Domiziano Maselli
Ashes

One of the most compelling things music can do is tell a story, and it's a story you'll find among Domiziano Maselli's Ashes. Noise and static gives way to throbbing bass which is joined by momentous drums. It's difficult not to imagine a journey when listening to this. And like any good journey, the j...view item »

Kanye West
ye

The shy and retiring Kanye West drops the eighth LP of what, to this point, has been a relatively uneventful career. By Yeezy’s standards, ye is short and sweet. Seven tunes, about twenty-five minutes in length, and only a couple of guests. Barely more than an EP really. But the thing about this Kanye fella is whe...view item »

Lee Fraser
Cor Unvers

The brilliantly curated Ge-stell label (home to Dalglish/Scald Rougish, NYZ, Tom Knapp, CoH, Sote, Christophe Charles + Kozo Inada and Brandon Nickell) goes from strength to strength... This Lee Fraser CD has proper caved my head in. He’s clearly taken his time with this album - his previous/debut disc was released on Entr'acte som...view item »

Pram
Across The Meridian

Long-time coming, this one. After over a decade away, the ninth LP from Brummie oddballs Pram arrives via Domino. The groundwork for Across The Meridian was laid at sessions in Wales, and there is a thick seam of Welsh psychedelia that runs through the music here. Other obvious touchstones come from the...view item »

Kelley Stoltz
Natural Causes

Natural Causes is the new album by Detroit native, ‘60s obsessive, former record store employee and prolific songwriter, Kelley Stoltz. The press release is trying to tell us that this sounds like a cross between The Teardrop Explodes and The Kinks. It’s perfectly plausible given Sto...view item »

Liars

Rayland Baxter
Wide Awake

Rayland Baxter, a man with a first name I can scarcely believe in, seems to be pulling a Bon Iver on this album, which grew out of a period of seclusion spent in an old rubber band factory. Fifty songs written, of which ten made it onto this here finished album, produced by Butch Walker. Soulful...view item »

Blacklab
Under The Strawberry Moon

Winners of my favourite album art for the year, please say hello to Blacklab, an Osaka local band who make barely decipherable evil.

The lo-fi production and noisy carelessness that sums up ...view item »

Public Image Limited
The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols. Over recent years people seem to have realised that, yes, PIL were pretty innovative. To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio session...view item »

NYZ
CSR SHAPERZ

More unique man/machine mayhem from NYZ aka David Burraston, whose release schedule is admirably relentless at the moment.

Cowboy Junkies

It now seems a lifetime ago that the Cowboy Junkies released the Trinity Sessions.

Tim Hecker
Haunt Me, Haunt Me Do It Again

This guy's well good as I'm sure you well know. This was his debut album, released almost a decade ago, and in the time since its release the number of people trying to straddle the boundary between ambience and noise has grown to fairly insane levels. Nonetheless, even amidst the currently hyperoversaturated market, there's always time for Timm...view item »

RP Boo

It’s amazing to think that RP Boo has never had a prominent release of wholly original material prior to I'll Tell You What!. The last two LPs from the footwork originator, Legacy and Fingers, Bank Pads And Foot Prints, were largely archival releases. I’ll Tell You What! finds the ...view item »

Wolf Eyes

American experimentalists Wolf Eyes add a distinctly Detroit twist to electronics, dub and punk. The band are one-of-a-kind but count Suicide and Cabaret Voltaire among their inspirations.

Pariah
Here From Where We Are

Pariah makes his long-awaited return with his even-longer-awaited debut LP. The reason that the one born Arthur Cayzer has taken so long to drop Here From Where We Are is down to the fact that, after getting a little jaded by music, he took time to rediscover the sounds that really made him tick. As such, this record is...view item »

Body/Head
The Switch

Free noise rock duo Body/Head are Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten) and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange). They bring together numerous oxymoronic terms: dark/light, black/white, emotion/analysis. Hence, the name of the band 'Body/Head'. Not necessarily oxymoronic, but you get the idea. The Switch is their second full-length stud...view item »

The National
Boxer: Live In Brussels

Well, it's Boxer by the National, but live.

'Mirages' is one of ambient musician and noise thrill-seeker Tim Hecker's earliest works, originally released in 2004.
