Baby Ford – NYC Slippers

Slithers of Disco shimmer on this taut, tight Microhouse number from the UK veteran. This is from Ford’s 2004 album ‘Basking In The Brakelights’


Liars – There’s Always Room On The Broom

Some scuzzy Punk-Funk from ‘They Were Wrong, So We Drowned’, the bands 2004 album about Witchcraft upon the Brocken (Mountain) during German Walpurgis Nacht.

Ginnungagap – Duel Ravens

Droning folky doings from Anthony Sylvester and Stephen O’Malley’s Ginnungagap (named after the yawning void from Norse mythology) project. From the album Remeindre (2004). This void is warm and cosy.

Avarus – Iso Lääkelaiva

Finnish Avant-Rockers Avarus with some dream-like Crispy Witch folk from their 2004 album ‘Jättiläisrotta’. Lovely stuff that harks back to the Folk-Krautrock of acts such as Limbus 4.

Electrelane – Take The Bit Between Your Teeth

Absolute stonker from the band’s 2004 album ‘The Power Out’.

Andrew Liles – The Ether Reel

Creepy and melancholic at the same time; in true Nursey fashion. Thank you Andrew Liles. From his 2004 album ‘My Long Accumulating Discontent’.

Jeff Mills – Zenith

Detroit Techno, pure and simple. This lovely slice of Hi-Tech Soul is from the one and only Jeff Mills a.k.a ‘The Wizard’. Taken from ‘From The 21st Part 1’ (2004).

Black Dice – Miles Of Smiles

Field recordings meet the Dice’s noise boxes from this 2004 EP on Fat Cat records. This was back in the day when one didn’t quite know what to expect from Black Dice; apart from the fact that the music would be heavy duty lysergic sonics. Distorted marching bands and crickets abound on this 13 minute piece. See also the other track from the EP titled ‘Trip Dude Delay’, found elsewhere on The Sentinel.

Nurse With Wound/Cyclobe – Angry Electric Finger 2 (Part 5)

In the early noughties, Nurse With Wound sent out some raw ingredients to be cooked up by three performers. 1 was Jim O’Rourke, 2nd was, and the 3rd was Cyclobe. The version worked on by this duo seems to travel to a lot more destinations than the other two .* We’re talking about the outer reaches of music, where it becomes pure sound. Anything familiar with either of these acts will know what to expect, and the alliance more than lives up to expectations. This is from 2004.

*however, please check out the version; it’s also wonderful.

Philip Jeck – Veil

From 2004’s ‘7’, the long and languid ‘Veil’ is another beautifully haunting and textured vinyl phantom dredged up from the netherworld.
