Reviews


Bob Drake (2003)


13 Songs And A Thing
Bizarre guitar rock from American singer-songwriter and solo artist, Bob Drake


Faust (2002)


Faust Tapes
Both 'Faust Tapes' and the consecutively released '71 Minutes' prove to be "pretty much essential" reissues from the seventies German early pioneers of ambience.


Fred Firth (2003)


Prints
Eclectic album from unpredictable experimental composer, Fred Frith, which throws in elements of synth-pop, metal, electronica, indie and jazz


Ground Zero (2002)


Plays Standards
"Weird melange of free jazz, golden oldies, TV themes and pop songs" from humorously oddball and experimental, but "brilliant" Japanese group



Lutz Glandien (2002)


5th Elephant
Heavy, but rewarding and decidely scary "cycle of... virtual electric songs that combine electronic aggression with Gothic and Industrial elements" from German composer Lutz Glandien


Lutz Glandien (2004)


Lost In Rooms
Confusing and bafflinhg new album from avant-garde musician and experimentalist, Lutz Glandien


Necks (2002)


Hanging Gardens
"Slightly creepy, very Australian, melange of underwater atmospherics and brain-scrambling time signatures" from Sydney based trio.


Necks (2003)


Aether
Slow-burning recently re-released electronica from Australian trio the Necks, which, while regarded by fans as their high-water mark, definitely proves to be something of an acquired taste



Roberto Iolini (2002)


Iolini
Meandering, but unfortunately rather dated sounding compilation from Sydney based composer and prize winner at Soundscapes 2000 Amsterdam, Robert Iolini


Tod Dockstader (2003)


Omniphony 1
Influential avant-garde early electronica that unfortunately proves to be less cutting-edge than its reputation belies
