Weekly Update Sons of Raphael, Mush, Lost Trax, Grayson Gilmour, Aaron Dilloway, and more...

It’s half past November, and we’re rolling gleefully into the year-end festivities. First, of course, we have to arbitrarily determine what our favourite record of the year is. Thanks for all of your suggestions, even those among you who think shouting “Elbow!” at us is a thing -- you’re going to the back of the class, but you’re doing it in style. Until the big reveal, you can rest assured we’ll be yelling some new albums at you, so let’s get going. And as the old saying goes: “Remember remember… that it’s currently November”.

According to our review team at least...

Paul and Linda McCartney


10/10 from Robin

They’re really paying me to do this. To just write a bunch of nonsense words, nary a review, about Paul and Linda McCartney’s ‘Ram’. The truth is that on »

James Green

Donkey Jukebox

9/10 from Jamie

So, James Green makes admittedly beautiful donkey artwork and you can peruse images of his linocuts and screenprints on the interwebs -- but it’s principally his music on »



9/10 from Benn

Aaron Dilloway


9/10 from Ant

The ever amazing Copenhagen based label Cejero score another ace with this brilliantly demented long player from the master of deranged tape mayhem Aaron Dilloway. I have on »



9/10 from Ant

Sweet Christmas, this tape from Brendan Murray and Howard Stelzer is doing some weird shit to me… the first fifteen-minute track has vaporised me and left my component on »

Leo Anibaldi


9/10 from Ant

In a career spanning some twenty-six years, Italian techno legend Leo Anibaldi has released tons of 12”s but only made three albums. His second, ‘Muta’ was on »
