Moon Temple
Part I

Moon Temple is the solo business of Gabriel Andruzzi, who coyly hints at his previous musical activity in his press release (I’ll spill the beans: he was in The Rapture). Part 1 of his double vinyl solo debut (released separately) is a proper electronic exploration of both acidic ...view item »

Moon Temple
Part II

Moon Temple is the solo business of Gabriel Andruzzi, who coyly hints at his previous musical activity in his press release (I’ll spill the beans: he was in The Rapture). Part II of his double vinyl solo debut (the two halves are released separately) is tasty stuff to suit a varie...view item »

Abstract Division
Corrosive Mind

Two new cuts from Abstract Division, each one paired with a remix. Corrosive Mind is full of appropriately acidic synth lines that could probably burn through concrete if given half the chance. ‘Intervention’ is more relentlessly jack-hammer beat-driven, but both tracks bring joy. And Milton Bradley...view item »

EMG
255

Six tracks from EMG, alternating between tracks precisely tuned for dancing and tracks that go a little further out: check the glitch-beat and bass-hum minimalism of ‘Street Run’ for example. The obliquely-titled 255 is released in a limited edition o...view item »

Naum Gabo
Sleep C'mon

Glasgow production duo Naum Gabo made up of Jonnie Wilkes of Optimo and mastering engineer James Savage are a strong team with releases on Kompakt, Correspondant and Fright records. The title track sounding like something the Modified Toy Orchestra would make if...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 »

Camila Fuchs
Singing From Fixed Rung

Camilla Fuchs is the duo project of two international electronic sound people (Mexico’s Camilia de Laborde and Germany’s Daniel Hermann-Collini). Singing From Fixed Rung is a set of song-based synth-pop material made with an experimental attitude. This LP is a joint release ...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. Their new record, Overseas, panders to their old love of fronting guitars and giddily overbearing electronics. It's a bit silly...view item »

Black Manual
Mordendo Remixed

Black Manual released Mordendo in 2013 through Brigade Commerz. Fusing life tribal percussion and destructive electronics the result was a distant flurry of experimentation and rhythm fighting with each other. The pieces have been palmed over to the fitting hands of Cut Hands, EmptySet&...view item »

Cube
My Cube

Hello. You have thirty minutes to move your cube. In the meantime, listen to ‘My Cube’, by Cube, possibly about cubes. This is their very first LP but unlike a baby’s first steps it is not at all adorable, instead pushing distorted synth-punk through a lens of unkind noi...view item »

Jemh Circs
Jemh Circs

Marc Richter is well known under his Black To Comm moniker, with releases on Type and Dekorder. He has kept this latest project under wraps, quite successfully. The product of scouring YouTube for pop vocals Jemh Circs brings an almost vaporwave artificiality and pop culture clash, droning and m...view item »

Jerry Fielding
The Nightcomers

The Nightcomers is a gothic horror tale from 1971, starring Marlon Brando. Set in a grand country house and with lots of creepy goings on, there is much for film composer Jerry Fielding to sink his teeth into, and this fully-orchestrated soundtrack is tender and dramatic and highly cinematic. 180g vinyl...view item »

The Legal Matters
Conrad

Conrad is the latest power-pop missive from The Legal Matters: so much melody and such big choruses that you can hardly handle it! And if you really really like the voices of The Legal Matters, boy are you in luck: the vinyl version includes a download code for a vocal-only mix of the whole album! Perfe...view item »

Bad Sports
Living With Secrets

It’s simple, really: Bad Sports throwback to the economically performed, half-political punk rock of yore with an EP that sometimes exists with a chip on its shoulder a la Dead Kennedys and also sometimes rises up with the emotive euphoria of Husker Du -- with other, more foreboding influences to work their way down the line after a couple...view item »

Amps For Christ / Woods

Kero & Gotshell
Perindsor EP

Kero and Gotshell pair up for Blueprint’s 20th anniversary, providing a four track EP of dark techy electronica rooted firmly in the techno sphere. With the cold, knife-like precision of Autechre or Emptyset and with a kick so deep it sounds as if it is coming from noisy h...view item »

S Olbricht
For Perfect Beings

Following releases on Opal Tapes and Lee Gamble's UIQ imprint, Budapest’s S Olbricht brings the existential techno from Hungary on his latest 6-or-7-track EP for the redoubtable Lobster Theremin. I say 6 or 7, because the final track, ‘Ovacrwd...view item »

