Celer & Machinefabriek
Greetings From

Two drone geniuses get together and improvise their way through a bunch of live performances, then set their exemplary work down for Greetings From. Celer and Machinefabriek used their improvised, free form approach to playing together as a way of producing the strangest results poss...view item »

Concessionaires
Artificial Interface

Brad Rose (owner of Digitalist records and member of The North Sea, Charlatan, Altar Eagle) and Pete Fosco (Early Tunnels, Wasteland Jazz Ensemble) have been getting together to knock up tapes for a while now.

Cursillistas
Observe Ember Weeks

Nice looking record, this. They've all got a total handmade feel to them with the screenprinted covers on thick white paper, and the record's an intimate and personal little thing too, with lots of distant echoey guitars and vocals and some drone and chunter soundscape passages in between...view item »

Excavacations
Object Permanence

You can always depend on Weird Forest to hit you hard with summat super left-field and oddball, be it the madness of Yo-Yo Expressway Diet or the ambient cunning of Lil' B's beat-less synth record 'Rain In England'. Guess you could call the label's agenda post-everything 21st century po...view item »

Com Truise
Iteration

As far as underground East-coast electronic producers go, very few are currently enjoying a greater purple patch than Com Truise. Amongst his lustrous beasts and glugging basslines, is a geniune soulfulness that isnt' easy to find within the hoards of modern day electronica. Iteration is his lates...view item »

Tidal & Rambutan
Tidal & Rambutan

On this very limited split LP we’ve got a long drone from Tidal (aren’t they a rock band? Not this one anyway) and a long drone from Rambutan. The Tidal one is quite new-agey, concordant, shimmering stuff that goes nowhere slowly and pleasantly. The Rambutan one has more new-a...view item »

Philippe Petit
Eugenie

Dark lord of weirdness Philippe Petit’s got a new one again. I’m sure he only just did a new one but that’s how these outsider types work sometimes isn’t it? Anyway, on the first side of these ten inch...view item »

Fugenn & The White Elephants
Archetype Zero

I keep listening to this over and over again, not just because I like it but because I'm so easily distracted I'm considering going for ADD therapy. Then the Ethernet cable broke, this after I laughed and pointed at Phil struggling with a couple at work this week -karma you say? Thank the...view item »

Teen Daze
All Of Us, Together

You just know what to expect from Teen Daze before you hear it. Firstly that awful name, secondly the Washed Out-aping sleeve artwork and within 30 seconds the...view item »

Gaiser
III

Stop what you're doing; Gaiser is back. The US techno producer returns with III, another typically progressive piece of gloomy and throbbing club-ready dance music. The album opens as it means to go on with 'Wirefire' - a galactic and synth rammed soup of vibrant electronica. Above all this piece ...view item »

Mark Broom
One Sound / Myth EP

Legendary UK techno figurehead Mark Broom briefly wanders from the side of long-time music buddy James Ruskin to deliver some pure techno to your sub bins via EPM music. The first of 3 upcoming EPs, One Sound / Myth promises production stripped back to its bass-laden ...view item »

Blanche Blanche Blanche
Papas Proof

I remember enjoying these guys’ last one on Night People so I’ve got high hopes for this one here. It opens with a crazy bit of multi-vocal counterpoint which is quite poppy but things soon get synthy as it turns i...view item »

MayMay
And So I Place You In The Setting Sun

This band MayMay are the brainchild of Laurel Simmons and Heather Broderick’s doing some cello on here and it was mastered by Nils Frahm so I think you get the idea - they’re part of “that lot”, stars with...view item »

Hand To Man Band
You Are Always On Our Minds

On this record multiple earth humans from famous bands make music which is a little more explorative and challenging than they can get away with in their primary projects. We’ve got Lord Mike of Watt on bass with a keys dude ...view item »

Signs of the Silhouette
Signs of the Silhouette

I can’t figure out a lot about this duo, but they’re doing some kind of guitar and drum performance art where they improvise along to projected visuals. Well I think that’s what they do from reading their somewhat cryptic press release. Phil says he thinks they wear craz...view item »

WANDA GROUP
Piss Fell Out Like Sunlight

Short review for our time on this earth being short so i have to be quick. This record moves everywhere. Some dark places and then a slight piece of light goes through the dark area and turns everything around but then back we are left alone. we fall out of the womb and sing a song. this piece of music (both sides) could be for all people that s...view item »

