Jarboe / Father Murphy

Jarboe, the dark queen, is working alongside Father Murphy, the Italian art-rock catholic-guilt experimentalists. As you can imagine, this pair-up guarantees some seriously intense and darkly erotic vibes, and the two tracks of this 10”...view item »

Sontag Shogun & Moskitoo
The Things We Let Fall Apart / The Thunderswan

Breathy-voiced Moskitoo (Sanae Yamasaki) joins forces with Sontag Shogun (Ian Temple, Jesse Perlstein and Jeremy Young) to produce a pair of gentle electroacoustic ambient numbers for Home Normal. Field recordings, piano, Moskitoo’s voice and various electronics are all more or less processed into an elega...view item »

The Circle and The Point / Sleepwalkers Local / Chapels
Split

OK, I THINK this is The Circle and the Point who I'm listening to at the moment and they sound like a right bunch of oddballs - in the nicest possible way of course. There seems to be a weird kind of semi-industrial noise drone loop thing going on which is making me imagine a Lucky Dragons remix of a collaboration between Starving Weirdos and so...view item »

You + Your D. Metal Friend
Sonnier

Cico Beck and Markus Acher of the Notwist have teamed up as You + Your D. Metal Friend to create something of consistent, delicate beauty, in “Sonnier”. Tickled analogue synth, gently tinkling percussion under soft mallets and warm, undulating bass all combine over the course of the six ‘Sonnie...view item »

Leonardo Rosado
Studies On Solitude

These Twisted Treeline 3" CDrs are coming thick and fast, with this week's offering from Leonardo Rosado who also records as Subterminal. The title here probably gives the game away somewhat as to what the overall mood is here. Yeah, you guessed it's pret...view item »

Providien
Followed By A Wraith

It's too early for this crazy business. Hailing from the grimy Midwestern state of Ohio, this duo of Mark Van Fleet and Nathan Reynolds do their damnedest to replicate the sound of your worst Gothic nightmares to tape. This album is outright noise insanity! Primarily a collection of collages and cut-up home recordings, these sloth-like movements...view item »

Music for Dead Birds
And Then It Rained for Seven Days

Music for Dead Birds. What a cheery moniker. They've a 3" CD out on that Rusted Rail, one of those hand assembled jobs. I'd like to assemble some sleeves for them. They look like the greetings cards I make for folk. These folks squeeze 8 songs onto this tiny disclet and name it "And Then It Rained For Seven Days" As i'm off to Scotla...view item »

Osunlade
Peacock

Osunlade is back this week with a new LP on Yoruba. It plays at 45rpm but doesn't say that anywhere on the artwork, and the first track is instrumental, so don't make the same mistake I made and try to listen to it at 33. It sounds great at that speed, even when the vocals come in, but it's not right. It's a tough LP to pin down. Despite...view item »

Model 500
No UFO's Remixes

Juan Atkins’ calling card to extraterrestrial life sounds as vital now as it did back in ’85, but the key building block in what is now called techno has never received a modern re-rub. That all changes as second generation Detroit hero Moodymann turns in something of a cover version of the lege...view item »

Ensemble Economique
no thing-ness

Ensemble Economique are next up on the luscious series of Dekoder 12”s celebrating ten years of the label. no thing-ness branches out from EE’s ambient Not Not Fun jams and into industrial worlds full of foreboding sonic architecture, grey concrete and, er, grist. On a wall-mount-worthy hybrid pictur...view item »

Bob & Gene
If This World Were Mine

Not to be mistaken for television's most healthily dysfunctional father-son duo, Bob & Gene is a pair of soul artists given a revived slice of history with If This World Were Mine, initially reissued ten years ago. Teenagers who met and recorded gospel together, their work was originally put out ...view item »

John Davis
Spare Parts

This is the first album from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Davis in over 15 years, apparently. As a spring chicken of only 30 years myself, I suppose that gives me a good excuse to never have heard his music before, so if this review seems unresearched please forgive me. I’m quit...view item »

