Waxahatchee
Ivy Tripp

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

8/10 according to our Hayley on 14th April 2015

Alabama-raised singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield has come a long way since her debut 2012 LP ‘American Weekend’ and the subsequent ‘Cerulean Salt’: those two records defined Waxahatchee’s predilection for delicate melodies with a rugged grunge sensibility, and the lo-fi bedroom production style made her knack for …view full details.

Squarepusher
Damogen Furies

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

6/10 according to our Laurie on 16th April 2015

Britain’s most adept purveyor of pure intensity is still at it. Still battering your ears with hyperglitch drum-n-ba- sorry, I mean DRILL-n-bass, whatever that is. Age hasn’t exactly matured the man, but rather amplified his ability to control a multitude of independently freaking out layers. Damogen Furies finds Tom…view full details.

Triac
Days

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 15th April 2015

Line is a label that has surely become notorious in the world of electronic music for peddling stripped-back but strange digital sounds on a varying spectrum of listenability. But sure, being listenable isn’t always the goal, and sacrifices have to be made, for the good of mankind. Well, maybe just music, but music IS mankind right? (jesus…view full details.

Feverdreamt
Terban Te Ban

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 16th April 2015

How curious. What we find in Feverdreamt’s many layers is a singer-songwriter record, buried under a haze of nightmarish krautrock. Our protagonist starts off with a lo-fi tune of twinkling piano and distant vocals, like if Have a Nice Life were tasked with the drunkenly cooed don’t-leave-me-ism…view full details.

CD on Relapse. Zombi, a duo from Pittsburgh, were hugely influenced by the band Goblin who wrote the score for the original Dawn Of The Dead film. It was also where they got their name, the Italian release of the film being called Zombi. The Zombi Anthology features the multi layered looping of synth, bass and drums making sounds that sit somewhere between space rock and classic horror scores…view full details.

Sonic Youth
Bad Moon Rising

Reissue CD on Goofin' inc. 4 bonus tracks. Bad Moon Rising was only the second record for these presidents of noise rock, and saw a reverence for classic rock and all its idealism hit a brick wall of distortion an disdain. Sonic Youth made feedback the new pop music, and this record helped them on their way to that very reasoned idea: this is a piece of accessible dissonance.…view full details.

CD on Dirter. 'First Monster Last Monster Always Monster' is a labour of love project from sound artist and multi instrumentalist Andrew Liles. Claiming a deeply personal, emotional connection to the 1985 Sisters Of Mercy classic album ‘First And Last And Always’ as his motivation, Liles has reimagined this timeless masterpiece in the form of an instrumental electronic homage.…view full details.

Royal Albert Hall

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

6/10 according to our Robin on 15th April 2015

We hired Mark Everett to work for us once, but he added horns to everything. You’d open a record and there’d be a trumpet; we’d be listening to the new Prurient album and he’d say something like “needs more oboe” (maybe that’s true, actually). There was always a grand piano in our dishwasher, "just in ca…view full details.

Tangents Series #01: LiveGlasgow040414

7/10 according to our Jim on 13th April 2015

Glaswegian underground electronic label Broken20’s Tangents Series has been set up to release collaborative live performances. In Techno on the whole, the more open-ended, improvisatory approaches to sound creation are usually confined to the producers’ private studios; the fruits of their experiments carefully edited and processed f…view full details.

Bronnt Industries Kapital

8/10 according to our Clinton on 19th December 2014

How many times can you listen to a record before you get put off it forever? I’ve just listened to a track off the new Viet Cong album 6 times in a row. Better stop. This Bronnt Industries Kapital album was played by Kim in the office everyday for 2 weeks. At first we all loved the record but by the …view full details.

James Blackshaw
Summoning Suns

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

9/10 according to our Robin on 9th April 2015

I’m like Marge Simpson thinking she’s got Homer all figured out just as he delivers a bouquet of roses from the sky right now, in so far as I thought James Blackshaw was a master of instrumental American primitivism but now he’s singing sweetly over gorgeous, almost straightforward melodies. I don’t know where I …view full details.

The Leisure Society
The Fine Art Of Hanging On

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

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

The Leisure Society’s debut ‘The Sleeper’ was a fantastic album of folky lullabies that made me get a speck in my eye on several occasions.  Since then they’ve rather strayed too far into the Mumfords folk festival territory for me at times but still remain a worthy entity. The …view full details.

Michael Price
Entanglement

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 9th April 2015

While I absolutely hold his involvement in Sherlock against him, I can’t deny that Michael Price knows his way around a minimal tearjerker. Price’s brand of neo-classical has the same lack of pretense as Nils Frahm’s recent work ‘Solo’, the sound of an aficionado humming and hawing o…view full details.

