SEE: Kanye West’s American Psycho parody/Yeezus promo

american-psycho-w1280

Now, be honest, when you first heard that Kanye West was soon to release the follow up to his much adored 2010 effort My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, it wasn’t the promise of more soul sample re-purposing that got you hyped, was it? No, like most others, you caught wind of something else, something properly exciting blowing in from the east. Indeed, […]

Ever since Washed Out’s Ernest Greene debuted in 2009 with the ‘High Times’ EP, he has been producing woozy, sun-kissed and hip-hop influenced synthpop that ambles at a pace that could be accurately described as that which you’d walk to a beach BBQ; suitably his second EP (which contained a track titled ‘Feel It All Around’) was named ‘Life of […]

  Legendary electro-kraut outfit Kraftwerk is, according to Ralf Hütter, working on a new album. In an interview with the Guardian, Hütter stated “Now we can concentrate on number nine” echoing similar claims made last year; their last release was 2003’s ‘Tour De France Soundtracks’, which received middling reviews. No luck on getting an estimated time of arrival though – […]

VIDEO: David Lynch – I’m Waiting Here (Feat. Lykke Li)

I'm Waiting Here David Lynch

Waiting for David Lynch is practically a full time profession. Between his extensive schedule of directing live web-casts of Duran Duran (really), creating premium coffee brands and running the David Lynch Foundation For Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace (really really) there’s nary a moment (or 6 months) to assemble the cast and crew to make a follow up to 2006’s brilliant […]

Assuming you don’t live in Yermo, California, there’s a pretty decent chance that you missed out on Boards of Canada’s very latest attempt at getting people hyped for their freshest (and long overdue) LP ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’. Granted, letting roughly 20 people judge your music is one way to avoid publicity (albeit, in the most publicity friendly way ever invented), but […]

STREAM: Gold Panda – Half Of Where You Live

half of where you live

It’s tough to believe it’s been nearly three years since Gold Panda released his debut LP ‘Lucky Shiner’ into a cloud of hype so dense it became hard to appreciate just how inferior it was to his series of masterful EP releases (later collected on the absolutely recommended Companion LP), but to call it a poor album would be a vast […]

REVIEW: The Fall – Re-Mit

TheFall-ReMit-cover

You know, aside from the drug abuse and alleged violence towards women, Mark E Smith seems like an alright bloke. Over the years he’s completed his fabled metamorphosis into the confused, middle-aged alcoholic character he’s played since the Fall’s earliest days. However, unlike most confused, middle-aged alcoholics he doesn’t spend his the majority of days crying over his failed marriage (sorry, Dad) […]

STREAM: These New Puritans – Field of Reeds

field of reeds these new puritans

Generally speaking (or at least, in my mind), there appears to be two sorts of people – those who didn’t hear These New Puritans’ 2010 probable-classic ‘Hidden’, and those who wanted to take it to one side and make the kind of gruesome love usually reserved for dimly lit back rooms in record stores. Such was the outright beauty of […]

STREAM: Camera Obscura – Desire Lines

Camera-Obscura-Desire-Lines

It’s pretty tough to argue with Glasgow’s status as one of the UK’s finest music cities, in comparison to the remainder of the United Kingdom it’s spawned the likes of Belle & Sebastian, Aztec Camera, Mogwai, Arab Strap, Primal Scream and Orange Juice. There’s just some sort of hideous, brilliant magic nestled comfortably between the mountainous piles of heroin and […]

FREE STUFF: David Byrne & St. Vincent – Brass Tactics EP

brass tactics

My love of brass instruments is well noted. From their appearance in my favourite song of all time, to forming the foundations of one of David Byrne’s more underrated solo efforts, those unfortunate enough to have sat down with me long enough for me to start espousing the virtues of the little blighters will be quite aware how deep my appreciation […]
