Earthly
Days

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

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

LP on Noumenal Loom. Earthly are an energetic duo of former roommates, who get stuck into piles of digital and analogue electronics without too much concern as to the neatness of the outcome. At times this is like Black Dice playing around with the pallette of Hudson Mohawke: bright, colourful, and a bit fucked up. Days is released on Noumenal Loom.…view full details.

Dokken
Dream Warriors (Theme From A Nightmare On Elm Street 3)

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

Limited coloured vinyl 7" on One Way Static. Nightmare On Elm Street 3 made a strong impact with a generation’s worth of horror fans, and they’ll no doubt be happy to relive the fear with Dokken’s title theme, now available as a nicely coloured 7 on the One Way Static label. Total RAWK wildness, no doubt at all that this was made in 1987. Backed with ‘Into The Fire’.…view full details.

7" on Because Music. Shake & Tremble is the new single by Django Django. The London based art rockers are favourites of 6 Music’s Mark Riley.

Limited 180g translucent BLUE vinyl LP pressing on Friday Music, housed in posh tri-fold sleeve. David Bowie reissue time! Heathen was his 2002 release and his 22nd album. He throws in a couple of covers to this one, including a nice version of Pixies ‘Cactus’. Heathen is understood to be one of the better late-period Bowie albums. The reissue is, of course on hea…view full details.

LP on Fiction / Loma Vista. Everyone’s favourite LA noise-rock (with a dance-pop sensibility) group HEALTH make a return to album releases, after what feels like an extremely long time. Death Magic continues the band’s harsh-but-shiny journey; from the sounds of single New Coke, things will be even more party-friendly than before. Exciting. On Fiction / Loma Vista.…view full details.

Blondes
Persuasion

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

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

12" on RVNG Intl.. Blondes kick in with a new, triple-track EP: Persuasion, on RVNG International. Electronic club adventures, improvised out of gear they know inside-out. That live, fresh feel really energises the techno they come up with, and takes it into some surprising territory. A very dynamic set of tracks, pressed to 12” vinyl.…view full details.

Pit Ponies
Magnificent Second Occupation

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

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

LP on Trashmouth Records. Pit Ponies, as the name signifies, identify strongly with an English working class tradition, and they carry this through with their direct, soul tinged music. Magnificent Second Occupation certainly kicks back against working class marginalisation, but it has a definite joy to it too. Released by Trashmouth Records.…view full details.

Chuck Cirino
Not Of This Earth

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

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

Opaque yellow/ transparent milky clear vinyl LP on Graveface, in tip-on gatefold sleeve. Not Of This Earth was an alien-tastic 1988 film that blended science fiction with doses of horror, starring Traci Lords. With all those elements in place, you can just imagine the kinds of tunes soundtrack composer Chuck Cirino came up with. Very generous doses of 80’s production and a frantic synth-sensibil…view full details.

Teen Daze
Morning World

LP on Paper Bag. Teen Daze is the solo project of one Jamison, who has allowed some collaborators into the Teen Daze world for the first time on Morning World.

LP on Polydor. Positive Songs For Negative People is album number six from singer/songwriter Frank Turner. Once again he is backed by his trusty sidekicks The Sleeping Souls.

2LP on Death Waltz Originals inc. Blanck Mass, Roll The Dice, Helm, Moongangs, C Spencer Yeh, Phil Julian, Konx Om Pax. Ben Blanck Mass Powers has been given the enviable task of compiling a soundtrack for a Giallo tribute film, The Strange Colour Of Your Body’s Tears.

The Machismo's
Brit Pop Fucked My Wife

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 3rd August 2015

Ah, the Machismo’s. Silly, lazy, barely writing songs, this married duo plus extra friend create what is best described as flimsy jangle pop. Their tunes are snappy and suffer happily from lo-fi production; often they struggle to keep up with tempo requirements. If you listen to ‘Brit Pop Fucked My Wife’ and wonder why it sound…view full details.

Wand
Machine Man / M.E.

