Walter Gross – Vestige

Experimental noise merchant Walter Gross has just released his new album, “Vestige”. Known for his instrumental soundscapes and DIY approach, the new album see’s Gross treading new ground, incorporating more eerie and distorted vocals into his music. This musical step forward evokes the industrial, post-punk sounds of Suicide, krautrock, shoegaze, experimental psychedelia, while still remaining firmly Gross’ own sound.
“Vestige” is out now on limited edition cassette and digital, a definite must for fans of interesting, uncompromising, experimental music.

REVBJELDE – REVBJELDE

Mixing up experimental noise, jazz, ambient soundscapes with pastoral psychedelic folk music, Berkshire musicians Richard Bentley, Roy Goss & Alan Gubby have created an enthralling debut album.
For every hint of floral British countryside, there is a healthy amount of electronics and dark undertones, giving “Revbjelde” a unique sound. Breathing modern life into medieval folk madness. Very British, magical and mythical, very Radiophonic workshop, and most importantly, very enjoyable.

Torb The Roach & Floppy McSpace “Tape Echo – Gold Floppies”

torbOk, so we don’t know a lot about these guys, but anyone who promotes their new release with a 16 minute movie as good and as freaky as this, deserves to get written about.
Their sound is lo-fi, yet traditional hip hop with added twists and turns creating a unique sound. As the title suggests, there’s a real use and fondness of the SP1200 and more analogue sounds and techniques adding to the warmth and hardness of the production. Released early next month on King Underground records, you can pre-order your copy now and just watch the film, it’s awesome!
