Jason Furlow – Last Man Standing

Last year saw the return of Sebash, one half of the classic hip hop freak funkers New Kingdom, via the excellent Mongrels album, “Attack The Monolith”. Now the other half, Nosaj aka Jason Furlow returns with a brand new cassette single, “Last Man Standing”.
Jason lays his unmistakable raspy vocals over a cinematic, electronic, sharp yet laid back hip hop rhythm to great effect. The b-side, “Modern Man” features fellow electro freakster CX Kidtronik, so you know this is going to be something special.
Released on the 30th of June via Dub Ditch Picnic on limited cassette single and digital. If seeing is believing then I believe!

Yuri Morozov – Strange Angels

“Strange Angels” is a compilation of 1970’s experimental & electronic music recorded in soviet Russia by Yuri Morozov. Banned by the KGB for its esoteric content and references to forbidden spiritual texts, Yuri recorded over 46 albums between the 1970s until his death in 2006. Only available on cassettes passed around in secret within the Russian music underground until now.
The music on offer here ranges from the beat driven “Shall Come Forth The Demons”and “Inexplicable (pt 4)” to the more ambient sounds of “Return To Atlantis” and the prog experiments such as “Gita Shakti”. Regardless of where Morozov takes you, the heavily experimental and early electronic sound is the overwhelming theme, creating music that is very much of it’s time yet it still sounds fresh today.
If you have any interest in early electronics, prog rock, psychedelic rock, experimental music the suggest you pick this album up, you won’t regret it!

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.
