Review: American industrial/noise producer Matthew Folden has been a longtime staple of Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions camp. Matter of fact, he first appeared on our our radar with the Back In EP on Fernow's now dormant diffusion imprint Bed Of Nails back in 2015. Babe Beer Bar Car compiles Folden's work between 2012 and 2015, previously only available on cassette format. Various greyscale experiments in minimalist electronics await you here: from the seething and saturated slow motion pulsations of "Somewhere In Miami" or "So Sue Me" to evocative ambient textures like "Loudmouth" or Zip It". There's even moments of what could even be considered IDM (ish!) like on "White Lighter."
Review: To tie in with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings, Brian Eno has decided to put out a new edition of his decidedly spacey 1983 ambient album "Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks", which started life as the soundtrack to a long-forgotten documentary about NASA's space program. The edition is rather special, not only because it contains a remastered version of the original set created by Eno, his brother Roger and regular collaborator Daniel Lanois, but also because it contains a second disc of previously unheard material. This is not old, though, but rather brand new recordings - described as "new interpretations of the film soundtrack" - made by the Lanois and the Eno brothers late last year in a similar style. In a word: essential.
Review: "Space Songs" was an album in the "Ballads For The Age of Science" or "Singing Science" series of scientific music for children from the late 1950s and early 1960s. Songs were written by Hy Zaret (lyrics) and Lou Singer (music). Space Songs was released in 1959 by Hy Zaret's label Motivation Records (a division of Argosy Music Corp.) and was performed by Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans.
Review: Karen O and Danger Mouse are both serial collaborators, so when this joint album was announced we weren't all that surprised. Even so, we never thought the resultant set would be quite as good as this. Atmospheric, rich and full of songs that variously touch on sweeping cinematic soundtracks, driving Motown soul, fuzzy funk-rock, vintage trip-hop and hazy electronica, "Lux Prima" manages to showcase the best of both artists' talents while refusing to settle on one neatly defined sound. The set's dizzying highs - particularly the near 10-minute title track - are almost breathtakingly good, and there's enough jaunty moments to offset the heart-aching melancholy and emotional pain that's barely concealed throughout.

Review: During the U.S leg of his 1995 Outside tour, David Bowie was supported by Nine Inch Nails. Trent Reznor and company not only opened the shows, but also joined forces with the legendary musican on joint performances of some of his songs. Now, some 24 years later, a recording of one of these legendary collaborative performances has finally been released. It's hugely evocative and atmospheric, with many of Bowie's great songs - particularly "Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)", "Hallo Spaceboy", "The Heart's Filthy Lesson", "The Man Who Sold The World" and "Under Pressure" - benefitting from Nine Inch Nails' low-end grunt and razor-sharp guitars.