Kassem Mosse
Chilazon Gaiden

Chilazon Gaiden is the new EP from German producer Kassem Mosse, real name Gunnar Wendel. The double 12”, on Ominira, is informally split into two parts. According to Wendel, the first half is beats, then the tunes come in on the second half. Chilazon Gaiden gives you a dece...view item »

The Doubling Riders
Garama

The Doubling Riders originally released Garama in 1991. The album is a strange beast: for the most part it is more or less ambient music, composed out of quiet, leisurely synths and some distant vocal samples. The inspiration is apparently the ancient kingdom from which the record takes its name. Reissued by Time Releas...view item »

Noya Rao
Icaros

Icaros is the debut album by Leeds quartet Noya Rao. The group are headed up by Tom Henry, who, as a producer has worked with Cosima and Yellow Days. Taking their influences from jazz, hip-hop and electronic music, they blend all three with dub to make dreamy, sou...view item »

Louis Guilliaume

Kan​ ​Mikami​ ​/​ ​John Edwards​ ​/​ ​Alex​ ​Nielson
​Live​ ​at​ ​Cafe​ ​Oto

Kan Mikami is sometimes simplistically portrayed as the Japanese Bob Dylan, but he’s been an important figure in his homeland since the 70s. International renown has perhaps been limited by the language barrier versus his musically sparse, lyric-heavy songs. However that&rsq...view item »

Martial Canterel

Daunt
Unbearable Light

Chiselled Londoner Daunt’s debut EP Unbearable Light is a polite bunch of funky, downtempo electropop. It can be a dreary thing to search for meaningful connections within today’s oppressive, hypermediated urban contexts. Lyrically, such a theme seems to run through each of the songs here. We’re also i...view item »

Mark-Henning Sargent

Mark Henning bails out of the world of club music with this joyous exploration of one of his favourite genres: that rich world of vintage sci-fi and horror movie soundtracks that everybody loves these days. No Origin is a fourteen track trip through the spacey sounds that Mark hears in his head: sounds ...view item »

Digital Release
Positive Approach

Digital Release get a physical release - and that’s just where the confusion begins. This collaboration between ambidextrous media production centre Georgia (Brian Close and Justin Tripp) and RVNG Intl. boss Matt Werth is a rather off-the-wall adventure. The trio seem to be aiming for trippy, unbridled experimentation, wit...view item »

Aleem
Release Yourself

Originally released in 1984, identical-twin-brother duo Aleem’s Release Yourself gets a timely repress.

Wolf People
When The Fire Is Dead in the Grate

After all of this slickly 80s fare that's about it's good to hear some real music, by real men, with real beards, drinking real beer by a real fire. Wolf People are a kind of progressive folk act that remind me of damp moss. They epitomise the colour green, and you kind of expect them to be half man, half tree. ...view item »

C P Smith
DJ Tools Vol​.​1 - 808 Tracks

With CPU standing proud as one of the most reliable outposts for proper, no-messing electro business, it’s time for the boss man CP Smith to step up with some robo-grooves of his own. There’s no mystery behind a release title DJ Tools Vol. 1 – 808 Tracks and why should there be? This package does just ...view item »

DJ Spider & Franklin De Costa
F Planet

Spacious and claustrophobic at the same time, DJ Spider & Franklin De Costa's 'F Planet' gives us grumbling, percussive techno, rising and dipping in sonic height. The free manipulations lend the tracks a unique sense of life, patches of noise here, wild frequency and filter shifts there, evolving in two directions at once. ...view item »

Dis Ya Sound

Classy reissue from Jamwax. ‘Dis Ya Sound’ is a pleasant bit of dub-reggae that is served with all the trimmings.

Florian Kupfer
Florian Kupfer

Back on Ron Morelli’s grinding L.I.E.S. imprint, Florian Kupfer returns for yet more lo-fi, industrially-flavoured, analogue madness that threatens to rattle its house and techno template until it falls clean apart. With track titles like ‘Random Chaos’ and a closer that’s ...view item »

Urgence

With intact hiss and lo-fi drums at the backbone of this subtle record, 'Urgence' is dripping in realness.

