Kuedo
Assertion Of A Surrounding Presence

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

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

LP on Knives. 'Assertion Of A Surrounding Prescence' marks the return of Jamie Teasdale aka Kuedo, the second release on his new label 'Knives' and his first new work in three years. Typical futuristic and detailed productions featuring collaborations with Roly Porter - his ex partner in Vex'd and Egyptrixx the 7 tracks demonstrate abstraction and emotion through the prism of electronic structures. The record also features stunn…view full details.

Luxury Apartments
Luxury Apartments

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

7/10 according to our Jim on 1st August 2015

Luxury Apartments was a solo project of David Tyack, the German born, Derbyshire raised Twisted Nerve prodigy who tragically died in 2002. Apparently these recordings were completed shortly before his untimely death, and show an all-embracing adventurousness in the scope and emotional range of the music, which ranges from brooding dark-ambience,…view full details.

The Lilac Time
Prussian Blue

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 4th August 2015

You know you can trust a country folk record if a man who used to be in Duran Duran and went on to write for Robbie Williams was involved in its making, and this record sees the now acoustic mainstay Stephen Duffy turn his project into a family affair: after releasing the eight-year icebreaker…view full details.

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

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 4th August 2015

Drawing on sad pop across many different dimensions, I’lls have been crafting songs of taut emotive force for a while now. The most impressive thing about their most recent release, the elusively titled ‘Can I Go Back With You To Go Back To My Country’, is its surprising fluidity; considering that they’re navigating …view full details.

Goat
It's Time For Fun

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 4th August 2015

I have deigned to review this record in a way that the elusive and apparently exceedingly mysterious Goat would see fit -- by virtue of a commune opinion. “Actually”, opines Phil, his mouth gaping at the record player’s frenzy of sounds, “they’re a lot less mysterious than they used to be”. He pauses, struck b…view full details.

Sun Ra
Jazz In Silhouette

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

Jazz in Silhouette, by Sun Ra and His Arkestra was recorded on March 6, 1959 and released in May of the same year. The album is considered to be one of Ra's best from his Chicago period before veering off into 'their full-fledged explorations into the avant-garde' that characterises their New York recordings of the 1960s..... ''Jazz in Silhouette stands as an overlooked masterpiece, a work that shows Ra not as a mere curiosity or backwater gal

Jessika Kenney
Atria

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

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

Limited LP on SIGE. Edition of 300 copies with hand-stamped labels + oversize booklet. Jessika Kenney is known for having worked with all manner of the avant-garde, but on the evidence of Atria, her debut solo album, she is an even better leader than she is a collaborator. Kenney’s vocals and viola meld with gamelan ensembles for a deeply atmospheric and satisfying whole. Wow. Limited to 300 cop…view full details.

Damon Bell
Blues for the Libyan

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

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

2LP on Deepblak. A lifetime of DJing has led Damon Bell to production work at last, and Blues For The Libyan is his debut full length album. Bell’s tracks are house at their core, but elements of other, more polyrhythmic forms carry them in all sorts of other directions. Including guest vocals from Afrikan Sciences and Khalil Anthony.…view full details.

Ashtray Navigations
A Shimmering Replica

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

9/10 according to our Jim on 22nd July 2015

Ash Nav’s psychoactive stream of cosmic consciousness flows unabated, hitting a sun-scorched plateau of ecstatic intensity that’s rare by even their standards for this latest LP on VHF. The record bristles into being with the phaser-fuzzed smears and ruminating electronic pulsations of ‘Cold Lemon Door & Side Table’ a…view full details.

Primitive Paradise: Early Exotica 1920-1947 is a fine compilation of material that may have been originally distributed with cynical motives in mind, but was clearly performed with a sincere pleasure. Early recordings from countries including Hawaii, Cuba and Puerto Rico, …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.

Titus Andronicus
The Most Lamentable Tragedy

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

6/10 according to our Robin on 4th August 2015

A couple of years ago, weary from the onslaught of criticism that met Titus Andronicus’ last, understated (but not very good) record ‘Local Business’, frontman Patrick Stickles joke-promised a record four LPs i…view full details.

Cocteau Twins
The Pink Opaque

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

Remastered 180g vinyl reissue, compilation LP on 4AD. A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes. The Pink Opaque compiled choice cuts from the group’s early work in order to break them to the American market in 1986, and the selection of material still stands up today. Pressed to 180g vinyl.…view full details.

Simon Love
It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time

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

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

180g vinyl LP on Fortuna POP! Edition of 500 copies. Simon Love used to make music with his band, The Loves, but now he loves alone. It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time is a homage to seventies-soft-rock-pop records, and consequently is slightly epic. Guests include DJ Emperor Rosko, A Little Orchestra and none other than Stewart Lee! On Fortuna Po…view full details.

