It's one of the strongest, if not definitive, examples of Radigue's tactile and meditative approach to composition, an engrossing, intuitive refinement of the techniques and practice she honed over prior years at RTF's Studio d'essa… Read more

Here we see the style diversify as it hits the 1970s and 1980s and introduces the sou… Read more

Back in stock. Originally released in 1953, this collection of very early Moondog pieces features the same tribal rhythmic impulse as his famed Prestige recordings, but there's an impressive line in chamber music running through these compositions: the B-side is dedicated to two suites for strings, which could easily pass for more traditional works were it not for the heavy bongo presence (something Haydn, Mozart et al were always sorely missing). Essentially though you can hear a sense of discipline, and a thorough working knowledge of conventional classical composition in Moondog's work, eve… Read more

Cat. Number: PURE142LP

*2013 Reissue* "Cool post-punk garagey Gang Of Four joyfulness" - Guardian Guide". Electrelane are four young women who refuse to be defined by one sound, and their second album, 'The Power Out', is a gauntlet thrown down to those who think they can predict their next move. Recorded and mixed in Chicago with Steve Albini. While the speedy ambience of their debut remains, the most startling difference is that they have introduced vocals, something largely absent from their previous recordings. Not only do words play a more important role on this album, but Verity uses her voice as an instrument to devastating effect, singing in English, German, French and Spanish. Check.

Given how successful that self-recorded LP was, it’s surprising to see that the Louisiana-born singer has looked to an external producer to document and frame her work this time around, namely Sigur Ros associate Alex Somers.

*180gm Vinyl* 'En Route' (1986) was the fifth album collaboration between Dieter Moebius and legendary studio meister Conny Plank. It was also to be their last, as Plank passed away shortly after in 1987. It appeared at the business end of the analogue-to-digital crossover and can be heard as an exploration of Plank's incredible studio's capabilities for shaping and bending rhythm and sound. Asmus Tietchens notes in the accompanying booklet that 'En Route' avoided the fashionable trends of industrial and new wave scenes, yet it's clearly compatible with both, with most emphasis on taut, rhythm… Read more

'Metzger' is reduced further, patterning rimshots and dusty hi-hats with elliptical bass and a wavey IDM-ish chord sequence beside the thick-necked roadside swagger of 'Dog Sweater'.