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. Bet they are a blast live but until they come to your town it could be a good idea to shout along to the vinyl.  ...view item »

Alex Durlak
Seconds

This is a beautiful looking thing. It’s on one-sided white vinyl with a story extract printed on the other side, housed in a fancy weird sleeve with one translucent side so you can read it. Very classy. Anyway, it’s on Damian Valles’s Komino imprint and it...view item »

I O
Flamenco Abstractions

I’m generally happy with anything that makes my life easier. A chair for example. This morning I was moving stock around the stock room, on my feet the whole time. After two hours I could think of nothing other than a nice sit down. Having found a chair, the sit down was just immense! I ...view item »

Eric Copeland
Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect

Hey look, it’s everyone’s favourite Avey Tare collaborator Eric Copeland making another record about rude punctuation. I swear I just saw that pair of brackets flip me off. This 2LP hamper of dancey delights is out on LIES, the home of left of the field house/techno musicks. Courtesy, Profe...view item »

Kuroma
Four Songs for Fifty States

Kuroma are led by Hank Sullivant, ex-MGMT touring guitarist, and can often be seen on tour with the psychedelic pop group.  This EP, creatively titled Four Songs features, you guessed it, four songs which show off the raw, unpolished and yet strangely tight tracks from the band. Clear vinyl 10" on Bigger Splash Records...view item »

Let's Say We Did
Hello Creatures

Remember the ‘90s? God, I do. Amongst some amazingly brilliant stuff a lot of the bands from then were rubbish weren’t they? Utter Garbage. We must remember this amongst the clamour to re-listen, re-work and re-issue all things early ‘90s. But that doesn’t stop a whole host of young pretenders being deeply in thrall to th...view item »

Laughing Eye Weeping Eye
Beway

“Laughing Eye Weeping Eye transports you to another place, perhaps....... to a magick ceremony with fire-breathing serpents.” Bleats the press release. But why would I want to go there when I could sit at home and watch ‘The Voice’ on TV? Ok then, if I really have to. More entertainingly, on the back sleev...view item »

Net Shaker
I'm So Cold

This is one of those records where you can clearly identify influences and yet the finished product is entirely their own. 'I'm So Cold' is the debut LP from Los Angeles duo Erik Frydenborg and Ernest Gibson and what a glorious mess it is. From the primitive/ crude but functional drum machine rhythms to the stuttering ...view item »

Puzzle Muteson
Theatrics

Isle of Wight singer-songwriter Terry "Puzzle Muteson" Magson returns this week with a second LP of wistful sadpop, a follow-up to 2011's 'En Garde'. This has 10 of his own songs and a cover of New Order's 'True Faith', all presented in impeccably understated arrangements which...view item »


Feral Grind

The second release for Ali Wells’s (Perc) Submit label is a 4 track 12” and 11 track CD. Submit seems to be dedicated to exploring the more “experimental” noise/ industrial end of the techno spectrum, the first 12” on the imprint was Perc reworks of ...view item »

Sandro Perri
Spaced Out

Sandro Perri’s ‘Impossible Spaces’ was an absolute revelation, a stunning mix of Jeff Buckley-meets-Arthur Russell indie-soul and loungey jazz arrangements with a silky languorous feel which has since withstood many, many plays on the home stereo. On this 12” three of his tracks are give...view item »

Lo-Fang
#88

A taster from Lo-Fang’s album on 4AD, Blue Film. Matthew Hemerlein is a classically trained musician who has been inspired by his travels from his home in Maryland to Cambodia and Bali. He plays all the instruments on the album leading to a rich sound taking in everything from drums to piano and cello. On 12&rdquo...view item »

White Haus
White Haus EP

White Haus is the alter-ego of ex X-Wife chappie Joao Vieira, who’s pulling no punches on this debut EP of hard-hitting post-punk house action. The obvious comparison here would be LCD Soundsystem, keeping a chaotic live vibe going with dense polyrhythms and cheeky neon synths and ice cool spoken vocal...view item »

Ski Lodge
Big Heart

The difference between the last track I played on the Surf City album and the first track on this album could probably only be heard by people with dog ears. Its more poppy, indie, surfy stuff with heavy nods towards Best Coast and the type of chirpy upbeat simple indie pop that seems to be de rigueur these days....view item »

