  • Underground Techno – Pavel Milyakov – Yalta

    Dave Wesley, September 6th 2017

    Bandcamp has emerged as one of the most effective tools for new music discovery.  I follow collections and purchasing habits of some choice taste makers and I’m never disappointed when surfing for new music within their Bandcamp collections.   Pavel Milyakov’s Yalta release, on what seems to be an nameless Russian vinyl and digital label, is […]

  • Underground Find – Basement Revolver

    Maxine Wesley,

    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.

  • 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 […]

    Dave Wesley, August 9th 2017

    One Summer afternoon, somewhere in range of 1979 – 1980, in Hastings, Minnesota, my high school cover band was practicing in the basement of the keyboard player’s house, which was a spacious abode on the 16th hole of the Hastings Country Club.   Odds are,  we were in the midst of butchering a Cars song, […]

  • 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 […]
