Molly Nilsson
Imaginations

Swedish-born, Berlin-dwelling, world-travelling singer Molly Nilsson is deep into her career now, and she is still feeling melancholy.

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 »

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 »

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.

Goldring / Thomson
For All #1: Nines

This one-sided 12" collaboration brings together two guitarists from noisy post-rock band Enablers for some eerie but ultimately good-time noodling and bell-chiming. Joe Goldring has previously played with ubiquitous noise fiends Swans, so is no stranger to fifteen-minute-plus pieces...view item »

Jesse Ruins
Fractured Holy Symmetry

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.

Wei Zhongle
Nu Trance

Wei Zhongle are a trio operating on a number of axes simultaneously, pulling in dubby bass, a melange of electronics, occasionally klezmer-ish clarinet and ecstatically meandering vocals to make a curious brew.

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.

Life's Track
Smell of Sanctity

Five tracks-worth of low-down heavy funky sound by Life’s Track on this new 12” EP.

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 »

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 »

Nathan Fake feat. Prurient
DEGREELESSNESS / Now We Know

Kösmonaut
Songs For Healing

Songs For Healing by Kosmonaut aka Patrick Park was inspired by and dedicated to his daughter who was diagnosed with Leukaemia last year.

Qui
How To Get Ideas

Shades of The Mars Volta and The Mae Shi in the shape-shifting pop-prog chaos here. Two-part vocal harmonies morph with a sort of anarchic precision on each track as guitars twiddle away dextrously.

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.

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.

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 »

Glass Vaults
The New Happy

Psychedelic indie pop band from New Zealand Glass Vaults return with their sophomore album The New Happy.

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

Body Boys
H

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

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 »

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 »

FAY

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

Succhiamo
Succhiamo

Succhiamo does the almost-unthinkable here on this eponymous two-tracker, by cheerfully remembering the much-lamented music of electroclash.

Edit Navigation Bar Mask Visions Poison

As Statiqbloom Fade Kainer borrows equally from the golden age of IDM and the peak of early industrial musics.

Games and Dreams is a four...view item »

Via App
Sixth Stitch

Uneasy, distorted and mangled experimental electronics from Via App. Occasionally dipping into a hard hitting techno form, but never for long enough for anything to settle.

Saints is a film about the distant and isolated island of Saint Helena, for which Hiele has provided the soundtrack.

Less-than-usual pop sounds from the other sides of the tracks, that's what Reckonwrong has for us on his new two-tracker.

Lifesick
6.0.1.

Lifesick is a new band made up of former members of Spinkick. That band wasn’t exactly lightweight (they tended to sound like they were charging towards you in order to kick your head in), but Lifesick is an even more blackened and ferocious hardcore prospect. 6.0.1. is released b...view item »

WOLF DEM
Hydrophobia

The anarchic nature of Philly duo WOLF DEM is no more apparent than on Hydrophobia. Pushing the boundaries of techno (and in fact anything else out there at the moment) the four-track collection is characterised by schizophrenic computer software - malfunctioning and convulsing in every ...view item »

Abstract Division
Corrosive Mind

Two new cuts from Abstract Division, each one paired with a remix.

And Milton Bradley...view item »

Milemarker
Overseas

Prog showstoppers Milemarker have a long history of mixing a rigid post-hardcore element into synthy New Wave gloop, an undercurrent of math kinetics and metal showboating in the vox.

Consisting of Nobuyuki Sakuma   - a member of Japanese synth punks Jesse Ruins - this is a wild ride of chopped noise-tronics and drill like percussion.

Archive are evidently in it for the long haul: The False Foundation is their tenth album!

Fazed EP

Dark and dystopian techno with a clean industrial edge.