RG Lowe
Slow Time

I can't actually believe we are selling music like this. What are we ..like 105? This would be too polite even for Radio 2's pensioner-friendly playlist. This is quite similar to the Slow Dancer LP but at least that had a few 'Astral Weeks' flourishes but this is just tediously dull soul-pop-lite and reminds me ...view item »

Slow Dancer
In A Mood

Why would you call a band Slow Dancer? What is it in either of those two words that would make you want to listen to it? First up  - 'slow'  - that would bring to mind something not that interesting. What good thing has ever been Slow...Eric 'slowhand' Clapton? Everything slow is...view item »


Open Water

Hand stamped and numbered, strictly limited to 320 copies. The ep’s opening salvo comes courtesy of Killawatt, who brings a dense combination of driving force and technical intricacy whilst Ipman imbues his version with urgent percussion and sense of cavernous tension. The second half of the release sees the debut of Osiris Music l...view item »

Stephen John Kalinich
A World Of Peace Must Come

Oddball 1960's poetry record from renowned Beach Boys lyricist performing some of his very own super idealistic poetry under hazy lights. If you like spoken word stuff about world peace etc then A World of Peace Must Come is the record for you. The main draw for Beach Boys ...view item »

Gang Wizard
Important Picnic

Gang Wizard are not a real gang, or even a real wizard, but a band. There are five of them, three share a surname, they've been going for ages in one form or another and they make up their songs as they go along. Yeah, completely off the cuff, bash 'em out and see what happens style. It's brave, it's difficult, it's not always fun to listen to, ...view item »

Usurper
What Time Is It? 1000 Bux.

Lying awake at 5.30 each morning certainly gives you stuff to think about. For example,  what is the middle spike bit of a record player called? (A spindle, apparently). Is it possible to invent a band worse and more annoying than Foals? (No). Do music writers by law have to pretend to like Vampire Weekend? (It seems so). And finally how do...view item »

Kemback
Carduelis

Geoff Wright - otherwise known as Kemback - occupies himself with many different professions (violinist, teacher, producer, to name a few). Kemback's history is fairly strong; having released records with features from people like DJ Bone, and recording with labels like Omena Records, he has built quite a name for himself. This vinyl is another ...view item »

Sterac Electronics
Things to Think About (Album Sampler)

Steve Rachmad has been a leader of Dutch techno for what's now decades. Breaking out in 1996, he has stayed at the front since, pushing Detroit techno in the Netherlands. Probably his most notable projects being Sterac and Parallel 9, the lesser known Sterac Electronics tak...view item »

Molly Nilsson
Imaginations

Sunshine in black and white. That’s what Molly Nilsson’s music tends to sound like to me; bright, beaming and full of colour, I imagine her downtempo pop songs to be disguising a whole spectrum of the rainbow behind the gray scale. ‘Imaginations’, her new record for Night School, makes few upgrades on her signature sound,...view item »

Deca
Mass

Deca’s music has been quietly doing its thing in the underground of Italy’s electronic experimental music scene for years. This album of Roland synthesiser explorations dates back to the late 80’s, when it was released only in a very limited cassette edition. Mass is full of the dark pulse and throb of...view item »

Pinch

The first release from Pinch’s Cold Recordings label for a year see the boss back at the helm.

Manie Sans Délire
Untitled

The Helena Hauff-approved Manie Sans Délire bring their dungeon-dwelling EBM techno to the June label with Untitled, on double vinyl 12” and 7”. This set was played and recorded live, giving the harsh drums and ice cold arpeggios a loose, improvisatory feel, with p...view item »

Transistor
The Horde

Franck Vigroux and Ben Miller present their Transistor project on new album The Horde. They met in New York in 2009 and now the scuzzy, abrasive electronics of Vigroux meet Miller's huskily irascible voice for a potently furious sound that recalls the collaborative works of Mika Vainio and Alan Vega. Their live sho...view item »

Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else
Enjoy The Great Outdoors

Remember when there was all those Chicago bands. You know the sort that would always have Doug Scharin on drums? I'm thinking of Rex and that lot. Well Spencer Radcliffe and Everyone Else have something of that sound in them. They play laid back country ish music which has a mathy edge. Tunes like 'Breezy' have the inso...view item »

