Assemblage Sessions 2

'Assemblage Sessions 2' has a blistering 21 cuts. Can I be bothered to list all the artists? Oh go on then but only because I love you. Dooey Decibel, Michael Johnson, Siesta, Conrad Newholmes, Kilowatts, Gutevolk, Bacanal Intruder, Otem Rellik, Populous, Color Cassette, Adventure Time, Nara, Caural and Tran...view item »

Zoo
Trilogi Peradaban

Exciting stuff from Dual Plover! A CD by Indonesia's Zoo called 'Trilogi Peradaban' is currently sodomising my ears, shitting bent, gibbering thrash-funk & ranting asylum-core out of our tired, whimpering speakers. They manage to make An Albatross sound relatively conservative with their elastic jazz rhythms and insane vocal gymnastics giving t...view item »

Man Man
Life Fantastic

This is one seriously cool album! The old adage of opening with one of your best songs signifying a poor album doesn't apply here. "Knuckle Down" is certainly the song of the album. However, the listing leads right into "Pirahnas Club," which is just as creative and fun yet a little more bouncy, then mellows with "Steak Knives" showing a differe...view item »

The Bigger Lovers
How I Learned To Stop Worrying

The Bigger Lovers were a short-lived power pop band from Philadelphia. “How I Learned To Stop Worrying” was their debut album from 2001. They released two albums after this before disbanding in 2005. This album does everything that you want a power pop album to do, really. In the vein of Velvet Crush...view item »

The Felice Brothers
Celebration, Florida

With Celebration, Florida, The Felice Brothers expand their songwriting talents to a sonic soundscape that is eerie, compelling, and ultimately beautiful. While you won't find country-tinged, cacophonous hell-raisers like "Whiskey in my Whiskey" or "Love Me Tenderly," the band of brothers and close friends have developed a sound that is entirely...view item »

Borngraber & Struver
Urlaub

Side A of this 12" is the epic sixteen and a half minute 'Reise' beginning with drones and a distant kick drum which then emerges to the fore and is the foundation for haunting keys and than big dramatic sweeping synthesizer swoop across the soundfield. A very nice gloomy and eerie ...view item »

Rubble
The Farewell Drugs

The full length album from Rubble is one that took seven years to make (the vinyl pressing plant was on hiatus). These guys sound like the scuzzy Texans that they are. They sound totally unhinged!!! They play a racket that is psychedelic rock to the extreme. There's none of that jangly sort of psychedelia here, though. Just very big men with...view item »

Peter Case
The Case Files

The Case Files is culled from Peter Case's enduring solo career and makes a fine sampler of his unique brand of rock 'n roll Americana. This disparate collection also makes a decent intro for those who've never had the pleasure; raw and unrefined as it may be at times, the album runs the gamut from spartan folk portraits of middle America to pol...view item »

Robert Piotrowicz/ Carl Michael Von Hausswolff
Split

Two creative and sound arty musicians are paired together here on this split LP from Poland’s Bocian label. Robert Piotrowicz gives us some intense analog synth-work, with overlapping pulse and tone action that’ll blast you. Carl Michael Von Hausswolff goes with subtle, quieter noise works that are a...view item »

Diva
The Glitter End

If I was the bass player in Pocahaunted I'd be well pleased. Because unlike being the bass player in most bands (I.E. a quiet introverted sensitive kind or a walking penis with wanky hair) you actually get a record deal! JUST FOR BEING THE BASS PLAYER OUTTA POCA-blinking-HAUNTED!! OK, she's from L.A. and every fucker gets a deal in L.A. maaan......view item »

A lull
Confetti

After releasing their fantastic EP Ice Cream Bones, Chicago's A Lull were looking to master their unique sound with the release of Confetti. What has been accomplished through this album is a sound that reflects Sigur Rós with an urban dominant drum and bass feel. Confetti starts strong and ends very well. The scope of ev...view item »

Elika
Snuggle Bunnies

Well I was reading the press release for this and it goes on about synths, field recordings, sound installations etc and I was expecting a right load of "beard". What I did get was a total pop album, the vocals of which sound reminiscent of Madonna (especially the 'Ray of Light' era). Listening to it with headphones on though I'm hearing a lot m...view item »

Urge Overkill
Rock&Roll Submarine

Urge Overkill were responsible for one of the best records of the '90s with their album "Saturation" which contained classics such as "Sister Havana" and "Positive Bleeding". They also shot to unlikely fame with their cover of Neil Diamond's "Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon" which featured on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. It would be fair to say that...view item »

