NOW WHOLLY ensconced in what they call a ‘hive mind’ situation in North London, and with their new EP, Walking Machine, poised to be set free on a guitar-lovin’ public on August 6th, FEET today release the summery Noo Yoik fuzz melodies of “Library”, which we’ve got for you below. And a one-two-three-four … “”Library …

AILSA TULLY, the rising Welsh singer-songwriter who’s no stranger to these pages, has announced her new EP, Holy Isle, will be out mid-August on Dalliance Recordings, and has dropped the lead single, the complex, impressionistic indie rock of “Greedy”. Take a listen below. Holy Isle is, in essence, a break-up musically diarised with a difference; …

MANCHESTER’S legendary proponents of the post-punk soulful funk A Certain Ratio, fresh from the release of their excellent ACR:EPA EP, four tracks from the final session that the band laid down with Denise Johnson (see the video for the hypnotic “Wonderland” here) are marching on in such a sonic hot streak as they announce the …

WITH their comprehensive (and wholly exciting for those of us who fell for their exploratory, dubby charms the first time round) reissue campaign for Warp under way and those later era albums and compilations due in expanded and remastered pressings mid-May, Seefeel have just dropped a digital-only EP of tracks from the archive, Reduct.

A CHAOTIC, riotously fun force of nature which – if you believe the myth – came about after lightning struck, Muck Spreader are back with a shadowy, gloriously dub-jazz didactic single, “Take Flight”, ahead of a July EP for Brace Yourself – and a tour in very fine company. The new eight-tracker, Abysmal, follows last …

A MULTIDISCIPLINARY artist by trade and by vocation, comfortable in any number of mediums, Heka is the sonic alias of Francesca Brierley, who’s just signed to the excellent Manchester-based independent Balloon Machine, home already to the breathtaking folk stylings of Laura Fell. Her debut EP for the zine-turned-label is succinctly titled (a) and will be …

CONTEMPORARY composer James Heather is set to release his first collection of original works in four years in the shape of Modulations: EP2, which will be out on Coldcut’s other label besides Ninja Tune, Ahead Of Our Time, in late May. The new EP of subtle, ringing melodies is preluded by the slowly unfolding, keyed …

LOUIEN we touched base with just a matter of days back, in an ensemble sense, when she lined up alongside Siv Jakobsen and The Northern Belle for the Nordicana loveliness of “No Rush”, bringing three-part harmonies to a chiming beauty of a tune reminding us to take care of each other. Now Miranda Solberg (for …
