    "A year after the cassette-only release of Switched On Ra, another format has fallen from whatever kind of rare ether Bitchin Bajas occupy when they're at home The LP edition of Switched On Ra bears all the same riches (only richer of course) in its grooves, adding a lovely screen-printed rendering of the graphics to its...
  • Since 2014, Wand have made five albums (and an EP) in the studio and a living playing on the road Business/pleasure: the two sides of their (multiverticed, decagon) coin, flipping in the strobe light of ongoing self actualization And yet, by doing both at the same time—making a record of them playing live—they’ve now made...

  • And suddenly! With a tactile clunk, Bajascillators bubbles to the surface 'Amorpha,' a side-long shower of synthetic bells and bass, as patterns interlock and repeat and the beat within the barlines shifts constantly, forms a new, latest miniature of infinity You flip it, and 'Geomancy' resets you, starting anew, with heavy drift...

  • Hello, Hi: welcome in to a new room to play the styles and feels that lie under Ty Segall’s fingers, easing fresh air into acoustic space with an assortment of love songs flowering in righteous unconsciousness Plaintive and wistful, but unafraid Like rain washing away yesterday, Hello, Hi pushes open the door, inviting the new...

  • Ty Segall meets a new non-rock challenge head-on; soundtrack music for the documentary film Whirlybird A variety of synth sounds, electric keyboards, drums, percussion and saxophone (and yeah, a few guitars) form a shifting impressionist counterpart, instrumental music that dialogues with and serves to frame the film’s...
  • "What is Woo Woo are two - the brothers Mark and Clive Ives, who in the 1980s made a pair of addictively appealing yet largely unknown records Their second, It's Cosy Inside, released in 1989, qualifies as some of the most electronic organic music ever made We hearken back to a friendlier time, the 1970s, when Woo first began...

  • BACK IN PRINT!!! NUNO CANAVARRO's Plux Quba hails from three decades in the past, yet the simple profile of its abstract/ambient/cutup collage makes it a record that sits quite comfortably in our IDM-informed future In 1988, Plux Quba was a primal dark horse in the world of pants-forward electronic music—an obscurity issued with...
