mean. Instead, the gorgeously serene production around her is fragmented into tiny pieces, her voice appearing only in strands, as if intuiting with the same syncopation as the beats underneath. ‘Sivutie&rsqu…view full details.

Model Alpha
Dimensions

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

‘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. What secret makers of the record Model Alpha do, though, is…view full details.

Human Greed is the cheerily titled project of Michael Begg (also of Fovea Hex) and the artist Deryk Thomas (the guy who painted those Swans and Angels of Light covers with strange cutesy animals doing nasty things). It’s an album of some of the chilliest, most haunting ambie…view full details.

Exoteric Continent

LP on Hospital Productions. I had hoped that Referéndum might represent Hospital Productions long-awaited commentary on David Cameron’s EU referendum, but upon listening it doesn’t seem to be. Instead, Exoteric Continent brings some potent noise techno into play, the material previously put out as two tapes but now brought together on an LP.…view full details.

Repress LP on Editions Gravats aka High Wolf. The cover image alone is enough to get me excited for Mane Thecel Phares, an album of pulsating psychedelic electronica with an Afrobeat attention to rhythm and beat. Black Zone Myth Chant is the alias of the psych-drone musician High Wolf and the album continues his ritualistic, savage and enthralling approach to electronica. A vinyl editi…view full details.

LP on Knives. J.G. Biberkopf has the privilege of acting as the grand opening artiste for Kuedo’s new label Knives. Ecologies is a fascinating trip through digital worlds, moving swiftly from abstract floatings that put me in mind of an instrumental Holly Herndon, to territory grounded by beats. Very inventive stuff.…view full details.

Recorded in April 1979, Martin Hannet's unique production techniques and Ian Curtis's doomed lyrics and monotone vocal lend the album a downbeat greatness that has been often emulated yet rarely surpassed.

Really black hair or not he seems to be the only ex Smith with his reputation sort of intact.