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

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

Limited 7" on In The Red. Machine Man / M.E. is the new single from Wand. Flying high after the critical success of the Golem LP, this 7” features two new tracks. Machine Man is a classic slice of Wand which is akin to the dark sounds found on Golem. M.E. is a cover of the Tubeway Army song. It has been transformed into a weighty, riff-tastic masterpiece.…view full details.

Karen Gwyer
Bouloman

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 24th July 2015

Traversing the outer boundaries of techno once again is our fave Karen Gwyer and her cluster of technological massage. The machine grooves on Bouloman are set to drift and hypnotise you with her now-perfected contrast between the thump-squelch of acidic drum lines and deeply moving synth washes, which vary in subtlety from a hint (&lsqu…view full details.

Snow In Mexico
Juno Beach

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

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

LP on Saint Marie. Edition of 250 copies. Renowned for their deep mixes, Italian producers Snow in Mexico are showcasing their compositional qualities once again. On their third release Juno Beaches, the two are displaying the near infinite possibilities of the Roland Juno synthesizer. This release is limited to 250 pressings, so don't sleep on it!…view full details.

The Maccabees
Marks To Prove It

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

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

DARK BLUE coloured vinyl LP on Fiction. Marks To Prove It is the fourth album produced by indie rock group The Maccabees, following a three year gap. All the hallmarks are still in place though, don’t worry: omnipresent guitars and choruses that are probably anthemic or something. The deluxe edition comes with a film the band made about Elephant & Castle, and the vinyl is available as a limited edition dark …view full details.

Bookworms
Bookworms

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

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

12" on L.I.E.S.. Bookworms is a bouncy techno project hailing from New York. I always enjoy it when techno, which has a tendency to be somewhat strict in adherence to the 4/4 (no bad thing by the way) is deviated somewhat, and Bookworms excels at this, subtly changing up tempos and playing around with rhythms. Lots of fun this 12”! On L.I.E.S.…view full details.

I’lls
Can I Go With You To Go Back To My Country

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

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

12" on Solitaire Records. Releasing EPs in the same leisurely tempo as the tracks they make, Australians Ill's have captured a tiny little bit of our hearts. Their newest release Can I Go With You To Go Back To My Country sees ethereal vocals interlacing with padded synthesized soundscapes, deep beats and guitars that sound like they come from far away.…view full details.

The The
Hyena

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 29th July 2015

Gotta love the level of spook here. As with most Death Waltz OSTs, I’ve never seen Hyena, but it sounds dark ‘n’ uneasy as you’d expect. On this one, The The is main man Matt Johnson doing it all solo, building atmospheres of criminal suspense to reflect the main character’s descent. Johnson’s usu…view full details.

Michael Head and The Strands
The Magical World of The Strands

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

10/10 according to our Clinton on 29th July 2015

It’s the moment I’ve been waiting for for months. A record so brilliant that I’m already preparing perfect conditions for myself pre-listen. I’m fed, I’m watered, I'm toileted and I’m sat in a comfortable position at my keyboard. Let’s go. So Michael Head has some history. He was in parping Liver…view full details.

1st press edition of 1000 copies! Expanded 180g vinyl gatefold 2LP on Silva Screen. Wowzers, total power team up here from film soundtrack-synth wizards John Carpenter and Alan Howarth. This is a reissue of their classic accompaniment to Escape From New York, present here in expanded form: the first time this version has been pressed to vinyl. Double LP remastered from the original tapes (naturally), …view full details.

Moon Pool & Dead Band
MEQ

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

7/10 according to our Laurie on 29th July 2015

With the Death Waltz-esque cover, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is another dusted-off soundtrack to an adventure film where a man hunts cybermoths on a planet full of foliage rooms. Nope, that’s all image, but the music on MEQ is reminiscent of such things - after coming off a review of Escape from New York, it’s an …view full details.

