the spirit of the beehive – pleasure suck LP

We’ve been riding high on the warm and fuzzy vibes of this LP for a couple of weeks now, and if the lukewarm Pitchfork review caused you to neglect it, we suggest you re-evaluate. pleasure suck ticks exactly all the right boxes for us, and is bound to be in heavy rotation as the Midwest […]

Sutekh Hexen – Salem LP

Salem is a live, impromptu field-recording by GreySun Records which provides a rare window into the improvisational and un-scripted creative realms of Sutekh Hexen. Finding the collective at their most forthright and primitive to date, Sutekh Hexen conjures something entirely original within their own construct. Upon completion came reflection and context, which yielded a challenging […]

Khanate – Self Titled/Things Viral+ 2xLP

For the uninitiated, Khanate (now defunct) was the experimental O’Malley/Plotkin/Wyskida/Dubin doom quartet that breathed a new light (or swallowed it, depending on how you see things) into the heavy scene back in 2001. For years now, both ‘Things Viral’ (their best, in our humble opinion) and ‘Khanate’ have been out of press, but Hydra Head […]

Plebeian Grandstand – False Highs, True Lows LP

Hey, is Spring getting you down? Too much sunlight? Birds chirping? Well we got a way to introduce a little blight into your happy world. The French collective Plebeian Grandstand have a new ripper, packed to the gills with asymmetrical dissonance and blackened tech that is sure to pummel (in the best possible way of […]

Dälek – Asphalt For Eden LP

Dälek is a bit of an anomaly in the hip hop world. Or, they were, until groups like Death Grips showed up. But you know, maybe thats what happens when you take a break for 6 years? Having shared the stage with everyone from RJD2 to ISIS, they’ve made a name for themselves in the […]

Naðra – Allir vegir til glötunar LP

Forum lurkers and scene chasers know: there’s something wicked going on in Iceland these days. The black metal being exported is of a quality that is simply unmatched within any other geographic setting right now. Fallen Empire was in early (as usual) with their vinyl release (and subsequent repressings) of the debut album from Misþyrming and […]

Skáphe – Skáphe² LP

Fallen Empire have added a few dark gems to their webstore over the weekend, including the vinyl pressing of the second album from Skáphe. This one-man black metal force has been augmented into a duo, thanks to the addition of vocals from D.G. of Misþyrming. Pressed on red or black vinyl and available right now from store.fallenempirerecords.com. Skáphe² […]

Matmos – Ultimate Care II LP

Remember back when Matmos made an album that consists primarily of samples of medical procedures, including plastic surgeries, liposuctions, hearing tests and bonesaws? Well, they are getting weirdy on us again with ‘Ultimate Care II’ – making great use of a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II model washing machine. It starts like you might expect, with […]

Ash Koosha – GUUD LP

Electronic music continues along its strange new trajectory, and alongside the obvious standouts from last year (Arca, Visionist, Rabit, etc.) you could be forgiven for passing over Ash Koosha’s brilliant input (I know we did). Olde English Spelling Bee has got that tasty vinyl pressing of last year’s GUUD album almost ready for you, and you […]
