All posts for Music in 2013


As The Veneer Of Democracy Starts To Fade (Mark Stewart)

The best bad-sounding record you'll ever hear.

Samuraiera (Various Artists / Kaoru Inoue)

A fistful of "lost grooves from the land of the Rising Sun."

06:21:03:11 UP EVIL (Front 242)

The first ("male") half of Front 242's crowning moment.

One + One By One (Minimal Compact)

Israel's best-known contribution to "post-punk" takes the bad taste out of my mouth left by the term.

Improvisation (Derek Bailey)

One of free music's cornerstones, an album of heedless challenges and curious pleasures.

Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (Aphex Twin)

An electronic pearl, an album for every home and every pair of ears.

Keith Jarrett: Hymns / Spheres

The full version of Keith Jarrett's highly experimental organ album, finally restored to life on CD.

Mekanïk Destruktïẁ Kommandöh (Magma)

The greatest moment from one of prog-rock's most maverick acts.

Last Rights (Skinny Puppy)

How many soundtracks are needed for the end of the world? One ought to suffice.

The Land of Rape and Honey (Ministry)

The first full flowering of Ministry's foul ferocity, and possibly its best.

Cleanse Fold And Manipulate (Skinny Puppy)

On my first and pivotal encounter with a crucial if terribly-named band.

Intents And Purposes (The Bill Dixon Orchestra)

This one-of-a-kind jazz composition, originally in incredibly limited release, is now back on CD.
