Fridge - Surface noise and electric piano

Kieren 'four tet' Hebdon's post rock band released an album of splintered beauty back in 2001..

'Happiness' This is a song that was only on the Japanese release. Lots more mp3's are: here.

Subtle - Swanmeat

This song has been boshing my ears up good for the last few weeks. Subtle's debut album for Lex 'a new white' was far more focused than the freeform mess the preceding had hinted at. A live band that defies genres, doseone conjures up a storm with his rapping, taking on the music with amazing results. This song is from 'Wishingbone' an album of remixes and rarities, including work for Beck and Ms. John Soda. It also includes a dvd of the award winning videos for the singles by sssr.

Japanther - I IQ

A two piece band from the usa.. sounding like simultaneously angsty and up for a huge fucking party. From 'master of pigeons' the d.i.y approach pays off big time.

(?) -Readabook

read a book, read a book, read a motherfucking book. That's all you need to know.

machine drum - reel cleer

prefuse 73 meets boards of canada and everyone cheers. From 'Now you know' a glitchy beast of an album that's perfect for that part of a bbq party when you realise you've burnt your mouth on something nasty.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Starcleaner

simple and beautiful. My favourite song of theirs. If you haven't already, point your mouse *here* Pretty much everything they've done, available for free download.
