peur bleue records is pleased to present the imminent release of gohan s ep, ‘stabbed in konya’. you ll find a private link below for listening and downloading the entire ep on soundcloud.it describes a tragic journey into a fictional depiction of konya - a raucous and hostile anatolian city torn apart by mysticism and conservatism. the ep explores a landscape of detroit electro vibrations and dodgy murmurs whilst offering gracious melodic digressions along the way. after the album peur and the ep hedge fund released in 2012, gohan comes back with a new imaginary soundtrack on the edge of violence and grace, exploiting harmonic and texture flaws, enigmatic collages and a grinding bassline.
THE MYSTERIOUS TALE OF HOW I SHOUTED WRONG-EYED JESUS! (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp UK22.11.17
steeped in the influence of flannery o’connor and tom waits, the album wrong-eyed jesus revealed jim white as a spiritual anatomist of the american south. no such place ups the ante revealing a broader, more diverse collection of songs about rage and redemption, depravity and dreams, dead cars and broken hearts. with tracks produced by morcheeba, sade co-founder andrew hale, and q-burns abstract message, along with stellar remixes by japanese underground guru, sohichiro suzuki of world standard and yellow magic orchestra fame, jim finds himself reveling in the unlikely zeitgeist of the new album. “this is a crackpot love letter to all those lost souls out there like me who won’t settle for wrong, but have no clue how to get to right.”
stop following the mega-hit lets go dancing and the micro-hit fever, nightclub marks the third release from techno truth-tellers tiga vs. audion. to announce the ep, tiga recently gave a lengthy audio press conference while driving a turbo company car all the way down to city hall. a partial transcript follows: on the inspiration living in contemporary society? it’s a joke. but whats no joke is that rough times call for rough customers, and this ep finds two top techno producers in the mood for ballsiness, reflecting the times with a harder-edged sound, harder-edged artwork, and harder-edged calls for our leaders to remember that the dance floor was built on unity, plurality, and unshacklable animality.
‘satan’s slave’ is the latest release from moscovitch music (terror/prey), the brainchild of producer/compiler joel martin (quiet village/velvet season & the hearts of gold/maxxi & zeus) whose ‘de wolfe music’ compilations ‘bite hard/bite harder’ are considered essential primers of the library genre. this holy grail black-magic british jazz soundtrack from 1976 is the most requested movie score of cult film composer and top english jazz saxophonist/flautist - john scott (symptoms/wake in fright/craze). for aficionados of rare library music and obscure horror soundtracks this is an essential album.

glasvegas justify all the hype with a truly astounding debut album. they pull the same trick that the white stripes pull, by understanding and being influenced by the history of music and not trends, they capture the essential zeitgeist of what makes primal rock n roll so appealing and important. jack white knows that you ve got to be influenced by more than just the top 40, so do glasvegas. they are influenced by originators, not imitators, and that is why their stripped down, feedback drenched, melodic pop and no nonsense rock n roll has the impact it does. their wall of sound is under the influence of phil spector, jesus and mary chain, oasis, the smiths, beach boys and elvis presley, and yet it is completely and absolutely transcendental.
