Ulaan Markhor :: Ulaan Markhor (Soft Abuse)

This self-titled album is the work of one Steven R. Smith, a Californian who has been recording since the mid-nineties and has previously explored East European and psychedelic sounds as Hala Strana and Ulaan Khol, respectively.

SIC & Buzz :: Double review (Dark Entries)

Dark Entries is one of the premier synth wave and post punk revivalist labels. A loaded statement, but a fair one. Boss Josh Cheon has the knack, the ability to source and resuscitate ambiguous analogue scores and gritty minimalism. Once more, the San Fran label is crossing the Atlantic to revive two Euro obscurities. I’ve […]

UV PØP :: Anyone for Me / Bendy Baby Man (Genetic Music)

For electronic zealots Sheffield is the bastion of UK Techno, Warp Records and Bleep. But, before the town went purple and TDR there was a decent synth wave and punk scene. UV PØP are monuments of this tradition, somewhat lost artifacts. Rock and electronic sounds melt into a Northern Indie stew. Genetic sidestepping some of […]
