IMBOGODOM (ALEXANDER TUCKER & DANIEL BEBAN) - And They Turned Not When They Went, Thrill Jockey
Imbogodom is the unholy alliance of Alexander Tucker and Daniel Beban exploring parallel worlds of musique concréte and psyche-folk. Across its twelve tracks they render a fantastical, otherworldly space where each track is seemingly related to the next by an inter-dimensional wormhole, skipping realities between swirling electro-acoustics to pentangle-like folk, on through drone instrumentals, medieval incantations and other, unclassified ephemera. Lush and transporting. Recorded partly in Dungeness onto tapes, reel-to-reel machines, telephone and other objects. Mastered in New York. Classic-looking artwork by Mr. Tucker, himself.

**Double LP reissue with bonus side recorded at their 1981 John Peel Session. Includes download code redeemable from the label** 'Seven Songs' is a stone cold Post Punk classic from 1982. Miscegenating Afrobeat voodoo and American psychedelic funk with harsh Industrial electronics, traces of Exotica and wrenched tape FX, it stands out a mile from its era and can be rightly called a seminal record. Its creators 23 Skidoo aka Fritz Catlin, Thom Heslop, Sam Mills, Alex Turnbull and Johnny Turnbull were mostly under twenty years of age at the time of recording, and their youth… Read more

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: ROCKACT61

A bit of grandstanding romanticism from Scotland's finest, with sweeping chamber instrumentation favoured over guitar shredding. 'Get To France' is an unreconstructed bit of neo-classical music, though it has something of the sinister, occult cabaret vibe of Coil and Kreng about it too. 'Hound Of Winter' pursues a nice vision of country-soul, all downhome acoustic guitars, twinkling pianos and harmonica; when the strings enter from the wings, it's easy to see this as the Mogs' response to the time-honoured American orch-pop tradition, from Jimmy Webb on through to Jim O'Rourke.

We'll admit to being more than a little stunned that Isan were appearing on Deep Medi but it really makes sense when you compare the similarities between their fragile electronics and Clouds' piquant take on dubstep. Their remix is respectfully bass-loaded, aiming for the early-hours dancefloor with richly harmonised subs balancing their flyaway hi-hats and crystalline melody up floating across the surface.

Witness the evolution of Bullion's idiosyncratic oeuvre on his latest, and greatest release for R&S. From his earliest 'Pet Sounds: In The Key Of Dee' through to that sideways remix of Model 500, there was never any doubt that the guy was a hugely distinguished talent, but we really didn't see this one coming. These are his most pop-sharp, imaginative offerings to date, sounding like John Maus in a psychedelic tizzy with the smudged-out dreampop of 'Say Arr Ee', or concocting some kinda Balearic minimal-wave-funk hallucination with 'What Do You Know'. Hit the samples and prepare to be impressed. Recommended!

Though it has a clear and central debt to 1970s German electronic music, Jandavs pulls on various other influences - minimal synth, new age ambient, Detroit techno - to craft his hypnotic, pulsating synth-scapes.