Pet Shop Boys
Say It To Me

The Pet Shop Boys have always been well-remixed, and Say It To Me, the latest release from their current Super album, is no exception. Real Lies, Tom Demac, Stuart Price and Offer Nissim all work their magic across both CD and 12” release...view item »

Pépé Bradock
Baby Craddock

Pépé Bradock is the mischievous Parisian producer with a flair for mixing it up stylistically. Here he also plays around with identity, declaring that he is now Baby Craddock instead. Whatever that might mean, these six tracks provide plenty to enjoy, from flicker-pulsing dark acid to wild house. Baby ...view item »

CVN
Exposure

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. Sakuma produces a warped and mutant form of juxtaposed electronica  - the percussion is ear splittingly harsh yet beneath there is some semblance of melodic ...view item »

Archive
The False Foundation

Archive are evidently in it for the long haul: The False Foundation is their tenth album! Ten is also the number of members involved in the group, meaning no shortage of ideas buzzing around in the studio. What has come out is a prog / post rock record of sorts, but with more electronics than guitars. Sniff around the a...view item »

Automatisme
Momentform Accumulations

Prior to working here I had no idea that Constellation even released electronic music in any form. Yet here I am, sitting next to a pile of melted plastic bags listening to a soon-to-be-released angular ambient techno album that Robin apparently ‘didn’t understand’. And that’s coming from a philosophy graduate. It...view item »

Killawatt
Fazed EP

Dark and dystopian techno with a clean industrial edge. Fazed is a straight hitter from a bladerunner factory, Livewire is a minimal machine stuck in a clattering loop and Okinawa is a sense shocking percussion and metal scraping flurry. With two remixes of Livewire, Sergie Rezza turning it in...view item »

rkss
Cutoff

London’s Alien Jams imprint follows up their Beatrice Dillon/Karen Gwyer split with a 12” EP from rkss. Strange and peripheral electronics are the order of the day! “Wave” washes out fidgety, hyper-textural knocks with swathes of synths and a kick that steadily hammers you into neighbour-nuisance territor...view item »

Adam Feingold
Ascension

Canadian producer Adam Feingold aka Ex-Terrestrial (1080p, Temple, Pacific Rhythm) returns to Steven Julien's label for a second twelve, featuring two cuts of the rugged style house/techno that Funkineven seems to hoover up for his imprint. 'Ascension' is raw and emotive with a smattering of acid, while the blue 'Inner Zone' is melancholy a...view item »

JS Truchy
Transmission in an Expanse of Firelight, Hear Me!

JS Truchy is a long-running Montreal experimentalist with a full brace of tapes and the like under his belt, but he apparently considers this release to be his first ‘proper’ record. Transmission in an Expanse of Firelight, Hear Me! certainly has the appropriate ambition, being full of grand vocals, harsh no...view item »

NAKED
ZONE

The duo NAKED are new and young and vigorous, with a sound that drowns pop songs in wave upon wave of digital distortion and shreds of unidentified sound. They have a healthy disregard for the differences between melodic and noisy material. Debut album ZONE is a fiercely beautiful prospect, dwelling on modern isolation ...view item »

Zwischenfall
Heute

Vintage Belgian electro action in the style that the Dark Entries label loves so dearly. Zwischenfall recorded and released the Heute EP in 1983, although two tracks heard here have never been pressed to vinyl before. Reissued by Dark Entries in a replica of the original sleeve along with a 6-page booklet of tasty lyric...view item »

Benedict Schlepper-Connolly
The Weathered Stone

Hailing from fair Dublin, Benedict Schlepper-Connolly composes music for many mediums and in many forms. His new nature-oriented collection The Weathered Stone contains sung songs and soaring string quartets alike, with a thick harmonic core running through the middle of each of these four pieces. The LP is released on ...view item »

Spearmint
It's Time To Vanish

Spearmint are the sort of '90s survivors that could have had Pulp - like success if the planets had arranged themselves a tad differently. Instead they soldier on into 2016 with a new album which re-unites them with producer John Etkin-Bell for an album of sunny side up pop tunes that are reminiscent o...view item »

Geraint Jarman
Tawel Yw'r Tymor (Quiet Is The Season)

