"Ever the trailblazer, Bonnie hops into something funny here: a 3 song single with its head chopped off! Rather than try something silly like put the songs on a larger format, the B-sides are accorded the space they need to rock and groove while the A-side exists in our ...

"Alps's, bold as love. Like a pamphleteer hawking their latest tract down the back lanes of your neighborhood, Sic Alps are the paper boy, song-blogging but in the real world instead, a 7" for ever ditty on every tick of the calendar." (label info)

"Recorded in 1974, 'Sky Yen' dated back to Pete Shelley's (BUZZCOCKS) college days, where he chaired an Electronic Music Society, playing records over the intercom during lunch hour. The material wasn't exactly easy listening/ambient style. No, it was raw waves of ...

"The follow up to his debut 'Guitarra Portuguesa' (originally released in 1971) is another masterpiece that makes clear how this guitar viruoso got the nickname "the man with a thousand fingers". 'Movimento Perpétuo' shows a more mature Carlos Paredes. His compositions ...

"The first article of Dwarr, beyond the beyond of rock and blues and metal. Woozily stumbling into poses of triumph, punctuated with squeals of guitar and the rolling of distant, trash-can drums. Spirits hang over the proceedings, inflecting every scream of terror, ...

"Planned as the fourth LP in his 70s trilogy, it was never released - a true crime, because it is an exotic work of homespun brilliance. Recorded in 1977 on a four-channel 'tube type' tape recorder that Michael built himself by combining parts of other machines, it is ...
