Life In Sodom
The Stains / Alessandro Adriani Remix

As Mannequin Records closes in on 100 releases Alessandro Adriani’s label dips its toe into the reissues market. This one is a 1991 single from Goth-wave legends Life In Sodom. Both versions of ‘The Stains’ are gloriously vampiric combinations of darkwave, techno and industrial rock. The same applies to 1992 cut ‘Phantasmagoria’ which crops up on the B-side. Label boss Adriani provides a club edit of ‘The Stains’ to round the EP out.

Succhiamo
Mani In Fuoco

Succhiamo returns to Antinote (Tolouse Low Trax, Alek Lee) with another dose of oddball Italo Disco. Mani In Fuoco builds on the good work Succhiamo put in on his Antinote debut back in 2017. That means you can expect more lopsided electro-disco grooves and more seasick synths. Anyone who’s been digging Cardopusher recently should give this a go.

Nuel
The Gentle

Acid chef Nuel’s new EP on Midgar Records is a solid four-part hypnosis. Right from the first kick drum until the final reverb, The Gentle will have you bobbing your head off into a deeper trance, taking you far away from your mundane worries while you space off to some psychedelic Italian techno.

yellow6
merry6mas2018

British post-rocker yellow6 (Jon Attwood) gets into the festive spirit with merry6mas2018. Usually with Christmas albums you get at least some nod to the holidays. Not merry6mas2018. In fact, this LP is wholly comprised of offcuts from November’s 20th anniversary mega-album REFLECT. Mind you, the Jonny Greenwood-aping guitar instrumentals here are pretty enough to bring a certain brand of Xmas cheer to the table. Who's for eggnog?

Duds
Of A Nature Or Degree

In this years incredible (but welcome) news, Manchester's Duds  - a band I described as simply 'ok' when I saw them live have now signed to John Dwyer's Castle Face. They update the short, sharp, shock of the likes of the Fire Engines and Josef K with jittery post punk moves and now sit alongside their heroes on this legendary label. This could be your new favourite and they are local (ish).

Konami Kukeiha Club
Gradius

The soundtrack to 80’s scrolling space-shooter classic Gradius, presented in both NES original and 1989 MSX versions. Listening to these hyperactive 8-bit synth melodies on vinyl, you can of course hear the whole thing clearly, without the endless bleeps of your lasers. Actually a remarkably strong listening experience. From Ship To Shore PhonoCo.

Discrete Circuit & Mark Broom
MBDC

Some techno-ass techno here from Discrete Circuit and Mark Broom. The pair have crossed paths before, but MBDC is the first time that they produced a body of work together. They come through with three big-room tools that occasionally have an acid whiff to them (see ‘MBDC2’). H4L gives ‘MBDC2’ a skittering electro flip to close out the record.

Street Sects
The Kicking Mule

Debut album, End Position showed influences such as Chrome and Nine Inch Nails. Street Sects, the Austin, Texas post-punk industrial screamers change gear for album number two, The Kicking Mule. Here, they use Roxy Music, Brian Eno and Bowie’s Berlin trilogy as inspiration for it’s follow up, The Kicking Mule. there’s still plenty of rattling industrialism, screaming and Nine Inch Nails-ness, though. LP and CD on The Flenser.

Eliza and the Bear
Group Therapy

A few years ago Eliza and the Bear seemed destined to be the next big thing. Things didn’t take off as their major label would have like so they were unceremoniously dropped. Their new album Group Therapy, was written during this upheaval and has served as the title suggests it would. Making it and writing about anxiety and depression has been a valuable cathartic exercise for them. LP and CD on Be-Known.

Evoken
Hypnagogia

The moody bastards at Profound Lore (Bell Witch, Pallbearer) with another record of unrelentingly intense metal here. This one comes courtesy of New Jersey doom OGs Evoken. Hypnagogia is a sludgy delight, all thick walls of guitar and merciless vocal grunts. It’s very well produced too - the guitars on ‘Valorous Consternation’ sound melodic and meaty all at once.

Produced by Ralf Henrich and Andreas Tomalla, Rejekto was techno before it was techno, with a slamming 80s snare.

