Floorplan (Robert Hood)
Victorious

9/10 according to our Ant

The Master Builder Robert Hood unleashes his second album as Floorplan for his M-Plant label, now assisted by his daughter Lyric for eleven tracks of ecstatic party music with elements of Gospel, Disco, Funk and of course techno but essentially this is a house music album. Recently Hood has m…view full details.

9/10 according to our Phil

I’ve been lured out of my imposed review abstinence by the new Memory Drawings album. Every so often I just get the urge to write about something when confronted with something special and this is one of those special things. Even the office musical pixie ‘Kim’ piped up this was beautiful when I was having a sneaky listen the other morning…view full details.

9/10 according to our Clinton

The Clint home stereo is the most fickle of mistresses with its Roman Abramovich style approach to hiring and firing each hopeful release daring to kneel before its crown. One disc that has managed to escape its wrath over the past month or so has been this, the excellent third album from West Yorkshire based Northerner. Northerners prev…view full details.

Destination Lonely
Kiss or Kicks

18 people love me. Be the 19th...

9/10 according to our Mike

Bit of proto-punk worship on this lively little 45rpm mini-album from Frenchies Destination Lonely. I guess the Stooges are an obvious reference point here, particularly in opener 'Kiss or Kicks' where the blazing in-the-red guitar leads and swaggering grooves all point in that direction for sure, but these guys seem a bit more measured and less unhinged than Iggy's lot. When they t…view full details.

Well, we'd like to review the 7” that comes with this wonderful book/magazine but it seems to be  stapled to the back of the sleeve making removal and reattachment a bit of a tricky business.

9/10 according to our Li'l Biz

Okay, I've got a good one here! Octavius is the working pseudonym of William Marshall. I've not had the pleasure of hearing his earlier work but 'Laws' sounds awesome! Clearly a dedicated artist with a clear vision, Marshall's style is stark and minimal yet possesses a strong sense of melody for an artist you'd most likely define as expe…view full details.

There's some bits in on the Silber label this week. One of which is a CD by Vlor who I've not heard before. I did somehow manage to review the first album without even listening to it. That's well poor..... It was probably sealed or something, damned that plastic...

New work from Erik Carlson of Providence RI is always greeted hear with open ears. For this particular release he's joining the dots between Seefeel, Terry Riley and Steve Reich and in the process has created some engaging, intricate and ultra dreamy audio. Guitar, Organ, drum machine and keyboard were utilized to create these layers of shimmering tones and ever evolving gentle micro rhythms. T…view full details.

One of my favourite female voices of all time has glided heroically back into the frame. K records star Mirah - friend & collaborator of PW Eleverum from the Microphones, featuring on 3 tunes here - is a wonder to behold. On new album '(a)spera', her honeyed tones embrace atmospheric folk, experimental baroque pop & offbeat tropicalia, these slinky, magical tunes invoking the fantastical, …view full details.

Is it just me or is every band "on the up" in the current pool of U.S. Underground acts obsessed with sounding lo-fi, 80s or just really fucking druggy? These guys don't sound 80's though. They do sometimes fall into the 90's post-Slanted & Enchanted category. Those wonderful bands that buried their rambling, shambling tunes under swathes of crackly distortion and static-like fuzz, but only…view full details.

Samsun is the nom-de-plume of a Floridian guy called Justin who has constructed a wildly spangled & kaleidoscopic disco odyssey here. 'Samo Milagro' does indeed share parallels with both Four Tet's dreamier elements & the more ambient & cosmic side of this much-loved woozy chill-wave shit. Mount Kimbie have been mentioned amongst the bandied-about names, names that litter your mind,…view full details.

Chanson Sigeru
#1 Dad

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

9/10 according to our Brett

I really like this Chanson Shigeru CD we've got in on Maomoo/Art Union. #1 Dad is very reminiscent of early Animal Collective as well as Black Dice and certain Boredoms stuff ('Super Coming' from Super Ae is one example), doing that playful technicolour noise thing extremely well.. Very atonal but not abrasive in the least. It's a delightfully swirling cacophony of sounds, smothering your mind w…view full details.

Latest Blackest Rainbow endorsed CDr of head stabbingly fine noisemongering comes from a mysterious duo that have been accused of Yorkshire dwelling but have titled their 3 brooding slabs of dystopian industrialisms & progressive noise in spidery Welsh, like Wales is the new Norway and that (so your guess is as good as mine as to their origin?).

Phil has just put a CD on by Kadaver. 'Molested Into Form' really sounds like the bowels of Satan being forcibly shat into my ears in a windstorm. "An hurricane of death" (c. Phil) flying at your face. A maelstrom of noise being injected into your cortex by the very keepers of Hades. The sound daisies make when wrenched from the ground by black toothed children after a nuclear holocaust.…view full details.

The Sky Larkin album has landed in all it's fine glory. The Golden Spike is 12 tracks of pure quality indie pop. Each year I like about one indie album (on average).... Last year it was These New Puritans and the year before it was the Young Knives and I think this year it's gonna be this one. I've been reasonably taken by the singles but I've not been bothered to take 'em. I decided to just wait …view full details.

This Sixtoes CD on Toe Music is lovely. It's called Trick of The Night and it's a CD only affair. Immediately you'll be struck in the face with a high pitched warbly voice you'll either love or hate. It's one of those voices which will either make or break the CD for you. Unusually for me (as I pretty much hate the human voice and everyone who has one) it doesn't bother me, and in fact I actually …view full details.

Surprise, surprise yet another Planet Mu release and this weeks installment is somewhat of a departure from the breakbeat science of recent weeks.

It’s now time to ask the all-important question: what music did the Radiophonic Workshop members not make?

Sunglassed cartoon character Moon B returns with a record on his own gosh darn imprint here, packing up all the stuff he’d stored in the 1080p office back when ‘Lifeworld’ was a wee tape.

Sparky is Dave James Clark, one who has contributed three 12” discs to the Numbers label, all in the space of 2 years (‘13-’15). Now that’s an endorsement. Why such enthusiasm for one artist?

Rodinia started this whole gnarly kosmische box social off by jamming out some deviations on their synth equipment: they saw were things were going and sailed away forever, and later return to shore for the rhythmic overdubs.

Oh cheers. Another thing to make me feel old. Its 10 years since Palm Springs first ever release.... and there I was having them down as a new band.

Prolific experimental songwriter Richard Youngs is back once again this week, and this time he’s done a double album, with some compositions extended to marathon length.
