King Tuff
The Other

King Tuff is the guy who can’t quite stop himself from dabbling in psych rawk pomp due to his part in Ty Segall’s old backing band the Muggers, and, maybe, I don’t know, some other things. His new record, ‘The Other’, starts simply enough, but soon it’s decorated in bombast, a s...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Tonya Harding

Someone doesn't like Sufjan Stevens and it's a shame that it happens to be Tonya Harding who hates the song. Oh and the people who made the documentary about her who rejected it as part of the soundtrack. But it's ok, Sufjan. We still like you.   Strange format this. 7" makes sense but cassingle?

Neil Scrivin
Geek Upmanship

Records that are remastered are always fun. Whether you've heard the original or not, they're always worth a listen because they're obviously worth a remaster. If you know nothing about Neil Scrivin and Geek Unmanship expect an oddly satisfying mix of digital guitars and somewhat jazzy tones. Available on cassette tape ...view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

They’ve done it, then: Unknown Mortal Orchestra have found their gear and they’re staying in it for the rest of their existence. Having wowed and united our entire office with the most unlikely of things -- a funky ode to polyamorous living in sonic homage to Prince called ‘Multi-Love’ -- they here offer more of the same,...view item »
