Helm: Olympic Mess

‘Experimental’ music often fails to relate to any tangible experience. Compositions are marvelled at for their imagination, academic brilliance or technical wizardry, but fail to connect beyond that. With Olympic Mess, Younger has succeeded in capturing a time and a place, using murky intensity to document modern London.

Objekt: Flatland

It is challenging, it is experimental, it is fractured and skittish. It is brazen in some places, and indirect in others…However the album triumphs primarily in its achievement of every great LP’s lofty ambition: to walk a tightrope between diversity and cogency.

Lee Gamble: KOCH

As with ‘Diversions 1994-96’ and ‘Dutch Tvashar Plumes’ this is absolutely an album of deconstruction – stripping the genres of jungle and techno, treating them as if musical cadavers and dissecting, reconstructing.

M.E.S.H. : Scythians EP

M.E.S.H. plays with a downright weird combination of genres that in less able hands would fall apart at the seams yet here gains multiple listens in an attempt to fathom its obscure depths.

Valerio Tricoli: Miseri Lares

The focus of the album is sound, pure and simple. Both musical and non-musical sources are treated as equal objects to be manipulated into a new expression.