Geraint Jarman doesn’t mess around with any English language bullshit: he has been performing in Welsh for forty years now, and Tawel Yw’r Tymor is some of the most direct Jarman we’ve ever heard. The backing band (and indeed the electricity) has been dispensed with, leaving the beauti...view item »

Marcellus Pittman
Sneak Attack / Random Acts of Insanity

Butcher Bear
Don't Save Yourself

Butcher Bear slams the listener with some heavy-tasty hip-hop on Don’t Save Yourself, a set that uses a lot of live instrumentation as well as booming samples. Plenty of MCs contribute, and don’t forget the fresh remixes (exclusive to this release) from Shit & Shine and Ras G and...view item »

Rob Magill
The Owl and The Pussycat

The Owl And The Pussycat is the first vinyl release for Rob Magill, a resident of Southern California who seems to be able to turn his hand to most arty things - musical composition, playing every instrument under the sun, poetry, painting and even owning his own label. He began recording in 2010 and has since made 50 a...view item »

Band Aparte
Memory On Trial

As Robin bleats in his Preoccupations review..."a moody post-punk record? Gosh, we really needed another one of ‘em, didn’t we?" Well we have another here though Band Aparte play their goth at 100mph. It sounds like Interpol running away from their past.  If onl...view item »

Headhunter
Atijo / Ina

Yaaassssssss! Spin it back to early 2000s and the rise of Tempa records, remember when dubstep was good etc. etc. etc.. Maybe more that it was still a pioneering genre. Addison Groove has put his Headhunter hat back on and aiming to bring those back again, with shuffles, stabs, and halftimes aplenty....view item »

Lahun
Slow Love EP

After remixing Lakker on R&S, Lahun has been snapped up by Apollo. Open and sparse but filled with texture and soul, his work falls around James Blake and J Dilla with a palette affected by a 90s rave scene background. Huge developing pads, slow shuffles, and with Sa...view item »

Monolord
Lord of Suffering ​/ ​Die in Haze

If HENCH riffery is your thing, get yer face into Monolord. Crisp and buzzsaw like tone, psychedelic flanged and spaced out vocals, but above all, riffs for days, played with a mechanical tightness. Ok, two tracks, but they provide a big ol’ shot of doom that will keep your head banging for a while....view item »

Fabio Frizzi
Manhattan Baby

Manhattan Baby is a classic style horror-thriller from 1982, and it comes with a soundtrack to match. OST veteran Fabio Frizzi turned on his synthesisers for a deep and dramatic sonic action-fest. This release on new Subsound sub-label Sub OST is the first time the complete s...view item »

Dennis Callaci
A Bed of Light

Delightful, rough and ready, quirky, lofi indie pop songs that fans of stuff like Smog will absolutely lap up.  Mostly known for his huge amounts of work in the band Refrigerator, and having gone under monikers even his own press mock him for, A Bed of Light is Dennis Callaci&rsquo...view item »

Venus II
Inside Your Sun

Australia based Jarrad Brown of Eagle & The Worm and Ryan Grieve of Canyons make up Venus II. Pushing their two worlds together the result sounds like a child of madchester and would fit right in popping pills at the Hacienda and doing the bez walk. Trippy, ...view item »

Blackmass Plastics
Under The Radar

Blackmass Plastics drops 8 new tracks on the Ugly Funk label, keenly playing up to label type with rough dancefloor killers that are presented without smooth edges. Under The Radar, which sprawls over 2 12”s, is a mutant thing that collects up tracks that have made a bi...view item »

Christer Bothén
Ljudskulptur För 5

Had to be me, apparently, did this review. Why? Because it’s drone with reeds, which is one thing half our office is tired of and another thing that half our office pruprots to hate: woodwind. I don’t know why you buy records from us, I really, just, don’t. But I digress from trying to incentivise you towards a purchase, so her...view item »

Family of the Year
Family of the Year

LA alt rock four piece Family of the Year win the coveted most unexpected band my dad likes trophy of 2016.