Bryce Hackford
:::::::::::::

Style-roving New York producer Bryce Hackford is here with a EP on Youth. With previous work tracing from synthpop to ambient, this here trio of new tunes is all rather wonky, improvised lo-fi house. The A is particularly heavy and minimal with a pair of chunky cuts, all twanging bass and carbonised drones. Bryce reserves the B for a more melodic focus to the hooks.

The Modern Institute
Another Exhibition

Golden Teacher spin-off The Modern Institute stick it to the bourgeoisie art world with Another Exhibition, complete with a Pseuds’ Corner press release. I would warn against confusing this reissued cassette's staggeringly insipid title with the more recent Another Exhibition at the Modern Institute, but that would spoil the duo’s game. Gritty post-industrial post-techno, sound art and spoken word.

The moody, skittering rhythms of cuts like 'XEU.4217' and ‘Alicante’ nod to Ron Morelli, Don’t DJ and Evitceles.

Shake
5% Solution

Prayers have been answered! This sought after 4-track EP is a secret weapon, high on many a Detroit techno fiend's wants list. Originally released on Juan Atkins hallowed Metroplex imprint back in 1993 -- the same year Anthony "Shake" Shakir released his debut under the Shake handle on Kevin Saunderson's KMS sister label Trance Fusion. Shake has a unique, raw and quirky approach to techno which has always given his tracks a distinctive character and super funky sound. He's a real demon on his drum machines - you'll hear why he can count the likes of Autechre among his legion of fans. Shake is arguably Detroit techno's best kept secret - this record still sounds fresh twenty fives years after it was created.

The Polish underground is one of the most hyperactive in the world. Mołr Drammaz have been a crucial part of this underground since 1994, in ever-shifting permutations. ‘Times Before Emojis Came’ compiles material from many of the involved artists, it’s a sound genuinely unpredictable, both dank and ecstatic. From entwined rhythmic jams to liquidated electronics, this is experimental without pretence.

The Kansas City duo bring a sound here that takes the languid anti-punk of Micachu & The Shapes and smashes it together with some Alice Glass-y chip-tronica.

Chosen Songs looks like it may be a retrospective of their best moments. LP on Stroom.

The Self Split EP credits Kouhei alongside Speedy K and NHK yx koyxen, both of whom are also himself: only Masayuki Imanishi is an actual different person. The four tracks are suitably wild and enticing, whoever made them. Diagonal 12”

The LP - which features contributions from the likes of Bill MacKay and Macie Stewart - is released by the Flau label.

Following a similar style to Drive, Martinez relies on synths to create a dark and tense soundtrack. In addition to the score by Martinez, the album features an exclusive song by Father John Misty along with classics by The Mamas & The Papas, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Elyse Weinberg.

Dios
Life Between The Tides

Dios are arguably pushing their luck by being from the same town as The Beach Boys while sounding this substantially influenced by them, but hey, who really cares when the music is this much fun? Life Between The Tides is a good time, with sunny psychedelic pop mixing with bits of electronics and found sound fun. Out on Burger Records.

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical way - more experimental than its predecessor in terms of instrumentation and recording venues. Double LP on Tartelet.

Maxxxbass
Gone Fishing

Long Island Electrical Systems aka L.I.E.S. love a bit of obfuscation, and this latest LP from Maxxx Bass has heaps of it. The strange cover, the lack of track titles and the obtuse, drifting sonics within Gone Fishing will have been music to label-boss Ron Morelli’s ears. That said, this is not an unwelcoming record from an artist who has previously released on L.I.E.S. through his group KWC 92. Found sound, FM electronics, synth choirs and gentle flutes all bob in the stream of this nine-part affair. The overall effect lands somewhere between Fennesz and a wordless Panda Bear.

London Modular Alliance
Wireless

London Modular Alliance is a silly name, but at least it’s factually watertight. The group formed around the London synth emporium London Modular, and all of their tracks are born from hardware jams. It’ll come as no surprise that the cuts on Wireless are dense, slightly sinister numbers that sound very expensive. Will appeal to people who’ve been enjoying anything that CPU have done of late.

Indifferent Dance Centre
Flight & Pursuit

The second release on Outer Reaches is a rare nugget of ‘80s post-punk. Indifferent Dance Centre put out one record, 1981 single Flight & Pursuit, during their time together. Recorded in a church hall in Chichester, the group’s style is an ethereal, tranquillised take on the moody sounds of Joy Division and The Durutti Column. The title track, with its ‘Come As You Are’ bassline and floaty vocals, prefigures the work of the much-missed High Places. A worthy reissue.

