Ormonde are Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William/Lotte Kestner) and Robert Gomez, and ‘Cartographer/Explorer’ is the Seattle band’s second album, following on from 2012’s ‘Machine’ which garnered keen praise on both sides of the Atlantic for its delicate acoustic songwriting. Individually, the two members of Ormonde have impressive CVs: Williams toured with Damien Rice, Feist, Broken Social Scene and Explosions in the Sky during her time in Trespassers William (Nettwerk Records) and also co-wrote and sang ‘Hold Tight London’ on Chemical Brothers’ ‘Push the Button’ album.

**Coloured double vinyl with the full album on CD and poster booklet** The Knife cut thru their back catalogue to present 'Shaken-Up' versions reworked for their recent US tour. They're not messing around when they call these versions 'Shaken-Up' - tempos are raised, vocals pitched and everything given an irresistible energy that must have translated well in the live arena (shame on me, i've still not caught their live show). And so you'll find ramped up mixes of their siblings' signature anthem 'We Share Our Mother's Health', plus a frisky mix of 'Got 2 Let U' from 'Deep Cuts', a Soca… Read more

"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 G… Read more

ANDREW THOMAS WILSON - The Chain Reaction Soundtrack, Dual Planet
Composed by unsung composer Andrew Thomas Wilson, the soundtrack is a forgotten piece of 1980s electronic film scoring. A clash between driving electropop and the ominous dirge of John Carpenter's The Thing and The Fog soundtracks. Layers of icy modular Synth and proto techno rhythms serve as the backdrop to the explosive biological-apocalyptic meltdown. Described as 'Mad Max meets the China Syndrome', the 1980 Australian film The Chain Reaction is an often overlooked entry in the highly venerated Ozploitation Genre. A nuclear disaster themed thrill ride into early… Read more

M.I.A. junglist Jamie Boyle aka Breakage returns with an epic pop glint in his eye. 'Treading Water' places a shiny pop vocal from Detour City amidst brooding Reese bass and prickling synths in a big ol' breakdown that never quite goes anywhere. The V.I.P. gives a little more to grab onto with the addition of a classic 'ardcore break placing it up close to the likes of Route '94 or Last Japan's hardcore pops.

Since 2012 they've twisted their sound in new directions between the refractive, sweetly discordant club enigma, 'Cavescape' to ghostly refinement of their R&B-pop tastes in 'Lung' feat. Lafawndah, and the '90s-into-2014 flex of 'U Touch Me' with Hoody, whilst '7:30 A.M.' deals in an airborne, alien techno funk recalling Lotic and Arca productions.