Kaiju
Seven Sins

‘Seven Sins’ is the debut album from Jamie Schildhauer and Paul White’s Kaiju project, but you wouldn’t know it from listening alone. They have been on the modern dub scene since 2012, releasing a number of coruscating 12” singles for Osiris Music and latterly on their current home, Mala’s Deep Medi. Their edg...view item »

Lies
Plague

Brutalist bludgeoning hardcore from a group that features members of The Hope Conspiracy and Skin Like Iron. No time is wasted here: Lies pummel their way through Plague’s allotted 8 tracks so fast that the whole album fits onto one side of vinyl: the B-side is taken up with an et...view item »

Rattle
Rattle

Since Phil’s the drummer in this office, we’re asking him to review this one via proxy. His thoughts: “it’s drumming”. True. “It’s two people who sound like they’re learning to play the drums competently”. A potential truth. “Is it just drumming?” No. There’s some singing. &...view item »

Ages and Ages
Something to Ruin

Heart lifting pop that sounds like it was recorded in your front room. It wasn’t. It was captured by Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock’s studio, but the personality of this record is it’s strength. Acoustic indie pop filled with gleeful melodies and laid back choral vocals done by all of the ban...view item »

Sewn Leather
Freak On Hashish / Longboarding Is A Crime

Are you angry? Had enough of your job, your life, your broken down car and your girlfriend/boyfriend not putting out and not doing the dishes? Haven’t we all. Are you looking for a theme tune to aid you in your rampage as you sort out your life while spewing angry, long syllabulled rants at passers-by a la Mike Leigh’s Naked? This is...view item »

Boreal Network
Itasca Road Trip

Oh looky, a Bandcamp favourite! In lovely vinyl form! Boreal Network’s Nicole Johnson is a Seattle-based producer; she has crafted here a sun-dappled, hazily nostalgic LP of woozy electronica miniatures. Itasca Road Trip, originally released last year as a cassette, is an aural tour of Itasca State Park in her Minnesota home. I’d lov...view item »

Faster Action
Faster Action

Usually a pairing with Robert Bergmann, Interstellar Funk goes it alone under the Faster Action title for these cheeky tools many DJs would be thankful for. Two tracks offering strong beds of rhythm, the first a 909 explosion and the second a heavier metallic affair. Great backbone stuff for any...view item »

The Legends
It's Love

From Sweden with love, Stockholm band The Legends deliver an album of characteristically smooth songs about love and life. It’s Love is their fourth studio album and the first since Johan Angergard turned forty. Fans of his Labrador label won’t be disappointed with these lush, emotional recordings. Out on vi...view item »

Clay Rendering

Best Available Technology
Twisted Ladder

Any day of the week give me some melancholic repeato techno and I'll be happy for awhile. The lead track here is a delicious slab of just that that has gorgeous melancholy synth and two step beats cut into an awkward repeating sample. marvellous. This has in fact four tracks and is a hand stamped edition of 200 so be quick if you want one. ...view item »

Yaws
DOUBT

Debut release from producer Yaws: in fact DOUBT is also the debut release for the label, Purely Physical. These 4 tracks seem somewhat informed by the slightly-too-slow sounds of Andy Stott, except that Yaws pulls back slightly on the delay / decay front. Meaty, textural club sounds all...view item »

Pierrot Lunaire
Dog Chakra

OK, I’ll cut to the chase just to save everyone’s precious time. Droning electronic grooves, looped and chopped up and spliced side-by-side with organ miniatures mangled by distorted, hissing tape. Opening track, ‘Elegy for a Plastic Bag’, on this latest Opal Tape by Pierrot Lunaire sequences these spiralling elements sed...view item »

Rooney
Washed Away

R-OO-N-EY! Should he be played up front or at the top of a diamond formation in midfield? He’s certainly made that position his own in recent years and at the end of the day, he’s got to be England’s future. Although this Rooney seem to be an indie-pop band from LA who have teen-friendly pop for you to jump aro...view item »

Scott & Charlene's Wedding
Delivered

This absurdly-named Australian band are back with this short four song EP of dishevelled, shambling pop punk. The opening title track is a perky little thing like the Velvet Underground playing on borrowed instruments fronted by Joe Mangel. They are quite the rock and roll combo what with their w...view item »

Audion
Gut Man Cometh / Destroyer

Audion is the long-running I-Love-Techno project from Matthew Dear, and recent album Alpha was first full album released under the name in 10 whole years! To celebrate, 2 of those mighty dancefloor cuts have been extracted and remixed, one by FOLD and one by Matthew Herbert...view item »