Nodzzz
Innings

The type of record that could only be made by bespectacled Americans wearing checked shirts and blind if not for very thick horn rimmed glasses. Nodzzz find themselves on the end of the lineage that goes something like Jonathan Richman, Beat Happening, K records et al, Moldy Peaches. Its chirpy, strummy indie rock that manages to be very ec...view item »

Thisquietarmy
Vessels

Eric Quach records under a number of different monikers but he's possibly more famous for Thisquietarmy (now known as TQA for review purposes because my fingers are tired). His music tends to be quite varied as well (the big multi headed beast he is) as he treads from genre to genre like a tip-toeing Canadian doom pixie. This album is kinda doom...view item »

Warm Brains
Old Volcanoes

Oh god I got a record by an ex-Testicle. That's not the moniker you really want is it? Maybe you should choose your band names more carefully chap. Warm Brains is marginally better, mind, & this isn't that Dave Haynes, the one with the spectacles & the London hair. But he is called Rory! They can't win these Icic-lads can they? I really ...view item »

Mark McGuire
A Young Persons Guide

This young chap and Dustin Wong are like the new gods of guitar nowadays. Sod writing blazing lead parts and eschewing songwriting in a traditional sense. All you need is a load of delay pedals, a shaggy hair do and a laptop and off you go, right to the top of some poncy magazine /online blogs "best of" lists. This guy play mainly guitar in Emer...view item »

Hoor Paar- Kraat
The Eureka Tapes

The cover on this thing is well early Nurse with Wound. I can't even work out what's going on there but there's half an axe, something in a suit and some books. The back of the sleeve features the something in a suit which has half melted. It's appealing to me but only cos I don't understand it and want to. This comprises three hard to find...view item »

North Sea Navigator
Among The Dead City

From what little info I can cobble together it seems as though this charmingly arigato-pak'd album was devised as a wee bit of a concept effort with a post-Soviet Eastern Bloc sort of feel, something which titles like 'Die Hunde', 'Gestalt', 'Honecker', 'Stasi' and 'Mielke' give a bit of a clue to I guess. Stylistically this seems to be split betwe...view item »

The Donkeys
Born With Stripes

There's so much music in the indie world that it can become overwhelming trying to keep up. This little outfit deserves some attention. The Donkeys have that Sterling Morrison - low-fi - Luna thing going that is a nice antidote to the hyperactive and very overproduced stuff we're hearing in the indie universe now. Nice to hear a band of guys pla...view item »

Jookabox
The Eyes of the Fly

We liked this Jookabox CD, at least a couple of us did here at the diversely staffed & attitude-rich compendium of rickety towers that is Norman. It seems only people with really stupid names make good music these days. Like Badger Flour & Horse Goblin. They're my new bands. But they're not as fun as David 'Moose' Adamson's project which...view item »

The Wombats
The Modern Glitch

The Wombats are really good at coming up with catchy tunes and lyrics. Most of the songs have an infectious chorus. Vocalist Matthew Murphy has an intriguing and very pronounced Liverpudlian accent and his songs are lyrically complex, melancholic, self-deprecating and often-times nerdy. There are only a few songs that just didn't quite do it for...view item »

The Cubby Creatures
Who Remembers Kathy Barra

From the US of A we have a 10"/CD EP by a band called Cubby Creatures which is lovely. Sounds quite a lot like The Delgados. Classy sounding indie pop with strings, tunes and panache. What more would you need on a friday afternoon? It's called Who Remembers Kathy Barra...view item »

Hoggboy
Upside Down

Hoggboy release a new single of catchy guitar indie rock type gear. More poppy than previous outings and it reminds me of the whole Britpop thing from years ago which I don't think is a good thing if I have to be honest. Upside Down is on 7" and CD...view item »

Colour of Fire
A Pearl Necklace For Her Majesty

Speaking of grey here comes Colour of Fire (no of course fire isn't grey  - is it?). Colour of Fire do a brand of shouty emo rock that fits in with the Lamacq grey slabs of dullard rock but this is slightly off kilter and well produced. There's lots of heavy riffing and people getting very angry on the mic. Decent noisy, a...view item »

Jason Forrest (Donna Summer)
Lady Fantasy EP

Jason Forrest is a canny man. Some of his sonic experiments in deconstructed & re-spliced AOR splatter terror have left me with clenched teeth & a poorly mind. He's sure capable of a double-wrong or two on occasion. 'Lady Fantasy' E.P. is , however, initially a gentler beast. Opening with a sort of homage to Blade Runner or somet...view item »

