Swans – The World Looks Red / The World Looks Black

Swans continue on their mantric psychedelia path with this expansive track from last years ‘The Glowing Man’ album. Sounds like the band had ingested heaps of spaced out Krautrock and early Pink Floyd. Wunderbar!

Model 500 – Mind Changes

Classic Detroit Techno from 1992 with a track from Juan Atkins’s Model 500 project. This was from ‘The Passage’ EP, and is the standout track. Hi tech Soul with some synthetic melancholic edges.

Martyn – U1-U8

Some nice Housey doings from his 2015 EP “Falling For You”.

Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band-Electricity (Cannes Live 1968)

Don and His Magic Band (who truly live up to their name here) juggle fiery demon blues and witchy Americana; managing to keep all the volatile ingredients in place and delivering grooves and thangs. Also, was nice to see this song referenced in Twin Peaks: the Return. Did anyone notice?

The Black Dog – Kings Of Sparta

Twilight electronica; the perfect soundtrack to driving around London on a dark winter night. From their 1993 album ‘Temple Of Transparent Balls’

Renaldo & the Loaf – Lime Jelly Grass

This is where the madness starts! The opening track to the gaggle of lysergic tape-loops, toy drums, and candy-coloured chants that is their 1980 masterpiece ‘Songs For Swinging Larvae’.

Repeat – Tomorrows People

Another slice of deep, ambient Techno from the quartet of Ed Handley, Andy Turner, Dave Hill, and Mark Broom. A slice of electronic beauty.

Can – Moonshake

We honour Holger Czukay, who sadly passed away, with this mantric, propulsive banger from Can’s 1973 album ‘Future Days’.

Ui – Drive Until He Sleeps

Lovely, lovely stuff from the New York trio’s 1998 album ‘Lifelike’. The band manage to wrap some sultry bass licks around the post Rock breaks.

The Human Beinz – Nobody But Me

Cool Garage Rock from the Ohio acts debut album from 1967; also titled ‘Nobody But Me’. Rez heads will know this from ‘Meet The Residents’, where the phenomenal Pop combo plundered it for the start of ‘N-ER-GEE (Crisis Blues)’. Dig.
