Listening to this latest album from Liz Harris’ Grouper project it’s easy to forget how much of a hard sell her music was back when 'Way Their Crept’ landed with us back in 2005. Her eerie, layered mix of bare vocals, guitar and tape delay didn't quite fit in with what anyone else was really doing on the scene back then - and it completely knocked us out even if no one was buying it. By the time her breakthrough ‘Dragging a Dead Deer…’ arrived on Type three years later she was more or less playing to a baying mob hungry for any little morsel she cared to throw their way, her (by now) more fleshed out sh… Read more

The mercurial Mr. Blunt keeps everyone guessing with the 'Black Metal' follow-up to his widely acclaimed LP, 'The Redeemer' (2013). Let's get it out of the way: it's not black metal, in the cold, Northerly sense, at least. Musically, its palette actually bears more resemblance to early Factory or Rough Trade records by The Durutti Column or Scritti Politti - or even Serge Gainsbourg - than anything remotely connected to Bathory or Burzum. And taken in light of his oeuvre, both with Hype Williams and solo, it's actually a canny appropriation of the term, subverting pre-conceived and connoted id… Read more

Richard Dawson is a skewed troubadour at once charming and abrasive. His shambolically virtuosic guitar playing stumbles from music hall tune- smithery to spidery swatches of noise-colour, swathed in amp static and teetering on the edge of feedback.

BEATS / HIP HOP

Cat. Number: DOM015

‘Heal’ is 21 year-old AxxoN N’s 4 year labour of love, a debut album with each track addressing and coming to terms with states of depression and anxiety. Sourced almost entirely by samples, it’s a work that is hard to categorise, perhaps a distant cousin of Autechre and the more fluid experiments of Kraftwerk around the time of Radio Activity.

Sasu Ripatti is one of electronic music’s most prolific and eclectic producers. Throughout the last two decades Ripatti has explored every imaginable genre with over 20 albums under aliases such as Luomo and Sistol. A classically trained percussionist, the Finnish native has also performed as a part of the Moritz Von Oswald Trio and his own Vladislav Delay Quartet. He returns now under his Vladislav Delay moniker with a uniquely inspired album. ‘Visa’ was a product of pure happenstance. In early 2014, Ripatti was denied entry to the United States and was forced to cancel an entire tour. Suddenly … Read more

"Blame it on the Ramones. After Deerhoof finished recording demos for La Isla Bonita this past February, they began rehearsing for an upcoming tour. Halfway through a run-through of a long-time Deerhoof live favorite, their cover of the Ramones classic "Pinhead," someone offhandedly asked, "Why don't we ever write a song like this?" So Greg quickly dashed off a song on a scrap of paper, showed it to the band, and they recorded the breakneck stomper "Exit Only" in one take. "And we suddenly realized," Greg says, "this is the whole thing, this is what the whole record is about! A little backgro… Read more

MANUAL - Memory and Matter: Selected Remixes, Rarities and Unreleased Tracks 2007-2014, Darla
"Memory and Matter comprises selected remixes and rarities from the past seven years, nine of them previously unreleased and many of them only issued only on hard to find EPs or as Japanese release bonus tracks. Far from being merely a collection of every single oddity, these tracks were carefully selected into a consistent whole that maintains the same high standard of proper Manual albums. This two-disc compilation is also a labor of love. Like it's predecessor, Lost Days, Open Skies and Streaming Tides, released in 2007, disc one de… Read more

Cat. Number: hpr101

The Anamoanon is Ned Oldham’s project, backed by his brothers Will and Paul. This fourth Anamoanon album displays delicacy and intensity played with homespun recklessness. Pooling high vocals and harmonies, spare enigmatic lyrics, snaky vocals and rock chord progressions, they remind many of quality 60’s neo-traditionalist mavericks, imbuing alt-country with a rougher, rockier edge. Check.
