Ships in 6 daysBlooming heavy atmospheric doom sludge improvisations from Aidan Baker (Nadja, Whisper Room, Infinite Light) and Josh Rothenberger (Bloody Panda), recorded live in Brookly 2008, and later augmented with guest musicians. The resultant 'Smokefall' revolves around three lengthy pieces sweeping between ultra-slow doom crushers to plangent ambient and darkly psychedelic folk and black metal atmospheres. An impressive album, one to really get lost in. For fans of Ocean, Æthenor, Nadja.
Ships in 6 daysOne of D&B's darkest, baddest new units - Pessimist, Vega and Cooper, aka Ruffhouse - roll out two punishing dreadnaughts for Ingredients. 'Strangers' is our percy; rolling reese bass and oxidised industrial percussions with strong links to vintage Dom & Roland or Optical at their most malign. Heavy artillery! 'The Domino Effect' is a minimal, brooding hardstepper under pressure of darkside atmospheres.
Ships in 6 daysahhhh, this is so good. Michigan noise celebs John Olson and Nate Young are joined by new blood James Baljo to coin their new era of mutoid wave music on 'No Answer: Lower Floors'. You freaks will also be pleased to hear that former members Aaron Dilloway and Mike Connelly return to the fold for this slab of cold, zombied meat, converging primal visions of regressed futures previously imagined in records by the likes of TG or The German Shepherds. There's a sense that the group's divergent individual interests - Nate Young with Regression, Stare Case, Moon Pool & Dead Band, John Olso… Read more
Ships in 6 days**Double gatefold LP - Includes digital download code redeemable from the label** Mount Kimbie look likely to expand their audience greatly with this, the follow-up to their 2011 debut Crooks & Lovers, and their first for Warp. Unlike its home-spun predecessor, 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' was recorded at a proper studio, and as such there's a thicker, creamier production than before, not to mention a much greater emphasis on live instrumentation, particularly drums and percussion. While ordinarily this wouldn't bode well, in reality it gives the album an earthiness and c… Read more
Ships in 6 daysWelcome return from prickly-sweet Norwegian singer-songwriter, Jenny Hval, proceeding her excellent 2011 album, 'Viscera', also issued thru Rune Grammofon. This time she's deigned to work with super-producer John Parish, who's best known for his legendary work with PJ Harvey and here provides an at times surreal, always detailed, and spellbinding blend of robust pop and free-flowing rock music. It's a perfect match for the provocative novelist and artist's pointed and intelligent lyrics dealing with everything from the tragic Breivik shootings to gender politics and the psychogeography of… Read more
Ships in 6 daysUTTU buss out Ohm's killer 1992 UK house prototype, 'Tribal Tone', primed with new remixes by Capracara and Marquis Hawkes, plus Ohm's new outfit, Northern Souls. Most notably, the infectious Mo' Better Grooves mix is credited as the first tune to use that distinctive Korg M1 sound - the very same used on Robin S anthem, 'Show Me Love - whilst their Ruffneck Mix boosts the energy levels for the raving crew. Ohm's fellow Scots house player, Marquis Hawkes gives up a sub-soaked and kinkier reduction, and Capracara lends his dedicated dancefloor experience to a bassline-warping and raved up and horny speed Garage take.
Ships in 6 days"Hedvig Mollestad Thomassen is a guitar heroine for our times. She first picked up her mother’s nylon-strung acoustic guitar at the age of ten and as an exploratory teenager she dug deep into her father’s jazz and rock record collection. Then she was given an electric guitar and amplifier as a confirmation present, and never looked back. But there’s nothing pious about her music. Her molten, overdriven guitar sound is forged in the same fiery furnace as Hendrix, Tony Iommi, Jimmy Page, then plunged into a steaming vat of free jazz in the Sonny Sharrock/Fred Frith mould. In tra… Read more
Ships in 6 daysIt makes sense that Mark Ernestus's investigations into the grain and grammar of rhythm have led him to Senegal - where Mbalax, an ecstatic fusion of Western music styles and traditional Senegalese drum music (sabar), has been flourishing since the 1970s. Hard-grooving, hypnotic, fiendishly swung - and with an instrumental palette comprised largely of talking-drums and sequencer-like marimba synths - it's easy to understand why it appeals to both the technical and intuitive sides of the Basic Channel/Rhythm & Sound don's brain, whose burgeoning interest in Africa has al… Read more