Addictive TV

Shelly Manne
Daktari

Upheld by a sprawling and eclectic range of worldly instrumentation is Daktari - West Coast drummer Shelly Manne's perfect TV series companion. The record still stands as a global fusion pioneer, and is cut from the best of electro and afro-funk. Percussive stabs and the use of the marimba br...view item »

Goldring / Thomson
For All #1: Nines

Enablers guitarists Kevin Thomson and Joe Goldring go head-to-head on this one-sided 12" on Lancashire & Somerset, which comes beautifully presented in a two-colour 12"x12" booklet which explains that the pieces here developed from a residency at the Marin Headlands Center For The Arts "to develop musical ideas...view item »

Jesse Ruins
Fractured Holy Symmetry

'A Film' was a record by shoegazing, pop dreaming, electronica-tinkering band Jesse Ruins, and 'Fractured Holy Symmetry' is a companion piece for all those who loved it, featuring remixes by artists such as Soft Metals, Naliza Moo, Radio Friends and Diane Halls, as well as six new Jesse Ruins tracks. A varied offering of noise and synt...view item »

The Gamecock
All Right, Hen?

Formed in 2010, Gamecock are a two piece comprised of Stuart Arnot (Smear Campaign/Total Vermin Tapes) and Nick Mitchell (Chalaque/Golden Lab Records). ‘All Right, Hen?’ is a reissue put out by Golden Lab because neither of them had a copy of either the original cassette release on Gary War’s Fixed Identity or the subsequent Be...view item »

Big French
Stone Fish

A second full-length album of the strange and personal weird-pop vision conjured up by Quentin Moore and the rest of the Big French crew. Stone Fish’s sixteen tracks are tight but wobbly, pirouetting quickly between different high-technique guitar parts, grooves and melodic ideas. Plus keen exploi...view item »

Appleblim
Conch Shell Motives

Since running Skull Disco and Apple Pips Bristolian Appleblim has moved to Berlin and had a few releases through R&S, Aus Music and Tempa merely hinting at things bubbling beneath the surface.

Wei Zhongle
Nu Trance

Proving that you can make ridiculous sound art without just doing free form noise all the time thank you very much. Thurston Moore, Wei Zhongle have created some slapstick jams that recall Animal Collective three albums in and Ponytail pre...view item »

Constellation Botsu
Constellation Botsu

‘Constellation Botsu’ is a sonic bombardment of ‘Botsu’ which are a sort of recorded music ‘track’ if you will, of terrifying, unhinged electronic experiments of which there are currently several hundred in existence. The Botsu considered most suitable for human consumption have been chosen for this record, ea...view item »

Life's Track
Smell of Sanctity

A garbled vocal loop, strings and muffled kicks open ‘Kicks Invasion’ before lunging into a rattling jacker with whip like claps and Hieroglyphic Being jam mode acid squiggles, all the while the sustained strings adding something both euphoric and slightly unsettling. ‘Harmonizer’ is great argument for pure raw ha...view item »

Jean-Louis Costes
Le fantôme d'Archie Shepp

Here we have a live album from Jean-Louis Costes, recorded at the famed Instants Chavirés venue. I’m not entirely sure what subjects are inspiring Costes on Le fantome d’Archie Shepp, as I don’t speak French, but from the demented style of his vocals, he may well be possessed by...view item »

Valve Studio Orchestra
Fight Songs: The Music of Team Fortress 2

I would love to review this but unfortunately I’ve just collapsed into a LOST-style flashback of sitting at my dad’s computer age fifteen trying to play gamer pros at this hyper-active and dangerously caffeinated FPS known as Team Fortress 2. This is potentially the game that put me off gaming for seven or so years, such wer...view item »

Virginia Wing

There’s an unwritten law somewhere that states that bands must start to incorporate electronics around their second or third album. Virginia Wing are certainly following the tried and trusted path with this ‘bridge’ single ahead of their next proper full length. Like W...view item »

Grubs
It Must Be Grubs

Well yeah, Grubs. It must be Grubs. Also, who are Grubs. If we do the usual comparative mixology, Grubs are members of the thankfully very sentimental pop band Two White Cranes and collaborators from twee-noise contingent Joanna Gruesome. In some eyes, this is ...view item »

Joey Agresta
Let's Not Talk About Music

Oh I think I remember this guy. He released records on labels like Feeding Tube under monikers such as Joey Pizza Slice. Now returning to a more sensible moniker he has unleashed a bunch of his home recordings made using vintage tape machines. The most impressive thing is that he has done all this whilst having the distraction of wearing a moust...view item »

