Fatcat Records Podcast – John Twells “This is an all-vinyl mix collecting the usual gaggle of sounds I feel work together, from the glacial electronics of Fabric (on John Elliott’s new Spectral Spools imprint) to the gloomy 4/4 of Suum Cuique and the sickly lo-fi R&B of How To Dress Well. I also managed to drop in an early peek at the new Ezekiel Honig album ‘Folding Up Into Itself’ which is out in May on Type! Enjoy.” – mixcloud.com/fatcatrecords

Label Of The Month: Optimo Music “The Glasgow based label run by JD Twitch of Optimo DJ and club night has long been a favourite of ours, with an ear for unearthing long neglected gems and working with some of the best new acts around. Recent highlights have included the brilliant Green Door Kids album, a collection of post punk/no wave disco classics laid down by a group of ten year olds, and Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle‚Äôs long unavailable The Spaces Between.” – sluttyfringe.com

You Were There: The Complete LCD SoundsystemLCD didn’t task themselves with a need to reflect the desires and thoughts of their audience, to be an emotionally nourishing extension of their listeners, as so many bands in the early 2000s aimed. They just strove to make good music— borrowing from and honoring their sources, not being afraid to risk failure or humiliation, not shying from grand gestures, perfecting their craft. When Murphy did turn to articulate his own feelings— about music, hipsterdom, scenes, human relationships, the need for connectivity, aging, death— he just so happened to do it so well that other people couldn’t help but relate.” – pitchfork.com
