Death and Vanilla - Are You A Dreamer?
There’s something about the Swedish city of Malmo that doesn’t add up.
Named the “happiest” city in Sweden in 2016 (who gets the job of judging these things?), Malmo’s DNA contains a “none-coding” strain that reveals the city’s penchant for a world more studious, fashioned in a vint...
Howe Gelb - Gathered
Eavesdropping is an art. And on Howe Gelb’s new solo album, ‘Gathered’, it’s been perfected. A chance meeting heard through a door half cracked open, it’s an album of candid romanticism, a footnote to your heart’s history.
On ‘Gathered’, it feels like you’re privy to musings on a muse (or tw...
Half Japanese - Invincible
Puppet people, vampires and the walking dead frequent the world of Jad Fair’s songwriting - outside of those interruptions he’s besotted. Maybe even in love. He feels invincible and as the closing instrumental cut ‘Indestructible’ floats off into the ether there’s a feeling of job done; we can r...

The Bevis Frond - We're Your Friends, Man
Docking alongside the Mothership Frond, with its insignia emblazoned with the legend ‘We’re Your Friends, Man’, you can hear a smattering of Hendrixonian guitar wafting through the cavernous recess of this vessel. You can hear a Love-like strum, a melancholy verse/chorus; you can hear proper son...
Jane Weaver - The Silver Globe
In the madrigal-strewn world of neo folk-psychedelia, the queen of drones holds court…
In this late teen decade, as green men are burnt, resources dwindle and naturalists plunder for authentic Englishness, the hunt for the grail-like Silver Globe continues.
Back in 2014, the story was first wh...

Josephine Foster - Faithful Fairy Harmony
Josephine raises a stained-glass lamp and shepherds us spelunking the depths of spirit in this four-part double album. Following the fame of her voice are choruses of winged entities (and a space shuttle) that ascend and descend a maze of spirituals: ritual prayers, blues laments, vestal hymns a...
Mary Lou Lord - Got No Shadow
