Matthew Atkins
Geometric Decay

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

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

‘Geometric Decay’ a seven track sonic collage of found sounds, field recordings and drones from Matthew Atkins. It’s a full bodied album whose textures teeter at the edge of noise in places. This is offset with almost meditative passages with snatches of repeated melodies and looped textural blocks, taking the original sound sources and placing them into new and unexpected contexts. Fans of Zoviet France, Fransisco Lopez and

Michael Head and The Strands
The Magical World of The Strands

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

Reissue CD on Megaphone. Michael Head and The Strands produced The Magical World Of The Strands during the early 90s, first releasing the collection of work-in-progress material in 1997. Everybody loved it, so now it returns, on CD or 180g gatefold LP on Megaphone. Brand new liner notes from Mr Head himself round out the package.…view full details.

Fabio Orsi
Endless Autumn

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

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

CD on Backwards. Fabio Orsi’s new album Endless Autumn can be seen as a sort-of sequel to Fennesz’s Endless Summer: despite being by a different artist altogether, the record melds acoustic and electronic sound sources / processes together to map a very personal representation of place. Released by the Backwards label.…view full details.

Platform
Folded Horizon EP

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

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

Platform’s new EP, ‘Folded Horizon’, a beat driven suite of six tracks of experimental electronic. Each track has a unique atmosphere and together, they work to make a cohesive whole. From proto-junglist rumblings, Aphexy techno, scattershot drum programming and maths related vocal samples, this EP is bit of a treasure trove of contemporary electronics.

Limited indies only deluxe 4CD + DVD + 2LP box set on Golden Chariot including large format book. 2003 was a bit before the vinyl craze we find ourselves in which will explain this reissue of British Sea Power’s debut LP from 2003, The Decline of British Sea Power  - some classic, footstompin' indie rock with solid guitar hooks and catchy choruses. Here we have a vinyl LP reissue, a 2CD issu…view full details.

The Declining Winter
Home For Lost Souls

48 people love me. Be the 49th...

9/10 according to our Robin on 17th July 2015

On his latest record, ‘Home For Lost Souls’, Richard Adams receives a snowflake on a plate of caviar and says “no thank you very much”. So begins the saddest album ever made. The ex-Hood and current Memory Drawings guitar cyborg …view full details.

10000 Russos
10000 Russos

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 22nd July 2015

I’ve got psych rock fever, in so far as I have hay fever and I’m listening to psych rock. The psych in question is the work of 10000 Russos, a Portuguese crew of smoke ‘n’ mirrors rockers who keep themselves at an echoing, lo-fi distance as their riffs circle the drain and drone into the sewers. The hay fever is mainly ju…view full details.

Gurgles
Gurglefirst?

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 21st July 2015

This was produced by Hookworms' MJ at his Suburban Home (you can tell immediately by the amount of slapback echo on the vocals), but whereas Hookworms play one chord, Gurgles play a million. Opener ‘You’re Madder Than Me’ sets its stall out to update the kind of complex proggy pop that te…view full details.

Seven Davis Jnr
Universes

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

8/10 according to our Andy on 22nd July 2015

Seven Davis Jnr made quite an impact on Ninja Tune with the barnstorming 12" 'Wild Hearts' - pretty bold to then leave that off the album as it is a real killer tune. Having remixed Four Tet and of course being picked up by Ninja he has demonstrated some pedigree - you don't get those gigs by being a chancer, howev…view full details.

Umchunga
Should Have Been Done By Now

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st July 2015

The latest from Hibernate has arrived, and it’s from a relative newcomer to the world of released music, Tehran’s Umchunga aka Nima Pourkarimi. No guesses as to what it sounds like - the Hibernate lot really meant every word of their Bandcamp mission statement. Not a lot of labels can say that. Well done. Should Have Been…view full details.

C Duncan
Architect

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

9/10 according to our Clinton on 14th July 2015

Hurling it’s hat into the ring for the coveted feel good summer pop album of 2015 is this lovely drifty album from Glaswegian Chris Duncan also known as C. Duncan. The time he's saved in coming up with a decent band name has been used wisely in creating a gorgeous textured record. The opening glut of songs are all fantastic. &lsquo…view full details.

Hannah Peel
Rebox 2

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

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

CD on My Own Pleasure. Rebox is the title that Hannah Peel gives to her series of cover EPs, in which her voice and a small hand-cranked music box are the primary instruments. John Grant, Perfume Genius, East India Youth and Wild Beasts provide the songs covered on Rebox 2, the set rounded out by a few original instrumentals. On My Own Pleasu…view full details.

John Foxx
20th Century: The Noise

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

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

Compilation CD on Metamatic. John Foxx has been in the game since the seventies, when he was a founding member of Ultravox. Then he went solo, which is where this rather grandly-titled compilation 20th Century: The Noise picks up. Seventeen tracks from throughout his career, including some rarities and some of his collaborations with Louis Gordon. On Metamatic.…view full details.

