His work proved informative in the invention of industrial, synth/post punk and his rousing lyrics were always a mirror of the times over the course of his six active decades. ‘Fist’ is taken from his forthcoming lost album Mutator, out 23 April via Sacred Bones Records.

 THE GALAXY ELECTRIC is American husband and wife duo Augustus and Jacqueline, who adore the music of the past of the future: that sweet, groovy as hell, jetpack-sporting and pristine white polo-necked spot where Broadcast, The Soundcarriers and others converge to fulfil the prophecy of the music we should be listening to today, in the …

A NEW YORK auteur with an eye for the beauty of a song steeped in the good stuff of muted bass-string riffs clicking away, a sturdy brass section and the slow chelsea-booted beauty of Roy Orbison, Elvis Perkins has shared a new taste of his upcoming album Creation Myths in the shape of “See Through.”. …

SOMETIMES the cliches can ring true. It’s a marriage made in heaven.  Take 4AD, Ivo Watts-Russell beautiful stable, which has given us such moments as … well, Victorialand. Need we say more?  Take also then, New York’s David Moore, who had quietly – and quietly again is le mot juste here – been making beguiling, …

‘Fracture’ is the second single to come from Interzone, the third full-length album by New York’s electro post-punk duo The Vacant Lots which genre-blends a synthesis of dance and psych, made for secluded listeners and all-night partygoers; meant for headphones and the club.  Created with aid from Alan Vega’s Arp synthesier and mixed by Maurizio …
