  Pocket - "Ready To Go"
7 inch with free CD
Orchestra Pit Recording Co. #1
 

The lead track from the single “Ready To Go” should strike a chord with those among us that realise mortality is a reality, but that eventuality should be more than just a formality. Musically it surfs the skirmish that is the primal pleasure of pure rock n’ roll, but with an introspection befitting of someone whose attitude (to life) does not come in the shape of a trilby hat from upper Brick Lane, drawing a pipeline twixt Eddie Cochran and…something else entirely.

"Ymir" LP
Heat Retention Records #20
 

Recorded in 3 hot days of sonic abandon. London dirt drone rock duo Temperatures nail their souls to these 12" of wax presented here. In its grooves they embark on a lyrical and sometimes hysterical bad trip of ham-fisted funk, industrial dub, and passages of wordless contemplation. All live with no overdubs - what you hear is how it was, minus the sweat on our brows and the bees in their bonnets. Read more here: Heathen Harvest review

  George Steeltoe Ensemble
"Church of Yuh" LP
Heat Retention Records #14
 

Made up of a revolving company of musicians, performing artists and dancers, the George Steeltoe Ensemble can loosely be compared to the Respective Arkestras of Sun Ra and Horace Tapscott. The same communal sensibility thunders from the grooves of the Ensemble's Church of Yuh debut, a passionate gust of free jazz and experimental manipulation that sounds like the Art Ensemble of Chicago jamming with Jackie-O Motherfucker.

  Our Pheromones Are All Loose
4th harmonic / Encaustic CDR
 

An overview of London's lo-fi electronic scene, this may not get cockney chests swelling with pride but there's enough to give cause for optimism. Noise informs much of the material. DJ Tendraw & The Gypsies Dog's circuit-bent squeals are the closest the collection comes to power electronics, and both Flames and Cyclamen hark back to 80s cassette experimentalism with their dirt encrusted ritual dronescapes. On a laptop tip, Patten's beatific glitchology blows up periodically into mild gusts of distortion.
There are two really fine pieces here: Oscillatorial Binnage balance acoustic and processed tones with flair and absurdist humour to create a kind of breakneck World music/noise hybrid. But far and away the best track is tapesplice maestro Sculpture's "Noze Musk, the best piece of twitchy splatter since DAT Politics' Wow Twist. The collection is rounded of nicely with Richard Thomas holding a mic out of the window of a speeding car, producing the familiar distorted roar favoured by many noisicians without having to deal with the nasty business of having to stick a contact mic in his mouth.

3 inch CD single

Those singing charmers tell us tales of lost love, libraries and how to be a gentleman. Against shuffling rhythms and butter-melting harmonies there will be no Last Tango in Paris just a taste of a world free of war, famine and of course, bad guys.

Split 7 inch single
4th7002 / Six String Recordings
 

Temperatures and Mobile Unit split single, available as a limited edition 7" in hand-stickered sleeve. Temperatures are a duo from London, beginning their mutant strain of dirt-rock in 2004. The freaked-out space jam presented on this disc entitled "Kakorr" was recorded on the fly sometime last year in a boho garret in South London. Bass fuzz and synth tones collide saturating all detail over some serious voodoo percussion. As the track breaks down the whole mix transforms into red-hot lava and... (more)

  Limn EP
4thCD002
 

This 4 track EP by the young 5 piece instrumental band Limn included the single most exciting piece of music I've heard in the last 6 months- "In The Presence Of Autofluorescence"- a glorious mixture of choppy minimalist riffing which builds towards a teasing and ultimately irresistable tune played on guitar and vibraphone.... watch this band.