Various (General Ludd, Herva, Nene H, Altered Natives)
DBA039.5

The excellent Don’t Be Afraid return with another EP of weapons-grade club tackle for their .5 series. A roster of General Ludd, Herva, Nene H and Altered Natives serve up techno four ways here. Ludd and Herva’s A-sides are dubby shapeshifters not dissimilar to the soundsystem stylings of labels like Idle Hands and Livity Sound. On the flip, H and Altered Natives forego subtlety altogether - ‘Retto’ and ‘Dancing Girl’ will tear the dancefloor a new one.

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fodder or the deconstructionism of someone like Ziur. Rather, what we have here are intersections of Perfume Genius/How To Dress Well-style queer pop and the freighted maximalism you sometimes find bolting out of the LuckyMe stable.

Their collaborative work first appeared on Irish label Trensmat and later on Sunil Sharpe's Earwiggle imprint. Now the duo return with an ace four-track EP of seething and infectious cuts blurring the lines between techno/electro/industrial. All tracks bang and rattle in all the right places and are heavy in terms of both sound and emotion. Only 300 copies with killer artwork by Yamako King.

This is him doing a film score - specifically a score for Marc Turtletaub’s Puzzle. It’s written for a chamber ensemble. A lot of it sounds like the parts of the About A Boy soundtrack that sound like they weren’t composed by Badly Drawn Boy but actually were. Do with this what you will.

On Eighteen Gordon is ably assisted by Gabe Guernsey (Factory Floor), Larry Saltzman (Arthur Russell) and Paul Nowinski (LOLO) here. The group craft instrumentals of autumnal beauty that are at once too woozy to be dance music, too silvery to be r&b, and too synthetic to be soul. They are what they are, and they are beautiful.

Saloli
The Deep End

The Year Zero for Mary Sutton’s debut LP as Saloli was a performance at a clothing-optional soaking-pool sauna.

The generative point of The Deep End encourages comparisons with Yamaneko’s Spa Commissions, but the sounds here lean more towards the New Age reissues of Seance Centre.

Whereas previous drops from Seraphim Rytm and Michiru Aoyama have been largely or wholly ambient works, The Path Of Untitled Memories is a no-BS body-techno affair that nods to the Echochord school.

When I Shoot at You With Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is the 4th album by the man who considers Obama to be 'the Murderer of the American Dream'--whatever that means.

That means Chicago house beats, rave breaks and whooping vocal samples are the order of the day.

Beneath
Cloudy

A14 is a highly-promising offshoot of Blackest Ever Black that has already fronted releases by Rhythmic Theory and Pessimist. They keep up the good work on their fourth drop, a set of proper soundsystem muck from the consistently brilliant Beneath. ‘Cloudy’ fronts a wiggling bassline and stuttering drums in a manner that brings to mind a souped-up version of Pearson Sound’s ‘Earwig’. On the flip we get ‘Outsource’, a dark techno number that’s pretty similar to Pessimist actually.

As such, the six tracks here are built from the legendary drum machine upwards and are topped with 80s jazz-funk keyboards (‘IDK’, ‘Bloodline’) and sticky 303 basslines (‘Roll Of The Dice’).

Some golden oldies from New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen, Tears For Fears and other bands of that ilk also make the cut.

A blue raspberry. That'll be the day.

Emergence makes a compelling case for more light to be shone on a scene - and a nation - whose music is often passed over by Western listeners. There are compelling piano pieces (Do Tan Si’s ‘The Morning Seems So Strange Today’), droning tape ambiences reminiscent of Yves Tumor (‘Sound Awakener’ by Duskiness), Oval-esque sound experiments from Parallel Asteroid and plenty more on the ten tracks here.

Oliver Coates is a prodigious talent. He’s been too good for too long now for anyone to put in a salient argument to the contrary. Here we see him returning to Slip, the label that put out his excellent collaborative LP with Mica Levi, for a short record of avant-anarchism alongside Laurie Tompkins. Ample Profanity is a disorientating listen - at one point it will resemble the kindergarten punk of early Micachu & The Shapes, then a few seconds later it’ll be on an Einstuerzende Neubauten flex.