The Myrrors / Cult Of Dom Keller
Fuzz Club 10" Split Single No. 7

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 29th July 2015

If you are reading this please feedback it. It’s The Fuzz Club, friends, back to spoil us for the seventh time with another one of those slightly smaller inched but no less waxy records. This one brings together the culprits of much slow-roasting psych rock, the Myrrors, with the extremely fussy and uncompromisingly experimental Cult of Do…view full details.

Samantha Crain
Under Branch & Thorn & Tree

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th July 2015

Unless there was a recording studio under that branch, thorn and tree, I contest this record’s pastoral chops. Samantha Crain has made a fine record, here, but it’s not the sparse folk story you might expect, involving instead a great deal of enigmatic production and electronic supplementing. Though Crain has her guitar and voice to …view full details.

Mike Cooper
Fratello Mare

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

6/10 according to our Jim on 13th July 2015

There was a time when every self-respecting hipster would have an extensive ‘Hawaiian guitar’ section in their record collection. I’m talking about the 1950’s here, when the islands of the South Pacific and Caribbean fired (cold) war-weary Western imaginations with the exotic allure of non-work, untainted paradisaical coa…view full details.

Danny Elfman
Nightbreed

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

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

180g “DECKER” colored vinyl LP (Burlap Mask with Blood Clot Splatter). On Waxwork in heavyweight tip-on gatefold sleeve. Danny Elfman is veteran of many a film soundtrack, and it is easy to see why. Nightbreed showcases the man’s very strong talents, perfectly suiting the dramatic horror of Clive Barker’s film. This reissue is pressed to vinyl with the colour scheme “Burlap Mask with Blood Clot S…view full details.

Alessandro Cortini
Risveglio

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 23rd July 2015

After an uninspired attempt at making some dank slow techno, Alessandro Cortini, one of the Nine Inch Nails, brings melody back to the forefront for this CD on Vatican Shadow‘s Hospital Productions. On Risveglio, Cortini uses minimal synth layers to…view full details.

Long Distance Poison
Human Program

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th July 2015

Sometimes you’ve gotta make it look like you’re doing something in a hurry. ‘Human Program’ is a busily scheduled slice of music in which a suspended ambient backdrop is filled with effects, synth extrapolations and pounding drums made on modulars. The blissful drone that predicates this album sounds nice, but Long Distan…view full details.

William Basinski
The Deluge

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th July 2015

Tape looper to the stars William Basinski has been stripping away excess concept from his work since the rise of ‘The Disintegration Loops’, composing pieces that are important more for the sounds they make than for their process or history. ‘The Deluge’, however, finds him back with the stories: this record is thematical…view full details.

Jon Collin
Early Music

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 30th July 2015

I’m a 'pop' man at heart so I find it hard to write about records like this. The opening track is basically Collin picking away at a guitar like you’d pick at a scab. It’s very enjoyable but I’m finding that when he gets really excited and the needles start pushing into the red, it gets a bit intense for early on a Thursd…view full details.

Ghedalia Tazartes
La Bar Mitzvah du chien

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

6/10 according to our Clinton on 30th July 2015

Look at the sleeve. It's a naked, bearded man on all fours. Ghedalia Tazartes is a 'legendary' name in the European experimental community. The sort of man whose recently re-issued records had our former scribe Mike dishing out 9/10s as if they were confetti. I find it hard to critically assess music like this so I'll simply describe it …view full details.

Aisha Devi
Conscious C*nt

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 29th July 2015

Here we have a 12” of electronic wonderment, complete with an aggressively alliterative title. Hide this one away from yer kids, Mr. Cameron. In short, this record is amazing. Aisha Devi has created a whirling melancholic semi-techno noisescape featuring bold synthwork, raspy beats and spaced-out samples. The opener ‘Kim &…view full details.

12" on Diagonal. Computer punks Evol have a new 12” and it’s called Flapper That. One 20 minute piece of music over two sides of vinyl. Side one messes with waveform (and your head) in an hypnotic way, gradually changing speed and pitch. Side two adds drone and rave to the mix. Evol’s music has been a great influence on the Diagonal label since its inception.…view full details.

