Mutant Joe: Home Invasion Anthems

Album’s that truly keep you guessing like this one don’t come across too often – stick it on and be glad that Joe’s chosen your home to invade.

HTRK: Venus in Leo

Rarely does an album’s title so perfectly reflect it’s narrative and mood. To listen to The Garden of Perpetual Dreams is to experience the immaculately-tended, Freeky Deeky forest of Brunnen’s mind.

Robert ÆOLUS Myers: Talisman

Robert ÆOLUS Myers, a resident of Hawaii since the mid-70s whose island-tinged electroacoustic meditations were the subject of a compilation from Aloha Got Soul in 2017. Now the fine folk at Origin Peoples are having a crack, and they’re bringing added firepower with them in the form of a live recording and clutch of remixes.

Wanna get weird? How about a supremely immersive and psyched-out early 70s masterpiece featuring spacey concrète-esque drones, manipulated bird noises and wild, Ayler-on-a-speed-bender free jazz instrumentation? …Sure!

Ulla Straus: Big Room

‘Big Room’ is a small but perfectly formed moment that can’t fail to brighten your mood, a 30-minute flash of light-hearted joy to touch even the crankiest among us.

Dungeon Rap: The Introduction

Ever wondered what Memphis Horrorcore might sound like if it were wrenched out of the Deep South, dragged through the gutter to a Scandinavian doom metal gig and spat out in a modern day industrial estate in Eastern Europe?

Meitei: Komachi

‘Komachi’ is the producer’s beatific ode to his recently passed Grandmother, a woman he saw as representing a traditional Japanese sense of beauty, sophistication and tranquility that is gradually disappearing.
