  • Clickable Encre


    CD / Encre / Clapping Music

    Encre (French for 'Ink') is French artist Yann Tambour. He sounds like Katerine if Phillipe Katerine idolized Matmos and Mum instead of Serge Gainsbourg. Arab Strap and My Bloody Valentine fans will also find plenty to grasp onto in Encre's sound.

    Los Chicharrons

    12" / Papas Got A Brand New Pigbag (Fifi Meets the Zombie) / Tummy Touch

    An incredible Vince Ray sleeve and a cover of the 1981 Pigbag classic "Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag" make this 3 track 12" pretty darn fine.

  • Clickable Donna Regina

    Donna Regina

    CD / Northern Classic / Karaoke Kalk

    I could play 'Northern Classic' over and over without feeling anything but joy. There are no 'skip' songs, and the sound is both chilly cold and lazy warm.

  • Clickable Malaria!


    CD / Compiled 1981 - 1984 / Moabit Music

    As this new-wave revival seduces another generation to its robotic dancefloor repetitions and shadowy sexuality, Malaria! should be an immediate reference point. More than any of the bands of their ilk, Malaria! shows that dance music, and pop music for that matter, before being sexy, need to be dangerous.
