Wata Igarashi – Kioku EP

Igarashi’s ultra-psychedelic swirl of techno is unbelievably idiosyncratic, customarily a chaotic monolith of twisting and twirling electronics evolving in such a way that, when mixing, it’s hard enough to keep your head screwed on let alone try choose tracks that straddle it.

日野繭子 [Mayuko Hino] – Lunisolar

Leaving unfathomably harsh, emotionless and unstructured noise in the late-80's/90's, Hino understands that shock-value noise has no place in the present day. I was never expecting such noise coming into Lunisolar, however, knowing her involvement in the legendary "psychedelic" Japanoise group, C.C.C.C., but there was no denying it was going to be rough.

Haley Heynderickx – I Need to Start a Garden

As bittersweet as realising you’ve spelt her last name incorrectly for about the 15th time, Haley Heynderickx’s debut is as hopeful as it is inwardly existential. I Need to Start a Garden is driven by her confidently soft voice and peculiar guitar passages fraught with techniques that entwine traditional American primitivism, signaling an impressive sense … Continue reading Haley Heynderickx – I Need to Start a Garden