It's a singular record for inner city night walks and strange mornings....view item »

Dragon's Path EP

Cascading synths sit at the heart of this techno four tracker, which has a slight old school trance feeling to it. The arpeggios roll on and on as understated beats and bass rumble beneath them.

Incredible Rock City
Invasion Of The Rock-O-Mites

Obscuro vintage wonder here from The Incredible Rock City Band, a touring group in the 80’s who apparently only played at US army bases. I gotta say though, they sound a lot less straight-laced than that might lead you to expect: this is funky electro s...view item »

Lastminuteman
To Him Who Has Nothing

Intriguing debut EP from some shadowy figure or figures from Dublin. The five tracks are more or less variations on a dubbed-up house style, full of unpredictable interjections in the form of blurry chord stabs and stray snatches of melody over precariously rickety beats. It never quite falls apart, but maintains a lovely elusive and ambiguous v...view item »

Six new tracks from Alejandro Mosso, who reckons that this set represents a move away from sheer dancefloor utilitarianism and towards electronic music narratives: songs if you will.

Falling somewhere between Blackest Ever Black territory, Demdike Stare sampling pastiches, sound art, Black Dice experimentalism and multiple genre referencing. Assel makes his debut on the Where To Now? Label with This Will Not Stand, casting any allegiances to the side, morphing recog...view item »

Inger Lorre
Live At The Viper Room

Inger Lorre of Infamous Nymphs kicked out these particular jams to an adoring sold-out crowd Live At The Viper Room, and these recordings have now (thank god!) surfaced. The sound is a raw unleashing of energy, with a Siouxsie & The Banshees cover chucked in along with original ...view item »

Julion De’Angelo & Thomas Xu
Roots That Talk

Detroit’s Sound Signature Records (Theo Parrish, Hanna) front two tracks a-piece from Illinois up-and-comers Julion De’Angelo and Thomas Xu. De’Angelo’s offerings are by turns lopsided synth-funk (‘Chase the Summer’) and softl...view item »

Dwight Sykes
On The Rocks

The record that Dwight Sykes should probably have released in the 1980’s is available to pick up on this nine-track record. On The Rocks is a pretty low-fi and easy listening affair that contains elements on 80’s soul and jazz, but with a rough and ready finish of a not-so-overproduced album. Available on Vi...view item »

Casi
The Beast

This new single from another one of those London Grammar-type singers sets itself apart for three reasons: It’s got a great beat, sort of like this mash-up of Sophie’s ‘Hard’ and Death Grips’ ‘Anne Bonny’ I heard on YouTube once. ...view item »

Juliana Hatfield
Pussycat

Juliana Hatfield, whose career stretches back to the early 90’s, thought she was finished with songwriting until a certain presidential election happened. Like (we predict) quite a few artists, this jolted her into creativity, speedily writing and recording fourteen songs of vivid music. The results are here on Pussyca...view item »

A.J. Holmes
Robin Hood Gardens

A.J. Holmes here pays tribute to Robin Hood Gardens, a soon-to-be-demolished '70s housing estate in London. Holmes recorded these melancholy guitar and vocal songs in various parts of the estate, relying on the natural resonance of the spaces, rather than any post-production effects, to colour the recor...view item »

Moa Pillar
Hymns

Russian producer Moa Pillar returns with his second full length for the Full Of Nothing label. Taking his inspiration from folk music and the fringes of electronica and techno equally, Hymns stirs a mix of energised Alva Noto digital textures, with upbeat percussion and a human soul. His long tracks can...view item »

Beisspony
Brush Your Teeth

Munich duo Beisspony have an LP of quirky experimental pop here. The first thing I'm reminded of is CocoRosie - this is very melodic and playful music with a very clear sense of identity, but the sonic experimentation here is more earthy in an almost arts and crafts way. There's typewriters and sewing machines and...view item »