Bill Baird
Baby Blue Abyss

Bill Baird has not one but two brand new albums ready for release via Talkshow Records! One of them is for the morning and one is for the evening: Baby Blue Abyss is the evening one. That means it is more external, about dealing with the world (hence tracks like ‘Bourgeois Blues’). These perspectives are del...view item »

Noah Howard / Wiggan / Mapp
From Dust We Came... To Dust We Return

Revolutionary Army of The Infant Jesus
Mirror

Revolutionary Army of Infant Jesus are one of the 0.00001% who aren't bothered about promoting themselves. You won't find these moaning on twitter about their train journey issues. Instead over the course of 20 years or so they've been happy to make music and see if anyone discovers it.  Well they are in luck as slowly their old alb...view item »

Levon Vincent
NS-14

Levon Vincent goes full-on acid on side A of NS-14, as ‘Birds’ burbles over a jackhammer groove. It’s the flip side that’s had the interweb agog, though; Levon’s gone and done a techno cover of, erm, Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’. No, we’re not kidding. Great for e...view item »

Officer!
Never Mind The Bucket

Slightly left of field on the Blackest Ever Black imprint is the comedy stylings of Mick Hobbs, who fronts the Beefheart-influenced stand-up trope Officer!.

Nathan Fake feat. Prurient
DEGREELESSNESS / Now We Know

In a slightly surprising collaboration, warmly hazy electronica merchant Nathan Fake has teamed up with blackened noise-pain dealer Prurient. Degreelessness still sounds bright, but it has an anxious undercurrent to it, partly articulated by Dom Fernow’s distant mutterings. B-side...view item »

Kösmonaut
Songs For Healing

Songs for Healing is a certain Mr Kosmonaut Man asking the stars for some help in healing his daughter, who recently got leukemia and is being saved by the best dad in the world, making the most difficult music in the world (possibly) to do so. This is the second thing I’ve seen in her benefit from Kosmo, so I think he knows what ...view item »

How To Get Ideas

Prog. Not normally my forte but the young man who likes lots of notes is away recovering so let's see how I get on shall we? Well it's not that prog, more progressive noisy mathy rock with some pretty severe head nods towards Fugazi on the opener 'Rushing Lunch' which marries a rather memorable riff (on...view item »

Kromestar
Lion and Thunder

Deep, dark and funky dub atmospherics from one of the original South London dubstep crew. Lion and Thunder is a taut and paranoid piece of electronica drawn from Kromestar’s archives and beautifully pressed as a white label 12” vinyl. They don’t make basslines like these anymore......view item »

Dinner
Psychic Lovers

Psychic Lovers is the debut album from Danish producer Dinner and it sharpens the melancholy synth pop of his first three EPs. Anders Rhedin’s sound pushes the textures and production of 1980s pop into extremes, including his distinctive croon. By doing this he highlights just how strange and sad thes...view item »

Irazu
Shtamm (w/ Regis Remix)

Through his previous cassettes and EPs with Stale, Spanish producer Irazu has grown his techno palette hugely, from Nine Inch Nails esque preocessed guitars and heavy industrial pounders to stark dystopian and discordant drone pieces. On Shtamm he continues developing further, into energetic and frenzie...view item »

Sami
Planing / Sickos

Sami, the producer from Washington DC with fingers in the 1432 R pie, has cut two new tracks just especially for your listening pleasure. Planing is led by a breezy jazz-cool flute part hovering over some major drum machine clatter, and B-side Sickos is just as much of a big-hitting swinger. Good dancing times ...view item »

R
Man Of War

The debut release from Toronto based visual effects artist Andre Edwards-Roderique under his moniker R. Four tracks that cover all corners of experimental and heavy electronics. From pounding techno and footwork kick flurries to acid squelches and 909 trash cymbals there’s dark sweaty rave to breakcore to ...view item »

Glass Vaults
The New Happy

It's funny how you can make it through a record without being able to remember a thing about it but that's what happened yesterday with the Glass Vaults. What it is is a series of ok electronic pop that is not unpleasant but does nothing that warrants a second spin. Opener 'Mindreader' sets the tone being a slap of ok pop that lacks the sor...view item »

Psymun
Rainbow Party

This 3-track taster is anything but a shallow and polished chat-ready take.