Spatial
Emergence #1

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

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

180g white vinyl 12" on Infrasonics. Spatial kicks some real energy into the label he manages, Infrasonics, with this, the first in a series of Emergence 12”s. The two tracks here feel very tightly managed, synth lines jittering around beats that sound strictly disciplined yet also full of swing. Very interesting and dynamic stuff here, and pressed to 180g white vinyl too.…view full details.

Shabazz Palaces
Of Light

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

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

Reissue LP on Templar Label Group. They are big big deals now, but when the EP now compiled as Of Light was first released in 2009, Shabazz Palaces were all fresh and unknown, and suitably impressive. Here it is released again on vinyl by Templar Label Group, containing the genesis of the group’s jazzy and unusual hip-hop style.…view full details.

12" EP on Blackest Ever Black. Edition of 500 copies. ‘Fooling Around’ is the latest E.P release on Blackest Ever Black from spaced out modern garage rock band Rat Columns (David West).

Genius / GZA
Pro Tools

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

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

Blue coloured vinyl reissue 2LP on Babygrande. Pro Tools is a very uninspiring name for an album isn’t it? As far as I can tell it isn’t tied into any conceptual meaning, so…? Anyway, this album was GZA’s 2008 album, produced by a range of amazing producers (Black Milk, RZA, Arabian Knight and so on), and reissued on double blue vinyl here by …view full details.

Pridjevi

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

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

LP on Trouble In Mind. Pridjevi are a Croatian crew, formed of three songwriters who have audibly psychedelic interests. Sung entirely in Croatian (good thing too), this self-titled debut is a lovely whirling thing, hypnotising listeners with circular rhythms, acid rock guitars, and a haze of indefinable background sound. On Trouble In Mind.…view full details.

Beach Baby
No Mind No Money

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 4th August 2015

We were given a beach ball as an office gift today, so it seems more than appropriate that we listen to a shiny new 7” by Beach Baby. Making music in the overwhelmingly ubiquitous genre of jangly indie pop, you probably know enough about their sound already: with a voice as bright and assured as Ma…view full details.

Sightings
Amusers and Puzzlers

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

10/10 according to our Jim on 5th June 2015

I think I’m slowly moving from anger to the acceptance stage in the process of mourning the break-up of Sightings. Over the last fifteen years or so, Sightings have developed an utterly singular musical language that’s as weird and idiosyncratic as say the Magic Band, except rather than being a re…view full details.

Chelsea Wolfe
Abyss

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

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

2LP on Sargent House. Chelsea Wolfe uses her fifth album to plumb the depths of the subconscious, via the medium of music that alternates between her intimate, close mic-ed murmurs and crashing heavy rock action. There is a strong sense of purpose in Abyss’ brutal contrasts: Wolfe has made a very good record here. On Sargent House.…view full details.

LP on Joyful Noise. Built In Sun is a new project from drummer Joe Plummer (The Shins, Cold War Kids and Mister Heavenly). This self titled LP began life as an instrumental idea positioned somewhere between the work of soundtrack artists John Brion and Clint Mansell and the punk rock stylings of of The Wipers and John Reis, however, once the tracks were mixed, Plummer decided to invite some friends along to add vocals including Pall Jenkins (T…view full details.

LP on How Does It Feel To Be Loved?. Don’t let the name fool you; Haiku Salut are neither French nor Japanese. Instead, they hail from Derbyshire. The tracks they make on Etch and Etch Deep combine a big stack of sounds grabbed from sources electronic and acoustic, with results that are both strange and highly tuneful. On How Does It Feel To Be Loved?…view full details.

LP on DAIS. High-Functioning Flesh show us what happens when noisy punk meets with electronic / techno templates, and the results aren’t pretty. Which is a very good thing. Definite Structures is the second record these guys have turned out, and it sounds pretty frantic: this will inspire movement. Rad times on Dais.…view full details.

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

LP on Dais. Tor Lundvall’s new album The Park is called that for a reason: it is about a park, an attempt to evoke a park, and involving field recordings of parks too. Much ambience, moving through brighter and darker periods as does a real day in a park. LP on Dais, completing an informal place-based trilogy with the label.…view full details.

Sleaford Mods
Key Markets

9/10 according to our Robin on 16th July 2015

Well of course we like it. But let’s talk about it. Sleaford Mods have actually been making records for years now, like the prolific crossover between a crusty band doing 7” splits, a rapper throwing archives onto DatPiff and, you know, the Fall. They have a good half dozen full le…view full details.

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.

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.

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.
