The Hafler Trio

There are so many H3O records out there, finding one way of entry into such a mass is not easy. The directions of these works are also extremily unpredictable. Without the "illegal" and "unauthorized" shares, i must say i would have probably miss the... See full review

posted a review of Andrew Chalk & Timo van Luijk - Night Of The Experimental Film IV. 9 months ago
Well... let's say it simple : this recording is a masterpiece. Quiet different from what Van Luijk & Chalk do with Elodie, here you have a wide soundscape of distant winds and floatting tones, leading you into the deepest state of contemplative... See full review

I really wonder why the early LPs on Placebo are not reissued... This is really absurd to see the rare copies sold at such prices and this money will never goes to the musicians. Come one someone, do something about it !

From the early days to Sister, Sonic Youth were my absolute heroes and i sincerly thought by the time they were the best group of the world. I was so excited when Daydream Nation publication was announced and in trance when i bought my copy the day it... See full review

Excellent reissue, converting the original EP into a perfect LP in its full glory, adding 3 songs of a Peel Session done around the same time frame. These 3 songs were lost in an impossible to find CD and now, at last, availabale in such perfect... See full review

I'm not totaly fan of Charlatan works generaly, but this record is a real little masterpiece.

This recording is the reason why i really don't like Daydream Nation...
In 1989 Sonic Youth were still able to create these unique shimering and dissonant guitars soundscapes, and they were the only one band to play like this. But if they can play it... See full review

Indicate (2) - Whelm
posted a review of Indicate (2) - Whelm. about 1 year ago
A forgotten underrated project by Jim O'Rourke and Robert Hampson (Loop, Main). Nothing rock here, but one of the most fascinating composition of electrical tension and droning (drowning) soundscapes. One of the most beautiful experimental... See full review

I know vinyl is super fancy right now. I use to grow up with vinyl and love them. Now for this type of music, and considering how many complains about bad quality pressing of vinyl we have here, i would say the solution is obvious : buy and listen to... See full review

This is a true statement about such music and you are right, but i would add a little nuance. I love this music and experiencing it live is a magical experience. I was wondering too how it would be to have a single performance cut in 4 sections like... See full review

This tribal rock stuf is so amazing...! I think it might have been a very strong influence on early Nox, the french band. Their song "Sizabo" on the LP "Sessions 84 / 86 " sounds almost like a cover of Pre Fix songs on this 7". But Damn it, when will... See full review

Streams of density, hypnotic voices hidden behind veils of statics, ghosts in the electricity, blades... This record is a trip, a strong experience in the flux of amplification (recommended to any fan of NZ Corpus Hermeticum label)

The great Peel Sessions here give a glimps of how great this album whould have been with a better production. The sound is too clean and monolithic, makes all songs sort of similar. Frenzy and Wilful Day on the Peel Sessions are amazing !