Containing no less than punk, hip-hop and leftfield electronica; Psymun are throwing a party...view item »

Map 71
Gloriosa

Poetry and percussive stupor become symbiotic on this new, ever-so limited tape from Map71. One of them, he’s a drummer -- Andy Pyne is his name, and he creates a claustrophobic, super metallic racket with repetitive and ear-clinging rhythms. The other’s a poet by the name os Lisa Jayne, whose driven verse refuses to let up and keeps...view item »

Golden Pelicans
Disciples Of Blood

Golden Pelicans make hard rock that is just as hard and gnarly at the edges as they used to make it in the scuzziest 80’s fleapits. Disciples Of Blood is the third record of punkish long-haired party music the band have put together, and it's properly strong stuff. Released by Goner Records on both CD and LP....view item »

Stump Valley
...

Stump Valley claim to have moved all their studio gear out into the woods when they sat down to record this release. Although that feels a little doubtful (all those synths and drum machines sure sound connected to a power supply), the blissful unhurried tone of these Balearic-style recordings feels about right for such a contex...view item »

White Violet
Ages

White Violet’s process for this record involved a year-long process of writing pairs of songs, each pair consciously developing on the themes of the previous. The resulting album Ages ended up being about time and ageing and adulthood, with songs that manage these themes intimately and maturely. Released on vinyl ...view item »

Doubler
Alter-VU

I’m enjoying this. I think. Because I’m so confused I’m not sure if I’m playing it at the right speed, or what day it is…or whether I put my trousers on this morning. The label moniker is perfect for this frayed at the edges take on house  music. It bleeps and bloops in the sort of dreamy way you ...view item »

Body Boys

Sounds recorded sometime in the past of the Body Boys’ recording career.

FTLT was released in 2012 and was the last time we’ve heard from east london rapper Klashnekoff. S.O.N. Records thought it was about time it was brought to vinyl for the masses. BIIIG hip hop beats from Beat Butcha and Red Spyda guest productions fit seamlessly alongside K...view item »

Father
Pop Chops

Father were my favourite mid '90s lo-fi band who weren't Guided By Voices. They were three teenagers from Stoke On Trent who had an incredibly melodic if impossibly lo-fi sound which over the course of three cassettes yielded a number of utterly remarkable recordings. What makes them stand from the ot...view item »

Jonny Velon
Goodness Flows

Inventive singer-songwriter Jonny Velon tunes into the sounds and styles of various classic 70’s cats on his new album Goodness Flows: Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Murray Head… They all mesh together into an accomplished album of cool rock music. The album h...view item »

Georgia
Georgia

Probably unfair Monday morning styled non-review: sounds kind of like M.I.A. for a while, then one track sounded a bit like Kate Bush. Bit too loud really, for this time of day. Domino used to be leaders but they just sign people who sound a bit like someone else. Plenty of plaudits in the press though, so perhaps read that instead. ...view item »

Keston Cobblers Club
Almost Home

A follow up to their 2015 critically acclaimed album, Almost Home is the latest release from Keston Cobblers Club. A genuine show of warmth and community based music that combines folk with country, paired with a modern ‘poppy’ feel to it; catchy lyrics and dazzling musicianship is shown on this reco...view item »

Ion Ludwig
For Real We Are Not For You EP

Two deep-pulsing grooves from Ion Ludwig (also releasing as Alter Mahnn). The For Real We Are Not For You EP has been crafted with intelligence and great patience: both tracks are constructed with long-term development in mind, gradually evolving over the course of many minutes. 12” on Toi Toi Mus...view item »

YPY
2020

YPY is the production project of Osaka artist Koshiro Hino, working with what I’m going to call electronic music, although that term doesn’t explain much of what is going on here. 2020 is full of drum machine rhythms and synth fragments, but the rhythms don’t necessarily move like you&...view item »

Emma Gatrill
Cocoon

This is a bit twee  - but if you like Joanna Newsome you'll be in some kind of heaven here. Emma Gatrill plays the harp and and sings in the same kind of girly voice with clipped vowels. It's lovely but perhaps a little too studied to be truly original. I do wish Gatrill would find her own sing...view item »

Spiral Stairs
Doris and The Daggers

Perennial second-in-commands of indie rock bands rejoice! The king of all runner-ups Scott Kannberg is here on his own, returning to his Spiral Stairs project with plenty of PR references to his time in Pavement. It’s not really fair, considering just how different he sounds as a songwriter. With his voice a grumbly octave down and his son...view item »

Mass Prod
Earquake

Italo-American producer Mass Prod has been cutting his teeth for a while across numerous labels, including ReSolute, Kontra-Musik, Cuttin’ Headz and Objazz.

