posted a review of The Caretaker - Theoretically Pure Anterograde Amnesia. over 9 years ago
This release might be the one, which along with the “vvmt24” finally nails V/Vm onto the hall of fame of influential moments in modern European music. To release a 6-double CD with one of the V/Vm aliases, the spearhead The Caretaker, is simply a way of ... See full review
posted a review of Else Marie Pade - Et Glasperlespil. over 9 years ago
Vey much of the music on this CD could be mistaken for fine work produced this year, it's sound is fresh and complex. Of course, since it was made between 1958 and 1964, there are some tell signs of its age. But moments of equipment limitation and funny ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Unattainable Text #1. over 9 years ago
Hail Hail! A very beautiful, clear slab of thick thick vinyl without any names save the label info. The 12" is a compilation, because there are a few style changes. Although probably arriving on deaf ears, for the most part, Diskono throws subtlety to ... See full review
posted a review of Mainpal Inv. - Hitachi. over 9 years ago
Goodiepal, Kraen Bysted, Kaori Imajo and Valerio Faggioni plays medieval wedding music with a whammy bar. Mainpal Inv. is a madman, --not "crazy" or "messed up", but a man who is upset. The more he learns about how things work, the more he becomes upset, ... See full review
posted a review of The Evader - No Hats Required EP. over 9 years ago
6 tracks of pure club-track minimalism.... Steve Bicknell produced, this EP has obvious references to Rob Hood's Minimal Nation, which, strictly speaking, is alright, as mister Hood frequently graces Bicknell's lost-nights with his presence.

a classic, classic, classic release on TVT.

A licensed version of the original Analogue Bublebath EP from Exeter's Mighty Force imprint. This is a four track slice of history with Richard James providing the epic Analogue Bubblebath, plus the much ... See full review
posted a review of Goodiepal - Gaeoudjiparl. over 9 years ago
Hail, Hail... Gæoudjiparl is the name used by Scandinavian out-there computer music wielder Goodiepal since 2002. Maybe Tine and I’m wrong but the only release credited under that name is this untitled double vinyl Gæoudjiparl compilation released by ... See full review
posted a review of Mainpal Inv.. over 9 years ago
Hail, Hail... Mainpal Inv. was a name used by Scandinavian, Goodiepal, in the years 2000 - 2002 mainly for the release of a 7”-series of manipulated jingle work called something like Mainpal Inv. Brands, which was not connected to any label. Around the ... See full review
posted a review of DAT Politics - Wow Twist. over 9 years ago
Tigerbeat / COS regulars Dat Politics return with an extremely silly album indeed - which is, of course, the reason we all love them. Shouty mentalist electro pop with a seemingly infinite amount of energy and tongue-in-cheek appeal. Imagine The Bash ... See full review
posted a review of Pimmon - Mort Aux Vaches. over 9 years ago
Pimmon delivers a powerful selection of tracks for the Mort Aux Vache series here. High pitched frequencies, crunchy sounds and distortion all collide with a more melodic sensibility that's very appealing. Pimmon's work certainly isn't for everyone, but ... See full review
posted a review of Pimmon - Curse of Evil Clown. over 9 years ago
I haven't heard any material from Pimmon for quite some time so it's lovely to hear this wonderful little EP on Australian label Meupe. Coming on a 3" CD it features 3 delectable tracks that sit at the more experimental end of the Electronica spectrum. ... See full review
posted a review of Tussle / Stranger & Capt. Delicious* - I'm An Indian Too / Punkfloydmovement. over 9 years ago
Split 12" here between Tussle and Stranger. Tussle's track 'I'm An Indian Too' has a strong nu wave feel but still retains a warm almost deep house atmosphere. Stranger's 'Pinkfloydmovement' has a fierce plucked bassline, also with nu wave leanings but ... See full review
posted a review of Jazzkammer* - Mort Aux Vaches. over 9 years ago
Jazzkammer pretty much stands for experimentation and here Jazzkammer provide a hardcore piece which will inundate your ears with piercing tones, harsh drones and some amazingly intense manipulations. If you like it challenging, then this is for you. Not ... See full review
posted a review of Jazzkammer* - Pulse. over 9 years ago
Jazzkammer provide a one track piece that's initially built from a couple of simple tones. But it soon moprhs into a more full sounding affair with clever manipulations and quirky tweaks. Better than 'pancakes' in my humble opinion.
posted a review of Kim Hiorthøy - This Record Can Not Set Me On Fire. over 9 years ago
Smalltown mainman and former Vertical Form artist Kim Hiorthøy comes up trumps with two quite different 10+ min tracks. The first is uplifting electronic jazz on a par with Atom Heart, Burnt Friedman etc. and the other a playful, borderline SID-chip / ... See full review
posted a review of Kim Hiorthøy - Hei Remixes Part 1. over 9 years ago
Three remixes of Kim Hiorthoy tracks taken from th album on Smalltown Supersound and featuring versions from Rune Grammofon's Alog and the ever mental Goodiepal or Gaoudjiparl under his Mainpal Inv. moniker. Alog take the original and strip it down then ... See full review
posted a review of Goodiepal - Goodiebag #G2P. over 9 years ago
Goodiebag#g2p contains very little info as to who´s taken part - apart from the promising ´relae musik´ comment on the insert. Drone machinations and more mad originality, a ultra moody classically structured cinematic piece.
posted a review of Goodiepal. over 9 years ago
Almost every appearence by this Faroish/ Danish enigma is part mad inventor's show-and-tell and part medieval magic show. At the Berlin M12 studio, Goodiepal/ Gaeoudjiparl whistled his mechanical birds to life, then transformed himself into a wolf and ... See full review
posted a review of Björk - Who Is It (Shooting Stars & Asteroids Mix By Bogdan Raczynski). over 9 years ago
Nice little release from Rephlex which sees Bjork's 'Who Is It' getting the remix treatment from Bogdan Raczynski. He's turned it into a none-too-chilled Electronica version with some choppy beats, crunchy sounds and amazingly detailed programming. Works ... See full review
posted a review of In Sync - Untitled. over 9 years ago
4 tracks from the great Insync here - feets firmly rooted in that 90's electronica sound. Having said that, 3 of them are pretty stripped in the beat department and have a real soundtrack feel to them, and quite a dark forboding soundtrack it is! the 4th ... See full review

