Guybrush ~ Incandenza

Djrum ~ Portrait With Firewood

The portents for Portrait With Firewood are unusual to say the least, particularly for a producer more associated with a series of releases that mostly combined cinematic samples and atmosphere with a dubstep-inspired late-night wooziness. Instead, Felix Manuel, who records

Puce Mary ~ The Drought

Copenhagen’s Puce Mary makes her first showing on our site with her best album to date.  Torbjørn Rødland’s striking cover imagery is reminiscent of Kirk Weddle’s work on Nirvana’s Nevermind. The comparison is even more apt when one links Frederikke Hoffmeier and Kurt Cobain as