Lmd64
The Bombshell EP

We've also got a jazzy breaks E.P. in by LMD64 which once again may appeal to the Ninja Tune/Vibert set. Once again the Corrugated Tunnel feller shoehorns a mix on here....view item »

Harrisons
Blue Note

Really baffled about bands such as Harrisons. They sound like one of those hopelessly endearing 1 hit wonder barroom outfits of the late 70's that still get an airing from Smashey & Nicey but with a bit of C86 indie jangle. I can hear Boomtown Rats era pub rock, Wah, The La's & a kind of working mans club eth...view item »

The Mighty Roars
Sellotape

I've just scared the pants of Ant with my hilarious Irish accent pretending Daft Punk were from Ireland. Ho ho... it's a barrel of laughs here. THE MIGHTY ROARS have a new single out One Little Indian which is a fast and furious number making me think it's going to appeal to fans of Yeah Yeah Yeahs...view item »

Malajube
Trompe De L'oeil

First up is Malajube with Trompe-Loeil which is a chaotic and uplifting pop LP from French speaking Montreal. If you can get into the french rock lyrics its actually got some nice musical moments with subtle and sophisticated chord progressions. Their friendship with Arcade Fire is evident on certain points on the record with the anthemic cresendo ...view item »

Filkoe
Lost Zoo Keys And The Animal Spirits That Haunt Them

Scott Da Ros. Great name, great guy. But it's not his brand of dark, brooding stumble-hop I'm talkin' 'bout today but 3 CD releases on or associated with his fine label Endemik. First up is a bloody great work by Seattle's FILKOE with the delightful title of 'Lost Zoo Key...view item »


Sotones Vol II

Compilation albums are always worth a good listen. There's always gonna be some stuff on there you're not gonna like but generally there's always a few tracks which appeal in some sort of way. Sotones Vol II is the name of this particular comp and it's their first label sampler. Yeah I didn't get the whole volume 2 thing either but I figure there's...view item »

Buk Buk Bigups
Buk Buk Bigups

Yeah! This is theeeee SHIT! Wonky, druggy new-wave disco funk. Gimme gimme gimme. This S/T effort is decidedly spilling with odd flavas. A wired, itchy, possessed motorik workout with some proper groovy old organ and tripped out guitar licks all over the shop - this is what a hybrid of Stranger Son of WB, LCD Soundsystem, an almost comatose Do...view item »

Hounds Of Hate
Hounds of Hate

This lot make me think of Kate Bush which is always a good thing. I love thinking of Kate Bush. She's the friend I never had. The cover of this record is a load of wonky ole snakes which is quite eye-catching and it gives you an idea of the wonkyness within. This is a deep record. The sound is slow and heavy, there's samples everywhere (one...view item »

Automato
Walk Into The Light

Automato -a 12"on Dim Mak. You get 5 versions of the came song for your hard earned cash. Its reasonable hip hop. Again its fairly uninspiring stuff....view item »

About Group
Start And Complete

This is a collaborative effort between Poindexter from Hot Chip, Charles Heyward out of This Heat, a Spring Heel Jack and another bloke. Poindexter sings and plays lovely sounding Wurlitzer and Hammond organs, backed up by Hayward's very busy drumming. The effect is something akin to an early Steely Dan practice session. The sound is very raw an...view item »

The View
Which Bitch

On first listen I was a little surprised and slightly disappointed. It definitely has some of the "typical" View sounds but it had a few surprises. Once I sat down in a room (and not in my car) with the lyrics sheets, I was amazed at how great this really was. The songwriter is quite talented and the way he can write such diverse songs and cleve...view item »

Shearing Pinx
Weaponry

Shearing Pinx have a great album cover on Weaponry. It's a pastel print of a lion coming out of the darkness and the lion is trying to swipe an 18th century fop off his bicycle! It could be an 18th century fop, or a member of some urchin rock band.. Who knows,you never see them at the same gig. The record's a beast too, a really filthy sound that s...view item »

Nadja/ Ovo
The Life And Death Of A Wasp

No press info for this one but it 'dunt really matta' as i'm pretty familiar with the artists presented here. Nadja are the duo of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff who kick out two 'movements' here entitled 'A wasp flying around the sugar jar' and 'Trapped in the Jar' that appear to be the musical narrative to the story of a fly's short lived ...view item »

