Sacred Bones Records will release the lost album from Alan Vega, Mutator, on 23 April. Vega’s name is synonymous with unfettered creativity, from the late 1950s, through his years playing in Suicide, and all the way up until his death in 2016, Vega was constantly creating. This process naturally led to a wealth of material that didn’t see the light of day immediately when it …

You can hear Indigo’s very essence shot right through echo. It’s never less, at any point, than extremely lovely; at many points its genuinely bloody stunning. You know when someone has that alchemical it, and boy: Indigo incontrovertibly does.
It’s not an album to have on in the background, because it’s far too arresting and enveloping, commanding. She’s royalty in waiting on the leftfield folk scene. Astonishing; buy

MAKING history as the “first album created by a person while they were still inside the womb”, the creation of Luca Yupanqui’s music was aided by her parents – her mother the bassist of psych-rock band Psychic Ills, and her father a Lee Scratch Perry collaborator – using biosonic MIDI technology to translate the vibrations …

IF MARISSA NADLER, Aldous Harding, Joanna Newsom, Vashti Bunyan light up your world with otherworldly folk fire – and if they don’t, then maybe we can’t be friends after all – then you really need to take a seat right this minute, and be astonished by Australian folk artist Indigo Sparke, who’s recently inked on …

Using an archive of field recordings from a …

Dark folk singer’s collaboration with Louisiana sludge metallers bears yet more fruit.

LEGENDARY film music writer John Carpenter still has so much to say; so many eerie atmospheres to evoke. The composer of such industry-standard soundtracks as the Halloween series, The Fog and Christine is back early in the new year with a new album for Sacred Bones; and he’s released a single to both prickle the …

SIXTIES’ and Seventies’ electronica is a weird and eccentric world, seemingly populated by mad genii and creative mavericks with clipboards and lab coats, observing banks of machinery at sonic play. Actually that conception isn’t too far from the truth: Raymond Scott and his Manhattan Research, Inc. while using the new musical technology to place interlude …

YOU’VE never really heard Mort Garson, you say; heard the name, never quite caught up with any of his stuff; anyway, it’s rock hard to get hold of, isn’t it? Yeah, of course I’m into Stereolab, Broadcast, Plone; Belbury Poly, Add N To (X), you say. If it’s weird and Moogy and kinda space age …

MORT GARSON is a name that’s intoned with due gravity by those who know. Hailing from Canada with an interest of the sounds of early circuitry-based music and a penchant for conceptual albums – concerning witchcraft, the zodiac, even music to help plants grow: to the sort of people you find in the kitchen bathtub …
