Beach House – 7

14-Aug-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Electro rock. Spacey and ethereal at times, trip hop like. Thoughts Reminds me of the electro rock blonde redhead was popular for like 10 years ago but with better songwriting. Revisiting this a month or two later, really haven’t found a lot to come back to. More Info […]

Blanketship – Klangwunder / The Sound Of Fun Surrounds You

10-Aug-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Vintage jazz rock meets found sound DJ Thoughts Pretty good, forward thinking collage of lots of different sounds.

Bambooman,Kirk Barley – Bambooman ‎– Whispers

02-Aug-18

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine What’s it sound like? An assortment of left field electro Thoughts I found the interludes Frost and melt interesting in their organic percussive approach. Static is a good one, Koze like. Guests on side one felt generic and uninspired, play it safe electro pop. The second half is much better opening […]

Material – Secret Life

26-Jul-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? 80s punky jam art rock Thoughts Interesting and full of energy, slightly abrasive at times which gives it a nice edge. Sounds like a number of things from the era but manages to carve a distinct sound. Little in the way of structure, seems a whole bunch of […]

DJ Koze – Knock Knock

24-Jul-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? DJ koze’s undeniable house – quizzical hip hop beats meet German techno. Thoughts As much as I want to call every Koze release essential (seriously kozela thank you for the music) I think he’s at his best as a remixer. This album has some great peaks ( baby, […]

Harmonia – Musik Von Harmonia

23-Jul-18

★★★★★ = Classic, essential listening What’s it sound like? Krautrock with synths: styles ranges from ambient to bouncy. Thoughts Great album, these tracks have a nice flow due to the repetitive expansiveness the jammy krautrock allows. A range of styles are on display which makes this an engaging listen: from the fun bouncy dino, semi […]
