Kostas Dousas: Greek Blues in America, Vol. 2

The second of two cassette volumes capturing 1920s and 30s examples of the Greek rebetiko music.

Super limited cassette on T...view item »

Soft Riot
The Outsider In The Mirrors

It's now ok to like Gary Numan but I remember a time when it wasn't.  Soft Riot is a project led by the mysterious JJD  - a man who has come to the conclusion that he has been put on earth to make a record that is as dark and serious as any Numan or  Fad Gadget...view item »

Yeah You‎
VHOD

You want father/daughter lo-fi noise pop on cassette? Well Yeah You have just the thing for you, yeah, you.

Sunset Graves
The Inevitable End

For his latest cassette The Inevitable End, Sunset Graves (UK electronic musician Andy Fosberry) deliberately limited his sound palette to synths, drums, samples and field recordings.

Kyle Craft
Full Circle Nightmare

It’s glam. I don’t know how exactly but it is: there’s a dude wearing a hat on the front cover and Kyle Craft has a fuzzed-up hair thing going on. He’s about to answer a phone. His suit, a kind of mustard-white, is captivating. There’s a table. There are cards. The scene is set: it’s rock music for the world&r...view item »

Hot Snakes
Suicide Invoice

Next, please say hello to Hot Snakes who number John Reis (Rocket from the Crypt/Drive By Jehu) and Rick Froberg (Drive by Jehu) amongst their ranks.

Ty Segall
Freedom's Goblin

Freedom’s Goblin, the new album from Ty Segall, is a biggie. 19 tracks that eek out every emotion from the listener on the way. This time out, Segall’s fuzz wraps itself around elements of r’n’b, synths, horns and harmonies, but is still very much Ty Segall...view item »
