Vatican Shadow / Cut Hands
Azar Swan Variations

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 20th May 2015

Some of you might recognise these lads, one of which cast his Vatican Shadow all over Function last year for a dark, punishing LP while the other can’t get enough of his Afro Noise, whatever that is. I’m assuming Saharan field recordings. The 2 tracks contained here are obfuscated reworks of com…view full details.

Wume
Maintain

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Rather than dizzying with considered production, Baltimore duo Wume strip back to the tried and tested synth ‘n’ drum combo, garnering obligatory Kraftwerk-related comparisons. Yes, the synth sounds that Albert Schatz makes sound kinda cute and kooky (is kitsch the word?) and April Camlin’s drums…view full details.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

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

8/10 according to our Hayley on 21st May 2015

Prolific Californian noisemakers Thee Oh Sees are back and thankfully sounding louder than ever: 2014’s ‘Drop’ was a comparatively mellow and varied offering following John Dwyer’s move from San Francisco to LA and his intention to take a “well deserved break”, making fans wonder if the days of heavy psych and…view full details.

Doomsquad
Pageantry Suite

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Robin doesn’t know what dancing is so he gave me this. For a squad of doom, they’re actually quite fun, making energetic, hazily produced dance-pop that might make Robin’s feet tap if it’s good. Already the word ‘tropical’ has been slapped on it, a word which has become synonymous with ‘tropical indie po…view full details.

Summer Camp
Bad Love (single)

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

5/10 according to our Clinton on 21st May 2015

I'll give you a clue. Look at the title...particularly pay attention to the first word. It desperately, desperately wants to be MGMT's 'Time to Pretend' but has no idea how to do it so settles for a squiggly synth pattern and some gloopy keyboards and hopes for the best. Positives? It's still by far the best thing on the album.  They have a…view full details.

The Fall
Sub-Lingual Tablet

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 8th May 2015

The Fall are increasingly beginning to resemble that eccentric elderly relative that you visit from time to time - you are amused by their oddities, glad they are still around but you wouldn’t want to spend too much time in their company. There hasn’t been a great Fall album in quite a few years now though I saw them play a s…view full details.

Limited 7" on Croque Macadam. Edition of 300 copies. Here are two ‘60s inspired psychedelic, garage rock numbers from Os Noctambulos with Outsider. Expect some fuzzy organ along with some woozy guitar and some vocals which sound as if they’ve been lifted from a 13th Floor Elevators track. Both of the tracks on Outsider were made in one raw afternoon in Toulouse and will only featur…view full details.

Submerse
Stay Home

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

LP on Project: Mooncircle. Some classic ‘90s style R&B vibes coming from this LP from Submerse which melts smooth guitar and silky synths but with some solid beats with echo the urban environment which inspired Stay Home. In line with other groups such as Silk Rhodes, Submerse has made a sultry collection of tunes which mines the ‘90s but stays new. A soundtrack for lounging on…view full details.

Devo
Miracle Witness Hour (Live In Ohio 1977)

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

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

'Neutron Dream' Coloured vinyl LP on Futurismo in deluxe reversible die-cut sleeve. New Wave's finest dressed band -- get back to me on that one -- settled down in 1977 to play a hushed and fairly private show at The Eagle Street Saloon, a gloriously derelict band worthy of the band's affectations. 'Miracle Witness' is Devo early on, with barely a fan or record to their name. Can you help them figure this music thing out?…view full details.

Luke Abbott
Music For A Flat Landscape (Original soundtrack to The Goob)

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

7/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

The Goob, from what I can get from imdb, is a gritty coming of age tale about a young lad and his mum’s new bloke and complications. ‘Goob’ is the name of the main character, the silliness of the word at odds with the pensive, restrained synthworks that Border Community mainstay Luke Abbott has laid underneath, playing at your …view full details.

7" on Fat Possum. The very first EP from Yak, a young London crew making songs out of organ, yelping, and energy-frenzy.

12" EP on RVNG Intl.. ‘Nite-Glo’ is the latest release from Stellar OM Source, the musical brainchild of French born electro producer and visual artist Christelle Gauldi.

Holly Herndon
Platform

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

9/10 according to our Jim on 13th May 2015

Holly Herndon has generated a considerable buzz since she released ‘Movement’ on RVNG intl. in 2012. Her music seems to straddle progressive electronica, contemporary pop and avant garde composition; all bundled together with a hefty conceptual dose of technological evangelism. Describing ‘Platform’ is her ‘paradisi…view full details.

Reissue LP on Wiiija. Le Tigre were a political pop trio led by chief Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin). Their eponymous debut was originally released in 1999 and is now reissued on vinyl. The fusion of politically charged feminism and angry pop has made this a classic.

Behold ‘Multi-Love’, wherein Unknown Mortal Orchestra get out of the psych pop game and take up a nice suburban retirement listening to Prince; wherein they forget the high-minded art practices and sing La La La La, La La La La, because it feels good; wherein their studio sounds like an open-air funk fair…view full details.

For a lot of y’all, this quartet is something of a dream team: he of noise wizardry, Merzbow, pumped up from harshing up the grindcore of Full of Hell, comes back to twist things into place and make good on his dissonant typecasting with friend Mats Gustafsson (who recentl…view full details.

LP on Burger Records. The third (obviously) release of Allie Hanlon’s bubblegum pop solo project. Peach Keli Pop’s sound is damn lovely to be quite honest, sounding just exactly like you want it to, where 50’s aesthetics meet with punk drive. Hanlon plays all instruments and writes all songs: great work! On Burger Records.…view full details.

Weird Owl
Interstellar Skeletal

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 21st May 2015

Chillest of the chillers, Weird Owl sparkle psychedelic synths like a fog over lazily strummed chords of the chillwave kingdom, creating a record that sounds bold but irresistibly relaxed. If you’re wondering if there’s anything else to talk about, there’s not, since most of the drumbeats sound as dynamic as the ones by whoever…view full details.

LP on Transgressive. This album is the debut full-length of Becoming Real, a Glasgow-based producer turning out simmeringly bass-loaded tracks that dabble in grime / post-grime.

Just a couple of weeks ago I was waxing lyrical about a collaborative release by Mark Fell and Gábor Lázár; praising them for liberating their mercurial rhythms from the gridlocked template that has driven so much minimal techno into the mire.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Steve Gunn and Mr. Hiss of the Golden Messengers had joined the Strokes, on the basis of that album artwork; in reality, though, they’ve teamed up to weave a terse strand of psychedelia into a rather pretty folk sound that just comes naturally.