Ludwig Goransson
Creed (Original Motion Picture Score)

The soundtrack to the boxing-tastic movie Creed, available on vinyl for the first time ever!

This double LP release includes four bonus tracks that have not previously been releas...view item »

Orson
For The Head / The Past Is A Dream

After a good few releases spent overseeing and curating proceedings, Version label head Orson puts a couple of his own tunes into circulation. For The Head / The Past Is A Dream is a properly low-slung pair of sub-bass rollers, pitched to half-step speed and fine-tuned to devastating effect. 12” release, necessary...view item »

Marcos Cabral
Buried Alive Twice

Under the Chemotex moniker, New Yorker, Marcos Cabral made some massive club sounds that recalled the days of Rush and Cajual. Under his given name, Cabral released the album L.I.E.S. in 2013 which went largely unnoticed but set him on a new roots-drive...view item »

Bass Clef
Entendrillar

Two new cuts from Bass Clef, the ever-reliable project of Ralph Cumbers. Typically for a Clef production, Entendrillar is exuberant, fun and addictive, weaving a dense nest of synths and rhythms that’ll get you nodding and / or shimmying. And B-side ‘Transprism’ is no ...view item »

Reviews. Hmm. How to start them… Ah, I know, a joke. How about, this review intro, huh? Nailed it. Ok so This is Fay from a band called Pit Er Pat who have had 4 releases on Thrill Jockey so how I’m new to them is a mystery. They haven’t released anything since 2010 though, so it’s good t...view item »

Metalized Man
Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures in Manhood

Metalized Man make music that’s perfect for those types who like electronic music but are a bit fuzzy on the idea of dancing: this stuff right here is too abstracted, noisy and weird for you to get a groove on, but boy are those textures delicious. Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures In Manhoo...view item »

Succhiamo
Succhiamo

Succhiamo does the almost-unthinkable here on this eponymous two-tracker, by cheerfully remembering the much-lamented music of electroclash. That means two big and brash funtime bangers, with lyrics about sex and supermarkets and a tongue-in-cheek attitude. A very welcome release to see in a ‘serious dan...view item »

stillichimiya x COMPUMA
Bangkok Nights EP

Stillichimiya were included in a 2015 Complex list of ‘25 Japanese Rap Groups You Need to Know’, and their infectious brand of Beastie Boys-style posse rap manages to jump the language barrier pretty well. ‘Bangkok Nights’ was made to promote the 2016 Katsuya Tomi...view item »

Dams Of The West
Youngish American

Air Cushion Finish
Flink

Flink is the warped, mysterious and 8th offering of Berlin-incepted oddity - Air Cushion Finish. Fronted by the manipulated vocals of experimentalist Lippstueck, who has helped form the German experimentalist scene since the 1990's, this offering continues the pioneer's steady rise and i...view item »

Jimi Bazzouka how’s she blowing?    As it’s a day with ‘day’ in its name there are saxophone squeaks from the other room. Our office saxophone intake is as high as our coffee intake. Are the two things linked?    Yesterday we listened to awful synth tha...view item »

Gypsy Mamba

Another classic eighties Italodisco remastered 12" here at Norman Records: Kirlian Camera’s exciting 1987 single Helden Platz (that’s German for Heroes’ Square). Vocals are courtesy of Simona Buja on this up-tempo dark-wave synth-pop track. Produced by the Rick Rubin of Italodisco...view item »

The Molochs
America's Velvet Glory

Their album art is like Sleaford Mods with the lights off and one of them looks kinda like the owner of my local pub -- shoutout Nath Brudenell -- but they’re just happy to go lucky as a throwback garage band. It’s no bad thing that they’re just making the most simple sounding of all rock mus...view item »

Blackdown
Rollage Vol.2: Keysound Sessions Anthem

This new Blackdown material is the result of a tightly constrained process: all four tracks have been built up around a piece of audio grabbed by a phone in the middle of a Keysound club night. From that inauspicious sound grain, a bunch of strong bangers has sprung, all rolling forth at 130bpm. Rollage Vol. 2: Keysound Sess...view item »

Tristesse Contemporaine
Stop and Start

Tristesse Contemporaine are a Japanese / Swedish / Anglo-Jamaican trio based in Paris, where they generate indie-style electro-pop.

