Josef K
It's Kinda Funny (The Singles)

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

Josef K were a classic post-punk group in the Scottish scene surrounding Postcard Records in the late 70’s and early 80’s. It’s Kinda Funny gathers all the band’s singles, plus the accompanying B-sides, into a compelling sharp-edged whole. Cool and sleek and wirey. Vinyl LP on Les Disques du Crepuscule.…view full details.

Lightning In A Twilight Hour
And All The Ships At Sea

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

I’ve been ranting internally all week about what has happened to everything. How everyone seems to be het up about nothing. About how everything is designed just to get something trending., Radiohead cancel the internet so we have to talk about it indefinitely. And yet and yet, someone like Lightning in a Twilight Hour releases a new record and it doesn’t even come c…view full details.

a.P.A.t.T.
Fun With Music

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Fun with music? I don’t think so. You certainly won’t find any of that among these walls. Frowns, maybe. a.P.A.t.T are having a good time, though, or at least want you to think they are. Good for them, I say: this weird and psychedelically-tinged pop record brings to mind several “fun” bands at once, with the jaunty melodies but tight rhythms of …view full details.

Pregnant
Made In China

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Two dudes make a collage of sound and release it on tape: the movie. A pitch I have as of yet been unsuccessful in getting the greenlight for, but hey, it’s based on a real story. Pregnant’s two tracks here feed off accidental energies and momentary glitches in the system -- they assemble samples and then skirt around them in such a way that would have …view full details.

Youth Code
Commitment To Complications

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

8/10 according to our Robin

 Lol. Listen to “(Armed)” and afterwards, listen to “Transitions”. Trust me, you’re supposed to -- one literally leads into the next. The first, a synth ambient pastiche, seems to momentarily forget about Youth Code completely, but it literally gets buried by “Transitions”, a garish and purposefully ugly piece of synth-sparkle punk that mov…view full details.

We say: Catchy indie electro-pop with big hitting guest list.

Little Scream
Cult Following

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

7/10 according to our Robin

This busy main street of a record comes from the inspiringly positive Laurel Sprengelmeyer, a synth-pop artist who plays with the gloopy bluster of ‘Age of Adz’ era Sufjan and the disco implications of the excellent Mozart’s Sister. It’s bright in ways the sun never is here, and full to the brim of ideas, each one democratically layered onto …view full details.

Whyte Horses
Pop Or Not

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Mancunian crate digger Dom Thomas is in charge of thee Whyte Horses, a band who craft loose pop vignettes like they’re planets doing their own thing in an overarching galaxy.;“Pop Or Not” is an ickle slice of psychedelic Mercury, and it moves onto “The Snowfalls” like it’s the slightly bigger Venus. Mixing in proper song-written tunes with swirling and often …view full details.

Left With Pictures
Afterlife

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

Life With Pictures have spent the last ten years or so honing their intelligent pop chops, combining acoustic and electronic sounds. Afterlife is the third album, but first in five years, by the orchestral pop combo. Themes of ending, death and renewal weave through the album, which in many ways reflects the journey the band have been on. Wild Beasts, Ghostpoet and Hood producer Richard Formby was at the controls and…view full details.

Sweet Valley
So Serene

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

Sweet Valley is what happens when Nathan Williams of Wavves teams up with his brother Kynan Williams: they get far-out. Unlike the short sharp shouts of much of Wavves’ work, So Serene is a single 27-minute track, more concerned with hazy, 80&rsquo…view full details.

Nhung Nguyen and Cinchel
Movement Of An Old Soul

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

7/10 according to our Laurie

So it looks like the luxury antique cardboard box edition of this has already sold out so now we can focus on the sounds made by Nhung Nguyen, a sound artiste from Hanoi, Vietnam and Jason Shanley aka Cinchel, hailing from Chicago. And it’s got twinkles. Oh yes, there are the sparkling plinks of the music box here, which TRS releases are more or less guaranteed to contain by now -…view full details.

Driftmachine
Colliding Contours

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

9/10 according to our Laurie

This piece of electronic blippery was handed to me by Clint with the words “it’s not very dark”, shortly before Robin walked up to me and said “it sounds very cold”. So now I’m just sitting here trying to work out what in the world is warm but dark instead of reviewing this wonderful beast. In conclusion, people are confusing. The start of Collidi…view full details.