Alias
Pitch Black Prism

Myself and one of Team Norm were discussing the other day about how Anticon has gone from consistently awesome bastion of backpack hip-hop cool to frustratingly patchy over the course of a mere few years. This time resident beat-maker Alias returns with his third solo effort, 'Pitch Black Prism'. As with Alias's previous efforts, though,...view item »

Deas & Denton
Deas & Denton

I want to review this but we're all being distracted by looking at German teenybopper magazine covers from the 80s - Don Johnson seemed to have quite the fanbase there in those days, even Hasselhoff's got nothing on him. Anyhoo this is a bit of a curveball for anyone who might buy it expecting Cam Deas to be contributing his usual amazing acoust...view item »

Ben Penn
Spare Hobby / Carrera

The handily rhyming Ben Penn is a Dutch 'agent' who has made what he describes as "inter dimensional higher level funk" using a vocoder to create that true '80s electro vibe. He's an expert on the synthesiser and uses this instrument to create wild retro flourishes to remind you of the time you danced to Hancock (Herbie).  ...view item »

The Last Four Digits
Don't Move (1980-1982)

The Last Four Digits were a band that only existed for a few years in the early 80’s, but still managed to have two thoroughly different line-ups in that time. Don’t Move (1980-1982) anthologises both editions of this key underground new wave group with a great selection of tracks. The LP version comes with ...view item »

Georgio 'The Dove' Valentino
The Sorrows of Young Georgio

Georgio 'The Dove' Valentino is back. People try to pigeonhole 'The Dove', they try to diss 'The Dove', but the 'The Dove' always bounces back. 'The Dove' always gets his way. Evidently not a happy bunny, 'The Dove' returns with a bleak work which disturbs. The first track sounds a bit like an I Like Trains who have moved to Lithuania and go...view item »

Man Power
Sonic Pressure

Newcastle and Mexico, the respective birth place and residence of experimental producer Man Power, are two very different places - nearly as contrasting as the two tracks which front MP's new EP, Sonic Pressure. Stripped back, danceable and still quintessentially within the realms of the producer's trademark style....view item »

Richard Bone
Age of Falconry

After initially working in his own band, Bone, and new wavers Shox Lumania in the late 70s and 80s Richard Bone set up Quirkworks Laboratory Discs and went solo to experiment with ambient electronica meeting jazz and lounge. Landing somewhere between Penguin Cafe Orchestra and ...view item »

Fos
Captain Free

This is the third album by Greek-born artist Katerina Koutouzi also known as Fos, entitled Captain Free. The record takes you through what can only be described as a soundscape of acoustic-electro and experimental pop, combined with a solid use of airy vocals and synths.  The record is released on her own label &ls...view item »

Medicine and Duty
Sunken Carnival

Medicine and Duty are a new name to me but they feature characters I've come across before, In fact these lot are practically a super group with members of Teeth Of The Sea (Matt Colegate), Shrag, Black Neck Band of the Common Loon (Andy Pyne) and Guillotines' (Jack Cooper) all getting involved. This is their 6th studio album and the first to ma...view item »

Apart
Digital Frame

Apart is an artist whose work I've not come in to contact with before. Found myself having a little chuckle after reading the surprisingly earnest press release (which is probably worth quoting but I won't bother) although the record itself is pretty decent. Definitely one for the Port-Royal/Hammock fans of the world as this is one of them ambie...view item »

C Duncan
Other Side

Cute lil' 7" from the once folk-quaint C. Duncan, who did what every indie rock darling does and played around with synths on The Midnight Sun. "Other Side" was one of Duncan's first public excursions with electronics and offered a shimmering sideways glance to his usual style, his delicate and decidedly Gr...view item »

Bruno Pronsato

Bruno Pronsato returns to full-length album making after six years, presenting a direct and powerful set of electronic compositions that tap into unusual tuning systems and tuned percussions. Angus Andrew from Liars features on one track, bringing an aspect of Pronsato’s p...view item »