Released on CD and LP with an artsy photographic c...view item »

Alex Izenberg
Harlequin

Who is this man?  I dunno but I suspect he's been listening to a lot of Robert Wyatt and a lot of Plush from the sounds of the opening tracks here. He blends a quivering reedy voice with hesitant orchestral compositions that disarm through their very fragility. 'Grace' b...view item »

B12
An Eternal Flame

The style of the sleeve art might tip you off that this is firmly 90’s style music right here, but don’t worry: the standard of B12’s techno is a lot higher than the standard of their art design. An Eternal Flame’s four tracks are thoughtful and spacey and imaginative. Coloured vinyl 12” on...view item »

Joan Of Arc
He's Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands

Here he is: the less emotional but certifiably more obnoxious Kinsella brother, the one you’re far less likely to go getting a lyrics tattoo in tribute to. Having used the proggy, skronky, and downright stupid Joan of Arc as a vehicle for the most dissonant and untenable musical positions of his career, he now returns with the del...view item »

Klyne
Don't Stop / Water Flow

Klyne are a Dutch group making electro-pop that manages to be proper pop (e.g. you could play it on the radio and use it on stylish adverts) as well as proper electro (e.g. the synths bite just right). Their Don’t Stop / Water Flow EP contains four tracks of this, and i...view item »

Do you remember what you were like in 2012? I had a crazy mustache (it was good, trust me (I’m serious)), long hair and a crazy girlfriend.

No one else makes the...view item »

Flasher
Flasher

This is like if an improv comedian took requests from the audience and one challenging audience member called out “extremely uptight post-punk band!”. This is what that would be: it sounds so on the money as to reach that sweet spot of self-parody: wiry guitars, a beaming chorus addition of synth, a nonchalant bassline that resists a...view item »

Merge
Kashan

Like your jazz-funk odysseys served with a heap of melody and crunchy bass playing? Come on in. Kashan recalls the more lounge-lizard end of Weather Report as its three tracks move nimbly from motif to improv and back again. ‘III’ features a thick, chatty bassline that will have Jaco Pastorius...view item »

Candy Bomber
Volume 1

As press releases are wont to do, Candy Bomber’s spends a lot of time waxing lyrical about the persons and artifacts responsible for Candy Bomber while essentially dispensing no musical infos: that’s okay though, because you can listen to it, and what’s going on in frontman/general musician Paul Lemp’s world is rather imp...view item »

Over The Rhine
Ohio

Over The Rhine are a American(a) folk band that has grown up around a husband and wife duo. 2003’s double album Ohio is perhaps their magnum opus, using its length to showcase the band’s considerable range, from deep piano-song melancholy to pedal steel rhythmic shuffle. This double vinyl reissue of Ohio...view item »

Space People
Wet

Slick and speedy work here from New York producer Space People, who bounces through six tracks in sixteen minutes. That bouncy pace means that not a moment is wasted: Wet is busy with details, be they samples (look out for the ghost of Missy Elliot) or sudden beat-shifts. 12” release on Styles Upo...view item »

Mr Tophat feat. Robyn

Excellent pop star Robyn’s latest appearance is on Trust Me, an excellent slice of sexy modern electro-disco by Mr. Tophat. The 12” features a nicely stretched-out ten minute version of the tune, as well as a punchy radio edit of ‘Right Time’ and another track called ‘Disco...view item »

Elemnt
Water

These four tracks from Elemnt play around with techno and ambient forms, sometimes sounding like distant drifting and other times settling into precision-tooled squelch-techno. The latter variety of Water is sleek and business-like and frankly irresistible. 12” release on Hidden Hawaii, pressed in a limited editio...view item »

We've an LP of slow, subtle dark atmospheres here from Mesa Ritual, the duo of William Fowler Collins and Raven Chacon.

If there’s one thing those lovely be-jumpered chaps at Time Released Sound know how to do, it’s pastorally evocative.

Just in time for the Winterval season, too. Which is a ...view item »
