Tori No Hito - Nausicaä Of The Valley Of Wind: Image Album

Before Studio Ghibli made Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind, composer Joe Hisaishi created a soundtrack based on the manga that inspired the film. In the same way that a film studio will create concept artwork to get a better sense of how the film might look, this is a conc...view item »

Aleksi Perala
Sunshine 1

Aleksi Perala’s miniature album proposition Sunshine 1 is a very fine piece of IDM-leaning electronics, with sexy titles like ‘NL-L56-18-07382’ setting the tone. Really though, for all the inte...view item »

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.

A mixture of psych rock anthems and darker more politically aware material that...view item »

Haley
Pleasureland

Haley is not a new person. It's a new truncated name for Haley Bonar (now McCallum). But it is a new sound for the Minnesota based artist who has used her name change to make a bold move by removing all vocals from her music. Bold because her music was pretty much based around her golden throated melodies. Instead you get synth ...view item »

Dub Surgeon
The Lost Future

The tracks in this record are named quite well because they are literally given a number. A number 1 to 13, in fact. I kind of wish more bands would do this because it certainly makes it easier. Anyway, Dub Surgeon has released The Lost Future and it brings us 'an authentic dub experience'. Released on Ark to Ashes and available on vinyl LP.&nbs...view item »

The Lotus Eaters
Desatura

Please be very very careful. This is not the 1980s Lotus Eaters famous for their 'First Picture of You' single. Instead these are two techno artists Lucy and Rrose.

Roberto Donati
Cannibal Ferox

On the sleeve of this cult classic is a semi naked woman, with a strategically placed ‘banned in 31 countries’ banner covering her boobies, she’s in almost certain impending doom surrounded by a load of ne’er-do-wells with pointy spears. However you perceive yourself in life you should be grateful you are not this poor wo...view item »

Mike Cooper
Tropical Gothic

Mythic Sunship work in a doom-psych context, but the presence of a saxophone, as well as a free-jazz mindset, takes their work into wider territory.

Brighton quintet the Squid may have more limbs than their namesake, but at least they put them to good use. They’ve finally thought us worthy for a proper release of live-set favorite the Dial.
