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

7/10 according to our Robin on 30th June 2015

Funkstorung have tried on many different electronic hats over the years, finding the time between their busy schedule of endless remixes to give IDM, breakbeats, electro-pop and acid house a whirl. Over twenty years, though, the production duo have only released four full lengths; this, the fourth, sums them up with erudite pop music stitched fr…view full details.

Sometimes noise surges can be as pleasant as they are pugnant, and there are none so vile and kindly as Campbell Kneale. A maker of dissonance and a feedback vendor of the highest, Kneale here continues his apocalyptically titled Our Love Will Destroy The World project, which is reaching its first milestone. Under OLWDTW, Kneale sounds …view full details.

7/10 according to our Robin on 2nd July 2015

On ‘Out To Sea’ there are few, if any surprises, because psych rock is a creature of habits. Over eleven tunes, Carlton Melton continue to do what they do rather fucking adequately, swirling their guitars around and around like they’re caught in slow-mo rapids. When we last checked in with them on their split with …view full details.

I once heard a song so good that I can still hear it in my mind now.... I've NEVER found out who it was by. This was back in 1982 you understand.  I bring this up because the clanging, 'Will We Last' is the nearest thing I've heard to that lost slab of greatness.
