Going over new releases/albums that came out in May – one more time! See part 1 here, part 2 here and part 3 here.


Graham Dunning – Panopticon (Every Contact Leaves a Trace)

‘Half-Life’, all in-game sounds replaced with samples from 90s rave tracks and sample CDs.

Outstanding art and mastering by @AlexBPArt and @angelbbgrrl420 respectively.

Wether – Heir Bud (Strategic Tape Reserve)

Don’t worry. The content of the “Heir Bud” tape isn’t as scary as this image suggests.

Vandal Moon – Black Kiss (Starfield Music)

With a sound seeded from post-punk, goth and new wave, they are shaped as much by their use of drum machines and synthesizers as much as guitars and the inevitable deep baritone vocals. – Electricity Club

Mosquitoes – Minus Objects (Ever Never Records)

Moldy electronics and haunted gurgles. Throw them in the pile of “somewhat newer UK acts that make me think music is great” alongside Triple Negative, Still House Plants, Soft Tissue, and Guttersnipe.

Sex Swing – Type II (Rocket Recordings)

The music Sex Swing makes is something in the psych/noise/postpunk spectrum but it is pretty bleak, their is an unnerving atmosphere throughout the whole album. The thing that does it most for me is the sax in the music, the music is already very layered but with the addition of Colin Webster’s sax the music is downright scary. – Fuzzy Sun

Archie Shepp – Ocean Bridges (Redefinition Records)

The new album from Archie Shepp is extraordinary. Ocean Bridges, out today via Redefintion Records, finds the legendary sax player teaming up with his nephew, the rapper Raw Poetic, and DJ Damu the Fudgemunk, along with D.C. bass wizard Luke Stewart. The record surprises and pleases, and seems exactly the sort of thing designed to give hope during these bad times. It’s also the rarest sort of mix of genres that actually works, and doesn’t feel forced. And genres are bridged here, quite literally, and a family.