Imandra Lake
Vood EP

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 17th July 2015

This is a CD containing a single version of Imandra Lake man Rein Fuks’ ‘Kaks Vood’ and a megaremix extravaganza - a whopping 6 of them including versions from Bill Wells and The Declining Winter. The original kicks things off, and is basically the soun…view full details.

Stefan Wesolowski
Kompleta

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 14th July 2015

Initially composed for performance in 2006, Stefan Wesolowski’s ‘Kompleta’ showed off a young composer in the throes of a neo-classical awakening. Looking at the record’s cover is perhaps the most fitting explanation of Wesolowski’s infatuation: a church littered with scaffolding rising high into its ceiling, sugges…view full details.

FIS
The Blue Quicksand is Going Now

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 10th July 2015

This is a review of an album called the Blue Quicksand is going now. I don’t know what that means, maybe because I only got up an hour ago and can’t think straight. It must be verbal music to your alert ears/eyes, and actual music to your ears. Out on the new, anonymous Loopy imprint. FIS is a man from New Zealand wh…view full details.

Merzbow
Wildwood

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 14th July 2015

As the rest of the Norman pantheon get generously lullabyed by Yo La Tengo’s new covers album, I am betrothed to the new Merzbow record. The ecstatic noisemaker is turning his gaze towards philanthropy with ‘Wildwood’; all proceeds raised by this torrentially dissonant record go to a bear trust…view full details.

Celer
How could you believe me when I said I loved you when you know I've been a liar all my life

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 15th July 2015

Out of all the ambient types that littered our stock room with limited edition CD releases a few years ago, Celer were always the ones who could most easily evoke a mood of total calm. Now that there are fewer people making this kind of music, a release such as this long windedly titled record are much more welcome amongst the noise and debris o…view full details.

Gossamer
Automaton

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 8th July 2015

Gossamer is Evan Reiner, a relatively new artist who wears his heart on his sleeve through chill electronic chopscapes. Having only released a couple of EPs so far, his first full length has emerged from Innovative Leisure, a label that are storming the musical earth with releases from BadBadNotGood, …view full details.

Tame Impala
Currents

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

5/10 according to our Clinton on 13th July 2015

The main positive to come out of listening to this album is that I now finally believe that Kevin Parker is a human. His two previous albums as Tame Impala were incredibly produced psych opuses that referenced '60s pop/psych yet introduced modern day production touches that were light-years ahead of anyone else in the field. Not to get too …view full details.

Calexico / Iron and Wine
In The Reins

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

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

CD on Overcoat Recordings. A decade ago, the indie-sphere’s two favourite purveyors of folk-country-americana, Calexico and Iron & Wine, teamed up for In The Reigns, a half-hour collaborative EP. The harmonies that the singers collectively conjure up are marvelous, and the arrangements sound like a band who’ve known each other for years. Reissue on Overcoat Recordings.…view full details.

Emily Hall
Folie a Deux

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 15th July 2015

Composer Emily Hall has created a melodrama for two characters on ‘Folie A Deux’, melding together wiry electronics with strings both suspended and accentuated. If you’re wondering if it sounds like ‘Vulnicurna’ on that description -- and maybe because Bjork collaborator Sjon is involved …view full details.

Four Tet (Fourtet)
Morning / Evening

17 people love me. Be the 18th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 9th July 2015

Kieron Hebden stretches himself past the average album/single/album format to create a record which comprises of two episodic tracks containing various shifts in mood. 'Morning' is most notable for a seemingly never ending sample of Bollywood star Lata Mangeshkar. It's a lovely sample but after its thousandth repeat you start to wonder whet…view full details.

2CD on Ex Records. Legendary Dutch punkers/rockers The Ex have played quite a few shows at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. Over the 24 years the band has existed, the venue was a recurrent theme.

Deluxe digipak 2CD reissue on Dirter. Sylvie And Babs is an old Nurse With Wound favourite, reportedly recorded With Titillating Orchestrations By someone named Murray Fontana, although I wouldn’t believe a word these guys tell you, to be honest. Here the record is reissued as a double CD, boosted with rare and unreleased material and a 12 page booklet.…view full details.

3CD set on Fire. Highly regarded long-form psych-rock group Bardo Pond turned their talents towards some total underground classics for Record Store Day 2014, and here the three discs are collected together in a box.

Remastered 2CD on Biophon Records inc. previously unreleased tracks. Not only does this release present the full debut release of the Biosphere project, but it also contains a whole CD / LP’s worth of previously unreleased material! Sweet. But the rest of Microgravity still warrants purchase, still standing as firm ambient house classic. All remastered, double CD or triple LP, on Biophon Records.…view full details.
