    STAFF COMMENTS

    Millie says: Funky lil' 7" packed with sass and attitude, Central Timing feeling like it's straight out of the 70s with style straight into 2022, it's a switch up from the b-side, slow chuggy funk number. So so good.

    Sarmacja is Aleksandra Szalinska, Pawel Bartnik & MIchal Kolowacik. "Booh EP" was released by Byrd Out in May last year. Here we get a veritable bouquet of beautifully diverse remixes - spanning digi-dub, downbeat, house, electronica and nu-soul.

    Such a varied set of styles is somehow made cohesive by the delectable vocals from Sarmacja and the high gloss, picturesque approach which each of the artists has taken to the project. These are wide-screen compositions which reveal more and more with every listen. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the already sublime "Booh EP" and a brilliant companion for solitary early evening listening. Check!

    Mineral Cuts come through with an archival release of killer, mid 90s deep tech house here. Thotful Spot's "Trans-Sylvania" was released in 1994 on Basic Energy and is a buoyant, tribal-tinged number that recalls Andrew Weatherall's Deanne Day alias - techy, proggy and bouncy, and rooted in an electronic hypnosis.

    Nüw Idol's "Restore" is from 1993 and originally released on Nüw Communications. Its sweeping synth patches, rubberized bass and vocodered leads all giving it a very proggy, expansive sound that you could compare to Deep Dish or some of Danny Tenaglia's Tribal imprint.

    Both tracks sound well up to the job of making modern dancefloors move - their kinetic energy and wide-screen gloss suited to both big stadiums and low roofed backrooms equally well. Don't sleep!

    Matt says: Much needed repress of this mid 90s house gem that'll appeal to fans of Andrew Weatherall, Tribal, Deep Dish etc. Proggy... techy... very tasty!

    M-O-F Featuring William K Hall

    My Opposite Sex / Trip City

    OK, we know this one comes with a big price tag but it's an almighty coup for Compassion Cuts. 2 house cuts with lashings off disco flavour taken from M-O-F's 1990 debut and only release, the "Natural Vibe" LP on the private press Future Step Sirkle label. Mega elusive and somewhat of a holy grail for early house collectors, this is the first time these tracks are released on 12" and there's only 400 of them to go around with absolutely no digital release to accompany it. Keeping this gem from spilling too much overground you've gotta salute Compassion Cuts for letting the attentive in on the action!

    You'll struggle to comprehend "My Opposite Sex" is from 1990. Ridiculously chunky, heavily swung and packing a serious punch, the rolling congas, playful childlike vocal hook and a flavour so punky-funky it'd make ACR and ESG reconsider their next career move this fist pumping proto-house bomb will tear the down the roof and have people dancing on tables in no time.

    "Trip City" rolls on even more of a disco groove, big timpani lines, wandering clavs, smarmy max and driving 4/4 drums all kettled under duress by a bossy slap bass line that takes noooo shit. One of those jams you'd expect Theo, MCDE or Young Marco to unleash to the masses, I've defo not heard this out and about much (and all?) making me think it's not totally blown up YET. (spoiler: it will).

    Capitol Cuts

      Recorded direct to acetate - all live, no overdubs - Capitol Cuts - Live from Studio A captures a powerful moment in time. After months of cancelled shows Black Pumas went to Los Angeles this past fall and laid down eight explosive tracks at the famed Capitol Studios. The recording brims with pent up energy, nearly bursting through the grooves on the expansive and mind-blowing seven minute rendition of “Colors.” A few weeks later the song would receive a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year.

      The first volume of Guest edits was a big favourite round these parts and I'm delighted to say that Vol. 2 is every bit as brill as its predecessor. Once again we get precious gems mined from a wall of vinyl. Cut, polished, and mounted for maximum love.

      Our party starts with a frisky biscuit on the A1, the frothy disco delight of "Happens At Night", a magical melange of strings, horns and female vocals which conjures images of dizzying mirrorballs and DJ Harvey winking. From there we head to Italy with a wicked little mix of Ennio Morricone's "Come Maddalena", a certified cosmic classic with twinkling chimes, cooing vocals and a rubbery bassline. On the B1 "Sisters" is the cooler low slung sibling of the A1, giving us disco energy at hip thrusting tempo - I'm unsure whether we're doing the hustle or the bump here, but once the Moog squelch bursts forth I'm doing my trademark frog dance. As with the first volume, Guest reserves the B2 for a slow cosmic / Balearic masterpiece, all steady bass groove, spacey FX and low male vocal - always a winner for me.

      Flexi is a record store and music label based in Italy and run by Simone and Lorenzo. Over the years, Flexi have gained both the respect and recognition of the music scene, earned by almost forty years of experience in the world of music and with the support of many DJs, artists and fans

      Finally the camp return with a new 12" in the “Velvet Series”. Featuring six acts that are completely new to me (bonus) and seemingly representing the best new primtive house, atmospheric techno and moody electro that Europe has to offer.

