Top news

We’re still here post Beast From the East, which we initially thought was overrated but now realise it was actually ahead of its time. A bit like Can, I suppose, or Arthur Russell. But colder.    

On with what hasn’t been frozen.

New:

Snow….

  • Catnip-dealing indie rock superstars The Breeders.   
  • Moaning. Phil’s favourite pastime and also Sub Pop post punkers.
  • Soccer Mommy. Don’t worry she’s only 1% less winsome on mid-fi new record.   
  • Twitter’s Tracey Thorn shows that mums can still discotheque.  
  • Suuns make their weirdest record.  
  • Largely another The Men record.  
  • Buffalo Tom for your throw back.
  • Latest from Lisbon hypnagogicists Beautify Junkyards on Ghost Box.
  • The Titus Andronicus album is rousing, euphoric and terrible.
  • Jonathan Wilson is here for when you want more War of Drugs.
  • It’s not just Aphex Twin and ice cream you know. Gwenno sings an entire album in Cornish.  
  • Horror and intensity from Anna Von Hauswolff.   
  • Superorganism veer between brilliant and utterly annoying.
  • Rolo Tomassi are now actual grown ups making hardcore.
  • To Destroy A City do what most post rock bands do eventually and sing.
  • The Gentle Good are very happy to be Welsh.
  • Nightports with Matthew Bourne make corridors of sound for Nils Frahm fans.
  • Embrace say love is a basic need. Also talent is useful in their line of work.
  • Serafina Steer re-appears making quirky post punk with Bas Jan.

Re-issues:

Slush….

  • Coil ‘Time Machines’ BLUE vinyl re-issue.
  • Hookworms. Remembering when they were little.   
  • Lashings and lashings of Pet Shop Boys.    
  • Glacially paced ambience from Dean McPhee.
  • Atlas. What the hell is this?


Ant’s Electronic Round-up:

He’s trapped in the house with three kids and a Dave Noyze compilation….

  • Swindon’s finest - Jack Dangers’ Meat Beat Manifesto still going strong with his first album in 7 years.
  • Potter Natalizia Zen aka Alessio Natalizia (Not Waving), Colin Potter (NWW) and Guido Zen (Vactrol Park) bust out their synths for some modern cosmic trippers.
  • Misty, graceful, choral ambient and fragile, radiant drones from Dedekind Cut on Kranky.
  • Darker shades of sci-fi ambient, dusky bass and Mediterranean strings from Creta.
  • Melancholic trip/glitch-hop from 1954 on Project: Mooncircle.
  • Oldskool breakbeat techno/hardcore schooled cuts from Pangea on Hessle Audio.
  • Croatian producer Egoless EP on Deep Medi Musik, including that ‘Empire of Dirt’ tune he’s been hammering on dubplate. Limited copies!

  • DJ Taye blurs hip-hop with footwork on his Still Trippin’ album on Hyperdub.
  • If Miami Sound Machine made acid house and sung in Korean it might sound like Peggy Gou.
  • Chrome plated, greyscale techno tunnellers from Von Grall on Horo. Recommended for fans of stuff on Zooloft, Prologue etc.
  • Booming, heavy, UK Funky flavoured techno and a functional chimer with bowel emptying subs from Beneath on his Mistry label.
  • Secret Circuit in cosmic/tropical mode as E Ruscha V on Beats In Space.
  • Handy Frankie Knuckles TRAX classics 2x12” incl. 100% pure eternal house weepers ‘It's a Cold World’, ‘Your Love’ etc.
