Landing
Bells In New Towns

Landing have been at it for twenty years but 'Bells in New Towns' proves that they are still as strong as ever. They play a textured form of post rock, motorik kraut and blissed out shoegaze that is lush and shimmering bringing to mind other long running US outfits such as Yo La Tengo and Bardo Pond...view item »

Vive la Void
Vive la Void

Sometimes an album and your audience seem so destined to be with each other that writing a review about it feels pointless. I’ll be straight with you, I’ve been working here long enough to know that if you’re one of our customers, odds are, you’ll like Vive la Void. How can I be so sure? Well for one, this is the side pro...view item »

Green Seagull
Scarlet Fever

We were listening to this in the office yesterday (at my request I have to admit) and to be honest it was doing my head in. The band have all the right influences to ensure that it's something my ears might enjoy but the execution of it leaves something to be desired.  They are blatantly in the thrall to the whimsy of the late '60s&...view item »

Eleanor Friedberger
Rebound

I'm the only one obviously. Well that's fine...you are all welcome to Eleanor Friedberger's solo albums as to me none of them do anything near to what she achieved with her deranged brother Matthew in the Fiery Furnaces. Where that band was musically daring, her solo work is so conservative to be soporifi...view item »

Turkish Ladies

An awesome and very special record courtesy of Sony Music Turkey and Ladies on Records, celebrating Turkish women singers from the 70s and 80s. You'll hear a gloriously diverse range of music here, with sweet melodies, eccentric synths and bewitching arabesque strings underpinning classical Türk Sanat, Argentinian tango, Spanish flamenco, E...view item »

Erasure
World Beyond

The legendary synth pop duo had their seventeenth album released last year on Mute. This surprising and intriguing set of reinterpretations features a Belgian ensemble linked to several modern classical outfits and composers. What you get is Erasure's classic ethereal dance-pop done up in graceful orchestral timbres. Lovely....view item »

Iceage
Beyondless

I’m looking at these song titles and I’m just applauding their quintessence. How Iceage is a song titled “The Day the Music Dies”, placing them cynical and prescient beyond their years? How classic is “Plead the Fifth” for a band who’s basically trying to make sense of their dreams for a co-headlined tou...view item »

J Dilla
Ruff Draft (Dilla's Mix)

Just when one gets to thinking that the annals of J Dilla’s discography couldn’t be combed any more, we get another posthumous release from the MPC grandmaster. This one’s a souped-up re-rendering of his cult classic Ruff Draft EP from back in 2003. It features new mixes of the original track list as w...view item »

The Breeders
Last Splash

The Breeders first album since the departure of Tanya Donnelly who left to form Belly, opens with the slow, plodding, grungy riff of “New Year” then the song begins to rock, getting us ready for the next track - the mega indie disco floor-filling masterpiece that is “Cannonball” which is without doubt their best song.

La Luz
Floating Features

Fuzz pop daydreamers La Luz do their quartet rock for a month down the line with more sun (we hope) than this one. Floating Features sees them churn out some of their most lyrically aspirational work yet, doubling down on the hooks and harmonies that make them so good. Will most likely rule....view item »

The Hug
Patio

This limited-edition, self-released record from The Hug is a 12-track extravaganza, sweeping effortlessly from beautiful melodia to hypnotic instrumentation. Synths, drum machines, loop pedals, field recordings and tape machines make up the building blocks of this beautiful album. Utterly worth the listen. ...view item »

David Ross
Stochastic Moods

David Ross picks up where Iannis Xenakis left off in the exciting world of stochastically-generated music, using chaos mathematics to chart unpredictable sounds. Stochastic Moods creates probing digital sound-spaces out of oscillators and filters, with thoroughly abstract results. LP from Cusp Editions....view item »

Miki Yui
Mills

Warm field recording clutter for broken droners. Miki Yui's newest record for Cusp Editions sounds beautiful through and through, recalling the shuttering architecture of records by Danny Clay. Using clanging, metallic sound sources and odd strands of half-baked rhythm, Yui creates an inviting, Sunday ...view item »

Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois
Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois

Well I would never have put them two together but it is definitely the former U2 and Bob Dylan producer collabing with breakcore nutcase Aaron Funk of Venetian Snares. Both are, though, Canadian and those lads stick together. Funk did the drums whilst Lanois added pedal steel and weaved the unli...view item »

Tess Roby
Beacon

Huh. This… is exceptional. Tess Roby is releasing a fascinating record that exists like the synth-pop version of a classic novel about windswept countryside. Using the sparse make-up of ker keyboards and percussion, plus overwhelmingly slick guitar from brother Eliot Roby, she evokes the kind of quiet, isolated bewilderment you feel when ...view item »

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
Abstractions

Synthesizer music should be at odds with nature. They are machines, they are inherently not part of it. And there’s a lot to explore in doubling down on that, in exploiting their machine-ness, their proximity to industry. But there’s something quite magical about musicians who are capable of subverting that. ...view item »

Portico Quartet
Untitled (AITAOA #2)

London's Portico Quartet, here with 'Untitled, Art in the Age of Automation #2', weave together jazz, electronica, ambient and minimalism in an addictive sound that journeys through textures, acoustic arrangements and grooving, widescreen minimalism. A hard-hitting record that's well worth the listen....view item »

Belong
October Language

Back in 2006, New Orleans’ Belong released their debut album ‘October Language’. Though well received at the time, it deserves so much more. Then it was compared to the shoegaze greats, a much deserved comparison, but I think the spirit of ‘October Language’ has more in common with the bittersweet heft of ...view item »

The Band From Beyond

From Beyond trace their supernatural origin back to Houston, Texas.

In the spirit of her excellent second name I’m taking a risk here and listening to ‘I See You Among the Stars’ on the office stereo.
