Featured CD

KEVIN DRUMM

Wrong Intersection

Handmade Birds

Format_dot_cdCD // £12.99

DARK AMBIENT / DRONE / METAL

Cat. Number: HB073

Immersive, subtly dynamic soundscapes from electro-acoustic seer, Kevin Drumm, for the Handmade Birds label. Taken in light of Drumm's recent releases, the near-silence of 'Trouble' and the deathly ambience of 'Phantom Jerk', the 47 minute 'Wrong Intersection' is a deeply layered album, arriving in waves of spirit consuming noise washes and slow, desturctive detonations pierced with hi-frequency attacks and liable to switch tack from artillery onslaughts to their bombed-out aftermath in a muzzle flash. You almost get the sense that because this was released via a label he's not worked w… Read more

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Cat. Number: MM074

Mordant Music surpass themselves again with this unearthed, alien gem by library composer Donald Fraser and British folk band, Steeleye Span, recorded in 1975. The 15 minute 'Locomotion' is a real ace, locked into a tunnel of glue-huffing krautrock groove suffused with the fumes of psychedelic folk and ritual drums. MM's DLR remix squashes the thing to a demented acid church-hall bogle sparked up with gremlin voices and mutant electronics beside a eerily detached, barely-there Ghost Train Version left to roil in the murk. Or, as MM put it: "Radiophonic folk in continual accelerando for Geof… Read more

'That Horn Track' from Bleep's 10 year compilation takes a seeing to from Marcel Dettmann. On the original Untold flashes his new fangled modular system in a knotted, chaotic tribute to Egyptian Empire's 'ardcore classic, which Dettmann duly straightens out for the techno 'floors with stone-cut kicks and combustible, discordant surface disturbances.

Cat. Number: FON43

**Bundled digital download with three bonus tracks** RBMA grads Pick A Piper, Squalloscope and Love Cult team up on a pair of dreamy, jazzy ambient pop drifts. 'Never Get Lost' is angled to early dance floors with soulful indie vocals and laidback strings guided by a Floating Points-style bump. 'Ruin' is more spacious, etheric, finding a way in between Grouper-style vocals, blossoming ambient noise and tumbling, shuffling drums.

Raw, grainy deep house with Moon B and Coni reworks. The originals make for a fine debut by Moodcut, from the boogie-budged jack and eerie pads of 'late Night Ham' to the metallic funk tang of 'Stuck In Socks' and the sweet but gritty slam of 'Space Dub'. Moon B's rework of 'Late Night Ham' puts a deft, spaced out spin on it recalling NWAQ moments, and Coni gives 'Space Dub' a cleaner, streamlined rework.

Ruggedly effective New York house styles from DJ Qu on his Strength Music Recordings. The A-side's 'Untitled (Hi-Life)' lends a surprising dash of colour to his usually stripped down styles, lacing his Afro-latin shuffle with a bold, lustrous lead synth melody bound to spark up any 'floor, whereas the B-side turns back the darkside with the gritty, hip-notising shuffle of 'Soma' and the ibnfectious, dirivng whirr of rhythm mechanics in 'Raw 7'.

Listening to this latest album from Liz Harris’ Grouper project it’s easy to forget how much of a hard sell her music was back when 'Way Their Crept’ landed with us back in 2005. Her eerie, layered mix of bare vocals, guitar and tape delay didn't quite fit in with what anyone else was really doing on the scene back then - and it completely knocked us out even if no one was buying it. By the time her breakthrough ‘Dragging a Dead Deer…’ arrived on Type three years later she was more or less playing to a baying mob hungry for any little morsel she cared to throw their way, her (by now) more fleshed out sh… Read more
