Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!Yellow coloured vinyl LP on Lost Map
New album from highly-respected ambient electronic maestro Biosphere, his first in 5 years. Departed Glories has the gorgeously cloudy haze of Biosphere’s best work, but imbued with distant fragments of old Eastern European / Russian folk music recordings, inspired by the cover image. The effect is similar to some of The Caretaker…view full details.
Please enjoy these bizarre DIY television adventures, courtesy of Luke Wyatt / Torn Hawk. Blowback takes 9/11 as a starting point and then goes into all kinds of bizarre territory. I can’t really explain it to you, and probably neither could the makers. Wild stuff! This DVD features the first 2 episodes of the first series of Blowback.…view full details.

An absolutely essential purchase for any fans of BBC Radiophonic Orchestra/early day synth, this very rare soundtrack created in 1972 by legendary composer Delia Derbyshire (along with artist Elsa Stansfield) finally gets a re-issue on the ever inquisitive Trunk records. They came up with a mix of sound design, tape manipulation and natural environmental sounds for Anthony Roland's 1972 film about the slides of radical stills photographer Pamela Bone. …view full details.
9/10 according to Martin hewett (customer) on
This is a beautiful record. I was tempted to give it 10/10 but very few albums ever made deserve that mark. I think with this record its best to just listen to it without any preconceptions. Her voice is distinctive and its folk of sorts but that alone doesn't tell the story. I never write reviews of music online and my day to day is listening to music for work. This album has woven itself into my ear on a daily basis since I got it. Just listen to it more than once...despite that being a cli…view full details.
Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!Eternal classic remastered 2LP + poster on Get On Down
Dark, primitive and aggressive punk music from really really shouty men who live on the west coast of Norway where we hope there is enough distance between houses to save their neighbours from bleeding ears. They really are an aggressive bunch. Punk/metal at it's most nihilistic. Get your ears prepared for a battering. …view full details.
8/10 according to our Clinton
This sounds interesting. Certainly much more interesting than the endless wailing man solos that pass for music in the office this morning. It's a collection of cut and chopped Japanese pop music with a delightfully trilly style and lots of micro cuts. On 'At the Window' (with Cuushe) this is very similar to the sounds of Mum, a delightfull…view full details.

It's Zomby. His music is very good -- there hasn't been a full LP since the vignette masterpiece With Love but here's Ultra, a record that promises knockout collaborations with artists including HKE, Rezzett and dubstep whisperer Burial. Crystal-clear productions, no doubt.…view full details.
Who would have thought that in 2016 we'd be seeing a new Silver Apples album and that it would be produced by Graham Sutton (Bark Psychosis etc). But this is the information we have been presented with so we must go with that. Silver Apples surviving member Simeon Coxe (now 97) has recorded all this at his place in Alabama and it has been scrubbed by Sutton in London. I'm not sure what we can expect at this late stage. Their two '60s albums were truly groundb…view full details.
Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals. "Some things just don't change" sings David Gedge on 'Bear' and he's still wittering on about break ups and relationships and stuff like that but there's nothing here that…view full details.
Modern banjo excursions and new folklore are two of Nathon Bowles favourite things, though there's much more to the guy: his official focus is drumming, and his previous record saw him make dark ambient for pianos and sing over abrasive country tunes. Whole & Cloven is yet another example of his music's breadth, a gorgeously woven narrative piece with longform instruments to rival Basho and simple, mantra-filled tunes for listeners to gather a…view full details.

Look, I don't know what the music sounds like yet, but that's easily the greatest album cover of the century. The conversely awfully named Goblin Cock is the pseudonym of soft Pinback feelings guy Rob Crow. He likes to make heavy metal sometimes, going after a different kind of catharsis with maximum m/. You may well ask: does Necronomidonkeykongimicon rock or does it rock? It will probably rock and rock, a…view full details.
Oh go on, get excited about a new Eluvium record. It's been a while since Matthew Cooper framed his ambient-leaning post-rock in such a compelling light -- in fact False Readings On seems to intertwine his pastoral, widescreen sound with a harsher resolution, with the orchestration battling tape hiss, unruly distortion and forlorn vocalisations. This one's a gorgeous opera, broken into tiny pieces.…view full details.

