Oh, and….been following our genre guides? This time it’s Indie Pop. So wash your cardigan, comb your fringe and join us in a celebration of all things shambling.

Jay Glass Dubs


9/10 from Ant

Aphex Twin

Collapse EP

9/10 from Ant

Nicolas Jaar


9/10 from Robin

Of all the things Nicolas Jaar has ever done, I think ‘Pomegranates’ stands the tallest. It is a singular achievement in a career that has focused on the avant on »

Sarah Davachi

Gave In Rest

9/10 from Robin

The terrifyingly busy schedule of Sarah Davachi seems to know no end. As long as there’s an ambient label who considers it their turn to release your music, you’ on »

Menace Beach

Black Rainbow Sound

8/10 from Robin

Last week Sauna Youth released a record and so did Menace Beach. It’s a conspiracy, believe you me: bands who ruled up the place in approximately ‘15 to ‘16 on »

Colleen Green

Casey’s Tape / Harmontown Loops

8/10 from Robin

Couple chords is all you need, right? Colleen Green spins songs out of simplicity on this charming, hyper-lackadaisical comp-athon, filling our ears with melodic throughlines on »

A-Sun Amissa

Ceremony In The Stillness

8/10 from Robin

Pals of the pennines Gizeh Records release another LP by their house band, A-Sun Amissa. I’m personally always a fan of people seasoning their post-rock broth with a on »

Knife Knights

1 Time Mirage

8/10 from Robin

Unlike our description writer Fred, who apparently took to this record’s description box to cathartically complain about the state of things, I actually liked those on »

Infernal Coil

Within A World Forgotten

8/10 from Robin

Honestly, Infernal Coil, it’s like you’re not even trying. That logo is the kind of bad handwriting I was told off for ceremoniously in school. It’s a on »

Shinichi Atobe


8/10 from Ant

One 12” on Chain Reaction back in 2001 and then Shinichi Atobe went AWOL. He’s now on his fourth album for Demdike Stare’s DDS label since re-emerging in on »

Thomas Ankersmit

Homage To Dick Raaijmakers
