Pinkshinyultrablast – Everything Else MattersPinkshinyultrablast – Everything Else Matters
(Club AC30)

Russian Shoegaze, anyone ? Pinkshinyultrablast combine the brittle charm of Cocteau Twins and Mazzy Star with the sonic experimentation of Slowdive or My Bloody Valentine. Gorgeous melodies and the ethereal vocals of Lyubov are drenched in reverb to create an album which is full of interesting moments of pure pop brilliance. (Album Of The Week, Radio 6 Music)

 


 

Al Lover – Cave Ritual (Stolen Body Records)

Al Lover – Cave Ritual (Stolen Body Records) 

Al Lover is a San Franciscan producer heavily influenced by his native city’s garage scene and the horror soundtracks of Bruno Nicolai and Fabio Frizzi. Incredible opening track Genesis Porridge (which takes up the entire side A of the vinyl) builds from a drone into a sinister slice of hypnotic komische. Side B has 6 tracks variously reminiscent of some of your favourite Nuggets riffs complemented by busy synths and with hints of Eastern rhythms.

 


PatrickCowleyPatrick Cowley – School Daze (Dark Entries)

A welcome re-press for 2013’s re-issue of the year. Patrick Cowley was an electronic pioneer, much feted by New Order and Gary Numan. He died tragically young from AIDS but School Daze is a suite of songs he composed to soundtrack two gay porn movies (Muscle Up & School Daze) in the early 80s. From 4/4 dance beats to impenetrable slabs of musique concrete, this is testament to a sonic genius. Essential.

 


The Supreme Jubilees The Supreme Jubilees – It’ll All Be Over (Light In The Attic)

The latest “find” from crate-digging alchemists Light In The Attic is the debut album from Gospel  combo, The Supreme Jubilees. Their short-lived existence, between 1980 and 1981, yielded this one album of groovy, Soul stirrings and biblically-obsessed, lyrical prophesies which sank without a trace on release. Fortunately for us, this re-issue reminds us that sales are not always an indication of quality.

 


Caribou Vibration Ensemble – CV 2011 (Caribou Vibration Ensemble)Caribou Vibration Ensemble – CV 2011 (Caribou Vibration Ensemble)
Last year’s Caribou album was where Dan Snaith broke free of the shackles of Indie-dom and entered the big league. These songs were collected from two ‘live’ sessions in 2011 and include contributions from James Holden and Kieran Hebden (Four Tet). Unmistakeably pointing the way to his new direction, Snaith manages to re-configure songs from Swim (with re-mixes by his collaborators) into the kind of summer anthems which will make him wealthy and popular in the next twelve months. (Limited to 500 copies on vinyl)
