Kostis Kilymis

A fresh new Tapeworm, plucked from the ground. And what does it contain? Why, two sides of exciting materials from Kostis Kilymis of course! The work presented here is grown out of a Stockholm live performance and some sweetly detailed field recordings, all t...view item »

Ensemble 0
Ensemble 0 Plays Eight Compositions and It Lasts 38:36

Can’t fault them for clarity and accuracy. Ensemble 0 Plays Eight Compositions and It Lasts 38:36 delivers on each of the promises of its title, and the individual tracks follow the same format. This contemporary group dev...view item »

Cara Stacey & Camilo Ángeles
Ceder

Cara Stacey (South Africa) and Camilo Ángeles (Peru) bashed this one out in a day, and it’s quite a trip. Both artists performed multiple instruments, but Stacey largely favours piano and Ángeles various flutes. With a great sense of freedom, the material goes all over: opener ‘Jazmin&r...view item »

The Library Music Film - Music From And Inspired By The Film

The Library Music Film is a documentary about that most intriguing and tantalising area of obscure music creation and collection. Library Music was only ever meant to sit in the background, but the sheer weird quality of so much of it has given it enough prominence f...view item »

Oneohtrix Point Never
Returnal

Peter Rehberg's ever 'on the money' Editions Mego label prove once again that the man has his ears to the underground with his latest score of signings.

Michel Banabila
VoizNoiz

Two decades since it was first released, Michel Banabila's VoizNoiz is now available on vinyl. This is an incredibly playful album, pitching itself at the more listenable end of plunderphonics. It veers from hip-hop to jungle to jazz while always maintaining a core identity that is as silly as it is pr...view item »

Bruce Springsteen

J.O.S
Ultra

I'd probably have a word with my record label is they sent out a press release saying I fondled synths, but then I'm not J.Ö.S. aka Johan Öhman Sollin. On Ultra, the Swede channels the boring bleakness of Scandinavian winters into sci-fi soundtrack style compositions that bring to mind...view item »

Ultrafog
How Those Fires Burned That Are No Longer

Kouhei Fukuzumi has released a couple of cassettes for Japanese label Solitude Solutions and Spain's Angoisse imprint and now makes his vinyl debut as Utlrafog on Los Angeles' excellent Motion Ward label -- their previous release was an ace from uon (West Mineral Ltd.)

New Order & Joy Division
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

It’s never before been possible to study the trajectory of post-punk pioneers Joy Division and synth-rock sequel New Order in one sitting. The technology simply hasn’t been there. You’d need some kind of ‘play list’ - what a notion. But now, thanks to...view item »

Posthuman
Mutant City Acid

For their first full-length in eight years the ever-reliable Posthuman pair freshen up their hard-hitting acid sound with a little injection of story. Spawned from the Balkan Vinyl EP series of the ...view item »

The Lucid Dream
Actualisation

The Lucid Dream put their bad luck (their gear was all stolen in Paris in 2017) firmly behind them with fourth album Actualisation, a record that could not have come to be without some great fan support. The album works some big acid house vibes into the group’s general big psychedelia, as well as some delightful ...view item »

Laurie Spiegel
The Expanding Universe

A very weird coincidence occurred a couple of months back that sorta freaked me out a little. I'd been recently listening to a compilation called ‘Women In Electronic Music’ and heard a track called ‘Appalachian Grove I’ by Laurie Spiegel. I had heard some of her music previously but not this track and so I dec...view item »

Khana Bierbood
Strangers From The Far East

Khana Bierbood are Thai band who came up with their blend ‘60s surf, ‘70s garage rock and traditional sounds after hours of jamming together. Their name, which translates into English as Strange Brew, gives further clues to their influences. The band have been together since 2012, but ...view item »

Mike Cooper
White Shadows In The South Seas

Mike Cooper has lived a long and interesting life, but the septuagenarian shows no signs of slowing by the evidence of this delightful collection of delightfully weird, restless concrete exotica which is massaging my ears as I type. It’s a difficult album to describe because it spans so many styles over ...view item »

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension. When not actually tipping over into angsty, swirling noise-pop, the songs often sit anxiously right on the edge, ready to go....view item »

The Saxophones
Songs of the Saxophones

The Saxophones started as the solo project of Alex Erenkov. He wanted to incorporate some basic percussion into his sound so recruited his wife, Alison Alderdice, which also meant he could take her on tour with him. As you can probably tell from the cover of Songs Of The Saxaphones, he’s quite fond of her. Their influences...view item »

Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam
Blackout Cowboy

Robert Pollard is referenced in the press release for the new album by Birmingham's Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam. They say it is because they’re comparing the band’s prolific nature to his, but I think the real reason is that the band have taken their name from a ye...view item »

Colorlist
Full Circle

Colourlist: Charles Rumback, Charles Gorzcynski, Brian Bullard and Matthew Gagnon. Four veterans of Chicago’s transgressive underground jazz scene. Here’s their fourth album, courtesy of dependably tasteful Welsh label Serein. The quartet’s interactions of woodwinds, drums and va...view item »

Amnesia Scanner
Another Life

They took their sweet time about it, but four years on from their breakout mixtape AS Live [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] Berlin-based duo Amnesia Scanner have delivered their debut LP. Another Life is, of course, a record as brilliant as it is difficult to pin down. The pair’s sound has always been a helt...view item »

Who would you rather spend time with in The Most Wonderful Time of the Year than Aidan Moffat?

