LFO – Shove Piggy Shove

Expansive Electronica with a lovely Jazzy percussive shuffle to it; from the Leeds duo’s 1996 album ‘Advance’.


The Hair and Skin Trading Company – Highbury

Sparkly, mantric Avant-Rock from the UK acts 1996 EP ‘Crouch End’.

final – 2 (Full Album)

Want some dark, icy drone? Well, here’s a whole album of primo Isolationism from Justin Broadrick’s drone project final.; his 2nd album, 1996’s ‘2’.

Broadcast – Accidentals

Lovely stuff from everyone’s favourite Brummy Hauntologists, with a piece that is aptly titled as it samples a track from the “Accident” movie OST (1967). Sweetly drift away to this loveliness off of their 1996 7″ titled “Accidentals”.

Stasis – Utopia Planetia

Strong Detroit flavours in this track from the UK’s Steve Pickton. Lovely Techno from his 1996 album ‘fromtheoldtothenew’.

Stock, Hausen & Walkman – Sponge[A]

Lounge sampledelia from the UK duo’s 1996 album ‘Organ Transplants Vol 1’. This one lulls you into a false sense of security before…….

Tipsy – Liquordelic

Get your cocktails out (matron) and do the rhumba, because Tipsy are here with some dayglo, loungecore plunderphonics from their 1996 album ‘Trip Tease’.

Tipsy – Space Golf

Well, after posting Stock, Hausen & Walkman yesterday, it only seems fitting to post material from a US band who released an album of Sampledelic loungecore the very same year the aforementioned brits released ‘Organ Transplants: Vol 1’. Tipsy gave the world the fantastic ‘Trip Tease’ in 1996, where formica psychedelics meets morphing draylon sofas.

Stock, Hausen & Walkmen – Schweitzer

Plundered lounger buffoonery from the bands classic 1996 album ‘Organ Transplants: Volume 1’.

Orbital – The Girl With The Sun In Her Head

This was the opening track from their 1996 album ‘In Sides’, which was just before they went all Dr. Who and lost it.While there are elements of their Electronica that is very much of its time (the breaks come to mind), there is still something rather lovely about tracks like this that manages to pull on the heartstrings.