Channel D
Unravelling

I should have given this to our Jamie  - the first track is called ‘Birds when Disturbed’. He likes birds  - not sure if he likes disturbing them or not, I’ll have to ask. Anyway the track in question is a lovely slow piece of atmospherics with vocals that couldn’t sound more like early ...view item »

Vapauteen
This Coercion Pt. II

Hard-jacking new tracks from Shawn O’Sullivan’s Vapauteen guise, working the project’s signature style of relentless beat-pummel and acidic synth lines. This Coercion Pt. II neatly complements the recent Pt. I: taken as a pair, they add up to some of the year’s most form...view item »

All Your Sisters
Uncomfortable Skin

There is a track on here that is near perfect which makes it almost doubly disappointing that I can't find anything here I enjoy as much. I may have written before about hearing a song in 1982 that I never found out what it was. It sounded.... just like this  - terrifying guitars, drum machine that eerie sense of lurking doom that post punk...view item »

Aphex Twin
Cheetah

Aphex Twin, the notorious cheater himself, has successfully vintage-synthed the money out of your pockets. No, this LP does not have 15-note polyphony, and as we all already know, the D James man can make music on anything, no matter how badly respected or obscure. He’ll find a way. So it’s not really surprising that the god of music...view item »

Tin Man, Jozef K & Winter Son
Acid Test 11

This record is by a band called Bart but features saxophones so what the fuck is going on, Lisa?

Ford And Lopatin

This is a pretty little thing. The new Ford and Lopatin single is a picture disc 12" that comes in four different variations. They're all pretty similar, though, so I'm not sure I'd recommend shelling out the full fifty-six smackers for the set...the only variation between them is a different X-ray picture on the B-sides.

Young Moon
Colt

This new music from Young Moon looked at one point like it might never come into being, after the relationship the initial 2012 debut was rooted in fell apart. But some new blood in the band (Syam Zapalowski) got things moving again, and the moody confessional songs of Colt were born. Out on Western Vin...view item »

Classixx
Faraway Reach

In approaching their second album Classixx wanted to feature numerous vocalists with varying styles and make themselves the constant that tied them together, so the aptly titled Faraway Reach features How To Dress Well, T-Pain, Passion Pit, De Lux, ...view item »

Burkhard Beins | Chris Abrahams
Instead of the Sun

This year, Chris Abrahams has been treating us to his very own episode of ambient Cribs, showing us around his house and each of the nooks and crannies he drones into. ‘Fluid To The Influence’, a record of tinkering field sounds and accidental melodies, sounded like kitchen minimalism prepared for piano and tupperware; his collaborat...view item »

Dario Dell'Aere
Eagles In The Night

Dario Dell’Aere’s voice sounds like an old American-Soul crooner, but comes backed with full-blast 1985 Italo disco backing on Eagles In The Night. It’s a groovy time and no mistake. The 12”, remastered of course, is housed in a replica sleeve along wi...view item »

Robert Curgenven
Climata

If anyone’s been to Yorkshire Sculpture Park lately, you may have discovered a strange room within a red brick enclosure on the side of the hill. Like a giant boiled egg, the room has had its top lopped off, exposing the contents to the heavens and all the r...view item »

David First
Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 1: Études for Acoustic Guitar

I wonder what it’s like to live inside David First’s guitar. It’s probably cramped, hard to get to sleep, and reminiscent of a walking nightmare -- I imagine you also probably live most of your life upside down. Developing purposely wonky tunes a long way away from the epicentre of a melody, his experiments get explained away w...view item »

The Dieterich & Barnes this record is attributed to is John Dieterich and Jeremy Barnes, of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw...view item »

Jaye Bartell
Light Enough

Unbelievable front cover. Simply unbelievable. A pasty and awkward Bartrell in mid air. I guess it signifies he is 'light enough'.  It’s a shame that my first impressions of this were that awkward photo as this is really lovely. Bartrell has a marvellous chocolate brown voice which spouts words ...view item »

Some Bizarre
Don't Be Afraid

Italian trio Some Bizarre recorded and released their very first production, Don’t Be Afraid in 1983. It’s a gorgeous period piece of synth-disco, an easy floor-filler with strong summer-night vibes. And Johann Sebastian Bach...view item »