Adam Haworth Stephens
We Live On Cliffs

I'm a Two Gallants fan and was really curious to hear what Adam's first solo album would sound like without Tyson on the drums and in the larger band format. It's definitely a departure from the Adam Stephens we are used to, but I'm totally sold on this sound. The way he crafts each song and builds them up is amazing. He even solos on one of the...view item »

Instra:mental
Resolution 653

Instra:mental are a solid duo who aren't afraid to sonically diversify and on their debut "artist" album you're taken on a stylistically rich journey, traversing their knowledge of rich, fluid & tough-edged production techniques. As a primer i'd say 'User' is forged from the bones of tough, rhythmic electro, the superb "8" takes on a zippy m...view item »

Land of Bingo
Bottle It In

I keep getting asked to go on holiday in Wales but I have so far refused, my reluctance based upon two childhood incidents - once because when I went on holiday there when I was 10, it rained solidly for two weeks. The second that Malcolm Pugh my Welsh near-neighbour and owner of a white poodle continuously stopped me from playing football in th...view item »

Sharp Ends
Sharp Ends

Blooming heck, this sounds cool as. Cool as what? Just As. That is the coolest can be. Fast, scuzzy & wired robot garage rock that owes as much to The Mummies as it does Chrome & post-punk. It's got that trashy lo-fi edge that I love but tons of great hooks too and a startling spindly alien feel which makes them sound downright otherworl...view item »

Timber Timbre
Creep On Creepin' On

T.T a.k.a Kirk Taylor returns with a second collection of cosy mis-shapen pop recordings on Full Time Hobby. Anyone familiar with T.T will be aware of Taylor's rather strange take on a classic crooner vocal style. It's part Roy Orbison, part Richard Hawley fighting the power of a couple of strong valiums he consumed earlier in the day. 'Creep On...view item »

Sun Circle
Sun Circle

This is the work of Zach Wallace and Greg Davis (who runs Autumn Records)The first side of the record is full on vocal chants and drones to assist you in transcending your failed human shell. They layer them up real nice too. Brett is reminded of a La Monte young piece while Business Lady speaks of didgeredoos. The flip is way more minimal with lot...view item »

2562
Fever

This guy has got an undeniable amount of funk. His productions are really deep & sublime - they strut & preen through the neon stained city streets at night. Some of his best work has a faint similarity to Scuba but I think I prefer the Dutch numerically monikered one's productions as there's a bit more consistency and I really like the ...view item »

Adventure
Lesser Known

Adventure is the work of Baltimore resident and Wham City associate Benny Boeldt. Not familiar with his 2008 self-titled debut but from what I've heard of 'Lesser Known' I'm confident that this lad's got the skills. Boeldt looks to 80's music and video game culture for his influences and, as a result, 'Lesser Known' sounds like a retro-futurist ...view item »

Dreamend
So I Ate Myself, Bite by Bite

Dreamend are a Chicago based outfit featuring members of obscure synth-o's Black Moth Super Rainbow with assistance from members of The Appleseed Cast. There's also a little production assistance courtesy of Black Moth dude Tobacco and mixing duties are taken care of by John Congleton of The Paper Chase. So that's the credentials out of the way!...view item »

Anne-James Chaton
Evenements 09

I'm quite fond of the Raster-Noton sound. These days that often stands more for sparse, metronomic techno with very minimal melodic phrases and a distinctive clinical sheen which, whilst not exactly forming floor destroying tunes as such, certainly offers up some delectable forms of hypnotic rhythym. This CD does not contain music to play in a c...view item »

The Human League
Credo

Credo is not The Human League's best work but it is also not their worst. It falls somewhere in the middle. At first listen, I did not like Credo, but with repeated listening, I began to hear the hooks. The production isn't nearly top notch as Secrets is, but it isn't horrendous. This is a great album from Human League, more modern but matured. ...view item »

Nasdaq
Dead Peasants

Now these guys sound pretty cool, albeit play music that absolutely screams 1999. You know, The Redneck Manifesto, Billy Mahonie, El Hombre Trajeado & Reynolds - that sparse instrumental post-rock stuff. This CD is forged from a single 27-minute long jam that has some nice intertwined guitars, jazzy inflections & steady quietly dynamic d...view item »

Ratatosk
Archipelago Vol. 1

The Origami master returns with another lovely CD in custom handmade packaging. What we have here are soul stirring classical pieces along with semi-improvised tracks. Using Pedal Steel, Zither and layered guitars Ratatask's world remains melancholy throughout. It must be said that this chap Rhodri Viney has much to say as he channels his hopes ...view item »

