Looking forward to seeing Keith Fullerton Whitman in London this week.
Sequenced songlike, in shortform, like last year’s Infinite Body LP, tones rise and fall like breathing, a mild sense of euphoria underpinning it all, buried deep among the barely-there choral sounds.
Golden Retriever are Matt Carlson & Jonathan Sielaff, a modular synth and bass clarinet duo from Portland, Oregon.
Coming from a similar place musically to Super Receptor faves Grasshopper, the pair have been putting out short run cassettes & CDRs on labels like NNA Tapes and Gift Tapes since 2010 and will release their first vinyl LP on Root Strata later this year.>
When you have a label with such a hectic release schedule as Digitalis it’s easy to get complacent about their high standard of output. So let this Charlatan LP bring it all back into sharp focus for you.
Triangles sits alongside Motion Sickness Of Time Travel’s Seeping Through The Veil Of The Unconscious as the high water mark from the veritable flood that is their back catalogue. An album of the year, no doubt. Don’t sleep on this one.>

June’s mixtape attempts to group together a recent strain of creeped out low-end music that exists in a place somewhere between industrial influenced techno, the weirder extremes of dubstep and the worlds of noise & drone.
The title is taken from this review.
- Emptyset - Plane
- Andy Stott - Execution
- Old Apparatus - Untitled (Side A)
- Raime - Retread
- Scorn - Beaked Point
- Senking - Unlighted
- Demdike Stare - The Stars Are Moving
- Downliners Sekt - From Under Spinning Lights
- Chasing Voices - Acidbathory
Andy Stott’s Passed Me By is immersive, disorientating, heavy. An album of “knackered house”, rooted in dub techno, that takes in the deepest of sub bass, short snatches of clipped vocals, pitched down soul samples and a liberal dose of noise and static.