      The A side opening is by Bologna-based Brine, with “YR Body”, providing a wobbly Juno bassline and catchy HOUSE vox; nicely shuffled for extra wiggle. Then we have “Benerice" from Daughters and Sons (aka Luca Fronza) who throws us into a beautiful, Detroit-inspired analog jam rich with synth work and interesting;y programmed snare & hi-hat patterns.

      Sicily man Manuold is up next with an amazingly stylish take on the Italo-house blueprint which reminds oneself of finding a lesser known but incredibly tasty vintage Barolo - yum yum!

      On the B side, welcome back the veterans Tengrams (formerly the Piatto brothers from N.O.I.A Records) with the outstanding "Rapid Eye Movement" which traverses across retro-futurist influences and 808 patterns under a dystopian-sci-fi movie theme - wild!

      "Dreaming Pad" is by the Calma duo who play with a few elements to build a neverending, slow-techno climax...did you recognise the sample?

      The last track is a sort of relaxing downtempo sunset closure complete with bells, from the California producer Gloved Hands, whose relaxed composier and super chilled demenia are the perfect tonic to unwind with after dancing the whole night under the stars.

      With a clutch of deeply conceptual albums on subjects as diverse as the anthropocene and sleep paralysis after a major car accident, Cuts' latest album, ‘Unreal’, is a cathartic and mournful meditation on pandemics, populism and disinformation. ‘Unreal’ is the second full-length album by musician and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr’s CUTS moniker. Tracks retain their emotional resonances in strong melodies and eerie vocals but there is also a hard edge to the music compared to previous releases. “I’ve always reacted to my environment,” explains Tombling, “and a lot of the themes I am exploring on ‘Unreal’ are around climate crisis, pandemics, and the terrifying rise of far right orators.”

      ‘Unreal’ was largely made in lockdown, as Tombling moved to an isolated house where there was no phone or internet three days before full lockdown was introduced across the UK. He soon built a routine of foraging for dinner in the morning and making music all afternoon. It marks a major departure in his output, as the first album not to be rooted in his films.

      It opens with ‘R U OK?’, with a precipitous bass drop into anxious rhythms like irregular heartbeats. ‘Dissolution’ is a vocoder ballad for fragmenting hardware; ‘Unreal’ is a hazy roller, evoking fast cars on highways at night. ‘Omega Minus’ is a requiem for postindustrial wastelands, as robotic voices sweep over dust storms and obsolete machinery, then ‘Sheltered Life’ harnesses coarse, rippling static around depth-charge bass. ‘The Brink’ brings on woozy and elastic basslines, ‘Exhale Exile’ sways in melodic loops lashed to fitful beats, then final track ‘An Infinite Collapse’ blows off the grit to reveal songlines and crumbling metallic pulses that crackle with static electricity.

      Tombling’s sound world for ‘Unreal’ is one of anxiety, frustration and emotional peaks, where heavy slugs of sound are lifted by vocoder lyricism, sharp static and fizzing cymbals that cut through like shafts of light in abandoned warehouses. “It’s the heaviest record I’ve made,” says Tombling, “but it’s also the most accessible. I was much more influenced by what's going on in the world - it’s impossible not to be at a moment like this.”

      Buzzsaw Joint Cuts 5 & 6

        Buzzsaw Joint was born of a club offering Londoners the chance to revel in the sounds of good ol’ trashy rock’n’roll in all its vintage vinyl forms. Club top-cat, Fritz, then took the primitive Buzzsaw sounds online with a series of savage Mixcloud mixes created by record fiends from all over the globe. Now, the high-octane energy of Buzzsaw Joint has manifested into the physical form with a run of compilations on Stag-O-Lee. Get your ears around the wild’n’weird sounds of the extraordinary and inimitable Buzzsaw Joint! mixcloud.com/BuzzsawJoint.

        Great Canadian jazz re-issue on Dynamite Cuts from Bernie Senensky, recorded in 1975. The title track is a piano-led number with frenetic and skill instrumentation and some heavy upright bass support.

        "Beloved Gift" on side B is more cerebral with a long extended, psychedelic intro before dropping into some seriously funky jazz-funk fusion, with that omnipresent upright bass twatting away nicely.

        If you like your jazz brimming with highly accomplished instrumentation and flair - this one's for you baby!

            Cuts

            A Gradual Decline

              Cuts, the audio-visual project of composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr, releases his debut album ‘A Gradual Decline’ through Village Green Recordings. Available on double vinyl and CD with printed inners featuring artwork photography taken by Cuts himself in Iceland.  

              Summoning 11 widescreen, electronic compositions in response to global political and environmental breakdown, ‘A Gradual Decline’ addresses the planet’s current fragility using actual field recordings of ice collapsing from glaciers. Weaving these momentary, dramatic events directly into the DNA of the music, Cuts has sculpted rhythmic elements out of geological transformation.

              A stark sense of urgency permeates ‘A Gradual Decline’. At times chaotic and alarming, the album’s siren-like tones and volatile, stuttered beats converge with synthetic gales of melody and glacial percussion. Elsewhere, the sense of precariousness is subtler, enveloped in gaseous chords that swell and evaporate, ethereal and dense guitars and distant vocals – all hallmarks of previous Cuts material - here honed into a concise, conceptual set.

