Ykiki Beat

Ykiki Beat are a Japanese electronic indie-pop band, who put their own unique twist on a fairly well worn blueprint.

Look Vibrant

Shrouded beneath a cloak of dischord Look Vibrant dispense nuggets of pop gold. It is this contrast which makes this Montreal noise-pop band such a compelling proposition.

Moscow Olympics

Another tip-top release on the prolific and consistent Beko Disques. Moscow Olympics get the remixing treatment from Magnus Wahlstrom.


With a new LP on the Horizon (January 27th to be precise), Cymbals have released another track in to the ether.

Guest Mix No 8 - Voltage Black

Having recently featured on ESOJ, Voltage Black kindly agreed to furnish us with a Guest Mix. It is an absolute peach, sprawling in style and always interesting. Tracklisting below;

Susanna and the Magical Orchestra - Jolene
Matthewdavid - Epic Swan
Voltage Black - We, the Obsolete (singularity edit)
Micachu & The Shapes - Turn me well
Grauzone - Film 2
Laraaji - Dance #2 (excerpt)
Unknown - Unknown
Enablers - A not so pretty sight in Steinbeck country
Twinkling Stars - Nine Circles
Arthur Russell - You and me both
Shed - Estrange
Cluster - Rosa
Brian Eno - By this river (Voltage Black's re-edit)


Sydney, Brooklyn and London have all been bases for production duo Phondupe in the making of their new EP. The music itself comes from somewhere entirely different and far removed.

Inventive and oddball art-pop from London's Stats. Sounds unlike anything else we have heard this year.

Text Adventure

Wonderfully propulsive instrumental work from Glaswegian act 'Text Adventure'.

Happy Particles

A beautiful demo from Glasgow's Happy Particles. Fingers crossed for a new LP soon.

Samuel J

Not content with drumming for fine Sussex up and comers Harting who we featured late last year, Samuel J is also capable of luxuriant productions like this.


Los Angeles' Satchmode continue on their particularly sweet sounding path to renown.

Dream Curtain

After the frankly astonishing quality of 'Glowing' and 'This Landscape...' we have been waiting patiently for new material from Sweden's Dream Curtain. Thankfully the wait is over with this new release.

Lilies on Mars

Sardinian born but London based duo Lilies on Mars have a new LP due early next year and this cut of otherworldly pop is the perfect appetiser for it.


Warped and wistful retro-futurism from Kiwi producer Esher.

Linea Aspera

Exceptionally dulcet sounds akin to those produced on Ullrich Schnauss' seminal 'A Strangely Isolated Place' LP. Transportative music from Chicago's Linea Aspera.

Adult Jazz

The old cliche goes 'this track has more ideas packed in to it than the average bands LP'. In this case it is completely true. Overtly intellectual music, delivered with panache.

Hella Better Dancer

A smart dose of fuzz on the new one from Hella Better Dancer via the excellent Beautiful Strange label.

Dios Mio

A welcome return from Londoners Dios Mio. Nurturing a vast sound.

Be Forest

Tremendous new material from the tribally inclined Italian wooze troupe Be Forest.

Keep On Dancin's

Expertly delivered slow-core haze from Brisbane's Keep on Dancin's.
