Dance For Your Life – Rare Finnish Funk & Disco 1976-1986

Lordi. HIM. Apocalyptica. When one thinks of Finnish music, the words ‘funk’ and ‘disco’ are not ones that immediately spring to mind. The people at Svart Records - despite being a label that largely releases prog and metal - are out to change those perce...view item »

Portal
ION

Fans of twisted up black metal rejoice as Australia's bleakest export return for their fifth full length album. Expect the trademark buzzing shreds, leanings towards Psyopus and Crowpath, but a sound that further pushes the band into the kind of depraved obscurity that earned them their dimly gleaming reputation...view item »

Witch Mountain
Witch Mountain

Herein I will give props to Witch Mountain, a band I expected myself to not at all like. My doom preference is the stuff with the indecipherable skramz vocals, where the cleaner, more Sabbath-invoking material usually leaves me wanting more grit and pummel. Witch Mountain have come to kick my ass and tell me to grow up, and I appreciate it: thei...view item »

Derek Carr
Distant Systems

Westmeath, Ireland's Derek Carr is an established figure with a fair few classics under his belt. He developed his finely crafted style of techno after digesting comps such as Bio-Rhythms and 'Pioneers of the Hypnotic Groove' from Warp. Deep, soulful techno with nods to Kraftwerk's melodicism and Depeche Mode's throbbing pop. ...view item »

JAI/MAHL (Jamal Moss / Hieroglyphic Being)
#DontjusttalkaboutitbeAboutIt

Sneaky release from Jamal Moss (better known as Hieroglyphic Being) under his JAI/MAHL alias. One of the most dependably interesting artists in electronic music, pretty much everything he does is worth listening to. #DontjusttalkaboutitbeAboutIt is a bit more conventional than what he's ...view item »

Visions & Phurpa
Monad

Apparently (and disappointingly) not a DJ Screw-style chopping and screwing of the back catalogue of Mission Of Burma, the 100th release from Berlin imprint Cyclic Law is a coming-together between label boss Visions and shamanic Russian choir Phurpa. The co...view item »

Rommek
Igneous - Set In Stone Trilogy

As Kelly Jayne Jones’ recent work has show us, rocks and stones are ever-powerful inspirations for creation. This is especially the case when it comes to pounding techno and IDM, as Rommek’s Set In Stone Trilogy begins with Igneous, kicking off with a dense malevolent drone before t...view item »

Michal Turtle feat. HOVE
Middle of the Road Less Travelled

Ossia
Dub Hell / Devil's Dance

Limited edition of 250 copies ten-inch plate from Young Echo crew member and Bristol/Berlin DJ/producer Ossia. His mutant strain of technoid dub isn’t concerned with the usual fare of chasing vampires, rather Ossia embraces the darkness and plummets us down into the fiery bowels of hell to prance with demons and toke with the evil cloven-h...view item »

John T. Gast
BTEC Version #1

Limited white label action from the enigmatic John T. Gast (Planet Mu, Blackest Ever Black, 5 Gate Temple, Apron Records etc.) with a pair of cuts apparently recorded in 2013. They’ve been maturing nicely on whatever hard drive they’ve been lurking on for the past five years… Up top, the superb ‘Angela’ is ...view item »

Bastion
Bastion

Reissues may be all the rage these days, but there are still plenty of bygone eras/territories/genres that are yet to have their archives ransacked. The music of the former Yugoslavia would be one of those areas very much due a good going-over. The people behind ACC Records - born from Resonance FM’s A Colder Consc...view item »

Anne-James Chaton & Andy Moor
Tout Ce Que Je Sais

What can you say about an album that heavily features spoken word in a language you don’t speak? ‘Tout Ce Que Je Sais’ (All That I Know) is the latest album from Anne-James Chaton & Andy Moor and it is mostly conducted in French, a language I haven’t even attempted to learn since I was 13.

Gang Gang Dance
Kazuashita

Seven years is a very long time isn’t it? Seven years ago I was still at school with friends who were really into Gang Gang Dance. I’ve never followed the band so these seven years haven’t been filled with a single thought about what Gang Gang Dance were up to, but now, as I listen to this ...view item »

The Fires of Ork

The Fires Of Ork is a collaboration between great ambient talent Biosphere and synth-explorer (and Klaus Schulze collaborator) Pete Namlook. Their two albums were released in 1993 and 2000, but you can get all of that material in one convenient package here on this two disc CD r...view item »

Beach Skulls
Las Dunas

Dream pop. Psych pop. Grunge revivalism. Whatever you want to call it, Mancunian group Beach Skulls most certainly are it. Las Dunas is the band’s sophomore LP, and it sees them sticking to the template that made 2016 debut Slow Grind a minor hit. The song on it entitled ‘That’s Not Me’ ...view item »

Ray Barbee
Tiara For Computer

The Tiara For Computer, the latest LP from Ray Barbee, we find the skater, photographer and most importantly (for our purposes) musician playing around with synths.

Kamasi Washington
Heaven and Earth

With reference to everyone moaning about the football being on over summer ...what about those of us who don't like saxophones? There are at least two and a half hours of music here.. much of which contains saxophone. Add this to all the other sax music out there and it's starting to become a problem even leaving the house. Sadly our sax...view item »

LIFE
Grown Up

It had to happen sometime. We’ve entered the era which we could call post-Slaves, but we’ll more charitably call post-Sleaford Mods. LIFE - who have an album called Popular Music, but neither of these songs are on it - do a sprightly sort of Sex Pistols-with...view item »

Princess Nokia
A Girl Cried Red

Phil likes this. I think his pre-teen stepdaughter must have been playing it. No she likes PIL so he's obviously hitting yet another mid-life crisis.  To review it though means I'm breaching my 'no autotune' policy... something that seems to baffle the younger elements in our office. You see, hearing autotune on my records hits a particular...view item »

Having heard this and enjoyed the serene state of mind it left me in, I thought I’d wait for the absolute right moment and headspace to write about it.

Protomartyr
Consolation EP

It's not happening.  As Protomartyr get more and more popular and receive more praise from you our valued customers I keep hoping that their music will click with me but it just doesn't. After liking a small portion of their previous 'Relatives In Descent' I'm back in square one with this EP. As always my issues are with the derivat...view item »

Stella Donnelly
Thrush Metal

No wonder Matador spent good time re-issuing Liz Phair's 'Exit in Guyville' recently as there seems to be a direct lineage between that album and the current wave of singer songwriters who purvey a similar acoustic melancholy with no holds barred lyrical dexterity.  Perhaps the best of the lot is Ste...view item »

Half Man Half Biscuit
No-one cares about your creative hub so get your fuckin’ hedge cut

It was the laugh out loud moment of 2018 so far when the title of the new Half Man Half Biscuit album was announced. It would actually have been fine to just leave it at that....surely nothing they can do musically can really top it.  We know the score by now.

Nine Inch Nails
Bad Witch

Tonight at the Roadhouse, it’s the 22.85 Centimetre Nails! And it sounds indeed as if the association with Twin Peaks has rather rubbed off on potty-mouthed T. Reznor & Pals.

John Renbourn
Live In Kyoto 1978

John Renbourn passed away a couple of years ago, but his contribution to the folk revival of the 60s and 70s means his memory should live on a fair while. LPs like Live In Kyoto 1978 will help, too.

Bon Voyage
