  • Dif Juz: Time Clock Turn Back

    Joel Hanson, July 23rd 2017

    In a YouTube video entitled Finding Dif Juz, Bella Union co-founder and ex-Cocteau Twins bassist Simon Raymonde unearths two rare 12-inch singles by the early 80’s instrumental group Dif Juz and claims that the origins of post-rock are found in the grooves of these low-fi recordings. While that may be true, as evidenced by the […]

      • Cool Streaming Radio Stations

        Dave Wesley, July 3rd 2017

        Streaming radio has been a big part of my life since Marcos Romero turned me on to Deep Mix Moscow, at least a decade ago.  Since then, I’ve started my own underground deep dubby experimental music station (Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda)), but I rotate listening to several streaming sources throughout the week, depending on my mood and […]

          • Release – Steve Earle & The Dukes – So You Wannabe an Outlaw

            Wesley Mayhem, June 22nd 2017

            This album is the real deal.  Instant classic. Growing up in Etter, Minnesota, in the 70s, in the middle of nowhere…  in a house in the middle of a field (which was perfect for UFO landings)…  with a father that cranked outlaw country music on a kick ass quadraphonic hi-fi… even for a rocker like me, […]

            • Release – Different Circles 005 – Various Artists: Weightless Volume 2

              Dave Wesley, June 21st 2017

              This experimental grimy release is like gentle rain to my ears after the dull programmed sonic assaults of off-Sonar events (Barcelona) and Primavera Sound (Porto) in these last weeks.  I promise myself to be more careful about how I spend my sonic time from now on!  Tick tock. Hear my post-festival sonic salvation at Hardwax: […]

                  • The KVB – Fixation / White Walls

                    Adas Butler,

                    A little bit nasty, a little bit ecstatic, a little bit bedroom and a little bit demented dancefloor – here’s another interesting slab from The KVB. Psychedelic moments and reflective space all in a not-too-difficult package – worth trying especially if you’re fans of other projects of their label, Invada, or the label’s founder, Portishead’s […]
