I can't say I've ever harboured much impassioned desire to play with the psych revivalism peddled by onetime Jing Jang Jong types TOY , although at that same time I've struggled overnight to neglect the hypnotic psychosis they here contrive to conjure beyond Natasha Khan's unprecedentedly impressive Siouxsie impression, as the Londoners combine to cover Amir Rassaei's Aroos Khanom. Initially intended as an exhibition of 'Funk, Psychedelia and Pop from the Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation' which featured on the profusely celebrated Zendooni compilation (a tenuous Middle Eastern alternative to Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965–1968 reissued just last [...]
Every once in a while, a crossover electronic effort will initially suffer a chronic misdiagnosis only to later foment an epidemic of ubiquitous eulogy. That record of yesteryear was, without question, John Talabot's ƒIN whilst that of this year would seemingly already belong to a namesake of the Catalan pulse monger in the already rather more revered form of estimable London producer, Jon Hopkins . Immunity is his fourth, and perhaps aptly most contagious recording to date – an exacting hour of immersive techno which dextrously, if only gently touches upon the murkier [...]

Allaying all fears of getting carried away with El-P and Killer Mike's Run The Jewels enterprise, we're back with the transatlantic experimental rap titans as they dump down the hefting 363 Chain. The inaugural release from this year's Adult Swim Singles series – one which is also to feature the likes of Mykki Blanco, Marnie Stern, Mac DeMarco and so on and so forth a little later on – it's their most divergent endeavour thus far, flippant Flatlander glitch dextrously intermingled with crisply accented, echo-addled drops and mutinous lyrics concerning Castro, Che, and a "carful of females."

To insinuate that the collective career of enigmatic Antipodean duo Empire Of The Sun has had its ups, downs and in-betweens thus far is to gravely understate their mutable fluctuations in fortune. And yet aside from the breakups, the reputed breakdown in general relations between Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore, and the abiding silences since they've managed to maintain an unerringly acute focus every time they've deigned to foray deep into the vulnerable belly of popular culture. They've a sophomore recording slated for release next week although ahead of fully immersive embarkation upon Ice On The Dune [...]

It's on an unprecedentedly estival afternoon that Wolf Alice and I bare teeth to meet on what has been a long overdue encounter. Amid talk of Glastonbury heat waves and exponentially hotting climes, January thankfully couldn't feel further removed from this afternoon and indeed it seems an apt time to speak with a band to be bracketed among the hottest properties of an onsetting summer at that acute point at which the season seems to be at last beginning in earnest. Though a notable element of the nom de plume on which they've doubtless been quizzed [...]

Bleep Bloop, The Reverend, has been blowing our minds for the last year or so. Now of course I could give a summary of all greatness he has released in the past, but his newest tune, Still Gone, is just the sickest thing I've heard today. The bass and vibe on this one is amazing. https://soundcloud.com/bleep-b loop/stillgone Free D/L The post Bleep Bloop - Still Gone [...]

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 29-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith. Half hostage. Half victim. Blackmail shifts around. There is a closing up and drawing in. The spectacle is the reward. In a [...]