Raymond Dijkstra
L'opus L'H

This chap is exploring the depths of sound through improvisation using a minimal setup of harmonium, scraping metal and glass. He gets some weird and strange sounds going and the overall effect is kinda surreal. There is also some tuba and strings making an appearance. At various points I'm reminded of some Nurse With Wound material and also Eli...view item »

Heatmiser
Dead Air

Heatmiser on Dead Air strike me as a jaded ballplayer nailing fifteen machine-thrown balls in a row out of the park. Each song is a loud, thundering crack of pop-smeared beauty. The blurry guitar work is spot on, but Smith and Gust's fat and gritty fuzztones add a punk garnish to a pop platter. It's Elliott Smith...view item »

Drums Off Chaos & Jens-Uwe Beyer
Drums Off Chaos & Jens-Uwe Beyer

Really enjoyed this Magazine series so far. The 'Cologne Tapes' super group affair was a particularly appealing listen and from what I've heard so far this collaboration between Drums Off Chaos & Jens-Uwe Beyer is another winner. Drums of Chaos is a loose collective of percussionists founded by Jaki Liebezeit of CAN and this is their first p...view item »

The Chapman Family
Burn Your Town

I've seen a couple of interviews with these lads which have made me chuckle, sound like a canny bunch. Having read one of them being angry about almost everything, ever has made me want to like their music. It's going to be a bit of a struggle. It's angsty rock music that sounds like a cross between an early, angry Maximo Park and a furious Twil...view item »

Starfucker
Reptilians

Band leader Josh Hodges has stated that he wanted to see how big a band could get with a name like “Starfucker”. With the release of the group’s third album Reptilians we could hopefully see them achieve more fame than Hodges though. Reptilians continues with the synth/pop musings that Starfucker are oh so good at producing. Le...view item »

Psyclones
Different Thinking People

'For Fans Of: Chrome, Devo, Cabaret Voltaire, Ralph Records, and SF Artpunk'? Sounds pure hard body. Count I in for some o' dat. To be honest, from what I've heard of this so far I barely need to add anything to that first line.. You've got your clangy, trebly basslines, your primitivist cut 'n' paste surrealist touches, your Residents-style pla...view item »

Aspec(t)
Waspnest

I had to be the man that forced Business Lad(y) to don his/her personal headphones in protest this Wed lunchtime, didn't I. This sensitive colleague of mine quite despises left-field sound-art and much of the experimental noise genre. I quite enjoy it but wouldn't take it home to meet me mum. Or anyone else's mum for that matter. This is pretty ...view item »

Downliners Sect
Dangerous Ground

I am happy to say that Dangerous Ground is a good effort to say the least. More than proves this long-running R&B / freakbeat ensemble is still very much able to deliver the goods. CD cover for this piece was done by Art Wood (R. I. P.) who was the vocalist for the short-lived R&B / freakbeat band, The Artwoods, as well as Ron Wood's bro...view item »

Mirrors
Lights and Offerings

I happened across Mirrors by accident, listening to an indie label's online station. On Lights and Offerings there isn't a song I would skip over on a long drive and that is saying something. The music builds and swirls and takes you on a ride, while keeping your feet tapping, and your heart happy. It's old school and new school in the best poss...view item »

Beady Eye
Different Gear, Still Speeding

After the break up of Oasis, everyone knew it would be the last we heard of the two Gallaghers. Yet this album has its few moments such as the belting track 'Four Letter Word', this album truly lacks any form of forward motion. it's an extremely one-paced heavily Beatles influenced album. For me it is the worst full...view item »

The Luyas
Too Beautiful To Work

Debut album from artsy Canadian experimenters who create gorgeously strange, echo-ish space age faerie noise dream pop; where tender fragility is tied to an exploratory sense of adventure by angelic strings of wonderment. These are otherworldly forays into sparkly star-float realms of mischievous Elvin innocence. Includes members from ...view item »

Dev79
Distinct Stance

A mighty strange E.P. from Dev 79 on Zenapolae. It says fucked up electronics on the label and offers up 6 tracks of distorted slo-mo hip hop with a really interesting array of shades & effects. Quite sinister in places. Can't quite place any direct comparison with anything but It's one of the most ear...view item »

Triptyque de l’oeil

Am super pleased to announce we are now stocking a few of the latest releases on this fine sound art/ experimental label.

