Ltd digipak CD on Hibernate. Edition of 100 copies. Some spiritual alleviation from Danny Clay. Ganymede are eight works from the Midwestern artists and producer. These pieces came to life when Clay took a bit of Schubert's Ganymed, disentangled the parts and created his own piece of ambient wellness. His studio wizardry shows how much one can do with the smallest amount of…view full details.

"We're playing rock with acoustic guitars", reads the packet for 'Deaf Sun/Deaf Blues'.

9/10 according to our Ian on 2nd March 2015

Swervedriver were always one of those bands that never quite fit into the demographic of the multitudes of '90s musical genres: too rock to be indie, too indie to get the rock kids headbanging along. To me though, that constant fence sitting is what has made their music sound so timeless. It is true that you can't help but throw those typical sh…view full details.

There's so much to sing the praises of in this gentle giant of an ambient record from Jonas Munk.
