Nature’s Clumsy Hand by Asha Vida (Review)Asha Vida do wake up echoes of early Verve in a couple of the songs on Nature’s Clumsy Hand.
Parallel Thoughts EP by The Waterfall Effect (Review)It’s pretty obvious where The Waterfall Effect derives its sound, but it does so without sounding terribly derivative.
Hung Over as the Queen in the Maida Vale by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (Review)This single song shows why they are currently putting out some of the best music today.
Sound of Violence by The Third Eye Foundation (Review)But there’s just too much going on at once in these songs, and it’s not used effectively.
Issue II by Bon Voyage (Review)Bon Voyage plays beautiful, sweet pop perfection.
13 Drones by James Potter (Review)This disk will fit nicely next to that E.A.R. record you own (or should).
Music for Pleasure by Monaco (Review)Monaco’s music is marked by the immediately distinctive bass playing of Peter Hook.
Umani Sampler by Anymore (Review)Swirling guitars and glittering electronics lead the way, with female vocals weaving in and out.
Inferno by Witchman, Jammin Unit (Review)The time off given to these machines and beats seems to let one hear them in a new context though.
Chaos by Christian Plumber (Review)An awesome noise/experimental offering.
V.2.1.7 by Colossal Spin (Review)Integrates industrial elements into a high voltage, easily recognizable Seattle modern rock sound.
Dat Mot Revisited/Gigabyte by Dat Mot (Review)Let these two releases be a lesson to the kids; you don’t need a record deal to make records.
A Watching Wilder Edit by Various Artists (Review)Simply put, this disc is all over the place, jumping from dub to hip-hop, drum n’ bass to club-friendly downbeat.
Love & Other Catastrophes by Various Artists (Review)The soundtrack is a great sampler of some of the best acts on the Australian music scene.
After The Flood by After the Flood (Review)After the Flood takes the eerie otherworldliness of Lucid’s music and makes it more musical and listenable.