Max D
Boost

More off-kilter house from the artist formerly known as Maxmillion Dunbar, Max D. This third album on vinyl LP from Future Times is part weird digital sheen and part analogue machine-music. But it’s all powered by Max’s sharp melodies. I’m not sure when house and techno become so off-kilter tha...view item »


Motor City Remixes

Accompanying the vinyl reissue of Motor City, Sand Circles’ (aka Martin Heterich) slab of neon synth melancholy is this set of remixes of the original material. Some emphasise the Detroit associations, some strip out the dance in favour of the drone. 4 different approaches, from producers includin...view item »

Coves
Peel

Coves are an English duo whose music seems like a constant struggle between psychedelic garage and luscious, minimal pop music. Peel, from 1965 Records, does a good job of capturing this dynamic; the glowing production is much more polished, but they’re still committed to lo-fi instru...view item »

Deep Throats
Good Bad Pretty

Deep Throats were an old San Francisco band with a heady garage rock sound. This release gathers up their final recordings, previously unheard by the public at large. Good Bad Pretty is released by Castle Face, the essential garage rock imprint of John O’Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, for...view item »

James K
Pet

James K is pretty wild. On her debut album Pet, she rages all over the place. Whispering over beats, or humming psychotic musings in between warped electronic noise, James K will never allow a dull moment. After the Sokit 7” last year, we’ve been waiting for more music - ready to run if we had to, b...view item »

Wax Witches
Memory Painting

Burger Records continue a sweet run of releases with some snotty hardcore punk from Wax Witches. This solo project from Bleeding Knees Club’s Alex Wall takes a garage punk template, but adds some pop hooks and one-man band style. Memory Painting&nb...view item »

Korallreven
Here In Iowa Remix EP

Korraleven are no longer a going concern, having bowed out with the original version of Here In Iowa. But they are surely allowed this little bonus release, which gathers some assorted treats together, including a Peaking Lights remix and a live cover of Guns & Roses’ ‘N...view item »

Brassfoot
Realms

Cheap and wonderfully nasty sounding DIY techno from Brassfoot. Realms, on vinyl 12”, is refreshingly agro and unpolished, mashing together house drums, lo-fi samples and abrasive textures. This free-form and abstract electronica, on the Apron label, reminds us of Actress ...view item »

DJC
Club Constructions 7

It’s been three years since the last Club Constructions release. DJC steps up to bring his rough and ready, straight-to-dancefloor bangers. The mysterious DJC joins the ranks of Jam City, L-Vis 1990, Lil Silva and Helix in this fascinating...view item »

Jorge Velez

Jorge Velez delivers a curious set of “animal-themed electronic exploration”, utilising only, a Microbrute synth and samples from a Fairlight CMI. Animals Disk is overtly digital, almost plastic in tone, but Velez does a ...view item »

Neil Landstrumm
Clawing At Sand EP

Techno icon Neil Landstrumm continues an impeccable run of releases with the rough and sleazy techno of the Clawing at Sand EP. Landstrumm’s approach to 4x4 techno has always been a little weird and this vinyl 12” is very much in character, with plenty of harsh snares and surreal organ outbursts...view item »

Za!
Loloismo

Za! are a powerful Spanish duo, ferociously mashing genres and sounds together with little regard for decorum. Loloismo, released as a collaboration between Hot Salvation and the Audacious Art Experiment labels, rolls around joyously in a pit of drums, keyboards, trumpets, dubsteps and math-rocks. Quite a ride....view item »

Vektormusik
Time Woke Up In Darkness excerpts Vol 2

Danish Duo Vektormusik present, in true minimalist style, a set of ten excerpts from music composed for theatrical types Carte Blanche in beautiful old-but-modern Copenhagen. An infusion of drone and static-based glitch form the backbone of the work, with plinked piano and rolling and tumbling synth playing nicely o’er top. Second ...view item »

Masha Qrella
Keys

Masha Qrella’s new record vanquishes the shyness that has played a part in some of her earlier music, replacing it with an emotional forthrightness that bewitches. Keys sings, in detail, about Qrella’s inner life, over subtle electronically-tinged pop songs. Cool, noirish stuff. Out on Morr ...view item »

Aries
Adieu or Die

Aries is the solo project of Isabel Fernández Reviriego, who is responsible for every little detail of these rich productions. Her Spanish-language vocals, harmoniously multi-tracked, fly around the centre of the mix, surrounded by stacks of shiny sound. Adieu Or Die has that sugar-rush effect of...view item »

Experimental Techno from Israel Vines here, with 3 varied tracks on 12” vinyl. 2 dark, thrusting dancefloor demons and 1 dubbed-out piece of ambience.

