Before we kick off with the first vinyl only release from Yuku, here is a little info on one of my new favorite labels that’s hitting it out the park with their Bass, IDM, Experimental, Down Tempo, Drum and Bass. YUKU is a record store, label, gallery, and exploratory space located in Žižkov, Prague. Brimming …

When I picked this up I realised I’d been away from Country for quite a while.  Too long as it turns out.  I needed a kick of something different.  I’ve got the same levels of lyrical heartbreak and heartache, less queer and feminist protest.  But I’ve traded noise, rage, hush, understatement, for harmonies and hooks …

Hologram is the first release from New York Post-Punk legends A Place To Bury Strangers on their own newly formed label, Dedstrange. It is the follow up to their highly regarded fifth album, Pinned, and is a sonic return to A Place To Bury Strangers’ rawest, most unhinged sound. 2021 welcomed a line-up change, with …

Jeff Mills and the Zanza 21 project is a new forthcoming creation that’s been self-constructing for quite some time.

It’s still reigning supreme to this day as Californian veterans of each respective scene continue to pummel in and out of the …

ENCOURAGED by the international success of her award-winning and Grammy-nominated album Punisher, the phenomenal Phoebe Bridgers has set out and reworked four tracks off the album into a vinyl release, Copycat Killer. It’s a move seldom seen by singer-songwriters, at least not this early in their career, and on first glance I’m reminded of the …

YOU MAY recognise the name Francesca Ter-Berg as the cello side of the leftfield folk classical improv duo Fran and Flora that turned heads a while ago, from Café Oto to Women’s Hour, with their electrifying rejuvenation of Eastern European traditional sounds. That vibrant partnership with violinist Flora Curzon released the impeccably imaginative Unfurl in …

THE ISOLATION of the pandemic has caused millions of people worldwide to realize how instrumental socialization and interaction has been in our lives.
