Le Voci Del Buio is the document of a one-off nocturnal collaboration between My Cat Is An Alien brothers Roberto and Maurizio Opalio with Ramona Ponzini (of Praxinoscope and Painting Petals On Planet Ghost) with an additional supporting cast of "radical folk musicians of the Western Alps". The end result of this improvisation session proves to be among the most accessible and beguiling of all the Elliptical Noise output, featuring haunted acoustic/classical guitar passages and a host of traditional string instruments indigenous to the region (some of which apparently date back… Read more

Cat. Number: TEAMACRE004

Skweee vocalist-of-choice Michael Black Electro, aka MBE, wrangles four remixes from Desto, Clouds, Teeth and RPK. All tracks originally appeared on his 'Stripped Anatomy' LP, his unique blend of avant-rap a la Mush styles with an oddly mystic sensibility. Desto's remix is top of the pile, a darkened post-garage number with much potential. Clouds also revise 'Mustang' but make it sound more like an older Boom Bip beat and Teeth turn it into a floating 2-stepper. While RPK's mix of 'Helicoid Trajectory' mixes Pan Sonic-esque percussion with a cybeR'n'B vibe.

Cat. Number: RAMP035

Choice slow-house and boogie hallucinations from Maxmillion Dunbar. We were suitably impressed with his 'Bare Feet' EP for Ramp last year and this one is looking set to do the same. 'Girls Dream' spins out on the A-side at a nonchalant 100bpm drowsily editing a soft-focus disco cut with a similar intent to the Thriller series or like a more smudged Firecracker production. 'Bells Dream' on the flipside is like a hazily recollected proto-house track where the machine rhythms have been eroded to a skeletal sketch and the melodic surfaces seem about to evaporate into the recesses of mem… Read more

Elephino, Illum Sphere, Tokimonsta and Blue Daisy line up for a masterful remix session of Kidkanevil's 'Basho Basho' EP. You should be warned, there's some seriously potent material on this 12", staring with Elephino's mix of 'The Floating World' which starts apace with a Joy Orbison-alike take on garage, arranging shivering hi-hats into impressive shuffles while his basslines manages to go way deeper than anything we've heard for time. Also in fine form, Illum Sphere gives up one of his deadliest club tracks to date on a remix of 'When Doves Bounce' brimming with cru… Read more

If I may appropriate the diction of Terror Twilight-era Stephen Malkmus, this lot need to simmer, simmer, simmer down. Imagine Andrew WK pepping up a Polyphonic Spree collaboration with Akron/Family and you're in the right sort of hyperactive, joycore territory. Frankly, it's exhausting. From hard rocking guitar workouts on the title track to surreal samba hallucinations ('Party Politics') via electropop lunacy ('Young Marks') these guys don't know when to give it a rest. Furthermore, 'Boys In The Attic' is like a smashed-up garage version of '70s stadium rock (presumably that's an Aerosmith T… Read more

Teddy aka Silencer and his mate C. Tank lock and load 13 tracks of brash grime instrumentals. Silencer tracks regularly crop up on the shows of Elijah & Butterz and Logan Sama besides their own Rinse sessions, with the rudeness riffage and aggy bass of 'Ren & Stimpy' making a big impact recently and their collaborative 'Ghanaian Fire' churning up midi-orchestrations and super-itchy beats to mow down all in their path. Chunky bizzle.

Deep rollers from London's Dodger Man. 'Mango Tree' mixes shimmering dub techno synths with breezy tropical bleeps for a bright and spacious 'floor tool, whereas '2_12' is more on the F-style dubtech vibe with cavernous, shivering chords and lissom 2-step syncopations. One to check for fans of Joy Orbison!

Both Sub Pop and Mudhoney themselves are celebrating twenty years in the business, and what better way to commemorate the occasion than to re-release the band's debut EP in a deluxe package that includes early singles, demos, live sets and radio sessions, all recorded back in 1988. Apparently the original issue was a fairly spectacular commercial failure, but of course history has proven the worth of Superfuzz Bigmuff, which went on to be one of the most influential twenty minutes in the entirety of American alternative rock, paving the way for Nirvana and the Seattle s… Read more
