3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 28th July 2015

Imagine a cheery Lou Reed strutting down Stoke Newington high street on a sunny Wednesday morning. “How ya doin’ Mr Postman”, “Good to see you Mr Dealer”, he’s full of vitality as he flips an apple in the air. This is the image that Jack Cooper (Mazes)…view full details.

BEAK / KAEB
Split EP

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 28th July 2015

Why bother finding a band to share a split 12” with when you can just reverse your name and do it all by yourselves. This is also a double B side and if you thought that meant all the songs were bad then you’ve got another thing coming. They are all good. On the first side Geoff Barrows's Beak do two swirly krauty almost…view full details.

Samantha Crain
Under Branch & Thorn & Tree

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th July 2015

Unless there was a recording studio under that branch, thorn and tree, I contest this record’s pastoral chops. Samantha Crain has made a fine record, here, but it’s not the sparse folk story you might expect, involving instead a great deal of enigmatic production and electronic supplementing. Though Crain has her guitar and voice to …view full details.

Karen Gwyer
Bouloman

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 24th July 2015

Traversing the outer boundaries of techno once again is our fave Karen Gwyer and her cluster of technological massage. The machine grooves on Bouloman are set to drift and hypnotise you with her now-perfected contrast between the thump-squelch of acidic drum lines and deeply moving synth washes, which vary in subtlety from a hint (&lsqu…view full details.

Pvre Matrix
LIES027.5

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 24th July 2015

This looks like the next part of LIES .5 series of mostly white labels, releases between releases. This time Pvre Matrix takes the reins, throwing hard rhythmic shapes mercilessly at your withered ears. ‘Burning Sulfur’ sets things off on a bit of a crazy note, the quickened pace combining well with the subtle dissonant arps to creat…view full details.

Nurse With Wound
Soliloquy For Lilith

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

10/10 according to our Ant on 23rd July 2015

Essential reissue of Nurse With Wound’s epic 3CD masterpiece. Quite possibly my all time favourite Nurse With Wound release. Apparently so popular with fans at the time of it’s vinyl release back in 1988 it funded his family’s move to a farm in Irelan…view full details.

Yair Elazar Glotman
Études

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

9/10 according to our Laurie on 23rd July 2015

The double bass is an instrument that has struggled to escape from the world that created it - the ruthless traditionalist institution of Classical music. Jazz was its ray of hope, but that soon formalised into something not too far away from the Vienna schools. Yair Elazar Glotman is a child of this system who realised that you can actually do …view full details.

Desaparecidos
Payola

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 22nd July 2015

Are you ready to feel, etc? Back in the day, Conor Oberst used Desaparecidos as an outlet for a different kind of bloodletting from his standard fare sad boy songwriting. When he wanted to scream and scorch the earth out of nothing but spite, he’d go round up his post-hardcore crew and shout a little bit.…view full details.

Seconds / JOYA
Split

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 22nd July 2015

Seconds perform indie rock as a delightful, mindless romp: a quartet playing with a conventional set up and a couple of organ/keyboard additives here and there, they go straight for the hooks and focus tunes around them, adding in quirks and extras as and when, so deal with it, okay? “Crawl Space” sends out squeaky keys and …view full details.

Gurgles
Gurglefirst?

12 people love me. Be the 13th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 21st July 2015

This was produced by Hookworms' MJ at his Suburban Home (you can tell immediately by the amount of slapback echo on the vocals), but whereas Hookworms play one chord, Gurgles play a million. Opener ‘You’re Madder Than Me’ sets its stall out to update the kind of complex proggy pop that te…view full details.

Alessandro Cortini
Risveglio

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 23rd July 2015

After an uninspired attempt at making some dank slow techno, Alessandro Cortini, one of the Nine Inch Nails, brings melody back to the forefront for this CD on Vatican Shadow‘s Hospital Productions. On Risveglio, Cortini uses minimal synth layers to…view full details.

Acre / Filter Dread

Visionist’s Lost Codes label teams up with PAN to become PAN sublabel PAN x Codes with the first release; a collaborative EP from Acre / Filter Dread. There's no room for purism in any of these productions, utilizing key elements of UK Bass, Grime, Techno etc. Kicking off …view full details.