Also contains th...view item »

Chromatics
Shadow

Re-press of Chromatics 2015 single Shadow. The track should appeal to anyone who enjoys Chromatics’ 80’s-synth-pop-remembered-through-a-nostalgic-haze sound. And if you do like Shadow, this is the release for you: it contains five different versions, plus extra track ‘White Li...view item »

Angelo De Augustine
Tomb

We absolutely loved Angelo De Augustine's Swim Inside the Moon LP here at the towers and so are exited to hear this follow up in which label boss and all round quiet genius  Sufjan Stevens guests. De Augustine's sound in fact isn't that far away from Steven's hushed balladry,lots of creaking acoustic guitars, quie...view item »

The Last of the Gracious Losers

More creativity from Glasgow which is surely one of the UK's most productive cities. I went to a dog disco there  - it was incredible.

DOG Power
DOG Power

Following a couple of singles, New Zealand duo DOG Power release their eponymous debut album. The duo are made up of Sam Perry, a singer songwriter with an indie pop slant, and Henry Nicol, an experimental musician.

The album comes with a disc of demos that band leader Dustin Payseur made when initially conceiving the album. The album’s themes are based on Payseur’s childhood in the southern sta...view item »

Beach Fossils
What A Pleasure

A lot has been made of Wild Nothing's ability to re-create the finest moments of 80's melancholic indie pop but from the sounds of this EP these guys take the biscuit (lollipop?). They have a clearer, less cluttered sound and the sparseness of the drum machine, melodic bass and dual jangling guitars are exquisite reminders of those particular da...view item »

Beach Fossils
Beach Fossils

More charming lo-fi indie pop, from Brooklyn this time. This act are another bunch specialising in laid-back alternative grooves, managing to stuff a ridiculous quantity of excellent numbers on their debut album. Something about this record reminds me strongly of Felt, a drum machine & deliciously intertwining chiming guitars with ghostly mu...view item »

Nurse With Wound
NWW Play Changez Les Blockeurs

To mark the 35th anniversary of The New Blockaders’ self-released debut album they asked Nurse With Wound to remake it, as Stephen Stapleton is a notorious fan, and who better to take on the experimental and abstract noise that it contained.

Mikael Tariverdiev
Seventeen Moments of Spring

Mikael Tariverdiev's score to the legendary (at least in ex-Soviet states) Seventeen Moments of Spring. Though Tariverdiev was initially reluctant to get involved, his soundtrack for the 12 part series would become one of the most iconic in the history of Russian filmmaking. The show follows a Soviet s...view item »

Transmaniacon feat. Lydia Lunch and Maya Berlin
The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet

Transmaniacon take their name from a Blue Oyster Cult song and describe themselves as 21st century schizoid people of the blue planet, which references a King Crimson song. It’s clear to see their prog influences, however, the music they make is a heavier br...view item »

My Name Is Ian
The Point Of No Return

We have an Ian here in the office and on occasion he is heard saying 'My Name Is Ian' but he has nothing to do with these alt/garage mavericks who also say their name is Ian. They veer across disco, punk, lo-fi and garage rock which, weirdly, our Ian does as well sometimes. Comes on what is described as a lucky dip mash of coloured vinyl.  ...view item »

Michael Hoenig
The Blob (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Although it’s essentially about an animate piece of strawberry jam, the 1958 original gave me quite the nightmares as a child. Here’s the soundtrack to the even-creepier 1988 remake of The Blob by Michael Hoenig. Hoenig went for something a little more sober than the original’s bouncy theme song, whose...view item »

The Beta Band
Hot Shots II

The Beta Band release their new LP and you'll be pleased to know it's considerably better than the last LP. Though it's not as good as the 3 EP's it's still got some great tracks on it. And lo and behold it sounds like The Beta Band although maybe slightly mellower. Was unsure about this on the ...view item »

Spectral Empire
Iron Muscle

Iron Muscle by Spectral Empire comes across like a lost soundtrack to a dystopian sci-fi movie from the ‘80s. Dark, spooky synths interlaced with demonic electronic stabs and dramatic, tension-building beats. The duo are made up of George Thompson from Black Merlin and Kyle Martin from Vactrol Park. 180g vinyl 12” EP...view item »