CD on Home Normal. Fifto is one of those artists who apparently have zero interest in self-promotion, or even in  existing outside of their immediate locality. A minimal electronicisist from the Japanese town of Sapporo, Fifto has finally been persuaded to release his glitching melodic delvings into the world, thanks to Home Normal.

Drawing Virtual Gardens
Six Weeks Were Too Long To Wait

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 8th April 2015

An ode to time-stamped tension, David Gutman composed and recorded ‘Six Weeks Were Too Long To Wait’ in the build-up to his daughter’s birth, as well as the subsequent time waiting for her to be released from the hospital. It’s a sweet title, but what the music betrays is a feeling of unease, a pining for a loved one who …view full details.

Akira Kosemura
Trio

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 10th April 2015

There are two things in by Akira Kosemura this week. I chose ‘Trio’ as a) I used to like the biscuit of the same name and b) it does what it says on the tin which makes my job a hell of a lot easier. Indeed,  this is a record of the much loved Japanese pianist re-arranging some of his older work for a trio of piano, cello and vi…view full details.

Richard Neale
Deep Blue (part 1)

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 10th April 2015

Namedropping AFX, BoC, Sigur Ros and GY!BE is certainly a brave move. My cynical side says ‘crowdpleasing’, but ultimately intrigue wins over, especially since that Richard Neale seems to have come into electronica from a folk background, a fundamentally massive transition. It’s always interesting to hear what is retained. …view full details.

Big Blood
Double Days I

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 10th April 2015

Here is a thing. It is Big Blood’s diverse eight-year old album of genre checklists. At first, they sound like an ambient Hop Along -- singer-songwriters who would’ve done well as self-infuriated folk punks in another lifetime, but ultimately picked a life behind the fog with the synths, screaming and howling with their eight-year ol…view full details.

Embers

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

7/10 according to our Laurie on 10th April 2015

This is the soundtrack for a film which is extremely obscure. Online info is minimal, the imdb page is bare. But that might just be the most beautiful thing about Embers, you’ll probably never find the film outside of Japan, so the plot overview at asianwiki is just about the only…view full details.

4/10 according to our Clinton on 31st March 2015

A good question. A very good question indeed. At this moment in time the best thing Chaz Bundick could do would be to take a few years off and try to remember what it was that he did so well in the first place as he’s currently in the middle of a super-slump headlined ‘Diminishing Returns’. His first two albums were ful…view full details.

3CD on Sub Rosa. This is quite the anthology, and we’re happy to help you get in on it. A warning is at hand, however: this is not easy listening. Andre Stordeur was part of the avant-garde and used synthesizers before people even knew how they worked: you can listen to musical exploration become reality. The Complete Analog and Digital Electronic Music 1978-2000 features mostly tracks from 1978-80 as well as th…view full details.

2CD on Walk Tall Recordings. Helping heal middle aged couples everywhere, I Am Kloot's gentle folky musings are the perfect escape for the stressed 30 and 40 somethings. Their music finds it impossible to offend whilst has enough bottom-of-the-glass Guy Garvey-like ruminations to make you look into the eyes of the person with whom you procreated with less hatred than usual. Here they are playing live tracks from throughout their career. Betwee…view full details.

If stuck then think of Villagers as a kind of understated and less mawkish Bright Eyes. The world is a complex thing and we’ll always help you with a quick pigeon hole you know.

8 year anniversary CDr on Don't Trust The Ruin. Big Blood are a couple who also make music as a duo, sometimes joined by their daughter (aged 8 on this recording), Blood Stereo style. Musically, Double Days II follows on from part I: a sound that is enticingly stark, guitar, vocals and harmonium cloaked in not-always-readily-identifiable other sounds.

CD on Glacial Movements. There is ample reason Zastrugi is released on Glacial Movement Records. Sounding like an industrially produced blizzard, this is best called glacial techno. Filled with white noise, icy beats and cold synthesizer accompaniments, Netherworld’s LP is highly reminiscent of the arctic substations where we used to spend our childhood winters.…view full details.

Twelve years of releases and the only ones I've heard have been 'Herbstlaub' and 'Les Fleurs'. The fact that one of them was released a decade ago makes me feel rather old and confused. 'TEOS' is his latest in a grand discography and continues in the classic vein of deep lush ambient music his fans are no doubt quite content with now. That …view full details.

CD on Anti. It’s folk-punk time. What a great crossover. William Elliott Whitmore gives us some gravelly voiced, thumping guitar blues.

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.

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.