Norways Steuea and Mr. Pal rounds off the Goodiebag/ Demonbag series with some crazed tracks - lodsa effects that hovers between the sane and insane with effortless ease. Insane beats, dark folky computer music and much much much more.TO DESCRIBE WHAT'S ... See full review
posted a review of Goodiepal / Per Høier - Demonbag #9NV. over 10 years ago
On Scale Goodiepal/ Gaeoudjiparl/ Mainpal Inv. creates a cross-breed electronic lo-fi post rock hybrid. Raw yet utilising subtle melodies to create an alien strand of instrumental hip-hop that Company Flow / Anti Pop could wreck shit over. Awesome. ... See full review

This can only be described as a load of nonsense. Another one of those Mainpal Inv. related picture discs that makes your eyes go weird and features some very strange audio content. It seems to be a live recording of some vocal singers but I have no idea ... See full review
posted a review of Goodiepal - Nag Nag Bacon. over 10 years ago
Goodiepal comes up trumps on this mini album on Skipp. A great combination of sweetly melodic sounds and gratuitous stupidity that's as potty as it is engaging. I don't know quite how he does it but he always manages to imbue his sounds with a humanity ... See full review
posted a review of Bjørn Svin + Goodiepal - Sincerely Christmas. over 10 years ago
One has to wonder how on earth the Goodiepal & Bjorn Svin ended up being signed to RCA / BMG back in 1997 with this hilariously good / bad release. What on earth was going through the minds of these major label moguls when they got them to sign on the ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Mort Aux Vaches. over 10 years ago
One can only speculate what goes on in the mind of Kristian Vester, but I imagine it's a wee bit chaotic at best and completely potty at worst. This album for Dutch stalwarts Staalplaat is so hard to actually describe that I'm really going to struggle. ... See full review