Head Of Programmes
The Spring Band Was

Head of Programmes is the pseudonym of James MacGregor, a singer/songwriter based down south somewhere. Macgregor's music is both accomplished and heartfelt in the vein of classic mid-nineties underground Americana a la Smog, Lambchop, Bonnie P.B., Sun Kil Moon and, most prominently, The Mountain Goats. The EP begins with one of those top down, ...view item »

DJ Mistakes
DJ Mistakes

This is nuts. First of all the artwork of the copy I'm reviewing has a load of random crap thrown in - a circle of foil and one of coloured acetate...a computer printout with a single strand of tinsel sellotaped to it, that sort of thing. The sleeve itself is a total thing of beauty, too, screenprinted onto spar...view item »

Bible, Burke & Henry
Live In The Port Of Kings

Not a firm of solicitors as you may think but time again for a Clint's Improvisational Mayhem Corner and the latest in the line of the lovely looking and popular Rural Route series. The blurb on the sleeve describes this as 'Edited from a perfromance that utilized live mixing and processing of field recordings, instrumentation and piezoelectric ...view item »

Fool's Gold
Leave No Trace

This is one of those albums that is great at a party, or great for just lounging around. It always puts me in a great mood. I play it for my friends and while it's playing in the background they always ask who it is. The sound is very Afro pop/middle eastern but enveloped in the roots of rock 'n roll. "The Dive" and "Tel Aviv" are my favourite t...view item »

Smersh
M Appeal

Smersh was a creation of the two talents Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard. Smersh went through their time in the 80's/90's with one vision: no live performances, a sh*t tonne of albums. And with this in their minds, they succeeded. In their period, around 30 di...view item »

Suicide Squad: The Album

The Suicide Squad movie has an all-star line-up of actors playing an all-star line-up of superhero characters, so it makes sense to give it an all-star line-up of artists on the soundtrack.

B-Ball Joints (Low Jack)
Blue Boy Joints

Blue Boy Joints is the twelve-track release from B-Ball Joints. A complete and utter dissection of techno that has been glued back together with absolute menace and disorder. Although it might take some time for your brain to readjust to the new noises that it’s hearing, give it time and collapse into the madness....view item »

Slow Club
Paradise

Slow Club are here with their sophomore album. This time round they sound a bit more polished than last time, it seems to me like an album that was written in the studio. This is quite slick and catchy boy/girl indie pop. The girl does most of the singing actually. Sometimes it's quite synth-heavy, sometimes it's more jangly. At one point t...view item »

Lymes
Goodbye Bangkok

'Goodbye Bangkok' is the debut album from Hull based group Lymes.

It was here that that...view item »

JAWS
Stress Test

Performance art style sonics from this L.A. resident. It uses slithery, skronky electronics, confessional narrative and impromptu stratagems in an effort to brim the optics, confuse the mind and engage the body. Beginning as an exercise in speed and personality, “Stress Test” i...view item »

Jor-El
Tilted Reality EP

Jor-El presents us with three noticeably cold but colourful house tracks, evoking the deeper more emotional end of Sasha's record box.

Casiokids
Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen

With a name like Casiokids you know what to expect. It's like Twilight Sad calling themselves Noisy, Shoegazey Scottish Lads. This has the feel of a group who have heard that Postal Service album and thought 'we can do that' but forgetting to write any songs (thanks Mike for that analogy). ...view item »

Family Portrait
Dark Roast EP

I'm a big fan of Evan Brody's (a.k.a Family Portrait) self-titled debut on UP. To me it seemed like a coming of age record that paid homage to Brody's childhood influences whilst suggesting what may lie ahead for the artist. The Dark Roast EP differs greatly from his debut in that it seem...view item »

Love at Low Speed is an especially personal collection of songs by Abram Shook, delving into the end of an eleven year relationship with all the serious song-weight you’d expect from that.

Single Mothers
Our Pleasure

These are shouty. They make incendiary punk rock with snarly vocals spat out over the top. The singer sounds like Craig Finn's snottier nephew as the barrage of words cascades over some quite tuneful guitar rock.
