• Nicola Ratti – The Collection

    Dave Wesley, October 18th 2017

    I agree with this description written by a Bandcamp fan of this release… and I couldn’t have written it better myself: “This is some of the most inventive dub to come out this year. There are affectations of microhouse sound manipulations and an overall level of cosmic weirdness that recalls some of the strange feelings […]

      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 […]

        • 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, […]

                    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 Birds by Poppy Ackroyd Poppy Ackroyd: ““The songs were recorded just outside of Brighton at Retreat Studios, close to the sea on the edge of the village, surrounded by hills, fields and wildlife. As if by magic, it began to rain just before I began to record the track ‘Rain’, and ended shortly after […]
