Tape Tuesday: KTL Live Series

Demian Johnston and KTL (Stephen O’Malley & Peter Rehberg) are unleashing a 12(!) volume cassette edition of live KTL recordings made over the last couple of years from diverse locations all over the world such as Poland and Canada. While we don’t have any samples of audio available, we can vouch for the quality of […]

Tape Tuesday: Blood Room – Habitus

Indole Records from the UK has been doing some really rad stuff with their releases. One of note is ‘Habitus’ by Blood Room (aka Tim Matts) Equal parts plunderphonics and minimal techno, this recording is an examination of everything down in the cracks and in between the walls. The tape features bonkers illustration by Jennifer […]

Birdman – OST 2xLP

Did you see Birdman last year? You better have. It was fantastic, and equally so is the music in it…which is officially getting the wax treatment from Milan Records. Much of the film is peppered with the solo jazz drumming of Antonio Sanchez, which is adept at carrying the scenes along in a way you […]

King Woman – Doubt LP

The Flenser has been on a roll lately. One of their newest releases is from King Woman, which is the newest project of Kristina Esfandiari of Whirr fame. Fans of said band will instantly relate, but for those unfamiliar with Whirr, prepare for some gauzy slow motion vocal lamentation accented by walls of guitars and […]

Wrong – Stop Giving 12″

Miami has been home to some heavy hitters in the last few years, bands such as Torche and Capsule. Now we are graced with a splinter group of the latter known as Wrong and they are bringing some heavy riffage in the vein of early Helmet and Unsane to you via Robotic Empire. This 4 […]

James Place – Living On Superstition LP

James Place (Phil Tortoroli) is dropping a new long player on Umor Rex, following his tape last year for Opal Tapes. ‘Living On Superstition’ weaves together a hazy dream like narrative of weird times in the city. Synths and samples stumble all over each other like the fanciest of footwork that adds up to a […]

Ranger – Where Evil Dwells LP

Helsinki’s finest throwback thrash squad is set to shock skulls with their debut album release this March. Anticipation for this one sets the pre-hype at nearly unsustainable levels, but it’s very much warranted – the preceding five track Knights Of Darkness EP was just not enough of a good thing. Distribution for this should be […]

Rhinocervs – RH-11 LP

The infamous Rhinocervs tape label does not seem to be functioning anymore, but Final Agony seems intent on giving many of their fantastic and poorly-dubbed/distributed releases a proper vinyl pressing (along with a usually much needed remastering). The most recent to hit their shelves is RH-11 and can be purchased on limited colored vinyl over […]

Warhorse – As Heaven Turns To Ash 2xLP

Southern Lord is reissuing one hell of a classic doom record: Warhorse’s ‘As Heaven Turns To Ash’. This thing, in our humble opinion, is one of those quintessential examples of a crushing record from the era. This new exclusive double vinyl version compiles the original 9 tracks from the ’01 release as well as the […]

Oren Ambarchi & Jim O’Rourke – Behold LP

YES. This is what’s good right now. Back in 2011 Ambarchi and O’Rourke released the collaborative LP ‘Indeed’ on Editions Mego and it was, indeed, amazing. We just wished it was a bit longer…or for another release altogether. Well, our prayers have been answered. The duo is back with two sides of minimalist electronics, guitars, […]