For me to attempt to articulate the ...view item »

On a friday I can't get enough of that golden nectar, I pour it down my throat then wash the whole delicious brew down with a glorious piece of meat from the big spinning stick. Anyway here he is, the other Mr Lager on Various Production. On the A side we have an atmospheric dark dubstep tune with thumping kick d...view item »

Red Stars Over Tokyo
Helen In The Mirror

The next thing I have for you is a long playing record by Red Stars Over Tokyo. This is on the Hot Hair label of Belgium. Speaking of Hot Hair someone told me the other day that they knew someone who used to burn their hair rather than cut it. Is this normal? I would have thought that a scissor would be easier.Anyway this is entitled 'Helen in the ...view item »

Red Stars Over Tokyo
Not Moving

Red Stars Over Tokyo return with a new selection of minimalist drones and ambient compositions on the Hothair label. What can i say about this guy? Previously he's been known to touch on neo-classical type stuff whilst occasionally drifting into minimalist techno. Now he's in it purely for the electronic drones, crafting dreamy sleep inducing to...view item »

Towers of Sparks

Now for some Austrian free-post-classical-rock-jazz. Oh yeah baby. You know you want it. Right in yer ears, all the way. Easy does it! There! How do you feel? What? Your blinking brain hurts? Oh dear, I think I pushed it in too far. Now let's see, if I can just ease it out a tad.....there we go! How's that? Better you say? You like the violin? W...view item »

Vvolves
Vvolves EP

Apparently Ant used to "get given" all the Welsh bands because he "understood them" more. This was always amusing as he'd sit in his little chair, head in hands, trying to make sense of some feeble jangly dirge with wet lyrics whilst we all rolled around laughing. This may have only happened once or twice but it was so funny it may well have hap...view item »

The Sidewinders
Flatfoot Hustlin'

Jazzman continue the eternal quest for the ultimate rarities with their 'Holy Grail' series. This time around they've uncovered a rarely heard gem of an LP from Canadian (?)

Byrds of Paradise
Teenage Symphonies

You can't spell your band name like that, guyz! Been done like. However, I, Judge of All That is Right and Good in the World, will let you off because I'm finding that your record's quite tasty. It's definitely one of the finest examples of scuzzy, super lo-fi garage noise-pop that I've heard in a long time, effortlessly evoking many a classic b...view item »

MGH Plays Ulver

More industrial-tinged sound art & drone for you kiddies. Both tracks here are inspired by Ulver; bleak avant-rockers from Norway. I'm not sure what to say about this apart from the fact it's shrouded in a blackly evil veil and spits sonic acid at you at regular intervals whilst screeing, grumbling & hissing frequencies disturb & dis...view item »

The Phantom Family Halo
Music From Italian T.V.

Going into this as a total virgin to The Phantom Family Halo's world I'm not sure what to make of the first couple of minutes and I'm certainly not confident about rattling off a load of shite telling you what this album's like because it sort of seems as though it could go just about anywhere and by the end might have completely contradicted wh...view item »

I remember us getting a 7" in by Terror Bird a while back and thinking 'that's some nice Gothic infused pop music'. Well, Terror Bird return with a full on debut LP thanks to the lads at Vendetta and Night People ('night night people people...'). It's been said before, and i think it's fair to repeat the claim that Terror Bird's stuff is basical...view item »

Alex Durlak
Catalyst

This is part 4 in the Rural Route series of 3" discs. These things are a bit crazy as they're 3" CD's in nice foldy out business but they include a download code? Not seen many CDs that come with downloads. I guess 3"'s aren't as friendly to Macs so maybe that's why? Who knows... It's novel and I'm here to tell you that this is happening right h...view item »

Jason Urick
Husbands

Husbands shows off more of the beauty in Jason Urick's cold ambient leanings. His solo debut under his own name after work with WZT Hearts, it's an attempt at creating accessible "pop" music in a framework of droning fog. Further proof of Baltimore's thriving experimental scenes and the strangely affectionate sounds that can come f...view item »

Big Troubles

Happy days. We got a big old delivery of new beach flavours from the ever reliable Olde English Spelling Bee label. First up it's Big Troubles debut LP 'Worry'.

Tracks
Everything Judged By Success Alone

'Everything Judged By Success Alone' is a CD by Tracks who is Oliver Griffin that used to be in knives. It opens with 'Starts With Cans' which has a vocal sample narrative of an alcoholic who killed his wife and kids drink driving. Depressing stuff which sets the tone for the rest of the album. It strikes me as a highly personal record. It's one ...view item »
