Madlib
Pinata Beats

I’ll keep this snappy as ‘Pinata’ has already had the review treatment from our boy Mikey. Madlib needs no introduction, he’s the one and only, you know this.

R.E.M.
The Best Of R.E.M. At The BBC

You'll have to be a pretty big R.E.M fan to wade through the various sessions and live performances on the big bumper CD box set that accompanies this release.

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.

The Oscillation
Wasted Space

London psychedeliacs The Oscillation drop their second LP of the year on Fuzz Club (Lumerians, Sonic Jesus). Wasted Space is a record of slightly proggy space-rock jams that are powered by some cracking work from the rhythm section. The likes of ‘Drop&rs...view item »

The Underground Youth

Rare Austrian prog-providers Paternoster only ever released one album, but there is more to their story than that!

Blancmange
Wanderlust

It's a new album from the always forward-looking synth-pop duo Blancmange -- Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe.

Scars

Scars is the new 5 track EP from Au Revoir Simone member and Jenny Lewis collaborator, Erika Spring. It is her second solo release following on from her 2012 self-titled EP. If the title track is anything to go by, this EP eschews the electronic pop of Au Revoir Simone in favour...view item »

Confessin' The Blues - Compiled by The Rolling Stones

As everyone knows by now, all the best music was made between 50 and 100 years ago and humankind’s sonic capabilities have been in steady decline ever since. There’s no point even trying out anything that anyone under the age of 40 has either made or listened to, because it’s guaranteed to be garbage. Entitled little runts don&...view item »

Thresholder

Ian William Craig is always very welcome round these parts, and Thresholder, the man’s first album in eighteen months, demonstrates why. Those tape machines of his are put to work in the construction of an eleven-track, forty-minute sound environment. Deep and gorgeous smeared ambience, on FatCat sub-label 130701....view item »

Aldona Orłowska
Nie Wiem

Preposterous polskalo-disco/Euro-house from singer and champion swimmer Aldona Orłowska and husband Eugeniusz. The title track is an irresistible vintage party tune without the faintest respect for keeping in time. It’s followed by a sleazy, scatty lounge interlude by Eugeniusz and rounded off by a Lento ...view item »

Ron Gallo
Stardust Birthday Party

Ron Gallo was going through a difficult time when recorded his last album, Heavy Meta. This, he felt, prevented him from putting the real Ron Gallo on tape.

Soft Cell
Northern Lights / Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)

They are back back back folks: Marc Almond’s classic synth-pop concern Soft Cell, presenting their first new material since the heady days of 2002. Although apparently this is a bit of a farewell release too… Northern Lights doffs a cap to the Northern Soul sound, which had a key influence ...view item »

Peluché
Unforgettable

Peluché self-identify as a ‘trip jam’ group, which basically means that they make neo-soul of a more psychedelic strain than your average bunch of cosmopolitan jazzers. It’s a good look for them.

M.Geddes Gengras
Light Pipe

Light Pipe is the 10th album from synth maestro M.Geddes Gengras.

He reflects these spac...view item »

Olivia Block
132 Ranks

Richard Ashcroft
Alone With Everybody

Richard Ashcroft, as you probably know, was the lead singer with The Verve.

Choir Boy
Passive With Desire

Synth-pop!

The Felice Brothers

The Felice Brothers debut album was originally released in 2008.
