Ships in 20 days‘Ices’ is a celebration of flight, levity and the conviction that you can leave Earth. You take wing in an aeroplane, you go to real places when you dream, you have out-of- body experiences, you get high, you lose yourself in someone else. In Lia’s own words: “This recording session became a two year music and spiritual retreat with my psychic twin brother, Eliot. A private journey during which we abandoned old habits and familiar sounds. We got really geeky and experimented in our studio. We obsessed over sympathetic magic, ‘Ancient Aliens’, and the NBA. We allowed everything we loved to find its way… Read more
Ships in 20 daysEsteemed dark ambient pioneer Thomas Köner casts a beautifully sombre solo piano shadow with the 68-minute piece, 'Tiento de las Nieves' for Denovali Records. Whilst he's previously used the piano as an indistinct element within his widescreen scapes, here it's the main focus, sustaining super sparse, plangent notes which radiate out across the soundsphere with longing decay until they fade, freezing and slowly thawing in a sequence of deep blue moments bridged by stratospheric, slowly expanding pads. Once rested to the piece's meter, it's easy to let go and imagine yourself as Fri… Read more
Ships in 20 days"Hailing from New Zealand, haunting dream-pop duo French For Rabbits have been quietly building a reputation around the world for their growing collection of songs clouded in eerie instrumentation and sea-misted lyricism, courtesy of the venerable Lefse Records imprint."
Ships in 20 daysThe results of Spatial's opti-sonic installation, 'Primitives' reinterpreted by the man himself, Broken20's TVO, Bass Clef, and Sculpture. The light-controlled software at the core of the installation generates unique tones which are subsequently re-shaped into hulking UK techno patterns crawling with strange electronic figures in Spatial's own version; the TVO|SPL mix is more freakish, shot thru with piercing oscillations and slow slamming beats; Bass Clef twists it into a quirky robo-boogie; while Sculpture render a dynamic diorama of radiophonic blips and scrambled rhythms.
Ships in 20 daysBay Area junglist Lee Bannon presents a sweeping follow-up to his much-loved 'Alternate/Endings' album for Ninja Tune. Signed to leftfield hip hop powerhouse Babygrande Records, 'Main / Flex' sounds like a long-lost collusion between GZA, Burial and DJ Scud, where Charlie Benante of Anthrax and Teklife's Deejay Earl just happened to pass thru the studio with some seriously loaded hash cakes. In fact, the latter half of that statement isn't fantasy; Benant and Earl do feature, but the rest is all Lee Bannon working out his dreadest '90s demons with hard-cut fusions of rugged hip hop, warehouse-bashing tech-step and rolling, swinging, darkside garage-techno mutations.
Ships in 20 days"Part Man, Part Machine, Cybotron was the synthesis of progressive rock and electronic music experimentation. Conceived by pioneers of the Australian electronic underground, Steve Maxwell Von Braund and keyboardist Geoff Green, together they produced a series of mind-altering cosmic albums throughout the 1970s which set the tone for the Minimal wave and electronic post punk scene of early 1980s Melbourne. Part Tangerine Dream, part Ash Ra Tempel, Cybotron channelled the spirit of Krautrock to create their own unique brand of throbbing Komische electronica rivalling the futuristic vision of their Ger… Read more
Ships in 20 days*Previously unreleased Ozploitation soundtrack from the composer of Mad Max, Patrick and The Day After Halloween* "The notorious 1982 Australian film, Turkey Shoot (Also known as Escape 2000 in the US and Blood Camp Thatcher in the UK) has long been considered the ultimate of Australian Video Nasties. Scored by renowned Australian film composer Brian May (Mad Max, Patrick, The Day After Halloween), the predominantly electronic soundtrack hints stylistically to brooding horror-synth of John Carpenter, the mutant patchbay of Gil Melle’s soundtrack The Andromeda Strain as well as some of … Read more
Ships in 20 daysPoliticised party house bangers from Essex's garage answer to Russell Brand, aka DJ Haus ov UTTU. 'Feel The Change Comin' On' burns up the titular vocal phrase over positivist flute parps and rugged garage skip laced with natty acid lines to make 'em dance like it's '94 and the plod are watching; 'When U Look At' goes a shade deeper with teasing filter treatments applied to a darker, contemporary jackin' sound designed for cuttin' shapes.
