Not new or anything and I may well have posted it before but Boy Harsher - Yr Body Is Nothing is HUGE among the wee Shads and big Shads alike.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Mark Lanegan remix 12',. I mean don't get me wrong, he's got a great voie but I just didn't expet this to work as well as it did, onsidering the shite remixers he's used int he past.

All the individual links are snippets or locked out in the UKso go forth to Shitify to hear it.

Virginia Wing / Xam Duo - Person To Person just preordered this and got the file for this at time of purchase. Mmm saxy! Rolling rotorvated kosmische rhythms coming on like Sherwood dubbing up Lifetones. Really great stuff, I really like both bands and this looks to be a great record.

Furniture - Why are we in love I dusted this down for the songs no one had heard thread and it's just a magnificent thing. The rest of the album is fairly gash but there's magic in these smoky noir grooves and that singular two stroke drum track.

Anna - Systems Breaking Down kinda the halfway house between Minimal wave and electro. Sit's nicely with Tarantula.

JASSS - Cotton For Lunch

Factory Floor - Ya (Klara Lewis Remix) shame this EP is file only, really like this track's humid forth world fug.

Faten Kanaan - Turning into Deer chic as Chanel.

Snapped Ankles - Jonny Guitar Calling Gosta Berlin oming on like a snotty 1979 sort of motorik.

Killing Sound - Eight Methods a masterpiece

Group Rhoda - At the Dark I really loved the two Group Rhoda elpees and every now and then I Google her to hek she's not got something out I missed and joy of joys she's got a new album Wilderless coming out next month on Dark Entries (smaple track Trespass) and I've just Pre ordered it. In the meantime I stuck on the other two records.

Group Rhoda - Dust

Btw...The Belbury Circle (Belbury Poly + The Advisory Circle = Belbury Circle) album with John Foxx is out in a out a month and it sounds terrific. The last one the 10' Empty Avenues was a belter.

Sally Shapiro - Skating in the Moonshine (Jon Brooks Remix)

Hologram Teen - God(d) Of Thunder Vs. Sukia

Bibio • ‘ Petals (Live Session)’ Mrs S thinks the original is an absolute masterpiece and showed me this version where he plays it live. It sadly lacks the heartspinning backwards coda on the original but it still a beautiful example of one man and an electric guitar. The other similar versions on yootoob are similarly wonderful;

Dye the Water Green (live)

Lovers Carvings (live) with beautiful Freddie Philips evocation

Virginia Wing - Rhonda cracking 3 track 12'

Blancmange - Running Thin a beautiful compact and bijo B side in such elegant shades of grey. A real cool down track after you wear out the floor to the A side.

VAZZ - You Haunt Me gorgeously short and oh so sweet.

MYRKUR - Crown mighty northern wonders. Winter is coming.

Xerox Girls - Erase Me I've never really bought the story about them being an old band from 1979 and it being digital only probably confirms this. I think it might just be a Black dog prank and does sound a little 'post' but it is still Sheffield all the way through like a stick of stainless steel rock and really fucking good with it.

Patience - White Of An Eye a wee bitty derivative of a song I love dearly but still worth having.

Boy Harsher - Pain Oh so does it for me. Not so sure about the new EP what i've heard is bit more evolved and less goth and not in a good way, I've got it on order but it's a step to far toward 'proper' music. This squelchy repetition and smoke mouthed khol chanteuse is much more my speed. I've been trying to buy another copy of this for one of my kids and fuck me if they aren't priced at crazy money...so it's a tough luck life lesson.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - An Intention just arrived, I'm not many songs in but I'm liking it a lot. When Iisten to Kaitlyn I always wonder what happened to Glasser.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani - Sunergy been playing this a lot becuase I was expecting the new one. Sublime,

Forest Swords - Congregate Recorded during the 'Compassion' album sessions. All proceeds go to ongoing and future aid work in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Mexico following the recent hurricane and earthquake devastation. Digital only, only two quid for two tracks and for a worthy cause..

Carla Dal Forno - We Shouldn't Have To Wait AMAZING

Burning Hearts - Folie a Deux obviously that bassline is like the bassline you are thinking it's like but it's still a good wee song.

Burning Hearts - Bodies as Battlefields

and live

Burning Hearts - Bodies as Battlefields - Live

Off World - Decamp super gelatinous motorik cocktail babble. The last album was a cracker and this one isn't disappointing.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement ‎– Beyond The Yellow-Spotted Bamboo mighty forth world monsoon of a track.

Black Swords - The Arc Light Murders; Black (Stuart Argabright of Black Rain, Dominatrix, O13 and of course the mighty Ike Yard), Swords (Orphan Swords). Immense prowling electric praying mantis step that gives your ears a gentle sandblasting before disolving into feedback heave.

Ike Yard - Oshima Cassette one of the few bands that managed to keep the bedsheets shit free on their comeback album.

Ike Yard - Kino AMAZING when I heard it in 1982, still amazing today. Crackles with malevolent power.

Black Rain - Protoplasm immense hovering dream pop beadblaster. Reminds me of Scala.

Sixth June - Nebo moving almost into Viva Xmal territory, it's got that tender chill.

Pessimist - Spirals taken me a while to get round to this. Think slomo Source Direct in an industrial freezer

Lapalux - Phase Violet feat Carmela Lobo of Tropic of Cancer. Dazzling soaring Technicolor

Tarcar - Eija on a total Carla Dal Forno binge.

Aye, it's a lovely thing all round.


Maximum Joy - Silent Street / Silent Dub I already have this as a single but I still bought I Can't Stand It Here On Quiet Nights: Singles 1981​-​82 that just came out.; Utterly superb in every way

Bunnydrums - Too Much Time dark dancefloor classic

Xarah Dion - Sillage Et Caprice not a million miles from early Marie Davidson.

Blancmange - Holiday Camp

Autumns – No More Luxury iron fist post punk tech

Agnes Obel - Stretch Your Eyes (Quiet Village Remix) I was listening to the new Tricky album and feeling...not very much and thinking that this is much more like it. Just a gorgeous reimagining of the original, all overlapping honeyed vocals, locked to a flickering clokwork pulse. A gorgeous must have 12'.


Colleen - Summer night (Bat song)
a beautiful song from a beautiful album.

Kuniyuk Featuring Anne Clark ‎– Between Shadow And Lights (Barnt Remix)

Anne Clark - Sleeper In Metropolis total classic

Jarboe & Father Murphy - The Ferryman off to see this collab tomorrow. Sounds pretty much as you would expect but not in a bad way. Sounds like SKIN.

The Radio Dept.: Swedish guns (Mythologen remix)
