FNDTY – Never Die

Fandi Aditya chose to do it differently and because he operates on his lonesome it does make sense. He is informed by loud guitars with real song structures but the tools at his disposal are from an...

Solomon Grey – Firechild

I know, this could well be the Scissor Sisters with some of their geeky brothers supplying the admittedly fancy electronic noodling in the background. And don’t be fooled by websites that claim the...

Mogwai – George Square Thatcher Death Party (Justin K Broadrick Reshape)

I’ll be honest and admit that I never ventured beyond ‘Rano Pano’ and ‘San Pedro’ for Mogwai’s last album ‘Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will’. Typical of the malaise in their output I scoffed and...

Lapland – Unwise

Mostly because we’re fans of that Northern outpost and its inhabitants Lapland would have appeared here even if his entire output consisted of the analogue recordings of a longnailed old lady with a...

Winter Sport – Northern Summer

What a strange and rather fabulous song. Full of contradictions that extend from its title to the band who made it and from the mix of plodding 80’s percussive techniques to the slinky 21st century...

Germany Germany – Just Go (ft. Steffaloo)

Given the night that’s in it here is a song from Germany Germany. Not a German in sight mind, just Drew Harris from Canada. And what a pioneer Harris is, making sweet electronica and involving himself...

Tracey Thorn – Swimming (Visionquest Remix)

How to choose the perfect summer track to compliment the exotic conditions being sported across this green (turning patchily brown of late) land of ours? By switching to an unexpected source of...

Camp Counselors – Attean (Feat. Psychic Twin)

What is a Lefse anyway, a bad right turn? Never thought to ask myself until this evening after arriving upon another delight from the venerable Californian record label of the same name. For the last...

Washed Out – It All Feels Right

Ernest Greene makes music for the summer time, or more specifically (for those of us in wet climes) for days when the sun beats down and the only activity worth attempting is 40 winks. Whether he can...

Spirit Spine – Atlantic Downs

No it’s not a lost Ian Brown track, instead it features the voice and arrangements of one Joseph Denney who last year created a minor classic in ‘Atlantic Downs’. It sank without trace which would be...

Axel Boman – Fantastic Piano

As well as being the last gasp of a world infected with politeness and efforts concentrated on tasks not entirely attention grabbing Friday evenings offers an opportunity to dally on something a bit...

Satchmode – Old Fears

Few songs so easily slip into consciousness as this one from L.A. duo Satchmode. They are fresh out of the blocks and appear unencumbered with having to sound like anyone else apart from themselves....

Desert – Desert

If you’re wondering what the strange lyrics are let me put you out of your misery as (the Minty Fresh bound) Desert sing in Catalan. Comprised of Cristina Checa and Eloi Caballé this Barcelona duo...

Outfit – Thank God I Was Dreaming

Although the central hook is one step shy of fantastically memorable the surrounding electro/vocal patter is gorgeous. And this from a Liverpool band that certainly lean on an 80’s template without...

Photoreal – Uncle

You could probably call it the Washed Out effect, the sound of a melange of electronica and dream pop corralled into a wistful whole. On this occasion the beautiful noise comes courtesy of Diwas...

Carriages – Iron And Fire

Surprising that Rusted Rail haven’t been on their case because this is the distillation of what that fine Irish label produces. As it is Carriages seem entirely happy with the way things are panning...

Grouplove – Ways To Go

I heard this for the first time via the charm of a set of cheap speakers plugged into an even cheaper phone yet it sprung to life regardless. To be truthful it was the electronic pulses that resonated...

Kormac – Everything Around Me

Dubliner DJ Kormac doesn’t do things by half. Not content with just supplying some of the coolest beats/brass/grooves of 2014 on his album ‘Doorsteps’ he also enlisted a myriad of arty celebrities...

Ghost Culture – Guidecca

James Greenwood as Ghost Culture lives in the magical world that is co-inhabited by Daniel Avery (hardly surprising then that they both reside on the same London record label). The collective drone...

Evan Tyler and Topless Literati – You’re Hysterical

It doesn’t take too much noise to make a cult dance record and by that I mean it doesn’t need to thump thump you into dancefloor submission. All that is generally required is something just above the...
