Jex Thoth - S/T - CD 2008

The first thing I’ll say about this album is… Get yourself suitably sedated and let this fucker drag you back to a time long before soapbar. Opener, ‘Nothing Left to Die’ should not take long to put a smile on your face (probably about…

Asva ‘What You Don’t Know Is Frontier’ CD 2008

1st August 2008 at 9:01 am

Asva

Not a record for passive consumption was something I read in a recent review for this the latest Asva album, and I’d say that is very true. The four huge, dark and brooding tracks on offer here demand attention and submergence, this would not…

Jarboe / Justin K Broadrick

I played this for a friend of mine recently and his main reaction was “I would not fancy this on acid”. Indeed, and I can see where he is coming from. This release is strange and atmospheric, also at times rather unsettling. That said…