Drab Majesty
Completely Careless (2012-2015)

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

This release presents the full discography, to date, of Drab Majesty, the atmospheric pop project of Deb Demure: that’s a couple of EP’s and an album’s worth of 80’s-feeling tunes. Completely Careless (2012-2015) is released on the DAIS label as a CD in a jewel case with slip and booklet.…view full details.

Steven Brown
Music For Film & Theatre

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

Dalot
Mutogibito

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

Greek composer Maria Papadomanolaki, better known as Dalot, has been making post-rocky experimental ambient since her debut Loop over Latitudes. Dalot builds lush soundscapes with pleasing melodic themes, expanding towards searing climaxes. Mutogibito continues that trend in a minimalist fashion: focusing more on loops and textures, and building an experience through repetition, Dalot's new album will please fans of old fashioned post-rock as well as IDM.…view full details.

Kate Pierson
Venus / Radio In Bed

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

Kate Pierson has been in that very fun band The B-52s for an impressive 4 decades, but has now started playing and recording solo. This 7” features a Pierson original and a cover of the Shocking Blue classic ‘Venus’. Good times pour out of the speakers! Recorded and released by Jack White…view full details.

Wavves / Cloud Nothings
Split

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

Wavves are in a friendly mood at the moment, so they’ve embarked on a series of joint singles with other cool bands. For this second installment they’ve teamed up with Cloud Nothings, meaning twice the amount of sweeping indie rock action in a single dose. 7” single on the Ghost Ramp label.…view full details.

The Blood Tub Orchestra
The End of My Old Cigar

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

The Blood Tub Orchestra is a project designed to invoke the old of the British Music Hall, with versions of old-time London tunes given a bawdy new electrified spin.

Robert Curgenven
Climata

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

7/10 according to our Laurie

If anyone’s been to Yorkshire Sculpture Park lately, you may have discovered a strange room within a red brick enclosure on the side of the hill. Like a giant boiled egg, the room has had its top lopped off, exposing the contents to the heavens and all the rain, wind and snow that it can hurl at you. …view full details.

Psychic Temple
III

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

This could be the record that elevates Chris Schlarb over to the Jonathan Wilson, Father John Misty side of the musical fence wherea ctual real people have heard of you and enjoy your music. It has a similarly laid back Laurel Canyon feel to those artists harking back the days when guys wi…view full details.

Hakobune
Apsidal Motion

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Hakobune is always there in case you need to relax. Here the Japanese composer had brought out the worlds most minimal CD.  Minimal guitar drones housed in a minimal thin CD with minimal information. 28 page booklet? No thanks. However ‘Apsidal Motion’ is the ideal accompaniment to your minimal apartment and should be filed alongside your…view full details.

New in: Wednesday 4th May 2016

The Durutti Column
LC

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

The second Durutti Column album, LC, was first released in 1981, and it still carries a certain remarkable feel to it. These expanded reissues present the original album in remastered form, and add in a number of compilation tracks, demos, and other rarities: the exact number of bonus tracks varies depending on whether you fancy CD or LP versions.…view full details.

Kane Ikin
Modern Pressure

15 people love me. Be the 16th...

8/10 according to our Ant

Modern Pressure eh! Tell me about it, man. My iCloud password is playing up and I’m visualising myself taking a flight to Apple HQ with a Samurai Sword. Oh hang on, they’ll not let me on a plane with a weapon… I haven’t really thought this one out... Currently easing the stress is this thorou…view full details.

Dieterich & Barnes
The Coral Casino

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

The Dieterich & Barnes this record is attributed to is John Dieterich and Jeremy Barnes, of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw respectively. The Coral Casino is what happened when they spent a day improvising with the specific proviso tha…view full details.

Jack Ketch & The Crowmen
Brimfull of Hate

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

The fourth of seven releases in the F.W.O.A.H (Friends of Worshipful Order of Ancient Headcoats) series, Brimfull Of Hate by Jack Ketch & The Crowmen is a dank post-punk trip down the slippery stairs into a basement of questionable integrity. Out on limited edition reissue LP from M'Lady's Records. Edition of 500 copies remastered from the original tapes.…view full details.

OOFJ
Acute Feast

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

OOFJ is a project put together by Katherine Mills-Rymer and Jenno Bjørnkjaer, who, the press release assures us (in slightly tonally inappropriate terms) are a “real-life couple”. Acute Feast whips up frantic electronic percussion, orchestral samples, and swooning vocals into a heavily atmospheric whole. Limited LP, on Fake Diamond and Ring The Alarm.…view full details.

