Motorama
Poverty

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

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

CD on Talitres. If you’ve heard enough UK and American variations on the Joy Division post-punk sound, why not try a Russian version? Motorama are just that, though I don’t mean to disparage the the quality of their approach. Poverty is their third album, and the fact that Talitres are spreading this beyond Russia points towards an exciting future.…view full details.

Dennis Young (Liquid Liquid)
Reel To Real

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

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

CD on Staubgold. An archive collection of rare and unreleased solo recordings from Dennis Young. Known as the percussionist for Liquid Liquid, this set of sixteen tracks compiles his out of band experiments between '82-83. There’s a homely feel to the recordings, thanks perhaps to Young recording them at home. Just a guess. It's understandably heavy on the drums. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Staubgold.…view full details.

Jarboe and Helen Money
S/T

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

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

CD on Aurora Borealis. Jarboe, formerly the eerie female side of Swans, teams up with Helen Money, the go-to avant-cellist of the out-rock underground. Truly, an exciting combo. Certainly this self-titled debut is heavy: Money’s distorted strings are often enormous. But Jarboe has a powerful way of cutting through noise with her eerie presence… On…view full details.

Christopher Hipgrave
No Greater Hero Than The Least Plant That Grows

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

7/10 according to our Laurie on 26th February 2015

Ah, here’s the Home Normal lot back to business. Super minimal driftwood ambiance to accompany anorak magazine reading, scented candle bathtime or romps on the moors. I jest, but you could probably do all of those things comfortably to this music, but I’m sure Mr. Hipgrave wouldn’t be too happy about such pigeonholing. Well, th…view full details.

9/10 according to our Laurie on 26th February 2015

Ah, the ol’ conceptual synth record. Never before has the line between pretentious gear flauntery and textural interest been so easy to misstep. You’ve got sounds from the 70s that were so caught up in the new medium that they forgot to write great music, and modern records that fetishise just that. But there are some who aren’…view full details.

Vessels
Dilate

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 26th February 2015

It shouldn’t take anything away from Vessels brand of electronic post rock that they’d have surely been one of the best bands of 2005. They create a music that was at one point everywhere but is rarely spotted now - namely complicated, mathy, electronica with live drums. It’s very well executed  - the beats are tight, the …view full details.

Juxta Phona

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 26th February 2015

One of the two latest instalments of Home Normal’s bag in a bag in a bag packaging series is a little, heh, abnormal for them. It is almost as if Jason Corder, the man behind the Juxta Phona and Off The Sky masks, is speaking for all of the interested beat-driven ambient artists when he proclaims that …view full details.

If only people would write their names properly on album sleeves. Firstly it’s not written at all on the front and on the rear it looks something like Clarence Carthy.What chance does anyone walking into Woolworths have?

It’s not often I’m impressed but in deciding what on earth we could review this week I chanced upon the opening track of this album by Sydney duo Au.Ra which is immediately ear friendly. It’s kind of like the House of Love covering PIL’s ‘Public Image Lim…view full details.

Ever wanted to put down the computer and do something less boring instead? Well Palmbomen guy Kai Hugo decided to swap the  screen for using old school hardware and locked himself in his mothers attic for the entirety of the summer to make this, his second album.

The Limbic System

8/10 according to our Laurie on 25th February 2015

As far as cerebral electronic music goes, you can’t get more cerebral than a record about different parts of the brain. The limbic system is the collection of neural pathways and regions of the brain that govern emotion, memory and behaviour, and those are exactly the brain parts that are being massaged right now. Ok, most music will garne…view full details.

Bruno Sanfilippo
Inside Life

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 25th February 2015

Not wept in a while? Then try this LP by Argentinian neo-classical composer Bruno Sanfilippo. The second track here ‘Freezing Point’ could melt men with steel hearts. A piano flutters in and out of the mix as if being caught on a breeze, the cello is used in a sparing but devastating fashion, appearing in the mix at just the right mo…view full details.

Cyclobe
Wounded Galaxies Tap at the Window

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

9/10 according to our Ant on 21st July 2011

Seasoned Coil fanatics will no doubt be familiar with the names Ossian Brown and Stephen Thrower who were early collaboraters with Balance and Sleazy. Cyclobe also did an album with Nurse With Wound which I think is the last thing they (Cyclobe) released. This sounds like it would eat me up, at home, late at night, evoking an alternate unive…view full details.

7/10 according to our Hayley on 29th January 2015

I’ve been told that I have the music taste of a balding, middle aged Melody Maker journalist, but I was barely a year old when The Wolfhounds last released an LP, Attitude, in 1990, and apart from their stand-out appearance on the C86 cassette and a couple of singles here and there, I’ve never really given the band that much…view full details.

Ghostpoet
Shedding Skin

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

9/10 according to our Clinton on 25th February 2015

Ghostpoet certainly starts like an express train on his third album. Opener ‘Off Peak Dreams’ is a skittering, soulful effort driven by pounding drums, sparse piano notes and a funk ladled synth. It’s like he’s woken up and realised that he’s spent two albums making underground hip hop with esoteric appeal but has n…view full details.

With a suitcase of weird metaphors (“waiting like a tomato on the market”, anyone?) and a few thousand instruments equipped to various parts of his body, David Ivar reincarnates as Black Yaya, a new project with more bluster (and more electro-pop!) than the anti-folk Herman Dune.

*** FINALLY IN ON 180 GRAM DMM VINYL!!*** The other album I'm most fond of is the Max Richter lp on Fat Cat subsidiary 130701 Records. He's some composer chappie who's had stuff out on BBC Recordings before so I'm told and this is just lush. Mainly consisting of pianos and strin…view full details.

Here’s an idea: bring together the best of Wu-Tang’s alums with a jazz collective famed for their overpowering live prowess. BADBADNOTGOOD are not exactly working within the trends of hip-hop right now, which is favouring a free-for-all sampling approach that has resulted in some of the most creative wor…view full details.

You kind of have to do a double take on the opening ‘Babymaking’ on this, the best album so far from Manchester art rockers Dutch Uncles. It sounds unfathomably like Kate Bush.

Planet Mu seems to have morphed into a very far-reaching stable these days.
