THE BAND which Andrew Weatherall once described as “one of this country’s most underrated”, but which, since last year’s triumphant ACR Loco are the very definition of vivacious, restless, supremely creative – in full renaissance – are but days away now from the release of Loco Remezclada, their long-awaited remixes album. They’ve revealed one last …

French trio Versari produce compelling, dark and gothic sonic landscapes that are elegant and cool. We reviewed their single ‘Plus de Tristesse’ last year from the album ‘Sous le peaux’, calling it gloriously imperious and statuesque and we are very honoured to premiere their new EP Brûle, which consists of an edited version of the …

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 …

WE SWOONED for “Metal Man”, a dusky tale of yearning from former Clayhill quiet songwriting genius Ted Barnes featuring the vocal talents of Brighton folkie Kristin McClement a month back now when we premiered it; and now Ted’s lovely album 17 Postcards is out in the world, he’s offered that track up for a remix …

The band collaborated with UK producers James Lavelle’s UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey, James Welsh, Space Age Freak Out, and International Teachers of Pop for the EP. According to the band: During lockdown we thought it …

IT WAS only a month back that we covered the third single drop from rather obscenely talented upcoming Glasgow tunesmith Jeshua, “IDK”; and it was another fine entry in his fledgling catalogue. I mean, he’s been releasing tunes for such a short length of time. And they’re all effortlessly cracking. When “IDK” first came out, …

THE EXCELLENT Mancunian trio GoGo Penguin, whose catalogue is full of thrills of jazz with a firm focus on creativity and the dancefloor, working in the same territories as Cinematic Orchestra and Red Snapper, are all set to release a really exciting remixes album, GGP/RMX, for Blue Note in May; and boy, what an excellent …

THE LEFTFIELD, inventive Mancunian piano trio GoGo Penguin, who work out in the truly creative zones where dancefloor and intelligence and a jazzy feel bump into each other, decided they could be lifelong friends, have announced a remix album for Blue Note, to be entitled GGP/RMX; and boy have they lined up a mighty cast …

A VANCOUVER duo who met by chance at a jobbing jingle recording session some decade and a half ago, the curiously named The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer soon discovered a mutual wish to explore the folk and the blues; a business they’ve been about over five albums in the time since. They’ve taken the …