Carl Zittrer
Black Christmas

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

Black Christmas is an early slasher horror from 1974, presenting the classic theme of murdered young people with a festive twist! Carl Zittrer produced the dramatic soundtrack, which has never been released at all outside of the film. It wasn’t easy to track down the master tapes, but Zittrer and Waxwork have managed it, now presenting this OST on vinyl for the first time ever.…view full details.

Douglas Pipes
Krampus

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

For his soundtrack to Krampus, Douglas Pipes has pulled in influences and references to a stack of classic Christmas horror material. Double 180g red vinyl, packaged in a grand, heavyweight gatefold jacket festooned with original artwork and with a large-scale booklet full of informative liner notes. Released on Waxworks Records.…view full details.

Piero Umiliani & I Suoi Oscillatori
Il Mondo Dei Romani

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

Italian avant-soundtrack man Piero Umiliani produced this strange music as an accompaniment to Il Mondo Dei Romani,  an early 70’s documentary about ancient Rome. Umiliani believed that the most appropriate music for the project would be a recreation of traditional instruments via a collection of synthesisers: remarkable sounds! Orange vinyl on We Release W…view full details.

Alaric
End of Mirrors

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

End of Mirrors is a dark and melancholy collection of post-punk from this Oakland band. Alaric have been making an introspective and aggressive punk for eight years now, but this CD and vinyl LP on Neurot is denser, more claustrophobic and more experimental than anything they’ve released before.…view full details.

Lucy
Self Mythology

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

Lucy runs the Stroboscopic Artefacts label, on which her new full-length is seeing release. Self Mythology has all the techno credentials you’d expect of a release on this Berlin label, but flutes and improvised vocals (from collaborator Jon Jacobs) push some of these tracks into interesting experimental spaces. CD and double LP editions.…view full details.

John Harrison
Tales From The Darkside: The Movie

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

Tales From The Darkside: The Movie is a 1990 horror flick full of creepy creatures. Of course, these spooky tales must be accompanied by cinematic synthesiser action, and that’s where John Harrison comes into the picture. This release presents the entire soundtrack (not previously available in full), in remastered form!…view full details.

Pram
The Stars Are So Big...The Earth Is So Small

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

Pram, a band of Harrogate natives, were an experimental, krautrock-inspired prospect who brought in instruments like trumpets, theremins and glass hammers to achieve fresh sounds. The Stars Are So Big… The Earth Is So Small is their 1993 debut for the Too Pure label, and has now been reissued after too long out of print. Coloured vinyl, on Medical Records.…view full details.

Pram
Helium

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

Pram, a band of Harrogate natives, were an experimental, krautrock-inspired prospect who brought in instruments like trumpets, theremins and glass hammers to achieve fresh sounds. Helium is their second album for the Too Pure label, originally released in 1994 and out of print for some time... 180g vinyl reissue, on Medical Records.…view full details.

Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds
La Arana Es La Vida

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

Kid Congo Powers (who, lest we forget, played with real history-making bands like The Cramps, The Gun Club and Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds) is in a Mexican mood with La Arana Es La Videa. With his band The Pink Monkey Birds, he lays down some vibed-out grooves. Please note, the CD and the LP versions have different track listings and sleeve designs! On In The Red.…view full details.

Synthetic ID
Impulses

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

Synthetic ID are a punk band with a cold, anxious aesthetic: these songs sound like they are constantly looking over their shoulder to check for impending threats. Tight and sharp and excellent. Impulses is released by John O’Dwyer’s (of Thee Oh Sees) essential garage rock imprint Castle Face.…view full details.

Carter Burwell
Anomalisa

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

Anomalisa is a stop-motion film from Charlie Kaufman, a director very keen on films that challenge the viewer’s mind (e.g. Being John Malkovich). Such films require a potent soundtrack, and Carter Burwell provides it here. Presented to you on very fetching, silver-coloured, 180g vinyl. 1000 copies available.…view full details.

Bernard Herrmann
Taxi Driver

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

Martin Scorcese’s Taxi Driver is of course an essential cinematic classic, and Bernard Herrmann’s incredibly atmospheric soundtrack plays an important part. This release contains the full score on vinyl for the first time, as well as incorporating the original 1976 soundtrack release. Double, yellow vinyl LP set with new artwork, out on Waxwork.…view full details.