              Ryley Walker

              Golden Sings That Have Been Sung - Deep Cuts Edition

              Ryley Walker is pleased to announce his new album, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, coming out August 19th on Dead Oceans. It’s the triumphant follow up to his breakout album, Primrose Green, which earned critical hosannas from the likes of NPR, Village Voice, Uncut, and Mojo and admiration of musicians who had chalked up no shortage of turntable miles in Walker’s life. Robert Plant declared himself a fan – as did double-bass legend Danny Thompson, with whom Ryley embarked on a British tour.

              In November 2015, at the end of a ten-month period which saw Ryley play over 200 shows in support of Primrose Green, Ryley decided that he should probably head home. However you wished to measure it, he was surely due some sort of holiday. Although, a holiday was the last thing on Ryley’s mind – and certainly not a holiday in his adopted hometown. After a year spent on the road, all that Ryley could associate with Chicago was the emotional debris he had left behind.

              He went into the studio over the Christmas vacation to record Golden Sings That Have Been Sung whose songs were directly wedded to Ryley’s return to Chicago. Some of his formative musical memories had been shaped by the work of pioneering Chicago acts such as Gastr del Sol and Tortoise. “Jeff Parker was the guitarist with Tortoise, and I used to listen to him a lot,” recalls Ryley, who figured that, for the first time in his career, it might be helpful to enlist the services of a producer. With only one person on his shortlist, once again, all roads led back to Chicago.

              Ryley had been a long-time admirer of sometime Wilco multi-instrumentalist LeRoy Bach. Back in 2009, still in his teens, he had frequented the improv nights hosted by Bach at a restaurant/gallery space called Whistler. “For me, it was an incredible opportunity,” recalls Ryley, “…because you would sometimes also have Dan Bitney, the drummer with Tortoise, and I’d get to play with these people. I mean, they were twice my age. I’m sure they thought I was annoying at first, maybe some of them still do, but I kind of looked at them like gurus – and to have these old school Chicago heads taking me in was just amazing.”

              For Ryley then, the prospect of having Bach produce his album was something of a no-brainer. “It was everything I wanted it to be,” he enthuses. “I would go to LeRoy’s house every other day with a riff, and we would take it from there.” Perhaps more than any other song on the record, the somnambulant sun-dappled intimacies of opening track and lead single “The Halfwit In Me” most audibly bear the imprint of those Whistler sessions.

              Golden Sings That Have Been Sung was made for the dewy magic hour when night and day have yet to meet and, as long as the song is playing, you feel might briefly leave the corporeal world with them. This is the music you might imagine the woodland animals making once the humans have left for the night. This is Ryley Walker’s coming of age.

              STAFF COMMENTS

              Barry says: Having been one of our end of year favourites in 2015, Ryley Walker had a lot to live up to with this follow-up (obviously he had impressing us in mind). It turns out that this is just as monumental, if not moreso. There is a sense of assurance here, a confidence gained through years of honing his craft. Perfectly sculpted Americana-tinged acoustic guitars are bolstered but never overpowered by frenetic violin slashes, molasses-slow drums perfectly compliment the unhurried and confident instrumentation. Walker and band have got a lot of bettering to do if they'll ever top this, but going on previous form, i'm sure they will. An absorbing and rewarding listen.

              Jayson Bros

              Monster Box / All My Life

              This is the first release by the Jayson Brothers on Motor City Drum Ensemble's Raw Cuts imprint. With a little help from MCDE's arranging skills, the two Jayson Brothers continue what the previous Raw Cuts twelves started: Bringing back some dirt, samples and emotion into today's house music scene. "Monster Box", with its swinging 909 kicks, clipped disco beat and Rhodes / guitar combination sounds like a lost Strictly Rhythm gem from the early 90s - wait for the killer female vocal sample in the middle. The more beatdown "All My Life" could even be released way back in the late 70s - it's a disco re-edit, but brings extra samples into the equation. You'll be surprised how this will rock your floor at just 105bpm! Both sides are recommended!

              Cuts Across The Land

                Twelve slices of cool, sassy garage rock'n'roll veering between throbbing slo-mo tracks like the opener "Cuts Across The Land" and "You Were Born Inside My Heart" to spikier more uptempo tracks: "Fades The Sun" and the excellent "Lion Rip". All topped off with Liela Moss' great vocals at times reminiscent of PJ Harvey's best bluesy croon, at others more abrasive and occasionally, sweet and soulful.

                The Short-Cuts

                Tie Their Own Shoelaces

                  Thirteen tracks recorded between 1998 and 2003 from Manchester based The Short-Cuts. Influenced by the Descendents and other SST bands this quartet know how to rock in that power-pop-punk stylee as well as tie their own shoelaces. Local boys done good!

                  The Cuts

                  2 Over Ten

                    The Cuts are four 20-somethings from Oakland, California, who make some of the best garage pop that you'll hear today. Their wild sonic tantrums and lust scorched anthems are so soaked in Nuggets history it's hard to believe they aren't from the same time period. This is their second full length (their first for Birdman). 11 tracks of sharp garage pop with a tip of the hat to the Real Kids, Television, and the first Nuggets boxset!