MXLX
^___^

Matt Loveridge’s project MXLX is one of his noisier ones, and this new album is one of his strongest works under the name. ^____^ storms through desolate black metal, howling distortion clouds and delicate guitar parts en route to a transcendent annihilation. 250 12” vinyl copies on FuckPunk...view item »

M Ax Noi Mach
On The Edge

On The Edge is the first full-length record we’ve heard from M Ax Noi Mach in 6 years. Pleasingly, the time away hasn’t resulted in him cleaning up his act: his negative feelings are still as raw as ever, and the soundscapes are mostly stark synth and industrial beats. It’s a menacing listen, the produ...view item »

Jilk
In Need Of Tess

In Need Of Tess combines 2 pieces from Jilk’s soundtrack to a Nim Jethwa short film with a remix of Nuala Honan and the title track, a collaboration of sorts with Nic Kane and Hester Sorel Moriarty Thompson. Jilk are glitchy and m...view item »

Les Sins
Michael

I really enjoyed Chaz Bundick’s first two records as Toro Y Moi but he started to lose his way on ‘Anything in Return’ which didn’t reap the dividends expected from the leaps he made from ‘Causers of This’ to ‘Underneath the Pine’. Here he is though under a more dance influenced mo...view item »

Abstrakto
S/T / Remex

A distinctive fusion of Latin American music and the LA electronic beats scene. Abstrakto is Astrud Sierra and producer DJ Balthazaar Getty and on S/T/Remex they mash together global musical scenes and raw rap and R&B. This 180 gram black and white double LP also comes with a remix album that pushes the orig...view item »

Strategy
Information Pollution

Startegy is the project of Paul Dickow, a producer from Portland; his latest album consists of four lengthy tracks of static and drone to entrance and disorient you. Opener, "Public Voyeurs" - at just over seven minutes the shortest of the four tracks - begins with what appears to be the soft, distant chatter of unidentifiable life form...view item »

NY*AK
Dollar EP

4 new tracks from Newcastle producer NY*AK. The Dollar EP was made on a delicious array of vintage analogue synths and drum machines, and the sonic feel throughout is warm, slippery and plenty groovy. Featuring guest-work from Mark Hand, Misumami and Ian Blevins. 12&rdq...view item »

Oliver Ho and Danny Passarella
Multi

Oliver Ho produces music on the axes of techno and noise. Danny Passarella works with synthesisers, but also designs clothes. Together they’ve made Multi, a conceptual EP on the subject of gender (non-)binaries. Four tracks of thoughtful synth-scapes and reverbed techno. 12” release on ...view item »

Casio Royale
In Basements Vol. 2

Casio Royale takes another trip down to Dixon Avenue Basement, where it sounds like a killer party is going down. Gorgeously squelchy acid synths and thick, thick bass ensure that a good time is had by all (apart from maybe Tories: take a look at the B2 track title…). In Basements Vol. 2 is out on Dixon Avenue Ba...view item »

David Vassalotti
Broken Rope

David Vassalotti leads the 4AD group Merchandise, but this album finds him striking off on his own: he writes, performs and produces every track on Broken Rope, and is also responsible for the artwork. Consequently, what we hear here is a clear representation of Vassalotti, his loves an...view item »

Jire
Zang

The producer behind Jire is just 20 years old: remarkable when you hear the talent on display here. Zang pokes its head through the door of the club for a while, but mostly prefers to hang out in the abstract computer music suite next door. A cavalcade of frantic digital sonics, lovely stuff. 12” on No Pain In Pop...view item »

Tadeo
Chronicles Of The Future

Simply put, Tadeo’s Chronicles of the Future is minimal techno made with classical instrumentation. Violins, pianos, cellos and more produce tight, repeated loops whilst the artist covers it with synthesizer. The result is fun-loving, beautifully repetitive neoclassical music that you can’t help but tap your foot too...view item »

