Golden Diskó Ship ~ Imaginary Boys

On most albums, there’s a single moment in which one leans into the album or leans away.  On Imaginary Boys, the moment arrives early, at 2:02 of the opening track.  The Middle Eastern groove of “Flaming Flamingo” has already been established

Lullatone ~ Thinking About Thursdays

How would Japan’s Shawn and Yoshimi (Lullatone) follow up their happy set of seasonal EPs?  By releasing a song every Thursday for a year, leaving a contrail of joyful, exuberant, child-friendly music in their wake, like 52 toys dropped on

Umor Rex ~ March Batch

Moody soundscapes, crisp electronics, suspense film synth and layered voice: the four artists in Umor Rex’s March Batch might not attend the same parties, but they are united here by date and design.  This may be the label’s best batch

Werner Urban ~ Dworzac Towarowy

Dworzac Towarowy is a catchy record with an unusual construction: a set of field recordings rearranged into dance shapes.  For comparison’s sake, think Coldcut’s “Natural Rhythm”, but with dominant percussion.  The head starts to bob, the feet to tap as soon

2 Hungry Bros. ~ Recipe for Disaster

Only $5 for an instrumental hip-hop tape, pocket-sized and ready to trade with friends?  Sounds like 1980 all over again!  This is the sort of tape that brings a smile to the face and makes the cassette resurgence make sense.

Sunset Graves ~ Dead Cities Hymnal

Save Fabric!  This rallying cry was the starting point for the new album from Andy Fosberry (Sunset Graves), whose efforts helped to keep an exciting venue alive a few months back.  As this standout track begins, one hears the sounds

Rutger Zuydervelt ~ Astroneer OST

A sense of naïve wonder. A sentimental poetic that reflects upon discovery, whether of new spaces or perhaps even new sensations, as the vantage-point of an adventurous imagination. The music of the ‘last frontier’ that is found among the stars