Fennesz / OZmotic
AirEffect

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Ant on 23rd July 2015

Fennesz of course is a cherished artist in electronic/ experimental music. OZmotic is a name that’s new to me but appears to be the duo of Stanislao Lesnoj (Soprano sax, visual, electronics) and SmZ (drums, objects and electronics). Together they join Fen…view full details.

Omar Souleyman
Bahdeni Nami

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 22nd July 2015

Well, would you just look at that production lineup. Hasn’t Omar Souleyman got some talented friends? That’ll bring in the punters. One mention of a certain Peterson and whoosh, the popular stampede takes form and promptly crushes any other musical interest you may have hoped to have. He does find some good music though. Anyway, thes…view full details.

When your grandad is film composer John Williams and your dad was in Air Supply, how can you possibly fail in the world of music? Vinyl Williams (Lionel to his friends) has crafted an album which forges a similar path to other hazy pop troubadours such as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, …view full details.

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Andy on 22nd July 2015

I should get danger money for doing these reviews - seriously, I need medical assistance after this one. Why? My neck hurts - this is just one long headnodder of an album. Do they still use that term - necksnapper - when referring to this sort of hip-hop? Well its appropriate. Knxwledge (aka Knowledge for those that will hit up Discogs after get…view full details.

8/10 according to our Robin on 22nd July 2015

I’ve got psych rock fever, in so far as I have hay fever and I’m listening to psych rock. The psych in question is the work of 10000 Russos, a Portuguese crew of smoke ‘n’ mirrors rockers who keep themselves at an echoing, lo-fi distance as their riffs circle the drain and drone into the sewers. The hay fever is mainly ju…view full details.

Seven Davis Jnr
Universes

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Andy on 22nd July 2015

Seven Davis Jnr made quite an impact on Ninja Tune with the barnstorming 12" 'Wild Hearts' - pretty bold to then leave that off the album as it is a real killer tune. Having remixed Four Tet and of course being picked up by Ninja he has demonstrated some pedigree - you don't get those gigs by being a chancer, howev…view full details.

Ashtray Navigations
A Shimmering Replica

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

9/10 according to our Jim on 22nd July 2015

Ash Nav’s psychoactive stream of cosmic consciousness flows unabated, hitting a sun-scorched plateau of ecstatic intensity that’s rare by even their standards for this latest LP on VHF. The record bristles into being with the phaser-fuzzed smears and ruminating electronic pulsations of ‘Cold Lemon Door & Side Table’ a…view full details.

Gwenno Saunders has had quite the roller-coaster life having been in the Pipettes, had a role in Welsh Language soap Pobol y Cwm on S4C and been touring keyboard player with Elton John. Meanwhile I’ve done nothing but sit on my big fat lazy arse. This album was rel…view full details.

Wen
Senary Cycles EP

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st July 2015

Wen is one of those grime artists that has been pushing the definition of the genre the last few years, and definitely upping the ante when it comes to production. Future grime? Let’s not go there. Not again. It’s nice to hear some of this stuff with an introspective feel instead of waving a metaphorical knife in your face. T…view full details.

Girl One And The Grease Guns
The Shatterproof Man

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 21st July 2015

Just look at that nice price: £3.79, and you get a bonus CD. Girl One and the Grease Guns are big on concepts -- no promo photos, total anonymity, they produce songs catchy enough to provoke interest in any fan of synth pop. The lead track ‘The Shatterproof Man’ is an immediately infectious slab of synth good…view full details.

Umchunga

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st July 2015

The latest from Hibernate has arrived, and it’s from a relative newcomer to the world of released music, Tehran’s Umchunga aka Nima Pourkarimi. No guesses as to what it sounds like - the Hibernate lot really meant every word of their Bandcamp mission statement. Not a lot of labels can say that. Well done. Should Have Been…view full details.

Kawabata Makoto
Astro Love and Infinite Kisses

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Jim on 20th July 2015

Kawabata Makoto is back taking his listeners on cosmic voyages, without the more rock-grounded excesses of Acid Mother’s Temple for this double LP on VHF­. As a result we get the more ethereal, but no less intense side of Makoto’s unflinching psychedelic vision. The sounds seem to come from his guitar and warm, b…view full details.

