Cold
E. Granby Granby
Regional Bears
Had this on repeat! The sound of near-future reclusion, this wee insulator does battle with winter as warm currents are trapped between the breathable layers of Tim Shortell’s (of Anti-Natural / Swill Radio & Shadow Ring associations, y’see) hearty, DIGNIFIED…
Invitation To A Dream
Susan Alcorn, Joe McPhee & Ken Vandermark
Astral Spirits / Monofonus Press
*MID-PANDEMIC SALE! 50% OFF!*  WARNING: Dangerously introspective midweek reverie - an invitation to a DWAM indeed. One of life’s famously annoying tropes, when someone you don’t know starts to relay the details of their dreams to you, but what we…
The Clearing
A Produce
All Night Flight
Hark! A Produce’s disgustingly rare and sought-after, ultra-brooding minimal pop epic The Clearing available on vinyl for the first time since its original release in '88. A Produce was the late Barry Craig, who formed the Trance Port and Trance Port…
Move To Trash
David Yetton
Thokei Tapes
Dreamy, tremulous jangle-pop odds’n’ends from David Yetton, who played in fitfully brilliant Flying Nun combo The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The solo material collected here, all home-recorded in 1998-2010, is very much in the…
Personal Disorganiser
J.M. Kelcher
Thokei Tapes
Absolute unmitigated BELTER cassette compilation of solo material by John Kelcher, onetime member of Flying Nun nearlymen Sneaky Feelings (authors of the immortal ‘Throwing Stones’), bringing together songs from the now impossible-to-find tapes Personal Disorganiser (1991) and Actual Size (1994)…
Black Space, White Cloud
Miaux
Ultra Eczema
**BACK IN STOCK - FOR ZE LAST TIME** The new full length from Antwerp key-whiz, Miaux (meow?), is truly a BEAUTY. Her high stakes, progressive keyboard patterns feel like some cerebral, ceremonious court dances - synthetic, medieval banquet drama with space…

Bill Nace & Jon Collin
Early Music
Sublime, earth-raking/sky-scraping guitarscapes, on stamped CDr in board-backed manila brown sleeve with paste-on cover, edition of 70. Pretty much everything that finds it way out into the world via Jon Collin’s Early Music private press is worth a sniff, but…
Ayîk Adhîsta Adhîsta Ayîk
Suspenseful, sumptuously realised crime-and-dissonance scorings for the as-yet-unmade film of the as-yet-unwritten story of your life as an international murderer / fraudster / identity thief (mebbe?). Dwarfing their past achievements in one fell swoop, Razen capture the essence of what…
