Nauseahtake ‘Laws Of Multiversal Gravitation’ LP/DD 2014

28th October 2014 at 9:19 am

Nauseahtake

I saw Nauseahtake tear up the stage once, but back then they had yet to record. Now, here is an album and I can’t wait to hear what they made of it. The first of three long tracks, The Crust, starts with a didgeridoo…

Musk Ox ‘Woodfall’ CD/DD 2014

24th September 2014 at 9:39 am

Musk Ox

Woodfall from Canadian neofolk/neoclassical act Musk Ox is a little bit of a rarity in a sea of bombastic pomposity and over the top theatricals that plagues many of the more ‘well known’ acts in this field. Pushing those clichés associated with the genre…

Abstruse ‘Inner Space-Outer Void’ & ‘Outer Space-Inner Void’ – Space Twofold Series CD/DD 2014

7th September 2014 at 10:53 am

Abstruse

Is it possible to have too much ambition? In all honesty, the answer is probably no – nothing ventured, nothing gained, and all that jazz. That being said, Abstruse come dangerously close with the Space Twofold Series, two releases – Inner Space-Outer Void and…

Kikagaku Moyo ‘Mammatus Clouds’ LP/DD 2014

19th August 2014 at 9:49 am

Kikagaku Moyo

For me, Japanese psychedelia is one of those genres where my taste is, admittedly, a little undiscerning- if it’s competent I’ll love it, if it’s in the top 10% of the genre, I’ll abuse the shit out of it. Time will tell whether Kikagaku…

Nevermind Me ‘Winter’ CD/DD 2014

3rd August 2014 at 11:09 am

Nevermind

Nevermind Me play shoegaze. Nevermind Me play dreampop. Nevermind Me play… black metal. Generic cross-pollination is commonplace nowadays, and it takes style and originality to stand out. Nevermind Me have plenty of both. Not that they completely defy categorisation, or that they can sit…

Ommadon ‘V’ LP/DD 2014

30th July 2014 at 9:46 am

Ommadon

Monolithic ur-doom-drone druidic duo Ommadon have been engaged on a monomaniacal quest to melt solid stone, liquefy internal organs and vibrate this entire world out of phase and into an adjacent dimension utilising only drums, amps and a singular guitar over the course of…