Limited self-released 7". Edition of 300 copies. The Machismo’s have decided to take on some old tunes with new recordings on this here Fake Live EP: make of that title what you will. Four of their scraggly, messy guitar tunes, including two tracks prefaced ‘Machisimo’s pay tribute to 90’s uk jungle scene’. Excellent.

7" on Gram Gram. 7” on Gram Gram. Telegram are a band in it’s youth, 18 months old and Aeons is their second single on 7”. The title tracks is a speedy spacey krautrock affair, whilst the B-side has their take on Brian Eno’s Needles In The Camel’s Eye.

Eleventh Dream Day
Works For Tomorrow

LP on Thrill Jockey. Eleventh Dream Day have been going hard at it since the 1980s, indie rocking onwards into the horizon. Works For Tomorrow grew out of a live residency in a small Chicago club, and it shows: sweat and audience energy is clearly the environment these songs dwell in. The album is out as LP or CD with Thrill Jockey.…view full details.

Aurora
Running With The Wolves

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

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

10" EP on Decca. Aurora makes synth-pop that sounds pretty damn accomplished considering that this is her debut EP (or indeed that she is only 18). Given that she hails from Scandinavia, I’m hesitant to compare her to Robyn for fear of cliche, but that’s what my ears are telling me. Running With The Wolves is a 10” released on Decca.…view full details.

Bjork
Vulnicura

28 people love me. Be the 29th...

10/10 according to our Robin on 12th March 2015

‘Vulnicura’ is so unconditionally painful. It is above and beyond the call of duty of any sad singer-songwriter album. It is a full consumption of heartbreak; an analysis of how to struggle with it, a treatise in feeling it, and an exhibition of the physical sound it makes. That’s a lot for one record to cover, but her…view full details.

12" on Deep Medi Musik. A new EP of riddim explosions from Jack Sparrow here. He takes Hold And Pull as the perfect excuse to ramp things up to high energy levels on two of the three tracks here, ragga MC samples guiding the journey. Then the third number dubs things out a little. 12” LP out on the Deep Medi Musik label.…view full details.

LP on Idle Hands. O$VMV$M is the latest spawn from the always-worthwhile Young Echo collective: specifically, this is Neek and Amos Childs. The self-titled EP they present to us here is an eclectic audio trip through some unusual spaces, all squeezed through the strictures of soundsystem culture.

Galactic Nightmare

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

Limited gatefold 2LP on Trunk. Edition of 500 copies. Man alive, this is something. A dude called Alan Jefferson decided one day in the 1970s that he wanted to make a musical space epic, and so he did, using whatever equipment he had to hand. Galactic Nightmare is the astonishing result, sounding like little else. This is the first proper release the 86-minute magnum opus has had, all thanks to Trunk.…view full details.

All Tense Now Lax

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

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

Well, which is it? Tense or Lax? Judging by the impending percussion and escarpments of noise currently ushering my ears to an early grave, I’d say the former is where this resides. Southend-on-Sea must be a horrible place to live if it inspires these abrasive emotions, but thank you for being so shit and birthing this into the world. Now …view full details.

White vinyl LP on Your Old Droog. Your Old Droog established himself as an intriguing artist just last year, and he returns here with an overstuffed EP of cloud (or at least cloud-influenced) rap. Kinison continues to use foggy atmospherics and a plethora of samples to see YOD through. His affection for old school alt rock is once again on display, too.…view full details.

2LP on Kowloon Records. Florestano is an Italian producer who combines the modern-day vibing of the traveller with the electroacoustics of the mid-20th century. Most of the work on Noh is electronically produced, but Florestano reportedly begins each composition with a piano, so tune is as highly valued as texture. 2LP on Kowloon Records.…view full details.

‘Wishawaytoday’ is the type of title that could have been used by any shoegazy indie band between 1988 and 1992 before Britpop killed shoegaze with idiocy. But now it’s back back back, baby, and where are Oasis now? Yup. Aaaanyway, being really old, I’ve heard all this type of stuff before -- but it&rsquo…view full details.
