Knife Knights
1 Time Mirage

Given that the pair of Shabazz Palaces LPs that dropped in 2017 really stank out the place, it’s probably a good thing that Ishmael Butler has found a new project to focus on. Here he teams up with Erik Blood - who, among other things, was engineer for SP’s Lese Majesty - fo...view item »

Blitzen Trapper
Furr (Deluxe Edition)

Blitzen Trapper’s Furr gets a tenth-anniversary reissue. Over the years, this LP has come to be considered one of the signature Sub Pop releases - quite a feat when you consider the competition. Dropping at a time when The Shins were still accepted as a good band and freak-folk wa...view item »

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeat...view item »

The horror film Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicholas “Not the bees” Cage, was the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s final film score commission.

Well this compilation was commissioned by the Ha’achim restaurant in Tel Aviv: whether or not that means that these bangers are going to be accompanying diners evening meals I don’t know, but it means this LP is fully grounded in the place it documents. Ten tracks from Jaffa in the 1970’s, absolutely bristling with life-force a...view item »

Mask are a pretty nifty label. So far the imprint, which appears to have surfaced from Germany, has dropped three records by nameless artists.
