Holger Czukay
On The Way To The Peak Of Normal

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 6th December 2013

This is a reissue of the third album by Can’s Holger Czukay. A quick google search reveals to me that he was the one with the moustache. It isn’t exactly a lavish package, but if you are lucky there will be a record included and thats the main thing. It comprises of two lengthy pieces that marry electronics …view full details.

CD on Wichita. Katie Crutchfield started out in the wordy punk band P.S. Eliot, where she played with her sister Alison (now of Swearin' fame).

7/10 according to our Clinton on 31st March 2015

“A little bit more glossy” was the NME’s understated take on this second album from electronic wonderkid East India Youth. I’d say a LOT more glossy ...at times David Guetto glossy. As glossy as a glossy print from Superprints. The album opens with ‘The Juddering’, an intro really  - just some squelshy sy…view full details.

CD on Thrill Jockey in mini-LP style gatefold package . Loopy beauty from French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott a.k.a Colleen. Playing the baroque instrument, treble viola da gamba, and singing in a folky whisper, she brings to mind the loop-based works of Robert Fripp or more recently Dustin Wong but with a stronger leaning towards songcraft.

Friendly ghosts Wand released their last effort on Ty Segall’s God? and did what they were supposed to: swirling around the place in a hi-def psych tornado, they proved themselves to be a worthy band leaning on the heavier side of the garage rock spectrum.

Although I like surprises, sometimes it's nice for things to be exactly as you expect them. There must have been a band called The Tamborines before  - there simply has to have been.

After a day of packing devastating God’s Pee records into little anxious boxes, Houndstooth are quite reassuringly not harbinging the apocalypse. It’s the least they could do, and I thank them for that: ‘No News From Home’ is astonishingly nice, a listen that echoes the quiet, homegrown dramas of …view full details.

CD on Damaged Goods. The rather deceptively named Severed Limb are a lot more fun than they might have you think at face value. If You Ain't Living You're A Dead Man is a bit of punk skiffle nonsense, its raw sound evoking the dingiest pubs and most makeshift of performances.

CD on Anti. It’s folk-punk time. What a great crossover. William Elliott Whitmore gives us some gravelly voiced, thumping guitar blues. Radium Death is proper storytelling to a fast beat which requires a few stomping hillbillies, a couple of barrels of something strong and a few tyres for the kids to play with.

The number III printed on the front of their new record like three identical towers, Föllakzoid betray their love of symmetry, their ability to take spaced out, kraut-leaning rock music and park it perfectly. They’ve already proved themselves to be aficionados of the slow, repetitive build, using little more than ominous guitar tones,…view full details.

Godspeed have always spoken through others. Our favourite anonymous band, their rise has been charted through phonies opening our eyes, nostalgics waxing lyrical, helicopter crews circling in; the nameless of North America, trying to stake their claim on it.
