God Bless The Death Drive
Triple Negative
Penultimate Press
All aboard! The dark, dislocated return of you-know-who rattles with instinctive, subliminal voodoo ENCHANTMENT. Yes, if trance was the gradual appearing and reappearing of rhythms between the eloquent swells of fragile, drone-folk cascades and spiralling, distorted madness, like the emergence…

YPY
Acido
Arriving, coincidentally, within days of the O'ERBRIMMING Birdcage 2LP on EM which compiles the best output of his cassette label Bird Friend, Koshiro ‘YPY’ Hino lands on the mighty Acido with four masterclasses in spry, spring-loaded but reassuringly smoked-out house…

Civilistjävel!
Not on label
Re-press in plain paper sleeve.  We could make a passionate argument for any one of the Civilistjävel! LPs to date being "the best", and mean it, so let's just say that this third volume of late '90s / early 2000s archival…
Something Of What We've Lost
Renée van Trier
CAF?
BAD WOMAN! It was the sleeve photo that drew us to this record in the first place…Mlle. van Trier coming over like a bratty bong-boshin cross between Carla Bley and, er, Alex Mack… The music within kinda lives up to its…

Alexi Baris
Total Stasis
Micro solutions to mega problems! Dewy minimal electronics and shuffling, sleep-deprived laptop tone-poems with intricate detailing and more than a whiff of Studio Pankow, To Rococo Rot, Mapstation...music for European airports, back when they were still open. At first its slippery almost-grooves feel too…
Vivienne
Laila Sakini
Total Stasis
Languid, contemplative, achingly melancholic studies for piano, FX and vaporous vocal textures, toggling between weak-at-the-knees tremulousness and a kind of straight-backed stiffness and severity that makes the whole thing feel ALIVE to us, and a world away from the ond-dimensional, platitudinous new-new-age…

brokntoys
Weith! Not Heith. But still dead good...moody electro bruise-cruisers in redoubtable brokntoys style: 'Menit' on a properly dank, end-of-days, drinkin-cider-from-the-skull-of-thine-enemy tip, 'Obsesie' a little more louche and funked-up.  Transparent 7" lathe-cut, edition of 50 copies only - one per customer…

A Paper Bag Breathing In And Out
Ashtray Navigations
Memoirs Of An Aesthete
We are still not worthy! Fresh, inspirational, septum-searing dose of Ashtrays wrongness, doubling down on the lysergic tekno-exotica / freaked keyboards / a-martian-i-should-turn-to-be guitar sozzle of last year's A Propos de Naufage.... beautiful and baffling and exhilarating... the Yorkshire Psychedelic Underground…
