"The fourth studio album by acclaimed Belgian cold wave group The Names, known for their early association with Factory Records and producer Martin ‘Zero’ Hannett. Recorded in 2014, Stranger Than You marks a conscious return to the sounds and styles explored on their debut album Swimming in 1982. “There’s a strong element of reconnection,” explains singer/songwriter (and bassist) Michel Sordinia. “Yet at the same time it’s also about developing your own legitimate strangeness, just as the great Surrealist poet Rene Char invited his readers to do. A new mystery singing in your bones.” Mich… Read more

"Breakup albums mark a turning point for a band: the moment when their sound completely changes and reaches a new level of emotional clarity. All that heartbreak and malaise condensed into any single record often makes for a defining piece of work, no matter the genre. The best records explore the nooks and crannies of sadness, learning it inside and out - celebrating it. Ceremony's fifth studio album, ‘The L-Shaped Man’, uses singer Ross Farrar's recent breakup as a platform to explore loneliness and emotional weariness but it is by no means a purely sad album. Rather than look inward, Farr… Read more

"Novella’s formation was the result of an instant spark—guitarist Hollie Warren, guitarist Sophy Hollington, and bassist Suki Sou met through mutual friends in Brighton in 2010, where they quickly realized that they shared a common love for ‘60s counterculture and bands like Black Sabbath, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Pale Saints. The addition of drummer Iain Laws in 2011 and keyboardist Isabel Spurgeon in 2014 solidified the group into a propulsive engine, capable of welding woozy, cosmic psychedelia to sustained squalls of flanged-out, far-out dream pop.

"The next chapter in the ongoing story of Juan Wauters.

Inspired by both the arrangements of Uruguayan songwriter Jaime Roos and the production of American master Dr. Dre, this collection of songs presents his continued approach to existential questioning through pop music.

Heading on from their Daphne Oram reworks, Alessio Natalizia (Not Waving) and Sam Willis' Walls recapture the woozy motorik psych-disco appeal of their much-loved early work in 'Urals'. Whilst Natalizia has been busy forging a darker, stripped sound as Not Waving in recent times, Sam Willis obviously gets him to lighten up a lot here. The result is a radiant suite of seven succinct synth hymns; seducing with the creamy title groove and twisting between the urgent arpeggiations of 'Moon Eye' thru the mystic alien swamps of 'Altai' to ascendent psychedelic pop in 'Voluta' and the spiralling 'Tongue Pad', to… Read more

The results will likely be a shock to many, and exceed the expectations of many others, presenting a swirling session of lush prog-disco closer in vision to OPN than any of the modern nu-disco travellers.
