gullbuy music review

  • Atjazz


    CD / LabFunk / Mantis Recordings

    The sound is in league with The Bobby Hughes Experience, Kid Loco, or bands on the Compost, Pork, Grand Central, or Yellow labels.

  • The Bees

    The Bees

    7inch / 'No Trophy' b-w 'No Trophy (version)' / We Love You

    The A-side is a pop vocal reggae cut, the B-side is an excellent dub version which I like very much.

    Club Africa 2

    CD / various / Strut

    Killer hand struck drum sounds, funky beats, vocal embellishments, and fender bass that I love so much.

  • Julie Driscoll

    Julie Driscoll and the Brian Auger Trinity

    CD / If Your Memory Serves You Well - The Giorgio Golmelsky Sessions / Dressed To Kill

    When Steampacket folded in '66 Brian Auger formed a new version of The Brian Auger Trinity; Sometimes Driscoll sang, sometimes Auger. This CD compiles tracks from these collaborations but also some that pre-date that period by a year or so.

  • Bebel Gilberto

    Bebel Gilberto

    12inch / Eyes / Tempo (remixes) / Ziriguiboom

    Much less mainstream than most of the stuff on her full length. My favorite of the mixes is the vocal mix by Chari Chari.

  • Pop-Off Tuesday

    Pop-Off Tuesday

    7inch / 'Unworldly' b-w 'The Sea and Poison' & 'Toilettes Imagination' / Pickled Egg

    Pop-Off Tuesday especially fit in this weeks gullbuy in light of Ming and Mum, whose sounds seem to bear distant relation to the three tracks found here.

  • Louie austen

    Louie Austen

    12inch / 'Amore (I Love You)' b-w 'Grab My Shaft (feat. Peaches)' / Cheap

    There are 2 new songs on this, both living up to and exceeding what you might have hoped for after listening to his 'Consequences' CD on Cheap.

  • Hecate


    LP / The Magick of Female Ejaculation / Zhark

    Put the repetitive, didactic Alec Empire & Digital Hardcore out of your field of hearing and listen to music that really burns.

  • Knifehandchop


    7inch / 'Dance Mix 2000' b-w 'Don't Say a Word' / Irritant

    'Dance Mix 2000' is a collage of Destiny's Child, Eminem, Pink, and The Vengaboys put back together into a cleverly flowing cut.

  • Ocean Club

    [komfort.labor] presents Ocean Club

    CD / various / WMF

    17 songs which sit together quite well without sharing a common sound. A few of the songs are available of other CDs you can easily find, though they meld into the track listing with new life.

  • Lawrence


    12inch / Teaser / Kompakt

    A steady beat, a rollicking looped sound like Kevin Shield's finest hour, a slight female vocal with an intriguing accent, and a dreamy feel you could close your eyes to.

  • Ming


    CD5 / Interior Escalator / Doxa Records

    Ming sound similar to the Berlin band Quarks. Both have female vocals and 'pop' structured electronic sounds. Both have an instrumental or two mixed in the bunch.

  • Mum


    12inch / Remixed / TMT Entertainment

    I can't wait to see where Múm take us. All I know is that I'm going with them...
