The Boy And The Tree
The Boy And The Tree
"Wonderful semi-minimalist ethnic soundscapes from the east (woodwinds and strings mostly). It does also go into wonderful latin territory (e.g. Bill Laswell's 'imaginery cuba'). Great production also"
Show of Hands

"Crafty guitarists indeed. Program out the disgusting female vocals (on 5 trks) & you're left with 15 short but perfectly formed angular disorientating guitar workouts. Sublime."

"Fracturered effort but some good tracks on this second lp. Worth listening to"
Rebirth of a Nation

"Political hiphop which is pretty lame considering this bands credentials. They do deliver the goods on about 4 tracks when they get energetic."

"Best female lyricist? TBA"
Peeping Tom

"Doesn't deliver what it promises. Some good tracks though, especially the Dub Trio remix. The production is great."
Chapter One: Descent

"Although not as technical as their later lp, this provides some great noiscore with enough chuggs & rousing statements of intent to keep your head banging. Production is too treble heavy though."

"Vladislav Delay returns with a Luomo inspired lp- TBA"
Mammatus

"Epic and crushing- TBA"
Perils

"Dark carnival orientated art/avant rock for fans of Cuneiform records, Guapo and Galloping Cororners. Sounds like Guapo v Dirty Three. Truely Great stuff"
Perfect Pitch Black
Perfect Pitch Black
"Very poor collection of outtakes and demo's with only the Deftones-esque 'track 3' providing solace. Avoid and buy their full lengths."

"O.k so its not as good as their phenomenal EP but this all instrumental vibraphone heavy lp is perfect for long hazy summer days and train journeys through the south of france."

"Ambient micro techno/glitch experiments- TBA"

"Modern electronic experimental genius- TBA"
Transform

"Dark micro techno made from spastic modem bleeps and other well produced and excellently arranged clicks and cuts. A top disc from a glitch pioneer."
For Carnation

"Sombre, intimate, brooding and atmospheric post-rock reminiscent of Slint and Labradford. Great but don't listen to this when sharpening your switchblade"

"Manuel Gottsching is a hero. With 1974s ultra amazing 'Inventions for electric guitar' he invented dance music. This is the next installment which is a hedonistic 1hr long trk into electronica"
Mort Aux Vaches: Still Contemplation

"RE: Aube's 'ricochetentranc' made entirely of water sounds- TBA"

"Weak lp. Highlights are the unique trk 2 (which gets tiresome though), the badly-drawn-boy-esque sounding trk 3, the goldfrapp (circa felt mountiain) sounding trk 5 and the unhinged instrumental trk 6"