Khompa is but one man: Davide Compagnoni, of Stearica. This is indeed The Shape Of Drums to come: the drums are wired up to an array of triggers and electronics, so that Compagnoni can play whole songs from behind his kit. The results (recorded live!) are heavy and math-rocky but also bright and …view full details.

This is officially being labeled as a Reggae album. Karma No Kusari by Kiki Hitomi could however fit into a myriad of genre - is it sweet candy pop, with songs such as Pink No Kimono having a sickly-sweet feeling. How about psychedelic pop, especially prevalent in the title track which is a distorted collection of sound. Check this one out and decide for yourself. …view full details.

"Ten tracks. Ten locations. Ten field recordings. One piano". So begins the press release as if previewing some BBC proms experiment. But it neatly sums up what this LP is all about. French composing maestro Tiersen has written pieces for ten locations and made field recordings of the actual places then later on dubbed his piano twinklings atop. Could this be a return to his 'Amerie' style sounds? We wait with bated breath. …view full details.
Authentic home-crafted DIY weird-pop from Instant Automatons. Clicking drum machines and lo-fi guitars support and/or undermine the band’s sweet songs with strange little touches. Sincerely Making A Noise hoovers up various tracks from rare cassettes and EPs, pressing them up to vinyl in an edition of 300. On the Burka For Everybody label.…view full details.

Yeah Yeah Industrial are a pair of noisy improvisers playing around with the kind of warm cosmic fuzz beloved of outfits like Yellow Swans or My Cat Is An Alien. Pseudodoxia Epidemica Parts 1-3 shows what they can do in 2 short bursts (the 7”) and 1 rather long sprawl (the CD, filled with a single 74 minute track). Edition of 200, with insert and confetti accompaniment.…view full details.
The Bigo & Twigetti label invited their artists to give them something on the simple theme of Summer, and here are the results. The sequencing of this 8 track compilation takes the listener from the unadorned acoustic instruments of artists like Aisha Orazbayeva and her violin to Antonymes’ electronics. Only 50 copies of this CD in circulation!…view full details.
JOOVE broadcast from Tel Aviv, where Aviad Zinemnas and Yuval Shenhar construct their own personal take on electro-pop songwriting. How To Let Things Go’s 5 tracks have some deep echo, some dramatically wearied vocals, and snatches of folk musics alongside the keyboards and electronics. 12” release on the InchPerSecond label.…view full details.
2814 are in the business of shimmering electronic ambience, operating with a distinctly dreamy aesthetic. Rain Temple could be the soundtrack to an area of Metroid Prime, or an animation about future Tokyo. It is released, suitably enough, on the Dream Catalogue label, as a very attractive double LP set of transparent vinyl.…view full details.

Shima33 rolls deep with the Dream Catalogue label, releasing with them since their beginning. Release is his most major work to date, a 15 track suite of abstract ambient electronics that shimmer and float through outer / inner space territories.

The sounds of LILLITH双生 are about as digitally-corrupted as the artist and album name appears to be. (SEASON_0) Hazard Garden is a neon-coloured splash of stuttering samples and glitches over a muted silvery synth-drone landscape. Sounds for anxious computers.

This is the Oasis album where the songs started getting uncontrollably long and slightly psychedelic; it's also the album one of the Gallagher brothers really hates, though I can't remember which one. In this Normanites opinion it might be their best work, a lush, nicely arranged record of ever-optimistic, wilfully meandering pop music. Sounds like they were trying to be Harrison but ended up on McCartney's wavelength instead. Reissue with a lot of "rare" Oasis…view full details.