Gazebos
Die Alone

Man, I don’t know. Does this record even have any hooks or are they just retroactively photoshopping them into the songs? How the fuck do any of these songs even stay glued together? Gazebos begin on a song that’s an excuse for a reason to go eat cheesecake -- called “Just Get High”, you’d be excused for assuming it...view item »

Unkle Funkle
Supernatural

Unkle Funkle takes a break from his time in White Fang to throw together this entertaining sound mass. Take a look at the sleeve art for Supernatural and you’ll get a feel for the sound: a colourful, shiny fantasy of electronic pop. Funkle is having fun here, and you surely will t...view item »

Authentic feelings band Bird Dog come outside to revel in the early-evening sunset and make/Instagram their own soundtrack. ‘Misty Shrub’ shows off the band’s influences with all the sleeves worn: it begins with the folksy dramatics of Ben Howard before pushing into a fuller, more electrifying indie rock sound, kinda like the L...view item »

Binny
Shlaguance EP

Binny is back with more dark and sordid house/techno hybrids on the Shlaguance EP.

This release on CLFT is limited to 500 copies and hi...view item »

Here's another release on the ever prolific Mexican Summer label.

Pete Um

The Donkeys
Midnight Palm

The Donkeys make thick nostalgic easy-listening, head-swinging indie. The San Diego four piece went into the studio with Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Devendra Banhart) to produce this mini LP. 5 tracks of unabashed looking back on fond memories. Cue old vi...view item »

Telegram have spent an awful long time ensuring that they look like a rock band but it’s often the case that the best rock bands look like the very last people on earth who should be playing music  - the Pixies for example.

Cocoanut Groove
How To Build A Maze

We have long been fans of Cocoanut Groove here at the towers so its to our utter delight that they have now signed to Fortuna Pop and dropped the big one so to speak.

CHAPPO
Future Former Self

CHAPPO take their New York City origins and pour them into a psychedelic soul-pop that often sounds more like the wide beaches and plazas of LA than the mean streets of NY. Must be testament to their powers of musical conjuring that a listener to Future Former Self will be readily convinced. Out on the Votiv label....view item »

El Fog
Rebuilding Vibes

I reckon analogue synths are probably my favourite musical sound but a close contender would be the mighty vibraphone. From Lionel Hampton to Tortoise/Mice Parade there are many fine examples of this instrument at work. El Fog a.k.a Berlin-based Japanese artist Masayoshi Fujita seems pretty keen on the instrument too as he's dedicated an entire pro...view item »

Joey LaBeija
Shattered Dreams

Puerto Rican musical heritage and contemporary hard electronic influences meld together in the person of Joey LaBeija, whose Shattered Dreams is a dynamic set of high-action rollers that don’t stick to one formula.

Andrea Penso
Ritorno All'Acqua

Andrea Penso has used those most essential of tools to create this work: field recordings and tape loops.

Single-sided c20 cassette, released in an edition ...view item »

Astor
Lina in Nida

I have never seen such self-hype as exists within this LP’s press release. Right now, I am apparently listening to a fictional anthem for ISIS-occupied Britain, and the last track promises the best sound ever made or heard.

Brian Wilson
No Pier Pressure

A question regularly posed by seasoned Beach Boy watchers over recent years concerns how much Brian Wilson is in charge of his current output.

Unashamedly synth-tastic instrumentals from Higamos Hogamos’ Steve Webster.

Nonclassical imposes its strict remix policy -- you can only remix with sounds that already exists in the track -- on a roster of famous electronic artists, from Hot Chip having a go at the music of Gabriel Prokofiev to Thom Yorke using his DJ skills to do things with 'Cortical Songs'.

Doom metal hailing from the chilly climes of Sweden. Throneless present their self-titled debut album proudly, as an expression of hatred for society.

Phork
Disappear In Raveland

Whilst existing in club parameters, Disappear in Raveland by Phork is a minimalist and experimental work that also takes in the surreal and adventurous. Within these parameters, Chicago house, footwork, drone and and techno are all given equal weight. The reconstructed footwork beats could make this the ace in the hole ...view item »

TRAAMS
Modern Dancing

I would probably bet my house on the fact that between their previous album 'Cissa' and this new one, the members of Traams had gone to see Ought play.   The first few tracks are so in awe of the Canadian band that it’s almost comical. ‘AnB’ particularly has the skewed ...view item »
