2016


Major Malfunction (Keith Leblanc) (2016/07/06 08:00)
Bonus beats for a world that lives technology rather than just using it.

Power Inc. Vol. 1 + Vol. 2 (Tackhead) (2016/06/13 09:00)
Until we get a Tackhead box set, these two discs will have to do as a source for anthologizing most of the band's best sampler-drum-machine-and-funk moments.

Aoi no Ue (Jōji Yuasa) (2016/05/30 06:00)
The first of a series of records by Edition Omega Point that explores the undeservedly unheard Japanese avant-garde.

Push My Envelope Dept. (2016/05/24 06:00)
"Transgressive" isn't what it used to be. Maybe it never was.

City: Works Of Fiction (Jon Hassell) (2016/04/01 10:00)
Somewhere between Herbie Hancock's electronic pop-jazz of the 1980s and the more omnivorous, open-ended experimentalism of artists like David Byrne or Brian Eno.

None-Hit Wonders Dept. (2016/03/15 07:00)

2015


The Disintegration Loops (William Basinski) (2015/12/21 10:00)
If there is an award for The Saddest Music In The World, I present it now and forever to William Basinski's Disintegration Loops.

Soliloquy for Lilith (Nurse With Wound) (2015/12/19 11:00)
Those purveyors of sinister whimsy went headfirst into the abyss with this undulating black mirror of a record.

Filth Pig (Ministry) (2015/11/09 10:00)
Tar-caked, blackened, lugubrious, and barbed, the long-lambasted 1996 Ministry album has held up far better than seemed possible.

Trevor Jackson Presents Science Fiction Dancehall Classics (Various Artists) (2015/11/02 09:00)
Lost treasures from the dungeons of the On-U Sound label, unearthed at last.

Irrlicht (Klaus Schulze) (2015/06/10 10:00)
Klaus Schulze's first foray away from Tangerine Dream showed it wasn't the synths that made him what he is.

Soul Discharge (Boredoms) (2015/01/24 10:00)
Does humor belong in music? Yes, but even if it didn't, you're getting it anyway.

2014


Execution Ground (Painkiller) (2014/05/26 10:00)
When John Zorn and Bill Laswell joined forces, the results were nothing short of seismic.

Liberation and Ecstasy (Vasilisk) (2014/03/08 10:00)
Japan's underground tribal unit didn't record much, but the best of its moments are here in one convenient place.

The Rest Is Silence Dept. (2014/02/24 02:30)
Goodbye, classical music.

2013


As The Veneer Of Democracy Starts To Fade (Mark Stewart) (2013/12/28 10:00)
The best bad-sounding record you'll ever hear.

Samuraiera (Various Artists / Kaoru Inoue) (2013/10/04 10:00)

The Art In Yourself (All 57 Varieties) Dept. (2013/09/20 10:00)
The more kinds of art you try, the better your art becomes.

Any Color You Like As Long As It's Black Dept. (2013/08/20 10:00)
Why DC and Marvel are stuck in a taste trap of their own making.

06:21:03:11 UP EVIL (Front 242) (2013/06/19 10:00)
The first ("male") half of Front 242's crowning moment.

One + One By One (Minimal Compact) (2013/06/12 10:00)
Israel's best-known contribution to "post-punk" takes the bad taste out of my mouth left by the term.

Improvisation (Derek Bailey) (2013/06/09 10:00)