The Declining Winter
Home For Lost Souls

48 people love me. Be the 49th...

9/10 according to our Robin on 17th July 2015

On his latest record, ‘Home For Lost Souls’, Richard Adams receives a snowflake on a plate of caviar and says “no thank you very much”. So begins the saddest album ever made. The ex-Hood and current Memory Drawings guitar cyborg …view full details.

Liberez
All Tense Now Lax

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

9/10 according to our Laurie on 17th July 2015

Well, which is it? Tense or Lax? Judging by the impending percussion and escarpments of noise currently ushering my ears to an early grave, I’d say the former is where this resides. Southend-on-Sea must be a horrible place to live if it inspires these abrasive emotions, but thank you for being so shit and birthing this into the world. Now …view full details.

Imandra Lake

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 17th July 2015

This is a CD containing a single version of Imandra Lake man Rein Fuks’ ‘Kaks Vood’ and a megaremix extravaganza - a whopping 6 of them including versions from Bill Wells and The Declining Winter. The original kicks things off, and is basically the soun…view full details.

Om

9/10 according to our Ant on 26th March 2009

I've just been to take the washing out of the tumble dryer and completely forgotten what I was supposed to be doing. All I could think of was the latest masterpiece from Om: 'Pilgrimage'. I'm now playing this CD for the 7th time. It's difficult to recall ever revisiting an album so frequently in such a small amount of time.…view full details.

Sleaford Mods

9/10 according to our Robin on 16th July 2015

Well of course we like it. But let’s talk about it. Sleaford Mods have actually been making records for years now, like the prolific crossover between a crusty band doing 7” splits, a rapper throwing archives onto DatPiff and, you know, the Fall. They have a good half dozen full le…view full details.

Best Friends
Hot. Reckless. Totally Insane.

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 16th July 2015

Best Friends are a bunch of racketeers from Sheffield, Yorkshire who should not under any circumstances be confused with Best Fwends. They make ten unpretentious slabs of indie rock like the sort yer dad used to make after a day down t’pit. It’s hard to believe now but even I was young once and if I were twenty years younger …view full details.

Stefan Wesolowski
Kompleta

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 14th July 2015

Initially composed for performance in 2006, Stefan Wesolowski’s ‘Kompleta’ showed off a young composer in the throes of a neo-classical awakening. Looking at the record’s cover is perhaps the most fitting explanation of Wesolowski’s infatuation: a church littered with scaffolding rising high into its ceiling, sugges…view full details.

As the rest of the Norman pantheon get generously lullabyed by Yo La Tengo’s new covers album, I am betrothed to the new Merzbow record. The ecstatic noisemaker is turning his gaze towards philanthropy with ‘Wildwood’; all proceeds raised by this torrentially dissonant record go to a bear trust…view full details.

It’s not often we get a record in stock that literally stops the office in it’s tracks. This is like nothing we’ve ever heard before. The only way I can describe it is to imagine that you were the guy that takes the money at a rehearsal studio. Two bands are rehearsing in rooms at either end of the corridor but they’ve le…view full details.

Remastered 180g vinyl reissue, compilation LP on 4AD. A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes.

I never really forgive the members of Ratatat for breaking up their previous outfit E*vax who made a startlingly original electronic record or two way back when. Ratatat do the same thing across this record and at times it is hugely enjoyable. They have a distinctive sound - something that is akin to Queen's Brian May jo…view full details.

This is Matt Morandi’s second album as Jahiliyya Fields for L.I.E.S. I’ve never heard his first one but was reasonably taken with his ‘Pleasure Centre’ 12” for the label so I’m all ears for this one. Kicking off with the warm organic…view full details.

Returning after a sleepy 15 years is the noisewagon of David Pearce’s Flying Saucer Attack on Domino. I guess all the vaguely shoegazey '90's groups are getting bored of early retirements so why not make some more music? Because the world’s shoegaze quota is already full. Luckily, Instrumentals 2015 isn’t a ful…view full details.

Out of all the ambient types that littered our stock room with limited edition CD releases a few years ago, Celer were always the ones who could most easily evoke a mood of total calm.
