  • Gabriel Saloman – Movement Building Vol. 3

    Adas Butler, September 22nd 2017

    Movement Building Vol. 3 by Gabriel Saloman Ex-Yellow Swan and all-round interesting man Gabriel Saloman returns with the third (and final) instalment of his ambient ‘Movement Building’ collections. Like the others, it doesn’t shy away from the brooding, the tense and the disquieting. But it also lifts on those crashing chords, a sense of the industrial […]

    • Underground Find – Basement Revolver

      Maxine Wesley, September 6th 2017

      Although Basement Revolver doesn’t have a wide range of songs released, they’re definitely a band that has huge potential and deserves more recognition than they’re currently getting. The dreamy female vocals combined with the slow tempo instrumental make for incredibly easy listening, especially if you’re a fan of artists like Angel Olsen or other female-led […]

      • Cool Find – The Blurry Underground Pop of Ummagma

        Dave Wesley, August 23rd 2017

        Ummagma is a blurry pop band in the absolute best sense of that description.  I recently discovered a bunch of their unique tracks and videos on YouTube.   My penchant for intentionally lo-fi production finds me heavily rotating the track Live And Let Die. Their style varies a bit across releases, but it firmly remains […]

        • Repost – Steve Kilbey Talks New Kilbey Kennedy Album Glow and Fade, The Church and More

          Wesley Mayhem, June 6th 2017

          This is a cool interview with Steve Kilbey on the Smells Like Infinite Sadness blog.   If you know me, you know that I’m a major fan of The Church.  I hadn’t heard of Steve’s side project Kilbey Kennedy.   When I searched Spotify, I discovered a ton of Kilbey Kennedy music, which I’ve quickly playlisted […]

          • Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – French Press

            Wesley Mayhem, June 1st 2017

            When Greg Dulli recommends a release, guys like me listen.  The Rolling Blackouts (now on SubPop) are a new discovery, thanks to a Dulli tweet.  This single reminds me of music I love from the fertile 80s.  I’m paying it forward. Wesley Mayhem – Etter, MN

            • But Darling It’s Hideous EP – CY006

              Adas Butler, May 20th 2017

              Contort Yourself, purveyors of obscure, difficult industrial noise that damn well makes your body move, are on their sixth compilation, and this one is flat-out great. As usual, it’s a mix of old and new, with the standout discovery being Penelope’s Fiance, a Greek producer who shifts uncannily between the unsettling and the sublime. There’s two […]

              • Jesse Osborne-Lanthier – From A Flawed Apex Which Led To The Head

                Wesley Mayhem, May 18th 2017

                This is a rare and fantastic blend of experimental music and techno structures with a striking holism.  Bandcamp showed me that Philip Sherburne purchased these bits and bytes, so I checked it out.  I shot.  I scored. Long live Jesse Osborne-Lanthier. Long live Where To Now? Records, UK. Long live Philip Sherburne. Long live Bandcamp. […]

                  Dom Fox, April 29th 2017

                  Copyright infringement detectorists be damned…  Nothing like some warm tubey lo-fi chill instrumental hip-hop (some calls it trip-hop) to start your European Saturday morning.  No matter if you wake and bake or stim your nodes with the dark bean, this might just get your day off to a good start…  or it might just be […]

                  • Web Destination: That Special Record

                    Gabi Von Dub, April 18th 2017

                    Finding myself suddenly flooded by awesome new and old music – ok great excuse, i´m always like that – i´m a bit puzzled of what to write about at the moment, since i need the writing progress bar to actually progress and deliver you another tip on one of the zillion aural extravaganza available around. It´s […]

                    • Corroded Trip-Hop – “GEA” WeMe030 by J.K.

                      Dave Wesley,

                      In the 2000’s, trip-hop was my gateway sonic drug to lo-fi deep dark dub techno and related genres… which have ended up as genre quicksand… engulfing my aural foci ever since. J.K.’s “GEA”…  Wo…  I haven’t heard anything as corroded, dark, jarring and cool since some of the earlier DJ Krush releases (before he went […]
