HEDGE MAZE - DYSANIA (Lobster Theremin) Untitled is a chattering roller, smothered with a throbbing, wavy bassline and ending in a fuzzy, chord-soaked crescendo, while the slow, drudging rhythms of Dysania give a heavy nod to some of Lowtec's down tempo numbers for the label. The release is rounded out with the glistening, black-sun shower of (slow). All delay-drenched crystal stabs and oscillating soundscapes. A floating, ethereal trip into the afterlife.

Black Zone Myth Chant – Mane Thecel Phares
Black Zone Myth Chant – Mane Thecel Phares (Editions Gravat) Low Jack and Jean Carval’s Gravats label open 2015 with a killer new album from prolific psych-drone artist High Wolf under his Black Zone Myth Chant alias. ‘Mane Thecel Phares’ is a wigged-out trip thru Afro-centric, riddim-driven psychedelia, breaking down the boundaries between Sun Ra, DJ Screw, and Vox Populi! with a smoked-out, blurry vision heightening the effects already felt in his mighty ‘Straight Cassette’ LP for Winged Sun/Laidtbac - listed in many year-end lists for 2014. Mulching the vibes and fibres of celestial jazz, dub and improvised noise into eight papier mãche golems, the session regresses to a headspace of swampy psychedelia from the amorphous synth shapes and primordial pulse of ‘Belshazzar’ to the sub-conscious voices and ancient elegance of ‘If God Is Not Here’. What happens between those pillars remains a mystery, even after you’ve heard it - is ‘In The Arms of The Parcae’ footwork from an alternate dimension? Could ‘Two Stars, No Cross’ possibly be Francis Bebey’s starchild from Andromeda? Are the polytonal chorales of ‘He Evil’ attempting to communicate in a forgotten language? With your help we can begin to unravel this enigma. Please note down and let us know if you experience any irregularities in breathing, vision, appetite or speech during or after consumption…. in boomkat

µ-Ziq - XTLP
µ-Ziq - XTLP (Planet MU) In stark contrast to a large percentage of his previous work, XTLP is joyous all the way through. The twelve compositions abandon the furrow-browed quest for cutting-edge exploration exchanging it for an altogether more carefree and fun approach, with only the footwork-influenced 'Monj2' and exclusive track ‘Forger’ directly referencing any current electronic influences. 'XTEP' is full of nostalgic melody, rave romance and charm... As always, that blend of naif insouciance and eldritch oddness hits the spot like the few others. Recommended!

RAICA - Dose
RAICA - Dose (Further Records) Comentários: Further Records co-boss lady Chloe Harris presents her excellent 2nd solo album of ambient synth drone. On 'Dose' she conducts herself with minimal, uncluttered elegance over eight neatly constructed tracks. Compared with the spooling tendencies of many in the neo-kosmische realm, Reica's pieces are more buttoned up, like bubbling oddities made in a micro-brewery for those with more esoteric tastes. There's still a definite new age tendency, but one reined-in by a DJ's sense of timing and a personal, tactile feel for ambient pop sweetness that displays her great taste in music. The results sit somewhere betwee
n a lo-fi SAW II and the harmonised synth drift of Madalyn Merkey - which is a great thing in our books. Recommended. in boomkat

Paper Dollhouse - Aeonflower
**Sterling dark pop and stark ambient noise somewhere between Grouper and Vatican Shadow. Edition of 500 with tracing paper insert and download code** There's some genuinely dark magick at work in Paper Dollhouse's debut LP for Glasgow's Night School Records. The London-based duo of Nina Bosnic and Astrud Steehouder are in possession/possessed by a gothic, oneiric spirit which has previously been revealed on Jane Weaver's Bird Records - who also present a cassette version of this LP - and alongside Magpahi for Devon Folklore Tapes Vol. IV. But this is arguably their most effective invocation to date. Guided by black light they offer 10 concentric circles crossing dimensions between occult folk, cinematic techno and crushing noise scapes, calling to mind comparisons with everyone from Vatican Shadow or Prurient to Ectoplasm Girls and Grouper, but maintaining their very own silhouette against that backdrop. In a word, it's spellbinding stuff and we reckon a lot of folk are going to fall for them. in boomkat

Cakes Da Killa - #IMF
Following his last full-length, The Eulogy, which was released through Mishka Records in 2013, Brooklyn-based MC Cakes Da Killa spent 2014 dropping two mixtapes under his Hunger Pangs series. Now, kicking off 2015 properly, Cakes comes alive with his EP #IMF, just in time for Valentine's Day. The EP features five tracks of thumping electronic instrumentation that blend with spaced out, near tribal elements, providing a proper platformula for Cakes' hypnotic tales of beauty, lust, and wavey late night vibes.

SM NURSE - Hometape Recordings 1981-1983
SM NURSE - Hometape Recordings 1981-1983 (Domestica Spain) Comentários: compilation of the best songs recorded in the studio between 1981 and 1983, and never before edited in vinyl format. I deeply want to thank Menko Konings for his trust, kindness, patience, faith and friendship…we don’t meet people like him every day.
A short biography by S.M. Nurse:
Around 1980 Menko Konings (eM.) started the Dutch underground formation S.M. Nurse, first together with Jos Jak and later also with Anneke Stempher. S.M. Nurse experimented with collage-like music and were inspired by N.Y.-ultra, disco e.g. The band mainly performed in the Amsterdam ultra-circuit (Oktopus, Paradiso), clubs and discotheques. They were played regularly on the famous radio programmes RadioNome and Spleen and performed live on radio in the villa of the VPRO in Hilversum. They also contributed to the theme cassette Turkish Delight of the label Ding Dong and there was a cassette release on the label Top Tape. At the end of 1983, S.M. Nurse split up.
The songs of S.M. Nurse are composed and performed by Anneke Stempher, Jos Jak and Menko Konings.
Mastered 2014 by Yves Roussel.

Demdike Stare - Testpressing#007
Demdike Stare - Testpressing#007 (Modern Love) Comentários: *The seventh and final instalment in the Testpressing Series for the time being - Limited Edition pressing including insert with artwork by Alex Solman and hand-stamped sleeves* Hands-down, #7 is the best Testpressing yet from Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty's Demdike Stare. Landing almost two years since the series began back in 2013, and six months on from their last raid, it's a dichotomy of dancefloor devilment, going hard for it on one side, and running ragged emotions on the other. A-side 'Rathe' opens the doors of perception to a show-stopping bloom of heavenly voices and halfstep jungle, ratcheting the levels to heart-in-mouth effect with panoramic harmonies and ricochet drums that sound like a fwwwd update of Windowlicker, all owing as much to Source Direct as Alice Coltrane. B-side, 'Patchwork' is a whole other madness. Shocking in a different style, it consolidates swirling, norish samples nodding to Italian concrète with the kind of 2-step swerve last heard on Artwork's 'Red’ EP - proper feral, swinging business. We seen and heard it go off in the dance and can safely confirm that it's one of the baddest joints in their now extensive catalogue... via boomkat