SQURL
Live at Third Man Records

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

Check this out: SQÜRL is a band with Jim Jarmusch in it! Yeah that’s right, the director with the excellent music taste can also play out himself. Live At Third Man Records is a great slab of weird-rock music, with the riffs and rhythms augmented with tapes, loops and feedbacks. On Jack White’s Third Man labe…view full details.

Tom Adams
Voyages By Starlight EP

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

Tom Adams sat down at his piano one afternoon and recorded this EP, no questions asked. That’s quite impressive, as the songs here are both pitch-perfect and fairly detailed: evidently we are dealing with quite a talent in Adams. Swooping vocals and subtle electronics join the stately piano for some heartfelt pieces. 12” on Kowloon Records.…view full details.

Various
Cititrax: Tracks Volume Two

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

The Cititrax label flexes its roster-muscles here with the second in its sampler series. They are right to show off, as they have the hot talents of Silent Servant and L/F/D/M on their side, not to mention Chinese producer Tzusing. There are 999 copies of Cititrax: Trax Volume Two out there, pressed to clear red vinyl.…view full details.

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 1

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

Tenniscoats are a very special band. Operating out of Tokyo, they are little known to non-Japanese-speaking audiences. Their simple melodic songs have something wondrous about them, something to hold on to tightly. Music Exists is to be a quadruple album, but it is being released in bits and pieces so as not to overwhelm. Vol. 1 is out now on Alien Transistor.…view full details.

Matt Carlson / Michael Stirling / Doug Theriault
Aakash

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

Aakash is the first recording of this new constellation of players, wherein Golden Retriever's Matt Carlson and his synthesisers are joined by Michael Stirling’s processed voice and Doug Theriault’s guitar and electronics. 2 sides of mind-expanding electro-ragas is the result, sounding simultaneou…view full details.

Facit
Mandag Mon Amour

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

Maudlin synth-song from Sweden’s Joakim Karlsson and Mai Nestor. The pair split vocal duties between them on the 6 tracks of Mandag Mon Amour, although the sorrowful tone they share make them seem like two sides of the same coin. Delicate synth arpeggios spiral behind them. Edition of 300 12” EPs, on Waving Hands.…view full details.

Jaye Bartell
Light Enough

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Unbelievable front cover. Simply unbelievable. A pasty and awkward Bartrell in mid air. I guess it signifies he is 'light enough'.  It’s a shame that my first impressions of this were that awkward photo as this is really lovely. Bartrell has a marvellous chocolate brown voice which spouts words out of his mouth over gentle and evocative guitar …view full details.

We say: Yoni Wolf of Why? and Serengeti bring the flows.

Yoni & Geti
Testarossa

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

Hi Yoni. Been a while. Hi Geti  - been about 5 seconds. Whereas Serengeti has been everywhere of late, we’ve not heard a squeak from Yoni Wolf (aka Why?) for some time.  Well here they are together for their second collaboration (never heard the first) and it’s made up of the sort of hip-hop/indie-rock cross breed you might expect. What is less is …view full details.

We say: Domeheaded ambient lord gets cinematic.

Brian Eno
The Ship

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

A new Brian Eno album is always something to get excited about, but particularly after a four year wait and in collaboration with the iconic Warp records. The Ship is Eno on classic form, creating beautiful ambient music built from minimalist drones. Here he's also particularly fascinated with looping voices and has included a Velvet Underground cover for good measure. …view full details.

Andrew Paine
Sky Movers Must Fight On

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

Andrew Paine, often seen in collaboration with Richard Youngs these days (as a duo, as The Flexibles, or as Ilk), also operates solo. On Sky Movers Must Fight On he showcases his unusual craft: stark drum machine rhythms push forwards while voices, pianos, guitar noise and all sorts of other sounds swirl around. On Glass Records Redux.…view full details.

Sun Araw
Live Kraniche bei den Elbbrücken

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

Cameron Stallone’s space-dub noise-hippy project Sun Araw presented these sounds to a live audience in Hamburg last year. With a three-person line-up using synths, guitar and a ‘Bambus Sax’, Live Kraniche bei den Elbbrücken is a nice deep trip. 300 copies (each LP comes with a postcard!) on Hafenschlamm Records.…view full details.

We say: Antony, Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke collab.

Anohni
Hopelessness

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

Forget everything you know. If you didn’t like Antony and the Johnsons then please don’t worry about it. If you did then this really shouldn’t be too far away for comfort. Ahohni is of course the new name for the former Antony Hegarty and this collaboration with …view full details.
