A perfectly paced, perfectly structured album that feels like a first masterpiece - mood, melodic, soundtrack, jazz music for the new millennium with the ghosts of Duke Ellington and Miles Davis. Wells collaborates with Stephen and Katrina of Pastels fame, showing his love for a great avant pop tune. Belle and Sebastian revere Bill Wells after numerous live performances together. Stevie Jackson is a permanent member of the Trio; and Bill also has an upcoming mini-album with Isobel Campbell. Check.

Cat. Number: RUG367D1

Unveiling their latest signing, Domino presents the first single from Los Angeles quartet Chief. 'Breaking Walls' is a lightly melancholic slice of summery, West Coast pop. At first, all this seems fairly unassuming - from the monosyllabic band name to the disarmingly gimmick-free arrangement, Chief are just a sweet sounding soft-rock band. Calling upon great vocal harmonies and crystalline guitar melodies, both the A-side itself and B-side 'Your Direction' prove to be classy, if pretty trad, showcases for Chief's talents.

It doesn’t take long for you to realize that Belong’s latest full-length ‘Common Era’ is a shocking new direction for the New Orleans duo. ‘October Language’ was an expertly realized slice of fuzzy ambience, but within seconds of album-opener ‘Come See’ we are treated to drums, guitars and vocals; all the trappings of ‘real music’. A simple exercise in pop, however, this is not and Belong take the framework of classic shoegaze (pre ’92) and put it to work deep inside clouds of white noise and cavernous reverb. Skeletal songs and wordless vocals appear from the dense depths of blurred sound like… Read more

Alfred Darlington’s charmingly bizarre ‘Tailor Made’ showed up a few weeks back as a teaser for his forthcoming ‘Bespoke’ LP, and the kitchen-sink electronic salsa has now been shaken up by a smartly picked duo of talented hands. First up to the plate is LA wonky lass TOKiMONSTA, who takes Alfred’s original and pushes into a blur of down-tempo West Coast funk. You might recognize the style as somewhat indebted to the Brainfeeder crew, but Jennifer Lee handles proceedings with an expert hand and the result is hard, chunky and heavy. The standou… Read more

Much anticipated debut 12" from touted Glaswegian producer, Koreless - a must check for fans of Becoming Real, Dam Mantle or Jamie xx. '4D' is as simple as it effective, pitching delirious, yearning female vocal with bouncing subs and clipped percussion for the swingers. 'MTI' flips the formula with a more defined and tightly tucked Juke flavour, droning subs flesh out the bottom, alternating melodic duties with percolating toms and seductive, chopped-up vocals. All the usual suspects are onto this guy, we recommend you get on it, too!

Madlib might just be the best reference, but this is far from an exercise in second-rate ‘Unseen’ pastiches, just flip over to the Delia Derbyshire-esque ‘Stones Passage’ and prepare to have your brain cells frazzled by Jae’s genius-level of control over his unexpected, pulsing rhythms and the kin… Read more

Following on from appearances on Hyperdub, Kevin Martin (The Bug) and Kiki Hitomi (Dokkebi Q) take a temporary leave of absence from King Midas Sound (of which they are both members) to deliver their first EP proper as Black Chow, this time for the excellent Jahtari label. Black Chow is an altogether less submerged proposition to King Midas, replacing that signature spiritual narcosis with a more overtly digital-dub-indebted aesthetic. Opening track "Wonderland" carries many of the Jahtari signatures, with the sonic detritus of 8bit machinery strewn all over the arrangement, and Hitomi's… Read more

Heavily engaged mission music from the mysterious sect of Niggas With Guitars, coming correct with a stunningly evocative debut vinyl for Digitalis. In the vein of Dylan Ettinger's 'New Age Outlaws' or Leyland Kirby's muddled memories, 'Ethnic Frenzy' is a vivid internal soundtrack for hypnagogic dreamers, warping the memes of Vangelis or Carpenter in much the same way Pat Maher's DJ YoYo Dieting did to DJ Screw or Indignant Senility to Wagner. Cruising in to the A-side we're slowly immersed in smoked-out and sludgy choral drones punctuated with fractured gasps of drum machine r… Read more

For a debut production he's displaying chops ahead of his years with a firm grasp of crisp, Afro-rhythmic beat programming and silky synths, while his flipside production 'Creepy Crawlies' takes a tougher, electroid stance but still with the same sense of finesse.

One to watch, Midland, drops his 2nd solo single, backed with an unconventional Radio Slave remix. 'Bring Joy' is purely indicative of the Midland sound, further loosening the strictures that separate House, Garage and Techno to create a very 2011-ready sound binding elegant Tech-House builds with crisp 2-step swing. 'Dead Eyes' looks more to classic, mid-'90s US garage, where linear, propulsive Tech-House patterns are offset with relaxed subbass for firm dancefloor guidance. Strangely enough for a Radio Slave mix, his version of 'Bring Joy' dispenses with the kicks to tease out 12 minutes of spaciously minimal techno grooving around that warm subbass groove.

It’s no surprise where the high points lie – Kassem Mosse’s nine-minute house burner alone makes the release worth buying with its temper… Read more
